Empties #12

keep thinking I am always writing up empties posts but then it’s because I write the mini ‘review as and when I finish the product and then collect them up into the post (junk in my empties bin) has built up. I just find it is the best was to do it so that I can remember what the product is like while I used to write it all in one block, plus I stay more motivated. Anyway see what I’ve used up this time.

Rimmel London Wake Me Up! Concealer in Ivory: I’ve gone through a number of these as I feel as though this is one of the best drugstore under eye concealer on the market, and it is more likely to be in stock than the collection concealer. It really covers and brightens the under eye area and just wakes up your face and keeps it looking flawless. Would I Repurchase: yes, again and again.

Rimmel London 9-in-1 BB Cream: I won’t say much about it as I did a full review of it back in the summer which you can read here. Headline: liked it then, still like it now. Would I repurchase: possibly.

P.S. Love Lift and Curl Mascara: I tried this just after using the Benefit Roller Lash, any amazement in the curl ability and last from that went out of the window when I tried this. This adds a touch more curl, and creates more fluttery lashes which can be built up so I could go the whole hog or nice and natural. This is also so much cheaper with no tacky packaging. Would I repurchase: definitely.

L’Oreal Miss Manga Puny Mascara: Although I never follow the dates on makeup, naughty I know but if I followed it so much would get chucked out. I’ve had this almost a year and a while back it started to really irritate my eyes soon after putting it on and throughout the day so it’s had to go, saw me well over xmas though and it is almost finished anyway. For a review check out my post here. Would I repurchase: probably.

Superdrug My Little Star Cotton Wool Pads: (x2) Although I love the double faced pads from Boots you end up going through them so quickly, and I love using the bigger pads plus picking them up in the baby isle oppose to cosmetics mean they are cheaper and softer than the large cosmetic pads. This means I can use less pads to do my face or take off nail polish and these can be split in half if needs be. Also cute bonus these have cute teddy bears on them which you can see in my original haul.  Would I repurchase: yes.

L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Micellar Water: By now we’ve all tried out a least one or two micellar waters in an attempt to find the perfect lazy but effective make up removal product, micellar waters seem to be that. Either as a makeup remover or a quick effective cleanse, and the L’Oreal Micellar Water is no exception. Although I think I prefer the Garnier version this is a damn good product the smaller bottle stops it lasting as long only lasting 2/3 months opposed to the 5 I can manage out of the garnier but it quickly and effectively removes the makeup and leaves my skin clear and fresh. Would I repurchase: yes.

Skin Therapy Face Wipes: I’ve mentioned these a fair number of times so won’t say much, these are okay and do the job. I tend to use these for a quick freshen up or touch ups while doing my makeup. Would I repurchase: yes.

Botanical Circle Reducer Sunflower Eye Patches: I live for these eyepatches which I have no idea if they do reduce the circles as I don’t use them regularly enough but they feel absolutely amazing. Would I repurchase: yes!

Nair Gentle & Effective Ultra Hair Removal Sensitive Cream: Sometimes you just don’t want the effort of shaving and these creams can be great, I have to say these Nair ones are great and I’d consider getting more than the sachet but then again I don’t use them often and you only need one at a time as there is a lot of product. Also it cost £0.52 for two so well worth the price. They also worked in the 5 minutes. unlike some, wash off really well, don’t smell too strong and I didn’t have stubble for about a week so great for a week or long weekend away you won’t need razors and you’ll just have irresistibly smooth legs. Would I repurchase: yes, definitely.

The Body Shop Blueberry Body Scrub: It’s taken me a while to use this as I seem to go in phases with products such as body scrubs, but I love this scrub. Having a large and small exfoliating particles I feel as though it might do more but probably not it might just be in my head, but this works a dream especially for helping having smooth skin before shaving or just in general. This also smells amazing, it sucks blueberry was limited edition really but I will always attempt to repurchase this it’s to die for. Would I repurchase: yes, although it was limited edition. I would buy more of TBS scrubs.

Dove Soft Feel Antiperspirant Roll-On: I’m not fussy with deodorants although gel/sticks always offer protection, I just wasn’t sure of the initial smell of this one, not to my taste but it was okay. Would I repurchase: unlikely.

The Body Shop Almond Hand Cream: In winter hand creams are a must and I think the body shop almond is my favourite, this is my second tube. Deeply hydrating, not sticky, soaks in quickly and it smells like Bakewell tarts what more could you possibly want. Would I repurchase: for sure.

Macadamia Oil Foot Pack: I’m not going to say much these always appear in my empties as I love them so much. Would I repurchase: yes.

Elizabeth Arden Red Door EDT: Just one more after this until I’ve used all of my Elizabeth Arden Minis, I think these mixed scent sets are great especially as a gift or a way to try loads of new perfumes. Red Door is a great every day scent, sweet and kind of musky I think it’s a great work day scent just dab a small amount on the wrists and you’re great. It’s long lasting, just a really great scent and one of my favourite Elizabeth Arden scents I’ve tried. Would I repurchase: yes.

I love Raspberry and Blackberry Body Spray: I love perfumes but sometimes what you need is a sweet & refreshing body spray. This is deliciously fruity and lasts all day, I think it’s amazing, plus being plastic means it’s less likely to break in my bag. Would I repurchase: yes.

 

This One Gets You Silky Smooth Light Hair Oil: I love a good hair oil, this is one that was given to me by a friend to try as this is her favourite one and uses it ¾ times a week. It smells great and works into the ends of my hair super easy, the only problem it’s not the easiest to get hold but I have a number of hair oils on the go at the moment anyway so I’m not too bothered. Would I repurchase: if possible.

Colgate Flurigard Mouthwash: I have being using this since I first got my braces 11 years ago and haven’t used anything else since. This leaves your teeth feeling wonderful and clean, and your breath so fresh. Would I repurchase: always.

Carex Strawberry Laces Hand Gel: I have to have hand gel in my bag, work desk, makeup station just to have perfectly clean hands, although I absolutely hate the just alcohol smell. This smells kinda alcoholic but more like a strawberry cocktail rather than sterile and is just a treat to use. Would I repurchase: yes, for sure.

Barry M Nail Paint in Fashion Icon: The cap snapped within days of buying it however for the first month or so of winter 2014 it seemed to be fine, I then stopped using it for the year and when I revisited it winter 2015 it was horrible and dry so into the empties it when. Saying that it was a so-so nail polish as it peeled off easily so I’m not too disappointed it’s dried up. Would I repurchase: no.
