Empties #1

Friday, March 22, 2013
I have posted quite a lot of 'empties' blog posts over the past four months or so but I have been waiting for the end of the month to do my 'monthly empties' but I always have SO many products at the end of the month and sometimes I can't remember what they were like exactly so I am going to do empties posts when I have a good amount of products to show rather than the end of month empties posts. This is the first in a series of posts about the empty products I have used up recently and there will be mini reviews of the products I feature. 
1. KMS California Curl Up Conditioner: I bought this last summer as it was reduced at about £4 on salonskincare I think. I have been using this for the past month or so (on and off) and I really like this conditioner. The scent is quite nice, it really conditions my hair without weighing it down and it detangles hair hair (mostly). The main claim of this product thought is to enhance and support curls, I have really wavy/curly hair naturally and I find that this did help a little bit but not as much as I thought it would. Overall, it doesn't help curls that much but it is a fantastic conditioner. Recommended. 

2. Yves Rocher Clarifying Shampoo: I bought this last summer and it was on off so I had two bottles of this (buy one get one free). I love the scent, it is so fresh and lovely. Yves Rocher definitely make the best smelling hair products! The shampoo is a really good clarifying product although it did make my scalp quite dry which I didn't like but other than that it was good. 

3. The Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Butter: I received this in a gift set at christmas and I really like the scent - it smells like ginger/cinnamon muffins. I have used a lot of the body butters from the Body Shop and I love most of them but this one was very thick, heavy and it didn't absorb quickly. I prefer the other body butter! Not recommended. 

4. Soap and Glory The Daily Smooth Body Butter: I LOVE S&G products! They smells gorgeous and this one is no exception. The scent is gorgeous, it smooths on easily and it absorbs fairly quickly. However, it is not my favourite body butter by far! I probably wouldn't buy this again as it is not amazing.

5. Lush Let The Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser: This product is a Christmas limited edition but you may be able to find this on eBay. The cleanser smells amazing! It smells like toffee, baking and vanilla - heaven! The cleanser was exfoliating but gentle and it cleaned my skin well leaving it smooth, soft and comfortable. Love this cleanser and I may buy it again this Christmas. Save your empty Lush pots/tubes as you can get a free face mask if you take back five empty containers (unfortunately I keep forgetting)!

6. Boots Botanics Fair trade Bergamot Body Butter: I have tried a few mini body butters from this range and they are all great! I like the scent of them all and they smooth on easily. They moisturise really well and they absorb fairly quickly - LOVE!

Its snowing today (again)!
