Monthly Empties: October 2023

L'Occitane Delicate Shea Hand Cream | This was whipped formula, it was a lightweight hand cream and sank in quickly. The scent was floral and did linger on my hands. While I liked the formula I didn't like the scent so wouldn't repurchase.
L'Occitane Herbae Hand Cream | A thicker cream than the previous one, it did sink in quickly and again the scent did linger. I have a few others in this scent so while I wouldn't repurchase I do have backups of this.
A Certain Becca Lacquer Candy Apple Cuticle Oil | The formula of her cuticle oils is really good, it sinks in quickly but also does a good job of moisturising cuticles. The scent was sweet apple and I would repurchase again if I didn't have backups.

Cantu Cleansing Shampoo | Basic shampoo not stripping, smells like pina colada, I would repurchase.
Baylis and Harding Sweet Mandarin and Grapefruit Shower Gel | Very much a citrus scented shower gel, uplifting type of scent. The scent wasn't something I enjoyed so wouldn't repurchase.
Only Curls Hydrating Curl Creme | This was very hydrating, it was a good curl cream but my hair doesn't need something as hydrating as this so wouldn't repurchase.

Lush Lord of Misrule Candle | The scent in the jar was very reminiscent of the Lush scent, however when it was lit it barely had a scent throw. I wouldn't repurchase this.
Wickford and Co Warm Vanilla | Similar to the candle this didn't have a scent throw and wouldn't repurchase.

Empties: September 2023

A England Camelot | This wasn't an opaque black and the brush was too skinny for me. I don't think this is available anymore but I wouldn't repurchase it [swatch].
Glisten and Glow Glitter Grabber | I didn't wear glitter because of removal (fixed with peel off base) and how it stuck up and caught in my hair. The glitter grabber puts a thick layer over the glitter leaving the glitter flat to the nail. I would and have repurchased a glitter grabber.
Ninja Polish Girly Floam | I found this had thickened up too much and while it probably could be revived I didn't like it enough to do it [swatch].
Sally Hansen Delphinium | This had separated really badly and I have plenty of other polishes the same light purple shade [swatch].

Jelly Belly Chocolate Glazed Doughnut Lipbalm | This was okay, the smell was quite artificial chocolate. I wouldn't repurchase it though.
Fussy Deodorant Lotus Biscuit | The deodorant kind of smelt like Lotus biscuits, cinnamon and spices. The deodorant aspect also worked fine for me. I would repurchase from Fussy but none of the current scents are interesting enough to me.

Empties: August 2023

During August I didn't finish many products at all;

Barry M Green Origin Base and Topcoat | I didn't think this worked too well as a topcoat over nail art. It is nice and shiny and I used it up on swatch sticks. If this was still available I wouldn't repurchase.
Wild Deodorant Cinnamon and Nutmeg | I like Wild deodorant, it works fine with my body. This scent is quite autumnal but not a personal preference so won't be repurchasing. 

Molton Brown Eucalyptus Shower Gel | The description of this is invigorating which would agree with, it is both minty and eucalyptus. It was okay but it isn't something I would purchase myself.
Garnier Ultimate Blends Pineapple Shampoo and Conditioner | The scent on this is very fruity and it does linger in my hair. I found the shampoo still lathered without SLS and the conditioner was light enough not to weigh down my hair afterwards while leaving hair soft. I will repurchase both of these at some point.

Empties: July 2023

During July I finally finished 250ml of hand cream, it took a very long time.

Soap and Glory Hand Food | I really liked the formula and scent of this, it is the traditional pink scent and it sinks in quickly. Having used 250ml I won't be repurchasing anytime soon as I want to change things up.
A Certain Becca Lacquer Cuticle Oil Maple Walnut | Again I like the formula of this, sinks in quickly and the scent does linger. This scent isn't one I would repurchase but I would other scents.

Lush Tarantula Shower Jelly | The scent on this was a morello cherry which was nice, I didn't really like the jelly aspect of it, very difficult to use so I wouldn't repurchase. If they brought this out in a liquid or a soap bar then I would purchase.
John Frieda Hair Dye Foam | I like the foam because one box goes a long way and covers my long hair. The dye does wash out of my hair after a couple of months but it also means there isn't a harsh demarcation line of roots. I will repurchase at some point.
Aussie SOS Repair Shot | This made my hair feel soft and tangle free, but it was silicone heavy which I try to avoid so wouldn't repurchase.

Beekman Goat Milk Lip Balm | This was a gift, doesn't have a strong scent and is moisturising and does what you would expect from a lip balm. I have others I prefer and so wouldn't repurchase.
Percy and Reed Volumising Mousse | I haven't used a lot of mousse before, this was okay and although it was a small bottle it lasted a long time. I didn't find it volumising and wouldn't repurchase.
Soap and Glory Righteous Butter | Soap and Glory body butter is my favourite, the formula is thick but does sink in and doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky. The scent of this is the traditional pink one the same as the hand lotion I was using this month. I have another in my collection to use up but will repurchase eventually.
