Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in October. I used a few single-use face masks, and you can click here if you’d like to read my latest face mask reviews. Now let’s look at the big bottles…
1 Imperial Leather Grapefruit & Pomegranate Shower Cream – I liked this one a lot! It’s been discontinued, and I believe this was the last one I had in my stash. 😢
2 Radox “Donut Mind If I Do” Vanilla Bean & White Chocolate Scent Shower Gel – very nice! Definitely repurchase-worthy!
3 Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Conditioner – a holy grail product! I have plenty of backup (shampoos AND conditioners!) 😁
4 Gosh Cracked Nail Lacquer 04 Gold – didn’t like it. Wouldn’t give it a second look.
5 Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Magenta Moves – I loved this polish so much! I think I have another bottle. Fingers crossed!
6 Primark PS… 2 In 1 Base & Top Coat – a decent clear polish. I should have 1 more bottle in my stash.
7 Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Regenerating Night Cream – I love this night cream! I have another one in my stash.
8 Superdrug Anti-Ageing Hand Cream – I used this hand cream as a foot cream, and it did a good job. But I won’t buy it again.
9 Garnier Body Tonic Firming Hydrating Lotion – a very nice body lotion! Repurchase-worthy, no doubt!
10 Original Source Sweet Apple & Vanilla Milk Moisturising Shower Milk – a really nice shower cream. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued, otherwise I’d buy it again.
11 Olay Essentials Refreshing Face Wash – a great face wash! I believe this product has been repackaged and is now called “Olay Cleanse Foaming Cleanser Jelly”, although I’m not 100% sure if it’s the exact same formula.
12 Asda Sleep & Relax Bath Soak – I love this bath soak! I already bought a few back-up bottles!
13 Classics Nail Polish Remover – they shrunk the bottle from 400ml to 250ml, but the price remained the same. Rather greedy from the manufacturer, but this will remain my go to nail polish remover.
I think I did more than alright with my empties in October. Hopefully November will be just as good. Fingers crossed!

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in August. I used quite a few single-use face masks. You can read about my latest face mask finds here. Now let’s get to the big bottles and tubes!
1 Thierry Mugler Alien Flora Futura – such a stunning fragrance. I love it! It’s a limited edition from 2018, but it can still be found online. I might buy another bottle.
2 Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum – this is a lovely serum. This is the last tube of the “old” formula. But the current version is awesome too, so I will repurchase that.
3 Superdrug B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – my go-to face mist. I have plenty of back-up!
4 Lucy B. Royal Water Lotus & Vanilla Musk – another amazing fragrance. I would love to buy it again if I find it somewhere (without having to pay for international shipping plus tax)
5 Imperial Leather Grapefruit & Pomegranate – one of my old favourites. It’s been discontinued, but I have 1 more bottle in my stash.
6 Palmolive Santorini Breeze – this is a very nice shower gel. Those big 500ml are quite a commitment, but I might buy this one again.
7 Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Conditoner – I like this conditoner (and the matching shampoo) a lot. This collection has been discontinued (and replaced with a terrible new line), but I have another shampoo and conditoner combo as a back-up!
8 + 9 Essence Eyeliners Boogie Nights & Forever Green – I used to like these colours, but I won’t be using these anymore, so bye-bye!
10 Boots Extracts Luxurious Coconut Body Lotion (travel size) – a decent body lotion. I got this as part of a gift set, otherwise I wouldn’t have bought a coconut-scented product. I may have a few more of these…
11 Olay 2 in 1 Cleanser & Toner – such a lovely toner. I have a back-up bottle!
12 Maybelline Color Elixir By Colorsensational 135 Raspberry Rhapsody – I enjoyed this gloss very much, and I’m glad that I have another one in my stash!
13 Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go – this is one of the polishes I used as a stamping polish. I have no doubt that I have a few back-up bottles in my stash.
This is everything I emptied in August. I’ve done better than last month, and I’m happy with this. 🙂 Which products have you finished recently? Anything worth repurchasing? Feel free to let me know in the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

Hi there! Some of you know that I’m a serious toiletries hoarder. However, I’m doing my best to use up as much ‘old stock’ as possible. And that’s why today’s post is about Imperial Leather Tempting Shower Creme with Guava and Lotus Flower, Bewitching Shower Creme with Blackberry Blossom and Wild Fig and Revitalising Grapefruit & Pomegranate Shower Cream. Now that’s a lot of bold print, so let’s get started with the actual review.
Guava & Lotus Flower is not my favourite because the scent is a tad too marine and too masculine for my taste. It’s not bad, it’s just that the fragrance doesn’t tickle my fancy. However, this shower cream feels surprisingly moisturising and it is very gentle to the skin.
Blackberry Blossom & Wild Fig smells quite strongly of figs. The warm and sweet fragrance is not for everybody (my husband hates it), but I think Imperial Leather managed to create a very authentic fig scent. This shower cream is just as moisturising as the guava & lotus flower one, but it gets an extra star for being pretty. Why is that? This shower cream contains micro shimmer – bewitching indeed!
Grapefruit & Pomegranate is a nice one. 🙂 I love grapefruits and blood oranges, so I had to have this shower gel. The scent is very realistic and I like it. However, I would have loved it if Imperial Leather had left out the pomegranate.
I believe that these three shower creams have been discontinued. The guava & lotus flower and grapefruit & pomegranate shower creams were briefly available in Imperial Leather’s new slim bottles, but I haven’t seen them in a while. The blackberry blossom & wild fig fragrance is now available as Foamburst.
