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!

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!

Empties – February 2019

Hi there! It’s the 1st of March – this means that it’s time for my February Empties post. I’ve used a number of single-use face masks. As always, I didn’t keep the empty sachets. But you can click here if you want to read about my latest face mask finds.

Another thing – I achieved something big! What? Well, over the past 2 weeks, I managed to finish 3 lip products! Wow! Anyway, read on if you’d like to know which products I finished between 1 and 28 February!

1 Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet (travel size) – one of the best shower gels ever! I hope Treacle Moon makes this available in 500ml bottles! Pretty please!

2 Flower Pharm Wild Rose Body Butter – one of the best body butters I’ve ever used. Unfortunately, it’s been discontinued! 😪

3 Garnier Skin Active Nourishing Botanical Cleansing Milk – this is a disappointing product. I wouldn’t buy it again.

4 Alberto Balsam Volume Boost Conditioner – this is a fantastic conditioner that I will buy again. If you’re wondering what happened to the matching shampoo… whenever I finish a conditioner, I pass the matching leftover shampoo on to my husband, and I start with a new shampoo and conditioner combo.

5 Tesco Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Foaming Face Wash With Grapefruit & Cranberry – a nice face wash. But I wouldn’t repurchase it because I have too many face washes in my stash.

6 Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic Shower And Bath – a nice shower gel. I might buy it again.

7 Imperial Leather Foamy Banana Bath Cream (x2) – yes, I bathed a lot in February. I had a cold, and those warm baths really helped. Anyhoo, Imperial Leather’s Foamy Banana products are simply wonderful. I need to stock up!

8 Claire’s Popcorn Popcorn Lip Balm – one of the best lip balms ever. I’m sad it’s gone because it’s been discontinued, and I can’t repurchase it. 😢

9 Freedom MakeUp London Pro Lipstick Bare 115 Mannequin – I liked the colour, but all in all, this was a low quality lipstick. I wouldn’t buy it again.

10 Manhattan Cosmetics Soft Mat Lip Cream 95G – another unloved lip product that I’m glad is finished. I wouldn’t repurchase it.

11 Vaseline Intensive Care Hand Cream + Anti-Bac – this is a nice hand cream. I have plenty of hand creams to go through before I buy any new ones, but I would repurchase this one.

12 Derma V10 Cocoa Body Butter – this is a great little body butter. I will repurchase it.

13 Treacle Moon Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise – I didn’t like this shower gel at all. It didn’t smell pleasant.

February has been another good month for empties. I’m proud of myself for finishing 3 lip products – I’ve never managed to do this before, and I think it’s been a year since I finished my last lipstick or lip balm!

Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by!
