Sachets #1


 Sachets are something I seem to hold onto forever. I don't know why, but I never seem to get around to using them. As part of #NoBuyJanuary it is time to make more of an effort to use them up. I though I would just post when I had used a few up, rather than including them in my empties post at the end of the month.

 My first product is a sachet of Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream which contains Olive oil, Beeswax, Honey, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly and Propalis extract. This is a good all round cream. It's texture is more like a balm, and melts with the warmth of your hands. I have found it really useful for patches of eczema, and am very impressed with it.

 Sante Verde Aloe Vera Crème was something I found to be a very nice moisturiser and the full size is now on my wish list. As the name suggests this contains aloe vera juice. It sinks into the skin very quickly and I loved the way it made my skin look.

Madara Sunflower Tinting Fluid in Golden Beige. Unfortunately this was just too dark for my skin tone, so not something for me. The texture of this is lovely and it feel comfortable on the skin. Shame it doesn't come in a wider choice of shades.

Mendill Organic Towelletes. These are completely organic towelettes that are antibacterial, antiseptic and made with essential oils. The sample I had was in tangerine, and it smells absolutely beautiful. Whilst this was a lovely product to use, they cost £10 for 20 wipes so it isn't a product I would buy myself.


  1. Is the tinting fluid a foundation? Leanne x

  2. No, it's a tinted moisturiser. It only comes in one shade as far as I can tell.

    1. it also comes in Moon Flower which is suitable for paler skins x

    2. Thank you. That might suit me better x

  3. Hello, I have a sample of Egyptian magic cream but havent used it yet.....eager to try it now :-)

  4. Let me know how you get on with it x

  5. The mendill wipes really have got my attention, they seem to be doing the rounds on the blogs. I also have that Madara Tinted Moisturiser sachet lol but am yet to try it. :-) Great post xx

  6. Thank you. I hope the madara suits your skin tone better than mine x
