August beauty trash

August beauty trash

Another month another 10 empty products. This June I run out of many beauty essentials which can only mean one thing more beauty shopping. 

Body

St Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan is one of those trendy products at the moments that come with mix bag of reviews. As mentioned previously I like this product and now that is finished I will most certainly repurchase it. No it did not bother me standing in the shower for 3 minutes and I kind of like the light brown skin glow it gives to my skin. I did not experienced any strakes or fake bake smell. This 200ml bottle lasted me for about 8 full body applications, which is a bit pricy but I guess that’s how much it costs to be lazy with your fake tan.

St Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan Veet wax strips Xen Tan Luminous Gold Gel review

Tutti Fruirry Watermelon & Melon body scrub was one of those impulsive holiday buys, once I realize that I forgot to pack any body wash/scrub/lotion product. It has a strong melon scent and quite gritty liquid texture that I very much enjoyed. The vibrant green color is not the most appealing feature but if you can get passed it this is actually a very nice body scrub.

Xen-Tan Luminous Gold Gel recently made an appearance on the blog but truth to be told I’ve been using it religiously for about two months now. This 125ml tube lasted me for about 7-8 full body applications, which is about average for this size. I absolutely love how natural the color looks on my skin and that it wears off in a very settle type of way. Yes, I already repurchase this product.

Veet Wax Strips are probably the one brand of wax strips that really works and deliver salon quality results at home. Religiously every two months I repurchase of those maxi pack boxes. The quality is great, does not irritate my skin even on sensitive arias and this strips never leave any sickly residue after use. Quick application tip is to heat each strip with hair dryer for about 5 seconds and then proceed to waxing.

Hair

This two products are my all-time hair staples that I cannot go without. Davines Well-Being Conditioner does amazing job smoothing dry ends and hydrating bristle and color treated hair. I found this product years ago and made a repurchase probably about four times now. It is great to take with you on sun holiday or just use it as every day conditioner. My next bottle is already on my way.

Hair - Davines Well Being Conditioner Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray review

When it comes to hair volume nothing beats Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray. It just works so well for my fine and flat hair. I’ll admit that I cheated a few times trying to find another equally as good alternative bit failed and keep on coming back for it. This 250ml bottle lasted me for about one year now, which is quite good value for money. Just a quick application tip – do not over spray your hair roots, just 5-6 sprits are more than enough. Another continuous repurchase.

Other beauty bits

Diptyque Infused Facial Water is a luxury face toner that is nice but totally unnecessary. After using up the whole bottle I did not see any positive or negative results on my skin. This product smells nice and did not irritate my sensitive skin but all that was not enough to convince me to make a repurchase.

Diptyque Infused Facial Water Artdeco Eye Shadow Base review

I receive sample of Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm with purchase. The consistency is rich without being heavy or oily and it is quickly absorbed by the skin. I used thins eye cream religiously morning and evening for over two months now and can really see improvement on my dark under eye circles. I have to warn you that you really have to be patient and use this product ever day to see results. My under eye circles appear less dark and under eye surface seems much smoother and hydrated. Personally I love this product and can tell that it really works for me so I will repurchase. If you are looking for new eye cream I suggest to look for the type of texture that works best for you and then request a few samples before making a purchase.

Artdeco Eye Shadow Base is a great product that come in dysfunctional packaging. This product comes in generous 5ml size and very reasonable price but it dries out after about a month. The consistency is almost gel like and it has slight light beige tint to it. Also there are same small glittery particles blended in that are completely undetectable on the eye lids. If Artdeco change the packaging I will probably purchase this product again but until then I will keep my distance.

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is a great calming night spray that has strong lavender scent to it. If you have trouble relaxing in bed or falling asleep this spray can help you settle and feel more relaxed. It will most probably not cure your insomnia but can certainly make you feel a bit better.
