EMPTIES #1







Dove  Hair Therapy Regenerating Hair Mask - £4.59 I bought this from Savers (student life eh?) purely because of the price (£1.99!!)  and i urgently needed something to quench my dry, thirsty hair. I can't say it's the best mask in the world, but it was cheap, you get loads of product for your money, it smells great, and makes your hair feel much softer and silkier. Even if the damage is not repaired, it creates an illusion of it. A great bargain. Probable repurchase until I find something better.

Tesco Cleansing Facial Wipes - £0.50 An unexpected find, definitely, but i really do love these. They do the job better than any other face wipe I've tried, don't irritate my seriously sensitive skin and are cheaper than a bag of crisps. Sadly, I don't live near a Tesco but my mum always stocks me up whenever she comes to visit. Repurchase? Definitely, would recommend these to anyone. 

Simple Brightening Face Wipes - £4.20  The classic face wipe. I've used these since i've worn makeup, and they do the job fine, but to be honest I prefer the Tesco face wipes. I'd never turn my nose up at the Simple ones, but i find them to 'dry' to remove eye makeup properly, and I could buy about four of the tesco ones for the same price. Repurchase? No, though i probably will when i am desperate because i don't live particularly near a tesco.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer - £4.19 -> Anyone in the beauty blogosphere worth their salt will know about this wonder-concealer. A holy grail since I was 15 (and struggling with some serious acne), cheap as chips and covers virtually  a n y t h i n g  in its path. I always have two on the go (one for the handbag) and if you don't own one you need to. Repurchase? Always.

Touch of Silver Weekly Brightening Treatment - £3.09-> While i'm not a bottle blonde (technically) i am always on the quest to brighten my locks and tone down any brassy, orangey tones that may be lurking. The colour may look pretty scary, but the bright violet turns to a lilac lather in your hair and I promise it doesn't stain showers or hands. I'm not sure how much it does tone my hair, it seems brighter, but maybe a prolonged use will help? Repurchase? We'll see. 

 Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing 2 in 1 Make-up Remover - £3.25 Love love love. This is an oil-based cleanser, you shake the product before using, mixing the oil and the water and then remove your makeup. This does wonders for my dry skin and removes waterproof makeup like nothing else. (I've never really understood the Bioderma hype, I tried it and felt that i was tugging at my eyes to get all the product off.)  If you have dry skin, (or are just a lover of some serious waterproof mascara) you should definitely give this one a go. Repurchase? Yes!

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara - £10.99 My current mascara of choice. I am admittedly a bit of a mascara floozy (how else are you meant to find the best?!) though i have remained loyal to this one for at least two or three tubes. I like it, but it's not holy grail status. The thing this, i repurchase because even high-street mascaras these days are so expensive, i'm unwilling to drop £13 on a product only to have it smudged all over my face a few hours later (L'Oreal I'm looking at you). I am willing to broaden my mascara horizons soon though, any recommendations? 

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?
