Product Empties #7


product empties reviews haircare bodycare skincare makeup soap and glory nivea loreal


Hi everyone, today I’m back with another empties post and hopefully a shorter one than my usual essays when I do these posts!

bodycare empties reviews nivea soap and glory balance me sai-sei

Body Care
Nivea Creme Care Shower Cream
I picked this up on offer in Boots for £1 a while back and really enjoyed using it and changing it up from my usual choice of Soap and Glory! It featured in this post and is a lovely creamy shower cream that lathered up well and didn’t dry out my skin. Would buy again!

Soap and Glory Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion
First off I hate the packaging of this! The pump is missing from mine as after using about a quarter of the product inside it becomes useless and isn’t able to pump anymore. I think because the cream is so thick it just stops working but I either have to squeeze this into an empty tub or leave it sitting upside down so the product moves closer to the opening! It’s not my favourite Soap and Glory scent but it is a lovely moisturiser when you can get it out! I have a few of these to use up from sets I’ve got but it’s not my first choice when purchasing a moisturiser!

Balance Me Super Toning Body Polish
I hated the smell of this and I didn’t think it was a great exfoliator as it didn’t lather up well. I think I received this in a beauty box last year but I wouldn’t repurchase!

Sai-Sei Mineral Invigorate Body Scrub
I probably shouldn’t even have bothered including this as the sample was so small but I think I got this free with an order! The sample did about one scrub but it smelt lovely and refreshing however I wouldn’t repurchase as the full size is £28 and there are other much cheaper exfoliators I prefer!

skincare empties reviews nivea pixi glow tonic first aid beauty balance me

Skincare
Pixi Glow Tonic
I love this stuff! It featured in this post but in a nutshell it tones, smoothes and refines my acne prone skin and helps with my scarring!  This bottle has lasted me ages as I only use a tiny bit and I usually only use this either morning or night. I already have a backup of this and can see myself repurchasing it again and again!

Nivea Lotion
This has featured a few times in my empties posts and this post as it is a constant repurchase of mine! I love to use this as my first cleanse as it’s so gentle and really effective at removing a lot of my makeup!

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser
This wasn’t what I was expecting to begin with and I didn’t like it at first but I didn't mind it once I got used to it! It’s described as an airy cream on the back of the packaging and I would agree with this as its quite creamy and light. I used it as a second cleanse and then wiped off with a muslin cloth and it did a good job at removing the last traces of my makeup but I have other balm cleansers I prefer so won't be repurchasing.

Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm
This is a cleanser with oatmeal particles and I found for everyday use, this was a little too much for my skin. I did feel like I got a good exfoliation using this, especially round my nose but again I have other face exfoliators I own that I prefer so I won’t be repurchasing!

haircare empties reviews loreal garnier ultimate blends

Hair Care
L’Oreal Ever Strong Conditioner
I love this! It made my hair so soft, the bottle lasted ages and the scent is really minty and fresh! I will definitely repurchase this soon as I have a full bottle of the shampoo and its one of the best conditioners I've ever ueed!

Garnier Ultimate Blends 1 Minute Treatment
I really liked this, again it made my hair feel soft and I like that it's a quick one minute treatment although I sometimes just used it as a conditioner. I did a full post on the Garnier Ultimate Blends range here and this product along with the serum are definitely my favourites. The smell isn’t too overpowering and it’s on offer a lot so I will probably repurchase at some point in the future!

makeup empties reviews rimmel soap and glory no7 powder maybelline lash sensational mascara

Makeup
Rimmel Lasting Finish 25Hour Powder Foundation
I seemed to have run out of all my powders at once starting with this one! This was a powder I was impressed with for lasting power although I didn’t test it out for the full 25 hours! The only powder I ever hear raved about from Rimmel is their Stay Matte powder and I did go through a few of these back in the day but I hated it! I can’t even remember why but I would not pick it up again so when I saw this come out I was excited to give it a go! It lasted well and controlled my oil and I will probably repurchase in the future again!  

Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder
This used to be one of my favourites but I found towards the start of December it wasn’t working as well for me and I would have to touch up at lunchtime. I think this works best for me when it’s spring and autumn as opposed to winter and summer or the extremes of the seasons if that makes sense! I have already repurchased because it’s a lovely lightweight powder that doesn’t look cakey but will wait a while before using!

No7 Perfect Light Pressed Powder
This is my favourite powder and one I don’t have to touch up at all through the day! I raved about it in this post and in a nutshell, if you have oily skin you need to try this!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara
This was probably the most hyped mascara of 2015! I jumped on the bandwagon as Maybelline do some of my favourite mascaras including Colossal and Falsies but this did not knock them off their pedestal! While it did give me length and volume I hated how messy the opening/lid became and it was a little more clumpy than I like! Still a good mascara but I have others I prefer so probably won’t repurchase!

So that’s rounds up another empties! Thanks for reading! I’d love to know if you’ve tried any of the products I’ve mentioned and what you thought!

P.S. Off topic but if I still have your attention and you’re any good at the technical blog stuff maybe you’d be able to help me! Any idea why my LinkWithin widget isn’t working at the bottom of my blog posts for related content? I reinstalled after getting my new blog template in December and its in my layout but doesn't show up anything on my blog! Any input would be much appreciated J

  1. Love empties posts! I'll have to pick up that mascara soon! I've been wanting to try a new one. And I wish I could help you with the widget, but I'm terrible with that kind of stuff... I'm so sorry! I hope you can figure it out soon!

    1. I would! I know a lot of people love the Stay Matte but never got on with it. The Lasting Finish is described as a powder foundation but I just used it as a setting powder and it did a good job! Xx

  3. the rimmel foundation is one of my favs, it works so well as powder for a fuller finish :D

    1. You should see some of my other empties posts if you think this is a lot! A lot of people love that mascara and it's definitely not bad, I just have a few others I prefer over it! Don't think anything could be as bad as the one you tried that curled downwards Shireen! Xx

  6. I'm definitely due a Pixi Glow Tonic repurchase too! It's a shame you weren't that into Lash Sensational as the normal version is my holy grail mascara, though the waterproof is decent over summer xx

    1. Yeah everyone loves it! It's maybe 5th/6th on my favourite mascaras list! Pixi Glow Tonic is just the best, I'm usually so glad when I get the the bottom of a product but I never wanted it to end! Xx

  9. I don't think I finish that many products, I wonder when was the last time I finished a makeup product. I hardly use waterproof products but for rainy days, I regret not picking up the waterproof version of Last sensation. x

    I am not good at technical stuff(thanks to my fiance, he deals with the most of it) and I use wordpress so I don't know anything about blogger, sorry :(
