I don't think I've done an Empties post in months! Embarrasingly, I haven't used up any products, which is just shameful. Today I accumulated some bottles I've had lying around and decided to write some mini reviews to tell you what I thought about the products. We have haircare, shower gels aplenty, and some mascaras as well. Let's see what I thought of them. 


Starting off with a random assortment of empties, I have a hair mask, a makeup remover, and a handwash gel. First off is the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Luscious Long Mask. I love the packaging of this one, which is just a squeezy tube, but it miraculously doesn't leak at all (gasp! shock!), which I really appreciate as I trek it around a lot. I wrote a review of this mask back in January, but I have to say my opinion has changed a bit ... while it's a good mask, I wouldn't give it 5/5, more like a 3.5. I thought it claimed to do too much and while it softened my hair, that's really all it did. Possibly this is because my hair was very damaged (I recently had it cut), but I really don't love it as much as I used to. Around 10€.
Repurchase? No, there are better drugstore hair masks out there.

We also have a favourite of mine here, the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. This blows every other micellar out of the water and has climbed to my list of favourites. Costing only around 6€ in my drugstore, it's a makeup remover I'll definitely repurchase. I really appreciate that it has no scent and that it doesn't irritate my eyes at all - I wear contacts and Bioderma, for example, wrecked havoc on my poor eyes. You can find it on Salma.
Repurchase? For sure.

Final product is the Stop the water while using me! Lemon & Honey Handwash. I love the name of this natural brand, and I really liked the product. The scent was fresh and sweet at the same time, though I was hoping for something more vanillary. The product is, however, too expensive for my liking at around 12€. That, for a handwash, is just too much.
Repurchase? No, too expensive.



Macara time! First we have the Makeup Revolution Amazing Volume. Amazing? Not really. Strongly disliked this mascara so I am getting rid of it - I don't even want to give to anyone, it's that bad. It might be inexpensive, but it's just not a good product - it did absolutely nothing for my lashes, not even give them color. Really disappointing, and I've heard the Amazing Length one is not much better. Price is around 3€.
Repurchase? No way.

Next, Couleur Caramel Volumising Organic Black Mascara. While I love that this is natural, it was so wet, it was impossible to use. I kept hoping it would dry out a bit, at least on my eyes if not the tube, but it failed to do that. It smudged like crazy, when applied and even after a couple of hours, so I deemed it impossible to use.
Repurchase? No, formula is too wet (but I like the brush).

I had a similar problem with the Balm Cheater mascara! I am really sad I didn't like this, because I love the look of this brand, their packaging is really cute and everybody seems to love the products. Sadly, this mascara was also incredibly wet and smudged everywhere. I literally had mascara on my cheeks, eyelids, forehead, everywhere. Impossible to use! I loved the brush, but what's the point when the formula is so wet? It's expensive as well at around 20€.
Repurchase? No. Formula is so wet it's impossible to use it.


Balea things! This is a brand that never disappoints, and these are some amazing products. Let's start with the Balea Shower Gel Coconut & Nectarine. Oh my sweet lord! This smells amazing, so refreshing, light, yummy & sunny. I want to use this for the rest of my life, but I get tired of scents easily. Price is amazing at around 1,5€.
Repurchase? Probably, but after a while because I grow tired of scents pretty fast.

Balea Shower Sorbet in Sunny Peach is another peachy scent, and I really like it! The hadnwash with the same name is amazing as well. I don't like this packaging too much though, as it's hard to get product out when you're nearing the end.
Repurchase? Probably not, but it was great.

Balea Creamy Oil Shower Exfoliator in Cinnamon & Apple is a wonderful product as well. Perhaps a bit wintery, though I used it in June and it was still great. I love the scent, which is a true sugary, cinnamony apple. The exfoliator is not gentle though, so don't be tempted to use it on your face! Works well on my body.
Repurchase? Probably not, I want the Garnier Oil Beauty one.

What's the last product you used up?

Že nekaj mesecev nisem pisala o praznih izdelkih, zato se mi jih je nabralo kar nekaj. Odločila sem se napisati nekaj hitrih ocen in vam povedati, če bi izdelek kupila ponovno. Pa poglejmo ...

Začenjam z Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Luscious Long Mask. Pri maski mi je bila zelo všeč embalaža, ki je pravzaprav tuba z majhno odprtino. Ker dosti potujem, me je bilo strah, da se bo zadeva polivala vsevprek, ampak to sploh ni bil problem. Maska mi je bila na začetku všeč, moram pa reči, da sem si s časom premislila in na žalost ni vse tisto, kar sem mislila. Žal je ne bi kupila ponovno, priporočila pa bi jo dekletom z manj zahtevnimi lasmi - zame je prešibka.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water bo gotovo stalnica v moji rutini, saj je odlična za odstranjevanje ličil. Kar me je še posebej prepričalo pa je dejstvo, da je vodica izredno ugodna - stane borih 6€ za kar 400 ml tekočine, kar se mi zdi odlično. Gotovo jo bom še kupila, lahko pa jo najdete na spletni strani Salma.

Nadaljujmo z Stop the water while using me! Lemon & Honey Handwash. Gre za gel za umivanje rok, pri katerem je sicer vse super - vonj je lep, embalaža praktična, gre tudi za znamko, ki se trudi varovati okolje, kar se mi zdi sploh super. Malo manj me je prepričala cena, ki je za tak izdelek previsoka - 10€ se mi zdi preveč za gel za umivanje rok, ko lahko enak izdelek kupim v drogeriji za 2€. Žal ga ne bi kupila ponovno.

Pri maskarah bom danes malo kruta, saj se bom vseh znebila, ker mi ne ustrezajo. Tako da niti ene ne bi kupila ponovno - na žalost. Začnimo z Makeup Revolution Amazing Volume, ki žal ni prav nič amazing. Ne razumem koncepta te maskare, ker resnično ne naredi čisto ničesar. Trepalnice niso po uporabi nič daljše, nimajo več volumna, še temnejše niso ... Pravo razočaranje. Naslednji maskari sta Couleur Caramel Volumising Organic Black Mascara in the Balm Cheater mascara. Z njima sem imela podoben problem - oba izdelka sta izredno mokra, do te točke, da je nanos pravzaprav nemogoč. Maskari se zelo razmazujeta, pravzaprav sem ob vsakem pomežiku nanesla plast maskare na zgornjo veko. Uporabila sem jih samo nekajkrat, nato pa upala, da se bosta s časom posušili, vendar se to ni zgodilo.

Balea je znamka, ki me res redkokdaj razočara, še posebej, ko pride do tuš gelov. Balea Shower Gel Coconut & Nectarine je eden izmed moj najljubših izdelkov, saj ima res čudovit vonj po kokosu in nektarinah, popoln za poletje. Gotovo ga bom še kdaj kupila. Balea Shower Sorbet in Sunny Peach  je tudi lep vonj, čeprav me je navdušil manj kot prvi. Bolj mi je všeč enak gel v obliki gela za umivanje rok, ki je res čudovit. Tega ne bi kupila ponovno. In za konec še Balea Creamy Oil Shower Exfoliator in Cinnamon & Apple, piling za telo, ki ima res omamen vonj, pa še odlično opravi delo. Cimet in jabolka sta ena izmed mojih najljubših kombinacij. Morda ga kupim še enkrat.
