Empties | Products I've used up {July}

Products I've used up

Yes, it is time for another "Empties", but this time will be different. I will put my thoughts on paper. It will also be a bit of a product review. So, here we go.

1. Gyna Guard Ultimate Intimate Wash (Ideal pH4.5, Soap & Scent free). This is a monthly staple, so this will always be a part of my empties. I have considered trying a different wash (this one is quite expensive and there are cheaper products available), but this one works and while I can still afford it I will use it. It's a great product without any issues and does the job just fine. Ladies, grab yourself a bottle next time you are at Clicks or Dischem.

2. Mitchem Advanced Gel (in Pure Fresh scent) This is also a monthly staple and again, if it works why change it. I have tried out a few in my life and nothing seems to hold fast like this product. A definite repurchase. 

3. Tampax (Super) I really hate this product. I have been using Lilets forever. I could not find the size I wanted and resorted to trying something else. I did not even finish this box. I just chucked it. It does not expand very well and it comes apart (this is the best I can explain it). There is nothing wrong with the absorption, but everything else is horrible, even the individual packaging. I will never buy this again.

4. The Body Shop Passion Fruit Shower Gel (Soap free cleanser) What can I say. I actually don't have to say anything when it comes to The Body Shop products. It is no secret that I absolutely love their products and it is soap free so it is easy on the skin. Repurchase every single time.

5. Tresemmé Dry Shampoo (Translucent) I was not that impressed with this product. It does not hold that long. I know it is only a "quick" solution when a crisis arises and a hair wash is out of the question. It made my hair look dull and lifeless and did not give the impression of a "hair wash". Money wise the bottle size was just fine. I did use it quite a few weeks. But, my verdict: I'm going back to Batiste.

6. Avon Glimmerstick Eyeliner (Blackest Black) LOVE this eyeliner. It is waterproof, stays the whole day and gentle on the eyes. I am already using the new one a lot.

7. Sorbet Hydrating Face Mask Clarifying and Moisturising (with Ceramide, Hyaluronic acid and With hazel) This is the first mask I bought and used from Sorbet and I am highly impressed. Your skin feels refreshed and so soft. I have heard Allison Anderson talk about Hyaluronic Acid a lot. It really does wonders for the skin. I have repurchased this. I am trying out a different face mask. It is not expensive and feels almost like a salon facial. But for a quick fix if money is tight-try it out!

8. Indola Innova Thermal Protector Setting Spray. This is a salon product. I love the smell of this product, but more than that I find sometimes these products tend to feel like hair spray on your hair. This does not feel like that. It makes your hair soft and shiny and it smells divine! I am struggling to find this a bit, so as soon as I see it again I will add one to my cart.

9. Avon Ideal Flawless BB Cream (Nude) I could not find this for a while and it really upset me. In summer I want something light with a tint to hide some light blemishes and this works. It does not "suffocate" the skin and just gives it the tint it needs without it looking cake-y. It blends well and is super moisturising. This also does not stand back for any heat and sits tight on your face for up to 8 hours. When Summer comes I will be armed with a few bottles of this BB Cream.

10. LUSH Bath Products At last I have finished my LUSH that was a gift from the UK. I did a review on these specific products. You can go and read it H E R E

11. Beauty Factory Country Garden Sweet Pea Body Soufflé Absolutely amazing. That was my first impression. As much as I love the body butters from The Body Shop I actually prefer this one. It is light on the skin, applies easy and it smells delicious. And best is you can apply it everyday without it getting greasy or layered. I know us girls wanna smell really nice, don't we?! I have not seen this anywhere except at The Body Factory in Woodlands, so if you cross it somewhere, let me know.
