Empties #7


Inca un post aproape interminabil despre produse terminate. Phew !

Join me in another almost neverending bag of empties. 

Despre apa micelara de la Byphasse am vorbit aici.

Byphasse micellar water – review here

Spuma de ras de la Balea Buttermilk Lemon – a fost un lux placut, nu sunt genul care sa aiba nevoie de o spuma de ras speciala, la mine merge si spuma de ras a lu boyfriend sau un gel de dus. Dar e placut sa folosesti din cand in cand una care miroase a prajiturele cu vanilie si lamaie. Si e hidratanta, si lasa pielea grozav de moale.

Buttermilk lemon Balea shaving foam – I don’t fuss over my shaving products. I can use boyfriends’ shaving foam, or shower gel or soap. But I do admit it smells like lemon cakes and it was a nice treat. 

Cellu Break de la Avon – a fost o lotiune placuta, mirosul e generic, are un oarecare efect racoritor, de efecte nu vorbim, ca nu cred ca mai baga nimeni botul, nu-i asa?

Avon Cellu Break lotion – generic smell, a refreshing, cooling effect, sinks in ok, but let’s not dandy and say it actually gets rid of cellulite, ok? 

Gel intim de la Nivea – nu mi-a placut, mi s-a parut ca ma irita. Si atat.

Nivea intimo – didn’t like it, personal opinion, might be a good product, but I got irritated from it. Enough said. 


Acetona de la Cien – nu ma huliti, dar nu-mi place. Ma enerveaza modul de dozare, si nu mi se pare o acetona chiar atat de buna, am incercat altele chiar mai ieftine si mai bune.

Cien nailpolish remover – don’t throw stones, but I don’t like it. The dosage system is annoying, I have to waste time trying to get the product out. I know lots of cheaper and better nailpolish removers. 

Exfoliant pentru maini Planet Spa Avon cu ulei de masline – inainte de manichiura, sau pur si simplu cand mi se parea ca pielea de pe maini devenea aspra, ma masam cateva minute cu acest exfoliant, il clateam, dupa care aveam cele mai moi si catifelate maini ever. Acum ca s-a terminat voi recurge la o reteta homemade, vreau sa vad daca are aceleasi efecte. A fost un produs foarte bun. Ah, si cand te masai cu el pe maini, avea un efect de incalzire.

Avon Planet Spa olive oil hand scrub – before you paint your nails, or when your skin gets a little scruffy, massaging this in makes all the difference. I has a heating effect as your work it in and then you rinse it and you’re left with the most silky hands ever. Good product.

Parfumul de la YR il arunc pentru ca nu-l suport. E cel mai sintetit miros de capsuni intalnit de mine vreodata. In apararea mea, nu l-am cumparat eu, l-am primit, si am incercat sa-l folosesc fara sa-mi blestem ziua dar nu am putut.

I wish I had a catapult to throw this Yves Rocher perfume because it STINKS. This is the most synthetic strawberry smell I’ve ever sniffed. I tried to use it, but I shall save myself some gagging and let it go. 

Crema de netezire si indreptare Nivea am folosit-o foarte mult la un moment dat cand aveam parul lung. Are un miros pe care nu stiu cum sa-l descriu dar mie imi placea la nebunie, hai sa-i zicem miros de salon, si nu indrepta parul chiar ca o placa, dar il netezea si hidrata destul de bine. Mai e crema de cateva folosiri acolo dar am parul scurt acum 😦 si nu-mi mai foloseste la nimic .

Nivea straight &easy antifrizz leave in balm – I used this a lot when I had long hair. I like the smell, can’t describe it, but it had that hair salon smell. It dose not replace a hair ststraightenerut it does smooth it out and hydrate it. I have short hair now so I will throw it away 😦 . Until the next long locks, farewell. 


Gelul de curatare cu miere si arnica de la Bioten e preferatul meu – il voi recumpara cu siguranta – curata foarte bine, abia daca e o urma de machiaj cand insist si cu lotiunea tonica, e putin cam apos si se termina repede, dar e spumos, bland si are un miros placut, si nu are parabeni.

Bioten cleansing gel with honey and arnica – I love love love this. It cleans the skin really well, it’s a bit watery and I run out of it quickly, but it’s lathery, gentle and has a pleasant honey smell. And it’s cheap and paraben free. Win win. 

Daca tratamentul de la Dove Oil Care mi-a placut, samponul a fost meh. Inca nu am descoperit un sampon Dove care sa-mi placa, cine stie, mai e timp.

Last Empties posts you saw that I liked the Dove Oil Care treatment. But the shampoo is meh. I haven’t found yet a Dove shampoo I like. Oh well, … 

Gelul de dus Adidas Fresh Cool Mint a fost grozav pentru vara -are un miros subtil de menta, combinat cu ceva mai moscat, as zice ca mie mi s-a parut a fi un parfum aproape barbatesc (ceea ce nu m-a deranjat deloc), racoritor, proaspat. Recomand pentru dimineti grele.

Adidas Fresh Cool Mint shower gel – for rough mornings. It was great in the summer time. It has a minty smell combined with something musky, so the result is a fresh, almost masculine smell, which I rather enjoyed. 

Crema de fata Garnier Essentials cu struguri – nu v-ati saturat inca de gama asta, am avut produse din ea in ultimele trei postari.  Crema o cumpar constant datorita mirosului fresh, pentru ca e o baza buna de machiaj, pentru ca e usoara, textura crema-gel, si e hidratanta, dar nu grasa. Si pentru ca da, o mai zic iarasi, sunt nostalgiiiicaaa. 🙂

Garnier Essentials grape face cream – I know, I know, it’s the third time something from this range makes its appearance in my empties posts. But yeah, again, nostalgia is a bummer. I keep buying this because it smells fresh, it’s a good makeup base, it’s a cream-gel texture, it’s hydrating and not heavy. 


Bourjois deodorant cu ceai verde – altul care se lauda ca rezista 72 de ore, nu-mi dau seama de unde vin oamenii astia cu astfel de numere. Asta cica e si waterproof. La mine nu  rezista mai mult de cateva ore, poate 2,3, plus ca mirosul a devenit deranjant, miroase fresh la inceput, dar dupa 2 ore vreau sa va zic ca miroase a “trebuie sa fac un dus acum”. M-a dezamagit putin, asta e.

Bourjois deodorant with green tea – another one that lies about it lasting 72 h. What’s up with this 72 thing? Is it like a magic number ? Also, this one claims it is waterproof as well. Right. No. So, for me, this does not last more than 2, 3 hours tops. Then it changes the smell, from fresh to “I need to shower now.” And I am not a sweaty person. 

Parfum Pur Desir de Pivoine YR – floral, foarte puternic in primele minute dupa ce l-ai aplicat, aproape sintetic, si intepator la nas, apoi devine doar pudrat si floral, natural, ca un buchet de bujori, dupa care, in decurs de o ora nu mai simt nimic.

Pur Desir de Pivoine Yves Rocher perfume – it has a strong floral- synthetic smell when you apply it. After a couple of minutes it tones down and smells like a natural, lovely bouquet of peonies. And then, another hour goes by and I can’t feel a thing anymore. Damn my stubborn skin. 

Apa de flori de trandafiri de la Apimond – am mai vorbit de ea aici, a fost un produs foarte bun pentru vara – racoritor, proaspat.

Apimond rose water – I talked about it here

Lotiunea tonica de la Olay nu m-a incantat, am reusit sa o termin intr-un final, am lasat-o deoparte mai demult pentru ca aveam impresia ca ma irita – am folosit-o in ultima vreme si nu mi-a facut probleme, dar nu e nici ceva iesit din comun.

Olay toner – for all skin types – I didn’t love this, I managed to finish it just now, though I’ve had it for some time but at one point I suspected it was the source of some nasty spots. I used it now for about 2 weeks and it did not create any issues, but it’s nothing special, it’s just a bland ,generic smelling toner. 


Am aruncat o crema de maini de la Dulgon pentru ca e cam veche – tin minte ca mi-a placut foarte mult, ca era hidratanta si light si imi lasa mainile foarte catifelate – nu stiu de ce am uitat de ea si am ignorat-o.

 Dulgon hand cream – it’s pretty old by now so it goes in the bin, I do remember it was really hydrating and light and sinked in quick (none of that greasy hands monster), I just forgot about it. 

Am terminat o varianta mini a cremei Anew Clinical Luminosity – crema de noapte- a fost o crema cu textura de gel, foarte light, miros discret, aproape insesizabil, nu mi s-a parut ca a imbunatati cumva luminozitatea pielii, nu mi s-a parut ca ar fi facut nimic, de fapt.

Anew Clinical Luminosity mini size – night cream – gel texture, very light smell, didn’t dry, didn’t hydrate, didn’t do no nothing actually 😛 . 

Gelul de ochi Garnier roll – m-am chinuit sa-l termin – mi s-a parut ca usuca pielea din jurul ochilor si o face chiar mai aspra si mai lipsita de vitalitate.

Garnier roll eye gel – I really struggled with this one, in my opinion it dries out the skin around your eyes even more and makes it dull and just sucks out the energy out of it, really. 

Balsamul de buze de la Iwostin il arunc pentru ca e vechi – a fost un lipgloss mai mult, destul de hidratant dar apos, trebuia reaplicat foarte des.

Iwostin lipbalm– another oldie, and expired one. I remember it was more like a lipgloss than a balm, very liquidy texture, it did hydrate but it dissapeared very quickly off your lips and had to reapply every half an hour. 

Paleta de corectoare de la Elf o arunc pentru ca nu e buna de nimic. Corectoarele au o textura foarte greu de intins si acoperit ceva cu ele, chiar nu am ce sa fac cu ea.

Elf corrective concealer palette – I have no use for this. The concealers have a very difficult texture to work with, they don’t cover anything at all. 

Blushul crema de la Elf nu l-am terminat, l-am transferat intr-un alt recipient, pentru ca acesta sticluta cu pompa era absolut enervanta. La o pompare iesea destul produs cat pentru 5 aplicari si se irosea foarte mult. E un blush foarte frumos si pigmentat si nu am vrut sa-l stric degeaba.

Elf cream blush – I didn’t finish this, I just moved it in another more user friendly container. The pump released just too much product, and being a very very very pigmented gel, most of it was just wasted. You only need a tiny tiny bit to work with.
