Empties #04



Ted Baker Origami Body Souffle
OMG this smells amazing.  It is fragranced with rose, sandalwood, raspberry and vanilla; what a combination!  The body souffle is a thick, rich cream that becomes light and easy to work with when rubbed into the skin.  It leaves my skin super soft and smelling delicious all day.  My best friend got me this in a gift set at Christmas and I'll definitely be buying it again for myself solely for the scent, AMAZING!!


Triliogy Gentle Facial Exfoliant
For a full review of this product, check out my blog post on it and some other Trilogy skincare here.  It's a great little scrub but I doubt I'd ever repurchase it as there's simply some better ones out there like the Dirty Works Blemish Buster 2 in 1 Scrub and Mask.


LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub
Great intense little scrub for your lips.  To use this, I warm a face towel under some hot water and press it between my lips to soften them.  Then I take a pea sized amount and apply it to the bottom lip and rub it in circular motions, followed by the same process for exfoliating my top lip, then I rub my lips together (yes, I am aware that this sounds filthy) and wipe the rest of the scrub off with the face towel.  This is an edible sugar scrub that is bubblegum flavoured and whilst it does taste nice, I wouldn't lick it off my lips as I don't fancy digesting the dead skin from my lips too!  Whilst this is a nice treat and does a very good job at making my lips soft and free from flaking, I wont be repurchasing this any time soon.  At almost £5, I think the price is a little too steep for a product that is used up very quickly.  I'd rather invest in a higher end product that will last me ages and ages.


Holland and Barrett Hyaluronic Acid with Vitamin C
Hyaluronic Acid is a substance which is found naturally in the skin, so taking it in the form of a supplement is great to give your skin a boost, particularly if you have any known allergies or sensitivities.  Taking these as an added extra to a healthy diet and thorough skincare routine can really help to give you a supple, firm and youthful skintone.  They also contain vitamin C which helps to support the formation of collagen in your skin.  I've really been into skincare over the last 6 months and I've been taking supplements like these alongside my skincare routine and I have to say they're really working, my skin is looking great!

LUSH BIG Shampoo
I'd wanted to try this shampoo for so long but unfortunately it just wasn't for me.  I hated the raw sea salt that makes up the bulk of the shampoo and whilst it did create some volume and shine in my hair it was not enough to endure the tiring task of trying to wash the sea salt out of my hair.  I have quite thin hair so I'd hate to think about how long it would take someone with thick hair to wash it out!


Have you tried any of these products?  What did you think of them?
