I don’t think I’ve ever done an empties blog post before, mostly because I’m completely rubbish at finishing an entire product up and just end up with a bunch of half full lotions and potions hanging about the place. I actually ran completely out of shampoo the other week. That NEVER happens. I usually have at least 3 on the go at once so just goes to show I’ve been really good with using everything (some) up.
Anyway, enough of the rambling introduction! Here’s what I used up:
HERBAL ESSENCES TOUSLE ME SOFTLY SHAMPOO
I love Herbal Essences, I find that if I’m ever stuck choosing what shampoo to buy I tend to go for one of their variations. This on it Tousle Me Softly which is intended for wavy hair, mines pretty straight on the whole but I guess it does have a slight wave to it…maybe. I really loved this, it smells amazing and left my hair feeling super soft and easy to manage. I would probably buy this one again but as you have so much choice with Herbal Essences I do like to switch it up a bit.
SOAP & GLORY CLEAN GIRLS BODY WASH
I adore this scent, it reminds me a bit of Lacoste Touch of Pink which I loved back in college. It leaves a lovely lingering scent to the skin for a good while after. It is a beautiful pearlescent pink colour which feels lovely and creamy but lathers well and also makes for a good bubble bath. I will definitely buy this again.
VO5 GIVE ME MOISTURE SHAMPOO
First of all VO5 products tend to be on offer quite a lot in supermarkets and drugstores so they are well worth getting your hands on, if I remember correctly this huge bottle was only about £2 from Tesco. I really liked this shampoo, it smells like apples to me and does just what it says. My hair always looks shiny and hydrated after using this. It does build up on your hair a bit so a bit of a mix up once a week would probably keep that at bay.
ONE MOMENT BODY WASH
This came in a set when I bought One Directions perfume and it smells just like it. It’s not particularly moisturising or anything it just scents your skin with a lovely sweet, girly scent with a hint of citrus.
NIVEA STRESS PROTECT DEODORANT
Not the most glamorous of products but this studs seriously lasted ages. At least a few months. Smells quite fresh and possibly unisex. I suffer from quite bad anxiety so the fact it says it provides “extra protection in stressful situations” appealed to me and well, it works.
SOAP & GLORY SUGAR CRUSH BODY WASH
First of all I hated the smell of this and then it almost because nostalgic and then I loved it and now I don’t like it again. Not really sure why but it’s a sweet lime scent with a hint of almond to it. Incredibly moisturising and as with most S&G products the scent lingers on the skin so you can smell yummy for longer.
HERBAL ESSENCES HELLO HYDRATION CONDITIONER
I adore adore adore this scent, I’m not really one for strong coconut products but this is somehow softer and with something else added in there scent wise that makes it oh so amazing. It’s super hydrating and you hair is guaranteed to smell amazing after. This is a scent I have loved for a good 4 years now and is definitely a must try if you haven’t already.
Have you tried any of these? What did you think?
