Empties



This month was one of those months where EVERYTHING seemed to run out! Not ideal when all my money is going on Christmas shopping! Oh well, at least I have lots to talk about for this post...

Armani Micro-Fil Loose Powder in Porcelain
This is my second pot of this powder and I've already moved swiftly on to my third. It sets my makeup really well and leaves a gorgeous, translucent, subtle glow to my face. The quality is obvious when using it and I can't imagine ever using any other loose powder now, it's well worth the high price tag in my opinion.
Repurchase? Yes.

Nars Laguna Bronzer
This is a holy grail product for me. It adds a lovely, subtle tan to my face, making it look much nicer and healthier! Love, love, love it!!
Repurchase? Yes.

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara
This has impressed me more and more as time has gone on. It really makes my lashes look thicker, bolder and more curled. Benefit's They're Real! may have a rival now!
Repurchase? Yes.

Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream 
This fake tan is lovely. It contains cocoa butter, so gets a big plus for smelling nice before I've even put it on, and is very moisturising- great on my legs where my skin is dry due to shaving. As with all the Clarins fake tans I've tried, it is a very natural colour and produces no streaks (I always apply it with a mitt to make sure though). I would highly recommend Clarins fake tans to everyone, they are the best fake tans on the market in my opinion.
Repurchase? Yes. 

Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay Cologne
This smells so fruity and fresh. I have the matching candle too- I absolutely adore it! The perfume is quite light so it's great to wear as an everyday scent. It's quite refreshing and I always receive compliments when I'm wearing it.
Repurchase? Yes.

Molton Brown Shower Gel in Templetree
I received this shower gel in the Selfridges Beauty Box which I purchased in the summer, and only got around to using it last month. I must admit I usually use quite cheap shower gels and so the texture and consistency of this took me by surprise. It's much thicker than cheaper shower gels and the smell stays on your skin for ages after you have washed it off and got out of the shower; it's almost like an extra perfume. I was so impressed with this, it really is worth the money and I would love to get a full size bottle now. The only thing I wasn't too keen on was the smell of this one (it's the blue one)- it smelt like Jean Paul Gaultier perfume- you know that almost sickly sweet smell? That kind of smell will obviously be popular with other people (especially if you like Jean Paul Gaultier) but it doesn't suit me, so I would prefer to have a more fruity scent next time.
Repurchase? Not this scent but definitely another Molton Brown shower gel.

Vaseline Spray and Go
This was brilliant to have during the summer months as it was refreshing and make moisturising my body easy and quick. However, it's too cold to be spraying yourself in liquid now (goosebumps galore I tell you!), and it's not moisturising enough now that my skin is becoming drier from the cold. Definitely a summer product for me.
Repurchase? Not right now but I may do next summer. 

Soap and Glory Hand Food
This hand cream has lasted me absolutely ages. It smells amazing, and is very moisturising. It doesn't sting or irritate my hands at all (something I was concerned about it doing before I tried it because it is so scented). It isn't greasy either- I'm missing it already!
Repurchase? Yes. 

What do you think about any of these products?

  1. I'm a big fan of Molton Brown and am currently working my through Blissful Templetree. I also love S&G hand creams, they're so good and as you say not greasy.
