January Empties | Products I've used up

I kind of forgot about my empties bag in my cupboard that is rapidly filling up. I want to try new everything's this year including new products. So, it is that time. Lets see what is in my empties bag and what I honestly thought about it.

Woolworths Cleanse Make-up remover wipes with Vitamin E{extra large} What I liked about this wipes is that it is extra large. What I did not like is the fact that the last few felt dryer and that it kind of felt hard on my skin -the wipe itself. It did however did a pretty good job in removing my make-up. Thumbs up for that.I purchased another packet. We will see with this one.

TLC Deep Cleanse make-up remover wipes {with chamomile extract} If it comes to value for money these are a great find. It is 60 wipes for a reasonable price. They did a good job removing make-up and I have been a fan for a while now. However, again the last few wipes I had to wet with a little water and that did the job. A possible re-purchase for me.

Woolworths Nourishing Facial Cleansing Wipes {Almond Oil&Pro-Vit B5} I love these wipes. They are soft on the skin, really nourishes and removes make-up like a dream even waterproof mascara (although I switched to normal mascara)! Definite re-purchase for me.

The Body Shop Mango Shower Gel Need I say more? We all know I love these shower gels and I re-purchase them all.the.time. This far the Mango one is still my favourite, but I am trying new ones! 

Giorgio Armani Si Perfume I actually can not afford this...I got it from my sister. It is a light fresh smell and makes me think of wild flowers with a huge hint of sweetness. It is 100ml and after a while I got a bit bored with the smell and just wanted to finish it. Obviously not a re-purchase, but I won't mind a small bottle as a present.

Rejuvenate by Cotton On Body Candle to go {Melon//Mint//Basil} I enjoyed this little one for a while but the melon is overwhelming and it smells a little bit too much like bubblegum. I tried it, enjoyed it, but won't re-purchase it soon. 

The Body Shop Fijan Water Lotus Eau de Toilette Loved this mix of spicy and flower smell, but it did not last long after application. Maybe it is just on my skin. I was a bit disappointed, would have liked if it lingered longer. I think for a after-shower-before-I-go-to-bed smell it is wonderful. Won't re-purchase it soon.

Nivea Cocoa Butter Body Cream {with Hydra iQ} Lovely body butter and really very moisturizing. I would suggest it for the winter when your skin tends to be more dry, but overall I was really satisfied with this one.  It is thick, easy application and lasted quite some time due to not using a lot at a time.

Nutri Women Skin Perfect Milky Cleanser {with Aloe, Phytic Acid, Rosemary & Cucumber Extract} I bought this as I forgot to buy my normal cleanser at the salon and they were closed for the December holidays. This is a really milky cleanser and very soft on the skin. It did burn my skin the first few washes, very lightly, but after that it was lovely. It also removed excess make-up quite well. I think the only thing that really bugged me is that it lasted so damn long! Like 9 months long. You only use 1 squirt and it does the job. If I am in a rut I will purchase this again.

Palmolive Aroma Therapy Sensual Shower Gel {with Moroccan Rose essential oil & Ginseng extract} I originally bought this to put it in the soap dispenser in the bathroom, but I ran out of shower gel and I decided to use this. It lasted me quite some time and it felt nice on the skin. It is not so harsh and the very little oil feel to it is gentle on the skin. 

Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair I was not impressed by this heat protect spray. It felt like I had hair spray on my hair and it tend to make my hair feel dry and stiff. I will not re-purchase this.

Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume Loved this dry shampoo It really gives a lot of volume. It made my hair look instantly freshly washed. I got some compliments saying my hair look so nice and clean. Super impressed. The only thing is I always had to wash my hair the day after I used it. But I tend to use dry shampoo the day before I have to wash my hair. FIY I only wash my hair once a week. I bought another one in the range, but this is on my re-purchase list.

Avon Skin So Soft Moisturising Shave Gel I liked this a lot. It is thick and creamy and you have to use only a little bit. My legs felt soft and smooth as the bottle says. I do not use shower gel as a rule, but if I should decide to use it I will add this to my list.

The Body Shop Lip Butter {Mango} This is sooo moisturising and feels great on the lips. It lasted almost forever. The only reason why I will not buy it again is because you need to apply it with your finger. Please bring it out in a twisty tube! That would be great!

Annique Eau de parfume in Tenacity This was a tester I got with my last purchase. I loved this spicy lightly sweet smell. It makes me think of summer beach nights. It lasted some time after application and I would purchase this. 

Indola Innova Repair Conditioner Don't have much to say except that this works wonderful with my hair and I don't have an issue with split ends. It lasts quite some time as you don't have to use a whole lot at a time and it smells delicious! Like fruit.  I wanted to re-purchase this but could not find any stock so opted for a different one in the same range. 

Indola Innova Glamorous Oil Shampoo This is a great shampoo when you live in an area where your hair gets very static. It is very good on colored hair as well.  I enjoyed using this a lot. It made my hair less dry and really soft without making it super oily. I moved closer to the beach so now this almost too moisturising. But, I would recommend it for sure.

LUSH Dream Cream First of all this was a tester, second I did not like the smell, but it did the job. It is a really nice cream. It did was it is supposed to do, moisturise. Unfortunately also this does not fit into my budget of creams. 

LUSH Enchanted Eye Cream This was also a tester. Really liked this cream as it did wonders for dark circles under my eyes. It is quite pricey and maybe when I am big and earn a lot of money I will invest in a bottle of this. Then again, it also smelled funny. But the smell did not last and my skin absorbed it almost immediately.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream Loved this little miracle worker. It helped the dryness under my eyes as well as with the dark circles. I could see the difference within a few days after I started using it. This also lasted extremely long ans I did not had to use loads of it. The only reason why I did not re-purchase this is because I am trying out different one's to see what works best for me. You can form an opinion if you have only tried one. Who knows, it might be a winner.

Avon Foot Works Glycerine and Cocoa Butter{with massager} Loved the smell and feel of this cream. I have extremely dry feet feet and I applied this in the evening before I went to bed and it helped a lot. The messager was an irritation to me. I hated the fact that the cream get stuck between the little dots. I tried it a few times, but it just did not work for me. Just give me the cream without the fancy. I won't buy it again though only for that fact.

Avon Foot Works Heel Softening Cream Just read the review above. I feel the same way about this cream. It helped a lot with softening my heel and it lasted the whole day. Definitely would recommend this one. I am also a huge Avon fan. I should become an ambassador. 

Wowzer! This turned out to be a long post, but I hope you found it helpful. Till the next bag of empties!
