May was one of those months where I didn’t think I’d used up much until I came to sort through my empties bag and realised I actually have a lot of products to share with you…
Keep reading to find out what I used up and what my thoughts are!
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
I’ve been trying to use this last bit of power up for ages and it finally cracked so I ended up throwing the last bit of product away. This is a classic powder that everyone loves because it’s so cheap but I wouldn’t say it’s my favourite.
Revolution Conceal & Define
I got through this so quickly because you get such a small amount of product in here. This has decent coverage but it was too heavy for under my eyes until I discovered applying small dots of product- which was only a few days before it was empty so I didn’t really use this to its potential sadly.
Repurchase? Larger versions are supposed to be releasing so I might pick that up if the price is still good
Benefit Roller Lash
This mini was the mascara that never ended. I don’t know how people use them up so quick- I literally used this almost every day since I started my makeup stash project in January and I think there is still a usable amount left but it was becoming difficult to get my lashes looking how I wanted and I’m a one-coat instant volume girl.
Repurchase? Yes, I will probably get the full size eventually
Maybelline Brow Precise Micro Pencil
I’m sure it’s just me but I don’t get on with skinny brow pencils. I find I have to use so much product to fill in my brows properly that the pencil only lasted me a couple of weeks. If you have good natural brows, this will probably work for you but it’s not for me.
Revolution Brow Pencil
I think I technically finished this up last month but I’d already written the empties post by then so it’s snuck into May’s post. This was a good cheap option but nothing special.
Boots Botanics Radiance Concentrate All Bright Serum
I’d already used half the bottle as a normal serum when I rediscovered this on my dressing table- put there to try and use before makeup application but I never did so I went back to using it after cleansing as its intended purpose. This felt nice on the skin but I couldn’t really tell what it was doing.
Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Exfoliating Pads
These pads didn’t do much for me but, in their defence, I bought them during a hormonal breakout so they didn’t really stand a chance of working against that. For the normal bacteria type of spots, they might perform better.
Repurchase? Probably not
Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads travel pot
I love the full size of these and took this cute travel pot on holiday with me. I probably wouldn’t buy these again because you really don’t get much for your money but they were handy for a few days away.
Repurchase? I think I have another to use up but I probably wouldn’t buy again
Avon Anew Vitale Eye Cream
I used to love this eye cream but it doesn’t seem to do much for me anymore. Sometimes I think skincare does need switching up a bit so I might return to this eventually.
Repurchase? Maybe if it’s still available in the future
Freedom Pro Studio Glycolic Radiance Tonic
I’ve featured this Pixi Glow Tonic dupe in a previous empties post where I said I wasn’t that impressed but I did end up repurchasing. I love the glow this gives my skin but I don’t think it does anything else incredible.
The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter
I really wanted to try a cleansing butter and picked up this affordable option but I wasn’t really a fan. It did the job at removing my makeup but I hated how my skin felt afterwards.
L’Oreal Elvive Full Restore Shampoo & Conditioner
I’ve always loved this range but this duo have been hanging out in my shower for far too long and I wasn’t seeing the same effects as when I first tried this. Like skincare, I think haircare does need changing up sometimes anyway so maybe I’ll go back to this one day.
Repurchase? Yes but not right away
Bath & Body
Paco Rabanne Olympea Body Lotion
I got this in the perfume gift set with my Boots points after Christmas and I loved this to start with as the scent is just like the perfume and it lasted pretty well on my skin but eventually, I started to noticed my skin felt like it was burning after applying this. I do get a rash with certain perfumes so I guess something in this just didn’t agree with me and I didn’t end up finishing the whole thing sadly.
Repurchase? Sadly no
Imperial Leather Marshmallow Shower Cream
I used up a good half of the bottle as bubble bath when I ran out but it does perform better in its intended purpose as a shower cream. It’s okay- smells nice, does the job and it’s cheap.
Sanctuary Spa Green Lemon & Orange Blossom Body Wash
This was a mini from Christmas that I actually ended up loving. I enjoyed the smell and I felt like it did a decent job.
Repurchase? I might get the full size once I’ve got through some others
Ps…Micellar Cleansing Wipes
I mentioned these in my last empties post as they came in a two pack so my thoughts haven’t really changed!
Ps…Round Cosmetic Pads
Same as last time!
No. 20 Charcoal Peel off Mask
This is made for Primark but I think it’s by a Korean brand. It’s one of those peel off masks that’s supposed to remove blackheads. I couldn’t really feel it pulling much from my skin but I feel like it did something, and for the money (it was like £1 or less?), it was definitely worth it.
Repurchase? Yes if I see it again
PS…Brightening Foaming Bubble Mask
Another super cheap Primark mask- this one comes in at just 80p. I’m not the biggest fan of bubble masks but I did like this one. Again, I feel like it did something for my skin even if the results weren’t incredible. I can’t ask for any more for the price!
That’s everything I used up in May! Hope you enjoyed this post x
