Empties #15

Hi! *smiles*

This one is a 15th Empties post. I am very happy that I find joy in writing these kinds of posts, and hopefully this joy will spread to different kinds of posts (make up, hello?).

I managed to save quite some empty stuff, but now I just had to post it, because I don't like empties accumulating on my desk :P. 

Let's start at the beginning, I took photos by categories. The first one is "Stuff I use during/after a shower".

More after the jump!

GARNIER Olia Hair Balm (price of the dye ~ 5€)
This one I actually got when I purchased a hair dye. And since I purchased three hair dyes in a span of a month, I still have two left. It is okay, tho nothing too special.
Repurchase? No, but I have three more to use. 

BALEA MED 15% Urea Body Milk (2€)
I am not a fan of body milks, but I am trying to use them religiously. Especially during the colder months, when my body skin is dehydrated. It gets better during summer, but let's not be too lazy :P.
Anyway the scent of this milk is fantastic - very fresh and clean. And the effect is lovey, super smooth skin for a couple of days after use. I totally recommend it, also to get rid/help of those small annoying acne on the body (orkeratosis pilaris).
Repurchase? YES! 

PALMOLIVE Caipi Coconut Shower gel/milk (2€)
I totally bought it because of the smell. And so I could use it to make bubbles in the kid's bath. He enjoyed them, but it burned when water got into his eyes o.O. So I started using it exclusively for my showers. I'm not too impressed, but it did its job well. My skin was somehow dry after showering with it. So, not worth it. 
Repurchase? Nope.

LEE STAFFORD Poker Straight Conditioner (2€ on sale)
I got this conditioner because I loved the other one - for blonde hair or something. That one made my hair silky and soft. This one? Nope, not a chance. It didn't make my hair any straighter or softer. Just.. nothing, lol. I also had a lot of trouble getting the balm from the bottle. It's not a squeeze bottle (I managed to crack it this way!), and shaking does nothing. I was disappointed, because it has a lovely design. It just needs to be a squeeze bottle! I am also not a fan of the scent. 
Repurchase? No. 

Okay, then the second picture / category "Stuff I use for my face" - with an added bonus of a cuticle oil. Whoops! 

ALVERDE Clear waschcreme (2€)
I wrote about it in the previous post. And I said I will repurchase it forever, but this may change because now I'm exclusively using micelar waters to clean my face - and it makes a difference.
Repurchase? Maybe.

BIODERMA Sebium Global Cream (free sample)
I got this sample from my dermatologist and I was sceptical at first. But after a couple of days I saw that it doesn't break me out in any form and I'm happy. It has its smell, which isn't really unpleasant, and it feels great on my skin. I am a huge fan and can't wait to purchase the full bottle.
Repurchase? Yes!

ESSENCE Caring Nail Oil (2€?)
A nail oil that I like to use very much. It smells delicious (like apricots) and add a very needed protective layer to my nails. But I can't remember if oil thins the nail or not, I must check my book. I think it does, so I'll stop a bit with the oil.
Repurchase? Yes.

It's hilarious that most of the stuff from this post is 2€! :D But anyway I loved this product very much, so much that I took the stopper out and used the very last drop of it.
Repurchase? Probably - would like to try out some different products. 

The next category is "nail stuff", in which I totally forgot to include the previous oil ;).

FING'RS UV Builder gel (18€)
I purchased this gel in the set (which contains a dehydrator, some files, cleansing pads, oil stick and a plastic pusher). The gel alone, and in a bigger package is about 15€, if you are lucky enough to find it. It is very hard once it cures and I think it's a great one for nail extensions. 
Repurchase? Already have.

ESSENCE Sealing Top Coat (2€)
I used this top coat many times, but then I kind of forgot about it. After it got to about 1/3 of it, it started thickening, so I added some thinner drops. After a while it thickened again and I decided to toss it. I still think it's a very good top coat!
Repurchase? Probably, just want to try some new ones.

ESSENCE Quick Dry Top Coat (2€?)
I liked the design and the claim that it's quick drying. Well, you know what? It's not, lol.
It takes quite some time to dry, but I liked the shine it gave my nails. So there's that.
Repurchase? No.

The next category is "teeth stuff", or "how to keep your mouth clean", haha

DENTOFIT Whitening floss (1,5€ for 2)
Meh, I am not impressed with it. It's alright I guess, does its job well. But it breaks all the time and it annoys the f out of me. It is still better than the blue version.
So I may repurchase it.
Repurchase? Undecided.

JORDAN Midi floss (4€)
I can't find the best Jordan floss I had. It just doesn't exist anymore. But I found this one, that has a sweet taste (as my kid said), and did its job well. It's also thicker, so I need less flossing for a better result. Yes, it helps with my laziness.
Repurchase? Maybe.

AJONA Toothpaste (1.5€)
This one is a staple in my family, but now we're taking a short break from it. I am still in-love with the formula and got used to the taste. But we have too many toothpastes to use up before repurchasing. It's a great one!
Repurchase? Yes!

So this was it for this month's empties. I am impressed, again, with how many items I used up! :D
