May Empties

Another month has flown by and I’ve managed to power through a few shower products, some moisturising products and some usual suspects. Next month will hopefully see more makeup products (NYX Peach, be gone!) but I’m still quite pleased with the bulky items that have bit the dust this month.
The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter – this is something that has been in my stash for a long time now, and I’m glad to have used it up before it turned or anything like that. The Moringa scent is just amazing and the body butter formula is nice and thick, though I do wish they would sink in a bit quicker. I enjoyed this and am planning on repurchasing another scent in this small tub form sometime down the line.

Maybelline Total Clean City Rescue Eye Makeup Remover- Happy to have bought this on sale, and like the slim line packaging and the nice formula. I still prefer the Clinique version, but considering it is much pricier this one will probably be a repurchase for me.

Daiso Cosmetic Cotton – was peer pressured into buying this by some fellow beauty bloggers while out shopping with them, and I was pleased with how cheap (and soft!) these cotton squares are.
QV Heel Balm*- This should have been used up long ago, but I think it is safe to say that we are all guilty of neglecting our feet far too often! This was thick and softened the feet nicely, though the smell wasn’t something I’d shout about.

Spray Fresh Activ Deodorant – This was a decent deodorant but I will still stick with Rexona.

Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub* – A really nice scrub that smells just like the inside of a Pancake Parlour! Maple syrup dominates this and the scrub is great at sloughing away dead skin and leaving the skin soft. Pleased at how affordable this is ($18.95 at Kit Cosmetics) and would purchase in the future.

Soap & Glory Clean Girls body wash- I really wasn’t a fan of this scent, it was sort of medicinal and milky. I was glad this was only a travel size I picked up from Thailand!

Soap & Glory The Scrub of Your Life body buffer- This was a nice enough body scrub, but I think if you are wanting to buy a scrub from Soap & Glory I would go for the Breakfast Scrub or perhaps their Pulp Friction, which incidentally is the one I am hoping to buy next.
How often do you finish up body scrubs?
 What eye makeup remover is your favourite?

*Provided for consideration. Honesty, always.


  1. I'd love to try Soap and Glory products! You have sooo many empties! I have yet to make an empties post/video. Hopefully soon!

    1. @Aislinn They are so nice, I highly recommend the body scrubs and the Fab Pore cleanser, so good! I love reading empties posts, it is good motivation to use up half done tubes :)

  2. I have seen a lot of videos where people talk about Soap & Glory and it makes me really curious about it :D
    My favorite eye makeup remover comes from Yves Rocher. Its called Pure Bleuet :)

    1. @shortylegsbeauty It is such a fun brand, I haven't really been disappointed with anything from them and I've tried quite a lot of their range! I have heard a lot about Yves Rocher, would love to try it out one day!

  3. I know this isn't beauty related, but was wondering if you could do a post about your teaching placement experience? I'm also on placement at the moment, would be great to read how yours went!

    1. @Clare I will definitely keep that idea in mind Clare, perhaps post about it with a beauty edge to it? Hope your placement is going well, I'm absolutely relishing in mine and am excited about entering this line of work soon! x

  4. Good work, a lot of empties! I only had one empty this month :(

    1. @citygirl907 Thank you, I was quite pleased with how much I got through this month :) Don't worry, I'm sure like me you have some months with lots of empties and some with none at all! Completely natural I think x

  5. Ummmmm...that breakfast scrub sounds good! I want to smell like pancakes. :(

    Also, how good is Daiso! I fucking love that place. haha

  6. OMG Breakfast Scrub sounds just too delicious! Deliciously scented products are a weakness...

    I've just finished my first bottle of the new Maybelline remover in May too so you'll spot it in my empties. It's a good product for the price :)

  7. That Breakfast Scrub sounds absolutely divine! Since I've been in France I've been using virtually nothing but products from Yves Rocher, they have the perfect combination of good formulas and reasonable prices.


I'd love to hear your opinion on this post! Please don't leave links in your comments, I always check out the bloggers who comment so there is no need :)
