Empties #1 What I used up in April

"Empties" is another series of blog posts I like to read because you can find out about products which never made to a full review or didn't deserve a one. So I decided to join the "empties" club:)
It's so hard to remember to keep empty containers if you are not used to but I managed to used up a few products in the last few weeks and kept them to share with you my thoughts on them.
Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Nourishing Lotion with Mango Oil, 400ml, RRP £4.99 - I'm not very fussy when it comes to body moisturisers but they have to absorb fast, moisturise the skin well without leaving any greasy residue and these body lotions are exactly like that and also they are great value for money. I don't think they keep the skin feeling hydrated for 7 days as I need to use a body lotion every day after taking a shower but I agree that my skin is soft and nourished.
Will I repurchase? Definitely, some time in the future as right now I'm using Dove body lotion.

Sure Women Fragrance Collection Bright Anti - Perspirant Roll on, 50ml  , RRP £1.79 - I prefer using roll on deodorants and Sure is a brand I'm reaching for mostly as they protect me from any embarrassing odours or wet underarms and they are cheap! Just everyday essential I can relay on.
Will I repurchase it? Sure! I already did, just in a different version.

Dr. Nick Lowe Age Correct Eye Serum, 15ml, RRP £19 - "A lightweight, ultra moisturising eye serum boosted with a unique peptide complex to instantly firm, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and moisturise the delicate under eye area. Dr. Nick Lowe Anti Age Age Correct Eye Serum is also designed to help reduce the appearance of dark circles." I was using this serum for 3 months morning and evening and while I didn't notice a significant improvement with my dark circles it definitely hydrated my under eye skin and reduced the appearance of fine lines. It's a very light consistency cream that absorbs quickly and leaves the skin soft and smoothed. The only negative for me was the pump that dispenses too much product so you have to be very careful at pressing it. But in overall I really liked this serum and would recommend giving it a try if you have some fine lines you want to reduce.
Will I repurchase it? I might in the future. Right now I'm using another eye cream and I have one more waiting in a queue.
Benefit Moisturise Triple Performing Facial Emulsion Oil Free SPF15, 50ml, RRP £21.50 - I had only a 8.9ml sample that I received in a Limited Beauty Box ( review here) but it lasted me two weeks using it every morning. It's a lightweight oil-free lotion that leaves my skin super moisturised and soft. I was a bit afraid that it's going to make my oily skin even greasier but it wasn't the case! I liked it a lot and was sad when it finished.
Will I repurchase it? If it was cheaper I would definitely but as it's a bit too expensive for a day moisturiser I will not.

Pureology Colour Stylist Silk Bodifier Voluminizing Mousse For Colour - Treated Hair, 250ml, £14.95, at the moment £4.95 - I received a 65ml sample in one of Love Me Beauty boxes and it lasted me around 2 months so it's a great value for money. I liked this mousse a lot! I don't think it gave me too much of a volume but left my hair soft and easy to manage, it's not sticky and it smells lovely.
Will I repurchase it? As I found it quite cheap right now I will buy the full size.

Redken Color Extend Conditioner, 250ml, RRP £10.85 - I used up a 30ml sample which I received in latest Love Me Beauty box, it was too small to make an honest opinion but I used it twice and it didn't wow me. It has a strong powdery scent which I didn't like and didn't make my hair feeling any better than after using my regular hair colour protecting conditioner.  
Will I repurchase it? I will not be buying a full size of this conditioner.

Garnier Fresh Eye Make-up Remover, 125ml, RRP 3.45 - it's quite good at removing eye make up, doesn't sting the eyes but not any better than my Garnier Micellar Water which I'm using now to remove all my make up.
Will I repurchase it? No, as long as I use the micellar water I don't need any extra products to remove  eye make up.
Have you used any of these products? What did you used up recently?
Kind regards
