empties: july 2015

I manged to use up three foundations, I am so sad that my beloved MAC Studio Fix Fluid is gone, will definitely re-purchase asap! Currently I've been trying to use up the products, which have been in my collection for a while. I am trying to cut down on my make-up collection, I would like to have more storage space for other things. If you have any recommendation of night time oil, please let me know in the comments.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Toner: This was a nice toner, but nothing amazing to be honest. It haven't dried out my skin, it doesn't really have a scent, so the toner won't irritate your skin.
MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation: My favourite foundation of all time! The lasting power is just amazing, as well as I really like the semi-matte finish. The colour match is just perfect. Smells pretty much like paint, but I don't mind that. Will re-purchase on my next MAC visit.
This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up Primer: A great primer, I bought it before the hype and to be honest at first I wasn't amazed, but after a while, it's actually a great product. Keeps a protective barrier between the skin and the foundation. The packaging is amazing for people, who loves to use up their products right to the end.
Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub: Best smelling body scrub! As well as it's leaves your skin feeling really soft, I personally love it.
L'Oreal Nude Magique Foundation*: This foundation is amazing for hotter days, as it's very watery and smooth, as well as it's lightweight. You can read the full review here.
Phyto7 Hydrating Day Cream with 7 Plants: If you have frizzy hair this is amazing! It's very watery once you apply it on your hair, will leave your hair very smooth, as well as hydrated.
Rapid Lash Serum: I have mix feelings about this product. Your lashes will look fab once you use it, but once you will stop using the serum, your lashes will go back to the old state and that really sucks, not going to like the Rapid Lash Serum is expensive.
Nars Laguna Bronzer: Can't believe that I've manged to use up a bronzer! So proud of myself, this is my first bronzer and I still love it. Currently I have other bronzers to use, will go back to this one, after I will mange to use up the others one, wish me luck. You can read full review here.
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation: My love hate foundation, at first I was in love with this foundation, after a while I really started disliking it. I know that there is a new version, but for now I will stick to my favorite foundations. You can read my full review on it here.
L'Oreal Super Eye Liner: Manged to use up to eye liners. This is my all time favourite eye liner, I already bought another one. If you have any strong, true black eyeliners recommendation, feel free to let me know.
Bioderma Micellar Water: My favouirte Micellar water, although currently I am in love with the Garnier Micellar water, purely because it's cheaper, as well as it's available pretty much everywhere. You can read the full review here.
Sunday Riley Start All Over Eye Cream: Sunday Riley is quite famous at the moment. I really want to try out Luna, but it's so expensive! This Eye Cream was in one of Cult Beauty gift set or something like that. To be honest it's the worst eye cream I ever had a chance to use. My under eye area wasn't moisturised well enough. The metal thing was great to use in the morning, but the gel cream, wasn't moistursing enough.
Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Conditioner: This smells so good! I can't wait to re-purchase the Smoothing Argan Conditioner, my frizzy hair love it.
Ren Purity Cleansing Balm: I recently done a review on this, you can read about it here
ren no.1 purity cleansing balm

Recently I really got into using up skincare products, I manged to use up the Ren No.1 Purity Cleaning Balm, so I can give you a honest opinion on it. The tube have lasted me for around 3 months of every night use. After a full day at work, I just want to get rid of my make-up as fast as possible, without having to use 10 products. 

As my skin got slightly drier (normally I have oily to combination skin), I've decided to ditch gel cleansers and went for a cleansing balm. I am a big fan of the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm, but sadly it breaks me out. I thought that the Ren Cleansing Balm will be very similar to the Liz Earle cleanser, they are not similar in consistency. Purity Cleansing Balm is more thicker and oily. Once you rinse it off, it will turn into a milky consistency, you must use warm water if you want to get rid of the unpleasnt film, which will be left on your face. For me it wasn't a one step make-up remover. After using any cleanser, afterwards I always tend to use a Micellar water, just to make sure I got rid of all make-up. Sadly the Cleanisng Balm didn't remove every trace of make-up. I wouldn't recommend using the balm on the eyes, as it will burn a little. The scent is nice, as well as I like the plain packaging.

Overall this cleanser just isn't anything special for the price tag, unless I was having very high expectations about this product. Maybe cleansers with this kind of consistency just don't work well with my skin, I know that many people love this product.  All I can say that the Ren No.1 Purity Balm didn't dry out my skin and it didn't break me out. I might give the Emma Hardly Cleaning Balm a go next, unless you have any other recommendations, please let me know.
