Empties #5

Beauty Empties 5

It’s been over two months since my last empties post, which surprised me a wee bit, but I’m rather proud of myself.  I’ve done some decluttering again!  Wee pat on the back there.  Let’s start in the bottom left shall we?  Excellent.  I’ve three Elegant Touch Express press on nails, 2 in Polished Black* and 1 Classic Garnet.  These are just great for when my nails are peeling and in a right state, I can pop them up and let my nails heal.  I’ll not doubt repurchase in future.  I have a polish from elf, it was once a nice nude..then it separated. Bin!  I’ve also finally used up these Quickies Nail Varnish Remover Pads*, I’ve had them for quite a while, I tended to bring them with me while travelling, very handy!  I’d buy these again.

For hair, I’ve an empty Bleach London Washed up Mermaid* hair dye.  I think this was my favourite of the bunch but I’ve since fallen in love with stargazer hair dyes and prefer them.  I finally finished up the last of my Roots & Rituals Conditioner.  I love this and I have raved about it quite a bit, I will purchase without a doubt.  I’ve finished up a Mark Hill No Knots, which I don’t think is available anymore.  It was fine, I wouldn’t rush out to repurchase.  I’m using the Superdrug Kids Detangling Spray*, which I mentioned in my recent hair dying & aftercare post and love. The Tresemme Keratin Smooth Deep Treatment Mask*

For skin care I’ve quite a few products I’m getting rid of that just didn’t work for me and I won’t repurchase.  First is the La Roche Posay Hydreane Light moisturiser, this just didn’t suit my skin and I’ve tried a few times with no joy, so time to go.  Next is Palmers Natural Bronze.  To be honest I’ve never tried this but I never fake tan and although this is no doubt easy to use, I’ll just never use it.  I’m sad to say the Super Facialist cleansing oil is just not for me.  Maybe it’s past it’s best, but I’m not a fan.  I tested out the Lacura facial oil, again it didn’t work with my skin. Bin.  From Montague Jeunesse I tried the Sauna Masque, it turns out I’m just not the biggest fan of self heating masks, so I won’t be finishing the rest of this either.  I used about half of the #LipGlam lip balm, this was fine but nothing fantastic and I just couldn’t finish it up.  I did manage to use up some skin care!  Both from La Roche Posay Redermic R anti wrinkle treatment, for eyes* and for face*.  I am a fan of both of these and may repurchase in future.  I finished the Garnier Micellar Cleansing wipes* not on my face but on swatches.  I generally use baby wipes, I just had these for unknown reasons.  I quite enjoyed the Dove Maximum Protection anti-persperiant, would recommend checking it out if you need a new one.

Finally for makeup! Let’s start with products I’ve not finished again, only 2 products this time.  I almost finished the Bourjois Happy Light Matte primer, I struggled to get most of my foundations to sit well on top of this.  I think it went a bit funny towards the end.  The L’Oreal Infallible 24H Matte* foundation just didn’t sit well on my skin, I couldn’t get it to apply well at all. I finished up the No7 Instant Illusions primer and I did enjoy it and might repurchase.  I used up half of the Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint & Pencil*, the tint side, the pencil was a bit hard and it dried out.  I prefer my current NYX micro brow pencil.  Lastly we have Jordana 12H Made to Last Pencil in black.  I thoroughly enjoyed this, it was creamy and easy to work with and it wore well throughout the day.

Well done for getting through all that.  Maybe I should do empties more often.  I am planning another makeup declutter soon.
