Empties – April 2019

Hi there! It’s 1 May, and this means that it’s time for my April Empties post. I used quite a few single-use face masks, but I also finished quite a few big bottles! And here they are…

1 Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Fluid – this is a truly wonderful moisturiser that I would recommend without hesitation.

2 Boots Garden Collection Lavender Body Wash (travel size) – a nice body wash that I would like to buy again.

3 Boots Garden Collection Lavender Body Lotion (travel size) – this is a lovely body lotion. I’d love to repurchase this one too!

4 Dove Go Fresh Nectatine & White Ginger Shower – this is an all-time favourite shower gel. It’s discontinued, but I have 4 more bottles in my stash!

5 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. 400ml for £1 at Poundland and other bargain stores.

6 Garnier Body Repair Anti-Dryness Restoring Lotion – a lovely moisturiser that I will buy again for sure!

7 Sante Naturkosmetik Instantly Smoothing Night Cream – I’m glad this night cream is gone. It’s one of the worst moisturisers I’ve ever tried. Good riddance!

8 I Love… Chocolate Truffle Refreshing Body Spritzer – this is a lovely body spray that really smells of chocolate truffles! Too bad it was a limited edition, otherwise I’d buy it again!

9 Maybelline Eyeliner Chestnut – I have several more of these in my rota. These eyeliners are really nice.

10 Astor Lipliner Pencil 014 Bronze – I love these lipliners. I have quite a few more of these!

11 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation!

12 Boots No 7 Protect & Perfume Intense Advanced Serum – this is a fantastic serum, and I will repurchase it, no doubt!

13 Hair Repair Rejuvenating Conditioner – a surprisingly nice conditioner. Another product that I’d like to repurchase!

14 Imperial Leather Paradise Island Bath Cream – this stuff smells amazing. I think I have another bottle or 2 of these in my stash.

15 Original Source Orange Shower Gel – another nice shower gel that I can see myself picking up again.

This is everything I emptied in April. I think I’ve done well last month! I hope I can continue to empty many more bottles, tubes and tubs over the next few months!

Dove Go Fresh Nectarine & White Ginger, Dove Go Fresh Pear & Aloe Vera

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 Dove shower gels – Dove Go Fresh Nectarine & White Ginger and Dove Go Fresh Pear & Aloe Vera. Dove’s pear shower gel is completely new to me. However, Dove’s nectarine shower gel used to be one of my favourites. Then it was discontinued, and I stashed away the last bottle I had. I didn’t buy anything else from Dove for a few years, and then, all of a sudden, I found a few more bottles of Dove’s nectarine shower gel at a local bargain store. But instead of using the shower gels, I put them in a box and stored them under the bed…

I’ve now made the decision to dip into my Dove stash, and I think that Dove Go Fresh Nectarine & White Ginger is still amazing. It feels great on my skin, and it smells like nectarine yoghurt with a hint of ginger. It’s fruity, sweet, but also refreshing. My husband loves the shower gel too. I have no doubt we’ll be going through this one quickly.

Dove Go Fresh Pear & Aloe Vera is simply wonderful. The formula is kind to skin, and the shower gel smells of juicy pears and aloe vera. I love the refreshing fragrance, and my husband is quite fond of this shower gel too. Dove did a great job with this one!

Dove Go Fresh shower gels are available as 250ml, occasionally as 500ml as well. Prices vary depending on where you shop. I don’t mind picking up my Dove products for £1 at bargain stores. 😎
