May Product Empties No.3

It is very rare that I finish a make up product. I wore Chanel Les Beiges foundation pretty much every day. The healthy glow foundation gives a light to medium coverage and is very easy to build. Then I use the classic Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in translucent  to control shine across my forehead and nose.

I love micellar waters. I’m always up for trying new ones to see how they compare to my current favourites, Bioderma Sensibio H20 and Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. The past couple of months I’ve been testing out the Lancome version.  I like the pump bottle for ease of use, however I still prefer Bioderma. It leaves a tacky sort of feeling behind on the skin which is a little uncomfortable if I don’t follow the product up with a second cleanse or a toner. I’ve also got through several hundred cotton pads. My favourite are the Boots Double Faced Round Pads.

Skincare empties includes some of my favourite products. Another La Roche-Posay Serozinc Mist, a must in preventing those pesky blemishes, Pixi by Petra Hydrating Milky Mist, a great mist that provides an added layer of moisture before using my La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo to improve the appearance of any imperfections. Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub has been essential to combat my dry flaky lips.

It has honestly taken me years to finish my big bottle of Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash. I’ve also found a great combination of products for my bath. A Lush bath bomb and a scoop of Zoella Scooper Dooper to create beautiful bubbles.

Product Empties #1

Here are all the products I have used up in 2014, well actually probably even from 2013 as well.

I’ve never tried a hair mask before and after watching a couple of YouTubers mention the Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Mineral Hair Rescue Masque,  I thought I’d give it a try. I use it once a week and it really does make a difference in retaining the moisture in my dry hair. I’ve already bought myself another one.

This Cuticura Cucumber & Garden Mint Anti Bacterial Hand Gel doesn’t have that really strong alcohol hand gel smell, but of fresh cucumber instead. I usually transfer it into smaller travel size bottles so it’s easy to carry around.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner is my absolute favourite toner. It is brilliant at removing excess oils and clearing my skin, although I would have to say, never get it in your eyes. It stings…a lot.

The Body Shop Fuzzy Peach Bath & Shower Gel smells great!

Over the winter season the Boots Cold Defence Nasal Spray was very handy at keeping colds at bay.

I’ve gone through a ridiculous amount of blister plasters this year. Wearing a lot of flat shoes to work does take its toll. The Compeed plasters stay on for a couple of days, whereas I tend to only keep the Boots plaster on for a day as they loosen much quicker and they’re not waterproof.
