Empties | Products I Used Up #2

Hey everyone!

I hope you all had a great New Year's Eve and that 2013 is a good year for you!

Now a lot of people have been writing New Years resolutions and beauty resolutions posts but I'm unsure whether or not to write them so I've decided to write my second empties posts for you today!
I have been collecting these for a long time and decided to write this now before it became as long as my collective haul!

First are 5 packs of Sainsbury's Cottons Wool Pads
These each are a pack of approximately 100 cotton wool pads.
I use these to remove my eye makeup, cleanser and apply my toner.
They're soft, work great and I don't think there's anything else I can say about them!

Next is a bottle of the Barry M Nail Paint - 66 White
Now this had gone gloopy, hard to use and wasn't completely empty but I managed to drop all my nail polish, luckily this was the only one that broke.
Great nail polish, can take a while to make opaque unlike some other Barry M Nail Paints.

Next is the Maybelline the One-by-One Volum'Express Mascara
Great mascara, lengthens, gives volume, lasts almost all day on the eyes, tube lasts ages and I definitely recommend it!

I've got through 2 bottles of the Carex Moisture Plus Hand Wash
I use this as my usual hand soap and to clean my makeup brushes.
Leaves brush bristles soft and clean and my hands very soft!

Next is a bottle of the Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner
I've been using these for a while now and I really like them!
Leaves hair very soft and smooth.
Definitely recommend it:)

Next are 3 bottles of the Simple Kind to Eyes Eye Makeup Remover
Great for sensitive eyes, removes eye makeup really well and doesn't sting!
The only problem is that it's not a product that you can use a small amount of to remove all your eye makeup!

Next is a bottle of the Sure Women Bright Deodorant
It works, smells nice and lasts a long time! Not much else I can say!:)

Next is a bottle of the Aussie Dual Personality Heat Protection and for Straightening Leave-in Spray
Great product, protects hair from the heat of hair dryers and hair stylers and helps to leave your hair straighter after blow-drying.

Next is a bottle of the, The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel
Lasts for ages, smells amazing and lathers really well!
Definitely will repurchase after my current shower gels are finished!

I finished my 30ml bottle of the J-Lo Glow After Dark Perfume

I did lose this after I finished it so I don't have a picture so I got one online!
Smells gorgeous, lasts for ages on the skin and the bottle lasted for about 7months!
May repurchase again:)

Next is a tube of the Colgate Sensitive Whitening Toothpaste
I'm not sure whether its whitening my teeth but its helping my sensitive teeth out a little but not as much as I would like.
None the less, I still repurchased it!

Next is a tube of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer - 51
Great coverage, lasts all day with powder on top, great for blemishes and under the eyes and it smells really fruity too.
I have repurchased and I will continue too until I find anything or until I can afford anything better.

I also finished my compact of the e.l.f. Translucent Matifying Powder
Great powder, sets foundation well, looks natural and lasts all day:)

Next is a 45g tub of the LUSH Ultrabland Facial Cleanser
Reduced the redness on my skin, amazing cleanser, pot lasted about 5-6months and I have repurchased the 100g pot.
I recommend this to everyone:)

I finished two moisturisers:)
The first is the Boots Vitamin E Moisture Lotion SPF 15
Works great under makeup, moisturises well and smells really nice!
Not the best for under makeup I don't think so I will be trying out a few more, possibly a more expensive product.

The other was the Simple Spotless Skin Anti-Blemish Moisturiser
I use this at night after cleansing and toning my skin.
It feels amazing on the skin and does wonders for the amount of blemishes you may get. It doesn't heal them but it reduces the amount you get.

Next is a bottle of the Dove Go Fresh Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena Deodorant
Again, smells really nice, works well and lasts all day!

Next is the Baylis and Harding Skin Spa White Mulberry & Marshmallow Steam Shower Body Cleanser
I finished this quite a long time ago now but I really liked it. Like everything else I've mentioned, it smells gorgeous and works really well and this lasted a surprisingly long time!
I would repurchase this but I think this scent has been discontinued now from Baylis & Harding.

I also finished the Morgan Fresh Sweetpea So Fresh, So Bubbly... Shower Gel
This really didn't last a very long time! It doesn't lather up very well so you need quite a lot of product so definitely the opposite of 'a little goes a long way'!
It didn't have a very strong scent which is what I like in a shower gel but it was still nice to use and try out.

Next is a 50ml bottle of the Ted Baker Origami Body Spray
This really smells amazing! Great to just throw in your bag to use throughout the day and I have another 50ml bottle to use too:)

Second to last is the Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz 100% Organic
I wasn't a fan of the scent at first but now I quite like it! The bottle lasts for ages and I love how you can apply it two different ways and you can use it throughout the day as a little 'pick me up' aswell as a toner after cleansing.

Lastly, I finished a packet of the Primark Cotton Pads
I purchased these because the Sainbury's ones were becoming too expensive.
These are also really soft and amazing quality for £1 for 160 cotton pads.

So that's it, thanks for reading and I hope you all have an amazing 2013!
Have you tried any of these products? What have you finished recently?


  1. I wish i could use simple products but my skin reacts into red blotches (weird considering the point of the brand). Ultrabland and the bodyshop Pink grapefruit anything are two of my favourite things :)
