And now its June and I’ve been blogging for 5 months. I can hardly remember a time when I could finish a product and just throw away the packaging without having to make sure I’ve noted it for my empties post. First up this month is…
1.Dior Prestige Satin Revitalising Nectar
Oh dear – I’m really going to have to stop trying samples and falling in love with a product before looking up the price of the full size.
This gorgeous Dior Prestige Satin Revitalizing Nectar just melts into my skin and makes it look amazing.
” Highly concentrated with Rose Satine Nectar, this anti-aging serum deeply revitalizes the skin. Immediately, skin is as soft, supple and radiant as satin. The signs of aging seem to disappear. Apply morning and evening to face and neck before your Dior Prestige Creme”
It costs £255.00 for 30ml here. If you can afford it I swear you won’t be disappointed.
2. SkinPep® Collagen Renew – Peptide Repair Day cream
This SkinPEP Collagen Renew is something I picked up from the Anti Ageing Health & Beauty Show . As I only had the sample size I can’t say if this could make a sustained difference to my skin but it felt good going on and made my skin feel soft and supple all day.
“SkinPEP Collagen Renew contains the phospholipid lecithin to assist the absorption of peptides and our powerful Antioxidant Complex, Vitamin A (Retinol), C, & E.

3. Arbonne Make-up Primer
This Arbonne make-up primer glides on so smoothly and is the perfect make-up base. I loved using the sample I had. They say:
“Vitamin rich makeup primer visually diminishes fine lines and pores, creating a canvas for flawless makeup application. ”
It costs £26.00 here.
4. Arbonne Lip Polish
This Lip Polish from Arbonne in Posh is a gorgeous, highly pigmented lip polish. It was shiny, moisturising and glamorous. It comes in a great rage of colours but this one is my favourite for a pretty summer look.
“Luscious lip polish glides on silky smooth and delivers superior shine without the stickiness”
Each shade cost £16.00 here.
5. No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream
This Boots No 7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream is specifically aimed at my age range (50+) and is deliciously rich and creamy.
6. Dior – Capture Totale Eyes Essential Eyezone Boosting Super Serum
This Capture Totale Eyes Essential Eyezone Boosting Super Serum is from Dior – one of my favourite luxury brands. As the serum goes onto the eye area is has a cooling feel. It’s a light serum with no greasiness and it smooths the fine wrinkles nicely.
“Enter a fundamental age defying step for the eye contour area. By eliminating the skin’s toxins, eyes essential achieves exceptionally revitalized skin to heighten its youthful appearance.

7. Peter Simone P.M. cream
How gorgeous does this look? I’d even have an empty bottle just for how it looks! This is the Peter Simone PM Nectar. I used a sample for a couple of nights and really loved how it made my skin feel in just this short time.
“This is a powerful repairing cream which has a plumping effect on the skin as well as brightening the complexion and restoring elasticity.

It cost £78.00 here which is where you can also find out about all the rest of its amazing ingredients.
8. Oqibo Hydra Restore Cream
I found this Oqibo Hydra Restore Cream to be a light pleasant every day moisturiser that made my skin fell silky smooth.
“A light yet intensive daily moisturising cream combining a complex blend of marine extracts, active botanicals, vital minerals and trace elements that work to restore and strengthen the skins own natural hydrating abilities, helping to balance and regulate moisture stores, to deliver a truly thirst-quenching effect.

I can’t argue with any of that and if you would like to try it then you can find it here. It costs £33.15.
9. Soap & Glory – The Righteous Butter
I won this delightful little pot of Soap & Glory’s The Righteous Butter in a Twitter give away with another couple of Soap & Glory products that I shall up date you on another time. I didn’t try it right away as it looked pretty ordinary sitting there and then one day I thought I would give it a fair chance. And guess what ? I just love it!
It smells so lovely and girly and makes even my driest skin feel soft and pampered. I’ve used it right up and have only got one sachet of body lotion as back up – so I just might have to go out and repurchase – unless something else catches my eye. I’m afraid I’m easily tempted to try new things. But if you want a sure-fire winner then this is the right one for you!
“Award winning body butter with softening shea butter and aloe vera. Smooth on a handful after your shower and you might swear you’re wearing velvet. Scented with our Original Pink™ fragrance.”
It costs just £3 for the mini 50ml size here.
10. SkinPEP Wrinkle Clear Serum
I used a sample size of the SkinPEP Wrinkle Clear Serum and it lasted a couple of days using it on my face and neck day and night. It felt amazing and I saw visible although temporary effects with this serum as my skin looked and felt toned and taut.
They say that results may include:

11. Biotherm Biocils Eye Make-Up Removal Care
This is a product that I’ve had for so long and hardly ever used because I tend not to use eye-makeup that’s difficult to remove. It was part of a haul that I got as an apology from a Department Store that introduced me to this amazing brand. It was way off my radar as the brand name sounds like some kind of central heating company (sorry Biotherm). Now I’m hooked, whenever I can afford it.
This Biotherm Makeup Removers Biocil Conditioning Eye Makeup Remover removes any eye-make-up easily even waterproof mascara and this means that you don’t have to rub or pull the delicate skin around the eye area.
Biocils is a fragrance-free make-up remover especially formulated to gently remove eye makeup. The secret to the formula is a blend of gentle, yet effective ingredients that have been carefully selected to minimize the risk of irritation most common to sensitive eyes while effectively dissolving makeup. Ophthalmologist-tested for gentleness and suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
It’s normally £20 but if you’re quick there’s 10% off here.
That’s everything for June – hope you find something here that you liked. If you do please share your comments below.
