Empties – July 2018

Hi there! It’s the 1st of August, so it’s time for my monthly empties post. Before I show you the big bottles and tubes I emptied, let me add that I also used a number of single use face masks – but I didn’t keep the sachets. I never do! Now, onto the big empties.

1 Kenzo Madly Kenzo Eau De Toilette – this is a lovely fragrance! It’s fresh, youthful and happy. Great stuff, Kenzo!

2 NSPA Luscious Fresh Clementine Fragrance Body Mist – I enjoyed this body mist quite a bit. I think the fragrance is fresh and tangy, and the body mist felt really cool on the skin. I’d like to buy it again, but NSPA replaced the clementine products with a different fragrance.

3 Sukin Purifying Shampoo – this was a nice enough shampoo. I don’t think it was very purifying, but if you don’t get your head & hair dirty, this is alright for daily use. I won’t buy it again.

4 Aussie Colour Mate Conditioner – this is a below average conditioner, and I wouldn’t buy it again.

5 Boots Luscious Vanilla Body Spray – this is a nice vanilla fragrance. I have 2 back-up bottles, I think.

6 Imperial Leather Foamy Banana Shower Cream – I love it! I have another bottle in my stash!

7 Sukin Oil Balancing Clarifying Facial Tonic – this is a nice toner. It’s really powerful, so I couldn’t use it every day, but I can see myself picking it up again!

8 NSPA Lemon Shower & Bath Gel – this is a very refreshing shower gel. My husband used it too, so this one’s a shared empty. I’m happy to repurchase this shower gel!

9 Tesco Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Facial Scrub – this was nice while it lasted, but I wouldn’t buy it again. There are much better face scrubs out there.

10 Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree Shower Gel – this is a nice shower gel. It’s one of my summer staples. I have a few more bottles in my stash, and I think there might be another empty bottle next month! By the way, this is a shared empty because my husband used it too.

11 Daily Defense Moisturizing Argan Oil Body Wash – this is a very nice shower cream. I’ve been using it on and off since November! I wouldn’t repurchase this huge 946ml bottle, but I would buy a normal size.

12 L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist 60 Second Saviour – this is a lovely deep conditioner. I’d love to buy it again, but I can’t find it anywhere. 😦

This is what I emptied in July. Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of them? What have you emptied this month? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Kenzo Madly Kenzo Eau De Toilette

upload-2Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance that’s been sitting in my stash for quite some time – it’s Madly Kenzo Eau De Toilette by Kenzo.

I bought this fragrance just after it was launched which, I think, was some time in 2011. Back then I used this fragrance for a few days (a few weeks tops) before I moved on to something else (and forgot about it).

If you’re wondering how I could possibly remember that… I don’t! But I’ve known myself for a long time and I know my product habits. 😀

Now onto the fragrance! Madly Kenzo EdT contains the following fragrant notes: pear and litchi (top notes), jasmine and heliotrope (heart notes), and musk and cedarwood (base notes).

Whilst these notes don’t sound too exciting, I think Madly Kenzo is actually quite nice. It’s sweet but fresh, fruity and floral, youthful and happy (!), and it has this nude thing going on (like J Lo Glow or Narciso Rodriguez EdT, even though Madly Kenzo EdT is much lighter and considerably less dense).

I have to say that I’m enjoying this fragrance very much. I’ve rediscovered it a few weeks ago and since then I’ve been wearing it at least 2 to 3 times a week. At the moment, Madly Kenzo EdT is one of my favourite day and office fragrances.

I have a 30ml bottle (I think I’ve got about 20ml left in the bottle), but Madly Kenzo EdT is also available as 50ml and 80ml. How much is it? I’ve done a quick online search and I found the small 30ml bottle ‘on sale’ (yeah, right) for over £40. But I also found the big 80ml bottle for just under £26. So if you’d like to buy this fragrance, don’t forget to compare prices online first. 🙂
