Empties – March 2019

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in March. As always, I used a number of single-use face masks. I don’t keep the empty sachets for my monthly empties posts, but you can click here if you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds. Now… onto the big bottles and tubs! 🙂

1 I Love… Chocolate Truffle Nourishing Body Butter – this is one of my favourite body butters. It smells like chocolate ice cream! I have a few more tubs of this body butter.

2 True Skin Hydrating Facial Water – I’m glad this stuff is finished. I didn’t like it at all. Good riddance!

3 Palmolive Naturals Pampering Touch Shower Milk With Coconut – this is a lovely shower cream. And it doesn’t smell of coconut at all! Great stuff! I will repurchase this one, no doubt.

4 Palmolive Aroma Moments So Luminous Shower Gel – this is a nice shower gel that I can see myself buying again.

5 Super Facialist By Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask – this is a great mask. Very effective! At the moment I have too many face masks to even think about repurchasing any of them, but this is definitely one I would be happy to have again.

6 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish – this is a great product. I had it before, and I’ll buy it again.

7 Daily Defense Moisturising Conditioner With Keratin – one of my all-time favourites. I have 2 more shampoo and conditioner combos in my stash!

8 Dolly’s Mixtures Candy Floss Sweetness & Light Shower Gel – this is a cute shower gel. It’s very sweet! I might buy it again.

9 Yves Rocher Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel – a lovely shower gel. Too bad it was a limited edition.

10 Yves Rocher Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Perfumed Body Lotion – another nice YR product. Limited edition as well.

11 Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter – good but not great. I wouldn’t repurchase it, but it were part of a gift set, I wouldn’t mind using it again.

This is what I used up in March. It’s not much compared to the past few months, but I’m not unhappy. As long as I finish at least 10 products per month, I won’t complain. 😎

What have you used up recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Soap & Glory‘s The Righteous Butter which is aimed at women with dry to very dry skin. On the side of the tub it reads “a body moisturizing formula so virtuous, you might swear you’re wearing velvet”.

Soap and Glory also went to great lengths to describe the fragrance – apparently it’s a mix of leafy greens, bergamot, mandarin, fruity and floral notes, as well as musk, oakmoss, amber and woody notes.

I’ve been using this body butter for a week now, and I think it’s good but not great. I like the formula. It’s easy to spread, and it absorbs quickly (great for when you’re in a hurry). It hydrates my skin reasonably well without feeling sticky. And a look at the bottom of the tub reveals that this body butter contains quality ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and cocoa seed butter.

Having said that, there are many other body butters (lotions even) which hydrate skin much better and which cost a lot less. As someone who actually has very dry skin, I have to say that this body butter is nothing special.

I also don’t care for the fragrance. It’s a nice enough but forgettable girly pink fragrance. I think it smells like aloe, watermelon and candy floss. It’s not a bad fragrance, but it’s rather unspectacular.

Soap & Glory‘s The Righteous Butter is available as 50ml for £3 and 300ml for £10. I have a 200ml tub which is a special size they did for their Christmas gift sets.
