Empties – October 2019

Hi there! It’s a new day and a new month (Hello November!) – so today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to in October. As always, I used a few single-use face mask, but I didn’t keep the empty sachets. If you’re interested in my latest face mask finds, click here. Now, let’s focus on the bigger bottles and tubs. 🙂

1 Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Night Cream – I had to bin this product because it caused me physical harm. 😲

2 Skin Care Chemist Macadamia Beauty Oil – this is a lovely oil. Not too heavy, suitable for warmer weather as well. I’d like to repurchase it, but I’d like to try other oils from this brand first.

3 Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Perfume Roll-On – this is a nice fragrance, and I think this is already the 2nd blood orange roll-on I’ve emptied, but I won’t buy it again.

4 Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream – a lovely eye cream. I won’t pay full price for it (£18), but if it’s part of a reduced price gift set (I’m looking forward to the post-Christmas half price) sale, I’d be happy to have it again.

5 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. Priced at £1 for 400ml it’s a steal!

6 Body-X Endless Weekend Shower Gel – my husband and I enjoyed this shower gel, so this is a shared empty. I’d like to repurchase it!

7 Treacle Moon One Ginger Morning Shower & Bath Gel – another shower gel my husband and I enjoyed, and yes, this one’s another shared empty. I wouldn’t mind picking it up again next summer.

8 Manhattan Nail Whitener – not bad, but not great. I’d pick it up again for £1, but I wouldn’t spend more than that.

9 Superdrug B. Soft Multi Acid Retexturising Pads – these pads are great, but I won’t buy them again because the ones from Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant range are a tad better.

10 Superdrug Sweet Snuggles Lip Balm – a nice vanilla lip balm. I have a few more of these.

11 Essence Eyeliner Pencil 01 Black – my go-to eyeliner. I have a few more of these.

12 The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig Shower Gel – this is a very nice shower gel. I’d buy it again but TBS discontinued it!

13 Herbal Essences Classics Silk N’ Shine Conditioner – this is the best conditioner EVER. It’s been discontinued but I’ve got plenty of backup!

14 Garnier Skin Active Nourishing Botanical Toner With Honey Flower – this is a below average toner, and I won’t repurchase it.

I thought October would be terrible for empties, but with a bit of focus and dedication I managed to empty 7 products over the last 7 days. Success! 💪 Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try them? What have you emptied recently? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!

100% Cruelty-Free – Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Vanilla Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Christmas-themed body products – Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter.

These products were part of a small gift set which I bought last year. I spotted the exact same gift set at Superdrug just a few days ago. So I decided to give these products a try!

Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub smells like… Christmas cookies! The scrub itself is nice as well. It’s easy to spread, it’s not too harsh, but it’s effective!

Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter is lovely. The body butter is very rich, and the fragrance is the sweetest, warmest and cuddliest spicy vanilla. Fantastic stuff!

Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter are available as part of Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Bathing Set which I saw on sale for £3.50 the other day. The body scrub and the body butter are 100ml each.

This Year’s Vegan & Cruelty-Free Secret Santa Gift To A Colleague – Sweet Snuggles 5 Piece Bathing Gift Set

Hi there! I’m taking part in this year’s Secret Santa at my workplace. And I was lucky to draw the name of a female colleague out of a mug. I knew I’d be going for a toiletries set anyway, so I bought this Sweet Snuggles 5 Piece Bathing Set.
Sweet Snuggles Body Care Set
This gift set contains 250 ml Vanilla Body Wash, 250 ml Vanilla Body Lotion, 100ml Double Choc Body Cream, 100ml Double Choc Body Scrub, and a pink body puff.

This Sweet Snuggles 5 Piece Bathing Set is £4.50 only at the moment. I think this is a really good deal considering the set contains full size products. So if you’re looking for a last minute Secret Santa gift for a female colleague, I think this gift set (which is available at Superdrug’s) would be a good idea.

Another plus: This set carries the Leaping Bunny logo. The products are cruelty-free and suitable for vegans!
