Empties Mid 2017

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I was inspired by the "empties" reviews that I have seen on other blogs to look back on the beauty, make-up, and skin-care items that have been finished up and to decide if I would like to re-purchase any of those items. Sometimes it does take awhile before a product is used up because a little bit can go a long way, but I was able to use up the following products.


Read below to see my thoughts about the items and to see if I would re-purchase them.


S5 Balance Fluid: This anti-aging moisturiser does not feel greasy on the skin and promises to re-balance the skin. Would I buy it again? No, although it did absorb into the skin, I do not tend to use skin moisturiser.

Embroylisse creme concentrate: This product is absorbed into the skin to aid in hydration and is not greasy or heavy. Would I buy it again? No; the product just isn't for me.

Lollipops lip balm: This lip balm contains sunscreen and is rich in vitamins to help nourish lips. The scent reminds me of vanilla cupcake. Would I buy it again? Yes, if I did not have a lot of similar products to use up. I enjoyed the scent, and it left my lips feeling soft.

Mascara: This mascara comes in a cute flowery tube. The product helps to lengthen lashes. Would I buy it again? No. I found that the product caked on the lashes and dried out because of the design of the tube; too much product was brought out and came off on the container when attempting to put the wand back in.

amika mask: This hair mask hydrates hair and made my hair feel ultra-soft. The product has a pleasant smell, which lingered after rinsing it out. Would I buy it again? Yes, as I enjoyed using it and thought it better than some of the similar products that I have previously purchased.

Aurelia refine and polish miracle balm: This balm uses bio-organic ingredients to prevent anti-aging, and it is moisturising and removed dead/tired skin. Would I buy it again? No. It's just not a product that I would use.

Aurelia refine and polish miracle balm: This balm uses bio-organic ingredients to prevent anti-aging, and it is moisturising and promises to remove dead/tired skin. Would I buy it again? No, there are other similar products that I prefer.

Nail polish - off-brand, L'oreal, Ciate, Mien: I have hoarded a lot of nail polish, and a couple of these I have had for years. Would I buy it again? I would buy Ciate again, but the other brands did not last long. Mien was a Marks and Spencers brand, and I did find it hard-wearing.

Balmi lip balm: This cute square glossy-red container is filled with lip balm. The balm moisturised lips and had a faint taste of strawberry. Would I buy it again? Yes, if I did not have many similar products to use.

ESPA Overnight Hydration Therapy: This mask promotes skin-care and anti-aging formulas and helps maintain a hydrated, youthful appearance. Would I buy it again? No, I did not see the benefits to using this product.

Trilogy Rosehip Oil: This product rehydrates dry skin and is perfect for the winter months when skin needs a little TLC. Would I buy it again? Yes, it did appear to help with skin hydration.

Philip Kingsley PK Prep Polishing Balm: This hair serum conditions and smoothes hair, and it has a fantastic smell. Would I buy it again? No. I just did not see the benefits to using it and tend to condition hair in the shower.


Bath and Body Works eau de toilette in 'blushing cherry blossom': This is a strong cherry blossom fragrance perfect for spring. Would I buy it again? No. Although I enjoyed it in the shop, I liked it less when I used it.

Lip Butter by Jelly Pong Pong: This is a nourishing bright pink-purple shade of lipstick that can produce a subtle colour or a heavier one. Would I buy it again? No. I love the cute packaging, but I did not care for the colour of this particular lip butter.

deep sleep pillow spray: Lavender-scented spray helps aid in relaxation. The spray is put onto linen, but I did not find that it lasted long. Would I buy it again? No. I just did not find it worked for me.

Korres Milke Proteins 3-in-1 cleansing emulsion: This product promises to remove make-up with milk proteins and without irritating skin. It is perfect for people who struggle with harsh chemicals in other cleansing products. Would I buy it again? No, because I use other cleansers.

John Freida Volume Blow Dry: This product promises to add volume to the hair blow-dried. It is a thicker hair spray formula. Would I buy it again? Yes, as I found the product to hold style for longer.

Percy & Reed Firm Session Hold Hairspray: This is a strong and humidity-resistant hairspray from a brand that I've used before. Would I buy it again? Yes, I do like the brand, and the product semeed to hold.

Anatomicals Spray Misty for Me Facial Spritz: This is the ideal product to travel with and to use after a long plane flight as traveling on a plane dehydrates the skin. The spritz has a slight fruity fragrance, and I found it did wake me up when I used it. Would I buy it again? Yes, I would buy it and use it as a travel product, but it did make my face feel slightly sweaty, and I wouldn't use it after applying make-up.

NUXE Crème Fraîche® beauty mask: This 24-hour moisturising mask has a honeysuckle smell, and it brought back childhood memories of summery June evenings. The product melted into skin within several minutes, but it did feel slightly thick. Would I buy it again? Yes, if I wanted a beauty moisturiser, but most of this is based on the smell of the product.
