February Empties

Hey guys!  I usually do my monthly empties as a video on YouTube but I thought I'd change things up this month and turn it into a blog post, you likey?

It's been a pretty good month for getting through stuff this time, I think the 100 day spending challenge has forced me to try and use products up so I have a chance of re-purchasing them.  Problem with that is I have so many backups for each thing, that doesn't really happen - unless it's shampoo and conditioner for some reason.

So, in February, I ran out of:

  • Herbal Essences Ignite my Colour conditioner: Which I have re-purchased (a bigger bottle!).  I really love the scent of this and how lovely and soft it makes my hair feel - great if you wash your hair nearly every day like me :)
  • Chanel Ecriture liquid eyeliner - Yep, replaced this bad boy too!  That one has lasted me the best part of a year and I didn't have a suitable replacement in stock ;)
  • Wei white lotus eye cream - Gutted this is finished... best eye cream I'd tried, even wrote a whole blog post on this tiny sample, but at £60 for a replacement... I just couldn't do it.
  • Superdrug anti ageing hand cream - now this bad boy I bought for no less than 99p in Superdrug (it was on offer) and I've loved it! I kept it on my desk at work, using it around 3-4 times a day and it managed to last me around.... 3-4 months, I really got my value for money out of it :)  Would I repurchase? Yes - but I have far too many other hand creams to go through first :)
  • L'Occitane Shampoo and Conditioner - I had these in my secret santa swap with Laurie and only just got around to using them the other day - probably wouldn't purchase full size ones of these because 1. there wasn't enough of a sample for my hair so I had to add other shampoo and conditioner to it, and 2. my hair didn't feel especially amazing afterwards.
  • Superdrug Naturally Radiant hot cloth cleanser: Yes I'm gutted this is finished!  But, I have lots more to use up before I replace it.  I still have a little of my Liz Earle C&P left, and the Superdrug Vitamin E cleanser, and one from my Bristol blogger meetup - so will replace, but not yet :)
  • Clairol Colourseal gloss (for dark hair) - now this I fookin' loved! I always dye my hair with Nice n Easy, and they have one of these inside it, it's what I look forward to most about dying my hair! I know you can buy them individually for 99p, I just tend to forget that :)  But, I can say, the 2-3 days that I used this for my hair felt amazing, it had a beautiful soft sheen to it, a nice weight to it but it was still beautifully soft.  It makes for a great little treatment :)
So there you have it, my February Empties! I'm amazed how many I got through in such a short month, lets hope I can keep the momentum up for next month :)

One thing I was trying to finish as I know there's not much left is my Revlon Skin matching foundation, I was using it every day and I think it was responsible for breaking me out... so I've stopped using it :(  I will try it again once my skin has calmed down, but its been a couple of weeks and still not recovered :/

  1. Fab review and I find it interesting to find what people renew and what they don't xx

  2. Shame that samples weren't good, to be honest I thought the same with the ones I used too. I love the hot cloth cleanser its amazeballs xxx

    1. I'm so glad you like the cleanser, it's soooo good!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message :)
