Empties – February 2019

Hi there! It’s the 1st of March – this means that it’s time for my February Empties post. I’ve used a number of single-use face masks. As always, I didn’t keep the empty sachets. But you can click here if you want to read about my latest face mask finds.

Another thing – I achieved something big! What? Well, over the past 2 weeks, I managed to finish 3 lip products! Wow! Anyway, read on if you’d like to know which products I finished between 1 and 28 February!

1 Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet (travel size) – one of the best shower gels ever! I hope Treacle Moon makes this available in 500ml bottles! Pretty please!

2 Flower Pharm Wild Rose Body Butter – one of the best body butters I’ve ever used. Unfortunately, it’s been discontinued! 😪

3 Garnier Skin Active Nourishing Botanical Cleansing Milk – this is a disappointing product. I wouldn’t buy it again.

4 Alberto Balsam Volume Boost Conditioner – this is a fantastic conditioner that I will buy again. If you’re wondering what happened to the matching shampoo… whenever I finish a conditioner, I pass the matching leftover shampoo on to my husband, and I start with a new shampoo and conditioner combo.

5 Tesco Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Foaming Face Wash With Grapefruit & Cranberry – a nice face wash. But I wouldn’t repurchase it because I have too many face washes in my stash.

6 Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic Shower And Bath – a nice shower gel. I might buy it again.

7 Imperial Leather Foamy Banana Bath Cream (x2) – yes, I bathed a lot in February. I had a cold, and those warm baths really helped. Anyhoo, Imperial Leather’s Foamy Banana products are simply wonderful. I need to stock up!

8 Claire’s Popcorn Popcorn Lip Balm – one of the best lip balms ever. I’m sad it’s gone because it’s been discontinued, and I can’t repurchase it. 😢

9 Freedom MakeUp London Pro Lipstick Bare 115 Mannequin – I liked the colour, but all in all, this was a low quality lipstick. I wouldn’t buy it again.

10 Manhattan Cosmetics Soft Mat Lip Cream 95G – another unloved lip product that I’m glad is finished. I wouldn’t repurchase it.

11 Vaseline Intensive Care Hand Cream + Anti-Bac – this is a nice hand cream. I have plenty of hand creams to go through before I buy any new ones, but I would repurchase this one.

12 Derma V10 Cocoa Body Butter – this is a great little body butter. I will repurchase it.

13 Treacle Moon Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise – I didn’t like this shower gel at all. It didn’t smell pleasant.

February has been another good month for empties. I’m proud of myself for finishing 3 lip products – I’ve never managed to do this before, and I think it’s been a year since I finished my last lipstick or lip balm!

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

Tesco Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Foaming Face Wash With Grapefruit & Cranberry

Hi there! Today’s post is about Tesco Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Foaming Face Wash With Grapefruit & Cranberry.

This face wash contains salicylic acid, vitamin c, and grapefruit and cranberry extracts.

It promises to remove dirt, oil and impurities with ease, and to prevent spots and imperfections from forming.

The product is easy to use – just use it as you’d use any other face wash. 🙂

I’ve been using this product on and off for a few weeks now, and I’m happy with it.

This face wash is gentle on the skin, but it’s actually quite powerful. I can feel that it cleanses my skin properly without making it feel stripped. It even removes make-up with ease! This is truly great!

Whilst I don’t think that this face wash has any visible brightening effect, I’m happy with its overall performance and I would recommend it.

Tesco Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Foaming Face Wash With Grapefruit & Cranberry is available as 150ml for £3.
