Product Empties #32


product empties review daniellesbeautyblog

I’m back with another empties today and I am much more pleased with my progress this time around! I feel like over the last couple of weeks everything has seemed to finish around the same time and I also have some almost empties almost ready so hopefully my next post won’t be so far away! 


haircare empties


Schwarzkopf got2b Dry Shampoo

I always enjoy these offerings from Schwarzkopf! They smell good, leave no white cast or residue and let me get an extra day out of greasy hair. Have already repurchased and am using the blue version!


ColorWow Dream Cocktail Kale Bionic Tonic

I cannot rate this enough – it’s a leave in, heat protectant treatment that doesn’t weigh my hair down at all, it strengthens brittle hair and leaves it feeling soft and healthy! My split ends are a lot less noticeable when I use this and I have already repurchased the full size! It also featured in my best beauty discoveries of 2020! 


bodycare empties review


Aveeno Daily Moisturising Body Wash

I was lucky enough to get this and the cream on prescription throughout my course of Accutane. I didn’t repeat the prescription of this as the bottle was huge and to be honest while I found it gentle, I preferred my Bioderma shower oil which I will talk about later! Not a repurchase for me as I generally prefer scented shower gels!


Aveeno Moisturising Cream

This has worked great for me during Accutane, it hydrates my skin all day long and sinks in quickly! I have a smaller back up that my aunt got me for Christmas but for now I have moved onto some other moisturisers in my stash as to be honest, even though I like it, I am bored of this one - unscented! Full review of the body wash and cream in my Month Three Accutane diary here!


Bioderma Atoderm Shower Oil

Obsessed with this, It feels luxurious, not greasy at all, and creates a mild lather. My skin always felt soft and nourished after using and this bottle lasted an age as a little goes a long way. I have a tendency to get dry patches on my legs and this, coupled with moisturiser, kept those at bay! It’s very lightly fragranced but no scent lingers and I will be repurchasing once I get through some of my stash in time for winter again! Full review of it and some other Bioderma products here!


Soap and Glory The Scrub of Your Life

I always enjoy this, Pulp Friction is my favourite as it lathers more but I prefer the scent of this one. Perfect for getting tan off and I usually use with an exfoliation mitt! I have two backups of this from gift sets over the years so no need to repurchase. To be honest, by the time I do have to repurchase it Soap and Glory will have probably discontinued it like they did with Pulp Friction and several of my other S&G faves *upside down smiley face*


Bioderma Atoderm Ultra Repair hand cream*

Really like this, it’s a lovely, lightweight cream that sinks in quickly and leaves no greasy residue behind! It’s very lightly scented and perfect for moisturising my hands after copious amounts of hand sanitizer while really helping some eczema patches on the back of my hands! Would repurchase!


Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Body Oil*

This is absolutely beautiful and I loved the roller ball applicator! The oil is so lightweight and I wake up to soft, supple skin. The bergamot and neroli scent is gorgeous and not overpowering at all! The full size is pricey at £49 but I would repurchase this as I loved it!   


skincare empties review


Cerave Hydrating Cleanser

A super simple second/morning cleanser that I absolutely get the hype with! It’s so gentle and hydrating and I talked about it more in my best skincare discoveries of 2020! Will repurchase!


Image Skincare Prevention+ Daily Matte Moisturiser SPF32

I’ll hold my hands up on this one and say it’s out of date but I couldn’t bear to throw it out without finishing it up! It smells the same and the formulation is the same but I have been using it on days I am staying in the house as I know the SPF rating has probably declined because I have had it so long. I absolutely loved this, it rubs in so easily leaving no whitecast and works so well under makeup too! I used this all summer long when I got it and was travelling in America and Canada and it protected my face so well. It’s expensive at £53 and in hindsight I could use a smaller tube as I found it difficult to get it all used up as I have other SPF’s to use too (this is a generous 91g). Anyway the smell makes me so nostalgic now and I would repurchase tomorrow but I need to use up other said SPF’s first! See it in this post too!


Dr Jart Ceramidin Cream

Another staple in my skincare collection. This feels like more of a balm than a standard moisturising cream but never leaves my skin feeling greasy. It’s packed full of ceramides and hyaluronic acid and locks hydration in all day. It also sits really well under makeup, I never have to bother with primer when I use this! The tube lasts forever and is worth the price, have already repurchased! Full review here in this five things I’m loving post!


January Labs Restorative Tonic Mist

I AM DEVATATED THIS IS FINISHED. This has been a staple in my skincare routine for the last five years and I have lost count of how many bottles I have used up! It’s refreshing, hydrating and really helps with blemishes! Cult Beauty have stopped stocking this and there are no other UK sellers and I don’t fancy the customs charge so I won’t be repurchasing right now but if you have access to it, get it! Full review here!

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser

I absolutely loved this cleanser! It is hydrating, makes quick work of removing makeup, turning from a cream to a lightweight oil and is so affordable! Will repurchase the jumbo size once I have finished up a few more cleansers! Read more about it in my current cleansers post!


Bioderma Sebium Hydra*

This worked really well for me while on Roaccutane, it feels lightweight but was hydrating enough for me while my skin was dried out and worked well under makeup! Its designed especially for people whose skin has been dried out due to dermatological treatments so this won’t be a repurchase for me right now as I have finished my course! Full review here!


The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

This is the second bottle of this I have been through now and I really like it! It’s a lightweight, watery serum that feels cooling and instantly refreshes my under eye area, reducing puffiness and dark circles. Will repurchase. Full review in this best budget skincare post!


Pixi Jasmine Oil Blend

I hate the smell of this so much I gave up using it on my face and finished it on my body. I must have an aversion to jasmine as I don’t love the scent of the limited edition elasticizer I talked about a couple of weeks ago either! Anyway, it felt like a thick nourishing oil but this definitely won’t be a repurchase for me!


Good Molecules Yerba Mate wake up eye gel*

Loved this! It hydrated and brightened my undereye and contains ingredients to slow the appearance of aging! I loved using it especially in the morning as it’s so cooling and helped with puffiness! I also love the fun, bright packaging! Will repurchase! Full review in this favourites post!


Lanolips 101 Ointment

One of the most nourishing and longlasting lip balms I have tried! This was a godsend while, you guessed it, on Roaccutane, and really helped with my chapped lips leaving me with smooth, flake free lips! Already repurchased and I also talked about it more in this Lanolips focus post!   


makeup empties review


Revlon ColourStay Foundation

I switched from my usual oily/combo formula to the dry version and I have to say it just doesn’t quite hit the same! It still offers full coverage, I just find it doesn’t last as well as I am used to and I found better foundations to use while my skin was drier (read about my faves here). Won’t repurchase this but will get my oily/combo version in the future again!


Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder

Another favourite and one I have lost count of how many I have gone through. It mattifies my skin without drying it out or messing with my foundation, adds subtle extra coverage and a pot lasts ages! Well worth its price tag but always worth shopping around for an offer and I already have a backup! Longer review here!


Becca Backlight Priming Filter

This has been a constant in my makeup collection for the last few years and I love it! I mix to my foundation to add glow (not glitter) and blur imperfections. I am so sad about Becca ceasing production and I already had a full size back up of this before they announced it but I am tempted to pick up another one! Full review in this forever repurchased post here!


IT Cosmetics Brow Power

I am so glad this is finished! Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great product, the colour match is perfect despite the fact it's universal taupe (one shade fits all) but this just lasted so bloody long I got bored and I prefer a thin nib wheras this is oval and thicker. Not a repurchase for me!  


GlamGlow Plumprageous Matte Lip Treatment

This was a lightweight matte “gloss”, not sticky and had a pleasing mint scent. It tingled a bit but I didn’t notice any discernible plumping! The packaging is fun but I wasn’t wowed by this and it didn’t last long on my lips. Not a repurchase for me! 


miscellaneous empties review


Cuticura Hand Sanitiser

Glad this one is finished too, not the most drying I have tried but not the most hydrating either and I found the little “pearls” in it didn’t always burst and get absorbed. Won’t repurchase!


Congratulations if you made it to the end! Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you thought!
