Empties – June 2021

Hi there! It’s the first of a new month (wow, halfway through the year already…), and this means that today’s post is about all the products I finished last month. As always, 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, tubes and tubs!

1 Agent Provocateur Fatale Eau De Parfum (50ml) – what a beautiful fragrance! I’ve already repurchased it – and I went for the big 100ml bottle this time!

2 Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel – this is a good face wash. But the strong yuzu scent put me off, and that’s why I won’t repurchase this face wash.

3 Anna Sui L’Amour Rose Versailles Eau De Parfum – this is a really nice fragrance, and I enjoyed wearing it very much, but I won’t buy it again.

4 Harmony Hair Indulgence Herbal Conditioner With Ginseng Extract – I loved this conditioner (and the matching shampoo) so much! I’m sad this line has been discontinued. 😢

5 Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel – I love this shower gel! Repurchase? Yes!

6 Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream – this shower gel is very good too, and I hope to buy it again soon.

7 Sanctuary Spa Heel Balm – a very good product. It’s too expensive, so I won’t buy it on its own, but I’d be delighted to find it in another Sanctuary Spa gift set.

8 Radox Mineral Therapy Muscle Soak Bath Salts – I really enjoyed these bath salts. I will buy them again!

9 Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot – these were good but not great. I might buy them again for half price, but I might not.

10 Westlab Cleansing Himalayan Salt – I like these a lot. Whilst these salts are unscented, they make my skin feel amazing. I enjoy using these on their own or mixed in with scented bath salts. I will buy these bath salts again, no doubt!

And this is everything for this month. Not a huge number of products, but finishing bath salts (those Westlab ones are 1kg each) frees up a lot of space under the sink! I expect a bit of skin care to finish next month, and at least 4 shower gels as well, so there should be more than 10 products in total.

Westlab Pink Gin Epsom & Himalayan Bathing Salts With Juniperberry, Pomegranate & Lime

Hi there! Today’s post is about these Westlab Pink Gin Epsom & Himalayan Bathing Salts With Juniperberry, Pomegranate & Lime which I found for half price at my local Tesco. You’re supposed to use 2-3 handfuls of these bath salts for a cleansing and revitalising bath.

I tried these bath salts recently, and I love them! I don’t drink alcohol, so I have no idea what pink gin is supposed to taste or smell like, but these bath salts have a strong and crisp pink lime fragrance which smells like summer. Delicious! These bath salts are a bit drying – not worse than a normal shower gel though, so I mix them with a good handful of Westlab’s Himalayan bath salts which are amazing for the skin.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these bath salts. Unfortunately, they’re a limited edition, but I’ll pick up another pack soon. If you’re interested, Westlab Pink Gin Epsom & Himalayan Bathing Salts With Juniperberry, Pomegranate & Lime are available as 1kg for £5.99. I paid £2.99.

Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot

Hi there! Today’s post is about these Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot. These bath salts promise to “restore calm and serenity amidst modern life”. You’re supposed to use 2-3 handfuls of these salts for a nice, relaxing bath.

I think these bath salts are good, but they’re not my favourites. I like the mix of epsom and Himalayan salts, and I’m happy that these bath salts have their own scent. However, the scent is quite strong, and it will linger in the bathroom for hours. I’m fine with the scent, but not everyone loves incense and bergamot. I also found these bath salts to be a bit drying.

In order to be able to enjoy these bath salts more, I’ll now mix these (half and half) with my regular Westlab Himalayan Salts which make my skin feel amazing. If you’re interested, Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot are available as 1kg for about £6. I paid £2.99 (half price offer at Boots).
