Beauty trash: spring clean edition

Beauty trash: spring clean edition

This month’s beauty trash covers products from all categories – body, skin, make up, nails. I will try to bundle them in categories but do expect few bits under “other”.

Skincare
I finally managed to empty my beloved La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellair Solution. If you have a sensitive eyes but you cannot give up long lasting/waterproof eyeliner this is your guy. You can really get inside your eyeball without fear of irritation or discomfort. This is a much preferred product I used religiously since I started using makeup. A definite repurchase.

La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellair Solution Omorovicza Rejuvinating Night Cream review

Simple Kind to Skin Vital Vitamin Foaming Cleanser was one of those products that I force myself using despite the fact I did not like it very much. It does the job of cleansing your skin but also it feels very drying at times. Having a bit of mixed feelings about it so I will probably move on to something more suiting.
Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Foam cleanser/purifying mask is a great 2 in 1 product. I used this as my evening cleanser of choice simply because is kind of powerful and does a great job of deeply cleaning your skin and removing excess oil. Especially after a long day wearing makeup this is the perfect second cleanse product. It has a creamy consistency that glides on the skin. This product is lightly scented and comes with a nice fresh smell. After use skin feels clean and nourished. On days when my skin is feeling dry I would avoid using this cleanser. It could leave skin feeling tight and quickly clean at times. If you have normal to combination skin this is a great product for you. Another future repurchase.
Omorovicza Rejuvinating Night Cream has been featured one too many times on my blog. Its excellent product that clearly I’m obsessed with at the minute.
Biotherm After Sun Oligo-thermal sparkle cream is a holiday staple for me. It feels cooling on the skin and adds a bit of sparkle what more can you ask for.
Rodial Stemcell Super-food Hand cream is a great quality hand cream. It has a light rose smell and leaves your hands feeling super soft. The price tag is something to consider here, otherwise another great recommendation.

Hair care
This month it’s been a bit of a struggle with men shampoos. LOreal Elvive Anti-Dandriff shampoo does a great job as every day shampoo. As we all know washing your hair daily results is super oily scalp, which is quite hard to overcome. In the search of some sort of scalp treatment I stumble across Neutrogena T/Gel shampoo for greasy hair. It all looked quite promising when half way thought the bottle Alpha male’s scalp tuned pure red, flaky and itchy all at the same time. The results were polar opposite of what this anti dandruff shampoo claimed to deliver. At that stage this shampoo found its rightful place – in the bin.

Lee Stafford Dry Shampoo review product empties

Lee Stafford Dry Shampoo Original has a catchy packaging and ok quality. It does leave a bit of a white cast when you spray it on your roots but at the same time it absorbs oils well and gives hair a bit of volume. The smell is something to consider since it might not be everybody’s cup of tea. It was good to try but there are bigger fish to fry.

Oral care
Hello mouthwash, Mojito flavor was unexpectedly but predictably unpleasant. In retrospect I really don’t know what I was thinking. For a few weeks we had a Mojito flavor breath every morning and evening. Luckily the scent was not that strong to be accused of drinking on the job. Flavor issue aside, dental properties are not great either..

3D Crest White Glamorous White whitestrips review

3D Crest White Glamorous White whitestrips is a teeth whitening system including 14 treatments. This is a great place to start if you have no experience with at home whitening treatments. It is easy to use and does deliver settle but long lasting results. After 14 days my teeth got about three shades lighter, which was made settle but still visible difference. I did not experience any discomfort or side effects, like the one described on the box but keep in mind that everybody reacts to it differently. Overall I’m quite pleased with the results although I wish the final shade was a bit lighter. If you are worry about the end results, don’t since it will take much more whitening treatments and time before your teeth turn florescent white.

Other
Beauty Formulas Nail Dry spray is a quick way to help your nails dry quicker. It does help nail polish to harder quickly but you still have to give it some time before it is completely dry. I like this product because I feel like it helps speed the mani/pedi process.

Nourish Golden Glow Illuminating face shimmer review

Nourish Golden Glow Illuminating face shimmer is a good product I still consider repurchasing. Essentially this is a golden base liquid highlighter that gives the skin dewy radiant look. I normally mix small amount of this product with my foundation. Little goes a long way since the gold shimmer can translate quite strong on the skin. The only fault of this product is the smell. It is strong and not particularly pleasant. I was still able to use this product for a while but because of the smell I tend to gravitate towards other alternatives. To date I’m still a bit undecided.

Vita Liberata tanning mitt has finally gave up on me. Must say that there is slight difference between low and high end tanning mitts. They are all made from the same material (which does not affect application) but when it comes to durability this mitt wins the race by a mile. It lasted for about two months of intensive use. Tan washes off quite well and it does not tend to shrink or rip as easily.
