More empty products for you today. I have no idea why us beauty fans like to look at other peoples trash like this , but it is seriously great fun! haha! I didn't think I had used as much up as been mixing up a lot of late so didn't think I was getting through very much. How wrong I was!
|Now you must know me by now! The Dove deodorant( this time in Pomegranate & lemon gerbera scent) and Batiste dry shampoo ( usually in tropical) are ALWAYS In my empties. I long time fan of both & that will continue for the time being.|
|This shower gel from I Love Cosmetics ( in mango & papaya) seemed to last me forever. In the beginning I loved it as these are my favourite kind of scents & it washed me well. I even featured it in a favourites. Over time though I grew so bored with it & was actually very pleased to finish it.|
|This Clarins Eau De Jardins Uplifting Shower Gel is a 10ml sample I received after an order I placed online. I did choose it myself as I am always keen to try new scents etc. Wasn't for me though at all. I felt it was quite a masculine scent & did not do anything for me all.|
|Nspa body butter in Mango was quite a pleasant surprise. Bought for me for Xmas along with the Raspberry one by hubby from Asda , I was not sure how good they would be. It is lovely. Not a strong fragrance but it does last a while on the skin. I don't think it would be good for anyone who has to be out quick in the mornings because it takes a few mins longer than my almost instant dry Body Shop ones but overall I am impressed. I have only just started the raspberry one & as I am using 3/4 different brands it will be a while before I use it up. I did spot they do a Pink Grapefruit one too , which I have an obsession with so think I may have to cheekily buy that on a next Asda trip even though I have body creams coming out my ears!|
|Now this... this I just love. I would love for Clarins to create this scent from the One Step Cleanser ( Orange Extract) into a room refresher or better still a car air freshener. It is divine. A fantastic one step cleanser & the scent stays with me all night long ( I only use of an evening.) I do have another bottle ready to go but I am saving it & using up my No7 Cleansing water instead.|
|This was another surprise for me. The whole beauty world seems to be obsessed with the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm & usually this can be a clue to me that it is probably a bit over hyped. So I treated myself to a little gift set from Feel Unique which included a 15ml jar. Well in the beginning I couldn't see what the fuss was about. It was scary to start as I was convinced I would have a horrid greasy face. Thankfully despite my reservations it was perfectly fine .I was only using in the morning ( the smell of Moringa is lovely though so this was the only plus at that point) until one evening I was feeling a bit lazy & took my whole make-up off ( eyes included ) & I am now hooked! Removed it to the point where there was hardly a trace left on my skin & made my skin feel totally amazing. I am gutted it is used up but will have to wait to buy the full version as I am currently using the Clinique "Take The Day Off" cleansing balm instead (jury out still) & plus the hefty price tag ( a whopping £36 ) make it a not so quick repurchase.|
|I am not enamored with the No7 Toner at all really. I bought it last year in one of their 3 for 2 plus £5 off voucher deals. Really I love my Clinique Clarifying Lotion (2) but this was the cheaper option at the time. I think I still have 2 more bottles so not sure if I will use them or sell them on yet. I'll think on it.|
|This Clarifying Lotion from Clinique came in a goodie bag. It is the wrong one for me though so unfair to say any thing bad as it was just not for my skin type at all ( number 1 if for very dry to dry.)|
|Another present in my stocking from hubby. I would probably not have purchased the Simple "Kind To Eyes" eye make-up remover myself otherwise. However , it does a nice job. Nice & gentle & gets off even the hardest to remove mascara quite well. With a price tag of £3.25 I would happily buy it again when the need arises.|
|I bought the Clarins Eye Contour Balm in error, meaning to buy the Eye Contour GEL. Easy mistake with a brain like mine! I can't say the balm did much. I did cut it open to use every last drop as being mid ban at the time I needed to keep it as long as I could. I did not notice it doing anything different to cheaper eye creams anyway. So another non re-purchase there.|
|I bought the Body Shop eau de toilette in Moringa as an alternative to a body spray & to refrain from using too much perfume. It was OK. It certainly didn't hold the scent like the body mist I used. I would not buy this again.|
|Bath & Body Works have been on my to try list for ages. I have used a couple of shower gels ( hits with me ) & I decided to give the anti-bac gel a try too. Mine is in Caribbean Escape. It's OK. Whilst the gel does a good enough job of sinking in & doing that job OK, I found the alcohol content ( 68%) just totally over powered the scent & so I was having to wash my hands anyway. I do have another one called "Tuscan Vineyard" I am using which thankfully does NOT have the same overpowering scent. I won't bother buying them again. They were just to try & the price of them is not worth it.|
|last in this post we have the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara. Pretty much dried out but pretty much empty too so in the bin it goes. I did love it but have no plans to buy it again at this point.|
So, well done if you made it to the end of this post. Leave links to your product empties posts/ you tube vids.
