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 – June Empties 2015

Another month and another instalment of an empties post. I don’t like to collect too many empty products so I prefer to write a post about used up products as soon as I have a few empty pots on my desk.

First up, I have used up the cheapest shampoo that I haver ever tried and that is Superdrug 3 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo. I really liked it and it’s great for a sensitive scalp. You should not be deterred by the conditioning part as it did not leave my hear greasy or with too much product in it. I think I will definitely get this again one of these days.

Carrying on with the in shower products theme I have also finished The Body Shop Honey Scrub. This was kind of useless product. It’s supposed to be a scrub but it did not do well to actual scrub my skin. I felt like it’s just a body butter with some grainy texture but it was not good enough to really take off dead skin. I will not be purchasing this scrub but I am keen to try other scrubs that The Body Shop offer.

After I leave shower I really like to apply body lotion or some body oil. Sanctuary Spa Body Moisture Spray is the best dry body oil I have used so far. I really love! It smells great for one, it is dry oil so you never end up feeling greasy and it absorbs super quickly. I have a second small bottle of it in my work to use it when I shower at work after cycling and I have bought a big bottle to keep it at home.

I always try to remember to moisturise my hands. Once I read that a woman’s age can be given away by looking at her hands. It is true that we put hands through a lot but not often we take care of them. I always keep some sort of hand moisturiser at work so that after every hand wash I could give some moisture back. I have finished Mandara Spa Sandalwood hand moisturiser and I am very sad that I can’t find it again. I love sandalwood smell and this hand cream smelled divine. I found it in Sainsbury’s so if anyone spots it back please let me know! I need another bottle of this in my life.

I have also used up Dove Pure deodorant. It’s simple, has no perfume but I prefer stick form deodorants so I won’t be buying it again. Well, unless I can’t get my hands on any good stick form deodorants.

I have finished L’oreal Skin Perfection primer. I liked it for smoothing out the skin and making a nice canvas for applying foundation over the top. I’m not sure if I will be buying this as I want to try other primers for now.

Can’t count how many tubes of Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer I have gone through. I have been using the colour 2 Medium Cool but I have realised that it’s a bit too pink toned so now I have colour 3 Warm Medium which is more of a yellow toned which is better for hiding my redness.

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist is my first lip product that I have fully finished. I love it that much that I have nothing left in the tube. I want to go through the multitude of other lip products that I have but I’m pretty sure that I will be re-purchasing Nudist some time in the future.

This is what I have used up in June. I though that as these products were going to end up in the bin it was right to take the picture of them on the bin 🙂

Have you guys tried any of these products? Do you have any alternatives to suggest?
