Recent Empties - Soap & Glory, Ojon, YSL & more

I only really do 'empties posts' now and again, usually because I normally forget.  In that being said, here are a few of my recent empties and whether or not I would repurchase:

Ojon Full Detox Shampoo

Ojon detoxifying shampoo cleanses the hair and scalp from impurities and product build up.  It contains Vitamin E, Macadamia and Sunflower seed oil.  Every so often my hair starts to feel really greasy and limp, even after washing.  It loses all oomph and really gets me down.  I took this problem to Twitter where I was given loads of different recommendations.  It is recommended only using this shampoo twice a month for a proper detox, it worked and  I did really like this shampoo but found it extremely expensive so unfortunately I won't be repurchasing it.  Another recommendation I received was adding Bicarbonate of Soda to my shampoo and massaging into the roots of my hair - I am going to give this a try, I am hoping it saves me a few quid.  

YSL All in One BB Cream

My absolute favourite and most used item of Summer 2013 and has definitely earned it's place in my all time favourite products.  Before coming across the YSL BB Cream, bb creams didn't appeal to me in the slightest.  I won't rabbit on about this product as I have reviewed it fully before and it has been included in many a favourites post but it is definitely worth the money and looks amazing on the skin.. Repurchase?  Of course!

Soap & Glory - Archery

This dual ended eyebrow pen has a brush for tinting and a crayon for shading on the other.  This is by far the best eyebrow pencil I have tried and absolutely love it.  It is very natural looking on the brow and extremely affordable to buy.  Repurchase?  Already have!  

Caudalie Paris Beauty Elixir

I received my first ever Caudalie elixir in the Summer 2013 Selfridges Beauty box - after months of eyeing it up on You Tube videos I wasn't disappointed.  The elixir was lovely and refreshing on the skin before the application of moisturiser etc but I also found it great at setting my foundation afterwards.  Repurchase?  I definitely will buy this again when I have a couple of pounds to spare as it is quite pricy.  If they sell this in New York I will definitely pick up a bottle.  Boots in Aberdeen don't stock it unfortunately.  

Smashbox Photofinish Primer

No brainer really.  This is a great primer and I totally believe your foundation sits better when you use one.  Repurchase - yes.  The good thing about this is that smashbox also do a travel size version for the cheaper price of £12.50 and because they last so long you'd be just as well buying that instead of spending the £25 for the full version (not just a hat rack!)

Clarins Multi-Active Day

I love everything about Clarins skin care, and in my opinion Clarins are the best in the skin care business.  The full size moisturiser is far larger than this and comes in a glass tub.  I love having this travel size handy for going away for weekends or holidays.  It is a really nice light moisturiser, suitable for most skins.  I will definitely be repurchasing the travel size very soon.  



  1. The Clarins product looks good.


  2. I can't be without the Caudalie Beauty Elixir and have one with me in my handbag all the time, it's such a great pick me up both for the skin and my mood :o) Xx

  3. This products look lush. I haven't been 100% sold on BB Creams, will have to pop to the YSL counter!
