February Empties ♥

Remember in my last post where I said that everything finished at once? Well this month I actually started a load of new things, and I knew I wouldn't be finishing anything else any time soon and because I really didn't want to keep these for ages.. here I am with just February empties instead of my usual two month empties :o)


Simple Kind to Skin Facial Wipes - Do I really have to tell you how amazing these are? These are my go-to wipes for when I'm beyond knackered and need to take my makeup off before I fall asleep standing. i'm pretty sure everyone else agrees with me here! I've already repurchased this (^__^)

Avon Anew eyeliner - I didn't like this at first, I'm not sure why but I really didn't. But after using it a few times I ended up loving it! Had pretty good lasting power, was perfect for tightlining and using on my waterline, had a good smooth consistency (neither too writing-pencil-like nor OMG-its-all-over-my-cheekbones-after-blinking-twice, if you get what I mean). I'm quite sad it finished actually, I really am not liking the one I replaced it with. It's no longer on the Avon website either so I can't get another one! :(

Witch Stick - I always sing this ones praises don't I (>.<) what can I say, it's holy grail material (for skincare) for me. Cheap as chips and does the job flawlessly. Clickety clack over here for the link.. and yes I have already repurchased this. How could I not have haha!

Natural Collection Pressed Powder - I bought this in the shade 'cool' by accident when I meant to get neutral. It was a pretty good setting powder for my foundation. It stopped it from oxidising as much and countered a bit of the yellowness in my foundation. It's only £1.99 at Boots and although it was a good powder, and I'd recommend it, I just want to try something new now so I won't be repurchasing it. 

Dove Go Fresh Deodorant - Not my favourite scent, but definitely my favourite deodorant brand. I find that Sure doesn't work for me and also leaves white marks on my clothes, whereas the Go Fresh ones don't. Already repurchased this, but in my favourite scent - the pomegranate version!

Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips - Feel free to read the review by clicking here. Let me know if you agree or disagree with it. :) It'll also tell you if I'd repurchase this again xD

Well that's all for my February empties folks. Hope you have a lovely week!

  1. Ooo I haven't read a good empties post in ages :D
    Or written one for that matter as I do mine quarterly which means having to wait until the end of this month!

    Are the simple wipes expensive? I usually use Pure 3-in-1 wipes (2 for a quid from Poundland) but they're starting to get a bit tricky to get a hold of!

    Great post.

    1. thanks Louise. not particularly, Boots and Tescos sometimes do offers where its 3 simple products for £5. :) x

  2. I am a big fan of Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. As for the stick, you made me very curious.
    Thanks for sharing.


    1. Nice to know it works for someone! You should try the Witch stick, it's amazing. :) x

  3. I love that natural collection powder. Works the best for me and I've bought it numerous amounts of times! With you on the witch blemish stick. It's sooo good!

    1. sometimes you don't need a big high end brand for something to be repurchase-able haha. and I know, I remember your review hehe :) xx

  4. Absolutely love the Witch stick and I use Dove deodorant usually too! Only other thing there I've tried are the Simple wipes. They're good for taking off my eye make up but they dry out my skin so I used them to get the worst of make up off then wash etc as normal.

    1. Aww I'm sorry to hear they dry out your skin! Luckily for me they dont do that to me ^^ xx
