[Empties] January 2014

Happy Sunday to my beautiful followers! Today I have my first ever empties post. Unfortunately I don’t seem to go through a lot of products so my empties posts are probably going to be really short.


The Body Shop Vitamin C Cleansing Facial Polish

The product has a citrus scent which is really refreshing to use in the mornings. It leaves the skin feeling fresh and clean without being drying. The beads are a great exfoliant and is soft enough for daily use.

Repurchase? Yes

Maybelline Hyperglossy Liquid Eyeliner

The writing on the packaging has completed faded for some reason. This was a good liquid eyeliner, very pigmented and lasted all day without smudging and fading. I’m not too keen on is the brush, it’s tricky to use and started fraying after around five months. But overall, it’s an affordable product and gives good results.

Repurchase? Maybe

Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eyeliner

Highly pigmented, easy to use and lasts all day. The only downside is that this eyeliner is a bit on the pricey side compared to other brands I’ve used.

Repurchase? Already repurchased.

The Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Home Fragrance

I adore scented candles and home fragrances and this was the perfect addition to my collection. You can pick these up for around $6 on sale and they really give the room an amazing scent.

Repurchase? Already repurchased.

The Body Shop Born Lippy lipbalm in strawberry

Yay! I’m so proud of myself for actually finishing a lip product, even though it did take me two years haha. I love this lipbalm, it leaves my lips so soft and smells so yummy.

Repurchase? Already repurchased.

Busby Pure Tissue Oil

I received this as a sample and the size was actually quite generous as you can see. It had a spray attachment which I loved, made application much easier. I’m not sure how much I liked the tissue oil though, it didn’t fade my dark spots but did help a little with stretch marks.

Repurchase? Probably not.


Clean & Clear Essentials Toner

I was expecting this product to dry my skin out but was pleasantly surprised, it had a lovely scent and felt quite nice on my skin.

Purchase the full size product? Maybe..I don’t really use toner though.

Palmers Massage Lotion for stretchmarks

I don’t really get the point of giving out a sample for this because it had around two uses which obviously couldn’t give me an indication of how well the product works. Also, the lotion had a medical smell that I found awful.

Purchase the full size product?Β No.

Palmers Cocoa Butter Lotion

First time this and I absolutely LOVE the scent! The lotion was also really good, moisturing and absorbed fast.

Purchase the full size product?Β Yes

L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil

This oil really is extraordinary, it took my hair from dry to healthy in a few days and made it so much easier to manage. The scent is okay, not exactly my favourite but I loved the results so not complaining!

Purchase the full size product? Yes!! As soon as I get through all my current hair products.

This post was longer than I expected, but I enjoyed writing it πŸ™‚

Until next time!

  1. I love citrus scented cleansers, masks, etc. I might check out that Vitamin C Cleansing Facial Polish. I’ve yet to find my holy grail cleanser 😦

    1. The Vitamin C range is pretty good! I hope that you find your HG soon πŸ™‚ There’s so many brands out there to try that it can get overwhelming!

  2. I did have the Body Shop Born Lippy in Watermelon and it was so good! But I lost it after 2 weeks :(. Does the Strawberry one have a red tint to it? xxx

    1. Ah that’s a shame 😦 The strawberry only leaves the slightest bit of tint. There’s more shine than color actually, but that’s just on me πŸ™‚
