Daisy & Delilah London @ Superdrug

Superdrug have always had a jewellery stand or two (depending on the size of the store) lurking around and looking generally a little bit out of place that I've always felt was a bit overpriced and a little bit tackyto to be honest. I've always kind of bypassed it apart from when there's been red stickers to say it's in the sale as I am unable to resist any type of sale - just ask my mum! 

However in the past couple of months I've been finding myself looking at the jewellery stand more and more each time I go in and that's mainly to do with the new brand they seem to be stocking - Daisy & Delilah London range. This week however the earrings from the Daisy & Delilah Range particularly caught my eye. A pack of three pairs of earrings for a £2.00 which I of course had to get both the stars and hearts - it would be rude not to!

So next time you're in Superdrug don't bypass the jewellery stand as you might just find some hidden gems!

Empties 2015 #2

I seem to be using up more and more products these days which is great because not only does it mean that the amount of products that I am having to store goes down it also means that I can finally get round to doing Empties posts.

So as you can see from photo above I have a lovely basket of empties which has a range of different products all used up! I will give a brief overview as well as the links to the products but I will try and not ramble and bore you all as there are quite a few for me to get through.

The first empties I have is Hair Products which is unusual for me to have so many as I normally get half way through a hair product, get bored and buy something new but lately I've been sticking it out and trying the product till the end to make sure I test it out properly and to stop wasting product.

So from the picture above the following empties are from left to right -

Urban Fudge De Gunk Deep Clean Shampoo (no link online) - This shampoo was absolutely amazing and did really deeply clean my hair and I also rarely used conditioner alongside this product as I felt my hair was better with just the use of the shampoo and it also has the most amazing citrus/mint smell! This is not online but is available in Superdrug.

Garnier Ultimate Blends The Sleek Restorer Shampoo £3.89 - This shampoo was for me personally a letdown, it just did nothing for my hair and because it was such a large bottle felt like it lasted forever which is good if you like a shampoo but when it doesn't make too much of a difference is a bit annoying. The only thing I felt this shampoo has going for it is that it smells like coconut which I found absolutely divine!

Dove 2 in 1 Nutritive Solutions Daily Care Shampoo and Conditioner £3.99 currently £1.97 for 400ml - Not too much I can say about this apart from another great hair care product from Dove and this is perfect for my lazy days when I can't be bothered to shampoo and condition my hair separately.

Ultime Essence Omega Repair Mask £5.99 currently £1.99 - At first I hated this hair mask, I felt as though my hair was horribly greasy and just felt unclean once styled but the more I used this mask the better it got and actually made my hair incredibly soft. However my favourite hair mask that I repeatedly buy is Dove Hair Nourishing Oil Care Repair Mask £4.59. You can leave this mask on for 2 minutes or 10 minutes, depending how much repair you want to give your hair and afterwards my hair just feels so weightless, soft and refreshed which is everything I want my hair to be.

Boots Skin Clear Deep Cleansing Lotion which I've mentioned time and time before, it's one of my trusty holy grail products that I always have a spare or 2 in the cupboard waiting and then a new face product - Nivea Pure and Natural Cleansing Toner £3.49.
Now Nivea is for skin care like Dove is to me for hair care but I was so unimpressed with this product and I don't really know why if I'm being honest. It wasn't a truly terrible toner or anything but I just feel as someone who really loves Nivea products that this was just not good enough for the money so won't be repurchasing this in the future.

So my 2 final empties are Primers and the first one is Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer for Sensitive Skin £4.99 which is a primer I've been using for years. I just love the hydrating factor of it and in the mornings when sometimes I wake up and don't moisturise I find that if I use this it acts unofficially as a 2 in 1 primer/moisturiser.

My final empty is Witch Anti-Blemish Skin Clearing Primer which I find just amazing BUT suddenly it's DISAPPEARED from the shelves of Superdrug, Boots, Savers etc etc plus it's no longer on their websites. I am assuming this has meant that it's been discontinued which makes me sad face because I love this product. Much like the Nivea primer this also moisturises although this isn't as heavy which always made me reach for this when I was in a rush and needed to apply my make up straight on top instead of waiting for it to sink in. 

It was also great when my skin wasn't being particularly co-operative and so could therefore apply as I knew the primer would act as a barrier to the make up and clear my skin. Unfortunately I won't be using this again as this was my last bottle but never mind I'll have to find something just as good to replace it!

So that is my empties for now, as it's taken me so long to write this up I have managed to accumulate for empties for another post very soon! But let me know if you've tried any of the products I've mentioned and your thoughts on them!

Thanks for reading!
