April Empties #3


It's that time of the month again when I dig out all my empty bottles, tubes and tins and share them all with you! As always I've given a brief review of each product and whether I'd re-purchase. 

COLAB Dry Shampoo in New York 200ml - £3.50
COLAB is officially my new favourite dry shampoo! It refreshes hair with a super lightweight formula yet still adds volume, plus the scents are lovely. New York is a fruity offering, with notes of apple and melon. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes, but I've bought the floral scented Paris to try this time.

Laidbare products are fantastic quality for an affordable price and this hand cream is no exception; packed with moisture boosting ingredients like Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Sunflower Seed Oil. It also has a light, buttery scent, so perfect if you're not a fan of overly perfumed creams.
Re-purchase? I would - but not right now as I have a hand cream backlog!!

Sparkling Pomegranate is a gorgeous fruity scent that's sweet yet sophisticated, with a hint of refreshing citrus. This is just perfect for taking you through from Spring to Summer! Full review here.
Re-purchase? No, but only because they have so many other amazing scents I'd like to try!

This is my go-to eyeshadow for the working day - it has that long wearing, creamy formula that stays put and Cool Mink is a pretty but subtle shimmery taupe-brown shade that really brightens up my eyes.
Re-purchase? Yes I already have!

The Pixi Glow Tonic is one of my most re-purchased beauty products ever, if not the most. I just don't have any desire to try any other chemical exfoliators and I certainly don't intend on going back to using manual exfoliators again. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Of course.

I'm very impressed with how long this powder lasted for considering I used it daily. It's a talc free, finely milled pressed powder that gets rid of oil and shine without adding any colour to the skin. It's quite compact and has a mirror in the lid, so is perfect for travelling and popping in your handbag. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes.

This is a really nice shower gel but what takes it up a notch is the scent - warm, woody and spicy, thanks to the blend of Ginger Oil, Tuberose and Cedarwood. I loved using this on those cold, chilly mornings.
Re-purchase? It's way more than I would usually spend on a shower gel, but maybe as a treat in the future.

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

  6. Oh wow, such an impressive selection of empties! :) The Colab dry shampoo has quickly become my favourite too, and I also love the Laidbare hand cream - I've been applying it to my feet every evening to get them sandal-ready :)
