March empties

I don’t usually post twice in one day but I wanted to get this up before we got too far into April. March was a strange month for empties since I was away for most of it and I had decided to only take  with me sample sizes of products I had lurking in the cupboards so that I wouldn’t have to bring anything back and have more room for my shopping!

So here is some of what I got through…

Benefit Carmella perfume — I had three samples of this. It is incredibly sweet and although I did like it I wouldn’t want a full sized bottle.

Benefit refined finish facial polish — the exfoliating beads on this scrub are just perfect for feeling like you have exfoliated your face well without feeling too rough. I am not sure what the cost of a full sized bottle is but it is something I would consider repurchasing. 

Body Shop mango body butter — I have always been a fan of these body butters but stopped buying them after the company increased the prices! 

Mythic oil — this was only a magazine sample but a little goes a long way and I got a good number of uses out of this. Unfortunately, as with my shampoo and condition (not pictured) I don’t feel like I can review these properly since the water in Dubai made my hair feel like straw and wasn’t in the best condition for the weeks I was there. 

No 7 blissful body wash x2 — The scent was light and my skin didn’t feel dry after using it but it’s not special enough for me to go for full sized products.

Soap and Glory the daily smooth body butter — thinking back to it now I don’t really remember much about this product! At least I know it’s not worth going back for. 

Liz Earle botanical fragrance — I hated this when it was first applied but as it settled it was much more pleasant. I wouldn’t consider a full size bottle though.

Garnier Ambre Solair face protect cream SPF 30— very light and non-greasy, I already had problems with breakouts because of the water but gladly this didn’t add to my skin issues. 

Garnier Ambre Solair Golden Protect SPF 30 — I really didn’t like this sun protection purely because of the amount of shimmer it contains, I should have guessed from the bottle though! 

Jean Paul Gaultier perfume — I already own a full sized bottle of this and it was good to have something with me that I knew I liked and was long-lasting.
