May empties

June is here which means holiday month yey!!  Not until the end of the month but it's coming around fast!

Here are my empties from May.  The standouts were:

Sephora express make up remover wipes: I really like these individually wrapped Sephora make up wipes.  Don't get me wrong I would never cleanse my face with make up wipes but these are super handy for throwing in my make up bag to clear up any smudges or smears throughout the day or for removing swatches from my hands.  They're only $9 as well.

La Roche Posay-Toleraine: This ultra gentle cleansing milk definitely helped my skin back to health when it was freaking out-I have done a few review of it here in my adult acne post.  Again, this is another budget friendly purchase.

Acqua Di Parma-Fico Di Amalfi:  I love this fragrance-it's so fresh and not overly girly.  I love it in autumn but I finished it off in Spring.  This perfume gets me compliments.  The notes are bergamot, lemon, grapefruit, and citron at the top. Fig nectar, pink pepper, and jasmine petals are blended at the heart and base notes of fig wood, cedar wood, and benzoin follow.  I would definitely repurchase if I didn't currently own 324,943 bottles of perfume.

Elemis Pro Collagen Eye Renewal: At last, an eye cream I have loved!  I bought this in a salon here in Dubai after the facialist used it on me.  It's a very hydrating yet light serum, it absorbs quickly and smoothes fine lines.  The only bad thing I would say is that the pump dispenses too much product-one pump was too much for even both eyes.  Apart from that it was the perfect morning serum.

Bite sized thoughts on some of the other bits:

Bioderma-I only use this to remove my eye make up but I found this jumbo sized bottle a bit cumbersome to use with the pump top. 

Pixi Glow Tonic-really like this-read my thoughts here.

DiorSkin Nude BB creme-I have mixed thoughts.  The coverage is good for a BB creme but it is very pink toned and I need to blend it really well into my skin.  I use something like this mainly on weekends and holidays.

Label.m/L'Oreal-items I continuously hoard these in my bathroom.  I stockpile when I go back to the UK!

Have you used any of these products?
