February Empties

15 comments
Hello Lovelies,
I hope you are all well and having a nice weekend.
It's the beginning of March now (can you believe how fast this year is flying by??), so I thought I'd share with you all the products I used up during the month of February.
 
I have decided to do my monthlies slightly different though. I am not going to include products that were in any of my previous Empties posts anymore as I am getting a bit worried about these posts becoming too repetitive. 
As you can see, I have once again used up quite a lot of stuff!
Let's start with haircare
TRESemme Thermal Recovery Intensive Repair and Rehydration Treatment
This is an intensive conditioner I was using once a week but I don't feel like it really did anything special for my hair. I would expect my hair to feel amazing after using a product like this but it felt no different than when I use a normal conditioner. I am glad I have used this up now.
Would Repurchase?
No
John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Moisturising Conditioner
Another product I was rather disappointed with. I really like the shampoo in this range but I didn't think the conditioner was creamy or thick enough. It did however leave my hair feeling nicely conditioned but as this is slightly more expensive than your regular drugstore shampoos and conditioner I was sort of expecting a little bit more from it.
Would Repurchase?
No
Lush H'suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment
This is one of those treatments you apply to your hair when it's still dry, leave it on for 20 minutes then rinse and shampoo as usual.
I think this product works really well and my hair always felt softer and more manageable after using it. However I really don't like the smell of this!  This stuff stinks, simple as that. And it's not the kind of smell that goes away after you shampoo your hair. No, it lingers in your hair till the next time you wash it.
Would Repurchase?
No, but only because I really don't like the smell.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Hair Serum
I've been using this for years. I apply it to my hair when it's soaking wet. This serum is really thick and it does a great job at smoothing out my dry, thick hair and making it less frizzy!
Would Repurchase?
Yes
Garnier Simply Essentials 2 in 1 Make Up Remover
 This is a make up remover that consisted of a blue liquid and a clear liquid that you shake up before using. It does a really good job at removing eye make up whilst being gentle on the eyes. It's the best drugstore eye make remover I have tried and I always have a bottle of these on the go.
Would Repurchase?
Yes
Cutex Strengthenig Nail Polish Remover
This is alright at removing nail polish but I prefer my Bourjois Magic Nail Polish remover (click here for review) which is a lot quicker and easier to use than the Cutex product.
Would Repurchase?
No
 Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash
This facial wash smells nice, didn't break me out and left my skin feeling soft. As it's quite gentle I wouldn't rely on this to remove my make up.
Would Repurchase?
Yes
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Daily Scrub 
This is a bit like an exfoliating cream cleanser. As it's so creamy it's not too abrasive on the skin which I liked. It didn't break me out and my skin always felt soft after using it.
Would Repurchase?
Yes
I've only got 2 make up empties to share with you this month, and they are both concealers
Maybelline Dream LUMI Touch Highlighting Concealer
This product didn't do a very good job at concealing my under eye circles but I used it as a highlighter instead which worked really well. However I was amazed at how fast I used this up. Even though the pen looks quite long, you do not get a lot of product with this. Over half of the pen is the dispenser so if you are thinking of getting this do bear that in mind. Something like the YSL Touche Eclat is more expensive but will also definitely last you a whole while longer!
Would Repurchase?
Yes
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
I really like this concealer. It's thick and creamy and does a great job at covering under eye circles and blemishes. It's also very inexpensive so if you haven't already tried this I highly recommend checking it out!
Would Repurchase?
Yes
Click here if you'd like to see which Soap and Glory products I don't rate.
These 2 products however are a completely different story!
Soap and Glory Body Milk
This is a brilliant moisturiser that absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves it feeling nice and soft. For a body milk the consistency of it is quite thick which I like. It's got a pleasant soft oatmeal scent.
Would Repurchase?
Yes
Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter 
This is one of Soap and Glory's best selling products and it's easy to see why. It smells amazing, absorbs quickly into the skin and leaving it soft and moisturised. 
Would Repurchase?
Yes

  5. Great set of empties! I have to admit I love John Fredia Brilliant Brunette but thinking about it I agree, the conditioner never really leaves the hair super soft does it?!

    I've started a new feature on my blog today called "My Top Five..." where I'm picking my five favourite nail polishes in each colour over the next couple of weeks! I'm starting with blue...
