Empties #1

I recently cleared out my makeup and skin care drawer again - yes I have a dedicated drawer. This obviously shows I own way too much! I don’t even use most of it. Anyways I found so many samples  which have been dumped in and never used. I thought it would be good to use a few of them as I might find something I like - an empties post sounded ideal. Depending on how this post goes down I will make it a series in the hope of downsizing my collection even more.
I got this sample so long ago and finally used it up, I am pleased with the results! I feel the title  of the product doesn’t really explain the purpose of the product well enough - it is basically a primer. I used this before my foundation and it makes your skin feel so smooth! It evens it all out as well as providing a god base for your foundation to stick to. I also noticed foundation stays on a lot longer with this product and it is perfect for those who have dry skin. 

This is another face primer. I can’t really say much on it in regards to it being a foundation primer though as it makes no difference to when foundation is applied on top of it at all but I did wear it on its own too and my face looked more even and brighter. For the price I don’t think I will be purchasing a full sized version.

Forever hyped! I actually love it too as it provides such a smooth base for your foundation but it broke me out so bad! It is quite shimmery so if you apply a matte foundation over it it will essentially turn into a dewy foundation.

I really liked this product. Aside from masking pores it is also suppose to reduce the appearance of fine lines which I found it did very well. This is especially great around the nose area!

I love the Frizz Ease range, I think people who don’t even have frizzy hair should still go out and try the products! This mask is a ‘treatment’ so you leave it on your hair for a couple of minutes and then rinse it off. It adds a lot of moisture back into your hair and repairs it. It makes your hair look a lot healthier and nourished! The great thing about it is that you can use it on coloured hair too. (this might not have been a sample, i’m not 100% sure!)

Herbal Essences shampoos are always winners; I have since repurchased this as it smells really good! I have noticed all the herbal essence shampoos also make your hair tangle free?!

This is such a great nourishing moisturiser, I know a few people who have eczema use it too and have found it soothing.

Another hyped product and I can see why. This hand lotion is lovely and really hydrates your skin but the strong lavender scent put me off a little. I’m so picky aren’t I?!

I got this sample at the start of last year and finally used it. This thick hand cream contains dead sea minerals and plant extracts and leaves your hands feeling super smooth. 

I am glad I downsized my make range again, it’s great finding the products you love again. I think writing empties posts will persuade me to finish off products rather than just going out to buy new ones! 20 mascaras anyone?!

Let me know what you think of this post? Do you often have a makeup clear out? 


  1. I can't believe you didn't like That Gal face primer! I got that same sample when I got The Porefessional, I love wearing them together! xx


    1. Oh I never tried wearing them together... Oh well if I ever come across the samples again I will try mixing the two! x

  2. Hehe, your not the only one who's struggling to downsize their makeup and beauty collection! My problem is that I'm always adding to it... Ooops!

    I have a huge stash of empties ready to blog about too and I think you did really well using all this stuff up.

    I have a few GOSH primer samples waiting to be tried out and I think I'm gonna love them! Never heard of the line perfecter one before reading this post though but it sounds awesome! xox

    1. It’s so difficult isn’t it? Especially what with being bloggers and wanting to review lots of makeup!

      It is so good, I love all of the GOSH makeup range. It’s affordable and still good quality. I think you’ll love the primer too x

  3. I absolutely adore Benefit's Porefessional, it is the most perfect primer in the world ha
