Blogmas Day 17 | All Gone! Make Up & Skin Care Empties

Beauty Empties

Beauty Empties
I find it extremely satisfying when I use up something completely. I always tend to find that I'm half way through using something then I'll buy something new which I instantly love and then start using that instead so I have lots of half used products cluttering up my bedroom and bathroom. Here are the used up products, I warn you there's a LOT, that I've been collecting for the past few weeks to review.

Sienna X Fake Tan
I'm not ready to embrace my Winter skin just yet.. Sienna X is my favourite of all the fake tans out there, I find it looks so natural, isn't drying and smells lovely too. I brought 3 bottles at a beauty show in September and I used it on average once, twice at most, a week and I've only just finished the bottle. Great value for money!
Moroccan Oil
If you have dyed/dry hair then this oil will be your life saver! This has been a holy grail of mine for around 2 years and I couldn't be without it. This leaves my hair feeling so soft and healthy so it's fab for over-processed locks and dry ends. Even though it's on the pricey side it's well worth investing as no cheaper alternatives can compare and it lasts you months! This smells amazing too so you also get the salon experience at home.
Elemis Toner Apricot
I brought this in May and used it twice a day so I'd say that is pretty long lasting wouldn't you?! I love that this is a spritz so you can't use too much and waste product which I tend to find I always do when it comes to toners. I will be repurchasing this but in Lavender as that's better for a combination skin type.
TIGI Rockaholic Hair Spray
I planned on using this as a travel hair spray due to it's handy size, it held my hair quite well but it gave off quite a crusty/sticky finish which is a shame as I had high hopes for this! So I didn't waste it I just used this for when I had my hair in a bun for work.
Elemis Frangipani Body Oil
I already have another of these in the cupboard ready to use! I'm sure some of you are well aware that this is my favourite body product ever, everything about it is just perfection. One thing I do have to say though that I've found on numerous times is when you put it in the bath, to melt the oil, part of the red packaging floats off resulting in a half packaged half clear bottle. I wouldn't mind if it was cheap but at £31.50 I guess I was expecting something a little more durable.
ESPA Balancing Face Oil
 This is my go-to throughout Summer. This is amazing at balancing out the oils in your skin and is full of rich anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. This really is such a luxurious product and has that spa like experience at home. I've started their Replenishing face treatment oil now that it's Winter - I can't get enough of it! 
Elemis Toner Lavender
My Mum received this in a travel gift set and gave it to me as I have combination skin. I left this at Matt's house as I have a little collection of skin care products there for when I stay. LOVE it! It smells gorgeous and has really helped balance out my t-zone. I'll definitely be picking this up in full size.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
My HG of all concealers! Amazing, amazing, amazing. You can read my rave review here 
L'Oreal True Match Foundation
I feel like this is every bloggers favourite high street foundation and I can see why, it really is fab! This has become a holy grail high street foundation for me after seeing Lauren Curtis rave about it so many times!
Dove Deoderant
Hair Burst Tablets
The best thing since sliced bread! You can read my full review here
Elemis Rose & Jasmine Milk Bath
If you're after a real luxurious bath product then this is for you. The blend of Rose and Jasmine is heavenly - this is heaven in a bottle! Your skin feels so supple after that you need minimal moisturiser. I have a sample size here and it lasted 3/4 tubs so with their full size 400ml this would last you ages! It's very similar to their Milk Bath, which is a firm favourite of mine and I must admit I do prefer, this is just as gorgeous too though.
ESPA Bio Active Eye Cleanser
I've been on the hunt for an eye cleanser which removes mascara quickly, isn't greasy and is suitable for sensitive eyes - this is it and so much more! This does all of the above as well as hydrates your eye area and conditions your lashes. Love, love, love it!
L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara
I brought this after I saw Carli Bybel mention this was a holy grail item of hers. The design of this mascara wand is superb, it separates your lashes helping your to avoid any clumpy, spidery lashes making them beautifully long and fluttery! For a more indepth review you can read it here :)
