Product Empties #1


I have been collecting up my empty product packages into a little basket for quite a while now, but I think I've got just about enough at this point to post a decent sized product empties for you all, with a mini review for each one. 

I hope you enjoy!

Neutrogena 2-in-1 Wash and Mask - £3.79

This Neutrogena 2-in-1 Wash and Mask has been a part of my facial cleansing routine for what must be 4-5 years now, it's one that I can honestly say I always go back to - and it works! I use it twice daily as a wash, and around once a week as a facial mask, if I gain any spots though, I will use it once a day for however long the spots last, normally no longer than 5 days depending on how stubborn it/they may be, which I think is amazing! I've already re-purchased this little gem.

Olay Satin Care Sensitive Shave Gel - £3.65

Although I have enjoyed using this Olay Satin Care Sensitive Shave Gel, as it makes your legs so so soft and smooth, I really don't feel that it's an essential that I really need. I do think that its cool though how when you press the button down located right at the top, it squirts out an almost aqua blue colour onto your hand, and as soon as it gets lathered onto your legs it transforms into this amazing soft white foam - well I think its cool anyway!

Dove Purely Pampering Cream Oil Body Wash - £2.40

Not gunna lie - I've already repurchased two more of these (couldn't find this exact one on the site), I'm not a fan of the original Dove scents at all, don't be fooled though if you're in the same boat, these smell so delicious you could gobble them up, don't though - that would be strange! This makes your skin feel so silky soft, The Purely Pampering Almond Cream with Hibiscus and also the Pampering Coconut Milk ones are very nice too, I definitely recommend :) 

Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Natural Bronze Body Lotion - £5.35

Hmm, the Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Natural Bronze Body Lotion..I don't really know how I feel about this one, although it makes your skin so soft as it doubles up as a - as the name suggests, a body lotion, and doesn't make you orange, I just feel that the scent puts me off, sometimes even after 2 showers I can still smell that biscuit-y smell just lingering on my skin, and I feel as though everyone around me can smell it too, its just not a great feeling, I still have another bottle to use up, but after that I think I'll try and find another to take its place. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Primer - £5.99

I bought the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer when they had a deal on in Boots, I feel like it hasn't lasted me long at all, seeing as on the bottle it says there should be 30ml in there, I mean, its not like I go crazy when applying, and my make-up just doesn't seem to stay in place when I use this product, it pretty much disappears on my forehead in-between my eyebrows and around my mouth, the one that I'm using now is much better - let me know if you'd like to find out more :)

Loreal Fibrology Thickening Shampoo - £3.99

This shampoo was great when I was my natural shade of brunette, but the other day I went to the hair dressers and got my hair turned a dark-ish blonde, and for some reason because my hairs obviously dryer now, this shampoo just doesn't have the same softening, silkening result as it used to, such a shame.

I hope you enjoyed reading though this empties post,
Have you tried any of these products?
If so what did you think?

Any comments would be most appreciated :)



  1. I use that shave gel! It definitely works well. But I'd love to get that matte primer! I love rimmel products.
    Unique Jewelry/Decor Giveaway!

    1. I definitely agree about the shaving gel, guess I just can't quite make my mind up on it! Don't get me wrong, I love rimmel too.. always have done, and I really wanted to love the matte primer :( It may work better on your skin type though, so yeah I'd say give it a shot :) xx

  2. I need to do this but keep chucking my empties away!! :')
    Definitely going to start keeping them now!

    1. Hahah, you have no idea how hard it was for me to not just chuck them into the bin!
