Product Empties: April

Hello beauties,

Another month, another round of empties. This month’s a bit different as I started off by clearing out some old and unloved items from my beauty collection. Below is a stack of lip products that I’ve decided to throw away as I don’t use them. Not a negative, some are really good but I just don’t use them.


Wella SP Colour Save Conditioner

I’ve repurchased this conditioner multiple times, not because I think its amazing but because my hairdresser recommended it. Don’t think its anything special and will try something new.

Sephora Argan Hand Mask*

The packaging of the hand mask is amazing! No leakage and easy to use. I found that it did hydrate my hands but at the same time wasn’t anything special. Might try again before my wedding…

Estee Lauder DayWear BB Cream

One of the best BB Creams I’ve ever tried but its a tad light so its time to bin it. Really good coverage and lasts well on oily skin. I got my girlfriend hooked on it and she swears by it as her every day foundation.

Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Brush Head*

Really loved this brush head. Its super soft and perfect for sensitive skin types or if you’re starting out with your Clarisonic.

REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask 

I’ve had this for too long so its time to bin it. But from memory it was a nice face mask but nothing revolutionary… Probably needed to use it more often to see the full results.

L’Occitane Shower Gel

I really liked this shower gel. I might need to splurge and buy a full size.

MyChelle SunShield SPF Unscented

I love this sunscreen! Its a natural sunscreen with really good ingredients. Highly recommend.


Batiste Dry Shampoo

Great, affordable dry shampoo. Already have back ups.

No7 Beautifully Matte

I loved this primer with my Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation but its quite old now so I’ve decided to throw it. Now I need to find a new primer 😦

Hourglass Veil Primer

I don’t see the hype around this primer. Maybe I didn’t use enough… Any advice?

Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion

I was recommended this for my stubborn, big blemishes. Personally I didn’t find it as effective as the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion so its being binned.

Elements Eye Lift Hydro Gel*

At first I didn’t love this but I grew to love it over time. I love that is gels and has a cooling effect. Click here for a full review of the range.

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil

Such an expensive rosehip oil but honestly the best I’ve tried. My skin was amazing when I used this. But because its organic it needs to be thrown away after 6 months. I’ve probably had mine for 2 years so it was time to go. I probably won’t repurchase due to the short shelf life and will use the Go To Face Hero has it provides great results and you can keep it for 2 years.

Origins GinZing Eye Cream

One of my all time favourite eye creams but I haven’t used it in forever because I’ve been trying so many others. This is great for a morning eye cream as it has an illuminating effect.


Simply When Sheet Masks*

I liked this sheet masks, they were quite thin and not overly liquidy which I liked. The only down side was they were a bit small for my face, and personally I don’t think my face is that big. My skin felt nice and hydrated after using these sheet masks.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Wipes in Oil* 

These makeup wipes were effective but left me with an oily residue, probably the fact that it had oil in it… Because of the residue, I always felt the need to wash my face after. Not a negative, these were actually quite nice to use.

Skin Republic Hydrogel Under Eye Patch*

You all know I’ve been loving these! The are easy to use and leave the under eye area feeling hydrated and not puffy.

For Beloved One Hyaluronic Acid Mask*

Like not love. I need to use them more regularly to see the full effect, but they’re just so expensive!

    1. If you don’t use it bin it. We are so lucky to get to try so many products, that I feel I need to share the love. I try to give to my friends where possible and if its too old it gets binned.


  1. I love the Mineral Veil, so surprised it didn’t work for you, I only used really minimal so I wouldn’t say using more is the answer, funny how things work differently for people! Love the Iceberg Eye Gel too! X
