Because why not?

Empty! January 2015

31 January 2015
My empties posts are always a bit of a shock to the system for me, whenever the time comes to write up these posts it never ceases to amaze me that a whole month has past since I wrote my last one. Where did you go January??

If you prefer to watch a video than read a full post:

Dove Clinical Protection Deodorant: (Review) I love the scent of this but I don't find it to be effective enough to keep it in my routine.
Repurchase? No.

Kerastase Ciment Thermique: Love, love, love this! If your hair is fucked like mine you'd prbably love it too.
Repurhase? Yes, but I'm forcing myself to use some of my hair stash before I repurchase.

Diggers Isopropyl Alohol: Awesome spot cleanser, will never be without.
Repurchase? Already have.

Yes To Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub: Smells divine but the beads are scratchy rather than exfoliating. I ended up putting it in my shower and using it as a body wash instead, it wasn't great.
Repurhase? No.

Essenza Fuss Free Naturals Facial Cleansing Wipes: Well, it happened. I found makeup wipes that I really like. These are wonderfully soft, smell good, are super moist and remove all makeup well.
Repurchase? Yes, I believe I'm on my last full size pack of wipes so I'll likely need to buy some soon.

Manicare Nail Polish Remover: It removes nail polish!
Repurchase? Probably, I buy whatever is cheap.

Nadu Skin The First Love Set: (Review) These were silly and fun but I wouldn't use them for their actual purpose, after I had written up my post I developed an itchy patch where the mask sat on my chest so I'm really glad that this went no where near my lady garden.
Repurchase? No.

Clairol Colour Radiance Shampoo x2: Drying and doesn't help with colour maintenance.
Repurchase? No.

Aveda Invati Shampoo & Conditioner: Obviously I can't comment on how effective this duo is when it comes to retaining hair but I an comment on how they aren't suitable for all hair types, my dry hair hates them so I hate them.
Repurchase? No.

Kosmea Hydrating Rosewater Mist: The spray nozzle on this is an asshole, it misses places completely and sprays big blobs of liquid in other spots. I'm not in to it, also the actual product is a bit nothing.
Repurchase? No.

Olay Regenerist Moisturiser SPF 15: Greasy, greasy, greasy. Hate.
Repurchase? No.

Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream: Have been using this regularly day and night for over a month, the little samples I had are very generous but the product isn't effective, also it makes my skin shiny as fuck.
Repurchase? No.

Philosophy Purity Cleanser: This was ok, I kind of suspected it was breaking me out initially but that stopped quite quickly so it may have been a little purge. It's not drying and cleans fairly well but I'm not in to the scent.
Repurchase? No, there isn't anything special about it.

Weleda Skin Food: Ehh it was all right, it's good if you have seriously dry patches but the residue it leaves isn't great.
Repurchase? No, I think I have another sample to get through anyway.

Air Wick Candle: These don't burn evenly and that really pisses me off, it feels like such a damn waste! They smell so good though.
Repurchase? No.

My monthly empties posts won't be making an appearance this year, You'll only see my empties in my Project Pan updates and my Beauty Basket updates (you'll see my first of this series tomorrow) but I'll try to organise these posts so they alternate monthly.

Did you finish much this month? If you do empty posts feel free to link them in the comments!
