Spring Empties 2018!

First empties of the year! Last year I did an empties every other month, however I found I never really used up that many products within those two months. Which sometimes made me feel like I didn’t have enough for a post. So this year I decided to try out waiting for three months worth of empties and see if that made the posts better. So these are all the things I have used up since January through to March!

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast High-Definition Collagen-Coat Mascara
I do like this mascara, but I find more often than not it clumps my lashes together the longer it had been open for. I did a full review here if you fancy checking it out so I won’t waffle on too much!
Repurchase – Already have as I got one in a gift set

Soap & Glory Archery 2-in-1 Sculpting Crayon & Setting Gel
This is one of my fave brow products. It’s super easy to fill in my brows for either no makeup makeup days or a more glam look. My brows are naturally quite thick so it’s super quick and easy for me to fill them in with this, brush my brows then set them with the gel on the other side.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
This is such a good makeup setting spray, it doesn’t break my skin out or irritate my skin. Locks in everything perfectly and there is nothing bad about it in my opinion!

Sukin Oil Balancing Clarifying Facial Tonic
I bought this as I really like the Sukin face masks. I found that it doesn’t dry out my skin or break out my skin. I liked using this facial tonic but I can’t say I noticed a difference in my skin other than not breaking out after using it.
Repurchase – Only if I couldn’t find another I wanted to try or if it was on offer in Boots around the time I needed a new toner.

No 7 Youthful Eye Serum
I got this from a gift set and I did enjoy using it. It helped keep my eyes hydrated and it’s a nice product. However I think it’s meant to be used along side another eye cream as on the packaging it says to use under the No 7 Eye Cream. It seems to be an additional skincare product and for me I’d rather just use one eye cream, mainly to save time!
Repurchase – No

No 7 Beautiful Skin Pore Vacuum Mask
I bought this after seeing so many people rave about pore masks, and of course those videos on FaceBook of people pulling out their pores and blackheads intrigued me. However it definitely didn’t do much for my pores/blackheads. Unless you have large pores and blackheads I feel this doesn’t really do much in terms of pulling stuff out form the skin.
Repurchase – No

The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Sleeping Cream
I have had this for ages and it has been sat at the back of my skincare draw for a while. I really enjoyed using this sleeping cream. It made my skin feel so smooth and soft in the morning. I used it mainly after using face masks to replenish my skin. I clung onto this for as long as I could as the regular size is £29, which for me is quite pricey for a night cream.
Repurchase – Definitely if I could get past the price tag.

Sukin Revitalising Facial Scrub
I bought this as I really like the Sukin facial masks. However I not really a fan of this scrub, it’s not scrubby enough for me. Whilst it didn’t irritate my skin or cause any breakouts I just prefer something with more scrubbiness in it.
Repurchase – No

The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil (forgot to picture)
I love this makeup remover, my skin can be quite sensitive when it comes to taking makeup off. I found with other makeup removers I have to really work them into the skin to get rid of eyeliners and liquid lipstick, whereas this one I find  really don’t have to rub my eyes to get any eyeliner off. The only complaint I have about this product is that I find the pump leaks, especially when travelling.
Repurchase – Already have!

Boots Botanics Facial Oil 
I bought this during winter as during the winter my skin got drier than usual. I had seen a lo of good things about using facial oils, I was nervous to use this as I have combination skin. I have been using this at night to help my skin get hydrated and it has really saved my skin from drying out! It does leave a slight oily residue but as I only use this at night, by morning it has sunk into my skin.
Repurchase – Next winter I would definitely try another facial oil!

And those are all the things I have used up over winter! Thank you so much for reading! Until next time
