Empties

I feel like this post doesn't need any introduction so I'm just going to jump right in. 

Eau Thermale Avene Hydrance Optimale UV Rich (£14.50) - I think we all know how I feel about this product by now. I was so glad to be done with this moisturiser; if you can call it that. It wasn't at all hydrating and didn't work under make-up either. Big, fat fail. Safe to say I wouldn't recommend, nor would I repurchase.

Marc Jacobs Lola EDP  (£49) - This one is a bit of a love/hate product. When I first bought it way back when, I loved it. Fast forward a good few months and I really dislike it. When compared to the other Marc Jacobs scents, this is just a little bit granny-ish. Writing this now, I really can't remember what I liked about it in the first place which is such a shame. As you can imagine, I'm glad it's done with, and it actually appears that it's being discontinued sparing you guys from the scent.

Pixi Glow Tonic (£18) - Gosh, I feel like it's a bit doom and gloom on here right now because this is another product I didn't like. This has something of a cult following and is a favourite of the Hirons, but it did absolutely diddly squat for me. Skincare takes time to work so I duly went about finishing the bottle, but still nothing. I've recently moved on to the Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion and I regret not switching sooner. 

Skinesis Ultimate Cleanse (£40) - This is the priciest cleanser I've ever used and I hate to admit that it was worth every penny. I'll get the one thing I disliked out of the way first, and that was the scent. If you like Vicks Vapo-Rub then crack on, but for me it was way too strong. Scent aside, this cleanser is brilliant. It provides a thorough clean without any stripping whatsoever. In terms of cleansing balms, this might be my favourite out of all the ones I've tried. Product aside, I love how functional the packaging is. The cleanser is packed with all these incredible ingredients, and they're dispensed via a pump. This will keep those goodies preserved for longer. Tubs are all good and well, but sticking your fingers in and leaving it open can't be good for hygiene/ effectiveness. It really goes without saying that I would recommend this and possibly repurchase. My only issue is the price, yes it lasts a while but it's £40 and goes down the drain literally. 

Nivea Double Effect Eye Make-up Remover (£3.89)  - This has become something of a staple in my routine. I believe this was my third or fourth bottle, so it's safe to say I like this product a lot. That being said, I've actually moved on from this. I've actually been using Johnson's Baby Oil and it works a treat. It's so much cheaper and does exactly the same job, so it's safe to say I won't be repurchasing. 


Garnier Hand Repair Intense (£3.99) - If you have really dry, cracked hands, you need this. It's quite thick, so application requires a bit more effort, but it works so well. The only downside for me was that I thought I used more product, so the tube didn't last as long. With that in mind, I've actually gone back to the Garnier 7 Days Shea Hand Cream (£3.29) instead. It delivers the same results without needing tonnes of product. In general, you can't go wrong with any of the Garnier Hand Creams, they're all great. 

Eau Thermale Avene Cleanance Expert (£15) - This was just a sample size, but I actually quite enjoyed it. I didn't get to thoroughly road test it as you can imagine, but it didn't break me out so that's something. 

Essie Neo Whimsical - Perhaps my all time favourite Essie shade. It also happens to be discontinued, so it goes without saying that it's a very sad day today. I've been hunting for a dupe for what feels like forever and nothing quite matches. They're either too pink or too purple, so if you know of one please let me know down below. I would be forever grateful. 

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (Vanilla - £22.50) - I finally finished it, hurray! I've been working away at this concealer for ages, but it's finally all gone. While I had it, I really enjoyed using this concealer. It covered what I needed it to and was a joy to apply. In a lot of ways it was the perfect concealer. As you could probably guess, I won't be repurchasing this one just yet. I liked it but I didn't love it, so I want to take the opportunity to find something I love now. If you've any recommendations for me, leave me them down below. I'm currently eyeing the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer, any thoughts?


And that's it, time to take out the trash. Have a great Saturday guys!
