Empties – March 2019

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in March. As always, I used a number of single-use face masks. I don’t keep the empty sachets for my monthly empties posts, but you can click here if you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds. Now… onto the big bottles and tubs! 🙂

1 I Love… Chocolate Truffle Nourishing Body Butter – this is one of my favourite body butters. It smells like chocolate ice cream! I have a few more tubs of this body butter.

2 True Skin Hydrating Facial Water – I’m glad this stuff is finished. I didn’t like it at all. Good riddance!

3 Palmolive Naturals Pampering Touch Shower Milk With Coconut – this is a lovely shower cream. And it doesn’t smell of coconut at all! Great stuff! I will repurchase this one, no doubt.

4 Palmolive Aroma Moments So Luminous Shower Gel – this is a nice shower gel that I can see myself buying again.

5 Super Facialist By Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask – this is a great mask. Very effective! At the moment I have too many face masks to even think about repurchasing any of them, but this is definitely one I would be happy to have again.

6 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish – this is a great product. I had it before, and I’ll buy it again.

7 Daily Defense Moisturising Conditioner With Keratin – one of my all-time favourites. I have 2 more shampoo and conditioner combos in my stash!

8 Dolly’s Mixtures Candy Floss Sweetness & Light Shower Gel – this is a cute shower gel. It’s very sweet! I might buy it again.

9 Yves Rocher Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel – a lovely shower gel. Too bad it was a limited edition.

10 Yves Rocher Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Perfumed Body Lotion – another nice YR product. Limited edition as well.

11 Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter – good but not great. I wouldn’t repurchase it, but it were part of a gift set, I wouldn’t mind using it again.

This is what I used up in March. It’s not much compared to the past few months, but I’m not unhappy. As long as I finish at least 10 products per month, I won’t complain. 😎

What have you used up recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro PolishHi there! A few weeks ago I fell in love with Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Renewal Face Mask. So I wanted to try a few more products from Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant range.

Superdrug also ran a half price promotion. Needless to say, I bought several products. 🙂 But now let’s focus on Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish.

This product promises to exfoliate skin, to refine skin texture and to clarify skin discolouration with the help of kiwi and mulberry extracts, blueberry seeds and fruit acids.

As per the instructions on the back of the tube, this micro polish should be… (I’m almost quoting) massaged over wet or dry skin in a circular motion. Then you’re supposed to add a splash of water and work the product into a lather. And then the product should be rinsed off.

Oh, and this micro polish scrub is meant to be used once or twice weekly.

When I used this product for the first time, I noticed that it wasn’t as gritty as I thought it would be. That’s because this micro polish doesn’t contain any harsh and abrasive ingredients like ground walnut shells or crushed apricot seeds. So whilst this micro polish doesn’t give my face the St. Ives treatment, I can definitely feel its cleansing and exfoliating powers. And I don’t have to worry about microscopic cuts on my skin surface. 🙂

By the way, other scrubs that don’t contain walnut shell powder or crushed apricot seeds are Superdrug’s Simply Pure Smoothing Face Scrub and Olay’s Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub (which, I think, is being discontinued – it’s now available for £1 at Poundworld and Bargain Buys).

Now back to Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish. 🙂 I think it’s a fab product and I’d recommend it in an instant. I’ll continue to use it weekly and I’ll definitely buy it again! The 75ml tube is usually £4.99. But I paid £2.45 only for my micro polish. So I suggest you keep your eyes peeled for half price or BOGOF offers to get the best deal! 🙂

By the way, since I’ve been so impressed with the face mask (I use it every Saturday) and the micro polish (I use it every Tuesday), I bought a few more Naturally Radiant products which I’ll review within the next couple of weeks.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the post. 🙂
