[Empties] March & April 2014

Empties time! I had to skip the empties post for March because I had only used up two products so here I am with a combined post.

March and April Empties

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

The sample size of this product lasted forever, the powder is fine and left my skin feeling so smooth.  I used a similar product by The Body Shop called The Body Shop Moisture White Cleansing Powder and liked it more than the Dermalogica version , so if I’m ever after a cleansing powder I’ll buy that one instead.

Repurchase? No.

The Body Shop Strawberry Gel

This had me smelling so yummy  and left my skin soft and cleansed. Would love to try more scents from the Body Shop gel range!

Repurchase? Yes.

Norsca Antiperspirant

This is honestly the worst antiperspirant that I ever purchased, I had to hold my breath each time I sprayed it because it lingered in the air for ages and I kept breathing it in. Also, the can reminded me of insect spray. On the plus side, it did  prevent me from sweating and did not leave yellow or white stains, as claimed on the packaging.

Repurchase? No.

Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship shampoo

This shampoo left my long hair feeling so soft and hydrated. It also smells like raspberries and comes at a friendly price so what’s not to love?!

Repurchase? Yes.

The Body Shop Born Lippy – Watermelon

The Born Lippy lipbalms are a favourite of mine, I usually have a few open ones lying open at the same time. The watermelon flavour has no color, and is thicker and more hydrating than other flavours that I’ve tried.

Repurchase? Yes.

Nads Facial Wax Strips

The Nad’s Facial wax strips have a soft fabric backing, not plastic like other brands that I’ve tried in the past. These were average, it took a few strips to get off all the hair from my upper lip each time I tried using it so I just went back to using hot wax.

Repurchase? No.

Maybelline Falsies Mascara (not pictured)

I swapped this mascara at the Benefit Mascara Swap so it has not been included with the rest of my empties above. This mascara was fantastic to use, the brush took some getting used to but I got the hang of it eventually. It gave me really huge lashes in terms of curling and volume and stayed on all day without smudging or flaking. This mascara didn’t lenghten or provide a false eyelashes effect but it’s really good to use daily if you’re just looking for volume and huge lashes.

Repurchase? Yes.

That’s it from me, I can’t believe that it’s already Friday tomorrow! Definitely looking forward to this weekend 🙂

Until next time,
