Empties – June 2022

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to in June. I used a few single-use face masks, and you can read about my latest face mask finds by clicking here. But let’s focus on the bigger bottles now!

1 MakeUp Gallery Time To Shine Completely Clear 1 – Poundland’s own brand clear polish. Not the best clear polish, but definitely good enough as a base or top coat.

2 Caudalie Thé Des Vignes Eau Fraîche – a pleasant enough but basic fragrance. I wouldn’t repurchase it.

3 Boots Rose Toner – a decent toner. Better than Garnier’s rose toner, but I don’t think I’ll buy it again.

4 Sukin Rosehip Hydrating Day Cream – not the best face cream for my skin type. Another product I wouldn’t buy again.

5 Nivea Caring Shower Gel Splashy Ocean – a really nice shower gel. I would buy it again.

6 Original Source Blood Orange Daily Scrub – this one is really nice! Too bad it’s been discontinued.

7 I Love… Mango & Papaya Bubble Bath & Shower Crème – a lovely shower gel. I would repurchase it!

8 Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Conditioner – holy grail stuff. I have plenty of backup!

9 Maui Moisture Body Care Detoxifying + Volcanic Ash Body Lotion – not my favourite body lotion. I wouldn’t buy it again.

10 Original Source Mango & Macadamia Shower – this is a lovely shower gel. Unfortunately discontinued. I might have another one in my stash.

And this is everything I finished in June. Not terrible, but definitely not a great month for finishing up stuff. I hope I can do better in July as there’s new stuff I want to buy (but I need to make space first).

Caudalie Thé Des Vignes Eau Fraîche

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Caudalie Thé Des Vignes Eau Fraîche which I bought last year.

The small 30ml bottle got lost in my stash, but I managed to find it a few months ago, and I’ve been using it on and off since then. So let me tell you about this fragrance.

Thé Des Vignes contains the following notes: tea, orange flower and jasmine (top notes), grape, neroli and ginger (heart notes), and musk, woody notes and honey (base notes).

The notes sound really lovely, but the fragrance is rather simple. All I get from Thé Des Vignes is a mix of tea and orange flower, with a pinch of ginger. I cannot smell any grape, musk or honey.

The fragrance is definitely nice enough and very suited to the warmer summer months, but it’s very one-dimensional and also rather fleeting (it’s just an Eau Fraîche after all). I’m happy to use up the bottle I have, but I wouldn’t repurchase this fragrance.

If you’re interested, Caudalie Thé Des Vignes Eau Fraîche is available as 30ml and 50ml. I have the 30ml, and I paid £13.20.
