March and April Empties Part 2

Here is the 2nd part to my overdue empties post.

Empties

Cutex Nail Polish Remover £2.44 for 200ml – This was just pretty standard really I tend to buy nail polish remover when it is in the sale. I am not too bothered by brand. This worked well nothing special. Clarins Silky Smooth Body Cream (sample size) – this came as part of a Christmas set with a few other products. I wasn’t expecting much really but I ended up loving this. It smells so good, really fresh and summery. It left my skin feeling very soft and moisturizsed and was easily absorbed. I would buy the full size which costs – £29.00 for 200ml

Nivea Happy Time Shower Cream £1.95 for 250ml – I have said so many times that I don’t like to spend too much on shower products because I go through them so fast & there are so many brands that do affordable ones. This Nivea shower cream smells of oranges and is a complete bargain. I have repurchased this many times as it’s a very gentle shower cream and it works well when shaving your legs as I find it very hydrating. Love this!

Empties

Vaseline Healthy Hands + UV Protection SPF 15 Hand Cream £2.99 for 75ml – I don’t know why it’s so hard to find a hand cream with SPF in but it took me ages to find this one. It lasted me about 2 months and even cut the top off to use the every last drop. I thought it was a little greasy but not unbearable it just took a minute to really sink in. I would repurchase it and I’m planning on taking it with me on holiday.

Nip + Fab Pistachio Sundae Dry Skin Fix Body Butter* £8.49 for 200ml LOVE LOVE LOVE this. It smells divine, I tried to savor every drop of this it was so nice. It was a thick body butter but it was so good at keeping my legs hydrated after shaving. I get so dry the day after I have shaved my legs but this worked a dream at keeping them silky smooth. I can’t say enough positive things about it. You have to smell this to appreciate how good it is.

Origins Make a Difference Skin Rejuvenating Serum (sample size) – This came in an Origins set I bought with a few other products from the same line. I have been enjoying them all I find this Make a Difference range to be really calming for my skin. The serum was almost like a milk and made my skin feel smooth and made a lovely base for my makeup. I am still using the moisturiser and cleanser from this range and I would repurchase them all. The full size serum costs £32.00 for 30ml

No7 Beautiful Skin Radiance Exfoliator £8.00 75ml – When I have a No7 voucher I like to try something new each time and this is what I bought just before Christmas. I have to say it was OK but I didn’t find myself reaching for it in the shower. I can’t say that it made much of a difference to my skin. I won’t repurchase this.

March and April Empties

Sure Bright 48hr roll on £1.79 50ml – This was on offer when I bought it for 95p, it did it’s job nothing more to report really. Apart from it smelt really nice and floral and I would repurchase. L’Oreal Full Volume Mousse (sample size) – I think this was in a Glossybox, it says full volume but I didn’t think it gave my hair any extra volume. I am not really a fan of mousse and wouldn’t pay the £9.00 for the full size.

Garnier Soothing 2 in 1 Makeup Remover £2.99 for 200ml – this is the 2nd one of these I used up and I really like it. It removes my makeup well and it is really gentle. I’ve already repurchased this.

* I received this in a goodie bag at an event.

    You finished loads of products! I love months like this, always makes me feel like I’m actually getting good use out of my stash haha. Randomly, I haven’t tried ANY of the products you mentioned.I love the look of the Origins serum, i keep eyeing up all their products whenever I see them anywhere. xx

  2. I love Empties posts. I feel like you’re getting a really good review if the person has finished the entire thing. I’d be no good to do them though as I am really bad for hopping from one product to another rarely actually finishing anything! It’s something I’m working on though so maybe in future I can do a post like this!
