2013 Empties So Far







My first ever empties post woooo! Shame on me, I've always wanted to do an empties post but it just takes me so long to actually finish products so I decided that I would do a 'so far this year' empties rather than a monthly post. So, recently I have finished:

Lush Cupcake face mask - This was the only Lush face mask I ever used for quite a long time, it's been great for my skin and is really easy to use. It has a kind of chocolatey smell with a hint of mint and is aimed mostly at younger skin with a lot of antibacterial, skin clearing ingredients such as peppermint while also being moisturising which is a massive plus for me! Like most Lush face masks it retails at £5.95 but you get a lot of use out of a pot, plus if you collect five empty pots you get one for free! Will probably repurchase at some point in the future.

Lush Dragon's Egg bath bomb - I usually prefer bubble bars to bath bombs but the smell of this just intoxicated me. It's so lovely and fresh smelling. The main appeal of this bath bomb was the spectacle it puts on when put in the bath, it's a lovely little magic show with lots of foam, colour and even popping candy. I only got one use out of this which being £3.20 put me off a bit but it is a nice little treat - the bath left my skin lovely and soft!

Lush Oatifix face mask - I decided to try a new Lush face mask and went for Oatifix, it's now my favourite. It's got lots of oats and bananas in for a fantastic moisturising and exfoliating experience. I just love how it leaves my skin! It smells gorgeous too, a slight cinnamon scent on top of the banana and oats. Again it retails for £5.95 and I definitely will repurchase this!

Lush Creamy Candy bubble bar - Another Lush product... This is the cheapest bubble bar Lush sell so I picked it up to tide me over in between bigger bars. It smells lovely and sweet and turns the water pink and creamy. I got about 4 uses out of this one little bar so I was pretty happy with that! I probably will repurchase this, at only £2.50 for such a lovely Lush product it's well worth it.

Soap & Glory Hand Food (travel size) - This is my go to hand cream. It is amazing. Leaves my hands so soft and smelling amazing! I love the little travel size to just throw in my bag and go. I've had this tube for a really long time now and it's started to get a bit gunky around the lid so it's definitely time to be replaced! It's only £2.50 for the travel size which is really handy just to have.

Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser - I mentioned this in my Current Beauty Favourites video as it is my all time favourite moisturiser. I've used this for years and it's just perfect. Sinks in really well and leaves my skin feeling nice and soft as well as being noticeably clearer. I've already repurchased it as it is one of my staple products and a total bargain at only £3.79 and it tends to be on 3 for 2 quite a lot too!

John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Styling Spray - Also mentioned in my Current Beauty Favourites video, this is my holy grail every day hair product. I use this constantly and I've never quite found anything that lives up to it! It leaves my hair in really nice condition and helps to define my curls and tame the frizz. I will always repurchase this until I find something that ticks all of my oh-so-fussy boxes. It tends to be around the £5 mark but can usually be found on offer somewhere, Tesco regularly do a 3 for £10 on the whole Frizz Ease range so I always make the most of that!

What products have you been loving - or not loving - recently?
