Ten Empties #8

Another instalment of ten empties! There’s a couple of extras in here (there usually is but who’s counting?) On to what I used up!



L’Oreal Pro Glow Foundation

I reviewed this foundation here but I liked it. It’s a light, natural coverage that looks glowy but not too oily on my skin. It’s quite thin and liquidy which I don’t love, has a terrible shade selection and it’s also exclusive to Amazon in the UK so not ideal but I might try it again in the future.

Repurchase? Maybe

Benefit Gimme Brow

Until I started using another brow gel, I didn’t realise just how dried up this was. I was basically just using a spoolie on my brows! But it’s a firm fave product and lasted ages, even if it did run out sooner than I first thought.

Repurchase? Already had a backup so not right now



Superdrug Calm Skin Blemish Rescue Gel

I love Superdrug skincare and this is a great budget-friendly spot gel that actually did work to calm down blemishes. It’s the kind of spot treatment that forms a gel where you apply it so it’s best used on no makeup days or on evenings.

Repurchase? No

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid

This is another spot treatment I really like and I’ve been through a couple bottles of this stuff. It looks like it’s out of stock everywhere so I might have to find an alternative.

Repurchase? Yes but can’t right now

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Acid Daily Cleansing Pads 

I’ve used these before too and they’re a great budget-friendly option if you’re on the hunt for cleansing pads. I’m not sure if they’re as effective as the Nip+Fab ones for me but they work and I will probably buy them again.

Repurchase? Yes



Avon Naturals Aloe & Macadamia Treatment Mask

My only haircare item this time is this Avon hair mask. It was fine but nothing particularly remarkable and I used it up very quickly!

Repurchase? Maybe

Bath & Body


Baylis & Harding Rose Prosecco Fizz Luxury Shower Creme

I think this is the last of this set I got for Christmas. Loved the scent of this one but the texture is thick and jelly-like so I used it up so quickly!

Avon Sensitive Rose Petals Bubble Bath

This is designed for sensitive skin I think so has very little fragrance. I prefer something with a scent but I thought it might help my allergy to some perfumes. It provided bubbles just as good as any other bubble bath though!

Repurchase? No

Live Love Energising Body Wash

I bought this from Revolution- think it’s an old line of theirs- having previously tried the hand gel in the same scent. Not the best body wash ever but it smells incredible and I loved the pump packaging.

Repurchase? Can’t but probably would



Barry M Matte Nail Paint

I’ve put this Barry M matte topcoat in the misc section as I rarely finish any nail products. This worked really well to mattify glossy nail polish including over false nails and was also great at smoothing out and covering up polish mistakes. There’s a tiny bit left but I’ve had it ages and it’s gone gloopy.

Repurchase? Yes

PS…Oval Cosmetic Pads & Round Cosmetic Pads

I’m trying to cut back on how many disposable cotton pads I get through but the ones I do have are always these two varieties from Primark. 

Repurchase? Yes

Beauty Blender Nude & Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Two more sponges in the trash to make way for newer ones. These were both faves but starting to go a bit gross and I love my Blank Canvas Cosmetics Airbrush Blenders now!

Repurchase? Probably not
