February Empties

I really enjoyed saving up my January Empties and found it really interesting to see what I use up over the course of a month, so I thought I'd carry on for a couple of months and see how it goes. These are the products I've managed to use up in February!

Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner I was using this in place of my regular conditioner a couple of times a week, just to try and inject a bit of moisture into my hair. Since I bought this, however, I've discovered my beloved Tresemme Keratin Smooth Masque and the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque, so it's become a little redundant. It's still a lovely conditioner which smells gorgeous and leaves my hair feeling soft.
Repurchase? Possibly, if it's on offer.
L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream This was a magazine freebie last year and has been on my bathroom shelf for use after washing my hands. I really enjoyed using this as it smells lovely and fresh and moisturised my hands really well. It's a lovely indulgent treat.
Repurchase? Probably not unless it's on offer or I have a voucher.
Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo This is a staple for me unless I want to wash my hair every day. There's not much to say about it really, it does the job and smells like sunshine. I tend to stock up when it's on offer as I know I'll get through it.
Repurchase? Always!
Superdrug Dry Skin Relief Lotion Again, I just use this after showering to try to hydrate my legs. It seems to do the job and it smells like sambuca! It's cheap and cheerful and soaks into the skin nice and quickly.
Repurchase? Yes

The Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Butter I bought this in the January sales and I've been using it most days to hydrate my legs, especially after shaving. It smells amazing, like ginger beer, and I bought a back-up while it was still available. If The Body Shop re-release this Limited Edition next Christmas, I am THERE! As an aside, how cute is the little gingerbread man on the packaging!?
Repurchase? Limited Edition, but if it becomes available again then definitely!
Possibility Raspberry Pavlova Bubble Bath & Shower Gel I picked this up in Poundworld because it smells amazing, but I ended up barely using it as it wreaked havoc with my eczema. My boyfriend and the kids have used it up though!
Repurchase? Not a chance
Marshmallow Blends AppleJack Frost Sugar Scrub Cubes This is actually the last of my Marshmallow Blends stash, but I'm not allowing myself to place another order until I've used up a considerable amount more products! I love these cubes for a little bit of a stronger exfoliation, as they're a bit harsher than, say, the Caramel Cupcake Scrub was. They also smell delicious, like cinnamon and apples.
Repurchase? Yes, although maybe a different scent.
Gillette Satin Care Radiant Apricot Shave Gel One of life's essentials, this smells lovely and fruity and doesn't irritate my skin. It makes it easy to get a nice close shave and doesn't clog my razor up. I always repurchase either this or the purple berry one, they're often on offer in Boots or Superdrug so I tend to stock up when they are as I know I get through about a can a month.
Repurchase? Yes.
Yes! Nurse Protect Your Lovely Hands Hand Cream I loved this, it did a great job of moisturising my nasty chapped, dry hands and doesn't contain any nasties. It comes in gorgeous packaging and has lasted me the best part of two months, which I think is good going considering it's been in my desk drawer, getting used at least two or three times a day, often much more.
Repurchase? Yes.

So, that's what I've managed to polish off in February! Have you done an Empties post? Let me know in the comments, I love having a nosey!

    1. Thanks! I have such a love/hate relationship with LE products, I always end up loving them and then not being able to get hold of them again haha xo

  2. I also dropped Aussie products for Macadamia, it's the best range I've ever used! x

    1. I do love Macadamia but it's a shame as I've used Aussie for years and love their products too! xo
