Not being a beauty blogger that writes a regular post on my recent empties, I thought I would just let you know what products I have recently and completely finished, which is always a good sign.
However I am guilty, as many of you are - I'm sure, of hoarding remnants of beauty products at the back of the cupboard or on the dressing table, not wanting to part with the last few drops or the fancy jar.

I'm not averse to this type of blog post at all, my problem is a simple one, I forget to hold onto the empty containers, meaning no photo, so no post.
Over the past few months the empties below somehow avoided the "bin toss" and all but one have made it back into my beauty life.
(If you would like to read the original reviews on these products then click on the 
Pink Links below)


benefit Roller Lash:

I have mentioned this mascara so many times and in my opinion it's a "must have" mascara and its replacement is already in daily use.


Avène Eau Thermale Spring Water Spray:

I just love my daily, post make-up, spritz of the Avène Thermale Spring Water and if kept in the fridge it's such a welcome refreshing and cooling mist on a hot Durban day, which means it's a permanent fixture in my house and even my hubby and the kids sneak a spritz on the hottest of days.


L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Toner:

The L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Toner is unfortunately the only product that hasn't been replaced and it's not for any reason, other than - I'm constantly trying new toners and very rarely replace any that I review, as there is always another one waiting to be tried and written about.



benefit GOOF PROOF BROW PENCIL has been, literally a "brow" changer for me and even when the end of the pencil appears and you know it can't last forever,(even though you wished it would) it still comes as a shock. After saying that and considering it's a daily used product, it does last a good long while.


Collection Lasting perfection Concealer:

I currently have as stash of this concealer, as unfortunately its not available in South Africa.
I have written a series of blog posts on budget concealers and this certainly is my tops in terms of both price and effectiveness and if you can get your hands on one it really won't disappoint.

Hopefully I will write more posts in the future about my 'recent empties" as long as I can remember not be too eager to throw the empties away...


  1. I share a few of your favourites with you as products that I have re-purchased. The Benefit Rollerlash mascara is probably my HG mascara after comparing it to one or two other mascaras in my collection. I also love being able to skip the step of curling my lashes. I love the Avène Eau Thermale Spring Water Spray to soothe my skin after a long day and before applying me evening moisturiser. And I have re-purchased the Benefit Goof Proof Pencil after being upset at it running out one morning while I was doing my brows.

  2. Hi Glad you agree with me..it's nice to hear from you.The problem with the Goof Proof pencil is... You can't see the pencil as its inside the tube, so you don't know when it's coming to an end, but well worth a re purchase.
