Empties no 1 of 2018

1st empties post of 2018! I’m hoping to do these more regular so they’re not as long but at the same time a bit more detailed.

Face masks:

Dr. Jart+Brightening Solution: This one took me a bit by surprise in that it was quite a thick white cream as opposed to the usual white gel I expect from sheet masks. I don’t know that I noticed anything very brightening but my skin did feel soft & moisturised.

Repurchase? No

Primark (Penney’s)Rejuvenating Brightening Pearl Sheet Mask: I absolutely love this mask. My skin always looks better after using it & feels gorgeous. Granted the results don’t last past a day but for that day I feel great. At €1.50 I just don’t see how you can go wrong!

Repurchase? Already Have

Primark (Penney’s)Nourishing Plumping Vit E Sheet Mask: While this is lovely & relaxing on, I didn’t notice any “plumping” going on. I think I’ll stick with the Brightening one.

Repurchase? Maybe considering the price

Sephora Anti-Fatigue & Energizing Pomegranate Sheet Mask: I think I had built this up to mythical status due to lots of American you-tubers raving over it. It’s just a standard sheet mask. I may have looked a tiny bit “energised” but that could be down to me lying back and relaxing!

Repurchase? No

Vichy Quenching Mineral Mask: I really enjoy this mask. I’ve gone through three of these little pots now and I have one left. When my skin is feeling dehydrated (which is pretty often in the winter) I reach for this. My skin feels like its had a huge drink after using it!

Repurchase? Absolutely


No 7 Soft & Soothed Gentle Toner: I adore this toner. I use it every morning before I start putting on my skincare & make up. It does exactly what it says on the tin. It is a perfect gentle toner that settles my skin after washing. I can get quite red faced & my skin can be sensitive. I like to pick these up when No 7 have their money off vouchers.

Repurchase? Already have 2 on back up.

Bioderma Hydrabio H20 Micellar Water: I picked this up because I was curious about the “moisturising ” factors. I have to say I wasn’t overly impressed. It didn’t remove my makeup as good as the original. And my face felt like there was residue on it after using it. I definitely didn’t notice any moisturising.

Repurchase? No

Botanics All Bright Eye Make Up Remover: I didn’t like this. It left my eyes feeling greasy without removing my waterproof mascara, the whole reason for buying this.

Repurchase? No

Simple Cleansing Oil: This is fantastic! One of the best cleansing oils/balms that I have tried since I started using them in early 2017. It takes all my makeup off, even my waterproof mascara. It doesn’t sting my eyes at all which is brilliant. I absolutely love this!

Repurchase? Definitely.

Simple Eye MakeUp Remover: This isn’t bad at all. It removes the majority of my eye makeup. I do notice a little bit left when I wake up the following morning but not much. And it seems to be quite gentle on my lashes.

Repurchase? Yes

PS (Primark/Penney’s) Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipers “Sensitive”: I use these purely for cleaning make up off my hands. I wouldn’t go near my face with them, but it’s prefect for this purpose especially for €1.50.

Repurchase? Yes

  1. I love that you decided to shop you stash instead of spending all this money on brand new things. Makeup is such an addiction and it’s true, following all of these makeup social media outlets definitely makes you want to buy more and more!
