Since I’ve been doing the spending ban (it’s been ages since I’ve done an update but I will do one soon) I’ve found myself using up more products so I thought I’d start to share my empties.
Tigi Catwalk Honey and Oatmeal Condtioner (not pictured)
My Other Half through away the bottle not realising I was saving them. I picked this up for £12.99 in TKMaxx. They always have lots of varieties of Tigi and Bedhead products at reasonable prices. As they are huge bottles they last ages. This is aimed at dry hair and I absolutely love it. It really conditioners my hair well, is light and leaves my hair soft. I will be repurchasing once I’ve used one I picked up from the hairdressers to add protein back into my hair.
Charles Worthington Dry Shampoo
I reviewed this one just yesterday so won’t go into much detail. It’s great size for the handbag but as Batiste do handbag versions I won’t be repurchasing this as I didn’t think it was as good.
Redken Colour Extend radiant-10
This is marketed as a multi benefit treatment spray for coloured hair. For my as it’s advertised as colour extend it did nothing to help the colour of my hair stay. I also don’t think it did much for the condition. I got this free in a beauty box and wouldn’t repurchase.
I love love love bastiste. Used it for years. You can read more in yesterday’s post. I’ve already got another can of this waiting.
Clariol Nice ‘n’ Easy Colour Seal Gloss Conditioner
These come in the Nice ‘n’ Easy hair dye sets and can now be bought separately. They are great for adding a boost of moisture for the hair. Once of the spending ban I will be repurchasing as I love these.
Boots Essentials Cleansing Wipes
I usually pick these up or some from Wilkinsons. I tend to use wipes to clean my foundation brushes daily. I used to use them to remove make up but favour a make up remover in liquid form now. I will still use them for lazy days. These are great value and usually on offer too. I always store wipes upside down as it helps keep them moist for if they aren’t used regularly.
Origins Balanced Diet
I’ve mentioned this in my Save, Spend, Splurge series for day creams. It’s ok and good for oilier skin tones as it’s a very light moisturiser. It lasted quite a while too as a little goes a long way. For me though I felt it was a little over priced for a moisturiser that didn’t offer and think else. I like my cream to have something that helps to keep wrinkles at bay too.
Origins Starting Over
This was a product I got from Origins when they offered a free moisturiser when you bought back an empty moisturiser. This product isn’t great for oily skin types and is aimed at more mature skin so I stuck to using it as a night cream as it was heavier. Even though it was heavy it didn’t break me out which is a good thing. I wouldn’t repurchase this purely as there is better for my skin type.
Lush Sugar Lips
I love this lip scrub. It’s amazing. I use it morning and night and it really helps keep my lips nice and soft. It is around £5 and lasts ages. I keep it by my bed so I remember to use it and it has made such a difference. I already had one in my stash but will be repurchasing when that one runs out.
Avon Sparkle Glimmer Stick in Black
This is a product Avon re release around Christmas time usually. I got this in a set and put it to one side as I thought a glitter eye liner wasn’t that wearable. I’ve been using it most days since the spending ban started as I’m trying to save my gel liner and use up other products. The glitter doesn’t show to much on lids making it still wearable for days. I like that it winds up and doesn’t need sharpening. If I see this on sale I would buy it again.
Bourjois Volume Max Mascara Waterproof
I picked this mascara up on a whim. It had a huge chunky bristle brush which I love in mascara’s. I didn’t mean to get the waterproof as I find I don’t usually like them as much and they are hard to remove. Since switching to liquid make up removers I quite like this mascara. It gives great volume and looks amazing. It’s reasonably prices and great for summer do to the waterproof formula.
Rimmel Perfect Match 2in1 concealer and highlighter
I really like this and this is my second bottle. It’s great for brightening under the eyes and does conceal pretty good. It’s a light formulation and blends great. The only downside to this is the fact it has a brush applicator which I don’t like very much. I would repurchase.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
This is a very raved about product in bloggersphere. I’ve had this since it was first released now and at first I did really love it. It smelt amazing and gave the skin a great glow. But I’ve found I just don’t really like it on my skin. I find it doesn’t last great on me and the colour selection just isn’t that great. For me I wouldn’t repurchase.
Avon Orange and Cinnamon Bubble Bath
This is one of the Christmas scents. They sell these on great offers if you keep your eye out. I was lucky enough and my other halfs mum gave us loads of them. I don’t find that they give the best bubbles without using loads of the products. Personally I prefer other bubble baths so I wouldn’t repurchase.
Soap and Glory Hand Food
This is another product loved by bloggersphere. I do think it’s a great hand cream that smells and feels great. I prefer an Avon one I’m using at the moment though so wouldn’t repurchase. I do have another of these to use up first.
So that’s my first empties post. I plan to do these a bit more now. I won’t do monthly as I don’t think I’ll get through that many products. Hope you enjoyed seeing what I’m using.
