Empties – June 2021

Hi there! It’s the first of a new month (wow, halfway through the year already…), and this means that today’s post is about all the products I finished last month. As always, I used a bunch of single-use face masks, and you can read about my latest face mask finds if you click here. Now, let’s look at the big bottles, tubes and tubs!

1 Agent Provocateur Fatale Eau De Parfum (50ml) – what a beautiful fragrance! I’ve already repurchased it – and I went for the big 100ml bottle this time!

2 Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel – this is a good face wash. But the strong yuzu scent put me off, and that’s why I won’t repurchase this face wash.

3 Anna Sui L’Amour Rose Versailles Eau De Parfum – this is a really nice fragrance, and I enjoyed wearing it very much, but I won’t buy it again.

4 Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Conditioner With Ginseng Extract – I loved this conditioner (and the matching shampoo) so much! I’m sad this line has been discontinued. 😢

5 Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel – I love this shower gel! Repurchase? Yes!

6 Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream – this shower gel is very good too, and I hope to buy it again soon.

7 Sanctuary Spa Heel Balm – a very good product. It’s too expensive, so I won’t buy it on its own, but I’d be delighted to find it in another Sanctuary Spa gift set.

8 Radox Mineral Therapy Muscle Soak Bath Salts – I really enjoyed these bath salts. I will buy them again!

9 Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot – these were good but not great. I might buy them again for half price, but I might not.

10 Westlab Cleansing Himalayan Salt – I like these a lot. Whilst these salts are unscented, they make my skin feel amazing. I enjoy using these on their own or mixed in with scented bath salts. I will buy these bath salts again, no doubt!

And this is everything for this month. Not a huge number of products, but finishing bath salts (those Westlab ones are 1kg each) frees up a lot of space under the sink! I expect a bit of skin care to finish next month, and at least 4 shower gels as well, so there should be more than 10 products in total.

May Beauty Awards

Hi there! Today’s post is my Monthly Favourites post. I’ve picked my top 3 from all the products I reviewed in May. And there are a few honourable mentions as well. Let’s take a look at the goodies!

3rd place – Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Shampoo & Conditioner With Ginseng Extract

These Harmony Hair Indulgence products with ginseng were lovely! I’m so sad that this line has been discontinued!

Runner-Up – Astor Rouge Couture 301 Nude Silk

OMG, this lipstick is just wow! I love this shade, it’s perfect for me.

WINNER – Mitomo Retinol Facial Essence Mask

This retinol face mask is the bomb! I love it! It’s one of the best sheet masks I’ve ever tried.

Onto the honourable mentions! I enjoyed Sanctuary Spa’s Salt Scrub and I’m still enjoying Sanctuary Spa’s Hand Cream and Heel Balm. Primark’s Pearl Mask and Global Beauty Care’s Collagen Mask were lovely. And Boots’ Glycolic Acid Mask was a surprise find which will now become a regular purchase.

Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading! x

Revisiting Old Favourites – Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Shampoo & Conditioner With Ginseng Extract

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Shampoo & Conditioner With Ginseng Extract combo. These are old favourites from a while ago, and I thought it’s time to revisit them!

Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Shampoo is amazing! It’s a clarifying shampoo that smells of ginger (Is ginseng that similar?) and soft musk. It’s amazing!

Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Conditioner is simply fabulous. It detangles my hair with ease. And I only need a bit of product. Wow! The conditoner has a clean and soft musk fragrance – I love it!

I’m enjoying these products very much! They make my hair look and feel amazing – and they smell like pretty fragrances (i.e. Narciso Rodriguez or J Lo Glow minus the bubblegum note). What’s not to love? Based on my experience, I’d recommend these hair products! Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Shampoo & Conditioner With Ginseng Extract are available as 250ml each for about £1 at discount stores. I found these at Poundland!
