I know, I know, it’s been a few months since I’ve done one of these empties posts. Well, sometimes the day job just takes up way too much of my time and brain capacity and things like this suffer. Anyway, there are some amazing products included this time. I hope that you find something that inspires you to make a change to your routine and try something new!
This award-winning Caudalie Vinopure Skin Purifying Toner suits me so well, I’ve reviewed it previously here. It costs £18 for 200ml.
I picked this one up as part of a general shop and didn’t think to take a photo (how can I call myself a beauty blogger I hear you ask!?) Still, this was a great product and one that I’d happily re-purchase. The Neutrogena Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash gives you a really clean feel without drying and helps to prevent spots and blackheads. And it’s just £4.99 for 200ml
This is one of my favourite make-up shots – one of these days I’ll get a camera and do a photography course but until then I’m just grateful when I get a lucky shot like this one. Anyway, the point is that I absolutely loved this B. Powder Blusher in Tempt Me, it was the perfect shade for me and I made really good use of it. Unfortunately, I smashed it towards the end of its life so it wasn’t technically an empty. I can’t see the exact shade available online right now but there are still gorgeous options to choose from here for £7.99 each. I’ve reviewed it and other products from the B. brand here.
This Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Face Lifting Soft Cream was a dream to use. I’ve reviewed it previously as you may know here. Prices start at £23 for the 25ml size.
This gorgeous product is the Emma Hardie Plump & Glow Hydrating Facial Mist is still on offer here for £28.95 – this is a definite must-have if you’re an Emma Hardie fan. You can find my full review here.
When I posted about these New Nordic Hair Volume Gummies on Instagram when I first received them I said that I was easily persuaded to try them because as well as their containing apple, herbs and biotin because they’re simply yummy! I know myself so well. I never forgot to take them as each morning I was looking forward to a little treat. It was just a bonus that once the jar was empty I could feel that my hair was feeling extra healthy and luxurious. You can find them here priced £19.95.
This has been my first experience with the New Nordic brand which has been thinking differently since 1990 to innovate and develop new herbal tablets which strengthen vitality and fight age-related health problems. I was also gifted the Hair Volume and Hair Volume plus Nail Strong both in tablet form. I’ve started to trial these but as you may have guessed, I’ve not been so good at remembering to take them without the gummy format! I’m such a kid!
Love this Kiehl’s original anti-ageing Vitamin C serum, Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate, with 12.5% Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. I’m currently trialling other serums (that’s the downside of beauty blogging you’re constantly trying the next thing even when you’ve found something that suits your skin perfectly!) and find I’m really missing the smooth texture and feel of this beauty. I’ve reviewed it in full here and you can buy it here price £49.50 for 50ml.
La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur
Yes, I’m still using this absolutely fabulous base. I’ve not been able to better it in the five-plus years I’ve been blogging. If it suits your skin colour then you should be buying up all the stock now. This La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur is enriched with aircilium, a cutting-edge ingredient used by NASA, that forms a supple and resistant film over the skin and smoothes its surface whilst letting it breathe. Aircilium absorbs 3 times its weight in oil, keeping the skin matte and unified with a velvet finish. Perlite (composed of silica) is five times more powerful than talc and protects against humidity with its continuous blotting paper effect. Amazingly it costs just £17 here.
Last up from me this time around is the Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser. This is one product that I used all the way and yet I was a little underwhelmed with it. Don’t get me wrong, I love the brand and the ingredients it just wasn’t quite what I expected. You can read the full low down in my review here. It’s available here priced £28.00 for 150ml.
Hope that you’re all looking forward to a glorious Bank Holiday weekend – I’ll see if I can take time to write up some more reviews and views for you here soon.
