Empties #21

Lately I have just been trying to use stuff up. I wouldn't say I have a huge collection of beauty products but I do have more than I actually need. Now I got an idea to reduce my collection. I have a lot of products that I just save because I like them so much or they were expensive and I don't want to use them up. In this post, you will see a lot of shower gels. For me, it takes a long time to use the whole bottle of shower gel, so usually, I just use them instead of hand soap. I have also been trying to use up all my oils and hand creams that are not my favorite and because of that I just forget about them.

This had such an amazing scent, like those Haribo soft candies that come in yellow and pink bears. It also lasted a long time, much longer than I presumed it would. It's a very light foam that doesn't do much, so in the end I used it up on my legs when my skin wasn't so dry. I loved the scent but I wouldn't repurchase, my skin needs a lot more nourishment.

I absolutely loved this one, my favourite hand cream ever, I need to repurchase it.

Balea Pflegecreme mit Duft von Kirsche und Kokoscreme
Balea often has limited edition of these creams and they are so cute. But I don't like the texture, it's too oily or something and it needs a long time to sink. Again, I used it on my legs just to use it up. The scent was very nice though.

Essence Lash Princess Waterproof
I used this one a couple of months back but I remember that I really liked it. I have a review here, you can also see how it looks on my lashes. It's a great deal, you get an amazing mascara for a really low price, I would definitely repurchase if I didn't have a lot of mascaras waiting to be tested.

Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara Waterproof
Again, one of my favourites. It's similar to Lash Princess but I think I still like this one better. Or I did like it. When I wore it, I always got some kind of infection on my eyes. I'm 99% sure this mascara was causing it because I don't have these problems anymore now that I completely stopped using it. When I wore it I often noticed that I got sensitive eyes and sometimes a part of my lashline hurt, like conjunctivitis but it wasn't that, you couldn't really see anything but it hurt. That's why I didn't repurchase it.

Bourjois Twist up the Volume Mascara
This one replaced my beloved I Love Extreme mascara. The wand is smaller and easier to work with. I love the formula, you can see more in my review.

The Body Shop Ginger Body Yogurt
These are so good, I love them. They are not the most nourishing but the texture is so smooth and light. And the scent of this was very nice, a bit spicy.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter
This one has such a strong medicine scent but I loved it. I had this little pot for about half a year because I didn't want to use it up. The texture is thicker and enough nourishing.

Annemarie Börlind Hyaluron Augenpads
Also, one product that I was saving but then I decided to use it up. These are masks for under the eyes and they worked well. They felt amazing on the skin.

Clay Ritual Clay Facial Mask Grey
It seems that I always have one of these in my posts, if it's not in my New In post, it's in my Empties. I just love these. My brother also likes using these, I don't finish them so quickly alone.

Melvita Indigo Oil
This was okay but I wouldn't repurchase. I used it mostly on my hair and yes, it was nice but nothing special. I did like the bottle though, it's heavy and super nice looking.

Annemarie Börlind LL Regeneration Blossom Dew Gel
I had this product in my 2019 favourites that you can read here.

Sun Dance Aloe Vera Gel
This is cheap and effective. I use it a lot, after laying on the sun, after shaving... I just can't find it DM stores anymore. I know they probably don't have them now in winter but I also searched last summer and I couldn't find it.

Le Petit Marseillais Vanilla Milk Extra Gentle Shower Cream
This smells like that proper homemade vanilla pudding. It has a creamy texture, I loved it.

The Body Shop Warm Vanilla Shower Gel
A lot of people loved this vanilla collection from TBS but not me. It was okay but I expected a different scent, something in the lines of the previous Le Petit Marseillais shower cream. I have a review of the whole Warm Vanilla collection here.

Avon Senses Chi Green Tea and Verbena Shower Gel
This was a nice change in my collection. I normally use more sweet and fruity scents but this one was fresher but it wasn't a basic scent. I enjoyed using it.

Oriflame Wild Blueberry Shower Cream
This one I used as a hand soap because we were out of it. It was nice but it's more of a winter-kind-of-scent.

Avon Aquavibe Love Now
I would describe this as a more teenage scent but I liked it a lot. Top notes are orange, pear and peach, middle are strawberry, raspberry and brown sugar. The base notes are amber and musk. This is my kind of fragrance for summer, it's very fruity and fun, now I want the whole bottle, it's already on my WL.

Thank you for reading!
