empties: april 2015

So many products I manged to use up within a month! I can finally throw away the empty packaging and collect more for next month, hopefully there will be more make-up than skincare/body products, as I am trying to minimize my make-up collection. I just realised that this month there are a lot more drugstore products, better for the purse! This month I manged to use up:

DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum: The best lash treatment I've tried so far! Definitely on a repurchase list. Made my lashes look a lot more healthier, as well as the serum helps to hold the curl in my lash. Not sure how, but this product manged to turn mascaras into waterproof! You can read more about it here.
Hourglass Veil Primer*: Way to pricey for what it does, to be honest I don't understand how can people like the veil primer so much? I tried to like it, but I didn't see any different whenever I used it or didn't use it. Well it's really smooth on the skin, but this primer just didn't make my foundation last any longer. Guess it's just not for me.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer: One of my favourite concealers, will be picking up a third tube soon! The Concealer is very lightweight, great colour match and last pretty much all day.
DiorShow New Look Mascara: My all time favourite mascara, I really wish that Dior will come out with a waterproof version! Sadly I won't be able to use the mascara during summer as I will definitely have panda eyes. The little wand grabs the lashes so well, gives them lot of volume and length. I decided to keep the wand and try to use it with different mascaras formulas.
Maybelline Brow Pencil in Medium Brown: When you don't have the time to do you brows, the Maybelline Brow Pencil is just amazing! I would definitely compare it to the Anastasia Brow Wiz. Already bought a new one.
TRESemme Weightless Body & Volume Conditioner: Smells really nice, kept the moisture in my hair. Didn't really see much volume, but the conditioner was okay. Nothing special.
TRESemme Deep Conditioning Treatment: I really enjoyed to use the treatment in the shower, made my hair look less frizzy afterwards. Smelled really nicely too.
Essie Nail Polish in Mint Candy Apple: Ahh my summer shade, I love Mint Candy Apple on my toes during summer. Will definitely re-purchase. I am actually quite surprised that I manged to use up a nail polish.
La Roche Posay Effaclar Cleansing Gel: Whenever I have bad skin days, I always go back to the Effaclar. Effaclar always clears up my skin, I wouldn't recommend using it for too long as it does tend to dry out the skin.
This Works Clean Skin Moisture Scrub: Another okay, but not amazing product. Didn't like the scent at all. I liked the fact that it's a moisturisng scrub, so my skin didn't get dry.
Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask*: Such a great mask! I am so gutted that I no longer have it. Might make a sneaky Antipodes order soon. The mask have helped me to clear up my skin, without drying it out. Although I never been sold on the scent, I really liked how my skin looked the next day.
TRESemme Volumising Dry Shampoo: My all time favourite dry shampoo. You can read more about it here.
Vo5 Give Me Texture Spray: We all love having texture in our hair and volume, lets not forget about the volume. Not going to lie I tried better non sticky Texturising Sprays, this one just left my hair feeling sticky, almost like a hairspray.
Pantene Conditioning Spray: I really enjoyed using this before brushing my hair. Smells really nice, whenever I had dry frizzy hair this was my life saver. Will be looking for another spray, any recommendations?
Garnier Pure Active Daily Energizing Scrub: I enjoyed using this under the shower, but after a longer period of time, I've noticed that it started to dry out my skin. Smelled so good thought!
Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Cream: I am not sure what it is, but I just feel like none of the Origins creams are absorbed by my skin! Whenever I woken up I could still feel the cream on top of my face.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Facial Cream*: Kept my skin moisturised, but again nothing amazing.
John Frieda Go Blonder Conditioner:  I love the Go Blonder range by John Fredia. Will definietly re-purchase. I love having blonde hair, will soon do an update post on my current hair colour. You can read more about the Go Blonder duo here.
  1. Wow, so many empties, well done! I have a large sample of that Origins night cream, so I'll keep your comment in mind when I test it out - I have dry skin so hopefully it helps.

    1. The Rimmel concealer isn't over priced but it's so good, so is the Maybelline brow pencil x

  4. Such a shame about the Hourglass Primer, especially as it's so expensive!

    1. I really don't understand why bloggers hype it up, there are so many better cheaper primers. x

  5. Wow you really went through a lot of stuff! I tend to have a really hard time finishing products - not because I have too many, but because I use so many of them so sparingly because I do not want them to go to waste - but I had a go-through of my cabinets and realized I had to throw a lot away due to expiration dates, which is a waste of money so now I am using my products happily and liberally and boy does it feel kind of like an accomplishment to finish a bottle in a really weird way lol. Thanks for the reviews of the products, sorry to hear about the Hourglass Primer!
