Empties May 2016

And so it’s time to look at May’s empties! There are so many good things that have come to an end during this month so I’m going to head straight into the list.

3107 London Heart & Soul Deep Cleansing Make-Up Remover

3107 London7

This 3107 London Heart & Soul Deep Cleansing Make-Up Remover has been so uplifting to use. From the moment I opened the jar the scent just lifted me up and then the comfortable feeling of the balm as I remove my make-up turns the chore into a joy. A brilliant product produced by the lovely Dija – you can read all about her and her venture in my previous post here. You can purchase the Makeup Remover here priced at £34.99

DHC Pore Face Wash

There’s never a dud from DHC and this Pore Face Wash does its job to perfection. I reviewed this way back here along with the Pore Cleansing oil.

Avene Physio Lift – Eyes


The Avene Physio Lift Eyes is in the centre of the (blurry) photo above. I’ve not previously reviewed it so – its aim is to target signs of ageing around the eye contour area and is designed to smooth and re-plump sensitive skin. I don’t have sensitive skin but you can’t be too careful around the delicate eye area, can you?

It’s for nighttime use but is lightweight and slowly releases the ingredients all night long. It contains a key decongesting ingredient, dextran sulfate, to visibly reduce dark circles and puffiness. Additional active ingredients smooth wrinkles, re-plump the skin and correct lost firmness. You only need a tiny amount so it lasts a long time. It’s available here for £22.00.

Effaclar BB Blur


What more to say about the amazing La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur!? it’s featured so many times on my blog because I just love it and keep repurchasing it. Here’s my original review. It’s available here for RRP £16.50 but there’s 25% off for the next few days.

Clarins Double Serum

Clarins Double Serum6

This Clarins Double Serum has been around for a while but I trialled it recently for a month together with Pycnogenol supplements. You can read the results of the trial here. Of course, I can’t tell you how the serum performs as a stand-alone but I certainly noticed a healthy bloom to my skin and I believe that’s at least 50% down to this serum. It’s available priced at £57.00 here.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra


Pictured far left is the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra. As you can see it came along with a whole host of other La Roche-Posay favourites but this is the second one I’ve used up. It’s the most comforting of creams. It’s specifically developed for skin that’s intolerant to many products – hence the name. I also love that it comes in a pump that doesn’t allow any air inside and you can watch the plastic insert deflate as the product is used up. Here’s my previous review and here’s where to get it priced at £17.50.

DHC Beauty Lift Lotion

Beauty Lift3

On looking back I’m surprised to see that I haven’t written a full review of this DHC Beauty Lift Lotion before. It’s essentially a toner but with added benefits! It promotes firmer, lifted-looking skin using oat kernel extract and peptides. It deeply moisturises and minimises the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother complexion. It really is a lovely product that tones without tightening or drying. It’s not the cheapest at £34.00 here but then you’re getting a brand that you know delivers what it promises.

Roger & Gallet Precious Restoring Balm – Rose

Precious Nourishing Body Balm

A beautifully scented body cream this Roger & Gallet Precious Restoring Balm – Rose has been a feature on my bedside table to slather on before sleep. It’s from the French classic brand that never lets you down. Reviewed previously here it comes in at £17.00 for a 200ml tin here.

Hope that you find some new favourites here and do tell me if any of these are on your regular purchases list!

Thanks for reading right to the end,
