Empties – May 2019

Hi there! It’s already the 3rd of June, so it’s time for my May Empties post. As always, I used a number of single use face masks. I didn’t keep the empty sachets, but if you’re interested, you can click here to read about my latest face mask finds. Without further ado, onto the big bottles, tubes and tubs! 😎

1 Nourish Balance Refining Toning Mist – I didn’t love this face mist, and I won’t be buying it again.

2 Palmolive Aroma Moments Just Fabulous – this is a lovely shower gel that I will buy again, no doubt! My husband used this shower gel too, so this is a shared empty.

3 Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret – another amazing shower gel from Treacle Moon. Another shower gel that I will repurchase.

4 Boots Botanics Skin Brightening Deep Clean Gel – this is one of my all-time favourite face washes. Unfortunately, it’s been discontinued ages ago, and this was the last tube I had. 😪

5 Beautifully Scrumptious Almond Body Butter – this is a nice body butter that I might pick up again.

6 Aussie Mega Conditioner – this is one of the best conditioners I’ve ever used. It’s not as good as the original Herbal Essences conditioners, but nothing comes close to those really. In any event, I will repurchase this conditioner (and the matching shampoo) for sure!

7 Original Source Passionfruit and Jojoba Milk Shower Milk – this is a nice shower gel that I might buy again.

8 Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner – one of Pantene’s best hair products! I would buy this deep conditioner again!

9 Superdrug Cranberry & Pomegranate Body Butter – this body butter was much older than I’d care to admit. It smelled and looked perfect, but I didn’t want to use it on my body – so I decided to use it on my feet instead. It did a great job! This body butter has been discontinued ages ago, and repurchasing it would be impossible!

10 Nivea Age Defying Q10 Hand Cream – a great hand cream! I have a few more of these in my stash!

11 Maybelline Eyeliner Chestnut (x2) – these are nice eyeliners. Now that I’ve finished these 2, I think I just have 2 or 3 more in my stash.

12 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Acid Daily Cleansing Pads – I’ll be reviewing these very shortly! 😊

13 Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Buff – a simple and unspectacular nothing colour. I used this one as a base coat. I wouldn’t buy this polish again.

I’m happy with what I finished in May! Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading! 😘

Beautifully Scrumptious Almond Body Butter

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Beautifully Scrumptious Almond Body Butter which I bought for £1 (Poundland). I’ve previously tried a different body butter from this brand, and now I’m telling you if this almond body butter is any good. 🙂

Whilst I love raw almonds, I don’t really love almond-scented toiletries because most of the time they smell rather funky. So I wasn’t expecting to like this body butter. But… surprise, surprise! The raw almond fragrance in this body butter is very natural and not overpowering. I really like it! I’m also happy that this body butter hydrates my skin well.

Beautifully Scrumptious Almond Body Butter is a nice little body butter! It’s available as 220ml for about £1 at bargain stores. If you’re looking for a new body butter, you should give this one a try!

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Caring Shower Cream And Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 products that were gifted to me – The Body Shop‘s Almond Milk & Honey Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Caring Shower Cream and Body Butter. These products are aimed at people with sensitive or dry skin.

I tried the hand cream first – and I liked it a lot! The hand cream feels nourishing, and it makes my skin feel super soft for hours. The almond milk and honey fragrance is sweet and warm – just lovely!

The shower cream is quite unusual because it’s pretty much like a cream! It feels nourishing, but it doesn’t really lather up, and it doesn’t feel very cleansing. But it smells great!

The body butter doesn’t smell as good as the hand cream or the shower cream, but it’s quick and easy to use because it melts into the skin. Having said that, this body butter isn’t as nourishing as I expected. After 12 hours the skin on my legs felt dry (the rest of my body was OK though).

I’m happy that I got the chance to test these products. However, I wouldn’t buy them for myself. Whilst the hand cream is great, I wouldn’t pay £5 for such a tiny tube!

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey hand cream is available as 30ml, the shower cream is available as 60ml and 250ml, and the body butter is available as 50ml and 200ml.

I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Nourishing Body Butter

Hi there! I hope you had a Merry Christmas! I’ve done all my sale shopping, so I went to Poundland yesterday. And I found this I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Body Butter – for £1! I just started to use the Cherry Almond Sparkle body wash a few days ago. So I was very happy to find the matching body butter for such a bargain price.
I Love Cherry Almond Body Butter
I think this body butter is a really nice moisturiser. It makes my skin feel soft and it’s not sticky. And just like the shower gel this body butter smells like cherry bakewell tarts. It’s absolutely delicious and very suitable for this time of year. What’s not to love?

I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle is available as 250ml and 500ml Bath & Shower Crème, 200ml Body Butter and 100ml Body Spritzer. I don’t know how much the 250 ml Bath & Shower Crème is, but the other three products are £2.99 each – online and at Superdrug’s. Or if you’re looking for a bargain, try Poundland and the likes. 😉
