Recent Empties #1

I've never done an Empties post before - this is because I put things in the basket in the bathroom to review in one big lump, but the boy sees a basket of empties and recycles them for me, being 'helpful'. So I've had words with him and have collected a range of bits over the last two months.


- Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish - I like this, its not love but I do like it & I was gutted when it died a death, but it did its job and now I've moved on.

- Bioderma - I admit I did buy into the blogger hype, tracked this down on EBay and fell in love. Quick & easy to wipe over my face when I get home before heading out to the gym, I haven't purchased as trying something else, but I almost want to book tickets to Paris! 

- Visibly Clear Spot Stress Control- Meh, could take or leave this, not something I would want to use again, nothing wrong with it but not a lot right with it.

-No7 Eye Makeup Remover - I found this very oily and left my eyelids greasy so I won't be picking it up again.

- Mascaras - These have been in my project 10, they are nearly dead, but I've got to throw them as they are not hygienic anymore.


- Natural Collection Mango & Papya - Nice shower gel, did the job, not a lot to say really.

- Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends - A great shampoo for those with Ombre hair, has helped to keep my hair looking a lot better.

- Umberto Giannini Conditioner - This was in a set, no idea what it is but it was a nice, creamy conditioner.

Wilko Nail Polish Remover - YUCK, this smelt like vinegar and was total rubbish! Teach me to buy cheap polish remover.

- Baylis & Harding Body Wash - I actually use this for chucking in when I have a LUSH bath bomb that doesn't give many bubbles. A nice bubble bath, not overpowering in scent, its cheap and cheerful.

- Batiste Dry Shampoo - I can't get on with dry shampoo, no idea why but it just makes my hair greasier! Not sad to see this go, but I will try and persevere to see if I can find something better.

So I'm glad to have these gone, I've not repurchased any of them as I have plenty to work through in the meantime :)
