I have no time to do favourites so I’ll just empty the box with empties again. I have quite few products to show and so… here we go!

Few eye products.

Essence Lash Base is a base for mascara. It is white and quite thick and covering. The base stuff is quite hard to get here, but I must say this one isn’t half bad. I remember having one better, but I cannot remember since it was quite a while ago. So for now I am sticking with this one. So if you don’t know how it works… You put it on like a mascara, look in the mirror and get fairly scared because your eyelashes are white and while is not dry yet you put on mascara.

Repurchase? Yes, and done. Until something better comes my way.

Catrice Glamour Doll Volume Mascara is one of best mascaras I’ve ever put on. I wrote about it here and I am obsessed with it.

Repurchase? A definite yes!

Essence Liquid Ink Eyeliner I’ve gone over so many bottles of this since I’ve started buying makeup that I should be a share holder at Essence. Just kidding. This summer I went for a waterproof version and I must admit I feel like it isn’t the same formula… Maybe it is just me but I felt thicker and harder to put on nicely. It has a great thin brush and even the least experienced ones can make a nice line with it. I know, I’ve been there ( still am to be honest :$).

Repurchase? Waterproof version probably not but the original YES!

Essence I love Style Liquid Eyeliner  I bought this one quite some time ago. If I recall correctly it was a special edition or something like that. Well since I love Liquid Ink so much I thought this one will be just as great. And oh, boy I could not be more wrong. It is really thick in consistency, it started to smell like alcohol after few months and a brush is a mess.

Repurchase? I am not crying that it’s not accessible anymore.

Essence You Rock Eyeshadow base is another one from trend collection and quite an old one for that matter. They have one other base on the shelves now, I love stage but it is different. This one has a light shimmer, it was nicely coloured so it made a nice white base and it really lasted whole day, no matter what happened.

Repurchase? I would.

Shower!

Lush Rose Jam is a thick, jam like shower gel with sweet rose scent and argan oil. I am a huge fan of Lush but this scent is not my cup of tea. This bottle is actually not this years but it was bought last year, and my friend K gave it to me since it made her skin itch. It does leave your skin hydrated but it is too smelly for me.

Repurchase: No.

The Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Polish is another last festive season product I finished. I always put them in a closed for a non-festive season, that is why I am finishing them up now. This smell is amazing. I have no idea why The Body Shop has decided to go with green apple this year but I hope the gingery-cinnamony smell will be back soon. It does its job great and it leaves you smelling all gingerman-ish?. Yum.

Repurchase: Yes, please bring it back next year.

Lush Sugar Scrub is also gingery but it is the messiest thing I’ve ever seen. I could only use it once normally, other times it was all gooey and annoying to use. It smells like fennel and ginger but I must admit I like both other scrubs in pots from Lush.

Repurchase: No.

Avon Violet Bubble Bath is a bubble bath with plenty of bubbles and violet smell, as the name suggests. It does have a bit plastic smell but it is not disturbing. It lasts for about 6 baths with mountains of bubbles.

Repurchase: Other scents.

Lush Drummers Drumming this was actually my boyfriend‘s pick. He loves the little jingles on it and I love it as well. It lasts a really long time, I still have some left so I’d guess it lasts for about six baths and it makes bubbles as well. Smells like strawberries, so many strawberries! Yum. A good value for it’s money for sure!

Repurchase: Might buy another one, yes.

Lush Karma Komba shampoo bar is not on the picture because I forgot to put the bag to my empties box. Whoops. So long story short, it is a shampoo bar, it lasts for more than three months with my middle lenght hair with three to five washes per week. It makes your hair smell like Karma anything and I am in love with that scent.

Repurchase: Maybe, but they have some new shampoo bars, so I need to try them out first.

Lush Atomic toothie tabs is a toothpaste that is in solid state. And it tastes amazing. I’ve tried quite few of them and most of them are quite gross. I need just half a tablet because it makes your mouth sooooo foamy and it has quite strong flavour. For you who wonder how it works… You take a tablet, chew it up and go in with wet toothbrush and then it is like any other tooth-cleaning you’ve done.

Repurchase: Maybe.

Essence 6 in 1 studio nails file another product I’ve used so many times. It gives your nails great shine.

Repurchase: Already did it. Like million times.

Santoro pink lemonade fraganced lip balm Eclectic Collection was a bookshop buy. And I don’t know what was I thinking. Well I do know, I loved the packaging. It was terrible as a lipbalm, all sticky and havily fraganced and drying for the lips but I used it as a “barrier” for henna on my hair when I was colouring them. It worked like a miracle.

Repurchase? No.

Kitchen!

Zisha Menthol Cocktail black tea is an awesome combination of black and mint tea to get you going in the morning.

Repurchase: Discontinued.

Lipton Raspberry white tea another discontinued tea which was pretty awesome. Mild and great flavoured one.

Repurchase: Discontinued.

Frosch dish soap with Aloe Vera is one of the best detergents I’ve tried. Ever. It is quite hand-friendly and it does its job just great.

Repurchase: Done.

So this is a long one, if you managed to read it all down here, nice job.

xoxo,

Tina
