I want to keep this intro short and sweet or I will end up rambling on about how quickly this month has gone and how we are nearly half way through 2018. I love reading empties posts, they remind me of the old school blogging days so I thought I would share my empties from the month of May. 

I have tried every deodorant on the market and this is by far the best. It's not the cheapest, at £2.99 for 200ml but it does exactly what it says on the tin, eliminates odour, keeps you feeling dry and provides 48-hour protection. This deodorant contains aloe and vitamin e which help to soothe and condition the skin, perfect if you have sensitive underarms like myself. It is currently on a 2 for £4 offer at Superdrug so there's no better time to give it a go.

The ultimate handbag essential. Like the Mitchum deodorant, I have tried many lip balms and this is one of the best. For £2.69, you get a long-lasting formula that soothes cracked lips and leaves them feeling smooth like a babies bottom.

Elizabeth Arden Intense Moisturizing Hand Treatment

This product has been hyped for years and I have always wanted to give it a go but I couldn't justify the price. I was gifted this mini back in March and have since repurchased a full size, a student on a student budget bought a hand cream for £22. Okay, hear me out... If you are a gin lover, a friend of mine claims it smells like Bombay Sapphire, you could be walking around with hands that smell like gin. If you're not a gin lover, the smell is glorious, I am crap at describing scents but I would say it is somewhat citrusy? pepperminty? I think the word I am looking for is fresh, it smells fresh. It has a thick formula that doesn't feel greasy or sticky and even after you wash your hands, they still feel moisturised. If you are looking to treat yourself to a luxurious hand cream, this is one to try. 

I first tried this micellar water back in 2015 and have loved it ever since. It is gentle enough to use around the eyes and lips and is completely perfume free, perfect for those who have sensitive skin. It removes make-up, cleanses and soothes with no need for rubbing or rinsing. Simply squeeze on to a cotton pad and it distributes itself across the pad. The product removes makeup really well and can tackle the most stubborn of waterproof mascaras. Once all your makeup is removed it leaves your skin feeling soft and refreshed.  If you read my post with Fair Squared then you will know that I am on a journey to a cruelty-free routine. Now, I am well aware that Garnier is not a cruelty-free brand but I was unaware of this when I purchased this product a few months ago. However, I am yet to find a micellar water that compares, so if you have any cruelty-free recommendations then leave a comment or tweet me, @franciscarockey

I have been creating a skincare routine over the last few months (skincare routine post coming soon) and this is one of the cult products that I was recommended. My skin is clear but eczema-prone during the summer months. I have been using Glow Tonic for almost 2 months and I have noticed a huge difference in the texture of my skin, it is visibly brighter and a lot smoother. You know when you wake up in the morning and your skin feels tight and looks a little dull, this toner eliminates that tight feeling and injects a glow back into your skin. 

Last but not least, Pimm's. I was invited to a bbq earlier this month and I couldn't turn up empty handed, so I popped to Sainsbury's and picked up a few cans of Pimm's lemonade. I had never tried Pimm's before but everyone else in the alcohol aisle seemed to have their trolley full of it so I followed the crowd. I am not a huge fan of alcohol but this tastes like juice and I am all for alcohol that doesn't taste like alcohol.

What are your May empties?
