Empties – April 2021

Hi there! It’s the first weekday in May, so it’s time for my April Empties post. I used 11 single-use face masks – and you can read about my latest face mask finds here. Now let’s get to the bigger bottles, tubes and tubs!

1 Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Shampoo & Conditioner – I loved this conditioner (and the matching shampoo). Unfortunately, the entire Blends line has been discontinued. 😦

2 Sainsburys The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak – what a surprise find! I have repurchased this one already! My husband used this bath product too, so this is a shared empty.

3 Boots Live + Be Beautiful Connection Bath Soak – this was nice, but I wouldn’t buy it again. I’ve had enough rose-scented stuff for the moment.

4 Ciaté Cabaret – I liked this colour. I wore it on its own a few times, and it looked really good. I won’t repurchase it though. I have lots of similar nail polishes.

5 Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Lotion – a beauty staple! Love it! ♥

6 Cellio It’s True Honey Moisture Cream – a lovely moisturiser. I would buy it again!

7 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist – the perfect Mugler Alien dupe as a body mist. I have already stocked up.

8 Tesco Kind & Pure Refreshing Face Wash – a decent face wash. I’d repurchase it (although not now as I have a few other face washes to finish).

9 Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Scrub – a great product. Too bad the entire line has been discontinued! 😦

10 Radox “Perky Peach” Peach & Berry Scent Shower Gel – a great shower gel! I’d like to buy it again.

11 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Lotion – I’m glad this body lotion is gone! Bye!

12 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Shower Foam – I didn’t care for it at all, and I won’t buy it again.

13 Boots Live + Be Awakening Glow Body Mist – this was nice enough while it lasted, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

14 Creightons Manuka Honey Hydrating Hand Cream – one of my favourite hand creams. I would like to repurchase it!

15 Creightons Cocoa Butter Softening Hand Cream – another great hand cream that I’d be happy to buy again.

16 L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Repairing Cica-Masque – this is actually a really good hair mask but the fragrance started to annoy me half-way through the tub, so I won’t be repurchasing this product any time soon.

17 Boots Extracts Rosehip Body Butter – OMG, I love this body butter! The Extracts line has been discontinued, but I have a few more tubs.

And this is everything I managed to finish in April. Not bad! Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to let me know via the comments. And thanks for reading!

March Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for my Monthly Favourites post. I picked my TOP 3 and all the honourable mentions from the products I’ve reviewed this past month. And here they are.

3rd place – Cellio It’s True Honey Moisture Cream

I love Cellio’s honey face cream. I’m using it twice a day, and it serves me very well!

Runner-Up – Sanctuary Spa Mestizo Acai Rain Shower
WINNER – Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist

Sanctuary Spa’s Mestizo shower gel is the bomb! I’m so sad it was a limited edition.
Superdrug’s Blossom body mist smells like Thierry Mugler’s Alien – simply unbeatable!

I loved so many products in March, and this month’s honourable mentions are some of the best ones ever! I love Alberto Balsam’s Stunning Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. Boots Vitamin C Sheet Mask With Added Vitamin C is a new beauty staple. Boots Live + Be Woodland Whisper Body Mist is a new love.

Radox Perky Peach shower gel is another fabulous beauty find, while Westlab Pink Gin Epsom & Himalayan Bathing Salts With Juniperberry, Pomegranate & Lime are some of my favourite bath salts ever!

Have you tried any of these products of would you like to try any of them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for reading! x

Cellio It’s True Honey Moisture Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Cellio It’s True Honey Moisture Cream which I’ve been using as a day and night cream since January. This is a product from Korea, and it promises to hydrate and to nourish the skin. It contains honey extract, macadamia seed oil, aloe leaf juice, vitamin E, etc.

I think this is a very good face cream. It feels light on the skin, but it’s deeply nourishing. It makes my skin feel super soft without clogging any pores. It’s richer than Cellio’s acai berry face cream. And I think it’s perfect for people with dry skin that’s prone to breakouts!

Another added bonus is the subtle honey fragrance. It’s very nice. And I’m happy to report that this face cream works well with all the other products I’m using on my face – serum, face mist, foundation, etc.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this product. If you’re interested, Cellio It’s True Acai Berry Moisture Cream is available as 90ml. I paid £9.99 (TK Maxx).
