Product Empties: July – August

Hey Internet Friends,

Everyone loves a good empties post, well I do anyway! So I wanted to share with you my empties form the past couple of months, Ive been saving them up ready for this post, so shall we get started?

It takes me a while to get together any empties unless Im travelling, simply because I like to use so many different products. Also, Im slightly crazy and when something starts to really run out and I love it I tend to save the last bit for a special occasion. I know I know. Weird.

So lets kick this off…
Rub Rub Rub from Lush
I had this product little over two weeks and I enjoyed every second of it, its a less abrasive scrub compared to the usual body shop ones I use and is a lot thiner in consistency but it packs such a punch! It made my skin look instantly glowing, soft and exfoliated.
This has such a fresh scent and really does make your skin feel invigorated just from the smell.

Verdict – Would repurchase but I do feel like you don’t get a lot of use from the product for your money, I feel like this should have lasted a lot longer but the smell and results really make up for it. 

No7 Stay Perfect Primer. 
Ive talked about this primer and the next product in more detail before, if you like you can real that post HERE.
As I mentioned in this post, you do need to use a lot of this product for a decent result in terms of minimising poor and smoothing out imperfections and that can leave your face feeling a little heavy but for an evening look it gives absolutely amazing results!

Verdict – Probably wouldn’t repurchase if I’m being completely honest, I feel there are a lot better primers in this price range.

Pore sessional by Benefit.
I honestly cant find a single flaw with this primer, its smooth, good coverage and significantly reduces pores but I do feel that its ridiculously expensive for what it is.
Especially when you consider primers like the body shop ultra blur that is around half the price?

Verdict – Would repurchase if it was on offer or I had a particularly nice payday. 

Seaweed Pore Cleansing Facial Exfoliator by The Body Shop. 
Technically this is my fiances, but whats mine is yours dear!
I like using this product if Im in a rush and cant be bothered with a full face mask or my usual skincare routine, its super easy, smells amazing and makes my skin look absolutely flawless. It really does cleanse pores.

Verdict – If it makes your fiancé actually ask to go to The Body Shop then it must be good. My heart practically sang!

Wake Me Up Concealer by Rimmel
I love this concealer for hiding blemishes and redness, but I do find it a little too slippery for under the eyes, I find it cakes throughout the day under the eyes and starts to look a bit messy.
I hate that this concealer has ran out because it is honestly one of the best I have tried for a while, it lasted me just over two months using it everyday.

Verdict – A million % repurchase, for the price it is absolutely brilliant. 

No 7 Beautifully matte foundation. 
Sighhhh, I have such a love hate relationship with this product. It looks absolutely fantastic when you apply it and it blends absolutely brilliantly. The coverage is fantastic and makes my skin looked photoshopped!
The only problem is, after about 5 hours it goes horrendously cake and flakes like the worst dandruff you’ve ever seen.

Verdict – Im sorry No7 I do love the initial results of this product but I just don’t think I’ll repurchase, at least not for a while. 

Hope you enjoyed this little post about empties, if you have any great empties posts for me please link them in the comments? I love reading them!

Also, have you tried any of these products? What do you think?

Speak Soon,

    Great empties post! I have only tried the Wake Me Up Concealer which works pretty well. I haven’t tried anything No 7 yet but another blogger told me to try their matte foundation. Thanks for sharing your empties! 🙂 xo
