it’s again that time of the month when I show you my beauty trash bin. When it comes to empties, it doesn’t bother me that this month wasn’t the greatest because I can tell that June will be better.
Let’s start with the hair products.
I’m not really impressed with Matrix Biolage Hydrasource shampoo (2x) and conditioner (2x). The shampoo is ok (but only ok) while the conditioner did nothing for my hair. I’ve cut my hair recently, but my ends are still dry; however, the conditioner did nothing to help. It was as if I didn’t put anything on. I won’t be repurchasing it.
Schauma shampoo is nothing special, too.
I am a bit more satisfied with Redken Diamond Oil shampoo. I’m sad that I don’t have more samples, because these two weren’t enough for me to see how it performs, but the shampoo has a potential. once I’m done with Kerastase, I might repurchase full size.
However, I absolutely love Redken Diamond Oil conditioner. It is amazing – super creamy and moisturizing for my hair. My ends look much smoother and shinier whenever I use this. You can really feel that it moisturizes the hair. This is a definite repurchase.
I’ve decided to start a new skin-care regime this June to properly test Caudalie Polyphenol range, but before starting it, I wanted to use up some samples.
I don’t think I’ll repurchase Bioderma Sebium Serum. It has a lightweight formula, with some acids added, but I didn’t feel like it actually does something for my skin
Sisley Floral Toning Lotion is great and I dread the day when I’m out of these mini bottles – at the moment I’m not willing to shell out $100+ on a full size.
Caudalie Vinosource Sorbet is a lightweight moisturizer. I think it would be best suited for oily to combination skin as I don’t think it does a lot for dehydrated parts of my skin. However, I’ll hold my judgment for a while and give more thorough review after using up another mini sample.
Caudalie Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water is Caudalie’s take on micellar waters. I don’t think it is a bad product, but I certainly had better. It removes light, non-waterproof makeup, but I would not trust it to remove heavy make-up. I don’t think I’ll repurchase it; I still prefer Bioderma.
Yves Rocher Jardins du Monde Tiare Flower is one of my favourite shower gels. I think that the fact that I’ve repurchased it twice tells enough. It is affordable, smells nice and mild for the skin.
Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir is not my favourite take on jasmine, but it is still a nice everday scent. However, I don’t think I’ll repurchase it.
Givenchy Absolutely Irresistible is an ok fragrance, but nothing worth repurchasing.
Ferre Ferre fragrance is another nice everyday scent which I don’t think I’ll repurchase it. I need to add that I’m very particular about the scents I wear and, with the exception of Lidl’s Suddenly Madame Glamour I prefer stronger scents – I like strong notes of tiare, jasmine, oud, vanilla and violet.
Caudalie Thé des Vignes shower gel is a nice, scented shower cream. It doesn’t later well and it is exceptionally mild for the skin so I think it might be well suited for those with sensitive skin (if you can handle the scent). I have repurchased another Caudalie shower gel and I might purchase this one again, too.
