Why not try...

The empties #3

There comes a time once in a while when it's time for me to put all the empty bottles Ive been saving in a bag underneath my bed in the recycle bin. So before I take that trip downstairs I thought I would show and comment about what I've used up. This will therefore also be a post about a girl who used to work at Liz Earle and has now used up most of her stash - sad times.

People sometimes forget that Liz Earle does more than skincare. The Liz Earle Botanical Shine conditioner for dry or damaged hair was an absolute treat; my hair felt more nourished and looked healthy and shiny. I loved how creamy the formula was. This is definitely going on my repurchase list.

I had a wonderful time using the Sarah Chapman Intense Hydrating Booster . I would put it up there with some of the best skincare I have ever used. It is a very light-weight serum which gave my skin so much hydration making it looked nourished and plumper. I would love to purchase this again but the price tag brings a tear to my eye...

You must know by now that the Oskia Renaissance Gel Cleanser is one of my all time favourite cleansers. I will soon be re-purchasing my fourth bottles.

The Herbal Essences Clearly naked Shampoo is the cheapest thing in this post at a whopping price of £2.50. My hairdresser recommended that I only buy clear shampoos as my hair was getting very greasy and 'flat.' This has been a little gem and Im now on my second bottle.

Do I need to say anything else about the Colab sheer and invisible dry shampoo (empties are the London and New York scents). If you're a brunette gal then you need to try these.

I have recently written a post about my favourite moisturisers, in which the Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser has a big feature. Click here to read in detail about my love.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Limited Edition pink pepper and mint (no longer available)

I find the Lush The Comfortor shower gel so 'comforting' and uplifting. I really relied on this when i wasn't very well before Christmas. The smell is like a warming Riben/Vimto and it's pink and shimmery - amazing.

Max Factor Clump Defy Mascara is probably my favourite drug-store mascara. I love it, love it love. Again, I am now on my third tube of this.

The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof eye makeup remover - how many times have I raved about this? The best eye makeup remover ever.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Limited Edition Jasmine and osmanthus  (no longer available). I think this was my favourite of the limited edition scents. I really think Liz Earle should continue with some of their limited edition scents of the famous cleanser.

From now on I will always recommend the Liz Earle Orange Flower botanical body wash to anyone who suffers with dry/eczma prone skin. A lovely refreshing shower gel that contains no nasties and lots of vitamin E and essential oils to help nourish and moisturise the skin.

March favourites

We all know I'm a loyal Liz Earle fan so when the new limited edition cleanse and polish came out I had to make a purchase. The new Cleanse and Polish Rose and Cedrat is a really relaxing scent that makes it the perfect Spring time cleanser. Still the same old wonderful cleanser with the refreshing new smell.

I have not stopped wearing the Nars Velvet Matte skin tint since I bought it at the beginning of the month. I have always wanted to try the original Nars Skin tint but after reading so many praises for this newbie I thought it was worth a try. Whilst I wouldn't describe my skin as oily I do suffer with a troubled t-zone, meaning a lot of powder throughout the day. This product however has completely solved these skin-issues. Whilst it's matte it still gives a very natural all over finish. I'm not sure if I would describe this as a 'skin tint' however, as it packs a lot of coverage.

Admittedly I bought the Clinique Pop Laquer lip colour in the shade Wink pop because I'll buy anything that Vivianna Does Makeup reviews and it was just so pretty. This is an odd one in the sense that it's a lipgloss with the colour of the lipstick and the power of a primer…?!

Now when the Rosie for Autograph makeup launched with that Lisa Eldridge video I was pen to paper writing our my wish list. I opted for the Rosie for Autogtaph Starstruck highlighter  - a creamy, stick highlighter which is perfect to contour on and blend into the skin. It's not too shimmery and lovely and creamy making it easy to apply.

The second purchase was the Rosie for Autograph makeup Lip glossy in the shade Super Model Smile. For me this is a 'my lips but better shade.' Again, weird in that it looks like a lipstick but comes out as a gloss. I really love this and have been wearing it most days.  The only bad thing is that it doesn't have too much staying power.
