May Empties

My first ever Empties post! Here goes ......

Toni & Guy Refreshing Dry Shampoo
I love this stuff. It really works, and at 200mls you get more than most other dry shampoos. I really don't like advertising this product, though, because Toni & Guy Twitter PR are complete bastards. They goaded me into rating this product out of 10, then RTed my tweet without so much as a thank you or an explanation as to why they were requesting this of me. Bad PR.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Original
Yes I use a lot of dry shampoo. Batiste make very reliable dry shampoo and this size is perfect for short trips. I actually dont buy this size, though, I won this in a competition. I buy it in the larger size, and usually in Tropical. And no sign of any Twitter PR bastardry :)

Dove Gentle Exfoliating Beauty Cream Bar
That's a fancy name for soap. My favourite soap. I love the feeling of the scratchy bits on my skin, softly exfoliating while cleaning. It just feels great, refreshing and satisfying. I'm addicted to these 'beauty bars'!

Sebastian Hydre Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner
I won these in another competition, and was delighted to see they won the Judges Choice in the 2010 Australian Beauty Awards. I got really good results from these products and I'm sad I've finished them. However I won a range of hair products from this brand, so I can't wait to try out the others. I want to purchase the shampoo and conditioner because I was so happy with the results, but I've got a feeling they will be too expensive. Too scared to look it up!

Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Blackhead Clearing Scrub
I cannot sing the praises of this awesome scrub enough. It's my favourite scrub ever, and I've been through so many of them. It just feels so fabulous when I'm exfoliating with this, and afterwards my skin feels SO clean, deep down. I highly recommend you all try this scrub, if you haven't already.

Do you use any of these products?


  1. I agree with your critique of the Dove soap - it is like a slice of heaven on my skin! I've seen the Sebastian Hydre about the place, I might give up my Pantene addiction one day to try it! I'll definitely try the Garnier Scrub now that you have recommended it :) Thanks!

  2. Not a bad lot there, well done! I'm almost done with my dry shampoo so that will probably feature in my next empties=)

  3. Frangipani Lady - Dove soap is just to die for isn't it! And let me know what you think if you try the Garnier Scrub :)
    emmabovary - can't wait to read about your empties. It's strangely addictive!

  4. Love empties posts! I am such a sticky beak :)

    Really hate the idea of pushy PR companies....if your product is good enough people will write good stuff about it!

    I am a huge fan of body scrubs and after miss 2 put all of the pretty blue St Tropez one through her hair on the weekend I am on the lookout for a new one :)

  5. Tarsh - yeah, they were rude and ignored my tweets to them except the one they used! Oh no, re the blue St Tropez incident, that would have been messy!


Max and I love reading your comments! We will do our best to visit your blog and comment, too :)
