Back in November, I posted my second Product Empties post. 5 months on, I’m back with a third instalment featuring all the products I’ve used up recently. This time round, it’s very skincare heavy, I have finished loads of skincare in the past few weeks which has been a bit of a pain as I literally can’t afford to buy any new products due to my upcoming travels! But when I get back, a spree is gonna be happening!
Lush BIG Sea Salt Shampoo
Seriously the best shampoo I’ve ever used! I’ve never raved about a shampoo like I have this one. I have uber greasy hair and I could never go a day without washing it until I used this, I can now go around 2-3 days which is something I had been dying to achieve for ages and nothing would work so I really adore this shampoo and as you can see I’ve recently finished two tubs! It gives great volume too and smells incredible!
Rituals Yogi Flow Shower Foam
I received this shower foam in a beauty box a while back and finished it quite a while ago too, it’s been sitting in my empties box for some time! From what I can remember, I loved the smell of this product, the Sweet Almond Oil & Indian Rose scent is gorgeous however Rituals suggest this turns to foam on contact with water.. Not true! It came out of the bottle as a foam and it would be quite difficult to dispense especially near the end, that is the only downside though! This left my skin feeling lovely.
Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel
Pretty much everyone’s favourite Lush shower gel… but not mine. I had this for ages and never used it as I just have so many shower gels lying around my bathroom, it’s a bit silly how many I have really! I started using it recently and I have to say I don’t find anything particularly special about it – it’s average and I do find the scent a little overwhelmingly sweet. I loved it when I had a sniff in store but for some reason when I was using it, I didn’t really like it. I probably won’t be purchasing this next Christmas..
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
I feel like I’ve mentioned this cleanser so much here on the blog but it is my favourite cleanser so that’s no surprise! I was so upset when I finished this up! I’ll definitely be re-purchasing this, it removes makeup so well and leaves my skin feeling amazing. There’s a full review on this popular cleanser here.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O
Another fabulous product for makeup removal! I really love this micellar water and having tried Garnier’s version too, I have to say I prefer Bioderma’s offering much more as the Garnier one can sometimes leave my skin a little irritated. I’ll be buying another bottle of this very soon!
Elemis Hydra Balance Day Cream
I love Elemis products but because they are so pricey, I have to rely on beauty boxes & samples to try out their products. The Hydra Balance Day Cream is actually for combination skin but I found it worked well on my dry skin leaving it feeling hydrated, soft and supple. A great moisturiser!
Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm
This has to be the best lip balm I’ve used and I’ve used a lot. It’s rich, thick texture really helps smooth out and nourish dry, chapped lips keeping them moisturised for hours. This little pot lasted me around 2 months which is great considering I applied it about a million times a day. I need to buy another pot asap.
Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum
I have to say that Caudalie do the best serums. This is the second one from them that I’ve tried and I love it, the other was the Vinoperfect Radiance Serum which was incredible. The Vinosource Serum is ideal for dry skin as it’s super hydrating leaving skin soft and refreshed.
Codage Paris Eclat & Energy Serum
Another great serum comes from Codage Paris. If you have tired dull skin, it’s perfect for you. It banishes signs of fatigue brightening your complexion and leaves your skin feeling amazing. I just wish it wasn’t so expensive but if you can afford it, it’s well worth the splurge.
Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant
I much prefer liquid exfoliants over the usual scrubs as I have quite sensitive skin and scrubs can just be a bit too much and can cause some irritation. This exfoliant by Paula’s Choice has become one of my favourite skincare products as it really renews my skin improving my skin’s texture and appearance. If I ever have a breakout, this helps reduce the redness and clears my skin in no time at all. It’s also great at minimising the blackheads on my nose. A definite re purchase for years to come!
