Hi there, happy Friday! Today I’m very excited to bring you my first ever empties post! I will try and make this a regular feature on the blog but I don’t know how frequent the posts will be. I don’t find I go through products that quickly so I’ll probably end up keeping a little bin or a stash. Let’s jump straight in?!
1. Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser
I have used Simple moisturiser for years and I absolutely love it. My skin can be sensitive and never has this irritated it. The moisturiser does everything it says on the bottle and is so affordable. There is no artificial scent or colour and the light texture is perfect for the face because it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and is good to use as a base before applying foundation. I imagine this would also be good for other areas on the body with sensitive/dry skin.
Repurchase: Yes, in fact I already have.
2. Impulse Into Glamour Body Spray
I first bought this body spray after The Saturdays became brand ambassadors for Impulse and it was one of the new scents launched in conjunction. I have used this product for a number of years as well and always repurchase whenever I run out. The scent is feminine and slightly floral and features a blend of sandalwood and vanilla. They’ve recently changed the size of the cans and although there is less product, it is more handbag friendly.
3. The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Hand Cream
I purchased this hand cream in August and it lasted me about two months. I really do think it made my nails stronger, they weren’t weak but they seemed to look and feel more nourished. When I first started using this hand cream I found the scent rather sweet but after a few days I got used to it and grew to like it. I like to apply hand cream before I go to bed so it has plenty of time to soak in during the night.
Repurchase: I think I will go back to this scent but I have a few others I’d like to try first.
4. The Body Shop Shea Body Butter
I have been saving this empty up after finishing it a few months ago, partly because I thought the tub was cute and it might come in useful for something. I really like the shea scent because it’s feminine but relatively neutral and doesn’t interfere with perfume or anything like that. Some people question The Body Shop’s prices but I think once you work it out, they’re reasonable as the products last a good few months and the quality is so good.
Repurchase: Like the hand cream, I have a list of other scents I’d also like to try.
5. Rimmel ScandalEyes Lycra Flex Mascara
I’ve certainly saved the best till last! Technically this mascara isn’t an empty yet, but it’s pretty damn near. I didn’t realise how much I loved this mascara and what it does for my lashes until I tried others and didn’t like the effect as much. I think this may just be my ‘holy grail’ mascara, the volume and length it gives my lashes is amazing. This mascara really opens up my eyes and holds a decent curl throughout the day while still making my lashes look fluttery. This must be the easiest waterproof mascara to remove which is always a bonus.
There you have it, my first empties post done and dusted. All five of these products come highly recommended and I’d love to know if you’ve tried them yourself or if you’d like to!
