May Empties

It takes a lot for me to finish a product as I don't just use one product solely until end, normally I will switch and change depending on what I feel like using. So I have decided to set aside a bag to put my empties in each month as I go through them and share with you my thoughts, was it worth buying? did I hate it? etc.

First up is makeup items, I was so sad my NYX radiant finishing powder came to a brutal end, I used this for a long time but when it went it went quick! It started as six pastel shades which mixed together to create a perfect combo to set my foundation. I felt this really helped keep my makeup looking fresh and in place all day, especially my under eye. I would definetely buy this again if I could find any shops in the UK that sell it. I believe this was £9 when I purchased it first time. Another Nyx product was the HD concealor which again I really got on with and it had good creamy coverage, perfect light shade for me in Porcelain. I would buy this again but to be honest the Collection cosmetics concealor is so much easier to get hold of in UK and I prefer the finish so will just keep buying that.

A skincare product I finished was the Boots No7 protect and perfect advanced serum, I really got back into using this everyday underneath my moisturiser after the news coverage which states it is now clinically proven. This silky serum sinks into the skin with ease and with moisturiser over the top goes down to layers of the skin that helps to repair and make the skin look and feel younger. The serum is now proven that the more you use it the better and better results you can see. Google the advert to see proven results.

I love the Treacle moon Apple Pie bath and shower gel, smells divine just like all the treacle moon products. In our bathroom we have a massive line of all the different scents available so it has taken us a while to get a full one used up. I love to use them under the hot tap while running my bath as the scents fill the room adding to the atmosphere. These are available from Tesco and would definitely buy more again as they are lovely for the whole family.

I used up a Batitste mini tropical dry shampoo and large can of the Batiste blush scent dry shampoo, both fine would buy again as I like the scents and ease of dry shampoo. Only issue is it does tend to leave the white cast over my hair which I have to really work away with having darker hair. Any other recommendations let me know in the comments below.

I used up a few little fragrance samples after receiving some in my Birchbox and others in my Fragrance shop my discovery box (separate blogpost on this). My favourite were the two from Birchbox which are on the left in the photo above, the English Laundry and Catherine Malandrino fragrances (Birchbox exclusives.) Both super fresh and fruity, gorgeous scents I would love to have full sized versions of these two which are perfect for this time of the year.

Thanks for reading my empties this month, what have you used up and would recommend to try out?
Speak soon. Karen x JinksyBeauty x
