February Empties

E2

Another month in 2014 is already over! February has to be one of my favourite months of the year. The weather is a bit weird, my birthday is in there, and it's the shortest month ever! I actually finished a fair few products in the month of February!

E1

All the products I finished up this month!


 

E3

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation in Ivory*

This is one of my favourite go-to foundations! The coverage is fairly sheer, but it works so well with my skin! It gives a really natural finish, but I wouldn't recommend it if you have a lot of blemishes!
You can read my review on the Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation here.

Would I repurchase? I've already stocked up on a few bottles when Priceline was having it's 3 for 2 deal for Rimmel London products!

E4

Garnier Body Tonic Sugar Scrub

This was probably one of the first body scrubs I ever tried as a teenager, and I still love it to this day! This is my favourite "bath time" scrub, so I only really use it when I have a bath. It keeps my skin super smooth, and it smells delicious!

Would I repurchase? Absolutely!

E5

Bomb Cosmetics Tin Candle in Cranberry & Lime

Ahhh I love my Bomb Cosmetics candles! I've been using them like mad this month! Since my dog had puppies (she had five - we were expecting two or three!) it's been a bit of a nightmare. They have to stay indoors, so it's a bit smelly. Open windows, forever cleaning and Bomb Cosmetics are the answer to the smell! (Sorry if that's a bit TMI!)

Would I repurchase? Most likely! I have a few other scents I want to try first!

E6

John Frieda Intense After-Colour Conditioner

This is my absolute favourite conditioner. You can imagine my joy when John Frieda decided to market this as a full size conditioner! I've gone through a few of these since it was released, and I won't buy any other conditioner now! (Unless I have a particular hair care need!)

Would I repurchase? Already have!

E7

Gatineau Aqua Memory Moisture Replenish Concentrate Day/Night Serum*

I've been using this for what seems like a year now, and I was so sad to see it gone! I did go off it for a little while when my skin had a bit of a blemish attack, but once I went back on it I felt back to normal. I mostly used this in the morning, as it was so lightweight on the skin, and settled for something heavier at night.
You can read my full review on the Gatineau Serum here.

Would I repurchase? I have a few other things to test out first, but most likely I will!

E8

Rimmel London Vinyl Gloss in Lovebug

I've had this gloss for a while now, and even though it's not completely empty, I figured it was time to chuck it. I can't get much product out anyway, so it's pretty much empty. This was one of the first glosses I tried from Rimmel London and I was pretty impressed. I've grown up a bit though and my tastes have changed, I'm not much of a gloss girl anymore myself, but this one is still really nice. I find it wasn't too sticky, or anything like that.

Would I repurchase? Probably not, only because I have a few other glosses to get through first!

E9

The Body Shop Chocomania Shower Cream

Ahh Chocomania. I was so pleased when they brought it back! This is one of my favourite body washes of all time. The scent is just to die for, and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and moisturised. And chocolatey.

Would I repurchase? I already have a second bottle that I'm powering through at the moment, after that I might try something else from The Body Shop first!

E10

Johnson's Face Care Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes

These are actually my swatch wipes. I find these a little too "wet" for normal use every day on my face, but for swatching they are absolutely perfect! I have used these a few times on my face, and find that I do need to cleanse my face afterwards due to the oiliness (but hey, I would do that anyway!) so I think it's up to the individual on whether or not this would work for them, without the use of other products.

Would I repurchase? I actually got these as a bulk buy from Costco, so I don't need to repurchase for a long time - especially considering they are just for swatching! 

E11

Garnier Clean Sensitive Cleansing Wipes

I liked these wipes, but they were a tad on the dry side. I know, I'm complaining about one pack being too wet, and the other too dry. These didn't remove all traces of makeup, so it was a bit of a disappointment, however I don't use wipes alone for makeup removal, so they still did what I needed them to do.

Would I repurchase? Possibly, after I try other wipes!

E12

Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner in Black

I've gone through a few of these already, they are that great! The Maybelline Master Precise creates the tightest lines, it's so easy to do a winged liner and not mess up! I'm in love, and nothing can compare!

Would I repurchase? Forever repurchase.

-- 

So there you have it, my February empties. I think I managed to finish up a few good products this last month! I guess that means more shopping!

Have you got an empties post? If so, share it with me, I'd love to read what you're finishing up!
Have you tried any of the above products? If so, what did you think?
