Recent Empty / Finished beauty products #1

Friday, 7 December 2012


I want to get back into the swing with documenting my empties. I am not sure if I ill make it a monthly thing, but just like my project samples series, as and when I have a decent amount of products to show you I will whack a post sharing my thoughts. These are a couple of things I have recently finished. 

I don't know anyone who hasn't used this hair treatment. Before I had my hair cut and all those awful split ends taken away I was using this deep treatment to try and restore my locks a bit. It has the generic Aussie scent which I do really like, it made my hair really soft after use, however I am trying to get a bit more savvy with my haircare and try and use paraben/Sulphate free products so I am on the hunt for a new deep conditioner that fits the bill. If you know of any do let me know. 

I got these in a package from KMI Brands when I won their blog of the month award. Great timing really, I am going down the more natural hair care route now, so they fit right in. I wasn't a massive fan of the shampoo scent (I really dislike cinnamon) but that aside, as a duo they worked really well on my hair in regards to colour protection. It did take some time getting used to the lack of lathering up the shampoo produced, but still without that, my hair felt really clean and conditioned after using the two together. I will definitely be picking some more of these up. I'm really intreged as to how the volumising mousse from the range holds up. That will be next on my list to try. 

In the past I have raved about this particular product and I have announced multiple times that I will always repurchase.... Not anymore. Unfortunately the brand had a be of a revamp and in the process seem to have changed the formula for the product. I dont feel that it works as well at removing my eye makeup as it did before. I'll be honest there were a few times where I was tempted to just chuck this bottle in the bin. But I stuck with it so I didnt waste any product. I wont be buying this again so I am now on the hunt for a new eye makeup remover! I have just bought a bottle of The Body Shop Camomile remover so we shall see how that goes! 

Victorias Secret Sexy Little things Nior Bath & Shower Cream. (no link but you may be able to get it in their new store in London?) 
I got this bath/shower cream at the beginning of the year when I made a quick stop in Dubai. It came in a set with the body lotion and body spritz and out of the 3 this is the only one I have finished so far! I'm terrible for buying sets and never finishing the products in them. I love love love the scent of this, so I am a bit sad that I wont be able to repurchase when I  finish everything up. I used it as a shower gel, it lathered well with one of those shower poofy things. (there's probably a proper name) and the scent lasted on my skin, especially on the days when I remembered to use the body lotion after showering too! :-) 

I am quite sad to have finished this perfume as I do love it a lot, and I feel it is quite a 'wintery' scent. Luckily I do have another bottle on standby to use which is one of those refillable ones too. (Although I have no idea what to do to refill - Am i being silly?)  I know this particular fragrance is a bit of a favourite amoung bloggers. It has a very distinctive scent, I was at a blogger meet up once and Faye from The Bohemian Collective just burst out with 'Someones wearing Alien perfume!' haha 

Much Love


  1. I really love that Aussie stuff. I do find its not really a long term solution but oh my god it leaves your hair feeling so so soft. If you find any other deep conditioner thats as good as it, do tell me because I'd like to know as well!! I do think my hairs ridiculously soft when I use Lush's pre-treatment of Marilyn but my hairs not blonde anymore so not sure about that, they have loads of others?!

    Also, I want the shower cream thing. Thanks to introducing something pretty to me that I can't have :p xx

  2. Great post, i love the naked shampoos and aussie products!

  3. I've just text you, but just in case anyone else needs to know, you can get the refills for the perfume in Debenhams (not sure if it's all debenhams or no though?) it's much cheaper than buying a new bottle too, which is good!

  4. You can get the Alien bottle refilled in Selfridges, I need to get a refill for mine but keep forgetting to take it with me. I used to love the Botanics eye make-up remover, I haven't tried the new version but don't think I'll be rushing out to get it anytime soon! x

  5. I was also tempted to throw the Boots Botanics eyemakeup remover away too but am nearly finished now (thankfully). It's such a weird oily formula and it burns my eyes sometimes too. :/ I love Aussie products, no matter what high end haircare I try (Bumble & Bumble are my top pick atm though) I always go back to this cheap favourite. :) x

  6. My Alien bottle is slowly running low :( Camp Hopsons and Debenhams refill it behind the counter for you :) you just pay a certain amount of money for a certain amount of ml's if that makes sense? I love the Aussie treatment, it smells lush and leaves my hair feeling SO smooth! xx
