So long, farewell - Empties #3

I've been very very good and tried long and hard to use up lots of products.  I think I have been quite successful.  See . . .

The mass of empties

I have split the empties into three different photographs below.  One is makeup/skin care, two is hair/body products and three is facial and miscellaneous products.

Picture One:
·        As you can tell I love the One by One Voulm’ Express by Maybelline, there are two empty tubes.  I have a full review here if you wish to see pictures and hear my thoughts.  But one word to describe this is da bomb!  Well that’s two words.
·        Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge is my favourite mascara for those bottom lashes, it doesn’t move an inch.  No panda eyes for me – no sir!  A tad expensive but totally worth it if like me your bottom lash mascara likes to move this your under eye area.
·        Bobbi Browns Hydrating Eye Cream is hands down my favourite eye cream.  I’m sad that I have finished this pot and I’ll definitely be buying more.  My under eyes always feel hydrated after using this.  Wrinkles and puffiness be gone!
·        For a little freebie from Sephora this Balenciaga Paris perfume was a hit!  I am really tempted to buy a full size bottle.  It is quite a strong scent which I like.  It feels like it lasts a long time on the skin.
·        I love my Bobbi Brown Face Base primer (review here),  but if I ever needed another different one I was opt for the Laura Mericer Oil Free Primer.  This makes your makeup go on smoothly and makes it last all day!
·        Another freebie is the L’Occtaine Immortelle Precious Cream – I really notice a difference when I used this, my skin just feels firmer.  I have already repurchased a full size pot.
·        My L’Oreal Super Liner is ancient it should be dead like the dinosaurs.  I’ve had this for years –shamefully.  But it was time to say goodbye, even though it still works. Bacteria and sensitive eyes do not mix well.
·        My not so bothered about product here, is the Simple Radiance Brightening Moisturiser, its just a basic moisturiser which is light reflecting - nothing fancy.  I struggled to finish this if I’m honest but perseverance with using this has been worth it.
Picture Two:
·        I love bargains and my £1 Boots Zingy Lime Shower Gel is perfect for the gym.  I've recently purchased the Lemon version which smells yummy.
·        My Original Bastise Dry Shampoo, what can I say!?  Hmmm I love it! 
·        Nivea Pearl and Beauty antiperspirant mini bottle is perfect for the gym.  I like it so much I’d buy a full size bottle.  It has a nice scent.
·        Another much loved product is the Macadamia Healing Oil – I don’t know how I ever lived without this product.  It's now a must have in my hair routine.
·        The Original Source was the husbands until I stole it.  He kept using my Original Source Raspberry and Vanilla so I stole his Mint one. Haha revenge is sweet!

Picture Three:
·        Johnson Normal Skin Face Wipes are always going to be a repurchase for me.  They never dry out in the packet and remove makeup and even waterproof mascara without any trouble.
·        For a £1 bottle of Boots Nail Polish remover this lasts ages.  I can't really say too much since well it is nail polish remover!!
·        Liz Earle Soothing Eye lotion is sooo lovely.  It's so refreshing I would certainly buy more if it was easier to get my hands on.
·       Garnier Blackhead scrub is ok for a scrub but I didn't see much improvement when it came to combating the blackheads.  I won't be buying this again.

I have also done a video to accompany this post, which will be up on my YouTube channel tonight.  Fingers crossed.  Enjoy!
