Empties #11

Hello my lovelies,

I’m back again with another Empties post, I think these are my favourite posts to write and read. Unfortunately they are always the longest posts because I can never shut up. I clearly have a lot to say. I honestly didn’t think I would be doing these as often as I do I try and leave it as long as possible but I have 10 empty products I mean seriously how do I go through it all!?

Batiste – Dry Shampoo in Blush see here

In my opinion Batiste is the best brand for dry shampoo. I can’t live without it and I always have a bottle handy. Personally I don’t have a fragrance I go to, normally it’s whatever takes my fancy in the design when I’m choosing. The big bottles lasts so long and are such good value for money. I will forever be buying this goodness.

Soap & Glory – Peaches & Clean Deep Cleansing Milk see here

This is another firm favourite of mine, it is a complete savior. When I need a reliable cleanser this is one of the ones I normally go for. I have actually written a full review about this product here if you want a little more information on the cleanser. The only annoying this is that I majorly struggle to get the last bit out of the bottle. Seriously there is still a decent amount of product in there and I can’t seem to get to it. Lucky me I have another bottle of this ready and waiting to open!

TRESemme – Luxurious Moisture Shampoo see here

Annoyingly I can only find a link for the duo and not the shampoo separately. I did finish the conditioner a little while ago which I mentioned in a previous empties post here I was so happy when I finally finished this. The shampoo really went on for the longest time. I don’t think it worked well with my hair in the end because it became resistant to the effects. I think in future I will be sticking to getting smaller of bottles of shampoo. I like to mix it up a little.

The Body Shop – Detangling Spray for Coloured Hair see here

Annoyingly for whatever reason this is a very hard product to get hold of. I have very knotty hair even when I condition my hair I still need a helping hand and this is a little god send. It does exactly what it says on the bottle and gives that little extra moisture that I’m not complaining about.

Sadly, I don’t have another one waiting in the wings to use because it’s so hard to get hold of. I am currently using another one. If anyone can let me know of any good detangling sprays that would be fab – I find these so hard to get hold of. Why don’t brands understand that people get knotty hair and need help!

Revolution – Strobe Luxe Palette see here

Ok so this isn’t an empty BUT I have smashed it to pieces, accidentally may I add, on the floor. I can’t really use it far too messy and they didn’t wow me so I think rather than creating more mess it’s time to say goodbye. It’s a cute little palette and I’m in love with the packaging but I never reached for it much and the last time I did I dropped it. We just weren’t destined to be. I’m not sure if I would repurchase this as I have so many highlighters and I don’t think I will miss this much..

Original Source – Limited Edition Hibiscus & Pomegranate Tea Shower Gel see here

I really enjoy the Original Source shower gels, they are perfect for travelling and so easy to pick up. They have so many scents now and they are always on offer. This one I really did enjoy, I love the smell of pomegranate, it’s so fresh and is the perfect shower gel especially first thing in the morning. If I see this on the shelves again I will be buying it again but with it being limited edition and I think it will be a little tricky.

Soap & Glory – Kick Ass Pressed Powder in Totally Translucent see here

I LOVE this powder. I feel like for me powders are really hard to impress me. I mean they set your make up I always buy translucent so I never see it – it’s just a step of my makeup and normally just use the same one time and time again. However, this has really impressed me.

It’s great at oil control and does an amazing job at setting my make up. It’s one of the only powders I have repurchased in a long time because I knew I couldn’t be without it. The packaging I must say is a little flimsy my new one has already come unstuck from the backing so I can’t travel with it. £12 for a drugstore powder is a little pricey though..

Garnier – Micellar Cleansing Gel Wash see here

I had such high hopes for this product and actually it was fairly disappointing. I am not saying it’s a bad product I guess I just expected more from it, especially as I love their original micellar water. For me that is a holy grail product, but this I used up because it was ok but I won’t be repurchasing I’m afraid. I have heard so many good reviews about this but it just didn’t work the way I wanted it to. I have written a full review on this here

Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer in Sin see here

So I love Urban Decay Primer potion in original. I have quite a few samples of the other shades they have to offer and I have finally decided to get round to using them. For me I can’t apply eyeshadow without applying a primer to my lids. I just can’t do it. I thought I would love this as much as I love my original but sadly I didn’t.

The colour is extremely pink toned which really isn’t my cup of tea. It created a base that had colour in it which doesn’t compliment my skin tone. I mean it worked the same way but the colour really isn’t for me and resulted in me having to apply another base to even the tone out. Sorry but I will be sticking to the original primer potion!

PS Love (Primark) – Oval Cosmetic Pads 

We all know that I’m obsessed with these. They are in nearly every single Empties post that I publish. These are the only cotton pads that I will use. They are perfect for removing make up and for 90p you really can’t go wrong. I have been stocking up and I think I have another two packets ready and waiting to go. Lets hope they aren’t discontinued anytime soon!

Hats off to you if you made it to the end! It’s so satisfying after I have written these posts because I can finally throw all the products away! Let me know if you have used any of these products and what your thoughts are on them.

  1. I love a good empties post it’s interesting to know what products are worth purchasing because it definately would not be an empty if it wasn’t worth it. I personally haven’t tried any of them.
