May Empties, 2012

Lately I've been enjoying watching people's 'empties' videos. I've been keeping the packaging of everything I've used this month to show you all. 

I just filmed this as a video but, for some unknown reason, it won't import to my laptop. After waiting a while I got impatient and here I am. Maybe next month my laptop will sort itself out in time.

This month I used two Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque 30mL sachets, as featured in my Hair Show post. The first sachet was left in my hair for 5 minutes and, to be honest, I was pretty disappointed as there's so much hype around these types of products. Given that I had a second sachet, I decided to give the masque another chance. Around midday on Saturday I washed my hair (didn't condition it). I then brushed it out and applied a whole sachet of the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque, with the intention of washing it out that afternoon. By about 6pm I decided I couldn't be bothered washing it out and left it in overnight. When I washed it out on Sunday my hair felt amazing once dry. It's been two days now and my hair still feels so soft. I bought another sachet to apply tomorrow. I don't have work and/or Tafe on Thursday so I'll be leaving it in overnight again.

This month I also used -
  • A shower cap - I didn't use this as much as throw it out. It's lost its elasticity and it's the biggest shower cap known to man.
  • Dove Pink deodorant - I really like this deodorant. It works well for me and I like knowing that my purchase could be helping the National Breast Cancer Foundation. As I mentioned in my Buy Pink and Be Breast Aware post, Dove has been a partner of the NBCF for 6 years and, in that time, have donated over $700 000 to the foundation
  • 100mL of DKNY's Be Delicious perfume - I absolutely love this perfume, it's one of my favourites. I accidentally replaced it with the eau de toilette, rather than the eau de parfum, so my new one doesn't have the staying power of the original.
  • Bioderma Crealine H20 - This product came in my May Lust Have It! box and I'm a big fan. A large size of this product should be arriving soon. Stay tuned.
  • Maybelline Baby Lips in Protecting Berry - This lip balm is the same Antioxidant Berry, just with different packaging. I love the berry lip balms by Maybelline.
  • Swissper Make Up Pads (pack of 60) - I use at least three of these pads a day. I tone my face twice a day, using at least two, and I will use another one or two to remove my make up. I like the cotton pads more than the squares, and will repurchase these for years to come.
  • LUSH Tea Tree Water - I bought this product in March (as featured in my first LUSH haul) so it's lasted me a while. I'm a big fan of this product.
  • Chanel Vitalumiere foundation 3.5mL sample in 20 Claire - I got this sample last weekend to test the Chanel colouring as I want to try their Perfection Lumiere foundation. Although the colour blended in quite well, I think it was too yellow for my skintone.
As far as repurchases go I have basically repurchased everything. As I said, I bought the wrong formula of the DNKY perfume but it'll do. I've also bought a 250g bottle of LUSH's Tea Tree Water as it's slightly better value and far more convenient.

I think that's everything I used up this month, ladies. I'd love to know what you used up! Also, have you used any of the products featured? What did you think? Comment below!

Stay tuned (will hopefully be up tomorrow) for my May Favourites!

Always look your best,

  1. Babylips I used too but it's not moisturising enough now with the colder weather. The dove pads are also great for nail polish removal :D
