Empties – October 2016

Hi there! Today’s post is about the products I emptied last month. As always, I’ve enjoyed a few face masks. And now, let’s see how many empty bottles, tubs and tubes I’ve thrown out last month.

1 L’Oréal Extraordinary Clay Re-Balancing Conditioner – I liked this conditioner. It detangled my hair nicely, and it made my hair feel soft and smooth. I will probably buy it again. In case you’re wondering what happened to the shampoo… my husband is using it up because every time I empty a conditioner, I pass the matching shampoo on to my husband.

2 Radox Eastern Spirit Shower Gel – a nice shower gel. I like the feminine and exotic fragrance. I have another bottle.

3 Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Soothing Gel Cream – a very nice, non-sticky gel-cream. Unfortunately I can’t repurchase the product because it’s been discontinued.

4 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Eye Cream – I didn’t find this eye cream to be brightening. However, it’s still a decent eye cream that moisturises nicely and sits well under make-up. I might buy it again.

5 Boots Extracts Mango Body Scrub – a nice body scrub. I prefer grittier body scrubs, so this one isn’t my favourite. But the mango fragrance is 100% delicious. I might buy it again.

6 Superdrug Simply Pure Smoothing Face Scrub – a very decent face scrub for dry or sensitive skin. The best thing is that this scrub doesn’t contain crushed walnut shells or apricot stones, so it won’t harm your skin! I’ll repurchase this one as soo as there’s another half price or BOGOF offer.

7 NYC Expert Last Nail Polish 138 Classy Glassy – another great clear polish from NYC. I have several back-ups, but I’ll continue to buy these anyway.

8 Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto – my favourite black nail polish. It stamps perfectly, and when I use it to actually paint my nails, it never stains. I have several backup bottles. 🙂

9 Yves Rocher Apple Star Anise Refreshing Fragrance Mist – I really liked this body mist. The apple fragrance is very pleasant and authentic. Take note, Donna Karan, this is what an apple fragrance is supposed to smell like. Unfortunately this one was a limited edition fragrance and I can’t buy it again.

10 Olay Essentials Cleansing Milk – I love this cleansing milk. It’s gentle, but it’s effetive. I have a back-up bottle (I might have more than one…) and I’ll continue to buy this product. It’s a beauty staple.

11 Rossmann Rival De Loop Clean & Care Refreshing Toner With Ginkgo & Cucumber – this is a very nice toner. I bought it in Germany ages ago. I have another bottle somewhere around the house. If I go to Germany again at some point, I will definitely buy this toner again.

12 Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage – I love this shower gel! I’ll buy it again, no doubt! In case you’re looking for it, it’s been repackaged and its new name is ‘Feel The Massage’. My husband used this shower gel a few times too, so this one is a shared empty.

13 I Love… Sugared Cranberries (100ml travel size) – this one is quite nice. If this shower gel becomes part of I Love…’s permanent collection, I’ll buy it again for sure.

14 I Love… Lemons & Limes (100ml travel size) – it’s a decent shower gel, but nothing special. I wouldn’t buy the full-size product.

15 Palmolive Thermal Spa Ocean Vitality – another decent shower gel from Palmolive. I think this one has been discontinued, but if I come across it again, I’ll definitely repurchase it. This is another shared empty.

This is it for October. I’m happy with what I’ve emptied. I’m glad I finished another clear nail polish – but I still have at least 20+ half-full clear polishes. But I’m getting on top of them! 🙂 And I’ve emptied a few more shower gels. Yay! But let me tell you a secret – I’ve bought a lot of stuff over the past few weeks. I’ll show you my loot tomorrow.

Palmolive Thermal Spa Shower Mineral Massage, Ocean Vitality

Hi there! Today’s post is about two Palmolive shower gels I picked up at my local Family Bargains store (R.I.P. Family Bargains) before it closed (and reopened as a Poundland store). Now meet Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage with Dead Sea Salt and Aloe Vera, and Palmolive Thermal Spa Ocean Vitality with Blue Algae and Marine Minerals.
Palmolive Thermal Spa
Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage with Dead Sea Salt and Aloe Vera is a gentle, yet effective, exfoliating shower gel that’s perfect for every day. I love the salty marine fragrance which goes well with the colour and the spa & sea salt theme. Very nice, refreshing, and definitely suitable for men as well! I think this shower gel has been repackaged and it’s now called “Feel The Massage“.

Palmolive Thermal Spa Ocean Vitality with Blue Algae and Marine Minerals is another lovely shower gel. Its fragrance falls into the ‘marine’ category as well. However, this one isn’t salty at all. It’s mild and it has a relaxing feel to it – the ocean theme really fits! Another good thing about this shower gel is that it’s not drying at all.

I really like these two shower gels. Mineral Massage wakes me up in the morning, while Ocean Vitality calms me down at night. Yes, I would definitely recommend these two shower gels. So if you come across them, buy them! These shower gels are 250ml, and I paid 99p each.
