January Empties

It's empties time! I always like seeing what products people use up and whether they liked the product. 

Sunscreen!
 
We go through a lot of sunscreen in summer. 
Sun Bum is one of the few sunscreens that don't irritate Eljay's face so I stock up when it's on sale. 

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer is a long time favourite. Hubby uses it at work, he likes that it doesn't clog his pores. 

Ombra Daily Defence was my daily body sunscreen. I can't use it on my face as it irritates my eyes but it's great on my chest and arms. 

La Roche-Posay Anthelios is my go to face sunscreen as it doesn't irritate my eyes. I've gone through so many tubes and will always repurchase. 


Alpha Keri Body Butter was quite a nice moisturiser. It did nothing to change the skin on my legs, because they're normal and don't need to change.It's quite rich so was great for my dry legs. 

Ren Moroccan Rose Otto Body Lotion doesn't smell as good as I was expecting. It's a very light moisturiser so good for the mornings when I don't have time to wait around for my moisturiser to dry before I get dressed. 

Bondi Sands Hand Wash is really lovely. I like the pump tube, it smells great and wasn't drying. I'll happily purchase again. 

Kristen Ess Signature Shampoo gets so much hype and I have no idea why. It's a watery, ineffective mess. I used half the tube just trying to get enough product to clean my hair. I won't repurchase. 
 
Hask Argan Repairing Shampoo was nice, it did the job. I'd buy it again if it was on special.
 
Frank Body Stimulating Scalp Scrub I'd definitely repurchase. It feels tingly on my scalp due to the eucalyptus and made my hair feel very fresh and clean. It's not a must have product but it's nice to use.  
 

Thankyou Hand and Surface Sanitiser is one of our favourite hand sanitisers. It doesn't sting our dermatitis patches, smells nice and is regularly on sale.

Dr Bronner's Peppermint Organic Hand Sanitizer is another great sanitiser but not as easy to get hold of. I can't use the peppermint scent any more as it reminds me of the days after I had my ankle surgery and I don't want to remember those days. Post surgery when I was still on crutches I had this next to the toilet so I could cleanse my hands before I picked up the crutches. I didn't want to get toilet germs on them by touching them before I'd washed my hands, so I'd sanitise my hands first then get to the basin and wash them.

Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser was really pleasant to use, I'd happily purchase it again. I used it as a first cleanse, it's great at removing makeup and didn't irritate my eyes.

Botani Olive Soothing Cream Cleanser is just lovely. You can't go wrong with Botani products, they're beautiful. I've gone through so many of this cream cleanser and will continue to do so. 

Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Revitalising Cream was nice, it did the job. 

Saturday Skin rub-a-dub Refining Peel Gel really didn't work for my skin type. It's meant to be used on dry skin but that's way too harsh for me so I used it on wet skin. It really doesn't work on wet skin. I think this would be great for people who don't have sensitive skin.

The Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine perfume is gorgeous. I like the little handbag sized bottles. I need to pick up a few more scents in this size. 

I didn't think I was a fancy toothpaste person but after using Marvis I've changed my mind. I really like fancy toothpaste. 

Tocca Florence and Viva La Juicy were both pleasant but not scents that I'd rush out to buy.


These are all tosses, mainly due to age. 

I've had the YSL gloss, Mecca balms and Sunday Riley blush for over 7 years so they had to go. 

The MCo Makeup Remover Balm is a sticky mess and horrible to use. 

Oral B Satin Floss was awful, bits of it kept on getting stuck in between my teeth.

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask is way too harsh for my sensitive skin.
