Hey girls! So I loveeee reading/watching empties post/videos! I have actually tried to do this post before but well, it never happened. lol! I just love finding out what others have been loving so I am starting a new segment on my blog & this is empties post volume I! *yay* I will post short reviews or my verdict on these products before I toss them away!
A collection of my empties (some might have afew more usage), well kinda because I left out a few items so they were not included in the picture above!
First up, we have haircare & bodycare!
Phyto Phytolisse Anti Frizz Shampoo - I have never felt like a shampoo on it’s own has amazing charms to work & really de-frizz my hair. Same thing with this phyto product, it does help smoothen my hair slightly but total anti frizz, not really. Maybe that’s just coz I’ve got way too frizzy hair.lol!
TheBodyShop Satsuma Body Polish - This is one product which I cannot live without!! Whenever I run out of this body polish, I run out to get a new one! Satsuma is one of my favourite scents from TBS so I usually grab it! It smells so fresh & makes me feel so alive after a shower! This is used on days when I feel my skin is needing a scrub to brighten it but I don’t have time/don’t feel like using a full on scrub. This works well since it is just used in replacement of my usual shower gel.
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Scrub - Well I am still using this, not exactly done with it yet & honestly I’ll be sad to part with it! I got this in Aussie when I went in Sept & have not been able to find this range in Sg (why!!!!). I have been using it every single day since I got back from Aussie & I LOVE IT! I need more, my mom is heading back to Aussie next month & yes this will be one of the products that I’ll be getting mom to grab for me
five one tube. It has a citrus scent which is soooo refreshing in the morning! Plus it has so beads which really helps in slight exfoliation.
Philosophy Melon Daiquiri - I love love love their shower gels! I bought this when Philosophy just hit our shores but I didn’t use it immediately. It lathers up ALOT, maybe because it is also made to be a bubble bath, but I love that it lathers up so much! Plus it just smells amazing
Phyto ColourTreated Hair Conditioner - Just showing 1 of the container but I’ve use sooo many of these. Since I have really thick hair one little tub can last me 2 washes. This product unlike the shampoo I feel really makes a difference to my hair. It really helps soften & make my hair more managable. As for how it works for colour treated hair, I did not really observe any difference, maybe because I wasn’t paying any attention to it.
LUSH Sympathy For The Skin (Not pictured) – It contains vanilla, cocoa butter & even banana which helps it to be really really moisturizing! I do love how this product works, it isn’t very sticky or tacky. Only down side is that it is in a tub so if you’re the kind who don’t like to dig your hand in products then you might not like it. As for me I don’t feel it’s much of a biggie. Not going to repurchase because it is pretty pricey, plus it has a pretty short shelve life because it’s all natural & I might enjoy my TheBodyShop body butters just a slight bit more, but it’s nice to have a switch up once in a while!
Next up more makeup related products!
Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover - I LOVE LOVE Clarins to bits, I’m sure everyone reading my blog would already know but I feel that this eye makeup remover was, meh. It wasn’t the best I’ve used neither is it the worst, it was just one of those products that I’ve tried & probably will not repurchase. If you wear light eye makeup this works well but with mascara it does take slightly longer to remove. I am still sticking by & loving my Bifesta remover for the time being.
MAC Cleanse Off Oil - I am honestly not a huge fan of makeup removing oils, not sure why, but I just don’t fancy them. Maybe because they tend to cloud up my eye. This removes makeup pretty well, eye makeup & all but the fact that I have to ‘rub’ it over my eye for a bit before it removes the mascara doesn’t please me. Another product which I’ll not repurchase.
Revlon ColourStay - Do I need to say more? Love this product! Awesome coverage & hence I only use it on days where I really feel I need extra coverage. Not a foundation I use on a day to day basis but I feel like I must always have it at hand, just cause. & yes already bought a back up. hehe.
MAC Brush Cleanser - This belonged to momsie, & for the longest time she was using it to wash her brushes!!! Just imagine how much she was using, because that was what the MAC MA taught her! After I taught her how to wash her brushes using baby shampoo/Diaso detergent she has not used it. I took it from her for spot cleaning & I love how it works! Helps me wash my brushes lesser, since I do feel like when I wash them too much they get stray hair much faster! Nothing except olive oil is able to remove my gel liner from the brush but this works like magic! Love how I won’t ever have crusty eyeliner brushes! yay! & I’ve already bought a bottle since.
Benefit Hello Flawless - This product has been repurchased at least twice. I love love this product, I don’t usually use this with a foundation since it is a two way. I usually wear it on it’s own since I don’t need much coverage at all & yes I do get flawless skin Not gonna repurchase it at the moment since I’m trying to get through more products but I would highly highly recommend it!
More makeup products since I forgot to include them!
MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation - I actually am kinda neutral about this foundation. I feel with a good base this foundation does look pretty smooth & satin looking. On it’s own it’s just okay, not that I don’t like it but I also don’t go around raving about it. The coverage is about a medium which can be sheered out slightly. It does tend to feel slightly ‘heavier’ on the skin for a foundation which isn’t full coverage.
the POREfessional Primer - This is one product which I get everyone around me to buy or I just buy it for them. HAHA It is pretty awesome, it gives a really nice smooth finishing to the skin & I wear it even with Benefit’s Hello Flawless & they make an excellent duo! I’ve managed to snagg the jumbo size from Sephora when it was available & I am so pleased with myself HAHA!
Last up, skincare products!
I’m sorry this picture is so blurry! I don’t even know why but I’ve tossed the products out so I can’t re-take the picture.
Clarins Bright Plus HP Brightening Hydrating Day Lotion - Phew sucha long name! I love this product, when used as a set with the serum & the toner. On it’s own I feel the efficacy isn’t as great as when used a set. When used as a set I really really see it brighten my skin! As for the day lotion on it’s own, just like every other Clarins product it smells amazing & it is pretty light in texture but it still hydrates the skin pretty well!
Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Gel - This product has been repurchased by me probably 7-9 times or there about. Yes, a testament of how much I love it? I think almost the whole time while I lived in Aussie I used this. If I remember correctly, this product only launched after I went over & when momsie was there we happened to see it in Myers & I haven’t looked back. It is amazingly hydrating, sometimes I feel its abit hard to see how hydrating products are in Sg since it is pretty humid but I remember in the cold winter months in Aussie this was my life saver! GF came over to visit me & this too was her life saver. I think it speaks volumes since I’ve already purchase almost 10 jars. I have been also using the lip balm, serum (again purchased numerous of these) & the mask. Basically I just love this range to bits.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post, do leave a comment below if you did/did not enjoy it. I would love to hear from you guys! Also do remember to leave what you have been loving this past few months! Thanks for popping by! <3
