April Empties

I love reading other people’s empties posts, so I’d like to start doing them myself. The basic idea is to write about all the products that you’ve used up in the last month. I’m going to do two posts a month on empties, one on bath and body and one on make-up and hair.

There is nothing I love more than a relaxing bath. In fact my bath is the most expensive thing I’ve bought for my house! It’s huge with whirlpool jets and built-in lighting! It may seem extravagant but it’s my little piece of luxury where I can have a nice soak and read a book. Therefor I love buying products to use in the bath.

This month I have used up or nearly used up the following…

Dirty Works Products

Sainsbury’s Dirty Works Products – If you love the retro styling of retro styled products like soap and glory you’ll love the dirty works range. The products are a little cheaper ranging from about £2.99 to £4.99. I’ve used – All of a Lather Body Wash – Think of England Bath Soak – Buff You Stuff Body Scrub – Sole Sister foot Scrub – Best Foot Forward Foot Butter –

Bath Products

Body Washes – This month I’ve used – Rosebud and Blossom A Bowlful of Blossom Body Wash from Sainsbury’s – Radox Shower Smoothies Soul Soother – Flower Pharm Wild Rose Body Wash from Tesco – These all smell lovely I have the bubble bath to go with them too.

Soap and GlorySoap and Glory – Pulp Friction Body Scrub – This is by far the best body scrub I’ve tried in ages. I bought lot’s of Soap and Glory gift sets in the Boots safe after Christmas and this is the first thing I’ve finished.

Good Things

Good Things – Fresh Start Creamy Cleanser – I picked this up in Boots along with some other products from the range. It’s really gentle on the skin and is great for getting all my make-up off. I also really like the face scrub from this range.

Along Came Betty

Along Came Betty Pure Pores 10 Minute Detox Mask – I’ve mentioned this retro themed brand from Tesco before. I love the quality of these products and this mask is one that I will be buying again and again. It goes on like a thick cream with little balls in it. As you rub it in the balls dissolve and you leave it for ten minutes. My skin felt great after using this and you get quite a few applications in one pot.

Coconut Conditioner

Boots Coconut and Almond Leave-In-Conditioner – This products goes everywhere with me. Despite my plans for a cut I still have the very long hair and this is great for spraying on the end to stop them getting dry. I also give my hair a little all over spritz with this each morning. It’s great for keeping hair shiny and preventing frizz. I don’t use it on wet hair I just spray in on my dry hair.

Are there any bath and body products you’ve enjoyed this month?

    Dirty works are so great – and such a bargain – I am currently using their lip salve at work. x

      I’ll have to try it. I’m definitely going to pick up some more of their bits next time I’m in Sainsburys.

        It needs a lot of reapplication but use it for the lush smell as at work things can get pretty smelly!

        My empties pile is stacked and ready for a couple more before the end of the month!

    I enjoy reading empties posts. I’m actually collecting mine up at the moment to do a post.
