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.

What are your empties?

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
