April 2013 Empties!

Hey everyone! This is going to be a short post for this month's empties because I don't have nearly as many as I did last month! I still figured I 'd show you all what little bit I used up though, so here they are!

The first products I used up are The Body Shop Rainforest Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. I don't have much to say about these honestly. I love The Body Shop products, but their shampoos and conditioners aren't that great. They don't particularly clean my hair very well and the conditioner doesn't hydrate very well either. The only decent thing going for these products are they smell amazing! I think I still have one more shampoo and conditioner to use up from The Body Shop.

The next product I've had for ages and it's the Philosophy Handmade Hand Cream. I swear, this has just been sitting in my handbag for so long, and finally it's gone. I don't have much to say about this either, except for the amazing smell. It smells like a lemon custard cake! This product doesn't moisturize very well and doesn't last through hand washings either. I honestly don't know if Philosophy still carries this hand cream. Either way, I wouldn't repurchase.

My next product is another dud for me! I'm not sure what it is about this empties post, but I dislike everything so far (until my last product!). Benefit's The POREfessional, to me, should not be as hyped up as it's been. Seriously, this primer did absolutely nothing for my skin, and I have ginormous pores. I always hear amazing things about this primer, but it just did not work for me. This is just a little sample sized bottle and I may have more in my sample shoebox. To me, this is not worth the $30 price tag for the full sized bottle.

Now for my last empty, which is The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Butter. I can't get enough of these body butters! These have to be my favorite body butters of all time, no lie! Even their regular body lotion that comes in a pump bottle is amazing, and that's what I usually switch to when the weather gets warmer. Anyways, I know I've mentioned numerous times how much I love these; they're hydrating, they smell good and they have community trade ingredients in every product they make, which is amazing. You all know I'll be repurchasing these!

Well that's everything! I know this wasn't a very happy post with how I liked everything, but I'm sure May has some much better products! I should have way more empties than I did for April!

What did everyone else use up?


  1. I agree with the Body Shop Rainforest Shampoo. It doesnt do anything good to my hair. So i threw it away eventhough i still have half a bottle left.

    1. I should just throw them away, but I hate wasting products. Plus, those shampoos aren't really cheap either!

  2. Great info! Thanks so much for joining us at the Let's Get Social Sunday linky party. Have a wonderful week!

  3. I love body butters :)
