Empties in Tens #1

Are Empties still popular nowadays? I genuinely have no idea since I seldom watch beauty videos on YouTube anymore (I’ve moved over to the fitness corner) but what I do know is that I enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. Reviewing 10 empties at a time isn’t exactly a new idea but I definitely felt I needed more control in this aspect as more often than not, my empties bag gets out of hand and then I end up with an even bigger challenge of compiling the post. To make things even easier, I’m going to automatically throw out any empties that are simply repeats/go-tos and leave behind those that are either new or re-visited. A special shout-out goes to Rachael from Helpless Whilst Drying since she has been conducting this style of post for quite some time and I always thought it was a brilliant idea. What’s even more brilliant is that she collectively records the Empties into an excel spreadsheet to keep track of usage and spending in an …

A Bag Full of Empties 2018

Don’t worry, you haven’t read the title wrong. Here is another one of my crazy-late posts that actually got the chance of passing the finishing line! I took these photos at the beginning of the year but if you have been keeping up, the start of 2019 started a bit shaky for me and quite frankly, I wasn’t in the mindset to want to fully blog leisurely. I love a good empties post/video so it was always my intention to share this – just a matter of when. I’m still playing a bit of blog catch-up at the moment but I’ll be at the top of my blogging A-game soon in no time. 🙂 Now there’s a lot of products to cover so I’m going to keep it short and snappy for each one. Grab a cuppa and let’s get started!

The Beauty Clean-Up #10 (empties)

The last time I did an Empties was in February but for some reason, it feels much longer than that. (I actually had a slight panic just now thinking this one was my first of the year, haha.) The weather couldn’t be any more bipolar right now. Last week was the warmest of the year, going up to about 22 degrees where I am in the UK. This week seems like such a stark contrast that it’s hard to believe it was ever sunny. In fact, tonight feels a bit more chillier than the previous few days – Spring, where art thou? Regardless of that, I still need to do a clean-out. As a result of a trip to Hong Kong, some empties were disposed of before I came back, so there will be no pictures of those items. I do however, have previous photos to reference it to since I did a whole post on what skincare products I brought with me here! + Would repurchase – Will not bother again = Neutral/Indifferent + …

The Beauty Clean-Up #9 (empties)

This is starting to really feel like a series now, eh? I’ve made it a bit of a habit to look at my old empties which comes in so handy because I actually forget what I’ve used before or what I really liked/disliked. You see…it’s like my personal notebook on digital space. I’m the type of person who reads my own blog post even after I’ve long posted it…does anyone else do this? 😳 (I know it seems a bit narcissistic but I think it’s so important to like your work even if it’s not actually your job!) This time next week, I’ll have arrived in Hong Kong but since my box was getting so full and I wanted to clean before I go, I thought it was the perfect time to curate another one of these posts before I do the whole throw-out. 🙂 Enjoy! + Would repurchase – Will not bother again = Neutral/Indifferent =/= TONYMOLY I’m Real Sheet Masks in ‘Rice’ and ‘Broccoli’ +/= Nature Republic Real Nature Sheet Masks in ‘Royal Jelly’ and ‘Shea …
