Products i've used up | July/August



Hey dolls,
I recently came to the end of a few products of mine, I have been collecting them up so I could do a video and blog post on them. I really enjoy reading/watching about other peoples 'empties' so Thought I would do a second one!
I thought I wouldn't go too much into detail on my blog because I have already spoken about all the products in my video which I have included so please check it out for more detail on each product.
I do wonder if anyone else has tried any of these products and what you thought of them too? Its always interesting to see how products work for others!


Skincare Products
Simple face wipes - These are something I go through like the clappers, I use them daily to remove my makeup and then I give my face a second cleanse afterwards. They get my makeup off well and are my favourite drugstore wipes.

Murad Claritying mask - I really enjoyed using this Murad sample and I found it did help alot when I had breakouts, I'd recommend it to anyone with oily skin or spot/acne problems.

Neutrogena 2 in 1 wash & mask - This is another staple of mine, I always have to have one around! Works great on troublesome skin and always helps to clear away my breakouts.

Elizabeth Arden skin balancing moisturiser - This is a new discovery for me and i've fallen in love, It is indeed balancing, absorbs quickly and it is extremely lightweight on the skin, also has a lovely fresh cucumber scent.


Body products
NIP + FAB Pistachio sundae body cream - I thought this could be a dupe for the Laura Mercier pistachio cream but, no no. It is so sickeningly sweet! I guess I should have known by the 'sundae' part! It also feels odd slathering green goo onto yourself after a nice fresh shower.

The Body shop Fuzzy peach shower gel - This is okay, Not too much to say about it, it just does the job!

Original Source Mint + tea tree shower Gel - I love this product, it leaves you literally tingling after you step out of the shower, Great for a morning wake-me-up.

Dead sea skin spa body lotion - This did leave my skin silky smooth, I was surprised! It also has a nice light scent, nothing too obnoxious, it sinks in quickly, will defiantly purchase the full size.


Bits and bobs
E.L.F Brow gel - This is another holy-grail of mine, Its so inexpensive and it keeps my brows in place all day, perfect!

Sally Hansen strengthening polish remover - This was okay, again, it does the job! I didn't notice it help my nails to be honest but I don't usually notice that with many polish removers anyway.

Dove original deodorant - A boring but well loved entry, I have used this for years and it never fails me, it keeps my underarms moisturised (nice!) and I never sway from it!

Alice said...

Do you find cleansing your face twice helps with breakouts? I suffer from them really badly and I'm wondering if I should use wipes before I cleanse to help the problem.

Original source shower products are the best..love them all..I love Neutrogena as well, HG!! I use the exfoliating scrub though..haven't tried this mask/scrub one

GuysCallMeShawna said...

The best thing about the elf gel, besides it's price, is by the time it gets on the yucky cloudy unusable side of consistency, It's just about gone and I am ready for the other end!

AyeAnnalise said...

i love the orginal source washes! especially the lemon ones, its like the mint one in that it really leaves you feeling so clean! great post sammi! x
