Empties – March 2021

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to in March. I used a few single-use face masks, and you can read my latest face masks reviews here if you’re interested. But let’s get to the big bottles now!

1 Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel – I love this shower gel, and I’ll buy it again! I also found the matching hand wash at my local B&M Bargains store. Score!

2 Palmolive Gourmet Chocolate Passion Body Butter Shower Cream – I like this one a lot. And yes, I’d like to buy it again.

3 Alberto Balsam Exotic Mango Shampoo & Conditioner – I enjoyed this conditioner (and the matching shampoo). Repurchase? Yes!

Beckham Fragrances Signature For Her (x 2)- I love this fragrance! I’m so sad it’s gone. Unfortunately, all the ladies fragrances under the Beckham brand have been discontinued. 😭

5 Skin Food New Zealand Mud Masque – a very nice mud mask! I’d buy it again!

6 M&S Discover Spiced Bergamot– I love this fragrance! I finished this little 30ml, and I’ve already bought a 100ml bottle!

7 M&S Discover Water Jasmine – as above! Love it, and repurchased a big bottle already.

8 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender – this is a really nice body cream. I think I’ll buy it again at some point.

9 Rimmel Stronger Double Duty Base Coat – I love these! I think I have a few more of these – well, I would hope so! I don’t think these can be found in the shops anymore…

10 Soap & Glory Hand Food – not a favourite for hands, but it did a decent job as a foot moisturiser. Overall, too expensive for what it is, so I won’t buy this one again!

11 Beauty UK 73 Blue Moon – a lovely light blue polish. Too bad the brand can’t be found in the shops anymore – their nail polishes were fab!

12 Palmolive Delicate Care with Almond – one of my all-time favourite shower and bath products. I haven’t seen this in a while, and I hope it hasn’t been discontinued. 😬

13 Westlab Cleansing Himalayan Salt – these are awesome, and I have another big bag in my stash.

I think I’ve done well with my empties in March – especially with the fragrances! Which items have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to let me know via the comments, and thanks for reading!

February Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the end of the month, so it’s time for my Monthly Favourites post. As usual, I picked my favourites from all the products I reviewed this past month, and there’s a Top 3 as well as a few honourable mentions.

3rd place – Alberto Balsam Exotic Mango Shampoo & Conditioner

Alberto Balsam did a great job with these amazing mango-scented hair products.

Runner-Up – Jayjun Pollution-Proof Refreshing Mask

Jayjun’s green sheet mask was a lovely surprise! I can’t wait to stock up!

WINNER – Agent Provocateur Fatale Eau De Parfum

Fatale is simply a great fragrance. I already bought a big 100ml bottle as a backup!

Onto the honourable mentions! Radox Mineral Therapy Muscle Soak Bath Salts, Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Original Moisturising Shower Cream and Palmolive Gourmet Chocolate Passion Body Butter Shower Cream are super lovely.

Boots No 7 Radiant Results Revitalising Daily Face Polish, Creightons Manuka Honey Hydrating Hand Cream and Masking Beautifying Rose & Green Tea Sheet Face Mask are awesome too!

Alberto Balsam Exotic Mango Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 hair care products which I’m using at the moment – Alberto Balsam Exotic Mango Shampoo & Conditioner. These products have been reformulated, and they’re aimed at all hair types.

Alberto Balsam Exotic Mango Shampoo is very nice. It’s a clarifying shampoo that doesn’t feel drying. The beautiful mango fragrance is an added bonus!

Alberto Balsam Exotic Mango Conditioner is great too. The conditioner is on the thinner side, but it detangles my hair quickly and makes it feel super soft. Amazing!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these products. Alberto Balsam Exotic Mango Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 350ml for £1 each.
