Empty Products


  
Hello Everyone! I have seen a lot of these posts going around the blogosphere and especially video tags on Youtube. Some people may not find these posts interesting but personally I love reading them so I’ve decided to make one of my own as I had some empty products that I had recently used up. I hate wasting products and always use them up instead of just throwing them out, unless they are absolutely horrendous. I think these posts are a good idea because you have completely used up the product and have an accurate idea of what your opinion of the product is. I hope you enjoy reading about how I got on with these products!


Aveeno Moisturiser – I purchased the hand moisturizer and body moisturiser. The body moisturizer is lighter than the hand moisturizer but they are very similar. The best thing I found with these products is that they skink into the skin very quickly.  If you don’t like greasy moisturizer then this is definitely for you. They both last for a long time so are cheap and worth the money. Not too heavy on the skin but for me I prefer something that leaves my skin a bit more moisturized as I have extremely dry skin, but for normal to oily or combination skin this would be an ideal product to pick up, I would recommend it. I used this when I was fake tanning and it was perfect as I could apply it before applying the tan and it didn’t make it streaky.


Johnson’s Make-up Wipes (fragrance free) – Slightly to rough for my skin and I found that it made skin a bit irritated. At the beginning they took off makeup well and even stubborn mascara. The packaging isn’t great because the sticker which closes the wipes stopped working after a while so it was difficult to keep closed and the wipes were dried out towards the end. I would recommend storing any makeup wipes upside-down to bring moisture to top of wipes. I love the night time skin Johnson’s wipes much more as they smell nice and seem to be better at taking off my makeup.


Coco Chanel Perfume (eau de toilette) – This is a classic perfume which I bought in France a about a year and a half ago. It has a very strong fragrance so if I used too much it would give me a headache. If you are susceptible to headaches then definitely get the Eau de Toilette because the Parfum would be way too strong, and use sparingly. It is very expensive but has strong lasting power on the skin and you only need one or two sprays so it lasts for ages. It has pretty packaging and has an easy to use spray pump. It has an older scent to it, so I would recommend it for more mature women, but really anyone could pull it off.


Simple Eye Make-Up Remover – I haven’t much to say about this product as I wasn’t very impressed with it. On the upside it is affordable which drew me to it. On the downside you get what you pay for. The liquid felt cheap and slightly rough and my eyes became slightly irritated after all the rubbing. I have never been a massive fan of the Simple Skin Care range but I decided to give this a go as I have heard some good reviews on the product. I found getting off my eye makeup quite difficult and had to rub at my eyes to get off everything. I have used better eye makeup removers for a similar price, I won’t be repurchasing this product.
 

Nivea Cleansing Cream –  This is a very affordable product which I picked up as I was looking for a makeup cleanser which didn’t contain many nasty chemicals eg. parabens. I found it took off my makeup but it took a good few cotton pads to take all my makeup off. It left my skin feeling soft but I didn’t like that there was a residue left on the skin. It caused my skin to suffer as it clogged my pores and caused some spots. I would only recommend it if you are going to wash your face afterwards or if you like the feeling the product leaves on your face. I won’t be repurchasing this product.

Thank-you so much for reading!
