My May Empties

So I've seen this type of monthly round up on a few blogs and Youtube, and as I've been trying to use up some of my makeup and skincare, I thought it would be a great encouragement! So on to the empties!

Clinique Turnaround Concentrate

I bought this on Wayne Goss' recommendation to try and combat backheads via salicylic acid. I don't think it was really that effective and I've definitely still got blackheads. It cost me $46 from a discount Estee Lauder shop and lasted about 5 months. I'm still on the hunt for something that'll get rid of blackheads without irritating my skin.

Revlon Colorstay Undereye Concealer in Light

I used to use this under my eyes, but I realised that it was just a shade or two too dark for me. I used it on my face after that and it works a treat. I now use the MAC mineralise concealer in NC15 for under my eyes and that is so much better (but pretty pricey)

Revlon Absolute C Radiance Moisture Cleansing Milk

This cleanser was really gentle and never left my skin feeling to dry or stripped. I don't think I saw any brightening or radiance effects though, so I've moved on to the Korres Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser.

The Body Shop Grapeseed Glossing Serum

I had had this FOREVER! literally about 5 or 6 years. The smell of it was really really nice, but I don't think it was that amazing in my hair. I think it might have had silicones in it too. I'm working through another hair oil at the moment, and then I want to try the Kerastase one.


The samples I used up were: Viva la Juicy Viva la Body Creme, Avene Skin Recovery Cream, Avene Eulage Rich Cream and the Elizabeth Arden Prevage Eye Advanced Anti-Ageing Serum.

The only product I would probably repurchase would be the Avene Eulage Rich Cream which was so hydrating and nice!

I'll be putting up my May Favourites soon, so look out for that!
