Because why not?

Blogmas 2015 Day 29 - Empty! | December 2015

29 December 2015
Final empties post for 2015, where did the time go!?!





Swisspers Cosmetic Squares - I really don't like these, they fall apart easily and frustrate me to no end.
Repurchase? Fuck no.

Glasshouse Rio De Janeiro Candle - Accidentally left this out of my video, was in the kitchen to be cleaned out. One of my all time faves, I was kind of squirrelling away the last of this since I had finished one a couple months ago but figured it was time to let go.
Repurchase? Absolutely!


Pure Supplement Lemon Blueberry Rejuvenating Overnight Mask - This was a lovely rich night cream that hydrated really well, as with all of the moisturisers in this photo I used it on both my face and body in the last couple of months so I could get them out and start 2016 fresh!
Repurchase? I'm not in need of any face creams at the moment but I would consider it in the future.

Abalone Crystal Double EX Cream - Another lovely rich night cream, didn't see any super duper amazing results with this though.
Repurchase? I would probably give this one a miss actually, I'd be more inclined to try something new than repurchase this particular one.

Primary Raw Soy Milk Facial Cream - Left my face super soft and hydrated, loved this.
Repurchase? I would definitely consider it in the future.

The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask (Review) - Awesome night cream, contains plant stem cells which promote youthful looking skin, I did find that my skin peaked after about week 4 of use and then never really improved beyond that though.
Repurchase? Yes, I would consider this in the future.



Ri Re Style Black Head Brush Cleanser - This has a silicone brush head that is supposed to help clean pores and remove black heads, it's an interesting concept but I can't guarantee that it works, I don't struggle with blackheads thankfully. I found it to be too time consuming to want to use it on a regular basis but the cleanser it's self was ok.
Repurchase? No.

Nutrimetics Make-Up Cleansing Tissues - Remove makeup well and fairly soft.
Repurchase? Not likely, since I only use them for swatching I'm more likely to just buy whatever is cheap at the store when I need them.

Tigi Bed Head Dumb Blonde Leave-In Conditioner - Loved this! Nice and nourishing, probably a little too heavy for natural blondes though.
Repurchase? Yes I would!

On: The Body Soap - Just soap, nothing to see here.
Repurchase? No.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturising Foaming Cleanser - Nice gentle cleanser that does a pretty good job, no complaints with performance here.
Repurchase? Went through it very quickly so only if it was on sale.

Nexcare Acne Patch (Review) - Not pictured, no idea how I forgot to take a picture of this.. Anyway, these are Holy Grail for me, they suck the gunk out of spot and help them to heal quicker.
Repurchase? Already have.

Stuff I'm Tossing



Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream - Scent has changed so I'm assuming it's gone bad.

Rimmel BB Cream 9 in 1 - Heavy, wet, kinda sticky and no coverage. Zero interest in trying to use this.

Miss Age Snail Anti-Wrinkle Serum - Broke my skin out.

Nutrimetics Beauty Veil Liquid Foundation - Another low coverage, sticky mess.

Rimmel Super Curler Mascara - Does nothing for me.

In 2016 I will be continuing with empties, the only difference will be that I will be adding a monetary value to each item used to see not just how much I'm using but how much it's all worth!

Items marked * were sent to me for trial and consideration, all other products were purchased by myself and I am in no way affiliated with any of the companies mentioned unless otherwise stated.
