Empties #5

Not too many empties in this post but, considering my last Empties post was only last month its a bit worrying I'm getting through so many products. Oops. So lets get started...

Sanctuary Spa Body Scrub

I love Sanctuary Spa as the scent is so luxurious and different to anything else I use. This scrub has lasted me ages so I can't complain that I'm out of it already, however I do have a second bottle waiting in my stores to be used. This is a lovely exfoliator which also lathers up well in the shower. The scent is the signature Sanctuary Spa scent and, for some, this could be a bit overpowering but I love it. A product I will always repurchase.

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution

I really like using Micellar Waters to remove my makeup and although I like this one, the packaging has put me right off. The bottle is quite big which is good as you get a lot for your money however the way the lid has been designed means that it is hard to control the amount of solution you pour onto the cotton wool pad, often meaning that you end up with too much of the product. I do have another of these waiting to be used as they were on Buy One Get One Free (would be rude not too hey?!) however I think in future I will stick to a different brand.

Nivea Happy Time Deodorant

Ok so a bit random to include a deodorant as, obviously, these can be used up quite quickly, especially in the warmer months, but the scent of this one is amazing. I don't know why but I don't like most of the female deodorants smells however this one is very summery and fruity and the scent really hangs about. As a deodorant it does as good a job as any but I thought I would include it in this because I have really enjoyed using it.

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation

I'm so sad this product has been used up, it has to be one of my favourite foundations. I actually included it in my last monthly favourites. The foundation is light to medium coverage but the consistency is thin and light on the skin and super easy to blend and work with. I will definitely be repurchasing this one.

Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Toner

This is a staple product in my skin care routine. I love Simple products and they seem to work really well with my skin (*touches wood*) so I always end up repurchasing the products as I know how well they work for my skin.

Simple Kind To Skin Eye Makeup Remover

This is another lovely Simple product to use. It is very gentle on the eyes and, unlike many eye make up removers, isn't oily. I use this more on a daily basis and save the oily removers for heavier make up as this is much more gentle on the eyes. I also don't need to rub the cotton wool on my eyes with this which is obviously a bonus.

The Body Shop Moroccan Rose Body Butter

I think my heart broke a little when I used the last of this. Ok, so slightly over dramatic but you get the effect I'm going for. This body butter smells amazing, has the creamiest consistency ever and absorbs pretty quickly. For a fairly cheap product this very much has a high end feel to it which I love. I wish I had bought a few of these as I don't think they stock them anymore but on my next trip into town I will definitely be looking for a replacement!

Have you liked/disliked any of these products? I would love to know!


  1. Completely agree with you about the packaging of L'Oreal, the Garnier micellar water is much better! That Revlon foundation sounds good and so does the Simple eye makeup remover, I'm desperate for a non-oily and gentle makeup remover!

    Efflorescent Dream

    1. Yea ive been using that and I totally agre with you :) Yea the eye makeuremover is great, im not a huge fan of oily based make up removers anyay but sometimes it is necessary xx

  2. Such a pretty blog, i love it ! Glad I checked you out ! x
