This is my second 'Beauty Bin' that is filled with beauty related products that have been used up over the last months. I do not use all these products up in one month. Some of these are over one year old. If I would use this in one month, then I would be smearing and showering non stop without sleeping ;)
More about the products after the picture.
My question to you; have you found a great waterproof make up remover that is affordable and gets rid of the strongest of waterproof mascaras? Please let me know in the comments!
Caudalie Huile Divine 15 ml Travel Size
This oil can be used for body, face and hair. I have only used this for my body. It's bigger brother is standing in my closet and is actually a spray. The travel size is just a glass bottle without the spray top. Like this it is more difficult to spread the oil and you will most likely waste some of it too, if you are a bit clumsy like me. For traveling it is not the best because of the glass bottle. Therefor I will not refill it and will use a plastic container instead.
Korres Guava Body Butter 125 ml
One of the best smelling body creams out there. I wouldn't call it a body butter because it is light like a body lotion and nothing like the Bodyshop body butters. I used it mainly for my arms and hands before bed time. I find the scent really calming and perfect before falling asleep. During my review on Korres Guava products, I wrote that it wasn't available in Germany anymore. Well, I found them again in Mueller and already got myself a back up.
Balea Soft Oil Balm 200 ml
Still the perfect body lotion for me. I keep on repurchasing this until they stop making it. It contains 40% oil, so it is really oily. It doesn't make the skin sticky like so many body lotions. A great pro is that it leaves your legs nice and shiny. Perfect for summer legs.
Alverde Shower Gel 'Vanilla Manderin' 250 ml
This smells like lemon cheese cake. It does the job, it's vegan and good for the skin. It cleanses gently, but doesn't really hydrate the skin so well. You would still need to apply a body lotion afterwards.
Korres Guava Shower Gel 250 ml
Since I got so hooked on the scent of guava, I decided to also get the shower gel. I've used it up, it does the job, but is nothing really special. I won't be buying this again because it is way too pricy compared to other cheaper shower gels that do a much better job.
Balea Med Ultra Sensitve Cleansing Milk 200 ml
This I use every morning to gently cleanse my face. It is extremely mild and perfect for my sensitive face. Too many times have I gotten rashes from face wash products. This one is safe to use and has been my nr. 1 since many years.
Bioderma Crealine H20 Make up remover for sensitive skin 500 ml
This has to be the most hyped make up remover in the beauty scene. Many professional make up artists swear by this products, so all the other beauty fanatics run to the shop to get it as well. So did I. This has to be my 8th bottle so far. I use this to take off the make up on my face before I use a face wash. It doesn't take off waterproof mascara unfortunately. I haven't gotten any rashes from this product so I am sticking to it. At the moment I am testing a cheaper alternative from the drug store. Will report back once I've used to for a while.
Rexona Women Deo roller 'Shower Fresh' 50 ml
Smells lovely and does the job. I am trying out different deodorants without aluminum.
P2 Base + Care Coat 10 ml
My base coat for as long as I can remember. Totally affordable and can also be used for a neutral nail if you apply two coats. It dries fast and makes the nail polish last without staining your nails.
Aveo Nail polishr remover 'Berry' without acetone
It dries out my nails and has an excruciating scent. Will not buy this again.
Ebelin makes better nail polishes without acetone that don't dry out my nail or nose and brain for that matter.
Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer '02 Light' 8g
A great concealer that has lasted me years. Now it is time to throw it out because the formula has dried out and it is getting old.
Korres Guava Lip Butter 6g
This was standing at my night desk for quite some time. I never used it during the day because it a white lip butter and also not suitable as a base for lipsticks. The scent is lovely, but I prefer to use other lip care products that are easier to use.
Kryolan Hydro Oil Make Up Remover 300 ml
A great product to take off waterproof mascara. It lasts a long time and does the job pretty well. I still haven't found a make up remover that really takes off that nasty waterproof mascara that lasts for 75 hours.
Dove 'Invisable Dry' deo spray 250 ml
Another deodorant that contains aluminum chlorohydrate. It does the job, but is not the healthiest option for your body. I prefer rollers because they don't suffocate me. Rollers have the disadvantage that it takes forever to dry.
Andrelon 'Oil & Care' intensive conditioner 300 ml
A great drugstore conditioner for slightly dry hair that doesn't wear the hair down. It is affordable and you get a lot of product.
Kerastase Elixir Ultime Shampoo for all hair types 250 ml
The scent got to me, but the oil in the shampoo makes my hair get greasy really fast. There are better shampoos out there that are less pricey.
GHD Heat Protectant Spray 120 ml
I have used this all the time before I would curl my hair. Smells divine and has a great 'spray'. It distributes the product nice and evenly and doesn't leave wet patches in the hair.
Rituals 'Brilliant Bliss' Indian Rose & Shikakai shampoo 70 ml
A great shampoo to travel with. My scalp had to get used to it, but my hair loved it. Super shiny and silky soft. The scent is also amazing! I might get the full size one day.
Carols Daughter Monoi Reparing Hair Mask 200g
A souvenir from my last tour in the US. Absolutely amazing hair mask. It doesn't contain parabens, petroleum, mineral oils or artificial colors. The scent is really strong, you have to like it because it wears like a perfume. The boys in my band loved it and I even had to buy it for one of our crew guys. This seams to be a scent that guys like as well.
