Empties #9

It's been an age since I did an Empties and my beauty trash has grown considerable. The majority of these products I have been trying to use up for the past few months, and I am so glad to see them empty.

Sephora Avocado Face Mask
When my cousin was in Dubai, I asked her to pick me up two avocado face masks from Sephora. I used this the night before school began and I really enjoyed it, the only thing was it didn't smell like avocados. My skin felt really soft and rejuvenated afterwards. If you are going to try one of these masks out don't remove the pink part completely before you apply it to your face as if you do it sticks together and is really hard to pull apart, from personal experience. The only downside is that Sephora's own brand test on animals which sucks so, I won't be repurchasing this product unless Sephora charge their ways.

Sanctuary Spa Cleanse Polishing Hot Cloth Cleanser
After everyone went nuts for the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser, I became intrigued about getting it but the price point kinda scared me especially when I had never tried a hot cloth cleanser before and I went for this one. I enjoyed using this, I used this every morning and night to cleanse my skin and it never dried out my skin. The only thing that I didn't like about it was the smell as it was pungent. I have found another cleanser, Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser that is half the price, works as well and has a nice smell. I would repurchase this again if I couldn't get my hands on the Superdrug one.

Boots Tea Tree & Hazel Exfoliating Face Scrub
I finally got this out of my collection, I really feel that I should get an award for it. I used to use this back in the day and I thought it was great for my skin but when using it up I have come to realise how awful it is. Firstly, there is plastic micro-beads which is a huge no no, not just for the environment but also they aren't the best for your skin. When I used it, I noticed it stung my face and that's not ideal. I won't be ever repurchasing this as it was all in all bad.

Botanics All Bright Cleansing Toner
This is the second or even third bottle of this toner that I have gone through and I think it will be my last. I was having a look at the product list and noticed that the second highest ingredient was alcohol and that bothers me a little as alcohol isn't supposed to be great for your skin, can cause breakouts and dryness. It is a nice toner don't get me wrong but I feel that I could find something my skin might prefer.

Coco Loco Coconut Oil
I bought this as it as on offer and it did everything that a normal tub of coconut oil would do. I use it as a makeup remover sometimes but mostly I use it as a night moisturiser and as a shaving cream. It works amazing for all three things and leaves my skin feeling soft after shaving. It was also less than the €5 mark as in some places it can cost nearly €20 for the same amount.

Oriflame Discover Parisian Delight Body Scrub
I finally got this out of my collection after having it for 2 years. It wasn't a bad body scrub but the scent was very artificial and there were those plastic microbeads. I used this to exfoliate my legs and it did the job but I will definitely not be repurchasing this again.

Primark Eyelash Curler
I bought this at least 4 years ago and this product stemmed my hatred for eyelash curlers that I only get over this year. This curler never curled my eyelashes instead it pulled them out and I didn't like that form of torture, so I left to the back of my collection for years. I know Primark has a new eyelash curler that everyone is grabbing and I will probably try it out at some stage to but for this one it is going in the trash.

Catrice Camouflage Concealer in 010 Porcellain
This is my new holy grail concealer, I bought this tube back in April and I have been loving it ever since. It isn't a high coverage concealer but it is definitely medium. Unfortunately for any of my tanned friends the shade range is terrible as there are only 3. I used this as an under eye concealer and to cover up any pesky spots that may be lurking on my face. I already have another one on the go and with a great price point of less than €5 I don't see why I shouldn't get it.

Have you got any empties yet?

Thanks for being awesome,
