We're close to finishing the second quarter of 2016, so I thought I'd get a wriggle on and finally pop up the first instalment in my empties for 2016. I've already started filling up my empties bag with the next batch, and I'm hoping to really dwindle down my shower and body stash this year to get it to a manageable level.
SHOWERThe Body Shop Shower Gels (Vineyard Peach + Satsuma) are so damn good, they're my favourite for lathering up and the scents are always really interesting, albeit more pricy than my Original Source (Lime) supermarket staple. I reeeeally enjoyed the Palmolive Heavenly Vanilla Body Wash and will definitely have that as a staple when my stocks are depleted, vanilla is everything, for real. I also finished off my tub of Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner*, the perfect lazy-girl winter moisturiser but a bit of a luxe bathing treat for me.
HAIR & BODY
Yet another Rexona, and I finished off my Hollister Silver Strand Beach body spray (that I actually used as a room spray, bit too artificial for my tastes) Have any of you been into a Hollister store? I loved the one in Doncaster, it was dark and mystical in there with the constant sound of rolling waves thanks to the beach film on the walls there - sad to see that the store is gone! Only one hair product finished (Schwarzkopf Ultimate Repair Anti-Damage Mask) and I may have just forgotten to include the Bvlgari Rose Essentielle perfume in my last empies as I think I finished it quite some time ago.
An average makeup remover (Maybelline Make-Up Remover*) and lacklustre micellar water (Caudalie Cleansing Water) are gone, as is a dried up pack of Yes To Cucumbers Wipes*. Sad to see my Bioderma Crealine, Dermalogica Precleanse and La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (aka the love of my skincare life...) finished but they will all be repurchased at some point. Cracked out the Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips and the My Beauty Diary Red Vine mask during a husband-wife pamper night so they're all gone as well.
How are you going with managing your beauty stash?
Are you good at keeping things manageable, or do you struggle like I currently am?
