April Empties

It's that time of the month again! Empties! I am a bit earlier with this post - I'm not going to use anything else up before the end of the month.



This is what I've got through this month and here are my thoughts:

Dr Nick Lowe Cooling Menthol Face Scrub 75ml - this is my all time favourite scrub and as soon as I see I'm running low I pick up another (or wait until Boots are doing their £5 off vouchers).  The best facial scrub I've ever used.

Sisley Sisleya Global Anti-Age Cream 2 x 5ml - got one in my Latest in Beauty box and one in a swap - gorgeous cream - but couldn't justify spending £243 on a full size pot so wouldn't buy.

Clarins Relax Bath & Shower Concentrate 100ml - one of my favourite relaxing bath products, it so soothes aching muscles, would purchase.  This was a generous GWP size.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 30ml - this was from the Breast Cancer Gift Box in October.  One of my favourite face creams - I always come back to this one - light and refreshing on the skin and it works.

Avon Lagoon Liquid Soap 300ml -  a cheapie but love the scent.

RMK Cleansing Oil Sachet 3ml - love, love, love this oil.  will probably purchase at some point.  Scented with rose and mint - got three uses.

Chanel Hydramax+ Active Serum 5ml - nice to use and smelled good but probably not really suited to my skin type so wouldn't buy.

Neil George Intense Illuminating Conditioner 10ml sachet - loved this, will purchase at some point when I've used some hair products up.

Como Shambhala Invigorate Shower Gel 2 x 50ml - my new favourite, have already purchased full size and got a few in swaps.

Como Shambhala Invigorate Body Lotion 1 x 50ml - love this, got a few stocked up.

Balance Me Rose Otto Body Wash 125ml - love this delicious rose scented      Turkish delight wash. 

Pure Fiji Body Butter - mini pot - lovely rich cream rather than a butter, lightly scented with coconut - love it.

Erno Laszlo Velvet Night Cream sachet - got two uses from this.  Lovely rich cream (got a few stocked up in swaps).

Erno Laszlo Instant Eye Repair sachets x 2 - got approx 5 uses per sachet.  Lovely eye cream but retails at £85 eek.

Erno Laszlo Morning Beauty Rescue/Intensive Porcelain Veil/Refresh Moisture Infusion - sachets - all lovely to use (and got a few more in swaps).  Wouldn't purchase anything from the range as its too expensive - but nice to try out.

G Baldwin & Co Harmonising Bath Oil 25ml - free gift with purchase.  Lovely scent and is reasonably priced so will probably purchase at some point.

Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturiser 15ml - this was in my free Cult Beauty Gift - I am so in love with this moisturiser!  I definitely want to get this when I've used up the samples/trial sizes etc. from beauty boxes and other purchases.

Elemis Tranquil Touch Body Polish 50ml - lovely body scrub would consider re-purchasing.

Evolve Protein Build Conditioner - Dry/Damaged Hair 7ml sachet - received this in my April Amarya box - nice product, would perhaps purchase.

Age Definance Cleansing Wipes - sometimes only a wipe will do.  Try to use these now and again rather than everyday.  2 packs for £1 in Poundland.  Non-sting which is great.

Bamford Geranium Bath Oil 30ml x 2 - My favourite bath oil, I will eventually get round to buying this but still got a lot from swaps.

Molton Brown Vitalising AB&C Bath and Shower Gel 100ml - love the scent and the luxury of Molton Brown products.  

Garnier Body Intensive 7 days Soothing Lotion 250ml - Calming Honey - love this budget body lotion it really does work.  Great light scent too.  I'd definitely re-purchase.

Spiezia Facial Cleanser 10ml - one of the best balm type cleansers.  Quite a herbal scent so takes a bit of getting used to but removes every last trace of waterproof mascara and eyeliner.

Radox Hand Wash 300ml - chamomile and jojoba oil - delicately scented would re-purchase.

No7 Wipes - got these in the Boots £5 off voucher deal - wouldn't re-purchase as at £7 expensive and I didn't think they worked as well as the cheaper ones.

Garnier Fresh Essentials Toner 200ml - normal/combination skin.  I got this half price at £1.50.  Good budget toner. Would re-purchase.

Clarins Extra Firming Body Cream 30ml - got this in a swap.  Nice enough cream (though prefer the lotion in this range).  Wouldn't purchase as I think there are nicer body creams out there.

What have you been using up this month?
