January Empties

E2

Now that we've already made it to February, I felt it time to share my January Empties! For those keen readers, you might have noticed I did not have a December Empties. This was because most of what I used up were samples that I threw away overseas, and the very few things I finished in December, I just waited and decided to include them this time around!
E1

All of the products I finished up!





E3

Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser *

This has become my absolute favourite! I received this in a goody bag when I went to a Lush event, and I've never looked back! I use this religiously now, and it works so well! It removes all of my makeup, and I've never experienced breakouts using it! I've heard a lot of mixed reviews, and I know some people don't particularly like the way this product works, but for me, I do!

Would I repurchase? I already have repurchased a big tub!
E4

Formula 10.0.6 Keep Me Clean Clarifying Facial Wipes

These I actually finished in December, and I didn't mind them. They were wet enough and not too dry, but I found they didn't remove as much of my makeup as I would have liked.

Would I repurchase? Maybe. I'm on a quest to try every makeup remover wipe available, so I might try these again if I see them on sale?
E5

Swisspers Facial Cleansing Wipes in Cucumber

I wasn't overly impressed with these, but I didn't dislike them either. They did what they were supposed to do, they didn't smell bad, and they removed most of my makeup. I've tried better, but I've tried worse.

Would I repurchase? Probably not, but I might if they were on sale.
E6

Lush Dreamwash Shower Smoothie *

I actually got this for my boyfriend at a Lush event, but ended up using most of it myself as he hated the idea of a body wash being in a tub. It was so moisturising and soft, and smelt amazing! But, I have to agree with him, in that it was super annoying taking it out of the tub to use!

Would I repurchase? Maybe.
E7

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel

Ahh Snow Fairy again! I know I said last time in my November Empties that I didn't much care for the scent, but it did grow on me. I ended up picking up another bottle during Christmas, and used it all up. It really did grow on me, and I'm a bit upset I didn't stock up since this is limited edition.

Would I repurchase? Yes!
E8

Lush Twilight Shower Gel

This was just a baby bottle that I picked up during Halloween, and I ended up taking this overseas with me. I love Twilight, the scent is so gorgeous and it makes my skin feel amazing. I save this and only use it before bed, as the lavender helps me calm down and sleep better!

Would I repurchase? Yes! Again and again!
E9

Femfresh Daily Intimate Wash

This is the first time I've ever mentioned feminine hygiene products on this blog! I'm not a prude or anything, but I don't actually get my period (TMI, I know!) so I don't often talk about those kinds of lady problems. But, I find that using the Femfresh Daily Intimate Wash really makes life a lot more pleasant, if you know what I mean. Enough said.

Would I repurchase? Yes!
E10

Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser *

I actually fell in love with this cleanser after a while, and was a bit disappointed to see it finish. (I wasn't repurchasing at the time as I have a few to review waiting for me to use!) This kept my skin really clear, and in conjunction with the scrub, really made my skin beautiful!

Would I repurchase? Possibly after trying other skincare. I may fall in love with something else! 

E11

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Scrub *

Much like the cleanser I just mentioned, I fell in love with the scrub! I actually liked the scrub a little better (I know, I'm biased towards scrubs!) as I felt it worked just as well with other products, whereas the cleanser was definitely better with the scrub and not so good with others. I've switched to something harsher for the summer as my skin is producing a lot more oil, but I'd probably gravitate towards this one again!

Would I repurchase? Yes, probably!

So there we have it, two months worth of empties! I noticed I used up a lot of Lush, and a lot of body washes in the past month!

What have you used up this month? Have you got an empties post yet? If so, link me up!
Have you tried any of these products? If so, what did you think?

    1. Thank you! And I don't get them ever, actually. I actually have the contraceptive rod in my arm called the Implanon. It doesn't do the same for everyone, but for me it's put a stop to periods altogether! It's pretty great haha! xx

    1. Thanks Sheri! I have the contraceptive rod in my arm called Implanon! It doesn't always stop periods, just for some girls, so I definitely was lucky haha! xx

  6. I don't get my period either. Due to the fact that its way too painful for me to handle, and I get really over emotional to the point where I have almost tried to kill myself. I haven't had my period in about 2 years.

    1. Oh wow that's awful, Brontie :(
      I got the Implanon which stopped mine completely, it definitely does my life a lot easier, especially as I have to deal with depression, so mixing my hormones and depression isn't great!

  7. Good work.. I need to try more Lush!! x

  8. I might just have to purchase Lush Twilight Shower Gel now after this review! I wish I used products enough to actually have an empties post on my blog!:( x

  9. I've heard mixed reviews on the Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser, so I'm on the fence about trying it. I really want to find my HG cleanser!

  10. Great post! I love the Snow Fairy! They stock it in July for Christmas in July so you can stock up then :)

  11. A lot of Lush empties! I'm often curious but I don't know how the products would agree with my sensitive skin - I'm a bit of a Lush virgin! Lol
