Summer Empties 2016

Monday, 8 August 2016


I feel like I've hoarded so many empties since my last empties blog in May 

This whole pile of stuff has been taking up so much space in my beauty room. Very excited that I've now been able to bin/recycle it all!


I've broken the pile down into sections...

Lets start with hair!

Frizz Ease - Miraculous Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner
I bought these two as Chloe Morello said they were the reason her hair was always so shiny...my hair has grown quite a lot recently. But I'm not sure whether this shampoo and conditioner is to thank. I don't think I'll buy it again as I like to switch up my shampoo and conditioner. Plus I like strong smelling shampoos (like herbal essences) whereas this one doesn't have a very strong scent.

Lee Stafford - Detangling Spray
Love this stuff. Basically love detangling sprays in general. They aren't just for children after the pool! 

TRESemme - Dry Shampoo
Not that keen on this is made quite a white cast on my hair and I wouldn't repurchase.

MELU - Conditioner
This stuff smells really good, but again I don't think I'd repurchase as a) I hate that its not in a squeezy tube... b) I like to switch up my shampoo/conditioner.


Next are teeth and body

Vaseline Active Fresh Deo
This is the first deodorant I ever got... about 15 years ago! (Obviously not this bottle!) I repurchase it quite a lot because I LOVE the smell :)

Dove Max Protection Deo
I love these creamy deodorants, they're the type that you wind up product. This one is not as good as the Dove one you can get in the US though so I think I'll repurchase the other type when I go to Vegas at the end of the month.

Colgate Max White Toothpaste
This toothpaste is nothing special, but I always seem to repurchase. I'm now trying out a new brand.

Listerine Stay White
 Not sure whether this is really gross but I'm just not a mouthwash person. I use an electric toothbrush but I just don't like how strong mouthwash is. Maybe I'll try a different brand!

Next are body items


Banana Aloe Vera Gel Aftersun
I love using this aftersun, it just smells like holidays to me!

Snow Fairy Shower Gel from Lush
This stuff is just a bit too sweet for me. It smells like candy floss, but as you can see its taken me since Christmas to use up...not my fave!

The Righteous Butter from Soap & Glory
This stuff smells so good! I just prefer spray moisturisers so I don't think I'll repurchase.

EOS Lipbalm
Love these...but this has a million percent gone off. I have it on my work desk and use it daily...but recently I've noticed it smells nasty! I have had it for years to be fair. Positive...it lasts a really long time!

Next we have makeup

Estee Lauder Double Wear
I never even got the chance to use this as this bottle has SUCH a pink undertone. I got this for free and tried to give it away to friends but it didn't match anyone I knew and I think its gone off now.

Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream
LOVE this stuff. I have the colour medium and I wore it to my brothers wedding as I didn't want a cake face. As you can see I cut the top off and seriously scraped everything out! I might repurchase, but I have so many foundations I probably don't need it!

Max Factor Pan Stik
This was the first concealer I got when I started going out clubbing (not this stick I repurchased it) but I actually have no idea why I liked it. Its so greasy! This is one for the bin. I think it was before I realised what concealer was meant to be like!

L'Oreal True Match Concealer - 4 Natural Beige
This stuff is really good and the colour is a dupe for NARS Custard. I'm currently in love with the Maybelline Fit Me concealer so I don't think I'll repurchase at the moment.

Sleek Eyeliner
This dried out really quickly...but for the short while I used it it was good. I won't repurchase as I don't even really like felt tip liners!

Finally we have skin care

Caudalie - Thirst Quenching Serum
I've used two tubes of this, as I got them free, but it didn't wow me particularily. I still used it up because "waste not want not".

Burt's Bees - Deep Cleansing Cream
This stuff was really good and smelt delish! I might repurchase, but again I have so many I want to try that something has to really wow me to be repurchased.

Body Shop - Vitamin E Face Mist
I love this stuff (I keep it on my desk at work) but I just don't like the smell. It smells like roses. I now have the Vitamin C one which smells like oranges so I prefer that.

Makeup Academy - Pro Base Fixing Mist
The spray on this was really big and chunky so I poured this into another bottle and it does work well. I prefer my L'Oreal one though

Bioderma - Micellar Water
This is the best out of all the Micealler Waters I've tried, but I prefer using an oil cleanser to remove my makeup.

Liz Earle - Skin Repair Moisturiser
Love this stuff...love all Liz Earle, but I'm really enjoying my Body Shop Moisturiser at the mo so I won't repurchase.



God that was LONG! If you've read until the end thank you :)
