The Empties #2

I am currently undergoing the stressful process of moving house. Whilst I pack and chuck I thought I would share with you my bag of empties from the past year...brace yourselves, it's a long one!

The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover is definitely the best out there: does  the job (superbly, I might add) and is affordable. Simple. I dread to think how many bottles I get through in a year…! I love a cleansing oil in my evening skincare routine and usually use the matching Camomile one. However the Una Brennan Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Cleansing Oil is a great drugstore option too. My only complaint about it is the packaging: it gets very, very sticky. 

The Soap and Glory Archery 2-in-1 Brow Pencil  is probably one of my hero makeup products. Spooley one end and thin eye pencil the other, nothing gets my brows in to a more presentable shape as quickly as this one does. 

Since trying out the travel size of Colab Dry Shampoo I've had to buy a full size can. It's the first one I've tried that doesn't leave white marks - a big thumbs up from a brunette. 

I recently did a post on the Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream which you can read here. It's a very simple moisturiser that leaves skin feeling hydrated throughout the day. I will definitely add to my repurchase list. 

I discovered La Roche Posay Serozinc after the famous BodyTalks Caroline Hirons YouTube interview (how many times have I mentioned that on my blog now?!). You can read my more detailed post about this item here

If you're looking for a mascara that separates and gives serious length then look no further than the LOrĂ©al Telescopic False Lash Mascara. This is the end of my second one. I don't understand why you would pay extra for a high end mascara when you see the results produced by this wand. Equally, the Barry M Blink Eyeliner has been a favourite in my makeup bag for a few years. I'm yet to find another eyeliner pen that is as easy to use as this. 

I always shed a tear when I reach the end of the Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair. Whilst it is scarily expensive it is definitely one of the best skincare items on the market. I loved my skin when I used this: it was visibly more plumper, blemish free and hydrated. 

Then we move to the body and hair empties...

When the Imperial Leather Foamburst Body Wash is on offer I throw it straight into the basket. Is it sad that I get a tad excited to use this?! The instant foam thing makes me feel extra clean and I like that. On the other hand I regularly pick up the Original Source shower gels. They smell lovely and are Vegan approved so you know they've got no nasties in them. I don't have much to say about the Radox Coconut Kiss I'm afraid. It was nice…it smelt like coconuts?? It doesn't get me as excited as Imperial Leather. End of. 

As you can see, I squeezed every drop out of my Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Shampoo and Conditioner. If you have dry hair then this one is for you - my hair is always left feeling more nourished after my shower. 

Don't diss the addition of my Mitchum deodorant.  I actually had four empties cans of it, but I didn't think a photo of them all together would be aesthetically pleasing! I've used it for years, no other deodorant compares. 

And there was the record for my lengthiest post. Cup of tea followed by an order of the essentials I think!
