Product Empties #2

danielle's beauty blog empties 2 skincare hair nail makeup bodycare

Ok, slightly ridiculous amount of empties here yet again, it never looks that much until I go to write the post about it!

Hair Products
hair reviews batiste garnier ultimate blends honey treasures shampoo

Batiste Dry Shampoo
Ah, good old Batiste where would I be without you! Perfect when you can’t be bothered washing your hair, I always have a bottle of this and a backup! It does leave a bit of a white cast if you don’t rub it in properly but for the price it is a constant repurchase!

Garnier Ultimate Blends The Strength Restorer Honey Treasures Shampoo
I did a full review of the Garnier Ultimate Blends range here and while I liked this shampoo it’s not my favourite and I prefer the other products in the range therefore I won’t be repurchasing!

Perfume, Nails and Makeup
product review sopa and glory eau de toilette opi nail envy kick ass concealer revlon powder

Soap and Glory Eau de Toilette
I’ve had this bottle for absolutely ages! The Mist you Madly scent from Soap and Glory which this perfume is based on is my absolute favourite smell. Seriously, if you’ve never smelt it before, do the next time you have a chance! Anyway, I much prefer the actual body spray to this and find it lasts all day on my skin. This perfume is slightly stronger and as I have both the Mist you Madly body spray and fragrance mist which are cheaper for more product I wouldn’t buy the perfume again!

Opi Nail Envy
I recently talked about this in my manicure post here so I won’t bore you anymore but I love this stuff, it makes my nails so shiny and I have since repurchased this! There is a tiny bit left in the bottle but I hate trying to tip the bottle to get the product to one of the sides to get it out and find it doesn’t give as even an application so to the bin it goes!

Kick Ass Concealer in Light
This is my favourite ever concealer and I have a post coming up on this soon! It has two shades to suit undereyes and blemishes plus a mini setting powder and mirror so perfect to keep in your handbag! Already repurchased!

Revlon PhotoReady Powder in Fair
I talked about trying to get this finished up months ago in this post and I have finally succeeded! I used to love this powder but it’s just not working with my skin anymore so I won’t be repurchasing!

Skincare
skincare review vichy serum garnier express avene  creamcarmex burts bees nuxe caudalie

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum
I absolutely love this serum, this is my second bottle of it! It is very cooling on the skin, hydrating, quite runny and the bottle lasts ages. I always get it on offer with at least 1/3 off the price so it works out quite reasonably! I haven’t repurchased this just yet because sometimes when my skin gets used to a specific product I find it stops working so if you have any recommendations for another hydrating serum please leave me a comment as I want to give this one a break!

Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Make Up remover
I use waterproof mascara daily and this oil based eye makeup remover is the best I’ve ever tried! It is so gentle on my eyes and removes mascara and other eye makeup so easily! Already repurchased and using!

Avene Rich Skin Recovery Cream
This is my second tube of this and I love this moisturising cream when my face feels like it needs a little TLC and I just want to use something simple that does what it says! It’s so gentle and dries in quickly! I haven’t repurchased but I will when I get a few other products used up!

Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm Pink Sheer tint
I am a massive lip balm user (as you will see from the next products too!) and because my lips dry out so easily I like to add a bit of a tint to them to stop them looking the same colour as my face! This is so moisturising and lasts quite a long time on me meaning it is a constant repurchase! I usually swap between the pink and the peach one!

Burts Bees Original Mint Lipbalm and Pomegranate version
Possibly my favourite lip balm of all time, I love the minty smell of the original and usually have one in my handbag, one on my bedside table and one downstairs at all times and I was quite impressed with myself I finished these two at roughly the same time! Don’t worry though I also had several backups to replace them with!

Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet
Got this in the Caudalie set I mentioned in this haul and I really liked the formulation and cooling effect it had on my skin and it dried in very quickly too. Probably wouldn’t repurchase as I don’t feel I saw much of a difference!

Vichy Idealia Life Serum
Again, nice serum but I definitely prefer the Vichy Aqualia Thermal over this and the sample size was so small I couldn’t see any difference to my skin. This was creamier than and not as runny as the Aqualia Thermal and I also think it’s a lot more expensive. Wouldn’t repurchase!

Nuxe Crème Fraiche
I really like this cream; it feels luxurious and is a nice treat at night time for some extra moisture! I use it a bit like I would the Origins Drink Up Intensive mask and already have another one of these, I think I got them in two separate beauty boxes so I’m sorted for now!

Bodycare

Nivea Smooth Nourishing Hand Cream
Like lip balm, hand cream is another product I cannot live without. The hand cream featured in this post is the one that sits by my bed while this one was in my handbag. I have repurchased this so many times I have lost count; it smells amazing, dries in so quickly and makes my hands so soft. I love it! I will repurchase this forever!

Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter moisturiser
This is one of my favourite body moisturisers scented with my second favourite Soap and Glory scent, Original Pink! It is so thick and creamy yet dries in quickly, moisturises really well and leaves a lovely smell on my skin! Already using a backup!

Soap and Glory Clean On Me Shower Gel
This is the shower gel that matches the scent of the Righteous Butter and I love using these together to get a really long lasting scent! I love the Soap and Glory shower gels, they are such good value for money, the pump is so handy, they lather up really well, don’t feel like they strip the skin and smell amazing! Forever repurchasing this!

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel
As this is limited edition I like to make it last! I love the smell of this so much it’s so sweet and I look forward to getting a bottle every Christmas :)

Apologies again for the ridiculous length of this post, I will not let my next empties stash get that out of hand! Have you tried any of the products I mentioned? What did you think of them? See my last empties post here!

    1. Get it, it's so good! Quite yellow toned but blends in really well! I don't think I'll ever stop repurchasing it, OPI Nail Envy or Burt's Bees! Xx

  3. I finally found someone who has empties posts as long as mine, hehe. I'm actually reworking mine because they always end up being too long but I want to keep them around because I myself always enjoying seeing what people have actually used up and enjoyed or not. :-)

  18. I love Vichy for skincare, it`s such a good brand. Their Night Detox Cream is my absolute favourite. I had no idea Soap and Glory have perfumes as well, might check them out. The body sprays are cheaper, but I am a weirdo who loves collecting perfume bottles.

  26. I love Avène, Vichy and Caudalie! I guess it's because those are the brands that my dermatologist always recommends, but also because the research backing up their products.

  28. Although I love Garnier's Micellar Water, I always find that my Benefit Magic Ink and my Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl survive it too easily. So I'll definitely consider the Garnier Eye Makeup Remover at some point, glad to see a little review on it!
