Empties Part One


empties one

There is nothing more satisfying than using up a whole product! I am definitely a person who loves to get their money's worth so I use every drop of any product I buy. It also frees up space for new products to take it's place to try out!

empties two

Sweet Sugared Almond body wash from Treaclemoon Jar I have hunted high and low for the exact product to link for you but I cannot find it anywhere apart from the Sugared Almond Tart bodywash. So it is either the same thing or the one I have was limited edition. Either way, oh my goodness this stuff smelt amazing! I bought it at Tesco around Christmas and it has been such a pleasure to use. The smell of almonds is so strong and lingers on the skin. I really hope the Sugared Almond Tart is similar or they bring it out again around Christmas time because I will definitely be repurchasing!

The Body Shop Ginger Anti Dandruff Shampoo this is a topic that no one seems to like to talk about but I'll hold my hands up and say 'I suffer with dandruff' and I have done so my whole life. I have been on the hunt for the best anti dandruff shampoo for years and sadly this one isn't it. While the ginger makes it smell so fresh it just couldn't clear up my dry scalp. I wouldn't say it is the worst I've tried it just isn't the best. It does stop your scalp from feeling crazy itchy but it doesn't clear it up. So it's back to the drawing board to find the right one for me.

empties three

Sanctuary 5min Thermal Detox Mask this was a fun product to use. When you apply the mask on your face you can feel it heat up which apparently draws out impurities from deep within the skin. I didn't really notice a huge change to my skin but it didn't break me out so I count that as a win. I really liked how when it dried it really showed up your blackheads which made it appear like it was doing something amazing to them- sadly it didn't remove them completely but I did notice they were reduced. I would happily buy this again.

No7 Beautifully Matte Mousse Foundation I had never heard of this foundation before. How I stabled upon it was when I was in desperate need to find a foundation that had no SPF thus not making me look a ghost in any photos. To my surprise this foundation is actually really good! It is matte but not caky. Has good coverage but can be blended out to look really natural. It also has a lovely mousse texture which is really light on the skin. Overall I was so impressed by this that I would say that it is one of my favourite foundations I have tried. I never re-purchase a foundation as I love to try new ones all the time but it's really up there in terms of my personal ratings!

  2. Oh sorry to hear that Ginger shampoo didn't work for you - I was hoping that would be a good option! I also struggled with dandruff years ago but I'm on top of it now!
