Product Empties #43

product empties daniellesbeautyblog

Welcome back! I haven’t been very active lately but I have a couple of posts planned then I might disappear again, we’ll see! This is a positively tiny empties post for me but I did two huge batches just before I left for Canada in September and I mainly brought new/full products with me. That, as well as being on a bit of a roll with hauling lately, has meant it’s taking me a lot longer to finish products up that I would like. I want to start fresh in the new year though so it’s time to go through my trash!

Schwarzkopf got2b Dry Shampoo

One of my favourite budget dry shampoos – I brought this over with me from home and it works really well as absorbing oil and doesn’t leave a white cast! Would repurchase!


TRESemme Volume Dry Shampoo

A Canadian purchase (and one I had to check the batch code for due to a recall – read more here). Another nice budget option that absorbs oil and leaves no white cast but the recall has made me rethink purchasing this again! I do have another bottle to get through and my products were not affected so I probably will repurchase in the future.


Living Proof PhD Dry Shampoo

Pricey but the best dry shampoo I have used - like the more affordable ones, this absorbs oil and leaves no white cast but it also leaves my hair with volume and its effects last longer and I don’t have to use as much! I got a good offer on this during the Sephora sale so stocked up on a few more sets!

Nivea Crème Aloe Hydration Body Wash

Fresh aloe scent and this huge bottle lasted me ages! Already repurchase in the classic Nivea scent which I prefer!


Nivea Smooth Body Lotion

One of my favourite moisturisers, this smells so fresh and clean and absorbs quickly leaving my skin moisturised. Will repurchase! 


Morrocanoil Body Polishing Scrub

Tiny sample so only got a few uses out of this but I really enjoyed it! It smells luxurious and felt very hydrating due to the oils but there was also a good amount of scrub! Would repurchase if on a good offer!


Necessaire The Body Serum

My favourite Necessaire product though pricey for what it is! it’s a hyaluronic acid treatment that’s a gel formula and it absorbs into the body quickly. I do think this helps with extra hydration but while it feels luxurious, I don’t see a massive difference in this compared to when I use a budget HA so not a repurchase for me! See my Necessaire review here!

NIOD Sanskrit Saponins*

I really like this cleanser and have been through a few tubes now! It’s not a makeup remover so works best as a second or morning cleanse. It has a bit of a funky scent but works well to clarify and make pores look minimised and it doesn’t dry out the skin! Will repurchase in the future! See my full review here!


Nivea Double Effect Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

I have lost count of how many bottles of this I have gone through, it’s an absolute must have if you wear waterproof mascara! It removes it with ease and a bottle lasts a decent amount of time. It’s more expensive in Canada than the UK but worth every penny! I have found Amazon to be cheapest when purchasing it here and I already have a backup! See my full review and some other budget skincare picks here!


Murad Correct & Protect Serum Broad Spectrum SPF 45*

I really didn’t want to like this one as at £68 for 30ml it ain’t cheap but it’s gorgeous!

As well as offering sun protection this is also a hybrid product that has been proven to correct discolouration and prevent future hyperpigmentation! When I first rubbed it into my skin it felt a little on the greasy side, so I was worried and while it’s a white liquid, once it’s rubbed in, it left no white cast (I have fair skin for reference) and there was no pesky pilling! Makeup applies so well on top and looks smooth and it feels so hydrating as well as no stinging round my eyes! Out of my price range right now but I would love to repurchase in the future! See my full review here!


Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

A lovely lightweight, cucumber scented, balancing, non-drying cleanser. I have another mini to get though of this but would consider a repurchase in the future of the full size! See my fulll review here!


Bondi Sands Thirsty Skin Hyaluronic Acid*

One of the best budget hyaluronic acids I have tried! This is one of the thickest formulas I have tried, and I love the gel texture! It spreads easily, leaving my skin feeling soft and supple, locking in moisture and plumping and filling out my fine lines! As well as HA, it also contains glycerin and I will repurchase in the future! Read my full Bondi Sands skincare review here!


Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm

My favourite cleanser! The balm is so luxurious, it melts easily on touch, a little goes a long way and it spreads like a dream. It feels hydrating and balancing and removes heavy makeup as well as waterproof eye makeup with ease. The scent is uplifting and never stings my eyes and it’s well worth the money! Will repurchase! See my full review here!


Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

I think I had another mini of this before and wasn’t that impressed but this time round I loved it! It’s very lightweight so I think it would work better for me in the summer but saying that it did keep my skin hydrated overnight! Would repurchase!


Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Lip Butter

This jumbo sized lip balm leaves a gorgeous hydrating sheen behind and it lasts so long between top ups! It contains cupuaçu, acai and coconut oil and makes my lips feel so soft and I love the scent of the lip butter too – its not overpowering at all and once it’s on you can barely smell it! Will repurchase! Read my full review here!


Burt’s Bees Watermelon Lip Balm*

My favourite lip balm formula in a new scent to me but honestly, I prefer the OG mint, this is a little artificial smelling for me but it’s the same amazing formula that leaves my lips feeling hydrated for hours! Have already repurchase the original mint flavour again! Read my full review here!


purely inspired collagen peptides review


Purely Inspire Collaged Peptides

I’m finding it difficult to get a hold of my usual Vital Proteins so switched to this and am enjoying it so far! It doesn’t dissolve quite as well but I mix it well and tend to just down it. My joints always feel much better when I take collagen and I hope it works for my skin too but I don’t notice much difference with that!


So that’s my little end of year empties! I’ll hopefully be back with a bigger batch in the new year! Let me know if you’ve tried any of the products I mentioned and what you thought!
