June Empties

Errrrm just a couple of empties last month! I did chuck in a couple of random’s though.

Take a pew and I’ll get started, you might want to make a cuppa too…

1. Soap and Glory Hand Food  
I love this stuff! When I had my now toddler my hands were so dry from constantly washing them (nappies etc) and I had tried so many brands and as soon as I used this it cleared up the dryness so quickly. I have gone through many a tube in the last few years and can’t recommend it enough! Plus it has a gorgeous smell.
Repurchase? Hell yeah!

2. Mitchum 48 Hour Protection Roll on in Waterlily
This is another favourite of mine. I have been using Mitchum for years and find it’s the best to get the job done! Waterlily is a lovely scent too.
Repurchase? Without a doubt!

3. Sally Hansen Strengthening Nail Polish Remover
This is a great polish remover, I have a review here. Highly recommend it, it’s done my nails the world of good!
Repurchase? I already have a back up but can see this being a staple

4. L’Oreal Inoacolor Care Conditioner  
My lovely French lady added this sample in my Jolie Box. It made my hair feel lovely but does not smell good!
Repurchase? No

5. Dermalogica Gental Soothing Booster
This is such a tiny sample that I only got one use out of it so I don’t have any opinion on it.
Repurchase? No

6. Benefit Posietint
I love this tint from Benefit. It gives a lovely flush of pink! This tiny sample has lasted me ages.
Repurchase? I already have a mini as back up!

7. Tropic Skin Revive Firming Nourishing Cream 
This was in Jolie Box and I have to say I didn’t think I would but I really enjoyed using this cream! It smells lovely and is thick but has applies thin (if that makes sense) and sinks into the skin well. I only used this at night and always woke up with nourished soft skin. The sample was too small to tell if there were any firming goings on though.
Repurchase? It’s on the ‘to buy’ list for once I get through my other products

8. Narciso Rodriguez Perfume 
Another beauty box sample. I really love the scent!
Repurchase? Undecided as I love it but also love too many other scents at the moment!

9. Trilogy Age Proof Booster Serum 
Well all I can say about this product is I bloody love it! It’s more of an oily serum so best used at night as it makes your skin a little greasy but I wake up in the morning and my skin feels fantastic and has more of a glow. Lasts ages and I originally thought it was about £50 but seeing as it’s half the price I thought it was I think this will be winging it’s way back in to my routine sooner than I thought!
Repurchase? Yes! Might need to get through a few other products first though

10. Caudalie Cleansing Water
Oh Caudalie how I love thee! This cleansing water is da bomb! Smells divine and takes your makeup off pretty effortlessly. It’s non drying and great for sensitive skin. A now staple in my skin care routine!
Repurchase? Already have!

11. Trind Nail Repair
I am still undecided about this nail strengthener! I loved it at first but I think too much use possibly makes my nails weak and causes my cuticles and skin to flake.
Repurchase? I have a back up but not sure whether I want to use it or not!

12. Perricone  MD Firming Activator 
This was a gorgeous smelling moisturiser but I am not sure it really did anything for my skin.
Repurchase? Most probably not, especially due to the price!

13. Wella Repair Mask
I have had this hair mask on the go for a few years! I always forgot I had it so had made a concious effort to use it up. It leaves my hair feeling soft and nourished and I do like the result.
Repurchase? Possibly, I have Macadamia to get through first

14. Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream
I was surprised by this product! I haven’t heard too many great reviews but I quite liked it. It did do a good job of brightening under the eyes and was quite nourishing. I don’t think it helped to fade dark circles but I only had a small sample.
Repurchase? Again I have a few products to get through so for now it’s a possibility

15. No7 Lash Adapt Mascara
This is a great mascara, really buildable and thickens the lashes. Highly recommend it.
Repurchase? I do have a few on the waiting list to be used but maybe in the future as I do love it!

16.  E.l.f Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara  
I use this only for my brows. I find it does a good job for keeping those pesky brows in place and for £1.50 you can’t go wrong!
Repurchase? Already have!

17. No7 Exceptional Definition Mascara 
I don’t really rate this mascara. It did an OK job, nothing special and to be honest I never really picked it up.
Repurchase? No

18. Aldi – Galpharm Hayfever tablets
Yes a bit random but tis the season for horrendous eye itching and sniffing like it’s winter so I thought I’d include it. These cost about 70p from Aldi and do a good a job as any other tablets I have tried! Aldi had a different brand last time I went in but they do a good job too.
Repurchase? Have already

19. Body Shop Organic Cotton Pads
These do the job like any other cotton pads I have tried, could be a bit softer though.
Repurchase? I have a spare back up pack to use

The Usual Suspects 
Some products you will find in the empties post month after month so I thought I would list them under here so’s you don’t get too bored 😉

20. Poundland Dry shampoo
Wasn’t too keen on this one, the scent was nice but it didn’t do much in the way of ‘cleaning’
Repurchase? Not this brand

Phew! Now I can chuck em away..

    You have been busy! I've been loving Hand Food lately, should have a tube in my July empties!

    I'll have to try that Mitchum as I'm always on the lookout for a good deodrant xx

    I love reading empties! I gives me an idea of products to purchase that people loved, or didn't love so much! 🙂 xx

    • 7th July 2012 / 11:11 pm

      It does give you a great idea if someone likes the product or not x

    I love the benefit minis – i have a couple on the go. I loved the posietint. Gives a sweet flush of colour. I am going to pick up some of the Caudalie cleansing water i have sensitive skin & this sounds right up my street.

    • 7th July 2012 / 11:12 pm

      Posietint is my fav! You can get 100ml of Caudalie for £5 to try out but I'm sure you'll love it, it's fab! x
