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! 🥰

Body-X Twilight Amber & Rightguard Shower + Oils Purple Orchid

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I’m using at the moment – Body-X Twilight Amber Shower Gel and Rightgard Shower + Oils Purple Orchid Shower Gel. I bought these shower gels on the same day, so I’m revieweing them in one go as well.

Let’s start with Body-X Twilight Amber Shower Gel. Now this is another amazing shower gel from Body-X. It’s my favourite of the ones I tried to far. It has a beautiful floral fragrance with a touch of fruit and honey. I’m enjoying this shower gel very much, and my husband likes it too!

Rightgard Shower + Oils Purple Orchid Shower Gel is simply wonderful. It’s super gentle on the skin, and it has a beautiful dark and cold orchid and lavender scent. My husband and I are enjoying this shower gel too!

Body-X Twilight Amber Shower Gel is available as 500ml. I paid £1 (B&M Bargains), and Rightgard Shower + Oils Purple Orchid Shower Gel is available as 300ml. I paid £1 for this one too (yes, B&M Bargains as well).

Rightguard Shower + Vitamin C with Pink Grapefruit & Rightguard Shower + Oils with Argan, Marula and Almond Oil

Hi there! Another post about random products, but… I’ve discovered something new – well, something that’s new to me! I can’t remember the last time I bought a Rightguard product, but there was a half price offer recently, so I picked up Rightguard Shower + Vitamin C with Pink Grapefruit and Rightguard Shower + Oils with Argan, Marula and Almond Oils. And these two shower gels are absolutely delightful.
Rightguard Shower
I love the Vitamin C shower gel and its gorgeous pink grapefruit scent in the morning. It’s refreshing and energising – it’s the perfect shower gel to start the day with. The oils-packed shower gel is a new evening favourite. It smells warm and feminine, but it’s not overpowering. The shower gel is gentle and caring and perfect when I can’t be bothered to moisturise before I go to bed.

If you haven’t tried these Rightguard shower gels already, you should give them a try. I bet you’ll love them just as much as I do. As always, keep your eyes peeled for half price offers and you can pick them up for £1.
