Empties – January 2018

Hi there! It’s the 1st of February, so it’s time for my January 2018 Empties post. So let me show you which products I finished. 🙂

1 Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream – I enjoyed using this eye cream, and I would recommend it to everyone who’s looking for an eye cream that hydrates well and that plays well with make-up. I won’t buy this eye cream again – I just have too many eye creams in my stash!

2 Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Wash – this is a lovely body wash. I’ll buy it again, no doubt!

3 Zatik Beauty Essentials Passionfruit Cacao Organic Lotion Moisture Recovery – I didn’t love this product because it’s not the most suitable product for my skin type. I wouldn’t repurchase this particular product, but I’d like to try other products from this brand.

Olay Anti-Wrinkle 2 in 1 Instant Hydration + Radiant Glow – a lovely moisturiser! I have 1 or 2 back-up bottles, so I don’t need to stock up any time soon.

5 Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Glamorous – I loved this shower scrub – and so did my husband. So this one is a shared empty. I’ll repurchase this product again, no doubt!

B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – this is one of my holy grail products. It changed my life. I don’t want to be without it. Yes, I have several back-up bottles!

7 Claire’s Meringue Flavoured Lip Balm – this was a nice lip balm. I’ve got more Claire’s lip balms that I can’t wait to try!

8 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Leave-On Moisture Mask – this stuff is awesome. I will repurchase it soon!

9 Olay Hydration Balancing + Purifying Cleansing 2 In 1 Refreshing Face Wash – a lovely face wash. Happy yo buy it again!

10 L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Conditioner – one of the best conditioners L’Oréal ever made. It appears that, unfortunately, the Full Restore 5 Extreme collection has been discontinued. 😦

11 Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia – this is a lovely shower cream. I’ve already repurchased it.

12 Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Eau De Toilette – this is a wonderful vanilla fragrance. If you liked the original The Body Shop vanilla fragrance, you’ll love this one!

13 Sanctuary Spa Crème Soufflé – this moisturiser feels very luxurious. And I love the Sanctuary Spa fragrance! I’ll probably repurchase this product.

14 TRESemmé Renewal Hair & Scalp Nourish & Renew Deep Conditioning Masque – I think this is a good deep conditioner. I would repurchase it.

15 NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist – I enjoyed the product, but I don’t think that I’ll buy this body mist again because the big 200ml bottle takes ages to finish – and I have too many fragrances and body mists in my stash.

16 Rossmann Wellness & Beauty Mango & Ylang-Ylang Body Lotion – I bought this body lotion a very long time ago. I thought that, after such a long time, I shouldn’t use it as a body lotion, so I used it as a foot cream. Result = happy feet!

17 I Love… Chocolate Truffle Nourishing Body Butter – this body butter smells insanely delicious. This was a limited edition product, and I’m glad I bought several tubs!

18 Sanctuary Spa Intensive Heel Balm – this product is amazing. It really helps with cracked and dry heels! I would like to repurchase it, but the small tube is £7.50 which, I think, is quite expensive. So I’ll keep my eyes peeled for special offers!

19 Essence Black Eyeliner – my favourite cheap eyeliner. I have lots more in my stash. 🙂

20 Manhattan Only Button Baby Eye Palette – I’m incredibly proud of myself for finishing this eye palette!

21 Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47 Nail Polish – I got every last drop of polish out of this polish (thanks to stamping!), and I’m really proud of myself for finishing another colour polish!

I’ve also used quite a few single-use face masks – but I didn’t keep the sachets. If you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here. This is everything I finished in January. I’m very happy that I managed to empty a few more skin care products and a small eye palette! What have you emptied recently? Any product you’re proud of finishing? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel, Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about two summer-themed products – NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel and NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist. NSPA products are exclusive to Asda, and the fruity body care products (500ml shower gels, 200ml body mists) are usually £3 each. I paid £2 each (2 for £4 promotion). Now onto the review!
NSPA Pineapple
NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel is more like a shower cream. It’s not the most refreshing shower poduct, but it’s not drying which is nice. The fragrance is sweet and exotic – almost like real pineapples. NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist is quite enjoyable as well. The pineapple fragrance isn’t very longlasting, but that’s OK really because this is obviously just a body mist.

All in all, I think these two products are quite reasonable and definitely good value for money. If you’re interested, give these products a sniff the next time you swing by your local Asda store. 🙂

Made In The UK – Anovia Fragranced Body Mists With Fruit Extracts – Light & Refreshing Passion Fruit & Pineapple, Sensual Marula & Argan

Hi there! A few weeks ago I bought lots of new products. And today’s post is about two of them – Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Light & Refreshing Passion Fruit & Pineapple and Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Sensual Marula & Argan.

These two body mist are made in the UK, they’re paraben-free, and they contain real fruit extracts! This sounds great, I know. But I haven’t told you about the best thing yet. OK, the best thing is that these 150ml body mists are 79p only at Home Bargains! Now let me tell you if they’re any good.

The Passion Fruit & Pineapple body mist is very fruity. It’s tropical and tangy – like passion fruits. And it’s also sweet and juicy – like pineapples! Whilst this body mist isn’t particularly long-lasting (it’s just a body mist after all), the fruity scent is refreshing and very pleasant while it lasts.

The Sensual Marula & Argan body mist is very nice. It smells warm, cuddly, feminine, and yes, sensual! It lasts longer than the fruity body mist, so if I douse myself in it, it lingers for almost half a day.

I think these body mists are really nice. They’re certainly as good as the considerably more expensive body mists that you can buy on the high street. Sure, these body mists aren’t ‘real’ perfumes, so you can’t expect them to last for long on your skin. However, they cling to fabrics, so I spray them on my scarves as well. 🙂

I would definitely recommend these body mists if you’re looking for a cheap pick-me-up or if you want a new body mist to pop into your handbag. I also think these body mists would be great for young teenage girls who are just getting into fragrances – that’s because these two scents are pleasant, they’re not too strong, and they’re cheap!

Have you tried these body mists? Or would you like to try them? Have you ever had anything from this brand?  Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!
