Empties #6

Hello my lovelies,

I can’t believe my last post on here was a week ago!  I have a few excuses but I think it will be better if I just move on and try to catch up

I managed to use up quite a few products last month. I didn’t buy anything new which makes me even more proud of myself than using stuff up! I will be moving towards natural skin/body care so my challenge is to finish everything I own at the moment and then make more thoughtfull purchases. I will post an update on that soon!

Anyhoo… here are the empties:

* Perfecta Spa Chocolate and Coconut Body Scrub – the scent of this is unbelievable! I wanted to eat it every time I used it! Click here for my review.
* Superdrug Vitamin E Body Butter – I can’t say this saved my skin but it did help a lot to sooth the dryness during the winter months. It’s a very good price for the quality.
* Soap&Glory Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser – I really liked this product initially but it didn’t turn out to be that great in the long run. Consistency is thinner than my other hot cloth cleansers and it feels too slippery on the face. It removes all of the makeup very well but I didn’t notice any improvement in my skin’s condition like I did after using Liz Earle.
* Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub – very gentle and delicate scrub. Feels lovely on the skin and doesn’t cause any irritation. I personally don’t use normal scrubs like this anymore because I don’t really feel the need but if you do then this is a great product.
* Balance Me Hand Cream – for a review click here ;)
* Biosilk Therapy – awesome product for dry ends (of hair off course ;) ). I apply it when my hair is wet and it makes them easy to comb though plus soft and shiny after drying. Only tiny bit is needed so this little bottle lasts for ages.
* Cetaphil Skin Cleanser – I wasn’t impressed with the product and its ingredients. Review here.
* Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical – I love when my hair smells of coconuts and I am a blond so I don’t mind it leaving a bit of whiteness on the hair. This stuff is a savior for not a morning person like me ;)
* Bioderma Solution Micellaire – another bottle gone! I love this stuff and couldn’t recommend it more. Thankfully I am going to Poland for a few days so will get back ups. If you’d like to know more about Sensibio H2O click here.
* Sanctuary Body Scrub – meah…. To gentle to be a scrub and too rough to be a daily shower gel :/
* Beauty Formulas Feminine wash – to be honest I don’t really think this is any different to a normal body wash. It has sulfates, fragrance, colors and alcohol as ingredients so it’s not gentler than any random shower gel!

When I looked back at my product use up posts I noticed two things:

1) I don’t use up any makeup items – I wonder if I ever'll manage to do that.
2) I can be quite harsh on some products. I hope that doesn’t offend anyone. I am quite demanding and particular of what I like and expect.

Hope you all had a great weekend and I wish you great week darlings.

  1. I wanna try Batiste! It must be great if you used it up. Lol :)

    1. oh yes! It saved my head looking like a greas ball when I couldn't be bothered to wash my hair lol
      Would recommned the brunnete ne if you have dark hair thou

  2. I did not like the Sanctuary scrub at all. Not keen on the fragrance and my tube kept getting blocked with the grains. You've gotten through loads!

    1. I wasn't impressed either. I got it in the set and definitely won't be buying the ful size.

  3. That Perfect Spa body scrub sounds yummy. Really want to try that out now. I love reading the final words on products in empties posts. They're great forms of review. I don't think it's too harsh at all. :) x

    1. It honestly is the best smelling shower product I ever tried :) It's also a very good scrub. Leaves the leyer of softness on the skin :)
      I'm glad you think it's not harsh :) xxx

  4. I'm not offended, and I definitely don't think you're too harsh! It's easy to be disappointed with something--especially when it promises so much! It's definitely hard to use up makeup products! Happy to have you back blogging again! Missed you!!!

    1. I missed it too! You are totally right about big promises! Some brands claim that their products can save our lifes and it just gets too hyped up in the end.
