Hi there! I hope you had a great start into the week and into June. 😘 Today’s post is about all the products I managed to finish in May. I’ve done really well, and here’s everything I said goodbye to.
1 Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette – this is an amazing fragrance! I have a few more bottles in my stash!
2 Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist – another lovely fragance from Yves Rocher. Yes, I have a few more of these too!
3 Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion – one of my of favourite body moisturisers. I will buy it again, no doubt!
4 Manhattan Tasty Lips Lipgloss American Grapefruit – a truly amazing lipgloss. If this one hadn’t been discontinued, I’d pick it up again.
5 Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution – this is the best pore-unclogging and brightening product I’ve never used. I have a few more of these in my stash!
6 Boots The Garden Collection Rose Body Lotion (travel size) – this is a lovely non-greasy body lotion which I’d be happy to buy again.
7 Smack Beauty Sleeping Beauty Firming Night Cream – this is an OK night cream. I wouldn’t buy it again as there’s much better stuff out there.
8 Nivea Clay Fresh Deep Cleansing Shower Ginger & Basil Scent – a nice shower gel. I think I’ll buy it again!
9 Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Conditioner – one of the best conditioners I’ve ever used. I’ve already repurchased it (+ the matching shampoo).
10 Radox Scent Touch Feel Positive – this is a nice shower gel that I might buy again.
11 Rightguard Shower + Oils Purple Orchid – I love this shower gel! I’ll buy it again next time I see it.
12 Radox Eastern Spirit – this is a really nice bath gel. Unfortunately, this fragrance has been discontinued.
13 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. I have a few more bottles in my stash.
14 Burberry Brit Red – I loved this fragrance! Too bad it was a limited edition…
15 Primark PS… Pink Grapefruit Overnight Jelly Mask – this is a decent jelly moisturiser, but I won’t buy it again as there’s better stuff waiting to be used!
I also used a few single-use face masks. If you’d like to know which masks I tried recently, click here. I’m very happy with what I finished this month. I hope June will be amazing for empties too!
Thanks for stopping by! 🥰

Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance which I know I’ll finish soon – Burberry Weekend For Women. A quick look at Burberry’s web site revealed that Burberry Weekend contains the following notes: tangerine, tree sap and reseda plant (top notes), wild rose, peach blossom, iris, hyacinth and nectarine (heart notes), and cedarwood and sandalwood (base notes). If you read on, I’ll tell you what I think of this fragrance.
I think Burberry Weekend is the ultimate nice and inoffensive office fragrance. It’s light, it doesn’t last long, it smells floral and fruity – in a grown-up way, and it’s perfectly forgettable. I understand why someone would buy it (well, after all, I bought it too), although I don’t understand why someone would buy it again and again and again… I mean no disrespect to anyone who loves this fragrance. And I honestly think that Burberry Weekend is a pleasant fragrance – there’s no argument here. But it’s not very special or individual at all…
In any event, I’m glad I only bought the 30ml bottle. And as of today the bottle is about half full. I think I’ll be able to finish this one quickly. It might not be in this month’s empties, maybe not even in next month’s empties (I like warmer fragrances when it’s cold). But this one will be gone by early spring.
Burberry Weekend For Women is available as 30ml for £27, 50ml for £45 and 100ml for £60. However, it’s always on special somewhere. The 30ml bottle can usually be found for about £15, and the 100ml bottle can be yours for less than £30 if you spend 30 seconds comparing prices online. 😉
