2018 Empties #1


If I am completely honest, a lot of these empties were strictly speaking finished in 2017… however, as it’s 2018, I thought I would start off with my first empties of the year. Once you’ve completely used up a product you really are starting to gage whether you love something or not… so let me tell you my thoughts on these products.

Body Shop Mixed Berries Lip Balm | This was one of the nicest lip balms ever, with a thick texture and a gentle tint, this was great for those no-makeup-makeup days. Sadly, this is a limited edition Christmas scent, but when it’s back next year.. I am definitely back on that ship!

Soap and Glory Makeup Remover | With the nicest, subtle scent of cucumber (which is fast becoming one of my favourite scents), this is actually a lovely makeup remover, possibly one of the better I’ve tried, and it’s only £6.

No.7 Intensive Hand Cream | Normally I try hand creams and I feel very meh about it, however, this one was lovely. It was thick, mositurising and it worked super well. I have a lot of hand creams to go through, but when I’ve finished them, I will definitely look back at this one.



Maybelline Brow Satin | My favourite brow product of all time. I feel like I should stop talking about this brow pencil, but I literally use it every day.

Neal’s Yard Remedies Deliciously Ella Facial Wash‎ | This was a lovely face wash, presented in lovely high quality packaging. At £17 a bottle it’s very expensive, but not ridiculous, and when my finances settle (I’m moving), I would definitely look back at it.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder | One of the best powders out there in one of the worst packaging out there (it literally smashes when you’ve barely made a dent in it). But, then again, for £3.99… you really can’t complain.

Body Shop Vitamin E Face Cream | I’ve only tried a handful of the Body Shops facial skin care, and I have to say I’ve never been let down. Everything I’ve tried by them has been such good quality, and for a reasonable price. Like handcreams, I have a million and one face creams to get through, but I will definitely keep this in the back of my mind.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation | This is a good foundation, and I like it… however, I do prefer the new Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation (even though the coverage is lighter), so I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Rose Gold | Batiste is definitely the best dry shampoo out there! I’ve tried a number in my years, and they always come out top. This is also my favourite scent – super sweet.

Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Moisturiser | I’ve never actually purchased one of these, I’ve always had them in beauty boxes. But you know what? I always get super excited when I see it. So, I will no doubt have another in the future!

Herbel Essences Uplifting Volume | For most of my life this was my signature scent, and it’s that shampoo and conditioner I ALWAYS gravitate back towards. It smells amazing, does great things for my hair, and I can always rely on it.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer | I actually love this primer, it makes my skin feel super soft and smooth ready for foundation application.

Rimmel Lip Liner in Red Diva | This is actually the second of these I’ve finished, and also the only lip liner I’ve ever finished. I refuse to wear a red without a lip liner, and this is both a classic colour and a brilliant formula.

What products do you always use up and repurchase?
