Product Empties #27

product empties soap and glory ogx OUAI

Hi everyone and welcome to another bumper edition of empties! Not sure what happened but I was collecting these slowly then seem to have finished a bunch of full sizes within the last week so let’s get to it! 

bodycare empties versed soap and glory

Soap and Glory Clean, Girls Body Wash
Hands down my favourite body wash ever and also the best Soap and Glory scent! And one I also fear they have discontinued because after a quick search it’s not even showing up on the Boots website. They recently revamped the body mists and to be honest the new version of Mist You Madly (Clean, Girls scent) has changed ever so slightly but it’s very noticeable to me as a regular user and it doesn’t last as long. They seem to be introducing numerous new products and scents so I fear it’s the end for my favourite but I would repurchase this in a heartbeat as it feels so hydrating, smells incredible and is excellent value for money! Also don’t understand why they ever got rid of the pump on these too, OK rant over! 

This is such a beautiful dry oil that feels so nourishing and really does make my skin feel soft and supple. I like the scent though its’s nothing amazing but it is subtle and non-offensive and I love the spray bottle as it’s so easy to dispense! Also really affordable at £13.50! Would repurchase! 

Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream
One of my OG faves, creamy, moisturising and smells so fresh and clean, I repurchase this constantly! 

Marks and Spencer Magnolia Hand Cream
Pleasant hand cream, this was the last in a set of three. Nothing special so wouldn’t repurchase.

Cath Kidston Rose Hand Cream
The scent was a little too fake for my liking but this felt lovely and moisturising. Have other hand creams I prefer so wouldn’t repurchase.

Batiste Dry Shampoo and De-Frizz
I don’t know why I bother with Batiste, it’s been a few years since I last bought it and I saw this new packaging and the promise of the invisible formula so thought I would give it another chance but I shouldn’t have bothered. It’s the same old formula that doesn’t soak up any oil and leaves a white cast and the scent is so old fashioned. Hopefully I have learned my lesson, will not be repurchasing! 

OGX Keratin Oil Shampoo
Really nice, nourishing shampoo that felt very hydrating and smelt good! Can’t say much for the anti-breakage claim as I use so many other products after shampoo to help with that haha but it’s a nice affordable sulphate free shampoo I would repurchase! 

Klorane Anti-Pollution protective conditioner
Super fresh smelling conditioner (I love the peppermint!) This is quite lightweight for a conditioner and I do prefer something thicker as my ends are so dry but it doesn’t weigh hair down and does make my hair feel softer. Klorane products are so gentle I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend but I won’t be repurchasing this. 

KMS Free Shape
I used this as a hairspray and ended up quite liking it but after a quick google it doesn’t seem to be easily available in the UK anymore. I would repurchase but it’s not the end of the world that’s it’s not available (unlike Clean, Girls bahahah)! 

I got this in a Cult Beauty GWP a while back and recently picked up the full size that’s how much I love it! Unlike most scalp scrubs I have tried, this one actually makes it to my scalp and really cleanses it from product build up. It’s sulphate free but gently foaming and leaves my hair so shiny and not dried out at all! £15 for a huge tub that will last ages and I couldn’t recommend more! Already repurchased! 

skincare empties good molecules January labs alpha h ren

This is a super gentle alcohol free toner that contains licorice root extract, arbutin and vitamin C as well as niacinamide. With continued use it targets uneven skin tone, dullness and visible pores and I do think this made my skin brighter and helped with ongoing pigmentation issues I have! It’s also super affordable at $14! Would repurchase! Read more about Good Molecules here! 

Disciple Night Shift Cleanser 
Really luxurious cleanser full of fruit oils and AHA’s - it removes makeup with ease (it comes with a face cloth too) and I love the green packaging however it does seem to collect some product buildup around the pump making it sticky which I hate. I wish this was scented a bit more like the facial oils as that would really have sold it for me but my skin does feel calm and plump after use! At £27 I won’t repurchase.

January labs Moisture Balancing Lotion
I have lost count of how many tubes of this stuff I have gone through now and sadly this will probably be my last one as Cult Beauty stopped stocking it and there is no new UK distributor! I am gutted more so about their Restorative Tonic Mist as that is one of my favourite skincare products of all time. The lotion is a lovely lightweight hydrating cream that I use in the daytime as it’s great under makeup. Would have repurchased if it was easily available L

Boots Glow Brightening Mist
Purchased this on a whim when I was browsing Boots online one day and saw that Niacinamide was high up on the ingredients list. To be honest I used it as a makeup refresher during the day so can’t say much for the skincare benefits but it felt cooling and hydrating and at £4 I would repurchase again though I will say I find the scent quite sweet and I don’t like it!  

Containing tranexamic acid, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid this is a gentle serum that helps promote an even skin tone. It has a lovely formula that doesn’t feel tacky and it sinks in quickly working really well to target pigmentation. It’s $12 as well so amazing value for money and I would repurchase! Good Molecules have actually just sent me the updated nothing to hide ingredients list version of this so I am excited to get it back into my routine!

Can you tell I like Niacinamide haha? This serum also contains copper tripeptides and works as an antioxidant to help premature aging, retain hydration and enhance suppleness among other things! Just a great everyday serum to promote overall healthy skin and one I will repurchase! 

Drunk Elephant F-Balm Electolyte Waterfacial 
This is a heavily hyped overnight hydrating mask and one I just cannot get on board with. Every product I have tried from DE, I have felt very “meh” about and this is no different. Aside from their rep for bad customer service, I find the products overpriced and while this one did moisturise I didn’t wake up with thinking my skin looked or felt any more hydrated than when using a cheaper alternative! Would not repurchase! 

REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic
Another one that didn’t live up to the hype for me! I don’t mind essential oils or fragrance in some products but in this It feels a little too astringent for me. It also contains lactic acid and salicin to exfoliate, brighten and hydrate with aims to leave a smooth, even and energised complexion. My skin definitely felt smooth, brightened and energised after using this but I just don’t love it, wouldn’t repurchase! 

Malin + Goetz Revitalising Eye Cream
This is like Vaseline for your eyes but I really liked it! Perfect for night time as its quite thick and felt really hydrating! Fine lines were softened and I would consider getting this in the future when I am more concerned with deeper wrinkles round my eyes as opposed to the fine lines I have now as it’s on the pricey side at £68 for 15 mls (for reference this sample was 2.5ml). 

miscellaneous empties skin accumax OUAI

I’ve gone through yet another pot of these and I really just can’t tell what they are doing for my skin *shrugs*, I am going to make my current pot my last as these are expensive and my skin is just still always breaking out. I also realised that I should have been taking 4 a day then moving down to 2 a day but whatever way I read it I thought it was 2 then 1 so I probably shot myself in the foot by not taking the higher dose. If you have any other supplement recommendations specifically for maintaining good skin please let me know!

Obsessed with this scent which is the same as the wave spray and leave in conditioner if you have ever had a sniff of those! I don’t find this the longest lasting on my skin but I forgive it as it smells so beautiful! I talked more about it in this post and I have already repurchased! 

Congratulations if you got to the end of that! Let me know if you have used any of these up and what you thought!
