I hate saying goodbye to products that I really like, especially when they cost a few ££'s and I don't have the money to replace them straight away. When I'm coming towards the end of a product I start to space out it's uses to make it last longer, however for all of these products the end just seemed to speed up, and before I knew it I was sitting down to write this.

Clinique Take The Day Off | £17 buy here

First up is this Clinique Take The Day Off make up remover for lids, lashes and lips. It is honestly the best eye make up remover that I've ever used, and it's also pretty darn good at removing stubborn red lipstick without drying your lips. I've also tried the cleansing milk, and the balm version of this too and they work just as well.
This 125ml bottle lasted me a good 6+ months which is pretty good for the price. It's really gentle, doesn't dry your skin, and is safe for those with sensitive skin or contact lens wearers. 
I would 100% purchase this again and again.

Soap & Glory Hand Food | £5 buy here

I couldn't go a day without applying this to my hands. It would follow me everywhere, in the car to tesco, on the train to university, in a lecture, date nights and friend catch ups. Everywhere I went, this went. 
I was really sad to see it end and I will most definitely be purchasing this again. It smells REALLY nice and moisturises your hands really well, especially in the cold weather we've had recently.
My friend recently bought me a huge bottle of this so I'm really pleased to have it back in my life.

Burt's Bees Deep Cleansing Cream* | £10.20 buy here

This stuff smells like those little refresher sweets (like palma violets but the multi coloured ones...?) which in my opinion is great! 
It's super moisturising, thick and creamy, and gentle on the skin, all while still removing dirt and make up! The only thing it doesn't do is removing waterproof mascara, but that isn't an issue with me as I use eye make up removers.
Would I buy it? Yes, but maybe if it came in a gift set with other Burt's Bees products.

Bleach London Reincarnation Mask | £6 buy here

I have a few of these after buying the box bleaching kits, and I must say that these are some of the best hair conditioners that I've ever used. When you bleach your hair, your hair is left really damaged and unhealthy. This mask helps to restore all the goodness back into the hair and give it some life back. Your hair is left so soft that you won't be able to stop touching it!
I would definitely recommend this to those who dye their hair often.

Herbal Essences Bee Strong Intensive Mask | £4.19 buy here

So as you may know (and I briefly mentioned it above) I have decided to be blonde. This has left my hair really weak and dry. One of the products that I've been using recently is the Herbal Essences Bee Strong mask after someone recommended it to me. 
I do like how soft and manageable it leaves my hair, but I didn't notice a huge difference in the strength of my hair. As a conditioner I think that it's great, but that's about it. I wouldn't buy this again unless it was on offer.

Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser | £2.37 buy here

I bought this ages ago when every blogger seemed to be raving about it. I do think that this stuff works but I found that if I patted myself dry after a shower, rather than rubbing myself dry with the towel, my skin stayed moisturised.
I would say that my skin felt moisturised for about half a day, which was good enough to get out of the apartment and do my daily thing before coming home.
When the colder months hit however, I found that I was using a moisturiser on top of this as my skin just became really dry - even though I got the version for dry skin.
I don't know if I would buy this again. Maybe in the summer time when my skin isn't as dry.

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think?
