Recent Empties

Last month I decided to make my recent empties a regular monthly feature on my blog and May‘s empties does not disappoint. I feel like I used up a fair few products last month and it’s helping me with my no spend/use up challenge I set myself earlier in the year. I used up 5 different products this month, ranging from hair, teeth, drinks and fragrance.


First up I finished a bottle of Head & Shoulders Itchy Scalp. These bottles are giant and always take ages to use up. I normally use a sensitive scalp or itchy scalp shampoo because my scalp is very sensitive and certain shampoos give me problems. I like this one but I found it a bit too harsh on my scalp and won’t be buying it again if I’m honest.

Next up was a Touch of Silver travel size shampoo. I got this as a stocking filler at Christmas but only recently put the blonde back through my hair so felt it appropriate to start using it to help brighten the blonde and keep the colour vibrant. I love this purple shampoo and will definitely be purchasing it again in the future. The purple tones help stop the blonde from looking brassy or yellowed.

I have been using a whitening toothpaste recently to keep my teeth looking wonderful and picked up the Arm & Hammer Extra White baking soda toothpaste a couple of months ago. At first use it has a weird taste due to the baking soda in it but I wouldn’t change toothpaste now as I find this one is perfect from keeping teeth stain free and shiny.

I got a set of M&S fragrances at Christmas as well and have been trying to use them up as I got quite a few in the set. The first one I have finished is the ISIS fragrance and it has a lovely fragrance to it. I don’t think I would rush out to buy anymore though as I prefer the New York fragrance in this range a lot more and will stick to that one in the future but it’s a lovely and fresh floral scent.

Now onto something non-beauty, a jar of the lovely Chocolate Orange Beanies Coffee. I love a good cup of coffee or something posher like a cappuccino or mocha but I will admit to being rather dubious of these flavours at first. The chocolate orange flavour is absolutely divine and I am deeply upset that I have finished the jar now, however I have a couple more to try out and am very excited after loving this one so much.


Have you finished any products lately that you loved/hated?

Hope you enjoyed
