Empties – August 2022

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished last month. I don’t feel like doing a big intro, so here they are:

1 Salvador Dali Dalissime Eau De Toilette – one of my all-time favourite fragrances. I have another bottle in my stash. 😍

2 Garnier Pure Active Intensive Charcoal Scrub – another Garnier product I won’t repurchase. This scrub is too basic.

3 Boots Glow Banana Toner – not the best toner for me. I won’t buy it again.

4 The Body Shop Neroli Jasmin Body Lotion – one of the best body lotions ever. EVER. Unfortunately, this amazing fragrance has been discontinued. But I have 1 more body lotion, 2 shower gels and 1 eau de toilette with the beautiful Neroli Jasmin fragrance left in my stash! 😍

5 Garnier Skin Active Soothing Botanical Cleansing Milk With Rose Water – this cleanser is OK but not great. I wouldn’t buy it again.

6 Olay Complete Lightweight Day Fluid – an all-time favourite beauty staple. I would always be more than happy to buy this amazing moisturiser again.

7 Palmolive Aroma Therapy Absolute Relax – one of my all-time favourites! I have a few more of these!

8 Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel – a nice shower gel. A limited edition, unfortunately.

9 Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath And Shower Gel – my husband loves this shower and bath gel just as much as I do. In fact, he’s been using most of it. A definite repurchase.

9 Palmolive Hidden Heaven Shower Gel – I love this shower gel! A definite repurchase!

10 Pantene Pro-V Miracles Silky & Glowing Biotin & Hydrolised Silk Protein Conditioner – not the best conditioner for my hair type. This shampoo and conditioner combo gave me crunchy hair. Its tagline could be “A crunch fest with every wash.” Repurchase? Absolutely not!

12 Morrisons Revive Pink Grapefruit & Basil Extracts Shower Gel – this shower gel is too basic. I won’t buy it again.

I did well again in August. Hopefully I can keep it up over the next few months!

Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Age-Defying Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Age-Defying Cream. This cream promises to firm the skin for a lifted look, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, to hydrate the skin, to improve skin elasticity, to regenerate the skin’s surface cells, and to deliver anti-aging ingredients 10 layers deep into skin’s surface. Simply use it the same way you’d use any other face cream.

I’ve been using this face cream as a night cream for almost 2 months now, and I love it! The first thing I noticed about this face cream is that, immediately after application, it makes my skin tone look more even. I don’t know how this is possible, but I’m not questioning the magic! I’ve used this face cream both on its own and after a serum, and it delivers the exact same result.

I’m very happy with the hydration I’m getting from this face cream. It’s perfect. I also think that my skin texture looks nicer and more even. This face cream is simply amazing, and I love it!

If you’re interested, Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Age-Defying Cream has been renamed (and possibly reformulated) and is now available as 50ml for about £30. I paid £12 (TK Maxx).

Empties – March 2022

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the stuff I finished in March. Let’s take a look at all the products I said goodbye to. 🙂

1 Jil Sander Simply Elixir Rich Body Cream – a very nice body cream. This one was part of a gift set. I don’t think I’d buy a full-size body lotion, but if I can get my hands on another gift set for a decent price, I’d be happy to have it! By the way, if you’re looking for a lady’s version of Dior Fahrenheit, you might want to check out this fragrance!

2 Sanctuary Spa Hand Cream – just lovely! I have a few more tubes in my stash.

3 Patisserie De Bain Pineapple Paradise Hand Cream – actually a really good hand cream. Repurchase-worthy.

4 Olay Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub – a decent face scrub. I have at least one more tube in my stash.

5 Carex Nourishing Shower Cream – a nice shower cream. Repurchase-worthy!

6 Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Fragrance-Free Non-Greasy Lotion – a really good body lotion for very dry skin. I might buy it again.

7 Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Apricot – what a lovely peeling gel! I have another one (different scent) in my stash

8 Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash – I liked this shower gel, and I have one more bottle in my stash.

9 Palmolive Naturals Irresistible Softness Black Orchid & Moisturising Milk Shower Milk – a wonderful shower gel. Unfortunately it has been discontinued. I think I have another bottle though!

10 Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Revitalising Jam Face Mask – this is a decent scrub mask. I would buy it again!

11 Oriflame M by Marcel Marongiu – what a lovely, unique fragrance! Too bad it was a limited edition from eons ago…

12 Pantene Pro-V Miracles Grow Strong Biotin + Bamboo Shampoo & Conditioner – such a nice surprise! I will buy this conditioner (and the matching shampoo) again. My husband is enjoying the leftover shampoo too (once I finish a conditioner, I pass the matching leftover shampoo on to my husband).

13 Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Wash – a lovely shower gel. Unfortunately discontinued.

I’m glad I finished a few more shower gels which were in various states of empty. I also used a bunch of single use face masks. I think I did well again in March! I hope April will be good too. I know I’ll finish 2 more products this weekend.

Revisiting Old Favourites – Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Eye Renewal Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Eye Renewal Gel. This product promises to reduce fine line and wrinkles and to help fight puffiness and dark circles. Use the eye gel twice a day, and expect results within 21 days – that’s what it says on the box. I haven’t used this eye gel for quite some time, but I was very happy when I found a few of these in my stash!

I’ve been using this eye cream for a few months now, and I love it just as much as I used to love it back then. This eye gel is at least in my all-time Top 3 eye products – it maybe even be the best eye product I’ve ever used. It kills lines and dark circles, and it makes me look well-rested even if I slept less than 4 hours. A true 11 stars product!

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Eye Renewal Gel has been discontinued and replaced with another eye gel with a very similar ingredients list – Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel. However, the original eye gel can still be found online for a decent price!

Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Regenerating Night Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Regenerating Night Cream which I’ve been using since early August. This night cream promises…to renew the skin’s youthful look, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and to exfoliate, smooth and brighten the skin. It further claims that “over time, skin will appear revitalised and younger with reduced visible signs of fatigue.”

First thing, this night cream has been repackaged (probably why I found it at B&M Bargains in the first place). However, I checked the ingredients, and the formula is still the exact same one – with niacinamide being the 4th 😍 ingredient.

Now onto the product! After almost 2 months of using this night cream, there’s no doubt that I’m blown away. The cream feels silky, and it makes my skin feel silky. It provides the perfect amount of hydration regardless of how much sleep I get – it doesn’t make my skin feel dry or greasy at any point. That’s how I know that my skin loves it!

What else? My skin has gotten brighter this summer – I believe the majority of the credit actually goes to another product, but this beautiful night cream makes me wake up to bright and refreshed looking skin, so there’s no doubt it’s a major contributor to my skin’s current great look and feel.

Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Regenerating Night Cream is available as 50ml. It’s usually around £30, but Tesco has it for half price with Tesco Clubcard (not sure for how long though). I paid a ridiculous £8 for it (so I bought 2 of these night creams when I found them at B&M Bargains).

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Face Wash With Exfoliating Particles

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Olay Anti-Wrinkle Face Wash With Exfoliating Particles.

This face wash is aimed at women who are 40+, and it promises to remove make-up and impurities, to improve skin texture, to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, and to promote the natural skin cell renewal process for younger looking skin.

I’ve been using this face wash for a few weeks now, and I like it.

This is a cream wash with exfoliatig particles. The exfoliating effect isn’t very strong, but that’s OK (and expected) since it’s supposed to be used daily.

I use this face wash every morning in the shower, and I’m happy to report that it’s also gentle, creamy and refreshing.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend it! If you’re interested, Olay Anti-Wrinkle Face Wash With Exfoliating Particles. is available as 150ml for £4.19. I paid £2.09 (special offer at Boots which was still on last time I checked on 20 June).

Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Cream Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Cream Wash. This is an exfoliating cream wash which claims to have advanced anti-ageing benefits, and it can be used once or twice daily.

I’ve been using this face wash for a few weeks now, and I think it’s really nice! It exfoliates my skin beautifully, but it feels gentle at the same time. Great stuff! It also reminds me very much of the old Olay Total Effects Cream Wash (unfortunately discontinued).

Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Cream Wash has been renamed (likely reformulated as well); it’s now called Olay Regenerist Skin Perfecting Cleanser. It’s available as 150ml, and I paid £3 (special offer, usually it’s about £6).
