Empties: Update #18 - Skincare (Cleansers)

Image
I have several skincare products to post in the empties, acids, oils and moisturisers are upcoming in separate posts. I thought I'd start off with my first step in the routine: cleansers.

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser (available here): The Indie Lee cleansers are just ok for me, and at times, they're even a bit stripping. They smell nice, but that's about all.

Indie Lee Rosehip Cleanser (available here): See comments above.

Murad Essential-C Cleanser (available here): I got this in one of the reward sample sets from Sephora. It's actually really nice, cleanses without stripping, and has a light citrus scent. I reached for this more than the Indie Lee cleansers.

Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip (available here): This is a nice cleanser for when I'm breaking out. It works well with the Clarisonic, which in my experience is rare with more natural cleansers. I hate using Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser with the Clarisonic, but some people love it. Ceramic Slip rinses clean and d…

Empties: Update #17 - Makeup

Image
If I manage to finish a makeup product, it's usually something I repurchase.

Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector (available here): I get extremely oil during the day, and this helps limit the oil and keep my makeup on longer.

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss Top Coat - Excitation (available here): Love this gloss, can't wait to get a new one!

Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder - Light (available here): I think I've gone through 3 of these now. It's my favourite setting powder. It's talc-free and there's no flash back if you blend it out well.

Dior Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss (available here): A lovely sheer gloss for everyday wear. I've gone through 3 of them.

Dior Diorskin Forever Undercover Concealer - 050 (available here): This is my favourite concealer. Some concealers tingle when I apply them under my eyes, and I don't get that with this one. It's full coverage and waterproof. I never have issues with it. I do wish more colours were availa…

Empties: Update #16 - Hair and Body Products (Mini Reviews Included)

Image
I've taken a break from posting and social media to just deal with life and all of its wonderful ups and downs. However, blogging has always been a bit of a release, so I'm trying to get back into it. It also helped to finally get rid of the empties I've been hoarding for a few months now!

I don't have many empties on the hair front because I've been wearing braids for months. I finally switched back to my natural hair about a month ago. Time to give my edges a break, I thought, but then Beyonce came through with Beychella and snatched them out!

Camille Rose Algae Renew Deep Conditioner: Check out my full review here. This has been an HG product for years and still going strong!

Curl Junkie Repair Me! Reconstructive Hair Treatment: I love this! Too bad it's not carried in the UK anymore. I might pick up some during Black Friday sales.

Mielle Organics Flexible Hold Edge Gel: This was my favourite edge control until I got my current one. Mielle is more accessible t…
