Empties Part 1- Cleansers

Hello friends. If you wish to know what products I use in my daily routine that gives me near perfect skin, then my next few posts are a must read😊. 

I have loads of products I have used up and I have decided to divide them into categories and will be showing you my empties in parts. 

The first part contains all my cleansers that I have used up, be it morning cleansers, night cleansers / balms, makeup removers, etc. 

The Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm and the Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm are both essentially the same and I love both. Pixi is way cheaper of course so if you are on a budget, then this is definitely close to the amazingness that is Emma Hardie. (Ready my review here pixi nourishing cleansing balm review) They are used at night as a second cleanse and I wipe off with a face towel. Both can be found online at www.cultbeauty.co.uk

The MV Organics Gentle Face Cleanser is my first MV Organics product. I decided to try this brand because my sister raves about it. I used this cleanser in the morning and it is so gentle and does not dry the skin. 

I have reviewed the Vichy Purete Thermale before (Vichy Purete Thermale Review)  and it’s my favorite eye make-up remover and already almost finished with my second bottle. 

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel and the Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser are both amazing morning cleansers. Out of the 2 however, I would pick Oskia as my personal preference is a gel cleanser. Both have been repurchased several times. Both can be found on www.cultbeauty.co.uk.  

And last but not least, I have lost count of how many bottles of the Body Shop Chamomile Oil cleanser I have used and will continue using. I use it to remove my makeup every single night as a first cleanse. 

Read about my holy grail cleansers which I blogged about before on empties-my-holy-grail-cleansers

Stay tuned for more Empties post and please comment if you want me to post about anything in particular or any skincare review. 

Vichy Purete Thermale waterproof eye make-up remover- Review

When I have heavy eye makeup on, I make sure I take it all off using a dedicated eye make-up remover before I remove my face make-up using my oil cleansers. 

I am onto my second bottle of the Vichy Purete Thermale waterproof eye make-up remover and it is brilliant. I have always hated waterproof eye make-up remover- in general because they are so oily and hated the feeling on my eyes. This one is relatively lighter, and takes everything off with 1 or 2 swipes of a cotton wool. It also doesn’t sting my eyes. 

Boots usually has amazing offers which is when I stock up and this is an excellent alternative to other more expensive eye make-up removers in the market. 

Anyone a fan of the Vichy Purete Thermale? What products do you use to remove your eye make-up? 

Vichy Idealia BB Cream- Review

Hello everyone.  I know this BB cream is quite old and was released a while back but since I heard one particular blogger I admire rave about this, I decided to give it a try.

Firstly, the Vichy Idealia BB Cream contains SPF 25 which is great as I just use this after my moisturizer and I’m good to go, eliminating the need to use a separate spf. It is also paraben-free which is a plus point. It’s quite scented so for those of you are bothered by scented products, you might not like this.

This BB cream applies smoothly, feels hydrating and is a beautiful texture (not too thick and perfect for all skin types). As you will see from the swatch below, it gives a beautiful, natural glow and what I noticed is that it photographs beautifully. It does not really require to be topped up with a powder, however I do need a touch of powder on my t-zone after about 5 or 6 hours of wear.

I have been using it every single day for work ever since I bought it and I love it. Although it is a drugstore brand,  it is not too cheap. I bought it for Dhs 170 from Boots. Unfortunately, it comes in only 2 shades- Light and Medium. I got the Medium shade which fortunately matches my skin tone perfectly.

Have any of you tried this BB cream? What are your thoughts? What is your favorite BB/CC cream?

October Empties

This month of October I have finished 4 amazing products that I literally can’t live without and already have back ups of.

Firstly the Nuxe Dry Oil is my favorite body oil because it’s light on the skin, leaves my body feeling smooth and soft and also smells wonderful. I like using it at night mostly before bedtime.

Acid toning is the most important part of my skincare routine and 2 products that give my skin a healthy glow is the Alpha H Liquid Gold as well as the Zelens resurfacing facial pads. I alternate between these two every night and ever since I started incorporating these 2 products into my routine, my face has become brighter, smoother and almost poreless. For Zelens, the only drawback is that it is too expensive as are all other Zelens products (my favorite skincare brand).

Lastly, a product I didn’t expect to fall so much in love with is the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum. I use this every morning before my moisturiser. This is the best hydrating serum I have ever tried and nothing beats it. Too bad we can’t find it in Dubai. I ordered mine from Lookfantastic.

Let me know what products you have recently finished and your thoughts. Would love to hear your opinions.
