Products I’ve used up – EMPTIES #22


It’s time for new empties post. I’ve been collection empties for past two months and I have quite a few things to share with you. I’ll include mini reviews of products and rate, so you can know what is worth checking out. I’ll try to keep this post as short as possible, but there is a lot of products so I’m not sure can I make it short. Let’s start!


Essence Sun Club Matt bronzing powder (lighter skin)
This was my project pan bronzer for past 4 months and it’s finally empty. It took me so long to use this one up as it is massive. It’s really good light bronzer, but I prefer something a bit darker. Still I think I’ll buy this one again, as it is indeed really good, super cheap and easy to use.
Rate – 5/5

Rosal Sensitive lip balm
I didn’t really enjoy this one. It was alright, but nothing special. I don’t think I would buy this one again.
Rate – 3/5

Catrice Lip oil (Spending all my honey)
I love these Catrice oils, I already used one up, but that one was dark pink shade. I would totally buy it again, but they don’t make these any more unfortunately.
Rate – 4/5

Essence lip liner (Satin Mauve)
I enjoyed these lip liners before. These new, reformulated ones are not good at all. They are dry, not easy to sharpen at all. I basically couldn’t sharp this one, product was just falling off pencil. I would not buy these again, even though this color is so pretty.
Rate – 2/5

Essence Studio Nails Ultra Gloss nail shine
This was great top coat. I didn’t manage to use all of it up, as it got super thick and gloopy. I probably had it for long time, so it’s time to throw it away.
Rate – 4/5


Green Line Clear active cleansing foam
This was nice every day cleanser, but not something I would buy again. I’m not the biggest fan of cleansing foams, I much prefer cleansing gel.
Rate – 3/5

ZIAJA Phyto Aktiv face toner
This was really enjoyable toner. It was really calming on skin and hydrating. It works as a makeup refreshing mist also, so I’ll definitely buy it again.
Rate – 4/5


Balea Beauty Effect eye & lip serum – REVIEW
This was a good product, but not something I would buy again. I saw difference while using it, but when I stopped with using my skin went back to normal. So it gives results, but not in long term. I did full review on this product, check it out here.
Rate – 3/5

Avon Planet Spa Heavenly Hydration face mask – REVIEW
I liked this face mask. It is really good hydrating mask if you have dry skin. I don’t know will I buy it again as I already have a lot of face masks in my stash. I’ll probably wait to use some of them up and then order this one. I did full review on this mask, check it out here.
Rate – 4/5

Balea VITAL neck & chest cream
Again one of those good products, but I’m not sure will I buy it again. This is very rich neck cream that is definitely super hydrating, but I don’t think I need separate cream to moisturize my neck. I can just use body lotion or face cream that I use.
Rate – 4/5

Pozzy Makeup cleansing wipes
These are my go to makeup removing wipes. I’ve been using these for years now and I don’t think I’ll stop buying them ever. They are affordable and great for removing first layer of makeup.
Rate – 5/5

Simply Active 5in1 Cleansing facial wipes
These I never tried before, but I was pleasantly surprised. These are so amazing. They are thin, super wet and hydrating actually. I would definitely buy these again as they are incredible. I have to search for these again, they are definitely essential.
Rate – 5/5

Cotton Soft cotton pads
Again, something that I’ve been using for years. These are super cheap, great and I’ll definitely keep on using them.
Rate – 5/5


Balea Peaceful FLOWER dry shampoo (limited edition)
Usually Balea has great dry shampoos, but this one is trash. It didn’t do anything for my hair. It was like I didn’t have any dry shampoo in my hair. I basically used it when my hair was hard to manage, too silky for styling. This one I used as a texturizing spray to add some texture to my hair, but I would not recommend it. I basically used it up, so I can get money worth and get it out of my collection.
Rate – 1/5


Syoss Heat Protect styling spray
This was fine product, but honestly I didn’t see any effect of this one. I don’t think it’s something you need as long as you keep your hair really healthy. I do take my hair care seriously, so this as an extra product is not essential. I would not buy it again probably.
Rate – 3/5

Avon Naturals Strand STRENGHT detangling spray
This however is an essential. I have really long, thick hair so it is definitely not easy to brush out. This one is great at helping to brush out hair easier. I don’t particularly enjoy smell, but I got used to it as product is really good. This is my second one used up and I already have new one.
Rate – 4/5

Nivea Blonde Care hair conditioner – REVIEW
I don’t really like Nivea hair care. I tried a lot of products and none of them were any good. I haven’t notice any change in my hair from this one. It wasn’t cheap honestly, so I definitely won’t buy this one again, or any Nivea hair care. I did full review on this conditioner and shampoo from the same line, check it out here.
Rate – 2/5

Avon Naturals Soft & Sleek aloe & macadamia treatment mask
This was nothing special really. I wanted to try more Avon Naturals hair care as I love detangling spray so much. But this one was just alright, nothing really worth re buying. It made my hair just a little bit softer, so I definitely won’t buy it again.
Rate – 3/5

Garnier Color Naturals mask with 3 nutritive oils (sample)
This is great hair mask, but you can’t get it in big tub which is so annoying. Like I would have two of these in my hair care stash, because it is that good. Unfortunately you can’t buy it, so I’m just using these samples that come in hair dye that my mom uses.
Rate – 4/5


Balea Jamaica vibes deodorant (limited edition)
This smelled so good, it’s pineapple deodorant. Unfortunately it was limited edition, so I can’t buy it again. But these Balea deodorants are actually really great, especially for the price.
Rate – 5/5

Avon Naturals Cosy Vanilla body lotion
I liked this body lotion, it was light on skin. It gives really light moisture so if you have dry skin, this one is probably not good for you. I liked it, but I’m not sure will I buy it again.
Rate – 3/5

Afrodita Firming Therapy body milk
This one was really nice, I prefer it to Avon Naturals one. It is very light on skin, but it does give enough moisture. The packing is also really nice and easy to use. I would probably buy this one again, it is a bit more expensive than Afrodita body lotion, but it’s worth the extra money.
Rate – 4/5

Afrodita Foot care Fresh foot balm
This one was actually cooling on my feet. It is great foot cream to have after long day of walking or even if you feel like your feet are tired. I would probably buy it again, just for those days when my feet are extra tired. It is not super moisturizing, but it does give enough moisture if that makes sense.
Rate – 4/5


Avon Skin so Soft Silky Moisture nourishing dry oil spray
I really like this dry oil spray. It makes skin super soft and smooth. I don’t like the smell, it’s so intense. As you are spraying this on body you basically breathe in this terrible scent and it actually makes me feel really bad. So I would not buy this again just because of that, but the formula is really nice in my opinion.
Rate – 3/5

Afrodita Foot care Protective foot balm
This is another Afrodita foot cream that I used. I actually used up one of these already, this is my second one. I really enjoy this foot cream. It is hydrating, softening and it smells of menthol which is a good scent in my opinion. I would definitely buy this one again.
Rate – 4/5

Nivea Baby Soft & Cream wet wipes
I used these to clean my hands when I don makeup and they were really good. I don’t know why but I need to have wet wipe with me when I do makeup. My hands always get dirty so for that I always buy big packs of wet wipes. I would buy these ones again, I really liked them.
Rate – 4/5

Dove Caring Protection nourishing shower gel
Oh this Dove shower cream smelled so good. It is such a nice calming frangrance that I really enjoyed. You already know that I’m a big fan of Dove shower creams, because they don’t dry out skin and they have so many different scents to choose from. I already bought another one, but it’s in different scent.
Rate – 5/5

Avon Slip into… Daring fragrance
I had this fragrance for so long, so I had it in my project pan in past two months. I’m happy that I finally used it up. I didn’t really enjoy this one, it doesn’t last for long time which is a must in fragrance that I decide to wear. Also the scent is not something I enjoy right now, I’m more into woody, oud fragrances and this one was berry scented. I don’t think they make this one anymore, but even if they did I would not buy it again.
Rate – 2/5

Balea Hand cream (limited edition)
I liked this hand cream. It wasn’t incredible, but it worked fine. I usually like more hydrating hand creams, but this one was alright for daily wear. I didn’t wear it before bed, because it’s not hydrating enough. I can’t buy it again, because it was limited edition.

  1. Thanks for sharing. It’s so helpful when you do these posts, so we can learn more about what products to buy, or not. Dove never disappoints. I have used the brand’s soap since I was a child. I am not a fan of foam cleaners in winter. They seem to be too drying for my skin. Again, thanks for sharing. xx

  2. Me too, Dove is definitely my go to brand when it comes to affordable body care. I really want to try some of their hair care products too, I hope I’ll try them in next few months. I’m also not a fan of foam cleansers, I tried few and I just don’t enjoy them. I feel like they never clean my skin well and they are definitely a bit too drying for my liking. Thank you for reading. xx
