March Empties

Now that we're halfway through April, it's high time I talked about my March empties.


Edible Beauty Velvet Coffee Body Butter
If you're in the market for a luxe body butter, look no further. It smells like fresh coffee and is beautiful to use. I received it as a gwp when I purchased the Luminous Angel Drops. 
At $55 for 100ml it's not something that I'll be purchasing again, but it was beautiful to use. 

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme
I was so glad to see the bottom of the tub, Night Fix Pads Extreme are not a favourite of mine. I didn't find them effective at all, they did nothing. The First Aid Beauty pads are so much better.

Issey Miyake Perfume
Issey Miyake is one of my all time favourite perfumes. I wore it on my wedding day and have been saving it, but this bottle is seven years old, so needed to be finished. I'll replace it soon.


The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel
Oh how I love the Satsuma range. Whenever it's re-released I pick up a few pieces and savour them for as long as I can. As this was my last satsuma product I'm now eagerly awaiting it's next return.

SkinFood NZ Gel Cleanser
SkinFood NZ have recently launched in Australia and I was lucky enough to receive some of their products to review. I've been using the gel cleanser as my night time make-up remover and loved it. It doesn't irritate my eyes, easily removes all my make-up and isn't drying. My dry skin usually doesn't agree with gel cleansers, however I have no issue with this one. I'll happily repurchase. 

Eve Lom Cleanser
I still don't understand the hype this gets. It's a balm cleanser, it smells strange and doesn't do anything different to the other balms cleansers available. Audra James and Kiss Ready Skin make balm cleansers that are natural and a lot nicer than the Eve Lom one. 

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant
For years I've had a love hate relationship with powder exfoliants, but I've finally figured out how to use them. I alwayso struggled to get the right mix of powder to water, it'd either be too dry or totally wet. Now I know the secret. All I do is wet my hands, pour some powder in then rub my hands together. Easy. 


Sanctum Conditioner for Treated Hair
I love this conditioner, I've repurchased it countless times.

MooGoo Moothpaste
I grabbed this when I saw it on sale at the chemist. It's not love. There's nothing wrong with Moothpaste, I just prefer my Grant's toothpaste.

The Aromatherapy Co Rose and Patchouli Antibacterial Hand Sanitiser
Back when I was using hand sanitisers all the time, this was my favourite. The scent is beautiful and it's not at all drying. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be available anymore.

Tarte Pack Your Bags 911 undereye rescue patches
Slowly but surely I'm working my way through every eye mask on available. I particularly like these ones, they have instant results and make my eye area look refreshed and bright.

Kiss Ready Skin Omega Tropical Body Scrub
The scent! It's amazing! I like to use this as a face scrub, I prefer sugar or salt scrubs for my body. As a face scrub this is beautiful, it has a very fine texture and makes my skin feel very smooth.

Body Blendz Collagen Eye Mask Kit
These masks are lovely and I'll definitely be buying them. (They were sent to me for review.)
I like to use them in the morning before I put my make-up on as they make my eye area look bright and awake. 

Maybelline Sponge
This was crap, just crap. 

Round Cotton Pads
I'm going to switch to material pads so that I can wash and reuse them, much better for the environment.
