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!

Garnier Body Repair Anti-Dryness Restoring Lotion For Extra Dry Skin

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Garnier Body Repair Anti-Dryness Restoring Lotion. This body lotion with maple sap is aimed at people with extra dry skin.

It promises nourishment extraordinaire as well as soothed and protected skin that’s free from discomfort, tightness and roughness.

I used this body lotion a lot in 2005 and 2006, but I somehow “forgot” about it when I jumped on the body butter bandwagon. But a little while ago I saw this body lotion on sale for £1.59, and I remembered that I used to like it a lot, so I picked it up.

I’ve been using this body butter on and off for 2 months now, and I think it’s just as amazing as it used to be back then.

The formula is a dream. It’s easy to apply this body lotion. It’s a true lotion, so it’s not sticky at all. However, it does feel like a soothing and protective layer on the skin. It’s lovely.

The fragrance is pleasant too. I can’t liken it to anything, but it’s one of those cosmetic scents which are perceived as nice all year round.

If you’re looking for a body lotion that nourishes skin deeply and pretty much immediately, you should give this one a try! Garnier Body Repair Anti-Dryness Restoring Lotion is available as 250ml and 400ml. I paid £1.59 (special offer) for the 250ml bottle.
