In an effort to reduce the amount of products I have sitting on my shelf, I took it upon myself to start actively using up things. For me, not a New Year’s resolution, or a project pan/no buy, as forcing myself to those parameters was likely to fail. Just a shift in my thinking to realise that I have too many of certain items! And with that, I bring you a large first empties post for 2013. Hold onto your horses, kids.
Toni & Guy ‘Nourish’ Shampoo and Conditioner- Loved these, sometimes a little bit heavy on my hair, but nothing a good clarifying shampoo couldn’t fix. Also quite a strong smell that lingered, but didn’t personally bother me.
Sunsilk Expert Perfect Straight Detangling Mist- Very average, added a small amount of moisture to my hair, but most certainly did not work as a detangler.
T-Gel Daily Control 2 in 1 Dandruff Shampoo + Conditioner- still my go to for when I get a flaky, scratchy head.
Macadamia Deep Repair Masque- Smells amazing and works so well at adding moisture back to my hair. It is also not an overly thick mask, I have often used it in replacement of a conditioner when I need that little moisture kick.
Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel- I’ve mentioned how much a love this scent before. But in an effort to branch out and try new things, I used this up. But I have a little travel size for when I feel like I want to smell like candy.
Garnier Mineral InvisiMax Anti-Persperant (x2)- Another I have mentioned before, my favourite summer anti-persperant.
Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion- Felt great on my skin, absorbed quickly and even had a touch of menthol that has made it extra cooling during these hotter months.
Nivea Soft Intensive Moisturising Creme- This is probably by far my favourite that I have pulled from my stash. Super moisturising, and the scent I just love. This is likely to be the one I will repurchase when I finish all my body moisturisers off.
Neutrogena Face Wipes- Still awesome, but have been looking into other brands that are just as nice to my skin.
True Solutions All Day Moisture Broad Spectrum Tinted Cream- A nice tinted moisturiser, leaned a little dark on my pale skin, but was a great base for my foundation.
Guess (Unsure of specific name)- Was an impulse purchase. Nice, but very sweet.
Katy Perry Purr- Loved this as a night time scent. It is sweet, but with a little more depth.
Well, if you’re still with me, congrats! I hope I come to you with a just as fulfilling empties next month!
Did anyone else make the same aim to start using up what they had?
