Product Empties: Summer 2016

Even though I buy a lot of stuff, I do use up products as well.


Here are the items I have used up over the summer months.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush

Dry shampoo is always an essential product to have at home and on the go. This travel size had a nice floral scent too, but I’m unsure whether I’d repurchase this specific one or just get the original next time.

Dove Absolute Quench Conditioner 

Dove hair products are really great. This line was very good to my hair and I will definitely repurchase.

Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Conditioner

I have mentioned this stuff before, and I still adore this conditioner. Absolutely amazing for restoring my bleached locks with some moisture.

Lush Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Cream 

An amazing scent!! So rich and creamy, what more could you ask for ?

Lush Charity Pot Hand and Body Lotion

Ah the charity pot! This is the most moisturizing hand cream I have ever used and will ever use. Plus, every pot you purchase gives back to the charity featured on the lid. It’s really the perfect product all around.

Rituals Foaming Shower Gel Sensation in Yogi Flow

Rituals body products are so luxurious. It feels like being at a spa every time I use it. This scent is sweet and rich, so indulgent. I will repurchase, even though these products are quite pricy.

The Body Shop Coconut Shower Cream

I really liked the scent of this shower cream, everything coconut is great! The packaging however isn’t great, it’s almost impossible to get the product out, which means I won’t be getting more of these travel sizes.


Bioderma Micellar Solution

Bioderma still is my go-to morning cleanser and all around makeup removing tool. It’s so gentle, yet equally as effective. I bring this everywhere I go, I have a bottle in my room and my bathroom. I couldn’t recommend this product more.

Derma E Hydrating Day Crème 

Still my favourite daytime moisturizer. It’s slightly scented, however does not irritate the skin whatsoever. I will repurchase for sure!

Ren ClearCalm3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser

A really really really good cleanser that does not dry out the skin, yet calms and clears.


Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

The best setting spray, I will repurchase until something better comes along, which I don’t think it will.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

I was not too sure about this primer at first, but then I learned that less is more and that made all the difference.

Maybelline Dark Circle Eraser 

The BEST under eye concealer at a drugstore price. This is maybe the fifth one I have used up.

Chanel Le Volume Mascara

This hurts even seeing it in this post. I LOVE this mascara and would repurchase immediately if it wasn’t almost fifty dollars.


That’s what I have used up lately.

Let me know which products are always in your trash.

Have a great weekend everyone.

    Hi Adele

    If you want a cheaper alternative to mascara may I recommend Essence (shoppers/pharmarix). Fabulous stuff and cheap. Actually I use the mascara and the liquid lipstick. I still have totry liquid eyeliner, but trying to finish the one I have. Which I m still trying to find the best waterproof/all day lasting liquid eyeliner after trying over 20 kinds I still haven’t found it 😩

      awww thanks for the recommendation! I will have to start using more Essence products 🙂 I really like Korean brand Tony Moly for liquid liners. I believe they are available online.
