Ready for recycling #1 - Part 2

So I'm back with the second part of my empties post; this time focusing on skincare and body products.

Ready for recycling #1 - Part 2
Ready for recycling #1 - Part 2

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+) £15.50 If you've followed my blog for a while then you may be aware that I'm a big fan of La Roche-Posay's Effaclar Duo (+). I've been on the contraceptive pill for many years to control the acne I used to get on my chin (and also on my back) and although I don't consistently suffer any more I do experience outbreaks due to stress and hormones and this is amazing at dealing with them and the resulting scaring. The only reason I haven't replaced this yet is because I'm currently using up a similar product from Avene that I trialled.
Repurchase? Yes definitely.

Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid £14.99 This is actually far from empty but is a couple of years old now and as sun protection deteriorates over time I'm aware it is possibly no longer offering the protection it should any more. So I thought it was time to get rid. I have to admit I do only wear sun protection on my face during the summer as I find it an annoying extra step in my skincare/makeup routine, otherwise I'd have probably used this up. As the weather improves I will be looking to purchase a new facial sun protection, either this one or another one, so if you have any recommendations that are easily absorbed/non-sticky etc please let me know.
Repurchase? Possibly.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair eye* £40 full size (post) This is the bronze tub where you can't really see what it is. This was part of a GWP (Gift With Purchase) I received as a sample to review containing sample sizes of several Estee Lauder products. This is a lovely product that applies really smoothly on the eye area and leaves skin feeling gorgeous. A product I would definitely buy if I was considerably richer!
Repurchase? No.

Embryolisse Radiant eye cream* £20.50 (post) A product I have only recently posted about so I won't say much here as you can check my post if you wish. I enjoyed using this but as I mentioned I was shocked by how quickly you can get through this product.
Repurchase? No.

Ready for recycling #1 - Part 2

Pixi Glow Tonic To-Go Exfoliating toner pads £24 I was lucky enough to win a competition that Pixi ran on Instagram and this was one of several Pixi products I received as part of the prize. I'd previously received Glow Tonic to review and it's a product I love just like many others. Glow Tonic To-Go is a newer product that features a pot of 60 Glow Tonic soaked pads that are easier to transport around than a bottle of Glow Tonic and a pack of cotton pads. £24 does sound like quite a lot of money but it's only 40p per pad and even if you do use Glow Tonic twice a day I think you could cut a pad in half and use half in the morning half in the evening. I don't tend to use it every day as my skin is quite sensitive and daily can end up irritating it. But I use it every-other-day or so and I love it.
Repurchase? I'd probably repurchase a bottle of Glow Tonic as I don't travel that much any more. 

Ready for recycling #1 - Part 2

Garnier Minerals Invisible Anti-perspirant (post) Another product I've posted about reasonably recently. Anti-perspirant isn't particularly an exciting product but is very necessary and this is my current favourite. 
Repurchase? I already have and mum also popped one in my most recent 'care package' when I went home over Christmas!

Original Source Lime & Coconut milk Moisturising shower milk £2.30 but always on offer! I'm not particularly bothered what shower gel I use and tend to pick up whatever is on offer. But more recently I am swaying more towards shower creams and milks because of my dry skin. Original Source are known for their amazing scents, so when I spotted one of their newer shower milks on offer for I think £1 (as it is at the moment in Boots) I grabbed it to try. This gets me clean leaving my skin soft and smells like Pina Colada's, so it's a winner.
Repurchase? Yes, possibly even if it's not on offer!

Avéne Cleansing foam* £12.50 (post) When I was offered this to try I did have to think carefully before agreeing to accept it as a foaming cleansing previously pretty much destroyed my skin. But I trust Avene, their hydrating serum is my favourite, and I was assured it was suitable for sensitive skin. I didn't use it in the winter when the weather was harsh, because my skin doesn't need any help to become unmanageable dry, but when the weather is better it's great as a light morning cleanse or evening second cleanse. I've not had any problem with it.
Repurchase? Possibly. 

bareMinerals Mineralixirs facial cleansing oil £21 I'm trying to remember where this came from and I'm not entirely sure but I believe it was part of a prize from Debenhams, something to do with their beauty club awards and a picture I posted on Instagram. I sat on this for a while though until I'd used up other cleansing oils I already had on the go. I can't remember much about this now but I did enjoy using it, although I think it struggled sometimes with mascara and liquid liner. 
Repurchase? Probably not as there are others I like just as much/more for cheaper.

So that's it for my empties for a while. Although I have noticed I already have two, make that three products that will probably be used up by the time you read this post....

    1. I really don't like spending any more than that unless I'm maybe treating myself in Lush! x

  2. I love the Estée Lauder eye cream! I haven't re-purchased it for ages because of the price, but nothing else I've tried lives up to it :( xx
