\ Empties Update || The Good, The Bad & The Ugly - Sweet Elyse

Empties Update || The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Empties post ahoy. This is a bit of a mixed bag as you can see, but it's always nice to do a clear out. So here we go, guys...

Salcura Body Hydrator || This moisturiser contains omega 3, 6, 7 and 9. It's free from nasties, hydrates all skin types and doesn't cause any problems. I'll probably not repurchase this one as I currently need an extra helping of hydration and this is more of a lotion than a cream.

Salcura Zeoderm Cream || Salcura's one of our favourite brands in the Silver household because my little [and big man] men have sensitive skin types. This cream takes away the itch that comes with skin rashes, eczema or hubsters skin issue and leaves the applied area cool, soothed and hydrated. There's also no sting which makes this an excellent after sun product too.

Clearzal Foot Food Nutritional Creme || I. Love. This. Cream. It's lavender scented and is amazing for my face and acne breakouts due to the small percentage of urea in it which helps to get rid of any skin build up that would lead to cysts. I can't fault this other than the price - it's expensive at £10 a tube but so worth it, I promise.

Right Guard Invisible Deodorant || The only deodorant that works for me. I love that it's invisible and regardless of how much you spray there's never any chalky fallout or white marks.

L'Oreal Men Expert Black Charcoal Wash || I've tried a few charcoal based face products recently and was really excited about this as it was aimed at men - typically I've found men's product to be more heavy duty and with my face issues I needed the additional help. However, when it came to using the product I was so disappointed as it was very soapy and didn't help my skin whatsoever. Hubster however, has fallen in love with it as it stops breakouts and gets his beard clean.

Living Nature Summer Bronze Powder || This is a wonderful bronzer which I doubled as eye shadow. Being super light I didn't find this to be too dark or too yellow based which is rare - I will be repurchasing this again for sure. You can read the original review here.

Amazonia Preciosa Face Clay || A simple clay powder that you mix to create a face mask. The reason this is hitting the empties pile is the packaging broke and it suddenly started smelling very talk like - this isn't a product issue but maybe due to being stored in the hot bathroom with the broken lid. You can read the original review here.

Cyrine Aromatherapy Sensual Ylang-Ylang Moisturiser || I love the Cyrine brand because they create the most wonderfully scented and skin issue suitable creams using aromatherapy, the only problem I've found is that if they're not kept in the fridge or used up quickly the oils and cream separates, not this may just be an issue of temperature or a lack of emollient. It doesn't detract from the moisturiser, however, but you do need to give it a quick stir prior to use.

REN Skincare T-Zone Balancing Day Fluid || This fluid is so soothing and aims to even your complexion, it's especially great for combination skin types but I've never repurchased as I've always been drawn in by other brands.

Chit Chat Shimmer Stick || I purchased this from Poundland as a spur of the moment purchase. No idea why other than my inner magpie was attracted to the gold glitter and I figured it would possibly work as an eyeliner at Xmas. Well, I let my son draw on my face thinking it would hardly offer any glitter coverage - I was so wrong. I looked like the gold dude from Austin Powers *sniggers* it was hilarious, I couldn't get rid of the glitter for weeks.

Model Co Nude Illusion Lip Liner || I had high hopes for this nude-toned lip liner, but it fell flat on its face. It dragged too much and wasn't nude in the slightest, it actually reminded me of the old 80's lip liners. I'll not be repurchasing that's for sure.

L'Oreal Top Coat Refill Balm || I've had this for a while, it was originally used to cover the L'Oreal tinted gloss. I purchased the refill as I actually preferred the balm which has a gorgeous scent to it, this, however, has gone unused for over a year so is hitting the empties pile. I doubt I'd rebuy this now though.

CB I Hate Perfume Burning Leaves || I've never been one to shy away from unusual brands or earthy scents and I had heard so many positive reviews about the CB I Hate Perfume brand that I had to try Burning Leaves. Burning Leaves is described as 'The smoke of burning maple leaves, plain and simple' now I love burning smells, I love leaves, I love earthy tones but this resulted in the most grotesque-screw-up-face-ever at first sniff. I've since tried again to get on with this scent because I believe we could be BFF's but nope, my olfactory system is just saying nope, nope and NOPE.

Eucerin Dermo Purifier Adjunctive Hydrating Cream || SPF 30 UVB & UVA protection

Eucerin Dermo Purifier Active Night Care || Reduces blemishes in 3 weeks, oil free

Eucerin Factor 50 Suncream || This has been a winner for my family over the last few weeks and seems to be the only brand of factor 50 that doesn't result in skin rashes or sunburn.

Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Perfume || I previously reviewed this over on this post if you want to check it out.

Mango Lip Balm || This came as a three pack for Christmas, it's not typically something I'd purchase but my lips were super dry and needed something quick. It's pink tinted and does have a false mango taste, as a quick wash of colour it's OK, but it's not hydrating in the slightest.

What empties have you collected lately?
