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!

Daily Defense Pomegranate And Vitamin E Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about the hair products I’m using at the moment – Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner. Daily Defense is a Canadian brand, and they state that their products are cruelty-free. This is great! Now let’s focus on the products. 🙂

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo is very nice. It’s low in sulfate, but it lathers up perfectly, and it cleanses my hair gently. The fruity fragrance is a bit random, but I like the shampoo very much.

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Conditioner is very effective. It detangles my hair with ease, it makes my hair feel soft and silky without weighing it down. Again, the random fruity fragrance is rather unspectacular, but in all other aspects this is a great conditioner which mops the floor with comparable products from brands like Pantene or Garnier.

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 473ml each. I paid £1.25 each – a total steal!

Daily Defense Body Wash – Moisturizing Argan Oil & Moisturizing Pomegranate

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Daily Defense shower products – Daily Defense Argan Oil Body Wash and Daily Defense Pomegranate Body Wash. These 2 products were made in Canada, and they’re cruelty-free!

Alright, let’s start with Daily Defense Argan Oil Body Wash! I’ve been using this shower gel on and off since November. And I like it a lot! This shower gel feels gentle and hydrating (!), and it smells warm and creamy. Very nice! My husband tried this shower gel as well – and he agrees. 🙂

Daily Defense Pomegranate Body Wash is nice too. It feels just as gentle as the argan oil shower gel. I’d describe the fragrance as a pink fruity mixture. It’s not the most exciting fragrance for a shower gel, but it’s nice enough.

Daily Defense Argan Oil Body Wash and Daily Defense Pomegranate Body Wash are available as 473ml and 946ml. I paid 99p for the big Argan Oil Body Wash and £1.79 for the big Pomegranate Body Wash.

If you’d like to try Daily Defense products, you should swing by your local Home Bargains and Pounstretcher stores! 🙂

Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 hair care products that I’ve been using since December – Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil. These products are cruelty-free, and they were made in Canada!

I don’t have dry hair. I bought these products because I’ve been impressed with Daily Defense’s Keratin products and their Argan Oil products. And now that I’ve been using the Macadamia Oil products for a few weeks now, let me tell you if they’re equally good. 🙂

The shampoo is very nice. It feels wonderful. I’d describe the formula as creamy, dreamy and soothing. However, the shampoo doesn’t make my hair feel oily at all. It makes my hair and scalp feel cleansed and nourished at the same time. Awesome!

The conditioner is just as lovely. It helps me detangle my hair with ease, and it leaves my hair feeling super soft and silky without making it feel or look oily. It’s definitely in my all-time top 10 of conditioners!

I think these 2 products are wonderful. And I would recommend them to everyone! Oh, and in case you’re wondering… these two products smell like a mix of shea butter and coconut water.

Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil are available as 473ml each for about £1. If you want to try Daily Defense’s awesome products, you need to swing by your local bargain stores!

Daily Defence Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Argan Oil

Hi there! Today’s review is about a hair care combo I started to use over a month ago – Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Argan Oil.

I’d never heard of the brand Daily Defense until I found a couple of shampoos and conditioners at my local Poundstretcher store. The big 473ml bottles were £1 each, and the products were cruelty-free and made in Canada. So I thought I’d be stupid not to buy them! I’ve already reviewed the other Daily Defense shampoo and conditioner combo, and now I’m telling you if these hair products with argan oil are any good.
daily-defense-argan-oil
I really like the shampoo. It’s quite runny (just like the keratin shampoo), but it feels great on my head – it’s very gentle which is really nice! Oh, and the shampoo is low in sulfate, but it lathers up perfectly well. Awesome! The conditioner is very good. It helps me detangle my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel incredibly soft and silky. I noticed a huge difference right after the first use. This conditioner made me realise how average L’Oréal’s Nutri-Gloss Crystal Conditioner and Superdrug’s Aloe Vera & Mango Conditioner were.

I think this hair care combo is outstanding! These 2 Daily Defense products are suitable for most hair types (but not oily hair), and they mop the floor with half of L’Oréal’s offerings. They’re also light years ahead of everything Pantene has ever done. And I’m saying this as someone who buys L’Oréal and Pantene products regularly. Oh, by the way, these 2 Daily Defense products smell very nice. I can’t really describe the fragrance, but it smells creamy and warm. Absolutely lovely!

If you’d like to try Daily Defense’s Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Argan Oil, swing by your local bargain stores! I bought these two big 473ml bottles for £1 each (Poundstretcher), and I’ve also seen the shampoos in jumbo bottles (probably around 900ml) for £1.49 at Home Bargains! Now go, buy and try! I’d love to hear what you think about these Daily Defense hair products!
