February Empties

This week I'm back blogging with another round of empties. In my last empties post I talked about my New Year spending ban... Well that didn't quite happen, but I am continuing to make the conscious effort of using up what I have before I purchasing something new. So, I guess it's the thought that counts (bblogger justification for you) Here are my thoughts on my latest finished products...

I picked this Schwarzkopf Supersoft Repair & Care Shampoo up for only a pound during a quick dash around Home Bargains. I'm not going to lie, this isn't the most amazing shampoo I've ever tried, but it does do a good job of making your hair touchably soft and clean without leaving it with that squeaky feeling.

I've recently come to the conclusion that I will always need a micellar cleansing water in my skin care collection. You can't beat them for removing make-up quickly and efficiently without leaving that annoying residue behind that most cream cleansers do. This is Garnier's travel size version of their Micellar Cleansing water and it's a steal at £1.99. I have since bought their Pure Active version which I also really like, but honestly neither of them beat the Bioderma versions in my eyes.

Next up is a product that I've used up countless times and one that I will always have around. Witch's Blemish Gel is great for popping on acne, pimples, rashes, insects bites and anything of the like. It's fast acting and soothing, and I especially like it if I find I'm having a break out on my chest or back.

Both mascaras that I've finished up lately are fantastic value and readily available at Boots, which makes them super handy for picking up when I'm in need or replacements. The first one is Maybelline's The Rocket Mascara in Very Black. This is a great everyday mascara that you can layer up to create fab volume and length. The formula is glossy and like the name very black! It's usually on offer at Boots for around £7.99. The second mascara that I've used up in L'Oreal's Mega Volume Miss Manga Punky Mascara. This usually retails for around £9.99 and is my preference out of the two. I find this gives me tonnes of volume in just one coat and a much more dramatic look which I love for the evenings. I also prefer the bristle wand in this one compared to the rubber one in The Rocket mascara, bur both are great.

Last up is my travel sized tube of Origins Modern Friction. I have talked about this face scrub a few times before and I still absolutely love it. This exfoliator uses rice starch in a cream formula to gently remove dry, dead skin with ease. If you haven't tried this yet, then you really must. It's on the pricier side at £23 for 75ml but it's 100% worth it.

I'd love to know what products you've been using up and re-purchasing lately? xoxo
