The Empties: May 2015

DSC_4561It’s a strange thing in the beauty world – Empties. With a capital E; showing off what is essentially your trash is a bit weird. However, a true test of a product is if you’ve finished it or not. Most of us won’t use up something if we didn’t get on with it, sure we may get a bit tired of it after a while but I can attest to myself that if I’ve used it up I probably like it. Will I be buying it again? Good question.

So here we are, me my trash and you. I’ll quickly breeze thru the products, we’ve got the last remnant of a NEOM candle set I got during the holidays beautiful candle that had a good burn and pleasant scent. In the hair department I finished off a Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray and am now well into another bottle, same goes for the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Mask but I’ve switched over to the frizz reducing version. In terms of makeup I finally finished off a foundation! The YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat in B20 which as a smidgen too light but was gorgeous on the skin and mixed extremely well with heavier foundations. Skincare is the main category and in it we’ve got the Clinique Super City Block SPF 40 sunscreen, which was fine but not a wowzer like the Radical SkinCare Sun Screen SPF 30, Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate which is a beautiful oil but I’ve so many others I’ll hold on repurchasing. The Caudalie Beauty Elixir doesn’t need introducing, and the Korres Rose Brighting Mask was cute but not much more than that. Lastly all the Origins moisturisers I polished off from the Night-A-Mins night cream, which I’ve already repurchased and am using now, to the Ginzing that’s the same and the Make a Difference + that I’m waiting on winter to repurchase.

So those were my Empties! Do you like these types of posts/video? What have you finally finished off?

  • I love empties videos cause you can actually get a proper review after you used up a product. I find that I mainly go through skincare, I haven’t hit pan on any makeup in awhile or finished a foundation since I get a lot of choices.

      I 100% agree – if I’ve finished it off I probably like it, or at the very least can give a proper review of it. It’s still a bit strange to share your junk with the internet though…

  • I adore Neom candles, but their prices make my eyes water haha.

  • The Origins GinZing is my favourite moisturizer. I’ve been completely obsessed with it since I bought it. If only it has some SPF in it!

      I actually like that it doesn’t have any SPF – I’d rather add it in on my own! It’s the scent that totally won me over.

    Caudalie is always one of my go-tos. Great roundup!
