Product Empties #1

<img src="productempties1.jpg" alt="product empties body hair makeup and skincare">

I've been saving up my skin care, makeup, hair care and body product empties for the last month or so and here are my thoughts and whether I would repurchase! Quite a lot to get through so I'll try and keep it short and sweet!

Bliss Fat Girl Slim 60ml
I got this in the Look Fantastic beauty box a few months ago and found it to be very liquidy – anyone else have this problem or it that what it’s meant to be like? Nice minty scent but unfortunately can't say I've noticed a difference on the area I applied it! Wouldn't repurchase!

Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Polish 300ml
This smells divine but if you are looking a scrub I highly recommend the Soap and Glory Pulp Friction over this, it's a bitch to clean out of the bath! I always get this in the sets they do at Christmas but would never buy it on its own!

Aussie Fresh Mate Body Wash 250ml
Picked this up on offer one day when it first came out and really enjoyed using it. Like the name says, it smells nice and fresh and like the Aussie shampoo it has an almost jelly texture. Would repurchase :)

Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream 300ml
I love this moisturising cream! It smells so fresh and clean and absorbs so quickly moisturising really well without leaving you feeling tacky. Already repurchased :)

Revlon Colourstay Makeup for Oily/Combination skin in the shade Buff 30ml
This is a constant repurchase for me, full coverage foundation at a reasonable price (esp when on offer in Boots or Superdrug). Already repurchased and using :)

No7 Translucent Perfect Light Pressed Powder
Again I've mentioned this in previous posts but this is one of my favourite powders for mattifying my skin! I love the fact I don't have to reapply or touch up during the day and I'm confident I won't get shiny. Best to buy when No7 has their £3 off vouchers going. Again already repurchased :)

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 30ml
I got this in a beauty box ages ago and only opened it recently, found it to be a lot drier in texture than I thought it would be so I used a lot of product each time I used it. Had a nice fresh scent and removed my makeup well but I got through this so quickly I'm not sure if it would be worth the money when there are other cleansers I like that last longer and are cheaper! Haven't repurchased but would in the future!

The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil 200ml
Speaking of cleansers that last a long time and are reasonably priced, this one from The Body Shop is just that! One pump does my whole face and neck and leaves it feeling super soft too. I haven't repurchased just yet because I have a few other cleansers I want to try but will definitely be making a repurchase in the near future :)

Eucerin Even Brighter Day Cream 50ml
I have quite bad pigmentation on my skin from acne scarring so got recommended this by the nurse. I actually used this at night even through it’s a day cream because it's so rich. I found it moisturised well but I didn't notice a big difference in the colouring of my pigmentation so for that reason I won't be repurchasing (although I do have a night cream to get through in the same brand!)

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Astringent Lotion Micro-Exfoliant 200ml
I'm completely on the fence with this one, I used it like a toner so after I cleansed and before I moisturised but can't say I saw any difference and easily replaced it in my routine with something different. Won't be repurchasing!

L’oreal Hot and Smooth Hot Straight Spray 200ml
When it comes to heat protectant I'm not loyal, this was a nice spray and it did the job but I will probably try something different next time!

L’oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo 400ml
Really like this shampoo it smells so good and doesn't weigh my hair down. However I can't say I noticed much thickening action but that's probably because I straighten the shit out of my poor hair so flatten any volume down! I would repurchase :)

Boots Sterile Saline 100ml
I thought I would include this as I wear monthlies every day (which I get from Specsavers) and I always run out of saline solution before my three month supply is up! I ran out of this extra bottle I bought too so had to repurchase (and I got the bigger size to be sure this time). Anyone else have this problem?

Apologies for this post being so long; I won’t let my empties pile up so much next time! Thanks for reading J

    1. It has such good coverage doesn't it! I always go back to it too even if it is so thick I have to keep it standing upside down! Xx

  8. That No7 powder is my holy grail because I get such an oil t-zone. You're the first person I've come across that also uses it!


    1. That makes two of us! I know a few people who use the No7 loose powder but not this one! xx
