Product Empties #45


product empties danielles beauty blog

I seem to be back on a roll with finishing my products so long may it continue! I would say something else like long time no see, but, I feel like every blog post I write recently says that so I am just accepting the sporadic inspiration to post!

Vaseline Dry Skin Repair

Love this, smells to fresh and clean and moisturises my body well. I got a jumbo pack in Costco so I have another one to get through, but I will repurchase in the future as well!


Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream

One of my faves! Smells amazing and makes my skin so soft and smooth! Already have a back up!


Lush Snow Fairy

A yearly treat to myself and this lasts a long time! I love the scent but I know it’s very sweet and sickly to others but I will repurchase at Christmas again!


Nivea Smooth Hands & Nail Care

Love this hand cream, very lightly scented and sinks in straight away leaving my hands smooth and hydrated! Will repurchase!

TRESemme Volume Clean Dry Shampoo

Works really well to give me an extra day out of my hair on a budget! Already repurchased!


Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

Works really well to give me 2-3 days extra out of my hair! As well as volume and a bit more life. It’s a bit pricier but worth it in my opinion! Full review here! Already repurchased!


Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder

Enjoyed this but a bit of a faff so I’ve had it for ages. Worked well to add some volume into my hair but I usually used it alongside a normal dry shampoo as it’s a powder and I didn’t want to put it on my main parting! Not a repurchase!

CosRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner

Love this! Works well to smooth my skin but I use it mostly as a spray on the backs of my arms as it helps KP and makes my arms t-shirt ready for summer! Full review here! Will repurchase!


Nivea Express Eye Makeup Remover

A constant in my empties, this stuff is incredible at removing waterproof eye makeup and I can’t be without it! I have 4 backups in my stash as my mum recently came to visit and it’s a lot cheaper in the UK! Full review here! Forever repurchased!


EVY Daily Defence Face Mousse SPF 50

Really enjoyed this though I found it quite messy even when I rubbed it in my hands before spreading on my face like the brand said! I’ll forgive it though as it sinks in quickly, doesn’t dry out my skin and sits so well under makeup while protecting my skin! Will repurchase in the future!


Dr Jart Ceramidin Cream

Another long term fave! This is possibly my favourite moisturiser as it’s so nourishing and hydrating yet lightweight enough for during the day! It sits perfectly under makeup and is a staple in my skincare stash! Full review here! Already repurchased!


Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask

I was pleasantly surprised by this after initially finding it a bit boring/basic! It’s a lovely creamy overnight moisturiser that contains shea butter, squalane, panthenol and glycerin and it feels rich and soothing and nourishes my skin leaving it plump the next morning! Will repurchase when I finish a few other overnight moisturisers!


Biotherm Cera Repair Barrier Cream*

Loved this for daytime use as it sat so well under makeup. It contains Biotherm’s famous life plankton to trigger skin’s self-regeneration as well as bioceramides to strengthen and repair the skins barrier. My skin felt soft and soothed and even though it feels like a thick formula it sinks in straight away and I found I wasn’t getting flaky around my nose by midday like with some other moisturisers! The only negative for me was that I went through it so quickly as this was a 30ml and it’s on the pricier side! Would repurchase on offer!


Murad Nutrient Charged Water Gel*

Another great moisturiser, this one feels more lightweight so I saved it for summer! It’s made up of vitamins and minerals (silicon, iron, zinc, copper and magnesium) and peptides to smooth skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve tone and texture and restore the skins barrier. A little goes a long way with this one and like it promises, my skin feels and looks plump, smooth and hydrated, fine lines are less visible and it provides a lovely base for makeup, working well with any SPF I put over top! Full review here! Would repurchase on offer!


NIOD Survival 0*

This one needs no introduction and I have featured it a few times on the blog over the years! It’s an antioxidant, reparative serum targeting damage caused by environmental stressors like pollution, smog and blue light. The formula is lightweight, and it’s an orange-y colour that absorbs easily and has a faint herbal scent (I use at night). Overtime, this reduces photo damage and I have noticed my skin tone is healthier overall. It also feels hydrating (includes glycerin and squalane) and layers well with other skincare! Already have a back up! Full review here!


Theramid Derma-Peptides*

A trio of Niche Beauty Lab must haves next, starting with the Derma-Peptides! This is a multi-peptide serum containing a mix of Matrixyl’s and bio peptides to improve visual signs of aging, boost collagen and elastin, reduce fine lines and encourage smoother looking skin. The results are subtle but very much worth adding to your routine, I think peptides are so underrated! My skin feels smooth and supported with consistent use! Would repurchase!


Theramid Ceramide Treatment*

My go to on retinal nights as this contains ceramide, ectoin and cica and keeps my barrier supported! It’s a thick serum that feels more like a lightweight moisturiser and it works so well to keep my skin hydrated and protected. I absolutely love this product, and if you ever suffer from a compromised skin barrier, it's a must-have.


Transparent Lab Protect + Correct Serum*

This is an antioxidant serum containing Vitamin A, C, E, Ferulic Acid and Resveratrol. It aims to improve the overall appearance of the skin while helping to prevent the appearance of new wrinkles. I am a big fan of antioxidants and while you can’t always see their effects straight away, I am confident they are working in the background and protecting my skin! With consistent use my skin looks and feels more even! Would repurchase! Full review of all three products plus one I haven’t finished yet here!


Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream

This was a lovely creamy moisturiser I used during the day as it sank in so well and didn’t cause pilling with my SPF. I find Tatcha on the pricy side so not a repurchase for me but I do have another mini of this to enjoy!


Barry M Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Loved this! I am gutted as I think they have discontinued their lip scrubs or at least in the flavours I liked but this was so affordable and “scrubby” yet gentle so perfect for me to exfoliate my lips with every day! Would repurchase!


Institute Esthederm Intensive Hyaluronic

Nice but such a tiny sample I can’t say much! Not a repurchase!


Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer

This is the second one of these I have been through and I love it! So hydrating and smoothing on my lips, leaving them glossy and nourished for a long time. Will repurchase!


Burt’s Bees Lip Balm

My go to affordable lip balm! Hydrated and smoothing and so handy to have in my pocket or bag! Already repurchased!


Clarins Lip Oil in Honey

Love this, so glossy and hydrating! I have found it’s not as long lasting on my lips in Canada as it’s so dry where I live compared to when I first tried it at home but I still love it even though I have to reapply more often! Would repurchase but I already have a full size to get through! Full review here!


Dr Dennis Gross Universal Daily Peel

Love these! So smoothing yet hydrating and they really help even my skin tone and make it look more radiant! Again, a little pricey so not a repurchase for me when I have other products that do a similar job but I love when I get these as samples!

Revlon Colourstay Foundation for Oily/Combo skin in Buff

My favourite drugstore foundation! Full coverage and long lasting, I have a full review here! Already repurchased! 

purely inspired collagen peptides review



Purely Inspired Collagen Peptides x3

Affordable and effective, I love these for helping my joints and I hope they make my skin look better too!
