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?

December Haircare Empties

This is the first instalment of empties posts that I am going to make. I have collected a lot of used up products and I want to not only get rid of them but also write up all of the posts so that I could move on writing other posts. So this is what I have finished using from Haircare:

Lee Stafford Coco Loco Shampoo – ok, so this shampoo… I thought it would be coconut scented but it is not. That was a massive disappointment number one, then it also made me feel like it did not wash my hair very well. I felt like it made my hair greasy rather than washed so honestly I hated using it. I will not purchase this ever again and I can’t believe I used it all up instead of getting rid of it.

Tresemme Botanique Conditioner – A very affordable and great conditioner. At least this one gives a little bit of that coconut scent that I look for in coconut products. I think it worked pretty well to detangle and you get a lot of product so I used it without the need to limit myself on how much product I would like to put on. Would get this one again if I would find it on an offer. (I like my bargains)

Have you guys used these products before? If so, what were your thoughts about them?

An Empty Affair – July Empties 2016

I know that we are just entering July and an empties post for the month is supposed to be at the end of it but I have been gathering some empty products packaging for a while and I just wanted to get rid of them now rather than waiting till the end of the month. Once one realises that you have rubbish gathering around your house there is nothing else I want to do as to get rid of it. So here is what I have reached the bottoms of:

Boots Build Up Removal Expert Shampoo – I have bought this one for when I need a super clarifying shampoo. I have never tried Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo so I cannot compare but this did do a good job. It’s cheap and works all right. I’m not sure if I will be buying again any time soon but if I’m on a super tight budget then I’ll give this a go again.

The Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Oil – the best cleansing oil on the market which is also very well priced. This is my second bottle that I have finished and I know it will not be a last one.

Tresemme Perfectly Undone Sea Foam – the first time I tried this product I quite liked it but I have not used it that much. I took this bottle with me on a holiday and on the way back it managed to open itself and spill all of itself in the suitcase. I must say because this has annoyed me so much I kind of not will be buying it. In my experience it is not travel friendly when I thought it would be.

Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix pads – I liked using them and I have moved on to it’s sister product the Extreme night version.

Jo Malone perfume in Peony & Suede – I got this as a present and appreciated very much for the memories but I must say that I do not understand the hype around Jo Malone whatsoever.  The scent fades on me in a minute and that is just a no no for me. I wear perfume so that I could smell the scent myself and if it does not stay with me then I do not see the point of it. I will not be buying or asking for Jo Malone perfumes whatsoever.

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream – one of my favourite bases that are affordable and really nice. Once I lower down the amount of other bases I have going I will get this again.

Yes To Coconut Hand Cream – I love coconut scented products so this went down very well. It’s a tiny bit too heavy for my liking but then I really like super quick absorbent creams and the lighter the better for me.

Maria Nila Pure Volume Shampoo – loved, loved, loved this shampoo. Need to get another bottle of this.

Garnier Ultimate Blends Oat Body Lotion – this lotion is a bit heavier than other lotions I have used before. It does take a minute or more to get absorbed but I love the scent of it. Also it was nice to have it in a pump form for quick and convenient use.

Johnson’s Baby Spray Conditioner – a great detangler for your hair. Not much to say about it apart from it’s good to pick it up if you need a detangler.

Taaj Micellar Water – I wanted to try some other micellar water and when I saw this big bottle in TKMaxx I thought here we go. It is not better than Bioderma so I will not be buying it again (saying that I paid half the price than Bioderma).

Phew! I am quite happy to have finished some products. I am trying to somehow downscale on everything so happy to get rid of some bottles and make more space. Have you guys tried any of these products?
