Empties: January 2022

Very surprised at how many things I'd used up this month;

All of these Models Own polishes had gone really thin and streaky, strange as usually polishes go too thick.
Chrome Green - Swatch // Chrome Blue - Swatch // Chrome Indigo - Swatch // Chrome Cerise - Swatch
Chrome Gold - Swatch // Chrome Mauve - Swatch // Chrome Silver - Swatch // Chrome Rose - Swatch

Glisten and Glow Top Coat | This has been my go to topcoat for many years now, dries polish really quickly and doesn't smudge nail art. I haven't repurchased this as I want to try something new [review].
L'Occitane Delicate Shea | Has a light scent but not something I liked, the formula was nice and suck in quickly.
L'Occitane A Winter Walk | A minty scent but not in a good way. Same formula as above.
Jojoba DIY Cuticle Oil | Jojoba oil is good for cuticle oil as it easily sinks in to our skin, I think it is very similar in structure to our own natural oils.

Superdrug Cherry and Almond Conditioner | A very light conditioner, something to reach for when my hair is overly moisturised but still want to use conditioner. It smells like Alpro Cherry yoghurt, and would repurchase.
Lush Blackberry Bath Bomb | Fruity and purple coloured, I think I've used this in the past but it wasn't my favourite so won't repurchase.
XHC Argan Oil Conditioner | Almost the polar opposite to the Superdrug one, quite an intense conditioner. While I liked it its too moisturising for an everyday conditioner.
Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Butter | A heavy duty thick body moisturiser, the scent on this is strongly of lime. I would repurchase this.

ELF Mineral Lipstick Royal Red | I haven't been wearing lipstick much, I think this one had gone out of date.
Lip Smackers Orange Fanta | Wish the packaging held up better on these, the formula is nice and does what you'd expect a lipbalm to do. I would buy again.
Mad Beauty Strawberry | Very slippy formula, almost like a thin Vaseline and plastic scented. Did not like this.
Swizzles Drumstick | The formula on this was similar to the Mad Beauty one, this was slightly better as it was vanilla scented but wouldn't repurchase.
The Perfume People Lord Miserable | A good scent dupe for Lush Lord of Misrule, would buy this spray again.

Aromafume Incense Bricks | Not used incense bricks before but it wasn't complicated, Benzoin, Frankincense and Copal were all very strongly scented. All quite spicy.
Yankee Glittering Star Votive | Poor scent throw, wouldn't repurchase.
Yankee Christmas Eve Cocoa Votive | Again poor scent throw.
Yankee Candlelit Cabin Melt | Both of these had a strong scent throw, the scent was similar to a typical male fragrance. Not a scent I'd choose myself.
Teddy and Eva Chocolate Orange Melt | Good scent throw, scent accurate to the name. I didn't find it lasted too long so wouldn't repurchase.

Yankee Clean Cotton Large Jar | This had a good scent throw, however clean cotton isn't a scent I'd purchase again.
Yankee Tree Farm Festival | A pine scent that doesn't smell of toilet cleaner! Barely any scent throw to this so not one I'd purchase.
Yankee Black Cherry | I like the scent of this, deep cherry. The little candle though didn't have much of a scent whilst burning.
