My recent empties #3

Another empties post from the girl that doesn't usually use up enough stuff to do them?  Yes indeedy.

One of the reason's I wanted to try The Body Shops new Body sorbets so much was that I thought they might be similar to Garnier's Intensive 7 days Soothing gel-cream.  Despite having dry skin it always seems to like gel-creams and I love how quickly they absorb and that they don't leave anything behind on the skin.  In the humid weather we've been having recently they're very cooling and are also very soothing if you suffer with problems such as shaving rash.

Would I repurchase? I already have several times and yes I will buy it again in the future.

If you've read my blog for a while you may know I'm a bit of a reformed perfume addict and as I still have something like 20 plus to use up I don't buy them any more (The Body Shop perfumes don't count right?).  I love Escada's perfumes and I've had Pacific paradise for several years now, in fact I'm not sure you can get this one any more. 

Would I repurchase? As I said I don't actually buy perfume any more and I don't think this is available any more but if I was to buy a new perfume I would buy one of Escada's newer releases.

I'm quite new to serums and Eau Thermale Avene's Soothing hydrating serum* was one of the first I tried.  I love this serum as it helps to reduce the appearance of redness and is lightly hydrating and even though my skin can be dry I often found that this provided enough moisturisation for me in the morning so I didn't have to apply a moisturiser over the top.

Would I repurchase? Yes definitely, but I have others to use up first.

I think everybody probably suffers with dry skin on their feet and I'm a big fan of Soap & Glory's Heel genius. This has a mentol/minty smell to it and I love slapping a load on and popping on some socks over the top before I go to bed.  I cut the packaging in half so I could get the lasts bits out (there was actually loads left inside so it's well worth doing) but if you then slot one half back over the other like I do to try and stop it drying out this does get a bit messy on the packaging.

Would I repurchase? I already have another one ready to use, which I actually won as part of a blog giveaway prize, but once that's used up I will be buying another one.

Are you a fan of any of these products?
