June Empties!

It’s empties time again, and I’ve only got a small crop for you (well, at least by my usual standards). Shall we get going?

Haircare to start, and there’s a bottle of the usual, Herbal Essences Bee Strong conditioner, which you know that I love (review here), but I also went through a fair amount of other conditioner too! I like the Sainsbury’s Basics Conditioner for finishing off left over shampoo – it’s cheap and it does the job. There are no frills, but I like the plain clean smell, and when you go through as much conditioner as I do, the litre bottle is quite handy. I also changed things up a little and went for Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine conditioner, which is nice but not as weighty as the Bee Strong.  Continue reading

January Empties!

Wow, January’s gone by so fast! The end of the month has really snuck up on me, and it’s already time for empties. Want to see what I’ve been using and finishing in the last few weeks?

The first couple of photos are things I finished at home, the rest I have finished in Oxford. Rather than store everything until the end of the month, I decided to photograph things in twos and threes, as they were finished, and then ditch the packaging so it wasn’t hanging around for ages! That’s why things aren’t in neat categories, but just in random groups…

My December Favourites

I’ve never actually done a favourites post before, but why not start now? I’ve been using some products this month that I just want to rave about (even if I’ve done so before), so I’ve wrapped them all up into one simple post!

The cold weather, combined with very hot central heating, leaves my skin completely gasping for a drink! I’ve been slathering The Body Shop Wild Rose hand cream on my hands whenever I can. It’s a nice formula – not as perfect as L’Occitane’s hand cream, but still nice – but what sells it for me is that gorgeous rose scent. It’s lasting without being cloying, and definitely not old ladyish! For more general moisturising, I’ve been liking NSpa Passionfruit body butter – not a very Christmassy scent, I know, but I still like it, and this really does a good job of keeping dry skin at bay.  Continue reading

October Empties!

You’ve been a little spoiled with empties recently, what with my double whammy of September products, but luckily for you I’ve still been finishing products left, right and centre. Want to take a look?

All these photos were taken in slightly weird light, so sorry about that! A sneak peek inside my empties bag to start you off… Continue reading

Review: Herbal Essences Bee Strong Shampoo and Conditioner

had to have this shampoo and conditioner scent as soon as I heard about it – I’m a big Herbal Essences fan, and a big honey fan, and my hair is still very damaged from two-year-old bleach. This couldn’t be more made for me, and I have not been disappointed. I love Bee Strong!

Shopping My Stash #2!

Did you see last week’s post, where I explained the concept of stash shopping? Well, I like a bit of variety in my routines, so I’ll be switching up my beauty products every week from now on, and showing you what I’ll be using!
