I hope you're all well! Today I'm back with an "empties" post. I hardly ever do "empties" because I can't hack the pile of empty products piling up in my room when I've hardly got that much space in my room as it is. However, I thought I'd give it a whirl as I've tried so many great products lately and they all seem to have ran out at the same time so without further ado, here we go.
|Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation - 100 Ivory|
This foundation for me is an oldie but a goody.. when everyone was wearing Dream Matte Mousse in their teenage years, I was using this. It really was one of my favourites as a teen and I forgot how nice it was to wear. I do still think Rimmel should kind of revamp this foundation a little bit and bring out a new selection of shades as even though this is Ivory, it's still got a orange-y tone to it when applied - far too warm to be Ivory really.
|ELEMIS Gentle Foaming Facial Wash|
|Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb Night Cream|
|No7 Stay Perfect Foundation - Calico|
When I buy No7 foundations, it's very rarely. I think I tend to buy No7 when I've tried quite a few different foundations and all the shades are wrong and I get a little frustrated that I can hardly ever find a foundation that perfectly matches my skin tone so I go back to this because I've been matched on this and I know Calico will match me perfectly. I'm not like most others who have holy grail foundations or concealers or whatever else but when I buy this, I just like it because I know it'll match. I know I probably won't repurchase it again for quite some time but until next time, it was quite nice to wear again.
|P.S Workout Fix Up Makeup Setting Spray (primark)|
I originally bought this setting spray because my friend Cole from ColeoftheBall had bought this and posted about it on her instagram page and I thought I'd give it a go because everybody seems to be really interested in trying out Primark's beauty range lately so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon too. I'm not sure whether this did anything in terms of longevity of my makeup because I never really have an issue with my makeup not lasting throughout the day anyway however I do always use a setting spray even if I am permanently swapping and changing them.
I initially bought this as well for the price tag - £2 if I'm not mistaken - as I can't always afford to spend a lot of money on my makeup when I've run out so the cheapest option for me is always best. I think I will probably keep using it solely due to the price tag on it but again, it probably will never be a holy grail for me either.
|Botanics 100% Organic Nourishing Facial Oil with Rosehip|
I've never really used a facial oil within my skincare routine, only because having oily/combination skin, I've always stayed away from applying more oil to my skin however I've heard that applying oil to oily skin can sometimes counteract the skin's natural oil production and work wonders for the skin. Since hearing this, I thought I'd give it a go, including a facial oil into my skincare routine and chose this one from Boots (£11). I can honestly say after using this facial oil over the last couple of weeks, the difference in my skin has been amazing. To me, it's felt a lot plumper and more hydrated as well as the appearance in radiance being boosted significantly too.
I was only using this of a morning and it just felt better on my skin as part of my morning skincare routine and can honestly say I couldn't have been more devastated when this ran out, I absolutely loved it. As it cost £11, to me this was a pricier skincare product I've bought as I tend to not splurge a lot on my skincare so I am umming and ahhing about repurchasing it for the price tag but actually because I saw such a difference in buying it, I'm going to have to bite the bullet, stop complaining and repurchase this as it actually worked immensely well on my skin - I just wish the price tag was a bit lower.
That's all for my empties this month. I have to say I don't really go through that many products usually to be fair but for some reason this month, all have these seem to have ran out at around the exact same time as one another so it did prove useful for an extra post here on TheHannahLouise.
What products have you been loving this month and what empties do you have laying around your bedroom/makeup space?
Enjoy the rest of your Monday my little bees and we shall speak again soon xx
