Product Empties | July 2017

I haven’t done a product empties post in so long but i was on a spending ban for a few weeks, to try and get through some of my products. There is something so satisfying about finishing products and de-cluttering.

Simple Micellar Water

Simple is one of my holy grail skincare brands, it’s just a brand i can never go wrong with. I’ve never really threw myself into micellar water but i thought if i was going to give one a go, it would be simple. I mean, i just do not get it. I’m not converted to micellar water, i mean it was alright but it didn’t blow me away.

Botanics All Bright Eye Make-Up Remover

Another of my favourite ever skincare brands. I think Botanics at Boots is so inexpensive but it’s a great skincare brand and i would definitely recommend it. This is a great oily make up remover which is gentle on the skin but effectively removes stubborn make up. I think this is a great alternative to the Body Shop cleansing oil which is over double the price!IMG_4209

Zoella Beauty “Scooper Duper” Bubble Bath

This is part of the new releases to the original collection, which is still my favourite scent.  I love that this comes in a tub because you get the full product without having to wrestle with a bottle. It makes really good bubbles and smells of the original fragrance which is so fresh and clean, i cannot get enough.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray 

I’d heard so much hype about this product, i bought it despite not needing it. I really didn’t get on well with this product, for the price. It had a horrible scent for a start, i didn’t think it kept my make-up on any better than my usual setting spray. Definitely not worth the hype!


Lush Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask

Lush fresh face-masks are my all time favourite. This is great for maintaining good skin and avoiding breakouts or bad skin. I normally get about six uses out of this so it works out at just over £1 a mask- i will absolutely repurchase!


Avon Setting Spray

The first setting spray i’ve ever used and honestly, it’s probably my favourite. It does everything i look for and it’s a big bottle. When i finish the one i’m using now, i’m absolutely going back to this!



Zoella Let’s Spritz Body Mist

This is from the tutti-fruity range, the fragrance fruity without being too sweet. I loathe sweet fragrances, i always find them too sickly but this is perfect. The fragrance doesn’t last for as long as i’d like but for the price, i cannot complain!


Rimmer Fix & Perfect Primer

Similar to the matching foundation, this is such a reliable product. If i’m having a bad day or i’m not getting on with other products i know i can always pick this up. I get on so well with it, it works so well and is just such a reliable product.

So that is my product empties this month! I’m going to try and do a spending ban bi-monthly to try and use up products, it’s very satisfying!
