Empties: #1



These are a few products I've finished and collected over the last 3 months. 



1. Organic Care Nourish Conditioner
I've been using this conditioner for a year now mainly because it's so cheap. You can get it at Safeway and Priceline for around $3. But I continue to repurchase it because it smells like coconut and macadamia and makes my hair nice and soft. Its also environmentally friendly and doesn't contain harsh chemicals. I HIGHLY recommend checking it out. 

Repurchase: Definitely

2. Derma 3 in 1 Facial Wipes
This is exclusive to Coles. You can buy it for $2 for 25 wipes but they always have 3 for 2 sales. It's good value for an awesome product. I don't wear liquid foundation so I can say anything about that. I do however where a lot of eye makeup. It does a decent job, removing about 98%, however it doesn't remove waterproof mascara :( But other than that it gets the job done. It feels really fresh on the skin, the wipes don't dry out fast (if you store it well) and there is a slight scent but nothing too overwhelming. 

Repurchase: Potentially after I've tried other wipes

3. Sex in the City LOVE Perfume
I LOVE how inexpensive this perfume is. You can get it for $6-$9 depending where you go, Big-W, K-mart, Target etc. Scents are hard to describe but I will try my best. It's a very feminine and floral which I love. My one BIG problem with this perfume is its longevity. It literally last for around 20 minutes, when you first spray it smells lovely but then nothing it just disappears. 

Repurchase: NO

4. 1000 Hour Nail Foils in Pink Swirl
This was TERRIBLE. The application was very difficult, the end look was atrocious and the foils were way too big. My nails are small to average and because the foils were so large application was difficult which is an understatement (I needed my mum) and even after that it didn't help. It looked decent from afar but if you looked closely it was really messy and lumpy. It was just a bad experience overall. Lucky it came in my Priceline beauty bag so I didn't actually pay for it. 

Repurchase: NEVER

5. Smith Street Market Scented Body Wash - Musk Sticks
I received as a Christmas present. It came in a pack of 2, but because I preferred the other scent I used this up first. I've seen this brand in Target but I'm not entirely sure of the price range. It was a pretty average body wash it smells like my childhood medicine rather than musk sticks. It also didn't lather as much as I would've liked it to. But it lasted me a long time so overall it was okay.

Repurchase: No

6. Garnier Deodorant Invisi Mineral 48hr Max Protect
This is definitely not 48 hour protection, I would say a couple of hours at the most. I'm not a heavy sweater so this is a good product for me. It has a very musky scent which I don't mind and I have no problems with white marks. I wouldn't recommend spraying it in a confined space so make sure you have a door or window open. It has a lock feature which is great for travelling. You can purchase it in Coles, Safeway, Chemistware House, Priceline etc for $5-$6 but I always buy it when it's on sale for half price. 

Repurchase: Yes

7. Bioré 4-in-1 Self-Foaming Cleanser
I LOVE this stuff. It gets rid of all the dirt, it has lots of good ingredients like green tea and eucalyptus and the bottle lasts a long time (one pump is enough for your whole face). I wouldn't recommend it for people with sensitive skin because for the first month of using it there is a tingling sensation when you leave it on your skin for more that 30 seconds. But for me that tingling sensation means it's actually cleaning my skin. 

Repurchase: Definitely and have already 

8. Maybelline Define-A-Lash Waterproof Mascara - Very Black
I enjoyed this mascara but it isn't one of my favourites. It has a rubber wand, with small dispersed rubber bristles which is great for defining the lashes (as the name suggests) and it also gives a lot of length. But I prefer a mascara that defines, lengthens and gives volume. And because it fails to give any volume and hence why it isn't one of my top mascaras. The formula is quite wet so you have to be careful not to get it on your eyelid. The formula is one that makes your eyelashes feel stiff which I'd rather it didn't. 

Repurchase: No, but mainly because there are so many mascaras to try

9. Maybelline Baby Lips - Menthol 
I have already reviewed Maybelline's baby lips. My least favourite out of all of them is menthol hence why I finished it first. It's mainly the scent that bothers me, but I do like the tingling feeling. 

Repurchase: Not in menthol

First off the obvious how cute is the packaging? The colours are soooo cute and pretty. Love it!!!!!
I really like the baby lips, it's moisturising, goes on really smooth and looks glossy when you apply it. They smell okay (the menthol one smells like vicks) and I find them to be longer lasting than normal lip balms given your not eating or drinking (they last for about 1-2 hours). The menthol flavour has that tingling feeling which I enjoy but if you don…

Review: Dettol Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate

Today I'll be doing a review on a product concerning personal hygiene. We all know that in winter people are more susceptible to the flu and colds, especially if you haven't had a flu shot (like me...). So in order to lower chances of catching a cold, hand hygiene is vital. Because a lot of the time hands are doing all the work germs can spread very fast, therefore to prevent the spread of germs, soap is one of the easiest ways to ensure you're not spreading germs to family and friends. 

I had the opportunity to try a Dettol product new to the market. Dettol has a number of versions of their new hand washes so there will most likely be one for you. They include; Delight with Honey & Apricot, Replenish with Shea Butter & Rose Water and of course revitalise with Raspberry and Pomegranate. 

Dettol's Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate has the most beautiful fruity scent. Honestly is smells EXACTLY like raspberry and pomegranate, it is d…

Review: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Image: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Claims: "Extremely fast drying top coat. Protects your nail polish against chipping"

How long would you expect a "quick dry" top coat to dry, 60 seconds maybe 2 minutes? Well don't expect too much from this top coat. Every time I've used this top coat I've had problems with my nail polish smudging or sheet lines when I wake up. 

The top coat does dry fairly quickly however the nail polish remains soft and smudges if your not careful. I tried it a few times but the last time I tried it I left it for an hour and a half to fully set and without doing anything that would ruin the polish before going to sleep but when I woke up my nail polish had sheet marks. All I can say is disappointing. 

Yes it is a cheap product but from essence I expected a lot better. I've used a few essence products but this was the WORST. 

In terms of protection from chipping I don't believe it makes much of a different. My test for this was rimm…
