January and February Empties


I know it's almost time to do the March Empties, but since I hadn't got the opportunity yet to talk about the first 2 months of the year, I will do it now. I always try to use what I have started first and writing posts about it motivates me even more. So I am now sharing with you January and February's Empties:


Unknown Brand Face Wipes: I am not a big fan of face wipes, but I always seem to receive them to test. I know it is not really useful to you as I don't know which brand it is but I include them in the empties because it feels good to finish a product anyway! Those were not exceptional, nothing to write home about.

Repurchase: Even if I knew the brand, I wouldn't. Plain ordinary wipes.

Baptiste Original Dry Shampoo: This is the first dry shampoo I tried (back a few months ago). It is alright, the scent is nice, but having tested a few other since, I feel this one leaves a bigger cast than the others.

Repurchase: No, I prefer the Klorane one.

L'Occitane Fleur Chérie Hand Cream: I got this purse sized hand cream in Marie Claire last year. I really liked the smell, so I tried to make it last, as I thought it was limited edition. I like L'Occitane products, and this one as well. At first, I thought the cream was too rich to put during daytime, but I realized that even though it is, it doesn't take forever to sink in.

Repurchase: Yes, I like how moisturizing it is and the smell too.

Cien Deo Sensitive: I don't really have sensitive skin, so I cannot really testify for this claim. I bought this because the scent is fresh yet sophisticated, But unfortunately, I didn't like the deodorant. I'm usually picky about them, so I don't really know why I bought one at Lidl. Probably because the other products from the brands that I have tried were good. But I guess for this one you get what you pay for. It might be good for someone who doesn't perpire a lot, but I'm not lucky like them!

Repurchase: No, it didn't "protect" me enough.

Nivea Happy Time Bamboo Milk & Orange Blossom Cream Shower: I always think it is hard to review a shower gel. What is there to talk about except smell and lather? This one did the job alright, I don't have anything particular to say about it.

Repurchase: No, I still have a few shower gel bottles to finish.

L'Oréal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base: This is an ok product, but I would've like it to make my makeup stay for longer. I think that for the price, it should do more.

Repurchase: No, for the price, I prefer Mememe Seventh Heaven Face Base

Chap Ice Leashables Tropical Lip Balm: I'm not sure why this is called Tropical, as it smells like vanilla to me. It smells good, it does well, the only thing I don't like is the texture. Too hard and waxy for me. I prefer lip balm that melts and are easy to apply.

Repurchase: No, too hard.

Benefit Ring my Bella Perfume: I was glad when I have been given a sample of this perfume. This is the type of smell that I like: fresh and fruity. If you like the Escada perfumes, you should like this one (and it's not limited to a season, thus easier to find)!

Repurchase: Even though I really like this perfume, I wouldn't purchase it because I have a few Escada perfumes that are too similar, so I will use them instead of buying more.

Avon Astonishing Lengths Mascara: I think this mascara has a misleading name as I think it was more volumizing than lengthening. But it was fine by me, as I prefer giving my lashes volume instead of length. I also liked that it was a liquidy mascara.

Repurchase: I would, as I liked it, but for now I have other mascaras to finish, that are similarly good.

Clearasil Ultra All in 1 Wash and Mask: Well, I received this sample as part of their big "skincare mystery", so when I tried it I didn't know for sure it was Clearasil. The product is ok, but it reminds me a lot of the Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Wash and Mask. They both had the same smell, consistency and blueish colour. They are both ok products, but I'm not a fan of 2 in 1 products.

Repurchase: No, I don't like a mask that stays wet on the face.

Nair Ultra Hair Removal Cream: I go through a lot of those hair removal cream in the winter as I can't be bothered to use my epilator on long hair. Nair is one of my favourite brand for those cream and I used this one type a lot. Cannot fault it except for the smell, but then again all depilatory creams stink.

Repurchase: Yes.

How about you? Are you doing well on the Empties front?
