Empties: February 2024

Nails Inc Nail Kale Nail Bright | I don't know if this did anything for strengthening or enhancing my nails. It was a shimmer wash over the nails but not something I would repurchase.
Glisten and Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat | I think this did make my polish look smoother on my nails and would purchase a similar product if not this one.
L'Occitane Sparkling Leaves Hand Cream | I got this free with purchase, it was a very lightly moisturising hand cream with a slightly citrus scent. Not one I would purchase.
L'Occitane Amande Hand Cream | Again this was free with purchase, this is a lightly moisturising hand cream with an almond scent. I would repurchase this if I didn't have two 150ml tubes already. Its a good one for daytime as sinks in quickly.

Superdrug Cherry Almond Conditioner | A very light conditioner, smells like Alpro Cherry yoghurt, and would repurchase.
CurlSmith Double Cream Deep Quencher Conditioner | A very heavy, intense conditioner which I liked for after clarifying. The scent is very strong and does linger in your hair. If this came in a different type of bottle and wasn't so expensive I might consider purchasing the full one.
Lush Veganese Conditioner | I have used this before but it came in a bottle rather than a tub. I don't like tubs for something like this as it gets water in from the shower. The scent was lemon and it is a light conditioner. I'd not repurchase this.

Above and Beyond Refillable Lip Balm Vanilla | I like the idea of this as I do get though lip balm. It was a nice formula and I will repurchase refills once I've used up what I have.
Jelly Belly Very Cherry Lip Balm | Scent of this was cherry, the formula was good too and I used it up. Would repurchase.
Heart's Love Japanese Doll Lip Balm | As cute as these lip balms are the formula is bad, it tastes like Vaseline and the formula feels like it too. Not a repurchase.
Impulse Tropical Beach and Espresso Spray | This was okay had a good spray to it, but not my favourite scent or one I would repurchase.
Luxenoa Santala Candle | For a small candle this had a good scent throw to it, very much a typical masculine aftershave scent to it.

Review: Wild - Refillable Natural Deodorant

Bought myself some refillable deodorant to try out, I have a 20% off code if you want to give it a go as well (here). Wanted to do a review because I couldn't find many online when I was looking it up. I've been using Wild Natural Deodorant for a year now.

I got the scents
Mint Fresh
Orange Zest
Bergamot Rituals

All three scents smell quite like essential oils, I couldn't smell anything specific from all three of them especially when wearing them.

I have been wanting to incorporate more reusable items in to my life, less single use plastics and products in general. The process started in 2007, so definitely a journey!

Wild is a 100% natural deodorant, vegan and cruelty free, paraben and aluminium free.

The idea is you have a case which comes in different colours and then you buy refills once you've used it up. The refills themselves come in cardboard which can be recycled.

Wild is more of a soft bar type of deodorant, similar to dry deodorant sticks.

Does it work?
I have found that using this deodorant is very similar to my old Sure Aquastick, of the scents I have used I couldn't smell any of them on me once applied. However I also don't smell, I've used this product for a year and throughout the four seasons I found it worked well. 

What about staining?
Apparently it is the aluminium that stains lighter clothes so this doesn't do that, but I don't wear light colours so can't comment on it staining white.

What about white marks?
I only wear black and so can comment on this one! I have found doing two swipes on each armpit is enough so I don't smell but it also as far as I have noticed left any white marks on my clothes.

Would I recommend it?
If you are used to the format of a dry stick rather than a traditional roll on then the switch to this is very easy. They keep bringing new scents out too to try something different. I have recommended it to friends, I think it's an easy swap to something more environmentally friendly.
