I don't believe I've done an empties post before but I have been accumulating a few empty bottles and thought I'd share them with you. This is all stuff I used up throughout spring, or just before, so you can really get a feel for what I love to use on a daily basis. I personally love to know what people have used up as it really shows what people genuinely use, love and reach for. I have a few bits to get through so I'm going to split them up into categories to make it a bit easier to follow!
I always seem to run out of everything at once when it comes to skincare so I have a fair few products here. The first is a toner and it's the LUSH Tea Tree Water which has been a favourite of mine for a long time. I won't ramble on about each product as I'm writing a blog post not a novel, but if I've used it up, it must be good. This is a great toner for problematic skin as the tea tree is really calming and soothing on the skin and is also great to combat blemishes. Another toner type product is the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, a princess product, but it's a super refreshing mist which I love to use in the mornings to wake my skin up. The travel size I always use on planes, it's great! My morning serum throughout the beginning of the year was from Origins and it was their Original Skin Serum, a really lightweight cream formula which helps to plump and hydrate the skin. It's not an oil, so it does feel like you've popped on two moisturisers, but I'm okay with that! I would definitely repurchase this! A moisturiser which I fell in love with was the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Riche Moisturiser which is seriously amazing stuff. It's a very thick cream but it sinks in surprisingly well for such a rich formula. If you have dry skin you have to try this, it's also suitable for sensitive skin. This is by far one of the best moisturisers I've tried!
I always have a NUXE Reve de Miel sitting around so it's no surprise it's found its way into an empties. As far as lip balms go, this one is pretty darn good and I love the scent. It has little exfoliating beads too, so it gives your lips an extra bit of nourishment and pampering. My last skincare pick is an exfoliator and it's the Origins Never A Dull Moment Face Polish, which I purely picked up for the smell I won't lie...I did like this, but I've kind of gone off manual exfoliators, unless it's for the body, so I won't be picking this up again. It isn't super abrasive so if you do like exfoliators, then this is one I would recommend.
The Body Shop Body Butters are amazing, and if you haven't tried them, you must right now!! I had the coconut scent and it was really lovely and nourishing. These are perfect to use to get your limbs ready for spring and summer as they really hydrate and help to get rid of any dry patches on the body. They have a million and one different scents so I urge you to give these a go! Another moisturising product is the Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion which is a gradual tanner. Now, I personally never got on with gradual tanners unless I mix them with a separate moisturiser, which is what I did with this one. I find them streaky, even if I use a mitt, they can be a bit orange at times and they overall don't look the best on my skin for some reason. If I mix it, they do appear more natural and sublet on the skin, but I think I'll stick to my regular tanners...I've also used up a deodorant from Mitchum which is a great brand for sweaty girls, no shame! I liked this, but I prefer the roll on version as it's a bit more hardcore, but for days where I'm not doing a lot, this was lovely at keeping my underarms fresh!
I only have one hair product which is the Bumble and Bumble Dryspun Thickening Finish Spray. This is such a nice finishing spray to add texture and volume to the hair. It doesn't clog the hair and it's one I would repurchase again! Of course I've used up about 100 dry shampoos but that goes without saying, the same goes for shampoos and conditioners!
As I have tonnes of makeup I rarely finish a product up unless I use it everyday since I got it, which was the case for this. The Urban Decay Naked Concealer is a super creamy, light formula which sits well under the eyes and around the face. I love love love this stuff, and I do have a bit left but it's got to that dry stage where it's a struggle to get a good layer on the skin. If you're on the hunt for a new concealer and want one that's a good all rounder, this is fab, I can't recommend it enough! Like I said, it takes a lot for me to finish a makeup product as I'm using different things all the time, but this one really stood the test of time and was one I reached for on the daily!
I hope you enjoyed this post and found some bits you may want to pick up next time you're out and about. Please let me know down below a few things you've used up lately as I would love the know the bits you guys reach for everyday!
