December Bodycare Empties

My second empties post is all about finished bodycare products with one slight mistake. My previous post was about haircare empties and somehow I managed to miss out one of the products so I have included it here and I will start the post with it:

Tresemme Botanique Hydrating Mist – A really nice hair detangler slash conditioner. I highly enjoyed using it, it’s light on your hair, has a great scent and works well as a detangler. I would definitely get it again especially when on an offer.

Vichy Ideal Soleil After-Sun – It’s a very interesting after sun oil which is made to be used on a dry skin or in a shower. I got it because I am not the biggest fan of spending a lot of time applying moisturisers. I liked using this more as the in shower item, it did leave my skin nicely moisturised and conditioned especially after being in the sun. I have used it all up over summer and summer holidays. As an after sun on a dry skin I found it to be too heavy for my liking. I think I would get this next time when we get towards summer.

The Body Shop Glazed Apple Scrub – I had this from last year and took a long time to use it up. I’m not a big scrubs user… I liked using this purely for the scent and I think I should get something else from this range again until it is gone for a year.

Dove Maximum Protection Deodorant in Pomegranate – one of my favourite deodorants. Not much else to say really.

Sanctuary Spa Instant Moisture Spray – my favourite body oil. I love the scent of it, it’s super light and non-greasy on the skin, absorbs quickly but leaves skin feeling well moisturised. This product allows you to moisturise your skin in no time.

What bodycare products do you guys like to use?

An Empty Affair – April Empties 2015

Spring is finally here and I have started sorting out slowly through my make up stash and clearing out things that are old or not used any more. I have also been trying to finish up products so that I would have less of them (*or space for new stuff?*). These are the items that I have binned:

Dove Hair Nourishing Oil Care Leave-In Spray – I’m not sure if this did anything for my hair but I liked using it for the smell, it’s really nice. This leave in spray needs to be shaken before the use as it has two different layers which need to be mixed up. I actually did not finish this product because just as I had a quarter of it left the spray nozzle stopped working and did not distribute the product when spraying any more. I decided to give up and and just bin it. If you guys know any good detangling sprays please could you let me know?

Une Breezy Cheeks Blushes – these are cream blushes that I’ve got from fragrancedirect.co.uk. Une was a brand sold in Boots a while ago but disappeared from the shops very quickly. The blushes that I’ve got where quite brownish. burnt orange type colours that did not suit me at all. I wasn’t really using them and decided that there’s now point in keeping them – I will not use them and they will just take space in my drawers.

La Roche-Posay Serozinc – the much coveted French zinc spray that’s supposed to calm your skin and keep spots at bay. I’m not sure if this one also does much to my skin but I have used it up and have a second one on the go. I have rosacea so anything that claims to keep your skin calm and happy will be used by me.

L’occitane Rose Ultra Rich Body Cream – the cream was nice and it was used up by myself and my Man. I’m not too keen on Rose scented products so I don’t think I will rush to purchase this one.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion – love, love, love this product! I raved about it here and I will one day pick it up again.

Dove Maximum Protection Antiperspirant with Cucumber & Tea extracts – this deodorant is nice and I like to use it but can I just ask why the price is so high? Also, why do we have so little choice of cream deodorants here in UK? The shelves in the shops are crammed with the sprays but there is very little option of nice cream deodorants. I just going to wait till it’s on a discount to buy it cause I just don’t agree with paying £5 for an antiperspirant.

Make Up Forever Smoky Lash Mascara – I had high hopes for this mascara but it did not live up what the rest of youtube/blogging world have promised it to be. It was supposed to be a much better version of the L’Oreal Miss Manga mascara but actually the L’Oreal option is way better. It did not do much to my lashes, I felt like it was actually quite clumpy and instead of giving proper volume it just stuck lashes together. If there is one thing I can suggest is not to splurge on this one and just get a cheaper better alternative from the high-street. (Now when I think how I looked through Barcelona for Sephora to buy this makes me sad. So much effort for such disappointment.)

Philosophy Hope in a Jar moisturiser – I had this little sample pot from an order I made with Debenhams and was happy to try it out instead of splurging for the full size. I did not enjoy it as I felt like it was quite heavily scented and the scent was not very pleasing to my taste. Good to try it but would not go in any effort to purchase it.

Artdeco Eyeshadow Base – This eyeshadow base is similar to the famous MAC paint pots offer. I think Artdeco sell this in one colour but it would work on anyone. This is actually quite a great little product and I have gone through two of them. They do dry out so you need to use eyeshadows quite often to use up the whole little pot. If you can easily get your hands on Artdeco products then this is one to pick up. I don’t think I’m going to get this again because they are not sold everywhere as well as I think that Maybelline cream eyeshadows are the best thing ever.

This time I have finished some loves, some ok products and some products that were not worth it. Have you tried any of these items, what do you think about them?
