Empties | More Haircare & Skincare

It's not been that long since my last Empties post but it's definitely given me a push to use up those products that have sat unloved with just a little bit left. These 6 products are a mixture of things that I've been using on a daily basis or made effort to use or use up. It's also a good chance to think which ones are truly worth repurchasing or which ones I could make do without.
Origins Make a Difference Rejuvenating Hand Treatment
I am not a hand cream person. For having dry skin on my face my hands are quite soft and I always felt hand cream was just greasy and not necessary for me. But with Coronavirus and the increased hand washing and use of hand sanitiser I started getting cracked knuckles. I found this hand cream stashed away and I'm sure it was part of a gift set years ago. I wouldn't buy it myself as it's expensive and I've probably got enough hand creams to last the next 5 years from gifts. However, I did like this. It helped with the sore, dry skin and has got my hands back to normal. Definitely a splurge product. 

For the past couple of years I've pretty much exclusively used Batiste dry shampoo, that was until I got a COLAB dry shampoo in a gift set for my birthday. This particular fragrance isn't available out-with the Christmas gift set but it did smelt nice. I was quite impressed with how well the dry shampoo worked. There wasn't much of a white residue though I don't mind it too much for helping to disguise my roots. I would buy another COLAB dry shampoo, the price isn't far off Batistes. 

Primark Hydrating Sheet Mask
In my last Empties post I used a face mask for the first time in a long time and decided I needed to make a more conscious effort to use more. This one was a little bargain from Primark and the perfect mask for a relaxing Sunday night pamper. I really liked how hydrating it was, my skin felt really refreshed after using it. The mask was also quite a comfortable fit, I didn't have to keep fixing it during the 20 minutes that I used it. I'll definitely buy another one.

Post-partum hair loss is real! I can't believe how much hair is in my hairbrush each time I brush it, how much comes out in the shower or how much Ollie seems to pull out when I'm just carrying him around the house! I wanted to do what I could to help my hair through it and having some vitamins to help from the inside seemed like a good idea. These are tasty so you certainly don't dread taking one each day. My hair hasn't grown loads but it still feels thick and healthy even though I'm losing lots. Unfortunately they're not cheap but I would buy them again.

Soap and Glory Hot Cloth Cleanser
I forgot this even existed. It was only when I was sorting out my skincare drawer that I found it tucked in the back. Somewhere through the years this product was discontinued, but let's face it I've had it since I was in uni and I graduated in 2013! This is a lovely creamy cleanser that works well to remove makeup and clean away the day. Although I can't buy this again it has reminded me about the Soap and Glory Ultimelt Hot Cloth Cleanser which I might buy whenever my Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser stash has disappeared.

This is one of those products that works really well but it's expensive so I didn't want to use it too much... Then I just ended up never using it! Does anyone else do that? I've had this hair product for years but it's sat in my shower unused for the majority of the time. I'm doing everything I can right now to help the condition of my hair including using no heat while in lockdown so I've brought this back into my haircare routine. It is a bit of a faff having to apply it to damp hair, leaving it for 10minutes and then washing your hair but it's worth it. It's a treatment that helps with breakages and strengthening hair so a good one for blonde hair. I probably won't repurchase it until I've used up a lot more of the hair products that have been sitting unloved.

  1. I used to use the Soap and Glory Hot Cloth Cleanser - I'd completely forgotten about it! Such a shame it's been discontinued!
