August Empties

These are the products that I've used up this month...

Origins Spot Remover Pads
These have been amazing for combating my spotty skin! I use them every night after cleansing my face, in place of toner, and then put my moisturiser on as normal. In the morning my blemishes are always reduced and my skin is much clearer. Full review here.
Repurchase: Absolutely 100% yes!

Miss Dior Eau De Parfum
I love this perfume. I would describe it as elegant but girly. It's quite a sweet smell that is heavy but not overly so. It lasts ages on my skin as well, so justifies the hefty price tag in my opinion. Full review here.
Repurchase: Yes

Benefit POREfessional
This primer works a treat on my oily skin. I use it to provide a smooth base for my makeup and to ensure that it stays on all day. For these two purposes it works brilliantly. I do not use it to reduce the size of my pores so I can't really comment on how it works for that, but I would definitely recommend it to anyone that has combination or oily skin for keeping their foundation or powder in place and stopping their face from being too shiny or oily. Full review here.
Repurchase: Yes, definitely.

Benefit They're Real!
I've bought this mascara time and time again. I try other mascaras in between but nothing matches up to Benefit They're Real! in my opinion. It makes my lashes look thicker, longer and curled. It's definitely my favourite mascara ever! Full review here
Repurchase: Yes, definitely.

Mark Hill Heat Defence Spray
I've had it drummed into me how important it is to use heat defence spray before blow drying or straightening my hair so I always use it now. I was attracted by the funky packaging of this one and so decided to give it a go. Sadly I was disappointed. It made my hair noticeably greasier when I used it, to the point where I was a bit worried that people would think that I hadn't washed it! It might work better on people that have drier hair than I do, but for me, who has slightly oily hair/roots anyway, it did not work well.
Repurchase: No.

What do you think of these products?

  1. I always use the GHD heat defense spray, it smells amazing and you can't even tell its there when youve straightened it unlike some products that leave a horrible residue! xx

  2. Miss Dior is one of my favourite perfumes. I love it!

  3. PoreProfessional is great isn't it! I've been using that too - it works wonders.


  4. I have that perfume and it's really nice!
