Empties – May 2020

Hi there! I hope you had a great start into the week and into June. 😘 Today’s post is about all the products I managed to finish in May. I’ve done really well, and here’s everything I said goodbye to.

1 Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette – this is an amazing fragrance! I have a few more bottles in my stash!

2 Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist – another lovely fragance from Yves Rocher. Yes, I have a few more of these too!

3 Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion – one of my of favourite body moisturisers. I will buy it again, no doubt!

4 Manhattan Tasty Lips Lipgloss American Grapefruit – a truly amazing lipgloss. If this one hadn’t been discontinued, I’d pick it up again.

5 Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution – this is the best pore-unclogging and brightening product I’ve never used. I have a few more of these in my stash!

6 Boots The Garden Collection Rose Body Lotion (travel size) – this is a lovely non-greasy body lotion which I’d be happy to buy again.

7 Smack Beauty Sleeping Beauty Firming Night Cream – this is an OK night cream. I wouldn’t buy it again as there’s much better stuff out there.

8 Nivea Clay Fresh Deep Cleansing Shower Ginger & Basil Scent – a nice shower gel. I think I’ll buy it again!

9 Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Conditioner – one of the best conditioners I’ve ever used. I’ve already repurchased it (+ the matching shampoo).

10 Radox Scent Touch Feel Positive – this is a nice shower gel that I might buy again.

11 Rightguard Shower + Oils Purple Orchid – I love this shower gel! I’ll buy it again next time I see it.

12 Radox Eastern Spirit – this is a really nice bath gel. Unfortunately, this fragrance has been discontinued.

13 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. I have a few more bottles in my stash.

14 Burberry Brit Red – I loved this fragrance! Too bad it was a limited edition…

15 Primark PS… Pink Grapefruit Overnight Jelly Mask – this is a decent jelly moisturiser, but I won’t buy it again as there’s better stuff waiting to be used!

I also used a few single-use face masks. If you’d like to know which masks I tried recently, click here. I’m very happy with what I finished this month. I hope June will be amazing for empties too!

Thanks for stopping by! 🥰

April Beauty Awards

Hi there! Welcome to Mrs Strawberry Blonde’s April Beauty Awards. Well, this post is about my favourite products in April. I chose my favourites from all the products I reviewed this month. I’m starting with the TOP 3, but there are quite few honourable mentions too!

3rd place – Palmolive Aroma Moments So Relaxed Bath Foam
Runner-Up – Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist

Palmolive’s So Relaxed is one of my all-time favourite shower and bath products. The fragrance is outstanding!
Yves Rocher did a fantastic job with their Monoï body mist. I’m glad I have several bottles in my stash!

WINNER – Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream

Scinic’s eye cream is one of my two all-time favourite eye creams. It’s simply marvellous!

Onto the honourable mentions! Alberto Balsam’s Zesty Orange Shampoo & Conditioner are amazing! They came really close to getting into my top 3! Primark’s PS… Charcoal. Detox, Purify & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Mask was lovely, and Primark’s PS… Prep & Perfect Glow Priming Sheet Mask was great too!

I was impressed with Beauty Formulas’ Radiate & Glow Facial Mask, and I’m enjoying Body-X’s Twilight Amber Shower Gel and Rightguard’s Shower + Oils Purple Orchid Shower Gel.

Wow, those are lots of great products! I didn’t think it would be this many, but those cheap face masks and shower gels were unexpectedly lovely! Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of them? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for stopping by! 😘

Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist.

This body mist contains a number of moisturising ingredients, such as glycerin, castor oil and aloe leaf juice. It also contains flower extracts of exotic Tahitian gardenias!

I’ve been using this body mist on and off for a little while, and I love it! It has the most wonderful gardenia fragrance one could imagine. It’s warm, creamy, but it also feels transparent. This body mist is lovely as a spring and summer fragrance!

This body mist is also lightly hydrating. I like to spray it down my back – and it makes my skin super soft!

If you’re interested, Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist is available as 125ml. I paid £10.99 for a pack of 3 bottles (special offer before Yves Rocher closed its UK online shop).
