January and February 2017 empties

It’s time for another empties post! I didn’t use many products up during January so decided to make it a combined affair with February. Then everything seemed to run out all at once! I’ve been really trying to finish one product before opening another but we all know how hard that is. I have finished skin, hair, body, makeup, and nail items, so at least one from each of the main categories that I blog about. Some are even full size! Now, without further ado, let’s get stuck in. I’ll be linking in the titles to where I have reviewed the products previously.

Weleda almond body wash, clinique pep-start eye cream, neutrogena senstive skin sunscreen, dr bronners soap, tony moly lip mask, innisfree trouble care mask, fuss free naturals face wipes

February Empties

It’s that time again – empties time! As usual, I’ve collected all of the beauty products that I’ve finished during the month and will be reviewing them all. I finished (or decided to throw out) 7 products and this time they were all skincare. My empties are from Weleda, Fuss Free Naturals, Neutrogena, Dr Bronner’s, Clinique, Innisfree and Tony Moly – keep reading for my reviews.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mask - Lena Talks Beauty

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mask

Sheet masks have long been popular in Asian skincare, but they’ve now made their way into Western skincare brands which I am very excited about. What is a sheet mask? A sheet mask is a thin sheet of cotton which is soaked in a liquid toner, serum, or essence. They have a variety of different purposes, but the type I like to use the most are moisturising. The new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mask* fits into that category, as it uses Hyaluronic Acid which adds a lot of moisture to the skin.

April empties part one

The beauty of being on a no-buy is that I’ve been using up lots of products! I’ve been making a concerted effort to finish as many things as possible, and it’s been working well. During April I finished two full size products, a deluxe sample, as well as a few samples, which I was very impressed by. Especially the fact I finished a lipstick – that has NEVER happened to me before! Here’s what I finished, and I’m going to be splitting this post into two, since otherwise it’d be ridiculously long. I’ll link the second post once it’s up, later in the week.
