March Empties


A whole month has passed since my last empties, and boy it's been a long one! March was so full that it almost felt as though it went on for a little longer than the average month, but that's probably because of all the crazy weather Melbourne has been having! We had the entire four seasons in one month!

I've been using up a few products this March, so let's have a look at what I finished off... 



Smart Skin Scented Cleansing Wipes

I won these from Sarah's giveaway early January (see my winning's here), but didn't want to open them until I used up my other open packets. She mentioned these were her Holy Grail cleansing wipes, and after using them, I can definitely see why! I was sad to see these finish, as I was really enjoying them. At first I was a little skeptical because they were "scented" but the scent was so pleasant and neutral that it didn't bother me in the slightest!
Would I repurchase? I think I'd repurchase these again if I ever run out of cleansing wipes to review!



Lux Exfoliating Body Wash in Pomegranate Seeds & Palm Milk

I used up another bottle of this in the Shea Butter and Caramel a few months back, and was thoroughly impressed. Sadly, I felt that this one lacked that same spark that I seemed to find in the other one. I found myself needing to use a lot more of this to get the job done, and it did leave my skin feeling a little drying. It wasn't all around bad, it just didn't live up to the other scent.
Would I repurchase? Probably not in this scent.



John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo & Conditioner

Having such long hair, it's a little bit of a struggle to keep it voluminous  so I'm constantly trying out new volumising products to see what's right for my hair. I picked this up, and really loved it. The only problem I had with this shampoo & conditioner combo is that it didn't help maintain my hair colour - but then that's not really what it's for!
Would I repurchase: yes! Next time I don't have dyed hair, or want to go back to my natural hair colour.



Dove
Minimising Anti-Perspirant Deodorant in Wild Rose

I purchased this a few months back due to a sale at Priceline, where these babies were only 99cents! Sadly, this was my last one in this type, and for some reason not a lot of other places sell this particular type! I have other Dove deodorants waiting for me to use, however, so I'll give some other types a go and see how I like them!
Would I repurchase? Yes, again and again! This has to be one of my favourites!



Eau Thermale Avene Thermal Spring Water

I finished up this mini can during the Melbourne Heat Wave, as it was the perfect way to cool off! I even got my boyfriend liking it, and my puppies! (Well, one of them! The other one didn't particularly like being sprayed in the face!) I decided on a cheaper alternative for my doggies, however, and just got a spray bottle with normal water - and kept the beautiful Avene Thermal Spring Water for myself!
Would I repurchase? Yes, next heat wave! 



Bourjois Paris Volume Clubbing Mascara

Wow I've had this one for a long time, which is why I decided it's time to chuck it! (A bit longer than the usual six months, oops!) I remember when my sister and I first discovered how wonderful Bourjois mascaras were, and I have to say they have remained a favourite of mine ever since. The Volume Clubbing gave me serious volume, but next time I think I'll try out the waterproof version!
Would I repurchase? Yes, I love this mascara, but when I'm done using all the other unused mascaras in my drawer first!


Batiste Dry Shampoo in Big & Bouncy

Like I said earlier, I've been experimenting with products that keep my hair voluminous  as well as looking natural and clean! The Batiste Dry Shampoo in Big & Bouncy did just that, and really helped with the volume! I've tried a few of their other scents but none of them gave me the volume that this one did, so I'm gravitating towards this one! The scent is also really neutral, and not too girly for my boyfriend!
Would I repurchase? Yes, definitely!

Another month gone, another set of empties! Nothing too interesting this week, as I already have backups for all of these products in my bathroom cupboard! (No sneaky shopping for me!)

Have you written an empties post this month yet? If so, link me to it so I can have a read!
Have you tried any of these products before? If so, did you like them? Let me know your thoughts!

  11. I love Avene, I keep a small bottle in my purse. Great for an afternoon pick-me-up and essential for summer to cool down as you mention! Even though it's just water in a can I find it so versatile and the nozzle is amazing for dispersing an ultra-fine mist :)

    1. Ohh it's such a great idea to keep, especially when you've been working all day!
      I agree, even though it's practically "just water" it's still worth the money! :)
