Product Empties #24

product empties review omorovicza skin accumax mabel + meg

It’s empties time again! And it’s a big one so let’s delve right in!

skincare empties January labs Dermalogica origins dr jart

January Labs Restorative Tonic Mist 
My number one favourite facial mist and one I am absolutely gutted is not being stocked on Cult Beauty anymore! I talked about it more in a recent forever repurchased post and I really hope they get another UK retailer to sell from as I can’t be without it! Its calming, hydrating and works so well with my acne prone skin – I have one back up left thank god! 

Mabel + Meg Lumilixir Vitamin C and Serum and Hyaluronic Acid 
One of my favourite serums and another one that features in the post I linked above! I usually alternate more expensive hyaluronic acid serums with more affordable but I can really feel the difference with this. A little goes a long way and it spreads so easily over my face ready for skincare/makeup. It brightens and helps with pigmentation and is just a general all-rounder! Will repurchase once I finish a few other serums! 

Laneige Cream Skin Refiner 
This is a really lovely product I used as a toner, it’s a very liquidy hydrating product and prepped my skin really well for its next skincare steps! Will repurchase in the future! 

Dr Jart Ceramidin
One of my favourite moisturisers, this is a must have! This is perfect for morning or night, full of ceramides and hyaluronic acid and works wonders on my combo skin! It’s amazing under makeup too, no primer needed! Have repurchased the full size! 

Origins Clear Improvement active charcoal mask 
I’ve been on a bit of a mask emptying frenzy so there are quite a few to get through! This really helps with clogged pores and blemishes and never strips my skin! Have repurchased the full size! 

Origins Original Skin retexturizing mask with rose clay 
Probably my favourite face mask of all time, this gently exfoliates while working on problem areas making my skin less congested and calmer! Already repurchased the full size! 

Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Cleanser*
This felt nice and worked well as a second cleanse or morning cleanser on my skin without stripping it but I much prefer the special cleansing gel to this so not a repurchase for me! 

Dermalogica Precleanse Balm*
While this is a lovely feeling balm and takes my makeup off easily it stings the living daylights out of my eyes so I wouldn’t repurchase! The pre-cleanse oil is much better and doesn’t have this issue! Both of the above products feature in my Dermalogica Winter Care Kit post! 

Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream
Drunk Elephant is a brand I don’t quite get the hype with even though a lot of people seem to love them! I’ve went through a few minis of this and some other products now and while they are nice products they don’t make me want to repurchase as I don’t think they do anything special! This feels lightweight and is a gel cream formula so cooling but I don’t find it amazingly hydrating so not a repurchase for me! 

Fresh Rose Face mask 
This is the second mini I have gone through of this and I originally think I was a little unimpressed but this time round I have come to appreciate its effects! It sinks in quickly (my skin literally drinks it up) and once rinsed off my skin looks glowy and more plump and feels hydrated. I don’t think I would repurchase the full size as its pricey for what I think are short term benefits but if I get another mini I will enjoy it again! 

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm
One of my favourite cleansing balms! This is a rich black oily balm that feels super luxurious on the skin, removes makeup easily and makes skin feel calm and clarified! I talk about it more in an old five things I’m loving post from three years ago where the full size was £7 cheaper wow inflation! I will repurchase in the future! With a discount lol 

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask 
Really nice lightweight mask that clarifies my skin but I prefer the Origins ones I talked about above so not a repurchase for me! I think if I had a bigger sample this would be a firm favourite though but obviously its pricey so I am staying away! 

Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel 
Have went through quite a few of these now and I love them! They work great to exfoliate, even though they are extra strength I don’t get any tingling but my skin does look clearer and more even! I won’t repurchase as I have a lot of other exfoliation products on the go right now but would reconsider in the future! 

bodycare empties reviews vaseline herbivore nivea soap and glory

Vaseline Intensive Care Non-Greasy Lotion
An old favourite, this sinks in quickly, moisturises my skin and smells really light and clean! Have already repurchased!

Nivea Caring Shower Gel Sun Original Scent 
This is a very nostalgic scent and I really enjoyed this but have repurchased one of the cream shower gels for now! 

Soap and Glory Mist you Madly Body Spray
My absolute favourite Soap and Glory scent and I panicked when I thought they had discontinued it! It seems they have just repackaged phew and I have repurchased already! 

Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Hand Food 
Not a fan of this scent but love hand food and I am already using the original pink scent as I had a backup! Great formula! 

Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter body moisturiser
One of my favourite body moisturisers as its so rich! I love this and a little goes a long way! Currently using up a few other moisturisers but I will repurchase in the future! 

Jurlique Softening Body Lotion Rose 
I liked the light rose scent of this and how lightweight it was! No plans to repurchase any time soon though! 

Herbivore Jasmine Glowing Hydration Body Oil
Really enjoyed this body oil, it felt very rich and hydrating and I enjoyed the scent! Little bit pricey for the volume but it did reignite my love of body oils so I repurchased a Versed one instead but would consider this in the future! 

haircare empties tresemme sachajuan

TRESemme Volumizing Dry Shampoo
The last of my stock from Canada! I am gutted as I don’t think I can get this in the UK? If you are able to get it, its very lightweight, smells good and leaves no white cast! Does a great job of letting me get an extra day out of my greasy hair too! Would repurchase if I could! 

Sachajuan Hair Repair 
I didn’t mind the scent of this and it made my hair feel soft but it isn’t a patch on the likes of Olaplex in my opinion as a treatment so I wouldn’t repurchase! It also contains dimethicone which correct me if I’m wrong but I think it coats hair and can tend to make it greasier quicker! 

makeup empties revlon colour stay foundation review

Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combo/Oily Skin 
This is my favourite affordable foundation! Its long-lasting and full coverage which is exactly what I look for and I have already repurchased! 

skin accumax review

Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Accumax
These also featured in my last empties post as I started taking them after coming off the pill, things were going well but after these ran out I went without for about 2 weeks and my skin is having a major freak out! I stocked up and have started taking them again but they are pretty expensive so I will really need to see some good results over the next few months of use to see if it is worthwhile for me! 

That’s it for another empties! I’ve actually accumulated quite a few products since I wrote this up too so will have another one next month I think! Let me know if you have tried any of the above products and what you thought! 

P.S. Sorry for the ridiculous amount of exclamation points in this post!
