So it's time for another Empties post. I've said this before but Empties posts are one of my favourites to read and fingers crossed you enjoy them too. I have quite a few this time so I've bypassed the description for some and lumped a few together.
1. Dove Triple Moisturising Beauty Care Body Wash - £2.25 (currently 2 for £3 in Asda)
This is lovely! It is thick, creamy and smells clean. It leaves my skin feeling soft too so all in all it does a fantastic job. It was a welcome addition to the bathroom shelf.
Repurchase? I have lots of body washes to use so probably not just yet.
2. Palmolive Bergamot & Verbena handwash - £2 (currently half price in Tesco).
I fully understand this is quite a weird addition. Bloggers probably finish handwash all the time but don't feel the need to showcase it. However, I was really impressed by this. It smells gorgeous, looks quite cool and leaves my hands clean.
Repurchase? Handwash is the parents department. I'll have to ask them.
3. Exfoliators x4 - St Ives, Tesco & No7.
Other than the Tesco clean skin face scrub, I enjoyed using them all. The Tesco one was quite rough on the skin and is definitely not for the sensitive. The St Ives heated one I have raved about before on my blog & is definitely worth a go for those looking for a new scrub. The mini No7 did it's job and the St Ives Apricot Scrub was fantastic! I used it on my face and body and it did a great job of 'getting in there'.
Repurchase? I have a few to get through yet but I would go back to either of the St Ives products.
4. Skittles Strawberry candle - £1
This smells yummy and fruity. Great find in the £1 shop.
5. Mascara x2 - Maybelline Colossal & Rimmel Lash Maxxx
I have reviewed the Maybelline on my blog before and I was quite a fan. The Rimmel I found in my mums make up box so I thought I'd pop it in. It has a thin comb brush and I have gotten use to the fatter wands now.
Repurchase? I have just opened a new tube of mascara which I will review soon. I like to try new ones.
6. Green People no scent hand & body lotion sample - 30ml for £4.50/200ml for £18.95.
Funny story, because of the applicator I originally thought this was a lip balm. Awkward. I wasn't a huge fan of this because of the scent. I guess because they didn't add any perfumed nasties (91% organic) it left it with a weird 'non scent'. It did a decent job at moisturising my hands and had an almost gel like consistency.
Repurchase? No. Using soap & glory hand food at the moment.
7. Perfumes x2 - Lancome/Thierry Mugler
Lancome La vie est belle EDP - A nice sweet scent floral scent.
Thierry Mugler Womanity - Such a unique fruity crisp feminine scent. The sample didn't spray properly so I didn't get much use but loved the scent.
Repurchase? I have lots of perfumes to finish up so wouldn't look into buying any just yet.
8. Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil - £18.95 for 100ml
I received this sample in my LiveBloggers goody bag. Although I liked the fresh scent, it didn't moisturise as I was hoping & of course it is too small a sample to notice any difference regarding cellulite. I really enjoy using the Weleda pomegranate regenerating oil.
9. Primark fragrance free eye make-up remover pads
I didn't use this on my eyes but used it for spot cleaning of my brushes or little things that needed a wipe. They were thick, wet and did the job.
Now for the mechanical twist...
10. Tresonics facial cleansing & massaging system - £37.50 on QVC.
Now technically this isn't empty or unusable, but I personally do not use it any longer. Back when I was intrigued by the Clarisonic this was an inexpensive alternative I found for £20 on ebay. Turns out I'm quite old school when it comes to exfoliating but if anybody is interested in a thorough review then be sure to let me know.
Hope you enjoyed this post ladies. I've already started collecting for my next Empties post. Yippee!
Till next time...Toodles! :)
