Hi there! Today’s post is my July Empties post – so it’s about all the products I used up last month. Let’s take a closer look at them!
1 Prada Infusion D’Iris Hydrating Body Lotion – this is an alright body lotion for spring and summer. Basic hydration but a long-lasting and powerful fragrance. I wouldn’t pay full price for this body lotion, but I wouldn’t mind picking it up as part of another reduced price fragrance gift set! 😋
2 A’kin Brightening Vitamin C & Niacinamide Correcting Eye Gel – a basic eye cream. I wouldn’t buy it again.
3 Giorgio Armani Armani Code Summer Eau Fraîche – an elegant and pretty summer fragrance. I’d repurchase it.
4 Olay Anti-Wrinkle 2 In 1 Firm & Lift Anti-Wrinkle Booster + Firming Serum – a very nice serum! I’d be more than happy to buy it again!
5 Max Factor Pan Stik 12 True Beige – my holy grail foundation! 🥰
6 Boots Botanics Refreshing Toning Spritz – not my favourite face mist. I won’t buy it again.
7 Aussie Mega Conditioner – this conditioner is one half of one of my all-time favourite hair care combos. A definite repurchase (along with the shampoo).
8 Cussons Creations Peace Bottled Apple & Elderflower Shower Gel – a decent shower gel. Definitely refreshing. It was nice enough while it lasted, but it wasn’t a favourite, so I won’t buy it again. My husband used this shower gel too – quite a few times actually – so he helped me use it up!
9 Nivea Refreshing Face Wash – a basic face wash. I won’t buy it again.
10 Imperial Leather Awakening Mango & Papaya Infusions Shower Cream – a lovely shower gel! Unfortunately, this one has been discontinued, so I can’t buy it again.
11 Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Wash – another discontinued beauty. I have a few more products from this range in my stash.
I also used a few single use face masks. You can read about my latest face mask finds if you click here. All in all, not a bad month for empties. I love to finish skin care, but I also love to finish big shower gel bottles and tubes. So based on that, I’ve done pretty well!

Hi there! It’s the first day of a new month, and this means that today’s post is about last month’s beauty empties. And here they are!
1 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Lip Balm – a decent lip balm! I have another one in my stash.
2 Mugler Aura Eau De Parfum Sensuelle – this is a nice fragrance for sure, but I didn’t enjoy it enough to buy it again.
3 Rimmel Lycra Pro 421 Clearly Clear – one of my favourite clear polishes. I should have a few more of these in my stash.
4 Yves Rocher Jardins Du Monde Well-Being Shower Gel With Lavandin – this is a decent shower gel in many ways, but not a favourite, so I won’t be buying it again.
5 Dove Go Fresh Revive Body Wash With Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena Scent – I don’t think I’ll buy this shower gel again. It’s just not repurchase-worthy.
6 Palmolive My Fresh Splash Shower Gel – such a lovely shower gel. Too bad it was a limited edition, otherwise I’d buy it again.
7 Agent Provocateur Aphrodisiaque Eau De Parfum – nice enough while it lasted (my husband liked this fragrance on me), but I wouldn’t buy it again.
8 Garnier Skin Active Soothing Botanical Toner With Rose Water – this is an OK toner. I don’t think I’ll buy it again.
9 B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – a beauty staple! I have a few more of these!
10 Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo & Conditioner – I love Gliss’ liquid silk hair products. A definite repurchase!
11 Radox Essentials Soft Care Bath Cream with Milk – one of my favourite bath products ever. Unfortunately, it was discontinued, so I can’t buy it again.
12 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover!
13 Prada Infusion D’Iris Eau De Toilette – a really nice fragrance. Repurchase-worthy!
14 Patisserie De Bain Orange Crush Hand Cream – a decent hand cream, no doubt, but I don’t think that I’ll repurchase it.
15 Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Eye Renewal Gel – one of my all-time favourite eye products. I have at least 2 more in my stash.
I also used 11 single-use face masks. And all in all, I’m happy with what I managed to use up in January!

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau de Toilette.
I’ve been wearing this fragrance a lot this spring and summer, and I wanted to review it before it’s finished.
This fragrance contains the following notes: iris, violet, heliotrope, cedar, galbanum and lily-of-the-valley.
What’s the fragrance like? It smells of iris root, violet, powder, clean laundry and spring. Despite the powdery notes, the fragrance has an overall fresh feel.
I think this is a great fragrance for spring and summer. When it’s over 30C, I prefer lemon and grapefruit scents. However, I think Infusion d’Iris wears really well on the warmest summer days. Awesome stuff, Prada!
Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau de Toilette is available as 50ml, 100ml and, apparently, even as 200ml!
