Product Empties #12

product empties danielles beauty blog skincare haircare bodycare makeup soap and glory

I’m back today with another empties post! I've finished quite a lot of full size products and its Soap and Glory heavy! I’ve also slightly changed the time I post at which I’m not sure if anyone actually notices (I know I don’t) but I’m so busy with work at the minute it’s easier for me to promote the post in the evenings for the time being! Anyway, admin over, onto the empties!

product empties bodycare soap and glory nivea

Body care
Soap and Glory Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion
I have quite a few S&G products to get through so I'll try and do them quickly! This isn't my favourite scent but it's lovely and moisturising! I'm a fan of the packaging until it gets to about ¾ of the way down then the pump stops working and to get anything out you have to keep the bottle upside down and squeeze it out or stick your pinky in which becomes a hassle! This is one I always seem to get in gift sets but not one I would go out to buy!

Soap and Glory Shower Jelly Clean on Me
This is one of the newest lines in the shower gel range and after being a bit disappointed with it on its own, when used with exfoliating gloves it works really well to scrub the remnants of my tan off! The formula is really refreshing too but it’s more expensive than the standard S&G shower gels that I love so I won't be rushing out to repurchase! 

Soap and Glory Mist You Madly Body Spray
I am obsessed with this, it's probably my favourite scent in the entire world, it's so musky and understated and I absolutely love it! It also lasts all day on me and it's only £6.50! I already have a backup open and a mini in my handbag! Give it a sniff if you get a chance!

Soap and Glory Heel Genius Foot Cream
I feel like everyone has probably tried this at some point, it's a lovely foot cream but I do get a bit bored of it by the time I'm finished mine because it lasts so long! Again I probably have about 5 of these stashed away from various gift sets so won't need to repurchase for a while!

Soap and Glory Hand Maid Hand Cleansing Gel
I love this stuff and always have one in my bag! It smells so much better than standard hand sanitizers and doesn't dry my hands out at all! Already repurchased!

Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub
This is probably my least favourite body scrub in my least favourite scent! I don't find its effective at scrubbing my tan off (if you are just using it to scrub dry/dead skin it's probably OK) and I waste so much product scooping it out! I’m glad to be finished and can't wait to get back to my favourite Pulp Friction scrub!

White to Brown Body Wash
I got this in a gift set along with the tan last Christmas, it has the same scent of the tan which is quite nice but I didn't find it optimised my tan like it said it would and I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it again!

Nivea Invisible Anti-Perspirant
I usually use a roll on but I won this in an Instagram competition and loved it! I took it on holiday with me and it was so handy to just spray and go without having to wait for anything to dry in and it worked really well too! Will repurchase!

product empties skincare pixi fab biore lush garnier eucerin

Skincare
Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Makeup Remover
I won’t go on about this again but it really is one of the best eye makeup removers I've ever tried and works brilliantly to remove my waterproof mascara and eye makeup! I will continue to repurchase!

Pixi Glow Tonic
I absolutely love this toner! My skin always feel much clearer and looks smoother when I use it, its gentle enough to use every day and I have already repurchased a full size! It was also included in my forever repurchased post!

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads
I couldn't wait to be finished these pads. I love the concept of the pre-soaked pad but I really didn’t see a difference any night I used these and I don’t think they were strong enough for my skin! I won’t be repurchasing!

Eucerin AQUAporin Active Hydrating Care*
I have a whole post on this moisturiser when it was included in my skincare saviours but in short it is a lovely rich hydrating cream! I actually switched to using it at night even though it has SPF because it was too much for my oily/combo skin this summer but I think this would be great for dry skin types for the daytime! I have used a few different Eucerin moisturisers now and will definitely come back to them after a break to try some new products!

Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips
I don't use these often but I like having a pack at home for when my nose just feels too bumpy and clogged and nothing else will work! I love these for getting rid of blackheads and they work so well on my nose! Definitely a repurchase for me!

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub
I use this daily and it gives me the perfect base for lipstick! It’s an absolute essential for me and I already have another one open!

REN Vita Mineral Active 7 Eye Gel
I got this in a little try me set and really liked it, it was very cooling around my eye area and I loved using it in the morning to reduce any puffiness. I prefer the Eucerin one that was included in my last empties so I will probably repurchase that over this REN one when the eye cream I’m using at the minute is finished.

product empties haircare vo5 loreal elvive

Hair care
VO5 Plump it Up Dry Shampoo
I love this stuff and like the eye makeup remover, it features heavily in my empties so I won’t bang on about it! It leaves no white cast, smells lovely and gives a little volume to my usually lank hair! I bought four the last time I spotted it in a shop because it's so hard to find!

L’Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Shine Shampoo
I bought this hoping it would be a replacement for my beloved Nutri-gloss light shampoo that L’Oreal discontinued but this isn't sadly :( The light version made my hair so shiny but I just don't get that with this version. It smells basically the same but there is something missing so I won't be repurchasing!

product empties makeup benefit stay dont stray

Makeup
Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer
This mini lasted me absolutely ages! I loved it at the start but the older it got the less well it worked on my oily lids which is no surprise! Still, I wouldn’t buy the full size because I’d never get through it and the mini lasted so long and is great value for money!

So that's another empties done and dusted and I have a box half full ready for another one! Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?

  1. Haha, noticed your later scheduling but blogging should be fun not a chore so any time is good. I like reading your empties as it is a good mix of affordable items, not something that would break a bank so I can easily try whether the products could work for me or it is nice to see that there are some products we both like (I'm totally with you on Garnier eye make-up remover).

  2. Wow this is a huge number of empty products! And so many Soap & Glory, I am soooo jealous cause we dont have them here so I have to buy them when I am abroad!

  3. That is such a huge empties post! I honestly can't get into dry shampoos and I have a mini one from Amika which I like but had it for months and still have more than half full. I love washing my hair everyday even though it takes me forever to dry and style it and I find dry shampoo doesn't give me that squeaky clean feeling that I love.

  5. This post is definitely S& G heavy :) I agree with you on the FAB pads, they're nice but didn't make a visible difference to my skin, I liked them for my holidays though as they're gentle and fine to maintain my skin until I could go back to my stronger acid exfoliators and good for traveling. x

  7. You madly smells amazing, I really like it! I wasn't sure about Pixi Tonic, however, I think I will purchase it and give it a try, maybe I should get the smaller size first! I love Elvive shampoos and they discontinued one of my favourite shampoo, it is really annoying when companies do that without giving a notice!

  18. Wow it takes me ages to finish anything so my toiletry box is constantly full, I need to aim for one of these haha! I really thought the Pixi glow tonic might be overhyped but it's one of those products that I can see myself repurchasing forever too. I've tried the Nivea 2 in 1 which is quite good, but it does take a while on mascara, so I might give the garnier one a go next time :)
