This is my first empties post! I was going to do one in February but didn’t have enough empties. I like to read other people’s monthly empties posts because you can discover new products and find out what works and be inspired.
Benefit They’re Real Tinted Primer
I have purchased this 3 times now! I can’t put mascara on now without wearing it, it just doesn’t feel right without it. It is mink brown in colour, so you can use it as a natural looking mascara, or put a coat of black mascara over the top.
Benefit ‘Gimme Brow’
I have the lightest shade here which is for blonde hair. Even though it is meant for blonde hair, it is still quite dark (I have dark blonde hair so it works well for me). I love all of Benefit’s eyebrow products, but this is my favourite.
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Lip Balm
This lip balm is from the ‘8 Hour’ range by Elizabeth Arden. It’s designed to provide moisture for 8 hours, so I used it as a night lip balm. It was like any other lip balm, to be honest- I have used cheaper ones before which were just as good! I wouldn’t repurchase this as there are cheaper alternatives.
L’OREAL Telescopic Mascara
Sorry, I forgot to add it to the picture below! I got this mascara in my Latest In Beauty subscription box (click here to read my review). This mascara has a thin plastic wand that I really like. This is the second time I have purchased this mascara.
Bath & Body
Baylis & Harding Hand Cream
I have used Baylis & Harding products before because they sell a wide range of products, and everything always smells so good. However, this hand cream isn’t one of those products! It’s supposed to smell of coconut & lime, but I can hardly smell anything. It also isn’t moisturising and it irritated my skin.
Radox Vapour Therapy Bath Salts
These bath salts smell so nice! I think I got around 6 baths out of this packet. The best things about these salts are the price- I bought these for £1 from Pound Stretchers. I would buy these bath salts again without hesitation.
Superdrug Nourishing Bath Crème
This is a bubble bath, but it’s a little thicker than usual. It smells of shea butter, vanilla and almond- it smells so nice! The only negative is that you have to use quite a lot to get a decent amount of bubbles, it is cheap though so it doesn’t really matter.
Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Lotion
I have been using this lotion for so many years! I use this twice a day: I use it in the morning to refresh my face, and at night time to remove my make up. Just make sure you don’t put it near your eyes, it really stings! This product works perfectly for me and I hope they never discontinue this product.
Urban Veda Soothing Hydrating Toner
This is another product I received in my Latest In Beauty subscription box. I haven’t heard of this brand before, I would like to know what other products they do. It contains 14 botanical ingredients to help balance the skin. I would repurchase this toner.
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
I have probably repurchased this product around 10 times now! I use this to remove my eye makeup, and the lotion to remove my face makeup- this is a routine I have been doing for a long time now. I would like to try a different micellar water, but I worry none will be as good.
Frizz Ease 3 Straight
This is the heat protection spray I use all the time! I just love John Frieda hair products, especially the Frizz Ease collection. Even though it is quite a small bottle, it does last quite a while. This is my favourite styling spray to use when I straighten my hair. It keeps my hair mostly straight, even when it has been raining a little bit.
Frizz Ease Flawlessly Straight Shampoo
I did have the conditioner as well, but I always end up finishing the conditioner before the shampoo! On the bottle, it recommends using all the Frizz Ease products together to get the best results. I really like the smell of these products. The shampoo lathers up well and cleanses my hair nicely. I have repurchased these products many times.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moisture Conditioner
This is my go to deep treatment conditioner. It is recommended you leave the conditioner on your hair for 3 minutes, but I like to leave it on a little longer for extra nourishment. My hair always feels so soft after using this! I would definitely repurchase this.
