February, March and April Empties ♥

Right that's it! I've had enough of it! *flings her empties box out the window* YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

As much as I love that feeling of having finished a product, I absolutely hate keeping them for a long time. It's like I get a kick out of throwing things out. I can't be the only one right? Right?!

  *tumbleweed rolls past*

Well then. Now that we've fully established that I'm a bit of a weirdo let's move on to today's topic. All the things I finally threw away *rubs her hands together in glee*

Empties Post ft. simple, witch and the body shop

Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Face Wash & Mask - I've been using this stuff for years. It's really good for oily/combination skin, both when used as a face wash and as a mask. Will definitely repurchase this, it's one of my go to face washes for the summer, when my skin decides to become oil central (-__-)

Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes - Love these, but I've decided to stop using face wipes. it makes me lazy with my skincare and I always end up just using this to take off my makeup, brushing my teeth, then falling asleep. I know, such a bad habit. But I've stopped now, and I haven't repurchased them since I finished them :D

Witch Cleansing & Toning Wipes - These were really nice and refreshing, but like I mentioned before, not going to be repurchasing any face wipes - at least not anytime soon anyway. I'd recommend them if you were looking to try them though. If you want to read more about them you can read about it in my skincare routine here :o)

Witch Stick - I go through at least one of these every month. Clickety clack over here to read why~

The Body Shop's Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser - Something else I've been using for years. It's especially good for when my skin is feeling sensitive and acne prone and when it just hurts to touch my face with anything. Alhamdulillah I haven't been needing this as much lately, but I will be purchasing another bottle just in case I need to.

Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Spot Fighting 24hr Moisturiser - Oh my goodness you guys. If you have hormonal acne, this is the thing for you. I'd apply this at night instead of my Simple moisturiser and would wake up to any angry red bumps on my jawline reduced already. I kept at it and they practically vanished! I got this for a quid at Superdrug when they had a sale on a couple of months ago. Best quid I ever spent! It's on for £3.33 over at Boots right now (the cheapest I can find atm) so I'm going to head on down to Boots soon and buy myself another two bottles!

Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser - a staple in my skincare routine. It does the job, although sometimes I do have to apply two thin layers. I've already repurchased it - it doesn't irritate my skin, it sinks in fast and never makes my face oily. I recommend it wholeheartedly (^__^)

Eucerin Dry Skin Replenishing Face Cream - I got this sample in the post when Boots had that sign-up-if-you-want-to-try-this thing going on with Eucerin a while ago. It was really really good! I'm tempted to buy it full size, because I only needed a little of it and it would have lasted a while if my sister hadn't used it too rofl.

Garnier Skin Naturals Simply Essentials Soothing 2 in 1 Make-up Remover - Come on guys. this has been in almost all of my empties posts. Best makeup remover ever!

Garnier Simply Essentials Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover - ...this not so much. It wasn't very good at taking off my eye makeup at all. Took me forever to use this one up because I would always just end up using something else to take my makeup off instead *eyes the makeup wipes* so yeah definitely not repurchasing this..

And last but not least: Avon Make Me Smile - throwing out another one of my old Avon perfumes. It doesn't smell the same lol, I don't even know why I kept it. I need to stop holding onto stuff like this! yes it smelled lovely and citrusy and reminds me of my teenage years but I need to let go already! *throws it in the bin*

Ahhh it feels good to have gotten rid of all of that! Now to make a shopping list of the things I need to replace.. *grins happily* Hope I didn't bore you to tears. Once my exams are over, there will be no more filler posts, I promise (^__^)

  1. When I finally get to throw away all my empties, I kinda slam dunk them into the bin and grin as the lid slowly covers them. Oh yeah.
