Beauty Empties

Welcome to a new kind of post. I saw a lot of "beauty empties" posts on beauty blogs and I wanted to make one for myself but so far I didn't have the time to. Also did I collect some really random empties over the last couple of months and then I also found some make-up empties from 2011-2012 which I also wanted to include. From 2013 on however I'll try to keep my empties more regularly so I can see what I'm using over a year and which products were good and which were not. I hope that these kinds of posts will also be helpful (or at least interesting) for you guys!

Schwarzkopft 3 Wetter Taft Diamond Shimmer extra strong hairspray
Rebuy it? Yes! Why? Makes my hair shiny and isn't sticky.

Schwarzkopft Gliss Kur Asia Straight conditioner
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? Makes my hair super straight but I want to try more natural conditioners like the Lush ones for example.

Forever Living Aloe Scrub
Rebuy it? Yes! Why? The scrub is so soft that you can use it for face and body.

Forever Living Sonya Eye Makeup Remover
Rebuy it? No! Why? It pricks in my eyes...

Uma Cosmetics Coconut Express nail polish remover
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? It smelled and worked nice but I prefer pump bottles by now. Full review here.

Maybelline Gemey Cils Demasq eye makeup remover
Rebuy it? Yes! Why? My favourite makeup remover so far, it works in 2 steps so you have to shake the bottle before using it.

Nivea Stay On cover stick
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? I didn't feel I need cover sticks lately and the colour didn't match my skin 100%

Manhattan Wake Up concealer
Rebuy it? Yes! Why? I already used up 3 of these and they are great, they match my skin tone and don't dry my skin out like others did.

Maybelline the Falsies Volume Express Black Drama mascara
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? It was good but my favourite mascara is the L'Oréal Million Lashes so I will keep on using that one until I find an even better one.

Yves Rocher Lash Pumping mascara
Rebuy it? No. Why? It doesn't allow to get dramatic lashes. Full review here.

Essence Black Mania mascara
Rebuy it? No. Why? I'm not a big fan of Essence mascaras.

Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara
Rebuy it? No! Why? Way to expensive and was only useable for the first few weeks and then started to dry out. Full review here.

Bac Aloe Vera Sensitive deodorant
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? It was nice to my skin and had a lovely smell.

Nivea Pure & Natural Action deodorant
Rebuy it? Yes. Why? Gorgeous smell and works fine.

Dove Purely Pampering shower gel
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? Nice smell, Dove shower gels are always lovely!

Gillette Satin Care shaving foam
Rebuy it? Yes! Why? My favourite brand for shaving foams, it used at least 10 of these already.

Garnier Body Tonic hydrating lotion
Rebuy it? Yes! Why? Works and is one of the cheapest of its kind. I have already been using 3 or 4 of these.

Bio-Oil body oil
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? It's very expensive and empty so quickly but I could imagine that it works nevertheless when you use it long enough...

Weleda Citrus hand cream
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? Smells good and is extremely moisturizing.

Source Mango body butter
Rebuy it? No. Why? Simply because I don't know where to buy it. I don't know if the brand is any famous but I think this body butter is about the same as the Body Shop one. I would thus buy a Body Shop body butter because it is a great product to use on your wet skin.

So that was it for my empties I've been keeping over all this time. Have you been using any of these products and if yes, did you like them or not? Have you been doing beauty empties posts? I would love to see them!


  1. in Spain there isn't the same cosmetics, I would love to have some of these!

  2. Check out my blog, I have international Romwe giveaway ! :)

  3. Hi Carmen, I like this kind of post since I find it very useful! Thanks for the info, I also used that make up remover and you are right! Kisses! xo

  4. Hi dear, i think this is an excellent idea, its always good finding out what other bloggers reviews are on beauty products, because it gives the rest of us a better idea on whether to purchase them or not. You have an extensive list here! Some of which id really like to try

  5. That's a good idea to control beauty purchases, I have really a lot mascaras for example, and I'm using only one right now! Thanks for sharing! <3

  6. Posts like these are great, I love to see what others use and buy, and it's very helpful. I've tried Lancome, and Agnes b. mascara and love those at the moment.

  7. Also love the Dove shower gels...

  13. Its indeed nice to know you've emptied so many!
    Manhattan Wake up concealer sounds great and yeah, Nivea does are awesome!!! I've emptied so 4-5 already!!! :)
    I'd love it if you visited my blog too when you find some time!

  14. Wow, as soon as something is empty, I throw it away. But the empties sounds like an interesting idea. Although I've seen all these products in shops, I only ever tried the Gliss Kur...
