Empties – October 2020

Hi there! Today’s the first working day in November, so this post is about all the products I emptied in October. Read on if you’re wondering which products I managed to finish last month.

1 Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Day Hand Cream – a lovely hand cream! I’d be happy to have it again as part of a gift set, but it’s quite expensive, so I won’t buy it on its own.

2 Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Lip Care – this is the best lip care product I’ve ever tried. Repurchase? Yes!

3 Boots Botanics Hydrating Serum Capsules – I loved these! I have one bottle left in my stash (and I’ll use those capsules soon). Unfortunately, these were discontinued. Otherwise, I’d buy them again and again…

4 Boots No. 7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil – one of the best facial oils I’ve tried so far. I will repurchase this one too, no doubt!

5 Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Spray – I love this fragrance! It’s sad that Boots discontinued the entire Extracts line, so unfortunately, I can’t buy this one again.

6 Palmolive Italian Gardens Shower Gel – this was an amazing shower gel! Too bad it was a limited edition…

7 Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Non-Greasy Lotion – this is a wonderful body lotion. Repurchase? Yes!

8 Gliss Liquid Silk Conditioner – this is a nice conditioner. I will buy it (and the matching shampoo) again, no doubt!

9 Palmolive Naturals Pomegranate Shower Gel – I liked this shower gel quite a bit. I think I’ll buy it again.

10 Original Source Mango & Macadamia Shower – this is a lovely shower gel. Too bad that it’s no longer available. I have one more bottle though!

11 Beauty UK White Nail Polish – an old favourite! Too bad it’s no longer available!

12 Garnier Skin Active Refreshing Botanical Toner With Aloe Extract – not my favourite. I won’t repurchase it.

13 Superdrug B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – one of holy grail products! I have plenty of back-up!

14 Primark PS 2 in 1 Base & Top Coat – an OK clear polish. Dries a bit too slowly for my liking. I have 1 more bottle.

15 Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Bath Cream (x2) – I love this bath cream! Unfortunately, this product has been discotinued. I have one more bottle in my stash though.

16 Kallos Multivitamin Energising Hair Mask – a very good hair mask! But it was a 1000ml which took me ages to finish. I won’t ever buy such a big bottle of any kind of product again!

I’m happy with what I finished. I hope I can keep this up until at least the end of the year. Thanks for stopping by! x

Empties – October 2019

Hi there! It’s a new day and a new month (Hello November!) – so today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to in October. As always, I used a few single-use face mask, but I didn’t keep the empty sachets. If you’re interested in my latest face mask finds, click here. Now, let’s focus on the bigger bottles and tubs. 🙂

1 Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Night Cream – I had to bin this product because it caused me physical harm. 😲

2 Skin Care Chemist Macadamia Beauty Oil – this is a lovely oil. Not too heavy, suitable for warmer weather as well. I’d like to repurchase it, but I’d like to try other oils from this brand first.

3 Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Perfume Roll-On – this is a nice fragrance, and I think this is already the 2nd blood orange roll-on I’ve emptied, but I won’t buy it again.

4 Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream – a lovely eye cream. I won’t pay full price for it (£18), but if it’s part of a reduced price gift set (I’m looking forward to the post-Christmas half price) sale, I’d be happy to have it again.

5 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. Priced at £1 for 400ml it’s a steal!

6 Body-X Endless Weekend Shower Gel – my husband and I enjoyed this shower gel, so this is a shared empty. I’d like to repurchase it!

7 Treacle Moon One Ginger Morning Shower & Bath Gel – another shower gel my husband and I enjoyed, and yes, this one’s another shared empty. I wouldn’t mind picking it up again next summer.

8 Manhattan Nail Whitener – not bad, but not great. I’d pick it up again for £1, but I wouldn’t spend more than that.

9 Superdrug B. Soft Multi Acid Retexturising Pads – these pads are great, but I won’t buy them again because the ones from Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant range are a tad better.

10 Superdrug Sweet Snuggles Lip Balm – a nice vanilla lip balm. I have a few more of these.

11 Essence Eyeliner Pencil 01 Black – my go-to eyeliner. I have a few more of these.

12 The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig Shower Gel – this is a very nice shower gel. I’d buy it again but TBS discontinued it!

13 Herbal Essences Classics Silk N’ Shine Conditioner – this is the best conditioner EVER. It’s been discontinued but I’ve got plenty of backup!

14 Garnier Skin Active Nourishing Botanical Toner With Honey Flower – this is a below average toner, and I won’t repurchase it.

I thought October would be terrible for empties, but with a bit of focus and dedication I managed to empty 7 products over the last 7 days. Success! 💪 Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try them? What have you emptied recently? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!

Empties – October 2018

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied last month. As always, I used a number of single use face masks. Whilst I don’t keep the empty sachets, you can read about my latest face mask finds here. Onto the big empties!

1 Olay Anti-Wrinkle 2 in 1 Instant Hydration + Radiant Glow – this is a lovely moisturiser. I have a back-up bottle!

2 Essence Black Eyeliner Pencil – my favourite eyeliner pencil! I have several more in my stash and in my rota!

3 Sukin Super Greens Facial Recovery Serum – another great product from Sukin. I can definitely see myself buying this serum again.

4 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Flycolic Tonic – this is one of my new holy grail products!

Nivea Waterlily & Oil Shower Gel – this is a lovely shower gel. My husband used it too, so this is a shared empty. I hope I’ll find it again somewhere.

6 Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Conditioner – the best conditioner ever. It’s been discontinued, but I have an impressive number of back-up bottles (shampoo and conditioner).

7 The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion – I enjoyed using this body lotion while it lasted, but I won’t buy it again.

8 The Crème Shop Detoxing & Renewing Overnight Gel Mask With Charcoal – whilst I liked using this product, I don’t think I’ll buy it again. When the seasons changed, I noticed that I would need a more hydrating product for 9 months of the year.

9 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – this is my holy grail foundation!

10 My Little Pony Strawberry Lip Balm – a nice lip balm. It’s very hydrating, and it has a fruity taste. I have a few more My Little Pony branded lip balms.

11 Superdrug Lip Balm – a nice vanilla-flavoured lip balm. I have a few more of these.

12 Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel With Grape – this is a truly awesome product. I have 3 more of these with different fragrances (apple, apricot, rice bran).

13 My Little Pony Shower Gel – a nice shower gel. The melon fragrance is lovely. I might repurchase it at some point.

14 Radox Scent Touch Feel Lively Body Wash – I don’t like the fragrance of this one very much. I managed to use it up but I won’t buy it again.

15 Superdrug Cucumber Peel-Off Mask – this is a nice face mask. I enjoyed using it. I have a back-up!

16 Anna Sui Flight Of Fancy – this is a lovely fragrance. I can definitely see myself picking it up again!

I think I’ve done well again this month. I’m happy I managed to finish a lot of skin care products. What did you empty last month? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂
