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!

100% Cruelty-Free – M&S The Fragrance Collection Peony & Rhubarb Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about this M&S The Fragrance Collection Peony & Rhubarb Eau De Toilette with lemon and rhubarb (top note), cyclamen, pink peony and apple blossom (heart note), and white sandalwood, amber and guaiac wood (base note).

I’ve been using this fragrance on and off for a few weeks now, and I think it’s very nice! When I sprayed it on my skin for the first time, all I could smell was fresh apples! The opening is quite strong, and it’s very much like an apple version of D&G’s Light Blue! After a few hours, the fragrance smells more like apple pie – albeit much fresher and without any cinnamon.

I think this is a nice everyday fragrance. M&S The Fragrance Collection Peony & Rhubarb Eau De Toilette is available as 100ml for £12.50. I paid £10 (special offer). Another great thing is that this fragrance is certified cruelty-free! It carries the Leaping Bunny logo! 😍
