Recent Empties

Recent Empties

It's rare for me to use up all of a product before I get bored of it and leave it sitting in a drawer for the next 4 years, so I know that when I've finished one up it means I must really like it. Here's a look at what I've managed to empty in recent months.

Estée Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher. This stuff, man. It works miracles. This is my second bottle of the serum as it makes your skin look and feel flawless, particularly if you're prone to breakouts or large pores. Everyone always raves about Advanced Night Repair but this is far, far better in my opinion. I'd repurchase it in a heartbeat if it wasn't £67, but in the meanwhile I'll be contemplating if I want nice skin or to be able to eat this week.

Soap & Glory The Breakfast Scrub. This body scrub smells exactly like maple syrup and leaves your skin extremely soft. My only complaint is that it's a salt scrub, which I find can sometimes sting a lot. I'm not sure if I'd repurchase it as I've had my eye on one of the Frank coffee scrubs for a while now.

Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer. My old favourite. This is the fourth time I've bought this concealer for my dark circles and you can bet I'm going to be buying it again soon. I've tried all the raved about concealers (Collection Lasting Perfection, NARS Radiant Creamy, Clarins Instant), but this will always be my favourite. 'Moderately Fair' is the perfect pinky shade that matches my skin tone and the formula is so thick that it covers any dark circles, yet still blends easily without creasing. And at only £16.50 you get a lot for your money.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. It took me a stupidly long amount of time to source the shade 'Vanilla' (why NARS, why?) after everyone hyped it up on the Internet. I was impressed and thought it was a great concealer for blemishes because it blends easily and isn't too thick. For under eyes, however, I had to use quite a lot of product to cover any dark circles so within 3 months I'd used the whole tube up. At £22 I couldn't justify repurchasing, although I'm sure I would've if it'd been that little bit cheaper.

L'Oréal Eye & Lip Makeup Remover. Again, this is already a repurchase so one of my favourites. I've tried a fair few other eye makeup removers (I'm onto the Garnier Micellar Water now) but they don't ever seem to match this one. I find oily removers seem to be the most effective and I feel like they're not as harsh on the lashes. Plus it's only £4.99. Big yes.


What products have you finished lately? Any that you absolutely have to repurchase?
