Empties – July 2019

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied last month. I’m not doing a big intro, but let me say that I finished quite a few products. Please have a look! 🙂

1-4 Ted Baker Toiletries (travel sizes) – whilst I’m grateful to have received a Ted Baker toiletries gift set from a friend, I would not purchase these products for myself.

5 Imperial Leather Polynesian Spa Passion Flower & Almond Milk Spa Escape Shower Cream – a nice enough shower gel. But I won’t repurchase it because it’s nothing special. This is a shared empty because my husband used this shower gel too.

6 Sukin Anti-Pollution Oil Balancing + Charcoal Facial Masque – this is a great face mask. I’d love to repurchase it!

7 The Crème Shop Depuffing + Anti-Imflammatory Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask – I enjoyed this product a lot. I might repurchase it (I say might because there are so many other night creams I want to try first…)

8 Nivea Free Time Shower Cream – I liked this shower cream a lot, and I would like to buy it again!

9 Radox Eastern Spirit Shower Gel – this is a nice shower gel. I’d buy it again, but I haven’t seen it in a while. I guess it was discontinued… This one’s a shared empty – my husband used and enjoyed this shower gel too!

10 Superdrug Refreshing Foaming Facial Wash For Normal Skin – this is an OK face wash. It’s been discontinued, but I wouldn’t repurchase it anyway.

11 Rimmel Lycra Pro 436 White Bright – good enough as a base coat, but I wouldn’t repurchase this polish.

12 MUA Lipstick Shade 11 – this is one of the best natural-yet-not-nude lipsticks out there. It’s a true “my lips but better” shade for me. With the help of a lip brush I was able to get every last bit of product out of the bullet! I have a backup, and I will review this lippie shortly. 😊

13 Yves Rocher Nourishing Lip Balm Framboise – I enjoyed this lip balm a lot. Since YR ceased trading in the UK, I don’t think I’ll (be able to) buy this one again.

14 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation!

15 Anovia Healthy Shine Bamboo & Lotus Conditioner – this is an average conditioner that I won’t repurchase.

16 Carex Original Shower Gel – I’ll review this one shortly! This is another shared empty.

17 Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest – another amazing shower gel from Palmolive. This one’s definitely worth buying again. By the way, this one’s another shared empty.

I’ve also used a few single-use face masks. I never keep the empty sachets, but you can read my latest face mask reviews if you click here. All in all, I’m happy with the stuff I emptied this month. Whilst more than half the products I emptied were small items, I’m glad to have finished those, and I’m thrilled (!) that I managed to say goodbye to a few more shower gels (the Radox and Carex ones took ages to finish even though my husband helped). What have you emptied recently? Feel free to comment, and thanks for stopping by!

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! 😘

Empties – April 2019

Hi there! It’s 1 May, and this means that it’s time for my April Empties post. I used quite a few single-use face masks, but I also finished quite a few big bottles! And here they are…

1 Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Fluid – this is a truly wonderful moisturiser that I would recommend without hesitation.

2 Boots Garden Collection Lavender Body Wash (travel size) – a nice body wash that I would like to buy again.

3 Boots Garden Collection Lavender Body Lotion (travel size) – this is a lovely body lotion. I’d love to repurchase this one too!

4 Dove Go Fresh Nectatine & White Ginger Shower – this is an all-time favourite shower gel. It’s discontinued, but I have 4 more bottles in my stash!

5 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. 400ml for £1 at Poundland and other bargain stores.

6 Garnier Body Repair Anti-Dryness Restoring Lotion – a lovely moisturiser that I will buy again for sure!

7 Sante Naturkosmetik Instantly Smoothing Night Cream – I’m glad this night cream is gone. It’s one of the worst moisturisers I’ve ever tried. Good riddance!

8 I Love… Chocolate Truffle Refreshing Body Spritzer – this is a lovely body spray that really smells of chocolate truffles! Too bad it was a limited edition, otherwise I’d buy it again!

9 Maybelline Eyeliner Chestnut – I have several more of these in my rota. These eyeliners are really nice.

10 Astor Lipliner Pencil 014 Bronze – I love these lipliners. I have quite a few more of these!

11 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation!

12 Boots No 7 Protect & Perfume Intense Advanced Serum – this is a fantastic serum, and I will repurchase it, no doubt!

13 Hair Repair Rejuvenating Conditioner – a surprisingly nice conditioner. Another product that I’d like to repurchase!

14 Imperial Leather Paradise Island Bath Cream – this stuff smells amazing. I think I have another bottle or 2 of these in my stash.

15 Original Source Orange Shower Gel – another nice shower gel that I can see myself picking up again.

This is everything I emptied in April. I think I’ve done well last month! I hope I can continue to empty many more bottles, tubes and tubs over the next few months!
