Empties - Products I've Used Up

I've put myself on a strict no buy for skincare until I use up most of my already opened creams, masks and cleansers. I don't like wasting or throwing away half full products I spent money on, so if it's not something that I have a bad reaction to, I probably will use it up even if it's not my favourite. Here are the products that ended up in my empties basket from the past few months.

Yes to Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub
I use this mild daily scrub every morning and night to give a light exfoliation and get rid of dead skin cells. I love it, I already have bought an other tube of it.
REN Glycolactic Radience Renewal Mask
Who doesn't want glowy, radiant skin? This is what this mask promises. I read great reviews about this product, but somehow it didn't live up to my expectations, unfortunately it didn't do anything for my skin.
Nip and Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Cleansing Pads
This was a nice product, although the pads were a bit too wet in my opinion.The hyaluronic acid hydrates, while the salicylic acid deeply cleanses the skin. It's a good product, but I would probably try out something new instead of repurchasing this one.
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish
One of my must have skincare products is this cleanser. I use it as my first step in my evening skincare routine to take my makeup off.
It's mild to the skin but gets rid of even the heaviest makeup. Love, love, love this.
Co Lab Monaco mini
The CoLab dry shampoos are exceptional in my opinion. The are refreshing, give a bit of extra volume, not visible, and give you an extra two days of good hair without washing your hair.
My Little Beauty Sel De Guérande Body Scrub
This was bad, scratchy, the salt pieces were really rough on my skin, I didn't like this at all.
Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream
I received this in a My Little Box. It's hydrating, smells lovely, but I'm not gonna repurchase it, I have other hand creams to use up.
Alpha-H Absolute Eye Complex
I love the Liquid Gold from this brand so I wanted to try out more products from them, but unfortunately this eye gel didn't work for me. It has a very watery-gel consistency and simply didn't feel hydrating under the eyes. For the price I expected more from it.
Simple Soothing Eye Cream
On the other hand I really love this eye cream from Simple, this was the third I used up, and I currently have an other one in use. It's creamy, hydrating, perfect under makeup, good size for traveling and is very affordable.
L'Oréal Skin Perfection Advanced Correcting Serum
This line is aimed at 20-30 year olds, and both the cream and this serum is beautiful. Not only does it hydrate but somehow it makes your skin look instantly smoother, even and glowing. Very-very nice product.  
Talika Photo-Hydra Day Cream
Got this in a My Little Box and was using it as my daily moisturiser. I really-really loved this. It's very hydrating, plumped the skin, was great under makeup. Somehow it adapted to my skin's needs, balancing the dry and oily parts out. I'm thinking of repurchasing when I use up my other creams. 
The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet
I have gone through several bottles of this lovely moisturiser in the past years. Nice texture, lovely scent, works great under makeup, a very good, still affordable moisturiser.
Benefit Porefessional Primer
I love this primer, already have a travel sized one repurchased. Provides a beautiful, smooth base for your foundation, helps the makeup stay on longer and evenly.
MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation
As I said many times before, this is my number one choice when it comes to foundations. This is a full coverage base, that I like to use when I need my makeup to stay on from morning through night.
Soap&Glory One Heck Of A Blot Powder
I love this translucent powder for setting my under-eye area and buffing my face powder in. I almost used up my next one of this. And the powder puff is great for my face powder.
L'Oréal La Touche Magique Concealer
I go through these pretty fast, I would say I need to buy a new one every 2 months, but truth is that I use it every time I put makeup on. It's a great highlighting concealer with decent coverage that I use under my eyes.
Bourjois Twist Up The Volume Mascara
This is a great dupe for the Calvin Klein CK One Mascara for fraction of the price. Has the fat and the long brush setting for volumizing and lengthening. Honestly both do the same for me and can get the same effect on my lashes. I think this is a great drugstore mascara, I prefer it after a month or so, when the formula becomes a bit drier.
L'Oréal Volume Million Excess Mascara
This mascara was in my 2015 favourites, so obviously I love it. Gives me thick and long lashes. It's great on the lower lashes as well, doesn't look clumpy or crumble throughout the day. 

I hope you liked this post! Have a great day everyone!:)

Have you tried any of the above mentioned products? What do you think of them?
