June Empties

If you're new at Empties (like I was until recently), it refers to the products that beauty bloggers finish. For some weird reason, it's fascinating to peek inside someone else's bathroom and see what products they've been using. Here are the ones I finished in June.

Schwarzkopf Extra Care Super Styling Lacquer Extreme Hold
This is a staple in my bathroom, a product I've been using for years. My favourite ever hairspray.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Tropical
You probably all know I'm a massive fan of dry shampoo, and this is my second favourite, after Toni & Guy Dry Shampoo. This works well and has a lovely, refreshing scent.

St Ives Moisturizing Olive Scrub
This scrub was so-so on my face, not really up to the standard I've set for a face scrub, so I used practically the whole thing as a body scrub. I really loved it as a body exfoliant, because it was very moisturising and left my skin feeling soft and gently exfoliated. It's just not the type of product I want to use on my face, though.

Yves Saint Laurent Paris Eau De Toilette
I'm so sad I've finished this, my favourite perfume ever. But luckily I can now start on the smaller version hubby bought me. WOO!

Head & Shoulders Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
This was a free sample I procured from somewhere. I have no idea if its any good at reducing dandruff 'cos I dont have it. But it was free and I used it. Not something I'll be buying in the future. Even the name 'Head & Shoulders' kind of freaks me out. Hehe.

Bellaboo All That Clean Skin Facial Wash
This came in a set of Bellaboo products I won some time ago. It's actually a cute little wash, clearly aimed at teenage girls. The scent was quite pleasant, and it did a satisfactory job on my face.

A'kin Rose & Geranium Cleanser & Toner in One
Quite a nice creamy cleanser. I'm not in love with it though, and probably won't repurchase. Quite a small size, so it may have come in a trial pack of A'kin products. I can't really remember where I got it from.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter
This smelled gorgeous and was so creamy to apply. Loved the consistency and the way it absorbed quite quickly and left my skin feeling luxurious. This was part of a pack given to employees as a Christmas gift about four years ago, right before I left work, so it has held up really well over time. It's been sitting in my bathroom for years, half-used (poor thing!); I'm really glad I rediscovered it. I may go and look at other Body Butter varieties from The Body Shop, because it's a great product.


  1. ooh the strawberry body butter seems lush, I want!
    I'm about to finish up a perfume, because I wear a different scent every day I've not used one up in ages! I'm excited haha and you've spurred me to use it all up asap

  2. Body Shop :D *droools* you made strawberry sound so exotic...
