June Empties

Sometimes when I'm writing my empties post I sit here staring at the screen trying to figure out what to write about a product. They are usually the products that do the job but aren't outstanding in a good or bad way. So I decided I'll be listing them and not writing a mini review other than to mention that the do the job. I'm sure this will save me hours spent staring at the computer screen!

Coconut Revolution Cleansing Gel - This is one of those products I was talking about above. It does the job. Surprisingly it didn't smell like coconut.

Biyani Organics Frankinsence and Jasmine Hydrating Face Cream - I loved this. It smells beautiful and is hydrating without being greasy.

Sudocream - Whilst I primarily used this as a nappy rash cream for Eljay, it also works really well on pimples and irritated skin.

Biyani Organics Rosehip and Raspberry Serum - Another Biyani Organics product that I loved. This has just the right texture for a serum, not too oily and not too dry. It absorbs quickly and kept my skin feeling soft and hydrated.

Subtle Energies Facial Blend - This is one of my holy grail face serums because it smells amazing. I've already started on another bottle.

Palmer's Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub - Did the trick.

Clinique Take the Day Off -I'd definitely consider buying this next time they have a gwp. It gently and easily removed my eye make-up and didn't irritate even when my eyes were having their hayfever dummy spit.

Sisley Intense Anti-Aging Hydration - I got one use out of this which wasn't enough to form an opinion. 

Shiseido Bio Peformance Advanced Super Revitalising Cream - This is very rich and smells like an old fashioned, luxurious product. I liked it a lot.

Crabtree and Evelyn Honey Lip Salve - This is lip balm perfection, so naturally it's been discontinued and I can't find it anywhere.
Crop Double Sided Facial Wipes - I'm not really sold on the exfoliating face wipes thing, so I just use the smooth side, which is nice. They're large wipes so I can easily clean my whole face and they were reasonably priced too. 

MMS Make My Hair Smell Delish - MMS doesn't exist anymore. This is a hair perfume that I loved the smell of but never used, so in the end I used it as an air freshener.

Milk Face Cleanser - I've used this cleanser before. It smells like the Australian bush (that's a good thing), easily removes my make-up and is gentle on my skin. It's not a favourite but I will buy it again.

Swisspers Facial Cleansing Wipes -I'd forgotten how great the Swisspers wipes are until I started using them again. They're the perfect size, the fabric (tissue?) is really thick and they don't irritate. Winning.
Sanctuary Spa Hot Sugar Scrub - One of my holy grail scrubs. I've mentioned it enough times that I won't bother talking about it again. You can read my full review here.

Gaia Bath and Body Wash - It's not often that I use soap/body wash on the boys, but if I do it's usually Gaia as it's natural, super gentle and it doesn't irritate their skin. It also works well as a shampoo.

Subtle Energies Revive Body and Hand Wash - I'm yet to meet a Subtle Energies product that I don't like. Revive Body and Hand Wash is a gentle, beautiful smelling product. I used it as a hand wash and it didn't dry out my skin at all. The smell lingers for a while after I use it which is lovely. You can read my full review here.

Audra James shower gel - If you haven't tried any Audra products yet, what are you waiting for? Audra made this for me to use on my pitts as an anti bacterial stink stopper. I need to get another bottle before summer.
L'oreal Casting Creme Gloss conditioner - I love this little conditioner, it makes my hair so soft. Pity it only comes with my hair dye. At least it's big enough that I get three uses out of it.

Rimmel ScandalEyes mascara and Artdeco mascara - These were both nice, every day mascaras. There was nothing terrible and nothing amazing about either of them.

These are all tosses, mostly because they'd expired. I've already replaced the Lanolips and Crazy Rumors balms.

The Little Green Soothing Balm gets a special mention. I bought it two months ago and it's gone off already which is ridiculous. I kept it in a cool environment, it wasn't exposed to heat or light (other than bedroom light) and it lasted two months. Crap. It wasn't cheap either, that little stick cost me $20. Needless to say I won't be buying Little Green products again.
