I have a confession, I am a hoarder. After I finish a product I keep it in a little box in my office to review for a Youtube empties video.
There is no better feeling than finally throwing away that empty products. I have filmed my end of winter empty products, where I tell you whether I will be repurchasing each product and why.
THE CLINIQUE CLARIFYING LOTION
I use The Clinique Clarifying Lotion as a toner, I picked this one up because it is alcohol-free which is a lot more gentle on the skin.
This toner did not irritate my skin and was also calming on my sensitive skin so, I would definitely repurchase because I feel toner makes a huge difference to my skin.
YOUNG BLOOD TRANSLUCENT POWDER
I have not finished this product, however, I have had it for longer than I would like to admit and I think it has expired. I noticed it wasn’t settling into my skin how it should be so it was time to bin it.
MACRO NATURAL VITAMIN E CREAM
This is a winter must! If you struggle (like me) with extremely dry/cracked hands or even eczema during winter, this is a thick creamy product that can help restore your skin.
I put this on any dry place before bed, if you have extremely dry hands, put cotton gloves on over the cream. This will really help the cream soak into your hands and you’ll wake up with a lot softer hands.
CETAPHIL UVA/UVB 50+ DEFENCE DAILY MOISTURISER
This is a nice facial moisturiser with a high protection of 50+ from UVA & UVB rays. I love this product, it wasn’t quite empty but it was out of date and I’m not risking my face to the suns rays, even during winter.
CARMEX LIP BALM
Probably my No.1 winter must have is Carmex lip balm. I constantly have one on me, there’s one in my car, at work in every room of my house, I can’t live without it.
Manicare Nail Polish Remover Pads
There are great for traveling with, they remove nail polish quite easily. However, I prefer the Maybelline nail polish express remover, it’s so quick and easy to use.
Biore Charcoal Pore Minimiser Cleanser
I’ve heard that charcoal cleansers are great for removing blackheads, that’s why I purchased this initially. However, this particular cleaner did not work well with my skin, and I had to stop using it.
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
This product works amazing under the eyes, it truly does help brighten and blur blemishes. I have had this product for a while so I decided to throw it away because there is a sponge on the end that I feel might be housing some bacteria. I will be repurchasing.
Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation
I’ll be honest I have not tried a lot of foundations but of the ones I have tried this, is my all-time favourite. It truly does work as a primer, concealer, and foundation, it has great coverage! Will definitely repurchase.
Loreal Telescopic Mascara
I loved this mascara, the wand was great for separating and lengthening the lashes. Not so much for volumising but it also worked great for applying mascara under the eyes.
