Wow I can’t believe it’s Sunday night already! It’s been a busy weekend and I am glad to be rugged up at home in my comfy round-the-house clothes… In Adelaide it’s now winter so cue the hot chocolates and hoodies!
I actually have some empties for the month of April that are worth reporting on, which include my favourite face powder of all time and favourite face sheet masks of all time.
Behold, the empties!
Ok yes I don’t have just cosmetic or beauty products in here… Let’s mix it up a little!
From L to R…
Skinvitals H-Revive Cloth Facial Treatment Masks > You can pick up these beauties in packs of 3 at your local Priceline for approx. $11 AUD. I go for the H-Revive as it is nice and moisturising, but Skinvitals also have a Vitamin C, whitening, and range of other masks in their range. They are high quality, with plenty of serum in each mask pack. I’ve been buying these regularly for over a year now and have never been disappointed. Beautiful Rating 10/10: quality 5/5, value 5/5.
So you can get a better look at these, to be able to easily recognise them when shopping, here’s a close up pic:
Kinder Bueno > yummy chocolate which I ate whilst setting up the other items to photograph haha!
Prestige Skin Loving Minerals in Light > I’ve probably raved about this before but I find it never lets me down. I keep buying it again and again, over 2 years after first trying it. It doesn’t look cakey but keeps my skin shine free almost all day – if going from work to a night out somewhere I just do a light touch up on the t-zone and am ready to roll! You can vary the coverage depending on how much you apply (using a powder or kabuki brush) and actually also Priceline is the best place to find it, where they often have discount or bonus product deals on it (e.g. spend X and get a free Y). RRP $27.95 AUD. Beautiful rating 10/10: quality 5/5, value 5/5.
Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 > It’s a saga but well worth the read if you are into stories about alternate realities and parallel worlds. I’ve talked about this book before but have only just finished it, almost 5 months after receiving it! As it was such a long book I have had breaks from it here and there, but only because I’ve had a lot of other (work) books to read.
Garnier Minerals InvisiCalm deodorant > Really happy with this one and have repurchased. Very similar to another deodorant in their range which I have reviewed here. I often am able to get it at Coles supermarkets when it’s on sale for 1/2 price (therefore costing me ~ $2.50 AUD/can). Beautiful rating 9/10: quality 4/5 (I don’t believe it’d really last 48 hours!), value 5/5.
Yes to Carrots Soothing hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes > I usually go for Johnson & Johnson’s wipes but tried these when they were on sale for ~$5 AUD at my local Coles supermarket. They are worth the money and are refreshing with a lovely mild cucumber scent. You also get more in a pack (30). They leave your face feeling clean but without any residue, which the Johnson & Johnson’s ones do tend to leave a bit of. I will repurchase these! Beautiful rating 8/10: quality 5/5, value 3/5 (average as these are a bit on the pricey side for supermarket wipes!).
Which beauty or cosmetic products do you keep buying again and again?
