Empties – September 2018

Hi there! September is over, so it’s time for my September Empties post. Read on if you’d like to know which products I said goodbye to last month. 🙂

1 Nivea Powerfruit Fresh Shower Gel – I didn’t love this shower gel, and I won’t buy it again.

2 Classics Nail Polish Remover – I love this nail polish remover. It does its job, it doesn’t smell too bad, and it’s £1 for 400ml. I have a few back-up bottles.

3 Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Conditioner – this is a great conditioner. I will buy it (+ the matching shampoo) again.

4 Essence Black Eyeliner Pencil (x2) – I love Essence’s eyeliner pencils. They’re £1 each, and they’re great. I have no complaints about them. I have several more in my stash (and rota).

5 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream – this is a great night cream. I will buy it again.

6 Superdrug Flutter Lip Balm – I loved this balm. I think I have 1 or 2 more of these in my stash.

7 Anna Sui Eau De Toilette – this is a very enjoyable floral fragrance. It’s all about iris, rose, lilac and powder. It’s very nice!

8 Olay Gentle Hydrating Rich Creamy Cleansing Milk – this is a great make-up remover. I will buy it again, no doubt.

9 Imperial Leather Indulgence Irresistible Body Wash – this is a sensational shower gel. I have a back-up bottle!

10 Patisserie De Bain Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Crème – I didn’t love the sweet fragrance, and I won’t buy it again.

11 Boots Essentials Cucumber 3-Minute Clay Mask – this is a great face mask. Very effective! I like to leave it on for about 15 minutes, and I love the deep cleanse it gives my skin. By the way, when I cut up the “empty” tube, there was enough product left for 2 more uses for me and my husband! Yes, I will buy it again.

12 Beautifully Scrumptious Aloe Vera Body Butter – this is a nice body butter. I would like to buy it again.

13 Yves Rocher Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel – this was an awesome shower scrub. Too bad it’s been discontinued, otherwise I’d love to buy it again.

14 The Body Shop White Musk Breeze Body Purée – now that I’ve finished the 2nd bottle, I’m thinking this was actually a very nice little body moisturiser… but it was a limited edition from a few years ago, so this one’s definitely gone for good!

15 Superdrug Gentle Foaming Facial Wash For Dry Skin – another great product from Superdrug. Too bad it’s been discontinued.

I also used a few single-use face masks. I’m not counting them because I don’t keep the empty sachets. If you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here.

This is everything I emptied in September. I think I’ve done well this month! What have you emptied recently? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Patisserie De Bain Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Crème and Hand & Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream and Hand & Body Lotion. I wouldn’t have chosen these products for myself, but I received them as a gift with purchase. And here’s what I think. 🙂

Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream is quite alright. It lathers up well, and whilst it’s a bit drying, I think the fragrance is surprisingly well done. It’s too sweet for my taste, but I’d describe it as a mix of cranberries, custard and pink champagne. Again, not really my kind of fragrance, but if you like sweet fragrances in shower gels, I’d recommend this shower gel.

Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Hand & Body Lotion isn’t great because they didn’t get the fragrance right. I’d describe it as a sickly sweet mess. This one will be used as a foot cream!

If you’re interested, you can purchase Patisserie De Bain products through Rose & Co. England. Superdrug stocks a few of their products as well. Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream and Hand & Body Lotion are available as 200ml each.
