Empties – August 2020

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!

August Beauty Awards

Hi there! Today’s post is about the products I loved the most in August. As always, I’ve chosen my TOP 3 from all the products I’ve reviewed this past month. And there are a few honourable mentions too. But let’s start with the TOP 3!

3rd place – L’Oréal Color Riche 231 Sepia / Silk

Whilst this lipstick isn’t 100% what I wanted, I’m very happy with it, and I do enjoy using it!

Runner-Up – Spascriptions Brightening Spa Treatment Mask With Vitamin C & Glycolic Acid
WINNER – Lucy B. Royal Water Lotus & Vanilla Musk Eau De Parfum

Spascriptions did an amazing job with this brightening face mask. I love it!
And Lucy B.’s Royal Water Lotus & Vanilla Musk fragrance is something special!

Onto the honourable mentions! I’m a big fan of Westlab’s Cleansing Himalayan Salt. And there were numerous face masks that I liked a lot – too many to mention. Some of those are Skin Treats’ Kiwi Refreshing Sheet Mask, Montagne Jeunesse’s Melon Madness Peel Off, Primark’s PS… Pink Clay Detoxify & Refine Pore Refining Facial Mask and others.

Lucy B. Royal Water Lotus & Vanilla Musk Eau De Parfum

Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance that I’ve been wearing on and off for a few months now – Lucy B. Royal Water Lotus & Vanilla Musk EdP.

On Lucy B.’s website, the fragrance is described as a dreamy and tender oriental fragrance with lotus and watery musk (top note), musky rose petals (heart note), and amber and precious woods (base note).

I’m not a big fan of strong lotus fragrances, so I’m happy to report that the lotus note in this fragrance is very short-lived.

This fragrance is all about clean musk – it’s even cleaner than J Lo’s original Glow – and it has watery, airy and candied hues. It’s really beautiful!

Lucy B. Royal Water Lotus & Vanilla Musk EdP is available as 60ml. I paid £9.99 at TK Maxx. A total bargain! 🥰
