Products to Buy Again
Silvikrin Classic Hairspray is just a no-brainer for me and I’ve used it for quite a while. It keeps my hair in place, it’s not sticky and the smell isn’t overpowering. What’s not to like? You can get it at Boots for £3.14 for 400ml, but they’re running a 2 for £5 offer on Silvikrin at the moment so a good time to stock up.
When I first bought the Avene Eau Thermale Extremely Gentle Cleanser Lotion, I liked it for a bit, then I decided I didn’t like it, and now I love it again. Phew! The rollercoaster ride of the Brooke World of Beauty, eh? It’s ideal for hypersensitive and irritable skin, and it feels lovely on the face and makes everything a lot smoother, so I will definitely be restocking at some point. I think the period I went off it was the time when my skin was just dreadful and I needed other products to kick my spots into touch – but for when your skin is okay this product is great! You can get it for £10.50 for 200ml at Boots.
The Aromatherapy Associates Support Equilibrium Bath & Shower Oil turned up in a sample package I bought, and the smell is utterly GORGEOUS. Rich and floral and sophisticated, and just wonderful to add to your bath. The main ingredients are rose, geranium and frankincense which are all fabulous. It’s £45 for 55ml, so a definite treat for when you’re feeling very flush indeed!
Products I Won’t Buy Again
The Elizabeth Arden Skin Renewal Booster was another sample product and I really don’t like it. It just feels too watery and the smell is like old washing up water. It didn’t do anything for my face either, so I’m giving it a miss. It’s £45 for 30ml at Boots, but they’re doing a 3-for-2 offer on selected Elizabeth Arden at the moment, so you might want to give it a go. Everyone else seems to like it, but not me.
I’ve finally finished up my supply of La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Masques and I’ve not got anything much from them, so won’t be buying these. Boots are selling the full-sized product for £12 for 50ml, which is down from the usual £16 as there’s a 25% offer on La Roche-Posay products. You might like it better than I did!
