Product Empties: September

Hello beauties,

As promised, I gave you all a break from my product empties. But now we’re back with vengeance! I’ve saved up so many empties, that I’ve got so many back up empties for next month. My recommendation is, get a coffee or a wine and settle in for the long haul xx

Nivea Post Shave Balm

When Nikki Tutorials raved about this product as a primer I jumped on the bandwagon. Its good but not amazing for my skin type as for me my concerns are my pores and oily skin. Click here for a full review.

Klara Cosmetics Zero Pores Primer* 

If you like silicone primers than this is awesome. I don’t mind silicone primers so this was fine for me but not an all time favourite. Click here for a full review of the Klara Cosmetics brand.

Ultraceuticals Ultra Balancing Gel Cleanser*

You know how much I love this cleanser. Click here for a full review of the Ultra brand.

Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover

This eye makeup remover pops up a lot in my empties. This is my go to eye makeup remover! Love love love! I always repurchase when its on sale.

Kora Organic Hydrating Mask

I didn’t expect much from this but its my favourite hydrating face mask. I didn’t finish it up, but because its organic it has a short shelf life so I’ve decided to bin it. Click here for a detailed review.

Maskd The Green Mask*

This is a great all round face mask, draws out impurities and its exfoliating. It has quite a tingle to it but its worth it as you are left with beautiful skin. If you have sensitive skin, this might be too intense.

Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream

This is a beautiful, organic face cream. Love this moisturiser, its hydrating without making me oily. Definitely want to repurchase the full size in the future.

My Go-To Primers for All Skin Types

Hello beauties,

I’m a big primer advocate! I have oily skin so primer is essential, but personally I think all skin types can benefit from primer. With the below primers, I’ll tell you which ones are suited for a particular look or particular skin type.

Nivea Post Shave Balm

This is a great all-rounder primer suitable for all skin types. The Nivea Post Shave Balm works beautiful as a base for foundation, allowing your foundation to grip onto something, and also prolongs the wear of your makeup. The only thing that it doesn’t do is minimise pores, but that’s where the next primers come in. Click here for a full review of the Nivea Post Shave Balm.

Benefit Porefessional or Innoxa Skin Perfect Pore Vanishing Cream

Personally I find the Benefit Porefessional and the Innoxa Skin Perfect Pore Vanishing Cream do the same thing, they minimise pores amazingly well! I have oily skin and these two are my go to primers, as they keep the oils at bay, minimise pores and prolongs the wear of my foundation. These primers don’t work well under powder foundation. Here’s a detail comparisons of the two primers.
