Empties – February 2020

Hi there! Since it’s the first working day of a new month, this post is about all the products I emptied last month. I used a few single use face masks (of which I didn’t keep the sachets – as usual). But if you want to read about the face masks I tried recently, click here. Alright, let’s look at the bigger tubs, tubes and bottles. 👀

1 My Little Pony Fruity Lip Balm – this was one of my all-time favourite lip balms. I’ll miss the heavenly honeydew flavour!

2 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – best foundation ever! I’m so sad this amazing oil-based makeup has been replaced by an oil-free matte foundation. 😭 I’m glad I stocked up on original Pan Stiks!

3 Olay Essentials Glow Perfectors BB Cream Light – a decent tinted moisturiser. The shade light is way too dark for me (it’s more like a sunkissed medium), but otherwise, it’s not a bad product. I won’t repurchase it, but I think I might have a backup!

4 Bvlgari Omnia Paraiba – a terribly cheap smelling fragrance. It was good enough for work for a few weeks. I got compliments from a few female co-workers who consider Impulse sprays to be fragrance. That tells you what this Bvlgari fragrance smells like! Yes, it’s perfectly OK to like Impulse sprays, but you wouldn’t pay £24 for a can, right? Anyhoo, I’m glad Omnia Paraiba is gone. And I won’t be blind-buying any more Bvlgari fragrances.

Herbal Essences Shimmering Colour Conditioner – this was the last of its kind! I’m sad to say goodbye to it. 😭

6 Radox Essentials Soft Care Bath Cream with Milk – one of my all-time favourite bath products. Too bad it was discontinued, but I have 1 more bottle in my stash!

7 Imperial Leather Japanese Spa – another lovely shower gel from Imperial Leather! And yes, I have another bottle in my stash!

8 Skin Assistant Collagen Morning Glow Serum (no photo) – I came close to finishing this facial oil when the lid broke. I didn’t want to bin the product, so I mixed the last few drops of oil with my current face mist – success! 💪 I might repurchase this facial oil once I’m a bit more on top of my facial oil and serum stash! I’m sorry there’s no photo. It was just too messy to even try to reattach the lid!

9 Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream – I love this stuff! Repurchase? Absolutely!

10 Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Conditioner – I liked this shampoo and conditioner combo, and I might buy it again.

11 Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Soothing Hydrating Lotion With Delicate Oat – this is a lovely body lotion that I will buy again, no doubt!

12 Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Eye Cream – this is a nice eye cream that’s a lot better than its price suggests. I’d recommend it, and I can definitely see myself buying it again!

13 Dove Purely Pampering Almond Cream With Hibiscus – this is a nice shower cream. I have another bottle.

14 Montagne Jeunesse Blemish Mud Face Mask – this one served me well. I might buy this face mask again in the future.

This is everything I finished last month. Not bad for a February! Sorry about the strange lighting in all the photos. I’m still figuring out how and where to take the best photos at our new place. And thanks for stopping by! 😘

Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel & Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 shower products which I started to use just last week – Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel and Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream.

Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel smells of candied cherries. It’s not the most sophisticated fragrance, but I’m enjoying it. I also like the formula. Whilst this is a shower gel, it doesn’t feel drying at all. Nicely done, Radox!

Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream is very nice! It’s gentle on dry skin and the berry fragrance is fresh and fruity (without that overly ripe aroma that most berry-scented products have). I like this one very much, and I know I’ll buy it again!

Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel and Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (Poundland).
