Empties #1

Empties #1

'Empties' or products I've recently used up posts are quite possibly one of my favourites posts to read from other bloggers. Now, if I was to mention this to anyone who isn't a blogger, then they'd probably find it a bit strange that I essentially like to look at photographs of recycling and read thoughts on others' rubbish. However, for me these act as mini reviews and a chance to see what someone truly thought of the product after using the entire thing. So, here's a bunch of my recycling and/or empties - depending on which way you look at it :) 

Diesel loverdose shower gel - 30ml size
I absolutely love the loverdose perfume, and mentioned in in my recent favourites post. This smells just as good and the scent lingers for a while - which I like when I'm wearing the perfume too. Not sure if I would go out of my way to repurchase this in full size, but it's a lovely extra to have with a perfume. 

Boots Natural collection Vanilla body spray  
I'm a big fan of liquid body sprays in comparison to aerosol sprays, and this has to be one of my favourites! It's pretty cheap and cheerful at around £2 (and usually on 3for2 at boots) and it's the perfect handbag spray. I'd definitely repurchase this. 

Avon Naturals room and linen spray in strawberry and white choc
This is one of those products that seemed to last forever! It was a delicious scent and made my bedroom smell like sweeties - but it was really strong & a little went a long way. I'd repurchase this - but perhaps a different scent?

Dove invisible dry deodorant 
Pretty simple - the only deodorant I use. I used to just buy what was on offer, but I absolutely love this one. Always a repurchase. 

Aussie 3 minute miracle re-constructor conditioner  
The 3min miracle range is possibly my favourite conditioner ever! I'm not quite sure I noticed the difference between the original and the re-constructor? But I will always repurchase Aussie 3 min miracle unless I find something even better - but as a general rule, my hair loves this stuff. 


Rimmel stay matte powder
Another recent favourite and something I seem to be going through a lot lately. I have about 3 on the go, so I have no doubt that this will show up again in my next empties post! A constat repurchase and amazing value! 

Natural collection pressed powder
A great powder for £1.99 - in fact I used to use this all the time, it's just I have found the stay matte to be better for my tzone and oily areas. I'd probably repurchase this if I wanted something other than stay matte as it's a perfectly good pressed powder for less than £2! 

Bourjois healthy mix foundation
Another favourite, this is my daily foundation and I'm actually on my 4th bottle of this now and I will continue to repurchase. I love the coverage and the finish it gives my skin. Tempted to try the serum version... any thoughts? 

Loreal volume million lashes extra black mascara
Only ended up trying this mascara by accident as my mum bought the wrong one - I absolutely loved this. I liked what it did to my lashes, but I didn't like the price tag ... £10.99 seems a little steep to me for a mascara? Saying that, I probably would repurchase as it did a great job but I usually swap and change mascaras and try out what's on offer!

Victoria secrets beauty rush lipgloss 
This literally lasted me forever. I know I probably shouldn't have kept the lipgloss for that long - it lasted me 2years (shameful) however it still smelled delicious and was the prettiest clear/shimmer lipgloss I owned. I'd probably repurchase if I ever went to VS again (got this in JFK!) 

Okay - so that's my empties! Quite a few as you can see, but there's something satisfying about finishing a product, it makes me feel as though I got my moneys worth - even if I didn't love it! I've already got a few products piling up for my next empties post - not sure if it will be a monthly feature on the blog, as I can't imagine finishing that many products a month. However, when my empties box is full I will certainly share! 

Do you enjoy using things up? Please let me know if you like to read these types of post and/or link me to yours! :)
