February Empties

Empties, February Empties, Beauty Blogger, Beauty

I honestly can't believe February has come to an end already. It feels like just yesterday I was stressing about Christmas! This month has gone by incredibly slow for me. I've been at home for the past two weeks, feeling very unwell, so it's seemed to really drag on. Hopefully I'll be feeling a bit better in March! Now, onto the empties...

All the products I used up this month. I finally used up a few products I was trying to get rid of, so that's a plus, but aside from that I felt like I didn't use all that much this time around.

Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Toner

This was my favourite toner for a long time, but by the end of it, I was really hanging out for it to finish up. I have a few other toners I've been dying to try out, but didn't want to start a new bottle whilst this baby still had a little way to go. I'm sad to see it finished, but relieved all at once.
Would I repurchase? Possibly, after trying a few other toners, if this is still my favourite I will go back to it.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

I think these pop up in majority of my empties. These, along with the night version, are my all time favourite wipes. I can't see myself actively buying a new brand any time soon (since I bought a big box of these ones from Costco so I'm kind of set...) but should another brand happen to find it's way into my bathroom, I will try it.
Would I repurchase? I won't need to for a while, but yes, I would.

Priceline Round Cotton Pads

I'm 100% sure these have been discontinued, or changed packaging. I loved these ones, and the new Priceline ones (which are listed as a different brand but I'm pretty sure they're still in house) seem a bit expensive.
Would I repurchase? Would if I could. I'll try the new brand but for now I'm trying out cheaper alternatives.

Lush Big Solid Conditioner

I had extremely high hopes for this conditioner. I use the Lush Big shampoo and I absolutely adore it. My boyfriend uses a solid shampoo and loves it. So, I figured that the conditioner that is supposed to be paired with the shampoo that I use would be pretty awesome. Considering it was solid, I was a little turned off as I'm a bit scared of the solid shampoos, but once I tried my boyfriend's, I decided to grab the conditioner. Sadly, it left me feeling a little flat. I don't know if I was using it wrong, or if I got a dud, but it didn't do all that much for me. It was average at best.
Would I repurchase? Unfortunately not.

Avon Naturals Shower Gel in Orchid and Blueberry

I had a few of these Avon shower gels lying around. By the time I got to the end, I was relieved to be able to try some new shower gels that I've picked up recently. Usually I love the Avon shower gels, but I find they can aggravate my skin if I've got any kind of pre-existing skin irritations. Not great for sensitive skin sadly. I still love them though, and come winter when I'm not chaffed all over, I'll drift back to these.
Would I repurchase? More than likely, as they are so cheap.

Colgate Total Dental Floss

I love my dental floss. Having so many teeth problems, I find keeping floss handy is always a good idea. TMI but I often get food stuck in my teeth, which can sometimes hurt. This floss lasted forever, even though I used it extremely often. Always got the job done.
Would I repurchase? Already have.

Colgate Sensitive Pro Relief Enamel Repair Tooth Paste
This has been my go-to tooth paste for a while now. I felt it really did what it says it's supposed to do, and helped my enamel whilst also helping my sensitivity.
Would I repurchase? Sadly it was not on special and is fairly expensive. Another brand's version of this was on sale though, so I picked that up. I'll see how I go, but I can see myself coming back to Colgate.

Not a lot of empties this month but a few basic necessities were all used up. As I mentioned I was sick this month, so not a lot of makeup or fun things got used. Have you written an empties post for this month? Link below as I'd love to read it.

Have you tried any of the above products? If so, what are your thoughts?
