Empties: December 2018

Only three polishes I have used up during the past month.

Barry M - Cuticle Oil - I like this, does what it is supposed to, I'm not too keen on how it solidifies in temperatures sub 15 degrees though. I would prefer a different scent but that is personal choice, I would repurchase this [full review].
 NYC - West Village 204B - Clearly a navy polish, I liked the colour but the formula wasn't the best so I wouldn't repurchase [swatch].
Belle Glamour - This was quite unique in my collection, a square glitter polish, which has now dried up. Don't think Belle Glamour Polish exists anymore [swatch].
OPI - This Cost Me A Mint - Really like the light mint green of this polish. I would repurchase if I didn't have numerous mint greens [swatch].
Superdrug - Acetone Free Remover - Basic remover but does the job without taking off any repairs made to the nail, usually I use a DIY acetone remover.

Essence - All About Matt! Powder - My go to pressed setting powder. It makes me matt for a good few hours and most importantly doesn't turn me orange unlike other so called transparent setting powders, I think it has now been discontinued.
So Sinful Lip Balm - I didn't find this lip balm to be very good, it also was heavily coconut scented which is something I don't like so not one I would chose to use.
John Frieda Foam Hair Dye - This is a different type of dye, it is a foam which makes it easier to apply. I also find I can use only one box of this dye whereas with standard dyes I need to use two.
Superdrug Vitamin E Day Cream - I found I could only use this under make up, as it just left me so shiny. I wouldn't repurchase this.

Avon - Red Berries Bubble Bath - As with all of the bubble baths from Avon I have used none of them actually have a scent either in the water or lingering on your skin. I wouldn't repurchase this although it did make bubbles and dye the water.
TRESemm√© Keratin Shampoo - I liked it but it isn't vegetarian so I won't be repurchasing it. It does however leave my hair smooth.
Cotton Wool Balls - I liked these, you got 300 in a bag too which lasted me a long time. Pretty sure they were from Superdrug, which if they are I will repurchase.
Pretty Candles and Melts - You Sexy Bean - This had so much potential, smelled so much like Lush's Sex Bomb in the pot but once melted there wasn't a scent throw to it. Disappointing.
