Empties – August 2017

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished last month. Like always, I’ve used a couple of single-use face masks, but I didn’t keep the sachets (I never do). So let’s focus on the big empties – the real empties!

1 Givenchy Ange Ou Démon – a lovely fragrance! I would buy it again, no doubt. However, I think I’d like to try the purple version first (I’m sorry, I can’t be bothered to look up the exact name).

2 Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Spray – this is such a wonderful all-over body spray. The vanilla fragrance is sweet and dreamy – awesome stuff! This one is a shared empty. Yes, my husband used this body spray too! I have 2 back-up bottles.

3 Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Spray – I love it! This is the perfect mango fragrance. I have 2 large back-up bottles!

4 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation. Yes, I have several back-up Pan Stiks. 🙂

5 Superdrug Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Butter – this body butter is really nice. It smells natural and authentic. I will buy it again.

6 NYC In A Minute 001 Evil – this is one of the nicer black polishes I had / have (I have several back-up bottles). And this is also one of the black non-stamping polishes that I used for stamping. This polish was only about 1/3 full, so I poured the leftovers into another half full black polish bottle. Tadaa!

7 Montagne Jeunesse Buriti Fruit Body Smoothie – this is a fantastic moisturiser. I already bought a back-up!

8 The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter – my husband and I used this one as a foot butter. It was OK. I have another tub which will also be used as a foot butter…

9 Original Source Skin Quench Cherry & Jojoba Oil Shower – this is a nice shower gel. It has moisturising oil beads that burst on the skin, and I like the fun fragrance. I have a back-up bottle.

10 Radox Revive Mandarin & Lemongrass Shower Gel – this is one of the best summer shower gels ever. It’s so refreshing! I will buy it again, no doubt. My husband also enjoyed this shower gel. So this one’s a shared empty.

11 Superdrug Extracts Aloe Vera & Mango Conditioner – this conditioner is the definition of average. I won’t buy it again. My husband is using up the leftover shampoo – he doesn’t care for it.

12 Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree Shower – this is another shower gel that my husband and I like. I have at least 2 back-up bottles. This one’s another shared empty.

And this is all the stuff I finished last month. It’s not much compared to what I’ve finished over the past few months, but that’s OK. I know that I’ll finish a couple more products very shortly. Anyhoo, have you tried any of these products? Which products did you finish recently? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

And I have a little make-up update!

I’ve been using this Manhattan eye palette a lot lately. The shimmery champagne shade is my current go-to inner corner shade. And I’ve been loving the light brown shade too – I’ve already hit pan! 🙂 I tried to love the orange eyeshadow, but it’s not going to happen, so I’ll see if I can use it to make an orange stamping nail polish. I’ll let you know if it works. 🙂

Now onto the lipsticks! MUA’s Shade 11 lipstick is one of my favourites. I have several lipsticks in the same shade, and 3 of them are in use. Since I’d like to finish at least one of them, I slapped a sticker on the lid – so I know which one’s the one. My beloved UNE Casual Matt M18 lipstick is almost finished. Almost. From now on I have to apply it with a lip brush… And then there’s my Freedom Bare 115 Mannequin lipstick which I hope to finish as well…

This is it for this week. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Extracts Aloe Vera & Mango Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! I’ve only ever tried 1 Superdrug own brand shampoo and conditioner combo. And I wanted to give Superdrug’s Extracts collection another chance. So today I’m reviewing Superdrug Extracts Aloe Vera & Mango Shampoo & Conditioner. These products are aimed at people with oily or normal hair. Now let me tell you if these products are any good. 🙂

The shampoo is the definition of average. It cleanses my hair and scalp reasonably, and it smells quite pleasant (fresh and fruity). But the shampoo is also quite runny which isn’t the greatest quality in a shampoo… The conditioner is definitely better than the shampoo. It detangles my hair nicely without flattening it. I think the conditioner is actually quite alright.

I will continue to use these products until the conditioner is finished. And then I will pass the shampoo on to my husband. I don’t think I’ll buy these two hair care products again because there much better hair products out there.

Superdrug’s Extracts Aloe Vera & Mango Shampoo & Conditioner are vegan and cruelty-free. They’re BUAV-approved and they carry the Leaping Bunny logo. Superdrug’s Extracts shampoos and conditioners are usually £1.99 each for 400ml. I paid 89p each (promotion)!
