Empties #11

Two empties posts in one week?! What is WhatLauraLoves coming to?!  Well, like I said earlier in the week, I have A LOT of empty products in my stash right now that are ready to go the journey.  So here I am with another Empties review.

Good Things Fresh Start Creamy CleanserAvailable from Boots, Sainsburys and Superdrug

Good Things are one of my favourite high street brands.  They create gentle products that are easy to use and effective.  I’ve been using their Fresh Start Creamy Cleanser with my Riosonicleanse and I have seen some great results with it.  My skin is feeling super fresh, clean, clear and healthy.  I’d really recommend it.  For a full review, check out this post here.

Dirty Works Sole Sister Foot ScrubAvailable from Sainsburys

Dirty Works are another of my favourite high street skincare brands that I’ve been using for the last year.  Sole Sister is a minty fresh foot scrub that is really gritty and perfect for keeping your feet flip flop ready.  I have reviewed it fully here but would definitely repurchase it.  If you have really hard skin on your feet like I do, then you would need to use this alongside a foot file but it is a great accompaniment to a good pedicure routine.

Manuka Doctor Api Nourish Foot & Heel CreamAvailable from Holland and Barrett

After exfoliating my feet, I always like to apply a thick foot cream.  This one from the Manuka Doctor Api Nourish range is super indulgent, smells very minty and is very moisturising due to the avocado oil and shea butter that it contains.  For a full review, check out my post here.

Clarins Water Purify One Step Cleanser– Available from Clarins and Boots

This is one of my favourite cleansers.  It is simple, no fuss and rinse free.  I enjoy using this particularly when I am tired or travelling as it removes all of my make up with ease, including stubborn waterproof eye liner and eyelash glue, it is so easy to use.  The only thing I don’t like about it is that it isn’t very economical.  I go through bottles of this like it is going out of fashion!

Clearasil Blackhead Clearing PadsAvailable from Home Bargains

I have used these Blackhead Clearing Pads from Clearasil for years.  They’re great at clearing my skin and keep it dirt free so they really do work.  I’ve done a full review here and I would definitely repurchase them.

Mudd Sea MaskAvailable from Boots

Another product which is great at removing dirt and impurities is this hydrating sea clay mask from Mudd.  My skin looks lovely and clear after using this and the packaging is great as it is very travel friendly and resealable.  I’ve done a full review here and would definitely repurchase it.

Ojon Volumising 2 minu Hair MaskAvailable from Boots

I first reviewed this hair mask in my Hair Mask Showdown post.  If you read the post, you’ll know that I certainly wont be repurchasing this over priced product.  Whilst it is ok at nourishing the hair, it does very little by way of providing volume.  There are far better masks out there to nourish my hair so this will be the first and last time I purchase this I’m afraid!

MAC Bronzing Powder in Matte BronzeAvailable from Debenhams and House of Fraser

I’ve been buying this matte bronzer to use as my contour powder for the last year now and I love using it.  It is a great colour, not too muddy and not too orange and it is completely shimmer free.  I do find that I hit pan on this incredibly quickly so for the time being, I am switching back to my Hoola by Benefit to see if that lasts any longer, if not, I’ll be repurchasing this MAC one then.  A full review is on this post.

Impulse Body Spray MiniAvailable from Boots and Superdrug

The Impulse minis are great for keeping in my clutch bag for a quick freshen up on an evening out.  Romantic Spark is a gorgeous floral scent that I have really enjoyed wearing.  It is long lasting too which is always a good thing!

Palmers Cocoa Butter FormulaAvailable from Boots and Superdrug

Palmers Cocoa Butter has to be one of the most amazing body creams ever.  It smells and feels luxurious and indulgent when being applied and it is super moisturising yet it is very inexpensive and easy to get a hold of, what is not to love?!

Nivea After Sun Tan ProlongerAvailable from Boots

I’m not sure if this is even on the shelves any more as I’ve had it for that long.  It is a great after sun with a hint of false tan that is cooling on the skin whilst providing a shot of colour.  I only had a little bit of this product left so I used it when I went away for a week of winter sun.  There are lots of products like this available now and I’ll definitely be trying some out when I next go away.  I’ve heard the Clarins one is great but if any of you have tried any others that you can recommend to me (or warn me away from) then do let me know!

Now leave me to wallow in the satisfaction of using up some of my stash…!

      I know what you mean Jordan! The only body butter I've found to be as effective, if not better, is the Ultra Rich Body Butter from Good Things!Laura xxx
