Empty #1

I really enjoy empty type of posts and from what I see, you like them too. Don't deny it now. =) I've been good, collecting my empty cosmetic bottles/tubes in a bag and here comes my first little empty post. 

Empty #1

1) Balea Seidenglanz Spülung Feige + Perle (~ 1,25 € for 300 mL)
Balea hair conditioners are my favorite. They're cheap (a little over 1 €), they smell nice, they're silicone free and they make my hair super soft and easy to comb. I use other conditioners as well, but there's always Balea in my bathroom too. This conditioner with figs and hydrolized pearls isn't one of their best, but it was still very good. I doubt I'll be buying it again because I prefer their Mango + Aloe Vera conditioner (orange packaging). Plus, I still have one full bottle to use. =) 

Ingredients: Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Isopropyl Palmitate, Parfum, Panthenol, Dicaprylyl Ether, Lauryl Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Niacinamide, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Glycerin, Ficus Carica Fruit Extract, Hydrolyzed Pearl, Maris Sal, Tocopherol, Phenoxyethanol. 

2) Ebelin Nagellackentferner (~ 0,60 € for 125 mL)
I got this nail polish remover for my darker/hard to remove polishes. It does the job, but it dries out my nails and cuticles a lot. I have another bottle to use, so I doubt I'll be buying it again soon (or ever). After comparing Ebelin (DrogerieMarkt brand) with Aveo (Müller brand), I found that Aveo does a great job of removing my polish without over drying my nails. I think I'll stick with Aveo from now on. 

Ingredients: Acetone, Aqua, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Parfum, Linalool, Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Cl 42051. 

3) Dusch Das Creme Dusche mit Feige & Rosenblüten Öl (~ 1,50 € for 250 mL)
Dusch Das shower gels are one of my favorites. They come in a bunch of nice scents (also limited edition ones), they're cheap and don't make my skin too dry or itchy. I like to change my shower gel often so I don't get fed up with the smell... I have a couple of Dusch Das bottles in my bathroom. All in different scents. 

4) Florena Handcreme mit BIO-Kamille
Florena is another Müller brand. I loved this hand cream because it made my hands feel nourished, but not oily or sticky. As I mentioned above, I get fed up with the smell quite fast, so I won't be buying this one soon, but I'll certainly try some of the other Florena hand creams. I can't remember the price, but I do know it's very affordable. 

5) Fair & Lovely Fairness Cream (~ 4,50 € for 50 mg)
My favorite day-time face cream! I already have another tube in use and two more for back up. My mother uses it and my sister as well. Hee hee, thanks to me. I don't need to say I'll be buying more of these, right? Here's the list of ingredients and my post on Fair & Lovely Fairness cream.

6) Balea Urea Bodylotion
This used to be my favorite body lotion ever. It made my skin so soft and nourished without the sticky feeling. It's also one of the most moisturizing lotions I've tried and the scent is very nice as well. I've already purchased another bottle of this lotion, but they changed the formula (unfortunately) and I don't really like the new version that much. It's just weird - it takes forever to sink into the skin and leaves a white residue. Too bad, I truly liked this one. The price was really low, I think it was about 2-3 € for 400 mL. 

7) Head & Shoulders Sensitive Scalp Care with Aloe Vera
Head & Shoulders helps me with my dandruff problem. I have a lot of different shampoos in use, but H&S is the one I turn to when all else fails. I use it every once in a while and combine it with other shampoos in between. It works! My favorite is the sensitive version and I'll certainly be buying it again. 

Thanks for looking and commenting!


  1. They changed the formula for the Urea Bodylotion? Nooooo!!!

    It was truly one of the best lotions I have ever tried (and yes, the smell was nice, too). I kept wanting to repurchase it, but never got around to it - now it seems I won't be doing that after all :( .

    Why change a good thing?
