Empties #2

For a change I actually finished a few products within the same week which can only mean one thing.... spending loads of money to replace them woooo empties post!

L'oreal Elvive Nutri Gloss Shine conditioner - what is it with always finishing conditioner when you still have half a bottle of shampoo left? At the moment I just kinda buy shampoo & conditioner based on what's on offer so although this was a perfectly adequate product I've not repurchased it. Instead I've gone for one of my favourites which is the Boots Coconut and Almond range seeing as it's affordable and I had a voucher. If this was on offer again in the future I probably would repurchase.

Umberto Giannini Curl Friends Natural Curls Styling Spray (mouthful...) - another product that I bought on offer and had a voucher for. If you've been hanging about for a while you'll probably know of my love for the John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Styling Spray (equally as much of a mouthful) and this has not replaced that, however I've found that the John Frieda spray works best for my hair when it's still wet whereas the Umberto Giannini product is a whole lot better when it's dry. It's a bit pricier but is often on offer and when I repurchased it last week I got extra points too!

Macleans Total Health Whitening toothpaste - I'm never too bothered about what toothpaste I buy (as long as it's not peppermint, euch) so I kinda just picked this up and hoped for the best. I think it's a decent whitening toothpaste but I'm not a big fan of the taste as it has a hint of cough medicine to it... weird. I've not repurchased this but wouldn't necessarily be put off doing so in the future.

Collection Lasting Perfection concealer - my holy grail concealer. It's perfect for me at the moment and I shall always repurchase. In fact I have just purchased 3 as they were on 3 for 2 and I thought it would be rude not to.

Dove Go Fresh Antiperspirant Deodorant in Pomegranate & Lemon - I'm not sure why I keep returning to this deodorant time after time, but I think it's the lovely smell. I'm not 100% loyal to this as I have bought a slightly cheaper deodorant from Savers to replace this but I probably will go back to this afterwards as it's just a great product all round.

Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter - any of the Body Shop's pink grapefruit range is a winner for me and I'm pretty gutted this is finished now. I bought this on a half price offer and I definitely begrudge paying full price for it however if it pops up on sale (ideally alongside the scrub) I will eagerly repurchase!

What have you finished lately?


  1. i just rebought the collections concealor to! ive felt lost without it the last week or so because i lost it and it was finished within the same week! :(

  2. You need to come with me and force me to buy that concealer, I really need it!


  3. I agree with the collection concealer, it's my favourite thing in my make-up bag right now. Such a God-send haha :-) xoxo


  4. Lovely pink-themed favourites!! I'm so glad I've finally seen someone blogging about that Dove deodorant, compared to other deodorants I think the smell is DELICIOUS! But it is annoying when I can't find it on offer anywhere as it can be pricey.

  5. I adore that body shop body butter :-) it smells incredible! Great post :-) Have followed you!


  6. A rather pink emptied post Charlotte ;) I just found out there's a spa really close to my new house, you game?

  9. I'm in love with The Body Shop Body Butters at the moment, especially the strawberry one, ooh and the papaya one too.. okay just all of them, they just smell soo good, and they sink in really quickly which is a massive plus for me :) Who really has the time to sit around waiting an age for moisturizer haha
