October Empties – hair, skin, body products

Another month, another round of empties. I’ve been making a concerted effort to finish products, especially some of my many sample sachets that I’ve been hoarding for years. 13 different products isn’t a bad effort in my book. They were mostly skin and body care products, with a few haircare products, and one makeup item rounding out the group. The brands featured include Paula’s Choice, Neutrogena, Maybelline, Lush, and Vaseline. Let’s crack into it!

June and July empties

It’s the start of a new month, which means it’s empties time! I completely forgot to write one for June, which means we have a bumper crop of used up products. There are 4 skincare, 3 body products, 6 makeup, and 2 haircare, most of them are even full size. Products are from brands such as Clinique, Batiste, Lush, Bare Minerals, Bourjois and much much more. Keep reading for my reviews on all of these products. Some of these products were sent to me from brands and PR companies, and those have been marked with an asterix – however my opinion is always honest.

October Empties – hair, skin, and nails

This month my empties box actually OVERFLOWED! So, I’ve actually split this post into two – today is skincare, hair, and nail products and later in the week we’ll get to makeup. Some of the things in this post aren’t empties in the true sense of the word, but they are products I’m throwing away, so they count.

Overnight essentials

Being a single 24 year old who loves a good night out, I sometimes find myself unexpectedly staying the night somewhere, and so I need to have some essentials with me for those nights. If I’m going to be sleeping on a couch or something, the least I need is a well stocked handbag. I generally carry around a lot of beauty products anyway, so some of them aren’t additional, but I’m going to list them all because they come in handy so often.

February Empties

So many empties this month! I’ve really been trying to use up what I have, I haven’t bought any beauty products since coming back from Australia in January, which must be a record for me. February’s empties include body, skincare, hair, and nail related products, from brands including The Body Shop, Sally Hansen, Dove and Lush. Let’s get into it, I have mini-reviews for all of these products

Empty Beauty Products

It’s been a while since I’ve done an empties post! I have been trying a few different things skincare-wise lately, so I haven’t been getting through things as quickly as I normally might. Today I’ll be going through the beauty products I’ve finished during November, December and January, which are products from Batiste, Trilogy, Stridex, Comvita and Vaseline – let’s get started!  

Work beauty supplies

I spend around 40 hours a week sitting at my office desk, and for someone as beauty obsessed as me, that means that I need to keep some supplies with me. Of course I have a fair bit of things in my hand bag – lipsticks, hand cream, hair brush etc, but I like to have them at my desk as well. The people I work with find it a bit amusing but they have benefited from it from time to time. I’ll be showing and explaining what they all are, and why I think they are essential. Your needs and situation may vary of course, so let me know in the comments section what you have at your work. Top left: Deodorant – pretty self explanatory why this might come in handy. Next is Batiste dry shampoo which is an incredible invention, and it’s useful if I get to work and realise my hair is a little bit greasy. it has a pleasant cherry smell which is a nice bonus, and doesn’t leave any white residue. Then there are some eye drops for if my eyes get dry from staring at the screen all day. The hair brush is for […]
