Over the past couple of months I’ve finished quite a few more products. Some I’ve loved and will replace, others I’ve liked enough to finish but haven’t necessarily loved enough to replace.

So without any further chit chat let’s look at what I’ve finished and whether I will be replacing each of these products or not.

Let’s start with an unusual one for me.

About five years ago my dentist was concerned that I brushed my teeth too vigorously, making my gums bleed. He was concerned I would make my gums recede if I continued with this practice.

So he recommended I buy an oscillating electric toothbrush (not a rotating one) which I did.

Every so often I’d buy several packets of replacement brush heads so I could change the head of the toothbrush at least every three months. All was going well, my brushing was gentler, I had no teeth or gum issues, all was good!

Until I recently went to buy more brush heads only to be told that they no longer made them for my model of electric toothbrush! Don’t you just hate it when that happens!

As a result I had to trash my perfectly functioning Oral B Sonic Complete Braun electric toothbrush just because I couldn’t buy any more heads for it and buy a whole new electric toothbrush! NOT HAPPY ORAL B and BRAUN!

At least I’m happy with the replacement electric toothbrush I found at The Shaver Shop.
Similar to my last electric toothbrush it oscillates instead of rotates, as recommended to me by my dentist, and is gentle on my teeth and gums.

It was also one of the more reasonably priced electric toothbrushes – yay! Plus the staff at The Shaver Shop reassured me that this is a relatively new model and will have replacement brush heads available for many years to come! 

Country Life Outback Sunset Body Wash
Over the Christmas holidays we had some overseas visitors so I bought Australian themed body wash for the bathroom for their benefit which we have now finished.

I enjoyed this product but have plenty of other body washes to use up so I won’t be rushing out to repurchase this one.


Lush Magic Wand Bubble Bar

This stunning pink magic wand bubble bar was amazing! It looked gorgeous on display in my bathroom but my urge to use it was too strong. I got three bubble baths out of it. I would definitely repurchase this if I saw it but I think it may have been a limited edition Christmas item.

Lush Pink Flamingo Bubble Bar

I love my scented bubbles and this pink Flamingo Bubble Bar was so gorgeously cute! I loved this and will definitely repurchase this again!

Vibrantly colourful with popping candy and divinely scented fair trade vanilla I loved this bath bomb and will be repurchasing it next time I’m in Lush.

Lush Divine Whale Soap

This soap supports the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. It was a gift from a friend. I’d be happy to repurchase this soap.

bhave Rescue Shampoo & bhave Rescue Conditioner
Yes, I know that bhave seems to feature in every one of my empties posts and to be honest I think finishing my shampoo and conditioner is often my prompt that it’s time to write another empties post! 

bhave products are my holy grail hair care products and I will always replace them. They make a significant and noticeable difference to my hair!

Skin Care Empties
Skin Care Empties
I loved this product but it is quite expensive and as I don’t have sensitive skin I will probably just replace it with a cheaper micellar water for now that I find equally as effective.
Elucent Anti-Ageing Gentle Cleanser
This is the perfect gentle cleanser for my age! I will probably repurchase it at some stage in the future but I have a couple of other cleansers to use up first and I’m determined to shop my stash a bit more this year. Click HERE to read my review of this product and the rest of the Elucent Anti-Ageing range.

Goodness Every Week Face Scrub
This was a pleasant enough face scrub but it didn’t wow me! I won’t be repurchasing this again in the forseeable future.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
This was a lovely and gentle yet effective exfoliatant. I can totally see why it has a cult following! I absolutely love this product and will repurchase it!

Dermalogica Powerbright TRx Pure Light SPF50
This product was prescribed to me following a Face Mapping Skin Analysis by Dermalogica.

The aim of this product is to reduce skin hyper-pigmentation and prevent the development of new pigmentation from UV light from the sun.

It’s a brilliant product especially for women in their 40’s and beyond but it is quite expensive unfortunately!

I will still probably repurchase this down the track again however. 

RosehipPLUS Nourishing Night Cream
I really liked this night cream and I love the fact that is certified organic. I would be happy to repurchase this cream but I have several other night creams to use first.

Swisspers Make-Up Pads
Although I didn’t think I had any particular preference for one brand of makeup pads over another, I do always tend to grab these Swisspers ones. I have already repurchased another packet of these.

Save Our Skin By Innoxa NoTox Hyaluronic Eye Patches
Over the Christmas and New Year period I had a lot of events I wanted to look my best at. I therefore used quite a lot of these eye patches to smooth away the lines around my eye area.

These eye patches are amazingly effective! I’m so happy to have found them as prior to using them I had tried numerous other products to no great avail!

I can finally say that I have found a product that achieves good results and doesn’t require any injections. I’m too much of a wuss to try anything injectable!
I have already repurchased these Save Our Skin By Innoxa eye patches. Given my budget I don’t use them every day obviously but I do use them the night before any special occasion that I want to look my best at.

Rimmel London BB Cream 9-in-1 Radiance
I will definitely be repurchasing this product. It is my go-to base product when I’m in a hurry and with it’s 9-in-1 functions it saves me a lot of time in the mornings! It’s also very affordably priced! 

O.P.I Avoplex Cuticle Oil To Go
I have already repurchased this cuticle oil. I always have one in my handbag to keep my cuticles under control when I’m out and about. I use this when I’m stuck in waiting rooms or on public transport etc. This cuticle oil is even more of an essential in Winter!

Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer
I swear these lip shimmers somehow magically multiple in my handbags. They’re 100% natural and are brilliant for moisturising, soothing and conditioning your lips whilst adding a pop of colour and a touch of shimmer!

  1. I don't buy any makeup remover pads other than Swisspers – absolutely the best. And I reckon the Save Our Skin By Innoxa NoTox Hyaluronic Eye Patches are going to be my next fave – Barbe loves them and if you do too Ingrid, then it's a sure bet for me xxx
