This Empties Post is quite a hefty one, so I'm going to tackle it a little differently!
Firstly naming the three products I enjoyed using the most ...
No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser. A soothing hot cloth cleanser, gentle enough to use to remove stubborn eye make up. Which leaves the skin feeling refreshed and soft! Doesn't irritate or dry out the skin, I'd repurchase :)
Caudalie Beauty Elixir. I used this as a hydrating toner after my original toner to put moister back into the skin and calm any stresses from the day. Although I'm unsure of a visible difference I loved using this before bed for its pure calming aspect and the fact I love the smell! I repurchase as a luxury item so maybe birthday list appropriate as its a little pricey.
The Body Shop Honey & Oat 3 in 1 scrub mask. I've raved about this on numerous occasions, but I love this mask. It smells amazing! Cleanses and exfoliates the skin whilst still leaving it hydrated! It tingles slightly so you can feel its working but in a really pleasant way! :) I'd repurchase for sure!
For hair I finished up Head and Shoulders smooth & silky shampoo for dry or damaged hair! This stuff really is the best at keeping any pesky flakes at bay I like using it every other time I wash my hair just to keep my scalp happy! :)
Next the Loreal Ever Pure Reinforcing Intense Mask - with botanical oils rosemary and mint. This mask is lightweight enough so it doesn't weigh down the hair but still really hydrating! A good all rounder for brittle and dry hair!
For body I finished up two Soap & Glory body scrubs. Sugar Crush and Scrub 'em and leave 'em. Both equally amazing. Sugar Crush has brown sugar, sweet lime, almond oil and macadamia grains. It smells citrusy but very sweet. Whilst Scrub 'em and leave 'em contains babassu oil seat salt, jojoba and mandarin oils its very fresh yet quite a strong scent that's more musky! Both of these I'd use again and they left my skin so soft and hydrated!
Palmers Cocoa Butter. An all round firm favourite! It's hydrating yet sinks in quickly. Smells like chocolate and helps to reduce any marks or scars. This must be my eighth bottle of this, I always come back to it!
For the face I finished up the Botanics Soothing Eye Makeup Remover. All Bright! I know a lot of people don't like this as it is an oil based remover but I think it's one of the best eye make up removers. It doesn't sting my eyes and removes every last trace of make up.
Then Elizabeth Arden's Gentle Hydrating Cream and Cleanser. Both really lovely products for dry skin types. The cleanser contains oats to soften the skin, I used this as my morning cleanser for the shower and it would prep my skin perfectly. The moisturiser is heavy but leaves no residue on the skin and sinks in with in seconds.
Lastly two make up items.
Urban Decay's all nighter setting spray. I have repurchased a new one of these all ready as on nights out or in hot weather this keeps my make up in tact perfectly.
And lastly another product I've already purchased Benefits Boiing concealer in 02. This full coverage concealer hides imperfections brilliantly without looking too caked on the skin. With green tea oil it helps to treat blemishes whilst masking them! Another firm favourite!
Well there we have it, a very large empties post for you all! :)
Have you tried any of the products I've used up? What are your favourites? Xx

Hi everyone :) hope you're all well! I thought that today I'd share a few products that I've picked up on recent shopping trips that I've really been loving!
Benefits Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer! Ok I think I have actually found a product I cannot live without. This stuff if awesome! It's hydrating so it doesn't dry out my skin but it really does keep my makeup in place all day long. I recently went to see Olly Murs in concert and was catching trains and rushing around all over the place, it was such a warm day that on checking my makeup I expected to have none left but I was pleasantly surprised! My make up looked exactly as It did when I'd left the house, all thanks to a quick application of this bad boy. The only down side is on application because of its texture I find it easier to use my fingers not my trusty real techniques expert face brush. But that can be overlooked as once applied it dries beautifully and can no longer be felt! :)
Dior's BB eye Creme in 01 Luminous Beige. What will they think of next hey! But honestly this product is so light weight under the eyes, it doesn't crease on me and gives just the right amount of coverage to hide pesky darkness. It's illuminating properties are so pretty that you instantly look more awake. And with SPF 20 pa ++ you are getting high quality protection for your peepers :)
Max's lipstick in Crosswires, I am a little obsessed with this lipstick! It's so beautiful and perfect for this time of year. It's a deep coral/red tone which is quite muted. As I normally go for quite bright lipsticks this has been a welcomed change. I absolutely love the formula it's a cremesheen finish so the colour is opaque but feels really hydrating! I have found that compliments most outfits and make up looks but looks particularly flattering with a bronze eye.
Lastly is another product from Dior the Diorshow brow styler in 001 universal brown. This fine brow liner is perfect for a natural looking brow. As I have so many sparse areas through my brows this helps to fill them in without them looking too drawn on. The colour, although my brows are very dark balances out perfectly and looks really natural. The only down side is I can see myself getting through this quite quickly but I'll keep you posted on its lasting ability.
Have you tried any of the products I've mentioned, would you like to?
