Empties #7

I normally post my empties mid month, but as you can see I had to blog about them well earlier than normal, the bag was literally over flowing. Its so funny to see just how much I get through each month, and these are just the products I am using not the entire family! As usual I am soo sad about some of them ending, others not so. Here goes.........

Cath Kidston Blossom Bath Salts 35g £4.99
I was very disappointed with these bath salts, the bath smelt so different to plain water and there was no softness to the water.

Lavera Rose Garden Bath Salts 80g £2.99
Loved these bath salts, the bath felt amazing so soft, relaxing and the scent was strong. I really enjoyed trying them out. I will certainly be purchasing more soon.

Lush Blue Fun £5.00*
This I though was a gimmick, but I actually really enjoyed using it. The bath water turned into a blue lagoon! I loved scent, totally a me one. I like taking a piece and rubbing it over my body as well, the formula felt silky smooth. The oils used in this product included lavender and chamomile, oh I certainly slept well after use.

Jimmy Choo Flash perfume sample*
I loved the scent of the new edition to Jimmy Choo's perfume range. I would love to try a larger size at soon point in the future. A white floral scent, I liked very much.

Viva La juicy perfume sample*
LOVE LOVE LOVE this scent, I never thought I would say this about a Juicy Couture product, they seem to be marketed at the teenage community. I highly recommend you try this out.

Jimmy Choo perfume sample*
I like this scent but preferred the version above Flash. This was more sweet, and not my personal choice.

Co-op Fair trade cotton pads 50 pads £1.50
These have been a pleasure to use, I find some cotton pads have sharp edges and can make my skin sore. These are so nice, smooth around the edges and soft on my skin. I have no irritations when using these, I have brought 4 back ups recently. I love these. I really want to try the ones all my USA friend rave about, Shu Uemura?? I think?? Have you tried them? Oh I would love to.

Oral-B 3D White toothpaste 75ml £3.49
This is the USA Crest 3D version for the UK, I felt really excited when I heard this and quickly purchased one. Well that's where the excitement ended, this did nothing for my teeth or whitening them. It was a real disappointment to very honest. A complete waste of money.

REN Vetiver v7 Hand & Body Cream sample*
I enjoyed this small trial sized tube. The scent was fresh, pleasant and absorbed easily into my skin. I have a few more to use up as well. I love the brand REN, I am happy to try anything from them as I have never been disappointed.

Korres Guava Little Shower gel sample
This has been sitting in my stash for months, to be very honest the scent had put me off using it. How wrong could I be!! I love the scent, I had this smell in my mind I thought it would be and it was not nothing like that. I liked the formula, it lathered up well and left my skin feeling good.

JASON Aloe Vera Body Wash sample
This was horrid, it did absolutely nothing for me at all, it did not wash me or leave my skin feeling nice. I had to check the instructions to ensure it was a body wash and not a toner! Also I did not care for the scent at all, it smelt like a washing up liquid.

SAI-SEI Mineral Deep Moisture Body Cream sample*
This was a teeny tiny sample and I used it to moisturise my arms one evening, it was lovely but hard to say anything in great detail and it was gone in 2 rubs.

Morrocanoil Conditioner part of a set
My holy grail hair brand, I love this and the shampoo so much. I am sad now as I am completely out of the conditioner and desperately need to purchase another.

Orchard View Petalicious Silky Soap gift
When in the packaging I thought the soap has rose petals embedded in the soap, it turned out to be only in the outer packaging. The soap is super creamy and nourishing, my skin loves this. I love the scent as well, its like walking through a rose garden.

Dior Foundation Sample*
I did not get on well with this foundation. The shade was a good match but the lasting power was not enough for me and my skin type. I think this was the ever lasting? Or similar??

Aveda Carribbean Therapy Body Cleanser  40ml £4.99
Another product I have had for a while, I had run out of body was that's why there are a few small ones in this post! I loved this one, it was thick in formula and smelt good. I remember really enjoying this, I was sad when it finished.

Dead Sea Aromatherapy Bath Salts 500ml £6.45
Oh this has been such a fab find. I have already started a new tub and have a back up. I think these are outstanding and all for only £6.45, I have stopped spending so much money at Lush since I found these little beauties. They smell just like roses, which I love.

Elie Saab Le Perfume 90ml £74.00
Can you hear my tears hitting the laptop? Oh I am soooooo sad this has all gone, seriously this is one of the most beautiful perfumes I have ever smelt, well after my beloved COCO Chanel.

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Cleansing Balm 100ml £34.00
This will probably shock some of you but my 11 year old son finished this off, I used to love this balm so much. Until I had a chat with a friend about the possibility of this causing my break outs. I stopped using this and my skin improved some. I had a couple of weeks break and tried to use it again and my skin broke out the very next day, I felt heart broken. I don't want to try to use this again, and I have back ups.

Armani Code Eau Perfume 20ml*
This was a pleasure using I don't usually use Armani fragrances and this was a nice change, it was quite a musky scent and lasted a long time on my skin. I had so many complements whilst using this.

Yes to Cucumbers Color Care Shampoo 500ml £3.99
I initially found this range whilst shopping in T K Max, it works wonders for me. I have one more to use up. It lathers up well and left my hair feeling soft and clean.

Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser Aloe Fresh 190ml £4.49
Although my hubby used this product I wanted to add this into my post as its a new product. My hubby loved this, I know most men don't like to use lots of products, so to get my hubby to moisture every day after his evening shower this is like a miracle!! I have brought him another already, I would advise those of you with boys in your life to give this a shot.

TRESemme Conditioner Luxurious Moisturiser 500ml £2.25
Another flukey find, I don't normally go for high street brands. I had picked this up one day as I was running low on my natural branded conditioner. Well I love it, and have stocked up with a few more now as they are on offer 1000ml for £2.25.

Burt's Bees Milk & Shea Butter Body Wash 350ml £2.20ish
I recently hauled this, it was only £2.20ish from debenhams. I thought this was OK, but not great. It was soooo runny and hard to wash with. The scent was OK but could lean towards being sickly if too much is used. It should of been nearly £10.00, I would not pay that for sure.

REN Clarifying Tonning Lotion 150ml £18.00
So I am sure you have all heard about the double tone by now? If not where have you been? So 3-4 times per week I complete my double cleanse as usual, then apply my clarifying toner and finish with a moisturising toner. This was the purpose of this toner, I loved it, the difference in my skin has been amazing. I have received complements from various beauty counter ladies whilst trying new make up on. They said my skin looked and felt so smooth and even. Well its all down to this little beauty, thanks REN.

Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel 100ml GWP
This was a nice change to my cleansing balms, my skin felt fresh nd very clean. I don't really have much more to say about this.

Ooh la la naked coco de mer body wash 250ml £4.50ish
This is one of the nicest body washes I have ever used, and its all natural. Extra bonus, not only did this work wonders on my skin, it smelt yummy as well.

Lancome Bi-Facil 125ml*
A beauty blogger and make up artist cult product and I can see why. This will remove your make up in one swipe. There is no need for rubbing, also I realised I did not get that dreaded oily eye feeling after use. I liked using this a lot.

Lush Glogg Shower Gel 100g part of a set
I had this left over from last Christmas time, a spicy scent that really I should of used up around the festive period! It was nice but has SLS so I wont be purchasing again.

N05 Chanel Gel Moussant 200ml £33.00 gift
A dear friend brought me this last year, I had been rationing this out and feel great that it lasted as long as it did. I could smell this for hours after each use on my skin.

And breath, what a long one that was. Each month seems to be getting longer and longer, but still no make up. Well not full sized anyway. Thanks for reading, its nearly my 6 month birthday!! I cannot believe Daisyrosebeauty has been going that long, I still cannot believe anyone would want to read the thought I have, so thank you I truly appreciate each nd very one of you.

  1. Shame you didn't like Jimmy Choo Flash, I have the full size bottle and love it. But I do love overly sickly sweet scents! Great post too.
