April Empties!

This month has been spent surrounded by notes and books finishing off my dissertation and essays. To say i've not had as much time to use products as normal i've still managed to finish a few bits that I have to share today.
So i've finished two Origins products this month. First being the Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment, this is my third pot of this stuff so it is definitely a favourite. It is perfect for oily skin that is a little dehydrated as it packs in the moisture without feeling heavy on the skin. I will definitely be picking this up again. The other being the Zero Oil Cleanser, this had a lovely minty scent to it and although it removed excess oil really well it didn't feel the skin leaving striped. I would get this again but there are other, cheaper cleanser I like just as much. Finally for skincare I finished The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream, this was hydrating but not heavy around the eye area. I would definitely pick this up again. 
I've finished two mascaras this month. The first being a sample of the Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Holiday Mascara, this was okay, I found it dried up really quickly so I wouldn't get it again. The other being the L'oreal Miss Manga Mega Volume Mascara, this was the opposite in that it is a fairly wet formula which made it hard to apply. I liked the effect it gave but definitely not a favourite so I wouldn't get this again.
Only one haircare product this month, which is the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave In Conditioner, I really love this stuff as it feels like it adds moisture to the hair without making it feel weighed down. It's seems to be hard to track down these days but I will pick up another bottle soon. (if I can find one!).
A bit of a boring one, the Vaseline Active Fresh deodorant, this is my favourite one and I always repurchase it as it does the job. Next the Cutex Nourishing Nail Polish Remover, this was surprisingly good. It removed polish well and didn't dry out my nails. I've already re-purchased this. Finally I have the Boots Natural Collection Vanilla Body Spray. This is a lovely scent and is so affordable. It is more of a Winter scent so I will repurchase it later in the year. 
Another Winter product i've finished is the Treacle Moon Warm Cinnamon Nights Bath and Shower Gel. This had a lovely warming scent to it which was so nice in the colder months. Again this is a product I will pick up again in the Winter. The last product is the Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter, I always seem to end up with this due to getting them in gift sets. It is a nice product but I do get a bit tired of the scent. I wouldn't purchase it again for that reason. 

So those are this months empties. Not as many as normal but a few favourites. Have you used up any favourite products this month?

  1. Lots of great stuff - I love the origins make a difference range so much! I use the really rich cream, it's so good for my drier skin. My boyfriend uses the zero oil face wash :)

    I use that Dove spray every day! I hope I can find it when I run out!
