Another month, another empties post. I think I have come to the decision that in 2015 empties posts will be no more on my blog. It’s not that I don’t enjoy writing them, because I do but having to store empty bottles in my bathroom for a month is somewhat hoarding behaviour and I don’t like that personally. Hey if I finish off a product I REALLY liked then I might just mention that in my favourites or something, but either way having to collect a bag full of empty products just is annoying and it annoys my family too, so I can see next month being my last empties post.
But for now I shall tell you about what I used up throughout October!
- Superdrug Nail Polish Remover.
This is a bog standard nail polish remover and a very good one at that! I’ve had this a while and that’s because a little bit of this goes a long way so it’s taken me well over a year to get rid of it! I would have re-purchased this but at the time of realising I needed some new polish remover I ended up picking a cheap bottle up from Home Bargains. I would definitely buy this again as it was really good at a cheap price.
- N SPA Cherry Body Scrub.
I mentioned this in my September Favourites last month and I can safely say I would re-purchase this! It lasted ages, smelt gorgeous and left my skin feeling and looking gorgeous and soft! It wasn’t the best body scrub in the world but for the price I paid it did a really good job in my opinion. Check this out if you’re after a decent body scrub on a budget.
- The Body Shop Hand Cleanse Gel in Pink Grapefruit and Sweet Lemon.
I LOVE The Body Shops hand sanitizers, I’ve said this time and time again and I mean it! I’ve recently picked up 3 more as I just can’t live without having one of these in my back pack, nor my apron at work. They work really well to keep your hands germ free and smell gorgeous too. The Body Shop have these on 3 for 2 so I suggest you grab some bargains with these. One thing to say on these though is that Sweet Lemon was a limited edition scent from a few summers ago so you can’t pick this up anymore, gutted!
- Simple Kind To Skin Antibacterial Hand Wash.
I loved this hand wash and over the years my hands either loved it or hated it, so I’m glad they saw my side as to how amazing it is. It’s a gorgeous fresh mint hand wash that leaves your hands smelling, feeling and being clean and fresh. I was meant to re-purchase this but when I went to the shop to buy it, there weren’t any left so I was left buying something else. I will be picking this up again soon mind, I don’t think I can live without it now.
The reason for these three products having an edited image is that all I have left of the two Lush products are empty wrappers and due to wanting to get all the product I resulted in cutting up the Hand Food tube to nothing… Now that that is cleared up… 😛
- Lush Magic Bath Bomb.
I owned this bath bomb for an age, another purchase from my friend Mali (maliberrymakeup) and one I had saved and saved until I didn’t want to save anymore and a few baths later this was gone. It was an enjoyable bath bomb but not one I would buy again in a hurry. It had some sort of seaweed inside which grossed me out a tad and I had to scoop it all out of the bath water before I got in. It did seem to help my aching muscles though which was lovely and the blue bath water with red made it a purple shade which I adored. It’s a shame this is limited edition as it’s such a nice shaped bath bomb.
- Soap & Glory Hand Food hand cream.
I have had a love hate relationship with this hand cream from day one and whilst it was a lovely hand cream, it had a horrible scent which I really disliked. This kept my hands gorgeously soft throughout the months I used it and it was a staple for my back pack. Would I buy this again? Possibly if they change the scent WHICH I have noticed they have done with one of their Christmas sets. I pray that they bring out Hand Food in the Sugar Crush scent. I CAN ONLY PRAY!
- Lush Candy Mountain Bubble Bar.
I love this bubble bar so much and I finally used mine up from last Christmas, in preparation to buy another this year. This has the same scent as Creamy Candy Bubble Bar but it just looks that little prettier, don’t you think? This is a real girly bath bomb and also a real treat for myself when I fancy something sweet after a long day. The scent lingers on the skin for ages and I just can’t get enough. Will be buying some more by the end of Christmas to keep me through 2015.
So those were my empties, and they were also all spoken about short and sweet, I do apologise for that.
What products have you used up this month? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time, take care all and I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

You kept Magic for a long time – I’m surprised it still fizzed 😛 I actually bought the gift set with the Sugar Crush scented Hand Food and you NEED IT. It’s the best thing ever. I’ll be reviewing it soon! x x x
