Empties – June 2019

Hi there! It’s the 1st day of a new month, and this means that today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to last month. I used a number of single-use face masks. Whilst I didn’t keep the empty sachets, you can read about my latest face mask finds if you click here. Now let’s get to the tubs, tubes and bottles I emptied in June.

1 Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream – this is a great moisturiser. I enjoyed using it, and I’m looking forward to using it again in the not too distant future!

2 Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Night Cream – this night cream is just as amazing as the day cream, and I’ll be using this one again soon too!

3 J Lo Deseo Eau De Parfum – this is a large 100ml bottle, and it took me almost a decade to finish it. No, the fragrance isn’t bad. Quite the contrary! This is not a standard sugar water celebrity fragrance. Deseo is a gorgeous bamboo and patchouli fragrance. I’ve enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, it’s been discontinued quite some time ago, otherwise I’d buy it again.

4 Herbal Essences Silk N’ Shine Conditioner – my favourite conditioner ever. It’s been discontinued but I have plenty of back-up (shampoo AND conditioner). 😎

5 Imperial Leather Moisturising Night Blooming Jasmine & Vanilla – a nice shower gel, but nothing special. I might buy it again, but I don’t think it’s likely.

6 Palmolive Welcome to Japanese Garden – this is a gorgeous shower gel that I can see myself picking up again!

Superdrug B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – this is one of my holy grail products, and I have a few more in my stash.

8 Dove Go Fresh Pear & Aloe Vera Body Wash – this is a nice body wash that I can see myself buying again.

9 L’Oréal Skin Perfection Velvety Soft Toner – this is a great toner. Too bad it was discontinued. But I have 1 more in my stash!

10 Astor Lipliner Pencil 014 Bronze – one of my favourite lipliners. I have a few more of these in my stash and in my rota.

11 Revlon Nail Polish 902 Craving Coral – a nice enough shade. I wouldn’t repurchase it because I have around 20 very similar shades in my nail polish stash.

12 Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter – this is a great body butter. I won’t repurchase it because I’ve grown tired of the fragrance, but I would certainly recommend the product.

13 Superdrug Shea Butter & Bamboo Shower Gel – this is a very nice shower gel. I’ll repurchase it for sure.

14 Superdrug Simply Pure Leave On Water Mask – this is a fantastic product, and I will buy it again as well.

15 Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub – this was a cute little body scrub, and I might repurchase it if it pops up again for Christmas this year.

16 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Manuka Honey – one of the best summer moisturisers ever! Too bad it was a limited edition. But I think I have 1 more tub!

17 Classics Nail Polish Remover – this is my go to nail polish remover. £1 for 400ml. Awesome stuff!

I’ve done well again with my empties in June. I’m always happy to finish big bottles as well as small items like lipliners. I hope I’ll be able to say goodbye to 12+ items in July too!

One more thing… HAPPY CANADA DAY to all my Canadian blogging buddies!

Imperial Leather Polynesian Spa Passion Flower & Almond Milk Spa Escape Shower Cream, Imperial Leather Moisturising Night Blooming Jasmine & Vanilla Infusions Shower Cream

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 shower creams which I started to use a few weeks ago – Imperial Leather Polynesian Spa with Passion Flower & Almond Milk and Imperial Leather Moisturising Night Blooming Jasmine & Vanilla.

Imperial Leather Polynesian Spa with Passion Flower & Almond Milk is a nice enough shower cream. It feels mildly hydrating. The fragrance is best described as a pink floral fragrance with an almond core. I don’t care for the fragrance. It’s not terrible, but it’s incredibly unremarkable.

Imperial Leather Moisturising Night Blooming Jasmine & Vanilla feels just as hydrating as the Polynesian Spa shower cream. This fragrance is a bit nicer. However, I’d still describe it as an unspectacular jasmine fragrance with a hint of vanilla.

Imperial Leather Polynesian Spa with Passion Flower & Almond Milk and Imperial Leather Moisturising Night Blooming Jasmine & Vanilla are available as 250ml and 400ml. I paid 90p each for the 400ml bottles.
