Empties – January 2022

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!

Prada Infusion D’Iris Eau De Toilette

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!
