Empties / April

Hope everyone is enjoying their bank holiday - time for me to do another empties post:
The Body Shop Earth Lovers Apricot & Basil 100% Biodegradable Shower Gel: nothing particularly exciting or pampering about this product - does the job well and I love the scent but the thickness was weird: too thin for a shower gel. Actually, I got this for free when I placed my order online so I can't really complaint but I don't think I would like to pay for it (you end up using too much product).
Repurchase: no
James Brown London Heat Styling Protector: hate it with a vengeance! 
Couldn't wait to finish this off - It makes your hair so sticky and it smells like aftershave. Actually, I didn't even manage to finish it because the spray hole is all clogged up but it's definitely time for the bin.
Repurchase: neverrrrrrr!
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse: One of best body oil - the scent is phenomenal, doesn't leave you greasy and I simply love it... just as much as the gold version, which I have the full size. 
Repurchase: absolutely!
Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser: I have tried a couple of the Clarisonic cleansers and this one is my favourite. The consistency is perfect for the brush action and leaves my skin clean and fresh.
Repurchase: probably yes
L'Occitane Eye Balm: what a lovely eye cream. This cream is part of the Immortelle line but hasn't got the overpowering flowery scent. The consistency is between a balm and a gel - thin enough for the eye area - and great hydrating properties. Also, the jar is made of glass: perfect to keep the product fresh and adding to the cooling action. 
Repurchase: why not
Rodial Glamtox Night: I have mixed feelings about this product: love the scent, the consistency but couldn't help thinking something was missing from my routine, when applying this cream. It's odd because my skin doesn't have particular needs and It does feel great on the skin but, I don't know, I felt it wasn't moisturizing at all!
Repurchase: no.


  1. I haven't been keen on the James Brown stuff either, smells far to blokeish for me xx

    1. totally agree, big disappointment :( x

  2. I agree about The Body Shop shower gels, was empty in no time! xxx

    1. What a shame, they should reformulate them. xxx

  3. An interesting selection, and so many products I've never tried! I haven't actually dabbled in Rodial at all but would like to try some of their new bee venom products, sooo pricey though!

    1. unfortunately, all I tried from Rodial so far haven't blown my mind... for the price I'm expecting more :( xx

  4. Love that NUXE Oil! Also agree about TBS shower gel, I thought it was way too thin and was disappointed that it didn't last long :( x
