~ February Empties! ~

Well wasn't that a short month?! I can't believe February is already over. I had forgotten
there was only 28 days this month! I had a questionable looking freakle removed from my
stomach on Friday, so needless to say I am more than happy to let this month go and move on!

I feel like I got through a lot of products this month. Probably more than I ever have,
so I am exciting to bin all of this stuff and start fresh for March and maybe pick up a few
newbies to reward my efforts. Cos that's just what I need.... more stuff!
It's a vicious cycle and a hard core addiction. No, I don't need help.

Full Size!

Garnier Anti-Ageing Brightening Toner
I have always had good experiences with Garnier products and I loved this one too.
Tightened my pores and removed excess makeup like a pro!

Garnier Fructis Anti-Frizz Smoothing Serum
This reminds me of my L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil as the formula is the same and they
both work brillantly. This is just a slightly more affordable option. I recommend it.
Review! (Buy!)

Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo
I liked this, as always it makes my hair feel nice and soft, smooth and moisturised.
I prefer a prettier packaged and more interesting smelling product when it comes
to shampoo though.
Review! (Buy!)

Pantene Pro-V All Day Smooth Light Weight Creme
This product detangles your hair. I didn't really need it, but it was light weight
and made my hair smell nice inbetween washes. (Buy!)

Pure Zone Foot Therapy Exfoliating Foot Scrub
This had a nice and light Tea Tree and Eucalyptus scent to it which was refreshing.
However the 'scrub' was pretty much non exsistent and didn't do a whole lot of scrubbing.

Vaseline Intensive Care Hand & Nail Lotion
My nails tend to split and get quite soft it I don't use some kind of nail hardening
product. This made them much stronger and my skin felt nourished when I used this.

Dove Nourishing Oil Care Nutri-Oil Serum
Much the same as the Garnier Fructis & L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil, this hair serum
combats frizz and makes hair appear shiny and sleek without weighing it down or making
it greasy. Really enjoyed this one as well. (Buy!)

Nailene Clear Top Coat
This was a great clear top coat. Nothing negative to say. Did the job so I would
happily re-purchase. (Buy!)

NP Set Black Mascara
Handy, easy to use mascara. A nice dark black shade with a fuss free wand which
coated my lashes with easy without clumping or drying out. Have used this to death! (Buy!)

Mitchum Pure Fresh Clinical Deodorant
Brilliant deodorant! This reminds me of my all time fav, the Rexona Clinical.
Both give 48hr protection and actually live up to their claims. Worth the exxey price tag!
Review! (Buy!)

Sample Tubes/Bottles!

Goldwell Kerasilk Shampoo & Conditioner
I often get bored using the same shampoo & conditioner every single time I wash my hair,
so I tend to use something different for each wash. This was a nice change and happy to get
rid of a few more sample bottles. This was nice and I would happily purchase full size. 

Joico K-Pak Revitaluxe Treatment
Very luxe to use and I really did notice a difference in my hair straight away after
blow drying. A real hair treat! (Buy!)

Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner
I enjoyed using this along with the shampoo bottle, however I am looking forward to moving
on to another brand for a while.
Review! (Buy!)

Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light Conditioner
Nice, would purchase full size once I run out of the 123,758493 other bottles
of conditioner I currently own. Sheesh! (Buy!)

Nivea Men Clear Effect Gel Moisturiser
Stole this one off hubby who wasn't into using it. The scent was really strong
and manly, but I didn't mind it and the gel texture was fun. It did make my skin
feel a little tight afterwards so I found myself applying a facial moisturiser over the top.

MOR Body Butter in 'Lychee Flower'
Super stong scent, but oh so gorgeous! Beautiful body butter. Want MOR!

Sample Sachets!

WEN Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner
This was my first time using any kind of product from WEN. I received this in a recent
Bellabox and was looking forward to trying it as I've heard rave reviews about it and it is
quite expensive to buy full size. However I couldn't really get into it. It didn't lather which I
perfer when washing my hair. I'm just not into shampoo & conditioners combined.

Ayana Organics Baby Butter
This was a nice and very thick cream. Smelt lovely too.

Maybelline Better Skin Foundation
Already had this full size, but received this in a previous Bellabox.
Love it and use it regularly!
Review! (Buy!)

Natio Renew Line & Wrinkle Day Cream SPF 15
Loved this! I'm not sure how much it did for my lines and wrinkles as it is hard to tell
with a small sachet, however it smelt divine and I enjoyed using it. (Buy!)

Avon Advance Techniques Moroccan Argan Oil
Felt oily in my hands but didn't make my hair oily. I liked this and is the same
as any other hair oil already mentioned in this empties post.

Avon Advance Techniques Daily Shine Conditioner
Had to use this with more conditioner from another bottle as the sachet just didn't
contain enough for one hair wash. But seemed nice enough.

Avon ANEW Vitale Night Cream
I love using night creams, so this was a nice different one to try for a little
change. Would have to use long term to see results though.

Sanctum Hydrating Gel Mask
Use many facial masks this month. Or so it felt! I have been getting into the habit
of lathering one on and then bathing the kids whilst it sits there and dries.
I received this in one of my Beauty Native Boxes which I highly recommend
checking out for some more lovely products like this!

Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream
Received a few of these samples in one of my Violet Boxes and am really
enjoying the brand.

Eslor Chlorophyll Lifting Mask
Another nice mask which made me feel nice and pampered.
My skin felt so smooth and fresh after this one!

Eslor Botanical Peeling Gel
This gel is actually an exfoliant which I found quite interesting.
I don't think I've ever used a gel the same as this one. An interesting product. 
Again, hard to tell how beneficial it was though with just one sample.

Sukin Purifying Facial Masque
This one was probably my favourite. Sukin is one of my all time fav skin care
brands to date and their masques are worth a try!
Review! (Buy!)

Zk'in Certified Organic Line Smoothing Serum
I have been hearing a lot about this brand lately and was happy to receive a few samples
in my recent Bellabox. This serum was really nice and I am looking forward to using the
second one up!
