June empties

Jumping on the "empties" bandwagon as I think its such a great way to use up all my millions of lotions and potions I have kicking about in my toiletries basket.  Here goes..............

Farouk USA Biosilk Silk Therapy - I've had this stuff for longer than I care to mention and it smells absolutely divine......makes me wonder why I stopped using.  It tames frizz and makes my hair silky smooth. I'm actually thinking I might repurchase this once I've used all my other hair tamers.
Nip + Fab Pigmentation Fix - I bought this to try and help the fading process of my linea nigra {the dark line that runs down through your belly button as a result of pregnancy}.  I do believe this has helped a great deal and the line has pretty much gone now its just very faint.
Neal's Yard Mother Balm - I used this throughout my pregnancy to prevent stretchmarks {I went through 3 tubs of the stuff!} and I don't know if it was the cream or just good genes but I didn't get one stretchmark.  I continued to use it postnatally to keep my belly moisturised and I'm sure it helped bring the suppleness back too.
Bath & Bodyworks Twilight Woods Body Cream - I bought this in NY a year and a half ago and it is probably my favourite smelling moisturiser ever hence why I saved it for special occasions.  It has now run out and as we don't have Bath & Bodyworks in the UK I will probably never buy it again :-(

Palmers Cocoa Butter - Another product that I used throughout my pregnancy, this one I used on my boobs to prevent stretch marks and I've continued to use it whilst i'm still breast feeding.  It smells fab and is really moisturising.
Body Shop Dreams Unlimited Body Butter - The Body Shop moisturisers/body butters are my all time favourite, I have gone through so many different scents and I love them all.  My all time fave is the shea scent.
Nivea Pure & Natural Moisturiser - A really lovely day time moisturiser.  It suited my skin, I had no breakouts and my skin never felt dry.
Vanilla Candle Dunelm Mill - This smelt pleasant but was nothing fantastic and it didn't burn the wax around the outsides so a little disappointing to be honest.  I would love to be able to fill my house with Jo Malone and Diptyque candles but I just can't justify spending nearly £40 on a candle.  Maybe I'll treat myself to a travel one at Christmas or something.

Keep Smiling


  1. I know, it's such a shame we don't have bath and body works here, especially since they do lovely candles that can be pricey but are affordable when on sale. Good job using up so much stuff! I plan on trying to do this soon. xx

  2. I should absolutely try doing this because I have a million creams and potions hanging around. I am always on the lookout for the latest miracle cure ... It's so wasteful!

  3. Use this website - amazing for tracking down all those American goodies! Just seen they have Twilight Woods too...!

    ps I don't work for them haha
