Empty Products & Mini Reviews

So this post is a little different and is a run-down and review of my recent batch of empty products. If there is a product that I have done a full review on I will link to that and if there are products that I haven't done a full review of I will just write a couple of sentences and end with if I would re-purchase. so lets get into this mammoth task! 

Face Wash:

2x Simple Spotless Skin Triple action Face Wash: LOVE this, Full review Here
Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts Wash and Mask: Full review Here
St. Ives Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub: Full review Here

Hair Care:

Batiste Dry Shampoo: 1x Oriental 1x Tropical: Love the Batiste range leaves hair feeling great and prolongs length between washes while hair still looks clean. Can also be used to add texture and a little bit of volume. Would highly recommend. Prefer Tropical scent and have already re-purchased.
Charles Worthington Salon At Home Moisture Seal Shampoo and Conditioner: Full Review Here
Charles Worthington Salon At Home Strength and Repair Longer and Stronger Hair Masque: Full Review Here
John Frieda Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery Intensive Masque: Loved using this left my hair looking smooth, sleek and healthy. Smelt amazing and believe it helped reduce the damage and breakage of my hair. Would repurchase.

Skin/Body Care:

2x Liz Earl Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser: LOVE this: Full Review Here.
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water: Full Review Here.
Olay TotalEffects Eye Transforming Cream: Full Review Here.
Dr. Nick Lowe Oil Control Day Cream: LOVE this: Full Review Here and Here.
Vaseline Essential Moisture Hand Cream: Great handbag size, nice moisturising cream, slightly odd smell and this product could sink into the skin slightly quicker. Probably won’t re-purchase for quality of product but would for convenience. 
2x Sure Linen Dry Ultra Dry Anti-Perspirant: Love this works well, smells great, protects with day-day activity but not during higher intensity exercise. Would recommend and have already repurchased. 
Impulse True Love Body Fragrance: Handy handbag size and great to carry around - particularly for work. Smells fresh and not overpowering. Would re-purchase, currently have different scent from the Impulse brand. 
The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel Travel Size: Great smelling and lathers nice leaving fresh clean skin. Personally prefer other scents from the Body shop but would purchase full size shower gels in those scents. 
6x Boots Essentials Refreshing Cucumber Cleansing Wipes, these are a great everyday wipe take off make-up nicely, apart from waterproof, smell great and don't leave a residue on your face. Have currently repurchased.
Bic 3 Blade Sensitive razors: Great disposable razors, give a close shave and have a moisturising Aloe and Vitamin E strip. Would repurchase and currently have. 


2x Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Make-Up Remover: Love this: Full review Here.
Boots Botanics Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover: Full review Here.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation: Enjoyed using this foundation gave a light natural looking coverage and made my skin look glowy, Didn't last all day with some caking in higher heat. Would re-purchase for colder months. 
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation: Nice foundation however I felt it left me looking oily rather than dewy and radiant. some caking in higher heat I purchased a shade too dark so would re-purchase in correct shade to test again. 
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer: Thick covering concealer lasts all day and covers up dark circles and blemishes well. Would repurchase. 
Maybelline Instant Anti-Age Eraser Eye: Loved this, brightened my complexion and gave me really healthy looking skin. Would love to repurchase but can not find my shade in any stores. 
L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Waterproof: Great at lengthening and some volumisation. No fall out and did not irritate my eyes. Would repurchase.    
Maybelline The colossal Go Extreme! Volum’ Waterproof: Great Mascara, lots of volume and length made my eyes look great, Very little fallout, however did irritate my eyes slightly, Would repurchase for the effect. 
Rimmel ScandalEyes Precision Micro Eyeliner Waterproof: Did not like this Liner, Difficult to use smudges and was not entirely waterproof, Would not repurchase. 

L’Oreal Super Liner So Couture: Loved this eyeliner, Soft easy to use tip and waterproof product that stayed on the lids all day. Would 100% Re-purchase however can not find in stores currently. 

So that is all of my empties and thoughts on each of them. I hope you enjoyed this post and it helped in someway! Don't forget you can follow this blog on or friend connect and you can subscribe to my YouTube channel too! :)

Benefit They’re Real Mascara | Review

I finally caved and jumped on the band wagon (2 years late) and picked up this mascara about a month ago to see what the hype has been all abut and have been using it since. I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings with you; first off OMyyyyyGEEE £19.50!!!! 19.5 of my hardest earned pounds is the most I have and probably will ever spend on mascara! despite that and trying to not dwell on how much it cost me or allowing it to influence my opinion on the product too much here are my views!  
First off Benefits they’re real mascara has been the UK’s number 1 selling mascara for the past 2 years so has lots to live up to! 

I find when I first apply this to may lashes they look great, lovely and long, dramatic and they really frame my eyes and add lots to my finished makeup look! - Sounds great you say hold on just a little - give it an hour or so and my lashes just look flat and nothing like they did directly post application, it’s as if the product is weighing them down.

No Mascara
One Coat Mascara

2 Coats Mascara

They’re real mascara is water-resistant, not waterproof and as you all know this is a big deal for me and my watery eye issues, so I have found on occasions - particularly those that have involved moistness (excuse the use of that word) of the eyes, that the product budges pretty easily leaving black debris and smudging all around my eyes, and should I ever cry it comes off completely leaving a beautiful panda eyed Emma!! 

My final gripe with this mascara is that I do not find it volumising at all and I personally love the look of big volumous lashes so much more over length! 

Overall I have not been impressed with the they’re real mascara but can more than see why some people love it! I’m sure that if you don't have watery eyes and love that long lash look over the volume look you would be blown away by this mascara! I however probably won’t be repurchasing this product but do look forward to trying the new roller lash mascara!
