The January bin

Lush Rose Jam shower gel
I got this during the Christmas boom last year. I really wanted to try Hot Toddy but my nearest Lush never seemed to stock it and only the ginormous bottle was available on the website. Oh well. Maybe next year.

I liked how this foamed up and filled the shower with the smell of awesome. I did notice, however, that after like 10 showers with this stuff, I started getting sick of the scent. I ended up putting this stuff on hold and using something in between.

The Body Shop Chamomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter
This was nice. It worked well but I didn’t think it lasted as long as the Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm, and I still missed the cleansing oil version of this stuff, so I didn’t repurchase. I now have a brand new bottle of The Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Oil.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser
When I started using this primer, I hated it. Then, after using it solidly for a month, I realised my skin was in such good condition. I persevered and finally finished it off. I didn’t repurchase this, but I did buy another The Body Shop tea tree product because I like how it reacted with my skin! I’m currently using the Smashbox Oil-Free Light primer

Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser
Holy grail. I felt like a change, though, so I’m now using The Body Shop Tea Tree Cool and Creamy Wash (which I’m loving)

Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair with Liquid Keratin Ultimate Repair – Repair and Gloss Treatment for Very Damaged/Dry Hair
Phew. Long name. I was not blown away by this stuff. I can’t even remember if it was a shampoo or conditioner. It just sucked. Not buying this again.

Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara – mini
One word – transfer. A few hours of wearing this mascara, I felt and looked like a panda. Sadly I have a full size version waiting for me. I blame that on my mom. She got it as a freebie. Ugh.

"We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."
