Empties – June 2018

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied in June. I used a number of single use face masks, but I didn’t keep the empty sachets (I never do). If you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here. Now, onto the big bottles and tubs! 🙂

1 Palmolive Be Sensual Shower Gel – this is a lovely shower gel that I’ll buy again. My husband used it too, so this one’s a shared empty.

2 Garnier Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver Conditioner – one of Garnier’s nicer conditioners. I’m in no rush to buy hair care products, but I would buy this conditioner (the matching and shampoo) again.

3 Radox Feel Rejuvenated Shower Cream – I love this shower gel! I need to pick up another bottle pronto!

4 Dr. Organic Organic Aloe Vera Body Wash (travel size) – this isn’t a great shower gel. I won’t purchase it again.

5 Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Butter – it was nice enough while it lasted, but I won’t be buying this body butter again.

6 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation!

7 Sukin Purifying Facial Masque – this mask was nice while it lasted, but I won’t buy it again.

8 Dr. Organic Organic Manuka Honey Body Wash (travel size) – I’m glad this one’s gone. Bye!

9 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Dragonfruit – this is a wonderful moisturiser. It’s perfect for even the hottest summer days!

10 Color Club Nail Polish (no photo, sorry) – this is one of the polishes from Color Club’s Bridal collection. I used it as a base coat. I wouldn’t buy it again, but I have a few more similar shades. I’m sorry I have no photo of the empty bottle. I threw it out by accident…

This is everything I emptied in June. I’m disappointed I only managed to finish 10 products, but I’m confident I’ll do much better this month (because I know I’ll have 5 empties alone by the end of this week). Have you tried any of the products I said goodbye to in June? What have you emptied last month? Don’t be shy – get in touch via the comments! 🙂

Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. This body butter promises to nourish and moisturise skin and to make skin feel smooth and supple. I’ve been using it for about a week now, and here’s what I think. 🙂

I agree that this body butter is nourishing. Once applied, it feels a bit sticky. But after a few minutes it’s perfectly fine. The fragrance is quite pleasant as well, but it’s pretty much watermelon only. I don’t smell any grapefruit at all. Anyhoo… I’m glad I bought this product! I didn’t love the matching shower gel, but the body butter is actually quite nice, and I would recommend it to anyone with dry skin!

Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Butter is available as 235g. I paid 99p for the tub (Home Bargains). I’ve also reviewed the matching shower gel, and you can read the review here.
