November & December EmptiesMonday, January 06, 2014
It has been a while since I did an empties post so I thought I would combine my November and December empties into one. I didn't get through as much as usual in those two months so hopefully this post will not be too long, but I can tell you now I used up a lot of products that I have been loving, so be prepared for what may read as a favourites post :)
First up are the hair products. I find John Frieda products to be a little hit and miss, however I have found the Everlasting Blonde Range (£5.99) to be very pleasant. It keeps my hair looking bright and clean, whilst preserving my highlights. You can usually pick them both up for £8 which I would happily pay. Would I buy these again? Most definitely
Next up is the Osmo Silverising Conditioner (£7.50). I was on the hunt for a new purple shampoo and conditioner and came across the Osmo range so thought I would give them a go. The conditioner is very nourishing and leaves my hair looking shiny and bright, unfortunately I am not as big a fan of the shampoo. Would I buy this again? Quite possibly
Lastly is a favourite of mine, Batiste Dry Shampoo in Cherry* (£2.99). This is the first time I have tried this scent and oh my it is amazing! I typically pick up the Tropical scent but having tried Cherry I will definitely be picking it up again! As I have mentioned in past empties posts, I love Batiste and have yet to find a better dry shampoo. Would I buy this again? Definitely
My boyfriend stayed in a hotel that had Bliss goodies in the bathroom so he bought some home for me, this meant I got to try out the Bliss Body Lotion (£20.50 full size). I am sad to see it empty as I absolutely loved this lotion, its a shame it's so expensive! It sinks into your skin instantly and is very moisturising, it also has a lovely fresh scent that lingers on your skin. Would I buy this again? If it was on offer yes
I received a sample of the Angelica Hyrdration Cream (£30.00 full size) in a Glossy Box and was very excited to try it. As you can tell from the name, this is a hydrating cream that moisturises and revitalizes the skin. I used this every morning and after continuous use I could really see an improvement in my skin, it was much more smooth, radiant and hydrated. Would I buy this again? Yes, definitely
I purchased The Body Shop Body Butter in Blueberry on a bit of a whim, they had 50% off online and although I knew I loved their body butters, I could either love the scent or hate it. Thankfully I loved the smell and like all their body butters it is so very soft and moisturising. Unfortunately I can no longer find it online, so I am not sure if The Body Shop have stopped selling this particular one but thy have plenty of other scents available here. Would I buy this again? Yes!
Yet another favourite is the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19). If you have not tried this yet, where have you been?! I thoroughly recommend that you go out and purchase this now as it is one of the best drug store concealers out there. As the name would suggest it lasts all day and does a great job at covering imperfections. Would I buy this again? Always!
Lastly, the Sure Maximum Protection Deodorant (£5.30) is my favourite deodorant of all time, which I posted a full review on here. It does everything you want in a deodorant and lasts all day long. I am now using the same deodorant, but in 'Sensitive Dry', and it is not my favourite scent so I will definitely be picking up 'Everyday Fresh' next time. Would I buy this again? Yes, yes, yes
So that's it for November and December! Let me know your thoughts on the products I have got through the past two months :)
