Fragrance Empties 2016

Hi everyone,

This is my first ever Fragrance Empties post, and its just a round up of all the fragrances that I have used up during 2016. I'm also thunking about this every year.

Lacoste Love of Pink 50ml

This is a lovely fragrance during to wear during Spring/ Summer, and it also has a lovely mild citrus scent. 

Lacoste Touch of Pink 50ml

This is one fragrance that I have to sadly declutter, as its turned. I wore this all the time while I was at college, so it does remind me of my time there. I will repurchase this again in the future, but I need to use up some more fragrances before I do.

Romance by Ralph Lauren 50ml

This was my least favourite scent to use up during 2016. I used it up really for the sake of using it up, and I was happy once I had finally finished it.

Dior Addict 2 50ml

I loved wearing this, and I really enjoyed using it up. Sadly, this fragrance by Dior got discontinued a few years ago :(

Marc Jacobs Dot 50ml

The scent of this fragrance grew on me, but it did take a while for me to start enjoying it. I'm unsure if I would actually repurchase this again.

Angel by Theirry Mugler 25ml

This is my favourite Autumn/ Winter fragrance, as its so cosy and warm. This is one of the non-refillable bottles. But I've already repurchased, but this time its in a refillable bottle. 

Thats the round up of my 2016 fragrance empties, and it was a little bit of a mixed bag. But, I'm hoping to do this again for this years empties.

Beauty Haul - February 2017

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my first beauty haul of 2017. There's a few new products, and a couple of repurchases.

Elemis Hydrating Rosepetal Cleanser
I've decided that I want to have a more hydrating products as part of my morning skincare routine. I've never used the hydrating line from Elemis, but I'm looking forward to having it form part of my morning skincare routine.

Elegies Rehydrating Ginseng Toner
This is toner to match the rosepetal hydrating cleanser, which again form part of my morning skincare routine.

Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Serum
I've been wanting to add an antioxident serum into my evening skincare routine for a while, so I decided to pick the Caudalie Polyphenol C15 serum as it seemed the most concentrated. It's also a reasonable price point for an antioxidant serum, which is great if your looking for something that works while being on a budget. This is working great as part of my night time skincare routine.

Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturiser
I love having this as part of my evening skincare routine, and in all honesty I haven't been using it that long. So I decided that I would buy a back up as I've got a funny feeling that I'm going to go through this fairly quickly.

Clinique 'All About Eyes' Eye Cream
I've finally found an eye cream that doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes, and its also extremely hydrating. I've only purchased a back up of the 'All About Eyes' in the original formula, but during the colder months I'm considering purchasing the rich formula of this eye cream as its just a little bit more hydrating.

Omorovicza 'Queen of Hungry' Mist
I've decided to treat myself to the Omorovicza 'Queen of Hungry' mist. I want to add this as part of my evening skincare routine as my toner, once my current one has ran out. The scent of the 'Queen of Hungry' mist is very spa-like, and I'm really looking forward to using this.

Review: Ole Henrikson Sheer Transformation Moisturiser

Hi everyone,

I have been using the Ole Henrikson Sheer Transformation Moisturiser for the past few months, and I'm really liking it. I have been using the Sheer Transformation moisuriser as part of my morning skincare routine.

- Lightweight & sheer texture
- Luxurious oil free cream feels light & silky as it penetrates the skin
- Helps to fade discolouration such as freckles, age spots & sun damage without the use of chemicals
- Nourishes & retexturises the skin, smoothes facial lines & provides intense free radical protection to prevent further damage

Actiwhite - Provents & corrects discolouration & evens out the skin tone with an effective combination of pea extract & sugar
Vitamin C - Stimulates collagen production
Fruit Acids - Retexturises & smoothes lines
Sandalwood, Geranium, Liquorice & Camomile Extract - Smoothes, replenishes, balances & purifies the skin
Vitamin E - Heals, restores & nourishes the skin

This is a lovely lightweight daytime moisturiser that sinks into the skin straight away. Its also an intense hydrating moisturiser, which might work well if you have dry/ dehydrated skin. I have combination skin & works great for me. But, what I have noticed with this moisturiser is that I can sometimes take too much of the product & overdo it without knowing it at the time. So just be aware that you do only need a small amount of this moisturiser because it does go a long way.

I have been using the Avene Cleanance Expert Emulsion as part of my acne routine for about a year.

The Avene Cleanance Expert Emulsion is formulated with the potent ingredient Diolenyl.
Diolenyl is a triple action ingredient to help combat acne. It helps to reduce spots, blackheads and blemishes; limit the spread of acne causing bacteria, soothes redness and inflammation.

- Acts on the main causes of spots

- Gentle exfoliating without stripping the skin
- Unclog pores

I love to use the Avene Clearance Expert during my acne routine, as I do notice a difference in my skin tone. It does leave my skin feeling balanced and hydrated. Its also a lightweight formula, which means that it sinks in straight away.
