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.

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.

Nove Microfibre makeup removal cloth - Lena Talks Beauty

Nove Make Up Removal Cloth

I am an endlessly curious person, and I can’t resist buying novel products. Recently I was buying the Mindfulness Colouring Book from Mighty Ape, and had a poke around in their beauty section as well. I discovered the Nove Make Up Removal Cloth and since it was only $2.99 I decided to pop it in my cart. It’s a microfibre cloth which claimed to remove makeup with only water, no cleansers or other products. I was skeptical but I also was like ‘this would be good for the blog’. My Nove cloth arrived pretty quickly, and I put it to the test – and now I’m sharing the results of that test.

Za cleansing oil

Za Deep Cleansing Oil & Lasting Moisture gel

A little while ago I attended an event hosted by Za Cosmetics, and was given a great bag of their products. I’ve been working my way through the products, and today I’m going to be talking about the Za Deep Cleansing Oil and Lasting Moisture Gel. Both of these products are types of things I enjoy using – oil cleansers, and hyaluronic acid based moisturisers, so it was off to a good start already. Keep reading to find out what else I like about them!
