Empties #1

I've been meaning to do an empties post for such a long time because I love reading them myself. But every time I come across an empties post or video I remember that I just finished a product and threw it away. Nobody likes digging through their garbage right?
Now I've finally managed to collect a few empty products so let's get on with this post!
the body shop tea tree squeaky-clean scrub
The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky-Clean Scrub
If you've read my blog for a while you've seen this scrub in my July Favourites and Beauty Haul posts. I use this scrub so much and I absolutely love it. It clears my face without over-drying it and as it is a tea tree product it has a disinfecting effect. When you apply it, gently rub it all over you face and wash it away, it leaves a kind of cold and very fresh feeling onto your face which I personally like.

Would I repurchase this product? - Definitely, I already have two new bottles ;)
The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub
The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub (limited edition)
Another amazing scrub! I really like the scent of this since it's really fresh but not too overpowering like some of the Body Shop's scents can be. I've tried many different body scrubs but the Body Shop ones are by far my favourites because they actually remove dead skin. The little stones in the scrub are pretty hard which I think is the reason the scrub is so effective.
Even though it says "Do not apply to face" on the package, I've still been using it as a face scrub but I've had to be very gentle when rubbing. The sad part is that you can only get this from the Body Shop's exclusive spring range if they decide to launch this one again. I'm glad I bought two straight away.

Would I repurchase this product? - Yes, if I can get it.
Maybelline New York Volum' Express Big Eyes Mascara in Very Black
This mascara is the best one I've tried! I think the dual-ended wand is great. I've read somewhere that the wand for upper lashes makes them look clumpy but for me it doesn't do that. I do think that the wand for upper lashes only adds volume, not that much length but I've usually first applied one coat of mascara with the smaller wand on both lower and upper lashes and then applied a couple coats with the bigger wand on my upper lashes. That has made my lashes look very voluminous and great!

Would I repurchase this product? - Yes, as soon as I've gone through all the other mascaras I've purchased and want to try despite this being so amazing!


Have you tried any of these products? Any new recommendations for me?

    My skins terrible at the moment, so I might try that face wash too!

  4. Me too!
    When my skin has a breakout I love to use the Tea Tree Scrub and La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+. They usually clear it out :) x

  7. It's my favourite out of them all! It's a limited edition but I think they'll bring it out again in the spring/summer time :) x
