Product Empties #4


product empties ft nivea emma hardie soap and glory REN mane n tail tressemme maybelline sleek

Hi everyone! I have another empties post today and I can’t believe this is my 4th so I will get straight into it as its product heavy as usual!

body care empties soap and glory whipped clean on me nivea

Bodycare
Soap and Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter 250ml
At risk of sounding like a broken record, while I love Soap and Glory, I usually stick to my two favourite scents, Original Pink and Mist you Madly, as I’m not a huge fan of their other scents. This shower butter is scented of pistachio, almond and sweet vanilla and while I’m sure most people love it I get sick of it quite quickly! I got through this tube really quickly and definitely prefer the pump body washes which I think last a lot longer. This is however nicely moisturising as it has cocoa and Shea butters, grapeseed, sweet almond and macadamia nut oils and is great to use if you are shaving your legs! I wouldn’t repurchase this but I happily use it up when I have it!

Soap and Glory Clean on Me shower gel mini 75ml
This is one of my favourite scents! I regularly go through the big ones of these too but had a mini lying round in my back up supply (lol) so thought I may as well as use it! Constant repurchase!

Nivea Soft moisturising cream 300ml
This stuff is a constant repurchase for me! I won’t bore you to death because I've spoken about it a few times before but in short I love this! It smells fresh and clean and absorbs really quickly!

haircare empties mane n tail tressemme hairspray 24hr body REN

Hair care
Mane n Tail Shampoo 355ml
I picked this up around Christmas last year as I’d heard using horse shampoo was meant to give you really shiny hair. I found the consistency of this a lot like the Aussie shampoos and I didn’t mind the smell although it was quite different to the normal shampoos I use. I didn’t find any drastic difference in my hair while using this and it didn’t make it any shinier than other cheaper shampoos so I will not repurchase!

TRESemme 24 Hour Body Root Boosting Spray 250ml
I’m so glad I have finally finished this! That's not to say I didn't like this but this stuff was never ending and I'm currently working on finishing another product from the same range that I've had for ages too. I love the smell of this and it didn't weigh my hair down or make it greasy but as I have long hair with long layers nothing gives it volume so I don't think this did much! I would definitely repurchase this but I'd rather it came in a smaller size as I got a bit bored of using it constantly!

REN Oat and Bay Conditioning Shampoo 50ml
I got this in a mini REN travel kit and only got round to using it recently. As suspected I didn’t get many uses out of it but I’m glad I didn’t have more to use as I really didn’t like it. I wasn’t a massive fan of the smell and I found it very hard to lather in my hair so I wouldn’t repurchase.

TRESemme Salon Finish Freeze Hold Hairspray 250ml
I really liked this hairspray; it didn't leave my hair crispy or tatty and kept it straighter for longer when I sprayed it. My hair doesn't hold volume well in general but definitely did for a lot longer with this! It’s not my favourite scent and I’m not overly loyal to hairsprays so I will probably try a few before picking this up again!

skincare empties nivea emma hardie moringa garnier eye makeup remover

Skincare
Nivea Lotion 260ml
This is my first choice first cleanser in the evenings and is a habit passed on from my mum who loves the stuff too! I find it lovely and cooling on the skin and it does a great job of removing most of my makeup without dragging my skin. I will follow this up usually with an oil or balm based cleanser. Already repurchased and using!

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm 50ml
I love this stuff! I bought it in a set at Christmas but only started using it a few months ago and was surprised at how long it lasted me considering the tub is tiny, but a little goes a long way with this! I don't love the scent, it's quite orangey, but the balm is so soothing on the skin and used with a warm flannel leaves my skin really soft and well cleansed. I have a few sample sizes of oils and other cleansers to use up but I will 100% be repurchasing this in the future even with the price tag! Definitely one that’s worth the hype!

Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Makeup Remover 125ml
I've spoken about this before in another empties post too but I love this stuff! It’s so gentle and doesn’t pull my eyes. I find it to be really effective at removing my waterproof mascara and eye makeup because of the oil in it. It doesn’t burn my eyes which can be quite sensitive and get dry easily as I wear contacts daily! Already repurchased and using and if you are in the market for an effective eye makeup remover this is your guy!

makeup empties maybelline colossal mascara max factor clump defy sleek brow stylist collection lasting perfection concealer

Makeup
Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara
I really like this mascara and its one I consistently go back to when it’s on offer or I need the third thing in a 3 for 2 offer! The wand is big and bristly and gives me a nice amount of volume without clumping my eyelashes together. I featured this ages ago in one of my first posts about products I wanted to get used up because I have had it for ages (way longer than three months) but it just didn’t dry up and was making my lashes look so good! I decided enough was enough though and eventually put it to the side because the length of time I had it was getting a bit ridiculous! Will definitely repurchase!

Max Factor Clump Defy by False Lash Effect Water Resistant Mascara
False lash effect is my favourite mascara ever so I thought I would try this clump defy version for a change. This also featured in the post about products I was trying to use up because again, this would just not dry up and was making my lashes look so good I couldn’t bear to throw it away! It has a plastic spoon wand and really separated and lengthened my lashes. Will definitely repurchase!

Collection Lasting Perfection in Fair 1
I don't understand the hype with this concealer! Don’t get me wrong I do like it but I definitely don’t love it and prefer concealers such as NYX HD concealer and Soap and Glory Kick Ass over this! It is a great budget concealer which I use for spots more so than under the eye but I do go over my spots again with a second concealer as it doesn’t cover them completely. I do however have a backup of this so maybe I do believe the hype haha.

Sleek Brow Stylist in Dark
I really like this brow pencil! It has a spoolie on the end which is so handy (I lost the cap ages ago) and a slanted twist up nib that gives good colour payoff so you don’t need a sharpener. It’s quick and easy to use and give me defined brows quickly! I have already repurchased this but as you will have seen in this post, I have quite a lot of other brow products on the go at the moment so I haven’t opened it yet!

So there we go, another ridiculously long empties post! Sorry! Have you tried any of the products I’ve mentioned? What did you think of them?

  23. Ooh I really like the sound of that S&G shower butter. Even if the scent can get a bit boring after a while in-shower conditioner moisturising type products are so handy because I'm really lazy with moisturising my body, haha. Also I love that Garner bi-phase makeup remover. I picked it up on a whim a couple of weeks ago and have been SO impressed with how easily it removes waterproof mascara - it's definitely going to be a staple for me from now on.

  40. I should try out that Sleek brow pencil! I've literally been using the Anastasia Dip Brow religiously for almost 2 years now and I'm ready to try out something new. I actually liked the Mane N Tail when I tried it a few years ago though, but I didn't notice enough of a difference to repurchase yet either :s
