SKINCARE EMPTIES

 

I totally meant to do a blog post on my empties collection, but I completely forgot about it and its been sitting in my wardrobe for about 3 months! I dug all the products back out & I’m here to tell you what I’ll be repurchasing…

SIMPLE DUAL EFFECT EYE MAKEUP REMOVER

I really like using eye makeup removers that have a dual effect and you can shake to activate it! They seem to remove my eye makeup SO well, although that being said, I don’t use *that* much on my eyes, only a bit of nude eyeshadow and mascara, so I’m not sure how good it is on getting winged liner off. All that being said, it’s kind to my sensitive eyes and doesn’t sting! Plus, its super cheap.
REPURCHASE? Most definitely at some point.

 

EMMA HARDIE CLEANSING BALM

I’ve only ever used this cleanser in the mini version, simply because it’s £40 for the full size, which for me is a bit expensive. I adore this though, and it feels so luxury to use, and smells so lovely! It’s like a little pot of heaven.
REPURCHASE? In the mini version? Yup. Not sure I would go for the full size, maybe as a treat.

 

SMASHBOX PRIMER WATER

I’ve classed this as skincare, because I used it as a facial spray aswell as a primer. (It works great for both, BTW). I think this lasted me the longest any product ever has, it was literally months on end. I’m definitely not complaining though because it was £20 and you got a lot out of your pennies. I found it really hydrating on the skin and I liked using it every day.
REPURCHASE? I think I would, yes.

 

PIXI GLOW TONIC

This is a cult classic isn’t it? Did it bring the glow? Yes it did! Again, I had the mini version which didn’t seem to last that long, but I’m glad I got to experience the popular product. It didn’t break me out or wasn’t too drying, which a lot of toners can be, but sometimes on sensitive days it can feel a bit harsh.
REPURCHASE? I can’t see myself buying it again anytime soon, I’ve got other toners I enjoy using.

 

REN DAY CREAM

After having a bad experience with REN cleansing milk, I didn’t have high hopes for this moisturiser. Fortunately, I didn’t have another bad reaction and I feel like we got on quite well. Its quite calming on the skin, and a little goes a long way. I enjoyed using it, but it wasn’t anything amazing to me.
REPURCHASE? No, I don’t think I would as I didn’t love it, and I’ve found better moisturisers I like.

 

Have you tried any of these products?

  • I love the Emma Hardie cleansing balm, I have purchased it twice, once the mini version and the second the full size but I then ended up throwing the full size away before finishing it as it got very dirty. Great post!
