This month as well, I have 5 products that I've used up, to share with you.
To me personally, "empties" are always interesting, as I can get some good recommendations or find out which products are not that worth of hype!
So let's see together, my empties for this month.
Garnier Dry Body Oil (Olive Extract)
Dove Bath Foam
Batist Dry Shampoo
Nivea Q 10 Serum Pearls
Garnier Cocoa and Coconut Oil Hair Conditioner
There's a couple hair products that I'd like to talk to you about.
Garnier Hair Conditioner with Cocoa and Coconut Oil Extract. This product is very affordable price wise and it's overall a good conditioner: It has got a pleasant scent and it's quite creamy and moisturizing. It leaves your hair straight and soft and I love the scent!
If you don't want to splurge on expensive high end hair care products, this one is a good drugstore buy!
For ages I was convinced that the Batist Dry Shampoo was the popular "Batiste" Dry Shampoo, only an Italian version of it. But then I realized this was made in Italy and other than a very similar name, it doesn't have much to do with the famous "Batiste" dry shampoo. This one will do the job, but it's more of an "old school" dry shampoo. It comes only in this version, whereas the "Batiste" one comes in many different varieties and let's face it, it's way more fun to use!
Unfortunately, in Italy (at least in my area) we don't have the "Batiste" one (I buy it when I'm in Croatia), so "Batist" it was this time! I wasn't too impressed and if I can avoid buying it again, I will.
I'll much rather opt for the awesome Klorane Dry Shampoo then, which is available at our local pharmacies.
"Batist" I have to say was kind of a "no-no" for me.
Next I have two body care products.
Dove Bath Foam was very creamy and nourishing, nicely scented and was leaving my skin soft and moisturized. It's a drugstore product, so very affordable. I would buy it again, maybe trying out other scents, as it comes in a variety of different options.
Garnier Dry Body Oil was a true discovery for me right after I gave birth. I was very busy with my newborn son and also quite weak in the postpartum period, so I didn't have much time, or strength to do my usual everyday beauty routine. However I didn't want to neglect myself, so after taking a shower, this oil was the best for a quick nourishment! I loved everything about it: how easy it was to apply, quick to absorb and it's beautifully scented. I most certainly will buy it again. It's also great if you don't have much time to dedicate to your beauty routine after showering!
Last is one face care product: Nivea Q 10 Serum Pearls. I bought this at my local drugstore even before I got pregnant. I started using it, but then I had to stop for a while, as during my pregnancy (especially in the first trimester) the scent of this product was making me sick!
I started using it again not that long ago and I just recently used it up. I was using this as a serum, before my daily moisturizer. The yellow pearls turn into a creamy consistency as soon as you press the pump and it's non greasy and easy to absorb. I don't mind the scent anymore but I do wish it was less scented. This way it looks too artificial, so I doubt I'll be buying it again.
My favourite product from these empties is definitely Garnier Dry Body Oil! I absolutely love & recommend it!
If you get a chance to try it out, please let me know your opinions!
