Empties - Products I've Used Up #4

I haven't done an "empties" post in ages! I think the last time was six months ago. So when I realised that I haven't done one for so long and right after I opened the bag that I was keeping all of them I panicked because I had so many, especially the amount of mascaras, which I find ridiculously big! So I'll try to keep this post as small as I can. OK then, let's start!
Herbal Essences Bee Strong Shampoo
I've tries almost all of the Herbal Essences shampoos and this was propably my most favorite, it's the most moisturizing from all of their lines, but still after a two months of using it, it did dry out my hair and for that reason only I don't think I will repurchase it again.

Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner
This is one of my HG conditioners, it manages to moisturize and detangle my hair without being heavy at all, even its texture is very lightweight and when I first tried it I never thought that a conditioner with such a lightweight texture could moisturize my hair that well! I have already repurchase it and I will continue repurchasing it in the future.

Sephora Coconut Smoothing Body Scrub
This was one of the worst body scrubs I have ever tried, it was something between a shower gel and a scrub but it never exfoliated my body as good as I wanted, it's a huge no from me and I will never purchase it again.
La Roche Posay Physiological Micellar Solution
One of the best micellar lotions/waters in the market, in my opinion it's even better than the Bioderma Sensibio, and it's very underrated noone ever talks abou it. It's extremely gentle with my sensitive skin and it leaves my face matte and not sticky at all. This was the second bottle I've used up and of course I've already repurchased it.

Vichy Purete Thermal 3 in 1 Cleansing Micellar Solution
Before trying the La Roche Posay one the Vichy Micellar Solution used to be my HG cleansing water because it was so gentle with my skin, but it kinda left my skin sticky. If you want to know more about it I've done a full review here.

Frezyderm Moisturizing 24H Hydrating Cream 
It's not a secret how much I love this moisturizer, since last August I've used up 2 bottles and now I'm using a third one, it's amazing for my combination/oily skin and it never broke me out. If you want to know more you can read my full review about it  here.
Burt's Bees Sensitive Night Cream with Cotton Extract
I was never a fan of night creams, I always thought they were too heavy for my skintype, but this one completely changed my mind, it's like my skin really needed it, especially in the wintertime. It calmed down my all of skin irritations, itchyness and peeling skin, it's perfect for sensitive skintypes! I've also done a full review here if you want to know more about it.

Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub
I've used up so many of these little tubes the past couple of years, it's the only facial scrub that exfoliates so well and never irritated my skin that's why it's my HG. Right now I'm using the St.Ives Apricot one that I got last year from the UK but it's not as good as this one, I can't wait for it to finish so I can get the Korres one once more.

The Body Shop Shea Body Butter
The body butters from The Body Shop are essential products for me, I always have to keep one in my cabinet. I've tried so many of them but the Shea will always be my HG one, I loved it since I was a teenager. It has a warm-nutty and not overpowering scent that makes me want to eat my own skin everytime I use it.

Sephora Waterproof Eye MakeUp Remover
One of the best eye makeup removers that I've tried, it never irritated my eyes and takes off even the most stubborn mascaras without trying too much. I don't think that I will repurchase it again though because it's kind of expensive and I found another one that does the exact same job for less, but I may repurchase a mini one if I'm going to travel, it's so handy.

Vera Wang Princess Perfume
I'm not good at describing perfumes and scents so I'm not going to do it. I'm only going to say that I'm very picky with my perfumes and not only I've used up this bottle but I've also repurchased it and for me that says a lot, I rarely repurchase the same perfume. It's my HG everyday scent.
Seventeen Ideal Cover Liquid Concealer
I've gone through so many tubes of this concealer, no matter what new concealer I try I always come back to this one. The consistency is just perfect, it never made my undereye area dry and it covers my dark circles quite well.

Erre Due Volumizing Waterproof Mascara
This is a mascara that made my lashes extremely curled but it didn't do anything more than that, for me it was kind of meh. But if you want to know more here's my full review about it.

Maybelline The Falsies Flared Mascara
I was exremely dissapointed with this one, from the moment I opened it it was very dry, it's like it was opened way before I bought it. It was very hard to use it on my lashes and huge pieces of mascara were falling under my eyes. I had to throw it away only a month after I first used it.

Radiant Studio Perfect Mascara
I didn't have the chance to do a full review about this mascara, I had to stop using it only a few weeks after I opened it because of an eye infection. But overall it was an average everyday kind of mascara, it only gave a bit length to my lashes and nothing more.

L'oreal Mega Volume Collagene 24H Mascara
No doubt this is the best L'oreal mascara, from all the ones that I've tried from the L'oreal brand of course. It gives volume, it's super lightweight and it leaves my lashes really soft. If you want to know more about it, this is my full review.

Sephora Lash Plumper Mascara
The HG of all the mascaras that I've tried so far in my life, guys I think I've found the one! It has the same lightweight texture as the L'oreal Mega Volume Collagene 24H has but the results are way better, it gives amazing length and holds a curl like no other. I'm definitely going to repurchase it. You can read all about it here!

So these were all of my empty products for the past six months, I hope I didn't bore you with my long post. Have you tried any of these products? Did you like them? I wanna know!


  1. I love The Body Shop's body butters, I haven't actually tried the shea one yet!
    Water Painted Dreams xxx

    1. Ohh you should, especially in the fall and wintertime, it has a very cozy/warm smell!

  2. Such an informative post honey! I'm always excited when you do one of these.There are a couple of things I should include in my shopping list now! <3

  3. Πολύ ωραία προϊόντα!Ήθελα να σε ρωτήσω για την κρέμα της frezyderm εάν εμφανίζει λιπαρότητα όταν την χρησιμοποιείς το πρωί?kisses xxx

    1. Κοιτα, αναλογα εαν το δερμα μου ειναι προς το λιπαρο εως πολυ λιπαρο εκεινη την μερα ναι θα βγαλει γυρω απο την μυτη μου κ στο μετωπο επισης λιγο. Αν το δερμα μου ειναι πιο μικτο, οχι δεν εχω τετοιο προβλημα. Να φανταστεις αν το δερμα μου ειναι πιο ξηρο απο μικτο δεν ειναι αρκετη χρειαζομαι κατι πιο ενυδατικο. Οπως καταλαβαινεις το δερμα μου αλλαζει συχνα αναλογα με τον καιρο, ορμονικα προβληματα κλπ. Θα ελεγα οτι ταιριαζει σε μικτες προς λιπαρες παρα σε σκετες λιπαρες επιδερμιδες.

    2. Είμαι πολύ περίεργη να τη δοκιμάσω,σ'ευχαριστώ πολύ:)

  4. πολλαααααααααα!!! πολύ ομορφα όλα το κονσιλερ από seventeen το ειχα και εγω απιθανο απλα!!! φιλια!!!

  5. Ενδιαφέροντα προϊόντα και πιθανές μελλοντικές αγορές μου χιχι! :)

  6. Μαζεύτηκαν κάμποσα! Αυτό το Seventeen Concealer, δεν ξέρω αν έφταιγε η απόχρωση που είχα αλλά πιο πολύ highlighter θα το έλεγες παρά concealer. Θα του ρίξω μια ματιά, παίζει να το έχουν κάνει πιο καλυπτικό

    1. Αναλογα, ποια αποχρωση ειχες παρει? Η αποχρωση #1 κ #9 εχουν μονο shimmers μεσα κ ειναι μονο για highlighters.

  7. Το concealer της seventeen το δοκίμασα μια φορά και μου άρεσε πάάάρα πολύ! Έχω σκοπό όταν μου τελειώσει το scrub να δοκιμάσω αυτό του Κορρέ! Αν και είναι λίγο ακριβά σε σχέση με την ποσότητα τους...

    1. Πραγματι, η ποσοτητα τους ειναι πολυ μικρη, μακαρι να τα εβγαζαν σε μεγαλυτερη!

  8. This is a fabulous set of empties!
