Empties #2

skincare makeup empties empty products

I’ve quite a few empty products this time, a bit more than my first empty post of the year.  Let’s start with skin care.  I have used up another Camomile Sumptuous cleansing butter* from The Body Shop, I’m already using another tub. I’m also already half way through another bottle of the Vichy Pureté Thermale Refreshing toner*, love it.  I’ve also quite a few samples of skin care, hair care & body care products from Jason, I didn’t really enjoy these so I won’t be rushing out to purchase any full sizes.  Now for moisturisers!  I’ve finished the Avene Skin Recovery cream, love this stuff but I do go through stages with it, I’ve no doubt I’ll repurchase at some point.  I’ve a mostly full Vichy Normaderm Hydrating Care*, I just didn’t get on with this sadly, I’ve done a review post on a few of the Normaderm products. The 3rd moisturiser is the Aloe Soothing Moisture Lotion* SPF15, this was a good moisturiser, but I need something a bit more hydrating.  I’ve a sample of the Elemis skin clear mattifying moisturiser.  I’m not a fan of this, it’s only half used, my skin didn’t like it at all.  From Montague Juenesse I tried the 7th Heaven Blemish Mud mask.  Sadly this is one of the few masks from Montague Juenesse that I don’t enjoy.  I have an empty Nivea Express Hydration Primer*, my husband ended up using most of this, another thing that didn’t agree with my skin.  I tested out a Manuka Doctor Bee Venom & Manuka Honey Skincare trial set, with a rejuvenating face mask, age defying serum and restoring night cream.  I will definitely be investigating the rejuvenating face mask, I wasn’t fussed with the other two.  I’ve an empty tub of the Rodial Glamoxy 15% Fruit Acid Exfoliating Pads, I have a review on these here.  I prefer my Clarins Gentle Exfoliator.   For Makeup I have a dried up Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof kohl liner*, I may repurchase in future once I used up the rest of my black liners.  I also have a dried up Maybelline Color Tattoo* in Eternal Gold, really did not use this often enough before it entirely.

hair care, body care,

Now for hair care and body care.  We’ll start with the hair care samples.  I tried out and loved the Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter*, I will definitely check this out again in future. I’ve a L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil*, I was a bit underwhelmed by this, I’ve other hair oils I prefer.  I’ve a Caring Shine Conditioner that was left over from a hair dying kit, I tend to bring these with me when I travel, handy hair mask.  I have a trial size of the Giovanni Smooth As Silk Deep Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner.  I’ve done a full review of them, I’m not a fan.  Two hair styling products from VO5, the plump it up amplifying blow dry lotion* and the give me texture tousled style spray*.  I wasn’t a fan of either of these, I just couldn’t get them to work for my hair.  I did manage to finish the plump it up, but only finished half of the give me texture. I completely finished a pot of Steam Cream* moisturiser.  I love this stuff and I will one day buy a pot, really love the scent and how much it hydrated my skin.  From Caudalíe Thé Des Vignes Shower Gel*, I really enjoyed this.  It has a floral musky scent that lingers on the skin, I thoroughly enjoyed getting wafts of the scent throughout my day.  Will likely buy a full size of this in future.  I’ve finished the Aveeno Skin Relief  Restore & Protect hand cream The last body product is the Sanctuary Body Butter* travel size moisturiser.  I love Sanctuary’s various body lotions and creams and this is no exception.  I love to take these with me when I travel, it’s a little touch of luxury on the go.
