January 2013 Empties

What a long dull month January was, I’m glad its over. I’ve a busy February ahead as it’s my 13 year anniversary and my best friend is getting married plus there’re so many new beauty releases that I’ve had my eye on & was too skint in January to purchase, so I’m going to blow the budget in Feb! Right so this is what I used up this past month.

Jan Empties 2013

La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution 200ml £11.50 – I used this up quite quickly. It was good at removing my makeup, but I always cleanse after anyway. I would repurchase this but I picked up a bottle of the new B. Pure Micellar Water so will be testing that out.

Garnier 2 in 1 Makeup Remover 200ml £2.99 – This is a repurchase for me, I tried a Nivea one this month and had to stop using it as it really irritated my eyes. This Garnier one even removes waterproof mascara. I’ve already purchased another one. I won’t try another this is my go to makeup remover.

Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz 150ml – This has been a nice facial toner this month. It’s been nice to spray on during the day to give my skin a lift esp as I work from home and have had the central heating on alot. It helps my skin stay hydrated and clams down the redness

Jan Empties 2

Imperial Leather Limited Edition Bewitching Shower Cream – This was nice and smelt lovely and fruity. I never buy a shower gel twice I just purchase what is on offer. This one was nice and I do recommend it.

Palmolive Naturals Pampering Touch Coconut Shower Milk – This was a really hydrating shower gel and I really liked it to shave my legs with as it left my skin so soft.

Vo5 Moisture Soak Elixir 75ml £4.29 – This I enjoyed using. It lasted me quite a while. I used it once a week  it left my hair looking healthy and glossy. I would repurchase this. I have posted about this in my Winter Hair Care roundup

Jan 2013 Empties

The Body Shop Dry Cool and Zesty Roll on – I think this has been discontinued and I’m sad about that as I really liked this. It worked so well and I liked the citrus scent. I’m going to try to hunt down some backups.

Clarins Super Restorative Replenishing Comfort Mask – This was a sample with another purchase. It lasted for 3 applications, it was OK quite milky and left my skin smooth and plump but I couldn’t say if it helped with firming and tightening. I wouldn’t repurchase this. I think It might be aimed at ladies who are older than 34.

Molton Brown Myrrh, Muske and Cypress Hand Wash – This was a gift with a purchase and I have owned the full size one. I love it. It smells incredible, very luxurious and I can smell the scent for ages after washing my hands. Most hand washes dry my hands out but this one doesn’t. I really recommend Molton Brown Hand Wash, it lasts for a really long time. The 300ml lasts me at least 2 months. The full size 300ml costs £16

Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara – I loved this mascara. It separated and lengthened my lashes. I like that look, there were no clumps and it didn’t flake at all. I have done a review of this here & if I didn’t have 5 mascaras waiting to use I would repurchase. 6ml for £18

January Empties 2013

No7 Protect and Perfect Eye Cream £15 – This took the longest time to run out. This was a nice eye cream it wasn’t too heavy or greasy and it really hydrated my under eye. I always use my No7 vouchers to buy this so never pay full price for it. I would repurchase this.

Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum – from a glossybox. Not too sure what to say about this. I think its meant to almost freeze your face?? This isn’t quite the look I go for (frozen in time). I have a couple of these sachets to use. I used this one around the lines on my eyes (crows feet). I have to say it felt like it was working but I wouldn’t pay the £127 price tag for the full size.

No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Serum – Gift with purchase – I’ve used so many of these both full size & sample size. Its a lovely serum but since purchasing the Hydraluron (my true love) I haven’t repurchased. But it is a nice serum. Full size is 30ml & costs £23

Have you used any of these products? Or have you done an empties post – leave me a link in the comments if you have.

  1. That Garnier make up remover looks like a bargain, I will definitely give that a go. I feel like February is a month for treats after a frugal January but I won’t be splurging to freeze my face!
