February Empties

When I write my Empties post, I tend to loose count as I can't remember what I finished at the start of that month. I was surprised to see that I finished ten products throughout February. As soon as I finish something I put it into a tiny shopping bag I own from Forever 21, not to be seen again until the end of the month (makes sense that I wouldn't remember). All in all February has been a good month, I've had some of these products for a while so I guess it was about them I finished them.

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub
I love this lip scrub. I've lost count of how long I've had this for, so believe me when I say they last  for ages. After using this, my lips were left feeling so smooth. Also the smell was pleasant, just like Snow Fairy. I got the Pow Wow lip scrub at Christmas time but I don't think I like it as much. I may have to buy this the next time I'm in Lush.

No7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 wipes
I'm going to keep this short and sweet as I do seem to ramble on about these wipes quite a bit. There my favourite wipes on the market right now. Since I'm all out of them at the moment, I've been using different wipes (post soon) which don't compare at all. If you go into Boots looking for these, the packaging has changed completely, but they are the exact same wipes.

Soap & Glory The Breakfast Scrub
The Breakfast Scrub is another product I have a lot of admiration for. Not only is it an amazing scrub it also smells great. I did a review way back when I started blogging you can check it out here.

Liz Earle Skin Repair Light Moisturiser
I've been using this moisturiser for ages now. I can't say how much I like it enough. I have combination skin, so this moisturiser is light but still really moisturising. Skin Repair Light is expensive at €20.50 but I think it's worth every penny.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
When I seen that I was almost out of Urban Decay's Primer Potion, I ordered another off I've tried other eyeshadow primers in the past but they don't compare at all. This also comes in other shades, I want to try Eden (matte) and Greed (shimmery gold) next.

Urban Decay All Nighter Spray
My Mom got this for me when she went to New York last year. I'd heard so much nice things about the All Nighter Spray. I think it's a really nice product but at €27.50 there's much cheaper alternatives out there. For that reason, I probably won't be repurchasing it.

Batiste Big & Bouncy XXL Volume Dry Shampoo
I didn't like this at all! Don't get me wrong it gives you volume like it says it will, but when it came to brushing my hair, it was a complete nightmare. I felt like I was yanking my hair out completely.

Garnier Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
This is by far my favourite eye makeup remover. A while ago I messed up and bought Garnier's 2 in 1 eye makeup remover and I didn't like it at all. I do use this product up very quickly, but it's not too expensive (€4.99) and it's usually on special offer.

Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion
This is the third bottle of Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion I've gone through. I really like it so I'll be picking one up the next time I'm at Wilde & Green. It may not be a neccessity, but my eyes always feel super refreshed after using this. You can see my review on this product here.

Have you tried any of the above products??



  1. I love 'empties' posts, I found that about the XXL dry shampoo, to begin with I liked it but then found it was horrible in my hair compared to the normal.


    1. I know XXL Volume does give good volume, but left my hair feeling knotty. It was almost impossible to brush my hair xx

  2. I have eden and quite like it, Im not usually a primer fan! Nice post

    1. I have to use primer or my eyeshadow would be gone by the end of the day!! lol Oh I may ahve to try Eden next!!:):) xx

  3. you finished up a lot of great products this month!

    1. I know, I probably won't finish anything next month or the month after xx

  4. There are quite a lot empties. Well done! I always feel so proud of myself to finish up a product.

    1. I'm the exact same, I feel I can justify buying new makeup if I finish some products xx

  5. well done using up so much! ive had quite a good month of emptying things too!

    1. Thank Victoria!! One of these months is definitely going to be a fail for me though, I'm surprised how much I've actually finished. Oh will have to have a look at your post now xx
