The Empties Challenge! February Edition

This month I've gone through a few products, though one or two of them are actually really old and I'm pretty sure they've gone off - so they're not technically empty...but I'm getting rid of them anway!

1: The Body Shop Shower Gel - Pink Grapefruit

This took FOREVER to get through. Not a bad thing though - if you want a long lasting, great smelling shower gel, this is the one. I do think they are a little overpriced, but when they're on offer they're worth spending that little bit extra on. In this case, I received mine as a gift so I was more than happy with this high quality shower gel. The scent is really noticable - in a good way. after using it it lingers lightly on the skin, leaving you smelling and feeling fresh. Overall a great, long lasting product!

2: L'Oreal Elvive Extroadinary Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

I bought this duo to help nourish my damaged, dry hair. However, the ends of my hair are dry and damaged, but the roots of my hair tend to be healthy and can get greasy easily.I loved these products, they smell nice, and made my hair feel lovely. The downside is my hair needed to be washed more often, because the oils in the shampoo and conditioner made my hair get a bit of a build up of oil. I would recommend this product to people with dry hair, not to anyone with combination, healthy or oily hair. A nice product, but it didn't work for me - I had to substitute in other shampoo and conditioners to control the buildup!
A good product, but not for me! 

3: Avon Naturals Body Whip - Vanilla / Honey

I've had these body whips for a long, long time. So long that they have now, unfortunately gone off. They're both about half used, and have separated. I did try mixing it back together, but they didn't smell right, so it was time for them to go!

That's all I have this month...not sure I'll have many empties for March as I have just opened new toiletries when these ran out...but there we go. I'll try to use something else up perhaps...
