It seems like forever that I've been waiting to get this post up! The majority of the above were polished off through Christmas break. I arrived home from Uni to a host of half full lotions and potions so made it my mission to get through some of them.
The Garnier Simply Essentials Make Up Remover has become my go to. There is nothing super special about it, just does the job and does it well. I usually use a couple of oval face pads to make sure I get every last bit of product of my skin before cleansing.
I always forget how much I love the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation (review!). It had been neglected at home but it brings such a flawless, dewy finish. It's the perfect level of coverage for me, light to medium but easily buildable. It comes in just under £30, which to me is completely justifiable.
Johnson's Daily Essentials Face Cream is probably my ultimate favourite moisturiser. It's a really thick but creamy lotion, sinks in immediately and you can feel the benefits within the first couple of days. It's no frills but pretty amazing with what it delivers. This is my fail safe and I'd highly recommend.
Bordering on a cult beauty product, the Make Up Forever Smoky Lash Mascara was bought purely from the multitude of rave reviews. I grew to love it as the brush is the perfect size and shape (thin, straight, with natural bristles) and the formula makes for amazing length and blacker than black lashes.
Body butters are a thing of wonder to me. The Treacle Moon Her Mango Thoughts Body Butter* is no different. Slick on a small amount and you are left feeling nourished and smelling amazing. This scent has an element of nostalgia to it, but I can't place what it is.
Another empty Batiste Dry Shampoo* - I go through these faster than I'd like. For more details read my Batiste Graffiti review, but I'm sure you know about this brand by now.
Mixed in with a pretty Lush bath bomb, the Space NK Midnight Milk Soak* leaves such a silky quality to the water. There is a fresh but musky scent that comes along with it and it takes years to get through - definitely more of a shower person. This bottle dates back to the summer of 2011.
Last but 100% not least is the Phyto PhytoVolume Actif. Spritz this onto your damp roots and blow dry for ultimate volume. This will definitely be featured in my collection again. Full rave in the review here!
Now back to Uni with a considerable edit and restocked collection of products to begin working through!
