Empties – September 2018

Hi there! September is over, so it’s time for my September Empties post. Read on if you’d like to know which products I said goodbye to last month. 🙂

1 Nivea Powerfruit Fresh Shower Gel – I didn’t love this shower gel, and I won’t buy it again.

2 Classics Nail Polish Remover – I love this nail polish remover. It does its job, it doesn’t smell too bad, and it’s £1 for 400ml. I have a few back-up bottles.

3 Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Conditioner – this is a great conditioner. I will buy it (+ the matching shampoo) again.

4 Essence Black Eyeliner Pencil (x2) – I love Essence’s eyeliner pencils. They’re £1 each, and they’re great. I have no complaints about them. I have several more in my stash (and rota).

5 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream – this is a great night cream. I will buy it again.

6 Superdrug Flutter Lip Balm – I loved this balm. I think I have 1 or 2 more of these in my stash.

7 Anna Sui Eau De Toilette – this is a very enjoyable floral fragrance. It’s all about iris, rose, lilac and powder. It’s very nice!

8 Olay Gentle Hydrating Rich Creamy Cleansing Milk – this is a great make-up remover. I will buy it again, no doubt.

9 Imperial Leather Indulgence Irresistible Body Wash – this is a sensational shower gel. I have a back-up bottle!

10 Patisserie De Bain Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Crème – I didn’t love the sweet fragrance, and I won’t buy it again.

11 Boots Essentials Cucumber 3-Minute Clay Mask – this is a great face mask. Very effective! I like to leave it on for about 15 minutes, and I love the deep cleanse it gives my skin. By the way, when I cut up the “empty” tube, there was enough product left for 2 more uses for me and my husband! Yes, I will buy it again.

12 Beautifully Scrumptious Aloe Vera Body Butter – this is a nice body butter. I would like to buy it again.

13 Yves Rocher Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel – this was an awesome shower scrub. Too bad it’s been discontinued, otherwise I’d love to buy it again.

14 The Body Shop White Musk Breeze Body Purée – now that I’ve finished the 2nd bottle, I’m thinking this was actually a very nice little body moisturiser… but it was a limited edition from a few years ago, so this one’s definitely gone for good!

15 Superdrug Gentle Foaming Facial Wash For Dry Skin – another great product from Superdrug. Too bad it’s been discontinued.

I also used a few single-use face masks. I’m not counting them because I don’t keep the empty sachets. If you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here.

This is everything I emptied in September. I think I’ve done well this month! What have you emptied recently? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

  1. How long did it take you to finish off that Anna Sui perfume?
    I’m simply in awe of people who can finish off perfumes. It honestly took me YEARS to work through a 50ml bottle. 😮

    I’m using up a Body Shop mango body whip lotion which is quite nice. I’d almost sworn off all Body Shop lotions but I got this for free.
    Last month I pretty much finish up all of my day and night skincare all at once – so odd how that happens.

    • Hi Stashy, how was the vacation? 🙂

      I remember it was the Stella perfume that took you ages to finish. 😀

      I think I finished the Anna Sui perfume in a couple of months. 1ml = 5-8 sprays, 3-4 sprays in the morning, another 1-2 sprays halfway through the day… so it didn’t really take long. PLUS, this fragrance wasn’t as longlasting or as intense as some of those powerhouses like Angel, Poison etc.

      I don’t think I’ll buy TBS body lotions again, unless they’re on sale for £1.50. In which case my inner bargain hunter takes control… Glad to hear you’re happy with your mango body lotion!

      Congrats on finishing up all your skin care stuff at once. This month I’ll finish up all my skin care as well. Day and night creams, eye cream, serum, and maybe the face mist as well. Odd indeed!

  3. #2 – I bet you go through a lot, you change up your nails so often
    #4 – They really are super good, I use them all the time as well
    #12 – The branding on this one still makes me laugh.

    These empties are always so interesting, thanks for sharing!
