Empties – September 2019

Hi there! It’s the 1st day of a new month (Hello October!), and this means that today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to in September. I have quite a few empties as well as a few old products that I binned.

1 Balance Active Formula Vitamin C Brightening Serum – this is a great serum, and I’d like to repurchase it!

2 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Dragon Fruit – I enjoyed this body cream a lot this summer. Unfortunately, this one’s a limited edition, and it really is gone. Otherwise I’d buy it again.

3 Make Up Gallery Top & Base Coat – 100% rubbish. This stuff will make your new mani chip within hours, and it will cause your nails to split – well, that’s what it did to me. I poured this stuff into the bin so I wouldn’t accidentally use it.

4 The Body Shop Polynesian Island Tiaré Shower Gel – of all the TBS products I’ve tried over the years, this is my favourite by far. Unfortunately, it’s been discontinued, and I’m sad to see it go.

5 Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia Body Wash – this is a nice shower gel. I’d like to repurchase it, but I think it’s been discontinued as well.

6 Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint Shower – one of my favourite shower gels this summer. Repurchase? Oh yes!

7 My Little Pony Coconut Lip Balm – I liked this lip balm (fortunately, the coconut flavour wasn’t very strong). I have a few more My Little Pony lip balms (different flavours), so I don’t need to stock up.

8 Essence XXXL Lipgloss 2 Coral Delight – I enjoyed this gloss very much. It’s been discontinued, but I wouldn’t repurchase it (only because I don’t want to buy the same product more than once – unless it’s an all-time favourite).

9 Bourjois 3D Effect Lipgloss 26 Cassis Tropical – this is really old! I won’t use it at this point, so I binned it.

10 UNE Sheer Lips Gloss S05 – another oldie I found by accident – bye bye!

11 Miss Sporty Perfect Colour Lipstick 122 Poem – another old lipstick that I won’t use anymore. On a positive note, back then I used the lipstick quite often… you know… before I “lost” it to the abyss that it my beauty stash…

12 Collection 2000 Volume Boost Lipstick 12 Cocoa – I remember that I didn’t use this lipstick in the first place because it was terrible. I think I have more of these (different shades). Anyhoo… good riddance!

13 Creightons Pink Grapefruit Mattifying Face Mask – this is a good face mask. I enjoyed using it, and I might buy it again.

14 Boots Extracts Olive Body Butter – I love this body butter, and it’s sad that Boots discontinued it. But I do have back-up!

15 Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Apple – I enjoyed using this peeling gel. I have a back-up (different fragrance).

16 TRESemmé Expert Keratin Smooth Conditioner – this conditioner isn’t terrible, but it’s just about average. For the first 10 washes I liked it, but it started to annoy me halfway through the bottle. I wouldn’t repurchase it.

17 Treacle Moon Marshmallow Hearts Shower & Bath Gel – this shower gel smells insanely yummy! I’ll buy it again for sure!

I also used a number of single-use face masks. And if you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here.

100% Vegan – Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Apple & Melon, Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 shower gels – Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Apple & Melon and Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint. I bought these shower gels (and a few others) a few weeks ago when they were on special.

Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Apple & Melon smells like ripe honeydew melon. I was hoping for a more refreshing fragrance, but all in all, this is a pleasant fruity shower gel. I also agree that the shower gel is mildly hydrating which is nice.

Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint feels mildly hydrating too. However, the mint and grapefruit fragrance is much better! This shower gel smells refreshing, herbal and green. I’m enjoying this one very much!

Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Apple & Melon and Original Source Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint are available as 250ml. I paid 95p each (special offer, Tesco). These shower gels are approved by The Vegan Society!
