Monthly Empties: August 2017

Finally I am back! I feel it has been ages (probably because it has!) since I have been able to sit down and write a post. I missed blogging so much, but life kept me busy during th elast couple months so I wasn´t able to blog. Anyway what better way to rekindle my blogging love flame than with an empties post. Hope you enjoy!

Balea Cleaning Oil // will repurchase
Please find a detailed review here
Imperial Leather “Nourishing Shea & Orange” foamburst // would repurchase
I absolutely love this shower foam. It is without a doubt the best foam I have tried out, especially considering the price. The foam is super soft yet thick enough which makes the handling very easy under the shower. Rituals foam comes out very runny almost like water, making me probably lose half of it under the shower. The Imperial leather comes ou as a gel making application just so much easier. The Shea & Orange scent was nice, not too intense. The perfect little luxurious treat under the shower.
Dove “Winter Care” LE shower gel // would repurchase
I love dove shower gels. I am quite picky when it comes to shower gel as I have dry skin. Therefore I am always looking for shower gels that provide some sort of moisture. In the end I always go back to these. The scent was fresh and creamy. Perfect for winter. PS: I was amazed how long I could smell the scent on my skin! Big thumbs up!

SYOSS “Invisible Hold” Hairspray // might repurchase
I mainly use hairspray when I curl my hair. Therefore I like a spray that is easy to brush out - when I am going for my second day curls - yet is able to make them stay in place. This was good but nothing special.

Dove “Advanced Oxygen” shampoo & conditioner // will not repurchase
They were good but I don’t think they did anything special for my hair. Just a regular shampoo and conditioner therefore I won’t repurchase.

Dove “Verbena and Pomegranate” deodorant // will not repurchase
I love the scent in the shower gel, as a deodorant I am not so sure. I think there are better ones out there. If you want to try a Dove deodorant, try the cucumber scented over this one.

What are your empties?

Monthly empties: February 2017

I hope you all had a great last month. Mine for sure was, especially because I managed to finish some long overdue products.

Palmolive Aroma Sensations “Feel good” shower gel // would repurchase
I am actually quite impressed. I love this smell, it reminds of on holiday at the beach.
Didn’t dry out my skin thus passed the test. I like the smell so much that I would actually consider repurchasing it. Although I have 10 other shower gels waiting to be used.

Frizz Ease Full Repair Hair treatment // would repurchase
I loved this. In fact I wasn’t expecting to love this as much as I did. But this hair treatment made my hair super straight and lightweight. Will definitely repurchase once I finish my other hair treatments.

Balea LE “Apfel & Zimt” Peeling // would repurchase
Other product I was pleasantly surprised with. I love the apple scent. I was afraid the cinnamon scent would be too strong but that wasn’t the case at all. For under 2 Euros I could see myself repurchasing it, if it comes out again. 

Balea “Eden Garden” Foaming Handwash // would repurchase
Foaming hand washes are so much fun and a nice change to the “regular” hand washes if you ask me. The scent was floral yet not to strong. Just lovely.

Dove "Pure Pflege" deep conditioner // might repurchase
This worked so much better than the “oil deep conditioner from L’Oréal Elvital. My hair actually felt very soft and being cheaper than the L’Oréal Elvital one I would consider repurchasing this in the future.

Nivea “happy time” roll-on deodorant // might repurchase
Granted I used most of this over summer, I love the sweet orange scent. In fact, I liked it so much that I bought the shower gels as well. The deodorant did its job and I will consider repurchasing this next year again.

Got2be “Guardian Angel” heat styling spray // will not repurchase
Apart from the fact that my pump broke, I had the feeling that this dried out my hair whenever I used it. There is still a little bit in the bottle, but I will be throwing this out.

Garnier "Schadenlöscher" Hair Mask // will not repurchase
Horrible. Honestly horrible. I had such high expectations because I had heard that the US version of this was good. Well the European is not. This didn’t do anything good for my hair. Towards the end I had to force myself to use this up. I kind of had the feeling it would dry my hair more than it would nourish it.

Make-up Empties 2016

After seeing quite a bit of YouTubers doing a video on their 2016 make-up empties I decided to share mine with you as well.
Granted, some of the products used belong to my daily makeup routine, which is why I find it easier to use up mascaras, powders or concealers. Lipstick/gloss, eyeshadows and blushes are harder to use up for me because I tend to use many different shades throughout the year. Finishing those types of products therefore takes me a lot longer but I am happy to announce that I managed to finish some of them as well.
In total I used up 32 products worth about 241 Euros. I could stare at the picture for hours, its so neat to see the amount of make-up you are able to use up and looking at my current make-up drawer I still have enough for the next ten years or room for some new goodies.
Anyway here are the numbers per category:
Foundation: 2
Concealer: 4
Powder: 3
Blush: 2
Primer: 3
Mascara: 3
Eyeshadow: 4
Eyeliner: 5
Brow products: 3
Lipgloss: 2
Lipstick: 1
