Empties lately #2

Empties reviewed

So, I last did an empties post in August, so I am apparently terrible at keeping up with writing empties posts, but I’m back, this time with the last couple of months of empties. I actually have even more empties since taking these photos so I’ll try and get my next empties post up in January, but anyway, time to get on with today’s post.

Empties lately, reviewed

First up is a product I feel like I’ve talked about so, soo much on my blog – it’s the LA Girl Pro BB Cream. This BB cream is such a gorgeous formula, it’s very similar to the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue in how moisturising but light it feels on the skin, the glowy finish, and the fact that it provides some coverage. I’m very sad it’s run out as I’m trying my best to use up a few more existing base products before I pick up more.
Would I repurchase? Yes.

The Nars All Day Luminous Weightless foundation is another base product I’ve finished up lately, or mostly finished. I loved this foundation so much when I first picked it up but unfortunately over time I’ve grown to dislike it finding the foundation to break up so quickly around my nose, but the thing that caused me to decide enough was enough, was the fact that the foundation has completely oxidised and the foundation that was a perfect shade now looks orange on me! It’s such a shame as I really did used to like it.
Would I repurchase? No.

Another product I’ve used up lately is the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Hand Food, one of my favourite ever hand creams. I absolutely adore the lime sugar crush fragrance so this is like heaven on my hands. It’s also incredibly moisturising and leaves my hands super soft.
Would I repurchase? Yes.

Empties from The Body Shop, The Ordinary and Una Brennan

Next up is the Una Brennan Super Facialist Cleansing Oil, an incredible product. I switched up my skincare earlier this year and of the three cleansers I purchased, this was my absolute favourite and is also the only one I’ve finished so far. I love how easily it takes off my makeup and that it works great as a face mask too, my only problem is why is this product not available with a pump? It drives me insane and for that reason alone I haven’t repurchased it this time around and have gone with a different cleanser, with a pump.
Would I repurchase? Yes, but please make a pump already.

The Body Shop Moisturising Night Cream and Intense Moisture Cream are two products I’ve mentioned plenty of times on my blog, and I’ve now used another two up of. The night cream is a night cream that sinks in easily and provides plenty of moisture, whilst the intense moisture cream is the perfect day cream which injects a little more moisture than your average day cream, perfect for these colder months.
Would I repurchase? Yes and yes.

I’ve also used up The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid, another incredible product and probably my favourite that I’ve tried from The Ordinary. Since picking this up earlier in the year it has made such a difference to my skin, and helped clear up any slightly drier patches. It even helped with my sunburn in Thailand. I just wish it wasn’t always only in stock on The Ordinary’s website as I don’t want to pay delivery for one item, but I am really missing having this in my collection.
Would I repurchase? Yes.

The last couple of empties this month are two dry shampoos, a product I use pretty much every day. The first one is the Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo in Uplifting Volume, a dry shampoo that I was hoping I would love but I really didn’t. It didn’t give me any more volume than any other dry shampoos, but the most frustrating part was how much I could feel this product in my hair. It left my hair feeling so heavy that I had to hide away any other dry shampoos to make sure I used this one, a feeling I’ve never had with any other dry shampoo.
Would I repurchase? No.

The other dry shampoo is the Soap & Glory The Rushower Dry Shampoo, a dry shampoo I much preferred. This one was the complete opposite and it felt so incredibly light on my hair, so much so I never noticed I was wearing it. The dry shampoo refreshed my hair inbetween washes, instantly reviving it. I love the scent too.
Would I repurchase? Yes.

What beauty products have you used up lately? Have you tried any of the products I’ve mentioned?
