Beauty empties

I used to do these posts every so often, quite a few years ago now - but it's been a while. I do often share #instaempties on my Instagram stories one at a time, but I had multiple products that ran out at the same time (typical) and thought I'd throw them into a blog post instead. So here's a bunch of beauty products that I've used up, and what I thought about them.

Redken Diamond Oil*

Oh my god I'm obsessed with this. I've had it for years - it was sent to me ages ago, and I reviewed it HERE then. It leaves my hair feeling soft and sleek, less frizzy than normal, without the need for heat or extensive styling. I'm so lucky to have been sent another bottle because the team at Redken are amazing, and when this runs out it'll be straight in my online shopping basket! get it here

Bonté body lotion

I don't actually use body butter or body lotion very often, because I can't really be bothered. But I do like this for a good old back rub - it doesn't sink in too fast and it's thin without being drippy. Plus the scent of this is honestly to die for. You can only really get this in Spain as far as I know, but if you do see it then pick it up.

Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Treasure Conditioner

For a conditioner you can readily pick up in the supermarket, this is so decent - it smells lush, leaves my hair feeling nice and soft, and you don't need too much of it. There's not much else to say, really! get it here

Pixi Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel*

I love the Pixi Glow range - to be honest, I love most of their skincare products. This is such an easy second-cleanse, or one I use in the morning. It leaves my face feeling SO fresh, doesn't make it all red and blotchy like some cleansers do, and it has a lovely smell too. I'll definitely be repurchasing this one! get it here

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream*

This is another product I've had for years. It's such a gorgeous moisturiser, so thick and sinks in quickly without being greasy. It doesn't irritate my skin or cause me to break out, and while it might be expensive I do think it actually could be worth the money. get it here

Dove Nourishing Secrets Deodorant 

I bought this a while back and have been using it because I hate waste but honestly, I've given up. It goes all white and flaky if you accidentally spray it on the wrong angle, and it doesn't even work. TMI, maybe, but a few times I've noticed that I don't smell as fresh as I could which is just SO ANNOYING. So yeah, this isn't actually empty but it's going in the bin.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

I don't tend to use dry shampoo often, and if I do buy it I go for Batiste or - if it's on offer - the Colab one because it has really funky packaging. But I got this in a Glossybox ages ago, and it's absolutely unreal. It smells amazing, genuinely works and looks sophisticated in your beauty collection. But it's pricey, so I'm umm-ing and ah-ing over buying it again! get it here

Pantene Pro Foam Conditioner

I bought this for something like 79p in Home Bargains when I needed a new conditioner, and bloody hell - for that price, it's worth stocking up on. It smells salon-y and grown up, genuinely conditions your hair without leaving it feeling heavy and doesn't make it greasy either. A really brilliant bargain product so if you spot it in your local discount store, pick it up for sure.

So there's all the beauty products I've used up recently - I'll probably do another one of these in a few months so let me know if it's something you're into. 


  1. It's such a shame to hear about the dive deodorant normally they're meant to be really good! The pixi product sounds amazing too x

  2. I adore the Living Proof dry shampoo, it's just pricey otherwise I'd use it alllll the time xx

  3. Really want to try the foam conditioner! x

  4. I've been wanting to try the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream for a while now, but the price tag puts me off every time! And I'm tempted to purchase the foam conditioner after reading your post!

  6. I love CT Magic cream. It has a lovely smell.

  7. It always surprises me how many products people get through in these posts - I literally get through 1 bottle of something every 3 months haha! Some fab recommendations here though x


  8. I really do need to try something from Pixi! I'm glad you've said the Dove doesn't work, I was thinking of trying it but I won't if it's going to be a waste of money. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Ive been dying to try that living proof dry shampoo!

  15. I love seeing people's empties, I'm so nosey and actually finishing a product is such an achievement that I love seeing what people rated. Pixi products are amazing aren't they, just the best quality and not outrageously priced. I am so intrigued by the sound of the foam conditioner?! I've never tried one but it sounds fun!
