July Empties 2014

Monday, 4 August 2014

July was a month of cleaning out and trying to get through products in my shower. I did well in using up most of my body washes (yes, I do have a few in my shower) which is good as I want to finish up as many things in my shower as possible before my big move. For those of you who missed my post on my move, which includes where I am going and what I am doing, you can find it here.

Keep reading to see what I used up this month and if I would repurchase it again!

M.A.C Frost Lipstick in 'Angel'.
I love this colour. If I'm correct I believe this was my second tube of this colour. It is an easy to wear colour that goes with most makeup looks and always gets me compliments.

Repurchase? Already have!

Models Prefer Retractable Eyebrow Pencil.
This is definitely my favourite eyebrow pencil and the fact that it costs roughly $12 AUD makes me love it even more. It is an awesome colour that isn't overly warm and the fact that it winds up and requires no sharpening scores it extra points in my book! Read my full review here.

Repurchase? I have already over and over again!

Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer.
I purchased this primer a while back on holiday in America last year. I purchased this and originally really liked it. I then noticed the burnt rubber smell it possesses and then it all went downhill from there. I can honestly say that this primer doesn't keep my makeup on any longer than if I didn't wear it at all; and considering it is targeted to oily skin, it sadly didn't assist in the wear of foundation on my t-zone.

Repurchase? Absolutely not.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.
I absolutely love this stuff. It conveniently removes dirt and makeup whilst feeling just like water on the face. Read my full review and how I like to use it here.

Repurchase? I already have! 

Swisspers Cosmetic Squares.

These are great and generally are much cheaper to buy for the amount you get than cotton rounds or pads. They are great to remove nail polish, as they don't give off little bits of lint. You just have to be careful of the corners around the eye area, as they can feel a little rough.

Repurchase? Already have.

Maybelline Express Remover Nail Polish Remover Pot.
Talk about amazing and convenient! I love this nail polish remover so much. I have used it time after time for the last few months and it has only just started to lack in presence of remover solution. Read my full review here.

Repurchase? Yes!

Natio Wellness Body Wash.
This wash can only be described as being so amazing you feel like you have been transported to some place that resembles heaven as you lather yourself in sweet fruit nectar. Yeah, I like it THAT much!

Repurchase? YES!

Amazing Grace Perfumed Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel by Philosophy.
I love this multi-use product. I must admit that I never used it as a shampoo but I did have many a bath and shower with it. The smell is divine (scented the same as Philosophy's top selling perfume, Amazing grace).

Repurchase? Yes.

Rose Jam Body Wash by Lush.
This is the most delicious smelling body wash ever in the history of body washes (well in my life anyways). It is a mix of rosey citrusy goodness that smells good enough to eat. 

Repurchase? Yes! Although you can only purchase it at Christmas, which breaks my heart a little bit.

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Mask.
This is easily my favourite hair mask I have used EVER! Nothing has made my hair feel as amazing and manageable as this little gem. My full review here.

Repurchase? No doubt about it!

VO5 Plump It 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? Over and over again.

Girlz Only Dry Shampoo for Light and Blonde Hair.
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.

Have you used any of my empties? What were your thoughts?


  1. I think everybody loves the Micellar Water from Garnier, it`s simply amazing. I bought the Macadamia Hair Mask last week and only used it twice, but Dear Lord, it made such a difference. I`ll definitely buy it again.


  2. I couldn't agree more with what you said on both products. The macadamia mask is hands down the best hair mask I have ever used. I am so glad I discovered both products.

  3. Yeah I am the same I love the Micellar Water, great for everything :)
