In the first month of the year, a lot of stuff (sadly) went out the door again. I had a lot of stuff that was already almost done, and then you have one of those time where you seem to run out of everything. That was my januari. A lot of very nice products, but just one I am really, sorely going to miss. Read and enjoy!
In the shower: Treacle Moon, Rituals en Love Beauty & Planet
A lot of products went empty in the shower this month. My favourite Rituals scrub is gone. I loved the scent of it (as always with Rituals products) and it made my skin so soft and clean! Rituals mixes a little bit of oil into their scrubs, which leaves your skin smooth and hydrated and without need for a separate body lotion after. I love it!
That big Treacle Moon bottle is also empty. Lasts for a long time, that huge bottle! I really love the scent of this: fresh and fruity! I did have a little trouble with the cap. The lid is pressed on very tightly, which makes it a bit of a hassle to open when you are in the shower. Great for when you are traveling though!
The last empty is a shampoo from Love Beauty & Planet. I have used this one before and I absolutely love it. The coconut smell is great, if foams like nothing else and leaves my hair clean and fresh. I am going to be using this for a while!
On my face: eye cream and essence
The Sea Buckthorn Eye Cream by Ilse Jacobsen was my first eye cream – and I loved it! I’ll admit, it is a bit of extra work to gently pat a separate cream around your eyes, but I loved the results it gave me. And it made me want to add an eye cream to my routine permanently – which is great, because I received another one in the Christmas Bluxbox.
The essence by Erno Laszlo is a different story. To be honest, I am not really sure what to do with an essence. I used this one after cleansing and before moisturising. Sometimes in combination with a toner, and sometimes not. It does feel nice and fresh, but I am really not sure it actually adds anything to my skincare routine.
Clay Mask by Caudalie
Noooooo not my Caudalie clay mask! This one was in my Limited Edition Caudalie Box from Look Fantastic – and it really was fantastic. This mask was my secret weapon: it made my skin miraculously clean, battled outbreaks and made everything super soft and smooth. I am so sad it’s empty! I did buy something else – the clay mask from Sand & Sky that I am currently testing, but this one is a keeper for sure. Read my complete review here!
Cleansing: cleanser, micellair water and toner
Wow, my toner is gone. This bottle from The Body Shop lasted forever! Actually, I am a little sad to see it go. I have used it for so long, and I still like it a lot. But by now I have so many other things to try and test that I am going to leave this one for a bit.
I loved the Nivea makeup remover. Which is a good thing, because I found another one in the goodiebag I bought from Bluxbox a while ago! It feels nice and fresh on the skin and removes makeup well – which is just about all I want from a makeup remover. My complete review is over here.
Last but not least, I used a small sample of this cleanser by Laroche, which came as a bonus with my last order at Look Fantastic. It was nice to try for a bit, but other than the neutral smell I can’t really say much about it after just a few tries.
Well, that was all for this month! Actually it was not so bad, now that I look back on it. I am just really sad about the Caudalie mask being gone. That one is coming back for sure!
