February Empties

Up until the weekend just gone I thought this post would have just one product! Then a bath on saturday got me finishing up 4 products in one go! Strange how things run out like that isn't it? You will have seen from my earlier posts I am currently on a spending ban! As I am not allowed to buy any toiletries (unless I run out of EVERY item in that stash) I am going to be having fun rediscovering things that have gotten hidden at the back of the cupboards!



I never thought I would find something to replace the st ives apricot scrub (which I have been devoted to ever since my mom bought me some as a teenager) but I think I have! This fits in with my cheap skate philosophy of not spending more than a fiver on skincare (Its £4.69 and usually on 3 for 2) Its really scrubby (is that a word?) but even on my sensitive skin doesnt leave it red!

Would I Repurchase?
YES
But not at this current moment as I have another couple of scrubs to get through!  


Another teenage throw back! I remember my mom introducing me to Aussie Miracle when I was around 13 and for years it was the only haircare that I would use. Again it just creeps into my at £4.99 a bottle and usually one the 3 for £10 offer at boots. I have also occasionally spotted it in bargain shops for £1 and I really should have bought the whole shelf .... I digress. 

Would I Repurchase?
YES
But again not right now as I have quite a lot of hair masks to use up!


I am so glad that this is finished! I got this free with a magazine ages ago and the scent just wasnt good! As for it being super toning well I would never have believed that in the first place! I would never ever pay £9 for a body wash when there are fabulous ones out there for about a pound!

Would I Repurchase?
NO

Simple clear skin oil balancing facial scrub

I think they may have discontinued this one. I have had it a long while and its just pointless as a scrub as it doesn't feel scrubby in the slightest!

Would I Repurchase?
NO 




So this was another sample I got from either a birchbox or an event last year I can't honestly remember! It was really nice and I found that putting a few drops in my bath released a really nice uplifting scent! However it is rather pricey at £16.95 for 100ml.

Would I Repurchase?
Probably Not
Only because it's not in my budget though ... its a lovely oil! 



Another product I am glad to have finished! It smelt horribly, went tacky on my skin and just did nothing for my skin. For £19.95 a pot i definately would not repurchase this again!

So thats it for this month! Have you tried any of these products?
