3 months Beauty Empties

This year, I decided to do 3 monthly empties, just to see how many empties I could accumulate over a 3 month time period! I can finally share my empties with you! I’ve divided them into categories to make it easier to navigate! I will be sharing mini-reviews (for full reviews check out my review tab!) and the big hits and misses!

Be warned its a long post!


  1. Nivea MicellAir Micellar water– I found this to be disappointing. I love micellar water and I have made my way through most drugstore ones. This one left my skin dry and tight afterwards. I found I have to use a few large cotton pads for cleansing even when I am only wearing powder foundation! I got this in a buy one get one free offer and I’m more than halfway through my 2nd I won’t repurchase. There are more effective micellar waters available that don’t dry the skin
  2. Superdrug Natural Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser- this is a cream cleanser that feels butter smooth on the skin. I’m actually surprised at how effective it was. Honestly, I was expecting much lol. It doesn’t dry out the skin or leave a residue.
  3. Clean Creamy Foam Hydrating Cleanser- my fav drugstore cleanser. Check out the full review here
  4. 2x Murad Essential C Cleanser– check my Instagram for a review
  5. L’Oréal Fine Flowers Gel Cream wash– full review here. Another great drugstore face wash
  6. Elemis Super Food Facial wash- I actually really liked this cleanser and I wouldn’t mind the full size. Gentle lather and leaves the skin clean without drying it out
  7. Beauty Pie Plantastic Apricot cleansing butter– I have a full review here
  8. Good Molecules Instant Cleansing Balm

Serums & oils

  1. Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting serum- full review coming soon.
  2. Elizabeth Arden Superstart skin booster- I have another bottle of this and I will do a review soon
  3. Inkey List Hyaluronic acid serum- I LOVE this. Non-tacky, hydrates and leaves the skin plump and hydrated. Can’t wait to repurchase! The review is on my insta
  4. Superdrug Simply Pure Hydrating serum– for a £3 serum this serum packs a BIG punch. I have repurchased so many times and it hasn’t failed me!
  5. The Ordinary MAP– repurchased several times and will keep doing so!
  6. Drunk Elephant B Hydra- just check out my review here
  7. Estee Lauder Advanced night repair– full review here
  8. Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules- I have another travel size of this to finish so I can form my full opinion on it


Face creams

  1. Beauty Pie Super Retinol Moisturiser– I have a full review here
  2. Beauty Pie Daily Moisture Lotion– full review here
  3. Clinique Moisture Surge 72 hr hydrator- this is beautiful. Beautiful texture and leaves the skin plump and hydrated
  4. Farmacy Honey Drop– another amazing moisturiser! I have a full review coming soon!
  5. Nivea Q10 plus Vit C sleep cream– full review here
  6. Kiehl’s SPF30- full review here


Face masks & sheet masks

  1. 7x sheet masks: Oh K! Brightening Gemstone mini masks– got this in the Debenhams advent calendar, I don’t see the point of these lol. They are mini face masks (why?) and com sin 8 mini pieces, I guess it’s good for targeted application but I prefer a full mask. Soap & Glory Radiance Booting Mask– this has vit c in it and promises to give glowy skin. It works and I really liked it! Forec Natural skin plan sheet masks- 5 pack- Aloe Vera, Cucumber, Blueberry, Honey and Pomegranate- I really liked these, I found them super hydrating and easy to use. I got these as a secret Santa present and I would love to repurchase them.
  2. GlamGlow Thirst Mud– one of my fav GlamGlow masks! This is a leave-on mask but I wash it off after 20 mins, leaves the skin so hydrated, glowing and smoother!
  3. Soap & Glory Puffy Eye Attack eye patches
  4. Skin Sense Face mask- this mask was rubbish, it didn’t do much
  5. Superdrug Optimum Midnight Moisture Mask- this is a leave-on mask but I rinsed it off. It leaves the skin soft and moisturised and doesn’t leave residue on
  6. Peter Thomas Roth 24k Gold Mask– this luxury mask promises to lift and firm the skin. I found it hydrating, easy to wash off and leaves the skin glowing. It doesn’t leave shimmer or a yellow tint on the skin but leaves it more radiant

Toners & face mists

  1. First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads- full review here
  2. Nip Fab Extreme pads
  3. Murad Rapid Resurfacing peel- I have another pad and will review once I used it as well. I have a good feeling though
  4. Garnier Rose Soothing Glow Mist- hmm, I do like the rose collection from Garnier because it’s a dupe of Pixi’s but this mist was subpar. It doesn’t spray in a fine mist which didn’t make it pleasant to use and it was ok.
  5. Kose Clear turn lotion in cotton pads
  6. Garnier Rose Soothing Toner- exact dupe of Pixi Rose Tonic. I really like this toner for hydrating and AM use.

Shampoos & cleansers

  1. KeraCare Care Honey Shea Co-wash- this smells amazing! I love co-washes and this one has quickly become a favourite. It has a lot of slip which makes detangling easier and also gently cleanses the hair. it also leaves my hair really soft

Hair conditioners

  1. Garnier Ultimate Blends Maple Healer Intense Repairer balm- I love this! and it smells great!
  2. 2x Cantu Cleanser & Care hair and scalp masque– full review here
  3. Vitale Hair Mayo
  4. Organix Coconut Curls Conditioner– full review here
  5. Philp Kingsley- I will do a full review when I finish my 2nd tube of this.
  6. Schwarzkopf conditioner


Hair styling & oils

  1. Got2b blast freezing spray- I mean you know what we use this for
  2. As I am Scalp serum- this promises to strengthen the hair but I honestly didn’t use it consistently enough to notice results. it smells great and hydrated the hair is all I can say
  3. Gorilla Snort Gel


  1. Clinique deep comfort body wash- this was a gift with purchase. I really liked this. Leaves the skin clean and comfortable with drying it out. it lathers and feels so creamy and velvety on the skin
  2. 3x Mitchum deodorant
  3. Soap & Glory hand food
  4. 2x Soap & Glory Righteous butter
  5. Sol de Janeiro Lip butter
  6. Nivea stick roll on
  7. Nivea Cherry Blossom body wash- this has an amazing scent and I lingers for a while. Leaves the skin clean and smooth without feeling tight


  1. GlamGlow Glowsetter setting spray– full review here
  2. The Ordinary High Adherence primer- full review here
  3. Makeup forever radiant primer


  1. Rihanna Rouge
  2. Lancôme La Vie Est Belle
  3. Beauty Pie Love perfume- I loved this so much I got the full size
  4. Beauty Pie Petals, Heliotrope & ambrette perfume


  1. 3x Primark makeup remover cloths
  2. Wet Ones hand wipes
  3. Boots Refreshing hand wipes
  4. Superdrug artificial nail remover
  5. 2x cotton pad packs
  6. 1x cotton buds pack
  7. Feather & Down pillow spray- this smells great and so relaxing! It actually works! It helps me relax and helps me fall asleep! I was gifted this ages ago but I will definitely buy this soon

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?)
