I can honestly say that I won't be repurchasing any of this...well except my seeing devices. Go my eyes. 


Garnier | Pure Active Micellar Water Oily Skin | 400ml [£4.99, Boots]
I love this make-up remover. It really does the job and doesn't completely dry my skin out. However. Yep the plastic thing. I can't overlook that anymore. 

Emma Hardie | Age Support Radiance Face Mask | 75ml [£36, Spack NK]
For the price I paid for the mask, I am horrified what it did. Moisturise? No. It left me with dry patches and just wasn't all that great. 

Bourjois | 123 Perfect Colour Correcting | [£9.99, Boots]
I love this. I miss this. I wish I could buy this again. If you don't care about plastics buy it. However.... if you do then stare wistfully at it in your local shop. 

Indeed Labs | Hydraluron Moisture Booster Face Serum | 30ml [£24.99, Boots]
DECIEM | Booster Low Molecular HA | [£18,.00, Deciem]

Natures Ingredients | Coconut Shower Gel | 250ml [£2.00, Marks and Spencer]
I think I've said this before, but shower gel is shower gel. It cleans your body and smells okay, but in reality there is  no reason to splurge on something you wash down the drain.

The Body Shop | Hemp Hand Protector | 30ml [£5.00, The Body Shop]

Nuxe | Reve de Miel Nourishing Lip Balm | 15g [£10.00, Marks and Spencer] treat yourself. (well i don't completely endorse the plastic lid thing but it's an incredible product).

Wideye | Rehab Day Hand Cream | 50ml [£4.95, Wideye]
This was a lovely christmas present from my aunt and I have since re-purposed the pot to store my used safety razors. As a general rule this brand has a great ethos behind it and preferable to some of the more 'high-street' options.

Superdrug | Cocoa and Vanilla Body Scrub | 200ml [£4.99, Superdrug]

Paul Mitchell | Dry Wash | 50ml [£10.75, Look Fantastic]
Firstly can we go over that I spend 11 pounds on 50ml of dry shampoo. Allow me to introduce you to corn starch. You are so welcome. 

Badedas | Shower Gel 200ml | [£2.29, Superdrug]
The smell of this shower gel reminds me of my nan. I have no idea why but it's weirdly nostalgic. But, unfortunately plastic. Getting there.

H&M | Perfume Roll on - Intuition | [£6.99, H&M]
I'm quite disappointed in my self here. This was one of those 'oh look how cheap that is, better buy it' - and as expected it was gross.

H&M | Perfume Roll on - Revelation | [£6.99, H&M]
I'm quite disappointed in my self here. This was one of those 'oh look how cheap that is, better buy it' - and as expected it was gross.

Balance Me | Lip Balm | [£5, Boots]
another lip balm, this one is tinted, tasted nice and actually added moisture. however i'm gonna say the p word again and ruin all our days. yup. we can't use this. 

Head & Shoulders | Classic Clean Shampoo | 1000ml [£7.00, Amazon]
I purchased this in response to someone thinking that going brunette was a good idea. Doh. I was using this, mixed with baking soda to create a hair mask and leave it on for an hour or so. What a terrible thing to do to my hair. I'm so sorry. 

Bleach London | Reincarnation Mask | 200ml [£6.49, Superdrug]
This is my absolute favourite conditioning mask. It smells so nice, and actually conditions bleached hair. I needed it in response to the mask. 

Acuvue |1 Day Astigmatism | 1 month supply [£43.00, Boots]
Why am I blind? I've actually switched over to a bi-weekly option which means they're cheaper and make less rubbish. Yes!


Well. As I'm still working my way through my collection, I'm shocked by how long things actually last and how we're encouraged to buy new things.
