May Empties

It's that time of the month when all bloggers start blogging about all of that months/previous months empty products!

For me, this is my first empties post so I've been really excited to finally blog about it as I've pretty much filled up the box that I've dedicate to house my empties in.

So this is what I've used up all throughout May
From L-R

Allura 75 Cotton Pads
Poundland were selling two of these for £1 which is really good value for money. They are ideal, easy to use and I seem to go through quite a few of these. I think I use about 4 a day as I like to cleanse and tone day and night. I've already started on packet number two and these and will definitely be purchasing some more when I go to Poundland.

Creightons Sunshine Blonde Extra Moistursing Shampoo
I bought this from Poundland and I really enjoyed using it. It made my hair feel a ton better as well as look healthier despite it being as dead as a duck. If I see it again in Poundland, I may repurchase it!

Creightons Sunshine Blonde Intensive Care Conditioner
Yet another purchase from Poundland! This honestly helped my hair so much - it made it feel softer and nurished. The same with the shampoo, if I see it again then I may repurchase it.

Sure Crystal Anti-Perspirant in Clear Pure
I've had this ever since it came out which must have been a couple of years ago when it was at an introductory price of between £1 - £2.50 (I don't remember!) I've used it on and off and for May, I've been using it non-stop purely to use it all up! I didn't get on with this as it claims to not leave white marks when it actually did. I won't repurchase this as I have a drawer filled of deodrants to use.

Intu Style Dry Shampoo in Classic
I bought this from Poundland (Yay!) when my stash of Bastiste ran out. It smelt weirdly of candy watermelons which I didn't particularly like. But it did the trick! I wish I had bought more of it but luckily I didn't. If I see it in the future, I may stock up on it if it came in different scents.

Lush Bubble Bar - The Comforter*
This little bubble bar lasted me a whooping six baths which I'm so impressed with! It made a lot of bubbles and it smelt so devine. When I'm next in Lush, I may stock up on this as I adore it.

Lush Bubble Bar - Magic Wand*
I loved the whole concept of this - dip it into running water and it makes a mountain of bubbles. It lasted quite a while but then it fell off the stock which I was sad about :( If they bring this back at Christmas, I will no doubt be stocking up on it as it's just amazing.

Superdrug Tea Tree Cleansing Wipes
I honestly do not know why I bought these - I detested them, it smelt too strongly of tea tree and it made my skin sting. I can't remember the price of these and it's just as well as I hated them! It took forever to use up just 25 wipes, it's like they duplicated. I will never ever buy these nor go near them again.

Lacura Concealer Pen
I would love to say that I get these myself, but I don't. My dad stocks up on these for me whenever he goes to Aldi as they're just great for little blemishes here and there. As much as I would like to say that I'll repurchase them, I can't as I already have 5 more in back-up/storage. I think they're between £1.99 - £3.00 which is really good value for money.

Pure 3 in 1 Make-up Removal Wipes
These are always on offer in Poundland - buy two for a £1 which is a bargain! I loved using these, they left my skin feeling clean and fresh. I will definitely repurchase some more when I run out of face wipes. 

Australian Body Care Argan Cream with Vitamin E
This product is the best moisturiser I've used! It leaves my skin feeling moisturised and refreshed. It lasts quite a long time and is definitely good value for money! (£1 if you want to know!) I love it so much, I'm already onto my next one with 6 more in storage/back-up.
I think for my first empties post, I did quite well in using up quite a few products - despite it all being mainly skin care and hair care products.
