Empties: September 2013
Avene Micellar Lotion - After taking part in the Esecntual Micellar Blind Trial I bought a couple of the micellar waters so I could try them out a bit more. I was only able to try them once or twice in the trial because of the sample size. I enjoyed using this one from Avene and it worked well at taking off my day to day eye make-up but it struggled to take off eye liner. I won't be buying another bottle as it doesn't beat Bioderma.
L'Oreal Micelar Water - This micellar water takes second place for me out of all the different ones I've tried. It's the best match I've found so far to Bioderma and for a fraction of the price. It doesn't have a scent, takes off every scrap of make-up and doesn't irritate my eyes. I will be buying another bottle at some point but I have others I need to finish first. A must try if you haven't already done so.
Pommade Divine Hand Cream - I featured this in my disappointing products post and I'm so glad I've finally finished it. It's a nice hand cream but didn't wow me. I also really hate the smell. I took it to work with me and just left it in my drawer and made myself use it. I don't like throwing away half empty products so I'm glad I was able to use it up. I definitely will not be buying another tube.
Weleda Wild Rose Body Wash* - I've been putting of using this shower gel as it's just so lovely! I hate applying moisturiser to my body so I tend to use moisturising bath products and this one is just that. It doesn't leave a greasy film on the skin, it actually washes away really nicely, it just leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. It also has an amazing natural rose scent which I find really relaxing. I really need to buy another bottle!
REN Tonic Moisture Mist - I can't really make up my mind if I want to buy another bottle of this toner. I really loved using it and raved about it in my review but since finishing it, I haven't really missed it. I think I'm sort of going off toners at the moment, not really liking any that I'm currently using. Perhaps I just need to buy another bottle of this? It doesn't contain alcohol and has the Caroline Hirons stamp of approval.
Lush Dream Wash - This is a must have if you suffer with eczema. It goes perfectly with Dream Cream and really helps to soothe irritated skin. It's a really thick cream which you use just like a shower gel or soap. If my eczema has flared up really bad I apply some of this onto dry skin, sort of like a mud mask and then just let it rinse off on it's own when I get in the bath. I'll be picking up another tub when I'm next in town as I can't be without it.
The Body Shop Grapefruit Lip Butter - This is an old favourite! Smells amazing and is a great lip balm. I'd buy another one if I didn't already have a million others to use first.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir - I thought I loved this and bought the 100ml bottle but I just can't ignore the alcohol in it which isn't good for my dry and sensitive skin. The 100ml bottle also seems to be a lot stronger which I'm not really sure how or why. It's nice to use when my skin is acting up with spots but I don't think I'll be buying another bottle.
YSL Parisienne Perfume - This is my second bottle of this perfume and I can't believe it's empty. I really love the scent of it and I'm sure I'll be buying another bottle at some point. It also lasts really especially if you spray a bit onto your clothes.
Essie So Haute! Nail Stickers - I wouldn't have chosen this pattern or colour myself but once I applied it, I really like it. Application was easy, despite having small nails I easily found perfect matches and removal was simple. I'd definitely look into other patterns but I'm not too sure on the price.
L'Occitane Cocoa Flower Hand Cream - Although I really like the formula of L'Occitane hand creams, I haven't found a scent I like yet. I especially didn't like this one. I have a couple more tubes from various magazines to use but I wouldn't buy the full size.
L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara - I think I bought this when it was on offer and I'm not really sure why. Instead of a wand it's a ball with spikes which sort of makes it impossible to apply. I ended up using it on my bottom lashes which worked but by the end of the day I'd have panda eyes which doesn't normally happen. I won't be buying another!
Rimmel Lash Maxx Mascara - I quite liked this mascara, from what I can remember it gave quite natural looking lashes but still gave volume and length. It's usually on offer in Asda so I'm sure I'll buy another tube at some point.
