Empties: #1

These are a few products I've finished and collected over the last 3 months. 

1. Organic Care Nourish Conditioner
I've been using this conditioner for a year now mainly because it's so cheap. You can get it at Safeway and Priceline for around $3. But I continue to repurchase it because it smells like coconut and macadamia and makes my hair nice and soft. Its also environmentally friendly and doesn't contain harsh chemicals. I HIGHLY recommend checking it out. 

Repurchase: Definitely

2. Derma 3 in 1 Facial Wipes
This is exclusive to Coles. You can buy it for $2 for 25 wipes but they always have 3 for 2 sales. It's good value for an awesome product. I don't wear liquid foundation so I can say anything about that. I do however where a lot of eye makeup. It does a decent job, removing about 98%, however it doesn't remove waterproof mascara :( But other than that it gets the job done. It feels really fresh on the skin, the wipes don't dry out fast (if you store it well) and there is a slight scent but nothing too overwhelming. 

Repurchase: Potentially after I've tried other wipes

3. Sex in the City LOVE Perfume
I LOVE how inexpensive this perfume is. You can get it for $6-$9 depending where you go, Big-W, K-mart, Target etc. Scents are hard to describe but I will try my best. It's a very feminine and floral which I love. My one BIG problem with this perfume is its longevity. It literally last for around 20 minutes, when you first spray it smells lovely but then nothing it just disappears. 

Repurchase: NO

4. 1000 Hour Nail Foils in Pink Swirl
This was TERRIBLE. The application was very difficult, the end look was atrocious and the foils were way too big. My nails are small to average and because the foils were so large application was difficult which is an understatement (I needed my mum) and even after that it didn't help. It looked decent from afar but if you looked closely it was really messy and lumpy. It was just a bad experience overall. Lucky it came in my Priceline beauty bag so I didn't actually pay for it. 

Repurchase: NEVER

5. Smith Street Market Scented Body Wash - Musk Sticks
I received as a Christmas present. It came in a pack of 2, but because I preferred the other scent I used this up first. I've seen this brand in Target but I'm not entirely sure of the price range. It was a pretty average body wash it smells like my childhood medicine rather than musk sticks. It also didn't lather as much as I would've liked it to. But it lasted me a long time so overall it was okay.

Repurchase: No

6. Garnier Deodorant Invisi Mineral 48hr Max Protect
This is definitely not 48 hour protection, I would say a couple of hours at the most. I'm not a heavy sweater so this is a good product for me. It has a very musky scent which I don't mind and I have no problems with white marks. I wouldn't recommend spraying it in a confined space so make sure you have a door or window open. It has a lock feature which is great for travelling. You can purchase it in Coles, Safeway, Chemistware House, Priceline etc for $5-$6 but I always buy it when it's on sale for half price. 

Repurchase: Yes

7. Bioré 4-in-1 Self-Foaming Cleanser
I LOVE this stuff. It gets rid of all the dirt, it has lots of good ingredients like green tea and eucalyptus and the bottle lasts a long time (one pump is enough for your whole face). I wouldn't recommend it for people with sensitive skin because for the first month of using it there is a tingling sensation when you leave it on your skin for more that 30 seconds. But for me that tingling sensation means it's actually cleaning my skin. 

Repurchase: Definitely and have already 

8. Maybelline Define-A-Lash Waterproof Mascara - Very Black
I enjoyed this mascara but it isn't one of my favourites. It has a rubber wand, with small dispersed rubber bristles which is great for defining the lashes (as the name suggests) and it also gives a lot of length. But I prefer a mascara that defines, lengthens and gives volume. And because it fails to give any volume and hence why it isn't one of my top mascaras. The formula is quite wet so you have to be careful not to get it on your eyelid. The formula is one that makes your eyelashes feel stiff which I'd rather it didn't. 

Repurchase: No, but mainly because there are so many mascaras to try

9. Maybelline Baby Lips - Menthol 
I have already reviewed Maybelline's baby lips. My least favourite out of all of them is menthol hence why I finished it first. It's mainly the scent that bothers me, but I do like the tingling feeling. 

Repurchase: Not in menthol

Review: ColorBurst Lipstick in Petal and Peach

Claim: "Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick has a formula that feels weightless on the lips. It includes innovative pigments that delivers high impact colour in one swipe. The elasticolour formulation is designed to distribute rich colour pigments evenly over the lips and allows for a comfortable feel. The formula is also enriched with moisturisers and antioxidants such as sweet almond oil to improve lip texture and prevent drying." (from

Packaging: Love, Love, Love. It's gorgeous. The quilted pattern, the tops (showing quite an accurate representation of the colour) and the way REVLON is embossed on the lpstick itself, reminds me of high-end packaging. 

Formula: They are smooth and easy to apply. The colour payoff is actually quite sheer, so to get good coverage you need to really build it up and if you have more pigmented lips then your lip colour will definitely show through. Even with my medium pigmented lips, my natural lip colour shows through.

Empties: #3 (Skincare)

As a reference I have combination skin. Non sensitive and not acne prone. 

1. Biore Revitalise 4-in-1 Self Foaming Cleanser This is my second bottle of this cleanser. I love it. For the first few uses it tingles slightly on the skin which I love however the tingling does stop after using the product for a while. It makes my face feel clean without being tight.
Would I repurchase? Definitely 
2. Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser  This did NOTHING for me. I have blackheads all around my nose and this did nothing to diminish them. The product itself doesn't warm up for long, the heat last for around 10 seconds and really doesn't do anything. It has very, very small exfoliating beads (ingredients) but personally I prefer something a bit more rough because this one just did nothing for me.  
Would I repurchase? Definitely no
3. Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Gentle Make-up Remover Love, Love, Love. This is really good value for an awesome makeup remover. I only use this for my eye make…
