April Empties #2

Hope you've all had a good April! I worked my way through a fair few products this month, so without further ado, here's my thoughts on each one...

Simply Home Yankee Candle in Vanilla Frosting 538g - £13.00
Technically I used this up in March, but forgot to include it in the post - oops! This has a quite a sweet vanilla scent but I really like it and think it's a scent that works all year round.
Re-purchase? I would definitely buy this scent again.

Melt Luxury Glass Jar Candle in Eden* - £21.00
The scent of this candle is very fresh; woody but slightly sweet, so I think it is a nice scent for the Autumn or Spring seasons. I really like the design on the jar too. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Not at the moment due to the high end price.

Girlz Only Dry Shampoo in Dawn til Dusk 150ml - £1.50
This is a pretty regular empty of mine! I do like Batiste but I think this dry shampoo is just as good as Batiste's standard versions, plus it's cheaper and overall you do get more ml for your £. Dawn til Dusk is my favourite Girlz Only offering as it has an uplifting citrus scent. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes.

Organic Surge Citrus Mint Shower Gel 250ml* - £4.35
If you want a gorgeously scented, SLS free, affordable shower gel then look no further. I love the blend of citrus and mint together, which is perfect to use in the mornings as it's such a revitalising scent. My other half stole it away in the end as he liked it so much!
Re-purchase? I have way too many shower gels to even consider buying any right now, but in the future, yes.

Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel 100g - £4.65
Ahhhh this is such a lovely product! I hope Lush release it at Christmas again this year. The formula is quite thick - actually quite jam like! - and the scent is beautiful. It's primarily floral but with a hint of sweet lemon. I may even prefer this to Snow Fairy...
Re-purchase? If it's released, yes - though I'll probably wait until the Boxing Day sale again to get it cheap!

Antipodes Divine Face Oil 30ml - £18.99
It's no secret that I love this stuff. It's hydrating, re-balancing, softening, soothing, plumping, scar reducing... all with a bunch of natural ingredients, many of which are organic. My skin drinks it.
Re-purchase? I ordered another bottle as soon as I knew this one was getting low.

Macadamia Deep Repair Masque 30ml - £3.75
I received this sachet at a blogger event. A little goes a long way, meaning this lasted for many, many uses. This intensive conditioner smells absolutely amazing and makes my hair so soft and silky - I feel like I've been to the salon after I've used it!
Re-purchase? 100% yes! In fact a 250ml tub turned up at my door just the other day...

What products have you used up this month? Are you a fan of any of the above?

    1. Thanks Sandra! Organic Surge have some amazing products, I just can't believe how cheap they are xx

  2. I am going to crack out my little bottle of Antipodes oil today, you can't beat a good face oil! :) Xx

    1. Ooh let me know what you think of it! xx

  3. Ok that's reminded me to get hold of the Antipodes oil when I've finished my current stash (or even before - get me!) - must try it! Also the Macadamia Repair mask looks like a winner xx

    1. There's often discount codes available for FeelUnique or Naturismo - I buy Antipodes from both depending on this! The Macadamia is just brilliant - I can't rate it enough xx

  4. I'm the same with LUSH ltd ed stuff - always wait for the sales! :D x
