May Empties!

This month I finally redecorated my bedroom which meant I had to move all of my things out of my room and back in again afterwards. So I took it upon myself to try extra hard to use up some products this month, and guess what it worked! Maybe I should decorate my room more often...

First up shower gels. Yes I managed to use up three shower gels this month! First up being the Soap & Glory Clean On Me, I got this in a set at Christmas and to be honest it isn't my favourite. I did manage to use this up as a bubble bath which worked pretty well, however I will not be repurchasing this. Next is another Soap & Glory product (there is a theme developing here) the Sugar Crush Body Wash, now I do love this scent and product and would definitely consider repurchasing it in the future. Finally I have the Imperial Leather Precious Body Wash Gel, I used this when shaving my legs and it was a nice scent however I do prefer the lime scent they do and have repurchased that.

Onto body products, first up the Soap & Glory Smoothie Body Milk (review), I really enjoyed this product. It was moisturising, smelt lovely and was great to use in Winter. I would consider repurchasing this. Next is the Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Soothing Gel Cream in Peach. I love these body lotions so much and this one smelt lovely. I will always have one of these in my stash. Next I have some foot creams, first being the Palmers Cocoa Butter Concentrated Cream. I rediscovered this practically empty when sorting out my room, from memory this was a really good, thick cream which was great for any dry skin. I would consider repurchasing it. Next is the Soap & Glory Heel Genius (review), I really like this foot cream because it really moisturising but doesn't feel heavy on the skin. I would consider repurchasing this. Lastly I have a sample of the REN Vetiver V7 Hand and Body Cream, this product smelt lovely absorbed quickly into the skin. I don't think I would repurchase it because I have so many other creams on the go at the moment.

I've managed to use up a few skincare bits this month, first being the REN ClearCalm3 Replenishing Night Serum (review), I love this serum because it is light on the skin and I really do think it helps with any blemishes I have. I have already repurchased this. Next up is the Nelsons Pure & Clear Purifying Daily Facial Wash (review). I really enjoyed this face wash, it seemed to help with any blemishes I had and wasn't drying to the skin. I would repurchase this. Next I have the Liz Earle Skin Repair Light Moisturiser for Combination/Oily Skin. First time I tried this I liked it, then I found it wasn't doing enough for my skin so I stopped using it. In trying to use things up I started using it again and my some what clear skin started breaking out but not just is small whiteheads, oh no big under the skin blemishes which are a pain to get rid of. I stopped using it and I stopped breaking out. I have about a third left but i'm just going to throw it out now, as you can guess I will not be repurchasing this again.

Onto some samples, first being the La Roche Posay Effaclar K, now here's a cream that I love and is great for oily skin. I've purchased the full size a few times and always go back to it. Next is the REN Active 7 Radiant Eye Gel, I used this on holiday last year and still had a little bit left. I enjoyed using it and it was cooling under the eyes but nothing amazing so I would not repurchase it. Finally I have the Origins Super Spot Remover (review), I dug this back out to help get rid of the under the skin blemishes the Liz Earle cream gave me. This stuff really does work but can be a tad drying, however I have repurchased this and will probably continue to do so. This bottle also seems to last a long time too.

Only one make-up product this month but it's a good one, the Revlon Growluscious Mascara. This is definitely one of the best mascaras i've tried and I always seem to go back to it. I like the way it makes my lashes look and the shade Blackest Black is very black which I love. I will repurchase this once i've used some other mascaras up.

So that's this months empites, woo that was a lot of products! A lot of Soap & Glory ones at that too! I didn't plan on using up so many S&G products it just seemed to happen!

Have you used up any favourites this month?

  2. Wow! You used up a lot this month! I always find I use more bath/skincare type products than I do makeup.
    This month I used up the Lush Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar which I'm really sad about cause they don't make it anymore! <3
