Beauty Bin May 2018


Another month another post for the beauty bin. It's pretty late this month, considering it's the 23rd it should've been up the first or second week ideally of June so... my bad. Better late than never right?

Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Ultra-Replenishing Lotion - Like most things, I have one too many body lotions. Most of which are half or 3/4 empty. This lotion is one of my absolute faves, it's not overly fragranced and a lighter consistency which makes it so easy to rub in.

Aunt Jackie's Quench Moisture Intensive Leave-In Conditioner - Shopping for shampoo and conditioner is such a pet hate of mine. Everything feels far too dehydrating on my hair and just seems to make my hair really tangled.

H&M Body Splash Sweet Vanilla & Splash Sugar Violet - Sucker for a body mist, or ten. If you've ventured into a H&M store which stocks their beauty range you would've seen these bottles. They've lasted months. The scent doesn't last too long so definitely carry these about with you as the scent will wear off.


Tea Tree Skincare Sensitive Facial Cleansing Wipes - It seems I have quite a few packs of wipes in this empties post. I've gone from using my all time favourite makeup wipes by the brand B. in Superdrug to just using cheaper alternatives alongisde my Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Water. I no longer feel the need to splurge on makeup wipes when I go through so many. The other packs in this post are the Primark Micellar Facial Cleansing Wipes, For All Skin Types and Wilko Sensitive Skin Fragrance Free Wipes. I definitely prefer using sensitive wipes for my skin but I find a lot of these come with an exfoliating side to the wipes which feels a little harsh but just the flip side and voila!

Strawberry Milk One-Pack - Far more impressed by the packaging than the mask itself that's for sure. The scent, great but the mask didn't do much really. This little wonder was found in the Topshop Oxford Circus store amongst their array of other Korean beauty products. It was £2.50 I think and I'll just stick to the Garnier tissue masks, worth a go I guess. Never know until you try!

Cantu Shea Butter For Natural Hair, Intensive Repair Deep Treatment Mask - Love a good hair mask, my hair definitely needs one weekly these days. Leaving this on for roughly 20-25 minutes works a treat for thescent and hydration of my hair, it's also far easier to comb through. Need to get my hands on a few more packs of these in Superdrug.

Soap & Glory Party Recovery Radiance-Boosting Mask - Again, nothing too special but the tissue masks are a nice alternative from clay masks. Wouldn't buy this again but it came with a set, back at Christmas.

MUA Ultra-Fine Loose Setting Powder, Translucent - A fave. For the size you get and the quality it lasts all day. Need to grab my MAC Blot Powder again though, nothing stops the oil coming through my nose apparently ugh.


Cussons Imperial Leather, Cherry Bakewell Bath Cream - Sucker for the sweet stuff, what can I say. Currently sitting on my bath side is the Cussons Imperial Leather, Foamy Banana bath cream. Honestly I'll keep buying this brand one after another when it runs out. For £1 or less and purely for the scent. Mmmmm.

The Body Shop Mango Bath Bomb - Spoken about these before in posts so I'll keep it brief. Much cheaper alternative to Lush products. These are only £1.50 and the scent is just as strong. Unfortunately they don't come in quite the array of fun sizes and shapes like Lush but they serve their purpose.

Palmers Coconut Oil Hand Cream - How long have I used this brand for? I don't even think I could say. I remember my mum said she always used Palmers Coco Butter on me as a baby, so we're talking 23 years I guess! I am that person that will have hand sanitiser and hand cream on me at all times so I need a cream that will last and isn't too thick either - this product is just that. Even in front of me (as I type this post up at work. woo) I've brought myself another one from Boots, just can't get enough.

Miss Cop 01 Nude Eyeshadow Palette - Okay so when I worked at Tk Maxx...6 years ago now? I brought this nude palette as one of my first eyeshadows. It was one of those products that I later found in the bottom of my makeup bag and started to use to fill in my brows instead. This palette was brought later on (few months ago) for a single shade in the palette, just for my eyebrows. I have no use for the other shades which seems a waste but very similar shades are in my Morphe palettes etc.


Treacle Moon That Vanilla Moment Shower Gel -  A gift at Christmas, clearly know how much I love my sweet bath scents, I definitely want to re-purchase this or another in the range. A generous sized bottle also, one of my new favourites.

Primark Oval Cosmetic Pads - My only go-to now for cotton pads since these ones won't fall apart on me mid way applying product to my face! £1 and the perfect size too, larger than normal circular cotton pads. Primark is slaying with their beauty range lately.

Zoella Hungry Hands - If the colour scheme and gingerbread packaging doesn't scream Christmas I don't know what does. I wish this scent was sold all year long though! If someone knows a gingerbread scented hand or body lotion available in the UK pleaseee comment below or message me on socials. Hopefully Zoe releases a similar range this year because I am here for it.

Let me know in the comments if you have a favourite from this months empties or what your favourite product is that you have right now! x
