Empties #1


 I've seen quite a few people doing 'Monthly Empties' posts and I've wanted to do it too but I don't actually finish anything quickly enough!  I will try do one every time I get to 5 empty products.  So to take a closer look at the first five items:


Boots Skin Silk Anti-Perspirant Deodorant
Thoughts: Trying to find a cruelty free deodorant is the bane of my life!  That and perfume!  I tried this Boots one because I don't like aerosols and thought I would try a roll-on.  I didn't really like it as it took ages to dry under my arms and I didn't feel like it worked all that well either.
Cruelty-free?: Yes.
Repurchase?: No, and I think I'll avoid roll-ons in future, I prefer sticks but they're hard to find!

Naked Colour Protecting Conditioner:
Thoughts: I bought this along with the shampoo which I have stopped using for the meantime.  I thought it was okay but I found that my hair was still quite tangly after using it when usually conditioner detangles!
Cruelty-free?: Yes.
Repurchase?: No, but I will try other conditioners from this brand instead.

Boots Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover: 
Thoughts: Really cheap, £1.25 I think, works well enough!  Only thing I dislike is the smell, it's bit sickly but I can deal with it!
Cruelty-free?: Yes.
Repurchase?: Yes, already have!


Gosh Long Lasting Lip Marker in Pink:
Thoughts: It is okay but it feathers out around my lips, so then I would need to use lip liner with it. However this clogged up the felt tip and stopped as much product getting out!
Cruelty-free?: Yes.
Repurchase?: No, but I do like the lip markers so I'll maybe try a different brand.

Avon Perfect Wear Eyeliner in Black:
Thoughts: It was good to start off with but it suddenly just became really watery and blue rather than black.
Cruelty-free?: No.
Repurchase?: No, but I do need to find a CF felt tip liner, they are my favourite kind!

  1. Great idea about including whether they're cruelty free or not. Are boots definitely cruelty free? Wish companies weren't so ambiguous! X

    1. Argh I know! Yes I'm pretty sure they are but again it's hard to be 100%. I sent them an email and the reply they sent me sounded like they don't test on animals, and I did double check it at one point because someone had said they weren't. I trust them at the moment!!

    1. I have some issues with Superdrug cos they donate to a charity which tests on animals which is a bit off in my opinion! But I think I might have to as I'm really struggling to find another one, and it's quite a necessity :P
