Monthly Empties

Monthly Empties- August 2018

Hello! After months, I’m uploading an empties post in time which makes me genuinely happy because I’ve been neglecting my blog ever since I moved out. Anyway, let’s quickly review my trash and see what all I might repurchase!

Monthly Empties August Review

Also, if you’ve done an August Empties post recently please drop your link in the comment. I want to binge read empties today.

The picture above is missing a few products because I left them in the hotel. Have individual pictures of them though.

FRAGRANCE

1. The Body Shop White Musk Libertine EDT

Can’t find the price of it but I think it’s somewhere around ₹1000.

It was a 100 ml bottle and I’ve had this one since forever. This has a light floral-musk fragrance which lasts for just 4-5 hours. I added this in my very first project pan whose update I haven’t written ever. I realized that quite late so thought of letting it be.

Would I Repurchase? No. There’s a lot to explore.

2. Victoria Swiss Army EDT

I got the sample of this perfume from Smytten and the fragrance was extremely sweet, so not my type. It was quite small so I used to keep it in my bag and spritz it whenever needed.

I think pocket perfume is the best thing to ever happen to mankind.

Would I Repurchase? No.

3. Prima Donna Cotton Pads

Price: ₹160 for 2 packs (200 pads)

These cotton pads came in a pack of two, out of which one I used up this month. 1 pack has 100 pads and I think it’s one of the most affordable deals ever. I got them from Amazon. Have added the cotton in the picture just in case.

Would I Repurchase? I have 2 more packs but why not? Will soon place an order.

HAIRCARE

4. Khadi Natural Shikakai Hair Cleanser

Price: ₹145 for 210ml

This was a good mild hair cleanser for people like me who have a very oily scalp. The one thing that I didn’t like was – on days I skipped conditioner in hurry (or laziness *ahem*), this would make the ends very frizzy. But I loved that it didn’t cause any product buildup at all!

Would I Repurchase? Not now. Trying to explore to find THE ONE.

5. Oribe Gold Lust Restore & Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

This is my THE ONE shampoo. My hair felt so light and clean and soft and PERFECT. This was a sample having both shampoo and conditioner I got when I shopped from Beautylish. But this thing is crazy expensive and I can’t afford it ever. Also, it’s not available in India.

Would I Repurchase? I wish!

FACE CARE

6. Lotus Herbals White Glow Scrub

Price: ₹140 for 50g

I had included this scrub in project pan too to try to use it up but failed. So I realized physical exfoliators aren’t my thing as they break me out. Hence I used this as a body scrub, body skin could easily endure it and finished it off.

Would I Repurchase? No.

7. Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Scrub

Price: ₹51 for 40g

This one I bought months ago and didn’t use it then because it does absolutely nothing for blackheads or whiteheads. It’s a foaming scrub but I’d say it’s more of a facewash with mild exfoliating beads. Used it as facewash or sometimes on my body just to finish it off.

Would I Repurchase? NO!

8. Plum Green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer

This is my second favourite moisturizer for oily skin. It gets absorbed quickly and green tea is such a great anti-oxidant. It was a small sample size that I went through.

I have a detailed review HERE so check it out.

Would I Repurchase? No. It’s my second favourite as I told you!

9. Mirah Belle Neem-Haritaki Anti-Acne Toner

Price: ₹354 for 100ml

Got it for ₹99 during the sale.

I have raved about this toner in my last post. It is very good for oily, acne-prone skin. I didn’t enjoy the smell of it but it was very effective in cleaning my congested skin. Gets absorbed quickly and helps to keep oil at bay for some time.

Would I Repurchase? I have a lot of toners from Mirah Belle that I want to finish off first but if I get this one for sale again, I will repurchase!

BODYCARE

10. Mirah Belle Charcoal Body Wash

Price: ₹300 for 200ml

Got it for ₹99 during the sale.

This was a very mild body wash that cleansed skin thoroughly but didn’t dry out my skin. Again, the smell was a problem. The packaging was decent and it came with a pump dispenser.

Would I Repurchase? No. I like my shower gels to smell good. Really good! Or maybe have no fragrance at all.

It was a good month as far as empties are concerned!

Thank you for reading! 🙂

  1. Thanks for sharing! I had the same experience with the clean & clear scrub… if anything, it gave me worse breakouts than I started with! I’m a firm believer in sticking to just standard products unless you have really bad acne/etc. Because from experience, it only got worse using these products!
    The Mirah Belle packaging is so pretty, I haven’t heard of them before so definitely going to check them out!

    1. I agree so much ! Clean & clear is highly overrated… This Mirah Belle is an indie brand here in India. They have really good products for starters, but they need to work on how their products smell 🙊
