Empties Post #2

I've finished a lot of products during the past few weeks and the pile beneath my bed is growing at a rapid pace, so I thought now would be a good time to show you a few things.

Toni & Guy Cleanse Shampoo and Nourish Conditioner for Fine Hair

These sleek white bottles were on a 3-for-2 special at the time, so I bought them together with the Sea Salt Spray (which is amazing). I struggled with the lids on these bottles, as they don't twist off, nor flip open. You have to break a seal (but also not all the way) and then give it a little push....and yes, it took a while to get used to. 

The scent of the two products is amazing, and I don't think anyone won't like it. The shampoo cleansed my hair beautifully without weighing it down or leaving it feeling stripped. The conditioner felt nourishing and the combination of products left my hair feeling soft, glossy, and bouncy.

Will I buy it again? Maybe... I'm a bit of a haircare floozy; these days I rarely stick to a single brand since there are so. many. things. to try! That being said, the shampoo and conditioner are really lovely and I think when there's another 3-for-2 special at Clicks I might buy it again. Next time, however, I'll rather get one shampoo and two conditioners, since I always run out of conditioner first!

The Body Shop Blueberry Body Scrub

When it comes to choosing between the blueberry and the raspberry range at The Body Shop, most people seem to go for the raspberry, but I personally love the blueberry one! I know it might not smell like proper fresh blueberries, but I don't care. It smells sweet and fruity and just plain amazing. You can read my review of this yummy body scrub here.

Would I buy it again? I already have!

Lush Dream Cream

This tub of Lush goodness is a thick pale yellow cream that you apply to your body and hands. In addition to moisturising, it soothes and calms red itchy skin due to the camomile, lavender, and oat milk.

Will I buy it again? At R185 for a 240g? No. It's a lovely product but there are other, just as nice products for far less.

The Body Shop Shea Lip Butter 

I am not the biggest fan of the scent of the Shea range, but I picked this up on a whim when it was on sale. I love the little The Body Shop lip butters and found this one particularly rich, thick, and moisturising.

Will I buy this again? Maybe... But considering I'm also a lip balm/lip butter floozy, maybe I won't be buying this too soon!

Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner

After reading about this on countless beauty blogs, I knew I had to try it. I've been using it in the evenings for months now, and can't see myself living without it. It also featured way back in my May favourites, which you can read here.

Will I buy it again? Yes! I'm already halfway through my second bottle...

Nivea Creme Coconut Shower Cream

Coconut has been making a serious comeback in the past year, and shows up in anything from cooking products to beauty products. This coconut scented shower cream came out at the start of winter and I really enjoyed using it. It's the typical white creamy Nivea scent, but instead of the lovely original "Iced zoo biscuit" smell, it smells like coconut. If you don't like coconut, you'll hate this. But if you like you go grab one or two bottles! This was also featured in my May favourites.

Would I buy it? If I didn't already have 20 shower gels to get through, then yes. I think the scent is more comforting in wintertime, but in summertime you can just pretend you're surrounded by coconut cocktails!

Please let me know in the comments section if you've enjoyed reading this, as I have a lot more empties to blog about!

Until next time!
