July 2016 Empties

Yay, more empties! I moved my whole beauty stash down with me to Melbourne and made it a goal to come back with half of it. Going through these empties will definitely help with that goal!

Without further ado…

Batiste Dry Shampoo – I already have a few back ups ready to go. This is my HG dry shampoo. It is effective and nothing else compares! I’ve recommended this to anyone who will listen.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea body butter (review)* – I was using this on and off over the last year (lol) but really amped it up during this Winter as my skin got ridiculously dry.

Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea Anti-Bacterial hand gel – one of my favourites and always gets comments whenever I use it in the office. I stocked up on a few of these when I was last in the States and stocked up some more when I passed the Sydney domestic airport store! The scent reminds me of Gobstoppers – very sweet and floral.

Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow hand cream – a fruity-floral scent infused with shea butter and macadamia nut oil to keep my hands moisturised without being greasy. I love Crabtree & Evelyn for hand creams because they’re absorbed quickly, keeps my hands soft and have a wide range of scents.

Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia mini candle* – this was the perfect Autumn scent to burn. It’s a warming, hearty mix of pear, white freesias, amber and patchouli. Sure, the price tag makes you gawk a little but it burns flawlessly and the fills the room up with a lovely scent. The packaging is very aesthetically please as well – clean and simple that would not look out of place no matter where you display it.

TN Dickinson’s With Hazel – another HG for my oily skin. I use this as a toner after cleansing to control the oil production on my t-zone. Works well for me for years and when I forget to buy a back up, I can definitely notice a difference in my skin.

Batiste x Market HQ

When I first ventured into dry shampoo, the brand that kept popping up was Batiste. That was a couple of years ago and today, Batiste is the only dry shampoo I will ever use.

Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo $9.99AUD/200ml

Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo $9.99AUD/200ml

I was recently sent Batiste’s new dry shampoo in Cherry to trial and I must say that I prefer the scent of this new one over the original one. At first, I was quite apprehensive in using the new Cherry dry shampoo as I have found that many products with a cherry scent was just way too sickly sweet for my liking. Well, surprise, surprise! The Cherry dry shampoo has a much more muted floral sweet scent but not too overpowering.

As always, spray at least 30cm away from hair to avoid it looking grey (see my during picture). I let it sit for about 10 seconds and then start to ‘fluff’ up my hair and a quick brush through and my greasy hair is transformed into fresh and soft hair. My hair didn’t feel weighed down at all. (Please excuse my regrowth {although I think it shows the dry shampoo effect much better}. Regrowth has since been taken care of!)

To celebrate the launch of Batiste’s new Cherry dry shampoo, Batiste has teamed up with Market HQ and created a styling app, called Cherry Pick Your Look, on their Facebook page – here – where you can win one of two $1000 Market HQ wardrobes!

The app is straight-forward to use – just decide whether you want to do tops + bottoms or dresses, then decide on the accessory, shoes and bag to match your chosen outfit.

Have a look at what I came up with – something nice and simple that I’d wear to lunch or dinner with some girlfriends:

I love the colour red and think that simple dresses like above are flattering on my body shape. I chose the sunnies in a similar shade to get a bit matchy-matchy. The clutch is probably the only one that would ‘stand out’ in the whole outfit with the studs design and those heels – gorgeous.
