Empties #1


Liz Earle Brightening Treatment* | REN Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask* | ByTerry Touche-Expert Advanced | Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Oil Free

If you could see my current stock pile of empty products you would think that I am next in line to appear on Secret Hoarders. I have been keeping my empties for a fair few months in ‘anticipation’ of me making a grand return to YouTube. I say that as every time I sit down to film I turn in to a quivering wreck who doesn’t know how to say their name. Pathetic I know so until I learn to develop some YouTube balls I figured I would bring you an edited version of my most recent empties. This also shows the products I love enough to use down to the very last drop.

The first empty on the list is the Liz Earle Brightening Treatment Mask. I use this every single Sunday to brighten up my skin, get rid of any remains of the weekends antics and get my skin in tip top condition ready for the week ahead. I have already repurchased a new bottle of this as I can not be without it. The second mask that I have used up is the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. This is a pricey little bottle but my skin must have expensive taste as it loves it. I have a lot of detoxifying and purifying masks but this is the only one for radiance. At first I found the orange goo (best way to describe it I swear!) a little odd, but a couple of uses later and I was hooked. I’m waiting for pay day to roll into town before I can bag myself another one of these puppies.

Following on from my primer raves earlier this week my beloved Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Oil Free is on it’s last legs. I was trying to save this so I didn’t have to repurchase it until I was in LA but I have a feeling I won’t be able to wait much longer. This is a staple primer for me that helps my makeup to stay put all day. Finally the last product to have given up the ghost is my ByTerry Touch-Expert Advanced Concealer. This works a dream under my eyes and I’ve hardly touched my Bobbi Brown Corrector since getting it. It is really lightweight under my eyes and doesn’t crease, yet still provides coverage to hide the dreaded bags. I have been using the Nip + Fab CC Eye Fix in the mean time which is a pretty darn good substitute but I can already feel the ByTerry counter calling my name.

It’s always my luck that everything runs out at once (I think my Percy & Reed No Oil Oil will be next)  but hey it’s a good excuse to go for a browse at Space.NK :P

      It’s really great – worth the money in my books xx

  • I love that REN mask so much! I actually use it for longer than the suggest 10 minutes as I don’t have sensitive skin and I always notice an immediate difference.
