Trashy Tuesdays – Products I Have Used Up


Hello Everyone,

Once again I must apologise for the long timeframe between posts. If you have been following my blog for a while then you will know I have started my own business selling my handmade soy candles and bath products which has been keeping me extremely busy and unfortunately I don’t have as much time for my blog anymore. I promise to try my hardest this year and getting posts up a little more regularly again.

I have been saving up a lot of empty products lately so I thought I would kick things off again with a trashy Tuesday, which if you are new to my blog is where I give mini reviews of beauty products I have used up that are now ‘Trash’ and I upload this posts on Tuesday’s.

Enough rambling from me, let’s get into it!

Justin Beiber Someday 50ml Eau De Parfume – ok so I’m not a fan of the Beib’s but I must say I did enjoy this perfume. The bottle is cute and the scent is very sweet and pleasant smelling. If you don’t like sweet perfumes then you will hate this one but I didn’t mind it. Would I repurchase it again? Probably not just because I have way too many perfumes and always like trying new ones but if someone got it for me as a gift I would happily use it again.

Stridex Natural Control Triangle Pads – I got these off iherb after hearing the original version being recommend by a Youtuber but decided to go for the natural ones as I only like to use mostly natural skincare when possible. These are little triangle pads soaked in a solution containing salicylic acid amongst other things and are supposed to help clear up acne. I used one each night after washing my face and it made for a nice quick and easy toner but I didn’t really notice any difference to my skin so I probably wouldn’t repurchase again.

Bee Naturals Miracle Skin Creme – I also picked this up off iherb and this is basically an all purpose balm type product that can be used on cuts, dry skin, lips or anywhere that your skin needs soothing and moisturisation. This came in hand for dry skin patches that I sometimes get and this tub lated for ages! I would recommend this and would repurchase it again although now with me making my own bath products and some skin care I think I will have a go at making something similar myself.

The Body Shop Satsuma Body Purée – I got this moisturiser for free at a body shop party I hosted and first of all I must say it smells incredible! So fresh and fruity! However I did find this to be quite thin and watery and not very moisturising at all so for that reason I would not recommend this product. I would however like to try the body butter in this scent as the body shop body butters are pretty good and this scent alone would be worth trying it out.

So that’s all for this Trashy Tuesday, I will have more posts like this coming up showing more products I have used up. Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what your thoughts are on them or what you have used up lately.

Take care guys, love yas! Xo

My New Favourite Perfume? – Beyoncé Heat Wild Orchid

Hello Lovelies,

Just wanted to pop in quick to let you know about a perfume that has recently been released into the Heat line by Beyoncé that I think may currently have top place as my favourite perfume.

The original Heat is one of my all time favourites and the one in the Orange bottle (sorry can’t remember the name) is also one of my favourites so I was super excited when I seen a new scent released in the line in a pretty pink version of the bottle.

This one is quite different from the others bring more floral and sweet. I usually don’t like floral perfumes but there is something about this one that I just love, I think it is because it is combined with the sweetness and a little warm as opposed to a more in your face, nana floral this one is quite sexy and I love it!

The notes of this perfume are;
” Top notes of Pomegranate, Coconut Water and Boysenberry. A bold floral bouquet of Butterfly Orchid, Blooming Magnolia and Honeysuckle. Blonde Woods, Skin Musk and Amber contribute to the overall impression of a sensual perfume”.

You can get this perfume anywhere that sells the Beyoncé line, I got mine at Priceline but I have also seen it at Chemist Warehouse. I would highly recommend if you are in stores and see this to go and give it a whiff.

Let me know if you have tried this one and what you think and also what your favourite perfume is.

Have a good weekend guys, thanks for reading xo
