August Empties...

Bonjour!

A mixture of recent empties here - some from July and some from August ...




Emma Hardie Moringa Balm - this huge 200ml baby lasted ages and it's an all time favourite!  I am patiently waiting for a special offer to re-purchase.  You can read my full review here.

Johnson's 24 Hour Moisture Hand Cream - lovely hand cream and one I've repurchased over and over. Hydrating and soothing - it's not overly perfumed so I can use it even when my hands are dry and sore.

Neal's Yard Rehydrating Rose Daily Moisture - I've had this for ages - from one of my first beauty boxed last year and thought it was about time I used it. This has been such a lovely product during the recent hot weather - took it on holiday too and it worked a treat at keeping my skin hydrated - gorgeous delicate scent too. I'd like to re-purchase but for now I have the recent Neal's Yard 'Power Berry' magazine freebie tucked away!

Sanex Sensitive Shower Cream - I tend to always have Sanex Shower Gel or Cream in - get them whenever they're half price at Sainsburys.  I had a bout of itchy eczema on my neck a couple of months ago - was driving me mad and this was one of the shower creams that didn't upset it further or dry my skin out. I've re-purchased a few times and will continue to do so.

Boots Essentials Base Coat - I've had this for ages. It's super cheap and empty (well there's a tiny bit in the bottom but I'm having to lie it on it's side and scoop around to get any out of it so think it's time for a new base coat.)   Want to try out a few other base coats now.

Alpha H Absolute Eye Complex - bit of a disappointment this one.  If you happened to read my review last year on this product (if not you can do so here) you'll know that this was a firm favourite.  I had high hopes when I re-purchased the 30ml in it's new 'tube' package but unfortunately it didn't last long at all - maybe only 2-3 months (only using in the morning) - how can this be when the original bottle lasted ages, around 8-9 months? No idea - I even cut open the tube to scrape what I could out in desperation. I've given up and moved onto something else.

So that's that then. Have you used any of these products? What you did you get through during the past couple of months?

  1. Love how you cut your tubes to get it all out, I do that too! I have been using Sanex body wash, I like it and it doesn't aggravate my skin but I want to find a sulphate free one xx

  2. Sanex is one of the only ones my little girl can use without a spot of eczema she has on her back flaring up! It is only a tiny patch , but never goes away completely. I have realised that the key to getting my polish to last is getting a good base coat on first! I'm trying a few too :) xx

    1. Same with my boy when he was little Claire - thankfully he seems to not be as eczema prone now. I have a new base coat to try so it's full steam ahead! xx

  4. I've got the Alpha H liquid gold which I quite like. I'm not going to say I swear by because there isn't much I swear by - I still look wrinkly. I keep hoping for miracles but I think they call that surgery. But shame about the eye complex not lasting as long this time. But on the whole you still like it, don't you?

  7. I have a huge box of empties that I reaaalllyyy need to get on and blog about so I can chuck them away. Those posts definitely are my most time consuming. Finding prices, volumes and recalling how I feel about them but I enjoy reading other peoples posts :)
