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!

May Empties

I’m still on a no-buy, as I detailed in this post, but for the purposes of this post my evaluation of whether I would repurchase a product is as if I could afford to shop – and as if I didn’t have a ridiculous stash of products as it is.

The smell was amazing, I almost wanted to eat it – it’s a maple scent, and it smells just like maple syrup. She said it not only smelled great but made her skin smooth, and I was sold. My skin on my legs, upper arms, and butt can be rough, so I was excited by the prospect of making them nice and soft. The tub is 300ml, and it cost me $18.95 Australian dollars, ($20.50 NZD) at Mecca Cosmetica. Unfortunately Mecca in New Zealand doesn’t stock Soap and Glory, but I have emailed them asking them to, so hopefully they’ll realise there’s a demand and stock it. That might be wishful thinking though. I’ve been using it once or twice a week now for a month and I don’t seem to have made much of a dent, so I think it will last me for quite a while. Soap and Glory describe it on their website as follows:  SMOOTHIE […]
