Product Empties #20

product empties danielles beauty blog

I’m finally back with a new empties post after putting a few mini versions up on Instagram and it feels good! Here’s what I’ve finished up recently!

product empties body nivea soap and glory

Nivea Smooth Body Lotion
I love this – it really does make my skin feel smooth, it smells so fresh and it comes in a massive container! I also get it when it’s on special in Shoppers as it can be expensive otherwise! Will repurchase!

Nivea Waterlily and Oil Body Wash
Another favourite and one that I’ve repurchased quite a lot since being in Canada as I love the scent and again, its affordable! Have already repurchased!

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
I got this mini in a GWP from Cult Beauty a few months ago and I’ll admit I didn’t love the scent at first though people seem to go crazy over it! I have grown to like it though and I recently got another bigger sample! It does make my skin feel super soft but I don’t love the glitter/sparkle that it gives off! Probably wouldn’t repurchase.

Soap and Glory Hand Maid
An old favourite and one that I didn’t want to finish because I can’t get it over here! It’s the best smelling hand sanitiser there is and it doesn’t dry my hands out at all! Will repurchase when I am home!

Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo
I can’t find my usual dry shampoos – Klorane and VO5 - in Canada so I’ve been trying a few different ones, the first being this offering form Herbal Essences. I really like the scent but it unfortunately leaves a white cast in my hair so I won’t repurchase.

TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo
Fortunately I got on much better with this one! Again, I love the scent and it rubs in really well leaving my hair feeling much fresher so I have repurchased a few times! It’s also super affordable when on offer at around $4!

Bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil
I got this in a build your own beauty box a few months ago and enjoyed using it over summer. It never made my hair feel oily or greasy and it always looked smoother when I used it! I would consider a repurchase in the future but at the minute I have a few other products I want to use up!

Nivea Lotion
This is probably my most repurchased skin product ever! I’ve talked about it loads on the blog but most recently here. Its my absolute favourite for a first cleanse as it’s so creamy and gentle and it does a great job of removing the bulk of my makeup while not breaking me out of casing a reaction. Forever repurchased!

Aurelia Miracle Cleanser
From one of my favourite first cleanses to a few of my favourite second cleansers! The Miracle Cleanser is so gentle yet effective at removing the last of my makeup and it smells so refreshing! I’ve never bought a full size as it’s so expensive but the minis last ages! Will always repurchase!

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish
I find this to be really similar to the Aurelia cleanser in scent and how well it cleanses. The Liz Earle one is a little thicker in consistency but it’s a lot more affordable so I will repurchase the full size again in the future!

Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser
I enjoyed using this for the most part except when it got into my eyes where it burnt! It looks like a clay but is very oily and effective at removing makeup however I wouldn’t repurchase as it’s not gentle over eyes!

Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion
I love this, its so gentle and cooling and perfect as a morning eye makeup remover. The little bottle has lasted me ages and I will repurchase in the future! 

January Labs Daily Brightening Tonic
Another mini from a GWP! I wanted to love this because the brands Restorative Tonic Mist is one of my favourite skincare products but sadly I just didn’t notice it doing much for my skin. It’s not a big enough sample to test properly and while I don’t hate it, I just don’t love it therefore wouldn’t repurchase.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist
I got this in the subscription box I mentioned earlier and I enjoyed the scent and cooling sensation it gave but I have other facial mists I much prefer so I wouldn’t repurchase this one!

product empties makeup estee lauder revlon anastasia

Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation
The Mac Daddy of foundation for me, I love this stuff! It gives amazing coverage and looks better the longer you have it on! I have already repurchased because I cannot be without it!

Revlon ColourStay foundation
My favourite budget foundation – and a great option if you don’t want to fork out for Estee Lauder! Again it gives great coverage and lasts all day and I have repurchased!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown
I’ve used up a mini of the Brow Wiz before and liked it apart from the colour match but this time the colour match was perfect It’s a super soft pencil and makes filling in your eyebrows so simple! I definitely want to grab a full size at some point!

Fenty Beauty primer and foundation in 150
A little sample I wanted to include – I can’t really say much for the primer because I never really notice anything with primers but I was super impressed with the foundation! Obviously I only got one days use out of it but it lasted all day and gave me really good coverage so I’ve been weighing up whether to buy or not! I would love to hear your thoughts on the foundation if you’ve tried it!

So that’s my first empties in quite a while and it felt good! The pictures are awful quality because I’m back to using my iPhone but we’ll roll with it! Let me know your thoughts on any of the products here!

  3. I love that Aurelia cleanser and finished another mini of it on holiday last month. I must repurchase! The Fenty foundation is hard work on my dry skin so I probably won't repurchase when I finish it! Great to see you back xx

  5. You finished a bottle of Double Wear? I've had mine for quite some time now and I am trying to use it up so it doesn't spoil but its taking me ages. I might need to put all my other foundations aside and focus on it more because I love the fuller coverage and feel of this on my skin xxx

  6. You finished so many things! I need to try the Estee Lauder Double Wear, can't wait to get a sample! xx

  14. I have never heard about the bum bum cream, but it sounds so fun! But you have tested so many skincare products, and that's amazing. I would love to test some of those too, since I haven't tested any of those never.

  15. Sorry Brazilian Bum Bum Cream?! Say I am now in love with that product name.
    Such a shame about the glitter. I would have loved to have bought it otherwise...

  16. I was interested in the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream months ago but I decided not to buy it because of the glitters!
    Have a lovely week xx
