June Empties

June has flown by and here are my empties from the month. Not all that exciting so I will keep the blogpost slightly shorter and hopefully sweet! We made a trip to Cath Kidson while on holiday and I loved the bag so much I made it my official empties bag.

First up hairsprays:
Schwarzkopf got2b glued hairspray - I'm a massive fan of the got2b range from Schwarzkopf, if you follow my Instagram or Twitter you will have seen my massively big haul I did the other day. This glued hairspray is super fab for my husband and sons hair, helps their hair stay in place. I find I only need to spray the tiniest bit to get the results they need! On myself I only use it when my style is complete just to hold everything in place, I tend not to spray over much or it can dry my hair out.
Loreal Elnett Cheryl style - This has got to be one of my favourite brands for hairsprays for myself. As like they advertise it can be brushed out easily, which is a major plus point for me. With naturally curly hair if I use a hair spray that makes my hair to hard it becomes extremely damaging on my hair to brush out. The Elnett range I have found to be the best to keep my hair in better condition. The only thing I'm not keen on with this is the smell!
Tresemme Perfectly undone - now this unfortunately didn't work for me personally. I'm someone who need helps from a styling product to assist shape, volume and calm my frizz or stray hairs. I found this to be like spraying air on my hair, it didn't achieve anything for me at all. Save your money on that one.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ - super sweet little sample that I tried out. This size only allowed me to squeeze two uses out of this but I have heard great things from friends about it. It's paraben free which is a massive plus point, it's also non-comedogenic which means it won't blog pores. Helping to target any clogged pores, blemishes and marks on the skin. This range is said to be perfect for oily sensitive skin and I have been really enjoying using my Serozinc toner from La Roche Posay so wanted to try more from the range. I have now brought from Boots the La Roche Posay three step regime anti blemish system and an extra duo+. I will be reporting back on how they are working out for me and my oily skin. 
Pixi glow tonic - love how cute my little Pixi sample was from Latest in Beauty summer glamour box, I just wish it had been slightly bigger so I could have tried it out for a little longer. It's an exfoliating toner with 5% glycolic, aloe vera and ginseng which helps the remove dead skin cells, tone, firm and tighten the skin. It's hypoallergenic which is great for sensitive skin, and the smell isn't offensive at all. Would love to try a bigger version.

Avene Cleanance cleansing water - I purchased this because I do love a cleansing water for quickness and also it's aimed at oily skin types. I do love the turquoise packaging also! Haha. This lasted soooo long, and I did enjoy using it but I think because it lasted so long my skin ended up getting used to it so wasn't as effective as when I first started using it. This has a lovely clean fresh scent to it which I love. I'm still searching for a cleansing water that's good for my oily skin and great at taking mascara off.

Simple cleansing facial wipes - I used simple years ago and for some reason it didn't suit me and brought me out in little rashes and break outs. Years down the line after two kids and everyone seeming to rave about simple I thought I would give it another go. These cleansing wipes are so popular and purchased constantly at my work (Boots). I tried them out and have to say I really got on with them! They contain vitamins to help the skin not feel stripped or raw, some wipes can be harsh on the skin but found these to work perfect. These cleansing wipes have no alcohol or oil which also helps with the feel of the skin after use. I would definitely purchase these again.
Q Balance body spray - I have to admit I'm not a huge body spray person, I don't try out loads of different ones. But this one was great, held off the sweats during heavy lifting and 'mild' exercise and has an alright smell. Thumbs up from me.

That completes my June Empties which ended up not being too short, I apologise. Let me know your best empties, what you would recommend to purchase? June favourites will be coming very soon so keep an eye out. Thanks so much for reading. Karen x JinksyBeauty x
