January Empties

Sunday, 29 January 2012

Here are my beauty empties for this month and whether I would choose to repurchase them or not. The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter - Have used this for years and it's still a firm favourite of mine. Definitely one that I enjoy using in the colder months because it's so thick and moisturising. Repurchase? Yes. Crystal Spring Salt Of The Earth Deodorant Spray (review) - I made the switch to all natural deodorants about a year ago and have mostly been using this brand. It's fragrance free and works great, no problems at all! Repurchase? Yes. Cowshed Cow Pat Moisturising Hand Cream - Received this when it was free with a magazine and although I've liked other Cowshed products, I didn't think much of this. It wasn't particularly moisturising in my opinion. Repurchase? No. Ceteum SCR Gold Creme De Lite - From a Boudoir Prive box, this smelt awful like talcum powder or something! Didn't rate it much as a moisturiser either. Repurchase? No. Lush Glogg & Snow Fairy Shower Gels - I love these, they smell so good. Repurchase? If they bring them back this year, then yes!

Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturiser in Shade 03 - Really liked this, has more of a foundation formula than a traditional tinted moisturiser but it was really good and non-greasy for my oily/combo skin. Repurchase? Yes, will get a full size when my current foundation has run out. The Body Shop Nutriganics Smoothing Day Cream - Didn't like this much, don't think it's right for my skin. Repurchase? No. Burts Bees Honey Lip Balm - One of my all time favourite lip balms, like ever! I always end up going back to this and usually have a spare one around somewhere. Repurchase? Yes. Witch Concealer Stick - I do like this for covering blemishes but will probably try Collection 2000's Lasting Perfection next. Repurchase? Probably not. OPI Nail Envy Mini - Another product that I do like (review) but I've switched to using Trind for now. Repurchase? Maybe. Vinies Luminous Skin Mask - That face mask from Boudoir Prive. I thought it was OK but nothing amazing and the smell was a bit too off-putting for me. Swapped the other sample pot. Repurchase? No.

Have you used up any beauty products this month?

  1. I had that Body Shop moisturiser sample too, didn't like it at all, made my skin feel claggy :/
    I do reccommend the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer though, it's brilliant! :)
    Sadly I was going to do a Jna empites post but my mum chucked out my empty bottles etc without letting me know, never mind!

  4. I so love empties posts! I also love the body shop coconut body butter. I used but didn't love Vinies face mask (hated the smell but thankfully didn't have an allergic reaction like some) I have just finished a full size of Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturiser 03 and would definitely re-purchase. x

    1. It is hard, I generally alternate products so it probably looks like I use up loads but really a lot of these are travel/sample sizes x

    1. It definitely makes you spend less (well kind of...I still spend far too much on beauty stuff!) when you use up what you already have :) xx

  12. I love Burt's Bees... they never seem to disappoint. Another great product I have been using for my chapped lips is Maybelline's "Baby Lips".. it really does cure chapping!
