Empties – May 2020

Hi there! I hope you had a great start into the week and into June. 😘 Today’s post is about all the products I managed to finish in May. I’ve done really well, and here’s everything I said goodbye to.

1 Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette – this is an amazing fragrance! I have a few more bottles in my stash!

2 Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist – another lovely fragance from Yves Rocher. Yes, I have a few more of these too!

3 Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion – one of my of favourite body moisturisers. I will buy it again, no doubt!

4 Manhattan Tasty Lips Lipgloss American Grapefruit – a truly amazing lipgloss. If this one hadn’t been discontinued, I’d pick it up again.

5 Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution – this is the best pore-unclogging and brightening product I’ve never used. I have a few more of these in my stash!

6 Boots The Garden Collection Rose Body Lotion (travel size) – this is a lovely non-greasy body lotion which I’d be happy to buy again.

7 Smack Beauty Sleeping Beauty Firming Night Cream – this is an OK night cream. I wouldn’t buy it again as there’s much better stuff out there.

8 Nivea Clay Fresh Deep Cleansing Shower Ginger & Basil Scent – a nice shower gel. I think I’ll buy it again!

9 Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Conditioner – one of the best conditioners I’ve ever used. I’ve already repurchased it (+ the matching shampoo).

10 Radox Scent Touch Feel Positive – this is a nice shower gel that I might buy again.

11 Rightguard Shower + Oils Purple Orchid – I love this shower gel! I’ll buy it again next time I see it.

12 Radox Eastern Spirit – this is a really nice bath gel. Unfortunately, this fragrance has been discontinued.

13 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. I have a few more bottles in my stash.

14 Burberry Brit Red – I loved this fragrance! Too bad it was a limited edition…

15 Primark PS… Pink Grapefruit Overnight Jelly Mask – this is a decent jelly moisturiser, but I won’t buy it again as there’s better stuff waiting to be used!

I also used a few single-use face masks. If you’d like to know which masks I tried recently, click here. I’m very happy with what I finished this month. I hope June will be amazing for empties too!

Thanks for stopping by! 🥰

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Primark PS… Pink Grapefruit. Overnight Jelly Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Pink Grapefruit Overnight Jelly Mask. This is not really a mask; this is a moisturiser which is aimed at people with dull or combination skin. It promises to make skin appear smoother and revitalised. Use it as you would use your night cream.

The pack provided enough product for about 12 applications – and I used a generous amount of product each time. I enjoyed the fresh grapefruit fragrance, and I can confirm that the product made my skin look smooth in the morning. However, at the same time my skin felt a little dry over time. Nothing major, just a bit dryer than usual.

Based on my experience, I think this jelly mask would be more suitable to people with normal to oily skin. If you have dry skin, it might be better to alternate it with your regular night cream. Yes, I should have thought of this sooner! 🤦‍♀️

Primark’s PS… Pink Grapefruit Overnight Jelly Mask is available as 25ml for £1.50 at Primark. This product is vegan and certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!
