Product Empties | September & October

Product Empties
  • Save

I only recently wrote my first ever Product Empties post and I’m not quite sure how I’ve managed to get through enough products to already be writing another one. It seems that sometimes everything just decides to give up the ghost at the same time and the last couple of weeks have definitely been an example. I guess it’s pretty lucky that I keep plenty of beauty backups for this exact reason, eh? The following are the products I’ve used up over the last couple of months and what I think of each.


Sleek Lifeproof Foundation | £8.99

So I guess I cheated on this one and didn’t use the whole thing. My friend gave it to me on one of our ‘products I no longer use’ swaps (which I thoroughly recommend as you avoid waste and get to try out more products) so I received around half a bottle. I actually don’t think I ever would have thought to pick up a Sleek foundation but I was pretty impressed by this. If you’re looking for a medium coverage foundation for under a tenner that does the job and doesn’t cake, this should be a contender.

Estée Lauder Double Wear | £33.50

This is one of my firm favourites and I will of course be repurchasing (although I’ll probably wait until the nicer weather of the new year). I believe that this was my third bottle and it’s just a safe bet for lovely looking skin.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation | £10.99

A wonderful lightweight foundation which lasted me really well over the Summer. This isn’t one of those products that I want to scream about and recommend to everyone I know, but it is a decent drugstore foundation.

L’Oreal True Match Powder Foundation | £6.99

I’ve lost count of how many of these I’ve gotten through over the years but it’s definitely upwards of five. I find that this just adds a little extra coverage (on top of liquid foundation) and it lasts really well throughout the day. The (flip up mirror) packaging is perfect for on the go top ups if you’re anything not like me and won’t smash it about and break the pressed powder. A definite repurchase.

L’Oreal True Match Concealer | £7.99

I didn’t realise how much I like the True Match range until I sat down to feature two of it’s products after applying its foundation this morning. This isn’t a product that I’d rush out to repurchase but I definitely would consider picking it up again. It’s lightweight but does the job and I probably bought it in a L’Oreal 3for2 deal which brings the price down considerably.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer | £6.49

I’m not overly bothered about this- it did the job well enough for regular use but I don’t miss it. It’s a fair product for it’s price point but it has a lot of competition. As someone with chronic dark-circles I don’t get the Wake Me Up branding either, it’s just your standard concealer and I’m not rearing to repurchase.

L’Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim | £6.99

This is another product that I continually repurchase, who knew I loved L’Oreal so much? Not me. I’ve used this for years and haven’t found anything that compares as of yet. The ‘Perfect Slim’ is a crucial aspect for that easy sharp point liner application.

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil | £20.50

This is okay but I definitely won’t be repurchasing. I typically enjoy Benefit products but do favour brow pomade over any other brow products; hence my lack of enthusiasm. I also think that the price point is absolutely crazy considering its essentially a brow pencil with a fancy formula and a slant for ease of application.

Rihanna Rebelle Eau de Parfum | £20.00

A couple of years after receiving this as a Christmas present, I finally finished it. Although high-end perfumes are definitely my preference, this one has a lovely coconut like scent and is great for your day-to-day, nothing special use (although it is a little pricey for what I’d label as a cheap perfume).

Bilou Pink Melon Shower Foam | £3.99

This product scores highly for cute packaging and scent (think watermelon Wrigleys gum). Word of warning through- don’t use it in sensitive areas. Despite really enjoying this generally, I tend not to repurchase shower gels that sting because there’s no way I can be arsed to make the effort to use whole different shower gels for separate parts of my body. I also tend to steer towards slightly cheaper shower gels or foams, preferring to splash out (excuse the pun) on products that I’ll actually appreciate when I have time for baths.

Alice + Eliza Shower Gel

I tend not to feature shower gels in my empties (I say in the second shower product feature) because ordinarily my strategy involves picking up whichever is on offer whilst doing my food shop. This one though, was a gift (from Marks & Spencer) so is pretty posh and pretty nice.

Avon Secret Fantasy Eau de Toilette | £5.50

I’ve had this so long that the branding has worn off and recently I was surprised to discover that it had retained it’s scent for all of these years. I owned this before I discovered my love for high-end perfume, leaving this little fella unloved in the back of my drawer. I won’t be repurchasing, purely because I felt that I actually had to make an effort to use it up. Saying that, if you’re on a budget or fancy picking up a perfume you can travel with and not worry about losing then this is perfect. I’ve genuinely never smelled anything nicer (in perfume not body spray form) for £5.50. This doesn’t have that cheap smell to it, so for its price its a good’un.

Nip + Fab Dragons Fix Cleansing Pads | £6.99

These are essentially fancier versions of those cheap toner pads that my year group all used throughout high-school. I bought these a while ago because Snapchat (I think) claimed that Kylie Jenner loves them. If she does, I’m not sure why.

Doris Wagner Pore Refining Solution | £24.90

I mentioned this in my recent updated morning skincare routine, so typically it only lasted me a few days longer. Despite liking this, I’m not going to repurchase straight away, instead I’m planning on trying out alternatives to see if I can achieve more dramatic results.

Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser | £4.29

I mentioned this in a previous monthly highlights post, so you know I really like it. I won’t be repurchasing straight away (as I have so many others to get through) but I will be repurchasing eventually. It’s a great moisturiser for its price point.

Products Update

I really love trying out new beauty products and I’d say that consumerism is just part of my lifestyle. However, after a few months of storing all of my empties for these posts, I’m forced to throw away. I recently watched A Plastic Ocean on Netflix and although I’ve been environmentally conscious for a while now, it moved me much more than I could have anticipated. For that reason I’m currently partaking in ‘No Plastic November’. I am still using many of the plastic packaged products I already own but won’t be buying any new ones this month and I’m actively looking into more environmentally conscious brands. I’m also reducing waste in other aspects of my life and look forward to updating you with how I get on.

    I haven’t actually tried any of the Sleek make-up before, I’ve seen it in Boots but I haven’t really heard much about it so I haven’t looked. It’s interesting to hear that the foundation impressed you though, especially as it’s £8.99. I love the Simple moisturiser – I have used more expensive brands before but I never seem to get the same results as that one from Simple! It’s surprised me because of the price of it – it seems to work really well with my skin! Your ‘No Plastic November’ sounds like such a good idea. I think it is so important that people become more environmentally conscious, I can’t wait to read more and see how you get on throughout the month.

      I tend to find them pretty average (but with fair prices) as a brand, so I was pleasantly surprised by it! It’s a fab moisturizer isn’t it? I only have a few which I prefer and they’re much more expensive. Thank you! I can’t wait to write more about it x

    I’m still yet to try the Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation but I constantly hear people talking about just how incredible it is – I think I need to pick up a tester to try myself.. ? I loved the Simple Rich Moisturiser for so long but like you, have so many others to get through that I’ve just stopped using it. I may need to pick it back up again when I’ve finished the rest! ?

    There are more products here than I was expecting! You’ve done so well to finish and keep this many things. It usually takes me forever to finish something. I like Benefit Goof Proof, but I do prefer pencils over other forms of brow product. I’ve also repurchased the L’oreal liner a few times. I don’t wear liquid all that often so they usually dry up long before I finish them. I think that one is great for the price! x

      It usually takes me a while too but I’ve been more consistent with the same products recently and a lot of them gave up the ghost at the same time! Oh it’s interesting that you seem to get on with Goof Proof better, I’m glad you like the liner too! x

    Love that you found some beauty products that you enjoy using! I need to check out the Estee Lauder Double Wear – I’ve heard a lot of the brand but haven’t tried anything directly from them, only their branched companies. Oh man, concealers that don’t cost a fortune are the best! Rihanna is doing something right with putting her name out there with the eau de parfum.

    It is good that you’re trying to be more mindful about plastic usage. It is important that we limit how much plastic we use because it gets dumped somewhere!

    I have the wake me up concealer. And although I like it, it’s true what you said. It’s nothing wow. I’ll probably get it again just for a light concealer when my dark circles aren’t too bad!!

      I’m glad I’m not alone in thinking its average! I have quite bad dark circles so expected more of this! x

    love emtpies posts! it’s nice to see what people used up and how they really feel about the products! I have enjoyed everything from the L’oreal True Match line that I have but I think the Maybelline Fit Me line would have to be my favorite, same idea behind the products. thanks for sharing soph! x

      I do too! I like the Maybelline concealer but haven’t tried any of the rest of the range so will have to, thanks for the recommendation! x

    Sounds like you have used some amazing products! I don’t have enough empties to do a post this month. I really want to try out the Estee Lauder double wear foundation, heard so many amazing things!

    I adore the Bilou Shower Foam packaging, it is so bright and fun! I’ve always been tempted to try it but may give it a miss if it isn’t good for sensitive areas! Ooh I love Simple products, they are so affordable and kind to the skin, I am currently using their face wash and moisturizer too. No Plastic November sounds like such a great idea, I’ll look forward to reading how you got on and would love to hear what environmentally conscious brands you discover. Thanks for sharing Soph, great post as always <3 xx

      It’s so aesthetically pleasing isn’t it?! I think that Simple is a really good affordable brand, it’s great to hear that you’re enjoying some of their other products too! Thanks Bexa, I’ll be sure to keep you updated with it! x

    Great selection of items dear, I particularly like the body section. The Rihanna perfume sounds wonderful as I love the scent of coconuts. I’ve also had the pleasure of using the Bilou shower foam, once again the scent was refreshing. It was a great product for shaving, so for that purpose, I would purchase it again.

      I’m glad you think so. I love the smell of coconut too, and I totally agree that it would be good for shaving, but my shaving foam is quite a bit cheaper so I’ll be sticking to that! x

    Estee Lauder is one of my favourite foundations, I use the double wear light as I find the original too heavy for everyday wear! I think it’s so important that we use up products especially now with how many come in plastic packaging, you’ve done really well to use up so many products!

      It’s amazing isn’t it!? I love the normal and extra coverage but haven’t tried the light yet! I totally agree with you, thanks! x

    Great photos! I may just have to splurge on the Estee Lauder since everyone seems to love it so much! Is it good for dry skin?

      I have combination skin but it’s much drier over the Winter and it works for me perfectly all year round! x

    I loved double wear for an evening out, but once I went cruelty free it just wasn’t for me anymore. I’ve never heard of the sleek foundation, may just have to give it a good look next time i’m in town. I quite like the bilou foam lotion, have you tried it?

      That’s totally fair enough! It’s definitely worth a look if you like high-street foundations, it’s great for it’s price. I have it but am working through a few other moisturisers before I can use it- good to hear that you like it though! x

    I’m having the opposite at the moment where nothing has been used/finished up for months now! I could never get along with the wake me up concealer I found it had sparkly bits in to reflect the light and it made me orange – not my best look. I used to love that Simple moisturiser but in the winter I don’t find it hydrating enough for me, saying that it’s great in the summer!
