Alright so I know I didn’t do an empties post for July, but that’s because I only had one thing I would have been able to talk about, so it would have been pretty pointless. However throughout August I have been flooded with empty products, so much so that my purple Liberty bag is overflowing with empty products! So finally I bring to you an empties post, I hope it was worth the wait! :’)
- Dettol Camomile Comforting Hand Wash with E45.
Like all the other Dettol hand washes I have mentioned before on my blog, I really did enjoy this one. This was a bargain at a £1 and I thought I’d give it a go, as it sounded just as good as the honey one that I use so much. It was lovely to use and I was sad when it came to the end of the bottle. It reminded me of Johnson’s bedtime baby bath with the camomile scent, which lasted ages on my hands. I’d buy this again for sure!
- Carex Complete Bubble Gum Hand Wash.
This was really fun to use and was an awesome bright blue colour, just like bubblegum! Although this did smell amazing the smell did get a little boring and tacky smelling after a few weeks and I actually couldn’t wait to finish it after a while. I’m unsure if it was this or something else but after a few weeks of use my hands started to be terribly dry, and since this coming to its last use a week ago my hands now aren’t as dry. I would pick this up again, don’t get me wrong but maybe as a treat as whilst it was only a £1, it was a bit too artificial smelling for my liking. I recommend people to try this who have children mind, as it was lovely nonetheless.
- The Body Shop Hand Cleanse Gel in Strawberry (mentioned here and here).
This is a lovely hand sanitizer and providing if I’m on a budget or not is by far one of my favourites! At work, at home and amongst friends and family I get nothing but compliments on this, how gorgeous it smells, and even people asking if they can nab a blob off me. These don’t break the bank to buy and last ages in my opinion! I like to keep them in my handbag for at work and on the go, as you never know when you may need some.
- The Body Shop Early-Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel (mentioned here).
I was extremely sad to see the end of this (especially considering that I’m saving money and can’t buy anymore yet) because of the fact that it just smells amazing, plus I think it’s limited edition (I hope not!). I bought this for mine and my boyfriends long weekend in Bristol and it really does remind me of there whenever I smell it. This smells of delicious, ripe raspberries, perfect for summer! This foamed up lovely, left my skin feeling soft and gorgeous as well as smelling amazing too! I will buy this again in the future, as well as for my boyfriend who probably loved it more than I did!
- Gillette Satin Care Shave Gel.
I’ve mentioned this product before, if you would like to read more about it look here.
- Colgate Plax Mouthwash in Soft Mint.
Like all mouthwashes, this did a good job and one I expected it to. Since this has run out I haven’t re-purchased this one, nor have I purchased any in particular. This was nice to use and made my mouth feel nice and fresh whenever I used it.
- T-Zone Clear Pore Anti-Bacterial Cleanser.
I love this cleanser so much that I re-purchased it well before it ran out and that is what I am currently using. This cleanser doesn’t cost much, less than £2.00 infact and is available from both Home Bargains and Body Care if you would like to pick it up. This smells gorgeous, just like tea tree and really does feel like it works when applied to the skin. I use this everyday and I can safely say that I have fallen in love with it. I used to use the T-Zone range as a teenager and I can say that it still works the same now as it used to back in the day! Try out their products if you fancy trying something new and affordable.
This was a find in a pound shop, for obviously a £1. I bought it after one of my closest friends picked it up too as it reminded me of one of my more expensive perfumes. I ended up using this for work and I couldn’t wait to see the back of it! Yes it’s cheap and cheerful but also really crap! I don’t recommend this unless you want something to spritz after the gym, work, for your car, etc.
- Oral-B 3D White in Brilliance.
I LOVE this toothpaste and I can’t believe this is the first time that I’m mentioning this product on my blog! Since this came out it’s all I use and I think this toothpaste has been out for 2-3 years now, which is a very long time! This toothpaste isn’t cheap but I recently discovered that you can pick this up really cheap in Home Bargains, which I’m really pleased about. I recommend this toothpaste if you want to have clean and pearly white teeth!
So those were my empties for August! Whether or not I have any products to talk about this time next month or not, I’m unsure, we shall wait and see!
What products did you use up throughout August? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.
Until next time, take care all and I hope September is going well for you all so far.
