Empties #5

Here is my first empties post of 2013!  I've actually had these lying around for ages and ideally I wanted this post up on the 31st of December, but between one thing and another that did not happen!  Never mind, better late than never :)

Boots Provitamin and Avon

Boots Provitamin Colour Radiance Shampoo
Thoughts:  Pretty average shampoo, but I do think it helped prolong the colour I had in my hair.  I was only using it to use it up though after a while so I really didn't need that as I was/am trying to get the colour out of my hair!!
Cruelty-free?: Yes, although there is some questioning about Boots own brands, however their statement seems okay to me.
Repurchase?: Unlikely.

Boots Provitamin Colour Radiance Conditioner
Thoughts: Not the best conditioner as I found it left my hair quite tangled. 
Cruelty-free?: As above.
Repurchase?: No.

Avon Foot Works Sugar Lime Mojito Exfoliating Scrub
Thoughts:  I did quite like this, smells really good and felt nice to use.
Cruelty-free?: No.
Repurchase?: No.

Neal's Yard Remedies and Montagne Jeunesse

Neal's Yard Organic Facial Wipes
Thoughts: These smell really nice as they are camomile and lavender so perfect for bedtime.  They weren't much use for taking off eye makeup but seeing as that's not really what they're meant for I will let that slide!  They stayed nice and moist (gross word...) for ages too which is good, nothing worse than getting to the last few wipes to find they're dry as a bone!  The downside for me is the price, at £5.50 a pack it's not something that I could afford on a regular basis.    
Cruelty-free?: Yes, BUAV Approved and suitable for vegans.
Repurchase?: If they were reduced!

Montagne Jeunesse Strawberry Soufflé Moisturising & Purifying Masque
Thoughts:  I'm not a big face mask fan but I won this along with a white chocolate one in a giveaway so I decided to give it a go.  The cold weather made my skin really dry and dehydrated so I went for this one as it seemed the most moisturising of the two.  It smelled good but unfortunately it irritated my skin!!  I still left it on for the recommended amount of time (oops) as it wasn't that bad and it didn't have any last effect on my skin but it was uncomfortable.  I think my skin just became really sensitive because of the weather too?!
Cruelty-free?: Yes, BUAV Approved.
Repurchase?: No.



  1. I've found that every mask I've tried recently has really irritated my skin, so weird x

    1. Oh really? How odd. I'm going to wait a while before trying the other one!

  2. I have awarded you the Leibster Award - YAY!!!


  3. I really like those masks, not that keen on the strawberry ones but I'm not a fan of strawberry scents.
    I love the neals yard wipes though but I agree a little too expensive for me too sadly

    1. Yes it was a bit like putting yoghurt on my face and I don't really like yoghurt but it was very realistic haha! If Neal's Yard did BOGOF on the wipes I'd definitely buy some haha :D


Thank you so much for your comments, they are much appreciated! :)
