Empties Post – 2


Hi dear readers,

Here comes my second empties post and it looks like this year went so fast for me and we are the end of this year almost.  You can check my first empties post here.


1.  Garnier Intensive 7 Days Body Lotion Normal Skin

     I have already shown the empty Garnier body lotion in my first empties post and you will mostly see this in future too as this is my staple body lotion and I just keep on buying its different variants.  As already mentioned, all the variants get absorbed very fast and leave my skin very well moisturized and my skin feels ok even if I skip it without moisturizing for one day and it is economical for the amount I use each day.

2.  Lumene Arctic Aqua 24H Deep Moisture Body Lotion

     This is from the Finnish brand Lumene and I liked this lotion too a lot as it had a subtle refreshing scent, felt light on the skin and absorbed very quickly.  But it is not as deep hydrating as the Garnier one and I will buy this is during summer or spring, it will make an excellent body lotion for those seasons.


3.  Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Hand & Nail Balm

     I liked this hand cream as it was moisturizing, got absorbed within few seconds of massage and kept my cuticles also in good condition.  I will try the other variants of this brand  as their packaging is lovely and they are good too except that they are costly and not available in Finland, will get it when I can get my hands on them. You can read the full review here.

4.  The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Shampoo

     This is my 3rd bottle and after I discovered this, there is no turning back, it does not dry my hair especially the scalp and it makes an excellent hair wash for the harsh Finnish winters.  This might not suit everyone but for me this is a must-have and this is one of the products that I keep repurchasing.  You can check the full review here.

5.  The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish

     I like the strawberry fragrance from TBS and got this to try out after reading many reviews,  I am sure there are many die hard fans for this product but for me I just felt it like another body wash and though it is a mild body polisher, I don’t think it really did anything for me.  You can read the full review here.

6.  Lotus Herbals Lip Therapy

     This is another repurchase and, this time, I got it in the vanilla variant.  I like Lotus hErbasl lip balms as they are very nourishing, heals chapped lips and comes at an affordable price.  They make excellent overnight lip balms and at the same time to be worn under the lipstick lip balms.  You can read the full review here on the cocoa variant.


7.  L’Oreal Paris HydraFresh Hydration + Antiox Active Supreme Emulsion

     This is a very lightweight day cream that absorbs instantly and provide hydration which will be enough if you have oily to normal skin.  Otherwise, as it has a high content of alcohol which you can smell so it will dry out your skin in the long run if you have sensitive skin or dry patches like me.  It was great for me during summers and as the weather turns slightly cold it started drying out my dry patches due to its alcohol content.  They have some natural good ingredients along with a list of chemicals so I will not buy this again as it did not provide any highly beneficial effect for the skin. You can read the full review here.

8.  L’Oreal Paris HydraFresh Hydration + Antiox Active Night Mask-In Jelly

     This is the product that I loved the most in the hydra fresh range that I tried and this also is very lightweight, absorbs instantly and make a good hydrating night cream for summers.  But at the same time due to its high alconhol content it dries out the skin when the weather turns slightly cold.  But the hrdyra fresh range will be loved by oily skin people due to its light weight texture.  You can read the full review here. Both of them lasted me for about 3-3.5 months when used once daily.

9.  The Nature’s Co Fullers Earth Face pack

     I have been using this face pack for more than 1 year, almost for 1.5 years as it lasted me that long when used once a week though sometimes I get lazy and used it once in two weeks.  But the pack is huge and it will last you for almost a year.  It is a very nice face pack, that does not dry out the skin due to the presence of glycerin, has a nice earthy smell and gives a subtle glow to the skin.  I have recommend it in my post here and you can complete review here.  But it dries out after 6 months or so due to the tub packaging, but it is not a big problem as I mix it with water or rose water and apply on the skin.  I got bored of it for using it for a long time so now trying out other face packs.

     Have you used any of the products above?  What are the products that you keep on repurchasing?

      This variant is not available in India I think. Yes, I usually try to finish up products before trying new ones so that I keep a check on myself on buying only the needed 🙂
