Empty Products #3


My drawers are overflowing with, well, trash, so naturally I thought it was time to do another empty products post! As you can see it's mostly skincare - but I guess it's good that makeup products seem to last us longer than the odd moisturiser? 
Anyways, let's get started ...


KIKO BRUSH CLEANSER

Let's get the non-skincare product out of the way first: I've written a post about the KIKO brush cleanser which you can read here, but basically it's a fabulous and budget-friendly product for spot-cleaning your makeup brushes! I've already repurchased it and don't see myself straying from it anytime soon!


DR. SCHELLER ORGANIC JASMINE 24H MOISTURE CARE

I know, the name of this is quite a mouthful. Anyways, I've featured this product in various posts before, but this has been my go-to moisturiser for almost half a year now, I think. If I'm not mistaken, this is my second tub and I still really love it! It seems to really agree with my skin so I'm not really keen on trying something new, to be honest - never change a running system, right? 


BALEA AQUA SERUM

Again, I've talked about this before - it's a very cheap drugstore serum that I've been using since my allergies have wrecked and dried out my skin in May and June and I've stuck to it ever since. It sinks really fast into the skin, so I'm applying it both in the mornings and evenings and I feel like combined with the moisturiser above it keeps my skin well balanced - and for about 3€, this is just such a bargain!


THE BODY SHOP VINEYARD PEACH BODY BUTTER

There's hardly a person interested in beauty and skincare who hasn't tried the Body Shop body butters, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet: they're great for moisturising really dry skin and they smell just amazing - in the case of this one ... peachy! :D


LUSH TEA TREE WATER

I've used up several bottles of the Tea Tree Water before, and I will stock up again after my little back-up bottle runs out as well. I love tea tree products in general, and this toner is just perfect because even though it's infused with tea trea, it doesn't carry that incredibly heavy tea tree oil scent that might put some people off (personally I don't mind it at all) - it just smells really fresh and I must say I love how you can just spray it directly at your face in the morning to help you wake up ... 


LUSH BREATH OF FRESH AIR

Since I've been faithful to the Tea Tree Water for so long now, I wanted to try one of the other LUSH toners as well. Even though Breath of Fresh Air is nice as well, I feel like it's not working as well for my skin as the Tea Tree Water does. It's nice, but I still prefer the Tea Tree Water and probably won't be purchasing this again anytime soon.


LUSH BRAZENED HONEY FRESH FACE MASK

I had a few LUSH fresh face masks in the freezer (if you freeze them you can make sure you can actually use them up because they go bad after a few weeks if kept in the fridge) and I've been trying to use all of them up - to be honest, Brazened Honey is not my absolute favourite, but I do like it nonetheless. If I had to choose a fresh face mask however, I would choose ...


LUSH CATASTROHPE COSMETIC FRESH FACE MASK

... Catastrophe Cosmetic! This just smells heavenly, it makes your face smell like a giant blueberry - which is pretty cool. Other than that, it's a really good mask for when your skin is feeling rough and you just need something to calm the situation. Next to the Cupcake mask, this is definitely my favourite out of the LUSH fresh face masks!


Phew, we're done. I know, it was a very LUSH-heavy empties post, but that only means that I'll get a new fresh face mask when I bring back all these empty pots - that return system is quite neat; who doesn't like getting "free" stuff? And now if you'll excuse me, I have to get rid of my trash ...

  1. a lot of people love the tea tree toner water, personally i'm a fan of the eu roma water (sensitive and dry skin), my fave mask is the BB seaweed, might be a good one to try next!

    1. Thanks so much for your comment, Cydney! :)
      Haven't tried Eau Roma yet, but I thought about getting a small bottle to test it next time I get to LUSH, so thanks for the recommendation - same goes for BB Seaweed, I wanna try all of the fresh masks anyways! :D
      I'm going to check out your blog right now, sorry it took me a few days to get back to you! :)

  2. I've also recently finished using the Peach Body Butter from The Body Shop and I'm now using the Chocolate one. It smells so yummy! :)
