Beauty Empties: March

1 GARNIER Body Tonic Hydrating Lotion 400ml
Rebuy it? Yes, I already did so. Why? I think if you read my previous empties posts I don't need to talk about this lotion anymore. In case you have missed out on them simply check this post.

2 YVES ROCHER Nourishing Face Care Honey & Organic Muesli 15ml
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? This was just a sample size because the cream is new to the Yves Rocher range. I really liked that it is without paraben, colorant and mineral oil. The honey and muesli give it a really lovely smell and I felt it could hydrate my skin quite well. At the moment I'm so stuck to my Hema face care that I won't be buying another face cream anytime soon but I will keep this Yves Rocher one in mind. 

3 KNEIPP Anti Hornhaut Salbe (foot cream) 50ml
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? I've been having this cream for ages and never used it up because it was so good that I didn't want it to run empty. Weird, I know. Anyway I decided that it was time to use it up and I still liked the benefits. It perfectly cares for dry cracked feet and makes them look pretty after just a few days. It comes without preservatives, colorant, paraffin, silicone and mineral oil. However it also has 2 minor disadvantages which would be the typical foot cream smell you simply can't get rid of and the fact that it's really sticky and doesn't leave your skin feel soft after it has been absorbed. I will now empty my Allpresan foot creams and then see which one I repurchase.

4 PANTENE PRO-V Coloured Hair Protect & Volume Shampoo 250ml
Rebuy it? No. Why? My mum had bought this shampoo for me and even though I can't say anything about the color protection and even though I didn't notice any additional hair volume after using it, it had one major advantage: Since I dyed my hair it has been in need of a good conditioner in order to be soft but this shampoo almost had the same effect as a conditioner by making my hair really manageable. That was quite a positive and surprising effect but I still won't repurchase this shampoo as it slightly irritated my scalp and as for the moment I'm really satisfied with my Garnier Ultra Doux products.

5 BALEA Wohlfühl Makse (face mask) 2x8ml
Rebuy it? Definitely not! Why? This was the most disappointing product I've been using this month (maybe even the most disappointing product ever). In fact it's a face mask with almond oil and shea butter so you would expect great results. First I have been using it on my face but I don't really have dry skin and it left my face looking really greasy. So I thought I'd give it another try on my decollete which always looks quite dry. You're supposed to apply the mask and then let it absorb for about 10 minutes and wipe off the excess with a face tissue. It clearly says "no washing off". So I applied the face mask, which smells like a raspberry yogurt, and at first I thought it would be working great because I saw how it was slowly being absorbed, but when I wanted to remove the remaining excess the whole thing started "crumbling". I don't know if you see what I mean but you probably all know that feeling of using too much cream and not getting rid of it and rubbing until it starts falling off your skin in little pieces? Well that was what happened here and it felt and looked so ugly that I simply had to wash it off. Afterwards I could feel that my skin was indeed more hydrated than before but that definitely wasn't worth the mess. So even though I love about any other Balea product I've been using so far, this one will never ever be repurchased.

What have you guys been emptying this month? Have you had similar messy experiences with a beauty product before?
