Empties! (December)

Heeeeyyyyy!!! 🙂 Hope you all enjoyed your New Year’s Eve and are pumped for a kick ass 2012! 🙂 I spent my NYE at a friend’s pool party, with a live band which was fun! It was very hot in Adelaide – high 30+ degrees C (and today’s even worse – 41+ degrees C!), so being at a pool party or beach party was wise! 😉 (With plenty of sunscreen etc etc of course!)

I’ve worked out my resolutions – these include exercising at least 3x a week (including weights! Historically I’ve done cardio only), to eat less processed foods, to start singing lessons (yeah! I think it will be fun! ;-)), to work to develop new and maintain current friendships, and to continue to blog regularly. What are your resolutions? 🙂

Ooh not long till entries close for my GIVEAWAY COMPETITION!!!! It is easy to enter, just click here! 🙂
(Entries close midnight 4th January 2012 Adelaide time – GMT +09:30. So hop to it!)

Unfortunately I was a bit too efficient in getting rid of my empty stuff for December – due to the renovations = mess everywhere (!) – I’ve tried to ensure that anything I don’t need is in the bin or given away (if in give away condition!). So my product pix today are from the web. 😉

This month I only used up 2 things, as follows:

Imperial Leather Luxurious Mango Butter & Frangipani Bodywash

Price range: I picked up 2 shower gels from this range for $5 AUD, which is good value I think!

Where can I get it? Most supermarkets and chemists.

This product is awesome. Smells yummy, lathers well, and lasts a long time! I find that formula is quite moisturising. I would certainly buy this again, but next time I think I’ll pick up a scent from the range which is made in Australia (I noticed that my  boyfriend’s Lime fragranced one was made here but the mango one was made in Indonesia or Thailand, from memory).

Beautiful rating: quality 5/5, value 5/5

NIVEA Visage Refreshing Facial Wash Gel

Price range: depending on where you buy it, ranging between $8 to a bit over $10 AUD.

Where can I get it? Most supermarkets, as well as chemists. I have found it to typically be cheapest at my local Coles supermarket.

I have been using this product for years and years and years! I think I have kept repurchasing it for so long as 1) I like gel cleansers that require water to wash off (as my face seems cleaner that way), 2) it has minimal fragrance so doesn’t irritate my skin. Unfortunately I am noticing that as I get older, despite my skin being combination – slightly oily, it tends to increasingly leave my skin feeling a bit tight and dry.

As such I might have to start looking at new cleansers – any suggestions?!

However I would recommend this product for those with oily skin or young (<25 yrs) combination to oily skin as it really cleans well without irritating.

I notice that the packaging says it’s for “normal and combination skin”… Hmm as I’ve suggested above, I wouldn’t recommend it for “normal” skin – I think it would be likely to dry the skin out too much!

Beautiful rating: quality 4/5, value 5/5

Whee! Whilst I’m typing I’m listening to (and half watching!) a Black Eyed Peas concert on my TV (downloaded ;)). I really like them I find their music very catchy and good to wake up and/or exercise to! What types of music do you like? Any BEP fans out there? 🙂
