Empties #3

Since my first empties posts, (seen here and here) I've used up quite a few products, so for today's post, I thought I would show what I've been using over the last couple of months (and to clear out my drawer that was currently storing all these!)

Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight - I love this product! I have long, naturally curly hair that can be hard to tame, and over the last few months, I've started getting into blow-drying my hair straight, and this is what I use as heat-protector and a helping hand. I find it does really help to tame my hair and keep it frizz-free, and also helps make it that bit more straighter and helps it last a lot longer. I have and will continue to repurchase.

Michael Todd Cranberry Antiox Toner - I wasn't overly impressed with this toner. I never really noticed that it did anything for my skin, although it didn't dry it out like some toners can. I won't be buying this again.

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel - If you've read my previous empties post, you'll know I love this shower gel. Unfortunately it's a limited edition product that's only available at Christmas time, so it's not easy to get hold of. I did get some for Christmas and from their sale, and will repurchase again when it's back in stores.

Herbal Essences Fresh Balance Clarifying Shampoo - This is a great shampoo that I use once a week for a really good deep-clean to make sure all the product build-up is out of my hair. I have repurchased this, and it always seems to be on offer for under £2 for a big bottle, which lasts for ages!

Michael Todd Hydration Boost Serum - I did like this product. I seemed to help give my skin a moisture boost, but I couldn't use just this as my moisturiser, which is one of the ways that this can be used. I haven't repurchased this, and I'm not sure if I will, at least not in the near-future.

TRESemme Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo - Once again, this is my favourite dry shampoo that I have used. I go through so much of this stuff, and always stock up when it's on offer. I have repurchased this, and will continue to.

Michael Todd Intensive Organic Cream Eye Treatment - This was probably one of my favourite products that I tried out of the Michael Todd range I brought. It really kept my under-eye area moisturised, and was light enough to wear during the day underneath makeup. I haven't repurchased this yet, but am definitely tempted to.

Michael Todd Honey and Oat Deep Pore Cleanser -  Now, this I have mixed feelings on, firstly it did really work to clean my skin, and make sure everything was off, and leave it feeling refreshed. However, I did notice that it dried my skin out slightly, which was not good for me, as my skin is already dry combination. I don't think I'll be repurchasing this.

Witch Tinted Moisturiser in 2 Medium - I use this on days where I don't want a full face of makeup, just a light covering to make my face more even. Not only does it even everything out, it also has blemish fighting ingredients, so is great when you're having a break-out. I have repurchased this.

Lacura Aqua Moisture Cream x2 - This is my current favourite daytime moisturiser. It leaves my skin feeling and looking hydrated, and works great under makeup. It also contains a low level SPF, which is better than nothing. And the best part is it's £1.99 for a glass tub! I have repurchased this, and probably will continue to.

Lush Ocean Salt - If you've read my previous empties post, then you'll probably know that I used to like this scrub, but I had really gone off it. Anyway, I had forgotten that I had already repurchased this, so this is the that tub. I won't be repurchasing this.

Pantene Smooth and Sleek Light Silicone Free Shampoo - This is one of my current favourite shampoos. It claims that it doesn't weigh your hair down, as it doesn't contain any silicones, and I think I agree with this. It also helps to smooth out my hair, and keep it looking glossy. I will repurchase this.

Pantene Smooth and Sleek Conditioner - Again, my favourite conditioner currently. This leaves my hair so smooth and sleek (see what I did there!) and helps control frizz. I will repurchase this.

I'm glad to have my drawer back again! For now that is anyway.
