Im sharing my empties for the last 2 months today and I have a lot to say! Lets begin. As you know Im doing an empties challenge this year which is 500 empties by 31st Dec 2024! its a lot I know lol but I have broken this down into tiers:
Target- 500 empties ( approx 41.6 products a month)
Tier 1- 400 ( approx 33.3 products a month)
Tier 2- 366 ( approx 1 empty a day for the year)
Tier 3- 213 ( this was my final empties I got last year)

Empties this month– 42. Cumulative total- 92

Any reviews I have written up will be linked

Hair &Body

  • Cantu sulfate free cleansing cream shampoo- this was good for my hair but towards the end, I started using it to cleanse my brushes and it works so great for that!
  • Tresemme keratin smooth heat protection- the only brand i trust for heat protection this one is really nice and added keratin helps to strengthen the hair
  • Cantu Guava Ginger & rice protein- I think this has been discontinued and rightly so because it did nada to the hair.
  • Briogeo Dont Despair repair shampoo- this was a good trial size which lasted 2 washes. I really like the shampoo, suds well and doesnt strip the hair. Mine came in a gift set like this one
  • Olapex No5- this is one of my fav products from Olapex! all my thoughts on the brand and how it performs on natural hair can be found here. if you haven’t tried it and you are a regular heat user, this will be very beneficial. Its pricey but a good investment and you can get a trial kit first like i did.
  • Mitchum mens roll on
  • Garnier and Vaseline body lotions
  • Naturium glow getter body wash- this was a bit disappointing to use. I thought it would like my skin hydrated and glowing but it just didnt wow me and leave it any different
  • Marc Jacobs Decadence


  • Samples of Milk hydrogrip- so happy I finally tried this primer and 100% can understand the hype. ITS GOOD! I’m buying this later this year when I finish a few more primers! Mac Prep & prime natural radiance- a nice glowy base for makeup which I love travelling with
  • Kiss Falscara- this new and improved version is PANTS! I used to love these lashes and regular did them at home until the new & improved versions. They don’t come off easily and they almost always split, I think they changed the glue they use. I’ve switched to something else but I still have half a pack of the Kiss ones to finish. I don’t recommend them anymore because I wasted a few lashes trying to take them out
  • Nyx dewy setting spray– yes and yes. at £6 its one of the best setting sprays in boots that sets makeup and gives a nice finish to makeup
  • Primark makeup cleansing cloths- the only ones I use and I think primark have stopped doing these too!
  • superdrug baby wipes

Creams & Serums

  • Farmacy Honey drop *- this was such a disappointment! Its a lovely thick cream but for me( and coming off the Skin Fix peptide moisturiser) I didn’t find this moisturizing enough. I didn’t think it made any difference to my skin either. It layers well and doesn’t pill
  • Sephora brightening eye cream *- this was ok. its nice and hydrating but it didnt make a difference to dark circles
  • Ole Henriksen peptide trainer- I wanted to try this moisturiser as I’m looking for other peptide moisturisers to add to my arsenal. This is a lovely one, suitable for warmer weather but not quite enough for me. Happy to repurchase this travel size if a good offer is on but i wont buy the full size
  • Tatcha Dewy cream– urgh this cream is everything! its part of the mini fav gift set i got last christmas, you can find my full review on this and other Tatcha products here
  • Sample sizes- elemis pro collagen marine cream, Kiehls ultra facial cream, Zelens 3t complex
  • Ramsou bifida x4- this is a lovely serum i got initially as a dupe for ANR but its not. find out why in my full review here
  • Minimalist Vit C,E & ferulic- full review here
  • The ordinary multi peptide- this is my 2nd bottle and my go to peptide serum.
  • sample sizes- Lancone, Bodyshop

Toners, Cleansers, Masks

  • Pyunkang Yul essence toner- this is such a popular k beauty toner but I really dont get the hype. I didnt find it hydrating nor it did make any lasting difference to my skin. happy i got the mini size as a trial
  • Artistry Hydrating toner- this was a lovely toner packed with amamzing ingredients to hydrate & soothe the skin.
  • Cosrx Propolis Synergy Toner- a lovely toner from Cosrx. This is another popular toner and i can see why. its soothing and hydrating and pairs well with all actives
  • Fenty fat water– Ive used a few bottles of this. heavily scented but if you dont mind that, it is nice and hydrating
  • Tatcha essence- full review here
  • Tatcha cleansing oil- full review here
  • Elemis dynamic resurfacing cleanser- Ive used this cleanser before and i really loved it. it came in a gift set with the other Elemis cleanser ( Pro collagen energing cleanser) and 2 cleansing balms
  • Elemis pro collagen cleansing balms *- a cult fav and i really see why. Its very nice at removing all traces of makeup without drying out the skin
  • Bodyshop camomile cleanser- a nice makeup removing balm but struggles a bit with masacara
  • I’m From Honey mask- another popular k beauty item but so disappinting to me. my full review is here

With 6 months to go, I really need to step up my game with these empties lool. Im not even half way of my tier 3 goal sigh
