Recent Empties

Recent Empties

I know everyone is saying this but I cannot believe we are now in January 2013 - what?! I think the last year has definitely been the fastest year in my entire life!
Anyway, here are some of my recent empties. I missed November Empties so thought I would just pop on any photographs of empties I had taken since then. 

I am not sure if any of you find these posts very interesting as the random empties I use up are pretty regular and always very similar - but I really enjoy writing about products I have used up. 
The photo quality is awful I will pre-warn you and I apologize in advance, there is a complete mix of random things this month!

Superdrug Eyebrow Shapers
I used all of these up a few weeks ago, I need to go back to Superdrug and get some more! I really do like these as they are an alternative way of shaping your eye brows if you haven't got the time to go to a beauty salon or the money. I have been using these every two or three weeks or so for a good few months now. They aren't the best in the world, and off course you have to be careful you don't rip your eyebrows off in the process of using these, but I have got on quite well with them and am definitely repurchasing them.

Garnier Fructis Frizz Tamer Conditoner Sleek & Shine
Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair Oil Nutritive Conditioner
Nothing particularly amazing about these two conditioners, but I preferred the Garnier conditioner as it seemed to calm down my hair post wash. I would probably pick them up again in the future but they were nothing extraordinary. 

Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm
Lip balms are the one product I hoard adore that I don't think I have ever actually used up one tube of! I have been using this lip balm every day in the morning and night for a few months, it is very moisturising on the lips and is a great price too. I would buy this again as it it works and is very affordable.

Soap and Glory Hand Maid Hand Sanitizing Gel
I recently used all of my hand-sanitizer gel up by Soap and Glory. It is a great product which smells nice, but nothing to write home about. There is not a lot I can say about hand gel is there really! I probably would buy this again but at £2.50, there are cheaper alternative from brands just as good (Sorry S&G!).

Garnier Ultra Lift Anti Wrinkle Firming Cream Samples
I have been using these samples this month to see if I notice any difference to my skin. I know, at 21, I don't have wrinkles, but I would love firmer skin so decided to give these free samples a whirl. I haven't as of yet noticed a difference as I haven't been using them long. Depending on how it is, I will consider buying the pot myself :)

Collection 2000 Pressed Powder in 18 Ivory
I love this setting powder, I have used it for years and I cant even fathom the amount of these I have gone through! They dont last too long but are so inexpensive it doesn't bother me. As you can see I have used every last bit haha! Does anyone else do this?

T Zone Shine Control Cleansing Wipes
I picked these up on a whim as they were pretty cheap and needed some wipes for on the go. They were alright, but I hated the scent! I cant describe it I just didn't like it at all - I much prefer unscented facial wipes, so I wont be picking these up again.

Asda Protect For Women Moisture Rich Anti Perspirant Original
I really liked this deoadrant, not a lot to say about it but did the job! I go through deodrant like nobody's business and am always trying out different brands and supermarkets own products so I probably owuld buy this again. 

Natural Collection Wild Strawberry Body Spray
I always buy this when I am in Boots as I adore strawberry scent and this is so long-lasting and for £2 is so so cheap! 

That is it for everything over the past few weeks! 


  1. I use that nivea lip balm, I go through them really quickly though! I also use the pressed powder too. I love it because I feel like it actually matches my skin!!:) xxx

  2. I love empties posts :) I really love that hand sanitiser, i know it's a bit more expensive than carex etc but it doesn't smell like alcohol at all and I love that :) I'm a lip balm hoarder too! :D xx

  3. I like those T Zone wipes, but you're right, the smell isn't nice.
    I have that lip balm, it's good. I alos have loads of lip balms, I have one lying around in every corner of my room and in every bag! My favourite are the Soap and Glory ones. x

  4. If you lived near me Zoe I would do your eyebrows in the salon for free of course haha :p I actually can't believe we are in January either maddddd!!

    Hope your well lovely x

  5. Lovely

  6. Hi Zoe, I just wanted to say thank you for your sweet comments on my blog :) They were lovely to wake up to and read. I don't normally share such personal insights on my blog but I do hope my readers think I write from the heart like you have :) I might try and write more posts like this.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend! x

  7. I love my lip balms! The green Nivea one is my fave as it never feels slimy and keeps my lips super soft :)

  8. I also didn't like those face wipes, I found them too harsh in my skin. Can't live without lip balm, always in my bag :) was lovely meeting you briefly at the meet up yesterday x

  9. Great post - I haven't tried the S&G hand sanitizer yet but I have heard really god things about it :) x
