Empties - Products I've Used Up #2

It's been so long since I did my last empties post, and I noticed that I gathered too many products within the past 5-6 months so it was about time to do another empties post.
Please excuse the bad light in some of the pictures, when i took them the weather was acting crazy! 

Vichy Eau Thermale Water Spray
I love using mineral water sprays on my face especially at summer time and when my face has some kind of irritation, burning sensation or itchyness. Vichy's water spray is a typical mineral water like most of the ones I've tried, but my favorite so far is Avene's, because I actually saw a difference on my face when it's irritated. One thing I don't like about the Vichy one is that it sprays all over my clothes except my face, they sould fix the spray in my opinion.

Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Shampoo
I never thought I would even mention a shampoo in my blog, ever, and that's because all of the shampoos I've tried irritated my scalp after a while. But this one not only it hasn't irritate me so far, but I actually finished a whole bottle and also I'm almost done with my second one! It's the perfect shampoo for those who have long hair because it leaves it super soft without weight it down. One more positive thing is that is OK for oily scalps, most shampoos that are not targeted for oily scalps make my hair greasy within a day, but I never had this problem with this one. For me it's definitely a keeper!

 The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream
This has been my HG moisturizer for almost half a year now, I seriously love it so much that I'm almost done with the second one that I got in January. It's perfect for oily skintypes, it hasn't break me out and I'm very acne prone when it comes to moisturizers. I'm not planning to change this moisturizer in the near future, right now for me this is perfect!

Sephora Waterproof Eye Make Up Remover
I've already talked about this eye make up remover and how I think this one is better than other duo phase eye make up removers. It doesn't stink my eyes, which is a huge plus for me since I have sensitive eyes, and it removes mascara and eyeliner very easy. I will continue repurchase this one!

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water
I got this micellar water long ago in a mini bottle just to try it out. The only thing I like about this one is the smell and the fact that it doesn't make my face oily afterwards. But it irritates my skin, especially my cheekbones and I cannot use it for 3 days straight. There are way better micellar waters outthere like La Roche Posay's Physiological and Vichy's Eau Thermale, both perfect for sensitive skintones.

John Frieda Frizz - Ease Extra Strength Serum
Before I found out about Sunsilk's Perfect Straight leave in cream this serum was the only one I was using before I blow dry my hair, it really manages the frizzyness and straightens hair super quick and easy. But it's way too expensive here, it costs 14 euros for only 50 ml of product, and I find that Sunsilk's Perfect Straight Leave In cream ( the purple one) does the same, maybe even better, job with only 3 euros for 150 ml of product. As you can see Sunsilk is definitely the winner in this battle, so I won't repurchase the Frizz Ease serum in the future.

Korres Olive Stones Deep Cleansing Scrub
This scrub along with the Pomegranate, also from Korres, are the best face scrubs I've ever tried so far, and I've tried lots of them. It smells amazing, like summer,  and the olive stones do an excellent job at exfoliating my skin without irritating it. If you like non salicylic acid scrubs you should try this one, it's superb!

Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Mask
This is a great cleansing mask for oily skintypes, way better than others I've tried. It cleanses the skin without drying it out, and I really saw a difference on my nose pores. Like the rest products from the Korres Pomegranate line, it smells amazing! In my opinion, you should try at least one product from the Pomegranate line just for the smell!

Mac Pro Longwear Foundation
I don't know how many times I've already mention this foundation, last time it was in my April favorites. This is my old one, now I'm using the new bottle I got a few months ago, and I've already used almost half of it. Best long lasting foundation in the market and it doesn't break me out. I'll definitely repurchase it in the future.

Escada Taj Sunset Fragrance
I love Escada's summer limited edition fragrances, every year they release a new one, Taj Sunset was released 2 years ago, and I really loved it. It's super fruity and summerish, and if you like that kind of scents for the summertime you should check out Escada fragrances. I'm pretty sure I'll get the new Cherry Blossom one really soon, it smells amazing!

L'oreal Mega Volume Collagene 24H mascara
This is propably the best mascara I've ever used for years and certaintly the best mascara that L'oreal has right now.  It makes my lashes super long and voluminous, but the best part is how soft it feels, it has a consistency that feels like mousse, perfect for those who have sensitive eyes. Most mascaras by the end of the day make my eyes watery and itchy, this one never did that. I only wish it was less expensive, but I'm definetely planning to repurchase it in the future.

So these were the empties I managed to collect these past few months, I hope my next empties post will be sooner than this one was. Let me know if you've tried any of the products that I mentioned above, and if you like them or not.
