The Empties Edit – Buy or Bin?

There is always a month where you seem to run out of your most used products and March has definitely been that for me. So I won’t mess around, let’s dive straight in! This month I have four products that I have emptied and want to tell you a thing or two about….

Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse 

This is the most repurchased item of all time for me and this tan is perfection. It’s on the pricer end of the tanning product spectrum, but it is worth it! I buy the shade ‘Ultra Dark’ and I can achieve a more natural glow with one coat or I like to go in with 2-3 for that ‘sat in the sun for hours’ tan during summer (but 100% DID NOT). This guy wears great and lasts me a good 7 days – keep in mind I live in a climate that is averaging 30 degrees most days). It comes off easy during the exfoliation process, goes on like a dream and dries super quickly – no sticky feeling. Wahooo!

Will repurchase…again and again and again. You get the idea!

Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream 

I can’t get enough of this! (can be purchased here if interested) I have went through it in a few months, which I think is great as a little bit does really go a long way. I’ve just recently repurchased it. I’m going to do a separate blog on my skin care regime, but I seriously love Dermalogica. I had some skin trouble a few months ago and I was trying a few cheaper options in skincare and it was really clogging my skin. Dermalogica provides beautiful, gentle products that deliver for any skin type.

This moisturiser is medium-weight to balance combination/dry skin. I’m a big fan of a lighter weight moisturiser, I’m not really keen on moisturisers that are thick and sit ontop of the skin. For extra hydration I like to add oils (a rose-hip or Dermalogica’s phyto replenish are both delightful). You are guaranteed these products contain no artificial fragrances or colors which make them perfect for sensitive or congested skin.   

Bioderma Micellar Cleanser

I’m a huge fan of Micellar water and use it pre-cleanse to remove makeup and get a fresh face. I’ve tried a few recently and this one is my number 1! Again, it’s at the pricer end but it really works guys (You can buy here). It takes off my makeup so much better than cheaper versions and doesn’t have a weird/gross smell like some of the lower end brands. Have and will continue repurchase #love. 

Bumble and Bumble Heat Protector/Primer

Straighten, curl or blow dry your hair everyday?? Your face isn’t the only thing that needs to be primed – so does your hair!! It’s so important to apply a primer/heat protectant to your luscious locks before styling with any form of heat tool. If you want to ensure your color stays vibrant and your ends moisturised, this guy is my number one top pic! I may be biased as I recommend anything from this brand, but this product in particular is something I have repurchased a number of times.

It smells delicious, does not leave your hair feeling at all oily and protects from any damage caused by heat! Win!!

Thanks for reading! Have you tried any of these products? I would love to know your thoughts in the comments.

Much Love

    I haven’t tried any of these yet! I just started using a little sample of the Dermalogica daily superfoliant and it’s amazing! I’m definitely keen to try more from the brand. Looking forward to your skin care post! 💕

    Great empties!!
    I have only used Bondi sands, so I’m keen to try this, your tan payoff is so natural and dark without looking orange at all.
    I’ve only used garnier but I will try bio derma as I’ve seen lots of great reviews too.
    How gratifying are empties!!
