Empties – February 2021

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied in February. I used 12 single-use face masks. I didn’t keep the empty sachets (I never do), but the big bottles are more fun anyway. 🙂

1 Westlab Cleansing Himalayan Salt – my husband and I like these bath salts a lot. I have 2 more big bags in my stash – 1 of them is already in use. Since my husband used these bath salts too, this is a shared empty!

2 Radox Feel Relaxed Lavender & Waterlily Bath Soak – I used to like this bath soak, but they changed the fragrance, and now it doesn’t smell great anymore. I won’t repurchase it. This was a shared empty too.

3 Garnier Intensive 7 Days Nourishing Lotion with Mango Oil – this is an alright body lotion. “Alright” isn’t good enough for a repurchase.

Herbal Essences Revitalise Blue Ginger Conditioner – this is a very nice conditioner. I will buy it and the matching shampoo again!

5 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Original Moisturising Shower Cream – a lovely shower gel. I have a backup bottle!

6 Paco Rabanne Ultrared (x 2) – this is a cute berry and liquorice fragrance. I think I have a few more bottles (I used to be obsessed with it when it was new about 10 years ago).

7 Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum – this is excellent for very dry skin! I might buy it again.

8 Creightons Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream – my husband and I used this hand cream as a foot cream, and it did a good job. I would (re)purchase other hand creams from Creightons, but I didn’t like how this one smelled (I’m generally not the biggest fan of argan oil scented products).

9 Rimmel 60 Seconds 313 Rita Rouge – a nice colour! I’ve worn this a lot over the past few months. But I wouldn’t buy it again. I have dozens of similar nail colours in my stash.

10 Boots No 7 Radiant Results Revitalising Daily Face Polish (travel size x 3) – these were really nice. I might buy the full-size.

This is everything I finished in February. 13 products in total (not counting the single use face masks) – not too bad! Thanks for stopping by, lovelies! x

Garnier Intensive 7 Days Nourishing Lotion with Mango Oil

Garnier Mango LotionHi there! Today’s post is about this Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Nourishing Lotion With Mango Oil.

This body lotion is aimed at people with dry skin, and it also contains L-Bifidus and zinc which are beneficial to the skin.

According to Garnier, this is a fast-absorbing body lotion. And even if you were to stop using it, your skin would still feel hydrated for up to 7 days (provided you’ve used it for at least 4 weeks prior).

I’ve been using this body lotion on and off since November, and I think it’s good but not great.

It feels good on the skin, no doubt. And I also find it reasonably hydrating, but I think this body lotion is more for people with normal skin than dry skin, and there are better body lotions for people with dry skin. The mango fragrance is nice enough, but nothing special.

I agree that this body lotion is fast-absorbing, and because of this I use it when I’m in a hurry in the morning. All in all, whilst this is a good body lotion, I don’t think I’ll buy it again. It hasn’t wowed me, and I found all the other body lotions which I tried from this collection (Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Peach, Cocoa Butter) to be more convincing.

If you’re interested, Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Nourishing Lotion With Mango Oil is available as 250ml and 400ml. I bought the small 250ml for £1.49 at Home Bargains, and I saw the big 400ml for £2.62 (half price offer) at Boots last week.
