It seemed like my Empties box was filling up fast this month, and was at the point where it was beginning to overflow, I thought I’d have to split the post up into a few posts, but there just a few chunky items that were misleadingly filling out the box making it look fuller than what it was. I had a few other items which I thought I was going to finish up this month, I decided I probably wasn’t going quite to finish them – and typically on the last day of the month (I photographed these a few days before so I could get it up promptly at the start of the month) I did manage it.
Radox Replenishing and Antibacterial Hand Soap
I’m so glad this one is empty, why does it take so long to finish up hand soaps? This one Ben picked out when he was in charge of the food shop one week. I didn’t find this replenishing, but it’s nice that it’s antibacterial, there was nothing wrong with the scent, although I definitely think this was a ‘man choice’, but I was just fed up of the sight of the bottle and how it smelled by the end of it.
Repurchase: I wouldn’t chose it, but Ben might do again
Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint Handcream
Stashy kindly sent me this as an extra when I was one of the winners in her favourite things giveaway last year. Knowing that I’m the head of the UK “WHY IS THERE STILL NO BBW” here committee. I kept this ’til Christmas time when it came in as my go for on the go, as the peppermint was sweet like Candy Canes. The only thing I didn’t like about this was that the packaging started rubbing off so it became a little messy and flaky, I ended up leaving it on my desk at work. No one could work out where the minty smell kept coming from and I liked making people think they were crazy by not saying anything.
Repurchase? “WHY IS THERE STILL NO BBW”
The Body Shop Glazed Apple Body Scrub (review)
I ended up with lots of different body scrubs in the shower recently after deciding that this wasn’t my favourite and I had to force myself to put those away and use this one up and get it gone as the tub was starting to look a bit grubby. A very light exfoliator, wasn’t harsh enough even for me – smelt lovely but just not effective enough.
Repurchase: Can’t as LE, but wouldn’t anyway.
L’Occitaine Amande Shower Oil
Bloody love this stuff, and I’m really surprised that I managed to stretch out using this sample for two months since it arrived in my December My Little Box. I’d love to repurchase this, but it’s not in the pre-wedding budget to do so right now, but I will gratefully have a forth sample size of it if any beauty boxes would like to include it.. I love how this shower oil feels on the skin, it’s luxurious and the scent also smells good enough to eat.
Repurchase: One day yes, but for now praying it magically appears on my doorstep!
Seche Vite Topcoat
I love the high shine that Seche Vite Gives, I love how fast Seche Vite dries. I do not like that the brush does not reach the bottom of the bottle easily and wastes about a third of the product with every bottle, and I do not like that it does goopy after a short while.
Repurchase? Not for a while at least, have discovered I’ve been stockpiling topcoats on a recent polish organisation, and I’m not sure I love it as much as I used to, we’re on a mutually agreed breakup for now.
Ciate Mint Choc Pot
I bought this in TK Maxx and how disappointed I was. I’m not a big fan of Ciate Polishes so decided to try their nail care, unfortunately this doesn’t smell of mint chocolate it smells of sweet nail polish remover, and the sponge was pretty dry from the get go, I can’t have used this more than 5 times before it no longer had the ability to remove polish any more.
Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer (review)
If you saw my Instagram Stories when I was packing my hen party makeup, you would have seen me saying I’ve had this for ages, and it just doesn’t end. That was the magic curse as the gift that kept giving, ceremoniously stopped. Probably my favourite concealer ever, this is the lightest shade which I use under the eyes, but I plan on getting the darker one to try for concealing spots as well. The only makeup product I used up this month, surprising.
Repurchase: Yes, if I don’t have a new one by the end of the week I’ll be surprised
Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo
Between using the Salon Science line this has been my go to, I haven’t used this in years and I picked it up at the latter end of last year after using it at my Mums and remembering how much I used to love it. Smells great, makes my hair feel really soft.
Repurchase? Already have
Tresemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner
This was another one of Ben’s grocery shopping choices, quite liked this one from Tresemme, I found the Keratin smoothed over split ends better.
Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo
My all time favourite Dry Shampoo, completely clear, leaves no residue & hair smelling fresh. This is in every other empties so I won’t declare my love for it for a twentieth time.
Repurchase: I currently have 4 dry shampoos in the cupboard, so no, but as soon as I need one, yes!
Batiste Stylist Hold Me Hairspray
I received this in a My Little Box in the last six months of this year, I forced myself to use this up over my favourite one from Schwarzkopf. The effect of this wasn’t too bad, but .
Boots Ingredients Lotus Flower and Tiger Lily Sheet Face Mask (review)
I quite enjoyed this new addition from Boots, and is an easy way to get hold of a slice of Korean Skincare on the highstreet at an inexpensive price.
Repurchase: I’ll probably try another from the range for my face mask friday series, but rarely repuchase masks because of that reason!
My Little Beauty Moonrise Makeup Remover
Received in November last year’s MLB, I’m surprised I got through this, at one point I did debate squeezing it down the sink. I didn’t find this did anything for me, pegged as a makeup remover it did nothing for me but smell nice and taste sweet. Left me with massive black panda eyes and just generally not looking or feeling like it had removed any drop of makeup. Strangely my friend Joyce, is getting on well with it!
Repurchase: Can’t, but no anyway.
Tony Moly Tea Tree Mask (review)
This is to represent the tea tree mask the Makegolli one was in last month’s empties! Ben threw away my packet whilst I was on the hen do! Reviewed recently so won’t go too indepth, but I did like this mask I found it calming on my skin.
Garnier Micellar Extra Gentle Cleansing Wipes
I was feeling lazy in January so picked these up to keep on my bedside table as I kept being really unbothered to take off my makeup at night and kept just collapsing. These are the first Micellar dosed wipes I’ve tried and I liked them, I thought they were a little dry though so ran through the packet pretty quickly as I was needing to use more than one at a time!
That’s this month’s empties done and dusted… How much did you use up in February?
