Being beauty obsessed, it's very rare I finish up a product. Whenever I see my empties bag getting fuller I feel so accomplished. For the past six months, I have been amassing all of the products that I've either finished or have gotten well past their expiration date. Not committing to a full declutter, but if I go to use a product and it seems 'off', I'll toss it in by empties bag. My largest struggle with this is that I'm always forgetting to pop my products in the bag. I share a bathroom, so I'll often find products that should be in my empties bag, in the bin. I need to get better about putting them straight in the bag.
I, personally, love a good empties blog post. I love seeing what people liked or didn't like, or they might repurchase or not. However, I have now collected so much that this post could go on forever. I've decided to split this over several parts instead, having a handful of products in each post.
Soap and Glory Righteous Butter
This is absolutely my all-time favourite body butter! I am so in love with it that I'm already half way through my new pot. After using this, my skin feels so smooth and hydrated. I recently had some dry patches pop up on my body, and this has This smells like their Original Pink scent, which is very uplifting to me. I have been using this for so long that I automatically associate it with relaxing and pampering myself.
Soap and Glory Whipped Clean
Another one of my favourite Soap and Glory products. Whipped Clean is designed is be both a shower wash and moisturiser, as it contains so many oils and butters. This cream so much goodness, such as cocoa butter, shea butter, and sweet almond oil, to name a few. The scent is unbelievable. This smells of the Smoothie Star scent, which has to be my favourite Soap and Glory scent. The vanilla and almond act to leave the skin smelling like a yummy vanilla cake. I probably will repurchase this, but not for a while because I already have too many shower potions and lotions.
Lush The Comforter Shower Cream
I've just realised this post is half shower products, which I apologise for, but I love a relaxing shower. The Lush Comforter. Where do I start? It is probably my Lush product; the one that I will always repurchase whenever I go in the store. The blackcurrant-y goodness is just so nostalgic to me and reminds me of the blackcurrant squash I love so much when I'm sick. It is pure nostalgia in a bottle, which I applaud Lush for. I will repurchase this, but I have so many shower products that I need to whittle them down first.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer
I really enjoy the Naked Skin concealer, it currently tops my list of favourite concealers. The shade range goes light enough that I can actually go one step lighter than my skin tone and have a brightening concealer! If I set this right, I can go most of the day without seeing any creases or signs of it becoming patchy. This is another product that I have already repurchased, and to be honest, I am probably away to repurchase for the second time in the very near future.
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless
The Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless is a big hit with me. The colour match between this and my skin is on point. There have been many times were I've had to compromise on a shade match and go either a shade darker in the right undertone, or a shade with a yellower undertone but pale enough. I love the matte finish it gives my skin; matte but not emphasising the odd dry patch on my face. I have already opened my next bottle of it, and I'm still loving it.
I'd love to know what some of your recent empty products are. Or if you have used any of these products, what were your thoughts?
