OGX Nourishing & Coconut Milk Shampoo

I really liked this shampoo! Possibly because it makes my hair smell like coconut, and I like coconut related products. As for how it helped my hair, it definitely helped make it feel fresh and shiny. But my hair can run quite oily, so I didn’t use it that much. But I don’t think you’re meant to use that much shampoo when you wash your hair anyway.

Do I recommend? Yes, especially if you like coconut!

Would I repurchase? Maybe one day, but I like trying different shampoos.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

I normally use the wipes version, but as I run out of the wipes in under a month, I decided to try the water version. This lasted so much longer! It still does a great job of removing makeup and not hurting my eyes.

Do I recommend? Yes!

Would I repurchase? Already have.

Too Faced Hangover Primer 

I only bought the travel size, so I’m not surprised this didn’t last too long. As this is another coconut related product, I already loved it. It felt like a really nice moisturizer to me. To be honest, I don’t know how great it was for prepping my skin for makeup though. I thought it did first, but after continued use, I’m not really sure. As a moisturizer though, it’s great for helping my face feel fresh! Especially after all our plane trips lately.

Do I recommend? Yes, it’s definitely something you should try!

Would I repurchase? Probably, but I want to try some other primers too.

Johnson’s Baby Shampoo

I use this for washing my makeup brushes. It’s effective, gentle, and also pretty cheap in comparison to other makeup tool washing/cleaning products.

Do I recommend? Yes!

Would I repurchase? Already have!

Derma E Overnight Peel 

I received a small sample size of this product a while back from a subscription box. I used it once a week for many months, or if I was having a breakout. You put it on before you sleep, and wash it off in the morning. If I had a massive pimple, this helped calm it down the day after, and it would go away soon after that.

Do I recommend? Yes, you should try it!

Would I repurchase? I bought a full-size version!

Bb Thickening Hair Spray

I wanted to try a volumizing hair spray, as my hair often struggles with that. This was recommended to me by a shop assistant. I don’t know if it added much volume to my hair, but it did add a little. My main struggles with it though is it had a bit of a strong ‘alcohol’ish scent to it.

Do I recommend? Not really.

Would I repurchase? Nope.

Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. I love using baby shampoo to wash off my makeup brushes. I even use it to wash my makeup off and it works great as well!

    1. It’s great for cleaning brushes! I haven’t tried it for washing off my makeup yet, but i can see how it would work well!

    1. I definitely agree!! 😀

  5. I have that shampoo as well but haven’t gotten around to it because I’m trying to finish another one first lol.
    And I hear that a lot of people always recommend that thickening hair spray, I always have a hard time with anything that claims to be “volumizing” because I feel like it only works for a few minutes then my hair becomes totally flat again 🙄

    1. It’s a really nice one and I like the coconut scent! I really can’t tell if the thickening spray did much, despite all the recommendations. Maybe it just doesn’t work on my own hair haha!

  6. I use the same micellar water and I love it so much!! xx
