Empty #13

It's time for another empty post. Because I have a whole bunch of products I used up to show you I will skip intro and just start talking about products. 

Balea San Francisco hand lotion
I’m a big fan of Balea’s hand lotions. They are light, sink into the skin fast and moisturize it. This one smelled like peaches.
Repurchase: Yes, but a different scent.

Essence Cookies&Cream hand cream
I adore Essence creams. They aren’t greasy, they sink into the skin fast and moisturize it. This one was even better because it smelled like cookies and everything that smells like sweets stoles my heart.
Repurchase: I would, but it was LE
Vitaskin hand and nail cream
This one was bought by my mother and she used most of it, but in winter I had problems with dry hands and I took it from her. :P This is very thick cream and it takes time before it sinks into the skin, but it’s perfect for moisturizing and nourishing the dry skin and the feeling of moisten hands stays for a long time.
Repurchase: Maybe, in winter.

Maybelline nail polish remover
It was an okay nail polish remover, it removed nail polish fast and it didn’t dry my skin.
Repurchase: Not sure.

Lee Stafford My Big Fat Healthy Hair conditioner
I had periods when I liked this conditioner and periods when I completely hated it. It wasn’t as thick as some other conditioners I tried (Dove ...) and I think it didn’t nourish my ends enough, plus why would you do a conditioner for volume, if you can’t put it on your scalp? Does anyone do that? I don’t, because my hair becomes greasier faster if I put conditioner on a whole length of my hair, not just on my ends.
Repurchase: No.

Dove Pure Pflege shampoo
At the beginning I was really fond of this shampoo. It seemed to me that it cleans my hair nicely and it doesn’t dry them out, but longer I was using it greasier my hair became. I don’t know what the hell happened, but when I used this shampoo my hair became greasy already on the next day. It was crazy. I used it up and said to myself I’ll never buy it again. But guess what? I did buy it. By mistake. I wanted to get a conditioner, but I grabbed a shampoo. Now I’m not sure if I should use it or give it away.
Repurchase: No.

Alverde Hair Oil
This is another hair product that I really liked at the beginning, but not so much later. I used it in a combination with Avon treatment and I had really nicely soft and smooth hair, but when I used up Avon’s treatment I was using Alverde oil alone for some time. I had the same routine as before. I used it on wet hair, but even one drop was too much, because my hair was greasy. In the end I just gave up, left some product in the packaging and threw it away.
Repurchase: No.

Balea Dusch-Bodymilk trockene haut
This product promises a lot and a lot of people seem to be enjoying in it, but it didn’t work for me. I actually find Dove shower gels more nourishing than this body milk. You can read about my whole experience with it here.
Repurchase: No.

Balea Dusch&Creme shower gel Mandarin
It was an okay shower gel, like all Balea gels are, although it wasn’t my favourite scent, it was too artificial to me.
Repurchase: No.

Axe Anarchy for Her
I received this shower gel as a gift in DM while buying Axe shower gels for my darling. Axe is some piece of a cake, you know. They released a shower gel for women, but all they did is changing the label on the packaging. To me this product smells exactly as the Anarchy gel for him. Not to mention it’s more liquidly. It didn't feel that bad on the skin, but it's not a nourishing product.
Repurchase: No.

Dove Silk Glow shower gel
I adore Dove shower gels. They are so creamy, they moisturize and nourish the skin, and they smell so good. These are definitely my favourite.
Repurchase: Always.

Yves Rocher Jardins de Monde Orange from Florida shower gel
I didn’t like this shower gel too much. Not because it would be a bad shower gel, because it isn’t, but the scent wasn’t my favourite. Yves Rocher shower gels have strong scent and this one didn’t buy me. In the end I was using it to wash my hands, because I wanted to finish it.
Repurchase: No.

This was a very gentle eye makeup remover that didn’t irritate my eyes and removed everything without rubbing. It wasn’t an oil based remover, so it didn’t leave a film. Although I liked it I won’t repurchase it, because I prefer Ombia two phased remover.
Repurchase: No.

This was an okay cream, once my skin got use to it. It was light and it sank into the skin fast. It worked okay as a base for makeup, but I probably won’t repurchase it, because I found a cream that works better for me (I’m talking about Mixa Anti-dryness cream).
Repurchase: No.

I was using this cream as a night cream and it worked great. Despite its light texture it moisturized my skin perfectly and in the morning it was soft, nourished and not itchy at all. It can be used as a day cream too, but I didn’t work for as a base for foundation.
Repurchase: Maybe.

Rexona Longlasting Protection Fresh
Although Shower Clean is my favourite, I combine it with the scent Fresh, because I don’t want to get bored of it too fast. I think I used three or four bottles of Rexona deodorants and my armpits still didn’t get use to them, meaning they still work amazing against bad smell and sweating.
Repurchase: Already did.

Britney Spears Cosmic Radiance perfume
I received this product as a gift. At the beginning I wasn’t too fond of it, although it smelled nicely, because it was too sweet, but soon it became my favourite scent. It begins with citrus and floral scents, as you can read on Internet (I’m bad in describing scents).
Repurchase: Maybe.

Catrice Vitamin lip treatment
This is the quickies used up lip product in my stash ever. I was using it on my lips during December and I finished it in one month. Yes, in one month. It was a nice smelling, moisturizing and non-sticky lipgloss.
Repurchase: Maybe.

Makeup Revolution Amazing Curl Ultra Black mascara
I wasn’t fond of this mascara, because it didn’t do anything special for my lashes. More here.
Repurchase: No.

Max Factor Excess Volume mascara
This mascara was something. Here wasn’t such a huge problem the volume as it was the wetness at the beginning and the fact that it stuck my lashes together. More here.
Repurchase: No.

Collistar Infinito mascara
I liked this mascara. It gave my lashes a volume, but it can’t beat Essence Lash Princess mascara. More here.
Repurchase: No.

Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Ultra-Volume mascara
This one should give lashes a volume, but for me this one was more of a mascara for natural look with no eyeliner. More here.
Repurchase: No.

Essence I Love Extreme mascara
My favourite mascara until I didn’t discover Lash Princess, which I prefer because it isn’t as wet as I Love Extreme and it defines lashes better. More here.
Repurchase: Maybe.

Essence Lash Princess mascara
My favourite mascara at the moment. I love the volume it gives to my lashes, it makes them longer and it doesn’t stick them together. It also doesn’t give me panda eyes, although here and there I find little black dots under my eyes.
Repurchase: Of course.

Essence The Lash Curler mascara
This one promises volume, nice curl and longevity, but does nothing from the list. More here.

Miyo Big Fat Smokey Eyes mascara
I liked this mascara a lot. Beside the fact that it gave volume to my lashes it also separated them nicely as no other mascara before. Well, unfortunately Miyo is available only in Nama in Ljubljana and I don’t have easy access to it. More about it here.
Repurchase: Maybe.

Essence Studio Nails Ultra Strong Nail Hardener
This is one of the best products Essence ever released. I use it as a base coat and my week nails were never as strong as they are now since I used this hardener.
Repurchase: Yes.

Seche Vite Dry Fast top coat
Favourite top coat of many and I liked it as well. It dries the manicure fast and I noticed that with this one my manicure last longer as if I use Essence Better than Gel Nails top coat. The only thing that bothers me is that it becomes thick too fast.
Repurchase: Already did.

S-he Stylezone glitter eyeliner
This is clear eyeliner with multicoloured glitter and I used it a lot by different looks. I bought this without any purpose and I’d never imagine this would be so useful to me. It’s definitely more appropriate for creative looks.
Repurchase: Already did.

Few nail polishes
I’m throwing away few polishes that are even used up or too thick and impossible to use. Crackle and glitter polishes dry so fast and even nail thinner can’t help them. These polishes are: Essence silver nail art polish, Vollare Nail Artistic purple polish, Joy golden glittery shade, Depend green crackle polish and Essence Nail Art white stamping polish.
Repurchase: No, none. 

Have you tried any of these products? Thank you for reading!

  1. Ne vem kakšen tip las imaš ampak meni tudi eni šamponi že naslednji dan zmastijo lasišče -.- Sicer imam hitro mastno lasišče, ampak zato ne uporabljam takih hranljivih šamponov, kar bi si včasih želela :)
    Kako ti je ta Balea losjon v primerjavi z Niveinimi In- Shower losjoni ? ..čeprav vem, da ti ta ni bil všeč ampak me vseeno zanima :P
    Si pa ogromno maskar stran vrgla :)

    1. Sicer se mi lasje mastijo, ampak ne tako hitro, če uporabim kak dober šampon. Npr. sedaj uporabljam Gliss Kur Diamond in lasje niso tako mastni niti drugi dan.
      Niveinega nisem preizkusila, ker koliko sem brala po hrvaških in srbskih blogih, je bil Balein dekletom bolj všeč.
      Nekatere sem porabila, tistih, ki pa zame ne delujejo, se mi pa itak ne zdi smiselno obdržati. :D

    2. Aha :) No jaz ostajam pri tistih za mastne lase in res samo tu in tam kakšnega drugega..Razen Tigi šampon za barvane lase mi trenutno zelo odgovarja :)
      Aja, pol bom pa enkrat Baleinega sprobala..ampak še mam tolk Niveinih za porabit :D
      To sem pa takoj sklepala :P

    3. Aja, ti imaš barvane lase. No, moji so naravni, tako da ne rabim teh posebnih šamponov. :)
      Veliko deklet je zadovoljnih z njim, tako da če ti Nivein odgovarja, ti bo tale verjetno tudi. :)

  2. You can use the Dove shampoo you don't like to wash your brushes ;)

    1. I'm actually using hard soap for cleaning brushes, it works much much better. :)

  3. Čeprav me niso nikoli kaj dosti zanimali, sem si zamislila sprobat ta leave-in mleka za tuširanje in sem razmišljala prav Balea Dusch-Bodymilk vzet. A se sploh splača sprobat ali so Dove tuš geli petstokrat boljši?

    Sem pa kupila balzam od Dove Pure Pflege in mi je nek trapast šmorn (ali pa so moji lasje tako čudni zdajle). Nič kaj posebnega ni naredil, sploh ni primerljiv s tisto 1 minute verzijo. Mi je žal, da sem ga vzela :/

    1. Za mojo kožo Dove geli naredijo več, ampak veliko deklet hvali tole mleko, tako da poskusi, če želiš, mogoče boš pa ti zadovoljna.
      Šampon res ni bog ve kaj, za balzam pa sem mislila, da bo mogoče ok.

  4. Mogoče ti je pa ta Dove šampon preveč build up-a ustvaril, meni se isto zgodi z enim od L'oreala, če ga prepogsto uporabljam. Je pa meni za razliko od Mateje, balzam super :)
    Si bila pa zelo pridna pri maskarah :)

    1. Maybe, ampak sem en čas uporabljala Aussie, ki mi je bil ok, in če sem tega samo enkrat uporabila, mi je spet prehitro zmastil lase. Trenutno uporabljam Glissovega Diamond in so lasje še naslednji dan lepi in ne tako zelo mastni.
      Saj zaradi tebe razmišljam, da bi kupila balzam. :)
      Nekatere sem porabila, tistih, ki mi niso odgovarjale, pa itak nimam smisla, da obdržim. :)

  5. Glede šampona je možno, da se ti je začel nabirati na laseh inn so bili zato mastni. To se je meni zgodilo z enim Niveinim, in je bilo tako kot pri tebi: na začetku ene par tednov v redu, potem pa mastni že naslednji dan. Baje da obstajajo šamponi, da se znebiš tega ''build-up''a od šampona, ampak jaz prisegam na sodo bikarbono :)

    1. Mogoče res, ampak a bi potem kateri drugi šampon deloval, če jih ne bi prej globinsko očistila? Ker sem začela uporabljati Glissovega Diamond in so lasje krasni še drugi dan po pranju, na samo prvega. Še sedaj na tretji dan so dejansko mehki in ne čutiti tako mastni, kot so bili pri Dove-u.

  6. Super pridna,jst sem imela nivein Bodymilk za tuširanje in sem bila zadovoljna, dejansko se nisem rabla po tuširanju več namazat z kremo za telo, mi je bil bodymilk čist dovolj, nivein itak, da naredijo, da ful lepo diši, tega od Baleje pa še nisem poskusla:) Dove šampon pa sem nazadnje poskusla mislim, da pred 4 leti in vem, da mi je takrat bil ok, zj se pa nekak nikoli ne spomnem najn:). Od Gliss Kura sicer nisem imela šampona ampak iz te iste linije masko za lase, pa mi je bla kr ok, čeprav sem pričakovala več tistega leska, ki ga obljublja, tako, da nakupa ravno nisem ponovila;).

    1. Ti Bodymilki res delujejo za veliko punc, ampak jaz osebno nisem opazila nobene razlike npr. z negovalnimi geli za tuširanje. Moja koža je najlepše negovana, če uporabim Dove. Tudi tale Balein lepo diši, če boš probala. :)
      Meni je pa tale linija v celoti zelo všeč, tako da mislim, da bom ponovila nakup. :D

  7. Dove geli za tuširanje so res božanski, koža pa takoooo mehka. :)

  8. WOW, that is a lot of mascara! :D I was thinking bout the alverde hair oil, so thanks for saving me some pennies.


Thank you for all your sweet comments, I appreciate every one of them. <3
