The February junk

Trevor Sorbie Curls and Waves conditioner
There was absolutely nothing remarkable about this conditioner. I felt like I needed to use a lot of it for it to feel moisturising. I have very curly hair that is prone to frizz but this didn’t actually make my curl more defined, softer or manageable. This definitely won’t be chucked in the basket again.

Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Moisture night cream
This was nice and really hydrating. I’m still on the hunt for that perfect cream, so until then, I’ll be testing the waters.

Yardley Oatmeal Pressed Powder (Translucent)
This lasted forever and a day. I’ve gone through a few of these but I think it’s time to try something else because this has the tendency to look really powdery and it doesn’t stop shine anyway. Onwards!

The Body Shop Vanilla Brulee shower gel
Finished the first of two that I picked up during the Christmas period. Vanilla will always be my go-to. This was a bit more cloying than the vanilla flavour that The Body Shop promoted two years ago. I’m not a huge fan of this amplified sweetness, but it’s still nice in small doses.

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream for Combination to Oily Skin (Light)
What a freaking name. Who would have known? Man, was this the gift that kept on giving. I was so ready to just throw this stuff away 3 months before it finished, but nope, every time I squeezed, it would eject some air and then WHAM…more. This worked way better than the original version (which just turned me into an oil slick) but was way too yellow for my skin tone. Sometimes the yellow was to my benefit – cancelled out the red a bit, but sometimes it was not good at all.

Would I repurchase? Nah, probably not. It was a great stepping stone into makeup and “foundation” type stuff, though.

And that is it! I think February was a pretty successful month! I finished a powder and a BB cream! Amazeballs.

By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."
