It’s that time once again! The little box I keep full of my beauty empties was full, and I wanted to share some thoughts on the products I’ve recently used up. Let’s dive straight in!
In the top photo, you can see the John Frieda Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Shampoo – this is a long-time favourite of mine, and I think I’ll continue to buy it forever more. I just know it’s going to keep my highlights fresh and bright, and it’s never let me down. Next to that there’s the Ojon Color Sustain Pro Shampoo, which I did like but it took me a while to use it up. It’s not my go-to shampoo but it’s a good alternative – I tend to use it when my hair need that little extra nourishment alongside a good cleanse. Finally we have the Redken Color Extend Conditioner, which I really enjoyed using and would definitely recommend to any fellow blondies!
On the bottom left is the Batiste Blonde Dry Shampoo, which is probably my favourite one of all. It’s perfect for giving my roots a boost, especially when I haven’t had my highlights freshened up at the salon for a little while. I love this product, and it’s really affordable too. Next up is the Pearl Drops Restore White toothpaste, which did a decent job but I rarely notice a HUGE difference with whitening toothpastes. Not a bad option though!
Next up, the bottom right of the photo. This lovely Gok Wan Body Lotion lasted for ages and I really enjoyed using it – all of his bath products are gorgeous, and this was no exception. I also used up two of the Natural Collection Green Concealers that I go on about at every opportunity (they are AMAZING) so that’s no surprise! Then there was the Maybelline Colossal Go Extreme Mascara which was a good, affordable drugstore mascara choice. I rarely think mascaras are mind-blowing, but this one seemed to work well – no complaints!
Skincare products are the most frequent feature in my Empties post and videos, and as you can see there’s no exception to that rule today! As many of you know, I work for Simple as their Kind Creator and am lucky enough to be sent lots of goodies from the brand. I always get through a million packets of the Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes, which I absolutely love, and I’ve already finished up a whole bottle of the new Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water! It has totally changed my skincare routine and it’s hands-down my favourite new beauty product of 2015 so far. If you haven’t tried it, I’d highly recommend picking one up soon!
On the bottom of the image, we have a few Simple staples that I’ve gone through. First up, the Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser – this was my go-to moisturiser throughout the early months of this year, when the weather was super cold and rough on my skin. I love it! I’m equally a huge fan of the Simple Soothing Facial Toner, and this bottle lasted me forever – it’s really kind and gentle, and fits perfectly in my routine. The Vital Vitamin Foaming Cleanser has been my favourite morning cleanser for years now, and I’ve probably featured a bottle of this almost every time I’ve talked about my beauty Empties! Finally we have the Vital Vitamin Night Cream, which I finished a little while ago and absolutely adore for the evenings once I’ve taken off my make up.
Phew! There are all of my most recent Empties – have you tried any of these products?
