Empties No.7 - Beauty Edition

I've recently finished some of my absolute favourite skincare products. Most of these were instant repurchases while others I remained completely indifferent to.

Ren ClearCalm3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser

This is a life saver. It is my favourite cleanser that I use morning and night religiously. Sometimes even more frequently if I need a refresher after a gym session. Needless to say, this was an inevitable repurchase and I highly recommend it to anyone.

St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse

This is my go-to self-tanner and, especially due to its affordability, I haven't used any others in a long time (although I'm open to suggestions, ladies!). I recently repurchased this in medium, and took a risk with the dark one!

Bodhi Bath and Shower Therapies

I got these Bodhi products as part of a mixed set. They're absolutely beautiful products but its unlikely that I'd purchase due to their priciness, not to mention my overflowing shower product stash in my bathroom cabinet!

Keraste Elixir Ultime Masque

I received these samples in a goody bag at a fashion show. I was super impressed with the product and I would genuinely consider buying the full size product if my hair was even in need of some extra TLC.

Naked Blinking Lovely Eye Makeup Remover

This eye makeup remover is a god send. I never like to spend a fortune on a product whose sole purpose is to remove mascara, but nearly every other drugstore product that I have tried has made my eyes sting like crazy. This is so gentle and I love that it's full of natural ingredients so I immediately ordered 3 more bottles!

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Does anyone ever find their perfect mascara? I never find much difference between brands and products so this is my go-to. I have the regular version here, as well as the 'BIG' version that I picked up on my last trip to the States, which has a lovely chunky brush.

Garnier InvisiCalm Anti-Perspirant

I only used this deodorant because my mum bought it and didn't like the scent. I found that it was okay but I'm not keen on scented antiperspirants, I find them a bit distracting! It did a good job, but I wouldn't repurchase. Back to my Simple favourite.

Om She Body Wash

I couldn't resist grabbing this in TK Maxx because I love rose, and I love lychee. But, the scent really wasn't all that. And the body wash was pretty standard too. Not bad, but I probably wouldn't repurchase.


Origins Eye Doctor 

Another instant repurchase. While I admit that I haven't been super-experimental on the eye cream front, it's only because I don't think that this eye cream could be rivalled. Amazing.

Vichy Lift Activ Eye and Lash Serum

Needless to say, this eye product was no match for Orgins Eye Doctor. Although it's only a sample size, it lasted for a really long time as a little went a long way due to its super light texture. However, it wasn't anything special and didn't seem to make any difference to my lashes.

Organic Surge Hand Wash

This is such a beautiful hand wash. I like to use hand washes without SLS so that my hands stay silky soft, and this one is a pretty reasonable price, not to mention gorgeously scented.

Purity Conditioning Cleansing Lotion

I'd had this product in my bathroom cabinet for a really long time but despite having only recently started reusing it, I was a bit upset when it ran out. It has an amazing milky texture and is perfect for a 'first cleanse' to remove makeup. I would have repurchased already if I had have found it in stores but, as it's not an essential product for me at the moment, I haven't got around to buying online. That's not to say that I won't though!

Sanctuary Salt Scrub

To me, this is still the ultimate body scrub. Lovely packaging and a high quality product, it's a winner and an instant repurchase.
