Empties #6

The one thing I like about empties... well there actually a few things.
I love reading people empties because I love the speedy on point reviews.
I love using these as a cross reference of things to things I loved or things I hated.
But most of all I find it so rewarding throwing everything into the garbage once I'm done.
So I thought what better time to get some instant gratification?
Note to self... Tanya you need to go out more!

Dove Dry Shampoo
Here is the thing with this one it leaves a white residue and I'm not the biggest fan of the scent. With that being said it works and since it works I tolerate the temporary white residue. Would I buy again?? I think there are better but pricier choices out there. However if I quickly need a refresh before jolting out to grocery store this is my top, budget friendly pick.

Dove Cool Moisture Shampoo
I LOVE the scent of this shampoo and over the past years I have probably gone through over 20 of these. Not only does it smell nice but it leaves my hair soft, nourished and incredibly light. Will I buy this again? Absolutely it's one of my favourite budget friendly shampoos of all time.

Klorane Floral Lotion Eye Makeup Remover
This is an effective, non-irritating eye makeup remover that made makeup removal easy. If your a fan of the water like feel of Bioderma I think this will be up your alley. I can't say how well this removes waterproof mascara but I had no problems with this. I will absolutely be purchasing this again, I just have a bottle of Bioderma to use first.

NUXE Creme Merveillance
This rich, hylauronic acid based cream made my parched skin so happy. Even the scent of this was something I looked forward to every morning! This unfortunately has been discontinued, but if it hadn't have been I would have purchased by now.

NUXE Oil Prodigieuse
This has to be one of the best multitasking product's I own. You can use this on your hair, body and face, I also recommend using this in the bath too! This light weight oil absorbs instantly leaving you with hydrated, soft skin. Oh and it smells pretty darn mind blowing too! I have already opened a fresh bottle of this and will continue to repurhcase.

Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub
If you were looking for a really effective scrub for sensitive skin this scrub is for you. I think a lot of scrubs designed for sensitive skin simply don’t work, this one does both as a chemical scrub and a physical scrub. I did a in depth review here, should you care to find out more.
At the moment I have a couple of scrubs to get through but I will be going back to this in the future.

REN Bio Retinoid Eye Cream
Bio Retinoid is an eye cream for sensitive skin sufferers who want a little anti-aging in their routine.
While this didn’t do anything remarkable for fine lines it was pleasant enough to use. I will probably not repurchase, but was it wasn’t a bad eye cream in the slightest.

Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake Shower Gel
This shower gel also happens to be a bubble bath and shampoo too! I love these because they make your shower routine a one stop shop and they have tons of really fun flavours too. There are tons of body washes I love and Philosophy 3 in 1’s are among my favorites. I will repurchase another one most likely something fun and fruity during the summer.

L'occitane Almond Shower Oil
This is really, really hydrating with the added benefit of smelling yummy too! If you someone who suffers from seasonally dry skin, love the scent of almond or both I have a whole write up about this here. I have already repurchased another mini of this and highly recommend it to you.
Substitute this for your normal shaving gel and it will blow you away!

What have you finished lately? Leave me a comment!


  1. Ooh, such a nice selection of Empties! I love the smell of L'occitane's almond range- I really need to give the shower oil a go :)
