May 2012 Empties


A picture of beauty products
This is my very first empties post! All of these empties were used up and collected throughout May! It took some effort, I'll tell ya! I've seen quite a few people do posts and YouTube videos on their empties and it really spurred me on and motivated me to get using products up myself, especially as I have an abundance of them!

So what did I use up?

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner
I have used Herbal Essences for years. It used to be my go-to brand for shampoo and conditioner. But I've noticed over the past few months that it isn't right for my hair anymore and I have moved on to other brands and products. The only problem is I still have a few bottles of the Hello Hydration range to use up! But I'm getting there!
Next Paradise Perfumed Shower Gel
I have actually had this for years, bought with the Paradise perfume in a set. And I decided I was sick of seeing it in my bathroom and it was time to use it up! And use it up I did!! It took an absolute age to finish but eventually, it was all gone!
Andrew Collinge Smooth & Shine Salon Conditioner
This is another product I've had in my bathroom for a couple of years now. I used to use it all the time but then I just kind of went off of it. So whilst collecting for my May empties I decided it was the perfect time to finish it up! 
Matrix Curl Life Shampoo
Yet again (are you noticing a trend yet?) another hair product I've had for a long, long time. So glad to be finally rid of this one as I hated the smell of it! 
L'oreal Dermo-Expertise Gentle Make-Up Remover
This has been my go-to make up remover for years now and one I always repurchase, although I am currently trying out Bioderma!!
Clairol Colourseal Conditioning Gloss
I have an abundance of these from the various times I have coloured my hair and I adore how they make my hair feel! A very quick and easy conditioning treatment.
Lush Ocean Salt Facial Scrub
I've had this laying around for a while and I didn't seem to want to finish it but I decided (and maybe this is cheating) to wash out the pot, add it to my empties and then save it for when I take pots back to Lush! 
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Rapid Clear Wipes
I adore these face wipes, in fact I think they are probably my favourite! They have an exfoliating texture to them and they really help get rid of all of my make up when I don't have any of my liquid make up removers to hand! I will definitely be repurchasing these! 
Aussie Take The Heat 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment Mask
I love Aussie. I love the smell. The way it makes my hair feel. I do conditioning treatments quite often and this is one of my favourites! 
Hand & Face Wipes Cherry Scented
These were actually from New Look and really small and dainty, perfect for your hand bag! I always like having hand wipes in my bag as well as hand sanitiser! 
Oribe Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Colour
I got a sample of the shampoo and one of the conditioner from Space NK when I made my very first Nars purchase. I was really excited to try these and they didn't disappoint! They made my hair feel amazing! Shame I can't afford the full size...

So that's it, my first empties post! Do you use any of the products I have listed here? Have you collected any empties to make your own post?

    1. It's worth it, because you use up products lying around! I enjoyed using every thing up and writing this post, so definitely do your own :) xo

  2. I'm also on a huge mission within my house to get rid of products, we have so many lying around it is untrue!

    I finished off a Sanctuary Body Scrub just the other day and I felt so much satisfaction haha :P

    1. It definitely didn't smell citrusy. I don't know how to explain it. It was a very unpleasant smell. Plastic kind of smell with a full old people scent to it :') xo

    1. I do, but it's a tub I've had for a couple of years so I didn't think it'd be overly safe to use still! xo
