If you follow my Instagram Stories you’ll have heard know I’m currently not buying any new beauty products this year (or until I run out).

As a beauty junkie, I have products falling out of every drawer and cupboard.  Rather than endlessly buy new products, I’ve decided to focus on using up the ones I already have.  This means I’ve been accumulating a lot of empties recently.



MorroconOil – Moroccanoil Treatment

As my hair is so long at the moment, it requires a lot of TLC.  Thankfully, MorroconOil keeps maintaining it fairly simple.  I use it after I’ve washed my hair to lock in moisture and add it to the ends as needed to keep split ends at bay.

I highly recommend!  As you can tell  go through bottles and bottles of it!

Shop it HERE.



Lush – Daddy-O Shampoo

It’s no secret I’m a sucker for anything violet scented, just check out my Discovering the Best Violet Perfume post HERE and Discovering the Best Home Fragrance post HERE to see what I mean.

The one thing I really liked about this is the scent lingers in your hair.  Otherwise as a shampoo it’s OK, nothing special, I personally don’t think it’s worth £6.25 for 100g, if I’m totally honest.

Shop it HERE.



Weleda – Skin Food Cream

I think this was my favourite out of all the empties.  If you suffer from dry skin then this is a must-have.

I found myself using it mostly on my feet.  Every night I’d slather it all over my feet, pop on my bedsocks on and wake up with the softest tootsies!

Shop it HERE.



Alpha H – Liquid Gold Rose

Liquid Gold has become one of my favourite skincare products of all time.  If you want something effective which shows instantaneous results (lets be honest who doesn’t!) then this is what you need to be using.  Literally overnight it resurfaces your skin to make it more radiant and appear less congested.

I’ve used both the Rose version (this one here) and the original one and personally I prefer the original.  I found the very heavy rose fragrance makes it even more unsuitable for sensitive skin then it already is.  Basically, if you have very sensitive skin I would avoid Liquid Gold altogether, if you have mildly sensitive skin, avoid the rose version.

Shop the Rose version HERE and the regular one HERE.



Bioderma – Make Up Removing Micelle Solution

Out of all the Micellar Waters (and there are plenty on the market) this has to have the most cult status.  I’m definitely fan and use it regularly.

The one time I won’t be without it is when I’m travelling, particularly if it’s to a hot climate.  It feels so refreshing and soothing on the skin; ideal for a humid, sweaty environment!

Shop it HERE.



Eau Thermale Avene – Micellar Lotion

For a long time the Bioderma Micellar Water was my favourite until I discovered this one.  To be honest, it’s a close call between the two but I find the Avene one removes more dirt and daily grime.  On the flip side, it does have a soapier texture and doesn’t feel as refreshing on the skin, so it depends what your preferences are.

    I’m the same when comes to beauty products. I get bored really quick and I just keep buying more and more! I need to do the same as you and just finish off what I already have before buying more 😘💞💖

    Ahh I can definitely use that Skin Food Cream from Weleda! I always have dry hands, especially in the winter! When it comes to my feet, I love using vaseline cream, works too! 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far, Dom!
