Spring Clean: No Buy May & Project Empty


Hello babes!
A while ago I realized I just have way too much stuff, I had two beauty box subscriptions, a real shopping addiction and I always have two of everything for my college apartment and my parents house so I needed to do some serious spring cleaning!

The first decision I made was to end one subscription, I chose to keep my Birchbox!
Then I came across the hashtag #projectempty which really inspired me to finish some products! The last two months I've already saved all of my empties and this month I won't buy any beauty products or clothes! I still have some hauls to post but don't worry, I won't be shopping! ;)

I've also thrown away some old products and gave away these items:

* Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade (wrong shade)
* Mini Ciaté Nail polish (didn't like the colour)
* Sample Size Lancome Genifique Serum 
* L'oreal Bronzer
* Green Primer Catrice
* Fake Mac Blush in Prism
* Sample Size Benefit They're Real Primer
* Delhaize Care Natural Night cream, Day cream, Toner & Cleanser 

I'll update my empties every 1-2 months here on my blog, that way I'll be motivated to actually finish my products! I'll mention if I like them or not, or I'll link to another post where I mention it, but if you want to know more about the product please do ask in the comments! 

* Sensodyne Repair & Protect Toothpaste (liked it but using Paradontax now)
* Sephora Honey Sheet Mask (review on my blog soon!)
* Yves Rocher 1 minute Radiance Mask Sample (didn't like it)
* René Furterer - Shampoo Naturia Sample (purchased the full size on sale)
* Batiste Dry Shampoo (cherry, tropical & blush scent)
* HEMA Handsoap (not anything exciting, won't repurchase)
* Nuxe Nuxellence Detox Night Cream (purchased the full size on sale)
* LUSH Sex Bomb Bath Bomb (I love every bath bomb but I hate that little rose because it's squishy)
* LUSH Veganese Conditioner (not very nourishing but great for greasy hair)
* OPI Nail Polish Remover (have repurchase this a lot)
* Rituals Happy Buddha Shower Gel (loved this but won't repurchase, too many other shower gels)
* LUSH Grease Lightning (not sure yet if I'll purchase a full size)
* Primark Oil Balancing Facial Cleansing Wipes (these are amazing for their price!)
* Yves Rocher Repairing Body Butter (loved this but expensive for the size) 
* Bioderma Micellar Water for Combination/greasy skin (love love love this but I purchased a huge avène one that I have to finish first)

And 1 item that I wish I could have finished but it went bad before I could, the Bioderma Sebium Smoothing Purifying Care, even though it had only passed the expiry date by a week or so, pretty disappointed because I liked this moisturizer. 

Thanks for reading!
xoxo Christine

  1. Zoooooveel empties! Ik ben wel benieuwd naar het Bioderma micellair water nu, ik wil die zonnemist toch al, dus dan zal ik die er maar bij doen haha!

  2. Hi Christine! Could you please make a blogpost (or tell me) what your daily haircare routine is? I assume you have greasy hair, even if it's not so, I do (and very thin and flat). I'd like all the tips, tricks and good products I could use if you can help me out. :)

    1. Hey Sofie, I'm currently testing out a lot of different products. I try to use natural shampoo, very hydrating conditioner, a serum for my ends & every week I use a Lush hair mask! I don't use heat on my hair very often, that's a big tip! If I ever find the perfect products I'll definitely make a blogpost xx
