Empties: Botanics Micellar Water // Fcuk bodyspray // No. 7 Beautiful Skin hot cloth cleanser // Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation // Bleach London Rose shampoo
It's been a few weeks since I posted an 'empties' review and I've got through quite a few products since then. A lot of them have all run out at once but I have actually been using them for ages; isn't that always the way! I have mainly skincare items to talk about but also one haircare product which I have absolutely loved.
I reviewed the Bleach London rose shampoo in my haircare routine post here, and I had only used it a couple of times but I was really enjoying it. I have to admit that the more I used it, the more I loved it; I was using it every time I washed my hair and it really did lend it such a pretty pink tint. I will definitely be rebuying this and I also want to try the conditioner, it helped shake out any brassiness from the ombre and it smells amazing too; definitely an all around winner! My friend Steph gave me this bottle so I need to find out where she bought it from!
I definitely got behind the 'micellar water' craze and although I never bought the original one by Bioderma, this was a good dupe at about half the price. I did like this although I didn't feel it took my makeup off as well as I would have liked; it struggled with my eye makeup but was nice for toning and felt gentle on the skin.
Something that I've really got into as the seasons have changed is a hot cloth cleanser. I had this No. 7 one in my cupboard for ages but when I ran out of makeup remover I thought I'd give it a go. It's just lovely and I can't believe I hadn't used it properly before; it removed all my makeup really well and was so softening on the skin. I have been using this daily as a makeup remover and cleanser in one and following it with a toning spray as my skincare routine.
The fcuk bodyspray is something I've had in my bag and have just been using as a refresher mist during the day. It smells lovely, quite floral and it's also quite summery which is why I won't be re-buying it at the moment but it is definitely something I might choose again in the future.
The Bourjois foundation is probably one of the best high street foundations I've found; I posted here about a Seventeen one I'd bought in replacement but I wish I'd just repurchased this one as the Seventeen one is not working for me! I have gone back to an old favourite BB cream from Time Delay in the interim but I am watching for offers from the Bourjois counter to pick up another foundation as it was just so good; and also a great colour match for my skin too.
