Beauty Empties | June 2013



June's empties review is a lot more positive than in previous months. I was worried this series was getting a reputation for being snarky! Anyway, you know me, if something doesn't live up to the hype, I'm squealing. 

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter - definitely repurchase


Despite being super heavily scented this body butter surprised me by how moisturising it really is. I received it as a Christmas present and it was such a treat to use. The best bit is the scent is a total rip for for Miss Dior Cherie, so you don't even need to use a perfume if you've got this on. I love a multi-tasking product. Now all I can do is wait for another Boots 3 for 2 offer!

L'Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Crystal Sparkling Conditioner* - no repurchase

I tried this along with the shampoo and 60 second treatment from the range.  Nothing groundbreaking and I think it's just the budget friendly version of the Kerastase Cristalliste range.  My hair is pretty fine and already pretty silky and glossy (go me! Also, read: more oil prone than I'd like!) so I find it just made it too lank.  If you have coarse, dry hair, however it may help you tame it.  Worth a try if you're curious. 

Redken All Soft Shampoo* - no repurchase 

I received this at L'Oreal event (Redken is one of their brands) and literally ran home to wash my hair with it after hearing all the hype.  I think the hype comes from people with very dry, rough and hard to manage hair, because again, my hair is just too fine and silky for it.  It didn't really cleanse the roots as well as I'd like, and I just felt that my hair was flat and dull after using it.  A huge disappointment, so I won't be reacquainting myself with it. 

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic* - maybe repurchase 

Toner has become a really important step in my skincare regime and this one is gentle enough to get on with most skin types.  It contains Aloe Vera, Rose-Geranium, Cucumber, Vitamin E and Calendula. I also have the spray bottle version of this too but if you can get it go for the twist up cap which is much easier to use as a toner - the spritz is a little messy. 
I've reviewed it in a bit more depth here.

Frederic Fekkai Protein Rx Reparative Shampoo - no repurchase 

I bought this after a recommendation from Lollipop26's channel (now Laura from buynowbloglater.com) a couple of years ago.  It smells divine and is a very nice shampoo, but it ain't cheap.  I picked up the masque treatment and leave in conditioner which both let me down, so the shampoo was the best of the set.  It didn't do wonders for my hair and so I won't be going back to it. 

Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Hot Cloth Cleanser - definitely repurchase 

This skincare gem is under £5 and one of the nicest hot cloth cleansers I've tried.  It has the perfect consistency somewhere in between the infamous Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (a little too dense) and No7's offering (a little too sloppy).  I'm not a fan of the muslin cloth that comes with it, so just pick some up from Mothercare or Liz Earle.  It handles complete make up removal, including mascara. 

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation - definitely repurchase 

This is my nth bottle of this great budget foundation and while I'm a little tired of it now, I'll be coming back to it in the Autumn when my skin gets a little drier.  It's very moisturising so not great if you have oily skin or during the summer, but if you have dry skin, you'll love it.  The lightest shade 51, is a perfect match for me (I'm about NC15 at Mac).
