Chloe’s March 2015 Empties.

C: oh hallo March! This year is going crazy quick, but atleast I am sticking with one of my resolutions and have been using up some of my crazy beauty/skincare stash ready for my house move. I think I would need about 10 boxes just to empty the bathroom/dressing table cupboards! So here is this months empties:


Sally Hansen Ultimate Shield Base & Top Coat – personally I wasn’t that keen on this. It made a good base coat and protected my nails well but I wouldn’t say it made my nail polishes last any longer. In fact this is still half full, and as I haven’t used it in so long it has gone gloopy and horrid.

Repurchase? No.

The Body Shop Moringa Shower Gel – I received a few of these for Crimbo from one of my work colleagues, and I was most excited about using this one as I had not tried anything from this range before but knew it was quite popular. Obviously the formula was as lovely as all Body Shop shower gels but I personally thought it smelt like my nan… soz.

Repurchase? Not this flavour, no.

Lush Eau Roma Water Toner Water – I bought this after trying the Tea Tree Water toner from Lush, thinking that this might be better for my sensitive skin. I really enjoyed using this, and found that it did calm down my skin beautifully, but did not help with my blemishes. So I now use this in the morning to calm down any redness, and the Tea Tree Water in the evening to combat spots. Perfect combo.

Repurchase? Yes.

Gilchrist & Soames Mineral Bath – I received this in a Birchbox, and was never that excited about using it. I left it in my over night bag and ended up using it several times whilst at my parents – we just have a shower at our apartment. It was a lovely formula, but once again the scent just wasn’t for me. I prefer sweet, vanilla-ry scents.

Repurchase? no.

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara – this was in the giant S&G box I got for Crimbo last year! Mental. I keep stuff for too long apparently. I really enjoyed using this, it took a lot of getting used too as the brush is quite big for my tiny squinty eyes, but once I got the hang of it I loved it. It really thickens lashes, is super black and lasts all day. It doesn’t quite trump my Benefit They’re Real Mascara but as a cheaper option this is perfect.

Repurchase? Yes, I would happily pick this up again.

So there we have my March empties! Have any of you guys tried any of these products before? What did you think of them? #twolittleowls
