All Used Up, Baby #1

I've seen this sort of thing on quite a few blogs that I follow so I thought I'd give it a bash. As I said in my last post I want to give myself a few 'core' posts that I can come back to time and again, so if this is a hit, it might become a regular thing. All items are linked to Boots or Superdrug.

Alright, let's get this show on the road. I tried out the Nivea In-shower Body Moisturiser Skin Conditioner this morning, and I've got to say I was quite impressed. I tend to get dry patches of skin dotted about on my arms, and when I dried myself off they were nowhere to be seen. It's now 4PM and the dry patches are slightly visible, but this has worked a lot better than I expected. 
Would I repurchase? I would definitely buy it again if I was going on holiday, as I think it's a nice thing to add when you don't want a heavy moisturiser. 

I've worked my way through the Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing Toner simply because I couldn't justify buying a new toner until this was all gone. I am quite the newbie when it comes to toner, and I'm not sure if I was just expecting a bit more from this product. I really wanted to like it, but I don't think it's made a difference whatsoever.
Would I repurchase? No. There's too many toners out there for me to choose from to go back to this.

Garnier InvisiMineral 48hr Non Stop Anti-Perspirant Calm - what a mouthful - was an awful product for me. I really hated it. I have quite sensitive skin, so I thought this might be good for it but boy, was I mistaken. I physically couldn't finish the tube as it was making my underarms all red and itchy, which isn't a good look.
Would I repurchase? Noooo.

Well, don't I sound like a negative Nancy? Luckily, Original Source Daily Scrub is next and I really loved this. The smell was wonderful, the 'strength' of the scrub was perfect, I really did use it every day and I didn't need to worry about hurting my skin. I always come back to Original Source as there always tends to be a special edition or a 'flavour' I haven't tried. 
Would I repurchase? I already have a Lemon body wash waiting for me in the shower!

I really wish I'd had more samples of this to try, as the L'Oreal Hair Expertise EverRiche Nourishing and Taming Shampoo seemed really promising to me. I do love L'Oreal's haircare ranges, as there always tends to be something for me and my barnet. My hair did feel slightly nourished, but as I'd just dyed the ends of my hair, I suspect it would be better for less abused hair. My hair didn't put up as much of a struggle to brush through though, so that can only be a good thing.
Would I repurchase? Yes, if only out of curiosity.

As soon as I saw my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel was running low, I hit panic mode. I have used this religiously for years as my mix of sensitive, oily and dry skin really need looking after. The gel really sinks in so easily, and that is why I prefer this to the cream.
Would I repurchase? Already have, baby. 

So that's it for one month. 
If you could suggest a better toner for me, I would be hugely grateful!
