It has been a while since our last empties post. So, I thought it was time to do another one. I have accumulated a bunch of products that I have used up, since the last post. So, here they are…
The first is the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser. I actually enjoyed this product a lot, I found it really effective during the winter months. As the cleanser is on the thicker and richer side, so it didn’t leave my skin feeling super dry. Although, many moisturising cleanser that I have tried, tend to leave my skin feeling nourished but not superclean, I found this to completely different. The product really leaves skin feeling squeaky clean, but not overly drying. Although, I will say this didn’t help with taming breakout, but I did love that is foam up, if you massaged it into your face.
I also used up a moisturiser, specifically the Aloe Fresh moisturiser by The Face Shop, and I personally loved using, which I have also mention in a couple of posts. So, I won’t babble on to much about it. It has taken me a long time to finish, but after finishing it, I ended up feeling sad, as I really enjoyed using it. It absorbed into my skin really quickly, while leaving it super soft and nourished, and this made it a lot easier to apply my concealer on a rushed day.
The next is The Yves Rocher exfoliater. It definitely wasn’t my favourite exfoliator, as I felt like after a while it didn’t exfoliate my skin as much as I wanted it to. So, it felt more like a shower gel than a exfoliater. However, I did like the scent of it. It had quite the summer berry scent to it.
I also ended up finishing a toner – specifically the Joseristine Acne Skin Tonic, which is quite a rare thing for me. I found that this toner was amazing for minimizing pores and helping to reduce spots, when I was breaking out. Although, I would say that it was quite drying, but I did expect it to be, as one of the ingredients was tea tree. I also found that a small amount went a long way and that was one of the reason why it took me quite long to finish it. I loved how this product was super inexpensive, but gave amazing results.
Foodie’s Empties : As for the Cliv collagen resurgence laser ampoule, having previously finished a serum I decided to try out the Cliv range of ampoule. The product absorbs into the skin quite quickly as it has a water like consistency and because of this consistency, you only really need to apply very little for it to cover your entire face and neck. Although the product is meant to help firm your skin, I didn’t see much of a significant change in the firmness but my skin did feel a lot more supple the day after. Would definitely recommend using this before bed as you will see the instant suppleness in your skin once you wake up.
Herbal essence, I have always loved the herbal essences’s range as well as their advertisements with girls that had beautifully shiny hair. However, I found that I couldn’t use their hair products daily because of how oily my hair would get. I got a mini herbal essence white tea and mint shampoo as a birthday gift and have been using it almost daily and love how voluminous it leaves my hair as well as how light and bubbly the formula is. Would highly recommend it for girls who have slightly oily hair.
AHC has been one of my go to companies at the moment after trying numerous of their products. I tried their collagen Ampoule set last winter and took a break from it to try some new products however, I have found myself going back and trying the remainning ampoules to add some extra moisture back into my skin. Although autumn comes with cooler nights it also means that the air is a lot drier which leaves my skin needing extra hydration. I use the ampoules to top up my skin with instant hydration. A useful tip would be to definitely wait about 10-20 seconds before applying other skincare products, because of it’s thick and rich texture it does take a little longer for the skin to absorb.
