Empties #14

Sunday, July 26, 2015

Hello girls.
I'm excited to share with you another empties post. I absolutely love finishing products and I think I'm good at downsizing my collection, however I receive more products that one person can use up. Still strugling with that. Let's see what I liked or didn't like...

Avon Nutra Effects Self-foaming Face wash
I absolutely loved this face wash. Thanks to Avon for this and many other lovely products ! Ok, so it was nicely creamy, gentle and smelled really fresh. It felt like it cleansed my skin quite well. Review here.
Purchase: maybe

Lush Ocean Salt - face and body scrub
I loved this one as well. I wrote a review but totally forgot to post about it. All in all, it's a great scrub. Quite harsh, however if you use a minimum amount and lots of water it is very pleasant. Smells like the sea and feels nice on the skin. It's quite creamy and nourishing as well.
Repurchase: yes

GreenLine Micellar water
I really liked this micellar water. Unlike the others, this one has a pleasant floral scent. It removed my makeup nicely. Though I can't believe I received it a year ago. Review here, also mentioned here.
Purchase: yes

Duchesse Cosmetic Cotton Pads
Because I use up cotton pads so often I like buying cheap ones. These are not the best because they're quite thin, but they totally work and I would say they're nice ! 
Repurchase: yes (always)

Balea anti-blackhead facestrips
I'm so angry because I picked up these facestrips which were meant for forhead and chin. Somebody misplaced them on the shelf so ofcourse I picked the wrong ones. I used them for my nose anyways. They were good though.
Repurchase: nope

Missha Super Aqua Perfect Cleansing Tissues
These were really nice and I enjoyed them a lot. They worked great and smelled so fresh. I loved the packaging with plastic opening/closing. Review here.
Repurchase: maybe

Beauty Woman Cotton Pads
These were really soft !!, however they are tearing up easily, so you're left with the "fluff". Besides that they work great. Cannot remember where I got them though.
Repurchase: maybe

Lush - Rub Rub Rub body scrub
I absolutely loved this one. At first (half way down) I thought it really smelled like soap and laundry detergent, however when I used up most of it, I ended up liking the smell which was more floral, zesty and beachy. It is definitely a nice body scrub: not the most harsh but if you use it on a more dry skin, it works well. I cannot say enough good things about it, because it has just a unique texture and feel. Review here.
Repurchase: maybe

Afrodita Cosmetics After Depilation Gel
A great product for all those girls who epilate their legs. It is very much like gel. Helps with irritation while it combats all those ingrown hairs - at least for me it worked ! The smell isn't the best but I don't mind it. Mentioned here.
Repurchase: probably !

Chilly Delicate intimate wash
I've talked about Chilly products being dangerous for your health because they contain an ingredient called: Triclosan (google it, please). I'm sad about that aspect as I love these intimate washes, especially the blue one. This one didn't impress me though. If you have any recommendations for intimate washes, please leave them down below.
Repurchase: nope

I love...Mango & Papaya shower gel
You can't probably see how huge this bottle is (500 ml) and it took a lot of time to use up. I like I love... products and their shower gels have the nicest smells, however I got bored of this one. I'd prefer a smaller version (250 ml). If you have an opportunity, I do recommend you smelling every scent.
Repurchase: maybe (currently I own 15 shower gels, so I should say no !)

Avon Naturals Detangling spray
This smelled really summery, like peach and coconut - basically nicely sweet. It really did work. I sprayed it onto my comb for wet hair and it was so easy to brush through my hair. Mentioned here.
Repurchase: maybe

Davines Hair Refresher / dry refreshing mist
I was really glad to have won this lovely product in a giveaway. As you might know, I love dry shampoos and this one was especially good. It smells really fresh, like lemons and it doesn't leave white residue on your hair (sometimes just a bit). It works, however if you have really greasy hair, you need a lot. To me it is really too expensive for this small bottle (around 15 €)
Purchase: sadly, no

Balea Totes Meer mask
This is only the half of the mask, however I can say it is great. It looks grey and dries up on your face. Texture is totally not appealing to look at as you can see the sea minerals and stuff. When you wash it off it works scruby and it softens your skin. I'd say it's nicely cleansing and very good for mixed/oily skin with some imperfections.
Repurchase: yes

Anemarie Borlind body effect anti-celullite gel
This smell very alcohol-like which is weird. Texture was liquidy but it sinks into your skin quickly. 
Purchase: no

Vichy Normaderm day cream
Absolutely love this stuff. I've talked about it too much I think. I've reviewed the Total Mat version. It's mattifying but hydrating at the same time. Smell is fresh and lovely.
Purchase: yes (already have one, I've won)

Stenders Hydrate your hair ! shampoo for dry and damaged hair
This one was really lovely. It softened my hair and hydrated it, however my hair type is definitely not dry so it greased up quickly.
Purchase: nope

The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail cream
Lovely hand cream which I'll probably miss. The smell wasn't my favorite because I hate almonds, however this one wasn't that bad. I loved the texture as it wasn't too thick but it moisturized my hands so well. I had a love and hate relationship with the packaging. You can squeeze every single drop out of it, however because it's made of metal, it deforms easily which frustrates me because then I want to straighten it out all the time. Mentioned here.
Repurchase: maybe

Burt's bees Replenishing lip balm (Pomegranate)
A really lovely lip balm. One of my favorite. This Pomegranate scent wasn't my favorite, however the texture of the lip balm and how it works on my lips is just great ! Mentioned here.
Repurchase: probably

(I threw away the packaging at the festival)

CadeaVera Anti-Spot Cleansing wipes (Young) 
The scent is really fresh and nice. They don't do the best job at removing my makeup but I wash my face anyways so sometimes I just want something to remove most of my makeup (at least on my face,maybe not on my eyes) and at that time these are very handy. 
Repurchase: probably

Phillip Martin's Purifying shampoo - sample
This was such an interesting shampoo ! It was quite liquidy, however the smell - it smelled really minty which I thought I wouldn't like but I did like a lot. It was so refreshing, I can't believe it. Also it cleansed my hair so good, while leaving it soft. How it looks: here.
Purchase: maybe (I think it's expensive)
