Empties October 2017

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

If it hadn’t been for #OctoberMaskChallenge on Instagram I would not have had very many empties at all this month. I knew it had to slow down at some point. I mean how many products can 1 woman go through in a month’s time? Read on to see what I used up and if I liked it.


20171025_161018.jpgKonjac Sponges –  Perfect for pampering all skin types, this natural cleansing sponge is made from 100% Konjac Root fibers. Asian Konjac Root has been used for centuries to gently exfoliate and detoxify skin while naturally balancing skin’s PH levels. When wet the sponges soften for gentle cleansing to deliver smooth, soft, brighter looking skin. I discovered these about the time I started tretinoin. They have since become a key part of my skincare routine. They are featured in A.M. Skincare Routine – FallBeauty and Skin Care Products for…

5 Faves October 2017

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

It should be feeling like fall by now in Virginia but it is not! We have been having hot, humid days that feel more like August. This month’s faves are still fall themed even if it does feel like summer in the south.

Bath & Body Works Purrfect Pumpkin Shower Spell – Contains Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Aloe. Pumpkin Fragrance. Keynotes of Carved Pumpkin, Spooky Cinnamon, Black Ginger, Moonlight Vanilla, and Spiked Amber. I purchased the shower gel and body cream as part of Bath and Body Works Semi-Annual Sale Haul. The packaging is just too cute! And it smells amazing.

Bath & Body Works Purrfect Pumpkin 24-Hour Moisture Scream – Ultra Shea Body Cream provides 24 Hours of continuous nourishing moisture. Enriched with skin soothing Aloe Butter and pampering Cocoa Butter. I almost always buy my shower gels and body creams in pairs so I can layer the…

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! I forgot to do a haul post last month, so today I’m showing you what I bought in September and October. 🙂

I bought a set of 5 SpaScriptions face masks – the set was £4.99. I also bought a set of 5 panda face masks – this set was £4.99 as well. TK Maxx

I bought a Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Mask (£4), a large 1kg Kallos Multivitamin hair mask (£7.99), and a Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Creamy Cleanser (£4). TK Maxx

I picked up 3 Superdrug items – a Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak (£1.47), a Glycolic Tonic (=toner) and another Glycolic Overnight Peel to replace the one I finished. The last 2 products were £5.99 each, but there was a buy 1 get 1 free offer, so I paid £5.99 in total for the 2 Naturally Radiant products.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Goji Berry Body Smoothie

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Goji Berry Body Smoothie which I picked up for £1 (Poundworld). This product claims to have a unique and fluffy texture that absorbs quickly and is 100% loveable! Read on if you’d like to know if this product is any good. 🙂

I agree that this moisturiser has a unique texture. It really is fluffy and bouncy – and it’s awesome fun! In addition, this moisturiser absorbs in no time, so it’s great when you’re in a hurry (weekday mornings…). Another thing I’d like to mention is that this moisturiser doesn’t feel sticky at all – not even for a second. Because of this I think it would be perfect for the warmer seasons.

I don’t know what goji berries smell like, but this moisturiser has a strong peach fragrance. So if you love peaches, you need to try this product asap!

#OrgaPlusRich Yet Light-Weight Mask Extra

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

I received a box of the Rich Yet Light-Weight Mask Extra from #08l and #naturennature free to try and share my honest opinion. I use a mask at least 3 times each week so I have used so many different masks. I have to say this is one if the best I have ever tried.


The serum is a thicker milky white serum. It has a light, mild scent that I liked. The mask is 100% Cotton and was soft and saturated with serum. There was also a fair amount of serum left over. I used that on my neck and chest and on my face after I removed the mask.

This mask is a Hybrid Oil Serum that contains several oils and hyaluronic acid. It was a good-sized mask and fit my face well. The eyes, nose and mouth holes lined up well on my face. There was enough…

100% Awesome – Alberto Balsam Volume Boost Shampoo & Conditioner

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Alberto Balsam’s Volume Boost Shampoo & Conditioner with Jericho Rose & Pink Grapefruit. I bought these 2 products quite some time ago when they were on special (£1 each), and I’ve finally managed to try them.

These products are aimed at people with fine or flat hair, and they promise fullness and a healthy look. And guess what, these 2 products are simply awesome! Read on, I’ll tell you more! 🙂
The shampoo feels amazing on my head. It feels clarifying, but it’s  also sensationally soft! The formula is pretty much perfect! The conditioner is fantastic too. It feels very conditioning, and it detangles my hair with ease. It actually feels like a “soft & smooth” conditioner. Brilliant!

I’m also happy that these 2 products make my hair appear fuller. And yes, at the same time my hair feels soft and smooth. Alberto…

Super Facialist By Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! I’ve got another face mask review for you today. 🙂

It’s about the Super Facialist By Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask that I picked up a little while ago.

I think it’s quite obvious what the mask promises to do. However, I’ll summarise things anyway. So… this mask contains salicylic acid and Dead Sea mud – 2 ingredients known for their oil-absorbing and skin-purifying properties.

In addition, this mask contains acacia honey and vitamins A, D and E which rebalance the skin.

All in all, this mask promises clearer and fresher looking skin. This sounds great!

Does it work? Yes! This mask is really powerful! When I used the mask for the first time, I could tell that it would be awesome. The mask felt cool and slightly tingly – and it was pleasant. It wasn’t “too much” and it didn’t feel scary…
