Empties #2

I can't believe how long it has taken me to write up this post! I took these photos awhile ago and have almost built up enough empties since then for empties #3! Bad blogger I am. Anyway I am finally getting round to it, so here are some products I have run out of, I will go through each one and let you know my thoughts and if I will be repurchasing. I find empties posts one of my favourites to read so I hope you enjoy this :)

1. Dove- Summer Glow £4.99 I am a huge, huge, HUGE fan of gradual tanners, yes I did need to say huge that many times, and its safe to say I've tried quite a few. Dove is definitely one of my favourites. This is a moisturising body lotion with a subtle self-tanner which gradually builds up a natural looking tan. This comes in fair to medium skin, or medium to dark, I have tried both and I prefer the darker of the two as I feel it provides a better colour. It smells gorgeous and doesn't have that sometimes strong fake tan, the only negative I can give is it takes awhile to dry as it is quite a think lotion.

2. Garnier- Summer Body £5.36 Although this is slightly more expensive, it is my favourite of the two. This also comes in two shades and I go for the 'Deep Sun Kissed Look'. I prefer this as it is a slightly thinner formula so blends into the skin so quickly and you don't have to sit around waiting for it to dry. It also smells like apricot which is absolutely gorgeous. This gradual tanner blends so well into the skin and fades well with no patches. I will definitely be repurchasing this! 

3. Radox - Pink Grapefruit & Basil Shower Gel £1.00  I  know shower gel isn't the most interest thing to talk about but I have included this as it is one that I have really been loving recently. It smells absolutely gorgeous, the grapefruit is so refreshing and the smells really lasts after you come out of the shower. As well as this, I find the packaging and look is a bonus, I love the pink colour and the fact that it has a handle and opens at the bottom is very convenient. I have already repurchased this. 

4. Garnier- Micellar Cleansing Water £4.99 So I have recently jumped on the micellar water bandwagon and I am so glad I have, I can see what all the hype is about! This micellar water by Garnier is amazing. I often struggle with eye makeup removers as I have quite sensitive eyes and it can sting, but this doesn't sting at all so I really recommend it to anyone with sensitive eyes or skin. I love the fact that it has no perfumes or harsh ingredients, it removes make up quick and easily with no need for rubbing hard. I will definitely will be repurchasing this when I run out, the bottle seems to last forever which is great as well.

5. Nivea- Moisturising After Sun Spray £7.00 I know summer is over and we aren't really using after sun anymore, but I have to mention this one and make sure you remember it for next year if you like the sound of it. This aftersun has Aloe Vera, so first of all it smells amazing, but most importantly it cools the skin instantly when applied which is such a great feeling after you have been in the sun. It absorbs into the skin really quickly so no need for forcing rubbing which can be horrible if you have sun burn. I used this every day whist I was on holiday and it is well and truly my favourite aftersun and I will definitely be purchasing this for next summer. 

6. MAC Viva Glam Lady Gaga Lipstick £15.50 It's always a sad time when a MAC lipstick runs out, and the latest one to run out for me is Lady Gaga. This is a very light, baby pink shade and is a very creamy formula. As you can probably tell I am a big fan of this shade, I run out of it very quickly. The colour may not be for everyone as it is very girly and barbie like, but if you are into this like this you will definitely love it. It is great quality as well, with great staying power, definitely one I will be purchasing again if I can get my hands on it. Not sure if its still stocked, if any ones knows please tell me!

7. Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation £7.99 Unfortunately I am not a fan of this foundation. There's probably nothing wrong with the product itself, I'm just quite fussy and find it very hard to find a foundation that works for my skin. I found it slightly hard to blend into my skin and it took longer than other foundations. I also found it rubbed off after a few hours, but this can happen with oily skin. Saying this, I did manage to use up the whole thing as I don't like just leaving it, so it's not that bad really! I just can't say I'll be repurchasing it. 

So that's the end of my second in my empties series! Have you tried any of the products I've mentioned? What do you think of them?
