Monthly Favourites and Empties – August 2016

I can’t believe that August is almost up. Where has the time gone?? It just seems like yesterday I was writing about my July favourites. Now here I am writing about the products I used most and empties for August.

Cetaphil Gentle Cleansercetaphil cleanser

This is our go to skin cleanser. We have a bottle in the shower and I carry one around in my gym bag.

I love that this product is so versatile and is used for body yet is gentle enough to be used on the face. I use it mainly as a body wash. My dry and dehydrated skin doesn’t feel parched and tight after cleansing with this product.

Would I Repurchase? Mr Lubz is always on the ball when it comes to stocking up on this cleanser and the corresponding moisturiser. We usually have a couple of bottles sitting in the cupboard ready for use.

I got Mr Lubz hooked onto this moisturiser about a year ago. Now he uses it especially in winter.

Like the cleanser, this moisturiser is quite gentle on the skin. It feels light and thin, which means you spend less time trying to massage it into your skin. It doesn’t have a strong scent to it (in fact, I can’t really smell anything on the moisturiser), which is a plus for people who are sensitive to fragrances in their creams and lotions.

I use this as a body moisturiser and sometimes as a face product if I forget to pack my face cream (it happens a lot more often than you think). My dry and dehydrated skin drinks up the moisture in the lotion especially in winter. I keep a small bottle of this moisturiser in my gym bag for use after a lunchtime workout.

Would I Repurchase? Absolutely!

L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion Foundation in Golden Ambernude magique cushion foundation closed

I purchased this cushion foundation when L’Oreal Paris launched it in March this year. At the time, Chemist Warehouse had an introductory discount to get people excited and encourage them to buy the foundation.

This foundation comes in a compact form with the accompanying cushion for an even application. It provides the perfect level of light coverage with a dewy finish. The coverage is buildable to medium by by patting the foundation loaded cushion over the areas you want higher coverage.nude magique cushion foundation

I love how portable this foundation is – leak proof and light enough to carry around with you for quick touchups. I usually carry this with me to use after a gym session at work.

I was quite surprised that I finished this foundation – this is a total first in my book! I usually either get bored and look for something new or it gets old and dries out.

Will I Repurchase? I wish that refills were available for purchase as I would definitely buy that. There’s nothing wrong with my foundations compact casing as it’s still in good condition; it would mean less plastic containers in the landfill.

Lynx deo in AnarchyLynx Anarchy

This deo launched with so much of pomp and attitude and I loved it. And Lynx for women? It’s the one and only deo in this brand aimed at women.

This deo has a fruity scent that lasts a long time. I usually douse myself with this in Summer because it is strong enough to last a hot summer day yet, the scent is not too offensive nor intrusive (you know – like some people who walk around with a cloud of fragrance surrounding them).

Will I Repurchase? Not yet; I am now trying out the Lynx Oud and Vanilla deo, which I totally love!
