Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend. Today I have for you a very much over due empties post. I haven’t written one of these in such a long time so I have actually thrown away quite a few things but here is what I have used up throughout September and I plan on starting to do these posts again monthly.
Vichy Pureté Thermale Micellar Water
I’m having a micellar water phase at the moment as I have gone off using oil for my first cleanse. This one is really nice, removes makeup pretty well and doesn’t sting the eyes.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar H Cleansing Cream
I bought this as I thought it was a cream cleanser but it’s not. It is quite creamy but it foams up slightly. I did like this even though it wasn’t what I was expected it to be. I found it quite gentle and helped to give my skin a deep clean. Since I’ve stopped using it, I have noticed that my skin is becoming a little congested so I’ll be buying this again soon!
Repurchase? Yes – soon!
Korres Bergamot Pear Shower Gel
I love the smell of this shower gel. It’s quite pricey but I bought a twin pack that cost the same as one on its own. It isn’t anything special but it’s nice if you like to spend a little more on body wash.
Bed Head Urban Antidotes 2 Shampoo & Conditioner
My hairdresser always uses these products on my hair and I adore the scents so I treated myself to these. I know the price puts people off but I bought these in October / November last year and I finished using them around August time so they really are worth the investment! If you’ve never used Bed Head products, they smell incredible and I have found them all very effective.
Fudge Iced Raspberry & Vanilla Styling Mousse
I really wasn’t very wowed by this product. I bought it to try and tame my flyaways but it didn’t really do anything, it didn’t even add volume. The scent wasn’t even anything special either but that may be as I’m more used to using Bed Head products as they are heavily fragranced.
La Roche-Posay Toleriane Fluid
Hands down my favourite moisturiser. It’s a light, basic moisturiser that just gets the job done. Now we are moving into the colder months I’m going to be moving back to the Ultra version of this as it’s a bit more dense and helps with the dehydration I get from central heating and air conditioning.
Repurchase? Yes in the spring / summer.
I wasn’t very impressed with this. It’s a light gel that has a slight tacky feeling after applying but it takes so long to sink in and it didn’t really hydrate the eye area much at all. I used it up but it’s not suited for the colder weather.
Oskia Renaissance Mask
I was gutted when I used this up! It’s s beautiful resurfacing mask and the scent makes you feel like you’re in a spa at home. The full size is so expensive, I don’t know if I can justify buying it but I’m keeping my eyes peeled for more sample sizes!
Elemis Gentle Foaming Facial Wash
Elemis make beautiful skincare and this wash is so gentle on the skin. It doesn’t have much of a scent and has a very little amount of foam to it which is what I very much prefer now.
Lanolips 101 Ointment Strawberry
I had been using a La Roche-Posay lip balm for a while but I was getting though them so quickly (like just over a month) so I decided that I needed a replacement. Lanolips is my saviour lil balm, it’s so thick and nourishing. You can apply a little throughout the day and I like to apply a thicker layer, like a mask, overnight.
Repurchase? Already have.
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra
This product has been on my blog so much! My all time favourite Foundation. Great coverage with great staying power, it’s the only foundation that lasts on me all day and actually still looks good by the end of the day.
Repurchase? Not at the moment as I have quite a few to go through.
NYX Micro Brow Pencil
Finally I have found a replacement to the Urban Decay Brow Beater! And this one is literally half the price. Love this brow pencil, very fine and precise and the colour lasts all day.
Repurchase? Already have.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
The best thing about this product has got to be the brush, it’s a pen but with bristles. I can’t find another one like it, if you know of one that is cheaper, let me know!
L’Oréal False Lash Sculpt Mascara
L’Oréal make the best masacras in my opinion. This one has an interesting brush that takes a little getting used to but it makes my lashes look huge!
That’s everything guys, what have you been using up lately? Take care and I’ll be back soon ❤
