May Empties

It seems an absolute age since I sat down to write a blog post as I wrote a ton of scheduled posts prior to my exams. Finally my exams are over and I can focus attention in other places than my revision notes, primarily this blog. Over the last 6-8weeks I've accumulated a lot of empty products which I've saved to write a post on. I love reading 'empties' posts and it has been ages since I last wrote one so I thought now was the perfect time.

Nivea Visage Daily Essentials Oil Free Moisturising Day Cream - I love this moisturiser and will definitely be repurchasing this once I've used up some others which I have on the go. The smell is nice and not overly perfumed and it doesn't add to the oil on my face. The price is also very affordable which is an added bonus.

Original Source Almond and Black Cherry Winter Shower Gel - When I smelt this in Boots I absolutely loved the scent and thought it was perfect for the winter months however after a couple of uses I got sick of the sweetness so I was glad to finally use up this product and although this was a limited edition scent I don't think I would repurchase it.

Benefit The Porefessional - I love this primer and am using the full size version at the moment. However, I've found a number of cheaper alternatives which do the job equally well so somehow I don't think I will be repurchasing this product anytime soon. 

Tresemme Ultimate Hold Touchable Finish Hairspray - I bought this as an emergency product when I realised I'd forgotten to pack a hair spray however this is great. It kept my hair in place and didn't leave it with a crunchy feel. I would definitely purchase the full size next time. 

Caudalie Beauty Elixir - This product was stolen kindly given to me by my mother. I really wanted to love it because of all the hype it has had in the blog world since Victoria Beckham claimed it as her wonder product. Yes, it was refreshing when I used it as a facial toner but I really can't stand the smell so I won't be repurchasing it sadly. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - This is one of my essential products. I will always come back to it and even if I stray to an alternative it remains faithful. This really does a great job of keeping me shine free during the day and it is super, super affordable. 

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream - I received this product for free through a voucher system on their website and it really was a lovely product. It sank in easily into the skin and didn't leave my hands greasy which is an essential when I choose a hand cream. 

Soap & Glory Daily Smooth Body Butter - Another great smelling product from Soap & Glory and an absolute joy to use on the skin. Does a great job of moisturising the skin and I would definitely repurchase.

Hope you all have had a lovely Jubilee weekend!
