Empties – February 2020

Hi there! Since it’s the first working day of a new month, this post is about all the products I emptied last month. I used a few single use face masks (of which I didn’t keep the sachets – as usual). But if you want to read about the face masks I tried recently, click here. Alright, let’s look at the bigger tubs, tubes and bottles. 👀

1 My Little Pony Fruity Lip Balm – this was one of my all-time favourite lip balms. I’ll miss the heavenly honeydew flavour!

2 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – best foundation ever! I’m so sad this amazing oil-based makeup has been replaced by an oil-free matte foundation. 😭 I’m glad I stocked up on original Pan Stiks!

3 Olay Essentials Glow Perfectors BB Cream Light – a decent tinted moisturiser. The shade light is way too dark for me (it’s more like a sunkissed medium), but otherwise, it’s not a bad product. I won’t repurchase it, but I think I might have a backup!

4 Bvlgari Omnia Paraiba – a terribly cheap smelling fragrance. It was good enough for work for a few weeks. I got compliments from a few female co-workers who consider Impulse sprays to be fragrance. That tells you what this Bvlgari fragrance smells like! Yes, it’s perfectly OK to like Impulse sprays, but you wouldn’t pay £24 for a can, right? Anyhoo, I’m glad Omnia Paraiba is gone. And I won’t be blind-buying any more Bvlgari fragrances.

Herbal Essences Shimmering Colour Conditioner – this was the last of its kind! I’m sad to say goodbye to it. 😭

6 Radox Essentials Soft Care Bath Cream with Milk – one of my all-time favourite bath products. Too bad it was discontinued, but I have 1 more bottle in my stash!

7 Imperial Leather Japanese Spa – another lovely shower gel from Imperial Leather! And yes, I have another bottle in my stash!

8 Skin Assistant Collagen Morning Glow Serum (no photo) – I came close to finishing this facial oil when the lid broke. I didn’t want to bin the product, so I mixed the last few drops of oil with my current face mist – success! 💪 I might repurchase this facial oil once I’m a bit more on top of my facial oil and serum stash! I’m sorry there’s no photo. It was just too messy to even try to reattach the lid!

9 Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream – I love this stuff! Repurchase? Absolutely!

10 Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Conditioner – I liked this shampoo and conditioner combo, and I might buy it again.

11 Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Soothing Hydrating Lotion With Delicate Oat – this is a lovely body lotion that I will buy again, no doubt!

12 Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Eye Cream – this is a nice eye cream that’s a lot better than its price suggests. I’d recommend it, and I can definitely see myself buying it again!

13 Dove Purely Pampering Almond Cream With Hibiscus – this is a nice shower cream. I have another bottle.

14 Montagne Jeunesse Blemish Mud Face Mask – this one served me well. I might buy this face mask again in the future.

This is everything I finished last month. Not bad for a February! Sorry about the strange lighting in all the photos. I’m still figuring out how and where to take the best photos at our new place. And thanks for stopping by! 😘

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Blemish Mud

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Blemish Mud face mask which is aimed at people with problem skin.

This clay mask contains aloe vera and willow, and it works like pretty much every other clay mask out there. Cleanse your face, apply the mask, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then rinse it off. Job done!

How’s the mask? I think this is an effective clay mask. It’s deeply cleansing, but not drying. I like it a lot, and I will buy it again for sure!

Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Blemish Mud face mask is 100% cruelty-free. The mask is available as 10ml for about £1. I usually pick up face masks when there’s a 3 for 2 offer.
