Empties #4

You know how these go by now... yay trash!

Bodhi and Birch Pep Noir Bath & Shower Therapy*
We received this gorgeous shower gel as part of a wonderful hamper arranged by Elijah that was delivered to the Reading bloggers meet last October. Yes... last October. It has taken me this long to finish it up. You only need the tiniest pump and it really didn't want to leave (I didn't want it to leave either). It smelt absolutely divine but unfortunately I won't be repurchasing as I have many many (many) bar soaps to use up. I'm currently using the 'Mint Thé' scent. 

Devita Acne Solution Pads
A desperate acne-induced purchase from Vitacost. They didn't really do much and they smell awful. I won't be repurchasing. Also, totally not cost efficient as you don't get many pads in a pot. 

MyChelle White Cranberry Cleanser
Another acne-induced purchase... however, this one was a little more effective. I definitely suggest checking this out if you are looking for a salicylic acid based cleanser that still has decent ingredients and isn't too expensive. I really believe that this has helped reduce my blocked pores and closed comedones. I did find it a little drying however so I will not be repurchasing, now that my skin is better. 

Acure Morrocan Argan Stem Cell + Argan Oil Shampoo
*sigh* An old favourite. But something I will now be letting go of since finding a new shampoo that is more suited to my hair and scalp. I do suggest you give this a go if you have very damaged hair but I won't be repurchasing. I shall definitely miss the scent, which is strange, as it smells quite strongly of marzipan and I really hate marzipan. 

Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-In Conditioner
Something that I'm not quite missing but will definitely be giving another go in the future. I'm convinced that this wasn't working for me due to my shampoo, not because of any failure of its own. Expensive, but I look forward to repurchasing. Yarok is such a cool brand!

Marmozel Floral Facial Toner*
I loved this! It's simple but effective. You can find out more about what I thought of this toner in my Introduction to Marmozel Skincare. May not repurchase as I have plenty of toners to use up first.

Dash Skincare Tropical Smoothie*
A coconut oil based body balm that I really enjoyed! It smells just as the name suggests - like a piña colada. Again not something I will be repurchasing as I have lots to use up. This was quite an old sample, from last year's LNLO show... eeeek! I think it might be discontinued. 

Lulu & Boo Organics Melissa & Mallow Foot Balm*
Another sample that was from the Reading meet! This foot balm smells really lovely. However, for me, foot balms have to be super effective due to my dermatitis. This didn't quite make the grade unfortunately! Won't be repurchasing. 

Have you tried any of these products?
