I don’t know what it is about empties posts but there’s something incredibly satisfying about reviewing products I’ve used all the last little bits of. Maybe it’s down to the realisation that it’s time to buy replacements? I’m sure you all know the 411 by now with empties posts but if not it’s where I tell you my honest thoughts on products I’ve actually used up.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water – I’m not going to harp on too much about this one as I actually used up a 400ml bottle in my last empties post. What I will say is this is the lazy girls best friend for swiftly removing make-up – it’s even suitable for the most sensitive skinned gals out there. Bioderma who?

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray – It’s been a whole 8 months since I last finished a This Works Pillow Spray which is a testament to just how long this sleep inducing baby lasts – I use this every night, whether I’m at home or away. I’ve never been a fantastic sleeper (and we’re talking long before I became pregnant) so I find a spritz of this just before collapsing onto my pillow helps me to drift off much quicker than I would sans spray. A forever repurchase.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Deauville – I may have let out a cry of despair as I banged this bottle on my hand for the last time (yes I really should buy a pump). Nars Sheer Glow will always be my holy grail foundation – it lasts all day, provides medium yet buildable coverage and buffs into my skin like a dream to provide a non matte/non dewy finish. My only gripe? Nars and their supply issues, this has been out of stock (on and off) since December and my order with Space NK is currently at four weeks and counting. Sort it out Nars, I need me some Sheer Glow! Want a more in depth review? Mine’s here.

The Body Shop Body Butter in Glazed Apple* – I’m sure you all know by now how much I enjoy Body Shops Body Butters, they just bring the moisturisation levels like nothing else. The glazed apple scent was a special edition for Christmas and while it’s no longer available I can tell you it was the right mix of sugar and spice and all things nice.

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Travel Candle – Bought as a birthday gift last year (thanks Gem) I was a teeny bit sad when this Jo Malone candle took it’s final breathe. While Pomegranate Noir is one of Jo Malones most popular scents it’s never been a fragrance I’ve gravitated towards, until I got this candle. The mixture of sweet pomegranate, raspberry and plum combined with pink pepper and spice is truly divine making this the perfect scent to burn in our living room – it’s got that unisex, welcoming home fragrance down.

Nars Creamy Concealer in Vanilla – The only concealer that helps to hide my ‘baby kept me awake kicking all night’ under eye bags. I love how this multi tasking concealer covers both blemishes and under eye circles although it’s frightening how quick I go through this – something I’ve heard a few bloggers comment on. Urban Decays latest cover-all is getting some rave reviews and at nearly £5 cheaper than Nars I’m tempted to give it a bash.

Have you ever tried any of my empties? Which concealer do you reach for?
