Products I've used up/Empties

I've been harvesting my empty products for a while now in the hope that I would eventually have enough to put in a blog post. And hurrah I made it! I seem to take ages to get through anything, especially make up. It was nice finally throwing away (and recycling!) all the packaging once I’d taken these pictures, but I will start collecting again so I can do another one of these posts.

So here are the products that I’ve worked my way through in the last month or so and my brief thoughts on them. I have actually made a youtube video of this too so you can go and watch that by clicking here if you want to. I know sometimes you just prefer reading a blog post though, so I wanted to do both. Let me know if you went and watched the video though!

So the key question...Would I repurchase?

1. Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara - No. The brush is too big and fat and the formula's not fab
2. Boots Simply Sensitive Cleansing Gel/Facewash - No, obviously just a cheapy but really hard to rinse off!
3. Origins Moisturising + - Really liked this sample so added to wishlist
4. Boots Time Delay Youth Maintain Eye Cream -  Blah. Nothing special, any other recommendations?
5. La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo - Holy grail product! And I don't give that title lightly.
6. MakeUp Forever Face&Body Foundation - Another absolute favourite. Light coverage, nice finish and mega staying power.
7. Rimmel Waterproof Eyeliner in Black - Yes, this has a permanent place in my makeup bag for some bottom lash line smudging.

8. Got2b Big Volume Hairspray - Yes, favourite hair spray
9. Dove Leave-in Conditioning Spray -  Yes, this is a nice little detangling/moisturising addition to ym haircare routine
10. Tresemme Platinum Strength Conditioner- Maybe, it was nice but there are lots of others to try
11. Soap and Glory Clean On Me Shower Gel - Yes, but not straight away. I love this but I like to chop and change
12. Toni&Guy Dry Shampoo - Yes, smells like boy (in a nice way) and comes out clear. I tend to buy this or the Umberto Gianinni one.

I want to try to make a concerted effort to use more things up. Although I have told myself this many times before and it never seems to happen. There’s always something new to try or an offer calling me to buy 3 for 2!

If you've tried any of these products or have suggestions for alternatives then I'd love to hear them :)
Also, if you'd like a fuller review on anything mentioned then let me know and I'll step to it.

  1. I love the Foamous shower gel from Soap & Glory. I really like the Nuxe eye cream or the one from La Roche Posay if you want to try something different :)
