March empties

Three months into the year and I'm still going strong with my empties. I've managed to finish another make-up product too! If only I could finish a lip gloss or lipstick. That is going to be my aim for this year, to finish up some of my lip products. 

I'm still in throw out mode, I've thrown out or given away quite a lot of products that I just don't use, there's no point having them hanging around the house going to waste. Unfortunately I didn't think to take a photo of everything that I threw or gave away. 

Aviva Deep Clean Exfoliant - Being a lover of sugar and salt scrubs, this just didn't cut it for me. SK-II Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser - The standout thing about this cleanser is the beautiful rose scent. If it wasn't for the scent it would just like any other foaming facial cleanser.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Foundation -When I first got this I didn't like it so put it away in my cupboard. I got it out again a few weeks ago and really love it. It's quite hydrating so wouldn't be very good to use in summer, but it's perfect for the cooler months.

L'Oreal Age Perfect Cleansing Wipes -Lovely wipes, they're nearly as good as my favourite wotnot wipes.
OP Therapy Sea Mineral Wash - I really like this wash, it's great for when my skin is sensitive or I have eczema. You can read my full review here

Clairol Nice'n Easy Colour Seal - This is a great product, it makes my hair feel silky soft.

Kosmea Replenishing Moisture Cream - I liked this but didn't find it very hydrating. It's not a product I'll buy again. It'd probably be okay for people with oily skin, but for my normal to dry skin it's not hydrating enough. 

Natio Meditate Shower Gel - Love the scent of this, it's so nice.

Declare Soft Cleansing Milk - I got this in a big bag of products I won by filling out a survey. I'd never heard of Declare and still don't know anything about them, however this is a lovely cleanser for sensitive skin. I'm a big fan of milk cleansers, they are super gentle on the skin and I love the way my skins feels after I use them.

Dermalogica Age Smart Renewal Lip Complex - This smells like berries and tastes pretty good too. It's a nice, hydrating lip balm but imho not worth the price.

Jurlique Jasmine Hand Cream - This is one of my favourite hand creams, it smells amazing and is really hydrating. It can be a little tacky so I use it as a night treatment.

Nivea Rich Nourishing Body Moisturiser - This was surprisingly good. It is really hydrating but sinks in quickly and doesn't leave any residue. My skin felt soft and moisturised all day when I was using this.

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier - Nice but not amazing. I prefer my MooGoo oil cleanser.

Perfumatory Vanilla Moon Perfume - Love this, it smells so good!
These are my tosses.
The 14 Day Nail Shield was crap, it was really difficult to apply and peeled off the day after I put it on. 
I love The Body Shop lip balm but it tastes bad so I just don't use it. 
The Ardell brow gel is just manky.
Threw out the Model Co because I won't use it and in the pot is an unidentified lipstick.


  1. Great post! :) I agree, why keep a product if you know you'll never use it?

  2. Great post, you used up a lot of products!
