Empties Vol. 2 + Mini reviews

 

 

Here is my recent empties in one post. I have linked some of the products to their full review.

 

  1. Dove Purely Pampering Almond cream and hibiscus body lotion: I really liked this body lotion and I have already bought another variant from this range- Invigorating ritual body lotion. Almond cream and hibiscus variant is so good for dry skin. It is super emollient and spreads easily. The skin is instantly moisturized and a small quantity goes a long way. This is perfect for winters and dry skinned people should buy this without hesitation. I will definitely repurchase this once my current one gets over (Price 395 for 400 ml).

 

2. Lakme Absolute Makeup remover: I have been using Maybelline makeup remover since forever and switched to this one recently. The packaging is spray packaging and does its job decently. Now I keep switching between this and Maybelline (Price: Rs 275 for 60 ml).

 

3. Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion Lavender & Neroli SPF 25: This is my Holy Grail for summers and humid months. For winters this will feel a tad dry but this is amazing and perfect for summers for dry skin beauties. Read the full review HERE.

 

4. The Body Shop Strawberry Body Puree:  I got this as part of gift set and honestly I couldn’t wait to finish it up. I didn’t like it and kept it in my bag as hand cream. This is a bit sticky for my liking and I am not a fan of the fragrance. The shower gel of this range, on the other hand, is amazing.

 

5. Forest Essentials Night Treatment Cream Sandalwood & SaffronI LOVE this night cream and I cannot say it enough. This variant is for dry skin and I am going to repurchase this when my current night cream gets over. Read the full review HERE.

 

6. Forest Essentials Aloe Vera Juice: I got this on the insistence of SA mainly to mix with serums and ubtans. This was an okay product, easily dupable and nothing extraordinary. Will not repurchase (Price: Rs 550 for 100 ml).

 

7. Colorbar Black Fiesta nail polish: You know that I have a thing for nail arts and this nailpolish started the graffiti nail polish trend in India. Unfortunately, this range is now discontinued so I had to quickly grab one wherever I could find. It is now unavailable on Colorbar counters so I bought from Amazon. Read full review HERE.

 

8. Forest Essentials Kashmiri Saffron and Neem Delicate Facial Cleanser: : I loved this face wash and honestly it took me forever to finish this one bottle. I will definitely repurchase this but not just yet as I want to try other cleansers before I go back to this one. Read full review HERE

 

9. Sally Hansen Extra Strength Nail polish Remover: This is a fairly big bottle for its price and Sally Hansen is a well known brand so I picked this bottle from Westside when I saw this. However, I did not like this as it takes too much time in removing nailpolish. Will not repurchase. (Price: Rs 275 for 236.5 ml)

 

10. The Body Shop Moringa Softening Body MilkThis is another product meant for summers. I did not like this body lotion as it was not moisturizing enough for my dry skin. Plus I am not fan of spray packaging for body lotions. Read my full review HERE.

Empties Vol. 1

 

 

 

Empties Vol.1

 

1. The Body Shop Banana shampoo: To be honest, I was quite relieved when this bottle got over. I HATED this shampoo. Even though it smelt nice, is parabens free, has the goodness of bananas etc etc, this shampoo led to massive hairfall, especially while washing. I still have the conditioner from the same range and that is not as bad as the shampoo, but I would still skip repurchasing it.

2. Maybelline Colorshow Glitter Mania Pink Champagne nailpolish: I love glitter nailpolish and Maybelline launched Glitter Mania  range a few years back. Pink Champagne is a beautiful rose pink glitter polish. You can check the swatch in THIS post.

3. Yardley Red Roses talcum powder: I love Yardley talc and I always keep repurchasing in different variants. This one smell beautifully of red roses and you should try it if you love the fragrance of rose.

4. Forest Essentials Sweet Narangi lip balm: This is a repurchase and I will keep on repurchasing it till eternity (or till they discontinue the product) 😀 This is my fav lip balm which also helps in lightening of the lips. Read the full review HERE

5.  Marks & Spencer Magnolia Hand & Body lotion: I have used coconut and cocoa butter variant of the range before and I loved it. This one was okay and not that great on my dry skin. It didn’t provide deep nourishment and left the skin feeling dry after half an hour or so. I will skip repurchasing this variant.
