Empties: November and December

Hi everyone,

This is the final post on my blog relating to 2017, that year really flew by (don’t worry not going to give the same speech everyone else does).

Differently from an earlier post I have decided, 2018 will have empties posts but not Project Pan posts. This year’s project pans demonstrated that that approach just doesn’t work for me. However, I have found counting empties extremely motivating.

Biore charcoal pore strips (£6.29): These are the only pore strips that I use and the only ones I will recommend.

Patchology Flashmasque illuminate 5 minute facial sheets (£6.00): I am honestly really torn with this one. It was good but it didn’t wow me so I think for now I won’t be purchasing the big box.

Sephora rose face mask (£4.81): This one is the better out of the two hydrating sheet masks Sephora does. It leaves the skin soft and I would say for the price I would purchase it again.

L’Oreal fine flowers normal to combination skin cleansing wipes (£1.95): These ones are better than the ones for dry skin which I wasn’t expecting. The scent is still floral and quite strong so I wouldn’t recommend for those with sensitive skin. Overall, these are okay but they aren’t my first choice.

Garnier moisture bomb (£7.99): This moisturiser is okay but it isn’t supposed to be used near the eye area, and that suggests it’s not good for sensitive skin. I will not repurchase this as it isn’t hydrating enough for my skin type.

Superdrug 50 cotton wool oval pads (£1.99) and PS…Love this 100 oval cosmetic pads (90p): I purchased and used up the Superdrug ones when I couldn’t get my hands on the PS ones. Those of you that regularly read my empties posts will know that I only use cotton pads other than the PS ones when I can’t get my hands on them. Really cheap and more for your money, what more could you want.

Glossier milky jelly cleanser sample (FREE): This is a super gentle cleanser that I think is good for those that only want to cleanse their skin and use targeted products afterwards for their other needs. I have got the full size now and haven’t tried it enough to have a solid opinion but I do stand by my statement above.

The Body Shop Spiced Apple shower gel 250ml (£2.50): This has a great scent for around the Christmas season and I have a 50 ml bottle still in my collection. I am interested in trying out other scents from the Body Shop, as I enjoy the fact the formula is slightly on the thicker side. Giving it a more expensive feel.

The final totals for 2017 are 294 items at a retail value of £1669.08! I am very proud of those figures. For 2016 I achieved 172 items at £691.19, which is astronomically different to this year. I don’t think the 2018 figures will be more than 2017 but I can hope they will be similar.

Until the next time,

Lauren x
