Empties – November 2018

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied in November. First of all, I used a number of single-use face masks. Whilst I don’t keep the empty sachets, you can read about my latest face mask finds if you click here. Now, let’s have a closer look at the big bottles and tubes!

1 Balance Active Formula Dragon’s Blood Eye Lift Balm – this eye cream hydrates skin nicely, but that’s about it. I don’t think I’ll buy it again.

2 Positively Fruity Smells Like Wild Cherries Body Lotion – this is a shared empty. My husband and I used most of this body lotion as a foot lotion. I wouldn’t repurchase this product.

3 Boots Garden Collection Rose Body Lotion (travel size) – this is a decent body lotion. I have one more tube!

4 Derma V10 Mango Body Butter – this is a nice body butter. I might buy it again.

5 Superdrug Hand & Nail Cream – this is another shared empty. My husband and I used this hand cream as a foot cream. I wouldn’t repurchase this product.

6 Possibility Amber & Lavender Bath and Shower Body Scrub – this is a great product. I’d love to buy it again, but this lovely fragrance is no longer availble. 😦

7 Daily Defense Pomegranate And Vitamin E Moisturizing Conditioner – another awesome hair product from Daily Defense. I’ll repurchase it, no doubt! If you’re wondering what happened to the matching shampoo… I like to use matching hair products, and whenever I finish a conditioner, I pass the leftover shampoo on to my husband.

8 Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream – this is a great shower cream, and I’ll repurchase it soon. My husband used it too, so this is another shared empty!

9 Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter – this is one of the best body butters I’ve ever had. Unfortunately, it’s been discontinued. 😦

10 MUA Blusher Shade 2 – I liked this blush. Good pigmentation, east to blend, lovely shade. I wouldn’t buy it again, but that’s only because I have way too many blushes…

11 Superdrug B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – one of my holy grail products!

12 Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfection Cleansing Gel – this is a very effective face wash. This is another shared empty (my husband enjoyed this face wash very much). If you’re looking for a simple product that gives your skin a proper deep cleanse, look no further! I can see myself buying this face wash again.

13 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser – this is a nice and effective cleansing cream. I’ve been happy with it, but I won’t buy it again any time soon because I have a few similar products in my stash, and I need to get on top of those cleansers first.

14 Boots The Garden Collection Lavender Body Lotion (travel size) – I think this is a great little body lotion. I have a back-up!

15 Boots The Garden Collection Lavender Body Wash (travel size) – this shower gel was really lovely. I have one more bottle!

16 Baylis & Harding Mango & Mandarin Fragrance Mist – I enjoyed this body mist while it lasted, but it wasn’t special enough for me to buy it again.

I’m happy with what I finished in November. I said goodbye to a blush, I emptied a few travel-sized products, and I managed to finish several skin care products. Not bad, eh? 🙂 What have you finished last month? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. I’ve been using this product on and off since January, so it’s time for a review! 🙂 Let’s start with the basics! This cleanser claims to help revive skin’s radiance and to even out skin tone. And in addition it promises to make skin look and feel renewed, soft and ultra-clean.

And how does it work? You’re supposed to massage the cleanser into wet skin (face and neck) to dissolve make-up. Then rinse the muslin cloth in hand-hot water, wring it out, and use it to “polish off” the cleanser. And then just rinse (or splash) your face with water, and pat it dry with a towel. Now that sounds easy enough!

Like I said, I’ve been using this cleanser on and off since January. That’s because I always go back to my Olay Anti-Wrinkle cleansing products which I like bit more. However, this Superdrug cleanser is still very good because it’s quick and easy to use and it cleanses very well. And yes, it makes my skin feel clean and soft! I haven’t noticed any additional skin brightening effect that I could trace back to this cleanser, but since I only use it 1 to 3 times a week, I’m not expecting any miracles.

I would recommend this hot cloth cleanser + muslin cloth duo to everyone who wants to cleanse their face quickly and easily – and with water. I will definitely continue to use this cleanser, and I will stock up on muslin cloths because they seem to be great beauty tools!

Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser is available as 150ml (+ muslin cloth) for £5.99. I paid £2.95 (half price offer).
