My empties posts always seem to be so far apart, but I’m finally back with another one and I can’t believe it’s empties #9. To be fair I think that could be because I don’t include the same product more than once, it just stops things from getting repetitive. Plus it takes me ages to finish things, so theres probably that too.
This is Empties #9
Nars | All Day Luminous Foundation
When I first tried this foundation, I loved it; as time went on, I slowly realised that it isn’t for me. This foundation is more suited to those with oily skin, so I had to put a lot of effort in to make it work for my dry skin. Which is why I soon grew tired of it. I didn’t like not knowing whether or not this would sit nicely on my skin, as it tended to highlight my dry patches. It has been discontinued, and I’m not mad about it.
Repurchase?: No. I think, I’ll stick to Sheer Glow.
Maybelline | Dream Satin Liquid Foundation
As soon as I heard that this foundation is enriched with a hydrating serum; I knew I had to try it. Unlike the Nars foundation this is better suited for dry skin. It has a medium coverage, that leaves a natural radiant finish.I found myself mixing this foundation a lot because I have the shade 01 Natural Ivory which is too dark for me.
Repurchase?: Not right away, but maybe at some point in the future.
Skinny Tan | Pre-Tan Primer
This scrub is a part of the: ‘Choc’ range, and it smells amazing. It has a cookie dough scent, that I really enjoyed. It’s not harsh and is more of a gentle exfoliator, and contains cocoa extract and vitamin E. This scrub does a great job of being a pre tan primer, but it’s not so good at getting rid of old tan. I also found myself getting through the tube really quickly, which is a bit of a shame.
Repurchase?: It’s a nice scrub, but I’m not desperate to repurchase.
Lush | Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub
I received this scrub in a set at Christmas, and it’s really nice. The texture is great, and it is such a lovely blue colour. My least favourite thing about this has to be the scent, it contains: Fresh Lemon Juice, Jasmine Flower Infusion, Orange Flower Absolute and Mimosa Absolute. Which makes for a floral yet citrusy scent, which really lingers. It’s not something I’d pick up again.
Repurchase?: I can’t get past the scent, so no.
The Body Shop | Banana Bath Blend
The banana scent from The Body Shop is one of my all time favourites, so I had to pick this up when I was in store. The first time I used it; I was in love, but I also had the cold from hell. Which meant this was perfect because the scent is really strong, so I could still smell it. However, once I was better the scent reminded me of having the cold. I’m hoping that the attachment leaves, because I really want to love this scent again. This bath foam is supposed to be hydrating, but I always moisturise after a bath anyway, so I can’t really comment on that one. It created plenty of bubbles, and I got six uses from it.
Repurchase?: I’m going to give it a while, but yes.
Revolution Skincare | Rose Tonic
First of all this is really lovely toner, that I had no problems with. It didn’t break me out, but it also didn’t really do anything. I never felt like it made a great difference to my skin, but it’s not bad either. It’s just a nice toner. It has a strong rose scent, that I’m not too fond of. This is designed to restore the skin and its formulated with Vitamin E. It is also Vegan and Cruelty Free.
Repurchase?: Probably not.
There we have it, that was Empties #9.
