March Empties

A small empties post from me for March. I haven't used up many products, mainly because I have purchased new skincare, hair care and body care in the last month and have been really enjoying them. Will tell you more in later posts when I have formed a full opinion. 

March empties are:

GKMBJ Lactic Hydrating Shampoo & Chemically Treated Fortifying Honey Cream
I had never heard of this brand before receiving these sample sized products in a Lust Have It. I really enjoyed them, especially the honey cream - it smelt divine. I was surprised that these 30g bottles lasted me for around 3 weeks. I would look into purchasing these.

Arpelles Bath & Body Skin Detox Shower Gel
This is another sample from Lust Have It. The tube claims it has a wild berry scent - I didn't smell that. It was an okay body wash. I seem to recall the card in the Lust Have It box telling me it was a hotel brand. I can tell that after using it - nothing special and kind of generic. 

Avon Naturals Refreshing Shower Gel in Strawberry & Guava
I used up a watermelon version of this a couple of months ago that I really didn't like. This scent was much nicer - not as fake and it was actually refreshing. Otherwise it was a pretty standard body wash - the best bit was the price only around $2 a bottle. 

Clarisonic Sensitive Skin Brush Head
I realised recently that I have had my Clarisonic for around a year and it still had the original brush head on it. You are meant to change it about every 3 months, but then I only use it a couple of times a week - not twice a day like the instructions say. I figure then that I can get more than 3 months out of a brush. I however decided it was time to purchase a new one as the original brush was starting to fray and look a bit gross. I didn't want to use it on my face so a new one is now on my Clarisonic and it is back to getting the love it deserves. 

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and ate way too much chocolate (I know I did). Hopefully April is a good month and it doesn't get cold too quickly. I will probably be pretty busy with work but I have some heaps of products I want to share with you so I will try to post as much as I can. Even if they are just short posts (do tell me if you would prefer short posts more often).

What did you finish up in March?


  1. I'll have to give that shampoo/conditioner combo a go! It sounds lovely!

  2. Been hearing some great things about GKMBJ. I'm saving it for my trip to Singapore/Maldvies next month! :D

    I actually quite liked the smell of the Arpelles shower gel, although it didn't really do much for my skin either.

    I use my Clarisonic every day, and I try to change the heads once every 3 months only because it lives in the shower and I don't think it completely dries until I take the whole unit out and remove the head for charging. The whole idea of it being damp for at least a week at a time is kind of gross...
