March Empties

Neutrogena Sheer Zinc SPF 50
I didn't like this at all. It's way too thick and leaves a white cast. 

Organic Shop Pearl Rose Body Polish
This is another product I didn't like. It didn't smell like roses and was not scrubby at all.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF 50+
I love this sunscreen. I use the body version too, they're both great.

Hydrogel Mask Trio
I bought these on sale for $10, they're normally $30. There's no way I'd pay $30 for them. The only reason I bought them is because there's a sloth one and Chai though that it'd look like a sloth. It doesn't. It looks like a regular gel mask. I found all of these very irritating and could only use them for a few minutes before I had to remove them due to the burning sensation.

Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes 
This was a very generous sample which lasted me around three weeks. As with most eye creams I've used, this did not make a noticeable difference to my eye area, however it did hydrate well, which is really all I expect from an eye cream.

John Plunkett Collagen Eye Lift
As with the eye cream above, this did nothing other than hydrate. 

Glow Lab Cream Cleanser
I really enjoyed using this cleanser. It's gentle, doesn't irritate my eyes and easily removes my makeup. I'll happily repurchase it.

Palmer's Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm
Whilst I enjoyed using this, I won't purchase it again for one reason. It leaves a greasy film on my eyes that I just can't get off. I want a cleanser that I can use all over my face, not one that I can't use on my eyes. 
Other than that, it's a great, budget priced cleansing balm. 

Nivea Mix Me Body Cream
I'm slowly working my way through these moisturisers. All of the scents are lovely and they provide great hydration to my dry legs. 

Kora Organics Rose Face Mist
Oh how I love my rose face mist. It's a gorgeous product, the spray bottle dispenses the perfect amount, it smells beautiful and makes my skin feel super soft. Once I've gotten through my ridiculously large face mist stash I'll repurchase. 

Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream
After going through several travel sized tubes of this, I really just need to buy it. It's super hydrating so perfect for the cool winter months that we have coming up soon. My dry skin loves it. The only downfall is that I need to give it about five minutes to absorb before putting my makeup on.

Palmers Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mask
I only bought this to get free shipping from Chemist Warehouse but I'm really glad I did. It's one of the better sheet masks that I've used. It hydrates, doesn't irritate and leaves my skin feeling soft and happy. 

The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane Shower Gel
Why didn't I stock up on these when they were on sale? I will next time. 
Being a morning shower person, I love how refreshing this shower gel smells, it helps to wake me up in the morning. 

Soap and Glory Rushour Dry Shampoo
If you love the scent of Soap and Glory products you'll love Rushour. It makes my hair smell so good and the scent lasts all day. This is a definite repurchase.

Concordia Exfoliating Face Scrub
I have a few exfoliants that are in constant rotation, this is one of them. It's gently exfoliating without being harsh or irritating my skin. 

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask
Oh how I love overnight masks. They're great for lazy people like me who can't be bothered/don't have the time to lay down with a sheet mask on. 
This one is particularly nice, as the name suggests it's super hydrating. I'm very tempted to buy it, especially considering there's a Clinique GWP on right now. 

The Ordinary Buffet
I need to lower my expectations of products. I always expect them to be amazing then am disappointed when they aren't. Realistically, most products won't be amazing.
I found Buffet to be hydrating and that's it. I'd buy it again, it's cheap and does the job, but it doesn't perform miracles.
