All Used Up #4

Hi Guys,

So I hope that you are all well, so I know I haven’t done an empties video for a long time so this is going to be a long one, I just completely forgot about it over Christmas and new year. A lot of these products are favourite ones of mine that I have repurchased already.

Sally Hansen Strengthening Nail Polish Remover
This is my go to nail varnish remover and I have used it for such a long time. I have really soft nails and this helps to keep them strong. I have already purchased another one, I go through nail varnish remover so quickly because I love changing my nail colour. 

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Intensive Conditioning Mask
This was the first deep conditioning mask I had ever used and I love it, I already have another tub of it on the go. I only use it once or twice a week and it just helps to keep my hair nice and smooth and soft, it also makes my hair more manageable. 

Soap & Glory Flake Away
I have got such a Soap & Glory obsession, like I'm sure that most people have at the moment. Everything of theirs smells amazing and works brilliantly. I absolutely love this scrub; it has an oily residue once you have used it which I love. I am currently using their Sugar Crush scrub and I absolutely love that too, I have got another Flake Away in my stash for when the one I am using at the moment runs out. 

Clinique Mild Liquid Face Soap
I used to use this cleanser for such a long time, and I had this bottle for a while and I just went through it to use it up really, because I have found other cleansers that I love more than this one. I mean I have some mini ones of this cleanser that I use when I go away anywhere but it isn’t my favourite and I wont be buying the full size one again I don’t think.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser
Well, there is so much that I can say about this cleanser, I absolutely love it. It is one of the first cleansers I have been able to use on my eyes that does not sting at all. I really struggle with using cleansers on my eyes normally because they are so sensitive. This is at the moment my favourite cleanser that I have ever used. It smells amazing and just feels amazing on my skin. I am already using another one and have just bought a backup because it is at the moment half price. 

Dove Hair Therapy Colour Radiance Conditioner
I randomly bought this because I had run out of conditioner and I found it for £1. I did like it but I wasn’t too keen on the smell at all, I like fruity shampoo and conditioner. I also like changing up my hair care products sometimes so I have not repurchased this and I don’t know if I ever would. 

Clinique Moisture Surge
This is my go to night time moisturiser, I have used it for over a year and I absolutely love it, it is a little bit expensive but I think that it is so worth it. You do not need to use much at all and it lasts a long time, I also love the fact that it doesn’t make my skin feel greasy it just makes it feel smooth and soft and hydrated. I am already using another tub of this and I cannot see me buying anything else in the foreseeable future.

Clinique Superdefence
 This is my daytime moisturiser that I use alongside my Moisture Surge. I also sometimes use another one which I am going to mention in a moment. I have used this for as long as I have used the Moisture Surge. I have also repurchased this and am using it at the moment and along the same line as the Moisture Surge I cannot see me using anything else.

Superdrug Head In The Clouds Dry Shampoo
I always have some dry shampoo in my beauty cupboard. It is a staple for me, I really liked this one but it was not as good as the Batiste that I was using before, which is what I have repurchased after this one ran out.

Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch Concealer
I think that this was the first illuminating concealer I have ever had, I could be wrong. I really liked this is was the right colour for under my eyes and really brightened up that area. I purchased the Maybelline version to see how it compared once I had finished this one and to be honest I don’t know if they are much different. So I think once my Maybelline one has ran out I will repurchase this one because I think that it is cheaper and pretty much does the same thing

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturiser
This is the other moisturiser that I was on about before, I have used this for as long as I have had a cleansing routine and I think I will always have it in my collection. I love it for when my skin is feeling a bit oily it just seems to combat that and still moisturise my skin well enough throughout the whole day, I also love this one for in the summer. This was just a mini one that I had in my handbag but I have the full size one on my dressing table that I use.

Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream
I used to use this a lot but I have recently decided it isn’t ‘scrubby’ enough for me now, however this has been over the winter so maybe in the summer I will prefer this again. I think I will try it again in thee warmer months and see how I feel about it.

Dove Go Fresh Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena
The only reason that I bought this was because my normal deodorant (Dove Cucumber & Green Tea) was sold out when I went to get it. I only use Dove deodorants because they are the only ones that I don’t seem to have an allergic reaction to. I did not like this one anywhere near as much as my normal one so I have gone back to my Cucumber & Green Tea one.

Simple Kind To Eyes Makeup Remover Pads
I did really like these, however they were so expensive for what they were because I needed to use atleast 2 of them to get my eye makeup off, which meant that they only lasted about 2 weeks, also that fact that I have now found a cleanser which I can use on my eyes I don’t really need them, however I would get them again if I was going on holiday or something like that, just for ease.

Natural Collection Lash Definition Mascara
For how much this mascara costs I really really like it, I have the clear one for setting my brows. I have also repurchased this, it stays put for most of the day and is not hard to get off at the end of the day. I think that once I have gone through my mascaras that are open I will repurchase this one, although I am still on the hunt for a new mascara that does exactly what I want it to do for me. Any suggestions?

17 Blusher in Damson Wine
This is the 2nd one of these blushes I have had and used up. I love it, it has been an everyday blush of mine for a long time. The colour gives me such a natural look that looks nice and natural, I haven’t repurchased this yet as I have so many more blushes to use up, but I will repurchase it at some point because I really like it.

Clinique High Impact Mascara
This is only one of the miniature mascaras but I have used many of them up and at the moment it is one of my favourite mascaras I have ever used. I have a couple more of the small ones to use up which I am happy about but as I said before I am still on the lookout for one that does everything I want. For me this one doesn’t quite lengthen enough. 

No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser
This was the first hot cloth cleanser I used and I did really like it, I couldn’t use this one on my eyes which was disappointing but it lasted for quite a long time and I liked the fact that it was in a pump bottle. However after finding my superdrug one that I can use on my eyes I do not think that there would be any point in me repurchasing this one again. 

So this was everything that I have used up since my last post. I think I may need to start doing these more often because this has taken me a long time to write.

Have any of you used up any products recently?

Lots Of Love 


  1. I'm really weird, I always buy new stuff before things run out, so I have loads of things that are like 2/3rds empty sitting in my room, but never any empties!

    I love S&G sugar crush, but I might have to try flake away now too! (see what I mean...)
