November Empties: Skincare

Monday, November 26, 2012
Carrying on with my large collection of products that I have used up in the month of November, now it is on to skincare! 
Firstly, is the Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser which was a free sample I think (I have so many skincare samples it is unbelievable!). This moisturiser isn't really aimed at my skin type as this product is for normal to combination skin whereas my skin type is normal to dry and sensitive in areas. However this product worked really quite well, it has a almost gel like consistency which makes it really nice and smooth when applied. The moisturiser itself isn't as moisturising as I needed it to be so I had to use two thin layers of this product for my skin to be moisturised enough. Overall, a nice product that didn't irritate my skin but it just isn't moisturising enough for me - and it doesn't smell nice in my opinion - it has a very strong lemon candy/sweets scent which could be mistaken for cleaning fluid! 

The next couple of products I have used up are two toners from two gorgeous french brands. Firstly, the Caudalie Cleansing Water which I have been using as a toner and it works really well as a toner, in my opinion. Although the first time I used this product I did experience a small amount of irritation which I haven't experienced with any other Caudalie product before. Overall, a nice toner and it is scented but after the initial minor irritation there wasn't any afterwards. Another toner I have used up is my Decleor Aroma Cleanse Tonifying Lotion. Firstly, I have no idea why this product is described as a 'lotion' as it is not a lotion at all - it is a normal watery toner! The toner works well with my skin although it is heavily scented - it smells very floral and even though it is scented it didn't irritate my skin. Overall, a really nice toner but it is not worth the money in my opinion - my Lush Eau Roma Water works just as well and it is so much cheaper.

The last skincare product I have used up this month is the Vichy 3 in 1 Calming Cleansing Solution which is one of the best makeup removers I have ever used - it is just as good as my Bioderma! Quite a few makeup removers I have used have either made my skin really dry/tight or they have left a greasy film on my skin but this doesn't do either of those things - this makeup remover removes all of my makeup effortlessly and leaves it feeling like skin. Overall, a fantastic product that doesn't irritate my skin, make it greasy or make it dry/tight and it is great for eyes and face. Highly, highly recommended.
