Products I've Used Up - February 2016

Hi everyone,

It's empties time again, and this time around I have accumlated quite a lot of stuff. There's also a few fails in this one, but I'll leave those until the end.

Mitchum Advanced 48 Hour Anti-Perspirant in Pure Fresh & Pure Floral
I thought I would change things up a little bit, and try something new. So, I decided to give the Mitchum deodorants a go. They are okay, but not brilliant; but the scents are lovely. I'm unsure if I would repurchase these again.

Mitchum Ulimate 48 Hour Protection in Pure Fresh
I thought I would try something new for my night time deodorant, and again I wasn't overly fond of this. The only thing that I liked was the scent.

I know I said I would leave fail items until the end, but these aren't that bad as what is coming up at the end of the post.

Aveda Scalp Benefits Shampoo & Conditioner
I absolutely loved these to clarify my hair and scalp, and they smell like dandilion and burdock. I would buy these again, if I ever felt the need to deep cleanse my scalp.

Pantene Youth Protect 7 Shampoo
I thought I would give Pantene a whirl again, since I hadn't used it for years. I really quite enjoyed it using this, and the scent was very nice. Even though I enjoyed using this I'm actually unsure if I would repurchase it again.

Neom Real Luxury Organic Hand Wash
This was lovely to use, and the scent very relaxing because it had lavender in it. These are lovely hand washes, but they are on the pricey side. I might pick one up again, if I can find it at the right price. But, I also flew through this extremely quickly.

The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel

This is a lovely shower gel to use, especially during the warmer months of the year. I have repurchased this a number of times, and I will buy it again in the future.

Bioderma Micellar Water

I have finally worked through my final bottle of Bioderma, and this took me around six months to use up. I may repurchase this again in the future, but I would like to try the more purse friendly options that are now available.

Dior Purifying Cleansing Milk for Normal/ Combination Skin

I thought I would try the Dior Purifying Cleansing Milk again, as it was something that I had during my teenage years. I was really looking forward to using this again, but sadly it wasn't to be. The scent had changed for one, as it used to have a lovely floral scent; but now it has more of a strong baby powder smell. Also, this didn't perform as well as I thought it would.

Bath & Body Works Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps in Caribbean Escapre & Watermelon Lemonade

I love the Bath & Body Works deep cleansing hand soaps. The watermelon lemonade scent was too die for, and I have one more in my collection. The scent which I was most looking forward to using was Caribbean Escape, and this had a lovely fresh fruity scent. I will continue to repurchase these, as long as can get my hands on them.

ESPA Energising Shower Gel

This shower gel was full of essential oils, and it had a lovely ecalyptus fragrance. It also lathered really nicely. If I ever want to treat myself to a luxury shower gel, then I might pick this one up again.

Jo Malone Orange Blossom Cologne 30ml

Here's something that doesn't happen that often, and thats finishing up a fragrance. I love the fragrances that Jo Malone has to offer, but this is one where I got a little bit sick of scent towards the end. I might consider repurchasing it again in the future, but its a no for the moment.

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Body Butter

This is a lovely thick body butter, which is ideal to use during the colder months. The scent of this is heavenly. This is a definate repurchase.

The Body Shop Coconut Creamy Body Scrub

This is my favourite coconut body scrub, and I have repurchased this numerous times. I'm trying something a little different at the moment, but I will repurchase it again in the future.

Deep Steep Lavender & Camomile Argan Oil Sugar Scrub

This was a lovely, gritty body scrub, and a little bit went a long way. If I could get my hands in it again then I might consider picking another one.

Colgate Plax in Soft Mint

This is the mouthwash I use before I brush my teeth. I'm currently using a different mouthwash from Colgate, but I do another one of these to use once I have finished my current one up.

Simple Cleansing Make Up Wipes

These are lovely to use, and they remove most make up. I'm currently using a different brand of make up wipes, but I do have another packet of these to use once I have finished my current make up wipes.

Bath & Body Works Fragrance Mist in Beautiful Day (Travel Size)

These are lovely refreshing mists from Bath & Body Works. 'Beautiful Day' is a lovely apple fragrance with a hint of musk. I keep these in my handbag for a little pick me up, and I do have another of these in 'Beautiful Day'.

Bath & Body Works Pocketbac in Pure Paradise

I've gone through countless of these over the past couple of years, and I will continue to purchase.

Decleor Hydra Floral Light Moisturiser

This is a lovely light moisturiser to use during the day. But, with this being the smaller size I flew through this in about six weeks which I wasn't expecting. I will consider buying this again in the future, but in the bigger size because it is a really nice moisturiser.

Angel Perfumed Shower Gel & Body Cream

These layer together are gorgeous, and not as strongly scented as the actual fragrance but the scent hung around until the following day. I got three uses out of the shower gel as I had to use quite a lot of product to get a decent lather, and two and a bit uses out of the body cream. The body cream is light formula, but moisturising which I quite surprised about. I don't think I would buy the shower gel, but I am considering the body cream.

Molton Brown Rose Graniti Fine Liquid Hand Wash

It may only be a small bottle, but this lasted ages because you only need a tiny amount to get a decent lather. I wasn't fond of the scent, but I might consider buying another hand wash from Molton Brown in a different fragrance.

Optrex Rehydrating Eye Drops

These are just my preferred eye drops to use for when my eyes start feeling a little dry, and I have repurchased these a few times.


Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
I wasn't impressed with this, as it didn't feel as though it was doing much in the way of cleansing, and I also wasn't over keen on the scent. But, I did use it all up in the hope that it might actually do something, but in the end it did absolutly nothing. It also has has a slight runny texture, so I ended using a lot of product. Sadly, this just isn't for me.

Murad Refreshing Cleanser
I expected this to be really good, especially with it coming from a brand like Murad. But, again this did nothing, and it had a weird stringy texture when it was coming out of the tube. 

The Body Shop Aloe Calming Toner
I was looking forward to using this as it would be ideal for when my skin decides to go through a fuuny phase. The scent was nice, but this is just a basic toner. I used it up, but I was getting a little tired of it towards the end.

Benefit 'Be Potent' Eye Cream
I was thrilled to bits when I received this in one of Birchboxes, as I always fancied trying it. It did a good job when I first started using it, but the last I used I slight reaction to it.

Biotherm Blue Therapy Moisturiser
This is a lovely hydrating product, if your skin can handle thick moisturisers. Sadly, mine can't. It did a very good at hydrating my skin, it was just the texture was too thick for my skin to handle.
