Products I’ve Emptied in May: Reviews

L – R:

Andrew Barton – The Ultimate Blonde Brightening & Rehydrating Shampoo and Seperate Conditioner

I bought these as they were on offer in Asda a few months ago when I was going through a very dry phase with my hair and having lots of breakage. My hair is naturally a light brown/dark blonde colour which is colour treated with regular highlights at the hairdressers. This shampoo and conditioner appealed to me because of its claims of brightening and rehydrating the hair; the pink bottles were also pretty cute.

The products have a lovely uplifting lemon scent which was enjoyable to use in the shower and they did leave my hair feeling softer and easier to manage. I am definitely looking to repurchase both. Great for blonde colour treated hair.

Liz Earle – Skin Repair Moisturiser – Normal/Combination

As you probably know I am a massive fan of Liz Earle skincare products and this moisturiser does not disappoint! I have since repurchased and opted for the Dry/Sensitive type as I did find this moisturiser lacked something for my skin – I need the thicker texture of the dry/sensitive version to give my skin the moisture boost it needs. Great moisturiser – Liz Earle also has a Skin Repair Moisturiser to suit all skin types. 

Lush – It’s Raining Men Shower Gel

I absolutely loved using this in the shower and felt sad when I squeezed the last drop from the bottle! Definitely need to repurchase. This has a wonderful creamy honey scent (think Lush Honey I Washed The Kids Soap) and the gel transforms into a soft creamy foam with a little water, leaving my skin clean and soft – leaving no irritation at all. I have very sensitive skin so have to be careful what products I use in the shower. Love it. Another winner from Lush.

Clinique – Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum

I got this as a free sample in a magazine this month and has been using this twice a day ever since. This is my first experience of using a serum. I used two pumps and warmed it with my fingers before gently patting and tapping it into my skin – it absorbed instantly leaving my skin smooth and ready for a heavier moisturiser. I enjoyed using this but I do not know if it made any difference to the texture of my skin… I guess the next couple of weeks without using the serum will tell me if the serum made any difference! If I wanted to purchase a 30ml pump it will set me back £48 which I think is rather pricey… This will need some more thought before I purchase! 

Hope you have enjoyed. Have you tried any of these products? Let me know your thoughts!
