Empties #7

Monday, July 28, 2014

Hello dear readers :)
Again I've accumulated a bunch of beauty trash & I'm ready to share my thoughts with you ! Let me tell you that my mom is annoyed with me keeping that trash in my room - she just doesn't understand ! :D, so I have to keep telling her to not throw anything away, but I'm being a good blogger and I succeded to write another empties post. This time I included some samples too, because I want to throw them away :)
Here are my empty products:


Garnier Fructis Citrus Mint Fresh shampoo - I love this shampoo, it smells so fresh & citrusy + it does a great job with clearing all the "dirt" from my hair. I always go back to this one. They've somehow changed it a bit and the new one has some vitamins in it.
Repurchase: yes, already have (the new version)

Garnier Fructis Oily roots, Dry ends shampoo - I purchased this shampoo just because I couldn't find the one above. I used this shampoo back in elementary school and I still don't like it. It really does a good job with oily hair but i don't like the smell and texture.
Repurchase: nope (but mom bought me this one again, because she thought I like it :| )

Swiss O'par Frottee dry shampoo - I liked this dry shampoo because it smells fresh & I don't have problems with that white cast because I'm blonde (so yes it's quite white). However I found my new love: Batiste dry shampoo !
Repurchase: nope

Schwarzkopf Taft Power Hair Spray - This is my forever repurchased product. It has a great hold & it just works. Also I usually buy this on sale. For the girls who don't like the extra power & a bit of "hard to brush" hair, I wouldn't recommend this. However I usually spray this on and then quickly brush through so it looks nice & neat.
Repurchase: already have

Nivea Angel Star shower cream - I got this shower gel for free when I bought another Nivea shower gel, so I didn't think I'd like this one, however I really liked the scent - it smells like raspberries, but milky. I love Nivea shower gels because they're always so thick, milky and foamy.
Repurchase: maybe (have another one to use up as well)

I love...Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower smoothie/peeling - I really loved this body scrub. I love mango & papaya scents in every shower gel so this was perfect for me. I only wish it was cheaper :P It is a perfect scrub because the beads are not too small & not too big and you feel it working on your body.
Repurchase: yes (some time in the future)

I love...Mango & Papaya bubble bath & shower cream (100 ml version) - Again, love the smell ! However I think the body scrub has a stronger scent, don't know why. I enjoyed it, it foamed nicely and the smell is great but I didn't think it was anything special for that price.
Repurchase: nope (howevr I still have a big version)

Lush Dream Cream hand & body lotion (small version) - This is my holy grail until I find something better. I've talked about it already here, so have a look. It is just he only product that helps with my super dry skin on my legs. All in all, I just love this product :)
Repurchase: yes, ofcourse (after I finish all my body lotions)

Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Cream (sample size) - This foot cream is thick and kind of oily (it is clear yellow) and the smell is just ahh-mazingly coconuty. I've tried some foot creams before and none of them smelled so good + they were different consistency. This one is nice, but I don't think it moisturized my feet like a lot.
Repurchase: not sure

Afrodita Cosmetics Clean Phase Cleansing gel - I already talked a bit about this product here, however I have to say I really enjoyed it. I used it up quite quickly, because I used a bit more on me than usual - I just love washing my face :P. It really is a nice cleansing gel, it doesn't irritate your skin & it cleanses nicely. I also love the smell & color of the packaging, however the packaging always leaked a bit.
Repurchase: maybe (I really want to try some other cleansing gels too !)

Nivea Pure Effect Stay Clear Toner - I've talked about this toner here. I don't know why I didn't like it before but it is a really nice toner ! Also I liked the smell :)
Repurchase: maybe (I want to try some other ones too)

Essence PureSkin Purifying Nose Strips - These smelled awful + they got stuck a bit on my skin after peeling them off. I got mistaken and bought them thinking I used them before, but I was wrong.
Repurchase: no !

Schaebens Peel-off mask - oh my this smells so good - tropical. It is kind weird because it's a blue masque & it has shimmer in it. However I love it & it does it's job.
Repurchase: always

Duchesse Cosmetic Pads Sanddorn-Extrakt (super soft) - These were bought by my mom & she bought the wrong ones. These are thicker than the ones i usually use, however if you like that these would be perfect for you.
Repurchase: maybe

Afrodita Cosmetics Make it perfect ! Refreshing mask - I usually don't use masks that you actually just wash off, however this one was really refreshing, not greasy and all in all: it was nice.
Repurchase: maybe

Konad NailDressor Metal Nail Stickers - You've seen me wearing these here. I like the concept of metal stickers, however these didn't last that long on my nails.
Repurchase: already have, but I don't think I'll buy another pair

L'oreal Matt Morphose souffle foundation - I love this "foundation", especially in the summer because it was kind of a bit darker than my skin tone. It is mattifying and it just slides easily on your face, however I don't think it is that long lasting. They have repackaged this into Mat' Magique I think.
Repurchase: maybe the new version (I still have another one to finish up)

Essence Kiss Care Love lip balm 04 Caribbean Sunrise - I couldn't wait to finish that thing. I hated the shiny effect on my lips - I only bought it because it was peachy/orangey. It does moisturize your lips and gives them a bit of color, it just wasn't for me.
Repurchase: nope

Essence Studio Nails nail & culticle butter stick - I really liked this product, especially the smell ! It was great on the go, I just kind of "painted" my culticles with it and rubbed it in and it worked fine, however there was not a lot of product in this. Also it is discontinued.
Repurchase: yes, if it was still available (but I still have another one to finish up :3)

Blistex Classic Lip Protector - I did not like this lip balm. I love one of their lip balms, but this one was a no-no. It didn't moisturize my lips enough + the smell was just whatever.
Repurchase: nope

Oriflame Kiss Proof Lips liquid lipstick - I liked this lipstick because it lasted on my lips for a long time, however it was feeling drying. It just got spoiled + it's old so I need to throw it away
Repurchase: nope + they don't sell these anymore

Rexona Happy Anti-Perspirant - I liked the smell of this one & Rexona deodorants have become my favorite, especially in the summer because they really do work.
Repurchase: maybe

Rexona Clear Diamond Crystal Anti-Perspirant - I really liked this deodorant & it did a great job. Also I liked the smell. The only problem I have with Rexona spray deodorants is that they are so strong when you spray them - I almost choke on them.
Repurchase: already have

Rexona Clear Aqua Crystal Anti-Perspirant Deo Roll-on - it was a nice, fresh deodorant. I'm just not sure about the roll-on versions.
Repurchase: maybe

Melvita Pulpe de rose Plumping Radiance Serum & Plumping Radiance Cream - These smell like roses, so I hated them. The serum was a really nice consistency, the cream was just thicker than that but the smell is the same.
Purchase: hell no

Vichy Idealia BB cream - This BB cream has a nice dewy finish on your skin + it has a bit of coverage & it's suitable for girl with pale skin. I liked it at first but it is just not meant to be for girls with oily skin, because it cakes on you in just a while and you look like and oily mess.
Purchase: no

Vichy Normaderm Night Detox - I've seen some beauty bloggers raving about this product, so I had two samples and I've used them up, I got 7 uses out of them and I didn't think this product was anything special. I love Vichy products, but this one dissappointed me because I didn't wake up with less oily skin or whatever.
Purchase: no

IsaDora Gentle Eye Make-up Remover milk - This irritated & burned my eyes a bit, so I didn't like it. I just used it up to throw it away.
Purchase: nope

Dr.Hauschka Rose Nurturing Body Wash - As I've mentioned one time before, I don't like rose scents, so I didn't like this one. But it was a nice body wash, I just don't see anything special in it.
Purchase: nope

Decleor Hydra Floral 24hrs moisture activator rich cream - this face cream was really moisturizing and it had a nice suttle floral scent, however these creams are expensive and they don't do anything special to my skin
Purchase: nope

Love and Lemons, Simona

  1. Moram probat tale prvi Garnier šampon pa Rexona deodorante, čeprav so mi Niveini čist ok, ker se itak ne potim preveč. :)
    Kako je pa kaj tale Lush Dream Cream losjon? :)

    1. Joj, očitno se mi je zbrisalo kaj sem o tem Dream Cream losjonu pisala, bom dopisala in dala link, ker sem že pisala o njem. Drugač je pa to meni edina stvar, ki mi res pomaga pri grozno suhi koži na nogah.
