Beauty Empties: August & September

1 Yves Rocher Foot Beauty Care effervescent tablet
Rebuy it? No. Why? It was fun to use this for once and it also had a lovely smell but it doesn't bring you any clear benefits. Read more about it here.

2 Alverde Wildrose facial oil for dry skin (15 ml)
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? Using an oil and not a cream for my face was a really positive experience as it felt more natural and didn't leave my skin greasy but just moisturized it perfectly. The next thing I will try is to use coconut oil for my face but in case I don't like that I will surely come back to this wildrose oil.

3 Gilette Satin Care shaving gel (200ml)
Rebuy it? Yes! Why? I've had this shaving gel in my empties posts so often that I don't even need to talk about it anymore. All I can say is that I still didn't find a better one so rebuy, rebuy, rebuy...

4 Balea Repair+Care shampoo (250 ml)
Rebuy it? Yes. Why? Since I have discovered the Balea hair care products I don't want to use anything else. They work perfectly and are among the cheapest you can get in Germany. I don't know if I will stick to this very shampoo but it's a good alternative for my blond/brown hair and I liked it even better than the Balea Oil Repair shampoo I'm using at the moment.

5 Maybelline Dream Mat Mousse 40 Canelle (18 ml)
Rebuy it? No. Why? I've had this product for ages. When I was younger I loved these mousses and I rebought them several times. I still used this one until I found the Fit Me! series I'm so in love with right now. I must say that the mousse is great if you have problems with impure skin as it's quite covering but I disliked the fact that the choice of shades was quite limited (if someone of you can tell me whether they have added some colours by now or not I would love to know). The reason why I finally decided to empty this product is that it worked quite well with the beauty blender I had bought recently.

6 Wella Wellaflex hairspray (250 ml)
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? There's not much to say about this hairspray except that the finish was really natural which I liked. In fact I prefer the smell of the 3 Wetter Taft hairsprays so I will probably stick to those at the moment.

What have you guys been emptying lately? Have you found any products that are absolutely worth sharing or on the other side not even worth trying?


  1. Hi Carmen, thanks for the honesty in your reviews. The Balea hair care product sounds like something I would definitely like to use. I tried the dream matt mousse before, but preferred something less dense.Thanks for your kind words over at mine...hope you're having a great unwinding weekend!

  2. I'd love to try the oil, it inspires me. I also have used the shaving gel and I agree with you!:) Kisses! xo

  3. Some I use too but not the oil. Looks good.


  4. I'll try the gillette shaving gel! :)

  7. Ich muss unbedingt einmal dieses Shampoo testen, wollte es schon oftmals kaufen und vergiss es dann immer.

  8. Helloo!
    Toller Post!
    Ich muss sagen ich habe von Balea auch schon das Blond Shampoo probiert, aber da fand ich dann die Alverde Sachen besser. Trotzdem werde ich die Repair und care Serie auch probieren, wenn du es so gut findest, dann gebe ich dem noch einen Versuch!
    Nimmst du das Shampoo auch aus dieser Serie ?
    viele liebe Grüsse,

    1. ok ich hab gerade gesehen, da ist ja das shampoo, hat ausgesehen wie ein conditioner. Hast du da die ganze Serie ?
      viele liebe Grüsse!

  9. Satin Care is a fabulous product, I love it :)
