Hi everyone,

I don’t often do empties posts for the simple reason that I always forget to keep the empty packaging and end up throwing it away. I have made an extra effort over the last few weeks though to remember and I have finally accumulated enough things for this post.

Nutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Face Scrub

I had actually forgotten I had bought this face scrub and found it buried at the back of my cupboard a few weeks ago. Pink grapefruit is one of my favourite scents so this was a winner with me from the get go for the smell alone, but it’s also great for providing gentle exfoliation. I have quite dry skin at the moment and it didn’t get rid of all the dry patches but it did help keep it at bay as I could use it daily. I wouldn’t say it reduced my spots at all however, but for a good, cheap face scrub it was OK.

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Hydrating Toner

Due to my skin being so dry recently, I have switched a lot of my products to ones which are more hydrating and this toner has been really good. I have already bought my next bottle as teamed with the Visible Difference Hydrating Cleanser, it has helped keep my skin from completely drying out. If anyone has any recommendations for products for dry skin though I would love to hear about them. My skin was always oily but this winter it has done a complete u-turn and become really dry and quite uncomfortable in certain areas.

Lancôme Hypnôse Drama mascara

This is one of my all-time favourite mascaras and have made my way through many a tube of it! I love how it makes my lashes look longer and fuller without any clumping so it’s one that I always go back to. It is a little pricey at £22.50 a pop which is why I don’t buy it every time I need a new mascara, but when I feel like treating myself it’s always my go to one.

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water

I’m so happy I bought two bottles of this but I’m going to be gutted when the second one runs out. It’s about time a Sephora was opened here in the UK! This cleansing water removes makeup easily and gently to leave skin feeling fresh and clean. I love the pump top as well so I might even keep the empty bottle and fill it with a different micellar water!

Benefit Gimme Brow

I am going through these like there’s no tomorrow at the moment which isn’t good when they are £18.50 each. I just love how quick and easy they are to use and the natural look they give my brows. The darker option is also the perfect shade for me at the minute and when I use anything different I just don’t feel that it gives the same look.

Have you tried any of these products? Which products do you always repurchase?

Thanks for reading,

  1. I have the same problem, my skin has gone dry in certain patches too. I've started using the No7 Essential Moisture day and night cream which is working really well :)
    I really like the sound of the Sephora cleansing water with the pump, I think they ship to the UK online but guessing the postage would be alot! x

    1. I really like the No.7 range, I have been using their Early Defence creams and they are a lot more hydrating than the Clarins one I had previously been using. The postage is what puts me off ordering from Sephora online as well and also I'm not sure how long if would take to come 😞 x

  2. I really need to get to get that mascara, so many love it and I'm so desperate to try hoping it would work on my pathetic lashes. I love, love, LOVE Sephora micellar water and it was all I ever used in the past but now I have moved to Garnier micellar water which is absolutely lovely! Unfortunately Gimme Brow didn't work for me, I tried my best to love it but it made my sparse brow look weird. :-(

    1. I would definitely recommend the mascara and it's one of my all time faves. I love that it gives length and volume rather than just concentrating on one :) I'm so gutted that I can't get the Sephora cleansing water here in the UK but I have tried the Garnier one and do quite like it so I guess I'll have to make do! X

  3. We need to try the gimme brown, but the prize tag is a bit off putting. We have been loving Rimmel's Brow that way gel. It's pretty good

    1. Ooh I'll have to try that one, I could do with a cheaper option as the Gimme Brow is really expensive! x

  4. The Lancome mascara sounds like a really great product, thanks for sharing!


    1. It is really good and although it's a bit more expensive it's definitely worth it :) x
