This is the first time – but I just have to do it; this month’s empties will be split into 4 instead of the usual 2, because of the amount of products is so much more than normal, and my backlog at work is so huge so I don’t have the time to sit down and write a post on 20 items at one go. So I’m splitting them into something more manageable basis, and hopefully I can get them all out in a week because I don’t want to be writing about August empties in October either! I know reading empties post after empties post can be quite boring, so please bear with me – I personally love empties posts!
It’s the first empties post of 2015! Oh boy, am I excited! Now that I’m on a beauty budget, I’ve been focusing on using up what I already have this month, rather than buying more new items. I always neglect the foil packs – even on holidays, I don’t bring them along though they would be more convenient as I like to carry little bottles of skincare that I know will work well on me, so this month I’ve been trying to dwindle my stash of sample foil packs down.
Here comes Part 2 of the massive November’s empties post! Some times I can’t believe how much I run through in a month. There’s a ton of products to run through so lets dive right in!
Hello! Welcome to Part 2 of going through my beauty trash in October! Writing about empties is actually pretty draining – because I do put in the time and energy to try to review as much as I can – that means trying to remember exactly what I felt about the product and then writing about it. A lot of times I don’t even remember because I wasn’t paying attention – and when it’s a tiny sample size, before you know it it’s used up and you have absolutely no clue what it did. Anyway, let’s get cracking on and see what I can remember about the rest of this October’s empties!
It’s Monday Masking time! Today we’re revisiting a mask that I’ve had for quite awhile – I’ve also reviewed this The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask a few months back here. I didn’t particularly liked it back then, and honestly, I’m still not feeling the love now. I don’t hate it and I still can’t stand the smell, but I will still use it up because while it isnt doing very much for my skin, it doesn’t do any harm either.
One thing though – this takes ages to use up. If it does something for your skin, then it’s really great value. I’ve used it dozens of times and it is still more than half full!
Have you tried this mask and what are your thoughts on this?
I love cocoa scents but pair that with a beauty/body product? You’ve got me hook, line and sinker. The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Cream Body Scrub is one such product – a pretty expensive product at SGD30.90 for a 200ml tub, given that it’s on and off the body in a blink, but one that still makes me a little panicky when I run out of it. I’m addicted.
Claims on website:
This exfoliating body scrub contains real cocoa butter. It leaves skin feeling soft and smooth. Stimulates skin micro-circulation. Leaves skin feeling super-soft. Sweet cocoa butter scent.
When an empties post become an EPIC post. This month I had a really good clear out of some of my sample size products, as well as some old products. I also bought a lot of Memeboxes lately, so I wanted to clean out some of the older stuff I have to make space for the new. I suspect the next few months’ posts will be littered with sample size products as I try to wind them down.
1. Nalthin Body Fit Patch x7sheets
I’ve been trying out a few slimming body patches – out of sheer curiosity and desperation to lose some weight… and now I have to report back that nothing but exercise and diet really works. It does heat up and make the area that it’s applied to really hot, but besides giving me a rash I don’t think it really did anything. I still have another 2 weeks worth that I will continue to use up.
