February Empties


Although February was a short month, so much happened that it feels like it went on for ages! I didn't really empty out many products last month, but I love sharing them with you all the same!

Soap and Glory The Breakfast Scrub 300ml - £9.50
This is my absolute favourite exfoliator and I'm so sad every time it runs out! It contains oats, shea butter and sugar with organic cupuacu bio scrubs, bananas, honey and almond extracts. The exfoliating granules are so concentrated compared to other scrubs I've tried, you can really feel that the product is actually doing something. It also smells divine - the scent is maple syrup, which makes me think of pancakes every time!
Re-purchase? I'm now trying to use up some other scrubs, which have been squirrelled away in the bathroom cupboard, but after these have gone YES!

Lush Cupcake Fresh Face Mask 75g - £5.95
This face mask is designed for oily skin and looks and smells like melted chocolate, which I love. Unfortunately I found it a bit too drying on the combination parts of my face, but the oiler parts loved it. You can read my full review here.
Re-purchase? No - I'd rather use a face mask that will work fully with my oily/combination skin.

Colgate Max White One Toothpaste 75ml - £3.99
I bought this when it was on offer so actually only paid £2.00 for this. I hate my teeth and am always on the look out for a good quality whitening toothpaste. I know toothpaste can only do so much, but this claimed to make you "one shade whiter in one week". To be honest I really didn't notice much of an improvement - if at all.
Re-purchase? No. I've now bought White Glo to try after quite a few Twitter recommendations!

Barry M Basecoat, Topcoat and Nail Hardener All in One 10ml - £2.99
This isn't technically empty but it's getting gloopy and considering I can't actually remember buying it, I thought it was time to let go! I've also been constantly having problems with my nail varnish peeling off and another blogger suggested it could be the basecoat. I really like this one because it's multi-tasking and a great price!
Re-purchase? Yes.

What empties have you used up this month?

  5. I was incredibly disappointed by Colgate Max White One Toothpaste even though I got it on sale too - no improvment at all!
