Empties #14// Bleach London, Simple, The Ordinary

flatlay of empty beauty products
It's been a month, so it's empties time again. This one has a few products that I've featured in a few blog posts before which are solid faves, along with some more fancy things I got as gifts <3

Directions Lavender// I love Directions hair dyes, the colours are gorgeous, they are pretty affordable and most importantly, don't damage bleached hair. Would definitely recommend/ buy it again. Check out my review here: Directions lavender// review and before and after

Simple clear skin oil balancing moisturiser// I've bought this a few times, and it's just a solidly good moisturiser. I use this all the time as it's not perfumed, pretty affordable and agrees with my skin. I'm trying The Ordinary's moisturising factors at the moment, but I'll probably go back to this Simple one as I think you get slightly more product.

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%// I've used up two of these now, and while I do think this is a good product and I'm pretty sure it helped brighten my skin, I'm super broke right now so I'm using some brightening sheet masks that I've already got at home before I buy this again.

Clinique take the day off eye make up remover// This took my eye makeup off well, but it did make my eyes sting a little. I liked it, but I might as well stick with the Garnier micellar water as it's cheaper and does the same job.

Bleach London Reincarnation Mask// My fave hair mask, and another one that's pitched up in a fair few empties before. Suffice it to say that if you have bleached hair then I think you should try it. There's also a mini one that came with the Bleach pack- I tend to save these for travel (Bleach needs to do me a favour and start selling this as a mini on it's own). 

Rimmel Stay Matte concealer in 010 porcelain// Rimmel recently reformulated this :'( I'd been happily using this and only this for 3 years. I've bought the new version and although it's not bad, it was more expensive for less product with a brush applicator I don't really like, and the packaging is still ugly, just a different ugly. But it still fits my skin colour luckily. It's still a good product, but personally the liquid formula isn't as good for me.

Bayliss and Harding midnight peony bath creme// I got this as a present, and it's made my baths sooo luxurious~ Sad to finish it.

Clinique high impact mascara// I've had this mascara before, and it's great! Clinque is a bit pricier than my normal Maybelline, but this mascara is legit and getting the mini one is perfect for me because you shouldn't keep mascaras for more than a few months anyway. This one came in a Clinique sample set I got at Christmas, and it's just a good mascara. 

Topshop Matte nails nail varnish in 'Dilly Dally' // I got this for £2 in the sale a couple of years ago, and I've used it all up! I loved it. It was the perfect colour, and the matte finish was cool too.

Body Shop Atlas Rose moisturiser// This was a present from a friend too, and it smelt amazing! It's quite heavily perfumed, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you love rose scent, but every time I used this the whole room smelt gorgeous for a while. Also, it made my skin really soft.

Billy in the Tree Argan Oil// I got this pure argan oil from Amazon, and it was great! Argan Oil is a staple in my hair routine because it moisturises while also reducing the time taken to dry your hair. I'm trying one from The Ordinary at the moment, but to be honest this one is better in terms of value for money as you get more for what you pay- this one lasted me over three years.

Simple regeneration age resisting eye cream// I've used up my first ever eye cream :o makes me feel slightly old, eek. Buut, although I've only tried two so far, I think this was all right. It absorbed in quickly, the tube packaging is hygenic and I'd definitely buy it again, especially as Boots often have 3 for 2 on simple products.

That's it for now, hope you guys are well! I've been surprisingly busy recently, given that it's the summer holidays, but I have managed to fit in some blogging. I've got a couple of longer wordier posts in the works, and some exciting changes, so stay tuned
