Empties / Products I have used up

Last week, I decided it was time to clean out my cupboard and dresser, which ended up being quite a mission and I was busy for sometime. I came across a bunch of empty products that I have used up over November and December and thought I would share them with you.

1. Lips

The Body Shop - Born Lippy

I am absolutely obsessed with this lip balm. I'm really hoping I can get my hands on another one of these soon. I wrote a full review in a previous blog post here

Essence - In The Nude (52)

When it comes to lipsticks, I am definitely a Nude girl and this must be one of my favourites. It's a glossy beige-pink shade. It's lasting effect isn't quite what I would have wanted, but never the less, I still love it. 

 2. Face

L'oreal - True Match Foundation

I found myself reaching for this a lot on "no makeup",  makeup days. It's a light to medium weight foundation with quite a watery consistency and didn't leave me shiny throughout the day. 

Being pale, it's hard to find a foundation that doesn't make me look like a ghost or like a Oompa Loompa. I was very impressed, as it matched my skin tone perfectly. I have subsequently repurchased this a few more times.
You can find a full review here.

L'Oreal - Visible Lift (146 Nude Beige)

Probably my least favourite foundation that I have recently tried. I found it quite dry and this shade was a bit too dark for me and I did try a lighter shade in store, but that was too light.

Yardley - Stayfast Pressed Powder 

I love a pressed powder, especially in summer. I find this one sets my foundation or BB cream quite well and doesn't leave me cakey at all. I was so sad actually, when I hit the pan.

3. Eyes 

Essence - Get Big Lashes

Essence must be my favourite budget brand. This mascara has a straight wand, which makes it easy to apply and it lasts long. It does clump a bit though, but for the price, it's still a fantastic mascara. 


Vaseline - Total Moisture Aloe Fresh Body Butter 

This is a firm favourite of mine. Not only does it smell amazing, but it leaves my skin feeling light and moisturised. 

Dove - Go Fresh Underarm

In the past I really struggled to find an underarm that smells good, doesn't leave white marks and is suitable for all occasions. Finally, I think I have found something that is pretty close to being perfect.

It leaves minimal white marks, smells good and keeps me feeling fresh all day. I have always been a fan of Dove products and this has impressed me even more ....

Good Stuff - Hygiene Her (Lime and Tea Tree)

I can never leave the house without a hand sanitizer or moisturiser in my handbag and this product is both of those in one.  I just love the size of the bottle and one squirt is more that enough to leave my hands feeling clean and hydrated. 

Lots of Love
