If you were to open my bathroom cabinet, I’m a little ashamed to admit that an unruly amount of empty products would fall out. This is because I keep them all, with the best intentions of photographing them, then in a flurry of fury at the amount of empty bottles that come crashing out of said cupboard, I end up throwing them all away… so your eyes never even get to gaze upon what I’ve so lovingly or sometimes begrudgingly used up. Well, today was different. I was determined to finally clear some space in my ever growing beauty cabinet.. and make room for other offerings. One must be fair to all products on the market after all. So gaze your eyes above friends… these are the empty beauty products I’ve been loving recently!
An oldie but a goodie and a firm favourite still in my books. The Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask is one of the original and best sleeping masks. I love this for long haul flights and any time my skin needs a serious dose of full on moisture. Once you smooth this on, it becomes clear… then awake to soft peachy skin. It couldn’t be easier.
I love the pump action of this product which makes daily moisturising oh so easy, it’s beautifully scented and leaves your skin soft and hydrated without being overly greasy or heavy. The only thing that’s really annoying is that you can’t really get out the last of the lotion with the pump action and you have to take off the entire lid and shake it out instead. Not ideal, but I would still buy it again because it smells so lovely.
The all time beauty blogger favourite, this Bioderma beauty cleanses your face and leaves it beautifully hydrated. It’s also the ideal first step before using your favourtie cleanser to fully remove all traces of make-up. It leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft, clean and soothed. I love this version, that’s been formulated for sensitive skin.
Listen up ladies, if you had a Brazilian blow dry, you don’t need to fork out your well earned pennies for pricey shampoos… just buy one without sulphates which won’t strip your hair of the keratin treatment, so you’ll stay frizz free for longer. I’ve been loving this Umberto offering for a while now. It doesn’t really foam up, but it will leave your hair soft and clean… keeping your Brazilian blow dry looking good for as long as possible. Score.
Lately, I’m all about the glow and anything that promises to deliver in that department will be a firm feature in my bathroom cabinet. This baby has been bought time and time again, as it feels incredibly refreshing and seems to pep up my skin nicely as the last step in my skincare routine, before applying make-up.
