Empties – July 2020

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied in July. If you read my blog regularly, you know I don’t take photos of empty face mask sachets, but rest assured that I used lots of face masks last month! If you want to read about my latest face mask finds, click here! Now let’s get to the big bottles…

1 Palmolive Aroma Moments So Relaxed Aromatic Bath Foam (no photo) – one of my favourite bath products! Sorry, I have no photo. My husband was the one who finished the bath foam, and he binned the empty bottle.

2 Spa Premium Epsom Salts (no photo) – I enjoyed these bath salts, and I want to pick them up again next time I swing by my local Poundstretcher. Sorry there’s no photo. My husband finished these bath salts, and, of course, he doesn’t keep empty packs or bottles around. And no, he also doesn’t know that I photograph my trash! 😁

3 Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditioner – not a bad conditioner, but not good enough for me to buy it again.

4 Body-X Twilight Amber – I liked this shower gel a lot, and I’d like to buy it again.

5 Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth – a nice shower gel. The scent is a bit too masculine for my taste, but I think I’ll pick it up again for my husband.

6 Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Refreshing Cleansing Pads – these were lovely, and I’l repurchase them, no doubt!

7 Color Club Nail Polish – not sure about the name of the shade. This was 1 of the 6 polishes from their Bridal Collection set. I used this polish as a base coat. I think I emptied one of these before, so I have 4 more… In any event, I wouldn’t buy any of these non-colours again.

8 Barry M Base Coat Top Coat Nail Hardener – I think this is an OK clear polish for all sorts of purposes. I don’t think I’ll buy it again (unless it’s an emergency purchase).

9 I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Shower & Bath Crème – This is I Love…’s best fragrance. I have several bottles (250ml and 500ml) of this amazing shower gel in my stash.

10 Radox Scent Touch Feel Fresh – I won’t buy this shower gel again. It smells too masculine for my taste.

11 Baylis & Harding Skin Spa Rose, Ylang Ylang & Patchouli Hand Lotion – it took me ages to finish this hand lotion – and most of it was actually used as a foot lotion. But it doesn’t matter. I DID IT! With my husband’s help. So this is a shared empty.

July wasn’t the greatest month for empties, but August should be better. I know I’ll finish a shower gel, a fragrance, a toner, a serum and a face mist well before the end of this week.

Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for stopping by! 🥰

Superdrug Vitamin C Revitalising Jam Face Mask & Superdrug Refreshing Cleansing Pads. These products are £4.99 each, but I picked them up when they were on a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion.

Dead Sea Collection Anti Wrinkle Retinol Day & Night Creams. I think these ones were £4.99 each, but I’m not sure. Either way, I found these at Home Bargains.

Dead Sea Collection Anti Wrinkle Facial Serum. Also £4.99, I believe. Yes, Home Bargains. And there’s Bvlgari Omnia Paraiba£24 at Debenhams.
