Empties – November 2021

Hi there! It’s the first day of a new month, so this means that today’s post is about last month’s beauty trash = November’s empties. I used a bunch of single use face masks, and you can read about my latest face mask finds if you click here. Now let’s look at the big bottles and tubs and…

1 Radox Blueberry Scent Bath Bomb (no photo) – this was a single-use bath bomb, hence no photo. I enjoyed this bath bomb, and I might buy it again.

2 Original Source Green Banana & Bamboo Milk Moisturising Shower Milk – this is a really nice shower gel! I’d buy it again, but unfortunately, it was discontinued.

3 Radox Muscle Relax Bath Salts With Peppermint Scent – I used them twice and didn’t care for them. My husband used most of these salts, but he also didn’t love them. I won’t buy these bath salts again.

4 Max Factor Pan Stik 12 True Beige – my all-time favourite foundation! I have a few more of these!

5 Superdrug Layering Lab Paradise Body Mist – I liked this one a lot, and I will buy it again.

6 Valjean Labs Restore Facial Serum – a decent serum. Not groundbreaking though. I won’t repurchase it.

7 Boots No7 Total Renewal Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator – this is a very nice product. I will buy it again, no doubt.

8 Patisserie De Bain Mango Sorbet Hand Cream – a decent hand cream. Repurchase-worthy.

9 Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream – this is the US version of the cream, and I didn’t like it as much as the UK version. This one isn’t very moisturising, unfortunately.

10 Palmolive Aroma Therapy Absolute Relax – an all-time holy grail shower gel. I have a few more of these.

11 L’Oréal Elvive Colour Protect Caring Conditioner – a very nice conditioner! I have another shampoo and conditioner combo in my stash.

12 Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel – a nice shower gel. I can see myself buying it again.

November wasn’t a bad month for empties. I hope I can keep the streak going and finish the year with at least 12 more products (aiming for a few more, though…). Fingers crossed!

Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel, Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel and Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel. According the manufacturer, these shower gels are 97% natural, vegan and cruelty-free. 😍

Let’s start with Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel! Wow, what a wonderful surprise! This shower gel is simply amazing. It has a subtle lemony, soapy and bath-salty scent. Lovely! The formula is fantastic too. It feels cleansing but not drying, and it leaves my skin feeling nice and balanced. What’s not to love?

Onto Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel! Whilst this shower gel is nice too, I didn’t like that it hardly smells of anything. If you prefer shower gels which are almost scent-free, this is one to try as it’s cleansing but also gentle on the skin.

Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel and Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel are available as 400ml for £2.99. I paid £1.99 each (Save 1/3 offer at Boots).
