Empties – April 2021

Hi there! It’s the first weekday in May, so it’s time for my April Empties post. I used 11 single-use face masks – and you can read about my latest face mask finds here. Now let’s get to the bigger bottles, tubes and tubs!

1 Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Shampoo & Conditioner – I loved this conditioner (and the matching shampoo). Unfortunately, the entire Blends line has been discontinued. 😦

2 Sainsburys The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak – what a surprise find! I have repurchased this one already! My husband used this bath product too, so this is a shared empty.

3 Boots Live + Be Beautiful Connection Bath Soak – this was nice, but I wouldn’t buy it again. I’ve had enough rose-scented stuff for the moment.

4 Ciaté Cabaret – I liked this colour. I wore it on its own a few times, and it looked really good. I won’t repurchase it though. I have lots of similar nail polishes.

5 Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Lotion – a beauty staple! Love it! ♥

6 Cellio It’s True Honey Moisture Cream – a lovely moisturiser. I would buy it again!

7 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist – the perfect Mugler Alien dupe as a body mist. I have already stocked up.

8 Tesco Kind & Pure Refreshing Face Wash – a decent face wash. I’d repurchase it (although not now as I have a few other face washes to finish).

9 Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Scrub – a great product. Too bad the entire line has been discontinued! 😦

10 Radox “Perky Peach” Peach & Berry Scent Shower Gel – a great shower gel! I’d like to buy it again.

11 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Lotion – I’m glad this body lotion is gone! Bye!

12 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Shower Foam – I didn’t care for it at all, and I won’t buy it again.

13 Boots Live + Be Awakening Glow Body Mist – this was nice enough while it lasted, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

14 Creightons Manuka Honey Hydrating Hand Cream – one of my favourite hand creams. I would like to repurchase it!

15 Creightons Cocoa Butter Softening Hand Cream – another great hand cream that I’d be happy to buy again.

16 L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Repairing Cica-Masque – this is actually a really good hair mask but the fragrance started to annoy me half-way through the tub, so I won’t be repurchasing this product any time soon.

17 Boots Extracts Rosehip Body Butter – OMG, I love this body butter! The Extracts line has been discontinued, but I have a few more tubs.

And this is everything I managed to finish in April. Not bad! Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to let me know via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Revisiting Old Favourites – Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 hair products that I’m using at the moment – Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Shampoo & Conditioner. Unfortunately, these products have been discontinued and replaced with a terrible new line. But thanks to end-of-line retailers, Alberto Balsam’s Stunning Shine proucts haven’t totally disappeared just yet.

Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Shampoo is simply lovely. It has the most amazing fruity floral peach and peach blossom fragrance. I like that it’s clarifying but not drying. Great stuff!

Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Conditioner is great too. It detangles my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel soft. I’m enjoying this conditioner very much!

Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 300ml each for about £1 – £1.50 each. I’d recommend these lovely products!
