July Beauty Empties 2018

I'm currently clearing out everything I own to get prepared to move into my new house so it was the perfect time to put together an empties post! These are all the beauty products that I've used up over the last few months, I'll give you a mini review and let you know if I'd repurchase it again in the future.

This is probably the most talked about product from my empties posts, I love micellar water for quickly and easily removing make-up and this is a good one that also happens to be inexpensive, you can also find it on some kind of offer most of the time from stores like Superdrug and Boots. Micellar water is my favourite way of removing make-up when I'm feeling lazy, all you need to do is grab some cotton wool and sweep over the skin till everything is removed, you don't even need to rinse the skin afterwards although if I'm not feeling too lazy I do like to give my skin a quick wash before I go in with the rest of my skincare. I will for sure repurchase this again in the future.

I love Liz Earle products (as you will see as I have a few products from the brand included in this post), this is the second time I've had this moisturiser as my mum often buys me a Liz Earle set at Christmas and although I do like this moisturiser I wouldn't necessarily run out and buy it as I like other items form the brand more. This is lovely and nourishing and it leaves the skin feeling soft and hydrated, it's not overly fragranced so I think it would work well for those with sensitive skin.

This is one of my favourite Liz Earle products, it's definitely not a skincare essential but it's a lovely extra. This tonic is great for removing any final traces of make-up whilst soothing and refreshing the skin before you go in with your chosen moisturiser. This is one of the products I would buy again in the future.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (Limited Edition Rose and Cedrat)
Okay, so this is my favourite product from Liz Earle, I've spoken about it a few times on my blog (click here to read my full review of a selection of Liz Earle products). This cream cleanser breaks down all of your make-up and is easily removed to reveal clean fresh skin, there's a reason this cleanser is so loved/spoken about in the beauty community, it really works and is a pleasure to use. This particular one was in a limited edition scent, they release these quite often now especially at Christmas time. I have already moved onto a new tube of this and I will continue to repurchase it in the future.

This was the first time I had ever tried out this powder and I was fairly impressed, it's a fine powder that applies smoothly and doesn't make your make-up look heavy. The compact is cute but a little bulky although you do get one of those little compartments underneath with a little sponge for touch-ups on the go which is nice. I picked up the shade Fair/Light which worked perfectly on my skin, the powder doesn't have too much pigmentation so it shouldn't change up the shade of your foundation, I believe they have two other shade options to choose from. I enjoyed using this powder but I must say I prefer my Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder which is only slightly more expensive so it's not that I wouldn't repurchase this because there's nothing wrong with it I just prefer something else.

I have spoken about this eyebrow definer before and I have repurchased it a few times now, it's super inexpensive which I love and I use it on days when I feel a little lazier and want to quickly fill in my brows. This is a very soft retractable pencil and although I like it I think it would work best for those with naturally fuller brows as you won't get precise fine lines with this pencil so if you need to do a lot of detail work when filling in your brows then I would choose something else. I probably will repurchase this at some point in the future but not for a while as Brow FX recently sent me a selection of their products which I'm still working my way through, to read about those products click here!

Diego Dalla Palma Ciglione Mascara 
I got this mascara in my M&S Beauty Advent Calendar and I really liked it. It adds length and volume and gave that nice fluttery lash look but it does cost £17.50 which for me is a little expensive considering I can get other mascaras I like just as much for less than half the price so although I enjoyed using this I probably won't repurchase it in the future.

I also received a sample of this product from my M&S beauty advent calendar, as it's a smaller size I can't comment on any of its anti-ageing claims but this is a beautiful night cream that brightens the skin and leaves you looking smoothed when you wake in the morning. This retails for £26 which I would say is mid-range so I would consider buying this in the future as I did like it but as I didn't see any incredible results I won't be rushing out to buy a new jar immediately.

These are all my beauty empties for the month of July, I hope you enjoy these kinds of posts! I think it's great to revisit products once they've been used up to decide if you stick by your first impressions or not. Now that July is done it won't be long before the Autumn weather starts to creep in and I can't wait! It'll be interesting to see the change in the types of products I'm using up as the weather changes.
