Product Empties #13

Product Empties haircare bodycare makeup skincare

Good evening everyone! After the last few weeks of constant haul posts, we’re getting back to normal now with a good old empties post and as usual its product heavy! 

product empties bodycare lush soap and glory grown alchemist
  
Bodycare
Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel 500g
I bought this in the Lush Boxing Day sale and I only finished it this week, how bad is that! I have a full review here but in short it’s my favourite Lush scent and I stock up every Christmas – though I do also have 2 minis to get through before this Christmas! So long-lasting, a little goes a long way and it makes my skin feel so soft, definite repurchase!

Soap and Glory Calm One Calm All Bubble Bath
This is my favourite liquid bubble bath and I find it gives a good amount of bubbles and a lovely relaxing scent. It leaves my skin feeling softer than usual when I have a bath with this and it’s a definite repurchase!

Soap and Glory Up-Toned Girl Firming Body Lotion
I bought this towards the beginning of this year as I was bridesmaid and had capped sleeves so wanted a little extra help for my arms! I really liked this, I’m not sure how much products that claim to firm and tone really do and sometimes think they may have a placebo effect but this was really softening and helped with the bumps I sometimes get on the back of my arms. It has quite a citrusy scent which wasn’t my favourite but I would repurchase this again!

Grown Alchemist Mandarin and Rosemary Leaf Body Cream
I got this in the Space NK sale a few months ago and I absolutely loved it! It has a really subtle citrus scent, sank into my skin really quickly and was very moisturising! I really like the packaging and loved that I got to use my wringer to get the last of it out! Would repurchase only in the sale though as it’s quite expensive at £18 full price and I've had other body lotions last me a lot longer!

Grown Alchemist Vanilla and Orange Peel Hand Cream
Another Grown Alchemist product, this time from a mini amenity kit but another product I really liked! Similar to the body cream this has a light citrus scent, it absorbed into my hands super quickly and it made them feel so soft! I think this size is £9 if bought separately so still a little on the expensive size but definitely one I would repurchase if I had a money off code because its one of the best hand creams I’ve tried!

Lush Dream Cream Hand and Body Lotion
I think this is a cult favourite from Lush from what I can gather! I went through it very quickly as it’s such a small pot but it’s not something I would repurchase. I didn’t mind the runny texture but found the scent a little bland although I can see why people with more sensitive skin than me would like it!

product empties skincare liz earle aurelia niod

Skincare
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
I remember having a mini version of this before and giving it a hard time in an old empties post because it didn’t last me very long. Well the opposite is true for this full size! It lasted an age, has a really refreshing scent, is super creamy and does a brilliant job of removing my make up! Definite repurchase once I’ve used up a few others I have in my stash.

Aurelia Miracle Cleanser
Another gorgeous cleanser and one that has featured before! I find this scent and texture very similar to the Liz Earle one but this is maybe a little creamier. It’s also a lot more expensive so not one I would repurchase even though I do love it! It pops up quite regularly in beauty boxes and this size is perfect for travelling!

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrate
This is one of those hyped do it all products and one I really did like! It’s a little more on the expensive side but a little goes a long way and it works well as a daytime moisturiser/primer for me! I probably won’t repurchase just yet as I’m trying to work my way through my stash but it’s one I would get again in the future!

REN Vita Mineral Daily Supplement Moisturising Cream
Another moisturiser and I found this one to be a little too rich for me for daily use and it took a little longer than I usually like to dry down before applying my makeup. I have oily/combination skin so I can see people with normal skin loving this! Wouldn’t repurchase!

NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1%
Where do I start with this one! Another hyped product and an expensive one too! This little dropper bottle is £38 and was worth every penny! As with all Deciem products there is a ton of science behind it but simply put this serum is meant to maintain healthy looking skin and target all forms of skin aging including texture, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores and lack of radiance. It comes with two glass bottles – one you pour into the other to activate the product and the product itself is a blue watery liquid dispensed from a dropper. I loved this; it sank into my skin so quickly and made my skin feel so smooth and like it says – healthy. I felt like I don’t break out as much when I was using this regularly, my skin looked more even and just better! This is on my Christmas list!

Starskin Foam Peeling Perfection Puff
This was a funny little product, I got it in a beauty box and it’s a reusable puff (up to 3x) that you put a few drops of water on then it foams up. It claims to smooth skin texture, deep clean, even skin tone and boost radiance and I really like the results after the first use! Because its reusable I left it in the packet on the windowsill but kept forgetting about it so when I went to use it again it disintegrated very quickly and didn’t do as good a job so it’s not something would repurchase!

WOW Luxury Facial Mask Treatment
This was my first foray into the world of sheet masks and man oh man did I enjoy it! Again, I got this in a beauty box as sheet masks are not something I would generally go out and buy because I prefer having things that give me more than one use! This however was half an hour of pure relaxation and I loved it! I've hear people complain that some sheet masks don’t fit their face properly but this was perfect, it came in two sections, one for the top and one for the bottom of my face. It’s described as an aqua gel mask and it was so gooey and refreshing it felt amazing! It recommends leaving it on for 20-40 minutes and when the time came I didn’t want to take it off! My skin felt so moisturised, plump and fresh! I’ve just had a look online and seen that these come in a pack of 5 for £99 so looks like I won’t be repurchasing but I highly recommend them if you have the spare cash!  

product empties makeup soap and glory max factor burts bees

Makeup
Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Translucent Mattifying Powder
This is a lovely lightweight powder that doesn’t make my makeup look cakey. However, it is nowhere near mattifying enough for me and I have to retouch several times a day! This is one I always dip in and out of so I’ll probably repurchase again in Winter when my skin generally feels a little drier!

Max Factor False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara
One of my favourite mascaras and I think I already have about 2 backups in my drawer! This gives lots of length and a wide eyed look which I love, I always prefer it a little when it dries out as it has quite a wet formula to begin with!

Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil
So happy with myself for finishing this! Don’t get me wrong I love it but I use it probably 3 or 4 times a week and have had it for so long I thought it was never-ending! It has a handy spoolie on one end and a super thin twist up pencil on the other end that is lovely and pigmented and easy to use! Will repurchase in the future!

Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Smooth and Soften Lip Balm
Another product I’ve had for an absolute age and I’m cheating slightly with this as it’s double ended and I’ve only finished one end! It’s a lip balm on one end and a screw up lip scrub on the other. I've had it for longer than I care to remember and while I liked the balm side the scrub is too hard and doesn’t work! I think it’s been discontinued but I wouldn’t have repurchased anyway!

Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
My old favourite lip balm! I love this stuff and have several on me at all times. Its moisturising, long lasting and I love the minty scent! Already repurchased and backed up!

haircare empties batiste philip kingsley

Hair care
Bataste Dry Shampoo
Always a dry shampoo in my empties post! Batiste isn’t my favourite brand for dry shampoo but I do love the Blush scent so this will always be a repurchase because I can’t always find my favourite V05 one!

Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence
I’m so glad to be finished this! It did a great job of making my hair soft and protecting it from heat but I wasn’t a fan of the scent so I’m glad it’s all used up now! Won’t be repurchasing!  

product empties miscellaneous

Miscellaneous
Cutex Ultra Cleansing Nail Polish Remover
The best nail polish remover ever and the only one I ever buy! Its gets my nail polish off so easy, already repurchased!

OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener
I am now onto about my fourth bottle of this stuff! It’s incredible, it makes my nails so strong and shiny and I have already repurchased!

Wisdom Tooth Floss
Bit of a random one but I chucked it into my empties box when I finished it anyway! I am a serial flosser and switch between a few brands but I really like this, it lasts ages and most importantly it gets leftovers out of between my teeth!

So that’s it for another empties! Let me know if you’ve tried any of the products I’ve mentioned and what you thought of them!

  10. That NIOD serum is in my wish list too but the price hurts my head and I have so much skincare to go through now that I can't justify purchasing it. Good to know that it works though!

  20. That Lush Snow Fairy wash sounds awesome! The Soap & Glory sounds great as a winter powder since most people don't get as oily then. I've been using some Deciem ordinary products and realllly like them so far! I haven't tried anything by Niod but now this serum is totally on my wish list. Thanks for the rec :)

  34. I HAVE to get the Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel this year. Everyone raves about it and I still haven't tried it lol! I love the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrate as well. My one has lasted me ages - I agree you only need the smallest amount. But I think I'm going to use it up soon, in these colder months my skin drinks it up. Oh and I'm obsessed with the OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener as well. It literally saved my nails, after I stopped getting false ones a few years ago. Thanks for sharing all your empties Danielle, love these posts.:D xx
