May 2013 Empties

I love doing these posts. Nothing more satisfying than finishing off half empty products. Mine seems to be mostly shower products – that must mean I smell amazing and am very clean!

May Empties 2013

Nivea Water Lily & Oil Shower Gel £2.49 – This is a repurchase for me and it is the only shower gel I’ve repurchased. I love the scent and it is very hydrating and I find it good for shaving my legs (too much information?). So it’s safe to say I like this and I do have 2 more bottles in my backup stash

Sanex Vitamin E Deoderant £1.69 – this brand is the only one that doesn’t irritate my underarms. It works well and I always repurchase it. I get mine from the poundshop

Sanctuary Body Scrub £5.50 for 200ml – This wasn’t the best scrub. It was a nice body wash but I wouldn’t class it as a scrub. There wasn’t enough scrub in it for me. I wouldn’t repurchase it.

Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover £3.49 for 125ml – I found this too greasy. I didn’t like the feel of it on my eye. So won’t repurchase, I like my Garnier one more.

May Empties 2

LUSH Tea Tree Water Toner £3.95 for 100ml – This is another repurchase for me, I’ve had this 100ml size before and also the larger 250ml but I prefer the smaller one as I like to take facial toners with me when traveling and also some times in my handbag. This one is good when you’ve a breakout and its also nice to spritz to refresh your skin. I will repurchase this once I come back from holiday as I have a Caudalie one to take on the plane with me.

SpaceNK Laughter Perfume £20 for 15ml – I just adore this perfume and have been wearing it for many years. Every time I wear it I get compliments as it is such a lovely scent which lasts on the skin all day long. I tend to buy the smaller 15ml bottle as I put this in my handbag and use it throughout the day. It is such a refreshing uplifting scent. It is a firm favourite of mine. This is the only perfume I’m taking with me when I travel to San Fransisco as it is the perfect summer fragrance.

Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets £2.99 for 50 sheets – Another repurchase for me and I’ve a pack of these in my handbag, car and on my desk. Having an Oily T Zone these come in so handy and even more so in the summer. This is something else I’m taking on holiday with me. I wouldn’t be without them. I have written a post on them here if you’d like to read it.

The Body Shop Big and Curvy Mascara £10 – this was free with a magazine. I disliked this mascara so much it was a watery formula and so much product sticks to your lashes that they look clumpy even the brush is a bad design. Half the plastic bristles were too short and didn’t grip my lashes. It is safe to say this won’t be getting purchased!

LP Skin Therapy Uplifting Facial Water* £15 for 120ml – I loved this face spray I used it in the morning to wake my skin up. It was very hydrating and I found it quite calming on the skin. I would purchase this and think I’m becoming quite the face toner junkie!

May Empties

Superdrug Vitamin E Exfoliating Body Scrub £2.99 for 150ml – by far my favourite budget buy body scrub. I love this stuff it is an amazing scrub – if you like quite harsh scrubs then this is for you. I use this mostly on my thighs as I get dry skin there and also I like to exfoliate and massage them at the same time – tackling that cellulite. I recommend this scrub to everyone it is a bargain I urge you to try it.

Champneys Body Skin Comforting Body Butter £10 for 300ml – this was a Christmas Gift and I had never used anything by this brand before but I really liked this body butter. It smelt creamy and like freshly washed bedding (does that make sense?). I used this after shaving my legs as it absorbs quickly and left my legs so soft.

May Empties

Origins Starting Over Age Erasing Moisturiser £38 – for 50ml – this was a nice light moisturiser and it didn’t leave my skin greasy. I can’t say it was age earsing but I did like it. I’m currently using the Origins Make a Difference Moisturiser and I like that more.

Champneys Skin Comforting Cream Shower Cream £8 for  200ml- this like the body cream was really nice and hydrating it was a lovely set and I would purchase another one.

B. Pure Micellar Water 4.99 for 150ml – This was really good at removing the bulk of my makeup before I cleanse. I have written a blog post on it here. But I would repurchase this.

* This was sent to me for my recommendation & all reviews are 100% honest.

  1. I like the Sanctuary scrub a lot but it’s not very heavy on the scrub, I agree! One of the reasons I like it I suppose as I love their body wash and the scrub is super gentle. I’ve noticed pairing it with a flannel really makes it work better. That said, I’ve never actually *bought* it as it’s always come in a set!
    For shine sheets, you can make your own from tissue paper! Saves a fortune!

    1. The tissue paper idea is fab – I am sure I have some somewhere. Going to cut some up & test it. Thanks for the heads up

    1. I agree 100% shocking mascara. The formula was so wet and made my eyelashes look like a spider.

  2. I simply love the scent of the Real Luxury range, so when I discovered the body scrub I simply had to have it. There is nothing to dislike about this product. It gives your skin a good clean and scrub without being harsh. Your skin is left feeling so soft afterwards, and lightly fragranced. I love it. This will be a repurchase time and time again for me. It’s the best scrub I’ve ever used in the nicest fragrance I’ve discovered. I hope Neom keep stocking it.
