Summer Empties


My first ever summer empties post! I love reading/seeing/watching empties post across social media and the blogosphere so I decided to do one this summer but I have collected a lot of products over this month alone I decided to split them into two separate posts: one now and one at the end of summer.

I will link all the reviews I have done for these products, mine you I have a lot of reviews so please do check out my Review Index for reviews on these and more! Let’s get started



I don’t have a lot of empties for hair( so many half used stuff smh) but I have run out of a few of my favourite products!

Shea Butter Cottage Bentonite Clay – I love doing Clay washes once every month and Bentonite Clay is my weapon of choice. I really love how it makes my hair feel. I also use it for face masks too. If you haven’t tried clay masks you totally should! Review

Dark & Lovely 3 in 1 Shampoo- my 2nd bottle and so bummed I have run out of it! Read my full review on this and other products in the line here, the Billon Hair Potion is something I am using now, I’m on my second bottle and I hope to bring a review soon.

Palmers Cowash- another second bottle empty! I totally loved this over the Olive Oil Cowash. Read my thoughts on it here. Another great product from Palmers is the Manuka Honey Range, in particular, the spray leave in was one of my favourites, full review of the line here

Cantu coconut mist- I had a love/hate relationship with this product. Read my thoughts on it and reviews on other Cantu products here

Finally samples from Curl Harmony’s Curl Reviver and Beunique Mango Twist Styling Cream



I was gifted the Sukin Rosehip Oil Day Moisturiser and finally run out of it! Its 120ml so it lasted a really long time, I have been using it from October last year!

Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist- this will be my 3rd finished bottle of this stuff! I totally love this, read a review on it and other setting sprays here

Superdrug Vitamin E Refreshing Toner Mist- another product I had a love/hate relationship with. On some days I felt like it clogged my pores other days it was fine. Definitely won’t repurchase. Superdrug Micellar Water- my second bottle of this stuff and the 1st micellar water I ever tried! For a review of this plus of micellar waters click here

Gosh Velvet Primer- one of the 1st primers I ever used. I love this stuff. I have also had it for a while now so in the end, I had to pump out the last remaining product to throw away 😦  but it was very comparable to the Body Shop InstaBlur primer. Read reviews on primers here

Pixi Glow Tonic- first ever acid toner I used I totally loved it. Read a full review here. I got a dupe of this but it is so cheap& ineffective I had to look for another alternative. I would definitely repurchase this!

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Gel- another 1st timer with this product and make up removing gels in general. Loved this product and would definitely get a bigger size, a full review is here

Pure Micellar wipes- I love micellar technology so I had to pick these up and they didn’t disappoint! Full review here. It’s my 3rd finished pack!

Finally Avon Cherry Body Mist, a random lip balm, random hand cream I picked up in Spain and had for ages! Sure deodorant and the Clinique High Impact Mascara I have had for ages! I love mixing cocoa butter lotion in my shea butter mix for my skin, this one from Queen Elizabeth is an old fav!

That’s all for now, I can happily throw these out and start over again! I actually never knew how many products I got through in a month so it was really fun to do! I will definitely try and do more!

Which products have you been loving this summer? X

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?) So don’t be a stranger and SUBSCRIBE its free. I make sure I post regularly unless I have had a very stressful week/month. Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.
