April Empties

Each month I'm emptying more and more, it's such a great feeling. It's forcing me to think about whether or not an item is worth repurchasing, and making more room in my bathroom for the things I really love. Here is what I used up in the month of April:

Sunsilk Purifying Scalp Care Shampoo and Conditioner-This wasn't the worst anti-dandruff product I've used. It was much more nourishing and didn't dry out my hair like others, but it also didn't completely rid me of the flakes. Light dandruff sufferers would probably be best suited to this.

Garnier Ambre Solaire Preparation Scrub- Loved this, smelt great and was a good rough scrub. Won it ages ago and it came alongside fake tanners, but I used it as a regular scrub as well as a preparatory one. Will repurchase.

Clinique Anti-Blemish Moisturiser- Doesn't last long enough, but it great for my super-dry skin. Feels light but gives me enough moisturisation. I have a feeling I will succumb to this bad boy again soon.

Botanical Creations Scrub, Rose and Sandalwood- LOVE!So cheap, a great scrub, stunning scent, feels expensive but is cheaper than coffee! On sale at Priceline for $2 (more scents available) so RUN! (I purchased 4, am going back to get more to stash away/give as gifts)

Jurlique Rosewater Mist- Review to come shortly, all I will say is that I love this product, it makes me smile.

Revlon Colorstay UnderEye Concealer-Review here. Am going to test run a few other concealers before I purchase this again.

Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater bath&shower gel- A realistic rose scented bath/shower gel, a review to come shortly.

Burt's Bees Radiance Body Lotion sample- Adored this, reviewed here.

Rexona Girl Tropical Energy (mini)- I'll go out on a limb and say this is my fave deodorant. Smells grand, and the mini cans last for ages and fit snugly in my bag.

be Yourself eyeshadow palette- Throwing this, I have so many beautiful shadows in my collection that this shares a drawer with, it disrespects them. Don't trust them on my eyes, either.

Colour Co Hot Pink blush- My darling mother posing as Santa bought this for me last year, and for the same reasons as above I am throwing it. Cannot make the bright pink suit me, it's patchy, and I fear I will breakout if I used it. Plus, it broke!> >
So there is what I used up in April, feel free to link to your 'Empties' in the comments so I can have a sneak peek (I love reading these sorts of posts:))
