June Empties

This month I have used up quite a few essentials.

MAC Brush Cleanser which is definitely an essential. When I was younger I was really bad about cleaning my brushes and just used baby wipes when they were proper minging - how I didn't develop a serious skin condition is beyond me. Now I deep clean my brushes weekly and use this to keep them clean and sanitary in between. I actually love the smell of this too, smells reassuringly alcoholic  This has lasted me over a year and have already repurchased.  This is available from for £9.50.

Sanctuary Body Scrub as you guys know I love scrubbing my skin and this is a favourite of mine. Its rough enough to feel like its removing your dead skin cells yet gentle enough to use daily. It is also has orange oil so doesn't leave your skin feeling dry. I have a full size stashed away but would definitely repurchase.  You can buy the 50ml travel size from for £2.50 or 200ml for £5.50 here.

Molton Brown Ultrasmooth Coco De Mer Body Lotion first up this smells gorgeous it is by far the best scent that Molton Brown do. The first time I used this was on holiday and it just takes me back. I was saving this for special occasions - does anyone else do that. But my lovely boyfriend bought me two full size bottles after he had to go away for work. This is quite thin but is still very moisturising and did I mention how good it smells.  You can buy 200ml for £18 from

No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream in Normal/Dry I bought this in the January sales along with some other No7 skincare. This is an alright moisturiser it wasn't holy grail but nothing wrong with it. I liked that it had a SPF and didn't leave my skin feeling greasy. I would purchase this again if I had a No7 £5 voucher, as I think for a basic moisturiser this is fine.  This is available from for £12.50 for 50ml.

Benefit B'Right It's Potent Eye Cream I have really fell in love with this product, it's the only eye cream were I have actually noticed a reduction in my dark circles. I will be buying the full size of this as soon as I use up all my other eye creams. I have written a full post, which you can read here.

No7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream in Normal/Dry another mini product, which I got in the same set as the day cream. Unlike the day cream I was seriously underwhelmed by this, I really don't think it did anything. I just don't think that this was hydrating enough, in the morning my skin didn't feel hydrated at all. I wouldn't purchase this again. This is available from for £13.50 for 50ml.

Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Mascara the only makeup product and it isn't technically empty but has dried out. I really liked this mascara as it can be worn both day and night. I do think that it dried up quickly but mascara isn't a product you should be keeping for months on end.  I would buy this again and have written a full post which you can read here.

Cutex Moisture Guard Nail Polish Remover I bought that as it claims to 'protect nails against breaking' I can't say that it helped mine. It was ok at removing normal polish, not so great on glitter. It also claims to include a nail whitening formula, as I don't leave my nails unpolished for long I can't say I noticed. You can get this from for £2.20.

What have you guys been using up?
