Empties – January 2020

Hi there! The first month of 2020 is already over (What? How?), and I’ve got quite a few empties to report. Yes, I used a few single use face masks. No, I still don’t keep the empty sachets. But if you’d like to know if the masks I used recently are any good, click here. Now, onto the big empties!

1 Gliss Hair Repair Magnificent Strength Conditoner – this is a great product, and I’ll buy it (+ the matching shampoo) again!

2 Rightguard Shower + Elixir Black Orchid Shower Cream – this is a great shower cream! I already bought a backup! This is a shared empty because my husband enjoyed this shower cream too!

3 Treacle Moon Her Mango Thoughts Shower Gel – a nice enough shower gel, but I won’t repurchase it. The 500ml bottle was plenty!

4 Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel – this is a nice shower gel. I might buy it again if I find it for cheap.

5 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. It’s £1 at Poundland!

6 Yves Rocher Nutritive Végétal Velvety Cleansing Milk – this is a lovely product that I’d like to repurchase!

7 Balance Active Formula Instant Effect Wrinkle Filler – this stuff doesn’t fill lines or wrinkles at all, but it’s a decent moisturiser. I won’t buy it again though. There’s better stuff out there.

8 My Little Pony Bath Bubbles (travel size)- this one was nice. I might purchase another MLP toiletries set!

9 + 10 99p Stores Wood & Forest Body Lotion AND The Red Forest Body Lotion (travel size) – I bought these ages ago, and because of this, I used these body lotions as foot moisturisers. These are shared empties because my husband used these too!

11 Yves Rocher Baies Des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Bath & Shower Gel – a lovely shower gel that I’d buy it again if it hadn’t been a limited edition.

12 Yves Rocher Baies Des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Perfumed Body Lotion – same thing here – I wish this hadn’t been a limited edition…

13 Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Toner – a great toner! I’ll repurchase it for sure!

14 Sanctuary Spa Classic Eau De Toilette – I love this fragrance! I’ve got several bottles from years of picking up half price gift sets on Boxing Day! 😁

15 Rightguard Shower Oils Pink Jasmine Shower Gel – a nice shower gel that I might buy again.

16 Superdrug B. Comforted Camomile Facial Spritz – this is a decent facial mist, but I dislike the fragrance, so I won’t buy it again.

17 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract – an amazing moisturiser. Too bad it was a limited edition. This is the 2nd (and unfortunately the last) tub I had. If Superdrug ever decides to bring this product back, I’ll stock up!

18 Boots Botanics Luxurious Coconut Body Wash (travel size) – a nice enough shower gel. I have more minis from this range!

Wow, I emptied quite a lot in January! But to be fair, I had to get on top of all the half-full bottles and tubs before the move. And I have high hopes for February as well, so I’ll keep going! 💪 Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Please feel free to comment! And thanks for stopping by!

UNE’s lipsticks are just wow!

Gliss Magnificent Strength Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! I’ve got a hair care post for you today, and it’s about Gliss Magnificent Strength Shampoo & Conditioner. These products contain keratin serum as well as protein, and they promise to increase the strength and resistance of powerless and exhausted hair.

Gliss Magnificent Strength Shampoo is simply lovely! The shampoo feels amazing on my head and hair, and it has a cute fragrance which I’d describe as a mix of cotton candy and hairspray. It sounds strange, but the fragrance is… cute! And I really love using this shampoo!

Gliss Magnificent Strength Conditioner is just as great. It smells nice too, and I’m happy with how well it detangles my hair. I’ve also noticed that this conditioner makes my hair feel almost weightless, and that it adds plenty of volume to my hair! Fantastic stuff!

I’m very impressed with these 2 Gliss products. I started to use them right after I’d finished L’Oréal’s disappointing Dream Lengths shampoo and conditioner combo. After 2 days (= 2 uses) of Gliss, my hair looked and felt so much better already! Whilst L’Oréal’s aforementioned products were the worst hair products I used all year, Gliss’ shampoo and conditioner are simply outstanding!

Gliss Magnificent Strength Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 250ml and 200ml, respectively, for £1 each (Poundland, B&M Bargains).
