My March Empties.

I've been using the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment for around four months now and I've seen a huge improvement in my hair in terms of condition, but yet not so much in growth. My hairdresser tells me that no product can actually make your hair grow faster, it can only help the condition of your hair and therefore help it reach its potential. Alas, I'm undecided as to whether this is worth another purchase. I'm pretty sad that I've used up my L'oreal Elnett Satin 3 Day Straight Heat Protect as it really is amazing for locking out frizz and smoothing down the hair cuticle. Obviously I will be running out to repurchase this in the (very) near future. Another hair product is a miniature Batiste Dry Shampoo and I have to admit I'm not really a fan of this or any other dry shampoo. I don't like the feel of it in my hair, not to mention the horrible powdery layer it can leave behind should you accidentally use a little too much. I do like having this for after the gym when I don't have enough time to shower though so I probably will repurchase. 

The L'oreal Micellar Water is something that has been bobbing in and out of my skincare stash for a while now, but I've actually switched over to Garnier's Offering since discovering you get more for your buck. Basically these products are exactly the same except for you get more in one for the same price! I've also managed to use up one of my most beloved pamper products, The Body Shop Honeymania Scrub which is one of my favourite scents as its so sweet and delicate, and leaves just enough lingering on the skin. To add to this I have two empty perfume bottles. I went through my (MASSIVE) perfume collection at the start of the year and decided I was going to use up all the bottles with a teeny bit left in them. two of these were Vera Wang Rock Princess, which is nothing special, and my absolute favourite Giorgio Armani's Acqua Gioia. I'll let you guys work out for yourselves what one I will be repurchasing!

Onto make up now, and there isn't all that much. Firstly, I have my usual empty tube of Lasting Perfection Concealer which will always be repurchased forever until the day they stop making it, which I hope is never! I have a little mini of Benefit They're Real which I like but find it near impossible to remove from my lashes, and a used up No7 lash Adapt Mascara in Black; great, but pretty darn pricey for a drugstore mascara if you ask me! I also hit the pan on MeMeMe's! Blush Me! in Coral, which is something of a dupe for the infamous Benefit blushers. Nice, but quite difficult to get hold of, and not a patch on my current Sleek favourite. And last but by no means least Clarins Daily Energizer Cream which I got in a little set. I won't purchase this one again purely because of the lack of SPF, but it is nice. 

So that's everything I've used up this month! Have any of you used any of these products?



  1. The Body Shop honey scrub is perfect! And you mentioned that the MeMeMe blush isn't a patch on your Sleek favourite.. which is your Sleek favourite just out of interest? :)
