April Empties


Can you believe it's May already? I feel like this year is really going fast, as it felt like only yesterday I was posting about my March empties! Well, I've used up a fair few products in April, including some favourites I'm going to miss!



Bioré Make-up Removing Wipes *

I use these fairly often, as Bioré is definitely one of my go-to brands. Not only are they cost effective, they're also effective in removing excess make-up before I cleanse my skin. You can read my full review on these wipes here.

Would I repurchase? I'm a big lover of this one, so yes, I would.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes *

I finished these off very early in the month, and I was so sad to see them go. They worked extremely well at removing my makeup, including hard to remove eye makeup, which is always a plus! You can read my entire review of this product here.

Would I repurchase? Absolutely! I'm in love with these removers!

Circa Home Everyday Soap in Lilac & Orchid

I received this in my very first Her Fashion Box (which you can read about here) and absolutely fell in love! I used this up really early in the month, but I already have another one that I'm saving up to use until I get a chance to head into David Jones to stock up for more! You can read my entire review of this product here.

Would I repurchase? Definitely! Again and again!


Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub & Fresh Foaming Cleanser *

This has been my favourite duo for the past few weeks, and sadly I've used up both bottles! My favourite was actually the scrub, which went a little bit faster than the cleanser, but I managed to finish that one off too.  You can read my entire review on the Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub here, and if you'd like a more in-depth review on the Fresh Foaming Cleanser, let me know!

Would I repurchase? Once I'm done testing all the skin-care I have backed up, I will definitely be buying these two again!


KMS California Free Shape Hot Flex Spray

This has been my favourite spray ever since I began blogging. I've found that it's helped my bangs stay in place and stop them from getting overly oily! It's definitely a HG hair product for me, so to finish off the entire bottle is really sad, as I haven't got a replacement yet! When I noticed I was low, I ordered online thinking I'd get it on time! Sadly, I was wrong. You can read my shockingly bad review of this product here.

Would I repurchase? Already have, and will continue to do so!


Rimmel London Glam'Eyes Mascara in Midnight Black

I realised a little while ago that majority of my mascaras are far too old to be using, and so I'm trying my best to part with them. When I opened my Glam'Eyes at the end of this month, I saw that it had completely dried out and was no longer usable - so definitely time to throw it away! I really did love this mascara anyway, and it was one of my first mascaras. (Not this bottle, don't worry!) The design just seemed so cute, and yet chic.

Would I repurchase? I have so many mascaras I can't even count them, but like I said, it was one of my first mascaras, so I would definitely repurchase again as I really did love it.



Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Enamel Repair Tooth Paste

My teeth are shocking. I hate them. Coming from practically a life time of non-brushing (or bad brushing) I now have fairly sensitive teeth that are also fairly stained, and not so strong. Wanting to be beautiful, I would always head for the whitening tooth paste to try and keep my smile looking the best. But, I realised they weren't really doing the trick, and so I needed something to help repair the enamel I'd damaged. I've been using the Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief for a little while, and I've noticed a huge difference. I'm able to eat harder things (I can actually bite into an apple now without wondering if my teeth will chip) and my teeth are looking a lot better too. My boyfriend even started using it (not that he has bad teeth) and he's noticed his teeth feel stronger. This is definitely a winner in my books!

Would I repurchase? Already have!


Swisspers Nail Polish Remover Pads

I've had these for a while, as they weren't exactly my go-to for removing polish. This was super handy to use at work though (so I didn't have to worry about having a bottle of nail polish in my hand bag, that God forbid, would leak!) I found it did it's job well! By the end of the pack, the pads did get a little bit drier each time, but that's to be expected. You can read my full review here.

Would I repurchase? Probably, for the convenience. I have a few other brands to test first, however. 

-- 

So another month of beauty products, all used up! It feels good getting rid of my old mascaras, but sad at the same time, knowing I can't buy anything new! (Which is also the case with skin care at the moment, I have far too much to review!)

Have you got an empties post? Link me to it so I can see your empties!
Have you tried any of these products? If so, what did you think?

  1. In relation to your teeth woes, I sort of had the same problem, but the more I started to make mouthwash and flossing an everyday thing, the better they got!

    1. I've been trying that too, and I think it's really helping! (Along with a good toothpaste!) It's so hard to get into the habit after so long of not doing it though haha! But thanks for the tips :D

    I have a similar teeth issue so maybe I should try that toothpaste! Mine are really sensitive and definitely not white.

  8. I'm so shocking at empties (which is why I rarely do them)!

    Great read though. I hardly use wipes anymore, but I like to keep them around for when I'm swatching for the blog. :)

    Replies
    1. Haha I used to be as well, I hate keeping the empty packaging for the entire month... :(
      I never even thought about using wipes until Sophie (Born to Buy) said she used them with swatching... now I can swatch all the time with ease haha! They work wonders!

    1. Haha! I used to be horrible with them, don't worry! I've been using up a lot these last few months because of my spending ban, I'll probably have none in the next few months! :P
