EMPTIES - May 2016

Hello, ladies! It's that time of the month, that I present you with my May Empties. I started this series last month and you can read about my April Empties HERE. This will be the last blog post before my holidays. I'm not sure if I'll be able to blog from Tenerife. I will try my best to blog at least once or twice a week. Without further ado, let's get to it.

Face & Body Care
Recently, I have finished my Cien Exfoliating Face Wash from Lidl. Lidl has 2 face washes in their collection, the exfoliating one and a normal one. I like to use the exfoliating one around the areas where I have drier skin i.e. on the sides of my nose and on my chin. This face wash costs about €1. It does what it's supposed to do and for that reason, it's a HIT for me.

Yes, ladies I have used up my Simple Cleansing Micellar Water. You can read my review on it HERE. As I have mentioned in the review, it's a very good product and once I see that it's on promotion I am going to restock. The RRP is €5.99. This micellar water is a HIT.

Lastly in the Face & Body Care section, I have a sample that I got with my Cellulite Cream; it's the Eveline Argan & Vanilla 2-in-1 Lotion and Exfoliator. Personally, I have mixed feeling about this sample. I absolutely loved how it exfoliated my skin. It left my skin feeling so smooth and soft. However, what threw me off is the smell. I'm not a big fan of the vanilla scent. My skin was smelling of vanilla until my next wash. That's how long lasting it was. I would repurchase this product, but in a different scent - strawberry one preferably ;) The full size costs about €5. It works wonders on the skin therefore, it's a HIT for me.

To be honest with you all, I have not used up a lot of makeup. I usually only do a full face makeup on the weekend, so the products are not used up so quickly. The first product is my holy grail compact powder. I finished my Wet'n'Wild Cover All Pressed Powder in Fair. This is by far the best powder I have ever used. It's great for setting foundation and it keeps my T-zone at bay. I buy my Wet'n'Wild products in Penneys. The RRP is €3.99. I will definitely repurchase. It's a HIT.

The last product that I have used up I actually found in my work makeup bag. I have to admit something, though... I finished this product weeks ago, so it should probably be in the April Empties. Oh well. I'm talking about the Catrice Re-Touch Light Reflecting Concealer in Ivory. I absolutely love the packaging. It's expensive looking and feels heavy in the hand. It has a pink undertone, which suits my complexion. It covers my dark circles very well and can be used as a highlighter as well. But, yes there is a but. This pen, if used regularly would run out in 2 weeks. There is so little product, that it's not worth buying. The RRP is €4.49 and for me, it's a MISS. I would not repurchase.

So that is all for today. I hope you enjoyed my second empties post.
Did you get to try out any of these products? Were they a hit or a miss?

Thank you all for reading!
