Empties #11

My favourite scrub so far. I was so frugal with it just so it would last me longer because I can't get this brand anywhere else than on eBay. It's a very harsh sugar scrub, just the way I like it and it has a very moisturising, oily formula meaning there is no need for moisturisers afterwards. It smells like a gentler version of Miss Dior Cherie.
Repurchase: Yes.

Such a wonderful shower product. It's has quite a unique gel-oil texture that transforms into luxurious creamy foam. The scrubby particles aren't too harsh, so I used it as a regular shower gel. It also smells lovely, kind of sweet nutty-floral.  
Repurchase: Yes.

A fantastic dry oil in a spray that is so easy to apply. It literally takes seconds and you're done. It has the same scent as the scrub.
Repurchase: Yes.

This is my favourite gradual self tanner. Even from one application I get a decent amount of colour, but it's after three that people start asking where have I been sunbathing. I loved using this for my face because it is more moisturising than the Clarins lotion which I used before. I've actually stopped self tanning or at least I don't do it particularly often, since everyone has made it their mission to inform me of how pale I am, so I like to annoy them by being the human counterpart of Snow White, as it appears they can't wrap their heads around the fact that people with fair skin do exist and they like being pale (in their minds it's almost criminal). Therefore this tan is very old and as it's expected by now it does develop that classic self-tan scent by the morning, but when it was new, the scent was barely detectable and it had a melon-citrus scent upon application.
Repurchase: Yes.

Though it's a creamy cleanser that I had trouble adjusting to, since it doesn't feel quite as luxurious as a balm or cleansing oil, my skin adored this. In those three months that I've been using it, my skin looked so healthy and there wasn't a blemish in sight, even though I skipped AHA products during the summer (I didn't want to risk sun damage, which is ironic considering there were about three sunny days in total this summer). Only Balance Me kept my skin in such good condition. I know I said I find it unremarkable, but now I think it's bloody brilliant. I did use it up quite fast, however, it's inexpensive, so I don't mind.
Repurchase: Yes.

One of my HG items, I pretty much can't be without it for a day, so I always buy a spare well before the previous one runs out. I've been using it as a face moisturiser for three years now and my skin is in such good condition, it looks healthy and is super soft. I adore this stuff and one bottle lasts me ages.
Repurchase: Already did.

A nice shampoo that does its job, but that's it. It leaves the hair "too clean" for my liking, by that I mean too stripped, which is something that an an individual with dry hair don't particularly like. It's ok, but not exceptional enough to justify the price and I much prefer the Oleo-Relax. It smells lovely just like the oil, maybe a bit more masculine.
Repurchase: Not likely.

I've tried quite a few of these salon brands silicone-oils and this one along with Orofluido are my absolute favourites. I find it's the best one for dry hair and has great frizz reducing capabilities. The scent is a love-it-or-hate-it one, to me it smells like my grandfathers cologne, so masculine, but I've heard some say it reminds them of vanilla and sandalwood. I sometimes loved the scent and then sometimes not so much, but it definitely slowly grew on me. 
Repurchase: Yes.


REFAN fragrances 
I used a bunch of Refan fragrances, all 15 ml that I've had for a really long time. I love these, but I just want to warn you that these do go a bit off after three years, which is a period most people use up their fragrances already, but I'm obviously not such a person. By off I mean that the scent changes a bit, mostly it gets more alcohol smelling and more bland from the start, but it develops the same, so clearly the top notes are the first to go. 
A tropical hibiscus scent: floral, clean and a bit juicy. When you smell it, it's like - yeah that's what coral colour would smell like if it had a scent. Actually, it smells similar to Kérastase Chroma Sensitive Cleansing Balm, but it was never my favourite. 
Repurchase: No.

A creamy, woody fragrance with some vanilla. I hear others notice a strong plum note, but it doesn't develop on me. To me it lacked something that would make it special.
Repurchase: I'm not sure they sell it anymore. 

A sweet, fruity, yet a warm scent that has quite a lot of silage. I get strawberries and other berries with some musk and violets. I liked it, but I got bored with it after a while.
Repurchase: I'm not sure.

The wood, floral notes and musk combined create a simple, fresh, clean and classic scent that is slightly bitter and unisex. This is very highly rated on Make up Alley, but I just never really got it. It's not bad, just a bit odd for my liking and no one liked it on me.
Repurchase: No.

I'm a huge fan of peach scents and The Body Shop's version is my favourite, but this YR version doesn't even remotely resemble anything peach. It is quite a strange scent, like it's not even fruity, but completely artificial. I used it as a room scent to get rid of it. If you want to try any of these Les Plaisirs Nature scents, go for coconut or vanilla, because they are awesome and the scents are true to their name.
Repurchase: No.


Have a great day!

    1. Flake Away pa Rightenous Butter sta super, Heel Genius se mi pa ni dopadla. Jaz bi sprobala še kakšen piling pa njihov mejkap :)

  2. Oba Garniera sta res top, se pa strinjam glede Refan parfumčkov - po določenem času se vonj spremeni. Moj Refanov Eden je začel že prav smrdeti in takrat je romal v smeti. Mi je pa všeč kako si stekleničke po svoje uredila :)

    1. Moji Refanovi so bili kar v dobrem stanju glede na starost, je pa res, da sem jih imela v temnem prostoru. Nekateri pač niso več dišali tako intenzivno kot od začetka, ampak za ta denar jim tega ne zamerim, tri leta je dolga doba :)
      Flaške sem pa okrasila predvsem zato, da sem vedela kateri je kateri brez da številke gledam. Je prav kjut izpadlo z meme-ji :)

  3. The only one I've tried is the Flake Away body scrub. It is divine and smells so good I really felt like eating it.

    1. I love the scent. I actually purchased the Righteous Butter immediately after using Flake Away the first time, just because it smells about the same :)

  4. Za tale Good Things cleanser pa morem pogledat v Londonu.
    A si slučajno sprobala Afroditin Spa sladkorni peeling? Ker sem imela tega od Soap & Glory na WL, pa me zanima če sta si slučajno podobna, ker si napisala da ima ta tudi oily formulo. Mi gre to pri Afrodotinem ful na živce, ker se ne da vredu sprat in imam občutek kot da bi se z margarino namazala :D

    1. Nisem še sprobala od Afrodite, ker imam trenutno enega od TBS-ja. Tale Flake Away se tudi ne spere čisto, je tisti oljni sloj na koži, tako da če ti to ni všeč, Flake Away mogoče ni zate. Meni je bilo to kar kul, ker sem potem še dišala zelo dolgo po tem pilingu :)

  5. I am so so soooo in love with Nuxe's Huile Prodigieuse. It is one of the best-smelling products out there for me :-) I've repurchased it quite a few times now and I just don't get tired of it.

    1. I don't even notice the scent any more after three years of everyday use, but I remember loving it from the beginning :)

  6. Nuxe. <3 Meni Yves Rocher toaletne vodice niso pri srcu. Sem dobila kot darilo vonj po gozdnih sadežih in mi tam ni slabo dišal, doma pa mi je začel iti vonj na živce, ker je preveč umeten.
