I know I’m a little behind on my empties post… By a month! The reason for this is because at the end of March I had all of one empty product in my empties bag and I thought it would be somewhat pointless writing up a post about it, so I left it and throughout April my empties bag has piled up high full of empty products!
So in the future if there isn’t an empties post at the start of each month, then don’t expect one until the month after as chances are there aren’t enough products for me to talk about.
In two months I’ve managed to gather eight products, which isn’t bad considering that I only had one to talk about last month!
- Oral-B Complete Mouthwash.
This mouthwash wasn’t one I had tried before and was a random but much-needed purchase I made whilst food shopping. It was on offer at £2, which aside from ASDA’s own branded mouthwashes, this was the cheapest one there! I’m quite a fan of Oral-B so I thought this was well worth the money and it really was! This is also an alcohol-free mouthwash which is what I always look for as it means it won’t be strong and pretty much burn the inside of my mouth away! I was going to pick this up again after it ran out but it was nearly £3 and as I’m quite poor, as well as trying to save up for my weekend away in June, I decided to opt for a mouthwash a little more in my price range. I’d recommend this mouthwash for sure and I can see me picking it up again in the future.
- N Spa Lime Hair & Body Wash.
I’ve only mentioned this in a favourites post once, which I’m really shocked by as quite frankly I LOVE this body wash and the more my boyfriend came over to my house, he soon discovered he loved it too. This is a gorgeous gel style body and hair wash that leaves you smelling like juicy limes, as well as waking you up that little bit too. The smell of it reminds me of the lime green fruit pastilles you get in the tubes, they’re my favourite! I used to love using this in the mornings and whilst I only used this as a body wash, my boyfriend used it to wash his hair and boy did his hair smell gorgeous all day long. I will be repurchasing this in the near future but for now I haven’t due to the fact I have so many shower gels to use up, as well as start using and also the fact I haven’t seen this for sale in ASDA for quite some time, which is a shame.
- The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel.
This is by far, of all time one of my favourite shower gels and since rediscovering it before Christmas just gone, I’m never letting it go out of my life EVER again! When I was a little girl my Mom would take me to The Body Shop once a month to have a sniff of all the yummy products and one day I stumbled across this shower gel, pleading with her to let me have a bottle and from that day on every month my Mom would take me to the shop so that I could pick up another bottle. This continued for quite a long time until suddenly, we stopped going and I soon forgot about the shower gel, until Christmas 2013. I got myself a £3 gift card from Glamour magazine and decided to pick up this shower gel to try out again and the smell is still the same as it was all those years ago when I was little. This shower gel is amazing and not long after buying this bottle I picked up a HUGE 750ml bottle for under £8! It’s a lovely fresh strawberry scent that is perfect for spring and summer, but of course I would use it all year around. Once again this has become another one of my shower gels that my boyfriend has fallen in love with and for his birthday in April I too bought him a huge 750ml bottle! He loves it (I hope anyway!) and I know I can steal a little when I stay over at his too. 😛 I wrote about this shower gel here if you wish to check it out BUT I’ve mentioned this shower gel so much that I recommend you just go and type it into the search bar if you wish to find anymore posts about it.
- Gillette Satin Care Sensitive Shave Gel with Olay.
I’ve mentioned this in a previous empties post, as well as one or two favourites posts too and I will say the same here as I will have said before, this shave gel is amazing! Especially if you have sensitive skin and very dry skin too. With an average, cheap shave gel/foam I find that my legs become irritated during and after shaving, as well as flakey and dry. But with this shave gel my legs look and feel gorgeous, with no irritation! If you wish to read about this shave gel more in-depth check out this post and this post. 🙂
- The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment.
I bought this night treatment back in October/November 2013 and at first I didn’t get on with it too well, but over time I began to enjoy using it in the evenings more and more, eventually using it in the morning too before work. It was a lovely light gel that sunk straight into the skin upon making contact with it. This was also refreshing to use as due to it being it gel it left my face feeling cooled down after a hot shower, as well as moisturised. I would buy this again for sure, but not just yet. I’m trying out some products at the moment and until I need to stock up on something new, this will remain a firm favourite to try once more in the future. This is for combination/oily skin but if you suffer from sensitive skin that I’d advice you stay away or be wary that this may irritate your skin at first or if you use often. At one point they wouldn’t irritate my sensitive skin, but then at another time it was kill me to apply this to my face! Just be wary before you buy, The Body Shop staff are lovely and if you ask them for some advice on skin care they’ll be more than happy to help you out!
- Sure Maximum Protection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Cream in Sensitive.
This is by far the best deodorant I have ever used and I can’t see me EVER replacing what I use with something else. I suffer from sweat quite badly and even in the cold winter months I’ll swear terribly! One of my best friends suffers with the same issue and told me about this deodorant last summer after she had and told me to get some ASAP! So on a shopping trip I picked up my first tube and since then I’ve used nothing else. It’s not cheap at £5.50 a tube but this lasts me ages and at that price it’s well worth it! I don’t sweat half as much as I used to now and that’s just a huge weight lifted off of my mind. If you sweat badly like myself I recommend this to you! I’ve written about it in more detail on a post here.
- Easy Nails Fast & Fruity Nail Polish Remover.
I don’t know who this nail polish is by (other than Easy Nails) but this is by far the best nail polish remover pot I have ever tried and that includes Bourjois too. For under a £1.00 you can pick up this little pot from Body Care and Home Bargains and it should last you a good 3-6 months, depending how often you wear and remove nail polish. This nail polish remover is acetone free and also has a light peach fragrance, which is lovely! Like all nail polish remover pots it contains the remover inside a thick lining of sponge and with a couple of twists of your finger the polish will be removed. Glitter polish isn’t as easy to remove as I find it is when I use the foil technique but that doesn’t bother me either way. If you want a remover that will take off your polish quick and easy, pick this bad boy up!
- Chapstick Lip Balm in Apple.
I love this lip balm so much that I’m surprised at myself as to why I haven’t picked up a replacement yet! It not only leaves you lips lovely and hydrated but it also makes them smell and taste of yummy fresh apples, which I love. Whenever I applied this to my lips I would often get asked, “Can you smell something? I can smell apples!” and it’s usually me and my lip balm that has caused this in the first place! Weird huh?! I can see me picking up another one of these later on today if not tomorrow as I just can’t live without this lip balm in my life anymore! I always make sure to have 2 of these, one to have in my handbag and one to keep at home on my bedside table. Some may think that’s a bit drastic, it’s just the norm to me.
So those were my empties for this month, what products did you use up? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time take care all and have a good weekend!
