The March bin

I think this was a pretty good month when it comes to finishing things. It feels pretty good every time I chuck a plastic container away. Victorious! So what ended up at the bottom of the bin?

Soap & Glory Foam Call body wash
I put in a Boots order last year and this was one of the items in my wonderful haul. I actually meant to order Rich and Foamous, but this was a nice change. It was quite fresh, fruity and zingy – perfect for after gym, morning showers, or omg-it’s-so-damn-hot-but-need-to-wash-the-sweat-off showers.

Oil of Morocco Hair Mask sachet
My hair. It’s the bane of my existence. I dream of having straight, moisturised, perfect locks…but I know that doesn’t actually exist. Anyway, this was nice. There was A LOT of product in this sachet. I have mid-length hair and I could have done my hair twice with this stuff. I didn’t feel any long term changes but maybe that requires me to use it more than twice? I actually finished two sachets.

Clarins Bright Plus HP Brightening Repairing Night Cream
I actually really liked this. This wasn’t the full size version as far as I know – it came as a gift with purchase sort of perk when my mom repurchased her Clarins moisturiser. She usually passes on all the deluxe samples to me (no complaining here). It was pleasant – not something I’d buy myself, but yeah, smelt nice, felt nice…

Clinique Body Sparkle Exfoliator
Oh my god. I have been lusting after this stuff for forever and a day. I was going to buy it from the UK or US – that’s how much I wanted it. I thought it was just one of those products that don’t come to South Africa, but then one day I was browsing the Clinique website for something and saw a banner on their front page with this baby plastered all over it. My eyes turned into little twinkling hearts and I knew it was time. I ended up buying this in store at Edgars and am considering picking up another now that it’s finished… despite it’s hefty price tag… Maybe I’ll add it to my birthday wishlist…

Johnson’s Face Care Daily Essentials Oil Balancing Facial Cleansing Wipes
I normally remove my makeup with a cleansing oil/balm (at the moment, The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil) but this gets a little tricky on gym days. So, on those days I fall back on face wipes. I like to remove my makeup before I sweat up a storm and these work pretty well. When I get home, though, I do give my face a proper wash.

Lush Rub Rub Rub (330g)
This was a really amazing Christmas gift from my aunt… And I loved it. It’s supposed to be a bit of an exfoliator as it has sea salt in there, but it’s not very scrubby. What it does have going for it is the smell. It smells like a lime cocktail in the sunshine, and leaves my body feeling nice and clean and soft. I’d actually consider buying this for myself one day when I’m feeling flush.

Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair with Liquid Keratin – Ultimate Repair Shampoo (very damaged/dry hair)
Ugh. Another one of those products that I loved and now hate. The first bottle was magic. This… not even close. I was literally begging it to end. But it wouldn’t. Because I bought a fuck off big bottle. Ugh. Never again. I’m using the Loreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil range at the moment, which, when all three products are used in conjunction (shampoo, conditioner and mask) makes my hair feel amaze balls.

Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner
WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?! Again, I loved this once upon a time. Now I’m just like “eh…”
