Honest reviews, regular hauls and all things beauty.

Empties & speedy reviews #19 featuring Oskia, Estee Lauder, GLAMGLOW, Nars & more!

So it's empties & speedy reviews time again and this month, I have a good mix of skincare and bodycare to share with you. I finished a few holy grail products all at the same time, which makes me want to weep! Let's get started.


Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is one of my favourite cleansers. It has a balmy texture, which melts when you apply it to the skin and this makes it very easy to massage into the skin. When water is applied, it emulsifies to a milky texture and when rinsed, the skin is left feeling very clean and also nourished. This really suits my dry/dehydrated/sensitive skin. I will repurchase at some point.

Oskia Renaissance Mask is my absolute favourite mask. It does everything I could possibly want it to - deep cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate. My skin instantly looks brighter, clearer and feels smoother when I use this mask and I never want to be without it. Oskia is a brand that I would love to explore further because I have LOVED everything I have tried so far. I have already repurchased this.

GLAMGLOW ThirstyMud is an absolutely fantastic mask for dehydrated and dry skin. I love to leave it on overnight to get the most out of it and my skin is let plump, firm, soft and calm when I use it. I have already repurchased this.

Nude Progenius Omega Treatment Oil is one of my favourite discoveries this year. It is an extremely moisturising, non-greasy oil. It absorbs easily but the moisturising effect is long-lasting. It is expensive at £58 but worth the price because it lasts for a long time and is the best facial oil I have ever tried. I have a few other facial oils to use up but will then definitely repurchase.


Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Whipped Body Creme - I absolutely love the Bronze Goddess scent - for me, it is a holiday in a bottle! This body creme is very much a luxury/extravagant product but I absolutely loved using it to extend the life of the scent because I find the fragrance itself isn't very long-lasting. I might repurchase during the summer.

Calvin Klein Reveal Body Lotion - this 50ml tube was in a Gift Set that I bought earlier this year. I love the warm, musky scent of this perfume and this lotion was a nice treat but I would only repurchase if in a Gift Set.

Lacoste Touch of Pink Body Lotion - again, this was part of a Gift Set that my lovely Sister in Law gave me last Christmas. Again, I really like the scent but would only repurchase in a Gift Set. 

Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Lotion & Body Butter: I absolutely adore the scent of any cocoa butter products and I love how moisturising both of these products are. They are effective and inexpensive so I will definitely repurchase.


Soap & Glory Hand Maid - I always have one of these anti-bacterial hand gels in my handbag. I love the scent and it does the job! I will definitely repurchase.

Cowshed Lippy Cow Lip Balm - I always prefer lip balms in tubs rather than pots and this one is definitely very moisturising. I have a few lip balms in my collection so I don't need to purchase one at the moment but I will probably repurchase at some point.

Nars Pro Prime Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base - despite having very dry skin, I have oily eyelids so I always wear a primer. For me, this is my absolute favourite eye primer ever - it really makes my eyeshadow stay put and extends the length of wear of all eyeshadows! I will definitely repurchase.

I absolutely love reading empties posts because I think if beauty junkies actually finish products, they must be pretty good. What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below?

Thanks for reading!
