It’s been quite a while since I’ve done an empties post, so here’s some of the products I used up the past two months.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
The first two months of using this mascara, I absolutely hated it. I found the handle chunky and awkward to hold and the mascara far too wet. However, once the mascara dried out, it made my lashes look thick and fluttery and I found myself pretty impressed.
Repurchase? I would give it another chance.
Ole Henriksen Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths
I got these cleansing cloths in my Look Fantastic advent calendar and I was really excited to try them out, but they were truly awful!
I like citrus scented products, but these smelt like floor wipes. They were also too thick and I had to use three wipes just to remove light makeup. Not impressed.
Repurchase? Definitely not!
Sephora Rose Face Mask
When I did a product swap with Stashy recently, she sent me this Sephora sheet mask and I loved it! It’s the first time I’ve tried a mask from Sephora and this moisture one worked wonders.
I have combination skin, but after my recent holiday my skin looked a bit dull and dehydrated. This mask provided a tonne of moisture and would be amazing to pack for flights or to use if you have very dry skin.
Repurchase? Yes! If I’m ever on holiday near a Sephora, I’ll be stocking up.
Boots Cucumber Eye Gel
This has been one of my go-to products for a long time and it’s super affordable too. I use this first thing in the morning to cool my under-eye area and reduce any puffiness. This really helps make my eyes feel fresh and more awake, so I can’t be without it.
Repurchase? I already have.
Lush Tea Tree Toner Water
This is another product that I’ve been using for years. Lush’s toners are incredibly gentle and don’t strip the skin of moisture, which is why I love them.
Repurchase? I already have.
Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme
When I bought some Nip + Fab bits a while back, it worked out that I could get another item for only a few pound more, so I picked this up.
These pads are meant to be great at decongesting skin, reducing pores and getting rid of dead skin, but for me it did the opposite and made all of these issues worse.
Cristophe Robin Regenerating Hair Mask
This is another item that I got in my Look Fantastic advent calendar. I took this on holiday with me to use after my visit to the Blue Lagoon and initially I was impressed with how soft this mask left my hair. However, even after a few uses the ends of my hair were still dry.
Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Coconut Breeze
I got this Elasticizer in the Tili Beauty Box and I found it amazing! You can apply this as a mask before shampooing and conditioning or leave it on overnight for a more intense treatment.
I used this before shampooing and it left my hair feeling soft and in great condition.
Repurchase? Yes. I definitely need the full sized tube of this.
The Body Shop Spiced Apple and Cocoa Butter Shower Gels
I got both of these for Christmas and the Spiced Apple one which was limited edition, smelt fantastic. It had a spicy but sweet smell that I loved, I just wish I’d stocked up.
I tried the Cocoa Butter shower gel for the first time and didn’t like it at all. Despite loving other Cocoa Butter items from The Body Shop, this shower gel had a strange, off smell that wasn’t pleasant.
Repurchase? If the Spiced Apple shower gel was still available I would, but no to the Cocoa Butter one.
Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products.
