This is the final empties post I’ll be doing, sad times! I just don’t have it in my heart to do these posts anymore and if anything they feel like a chore to do at the best of times. If I really want to rave about a product then I’ll review it, or even have it mentioned on my favourites post. Also if I’ve used a product I really didn’t like I’ll probably do a “Monthly Dislikes” post, but we shall see!
For now let me tell you about my empties from last month, there are quite a few.
- Gillette Satin Care Shave Gel.
I’ve mentioned this before, if you would like to read more about it look here.
- Palmolive Lavender & Chamomile Caring & Aromatic Hand Wash.
I somewhat enjoyed this hand wash but not enough that I would buy it again. It smelt really nice and due to the ingredients had a lovely relaxing scent to it afterwards. This left my hands feeling soft and clean but not as soft as other hand washes have in the past, which was a little disappointing. I wouldn’t buy this again however as whilst the scent was nice, it was also a little on the overpowering side. If you love lavender and camomile then you’ll love this!
- Dolly’s Mixtures Shower Gel in Pina Colada.
I really enjoyed using this shower gel and for a £1 I’m pretty chuffed that I picked it up! These are from ASDA and come in variety of scents. They’re a strong scent and foam up beautifully when applied to a sponge. When I used this my skin felt lovely and soft, and smelt amazing! I love pina colada’s so anything that smells of it just makes me happy, as sad as that sounds. It just reminds me of summer evenings, last Christmas with my family, and how holidays should smell of. I will definitely pick up this scent again, but I would like to try one of the other scents first.
- T-Zone Clear Pore Anti-Bacterial Cleanser.
This is a great and basic cleanser which only costs a couple of quid, if that! I’ve already spoken about this in the past so I’m going to leave that link here.
- The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet.
I LOVE this moisturiser and I already have another pot of it which I’ve started to use! I’ve written a full review about this when I first bought it, which you can check out here. I’m really pleased that this lasted me three months, although I won’t lie, it has felt like a lot longer!
- Wilko Fruits Bath Pearls.
These bath pearls really did remind me of my childhood. My Mom used to take me to The Body Shop once a month and treat me to a couple of shower gels and some bath pearls. I loved using them in the bath and how they would explode inside. I never saw them for years until now and what a let down these are! I only used a couple, the rest of the packet were used by my boyfriend, who loved them! But he’d never experience bath pearls as a kid, so the child in him loved these I reckon. These were good, don’t get me wrong. They release different scented oils which leave the skin feeling a little greasy and moisturised, but I just didn’t like them. The nostalgia just wasn’t there 100% and I was pretty gutted because of it. BUT for a £1, I can’t complain.
- Wilko Fruits Bath Bomb in Blueberry & Grape and Lemon & Black Pepper.
I didn’t use these bath bombs, my boyfriend did but I just wanted to talk about these. I reviewed the Strawberry & Pomegranate bath bomb and it wasn’t the most positive of reviews. After using the bath bomb I was rather poorly and left with a urine infection and thrush. I do have sensitive skin, but I didn’t think that these would make me THAT ill! As my Mom bought me three of these bath bombs for £3 I had two left over to use up. My boyfriends been staying at mine the last couple of weeks in November and as he wanted a bath or two, I decided he might like to use these. He did! He doesn’t have sensitive skin like I do and therefore didn’t come across any issues. He said his skin felt soft and he did smell really nice after use. These two bath bombs smell amazing, much better than the Strawberry & Pomegranate one! I guess I just wish I could have used these myself, but alas I’m not risking getting ill again. It isn’t worth it. If you don’t suffer from sensitive skin, or want to get your boyfriend something nice for Christmas, definitely invest in these as they’re great for men and come in a variety of scents.
So that was my last empties post… Are you going to miss this series? If I get enough people saying they will, I may keep on doing it. I’m going to see how I feel.
What did you use up during November? Let me know in the comments down below.
Until next time, take care all and I hope December is going well for everyone so far.
