March Empties

28 comments
Hey Lovelies,
So March is nearly over and it's time for another Empties post!
Empties
I've used up a reasonable amount of products this month which I'm quite pleased about.
I'll start with 2 body lotions, one I am very happy to have finished and another which I am gutted to have I've used up! 
 Empties
 Bath and Body Works Japanese Sherry Blossom Body Lotion
 I got this product for Christmas and I absolutely love it. It smells amazing, absorbs quickly into the skin quickly and is also very moisturising. I haven't got anything bad to say about the Bath and Body Works Japanese Sherry Blossom Body Lotion other than the fact that it's not available in the UK. (My mum got me this from Dubai where they do have a Bath and Body Works store.)
Would Repurchase?  Yes, if only it was available in the UK!
Marc Jacobs Oh Lola! Sheer Body Lotion
This came in a gift set with the Marc Jacobs Oh Lola perfume. I only used this up rather than let it to to waste, but I don't really like body lotions that come as part of perfume gift sets as I find they are very highly fragranced but not very moisturising at all.  
Would Repurchase?  No, but I would repurchase the Marc Jacobs Oh Lola! Perfume
Empties
Next up are the 2 haircare products that I used up in March
VO5 Give Me Moisture Conditioner (Dry Hair)
I'd say this is pretty much your average drugstore conditioner. It moisturised my hair and left it feeling soft. However I wouldn't go as far as saying that it transformed my hair or made it shimmering and shiny which the bottle claims it does. 
Would Repurchase?  Yes
John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Moisturising Shampoo
This shampoo is slightly more expensive for a drugstore shampoo which is why I was a little bit disappointed with it. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with this shampoo, I just didn't find there was anything amazing about it to justify the higher price tag.
 Would Repurchase?  Maybe, but not anytime soon
Empties
I used up 2 make up items in March, and as I've been trying to downsize my make up collection lately I'm quite pleased about this!
Benefit Boing Concealer
Benefit market this as an "industrial strength' concealer which I somewhat disagree with as it is not as good as covering up blemishes as MAC's Studio Finish concealer. I used Benefit Boing as an under eye concealer which worked well for me there but it wasn't strong enough to cover up any spots of discolouration on my skin. If you are looking to use this as an under eye concealer though make sure you use an eye cream first as Benefit Boing can be a little bit drying on the delicate under eye area,
Would Repurchase?  No
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
This is one of my all time favourite foundations. It's a full coverage foundation that gives a matt finish and it lasts all day which is the best thing about it, Whenever I put this on, I do not need to retouch my make up throughout the day and it gives a really flawless finish. I especially like this foundation during warmer months when make up can slide off your face. Once you have Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation on, it will not budge!
Would Repurchase?  100% Yes
Empties
 I somehow managed to finish up 2 different cleansers and an eye make up remover in month. All of these 3 products are brilliant and I'd recommend them all.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O
This is one of the best make up removers I've tried in a while, and it's finally available in the UK! Bioderna is really gentle on the skin and is great at removing make up. I've done a whole review on it which you can read by clicking here.
Would Repurchase? Yes, another bottle is on its way to me as we speak.
Superdrug Tea Tree Cleanser and Toner
Superdrug have really amazed me with their skincare lately. All Superdrug own label skincare products I have tried are brilliant, and their Tea Tree Cleanser and Toner is no exception. I was using this every morning to cleanse and tone my skin in one quick and easy step and it worked really well. This product is not suitable for the eye area but other than that I think it's great!
Would Repurchase? Yes
Lancome Bi-Facil Instant Cleanser
This is only a small sample size I got from the Lancome counter but I decided to include it in my March Empties post because I think it's a brilliant product! The Lancome Bi-Facil Instant Cleanser one of those cleansers that has 2 parts and you need to shake it before you use it. It's excellent for removing make up, and also non-greasy and gentle at the same time. If you are looking for a high end cleanser I'd really recommend this one!
Would Repurchase? This was a sample but I would purchase a full size bottle.
Empties
The last products of my March Empties are just going to be a few more randoms I've used up
Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub
Usually I love Soap and Glory scrubs, but I found this one too thick and I really didn't like the scent of it. It smells sickly sweet. The Breakfast Scrub is a good exfoliator, and if you don't mind the smell I think would work great, but this is my least favourite Soap and Glory Scrub.
Would Repurchase? No
St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Lotion
This is a really good and inexpensive fake tan that gives a nice natural colour. I've done a separate review on this product which you can read by clicking here.
Would Repurchase? Yes
Sanex Dermo Extra Control Anti Perspirant Deoderant
This is one of them 48 hour deoderants. I don't really know why they do 48-hour deoderant. Surely everyone showers and changes their clothers within 24 hours. Still this is the best deorderant I've used, it effective and doesn't leave white mark on your clothes. I've tried others in the range as well but the Dermo Extra Control Anti Perspirant is my favourite!
Would Repurchase? Yes
Well, that's it for my March Empties. What have you used up this month?
Thank you for reading.

  12. This beauty products are great, thanks for sharing though we should regulate from using some beauty product because some of it contains toxic chemicals like the one in the news that a certain whitening cream contains mercury that is very hazardous to our body. They said that mercury can whitens fast but its to dangerous to the health. helse shop
