Products I've Used Up / Empties

New week new blog post and today is my first empties blog post . I personally love theses blog posts its nice to see what products people have used up and if they would repurchase them . This empties blog post is full of skincare and fragrances .(How many times can I say blogpost in one post ? Blogpost , blogpost , blogpost )

Bioderma Hydrabio Riche
I really like the Bioderma brand . This moisturiser is no exception . Very moisturising but has a nice lightweight texture . Great for very dry or dry skin . Works well under make up . Keeps your skin moisturised throughout the day . I would repurchase .

Matis Moisturiser
Sticking to the moisturisers this has to be one of my favourite moisturiser I have ever tried . Sadly its harder to get your hands on here in Ireland and the size I have is the beautician size which can be only bought in a salon/beautican service shop .  It almost feels like a moisturiser and primer combined .It makes a nice smooth surface for your foundation to be applied on top of . Its not too heavily scented . Lasts a long time and really makes a noticeable different to your skin.

LOreal True Match
So its finally here , what I think of the ever so popular Loreal foundation 'True Match' . I really like the finish of this foundation when you first apply it , it has a matte finish but its not to matte where your skin looks dry and dull . It looks lovely in photos but after a few hours of wearing it I notice it gets quite  patchy . The only thing that stops this is primer so I definitely would recommend applying primer or even moisturiser underneath maybe even some setting spray too.Its not the most buildable of foundations because it can tend to get cakey . Also it transfers onto clothes like no mans business . Some good things and probably more bad things to say about this foundation , not a completely awful foundation but just not my cup of tea .

Dolce en Gabanna Light Blue- Eau de Toilette
So sad this perfume is all gone , I tried saving it for summer but that didn't quite go to plan ! Its the perfect summer scent , fresh flowery , lemony goodness !

Matis Cleanser
Yet another matis product , its a great french brand ! My skin when using all there products together was at its best , hydrated and glowing . Removed my make up effortlessly and left my skin feeling moisturised .

Matis Toner
There is nothing like cleaning your face with a cleanser & toner . There the perfect pair and I always feel like I am really getting rid of any make up on my skin and leaving no resdew . Toner removes any traces of make up / oils on your face and leaves the skin feeling revitalised .

If you have sensitive skin the Matis delicate skin range might be more suited to you .

Lanvin Eclat - Perfume
I got this as a gift and although I wore it and liked it I would have never picked it out myself . Its not my usually fruity , sweet perfume . Its more of a floral scent .

St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mouse - Dark
This is also just run out on me , it isn't featured in the picture because the bottle has tan all over it and I couldn't have it wrecking my picture , haha. I have been using this tan for a few years now and I love it . I find it quite a fool proof tan , I usually put it on quite carelessy, shower it off the next day and it usually comes out even . Cons would be it does have that tan smell , transfers on to anything white and while stain your clothes if you spell any on it . Pros would be the price (such good value) , the fact you can see where your applying it , the fact that it says its a dark tan & actually is and the fact that its available in loads of shops here in Ireland . It really is one of those love/hate products though I know people who swear by it and people who hate it .

Thanks for reading ,

  1. Absolutely love your posts... Amazing! and so many good products and reviews.
    Thought it would be great to nominate you for the Liebster Award, hope you check it out and join in.


  2. Great post, that scent sounds lovely!

  3. My L'Oreal true match gets patchy on me too, so I prefer the true match lumi (which I need to buy in my summer shade)


    1. Funny you say that because I recently bought it and am trying it out today for a first impression blog post , so far so good :)
