  • Empties #2


    I’m so backed up with empties it’s getting ridiculous, I need to blog about them more often!

    Following on from my first empties post, here is another lot of products I’ve finished off recently. Or just given up on because it was so horrible. Can you guess what that product was from the photo?

    Ojon Damage Repair Hair Spray – Unfortunately this product is no longer available on the Ojon site for whatever reason but you can still get it from Boots. I bought this such a long time ago when I was on the Ojon hype. It’s a fairly standard size of hairspray and it was pretty pricey, although no more costly than any other product from Ojon. This is a fairly light hold hairspray with a strong scent and a fine mist when sprayed, however I’m not sure how I feel about the repair claims. Personally I wouldn’t spend £24 on a hairspray again, now I think about it it’s madness.

    LOreal Skin Perfection Micellar Water – I did a bit of a comparison of this product in a previous post reviewing the Garnier Micellar water. I do like this water, it does an all right job at removing 80% of your makeup. I just prefer the Garnier one and you get less product in this one although I don’t think there’s much difference in the price.

    Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover – I used this along side the micellar water. This product had a double layer of water and oil that you had to mix up. This did a really good job at removing stubborn eye makeup, again I don’t think I’ve found anything that removes makeup completely. It does leave a bit of a residue on your face but if you follow it up with the micellar water then that removes anything left.

    Soap & Glory Peaches and Cream – This is a product that I was first introduced to by Mel almost a year ago as a sample size and I liked it so much that I purchased it in full size. The smell is a bit off putting, it’s not my favourite but it leaves your face feeling super fresh, it almost feels tingly on your skin. I loved using this in the morning cause it completely wakes you up. The only downside is that you can’t get all the product out so you’re wasting a bit, it took me so long to get that last little bit out of it, it was a bit of a pain.

    Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash – Now this is the product that I just can’t stand. I picked it up on a whim because I had run out of any other cleansers and I love the smell of pink grapefruit. This however, is gross, it feels horrible on your skin because it barely foams up, the smell is less than appealing. Just all round not nice, it reminds me of a product you’d buy as a teenager.

    Soap & Glory Ultimelt Cleansing Balm – As you can see I was on a bit of a Soap and Glory love in. I purchased this at the same time as the Peaches and Clean. I used to use this in the evenings to ‘melt’ the last bits of makeup away. The scent of it was really relaxing which helped chill you out in the evening. I do really rate Soap and Glory cleansing products.

    Anne Semonin Bath And Shower Gel – I got this product in a set, I think it was at the northern meetup held by Em. Before then I’d never heard of the brand before so it was a nice treat to be introduced to it. It feels luxurious and it smells like sherbet, its a really nice refreshing smell that I’ve not smelt from any other product.

    Happy Monday! I thought I’d start the week with a clear out of empties.

    Loreal Skin Perfection Cleansing And Perfecting Milk – I bought this product in combination with the Loreal Micellar water. I wanted this as the initial makeup remover to get the majority of my makeup off at the end of the day. For that purpose it really did do the job but I can’t really think of anything wowing about this product, I wouldn’t say its a bad product, and for the price it’s really good, but I will probably keep buying different ones until I find one that wows me.

    Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer – This product is one of my all time favourite products, it smells incredible, it feels incredible when used on your face and it’s just so refreshing. This product is great to use after you’ve used a cleanser to get the majority of your makeup off, I usually use this twice, once then and then again after I’ve had a proper cleanse in the bathroom with whatever product and a muslin cloth. This will be a product that I will repurchase and repurchase again, it’s not cheap, but I think it’s worth it.

    Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner – This product was the first product that I ever bought because of reading blogs, OK it’s not your average blog but it was when Lauren Conrad recommended this that I jumped at the chance. I hate to admit it but I had had this product for almost 2 years, bad I know, but I’ve made it my mission to use all the products I already own before buying any more. I did love this product, and it did help with the condition of my hair but it’s best for de-tangling your hair after having a shower.

    John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo – I’m forever buying different shampoos and conditioners, I think I bought this when it first came out. I’m always sucked in when it comes to products that promise thicker hair. I’m not 100% sure how successful it was with this product but I also don’t think I used it consistently enough to see the benefit.

    Origins Make A Difference+ Rejuvenating Treatment – I’m a massive fan of Origins products, I have had a number of them over the time. This product I bought with hopes that it would cure my dry skin woes. I ended up using this as a daily moisturiser. It was never a cure but it definitely helped with the dryness of my face.

    YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat foundation – This has got to be one of my favourite foundations ever.I was gutted when this ran out, I even went to lengths to try and get it to last as long as possible. I’d have said the colour may have been a tad pale for me but it was all right when bronzed up. It was the perfect combination of fuller coverage but natural looking on the skin. If it wasn’t for the price tag and the fact I have about 10 other foundations to use up I’d have gone out and repurchased this.

    Have you tried any of these products yourselves?
