My February empties!






1)  Korres- POMEGRANATE
MOISTURISING CREAM-GEL
For oily to combination skin , 16ml

This was included in a sample set with other products in the pomegranate range. I really like this. It’s a light enough for combination skin like mine but it doesn’t dry out mu skin. It hasn’t spf  in it and I used it as a night cream or when I stayed at home all day!

2) Cocoa pink- Voluptuous body butter in Tihota type 2.75oz

I love this moisturizer! It’s not greasy but it sinks in fast. Perfect for winter and for dry legs!
The scent is light but it stays all day on my skin. It’s like a slightly toast vanilla.
It worked well with most of my perfumes too!

3) Bptp bath oil  decant 1oz- L'EAU DE L'ENGOUEMENT
I talked about it here



4) Apivita- Purifying Tonic Lotion for Oily/Combination Skin with propolis and citrus.

I love this lotion and I have already bought another one!

5) Flutterby beauty scrub in Lavender mint cupcake.
 Flutterby beauty was one of the companies that I was a regural customer in the past and I was so sad when she closed! I think this is the negative aspect to homemade products. Often the decide to close without notice…
This scent is lovely and I still have a little bit left from the perfume mist and the body oil.

6) Lathers and Lights Wicked Witch sugar scrub.
This is a spicy apple scent.
The scrub itself it’s moisturising without leaving an oily film to the skin.
It’s dense and scrubby. Very good!

7) Apivita- Anti-aging and energising shampoo with citrus and honey.
I liked this shampoo but I prefer others from their range. This one has SLS in it which I try to avoid as it is bad for the hair and I have noticed that I have healthier hair from the moment that I stopped using this ingredient.

8) Apivita tonic lotion with mastic and rose 1.7 oz
This one was a freebie with an order. I didn’t like it at all. It smell bad and it didn’t do anything to my skin.

9) RENE FURTERER- moisturising milk shampoo
This one was a sample too. I really like it. It felt so good in my hair but this also has SLS.
In addition to the "bad" ingredient it also has: safflower oil, carthamus oil, soybean oil, sweet orange oil etc So, maybe the SLS balances with all the beneficial ingredients. Who knows?


Here were my empties! Thanks for reading!

  1. I will never understand why companies feel the need to use SLS in their products. I guess I understand the parabens- to make it last longer- but especially if there are so many natural and benificial ingredients, I don't understand why they'd choose to use such a harsh chemical. My SLS and paraben free shampoos clean my hair just as good as the products with SLS. I guess I will just never understand some things! Especially the fact that LUSH uses such natural ingredients but there's SLS in their shampoo and conditioner. I gave my lush hair products to my mom because she doesn't have any restrictions in her hair care like I do. I have to be more careful with what I put in my hair as you know because of my anemia. I still need to get flax seed oil like you were talking about.

    I'm just curious, what kind of beauty people do you like to watch on YouTube? :)

    1. I think that they use sls because is a cheap and staple foaming agent. With coconut derived surfactants shampoos lather only in the second time that you wash your hair. Maybe is that but I don't really know. Definitely I can't understand what's the point in hair conditioners. You don't need it there!

      I get flax seed oil because I have a problem with my stomach too. I don't know if it helps with anemia. Maybe it does! You should ask someone who knows better!

      I really like Essie button on Youtube! She is so funny!

    2. I don't mind if my shampoo doesn't lather much... As long as my hair is clean, I'm good! And you're right, it doesn't make sense for SLS to be in conditioner! >.<

      Flax seeds have tons of benifits, so I'd like to try the oil just to see if it makes me feel any better. I like to try natural products to see if they can help me. Right now I just took Cocoa Well True Energy, which has cocoa powder, green tea extract, ashwaganda, Rhodiola rosea root extract, and a bunch of other stuff. I'm tired all the time and waking up is like torture for me... So I'm trying to find something that works.

      I'll have to check Essie button out! Thanks for letting me know. :D

    3. I didn't know it has so many benefits!
      Another natural product that had helped me a lot is a mastic powder that I used to take every night. I have to find this product again!

      I also take propolis. If you can find some, you just take 1 drop at the morning and that's it.

      You are feeling like that because of the anemia... Do you still take iron supplements? Because if you are low on iron nothing else works.

    4. It's supposed to be really good for your heart and regulate hormones. I just bought some last night at the health food store :)

      I never heard of mastic powder or propolis, but I will look into them! I do still take iron. I know it an take a long time for your system to absorb it and get better though. Maybe maybe that's why I'm still tired all the time.

    5. It took more than 3 months for me...
      I hope you will feel better soon!

  2. I love empties blog posts, and I always feel a ridiculous sense of accomplishment when I have a pile of my own empties, haha! :-D

    1. I feel the same with bath and body products but not with perfumes. I tend to stash them away when the reach the end of the bottle just to have a drop of them. I have to work on it!
