February Empties

Saturday, 2 March 2013

This might be cheating a little bit, but some of these empties are from January - shhh! I'm completely crap at finishing products, I seem to get bored and use something else especially when it comes to haircare. So I'm quite proud at the amount of hair-related empties I got through this month!

I finished the whole Lee Stafford Hair Growth range - shampoo, conditioner, hair treatment/mask. I had my hair chopped in January and it's grown leaps and bounds since. I really want to attribute that to these products, but it's most likely the fact that I had all my dead, dry ends cut off. Nonetheless, these products made my hair feel healthy and happy. I'd repurchase if they were on offer.

I was in Manchester for a couple of days in January and I bought the travel size John Frieda Full Repair shampoo and conditioner to take with me. Nothing much to say, they're okay. I wouldn't repurchase as they seemed to weigh my hair down a little bit.

I also finally managed to finish LUSH Cynthia Sylvia Stout shampoo - its main ingredient is beer, need I say more? It was great for my frizz-prone hair, but it's quite pricey so I can't see myself repurchasing it. Not keen on the smell either, was paranoid I smelt like an alcoholic tramp.

However, one hair product which I will repurchase is LUSH Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze which I wrote a full review on here. The smell definitely isn't my cup of tea (it stinks) but I can't deny that my hair absolutely loves this stuff.

I kinda cheated with this one, I have to admit. I bought LUSH Ocean Salt scrub like years ago, possibly around 4 years ago (WHAT?!). I found it last month, it still smelt/looked the same as the ones in store (I swear these expiry dates are a marketing ploy) so I used it. Then I remembered just why I've had it so long without using it. My face hates this stuff, it's far too abrasive for my sensitive skin. So I flushed the remains and kept the pot so I can get a free face mask soon... Sneaky.

I also used up a little sample of REN Mayblossom T-Zone Control Cleanser. Meh. Not much to say, it was slightly too drying for my temperamental skin so I won't be purchasing the full-size.

I'm gutted that I managed to finish the Boots Natural Collection Wild Strawberry body spray. It smells like the most synthetic strawberry smell going, but I really love it. I drench myself in what feels like a whole bottle everytime I leave the house, so I'm not surprised I've finished it!

And finally, I've gotten through another trusty Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Every blogger's tried and tested, and subsequently loved concealer it seems. I've already repurchased a back-up of this!

How many products have you managed to use up this month?

  3. I loved the Cynthia Stout shampoo, I reviewed it on my blog today actually! I agree it's really expensive though so I don't think I'll repurchase x

  4. Loving John Frieda full repair and collection 2000 concealer myself (both are long time favourites of mine) I really want to treat myself to some Lush bath products once I empty my seemingly endless stock of sample shower gels from my former Glossybox subscription ....

  11. I almost bought the John Frieda stuff the other day, kind of glad I didn't now. I still haven't tried the Lasting Perfection concealer, I've been putting it off - is it any good for under the eyes? My Erase Paste has just run out and don't really fancy forking out £19 for a new one at the mo!

  12. I used to love the boots natural collection sprays, can't say I remember why I stopped buying them! Strawberry is such a nice scent too, even artifical. I like your sneakyness with the Lush tub! haha

  13. Which shade did you go for in the Collection 2000 concealer?

    I bought this in fair as I've got pale skin and it blended great on swatch, but on my face it's almost too fair. After a bit of work it blends in but I'll definitely be going up one when I repurchase! xx
