Empties # 4

Another 'Empties' post from me. I have actually finished quite a few other products so 'Empties # 5' will also be up shortly. I kind of hope my mom reads this because she seems to think I only buy things and don't finish any (hi mother!)
Without further ado here are some products I have finished since my last 'Empties' post at the end of February. (I will be talking about the products in a clockwise order, strating from the top left).

L'Oréal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Crystal Sparkling Shampoo
The Nutri-Gloss range used to be my favourite when I was a teen and I do find it makes my hair silky smooth, really soft and easier to manage. However, I could see the sparkle in the shampoo but I don't think it really translates onto the hair. I think maybe you would have to use the full range for the sparkle effect to actually work but apart from that it is a nice shampoo.

Vichy Dercos Technique Energising Shampoo
This is a shampoo for people suffering from hair loss- I find my hair falls out quite a lot so I thought I would try an anti-hair loss shampoo but I don't know if this actually made any kind of difference. This one was given to me and straight afterwards I moved on to Alpecin so I don't actually know if this helped solve my problem at all. I do know that this doesn't make your hair as squeaky clean as Alpecin does though, which is something I really don't enjoy about Alpecin because it just feels really stripping.

No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser
A few months ago this was my Holy Grail cleanser, I absolutely loved it. But now I am starting to think that that was only because I had never used a hot cloth cleanser before. It is a nice product, but because my skin is so dry, I prefer to use balm/oil cleansers now because I just find them a lot less stripping. If you have oily/combination skin I think this would be nice for you though because it did leave my skin feeling really clean and soft.

Bioderma Créaline H2O
My favourite makeup remover of all time! I like to take all my makeup off with this before cleansing and finishing off my skincare regime. I also use this in the morning when I wake up, to take off any treatments I left on overnight and to remove any gunk on my face (does anyone else get sleepies in their eyes?!) I think I will always have a bottle of this around, because I have really sensitive eyes and this has helped in terms of keeping my eyes juicy...(?)

Nectar of Nature Softening Shower Gel - White Lily Petals
I don't know if you can get this outside of countries that have Carrefour. I never have much to say about shower gels but this brand of shower gels (and other products) is really affordable and they all smell amazing.

TRESemmé Split Remedy Conditioner
I don't know why I haven't repurchased this because I finished this quite a long time ago...I don't think anything can actually fix split ends but this definitely improved the appearance of my split ends and prevented them from getting worse at a quick rate. I was actually really impressed by this even though I was really sceptical.

Soap & Glory - The Breakfast Scrub
THE PERFECT SCRUB. It smells of freakin' maple syrup - but you WILL want to eat it.

Soap & Glory - Thick & Fast
This is an okay mascara. I did find it dried out really quickly which has put me off ever thinking of repurchasing it.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir
I use this to set my makeup, my skin can look a little dull so I like to spritz this on top of my makeup, especially if I have powdered my skin. This is quite expensive and it does contain alcohol so I am in two minds about whether I should continue using it or not. I still have half a bottle left and I do love the way it smells and the way it makes my skin look but I'm not sure if it is actually doing my skin any good.

Dove Colour Radiance Express Treatment Conditioner
It is always hard to tell with these little samples but this did make my hair feel incredibly soft so I might have to look into this...

Too Faced Glamour To Go Palette
I used to absolutely LOVE this palette and I still would but this is really old and the eyeshadows have actually started to get really lumpy...which is really gross so I have to say goodbye, it was fun while it lasted. (Lets not even talk about the lip glosses in this palette, they died a long time ago!) The colours are really wearable and versatile though so I will miss using this palette.

The Body Shop - Honey & Oat Scrub Mask
This is a great product for anyone with dry skin as it is really hydrating and thick. It contains little oat pieces which help to exfoliate your skin in a really gentle way and this mask also smells amazing which is a plus. I highly recommend this.
