This Empty Products post will be quite short in comparison to previous ones I’ve done but as I’ve been away from Norway, I didn’t have my beauty garbage box with me and wasn’t sure how many items I could collect. However, I’m trying to be a good blogger and wanted to share with you my experience with the following products.
I’ve used up so many body washes but I remembered to keep only two bottles. I’ve mentioned how much I liked Le Petit Marseillais White Peach & Nectarine body wash and I went through 2 or 3 bottles of it this summer but their Orange Blossom Shower Gel is another one that I liked. Their shower gels have natural ingredients and feel quite moisturising but at the same time have light texture. I simply love the way they smell because their scents are not too overpowering or sweet.
The Pomegranate Nectar Bath & Shower Gel from L’Angelica was nice, too. I didn’t experience a major difference in my shower routine with it but again, didn’t feel heavy on the skin and had a nice light scent to it.
Another body product is the limited edition Cabana Dream Body Lotion from Balea and I’m really missing this one because it smelled of peaches and maracuja. It’s summer in a tube and if you still don’t know, I have a thing for peach-scented body products. The moisturising properties weren’t bad, either, although the texture was quite milky and light. It was a really nice summer body lotion.
Another Balea product that I’ve used up is the Lemon Grass & Mint Shampoo which I quite enjoyed. It made my hair fresh and shiny, it didn’t weigh it down because it’s a clear gel that feels very light.
My LUSH New Charity Pot is empty again and I’m going to fill it in soon but you can read more about this product here.
I already have another backup of my beloved Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream (review here), it’s the only base product I’ve been using for months on my face. I’m curious about different foundations and tinted moisturisers but I seem to always reach for this one as it’s quite light but gives a good amount of coverage without being heavy and cakey. The second and last make-up product is the GOSH Defining Clear Brow Gel that I’ve mentioned here. I like this brow gel because it doesn’t make my brows crispy and hard. At the moment, I’m having many brow gels to use up or try but in future, I will definitely re-purchase this one.
As I’ve mentioned many times, I’m not the biggest face wipes fan. However, I always carry a pack of face wipes when I travel because they remove make-up quite quickly. I always, always, always cleanse my skin after using face wipes because all we do with face wipes is moving around the dirt on our faces. The last face wipes that I’ve used up are from Comodynes and they are the Micellar Cleanser Sensitive Skin Face & Eyes wipes. It was a random purchase because back then, the rest of the wipes at the drugstore were not suggested to be used on eyes and these were the only ones. I actually liked them a lot because they were very gentle, yet they effectively removed even more stubborn mascara.
I’ve used up two Schaebens face masks. The first one is the most popular they have and it’s the Dead Sea Mud Mask and I love how purifying it is but at the same time quite soothing because of the Aloe Vera and Camomile in it. The Cleansing Mask seemed a bit unusual to me because it’s almost like a cream but gives a slight exfoliation, as well and also removes the impurities. I was really happy with these masks but the sachets and the quantity is a bit strange as it’s too much for 1-2 applications but not quite enough for more and it’s difficult to store it.
Several months ago, I was sent three miniatures of Indie Lee‘s Brightening Cleanser*, COQ – 10 Toner* and Squalane Facial Oil*. I liked all the three but I have to say that my favourite was the facial oil and if I didn’t have so many oils at the moment, I would have already purchased the full size. It doesn’t break me out, it hydrates and makes the dry patches appearing sometimes, go away and nourishes the whole face without making my T-zone more oily.
Another mini is from Eucerin and you probably know by now how much I like their DermoPURIFYER range. I used the Adjunctive Hydrating Care in the summer because it has SPF 30 and it’s not heavy or greasy.
The last product is the Balea Water Spray for Face and Body which didn’t change my life and it’s nothing more than a water mist but it was really refreshing to use in the hot summer days…
Now I really miss summer, it was such a great one!
