Finished in June – basically, the scrub edition

Just a warning… 90% of these empties are scrubs. Yeah, I don’t know. Sometimes this shit just happens??

Freeman Guava Body Salt Scrub
Ehhh… This won’t be a repurchase. I loved the smell of it but it was weird. The scrubby particles (very scrubby – which I like) were suspended in gel (or whatever it was) and due to the consistency of the gel (very jelly-ish), it made this very hard to spread evenly and efficiently on wet skin. Maybe if my skin was dry it would work, but it took a lot of work to try break the gel down and actually get the scrubby bits to reach the skin. When it did, yay! But most of the time, it just didn’t happen. It would kinda bead up and just slide down my legs or arms or something. There was also far too few salt bits to gel. Ratio way off! Sorry, Freeman’s!

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Seed Body Scrub
Liked the scent! Liked how moisturising it felt. Wished there were more seeds in there to make it super scrubby. I like to feel it scrub, not just a hint of scrub, which is why I try avoid gel scrubs. This wasn’t a gel, btw. But anyway, I liked this enough. This was like a 5 or 6 out of 10… Probably a 6.

Woolworths Love Your Skin Extreme Moisture 2 in 1 Moisturising Butter Scrub
HEAVEN IN A TUBE. I lie. Heaven is the Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub. This was pretty freaking amazing though. Not zomg scrubby, but it smelt like all the good things in life, felt super moisturising and I’d buy this again in a heartbeat. It even made me want to try the shower gel, but then I saw the gel was like a weird metallic colour… And that generally makes me think of bubble bath. Something I don’t like, clearly.

NYX Doll Eye Mascara Waterproof
I really liked this! My friend Holly gave this to me. I see we can actually get this now. It made my lashes look awesome and when it says waterproof, oh my lord, it means it. MEANS IT. I have cried wearing this stuff. And not just like *tear rolling down cheek*… I’m talking about huge ugly cry, snotting everywhere and not being able to breathe kinda cry. And it didn’t streak or make me look like a panda. I might actually repurchase this, or at least another NYX mascara some time.

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Shower Gel
Another one of those off products. Liked the scent, obviously, but it just SUCKED at foaming or making me feel clean. I generally like Body Shop stuff, but this just didn’t work for me.

And that is it! Hopefully July will be a lot less scrub-heavy? Wait…who am I kidding?
