Empties | Part Three


I have done a fair few of these posts on my blog and they always go down really well. I have been very mindful of my new years resolution (amazing how it's June and I am still trying to achieve my yearly goals!) of using more and consuming less. I have been purchasing less beauty products this year and have been more focused on using up what I have more. It has made me realise how long products actually last and if I took the time out to use it all up that I actually get my monies worth. There is nothing worse than looking at a bottles use by date and seeing that it has expired but it's a barely touched product. I strongly recommend using a whole bottle up because the sense of satisfaction it truly amazing.

First up I have COLab Dry Shampoo Sheer and Invisible in Rio. To be honest my choice in dry shampoo is determined on whether it is on offer or not. While I thought this was nice it was nothing to write home about. It was sheer and invisible like it is described on the tin which is great because I have dark brown hair however I didn't think it really helped on days where my hair was seriously greasy.
This is my second bottle of The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil and I have since re-purchased. It really is amazing at removing all make up, including eye make up. It doesn't sting my eyes, leaves my skin soft and hydrated - it really is a product that will always be in my skin care routine.
Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy has been my every day perfume for almost a year now. I was kindly gifted this 50ml bottle for my birthday last year and it has taken me a full year to get through. It is a lovely sweet scent without it being overwhelming and can be worn for any occasion. I loved how I had this to fall on when I didn't know what fragrance to wear and I am happy that I still have a 30ml bottle of this to use up.

As you may be aware I don't use conditioner as I find that I need way more moisture to tame my frizzy dry hair. I saw Dove Advanced Hair Series Pure Care Oil Treatment was on offer about a few months back and decided to give it a go. The treatment is a funny honey colour and has a very subtle scent which I can't remember exactly what it smelt like but it didn't linger on the hair after washing. It aims to leave hair sublimely smooth and silky without weighing it down. Now I have no issues with any product weighing my hair down so I couldn't say whether it works for that or not but I have to admit that it didn't give me enough moisture to create 'smooth and silky hair'. In fact it worked just like a regular conditioner so if you have thick dry hair like me I would give this a miss.
On a more positive note the Clinique Take the Day Off make up remover is incredible. When I wear a kohl liner on my upper lash line this is the only thing that will remove it. I also love it for times when I make a mistake with my liquid eyeliner I just place some of this on the end of a cotton pad and I can literally gently glide it along the error and it would remove the mistake without having to push hard on the lid or rubbing so I never have to re-do my eyeshadow. It really is incredible! I have recently been gifted a full bottle of this for my birthday and I don't think I can truly live without it now.
Having a good base coat is key when it comes to having nail polish last the week and my favourite for years has been the Revlon Nail Care Quick Dry Base Coat. It does everything it claims to do, dries quick, keeps the polish sticking to your nails, protects against splitting, peeling, and yellowing. However I haven't repurchased as I want to see if there is anything else out there that can match this or even better it however if you don't want to take the risk and want a fool proof base polish this is the one!
