May Empties

As we say hello to June, I thought I'd share my May empties with you.

Here's my strangely satisfying basket of empty products, so yes, rubbish!

NS-8 Heel Balm Complex- A lotion for dry, cracked heels that acted as nourishing as a balm. My favourite way of using this product was to slather my feet at bedtime and cover with socks overnight. The result being super smooth feet.
Repurchase? Yes, I would love to get my hands on some more of this!

Skinn PM Cleanser- I finished 2 of these cleansers, 1 being full size, the other a travel size. A creamy cleanser that I used day and night because I no longer want to use gel cleansers.
Repurchase? I still have another to use.

Skinn Hydro-Vital Cream- A rich moisturiser that can be used day and night. Targeted for dry skin. Nice product, but I hate the packaging. I much prefer airless, or even a pump so I'm not dipping my fingers into the product.
Repurchase? A fantastic moisturiser to hydrate the skin, but I don't feel that I need it.

NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1% and Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex- These 2 products work together to make the skin healthy, rather than targeting specific concerns. This in turn promotes anti-aging benefits.
Repurchase? For sure. I have a few serums to finish first, but I need both of these products in my life! 

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Cornelius- A matte shadow that I almost finished before it became to dry to use. I applied it almost daily as a transition colour in my crease.
Repurchase? Nice shade, but I can easily dupe the colour from the eye shadows that I already own. In most cases, when I finish an eye shadow, I'm usually over it and don't feel the need to buy again.

W7 Catwalk Concealer- This product was too yellow for me to use as a concealer, but worked well to colour correct under eye circles.
Repurchase? Most likely in future when I need another colour corrector, can't beat the low price!

Lanolips Lemonaid- This lip balm in a squeeze tube acts to moisturise lips while gently exfoliating them. Because it was on the thicker side, I used it at night.
Repurchase? I really don't need a lip balm at the moment, but I would buy it again.

RawSkinCeuticals BB Cream- This is a natural product that unfortunately I'm decluttering because it no longer smells right and the consistency has changed. It was too dark for me (online blind buy) and I only used a little to darken a foundation that was too light.
Repurchase? Probably not, I didn't love it.

Rimmel Black Gel Liner- I am decluttering this because it has dried out. I am annoyed with myself because I had not even used it. Serves me right for leaving the liner to collect dust. 
Repurchase? I'm not sure, I need to use up some other liners first. Best not to stockpile items that have a shelf life! lol

Poni Cosmetics Pegasus Liner- Now having to bin this product almost makes me cry! I love the liner, it has plenty of product left, so why am I throwing it out you ask? Because when I was giving the tip a quick wipe to remove eye shadow the tip fell out! Ugh! I did try to put it back in, but that just wasn't happening. You can imagine the mess I made during that process!
Repurchase? Yes, it's a really nice liquid eye liner.


  1. I don't finish products easily but once a year I go through them and clear out those that don't work for me or don't like anymore. Great post x


    1. I'm trying to get out of my hoarding ways and actually get rid of products that I don't love xx

  2. You finished so much! I can't believe you almost finished a Colourpop shadow, they're massive lol!

    Beauty From Katie

    1. Thanks Katie. I found because I could use the ColourPop eye shadow in my crease, I was able to use it most days xx

  3. Need to try the Catwalk concealer! Haven't heard much about it before now, thank you for sharing. You got through quite a bit! Xx

    1. No problem, I hope you like it if you do purchase the concealer xx

  4. I need to try that heel balm. I think this winter is going to start affecting my feet soon.

  5. I have a backup of the Skinn PM cleanser. I'm stuck reviewing so many new cleansers that I can't bring myself to open it! Argh!

    Smells so good.
