April empties – scrubs, lotions, and hair potions –
Is it empties time again already? Well April’s blue basket is much fuller than March’s so let’s all have a gander to see what we finished in the COPD household….
Scrubs & Lotions
From left to right:
Lush Dark Angels – Yes that stupid looking banana skin/palm frond represents an even stupider product. Well maybe that’s a bit harsh but I didn’t think much of DA, and I did a full review if you want to read it.
C. Booth Peppermint Foot Scrub – This was okay-ish, but it wasn’t thick enough to slough off dry scaly feet skin. I ended up using this as a manicure scrub and it’s a shame really because I like C.Booth stuff.
Lush Australian Igloo (stripey red white bag) – This was kindly given to me by a Lush employee to try but unfortunately I found this scrub way too scratchy and hard to use in the shower.
C. Booth Honey & Almond Body Butter – This is a lovely body butter that absorbs easily and smells like a creamy hazelnut latte. I would buy it again if I didn’t have so many other body butters to get through!
Korres Quince Body Butter – This was a bit too thick for me but has a gorgeous scent.
100% Pure Kona Coffee Scrub – This a flippin fabulous coffee scrub that shall be bought again at some point when I’ve finished off some of the other scrubs I have.
True Blue Spa Apricot & White Face Scrub – This was okay and I think Jamie enjoyed it more than me.
Left to right:
Champneys Spa Indulgence Thai Royale Beauty Oil – This was a gift from a lovely friend and was a pleasure to use. It makes you skin soft and smells really decadent.
Bath & Body Works (Into the Wild & Hawaii Coconut) – Jamie and I enjoyed both of these shower gels immensely. I think the Hawaii Coconut is now discontinued though but they always have something coconut scented in their ranges.
Le Petit Marseillais – Yes my gorgeous French shower gel friends! Jamie hogged most of the Orange & Pamplemousse one because he liked saying the name!
Hair stuffs & other miscellaneous bits
Left to right:
B&BW Orchard Leaves Anti-bacterial hand wash – Yes I will be buying loads more of the anti-bac hand washes; they are fab, don’t dry out your hands and leave them smelling gorgeous!
Kiehl’s Yerba Mate Tea Toner – Great everyday toner and lasts ages.
Tresemme Thermal Recovery conditioner – This is a great conditioner even for my straw like hair, I will be buying this again.
Samples (Elemis/Aveda/Pureology) – I did a review of these already so technically it’s cheating as I’ve already counted them so don’t tell anyone!
Aussie Mega Instant Conditioner – This didn’t work for me but as always Aussie products smell lovely. I’ve bought a different range from them try again this month so I don’t give up hope that something from Aussie will work for me.
So the goal for May is to keep plowing through my stuff before I replace it with some other stuff from the US. My dad has informed that I’m not allowed to raid Bath & Body Works this time as ‘surely you must have a load of crap left over from last time’. Ahem – no comment.
So on the subject of empties – which products do you find hardest/easiest to finish?
