I honestly didn’t expect to be posting another Empties post so quickly – it’s been almost two months since the last post, I guess time has just flown by! Plus I’ve been doing mini purges as I’ve gone along. I’m no longer holding on to products that just don’t work for me! Plus I’m making a serious effort to use up other products….like my stash of facemasks!
Let’s start with the makeup empties. My Covergirl Outlast stay fabulous foundation is not quite empty, but sadly it no longer works well for me, so I’m getting rid. This is a great full coverage foundation but I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing or purchasing the Max Factor equivalent. I have 3 mascaras this time! The Makeup Revolution Amazing Volume, which was fine but I’m not repurchasing. The Lancome Volume mascara* sample, which I really loved and I might one day purchase this. Loved it. The final mascara is the Jordana Best Length Extreme*, I tried this once and it fell down on my very badly, I mean I had black smudges until my eyes really badly. So it went straight to empties. I’ve quite a few skin care products this month, between making myself use up my stash of face masks & the mini purge. So I’m going to list them and link reviews if they’re about. Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask* will definitely repurchase, two peel off masks from Montagne Jeunesse, definitely repurchase, Ren Glycolatic Radiance Renewal mask* I will definitely repurchase in future too!
I’m getting rid of the Olay Anti Wrinkle Instant Hydration day cream* it doesn’t work for me. I finished up the No7 Softening Foot Balm* as a hand cream, it was lovely and I might repurchase in future. I’ve finished up another Vichy Pureté Thermale refreshing toner*, I’m testing out a different toner for now. I’m getting rid of the L’Oreal Skin Perfection Advanced Correcting Serum*, it just clogged up my skin sadly. From The Body Shop I have a sample of the Vitamin C Glow Boosting moisturiser which I quite enjoyed and may investigate in future, I’m also getting rid of the Vitamin C Daily Moisturiser* (review here), this just did not work for me. Getting rid of both the Elemis Pro-Radiance Flash Balm* and No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum*, neither did my skin any favours so they’re being binned. I’ve finished up another Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water*, I have already repurchased!
Lastly I have the kits I’ve been using to dye my hair. I used the ColourB4 Hair Colour Remover to remove previous dye – this worked ok, I’m not sure I’d use it again. I used multiple kits of the Jerome Russell Maximum Blonding Kit, I’m not sure I’d recommend this kit, I had to use almost 8 boxes in order to bleach my hair. To create my mermaid hair I used Bleach London Aquamonious Colour Kit*, in fact I used about 3! I did want the full sizes but they weren’t in stock. I’m going to go with Sea punk in future, it suits me the most! Well maybe with a touch of Washed Up Mermaid too…
