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

I Love… Juicy Watermelon Revitalizing Shower Gel & Palmolive Naturals Pomegranate Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels – I Love… Juicy Watermelon Revitalizing Shower Gel and Palmolive Naturals Pomegranate Shower Gel. These are super big bottles. I’m trying not to buy too many mega sizes and back-ups anymore, but these shower gels looked so tempting 😍 that I couldn’t resist. Onto the reviews!

I Love… Juicy Watermelon Revitalizing Shower Gel is nice. It feels cleansing (definitely suitable for your post-gym shower), but it’s not drying at all – this is great! The watermelon fragrance is not bad, but I can see it getting old rather quickly. I’ll continue to use this shower gel in the shower. But I think I’ll end up squeezing a lot of it into a hand wash dispenser.

Palmolive Naturals Pomegranate Shower Gel with its vegan and 96% bio-degradable formula is lovely. It smells of juicy pomegranate seeds with a touch of lemon juice. It’s fruity and refreshing but not overly sweet. This shower gel is gentle on the skin too, so what’s not to like?

I Love… Juicy Watermelon Revitalizing Shower Gel is available as 750ml. I paid £1.99 at B&M Bargains. Palmolive Naturals Pomegranate Shower Gel is available as 500ml. I paid £1.49 at Savers.
