[Empties] February & March 2015

Empties

This month I finished my L’Oreal Elvive Smooth-Intense shampoo, which was absolutely fantastic. I’ve been using Herbal Essences shampoos for the last two years which I really loved because they smelled amazing and were affordable. My scalp was becoming increasing flaky and itchy though, which seems to have stopped once I switched to L’Oreal Elvive. My hair has also been a lot softer and healthier, this is a shampoo that I would definitely repurchase.

The Body Shop’s seaweed mattifying moisture lotion has been my morning face lotion for the past few months, it left my skin feeling so silky and my makeup sat really well on top of it. I’m a fan of the seaweed range in general, so would also repurchase this as it worked well on my skin and didn’t clog my pores. The only thing I would change about this product is perhaps a higher SPF, because SPF 15 just isn’t enough.

I’ve mentioned my love for both the Trilogy Ultra Hydrating Face Cream and the Byphasse cotton pads in this post. The Trilogy product is a thick and luxurious cream which is easily absorbed and smells really gorgeous, it left my skin super moisturized without making it oily or breakout. I can see why Trilogy get such amazing reviews, their products really are superior. The Byphasse cotton pads are affordable and remove my makeup without disintegrating, I will forever repurchase these unless I find a something better.

Lastly I went though a few sample products:

  • L’Oreal base magique
  • L’Oreal revitalift magic blur
  • Dr Lewinns day cream

I didn’t feel like the L’Oreal primer extended the wear of my makeup or made it look any better so I probably wouldn’t purchase the full sized product. The revitalift magic blur was okay, it was a one time sample so I couldn’t really decide if I liked it or not. The Dr Lewinns day cream was lovely, the sample size was generous and it felt good on my skin. I would have preferred it to have SPF in it though.

[Empties] June – September 2014

It’s been AGES since my last empties post (published back in May) because I go through my products at an alarmingly slow rate. Seriously, does anyone else take over two years to go through a cleanser?! I’m not complaining though, it just means that my empties posts are less frequent than everyone else’s 🙂

Empties June to September 2014

Empties June to September 2014

Gatineau Cleansing Emulsion

This cleanser was brilliant, it removed all my makeup and left my skin feeling super soft after. I bought this in the salon size (400ml) and it lasted me years. It costs around $37 but is definitely good value for money.

Repurchase?  Maybe. I currently have around 5 other cleansers in my stash that I need to get through first.

Dr Lewinn’s Facial Moisturising Lotion SPF 30+

I liked the pump packaging of this product but it made my skin feel really dry after I applied it! The consistency was thin and it absorbed well but I just didn’t like how it made my skin feel after.

Repurchase? No.

Garnier Mineral Deodorant

This is a repurchase because it’s my favourite deodorant. I’ve mentioned it a while back in my February Empties.

Repurchase? Yes.

Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner

I absolutely LOVED this eye liner, the brush was amazing and the formula lasted all day. It’s also really cheap and easy to work with. The only thing which I didn’t like was that the formula started developing lumps in it a month after I opened it.

Repurchase? No, I’m using Maybelline Master Precise at the moment which I prefer.

Other Products Used

The Body Shop’s Moisture White Toning Essence was fantastic to use but I think that it’s been discontinued. The Versace Red Jeans perfume was a perfume my mum gave to me because she bought it and didn’t like it, I found it too sweet smelling to wear so I used it to keep my cupboards smelling good. The blush was one my friend gave me, I liked it but probably wouldn’t repurchase.
