Empties aka trash talk 2.0

It gives me so much satisfaction finishing up a product, here are the empties I've worked through

DHC Cleansing Oil, I have already repurchased this bottle of makeup remover, there is no scent and as the first step of removing my makeup it breaks down everything I have on my face including waterproof mascara. A great thing about this is that it does not sting my eyes or strip my skin. I have a review here.

Missha Time Revolution Essence, hands down my holy grail essence lotion, it helps hydrate my skin and keeps the moisture locked in, it's great for anti-ageing and helps with uneven skin tone, this is already in my basket on Yesstyle ready to hit checkout. I've featured this in my evening routine and best of skincare.

Milk Makeup Watermelon Brightening Serum, I love this solid serum and it really has converted me to trying more solid products, although it does not smell like watermelon it really helped even out my skin tone and most importantly, hydrate my skin. I have a full review here.

April Skin Calendula Peel Off Pack, It has taken me some time to go through this, it felt never-ending. I love a good peel-off mask that helps cleans out your pores and get rid of dead skin cells. I love how this mask leaves my skin super soft the next day if I were to pick up a peel-off mask again this will be on my list. I have a full review here.

Blanx Pro Charcoal Whitening Toothpaste*, I was gifted this toothpaste and previously received PR from Blanx but this seriously helps keep my teeth nice and white, the charcoal colour may look scary from the tube but really does help with stains and is not too minty that makes my eyes water. I am sad I have no more but I already have repurchased another from Blanx. I've featured the Blanx toothpaste in my favourites.

Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food Hair Mask, instead of conditioner I use a hair mask which I leave on for a few minutes while I am in the shower, this smells sweet and contains coconut oil. I found that it nourished my hair very well. If you like using a hair mask this is a huge tub for such an affordable price.

Biore UV Perfect Sun Milk, it's not often I trash products that I have not used up but this sunscreen really dries up my skin and does not protect me against UV rays. I use this on my face only and I have gotten two shades darker. It's not like I go out in the sun very much, maybe 10 minutes to walk back indoors. This is SPF 50 and I expected it to protect me against the sun more. I won't risk passing this along to someone else. My full review is here.

What empties have you been working through?

Until next time!

    1. Yes! It's like the pixi glow moisturiser !

  4. So I really wanna try the bits from Blanx!

  5. The Milk Serum sounds quite interesting, i have the Cannabis mask and I can't quite decide on it yet, I do however love the concept and stick form packaging, it is great.

    Oh and I agree, it is so satisfying using up a product.

    1. I've been looking at the masks too but the watermelon one x

  6. I have always wondered if Blanx 'actually' works. I have tried out so much teeth whitening stuff this year so maybe it's time to try Blanx! x
