Product Empties #6

It's been a good two or three months since my last empties post and I've made it through a fair amount of products. I've got a good mixture of products going so I'll be separating them into categories.

First up is bath products. I've used more than this but some were from an online Lush order so no empty bags there but I made sure to keep the ones I bought in store.

Lush Floating Island Bath Melt
Honestly, I feel like I've gone on about this bath melt so much before on my blog. This is my favourite bath melt from Lush and that isn't going to change anytime soon. It smells gorgeous with a strong vanilla scent and leaves me skin so soft after a bath. Always a repurchase!

Lush Lava Lamp Bath Bomb
This was my first time using this particular bath bomb... Being totally honest, I didn't like it. It stained the bath afterwards more so than with other bath bombs, it definitely required a bit of elbow grease. Not a repurchase.

Lush Dragon's Egg Bath Bomb
Another first was this bath bomb from Lush. I didn't dislike it but I  also wouldn't class it as one of my faves. Probably won't repurchase.

Miss Patisserie Limelight Bath Ball
Since placing an order and using this bath ball, it seems to have been discontinued. I'm gutted as I really liked this. It looked stunning in the bath and smelt like a lemon Refreshers bar! What's going on Miss Patisserie?!

Miss Patisserie Rainbow River Bath Ball
This bath bomb looks very similar to Lush's Intergalactic. I prefer the scent of Lush's as that is peppermint and this one is Lavender but Miss Patisserie's looks more impressive in the tub. I think Miss Patisserie's bath bombs are slight more expensive than Lush's but I love both!

Batiste Dry Shampoo
I would not survive without some Batiste to see me through! The tropical scent is my go to but I'm not opposed to using any others.

Flint+Flint Moisturiser 3x
I got this in a Little Known Box last year and as a moisturiser, it works very well. It has a nice scent to it but I wouldn't say it's anything special... Especially considering the £42 price tag.

Simple Kind To Skin Vital Vitamin Day Cream SPF15
I suffer from dry, sensitive skin so Simple is a brand I always go back to. I love this day cream as it also has SPF and keeps my skin from feeling dehydrated. Always a repurchase.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
I got these in a  Look Incredible Box last year. I don't tend to use wipes when it comes to removing makeup so I kept this handy pack in my handbag. They came in useful from wiping swatches off my hands after visiting makeup stands on shopping trips.

Biore Deep Cleasing Pore Strips
Glenn has been obsessed with watching blackhead removing videos recently so this purchase was his request. I couldn't see much on the strips after removing which was slightly disappointing but my nose did feel nice and smooth.

Superdrug De-stressing Mud Mask
These superdrug face mask sachets are super cheap and do a pretty good job. I always like to pick up a variety of these when the collection in my drawer gets low.

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray
I love how affordable Makeup Revolution is and I know there's been a big hooha recently over their dupes but I'm on Team Rev here. I've never had any problem with the quality of their products and most people can't afford to splash out on high end products. The majority of my high end make up products come from beauty boxes, TKMaxx or I've used a gift voucher. This spray only costs a fiver and it works! You can't really go wrong.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
Rimmel is the only brand I trust when it comes to concealer, other brands tend to break out my undereyes in an allergic reaction. Not great as I don't really rate Rimmel concealers! I use the palest shade in this but it is still slight dark for my skin.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
This was my go to everyday mascara for work. It didn't leave my lashes clumpy, it just gave them a fuller, natural look.

Sleek Makeup Eyebrow Stylist
This was my go to brow product for so long but I probably wouldn't repurchase this. Since finishing this, I've switched to brow powder and I find it so much easier to work with.

This part might be a challenge for me, someone who sucks at describing perfume scents... So I'll be pasting in the official description!

One Direction You And I EDP
The fragrance is made up of splashes of fresh fruit and seasonal flowers, infused with an undertone of musk. Bright splashes of mango and refreshing grapefruit are combined with a heart of creamy osmanthus, exotic orchid and soft peony to offer a romantic signature that captures the peak of nature in bloom. Background notes of musk, indulgent praline and sandalwood blend to wrap the fragrance in smooth, seamless harmony."
Any perfume with musk is one I'm going to like and while this isn't up there in my favourite perfumes, I did reach for it quite often. I love One Direction perfumes, they smell great and they're quite cheap now they've been around a while. In fact, there hasn't been a One Direction perfume I've disliked.

Versace Bright Crystal EDT
A fresh, vibrant and floral fragrance Versace introduces the Bright Crystal. Delicate tastes of colourful and juicy pomegranate grains, lotus flowers and the enticing presence of plant amber, acajou and musk."
I've bought this a couple of times now and I really like it but not enough to immediately buy another now that I've ran out.

The Body Shop White Musk Libertine EDTI got this in a Cohorted box a while back and I loved it. The product itself seems to have been discontinued which is probably why it was in the beauty box. I love the scent of musk so this was an absolute winner.

Prada Candy EDP"
Magnified by White Musks, noble Benzoin comes together with a modern Caramel accord to give the fragrance a truly unique signature."
Another mention of musk... 
This perfume is one of my three favourites, I have to buy a back up when I start getting low. It's a very sweet scent, which I love. It just smells freaking delicious!

One Direction Between Us EDP
Between Us opens like a colourful and sparkling fruit cocktail with juicy mandarin and apricot nectar to energize and invigorate. The floral heart of the fragrance opens full of solar jasmine flowers and freesia while gardenia petals bring delicate intrigue. Patchouli brings mystery and sensuality while vanilla and golden amber indulge you in a seductive blend of candied sugar, revealing an outstanding fragrance."
This is another of my three favourites but the cheapest of the three. Considering the other two are Guerlain and Prada, One Direction are in good company. You can get a 50ml bottle of this for around a tenner so it's an absolute bargain. I don't know how much input the band themselves had in the making of this but good job lads, good job! I get so many compliments when I'm wearing this, I always like to point out what perfume it is as the look of shock on hearing who it's by is priceless.

Are you a fan of any of these products?
