Product Empties #1

Product Empties are my favourite posts to read on blogs. I think it’s a great way to show your readers what products you’ve really been loving because well, you’ve used them up! This is the case most of the time anyway, there is a product featured here that is not empty but I will not be using it again, ever so it’s destined for the bin. A few of these products are fairly new and I’ve only finished using them recently however some are months old and now I’m glad they can finally be chucked! So let’s see what products I’ve used up..

Soap & Glory Hand Food – No other hand cream makes my hands feel as lovely as this. It sinks into the skin in seconds and leaves my hands feeling soft and smooth for hours. Not only does it do a great job, it smells lovely too! I’ve already got another tube and I will keep on repurchasing this for as long as I can.

Dr PawPaw Original Balm – I received this balm back in February in my first ever Look Fantastic box. I didn’t start using it until March and only finished it about 2 weeks ago and considering the size of this tube (10ml) it lasted such a long time! I did apply it a fair few times all day, everyday. The balm itself is nice and did leave my lips feeling soft and supple. This is probably my new favourite lip balm and I will probably buy the full size once I’ve finished up my current one by Cowshed.

Rimmel BB Cream 9 in 1 Makeup – It’s been a while since I finished this BB cream by Rimmel. A nice light base that is perfect for summer or those days when you don’t want to wear too much make up. I don’t think this is anything particularly special however, it did an ok job but not something I would purchase again unless I had to.

Lancome Hydra Zen Neurocalm – Technically this is not empty yet but is very close to being done so I decided to feature it now. I’m so sad that I’m close to finishing this, it’s such a lovely moisturiser! It’s a very small sample pot but it has taken me a fair while to get to the bottom. This cream has improved my skin immensely over the last few months and I’m sad that as it’s so expensive it’s unlikely I’m going to able to purchase a full size one, for some time anyway.

Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum – Yep, I’ve finished my sample of the Clinique Custom Repair Serum that I got with InStyle back in May. This surprisingly lasted longer than I thought it would, but when it stopped pumping out product I was so gutted. I actually shouted ‘No!’, thats how much I love this serum. I was starting to see a difference to my skin too. Oh well! Would I buy again? Definitely. However it’s an expensive product too, so I might have to win the lottery before I’m able.

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer – This concealer was the first ‘pen-brush’ concealer I tried and it made me love the concept. However in terms of the product, it’s not that good in the slightest. It covered up my dark circles but not as well as the Collection Lasting Perfection does. I won’t be repurchasing this!

Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes – Now we have the product that is not empty however I will not be using these ever again. I had high hopes for these wipes, the first time I used them I had a little burning sensation but nothing too major. The next time, my skin went completely red and the burning was intense, it was awful. It took about half an hour to calm down and these went straight in the bin. In terms of removing make up, they were incredible but obviously that doesn’t matter now. If you have sensitive skin, please do not use these!

COLAB Dry ShampooI finished this and another 50ml can a while back and I was surprised at how long they lasted considering the size. This dry shampoo is not the best on the market in my opinion, however for the price is a good bargain. It does the job leaving my hair feeling clean but it can still look a bit of a mess but I would probably purchase another 50ml and try it again.

Astral All Over Moisturiser – The last product is my favourite moisturiser. I’ve been using Astral since I was a teenager and its a great cream. I’m quite surprised that this gets no love in the blogging world, that I’ve seen. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated, protected and has worked wonders for me over the years. I haven’t repurchased as I want to try out different moisturisers however I can guarantee that one day I will go back to this.
