Empties #3

It's been so long since I wrote my last Empties post. Over four months I think. And as you can see I've collected quite many empty products over that period of time. Even makeup which is quite rare for me, haha. I feel like every time I have more and more products to show you, maybe I should start doing these posts more frequently. What do you think?

Sim Sensitive Absolute Volume Conditioner
I liked this conditioner, I think it was okay. However I don't think it actually made my hair look or feel more voluminous like it claims to do. I think it's no better than other cheaper conditioner and I wouldn't purchase this again.

Goldwell Ultra Volume Shampoo
I really enjoyed using this shampoo and it actually gave me a lot of volume! I still think I like the Dove Oxygen & Moisture range better so I'm not quite sure whether I'd repurchase this one or not.

Goldwell Curly Twist Shampoo
I have straight/wavy hair but I've always wished it would be a bit more on the wavy side. I noticed that this shampoo made my hair look a lot more wavy and otherwise worked like any other good shampoo would.
Clinique Clarifying Lotion (Dry Combination skin)
I'm not quite sure how I feel about this product as it was too strong for my skin and if I didn't moisturise extremely well I had small red spots on my cheeks. I have already repurchased this product but I've not used it so I'm gonna take it back or sell it.

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap in Mild (Dry Combination skin)
I love this facial soap! It cleanses really well and leaves my skin feeling very soft. Unfortunately I purchased the solid version of this soap and it's very drying on my skin.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+
I've been using this for about a year now every time I have a spot or more redness than normal and this helps me get rid of those things. It's a bit drying so I have to use a moisturiser that's a bit more effective while I use this. I've already purchased my second tube and would recommend this to everyone!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
So many people have been talking about this cleansing water for about a year now - I think - and I can definitely see why it's such a hyped product. It's cheap and does the job extremely well. I use this daily and it removes all my makeup and leaves my skin feeling very fresh and clean. I think it even lasts a bit longer than 200 applications. I quickly counted about 250+.
Clinique High Impact Mascara
This mascara gives so much volume and length to your lashes. This has been my go-to mascara but now it has started to dry out and make my eyes hurt a bit as I've used it so long. If you're looking for a good high end mascara I think you should give this one a go!

Lumene Translucent Mineral Loose Powder
If you really want to set you makeup in place then this is the powder for you. It makes my makeup stay on for so long but also it doesn't really get on well with dry skin unless you use an extremely small amount. Also I do think that it can make your skin look a bit more pale if you use too much product.

Vichy 48hr Soothing Anti-Perspirant
This anti-perspirant is really good if you have sensitive skin and can't use products with fragrance in them. It was excellent but after a while it didn't work as well anymore, I think my skin "got used to it" if that makes sense.

Erisan Mild Liquid Soap for Sensitive skin
I tried this liquid soap for cleaning my brushes after I finished my Natusan Baby soap (see small review in Empties #2) which I loved. This however doesn't work nearly as well as a brush cleanser. You have to use so much products many times for one brush so the bottle doesn't even last very long.


What's your opinion on some of these products?

  1. I always wanted to try the Clinique facial soap. My skin is not that dry (combination to oily). Do you think it would work better on my skin than on yours?

  2. Sorry for the late reply dear!
    Clinique has 3 different soaps for different skin types (Dry, Dry Combination and Combination Oily) and two different formulas (liquid and solid). If you buy the liquid version I think the Combination Oily would be good for you but if you prefer the solid soap I'd choose the Dry Combination soap as the solid soaps are a lot stronger.
    You can get samples of the liquid soap from your closest Clinique counter if you want to try it before buying. I recommend getting a sample of the Dry Combination and Combination Oily liquid soap before making a purchase :)x
