Product Empties - March 2013

A tad late in coming - but better late than never!

Face Products

Korres White Tea 3 in 1 Cleansing Water (click for blog post) - A cruelty free, ethically-minded alternative to the professional's favourite: Bioderma Crealine H20 micellar water.

bareMinerals Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover - this was given to me by the lovely Robyn as part of a big box of goodies, and i've quite enjoyed using it. I can't say it was a particularly stand out product, especially because I only had a little trial size bottle (I got maybe 2 weeks' worth of use out of it?), and it did leave traces of mascara behind, but it did the job - or at least helped with it!

NSpa Melting Cleansing Gel - one of my most recent product reviews (you can read all about it here) this is definitely more 'interesting' to use than your standard cleanser, and I would definitely think about buying it again.

Garnier tinted eye roll on - I take my hat off to this product, it certainly has gone the distance. I actually reviewed this on here in March 2011 believe it or not, and that's it only giving up the ghost now! Admittedly I haven't used it continously (i.e. every day), but even so, that isn't bad going.

Body Products

Superdrug Anti-perspirant Deodorant in Soft Pink - not the most exciting of items, but one of the most vital! As someone who is trying to become cruelty free, it's quite difficult to source bunny-friendly products; deodorant being one of them. Happily though, Superdrug own-brand products are BUAV approved.

Original Source Mint and Tea Tree Shower Gel - another BUAV approved product (hurrah), these shower gels are pretty darn amazing: smell delish (and come in a variety of 'flavours'), widely available (including in supermarkets) and are very often on special offer for around £1. The only downside is that they do contain foaming agents which can be a tad drying on the skin, but if you don't have particularly sensitive skin, buy these now and support a good cruelty-free brand!

Johnson's Baby Lotion - i'm not even going to mention it.

Johnson's Hand Cream - not much to say about this, other than it smelled nice and sunk in quite quickly - handy when at work and having to use keyboards frequently!

Primark Early Days Baby Wipes - I don't use these on my face, but you can't beat them for general, 'everyday' use (spillages, quick spot clean of makeup brushes and so on): paraben and alcohol free, and two generous packs for £1!

  1. Glad you got through the eye makeup remover! I'm not sold on it either to be honest...I think the fact that it has kiwi in it to soften lashes doesn't work for me (what with being allergic to kiwi and all!!) but I'm glad someone got use out of it :) It's a shame that it wasn't a new HG product for you though so i guess your search for a HG cruelty free eye makeup remover will go on?? Love that you won't even mention the Johnson's Body Lotion btw! That good was it?! Haha! xxx
