Recent Empties

Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap // This is such a fantastic multi-use product and one that I repurchase regularly. I use it to clean my brushes (it is the best brush cleaner I’ve used), as a household cleaner, a hand wash and also to clean the dogs! I’m already using a new bottle of this.

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask // This was included in a Tata Harper Skincare set (Tata’s Daily Essentials), that I bought from Content Beauty. I had always wanted to try some Tata Harper skincare, but it is on the pricey side. This was a great way to try various products before deciding whether to commit to a full-sized version. This Resurfacing Mask is the first product from the set that I’ve finished; to be honest, I haven’t been bowled over by anything from this sample collection. The mask was pleasant enough to use, but I have not been left wanting to try the £47 full sized version.

Pai Skincare Pure Hydration Avocado & Jojoba Day Cream // I’ve used this almost every day since December and have loved it! It’s everything I want in an every day moisturiser. I would have repurchased this immediately had I not been sent the Terre Verdi NeroliPom Moisturiser to try, which is giving this a run for it’s money!

Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Soft Focus Founation // I’m pretty sure this was the first natural/organic foundation I bought. I was impressed and loved using it. However, my curiosity to try new products has meant that although this is in my empties, I haven’t used it to the end and I think it’s past it’s best now. This foundation has a really good shade range, suitable for pale to dark skin tones. I haven’t used this for a while now, but from what I can remember, it’s pretty light coverage (although it’s described as medium to full – hope my memory is right!) that leaves skin with an illuminated glow.

*I have just found my ‘First Impressions’ post for this, you can read it here. I now want to buy it again!

TEWC Regenerating Rose Face Moisturiser // This was one of my holy grail products. A simple, every day moisturiser suitable for mature skin. However, I think both the Pai and Terre Verdi moisturisers have over taken this. I do like the lightweight packaging which is much better for taking with you on your travels and it is not too expensive at £16 for 40g and still one I would recommend.

Pixi Glow Tonic // Now, I know this is not a green beauty product. I really deliberated over using it (and including it in this post)! I like to read skincare expert Caroline Hirons blog posts and she loves an acid! This has 5% glycolic acid and I really think it helped to reduce the milia I have. I only bought the small bottle, but I am very tempted to buy another one.

I did a bit of Googling for a natural alternative and started to use a mix of apple cider vinegar and water on a cotton pad. Apple cider vinegar contains naturally occurring acids and I’m sure works very well. It just smells so bad!

Pacifica Stunning Brows // Although I’ve used this to the end, I’m still unsure what I think of it! This clear gel did a great job of making my brows look more groomed, I’m just not sure how long it kept them in place. I think it’s hard to find a product that works, without leaving your brows feeling ‘crispy’. I’ve just bought the Jane Iredale Brow Gel in shade Brunette. I’ll let you know how I get on with this.

Terre Verdi Acqua Di Rosa Balancing Mist // I love using a facial mist as part of my skincare routine. I can’t claim they ‘do’ anything to my skin, I just love the refreshing feeling of them. This is a travel sized bottle which I have already replaced with the full sized version. Another great product from Terre Verdi.

What have you used to the end recently?
