March Empties Part 1 – Hair, Cleansing & Perfume

Another month, another set of empties, is it me or did March go really quickly? I’ve done well again in using up products this month – not as many as last month, but equally still too long for one post!


Tresemme Vibrant Naturals Shampoo – I spoke about this in my last favourites, this shampoo was really great at getting my hair feeling really clean and stopped any other product build up. It’s not very often that I find a shampoo which I can use without a conditioner all the time, but this was one!

Repurchase?: Yes, but currently using something else from my bathroom storage

Garnier Ultimate Blends The Shine Revitaliser Conditioner – I’ve featured this in an empties before, I like this conditioner a lot, its quite thin and easy to wash out, but does a good job of leaving hair smooth and manageable to work with. It smells delicious too, very spa like. I have a sneaky suspicision they are discontinuing this particular line of Ultimate Blends as I have seen it several times in clearance sections which is a shame, it’s the best from the line I’ve tried.

Repurchase?: I will if I can!

Original Source Blood Orange Daily Scrub Shower Gel: Another product that I have had in my empties previously, this smells lovely, if you like blood oranges this is amazing! A scrub which is good enough to use daily, it curbs my need to exfoliate frequently as this does a marvellous job with just being used regularly.

Repurchase? Yes, I definately will at some point


Garnier Micellar Water: I won’t rave about this too much as it’s been spoken about here many times on my blog in empties and otherwise. A great micellar water, my favourite other than bioderma, but this is way cheaper.

Repurchase?: Already have!

Organic Surge Gentle Cleansing Lotion: I picked this up at a staff sale at work as we have discontinued stocking Organic surge, I’ve tried some products which I’ve liked from OS, but this one was terrible. My personal dislike with products is when on the bottle it makes a claim, such as this ‘sweeping away make up’ – it categorically doesn’t. Panda eyes to be expected after using this cleanser, and even following up with micellar water after highlighted that it didn’t even get rid of foundation fully. Luckily I only spent 50p on this, but if you’re thinking of trying for its normal retail price, don’t.

Repurchase? Hell No!


Aussie Dry Shampoo Mega Instant: Favourite dry shampoo, talked about loads – and pretty much in every empties. Search the blog for more info, I won’t bore regular readers with talking about it, again!

Repurchase?: Yes, but I have one Dry Shampoo from Label M still on the go, and I’m using far less of it at the moment

Marc Jacobs Lola Perfume: Sad to see this leave my collection because it’s so pretty, whilst I liked the smell, I don’t love it as much as I used to. I’ve said previously I am allergic to MJ perfumes – which only came on about a year after building up a collection of them!

Repurchase? No

Part 2 will be up in a few days, keep your eyes peeled.

What have you used up this month?
