May Empties

Yay June and winter Is here! It's been a bit of a sad month for me on the empties mission and an even sadder month when it comes to getting the internet set up in our new house. But Thats a whole blog post in itself so before I use up all my Macca's free wifi allowance I'll get onto showing you the products I used up this month.

1. Johnsons's Baby Conditioning Shampoo: No I haven't recently had a baby if thats what you're thinking, I use this baby shampoo to deep clean my makeup brushes and it does a fantastic job! I have already repurchased another bottle.

2. Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo: Any dry shampoo from the Bastiste range is a winner in my books and I always have a few cans available in my stash as I use them frequently.

3. Ganier Miracle Skin Perfecting Cream: This 'skin perfecting' cream looks like any standard face cream until you rub it into your skin and it turns a peachy skin colour. I found the product didn't make any difference to my skin when used by itself although I enjoyed using it underneath makeup as a moisturiser/primer.

4. Schick Hydro Silk Razor: An absolutely fantastic razor, Ive already opened a new one.

5. Almay Eye Makeup Removing Pads: These lightly damp pads actually surprised me with how well they removed my eye makeup! They didn't dry out after having the container opened for a while, and didn't irritate my eyes whatsoever so I was really impressed.

6. Auromere Fluoride Free Toothpaste: I'm all about trying natural products, toothpaste included. I purchased this one of and when I opened it and saw the colour of the paste was brown I have to admit I was a little hesitant to try it. Surprisingly it was fresh and cleaned my teeth well, it has a subtle taste of liquorice so If you're not a fan of the taste I would avoid this toothpaste.

7. Veet Waxaway Sensitive Wax Strips: These strips were another surprise to me as they actually worked quite well! They didn't leave sticky residue on me like other wax strips I have tried and they were super easy to use! I would definitely recommend them.

Well thats all I've managed to get through this month, hopefully June has a better outcome. Thanks for reading and let me know if you're enjoying the cooler weather as I can't get enough of it.

  1. I'm keep to try the veet strips, my other waxaway strips from NADs were awful, the wax got stuck to my skin and can't get it off!

    1. Ugh I hate when that happens! Its hard to find a good wax system but the natural ones weren't too bad!! x

  2. Eek brown toothpaste, I don't blame you for being hesitant!! Glad it worked though and didn't have to go to waste. :) Hope you are settling into your new place well and get the internet sorted soon. I would DIE without it, so I have no idea how you are managing?! :P Hoping to get my May empties up tonight. I am still in the editing process. :) xx
