2018 Empties #3

Makeup, Skincare & Haircare Product Empties
Makeup, Skincare & Haircare Product Empties

I’m always amazed at the end of the month how many products I have truly finished.. it looks a little daunting all together. Basically I have a lot of half used products in my collection, and some full products in my collection, and I have been finishing them up, and then I come over here and share with you what I think about them.

I have filmed this as a YouTube video if you like those kind of things – which you can watch here

Herbel Essences White Grapefruit & Mosa Mint Shampoo & Conditioner | It wouldn’t be an empties of mine without Herbel Essences. However, this is not my favourite, the shampoo made my hair feel super gritty. I think the argan oil one out of this collection is much better – see blow

Soap & Glory Vitamin C Facial Wash | This is the face wash that never ended. I loved it because it was somewhere inbetween a face wash and a face scrub. It made my skin feel super fresh. And I will definitely get it again!

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Scrub | Where has this scrub been my entire life?! I loved it! Possibly my favourite face scrub ever.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream | Ditto with this. My skin literally drank this up like it hadn’t seen moisture in ages. And, actually, they’re not much more than the Body Shop Body Butters… and… I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think I prefer this!

B. Makeup Brush Cleanser | I use this to clean my brushes all the time. My favourite product from B and I hope they never discontinue it!

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes | I use this to wipe of swatches rather than use on my fave and they’re amazing.

Makeup, Skincare & Haircare Product Empties

111 Skin Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask | I mean this was fine. Not sure if really did that much, and so, not really sure it’s really worth the price tag. But good fun

Colgate Total Original Care | Oh colgate. What a classic

Garnier Skin Active Aloe Extract Refreshing Botanical Toner | I actually really loved this toner. Would definitely use it again in the future, love Aloe Vera in skincare!

GOSH Prime N Set Mattifying Setting Powder | This was actually amazing! It was super smooth and set my makeup very well. Had a tiny bit of flashback, but nothing crazy, and will definitely get it again

Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray | My favourite setting spray of all time, and I’ve actually just finished another since taking these photos… just love it. Does the job. Super cheap

Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel | My addiction to the body shop shower gels is real. They regularly have a few scents on sale, and I always stock up. Literally love!

Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Gel Wash | This is actually a really good basic but effective face wash. And it’s super cheap

Balance Me Flash Cleanse Micellar Water | Amazing for removing makeup off the face (like super super quick). But it stung my eyes, and my eyes aren’t particularly sensitive. So I would suggest using with a separate eye cleanser.. therefore not sure I would bother again

Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Body Buttercream | The formula of this is lovely and light (almost like a sorbet) but super hydrating. However, I really don’t like the smell…. it’s too… nutty… just a personal perference

Cowshed Lippy Cow Natural Lip Balm | Ok. This. Never again. I used it all up, thinking my lips were just getting dryer because of the insane amount of snow and cold weather we had. Then I moved onto something else, and realised it was all this. My lips just really didn’t get on with this.

Nip + Fab Mascara | One of those so so mascaras that are fine… but that’s about it

The Ordinary Natureal Mositurising Factors + HA | For some reason, while so many people love this, it just doesn’t work for me. My skin just doesn’t soak it up and so it just sits on top of my skin and feels heavy. So this one actually isn’t empty… but I’m chucking it out

Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer | My favourite under eye concealer ever! It’s actually not the palest, as it oxidises…which is annoying, but still a great product!

Body Shop Hand Cream in Strawberry | Body shop hand creams are on point. Love them!

Superdrug Vitamin E Eye Cream | I think this the best affordable eye cream out there! I’ve had so many of them over the years, and I will continue to repurchase

REN Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot | This was ok, made my skin feel fresh.. can’t really say about the keep young thing as I’m only 22… and so… still pretty young myself

Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rosie Superfood Facial Oil | Once you get over the fact this is a very liquidy oil, it’s actually pretty good

Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser | This was amazing, I can see why people rave about these. I have a million and one moisturisers to get through, so I probably won’t every repurchase.. however, would recommend

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer | The best concealer for spot concealing ever. Any more that needs to be said? No

BLAQ Mask | Wow. This mask. It’s one of those black masks that dry and then you get to peel them off in one go. It made my skin feel super amazingly soft… however… it didn’t half hurt when you peel it off!

Filgoria Meso-Mask | This was fine. However, not sure it really did much….

Makeup, Skincare & Haircare Product Empties

Nip + Fab Glycolic Daily Cleansing Pads (x2) + Night Pads Extreme | I love these! Use them everyday, day in day out. Not sure I’d bother with the night pads again (didn’t think they were that different), but I’d definitely buy the day ones

Super Beauty Raspberry & Cranberry | My favourite cheap body scrub ever. It smells amazing!

Simple Micellar Cleansing Water | Just one of those cheap and cheerful products that just work… this and the Garnier ones (and the Soap and Glory is you want to spend a few more £1s..) are amazing!

Max Factor Smooth Miracle Primer | Oh I love this primer, and I’m sure going to miss it. Once I’ve used up some of my other ones, I’ll definitely repurchase

Garnier Ultimate Blends Coconut Milk & Macadamia 3-in-1 Mash | Considering this smells of coconut and I usually hate this… I actually loved this, and it made my hair so so so so soft. So… will definitely get it again

Herbel Essences Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo & Conditioner | As I mentioned above, this was definitely the better of the Herbel Essences shampoo. So much more hydrating

L’Oreal Elvive Phytoclear Anti-Dandruff Regulating Shampoo | Pretty averagely ok shampoo. Did the job…

Body Shop Almond Hand and Nail Cream | As I said before, love the Body Shop hand creams and this one is my fav!

Carmex Mint Lip Balm | I actually loved this lip balm! And I have so many carmex lip balms I’m now excited to use the rest of them!

Makeup, Skincare & Haircare Product Empties

The Range Orange Blossom Candle | This burnt weirdly down only one side… however, it smelt amazing and was super affordable… so not bad!

Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial | This was ok, it did the job, and I liked it… but I’m not sure I’m screaming from roof tops about it

L’Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara | I used to love this! Like serious heart emojis. But since the Lash Paradise mascara came out, I just think I prefer that one for those super full lashes… but this one is still pretty good!

Pureology Hydrate Shampoo | OMG I have been dreaming of this shampoo since I used it! It was the most luxurious thing I have ever used! I need it! (the full size and conditioner)

Bourjois City Radiance Foundation | Bourjois shade range is… excuse my French… s**t! So this shade only works for me when I have a tan. However, it’s an amazing formula and with it’s SPF it makes and amazing Summer foundation!

Maybelline Brow Drama Transparent Brow Gel | This was ok, bit of a weird wand shape (with like a bobble at the end), but it did the job and I can’t really say anything bad about it

Sure Cool Blue Anti Persperant | Wow, I’m ending with the most exciting product ever. Roll on deodorant… it just works don’t it… and wow, just wonderful English

And they are all the products I have used up over the last month. Phew! Hope you enjoyed. I love these posts and videos! I feel like it’s the best way to see what someone truly feels about a product!

Success! You're on the list.

  1. I’m not even kidding I can’t handle Colgate I feel like anything but crests burns the inside of my mouth. It’s so weird. Really pares down the toothpaste options lol.

    1. Oh wow. I’m anti sensodyne (can’t stand the taste) and I’m allergic to corsodyl… so it’s Colgate all the way for me (Or oral B… but it’s pricier) 😛
