Empties – April 2020

Hi there! Happy Friday! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in April. Read on if you’d like to know which products I said goodbye to.

1 Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Lotion – another amazing Olay product. I’ve already repurchased it!

2 Olay Essentials Refreshing Face Wash – one of the best pure and gentle face washes out there. I have a backup!

3 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic – this is an amazing toner. It’s brightening and exfoliating, and my skin tolerates it perfectly well. I’ve already repurchased this one.

4 The Sanctuary Spa Body Lotion (travel size) – I love this stuff! I have lots of Sanctuary Spa products in my stash.
5 Nivea MicellAIR Skin Breathe 2 In 1 Rose Water Cleanser & Toner – this is a terrible cleanser. Good riddance!

6 Kirstie Allsopp Nerolina Orange Blossom Shower Gel – this is a nice shower gel. It has been discontinued, otherwise I’d buy it again!

7 Palmolive Pampering Clay Body Wash – this shower gel is lovely, and I will buy it again!

8 Spa Premium Epsom Salts And Eukalyptus – these bath salts were great, and I’ll buy them again next time I’m at Poundstretcher.

9 Calcot Manor The Lazy Evening Moisture Soufflé – this is a nice body butter, and I’d like to buy it again!

10 Beautifully Scrumptious Cocoa & Vanilla Body Butter Fusion – my husband and I used this body butter as a foot butter because we didn’t like its “fragrance”. So glad this one’s gone!

11 Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Conditioner – I enjoyed this one very much, and I will buy it (and the matching shampoo) again.

12 Carex Sensitive Bath Soak – I won’t repurchase this one. I didn’t care for the fragrance, and I found the formula to be drying.

13 Palmolive Purifying Clay Body Wash – this is a lovely shower scrub that I’ll buy again.

I’ve also used quite a few single-use face masks. If you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here. All in all, I’m happy with what I emptied. And I know May is going to be a good month too because I have a few near-empties which I will focus on.

Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try any of them? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by today! 😘

Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Shampoo & Conditioner. I’ve been using these hair care products for over 2 weeks now, and here’s what I think.

Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Shampoo is clarifying and gentle at the same time. The sunny and fruity fragrance is rather unspectacular but definitely pleasant. I’ve noticed that this shampoo doesn’t cause my hair to get all tangled up, so I don’t have to use much conditioner. This is really nice – and more expensive brands should take note!

Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Conditioner was a nice surprise too. The conditioner is very thin, and I thought I’d have to use plenty of it – but no! It’s super effective, and my hair’s enjoying it very much!

As you can see, I’m very happy with my current hair care combo! If you’re interested, Alberto Balsam Zesty Orange Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 350ml each for about 99p each. I bought these 2 products at my local Savers drugstore.
