It's empties time again! If you are new to my blog then just to clarify I do my empties posts when I get to 5 items, it means there are always the same amount, if I did it monthly it would be very uneven!
Dove Beauty Care Body Wash in Silk Glow
Thoughts: This smells really nice actually and made a lovely creamy lather, however one of the main ingredients is Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLS) which is an ingredient I try to avoid, especially in such large quantities. SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate also falls into this category) is basically the foaming agent and it's very hard to avoid. Even most Lush products contain it, but usually in a lower quantity.
Cruelty-free?: No, Dove are owned by Unilever.
Pearl Drops Hollywood Instant Teeth Whitening Toothpaste
Thoughts: I bought this a while ago because my dentist advised me to use a whitening toothpaste once a day. I had totally forgotten about it and decided to finish it off. For this period I used it twice a day and I didn't notice any change to be honest. I wasn't exactly cataloguing it but never did I notice them being any whiter. I would quite like to have my teeth professionally whitened but I'm worried about it making them sensitive!
Cruelty-free?: No, Pearl Drops are owned by Church & Dwight.
Repurchase?: No, but if I came across a cruelty free version I would maybe start using it once a day.
Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub
Thoughts: I really liked this, it smelled and tasted so good! The only thing is that I didn't finish it - it went out of date! As much as I love it I don't think it's worth £5.25 (I swear it was £4.95 when I bought it!?). I'm keeping the pot and going to have a go at making it myself at some point...
Repurchase?: Not unless the DIY one is really bad!
Virgin Vie Icon Pearliser Stick
Thoughts: I have had this for years and years! Since I don't use it I decided it was time to bin it. It's basically a cream highlighter in a stick form, however I don't like it because it's got kind of a sticky texture which doesn't blend into the skin very well.
Bourjois Volume Fast & Perfect Mascara
Thoughts: I love this mascara! I think I will do a post later on comparing this mascara to Benefit They're Real because I am loving them both currently and I'm not sure which I prefer.
