Empties Collective 2: Lush, La Clinica, Aveeno

Lush Buche De Noel & La Clinica Body Butter
I am imagining Vita doing a rubbing her hands with glee as she opens this post. Well I hope you opened this post! HAHAH.. I had these two things still sitting in my bathroom for ages. For those who haven't been invited to Casa de Lingy & Co. We have a small bathroom so I hate hoarding. And I also semi-hate it when my Mum does her big I will dump a ton of Unilever products that I purchase at staff prices to Casa de Lingy because she cannot get 1litre bottles of things there. Meanwhile these two things have been waiting for this blog post and I keep looking at them thinking I'll write when there are more. Well... there's never anymore is there!

Here are my thoughts ...

Lush Buche De Noel - I know what Lush is about and what it stands for. But seriously when I opened this box I thought... what on earth and how do I use this? It was a whole cake and I thought .. how do I use this? I had to turn to Twitter for help. I felt like I was rubbing seaweed and mud on my face to clean it. The truth is, this stuff is great! It left my face feeling clean and has gentle exfoliating grains. But there were little pieces of seaweed in there. Seaweed. I just can't go there!! Maybe I should look into the other more muddy sans seaweed concoctions from Lush next time. 

La Clinica Skin Relief Body Butter - I haven't had body butters in yearssss and I was sent this by La Clinica. The last time I used body butters was when Body Shop first came out with them. Do you remember the cocoa butter and Brazilian nut ones? My gripe with body butters are when you need them in winter, they are rock hard. In Summer you are scoop them out. I love the smell of this one which is a vanilla and rose hip scent. My personal preference is to use body lotion and not body butter. What about you? Anyone using butters?

Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief: This stuff works!
Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream - I took this along to Singapore and I have to say that I am thankful we did. When we were at Singapore Zoo. Yeah we totes lived it up like tourists at the Singapore Zoo and did Breakfast with the Orang Utans. D calls it.. I went to lunch there and then saw these things (Orang Utans) points to them in the picture. I asked if he knew what those things were, he said no. Doh... Anyway at the Zoo, there is a kids water play area.. well adults can join in too and really you would want to! Mick got burnt like the foolish white gwailo tourist that he was but had slathered on some sunscreen on the boys. Because it was so hot yet deceiving not as harsh as Singapore, we got a bit complacent. The boys had turned red and looked like a red heat rash. Cue my Mum giving us the most evil eye and we used this on them and kept reapplying. The next day the redness was gone but we had almost finished the tube as we only had 1/2 left when we arrived. Which meant my Mum sent me to Google and pound the pavements to see if I could get this item in Singapore!

So expect another like 6 months before another empties post. Meanwhile the non-beauty readers heave a sigh of relief.


  1. love an empties post. I am churning through the containers at the moment THANK GOD because my linen cupboard is still exploding with toiletries.

    1. TOO MUCH! It's scaryyy!!
      I have a big fear of hoarding stuffs!

  2. It's such a great feeling actually finishing beauty products! I get disappointed at the end of every month when I barely have enough to put together an empties blog post!

    1. OMG i loveeee finishing products!! YAYYYY get them outtttt

  3. I'm a serial offender when it comes to moisturising in winter, summer, whenever. I'm lazy. When I really do start to suffer in winter though, I literally douse myself with Johnson & Johnson Baby Oil just as i'm getting out of the shower. I dab dry and douse away.

    K xx

    1. Really? It's a habit with me already. I step out of the shower and I have to moisturise. :)
      Is baby oil too greasy?
