Empties & speedy reviews #35 featuring Jo Malone, Kat Von D, Benefit, Alpha H & more!

You all know the drill here - I show you what I've finished recently with a speedy review and tell you whether I would repurchase the products! I have a mixture of skincare, makeup and a few miscellaneous bits and pieces so let's get started!


Pixi Glow Tonic: This is a staple in my skincare routine and I've repurchased it around seven times at this stage!  It is gentle enough to use daily even on my sensitive skin but it is effective in keeping congestion at bay and my skin soft. I will repurchase but want to try The Ordinary Glycolic Toner to see how it compares.

Alpha H Essential Hydration Cream: I absolutely love this cream - it is ideal for sensitive skin. It is moisturising but isn't overly rich or at all greasy. This has really helped to repair my skin after I had a sever reaction to a product that I was testing. It has been my go-to for the last few months. I will repurchase at some point but I have another moisturiser that I love on the go at the moment.

Alpha H Liquid Gold: Another staple in my skincare routine that I have repurchased several times and another amazing Alpha H product! I use this at least twice a week at night and whilst it sometimes tingles slightly on application, it doesn't make my skin red. The morning after using this, my skin feels smooth with refined pores and looks much brighter. I already have a back up and will repurchase forever! 

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser: There is no doubting that this cleanser melts makeup, however I didn't like that it felt like there was a film of product on my skin that required a LOT of rinsing, also it made my skin feel very dry. I won't repurchase.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Treatment: This was a sample that I received in a Christmas gift. I've used this many times before and have always enjoyed it because it leaves the eye area plump and hydrated - what more could I ask for? I have three other eye creams on the go at the moment so won't repurchase yet but will in the future.


Salon Science Proaccelerant Shampoo: I really liked this shampoo - I don't know that I could say for sure that my hair has grown faster as a result of it but my medication affects my hair growth so my results would naturally be stunted by that. That being said, my hair has grown and is generally stronger. Currently half price in Boots.

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque: Without doubt, the best hair mask I have ever used! This keeps my skin soft, strong and glossy. It doesn't weigh my hair down at all, doesn't make it get greasy quicker and it smells divine! If you have dry or damaged hair, you need this mask in your life! I will definitely repurchase.


Kat Von D Ink Liner: I love that this liner has a fine tip so I can create a thin line or build it up if I want to create a flick. It doesn't budge at all on my oily lid/watery eye combination but my only issue with it is that it fades to a not very strong black as time goes on. Overall, I think I prefer Stila Waterproof Stay All Day Liquid Liner so I probably won't repurchase at the moment.

Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil: This was a sample with a magazine last year and I really liked it. It reminds me of Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer - it has an angled nib, which means that it is easy and quick to create defined brows. I will repurchase at some point.

Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil: I was surprised at how quickly I finished this I love the fine nib, which makes creating a natural brow quick & easy. It is very similar to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. I will repurchase at some point.


Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia: I adore this perfume - it's so fresh and is a gorgeous fruity/floral scent without being too sweet. The perfect Spring scent! I will add to my wishlist and possibly repurchase at some point!

This Works Sleep Plus + Pillow Spray: This is a bedside essential for me now. Although it is quite expensive, I don't see it as a luxury because this really helps not only to get me to sleep but also to sleep right through the night. I highly recommend it to anybody who has sleep issues. I have already repurchased.

Rituals Express Your Soul Body Cream: Oh how I adore everything about this product! The lemon scent is so invigorating and uplifting and perfect for Spring/Summer. The cream absorbs quickly and easily and really moisturises the skin well to leave my skin glowing and nourished. It was a treat but I might repurchase!
