Recent Empties!


I haven't blogged my Empties in a really long time, so here are the finished products that I could find, and if I come across any more I'll either throw them out or put them in next month's lot if they are worth talking about. I'm trying to de-clutter the house, so it will be great to actually throw this lot out once I've blogged them! On another note, I have a Giveaway coming soon so keep an eye out for that!




Alpha-H Liquid Gold
Love love love this stuff and I already have another bottle on the go! I use it the night before a special occasion, because it really gives me a brighter, better-looking complexion. I will always re-purchase this, but I wait for various discounts or offers!
Re-purchase? Yes

TN Dickinson's Witch Hazel
This is another staple in my skincare routine and I love that it's so cheap, because I can always stock up, guilt-free! Having said that, I've just bought a Tea Tree Toner from The Body Shop on sale, so I'll be using that instead for a while. But then I will.....
Re-purchase? Yes

Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder
This got low then broke up, but luckily I had already bought a new one in the Priceline 40% Off Cosmetics sale. This time I went for Light Beige instead of Natural though, which matches my skin colour more. Love this powder!
Re-purchase? Already have!

Darphin Exquisage Beauty Revealing Cream
I got this as a sample with an order or possibly in a Mecca Beauty Loop Box (thanks for playing along, memory!) and I really love it! Great results, felt good, no reaction, just an all-round great product. However I have too many other creams like this to use up, so....
Re-purchase? No

Uriage Aqua PRECIS Eye Contour Care
I really love this eye gel and found it to quite effective. My routine was to use this before bed, and my holy grail La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream in the morning. I won this tube and by a strange coincidence simultaneously redeemed my BeautyHeaven points on the same thing in a Beautorium, so I.....
Re-purchase? Already have a back-up!

Wotnot Facial Wipes for Normal/Sensitive Skin*
If you read my What's In The March Good Green Box? post, you'll know that these were in the Good Green Box! It only contained five wipes, so they are gone, baby, gone. I loved the smell of these and how gentle they were. I'm pretty interchangeable with my wipes though, so I will probably grab something else next time.
Re-purchase? No

Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
This is a tiny little sample tube that weirdly took forever to use! It had a surprising firm jelly like consistency that sort of was squishy but held together. It soaked in easily enough though and I enjoyed using it. But again I have too many other similar products in my stash to use, so....
Re-purchase? No

Lush Lord Of Misrule Shower Cream
Or shower SCREAM if you go by the most amazing product typo I've ever seen! OMG, this was 50% off in the Boxing Day sale and I have taken forever and a day to use this up. It actually expired in January this year and there were little grainy bits in it. Despite transforming me into the Incredible Hulk's shower double, I will give this bright green cream a miss and concentrate on using up my shower gels instead.
Re-purchase? No

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub-Gelee
I loved this scrub! The fragrance was amazing and the formula was spot on! I found it refreshing and fun to use and would look at getting it again in the future, but I have enough other scrubs in my stash to work my way through first.
Re-purchase? No

Sally Hansen Color Therapy Manicure!*




Hello! I hope you all had a lovely, relaxing Easter break filled with chocolate eggs, hot cross buns and lots of family fun! I relaxed to the max, and took my sweet time getting around to my latest manicure, which is what I'll be featuring today.

This is Pampered In Pink (290)* from the newly released Sally Hansen Color Therapy range. It's a really pretty and vibrant pop of bright pink and I'm so in love with it, not only for the gorgeous colour, but also because this is only one coat. I was all ready to apply the second layer, but this formula provided a super-even coverage and was totally opaque after one coat. It's a lovely glossy finish, too. Winning! So I thought I'd leave it there and see how it wears.



What's unique about this Color Therapy collection is the Argan Oil formula. Sally Hansen say that it's 'colour that cares while you wear.' It claims to provide instant moisture, intensive nourishment and up to 10 days wear. This couldn't come at a better time because as you can see my nails are on the short side. I've had so many breakages lately I nearly bought one of those plastic nail wheel things to paint the polish on for my blog posts instead of featuring my own less-than-brilliant talons. But I really wanted to show you this polish, so my nails it is!






I was lucky enough to be sent four shades in the Sally Hansen Color Therapy range; below is a photo I took of them altogether. They are, from left to right; Primrose And Proper (240)*, Soothing Sapphire (430)*, Pampered In Pink (290)* and Blushed Petal (190)*.



They are available for purchase in Chemist Warehouse, Priceline, Target, Kmart, Coles and Woolworths.
