October empties

Sunday 30 October 2011


A recap of the beauty products which I have recently finished and whether or not I would purchase them again. So this month, I have used up:-


Palmers Cocoa Butter Body Lotion - I have used a LOT of body lotions and this is by far the best of the cheaper brands you can pick up in places like Wilkos. If you are on a budget or just in need of a thick winter friendly lotion, then look no further. And it smells like vanilla ice cream. Amazing. Repurchase? Yes!

Boots Botanics Day Shift Moisture Lotion for Normal/Dry Skin - This was too much on the greasy side of face creams, didn't like it much. Repurchase? No.

The Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask - Warming/heat masks are probably my favourite type of mask to use, especially in the colder months but this Body Shop one only heated up for a few seconds and that was it. Hugely disappointing, so I'm glad it was a freebie.
Repurchase? No.

Lush American Cream Conditioner - Smells oh-so-good, like a heavenly vanilla scent and makes my hair nice and soft. Repurchase? Yes, already using a new bottle :)


L'Occitane Fleur Cherie Hand Cream
- L'Occitane make some of the best hand creams on the market. I think this was a mag freebie from a few months ago and I've been carrying it in my handbag. Wasn't that keen on the scent of this one (it's heavy on the Neroli) but the formula was light and non-greasy. Repurchase? No, I'll stick to the Shea Butter one that they do instead.

Boots Natural Collection Rosemary & Witch Hazel Face Mask - A thick clay formula which smells incredibly strongly of the two key ingredients. I liked it but the smell was a bit too off putting for me. Repurchase? No

Nelsons Pure & Clear Purifying Daily Facial Wash - I was happy to come across this natural version of Clearisil who don't use any nasties. Can't really tell if this works from one sachet use but it didn't break me out so it might be something I try a bottle of in the future. Repurchase? Maybe.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation - I'm glad that I got a sample of this in a magazine because I've tried the normal Double Wear and found it much too heavy for my skin, whereas this is their lighter version. Unfortunately, I still found this much too heavy, kind of sticks to my skin like plaster or something, not for me! Repurchase? No.


Lush Sugar Scrub - Had this in a gift set, way too rough for my skin but works fantastically on feet and smells great. Repurchase? Maybe as a foot scrub.

What products have you used up recently?

  1. Wow, you always use up so many products every month, I don't think I ever finish anything lol :)

  2. I am so in love with Cocoa Butter, I won't use anything else now. Great post! xx


  3. @Claire - Most of these just had small amounts left in them because I had so much stuff to begin with, I kept switching around and never finishing anything! But yeah by doing these monthly posts, I've nearly cleared all of the excess from my beauty stash now so there will probably be a lot less next month :)

    @Danielle - It's SO good isn't it? Thanks :) x

  4. Cocoa Butter is an old faithful in my beauty stash, I think I have nearly used up a bottle but have two back-ups somewhere haha, I do tend to hoard things when I like them :')
    I really like your monthly posts like this though, it eggs me on to do the same!

  5. you always use up so much, when i started i was like that but now i seem stuck with everything half full... maybe that means they will all finish at the same time lol :D


  6. @Jessica - I've restrained from buying any more Palmers until I've used up some more body lotions that are already open, but about a year ago I had at least four bottles in my bathroom! x

    @MissMathful - Yeah, this is all the easy, nearly empty stuff, I think I'll be at half-full points next month :) x

  7. I love american cream, makes my hair amazing. I used to use it as a treat, now I'll use it every time, So I'm trying to give it a break :P I hate the green lush sugar scrub, felt like it was going to take all my skin off. Sugar babe was far better :D

    Lucy xx

  8. @Lucy - American Cream is amazing as a treat, I'm using it daily at the moment and whilst it still makes my hair nice and soft, it does work better as a treatment. I like Sugar Babe better too, the green one is just too rough! xx
