Empties – September 2018

Hi there! September is over, so it’s time for my September Empties post. Read on if you’d like to know which products I said goodbye to last month. 🙂

1 Nivea Powerfruit Fresh Shower Gel – I didn’t love this shower gel, and I won’t buy it again.

2 Classics Nail Polish Remover – I love this nail polish remover. It does its job, it doesn’t smell too bad, and it’s £1 for 400ml. I have a few back-up bottles.

3 Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Conditioner – this is a great conditioner. I will buy it (+ the matching shampoo) again.

4 Essence Black Eyeliner Pencil (x2) – I love Essence’s eyeliner pencils. They’re £1 each, and they’re great. I have no complaints about them. I have several more in my stash (and rota).

5 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream – this is a great night cream. I will buy it again.

6 Superdrug Flutter Lip Balm – I loved this balm. I think I have 1 or 2 more of these in my stash.

7 Anna Sui Eau De Toilette – this is a very enjoyable floral fragrance. It’s all about iris, rose, lilac and powder. It’s very nice!

8 Olay Gentle Hydrating Rich Creamy Cleansing Milk – this is a great make-up remover. I will buy it again, no doubt.

9 Imperial Leather Indulgence Irresistible Body Wash – this is a sensational shower gel. I have a back-up bottle!

10 Patisserie De Bain Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Crème – I didn’t love the sweet fragrance, and I won’t buy it again.

11 Boots Essentials Cucumber 3-Minute Clay Mask – this is a great face mask. Very effective! I like to leave it on for about 15 minutes, and I love the deep cleanse it gives my skin. By the way, when I cut up the “empty” tube, there was enough product left for 2 more uses for me and my husband! Yes, I will buy it again.

12 Beautifully Scrumptious Aloe Vera Body Butter – this is a nice body butter. I would like to buy it again.

13 Yves Rocher Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel – this was an awesome shower scrub. Too bad it’s been discontinued, otherwise I’d love to buy it again.

14 The Body Shop White Musk Breeze Body Purée – now that I’ve finished the 2nd bottle, I’m thinking this was actually a very nice little body moisturiser… but it was a limited edition from a few years ago, so this one’s definitely gone for good!

15 Superdrug Gentle Foaming Facial Wash For Dry Skin – another great product from Superdrug. Too bad it’s been discontinued.

I also used a few single-use face masks. I’m not counting them because I don’t keep the empty sachets. If you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here.

This is everything I emptied in September. I think I’ve done well this month! What have you emptied recently? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

I love these lip balms! And the cute Pusheen images are an added bonus. Awesome stuff!

This serum is simply awesome! I would recommend it to everyone! It’s a truly impressive product!

Onto the honourable mentions! I like Prada’s Infusion d’Iris Eau de Toilette very much, Creightons’ Pink Grapefruit Mattifying Face Mask is a total bargain, Nivea’s Waterlily & Oils shower gel is sensational, and Possibility’s Amber & Lavender Shower Scrub is another awesome product.

Gliss Supreme Length Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo & Conditioner with keratin serum and micro-repair liquids. These products are aimed at people with long hair that’s prone to damage and split ends.

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo is really lovely. It feels great on my head and hair, and I’m satisfied it cleanses my hair gently. I also love the fragrance – it’s similar to Gliss’ Liquid Silk fragrance, just a bit lighter and fruitier. It’s very nice!

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Conditioner is a very good conditioner. It detangles my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel super soft and silky without weighing it down. The lovely fragrance is an added bonus!

I am very happy with these 2 products. After Aussie’s below-average Colour Mate conditioner and L’Oréal’s terrible Fibrology Air anti-conditioner, these 2 Gliss products are a real treat. They make my hair look and feel awesome. My hair is bouncy, soft and glossy. I love it!

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo (250ml) & Conditioner (200ml) are available for about £1 each at Poundstores and bargain stores. I would recommend these products to everyone who’s looking for hair products that make hair soft without flattening it. I will definitely buy these hair products again!
