Empties – May 2018

Hi there! Happy Friday! It’s the 1st of June, so it’s time for my May Empties post. As always, I’ve used a number of single-use face masks. Whilst I don’t keep the empty sachets, you can read about my latest face mask finds if you click here. Now onto the ‘real’ empties!

1 Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume – this was nice while it lasted, but I don’t think I’ll buy it again. Having said that, I believe I have 2 Island Vanilla scented perfume roll-ons in my stash…

2 Superdrug Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel – I really liked this one. However, Superdrug sells another glycolic overnight peel that gives me the same results and that’s half the price, so I’ll stick with the cheaper product.

3 The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Eau De Toilette – I’m glad this one’s finished. I wouldn’t buy it again. I have another bottle in my stash, but I’ll pass it on to my teenage relative who I hope will enjoy it more.

4 B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – this is one of my holy grail products! 🙂

5 Olay Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo – this is a nice cleansing milk. I will buy it again, no doubt!

6 Christina Aguilera Eau De Parfum – this is a really nice fragrance. I might buy it again.

7 Palmolive So Tempting Shower Gel – this is a lovely shower gel that reminds me of Flower by Kenzo. I am happy to buy it (the shower gel, not the perfume) again. 🙂

8 TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Vibrant Colour Protection Conditioner – this conditioner is the epitome of “average”. I am glad it’s gone.

9 Treacle Moon Warm Cookie Dough Bath & Shower Gel – this shower gel is awesome. My husband enjoyed it too, so this one’s a shared empty. I’ll buy it again, no doubt!

10 Dr. Organic Aloe Vera Shampoo (travel size) – this is a decent shampoo. I might buy it again.

11 Boots Essentials Cucumber Facial Toner – this toner is excellent. I’m happy to repurchase it.

12 Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Spray – Boots’ mango fragrance is simply the best. I’m glad a have a few bottles of this awesome body spray in my stash.

13 Radox Feel Exotic Shower Gel – I didn’t love this shower gel, and I won’t buy it again.

14 Classics Nail Polish Remover – this is the best nail polish remover there is for £1. I’ve gone through several bottles over the years, and I’m sure I’ll buy many more.

15 Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Smoothing Nourishing Lotion With Cocoa Butter – this body lotion is awesome! I’ll buy it again, no doubt!

This is everything I finished in May. I’m happy I managed to finish a few fragrances and skin care products – and that 900ml conditioner. 🙂 Have you tried any of these products? Which products have you emptied recently? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

Radox Feel Rejuvenated & Radox Feel Exotic

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 Radox shower gels that I’ve been using for the past week – Radox Feel Rejuvenated (found this at my local Poundstretcher) and Radox Feel Exotic (this one’s from Superdrug).

Radox Feel Rejuvenated with orange oil and vitamin E is pretty awesome! It’s the nicest orange fragrance I’ve ever smelled in a product. It’s oranges, cream and a hint of cheesecake. It’s delicious! The shower cream formula is 100% non-drying. Awesome stuff!

Radox Feel Exotic with lychee and watermelon isn’t that great. I think it smells quite masculine! I’d describe the fragrance as a mix of fizzy guava and coconut. Disappointing…

Radox shower gels are available as 250ml for about £2. I paid 99p for the Feel Rejuvenated shower cream, and 79p for the Feel Exotic shower gel.
