Empties #3

Hello my lovelies,

I honestly didn’t realise these posts would be so frequent. It’s actually quite interesting keeping your empty products to see exactly what you get through.  I used to think I never finished anything very often but clearly I am wrong on this!

Lush – Snow Fairy Shower Gel

As you may or may not know, the Snow Fairy scent is limited edition for the Christmas period and I absolutely frigging love it! I wish that this is a scent they bring out all year round as it’s simply amazing. The smell is very sweet, like candy floss and has little glitter particles in it. Don’t worry this doesn’t really transfer onto the skin it’s just cute. The smell lingers for ages especially in the bathroom I always smell it the next morning I mean what more could you want. I’m sad I have finished this bottle but fear not I have another two bottles lined up which I am going to stagger throughout the year.

 Jo Malone – Peony & Blush Suede Cologne see here

This is a sample size which I got when I had a complimentary hand and arm massage from the wonderful team at Jo Malone. It’s a lovely floral scent which sits on the skin beautifully and lasts all day. I have a few other scents from Jo Malone and every single one of them I adore. I know this is a sample size but it really does take me a long while to finish a fragrance I’m not very loyal I just pick whatever I fancy. I don’t think I’m going to rush out and buy the full size as I have so many but this is definitely on my list to purchase!

Primark – Oval Cosmetic Pads & Sure – Invisible Aqua Deodorant

I mentioned these in my previous empties post, see here so head on over there to see what I think about these.

Simple – Kind to Skin Smoothing Facial Scrub see here

I use face exfoliators in the shower, it just seems to work for me and I use it around 2/3 times a week. I believe exfoliators are an important part in a skincare routine and shouldn’t be forgotten about.  This Simple one is pretty impressive, I sometimes fear that some face exfoliators are harsh on the skin but this one is quite fine which means it doesn’t damage the skin. I think this is the best one I have tried if I am honest. It easily removes the dead skin cells from your face along with any dirt and leaves the skin feeling extremely soft. I always have another one in my drawer ready to use when one runs out!

Benefit – Precisely, My Brow Pencil (shade 4) see here

This is pretty impressive, I never usually use a brow pencil to fill in my brows but when I went to the Benefit counter in Brighton they completely changed my outlook on it. I use this brow pencil to fill in the front of my brow for a lighter look. I love it, it’s so easy to use. The only annoying this is because it’s a twist up pencil you don’t realise when it runs out so it was a shock when this did run out. I have since finishing this already brought a new one because nothing compares to this!

Dove – Fine Silk Caring Cream Bath see here

I had this in a Christmas gift set from 2015, I know I have had it for a while! I finally found a use for this a couple of months back as I found it was the perfect consistency for a shaving cream. My legs felt so smooth after using this and actually smells quite nice. I don’t think I would repurchase this as I don’t usually go out to buy shaving cream but I am glad I found a use for this as I can’t bear to throw out products that I haven’t used.

Yes To – Soothing Facial Wipes see here

I received these in a Birchbox quite some time ago when I had a subscription with them, and thought these would be handy to use to remove make up off my hands etc. If you have already seen my post Cleansers VS Make Up Wipes you would know I don’t use wipes to remove my make up from my face. Unfortunately I didn’t like them, they didn’t remove my make up very easily even on my hand. It was probably the worst type of cleansing wipes I have ever used. I have seen a few people review this brand and really like it but they aren’t for me. I won’t be repurchasing these again I’m afraid.

Kiko – Pure Clean Milk & Tone see here

I LOVE this stuff! I have recently been pretty lazy recently with my skincare but this has been a massive help as it cleanses and tones all in one! I mentioned this in my January Favorites as I am so impressed with it. I have gone through a few bottles of this now and I don’t think I can live with out it. It is so quick and easy to use, and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. What more could you want! I have already brought a new bottle of this stuff so fear not!

Collection – Lasting Perfection Concealer (cool medium) see here

This is my all time favourite concealer. I have tried a lot of different concealers in my time and nothing competes to this one. It does the trick for everything I want, it covers the under eyes and blemishes. I think everyone and their dog has this concealer and actually I have never heard a bad word about it. It blends easily and is the perfect shade for me. What’s more it’s only £4.19! I always find that with concealers they run out so quickly which annoys me something chronic but this one definitely doesn’t break the bank so I’ll happily keep on buying this until it is no more!

Primark – Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes 

Now as you know I don’t use wipes to remove my make up off my face but they are always handy to have for any mistake or removing swatches etc. off your hand. These are the best ones I have tried – ever. They are perfect and even when I remove my make up , very rarely may I add, with a make up wipe this is the only one I will use. I don’t feel like these dry out my skin and they aren’t too bad at removing make up. I always have a pack of these lined up to use as I simply can’t use anything else!
