At the beginning of July, I escaped to Turkey for a week with my oldest friend. We had a week of total relaxation, caught up on sleep, topped up our tans and pampered ourselves with some lovely products, some of which we used up completely and today I’m going to share those with you. As always, I’ve linked where you can get all of the products from in case you fancy them for yourself.
The first product was the Avon Skin So Soft Original Dry Oil Spray which I reviewed in my last empties post too. I take a bottle of this away with me every time I go on holiday and I use it to spray on my body before I go out to help to protect my skin from mosquitoes. It contains citronella which helps to keep the little blighters away.
The after sun that I used while I was away was the Bioderma Refreshing After Sun Milk. This is the second bottle of this after sun that I have used up in the last year (another review here) and I absolutely love it because it is so cooling on the skin and very moisturising. I kept mine in the fridge in the hotel room while we were away and it was heavenly to apply after a shower each day. The milky lotion is quickly absorbed into the skin and dries pretty quickly. It feels so hydrating and moisturising for such a lightweight milk and I feel as though it really helped to keep my skin in good condition after a day in the sun.
The hair oil that I took away with me was the Moroccanoil Treatment in a little 25ml bottle. I’d been using this for quite a while before I went away so I didn’t finish it all in one week as a little goes A LONG way. If you have fine hair like I do, you need to be careful about using this oil as I do find that it can weigh your hair down and make it too oily if you apply too much product. I used this on holiday when my hair was wet and once it had dried to smooth the ends of my hair. It left my hair feeling very smooth and silky which was very welcome after a day in the sun. If you’re blow drying your hair then this oil is absolutely brilliant as it really helps to create a glossy sheen on the hair. I used this a lot when I was wearing my Great Lengths Extensions and found that it worked exceptionally well with them. While I do find that it works very well on my natural hair, I don’t think that it is as good as the Macadamia Oil and for that reason, I wouldn’t repurchase it again as I’d rather buy the Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment which is also less money for more product. Moroccanoil do make a light version which I have since used and this one is now my favourite out of the two as I think that it is more suited to my hair type. Now that one, I would buy to give it a thorough road test!
The last product that I used up completely while on holiday was the Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Mineral Hair Rescue Masque that I reviewed in full in this post. If you’re looking for a masque that’s going to make your hair easy to comb through and maintain, smooth and soften it from root to tip and leave it looking sleek and healthy whilst smelling amazing, then this is the masque for you. What I love the most about it is that it works in only one minute so you can apply it while you’re in the shower, shave and wash your body in super quick time and then wash it out of your hair and you can feel immediate results that only improve once your hair is dried. Whether you dry your hair naturally or you blow dry it, this mask makes your hair feel hydrated, soft and full of life. I sometimes have quite brittle hair underneath at the nape of my neck but not with this masque, it is fabulous. I will definitely repurchase it.
