Empties #6

February 01, 2014

I can't believe it's been just over three months since my last empties post, and this will be the first one since moving house. It's safe to say I have accumulated a lot of empties over that time, seeing as i'd either used up or thrown out the products that only had a little amount in when packing to move house.

As you can see i've kind of split this into categories, just make it easier for you guys to read rather than it being one big jumble of different products. I'm going to wizz through these as quickly as possible, as there it quite a few products.

First up is skincare and the first product is the L'oreal Micellar Solution, which didn't take that long to use up actually, even though it's in a rather big bottle I found myself using a lot of product in one application. That being the only downside, I really like this as a cheaper option to Bioderma as it does the job and is easier to get hold of over here. Next up is the Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturiser and truth be told this is product i've had for years, and one that I never used as an actual moisturiser. Before you get any funny thoughts, I opted for this whenever dying my hair (hence the grubby marks all over the bottle) as moisturiser helps to  stops hair dye from dying your skin and i've finally got through this bottle. Lastly within the skincare products is the Tesco Cucumber Toner, another product i've had for quite some time but I loved this as it's a very gentle toner and works well on younger skin, although I don't use this anymore i'd still recommend it especially if you're looking for a cheap toner.

Moving onto hair products and first up is the Toni & Guy Damaged Hair Shampoo & Conditioner, which I purchased in a blog sale early last year. With these being the first Toni & Guy products i'd ever owned, i've been quite impressed. They definitely help to make the hair feel more nourished but I did find the shampoo to make my roots greasy after just one day, so i'm kind of glad I finished up the shampoo but the conditioner is one i'd for sure repurchase. Next up is the Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo, i've actually used up two of these and I don't think there has been an empties post without one of these in there somewhere. It's safe to say I depend on dry shampoos and this one is my favourite at it smells really nice. This next product is one that I think I will never be without and that is the Dove Leave-in-Conditioning Oil Care, which is a spray conditioner and oil in one. I love this as it really helps to condition my dry and brittle ends, whilst softening the hair. Last of the hair products now and this product is one that was a bit of an odd one for, the product in question is the Phillip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo. This product worked really well, but left the most horrible white cast over my hair that was really difficult to remove that I actually ended up washing my hair, defeated the whole purpose of the product really.

These last bunch of products are mainly body, with a random makeup product thrown in for good measure. Starting off with the Sure Crystal Clear Anti Perspirant, i've actually used up three bottles of this stuff and it's safe to say it's my go to deodorant. It just works really well and doesn't transfer onto my clothes. Another deodorant and that is the Nivea Pearl & Beauty which I honestly didn't like at all, it transferred onto my clothes and just didn't impress me to be honest. This next product is one i've spoke about recently and that is the Ginger & Co Double Up Body Wash*. I actually really enjoyed using this body wash, the scent lingered all day and left my skin feeling clean and soft, I may have to repurchase this! Lastly i've finally finished a mascara, and that is the Collection Multiplier Mascara, which i've named as my favourite mascara too often to count. It adds length, curl and is really cheap also.

So that is all the products i've used up recently!

What products have you finished up recently?

  7. I found exactly the same thing with the L'Oreal Micellar water. I've only had it a few weeks and it's pretty much empty because so much comes out when I go to use it. Probably going to switch back to Bioderma when it's all gone! x
