HUGE May/June empties

I can't believe I missed last month's empties post?! I've been pretty good with these posts and I even had a box of empties piled up ready to photograph (still find that a little weird) and never got around to it. So, the product bottles and packets kept piling up through the month of June and I am now left with a HUGE pile of recycling and a lot of product thoughts to share with you! You might want to grab a cuppa? 

 Dove invisible dry compressed deodorant & Dove invisible dry deodorant 
My favourite deodorant, it smells fresh and feminine and does the job. I like that it leaves no white marks on any clothing whether it is light or dark in colour. Repurchase? YES 

Original source lime shower gel 
I recently featured this in a monthly favourites, and I absolutely love it! This is my 2nd one so that's a good sign, as I usually just use any old shower gel - I don't tend to stay loyal to a brand or scent as I like to try out different things! However, I already have another of these lined up, it smells amazing just like pure limes and is so refreshing. Repurchase? YES 

Johnson's baby shampoo 
This is such a lovely product to have even if you don't have a baby! I use this to clean my makeup brushes as it is very gentle, I've also used it on my own hair and it is lovely and light - It doesn't leave any build up in your hair! I mostly just used this for the deep clean of my makeup brushes - worked a treat, it's also only about £1ish too. Repurchase? YES

Soap and glory foam call 
Is it just me or do soap and glory products last a life time? I've had this massive 500ml bottles since Christmas and I use it all the time. I use this as wash with a scrunchie, and it foams up so nicely and leaves a lovely smell on the skin without being too overpowering. It's got that signature soap and glory scent, which I love. Repurchase? YES (once I've used up my other 12983 bottles of S&G) 

 Loreal Feria pastel pink toning conditoner 
The reason why this has never made an appearance on my blog before, is because it was a waste of money for me. I have dark blonde hair, but have bleached blonde/ombre ends, so I wanted to try the whole pastel pink ombre look. Unfortunately, this didn't take to my hair following the recommended instructions. I managed to get it to a subtle pink after using twice the recommended amount and leaving it on for AGES. Repurchase? NO 

2 x batiste tropical dry shampoo 
As always, I went for the tropical scent. It's my absolute favourite, and I've not found another dry shampoo that compares to this one. These have been life savers in this warmer weather we have been having just to freshen up my hair in between washes and give it a bit of life. Repurchase? YES

Nivea pearl and beauty deodorant mini 
I have to say, I love Nivea as a whole and I enjoy several products from their brand. This was no exception - my only complaint was that it was quite heavily scented and easy to choke on!! Repurchase? NO 

 MAC msf light medium powder
I bought this from a blogsale so I could try a MSF before forking out a whole twenty-something pounds myself. I really like the finish these give, they help to mattify the skin but also give a slight coverage too, so they are perfect for that flawless finish. I've already picked up my new one in the shade light! Repurchase? YES 

Lush snow fairy lip balm
Although this wasn't completely empty, it was time for it to go! Snow fairy is one of my fave scents from lush and this smelled exactly like  the shower gel! I wasn't overly keen on the formula, I found that it just sat on my lips rather than sinking in. Repurchase? NO 

Revlon nearly naked foundation in vanille 
Recently I have been absolutely loving the finish and coverage of nearly naked, it covers any redness and evens skin tone but also lets your freckles peep through just a tiny amount. It lasts a decent amount of time when topped with a finishing powder and the shade is absolutely perfect. Repurchase? YES 

Rimmel stay matte powder 
My HG powder - I go through these like nobody's business. Repurchase? YES

Elf shimmering facial whip in spotlight 
I didn't even use all of this, everytime I opened the bottle it would explode! The liquid tends to separate and become super runny and I just felt this was an awful product! The colour was beautiful, but the formula & packaging let it down. Repurchase? NO 

Oh! Organics facial toner spray
This is perfect if you are looking for an affordable facial spray/freshening toner. It smells very fresh and clean, and floral but it doesn't leave a lingering smell on your skin. It's perfect for cooling down and I love the packaging too. Repurchase? YES  

2 x tea tree facewipes - repurchase? At 2 packets for 79p YES!
 elf vanilla and coconut body wipes - repurchase? YES
Nivea refreshing facial wipes - one of my favourite facewipes. Repurchase? YES 

Rose & Shea butter intensive hand mask 
I picked this up as part of an at home pamper session for about £1 from a local bargain store! In the pack was a pair of gloves that had a 'hand mask' inside. You had to wear them for about 20 minutes and my hands felt amazing afterwards! They smell lovely too. Repurchase? YES 

Bath and body works cookie dough pocket bac 
I wish I lived in America/Canada purely for these little babies. They are so cute, and smell delicious! Repurchase? YES 

Well done if you made it this far in the post (let me know in the comments!) I hope it wasn't too long, and that you enjoyed seeing what products I've used up recently! Lesson learned : stay on top of monthly favourites posts to avoid mammouth posts like this one! Have you used any of these products? 



  1. I love Soap and Glory. Their products smell amazing x

  2. I haven't really tried any of these, so thank you for this! haha x

  3. I love Revlon foundations, I haven't tried that one though. I seem to have a never-ending pile of S&G stuff to get through!

  4. That shower gel is my fav too! So fresh and yummy smelling :)
