Empties – November 2020

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to in November. Read on if you’d like to know which products I finished last month.

1 M&S The Fragrance Collection Peony & Rhubarb Eau De Toilette – This is a lovely fragrance! It’s not an all-time favourite, but it’s a bright and uplighting apple pie fragrance. I can see myself buying another bottle in the future!

2 Nivea Love Fun Times Pink Grapefruit Caring Shower Gel – didn’t care for it. Glad it’s gone. Bye!

3 Montagne Jeunesse Green Tea Peel-Off – this was an OK mask. Nothing special though, so I won’t buy it again.

4 Herbal Essences Bio Renew Passion Flower & Rice Milk Conditioner – this is a decent conditioner, but I don’t think that I’ll buy it (or the matching shampoo) again. These products aren’t really suited to my hair type.

5 Original Source Black Cherry & Nettle Shower – this is a nice shower gel. This fragrance has been discontinued, and I don’t think that I have any more of these in my stash.

6 Original Source Skin Quench Moisturising Shower With Cherry & Jojoba Oil – as above – a nice shower gel, but discontinued, and (most likely) no back up.

I haven’t managed to finish many products in November, but December will be better (3 products finished already, and there will be 4 more over the next 2 days). Thanks for stopping by, lovelies!

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Passion Flower & Rice Milk Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about the hair care products I’m using at the moment – Herbal Essences Bio Renew Passion Flower & Rice Milk Shampoo & Conditioner with botanical ingredients from Kew Gardens in Surrey! I’ve been using these products for about 3 weeks now, and here’s what I think.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Passion Flower & Rice Milk Shampoo is a creamy white shampoo. It smells of passion flowers, and it’s gentle. I think it would be good for dry hair types.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Passion Flower & Rice Milk Conditioner detangles my hair with ease. Just like the shampoo, this conditioner would be perfect for dry hair types, and it should also be ideal for stand-offish hair (mine’s like that more often that I’d care to admit).

However, I’ve noticed that these products make my hair go greasy much quicker than usual. I wash my hair daily, so this shouldn’t happen. What I’m doing now is… use these Herbal Essences products for 3 days on and 1 day off. On the “off” day I use Alberto Balsam hair products which suck the grease (or rather product residue) right out of my hair and scalp!

All in all, I think Herbal Essences Bio Renew Passion Flower & Rice Milk Shampoo & Conditioner are nice products for the right hair type or hair care routine. I can definitely see myself buying these products again. If you’re interested, these hair products are available as 400ml for about £6, but I paid £2.97 each (half price offer).
