Hi lovelies! Okay, I admit, I've failed a New Years resolution already but I've decided this one doesn't count! See, for 2015 I said I'd do monthly empties posts.. well.. monthly, but as it's already more than half way through February, that clearly hasn't happened! I decided though, that as I may not have too many empties at the end of every single month, I'd just collect my empties and do them as and when I have enough to do a post with! So, let's get right into it, as I have a feeling this post could be a long one!
This Micellar Water, imaginatively named, 'Micellar Water' was a cheapy one from Savers and only cost me £1. I didn't mind this, but I did find that it stung my eyes a little sometimes. To be honest, I think most micellar waters work pretty much the same way and this one was good, but because of the stingy eyes, I don't think I'll be buying this again!
Nivea Daily Essentials Extra Gentle Eye Make-up Remover
I bought this purely because it was on offer, I hadn't heard much about it and didn't really know what to expect, all I knew was that I needed a new eye make-up remover! This was okay and it was alright at removing my eye make-up, but no better than a normal micellar water, so really, it was a bit pointless having the two products together. The one thing I would say though, is that this really is gentle on the eyes, so if you struggle with sensitive eyes then this could be good for you. However if you wear hard to remove make-up like They're Real mascara, this isn't the best.
Elemis Fresh Skin Peachy Perfect Gentle Face Wash
I really liked this, I think Elemis products are fab but this is a particular favourite of mine. This makes my face feel super clean without being drying and also has a very noticeable brightening effect. I would buy this again, but I actually stock Dermalogica in my salon, which I slightly prefer to Elemis, so while I would use this if I got it again, I'll probably be using other products for now.
Elemis Fresh Skin Skin Glow Scrub
Again, I really did like this and would use again, but maybe not for a while. If dull skin and dryness is an issue for you, you will probably really like this range and in that case, I'd definitely recommend this as I really loved it while my skin was going through a dry, dull phase this winter.
Benefit Hello Flawless Face Powder
FOREVER REPURCHASE. I love this face powder, we don't need to go on and on about how much I love Benefit products, because if you know me even slightly, you'll be all too aware of my Benefit obsession. So, basically, this powder is amazing and you need it. I've done a full review here for those interested.
Again, this is another favourite product of mine and I will always use this! I got several porefessional minis over Christmas and I find them really useful for just throwing in my handbag. This primer is perfect for those with enlarged pores, oily skin or like me, those who just want their skin to look flawless! It makes my foundation lasts all day which is perfect, I've already got several of these stocked up.
Treacle Moon Sweet Sugared Almond Shower Gel
I reviewed this in full here, I absolutely love Treacle Moon Shower gels, they're super inexpensive and they smell gorgeous. Also, bonus, absolutely no dry skin after use - yay! I might buy this again, but I definitely prefer the Marshmallow Hearts scent.
Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo
I got this recently in a Birch Box and I absolutely love it. This made my hair feel so clean and soft and smelled super fresh too. I also noticed that after use, my hair seemed to stay cleaner for longer and I managed to wash on the third day, rather than the second, which is huge for me. I'm not usually hugely fussy on what shampoos I use and don't often spend a lot of money on shampoo, but this could be a game changer.
Laura Mercier Ambre Vanille Body Cream
Do I even need to tell you all how gorgeous this is? Easily one of the best smelling products I've ever owned, it's super thick and luxurious, but doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy after use. This makes my skin feel so soft after just a few uses and the scent seriously sticks around. If you like a body lotion that smells yummy and makes you smell yummy all day, then this is definitely one to try! I would repurchase this, but due to the price, I'd rather receive it as a gift!
Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter
Despite all the hype around this product, I actually would have to say this is one of my least favourite Soap & Glory scents, I actually much prefer Smoothie Star and Sugar Crush to this scent. While I do like this and it definitely works great as a body butter, I won't be repurchasing this. I have a bigger size, which I definitely will use up, but I just prefer the other scents too much.
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub
I love this, the sugary, citrussy scent is a perfect morning pick me up and the grains in the scrub vary in size making it work really well to remove dry, dead skin without leaving the skin scratchy and sore afterwards. I actually have The Breakfast Scrub on the go at the minute, which has a yummy Maple Syrupy scent, which I very slightly prefer, so while I definitely will repurchase this, I'll probably switch between the two, as Soap & Glory do the best scrubs in my opinion!
So that's it! All my product empties for now, let me know if you'd like to see another post like this soon, as I'm determined to start using up some products.
