Empties – October 2021

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in October. I used a few single-use face masks, and you can click here if you’d like to read my latest face mask reviews. Now let’s look at the big bottles…

Imperial Leather Grapefruit & Pomegranate Shower Cream – I liked this one a lot! It’s been discontinued, and I believe this was the last one I had in my stash. 😢

2 Radox “Donut Mind If I Do” Vanilla Bean & White Chocolate Scent Shower Gel – very nice! Definitely repurchase-worthy!

3 Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Conditioner – a holy grail product! I have plenty of backup (shampoos AND conditioners!) 😁

4 Gosh Cracked Nail Lacquer 04 Gold – didn’t like it. Wouldn’t give it a second look.

5 Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Magenta Moves – I loved this polish so much! I think I have another bottle. Fingers crossed!

6 Primark PS… 2 In 1 Base & Top Coat – a decent clear polish. I should have 1 more bottle in my stash.

7 Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Regenerating Night Cream – I love this night cream! I have another one in my stash.

8 Superdrug Anti-Ageing Hand Cream – I used this hand cream as a foot cream, and it did a good job. But I won’t buy it again.

9 Garnier Body Tonic Firming Hydrating Lotion – a very nice body lotion! Repurchase-worthy, no doubt!

10 Original Source Sweet Apple & Vanilla Milk Moisturising Shower Milk – a really nice shower cream. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued, otherwise I’d buy it again.

11 Olay Essentials Refreshing Face Wash – a great face wash! I believe this product has been repackaged and is now called “Olay Cleanse Foaming Cleanser Jelly”, although I’m not 100% sure if it’s the exact same formula.

12 Asda Sleep & Relax Bath Soak – I love this bath soak! I already bought a few back-up bottles!

13 Classics Nail Polish Remover – they shrunk the bottle from 400ml to 250ml, but the price remained the same. Rather greedy from the manufacturer, but this will remain my go to nail polish remover.

I think I did more than alright with my empties in October. Hopefully November will be just as good. Fingers crossed!

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Moon, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Magenta Moves, Barry M Amethyst Glitter & Stamping With MoYou London Zodiac Collection 03 Aries

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Moon (thumbs, index and middle fingers, 2 coats) and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Magenta Moves (ring fingers, pinkies, 2 coats).

I used Barry M Amethyst Glitter to add some sparkle to the pink nails.

For the images on the beige holo nails I used my MoYou London Zodiac Collection 03 Aries plate and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani! It wasn’t the most creative mani, but it looked nice for a few days!

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Magenta Moves & Stamping With Pueen 74

Sally Hansen Magenta Moves Pueen 74Hi there! I’ve got a nail post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Magenta Moves (2 coats).

I love this polish. It’s almost a one-coater, it dries really fast, and the colour pops!

Initially I wanted to do a glitter mani, but then I opted for stamping.

I chose a remotely floral image from Pueen’s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

The white polish I stamped with is Essence’s fantastic white stamping polish (they call it stampy polish).

I think this mani looks quite nice. Sure, I could have taken a little more care to ensure the images would go on perfectly. But these little flaws are only visible in the photo. In real life no one noticed. 🙂

Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading!
