June and July empties

It’s the start of a new month, which means it’s empties time! I completely forgot to write one for June, which means we have a bumper crop of used up products. There are 4 skincare, 3 body products, 6 makeup, and 2 haircare, most of them are even full size. Products are from brands such as Clinique, Batiste, Lush, Bare Minerals, Bourjois and much much more. Keep reading for my reviews on all of these products. Some of these products were sent to me from brands and PR companies, and those have been marked with an asterix – however my opinion is always honest.

Salux Cloth

Salux Cloth – the ultimate exfoliator!

Today I want to sing the praises of the Salux Cloth – this is the ultimate exfoliator! What is a salux cloth, you ask? It’s a nylon bath towel, originating from Japan. It exfoliates your skin and promotes improved blood circulation. Salux cloths create a great lather as well so you don’t need to use much product. It’s kind of similar to the texture of a synthetic bath poof, but it rinses and dries much more easily so it’s more hygienic. I’ve been using it to combat my Keratosis Pilaris (‘chicken skin’), and it has done wonders! It’s effective for exfoliating for people without KP as well, so if you want baby smooth skin, keep reading.

June empties

As my no-buy continues, I’ve been finishing more products. During June I used up 6 full size products – all skincare in one sense or another, from face to hands to body. They are: Soap and Glory The Breakfast Scrub, Trilogy Rosehip oil, Sukin sensitive facial moisturiser, Indeed Labs Hydraluron, Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy body wash, and Anatomicals Help The Paw Hand Cream. Keep reading for mini reviews on all of these products, and whether I would repurchase them!

Physiogel Skincare Review

Physiogel Skincare have recently released two ranges of products which have been formulated to relieve dry sensitive skin – the Daily Moisture Therapy range, and the Calming Relief range. I do suffer from dry and sensitive skin, so when I was contacted by Physiogel and asked if I’d like to review them, I was excited by this opportunity. Firstly so that I could try to combat these skin issues, but also so I could help readers out by sharing a review of how it worked for me. As someone with dry sensitive skin, people love to try and suggest products to use, but recommendations are hard to believe unless they actually have the same problems. Hopefully this review will be helpful for any of you who suffers from these problems too.
