Product Empties #22

It’s that time again! Here are my most recent empties from the last few months!

product empties reviews soap and glory nivea niod

bodycare empties nivea soap and glory review

Soap and Glory Clean on Me shower gel
One of my OG favourite shower products! This lasts ages and smells amazing! Forever repurchased! 

Nivea Shower Crème
Another shower favourite, Nivea is the best budget brand for shower gel and moisturiser for me! I love the fresh scent of this, it is forever repurchased! 

Nivea Soft moisturiser
Love love love this, huge tub for about £3-4, I repurchase this constantly! 

Soap and Glory Righteous Butter
This one feels a little thicker so more luxurious! Again, it smells amazing, feels very hydrating and I already have a backup! 

Nivea smooth care hand care*
This is PR from years ago that I left behind when I went to Canada and when I got home it still smelled good so I used it up! Love these and will repurchase when I finish up some more hand creams! 

skincare empties niod disciple Mario badescu review

Skyn Iceland Arctic Hydration rubberising mask with vitamin C
This was so much fun to use! It comes with a mixing kit that you spread on your face then you peel it off after its dried. My skin felt so plump after using this and nicely hydrated. While I would like to use it again, its £10 for a single pack so out of my budget! 

Mario Badescu Aloe, Herbs and rosewater facial spray
One of my favourite facial sprays, this is a handbag essential for me and I use it constantly while I’m at work! It’s super refreshing and hydrating and I just repurchased 2 in the sales last week! See more on how much I love it here! 

Disciple Balancing Mist
This is also a really lovely calming spray but at £15 for 50ml not one I will be repurchasing! I prefer the January Labs Restorative Tonic Mist and you get more product at 118ml for £18! Love the packaging and have refilled with water to use as a plant spray J

NIOD Sanskrit Saponins
One of my favourite morning cleansers! I love this one and have repurchased many times but held back at Deciem’s recent 23% off as I have too many other cleansers to use up at the minute but will repurchase in the future for sure! 

111Skin Y Theorem Repair Serum
A lovely little serum from a Cult Beauty goody bag that felt beautiful and smelled great but at £190 for 30ml one I will not be repurchasing! 

Burt’s Bees beeswax lip balm x2 
One of my favourite lip balms, I have lost count of how many of these I have went through! Hydrating and affordable and I already have a back up J

Dr Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream 
I absolutely love Dr Jart moisturisers, they are amazing! This is such a great moisturiser, it's so calming and also perfect for under makeup! I really like this but would repurchase the Ceramidin moisturiser over this! 

Caudalie Vinoperfect Serum
This is nice but it didn’t wow me – though I might be saying that as it’s a sample size! I wouldn’t repurchase but would happily use up another sample! 

makeup empties Estée Lauder Laura mercier revlon review

Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation
The OG number one best foundation in the world! I cannot get enough of this stuff and you can read more about why I love it so much here! Already repurchased! 

Revlon Colorstay foundation 
My affordable option to the above because I can’t afford to wear double wear every day haha. This is another long-lasting full coverage option that is usually always on offer in Boots too making it more affordable! Already using my backup! 

Laura Mercier translucent powder
Another favourite! This is my favourite setting powder, mattifying but not cakey and adds a little extra somethin somethin to my makeup! Already got a backup! 

NYX HD Finishing powder
Really enjoyed this but hit pan quickly so it didn’t last long and I prefer the No7 Perfect Light translucent powder for pressed powder. Would repurchase if on offer. 

Beauty Bakery flour powder
I was pleasantly surprised by this little sample too! It mattified better than I thought it would and even though I only got a few uses out of it I would repurchase if it had a good offer! 

Touch in Sol No-Poreblem primer 
I’m not a massive one for primer (I generally forget to put it on each morning) but this one has become a staple in my routine! It blurs pores, is mattifying and minimises the appearance of fine lines making my base look even better! I just got sent a full size of this recently through PR so have a back up ready to go! 

YSL Touche Eclat highlighter 
This took me ages to finish and to be honest I didn’t notice any difference when using it so not a repurchase for me! 

hair empties vo5 dry shampoo

VO5 Refresh Me Quick dry shampoo 
One of my favourite dry shampoos! It smells amazing and makes my hair look less greasy! Sadly this seems to be discontinued so this is my last bottle L

VO5 Give me Texture dry texturizing spray
This was a nice little extra touch on second day hair to make my limp locks a little better looking! Would repurchase but I think this is discontinued as well! 

empties 3d crest white secret deodorant eucalyptus

Crest 3D White 
Some Canadian favourites I can’t get anymore including this toothpaste lol best I found for gentle, effective whitening! 

Secret Clear Gel Stress Response 
Also gutted I can’t get this anymore! This is amazing on my sweaty pits and Mitchum doesn’t quite cut the mustard anymore!

Botanics Eucalyptus Pure Essential Oil
I got a diffuser shortly after I got home and have really been enjoying this oil in it. It’s so refreshing and stress relieving and I have already repurchased! 

the ordinary review retinoid alpha arbutin

Not quite finished 
The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion
Now some products that are past their sell by date unfortunately! This is a great budget option, super gentle but effective and I always wake up to plumper skin! Will repurchase in the future but using the Inkey List’s offering at the moment. 

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA  
Love this stuff but have neglected it since the end of summer and now the colour has changed! It’s great for hyperpigmentation and I love mixing this with Niacinamide! Will repurchase in the future but again going to try the Inkey List’s offereing first! 

Have you tried any of these products? Do you save your empties too?
