July Empties 2015

Another month has gone by which means it's time for another empties post. I'm eternally grateful to whoever came up with this idea. It's helping me keep track of my purchases as well as getting rid of those things nearing expiry. Let's begin

Meera Herbal Hairwash Powder INR 50 for 80 gm

This had a lot of herbal and ayurvedic stuff written on it which made me grab it without a second thought. It did cool down my head initially but with time the cooling ability seemed to lessen. Also it left my hair like straw despite oiling before bath- all dry and tangled up. It lathers like crazy which makes me question the whole herbal thing. Never again. Stay away from this one.

Medicare Anti Lice Treatment Shampoo INR 45 for 50 ml

I picked up lice from a school going cousin a while back. It was a nightmare getting rid of them- they multiply like crazy. This shampoo helped a great deal. Hopefully will never have to repurchase again.

Himalaya Herbals Oil Control Lemon Foaming Face Wash INR 65 for 50 ml

I've been trying to go soap free from a few months. I use face wash only at night so I can clean my face well before sleeping. Rest of the time I use powdered oatmeal or besan. So its a big deal when I finish a bottle of face wash. This one has a weird smell which I didn't like but it cleans out all the oil from the face. Repurchase?  Nah

Nivea Total Face Cleanup INR 99 for 50 ml

I loved this one initially but started hating it when I was midway through the tube. There was a burning sensation on my cheeks and the sides of my nose every time I used it. Also I'm not happy with the ultra mild exfoliation it provides. Not buying again.

Vivel Summer Fair INR 50 for 25 gm

This is the second and final tube of Vivel cream I bought a while back. I know its marketed as a summer cream-which I think means light moisturizer- but this one does not even moisturize. Glad to see it gone. Not buying again.

Garnier Skin Naturals Daily Moisturizer INR 10 for 7.5 gm

Once upon a time I used to have oily skin but since I hit 25 it's been steadily getting drier. I bought a small sachet just to test it. This cream didn't suit me earlier but now its just great. Will get the full sized one.

Maybelline lip balm in Mandarin INR 99

Such a pretty colour but a dud of a lip balm.

Vivel Kokum Butter Lip care (free with Vivel cream)

This is the first time when the free gift was better than the original product. Loved this, has a pleasant smell and softens lips.

Vaadi Herbals Luxurious Saffron Soap INR 38 for 75 gm

Lovely smell. This is the first time I used a 2 toned soap- half of it is orange coloured gel, the other half is a peach coloured regular soap. Love it.

Ayur Rose Satin Fairness Bleach INR 30 for 20 gm

I almost never bleach my face. I bought this to discolour a few stray hair on my face which are getting steadily thicker. Throwing away almost the whole packet as it expired last month -used it just once


  1. Hi,
    Thank you for letting me know! I am happy that I could inspire at least one person.
    I loved the Vaadi soaps. Tell you what, they work even better as shampoo bar, Just give it a try for once.
    I got to try the Vivel Lip Butter.

  2. Really? I'll try Vaadi soap as shampoo and let you know.
    Thanks for stopping by.
