Products I've Used Up♥

I haven't done an empties post in over a year. Since I came back from my holidays in July, I've finished up heaps of products, and it only made sense to keep them to then share them. I, myself, like empties because people can give their full, honest opinion on the products as they've completely finished them. 


Body Washes

I managed to finish up 8 body washes! Firstly is The Body Shop's Brazil Nut Shower Cream, it smells like caramel and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. I also finished Soap and Glory's Sugar Crush Body Wash, it's brilliant to use as it's refreshing and smells like citrus. Next is The Body Shop's Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel, it smells ever so fresh and floral! I emptied up the NIVEA Powerfruit Fresh Shower Gel, it's creamy, smells fruity and makes you feel more awake. I finished 3 LUSH shower gels; Hot Toddy which smells like cinnamon and is basically Christmas in a bottle, So White which smells like apple and makes me feel like Snow White and Snow Fairy which is one of LUSH's most loved Christmas products and reminds me of strawberry laces and bubblegum. The last body wash I finished is Soap and Glory's Clean Girls Body Wash, this is incredibly creamy and almost luxurious, and smells gorgeous.


Body Butters

My skin was dry after my holidays so I finished a lot of body butters. Firstly, I finished two of Soap and Glory's Righteous Butter; a mini and a full size. This stuff is pretty much a godsend! Continuing with Soap and Glory, I finished their Butter Yourself Body Butter which smells phenomenal, as well as finishing their Sugar Crush Body Buttercream, it smells the same as the body wash, and I love it! Next up, I scraped every last drop, The Body Shop Mango Body Butter, it's rich and creamy, and reminds me of a yoghurt (yummm..) as well as the The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter, which if you know me, I love coconut body butters so this was a hit with me. I finished the Sanctuary Spa Body Butter which I believe I finished last year, and it works wonders with dry skin. Lastly, I finished up the Ted Baker Body Souffle was creamy yet moisturised your skin thoroughly.



Body Lotions

As well as body butters, I went through a few body lotions. Firstly, I completely used up Dove's Visible Effects Body Lotion, this stuff I knew I'd love as soon as I got it, and I was right, it was brilliant! I tried to empty every single last drop from Ted Baker's London Regency Houses Body Lotion as it felt really hydrating on the skin. Soap and Glory's Righteous Butter Body Lotion was a real treat - it's pretty much the righteous butter except a lotion version! Finally, a little different, but I used up Soap and Glory's Heel Genius Foot Cream, it honestly does help smooth your heels and leaves them summer shoes ready (even though we're in A/W now..)



Body Scrubs

I take ages to finish a whole body scrub itself, but I finished my 2 favourites. Firstly, I finished up The Body Shop Raspberry Body Scrub. This stuff literally smells good enough to eat, although I don't suggest you do, because it isn't made to be ate.. Anyways, this scrubbed your skin gently, and left my skin both feeling and smelling gorgeous! My other finished body scrub is Soap and Glory's The Scrub Of Your Life. I've had numerous tubes of this as it's one of the best I've tried, and isn't too harsh on your skin. It's ideal in Winter as it helps improve dry patches of skin like a miracle.



Haircare

I was actually surprised with the amount of hair products I finished, and everything is Lee Stafford. Starting with basics, Lee Stafford Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner. I like these two in conjunction with one another as it leaves your hair in good condition. I used up two hair treatments; Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment which is an absolute miracle (read about it here) as well as the Lee Stafford Pre-Shampoo Treatment, this stuff helps your hair and makes sure it's in a good state. The Lee Stafford Glossing Blow Dry Gel is completely empty as I used it every time I dried my hair and it did live up to it's name leaving it shiny. I've finished to the last drop of Lee Stafford's Nourishing Miracle Oil as I applied it on the ends of my hair to leave them soft. Finally, I finished the Lee Stafford Original Dry Shampoo as it's a total life saver and helped out with many bad hair days!



Skincare

I didn't get through that many skincare products as a lot of them are relatively new. I finished up two face washes; the Skin Therapy Facial Wash was my morning face wash to freshen my skin and the Skin Therapy Tea Tree Facial Wash was my evening face wash to fully cleanse my face after the day. I finally finished my Boots Essentials Moisturiser, and if you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know I've been a fan of this for ages, but now I've finished it, I think it might be time to try something else.

What have you been finishing up lately? Or have you tried anything I've finished?

  9. I haven't yet tried any Soap and Glory products (American problems) but this post has made me want them! Glad to see you liked everything. I may have to get my hands on a body butter here soon as fall/winter is coming. I just moved next to The Body Shop, so I'll have to add some of these to my list to try out when I finally go in. Thanks! :)

  18. I wish I cold get through so many empties! Especially body butters, I just constantly buy so many and never use them up. You've got through so many of my favourites though, especially the Lush and Soap and Glory ones. I'll need to get on with it!

  19. I love finishing beauty products, it makes me feel so accomplished for some reason. :) Although I hate when I go to buy a new one to replace and I find out that the company isn't making it anymore, or they've changed the formula, grrr.

  21. That's a lot of empties, but agree it makes a lot of sense to say what they were like after they've had a good use. The soap & glory heel stuff looks useful, even though we're heading towards winter now
