Product empties March 2016

I can't believe I actually have another empties post ready already. I don't usually do them because I rarely seem to use anything up and I haven't got space to be storing a load of empty packaging to save enough up for a post. I did an empties post in January and I've apparently used up enough to justify another post now, so here we are!

Product empties March 2016

The Body Shop Chocomania Eau de Toilette £8 I have a few of The Body Shop's little perfumes and although they all smell amazing they differ quite vastly in how long they last. This is one of the better ones and I love it. It's not a traditional chocolate scent but more along the lines of an almost slightly nutty cocoa scent. This is pretty much all I've used recently and as soon as it ran out I planned to repurchase. Unfortunately though it appears The Body Shop have stopped their Chocomania range, so it looks like I'm out of luck unless any pop up in a sale.
Repurchase? Definitely, but as I said it's no longer available *insert sad face*

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose dry oil sample size I'm not sure where this came from but it's been floating around for a while so I thought I should probably use it up. I do really like this but having to try and tip a small amount out of the bottle is not the easiest thing to try and do. I've only personally used this on my body but as it is multi-purpose you can also use this on your hair and face.
Repurchase? I would, but only if the full size actually has some kind of dispenser on it.

Lush Pot o' Gold Shower Jelly £3.75 This is currently available in the Lush kitchen in a larger size for £7.95 but I bought this from last years Easter collection. I love the toffee scent, that was the main reason why I bought it, but I find the shower jellies a little too difficult to use. They're so difficult to try and keep hold of so you spend a lot of time chasing them around the shower or trying to fish them out of the bath. After a while they also start to break up into pieces, which I guess means you can then use the smaller pieces, but I just ended up losing a load down the drain. It's a fun product but a little too much hassle.
Repurchase? No I wouldn't buy a shower jelly again

Aussie Color Mate conditioner £4.19 I had one of the other Aussie ranges, I can't remember which one now, and I really liked it. So when I dyed my hair red and wanted to try and keep the colour in I decided to go for the colour range. I then decided to go SLS free and so couldn't use the shampoo any more but when I was using both the shampoo and conditioner I wasn't really impressed with either. They just didn't seem to be as good as the other range I used.
Repurchase? Maybe because it's cheap/if it was on offer but I wouldn't bother with the colour one again.

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy shower gel* £4 This was a limited range so I'm not sure it's available any more. It takes quite a lot for a shower gel to impress me because I'm not that fussed by them, I'll usually just use pretty much anything as long as it gets me clean and doesn't irritate or strip my skin. This was nice enough, although a little unusual as it was a kind of petrol blue colour, but it didn't really excite me at all.
Repurchase? It's no longer available but possibly if it was.

The Body Shop Glazed Apple hand cream £4 I didn't even notice almost half of my empties were from The Body Shop! I love the Glazed Apple hand cream so I've got no idea why I only bought one this year, maybe because money was quite tight at the time. As much as I love this I've found that the scent has disappeared a little in this one, so maybe it was a good job I didn't buy a shed load of them. I didn't find that with the one I had last year though.
Repurchase? Definitely if they bring them back next Christmas.

Elemis Spa @ home pro-radiance hand and nail cream £25 I think this was part of a giveaway prize I won from the lovely Kat from Tales of a Pale Face. There's not an awful lot to say about this hand cream really. It's a nice one but I'm not sure there's anything pro-radiance about it really and it can take a little while to absorb so I reserve it for just before bed. This isn't one I would consider buying in the future because it's £25, which I think is pretty expensive, especially when I love The Body Shop's hand creams for just £4.
Repurchase? As above.

What have you used up recently?

  1. As a Beauty Blogger with a growing collection of products I always find it really hard to use products up. I'm currently working on a project pan to help me use things up. It was great to read about your Empties this month and it helps motivate me to finish up products in my collection! :)

    1. Yes I think I really need to use up some of the stuff I have for space reasons so that might be why I'm powering through quite a few things! x

  2. I haven't used up anything in a while although I did have a huge clear out and throw out lots of half used and gone off products. It felt so good to get rid!

    1. I think if I'm completely honest there's a few things I need to chuck that are a little past their best but it does feel such a waste! x

  3. I love everything from Body Shop, so sad we don't have it anymore in my country. I manage to empty products so rarely, only bath products and concealer seem to run out easily haha! New follower here!


    1. Thanks lovely, What a shame you don't have The Body Shop in your country x

  4. My Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel ran out this morning - very sad face. I've got quite a few things running low too, my LRP Effaclar AI is nearly all used up xx

    1. Although I'm trying to use things up I hate things running out if I like them because then it means I have to replace them! x


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate it x
