I hope you're all having a great summer and lots of fun!
Here it's really hot, so we're thinking of waiting until the end of August to go on a vacation with our little one!
I haven't been buying that many beauty products or makeup, but have been just really concentrating on using up what I have.
I managed to accumulate quite a bit of empties, so this month too, I'll share with you 5 products I've used up and quickly give you my honest reviews.
As you can see, I have some hair care products and some personal hygiene / body care products!
As you guys already know, I like to experiment with different hair care products and I can tell you that I particularly liked these two hair shampoos.
The first one is by Tigi Bed Head and it's called "Colour Goddess." As the name suggests, it's meant for colour treated hair. It has a super lovely scent of caramel/ coconut and it's infused with natural oils.
It's very mild on your hair and suitable for dry hair and color/ damaged hair. If your hair is very greasy, it won't do much!
I recommend it mostly because of its yummy scent and because it'll safeguard your colour (I imagine this would be particularly indicated for red heads, as red colour tends to fade away pretty quickly!)
Next up, is a hair shampoo by Testanera (or Schwarzkopf, basically in Italy it goes by "Testanera"). I really love Schwarzkopf hair care products! I believe they're great quality, for a drugstore price.
This one is indicated for dry and damaged hair and it really does leave your hair silky soft and more manageable.
Next, I have a few skin and body care products and one oral hygiene product: Listerine mouthwash. I heard great reviews about this particular one, the "Advanced White," but to be honest with you, I didn't like it! I think it's just too strong and not that pleasant :-( I much prefer other mouthwashes, such as Elmex, Paradontax, Curasept etc. I think that in the future I'll just stick to those!
Rose water is my old favorite! I use it instead of a face tonic, after washing my face and before applying day/ night time moisturizer. Also, in these hot summer days, I like to spay it on my face occasionally. It acts as an instant refreshment and it soothes and hydrates skin, making it look fresh and youthful.
Almond oil is another beauty product that I always use, I used it when I was pregnant as an awesome anti stretch mark natural product and now even to take care of my baby's delicate skin. We definitely love almond oil!
Ok, those were my monthly empties!
Let me know what products have you used up this month and is there something you'll be repurchasing and something you'll stay away from in the future?
