I have been accumulating quite the stash of empties to give a lightening review on for you all over the month of December.
December saw me use up two cleansers including my Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel (sad face). This is my favourite cleanser ever. It smells divine, melts make up away easily and leaves my skin feeling nourished. I will definitely be repurchasing.
I also finished my Nude Skincare Nourishing Cleansing Oil. I liked this but didn’t love it. It lasted a long time and was gentle enough to use around my eyes etc. but the scent wasn’t great which kind of put me off. I probably won’t repurchase this one.
Mask wise, I finished my REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. This is a cult exfoliating mask and it has cult status for a reason. It’s amazing. My skin always looks so fresh and glowing after using it. I will repurchase this when I have used up my PTR pumpkin enzyme mask.
Another staple product to make it to the empties pile is my Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. I absolutely love this stuff. It works like magic and I use this to take my eye make up off now as it’s so gentle. I have already repurchased this.
I also finished up two moisturisers from Origins. Firstly, the High Potency Night-A-Mins which was luxuriously thick with a lovely fruity scent. I would repurchase, but have others to try before doing so. Secondly, I used up my pot of Ginzing energy boosting moisturiser. This is a more lightweight gel come cream with a fresh orange citrus scent which I loved using in the mornings to wake me up. I will repurchase but probably in the Summer.
I used up my Soap and Glory Sugar Crush body scrub, body wash and body butter. This is my second tub of the scrub in 2015 and I absolutely love it. The scent is amazing, and the scrub is grainy enough to feel like it’s doing something, but not so harsh that it irritates my skin. The wash lasts forever and doesn’t dry my skin out and the butter sinks in well and leaves my skin extremely nourished. I will definitely repurchase the full set after I have used some others up in my stash.
I finished up a bottle of Cocoa Butter beautifying oil from the Body Shop. The scent on this is nice and the oil sinks in very quickly which is great. I will repurchase, but I might try another scent.
I also used up a mini pot of L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate body butter. I adore this scent. I used this with the Almond Shower oil and couldn’t stop smelling myself afterwards. I will definitely buy the full size.
I finished two MAC eyebrow pencils in Lingering. I try other brow products, but always come back to these beauties. The pencil is so slim and does a great job at naturally filling in my brows. I already have another one of these from my Christmas stash.
I also used half of a Maybelline Illegal Length waterproof mascara which I didn’t like at all. I found this a much drier texture to what I am used to and the results were not to be considered “illegal length” by my standards at
Finally, my MAC brush cleanser has been used up. I liked this, but didn’t think it was amazing. I kind of think that I could achieve the same results with my baby shampoo. I might repurchase, but not for a while yet.
Have you all tried any of these products? What were your thoughts?
