Product Empties!

Hey guys! I hope you are well and having a fab weekend! I have been busy packing as I am going to Amsterdam tomorrow and I am super excited! I’ve never been before and already have a long list of things I would like to do and see whilst I’m there. Let me know if you have been before and if there is anywhere or any food places that you would recommend. So lets get onto todays post and I thought that I would do a product empties as I have accumulated quite a few things and want to share my thoughts on the products and whether I would re-purchase them.


Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation – I love this foundation! Until a better one comes along I will use this everyday! It is on the more pricy side but I think its worth it, plus if you live near a designer outlet its £21 rather than £31! I have re-purchased this as I love it!

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic – I have had this bottle for ages! I thought it was never going to run out, which is a good thing! This is the first product that I use on a morning, it freshens my skin and helps prepare it before applying makeup. I really enjoy using this product and although I haven’t yet re-purchased it, I definitely intend to. Also, little tip with this, I buy the full size bottle but when I first decided to try it I bought the mini spray bottle and I just pour the toner from the big bottle into the spray one as I find it much easier and quicker on a morning!

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream – This is the second product that I use on a morning and I love it! It’s such a light moisturiser which is why its a good base for makeup. It keeps my skin moisturised and because its part of the Aloe range it is really gentle on the skin. I have re-purchased this and will continue to.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream – The packaging has slightly changed on this now but it is still the same moisturiser. This is a much more thicker moisturiser but it sinks in beautifully and really helps put back any moisture thats lost through out the day into my face and leave it feeling really soft. I have also re-purchased this as I love using it on an evening before bed.

The Body Shop Instablur All In One Primer – I promise this isn’t sponsored by The Body Shop, I just love their products! I have used this primer for a long time now. It’s the third step in my morning skin care routine and it just finishes off my base perfectly. It blur out my pores and helps keep my makeup in one place. I have, of course, re-purchased this as it is the best primer I have found so far!


So thats all of the products that I have used up over the last few months! Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these products.

I hope you enjoyed this post! See you soon.

Product’s I’ve Used Up!

Hey lovelies! Happy Halloween! I hope you had a fab weekend. I have decided to do a post on some of the products that I have used up as the drawer where I keep them was getting a bit full! I am also going to let you know whether I would re-purchase them so if you’re interested in hearing a bit more about these products then keep reading! 🙂


Millefiori Velvet Candle – So before using this I had never tried Millefiori before but my best friends mum sells them in her shop and she very kindly gave this one to me for my birthday. The scent is called Velvet which to me smells quite floral but not super sweet floral. The website says – ‘A floral bouquet embracing and velvety, with fruity accents, wood and musk.’ I did really enjoy burning this candle as every now and then you would get the scent. In terms of purchasing again I would probably go for a reed diffuser instead as I find that they make the room smell nicer for longer but if you are more into candles then they are lovely candles and Velvet smells beautiful!

Treacle Moon One Ginger Morning Shower Gel – My partners parents bought this for me at Christmas purely because I am ginger and the name obviously says ‘One Ginger Morning’ which they thought was hilarious! I am really glad they got it though as it smells amazing and as soon as I can find it at my local Tesco’s I will re-purchase. It’s definitely a good shower gel for the morning as the name suggests because its such a sweet citrus scent it will wake you up and make you feel super fresh!

Dove Anti-Perspirant Pomegranate & Lemon – I love this spray so I had to include it. It smells so lovely but when you’ve sprayed it you can’t smell it all day which is what I like, obviously it makes you smell nice and keeps you fresh, but it’s not overpowering to the point where I can smell it when I’m sat at my desk at work. I have already re-purchased and have the roll on deodorant to go with it!

Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil Dark Blonde – This is the first brow pencil I’ve found that’s light enough for my super blonde eyebrows! I really like the fact that it can be built up or kept very minimal. The only thing I don’t like is that the pencil is very delicate and when sharpening it has broken off a few times. However, I have re-purchased as I am still to find one that’s light enough. If you can recommend one then please let me know :).

L’Oreal Extraordinary Clay Shampoo – This shampoo is so good! It is especially for oily roots and dry end which is exactly my hair! I have been using this for ages now and it hasn’t changed how it makes my hair look as usually after time some shampoos make my hair get greasy quicker than usual but that hasn’t happened so far. It smells lovely, the colour of the packaging is so pretty and I have re-purchased and will continue to!

So thats it for this post, I hope you enjoyed it!

See you soon!
