I have my first monthly empties post. I’ll show you all the products I either used up or discarded during the month, along with mini-reviews.

Jumbled box of July empties

The Good:

The Body Shop Body Butter in Coconut Softsoap Body Hydrating Wash in Body Butter Heavenly Vanilla

The Body Shop Body Butter in Coconut – It’s so rich and moisturizing, but it does feel a bit greasy when first applied. I love the scent though!
Softsoap Body Hydrating Wash in Body Butter Heavenly Vanilla – So very rich, it’s like washing with heavy moisturizer. The scent is pretty light considering vanilla is usually overpowering.

Hard Candy Ginormous Lash Mascara in Carbon Black Hempz Age Defying Herbal Moisturizer

Hard Candy Ginormous Lash Mascara in Carbon Black – I must buy a full sized tube, I loved how thick my lashes looked with this mascara
Hempz Age Defying Herbal Moisturizer – A little went a long way. It felt very thin, but absorbed quickly and left my skin very soft.

St Ives Exfoliating Apricot Scrub San Francisco Moisturizing Body Lotion in Sugared Citrus

St Ives Exfoliating Apricot Scrub – A standard gritty scrub, this does the trick with little scent.
San Francisco Moisturizing Body Lotion in Sugared Citrus – A hotel sample I picked up, I loved the sweet citrus scent.

The Not-So-Good:

Ardene Kohl Eyeliner in Purple and Green

Ardene Kohl Eyeliner in Purple and Green – Hard to apply with little colour payoff, these are being discarded.

Pretty Yummy Whipped Body Butter in Orchid Pomegranate Balea Masks

Pretty Yummy Whipped Body Butter in Orchid Pomegranate – I loved the scent, but the textured seemed a little crusty and it felt quite greasy.
Balea Masks – check out my full reviews here and here

Exact Intensive Conditioner in Grape Scent Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moistuizer in Medium

Exact Intensive Conditioner in Grape Scent – The scent was like super strong Welsh’s grape juice and left my hair feeling dry.
Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moistuizer in Medium – Way too dark for my fair skin.

John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Rusk Repair Deep Shine Color

John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine – I used the full shampoo and conditioner (used that up last month) because it was expensive, and while the first half was okay, the last half seemed to slowly dry my hair out.
Rusk Repair Deep Shine Color – Sample was large enough for one use, and while I didn’t hate it, it didn’t have any immediate difference.

There you have it, the good and the bad products I used or discarded this month. Have you tried any of the products I listed?

  1. The Body Shop’s body butters are really nice, and I have some Hemps hand cream. Those are the only products I’ve tried out of this list.

  2. Oh I love love empties posts! Disappointing eyeliners but I love the Body Shop body butters too, I have a jumbo tub of the satsuma which is my favourite. Those face masks seemed awful sigh. I’m just getting my empties post together too, should be online tomorrow maybe! 🙂
