November-March Empties! :)

Hi guys!
I do apologise for not posting in so long! I am in my final year of my degree this year which means I have my year long graduating project to contend with        
:( getting it all organized and the amount of workshops and assesments just in the past month has been insane, but finally it is all sorted out and my schedule is a little calmer, which means I can return to blogging (yay!!)
About a year ago I had a LOT of disposable income and hence bought a ridiculous amount of beauty+bath products, most of which I have just managed to finish up, so I thought I would do an empties post!
2 x Models Prefer 2-in-1 cleanser and toner
Have used up multiple bottles of this, I am OBSESSED! :) its amazing, makes my skin so lovely.
Would I repurchase? Yes!
Enya Moisturizing Body Wash in Milk and Honey
Love this body wash :) cheap as chips, soap free, super moisturizing, and this scent smells exactly like a caramel tart, sooo sweet and yummy!
Would I repurchase? Yes if I see it around. Found my last bottle at go-lo but I'm not sure if they still stock it :(
Models Prefer 3-in-1 deep clean makeup remover wipes
Looove these makeup wipes! Really wet with makeup remover, have a click front closure so they don't dry out, have a slightly exfoliating texture, and do a great job of removing my makeup :) don't break me out either. Love them!!
Would I repurchase? Yes!
Palmolive Body Butter Decadent Moisutre Body Wash in Heavenly Vanilla
This stuff smells divinnnnnneee! Super thick and creamy! However I didnt find it as hydrating as my Lux body wash even though it was formulated as moisturizing!
Would I repurchase? Probably not.
Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil (Full size + Sample size)
Used this in the shower as a shaving oil :) worked well for that but I'm fairly sure it is what gave me little bumpy pimple like spots on my legs so that was a bit dissapointing. Smelt amazing!
Would I repurchase? Probably not as I think it broke me out.
Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Daily Balancing Moisturizer
I found that using this moisturizer actually irritated my skin and made it red almost instantly, which was odd considering it was a 98% natural product and didn't appear to have any skin irritating ingredients.. was quite expensive for the size and what it was so wasn't really happy!
Would I repurchase? No!
Lux Secret Bliss Fine Fragrance Body Wash
Absolutely love these body washes :) especially the fine fragrance range. They all have a great lather, beautiful scent which lingers on the skin and are super super moisturizing. There is a great range too :)
Will I repurchase? Definately.
Natio Natural Vitamin E Moisturizing Cream
Honestly WAS NOT a fan of this product. Had an okay formula, but the scent was that absolutely awful (I think so anyway!) fake natural geranium herby scent. Could not stand to put it on my face so I rubbed it on my sunburnt legs and on my feet to get rid of the stuff! Wasn't cheap either!
Would I repurchase? No way.
Natures Organics Clear Skin Face Scrub
Thought I would give this a go instead of my st ives apricot scrub but was not really all that impressed. The walnut shell particles were really sharp and a bit too abraisive for a facial scrub, plus it had a bit of a greasy texture, so I ended up using it as a body scrub which it worked just fine for :)
Would I repurchase? No, st ives apricot scrub is much better.
St Ives Clear Skin Apricot Scrub
Such a good reliable scrub. Love this for my face and body! Not too harsh and abraisive, but just enough guts to make your skin feel refreshed and new. Love!
Would I repurchase? Not until I have used up some of my other scrubs, but then definately :)
Formula 10.0.6 Seriously Shine Free Moisturizer
Was not completely finished this but had to throw it out as it had been open for 12 months. A pretty decent moisturiser, kept my skin from getting too oily, however it had quite a strange scent. Not my favourite face moisturiser.
Would I repurchase? No, there is better moisturisers out there.
Garnier BodyTonic Sugar Scrub
Love this scrub! Smells great, leaves a hydrating layer on my skin and isn't to harsh or fine.

Would I repurchase? Yes
Clean and Clear Essentials Oil Control Toner
Alright toner, it was a bit alchoholic for my liking though, a bit drying for my skin. Smelt nice though :)
Would I repurchase? No.
Products I am giving away!
Some products I simply do not like or they do not work for my skin type, but if they are almost full or might work for someone else, I share them around to my friends to see if they can have some luck with them!
Garnier original BB cream: Honestly just hated this. Awful. But I have seen many youtube gurus rave about this, so maybe someone with different skin type to me may have more luck!
Universal Brands White Lilly and Lotus, Coconut and Almond, and Orange scented bodywashes: Lovely smelling body washes, great lather, just were not hydrating enough for my pretty dry skin.
Sukin Sensitive Facial Moisturizer: A little too rich for my skin unforunately, made me a little oily and broke me out.
Organic Surge super-intensive daily moisturiser: Was quite a nice thick moisturizer but had the same awful natural scent that the natio cream did unforunately!

So that's all for my skin and bath product empties, my hair empties are soon to come! :) hope everyone has a great week!


  1. I didn't like the Garnier BB cream either but my Mum loves it :o)
