Empties #3

Blogger has decided to do its own thing today I guess! Sorry about that :)
I am currently using products up like nobody's business. Seriously, considering the time span since my last Empties post (link here) and the amount of producs I have accumulated again, you must think my whole day consists of slapping creams, scrubs and other potions on to my body ;)

No makeup products this month as I am really walking around with minimal makeup, the main reason being that school started again for me and that on top of everything, the weather is incredibly hot and unbearable at the moment. So without further ado...


The Body Shop Rainforest Shine Conditioner
I have yet to find the perfect conditioner for my hair since I find they all weigh my very fine hair down and make it look a bit greasy and unfortunately this one was no exception. It has quite a unique, herbal scent to it which I like, but in the end it didn't quite deliver.

Alverde Aloe Vera and Hibiscus Haarkur
This is the best hair treatment I've come across so far, it smells lovely, makes my hair oh-so soft and really moisturizes it without adding to much weight to my mane. Repurchased!


Balea Augen Makeup Entferner Waterproof
The makeup remover I always go back to, it removes waterproof mascara with only minimal effort and is overall a very good product that is reasonably priced. Always have one of these at home!

essence eye makeup remover waterproof
I found a half-empty bottle of this in one of my drawers and decided to just use it up. It's not as good as the Balea one, it doesn't remove my eye makeup (which mainly consists of mascara) as well and it also stung my eyes a bit.

Balea Soft & Care Makeup Wipes
I think I feature one of these in every Empties post that I do, they're just so convenient at for removing any face makeup and the residue from my eye makeup remover. Need to pick up a new pack soon!


Balea Creme-Öl Peeling Indian Chai
I'm still mad at myself for not buying 153 backups of this at the beginning of this year as it was a limited edition. A gorgeous scrub that removes dead skin cells very nicely and smells DIVINE!

Balea Body Lotion for Normal Skin
Not much to say about this lotion: it moisturizes and sinks in rather quickly. Good product overall! Would repurchase.

The Body Shop Chocomania Body Butter
I have a love-hate relationship with TBS body butters. I love them for being so moisturizing and making my skin incredibly soft, but I hate them for their scent, particularly this one. I hate strong smells in beauty products and so I ended up using this one as a hand cream at night (I mean, you can't smell while you sleep, can you?).  But there's a happy ending alert: I recently noticed they have released a few new body butters which smell rather amazing, oh well...

What products have you used up recently?

  1. Ooh my hair also has that issue, can you write a post when you find a conditioner that works for you?

    1. Ah unfortunately I'm still searching, but I will definitely keep you updated! :) x

  2. I adore empties posts, I like to see what other people use, may have to start doing them myself. Also hi I'm a new follower, your blog is wonderful :)
