Oh my god I just had a look to see when I did my last empties post, and it was all the way back in April so definitely time for a new one. I love making these posts, as finishing a product means you’ve really had a chance to test it. Because of the amount of empties I had, I have only featured products I haven’t featured before in these posts, and will instead shortly be writing a re-purchased products post.
Anyway time for me to stop yabbering, and to get on with the post. First product up is the Batiste Dry Shampoo in Original. I actually normally go for the volumising version, but recently stole my mums and actually decided I loved the fresh smell so thought I’d give this one a go. As to what I think, I love Batiste dry shampoo. I find it always freshens up my hair, and lifts it without leaving any residue. I’m tempted to try the Dove one but having being loyal to Batiste for so long and knowing I love the product it’s kinder hard to switch.
I also finally ran out of my Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Leave-in Conditioner, don’t you find leave-in conditioners last for like ever? Or is it just me? That aside, I love the way this product helps me easily detangles my hair. The smell reminds me of holidays, and a hair detangler/leave-in conditioner is a definite must-have product for me. If you haven’t delved into leave-in conditioners yet this is a great starter one. It does it’s job, and doesn’t leave my hair greasy or anything.
The Avene Hydrating Soothing Serum was something I was gutted to run out of. I loved this product, and can definitely find myself repurchasing it at some stage. I love the way it not only helps enhance maximum hydration, but how it also helped calm down any redness. Whilst using this serum I never found myself to randomly go red throughout the day, a definite benefit of this serum for me.
Next up is The Body Shop Honey Bubble-bath Melt. I have been using this product on and off for a while now and have to say I do really like it. I love how a little product creates so many bubbles, and how it always leaves my skin lovely and soft after a bath before even moisturising. The smell is also luxurious. The only thing I wish this product came with is one of those honey twisting wooden products, like the one included in Laura Mercier bathing products. You can work around this though, I have been using a spoon to encourage less wastage.
Ooh, the Herbal Essences Bee Strong Intensive Conditioner is one product I have seen mixed reviews about, but I am definitely on the love side of things. I brought this randomly on an offer and I am glad I did. I’m not sure about strengthening but I did find it made a noticeable difference to the amount of tangles I got in my hair when used weekly. I really enjoy the smell that is still noticeable after showering, and can definitely see myself repurchasing.
The Soap & Glory Flake Away Scrub has been a favourite of mine for a long time now, and a product I always seem to go back to. I love how I can actually feel and see this product working, and getting rid of dead skin cells. It has been a saviour with regards to helping control my eczema, and always leaves those areas far smoother than I’m expecting – all I need is a good moisturiser and my skin immediately looks a lot clearer. The smell, as usual with Soap & Glory products is divine. I definitely recommend you pick this up if you haven’t already tried it.
Ahh, the Sleek Brow Stylist, I think this has to be my favourite brow product to try ever. Yes, that’s a bold statement but this product is the perfect shape to enhance my brows, and a great colour match without making them too dark. Being blonde I sometimes find this hard. I also love the spoolie attached. I won’t say too much more as I’m always mentioning the product, but it is an amazing product and if you want to know more I have written a review previously.
Lastly is a product I have had since Christmas and have been delaying the inevitable. The YSL Baby Doll Mascara is designed to transform your lashes by separating them and adding volume. This definitely does do that, but I have to say I wasn’t as amazed by the product as I was expecting, and as much as I love the prettiness of the packaging I’m not sure it will be getting a repurchase from me.
And that’s the end of my long overdue empties post. I hope you didn’t mind it being so long and enjoyed having a nose into the products I’ve used up over the last couple of months.
What products have you used up lately? Have you tried any of the products I’ve mentioned?
