Spring empties + make-up clean-up

Ahoy peeps,

A couple of weeks ago I did my bi-annual make-up clean-up which didn't produce that many products, however I was quite overwhelmed by the amount of empties I had accumulated since my last empties post. Unfortunately some of the items (shown at the end) I had to throw away before I for a chance to do this post, since they finished while I was in the U.S. visiting family. So, in order to keep my suitcase as light as possible, I got rid of the containers.
Now let's get started with this post. Make-up is first, of course...

Wet n Wild Cover All concealer: Too cakey/dry for me. / Collection lasting perfection concealer: The best affordable concealer out there. / Garner BB cream concealer**: I wish the colour range would include lighter colours. 
YSL faux Cils mascara: Not much to say...I adore it. / NO7 Intense Volume Mascara: good but not amazing/ TBS Brow and Lash Gel: I have gone through many of these but I think you can find more affordable ones on the market. 

Nars "Laguna" Bronzer: The ultimate bronzer for my skin tone/ Supercat Liquid eyeliner by Soap and Glory: Glorious product and very affordable. / Bobbi Brown Corrector: Love this product as you probably know. 
Mavala nailpolish (49): Great white polish / H&M nail polish (pink flamingo): This was a rose gold glitter polish that turned orange and then solidified(no joke) so I can safely say I will not be purchasing any more of the h&m nail varnishes./ Sally Hansen Insta Dry Top Coat: This is the bomb...I have recommended this in the past and will continue to do so. AMAZING.

Simple Oil Balancing Exfoliating Wash: Love this product. Great every day way that mildly exfoliates. / Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile: I think this is one of the best toners out there. / L'oreal Ideal Glow cleansing oil: It is the 4th bottle I have used and I only have good things to say about it. 
TresSemme Dry Shampoo: HG...nothing else to say/ Mythic Oil Shampoo**: If you have dry hair this might just be the product you need to make your hair silky and soft. It was a bit too moisturising for my hair though./ Vichy Anti-Perspirant : LOVE this./ Strep Crystal Depilatory Strips: Never again. This product was a waste of money.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir: I am a huge fan of this and I purchase it whenever I can afford it. / Bioderma Sensibio H2O: Nothing else to say about this amazing product.It is always in my collection. / Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado: Loved this eye cream and I think I will be re-purchasing it in the future. 

Soap and Glory "Hand Food" hand cream: Luscious and amazing./ L'occitane Eau Essentielle: A great refreshing facial water and a great alternative to the Caudalie. / Avene Fluide Matifiant: Great mattifying moisturiser. I used it as a make-up base and loved it. 

This is what my clean-up produced. Some ELF products, an ancient nail balm by sephora, a face mask, a very glittery eyeliner and a Duo lash adhesive. Better something than nothing I suppose :P 

Empties that didn't make it home
Bath and Body Works Sensual Amber body cream: Lovely wintery scent and a moisturising formula.
Bath and Body works Cashmere body mist: Great body mist but the scent is a hit or miss.
Origins GinZing moisturiser: I have already purchased my second jar of this. Such a great product.
Sephora Express Body Scrub and Mask: This is a nice product to have in the shower however if you are looking for an invigorating scrub this is not it. It is mild and does the job of a daily exfoliant. The "mask" part is actually what I liked the best. The clay helps take your daily body cleansing to the next level. It has my seal of approval. ;) 

That is all for today. If you have any questions about any of the products please feel free to ask me. 
And,as always, I hope you liked this post.

  2. I love several, I'd say. The origins GinZinc, the YSL mascara, the NARS bronzer and the Bioderma are some of my all time favourites!

  3. Collection 2000 concealer is the best! I also like bioderma to remove my make-up and as a toner sometimes!

    1. absolutely!I wish they had a wider colour range. As for bioderma it is such a versatile and simple product. :)
