Empties – January 2018

Hi there! It’s the 1st of February, so it’s time for my January 2018 Empties post. So let me show you which products I finished. 🙂

1 Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream – I enjoyed using this eye cream, and I would recommend it to everyone who’s looking for an eye cream that hydrates well and that plays well with make-up. I won’t buy this eye cream again – I just have too many eye creams in my stash!

2 Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Wash – this is a lovely body wash. I’ll buy it again, no doubt!

3 Zatik Beauty Essentials Passionfruit Cacao Organic Lotion Moisture Recovery – I didn’t love this product because it’s not the most suitable product for my skin type. I wouldn’t repurchase this particular product, but I’d like to try other products from this brand.

Olay Anti-Wrinkle 2 in 1 Instant Hydration + Radiant Glow – a lovely moisturiser! I have 1 or 2 back-up bottles, so I don’t need to stock up any time soon.

5 Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Glamorous – I loved this shower scrub – and so did my husband. So this one is a shared empty. I’ll repurchase this product again, no doubt!

B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – this is one of my holy grail products. It changed my life. I don’t want to be without it. Yes, I have several back-up bottles!

7 Claire’s Meringue Flavoured Lip Balm – this was a nice lip balm. I’ve got more Claire’s lip balms that I can’t wait to try!

8 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Leave-On Moisture Mask – this stuff is awesome. I will repurchase it soon!

9 Olay Hydration Balancing + Purifying Cleansing 2 In 1 Refreshing Face Wash – a lovely face wash. Happy yo buy it again!

10 L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Conditioner – one of the best conditioners L’Oréal ever made. It appears that, unfortunately, the Full Restore 5 Extreme collection has been discontinued. 😦

11 Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia – this is a lovely shower cream. I’ve already repurchased it.

12 Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Eau De Toilette – this is a wonderful vanilla fragrance. If you liked the original The Body Shop vanilla fragrance, you’ll love this one!

13 Sanctuary Spa Crème Soufflé – this moisturiser feels very luxurious. And I love the Sanctuary Spa fragrance! I’ll probably repurchase this product.

14 TRESemmé Renewal Hair & Scalp Nourish & Renew Deep Conditioning Masque – I think this is a good deep conditioner. I would repurchase it.

15 NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist – I enjoyed the product, but I don’t think that I’ll buy this body mist again because the big 200ml bottle takes ages to finish – and I have too many fragrances and body mists in my stash.

16 Rossmann Wellness & Beauty Mango & Ylang-Ylang Body Lotion – I bought this body lotion a very long time ago. I thought that, after such a long time, I shouldn’t use it as a body lotion, so I used it as a foot cream. Result = happy feet!

17 I Love… Chocolate Truffle Nourishing Body Butter – this body butter smells insanely delicious. This was a limited edition product, and I’m glad I bought several tubs!

18 Sanctuary Spa Intensive Heel Balm – this product is amazing. It really helps with cracked and dry heels! I would like to repurchase it, but the small tube is £7.50 which, I think, is quite expensive. So I’ll keep my eyes peeled for special offers!

19 Essence Black Eyeliner – my favourite cheap eyeliner. I have lots more in my stash. 🙂

20 Manhattan Only Button Baby Eye Palette – I’m incredibly proud of myself for finishing this eye palette!

21 Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47 Nail Polish – I got every last drop of polish out of this polish (thanks to stamping!), and I’m really proud of myself for finishing another colour polish!

I’ve also used quite a few single-use face masks – but I didn’t keep the sachets. If you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here. This is everything I finished in January. I’m very happy that I managed to empty a few more skin care products and a small eye palette! What have you emptied recently? Any product you’re proud of finishing? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

July Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for my monthly favourites post. I’ve chosen my top 3 products from all the products I’ve reviewed this month, and I have a few honourable mentions as well. Let’s start with the top 3!

3rd place – Claire’s Meringue Flavoured Lip Balm

This lip balm isn’t really meringue-flavoured, but I still love it. The random sweet flavour is pleasant, and I cannot enough of these cute meringue faces.

Runner-Up – Radox Revive & Radox Uplifting

Radox’s Revive and Uplifting shower gels share the silver medal. These shower gels are perfect for warm summer mornings. They’re awesome!

WINNER – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream

Superdrug’s Vitamin E All Over Body Cream is one of the best moisturisers I’ve ever had. 11 stars!

Now onto the honourable mentions! I liked quite a few masks this month! Montagne Jeunesse’s Berry Sorbet Peel Off and Blueberry Blast Mud Masque were very good. Superdrug’s Argan Oil Clay Mask was really good too. And I think Boots Ingredients Energising & Revitalising Sheet Face Mask With Rooibos was just awesome.

Have you tried any of these products? If so, how do / did you like them? Which products did you like best this month? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

100% Kawaii – Claire’s Meringue Flavoured Lip Balm

Hi there! Today’s short post is about a lip balm I picked up for £1 – it’s Claire’s Meringue Flavoured Lip Balm. I didn’t really need another lip balm, but I couldn’t resist the insanely cute packaging. I mean, look at it! Now let me tell you if this lip balm is any good…

This lip balm is bright pink in colour. But fortunately it only leaves a smidgen of colour on my lips. I think this lip balm is convenient to use because it’s one of those super-soft lip balms. Very nice! However, the flavour isn’t a meringue flavour, but a random sweet and fruity flavour.

I like this lip balm! It’s really good, I enjoy using it, and those cute meringue faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have a few more cute Claire’s lip balms, and I’ll try to review them asap. 🙂
