Product EmptiesHi lovelies,

I have another empties post for you today as I seem to be going through products at an alarming rate. Perhaps it’s my subconscious telling me to use stuff up quicker so that I can buy more, but whatever it is I’ve had fun using up all these products. So without getting into too much of a ramble let’s get right into it.

As there are quite a few products I’ve tried to slim it down somewhat but if you’d like a more in-depth review on any of the below be sure to leave a comment and I’ll put something together.

Bath and body

Bath and Body

The Bathhouse Shop Vanilla Noir and Amber Body Wash

Pros:

  • Nice smell
  • Nice consistency

Cons:

  • At £13 it’s quite pricy
  • I hate the packaging as the bottle gets very sticky after a while

Would I buy again? I don’t hate this product but neither do I love it, so no.

Pros:

  • Nice texture

  • Good value for money

Cons:

Would I buy again? Maybe, I enjoyed using this product but it wasn’t hydrating enough for my skin.

Nina Ricci Nina Shower Gel (part of a set)

Pros:

  • Smells amazing
  • Good value for money
  • Nice consistency
  • Reminds me of my wedding day and of South Africa
