Empties #13

I’m trying to work out if my empties are often too long as I wait until I feel as though I have enough and then I ramble. So what do you think is best my current method or switching to monthly empties? Let me know in the comments as I am still a little torn about monthly empties.

Mark Hill De-Frizz Shine and Protect Spray: I’ve had this for ages and only just got round to using it, a heat protecting shine spray which smells great although I just love the Mark Hill products smell. Unfortunately they’ve discontinued this product but it doesn’t compare to my TRESemme heat defence spray also they spray went half way through and I had to move it to a different bottle. Would I repurchase: discontinued.

TRESemme Heat Defence Spray: On the topic of the TRESemme heat defence spay I have finished another one, I love this spray it last forever and helps keep my hair healthy and happy. Highly recommended. Would I Repurchase: always.

The Body Shop Blueberry Body Butter: I love the body shop body butters and the blueberry is no exception, it’s appeared in a few favourites and I am obsessed with this scent. Would I repurchase: yes.

Bath and Body Works Coconut and Lime Verbena (Body Lotion): My dad picked this up in the hotel when in American, and this has linked in my work desk draw since to keep my hands hydrated. Also I am so in love with the smell coconut and citrus is amazing and I’ve had loads of people asking what I’ve been using. Sadly we can’t get bath and body works stuff in the UK and my dad is only in America every 2/3 years with work.

Dove Go Fresh Revive Body Wash in Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena: I adore the Dove Deodorant with this scent and I couldn’t resist getting the shower gel, its sweet and fruity and so good. I also think its great combined with the deodorant as you’re not overpowered with multiple scents that don’t mix. Would I repurchase: yes.

Dolly Mixture Shower Crème in Rhubarb and Custard: It’s the month of shower gels or something, only because I don’t usually end up with two. Although it’s because I got two excited and used this and the Dove one simultaneously. As you know this appeared in my December Favourites and I could not get enough of it. Would I repurchase: yes for sure.

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation in 010 Light Porcelain: I have really enjoyed this foundation, lovely medium coverage and Rimmel London Formulas and tone tend to suit my skin. I also love have Rimmel do the super pale shades so I don’t have to worry about miss matching or it oxidising too much. Would I repurchase: yes.

Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer: I’m not going to bother much with this, it turns up in most empties. Love it end of. Would I repurchase: always.

No 7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water: I reviewed this back in January and absolutely loved it, you can read the full review here. It smells amazing but is on the slightly pricer size of high street cleansing waters. I love the pump packaging so I think I’m going to refil it after cleansing it with a different cleansing water. Would I repurchase: maybe.

Cuticura clean and fresh and cherry blossom hand gel (empties #14)

Cuticura Crisp and Fresh Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel: I pretty much have hand gel everywhere and this bigger one is from my work desk, I buy the bigger ones for work so I don’t have to buy as often and the convenient size matters less. Would I repurchase: yes.

Cuticura Cherry Blossom Hand Gel (Primark Exclusive): I love the Primark exclusive scents for the hand gels and they are inexpensive too, this was sweet and floral. Plus the packaging is so pretty, highly recommend. Would I repurchase: definitely.

So that’s all my junk for this time, actually some nice variation. If you enjoy empties, then check out my previous empties here, or look in the bar up the top.

December Favourites

December Faves

Wow so it’s the last day of December and the last day of 2015, so it seems best to end the year on the happy note that is a monthly favourites. I’m also assembling my 2015 favourites at the moment so I will be thinking of my all time of the favourites of the year which I have tried to keep varied from this. So this one is kinda on the short side highlighting 4 products I’ve loved this month.

My first favourite you may have seen if you looked at either of my makeup or look bits recently, it’s the MUA Blush in Cupcake. Similar in tone to the likes of Nars Sin being more dusty pink than anything else, sitting in that middle ground between blush and bronzer. I feel as though it is ideal for this time of year adding a hint of colour and some definition but it’s not too pink. I think this is just a super flattering and versatile blush.

With party season it was the season of big thick lashes, and the L’Oreal Miss Manga Punky Mascara as I am absolutely awful at lashes. Also with a more dramatic party look this is perfect for this time of year. I did a review of it back in the day which you can check out here (LINK). It’s on its last legs but I’m glad I got the most out of it over December before placing it in my next empties post.

After picking it up on whim The Body Shop Colourglide Lipstick in Rose Quartz, has fast become a day to day lipstick especially for work at the start of the month. The red tone makes it feel festive but the slight berry red and the somewhat sheer quality makes it fit right into my comfort zone.

For ages I looked at the Dolly’s Mixture Shower gel but never bothered to pick it up, until one day I thought why not and picked up the Dolly’s Mixtures Shower Gel in Rhubarb and Custard. The only downside is that it makes me crave rhubarb and custard sweets which I love but you get to indulge without the calories. I’m just going to be sad when it’s finished.

Finally a bonus December favorites were my nails over Christmas which were from P.S. Love which you may of seen on instagram. I love them as they are festive but not in your face christmas nails as well as being super affordable.

So what have you loved over December or if not December, 2015 as a whole? Let me know in the comments. Also Happy New Year and have a great evening whatever you’re doing.
