Products I’ve Used Up #2

So this isn’t the largest selection of empties ever seen on a blog post…but if I’m honest, it actually takes me a loooooong time to use products up because I am one of those annoying people (or great people if you work for Boots) that buys new things before the older products have run out.  So these are the latest products to have run out in my collection. 
First up is the No.7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream.  I bought this with a No.7 voucher a while ago, and I really loved it.  It says that it is ideal for normal to oily/combination skin so I chose it because my skin is very much of the combination variety.  I had bad experiences in the past with night creams, because the general idea of most of them is to keep your skin hydrated over night but this seemed to come at the cost of them being thicker, heavier and ‘greasier’.  To be fair, it was probably down to some of the choices I made, I wasn’t keen on splurging on high end creams just yet because I just think that there is plenty of time for all that!  All I need right now is to keep my skin hydrated without clogging it up and breaking it out, and this product does the trick perfectly.  The consistency is light and it goes on easily and blends to leave my skin feeling silky soft without any build up.  I have already repurchased this cream recently with another No.7 voucher that I had, and for me to purchase the same product more than once is quite a big deal! 
Another product that I used up and repurchased straight away is the L’Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution.  I bought this after seeing it get some rave reviews from other bloggers, and anything that is supposed to remove all make up quickly and thoroughly is worth a go in my book.  I am generally quite lazy when it comes to skincare routines, and after a long day at work the last thing I want to do is spend ages removing make up and cleansing/toning/moisturising blah blah blah, I just want to go to bloody bed!  So I used this water-like solution to remove my make up and mascara, and was very pleasantly surprised at how quickly it removes it.  It doesn’t leave you feeling like you have any oily cleanser left on your face either, the consistency is so thin and watery that your skin feels completely naked afterwards and all that’s left to do is moisturise (unless you have a nice fancy serum or something, I’m too tight to buy one…yet). 
Last up is the L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Resurfacing Primer.  I really really loved this product, the base it created for my foundation was amazing – my pores have never looked so invisible!  I would definitely recommend this and would love to buy it again, but the one thing that puts me off is the price; it was around £14.99 and as you can see it is only a small little pot, so it is quite a lot of money for such a small amount.
So there are my recent empties!  What have you been using up this month?  Have you tried any of these products?  xx



  1. Love both the no 7 cream and the L'Oreal water. They are products I'll definitely be repurchasing when they run out
