Empties of 2013

I'm currently hanging out on holidays at the beach and I'll have little to no Internet access so I'll have lots of scheduled posts coming up. I hope you are all having a lovely Christmas break!

So I'm not an empties kind of person. I really hate hitting pan on a product and do everything in my power to save a product if I think it is coming to the end of its life. Where other bloggers have multiple products they feature in a monthly empties post, it really takes me a whole year to achieve a similar result. Nevertheless, here are my empties for the year!

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub
I love Lush products, and this lip scrub is no different. It is ridiculously sugary and overpowering but it suits me just fine. It's effective for removing flaky skin on dry lips and I already have a back up!

Nivea Lip Balm Strawberry
I'm not really sure how I managed to use this up because I don't actually love the colour all that much. I find that it is a little fake and childish looking at times, but it doesn't really matter because I used it up and have many much nice alternative red shades as back ups.

Essence Clear Lash and Brow Gel
I've actually gone through about three of these but I didn't save the packaging. I love this brow gel, it is so cheap, works like a charm and is such a no fuss kind of product. I use this everyday and I won't be changing any time soon.

Simple Kind to skin hydrating moisturiser
I find it really hard to stick with one moisturiser because I always have so many options to choose from. I managed to use all of this Simple moisturiser up, so that must mean it was pretty good!

Garnier BB cream
I went through two of these Garnier BB creams before I'd ever tried the oily skin version. I thought they were good at the time, but now I use the oily skin version and I think it is so much better. I wouldn't buy these original ones again, but I use the oily one every day.

Dove Original Deodorant & Dove Pure Deodorant
I've used up more than two deodorants however they are multiple of the same ones, so I only included the two versions. I can't really tell the difference between one deodorant and another. As long as I'm not super sweaty and stinky, I don't really care what deodorant I'm using!

Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Shine control moisturiser
I wasn't a fan of this moisturiser because it smelled strange, was blue in shade and much too think for my liking. I definitely wouldn't buy this again because there are just so many amazing options out there these days.

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder
This is seriously the first real makeup product I've ever hit pan on so that is a little bit strange! I really love this powder and found it to be remarkably effective for keeping my face oil free during the day. I just wish it was a little cheaper.

I'm quite pleased with my empties efforts. Of course I went through countless shampoo and conditioners but they're boring to include! Maybe next year I'll have even more empties to include!


  1. So many empties - I can't believe you used up two of the Garnier BB Creams!

    1. I absolutely love the BB creams, though I am so much more impressed with the oily skin version. I can totally see this being in my 2014 empties post! x

  2. Hope you're enjoying your holiday, being by the beach sounds lovely, especially on a day like today when its going to be 38degrees herein Melbourne!
    I'm the same, I rarely empty products, mainly because I always have so many things on the go at the same time - so for me to do an empties post it would take me forever to get enough products to feature, and when I do empty a product I just want to get rid of the packaging to clear up some room in my already overcrowded bathroom!

    1. It was so lovely hanging out at the beach! We were lucky to have some hot weather too, perfect for swimming and snorkelling :) Oh I can totally relate to having twenty million products open all at the same time, it's ridiculous! It was really annoying keeping the empty packaging but I am glad I did so I could write this post :) x

  3. Nice empties. I recently hit pan on my powder too ;) Have fun at the beach!

    1. Thanks lovely, I had a wonderful time at the beach :) x

  4. I must try the brow gel! That is quite a lot of empties. I haven't been able to acquire any this month.
    Have a great holiday!

    1. The brow gel is such a good product, and for so cheap too. Empties are hard to get, especially if you are a real beauty fiend. x

  5. I know how you feel - when people post empties every month, I'm like HOW?! I love that a majority of this stuff is products you love & rave about constantly! Hope you had a great Christmas!

    1. Oh my gosh I know! How is it possible that they have so many products they finish every single month! Haha so true, I blab on about these products all the time! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and holiday too x
