Empties - JULY 2016

Hi everyone! So last week, I turned 21. I'm starting to feel so old... haha :) To be honest, I don't really feel the difference but then do we ever feel it? Today, I'm coming to you with my empties for the month of July. I used up quite a lot of products which I was a little bit surprised with. Anyways, let's get started!

Face & Body

 My boyfriend is literally obsessed with mouth wash. Give him any type of mouthwash and he will use it all up. I wanted to include these products because I occasionally use them too. I can see that mouthwashes make a difference but I couldn't be bothered to use them every day. However, what I use every single day is toothpaste. I got this toothpaste in my SoSueMe Goodie Bag ages ago. I really liked this product. It is a HIT and I will repurchase it when it goes on offer.

All of the products above are HITS for me! I mentioned in my April Empties, that the Cien Repair & Care Shampoo is my holy grail shampoo that I will always go back to, even though once in a while we might part ways for some time.

As you may have noticed, if you follow me on my Instagram - @avantvous I wear contact lenses. The solution that I use to keep my contact lenses in is the Tesco All in One Contact Lens Solution. It costs about €7 and it does the job.

The next thing is a Lacura Roll-On Deodorant from Aldi. This is the only type of deodorant that I can use because it's the only type that works for me.

Lastly, I finished these Cien Sensitive Baby Wipes. I use these wipes whenever I run out of my Cien Facial Wipes. I find that they do not remove makeup as well as the facial wipes, however, they are good enough to use until I grab the facial wipes.


The first thing that I would like to talk about is the Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara. The story with this mascara is that I found it in one of my handbags and decided to take it out and use it. However, after the second day of use, I noticed that my eyes started to get itchy and watery. At that time, I knew that the mascara has expired therefore I can't tell if it has been a hit or a miss for me because I haven't used it long enough. But, I will repurchase it and try it out again.

I raved about the Essence Stay All Day 16h Concealer on my blog so many times already. I liked this concealer because it didn't sit in my fine lines and it didn't crease when I applied it. One of the nicest concealers out on the market. This has been a HIT for me and I may repurchase in the future.

I finished the Studio 10 Brow Lift Perfecting Liner that I got in my April GlossyBox. I liked the brow liner while I had it. It had a neutral taupe colour, which suits most skin tones. I didn't use the highlighting side because the colour was way off for me. But I will not repurchase because simply I think that it's not worth the money. Imagine spending €30 on a brow liner and only being able to use about 3/4 of the product. It's a MISS for me.

Lastly, I used up my Cien Lip Balms. They are a HIT for me and I have already repurchased a new set. This time, I went for the Milk & Honey with SPF type. I must admit, they are not as hydrating as the original lip balms.

So that is all for today! I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments what you think about the products that I used up this month. Have you used any of them yourself? Thank you all for reading and talk to you all on Friday!
