June Empties

Wednesday, 27 June 2012


It's that time again!  Here are my empties for June and whether I would repurchase them:-
  •  The Body Shop Coconut Body Scrub - Although I adore anything coconut scented (and this does smell good), I thought this scrub wasn't very effective at all.  It's more like a shower smoothie and has these tiny bits in it that just don't exfoliate anything.  Repurchase? No.
  • Lush The Olive Branch Shower Gel - I always seem to have a small bottle of this in my bathroom and like to use it every now and again for a change.  Repurchase? Yes.
  • KMS California Free Shape Quick Blow Dry Spray - Love this, it does what it says it'll do and is lightweight on the hair.  Repurchase? Yes, definitely will get a full size.
  • The Body Shop Vitamin E Tinted Moisture Lotion - I do like this because it moisturises well and gives pretty good coverage for a tinted product, but I feel it's better suited to dry skin types because it can feel a bit too greasy on my oily/combination skin, especially in summer.  Repurchase? Maybe in Winter.
  • Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in 09 Currant - Nice sheer gloss, a little sticky though.  Repurchase? I wouldn't buy a full size, but I would pick up another sample.
  • Clinique All About Eyes Eye Cream - Lovely to use at night as it's very rich and super hydrating.  Repurchase? Already have another sample.
  • LJ's Natural Solutions Balancing Organic Moisturiser* - This was too heavy for my skin so I used it up as a night cream and it was great for that.  I imagine it would work really well for dry skin.  Repurchase? No.
  • Jurlique Purely White Skin Brightening Cleanser - Loved this sample, my skin did look brighter after just one use.  Repurchase? Yes, I think I would buy a full size.
  • Montagne Jeunesse Sauna Masque - One of the best budget beauty buys out there, this is simply amazing for only 99p!  Has a warming effect which draws out any impurities clogged in your pores and always makes my skin look really clean afterwards.  Ideal if you're prone to breakouts.  Repurchase? Yes!

  • Percy Reed Spendidly Silky Moisturising Conditioner - Didn't hydrate my hair, it made it even drier, hated it!  Used it up as shaving cream instead.  Repurchase? No!
  •  Witch Anti-Blemish Skin Clearing Primer - I like this a lot as I find it really works well for oily skin and creates a barrier that prevents make-up from breaking you out.  Repurchase? Yes, but not for a while as I'm using Benefit's The POREfessional at the moment.
  • Dead Sea Spa Magik Silky Smooth Body Lotion - Lovely formula that sinks into the skin straight away, but it doesn't really have a scent.  Repurchase? No.
  • Bodhi Ylang Ylang Incensa Sensual Body Moisturiser* - The scent of this is absolutely divine but I prefer the formula of other body moisturisers more.  Repurchase? Probably not.  I'd rather splash out on the shower gel with the same scent instead.
  • Lavera Basis Sensitive Hand Cream - Great summer hand cream because it's quite light, really like this.  Repurchase? Yes.
  • Weleda Sea Buckthorn Creamy Body Wash - This has a wonderful uplifting citrus scent and was quite moisturising too.  Repurchase? Yes, would buy a full size at some point.
  • Iroisie Ultimate BB Cream SPF 25 - Tried this today and wasn't that keen on it.  Smells quite strongly and was very thick which made it difficult to blend.  Repurchase? No.

  2. holy cats -- that's a lot of empties!
    i usually keep my little black pots from lush (you probably know this -- but they have that awesome recycling program where if you bring in 5 pots, you get a free face mask! love it!) otherwise, i don't keep my empties.
    most of these i have never tried/heard of!
    as for the body shop body scrub -- i never purchase body scrubs. i always make my own! my skin really love an olive oil/brown sugar combo -- and i save so much money!

    1. I love Lush's recycling scheme - actually you've just reminded me that I have 5 pots to take in for a face mask! Yay :)
      I agree with you about body scrubs, so many shop brought ones just aren't scrubby enough for me (I like them to be fierce!) and I often make ones from sugar at home instead, they're always good :) x

    1. I was really impressed by it, it lathers well and feels quite soapy but it doesn't give you that tight feeling. I always seem to go back to All About Eyes too, I have a couple of samples of it in my stash :) xx

  6. You have so many products! I like the sound of the Montagne Jeunesse mask and the Clinique eye cream, I usually do an empties post with a good few products but this month I have none yet, I'm so surprised! I do have some things which are almost gone so I'm hoping I can use them up in the next few days because I enjoy writing my empties posts! xx
