Product Empties #44


daniellesbeautyblog product empties

A slightly better number of empties compared to my last post in December and I finally feel like I am back on it with finishing products! Lets see what we have this time!


daniellesbeautyblog haircare empties


Dove Go Active Dry Shampoo

I mentioned the dry shampoo recall in my last empties post and this was another one I had to check the batch code of but thankfully it wasn’t affected. Overall, while not as effective as the Living Proof dry shampoo I have been loving, this is a good budget option. It soaks up oil, leaves no white cast and gives me another day out of my hair. Have repurchased. 


Living Proof PhD Dry Shampoo x2

This stuff on the other hand is incredible! It is a lot pricier than my usual budget dry shampoos, but it is the best I have tried! It leaves no white cast, absorbs easily giving me an extra day or two out of my greasy hair and actually makes it look clean. It also gives a bit of lift which is perfect as my hair can look lank when greasy and it has a really subtle fresh scent. I don’t normally go that long between washes but this makes it easy! Well worth the money and it featured in my Best Beauty Discoveries in Haircare for 2022! Have repurchased.


Sol de Janeiro Strengthening + Smoothing Shampoo

This SLS free shampoo smells exactly like Bum Bum Cream and left my hair feeling clean and soft and obviously smelling amazing! I do have other shampoos I prefer but I would repurchase this if it was on a good offer.


Sol de Janeiro Strengthening + Smoothing Conditioner

Lovely hydrating conditioner that again smells beautiful! Again, I have other conditioners I prefer but I would repurchase.


Sol de Janeiro Triple Brazilian Butter Hair Repair Treatment

Another gorgeous product from SDJ that hydrates hair and makes it smell amazing! Would repurchase.

Nivea Nourishing Body Milk

You know know how much I love Nivea and while this smells clean and fresh and moisturises well, it’s not my favourite formula! I find it smears over my skin and I need to work it in more than their other body moisturisers so this wont be a repurchase for me but I will pick up their Smooth body lotion again which I love!


Eucerin Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion

My go to in winter! I use this mostly on my legs as they get so dry in winter and this stuff instantly calms skin and stops me scratching my eczema patches. I have been using it for years and always go back to it! Will repurchase!


First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub

Really enjoyed this scrub, it’s very fine so did a good job of smoothing my KP. It contains both pumice for physical exfoliation and 10% AHA for chemical exfoliation and I would repurchase if I find it on offer!

Dermalogica Hyaluronic Ceramide Mist*

A lovely, hydrating and smoothing facial mist. It’s rose scented but I am a bit sick of the scent so not a repurchase for me as there are a lot of other facial mists I prefer including the Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist! See my full review here!


Sioris Time is Running Out Mist

There was a lot of hype over this one but it fell a bit flat for me. Worked well to hydrate my skin throughout the day but again there are just other mists I prefer so not a repurchase for me!


Nivea Express Eye Makeup Remover

Probably my most repurchased skincare item. It’s dual phase formula makes taking off waterproof eye makeup a breeze! Gentle, doesn't sting my eyes or dry out the skin around them! A must have on everyone’s skincare shelf and a good budget buy too!


NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum

Dare I say my favourite serum and a staple in my skincare rotation since 2016. It’s a pro-repair and pro-collagen serum that maintains healthy looking skin by targeting signs of skin ageing like textural damage, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores and a lack of radiance. My skin is more even, clear and firm when I use this consistently! It’s watery and sinks in quickly and can be used in the morning and evening. My skin just looks better when I use this and I will repurchase once I use up a few more serums in my stash. See my full review here! 


NIOD Modulating Glucosides*

A really interesting serum that targets sensitive, irritated skin encouraging a calmer complexion. It supports the skin barrier, hydration and repair and helps reduce redness, itching and burning. Again, it’s lightweight and sinks in easily though the scent is quite strong. It is such a comforting serum and really helped calm and repair my barrier and if you struggle with sensitivity you need to try this! Will repurchase! Full review here!


Vichy Mineral 89 Eyes*

This is a lovely, lightweight formula and the pump dispenses the perfect amount of product every time! It contains glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, caffeine and shea butter and targets puffiness, fine lines and darkness! It cools down my under eyes making them significantly less puffy and also hydrates, reducing my fine lines. Didn’t pill with makeup either! Will repurchase! Full review here!


ESPA 24 Hour Replenishing Eye Moisturiser via Cohorted*

A much thicker formulation than the Vichy so I used this one at night. It felt nicely hydrating and left my undereyes smooth and moisturised. Liked it but probably wouldn’t repurchase.


First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser

Boring but nice is how I would explain this one. It has no scent but feels creamy and cleans and refreshes skin without leaving it feeling dried out perfect for sensitive skins! Would repurchase!


Fenty Skin Total Cleans’r

I used this as a second or morning cleanse and it felt nicely hydrating and didn’t dry my skin out. I have a lot of other cleansers I need to get through and ones I prefer over this so not a repurchase for me!


Fenty Beauty Hydra Vizor

I was surprised how long this little bottle lasted and honestly by how much I enjoyed it! It’s SPF 30 so perfect for me this winter and it left my skin feeling hydrated and smooth. I actually picked up a full size of this before I left for Canada as I spotted it at TK Maxx and I am glad I did! Would repurchase!


Tatcha The Rice Wash

This has a slightly grainy texture so gently exfoliates and doesn’t feel stripping. I am not a huge fan of the scent though so it’s not a repurchase for me!


Sunday Riley C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum

Too small a sample to say if it did much brightening but this was a lovely lightweight formula that sank in quickly and didn’t pill with other products. The price tag is eye watering so not a repurchase for me!


Dr Lipp Miracle balm

Loved this and gutted it’s finished! This was my night time lip treatment and it kept them hydrated overnight and this little tube lasted forever. Lanolin Is one of my favourite lip care ingredients and I would repurchase this again!


Laneige Lip Glowy Balm in Berry

Another love! This felt very hydrating on my lips and I didn’t need to reapply throughout the day too often. It had a lovely subtle scent and a really subtle pink hint of colour to the lips too! Will repurchase when I finish up a few more lip products!

Revlon Colourstay for Combination/Oily Skin in 150 Buff

My favourite budget foundation. This has good coverage and lasting power, and I am already using my backup and have two more bottles in my stash as it’s my day to day work foundation!


Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Waterproof Mascara

Been through so many tubes of this and love it! Gives good volume and separation with no flaking. I have watery eyes so even waterproof mascara leave a small smudge under one of my eyes by the end of the day but with this it’s very minimal so I will forgive it! Will repurchase! 


daniellesbeautyblog miscellaneous empties


Purely Inspired Collagen Peptides

This is dissolving better for me now when I leave it for a few minutes in water and my joints always feel much better when I take collagen. I hope it works for my skin too but I don’t notice much difference with that! Have already repurchased.


Briogeo B. Well Vegan Omega 3, 6, 9 + Biotin supplements *

Enjoyed these but more expensive than my normal vitamins (I just take cod liver oil, Vitamin B etc) so not a repurchase for me! 


So that's it for this batch! Did you see any of your favourites or products you would like to try? Sorry about the horrendous photo quality too, my lighting was already bad then the site I use to edit has become paid :( if you have a good free editing site alternative please let me know!
