Empties #1


I have been gathering and hoarding my empty bottles of used products since December for an empties post, don’t know why i find it so hard to use up something. Maybe because i have millions of potions and lotions constantly on the go?!

From Left to Right here is my low down of used bits:

Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream (travel size) – got this as part of one of their ‘free gift with purchase’ promotions, nourishes and moisturizers the hands and nails without leaving greasy residues behind. Already a cult Clarins product, its very handy to keep it in your bag for an on the go touch up. Despite that im not a fan of the scent, i will repurchase it in the future.

Nivea Energy Fresh Roll On – the only anti-perspirant that didn’t leave white marks on my clothes, whilst being efficient. Already re-purchased the Pearl Beauty version.

Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache Scrub – the best body scrub i have ever tried! The scent is divine, filling the whole room with a delicious pistachio biscuit fragrance, while your skin becomes super smooth and soft. Need more of this in my life.

L’Oreal Ever Sleek Smoothing Conditioner – left my hair uber smooth and manageable, without weighting down or looking greasy. My fine hair seemed to be in great shape whenever Ive used it, no need for any added straightening. Ive combined it with their new Elnett Heat Protect Spray (the straight version) when blow drying and it always left my hair frizz free and soft. Definitely a keeper.

John Frieda Full Repair Deep Conditioner – obsessed with the scent of this range, smells just like Cacharel Amor Amor. Another winner for fine combination hair, hydrated without weighting down and tamed the frizz. Probably i will purchase again, particularly when on offer.

Vichy Liftactiv Retinol HA Night – ladies you must invest in this moisturizer! Its the only one that ive tried so far, trust me ive tried many, that gave me plumped, lifted and smooth skin in the morning. Even the fine lines/dehydration line were gone! The consistency is just beautiful, a mixture between cream and balm feels very luxurious when applied on the skin. As the name suggests it, has a form of Retinol inside that promotes a wrinkle free, young face by morning time without the nasty side effects of the pure stuff (dryness, redness, sensitivity). A high SPF must be worn during the day.

Lush The Olive Branch Shower Gel mini – an all time favorite, it makes me feel happy and pampered every time i use it.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum – the first time ive used it didn’t notice major improvements on my skin, so ive stop and tried again after a few weeks. The second time, my skin wasn’t in the best condition to start off so results started to appear. Its ideal for imperfection prone skin, seems to speed up recovery and aid the healing process. The texture felt a bit too rich for a serum and wasn’t too much keen on the scent, but overall would repurchase this in times of need. Very curious about the new eye serum out…

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Cleansing Oil – best cleansing oil that ive tried, come payday ill purchase the biggest bottle i can find.

Clarins Hydraquench Gel-Cream – because my skin has become quite dry during the winter months, kept this little pot to top up during the day for an extra boost of hydration. Of course used it in the makeup free days and after ive taken off my makeup after work. The first thing i do after work is to take off my makeup and let my skin breath.
