Normally I start these posts with a spiel about how quickly the previous month has gone past… but let’s face it today has been the longest January in the world. It feels like we’ve been in 2021 for years already. But putting that aside, I managed to finish so many products this month! You know when you have those moments where you somehow just finish up everything all at once? Yeah, this was one of those months…
So I’ve got haircare, skincare, makeup and even some random things like Collagen pills. But all in all, I hope you enjoy…
TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner
So… ‘A recent class-action lawsuit emerged with Unilever and Conopco Inc. for its TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Color Shampoo for containing DMDM hydantoin, which is believed to cause hair loss and scalp irritation for consumers.’ While I noticed 0 negative side effects when I was using it, it does make me a little nervous.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Serum
We all know I’m obsessed with this product! My hair just doesn’t feel as soft and glossy without it and I’ll 100% be repurchasing for as long as nothing else comes along!
TRESemme Pro Collection Intensive Mask
This hair mask was fine… like it did the job and left my hair feeling soft, but I don’t think I’ll be shouting to the heavens about it! For the £5 price tag it’s pretty good though, so when and if it’s on offer I may pick it back up again
Provoke Touch of silver Toning Treatment Mask
I LOVE this toner! It really helps keep my brassy tones under control! It smells a little funky while it’s in, but this is such an underrated product!
Florence By Mills Get That Grime Face Scrub
This was such a lovely easy and light face scrub! You can tell that this brand is suited for younger or more sensitive skin. However, considering its target audience, the price tag is quite high!
Superdrug Vitamin E Eye Cream
This is one of those eye creams that is just nice. It does the job and I find myself gravitating back to it (because it’s so cheap), but if you really suffer from dark circles or puffiness, then maybe go for something a little heavier.
Paw Paw Multipurpose Soothing Balm
This is just a really nice all purpose brand! It is a great lip balm as well as a balm for all sorts of other things!
L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask
This is the first of these L’Oreal masks I’ve tried and I have to say I’m SO impressed! It really helped to detoxify my skin and leave everything feel super clean and fresh! I’d love to try some of the other masks in this range!
Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil
This was a lovely light face oil that absorbs super quickly! Such a great face oil to use in the morning under makeup, as it doesn’t interrupt foundation at all! It’s the first thing I’ve tried from Drunk Elephant and I can’t wait to try more! Just wish they weren’t so expensive!
NIP + FAB Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads
This is my favourite toner! It does such an amazing job of helping with texture and everything on my skin and I’ve been using them for YEARS! They’re one of those skincare products I take a break from here or there (maybe to try something else, or just to give my skin a break), but when I go back to it, my skin loves me for it
REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic
Another great toner! I found this really helps with redness and pores. I don’t particularly suffer with bad pored, but sometimes I do have a weird amount of redness and so this kind of product really comes in handy!
L’Occitane Invigorating Face & Eye Mask
I loved this sample! It left my skin looking and feeling fresh! While I only got one use out of it, it was a really lovely face mask. However, it is expensive, and I’m not 100% convinced it’s worth the money!
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Extatic Mascara
LOVE this Mascara! I’ve only finished two makeup empties this month, but they’re both favourites and both things I would repurchase all the time! Gives great volume and length and is a good dupe for the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara!
Max Factor Brow Shaper Brow Pencil
Another classic this is an amazing brow pencil for its cost! A perfect shade match for me, this is a super fine brow pencil that lets you draw on fake eyebrow hairs with little effort. My only negative thing is really that you finish it really fast!
Radox Stress Relief Bath Therapy
This is just a classic. It’s a really nice bubble bath and I already have 3 more from them
Mitchum Shower Fresh Antiperspirant
I’m the kind of person who buys whatever is on offer to be fair, but this one was pretty good
Correxiko Marine Collagen Capsules*
A full review will be coming on this at some point, but I found it did actually work! Not in the way I thought it would (as in my skin barely changed), but my hair and nails both thrived on it and I gained muscle at a rate I wasn’t in previous months before I was taking this… even though my exercise changed very little.
B. Makeup Brush Cleanser
I LOVE this brush cleanser! And B. have actually repackaged a lot since I bought this (as I batch bought a lot) so I can’t comment as to whether the new one is just as good, but I’d love to try it. This is the perfect product for spot cleaning your eyeshadow brushes
Colgate Advanced White Toothpaste
I mean it’s toothpaste. I swap between this and Oral B, but not sure what else I can say really!
*Gifted, but all opinions are my own
And there you have it, all my empties from the first month of 2021. It’s been a bit of a wild month not only globally but in my own life, and I can’t wait to share with you what’s been going on in my life in my next post… my January favourites and updates!
What have you finished up this month?
