October Product Empties ’18

I’ve been in a decluttering mood recently. I think that the strangely warm weather this past month in London has really got me motivated to have a huge clear out before the cold really sets in, and all I would want to do is come home after work and wrap up in my cosy dressing gown.

This time round I seem to be very ‘cleanser heavy’, finishing 4 different cleansing products. I like to alternate between Garnier SkinActive Express 2in1 Eye Make-up Remover and a more premium version like Lancome Bi-Facil as a special treat. They are both very similar, with a non-oily formula and they are great at removing waterproof eye makeup. For the rest of face, I like using the La Roche-Posay Make-Up Remover Micellar Water Gel. For slightly heavier makeup days I will use the Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse to melt my makeup with the balm and then double cleanse with the cream.

Recently I have been battling with an increasing number of breakouts and I still haven’t worked out why. Anyway the one product that I have been using even more is Serozinc by La Roche-Posay. The zinc sulphate in the mist has really been helping to calm any redness and replace any moisture lost post breakout.

When I haven’t been trying to deal with spots, I’ve been attempting to solve my extremely dehydrated skin. For my lips I use a scrub from Lush every other day to remove any flakiness and L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream is the perfect handbag friendly product that prevents any dryness on the go.

Kérastase Specifique Anti Dandruff Solution Shampoo has really helped with my sensitive scalp, as well as treating my dandruff without feeling too stripping. I then add a few drops of Tresemmé Oleo Radiance Oil Elixir to my conditioner to leave my hair smooth and silky. I can also get the same effect with Kérastase Keratine Thermique Smoothing Taming Milk when it is applied to wet hair before blow drying.

After clearing out my mascara collection and using a different mascara every day for a week, I realised that I had actually used up two of them already. The L’Oreal Double Extension Waterproof Mascara gives length to my lashes however I don’t actually use the primer end, so half of the product is wasted on me. The No7 Lash Impact Waterproof Mascara is my preferred choice for it’s clump free formula giving separation and volume.
