This is quite soon after my last empties post actually, I must have been very busy over the festive period! I've been working my way through some non cruelty free items which is good, also some samples I've accumulated over the years! These will be in the next empties post :)
Boots Botanics Soothing Eye Make Up Remover
Thoughts: I really liked this, it worked pretty well. It was a bit oily but this didn't really both me as I would cleanse or tone (or both) afterwards.
Cruelty-free?: Yes, although there is some questioning about Boots own brands, however their statement seems okay to me.
Repurchase?: No, they have rebranded and it now has a different formula.
Bionsen Stick Deodorant
Thoughts: I bought this in the hope it would be cruelty free. Trying to find cruelty free deodorant is a nightmare, especially on the high street or in supermarkets! It was average, I don't feel like it kept me dry all day.
Cruelty-free?: I emailed them and I got automated reply that they would "endeavour to respond as soon as possible". This was in September. SEPTEMBER. I'm going to assume NO.
Rituals Yogi Flow Foaming Shower Gel Sensation
Thoughts: I loved this! It was so fun because it foamed (such a child!) and felt so soft and lovely on the skin. It smells really good too even though it's got sweet almond oil in it and I hate almondy things!
Repurchase?: Definitely! It is quite pricey though but perhaps as wee treat!
Benefit They're Real Mascara
Thoughts: This mascara was pretty good. However I found that you would have to leave it to dry for a couple of days before it gets good, I hated it when I first got it!!
Cruelty-free?: No, they sell in China.
Lush Ultimate Shine Solid Shampoo Bar (not pictured)
Thoughts: You can see my full review here, but I just wanted to say how I really liked using this to clean my make up brushes!
Repurchase?: Yes, to share between my hair and my brushes!
