Empties #1

Empties Post Products

Hello, and welcome to my first empties post.
I'm not really sure why I've never done this before. Probably because it's really annoying remembering to keep the empties and finding somewhere to store them.
That aside, over the last few months, I've been keeping the beauty products that I have finished, to review them and say if I would repurchase them or not. So, without further ado...
Empties L'Oreal Elvive Clay Masque
L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Masque
I am rubbish for remembering to use hair masks. I absolutely love them, but I always forget to put them on before getting into the shower. This is designed for oily roots - which mine definitely are. When I use this mask, I definitely notice the difference in my hair. The roots wouldn't get as oily as quick and it seemed to give more body and lift to my hair. I love the whole of this range - as you will see shortly.
Would I buy it again? Absolutely yes!
Empties The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream
The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream
The Body Shop always get it right, don't they! If you've been following my blog, you will have seen that I have been struggling with my skin over the last 6 months,  read a bit more about it here. So, for me, it has been really important to be using products that are really nourishing to my skin. This moisturiser has been perfect. It's really lightweight on the skin, so it doesn't feel like it is clogging up your pores. It works brilliantly underneath makeup, giving a really good base to work on top of. I'm using another moisturiser at the moment that just isn't as good compared to this.
Would I buy it again? For sure
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
I see micellar water as a product I will use when I am feeling lazy. It definitely isn't something that I would use solely to take my make up off. With them, I do feel that you are just smearing your makeup all around your face rather than having a proper cleanse. That said, I have seen Suzie from Hello October use this to take her makeup off prior to cleansing to save her muslin cloths getting really grubby - something which I really hate. So, I may give this a try with the L'Oreal Micellar water that I currently have.
Would I buy it again? Maybe, but I don't see much difference in the drug store micellar waters.
Empties The Body Shop Microdermabrasion
The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion
I feel I have some explaining to do with this. Yes, you are right in thinking the packaging on this product doesn't look like that anymore. It's old school. It's a product that I absolutely loved, when I moved out of my place in Bristol it somehow got misplaced, then I rediscovered it. Before someone starts, yes I know it was probably really old and I shouldn't have been putting anywhere near my face, but I loved it too much. It's probably the best face exfoliant that I have ever used. I can't describe to use how baby soft your skin feels after using this. The vitamin C really brightens your complexion, leaving you with a lovely glow.
Would I buy it again? 100%
Empties Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub For a New Skin
Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub For a New Skin
I got this body scrub as a sample when I bought a couple of other Clarins products - don't you just love that they do that. The exfoliant is really luxurious. It a really finely milled product that exfoliates really, really well. My body feels so soft and nourished after using it. It's a fantastic product, but for £30, I'm not sure I can justify that for an exfoliant.
Would I buy it again? Probably not - drug store scrubs can be equally as good.

Empties L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clan Re-Balancing Shampoo
L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clan Re-Balancing Shampoo
Firstly, does anyone else find their shampoo always runs out before the conditioner, so annoying. When I heard about this range it was a dream for me. They are made for my exact hair type, oily roots and dry ends. I did a first impressions post on these products and I am still feeling exactly the same - totally in love. Like the mask, it leaves my hair feeling nourished, whilst giving my lift and volume.
Would I buy it again? Definitely

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Cleansing Balm
So, the photo for this product for this corrupted and I don't have the product to re-shoot #bloggerproblems. But you all know what this product looks like. This has been my holy grail product for months now. I've repurchased this three times I love it that much. I've been taking a little bit of a break from it and trying out alternative cleansers, but I am missing it. I think it will always have a space in my bathroom cabinet.
Would I buy it again? Not right now - but definitely in the future.

There it is, my first empties post. The first of many I hope. 
What have been the products you've been loving or hating? Let me know in the comments.
Love, Kate xx
