February Empties ...


I haven't done an 'Empties' post for a while so thought I'd share a few bits I've finished up recently ...

Charles Worthington Strength and Repair Pro-Heat Milk - I use this practically every time I dry my hair to smooth and protect.  I can see this being a regular repurchase (I'm into my second bottle!) - full review is here.

Sure Crystal Invisible Aqua Anti-Perspirant - unfortunately I'll not repurchase this one - it works fine as an anti-perspirant and smells ok but the fumes (if that's the right word) are really strong and seem to hang around suspended in the air (even with the bathroom window wide open) and catch in my throat - must be because it's all trapped in there or something!

Liz Earle Energising Body Scrub - I've used this on and off for years  (usually take one with me on holiday!) - it's non scratchy, yet effective and smells lovely and uplifting - one of my all time favourite scrubs - I'll repurchase once I've finished my large stash!

Le Petit Marseillais Shower Milk - brought this back from France last year (I have a thing about French toiletries!)  - don't ask me to translate word for word but basically it's a hydrating and nourishing body wash that I've found really comforting to use when the old hide has felt a bit dried out this winter.

Bare Minerals Original Foundation SPF 15 in Medium Tan - another product I've used for years now - mainly for work and nights out. It's just so easy to stick on - even when you're half awake in the morning and gives great coverage without looking heavy - it's a regular repurchase!

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil - and another regular repurchase - been using this particular bottle since September as an evening cleanse as it's excellent at removing make-up.  Full review here.  I've just bought another cleansing oil and balm to use (darn the inquisitive beauty blogger in me!) so will see how they compare.

Mandara Spa Amber Heaven Softening Body Cream and Conditioning Shower Cream - love the warm scent of this range, gorgeous to use in Winter. These two came as part of a reduced post- Christmas gift set so ended up costing about £1 each - bargain or what!   

So those are my empties ... what have you got through this month?

  1. Im off to France this year I will have to keep a an eye out for the shower milk I quite fancy trying that xx

    1. Love Le Petit Marsellais products Gail - you'll be spoilt for choice! xx

  2. I have used bare minerals and I do like it, but I do chop and change my base......At the moment loving Nars sheer glow, which is a new find for me, it has as much coverage as you want, but still looks pretty natural? You cant beat Charles Worthington products, they do seem to be a salon quality at not too bad a price, especially when they do offers! Helen xx

    1. I've heard about the Nars Sheer Glow Helen - it's on my very long wishlist! xx

  3. I agree with you on the fumes of that Sure deodorant. I tend to move between Dove, Nivea or Soft and Gentle depending on what's on offer!! I'm using a mini of the DHC Cleansing Oil and love it, it's so effective at removing makeup xx
