April Empties!

So i've decided that i'm going to re-decorate my bedroom in May/June which means i'm trying to use up as many products as I can before then! This month I managed to use up a good amount of products so lets get straight into it!
First up bath products, starting with the Botanics Rejuvenating Bath Elixir, this was an amazing product in Winter because of the spicey scent. I loved it so much however I don't think I will repurchase until the colder months. Next is the Soap & Glory The Breakfast Scrub, this stuff is just amazing, it's definitely my favourite scrub and it smells of maple syrup. Definitely will be repurchasing soon!
Onto body products, first being one of my favourite gradual tanners; the Garnier Summer Body, this stuff smells like apricots and gives you a lovely natural tan. Next is The Body Shop Vanilla Body Butter Duo, this smelt lovely and I loved the fact it was half a body butter and half a body lotion, definitely will consider repurchasing this. Next I have the Next Paradise Perfume, I love the scent of this and they've recently brought it back so i've repurchased it and i'm already onto my next bottle!
Next up haircare, starting with the Phil Smith Xtreme Style Xtravagant Hairspray (silly name!) this had a lovely sweet scent and was a great light hold hairspray. I do like this I might pick it up if I find it on offer. Next is the Clynol Wonder 10* this claims to be a 1 treatment with 10 benefits and I really did find it helped with managing my hair after washing it. I'm currently using a similar product which I prefer so I don't think I will be repurchasing it. Finally I have the Tresemme Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo, this was a pretty decent dry shampoo but it is a little pricey in my eyes but I might repurchase it if it's on offer.
Only one make-up product this month which is the Rimmel Match Perfection 2 in 1 Concealer, this was a pretty average concealer which did what it is meant to but isn't amazing. For that reason I won't be repurchasing it. 
Finally onto skincare, first being Hydraluron, I do really love this stuff! I haven't seen any huge differences in my skin but I did find my skin felt drier when I didn't use it. I have repurchased it and I think I will keep on purchasing it. Next are the Soap & Glory Off Your Face Wipes, I got this is a big set last Christmas and i'm really not a fan of face wipes but I really didn't like this. Mainly due to the smell because it's so overpowering and made my eyes sting. Definitely won't repurchase these! Next are two product I did like, first being the REN ClearCalm 3 Anti-Blemish Treatment Mask, this was great to use when my skin was breaking out like crazy. I did really like it, but I prefer the Origins mask which is similar so I don't think I will repurchase it. Finally there is the Vichy Normaderm Micellar Solution 3 in 1. I really liked this product because it was so gentle on my skin because it is alcohol free. I definitely will be repurchasing it in the future when i've used up a few other toners. 

So that's my empties for this month, as I said i'm on a mission to use up lots of products so expect more empties over the next few months!

  1. I also agree about the Rimmel concealer. It is pretty good but not amazing. It leaves a grayish cast on me. x

  2. I couldn't wait to finish my Vanilla body butter (finished it last week) as it made me sneeze and I hated the lotion side! So glad it's gone aha x
