May & June Empties 2014

Wednesday, 9 July 2014


May and June saw me go through multiple cans of dry shampoo and other products designed for convenience due to me spending more time studying for my final exams than on my hair washing. Sadly due to the very same reason of having to dedicate a significant part of my life to studying last month I didn't get around to posting a 'May Empties' post, so I have combined May and June together.

Get comfy beauties, this is a long one!


Batiste Dry Shampoo in 'Fruity & Cheeky Cherry'.
I am obsessed with my hair not looking oily, hence my love for the mini cans of dry shampoo. This one is small, smells good, and does the job. It could be cheaper though.

Repurchase? Yeppo.

Girlz Only Dry Shampoo for Light and Blonde Hair (x2).
Anyone that read my blog regularly knows I love this stuff. It costs a whole $2 and at that price, you really can't go past it. Check out my full review here.

Repurchase? Of course! I already have gone through multiple cans.


V05 Plump me up Dry Shampoo.
I noticed such a difference in the volume I got when I used this dry shampoo and I am hooked. I am definitely going to stock up on this stuff when I next spot it on special.

Repurchase? Oh it's happening!

Sunsilk Hold Me Forever Hairspray Stronghold with Micro-Polymers.
This little can of hairspray is amazing! I love taking it with me on a night out for any hair emergencies, or in my toiletries when I travel. It works really well to hold a style, isn't crunchy, and I find that I can brush it out if I need to.

Repurchase? Already have.


Joico Color Endure Violet Shampoo.
Even though I don't colour my hair, I enjoy using a purple or silver shampoo to keep my hair looking vibrant. This one did the trick and comes in a huge 300ml tube!

Repurchase? Maybe, even though this is good I think I might have found something better.

Juuce Shock Treatment Hair Mask.
I love this product because I don't have to towel dry my hair post shampoo and before applying the mask, like you have to with others. You can simply apply this to wet hair after you have rinsed out your shampoo; it's so convenient. 

Repurchase? Yes.


M.A.C Brush Cleanser.
I love using this to regularly spot clean my brushes in between shampooing them. This brush cleanser works wonders. Check out my full review and how I like to use it here.

Repurchase? Already have multiple times.

Nivea Invisible For Black & White.
This is one of the only 'invisible' deodorants that didn't leave white marks on my clothes.

Repurchase? Yes.

Trilogy Rosehip Oil.
I disposed of this not because it was empty, but because it had expired. Rosehip oil is a must have for all skin types, especially in the cooler months for loads of hydration.

Repurchase? Yes.


Kiehls eye cream with Avocado.
I have so much love for this eye cream! I find it is a product that is either loved or hated. I loved it! If you want a basic eye cream that will provide tonnes of hydration and comfort that doesn't migrate into your eyes, this is for you!

Repurchase? Absolutely!


M.A.C Fix+
This product is truly amazing and is something I can't live without having in my makeup kit. It has so many different uses. Find out more in my full review here.

Repurchase? I already have.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin.
This is fantastic foundation. Even though it is considered 'drugstore' it hardly has a price tag that reflects that here in Australia. Despite this, I really stand behind this foundation and love that it is available in formulas for differing skin types.

Repurchase? Definitely.

M.A.C Pro Longwear Foundation.
I love this foundation. I was hesitant to purchase it at first as I dislike many other M.A.C foundations, but I am so glad I got this. It provides the perfect amount of coverage (not too thick, not too thin) and lasts all day on my combination skin.

Repurchase? Already have!


M.A.C Prep + Prime Lash.
It works under every mascara I have tried it with. It makes you lashes look more voluminous and longer than wearing your mascara on it's own. It also makes it easier to get your mascara off at the end of the day, but also stops it from flaking throughout the day.

Repurchase? Yes.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara.
This mascara is not only cute (as far as I am concerned almost everything mini is cute) but it works really well at coating all your bottom lashes without making a mess. It is more than double the price in Australia to most places so I stock up overseas. While it is great, I refuse to pay over $30AUD for a mascara just for my bottom lashes here and would rather just skimp on it.

Repurchase? Yes, but not at Australian prices.

Benefit Gimme Brow.
I absolutely adore this product and cannot recommend it enough for people looking for an easy fool proof brow-perfecting product. For my full review click here.

Repurchase? YES! This is my 3rd tube. I seriously cannot handle not wearing this on the daily.



Neutrogena Facial Wipes.
These wipes efficiently remove all traces of makeup from my face including stubborn lipstick and mascara. A big thumbs up for these bad boys!

Check out my full review here.


Repurchase? Yes! These are my favourite face wipes to date.


Philosophy Purity Made Simple Facial Cleanser.
I have raved on so many times about the praise I have for this cleanser, so I think I have said it enough. If you missed my full run down, check out my full review here.

Repurchase? Definitely.


Dr Lewins Toner*.
I really enjoyed using this toner at first, but quickly felt as though it really didn't do much. I have moved on to greater things. I will be sure to let you know in an upcoming post.

Repurchase? Nope! Sorry Dr Lewins.


Have you tried any of my empties before? Did you repurchase them?

  1. Great empties post! I've got Part 1 (oy!) of mine posting tomorrow. I still haven't tried Gimme Brow, I think I am going to have to just bit the bullet and try it! :)
