Hello all, I've managed to finish relatively less number of products as compared my previous posts; mainly because I've been travelling quite a bit. Anyhow, let's get on with the empties.
Khadi Herbal Shampoo with Vanilla and Honey
INR 135 for 210 ml
I really enjoyed using this shampoo & this has got to be the best smelling shampoo I've ever used from Khadi Herbals. It's got Rockside Laboratories written on the side which makes me wonder if this is manufactured separately. Looking forward to repurchasing.
Patanjali Divya Badam Rogan Almond Oil
INR 100 for 60 ml
My second bottle of this oil which should tell you how much I love it. I've switched over entirely from Dabur Rogan Badam Shireen to this one. Will be repurchasing after I whittle down my stash.
Sunsilk Soft and Smooth Shampoo Sachets X 2
INR 3 for 7 ml
My favourite shampoo! Although I think it's overpriced- you can get the same amount of shampoo at 1 Rupee as well. Will be buying forever.
Aloe Veda French Lavender Luxury Shower Gel
INR 180 for 300 ml
Smells fantastic & completely non- drying. Have one more variant of this one.
Vedic Line Lavender Gloss Serum
INR 200 for 100 ml
I really want to like this product but it gives a very shiny look on my oily skin. Maybe that's what they mean when they say "Gloss Serum". I can see this working amazingly well on people with dry skin. Despite the soothing fragrance, no repurchase.
Brihans Green Leaf Aloe Face Wash Gel
INR 90 for 120 gm
I loved the effect of this face wash though it doesn't remove makeup at all- not even compact. It somehow didn't break me out even though it didn't clean as well as I wanted it to. What gets annoying after a point, is to scoop out the product with your hands EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Will repurchase if the packaging is changed.
Nature's Essence Walnut Foot Scrub
INR 150 for 100 gm
This was part of a Manicure & Pedicure kit which I got as a free gift with purchase. It's so mild, ain't nobody's foot getting scrubbed with this thing. I used it on my face & it provided mild exfoliation at best. Also, it's a gel scrub & doesn't get washed away easily. It smells amazing like all Nature's Essence products but no repurchase.
Cemera Cuticle Oil Polish Cleanser
INR 50 for 50 ml
I bought this thinking it was from V.O.V. Quite similar but leaves a white residue on nails after removing polish. No repurchase.
Vaadi Herbals Luxurious Saffron Soap
INR 38 for 75 gm
I'd bought 6 of these. SIX. Took forever to finish + the fact that I hated the smell didn't really speed things up. This one's the last of the lot. HAVE TO STOP BUYING IN BULK.
Vaadi Herbals Heavenly Lavender Soap
INR 38 for 75 gm
Smells divine. Will be buying this & the Kiwi soap for all eternity.
Cinthol Deostick in Aura
INR 69 for 40 gm
Oh God! Where do I begin? Nothing works in this product. It does not control sweat. Nor does it deodorize. And the tube packaging has got to be the worst one I've ever seen. I'm all for innovative packaging but not when it makes using the product that much more difficult. Hated this one. Going back to my trusted Sure Anti- perspirant. Am so glad I didn't buy several of these as I usually do.
Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream
INR for 19 ml
I've been using this as a night lip balm for well over a year & yet it was showing no signs of finishing. By the time I finished using this, even an ardent caramel lover like me hated the smell of it. One more thing I'm glad I didn't buy several of. Definitely something to be said for restraint while buying new products, eh? No way in hell!
As always discarding a few more makeup items
Faces Makeup Brushes
INR 495 for set of 5 brushe
Bought this when I was starting out in makeup. Super scratchy bristles but nothing better was available back then. Goodbye!
Maybelline Colorsensational in Hooked on Pink &
Maybelline Colorsensational in Blushing Brunette
Don't remember the price
These were my most used lipsticks at one point. As of now, I've several similar looking lipsticks & I'm soooo over minor shade differences. Plus, these happen to be 6 years old. My lipstick drawer has a little more room now.
Do you track your empties? Does it help in curbing excess shopping? It works for me till I reach the last face wash et al....then I go on a mad spree & stock everything back up. Sigh!
