EMPTIES #3 | SKINCARE & HAIRCARE

Good morning! I have fair amount of empties piling up. Is it just me, or everything tends to run out at the same time? 

Rainbow Research, Henna, 100% Botanical Hair Color and Conditioner in Persian Red

I have been using henna to colour my hair for the last 5 years. This particular brand for 4 years. For the last year I have been using this one – Persian Red, but before, Persian Mahogany was my first choice. I thought of going back to the Mahogany one, but I have ordered Burgundy by mistake. We’ll see how that one will go.

The main reason I love henna hair colour is the fact, that it doesn’t fade. It might when you first start using it, but with time when you are layering the colour, it only gets more intense. No hair damage ant shiny hair afterwards is also a big plus.

I get mine from iherb.com, for $6, I get enough to colour my hair 3 times. It’s a bargain. You might use code UBI920 to get discount if you’re shopping for the first time.

Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner

I did enjoy using this one, but it’s not something I would repurchase. I feel like it’s targeted more for sensitive skin, and mine needs a little bit more. Since I finished this one, I have been using Noreva Exfoliac Lotion (more here) and haven’t looked back. The fact, that Noreva is cheaper helps too.

Avene Thermale Spring Water Spray

I was carrying this in my handbag for when I needed a pick quick refresh. It feels amazing to spray cool water on your face when you are dead tired. I actually have a big bottle of this at home, but I think I’ll get a new one to take with me.

First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay

It took me a ridiculous amount of time to finish this one up. It might be because I was using it only in the evenings, but still… It’s a great cleanser. Your skin feels clean, but not dried out, which is my main problem with most of the cleansers. My skin is dehydrated by itself, it certainly doesn’t need any help.

Scwarzkopf BC Bonacure Hairtherapy Moisture Kick Spray Conditioner

I purchased this one when my hair was feeling rather dry. It definitely kicked some moisture into my hair and smelled amazing too. 

Pharmaceris Duo-Active Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream Opti-Sensilium

This was a life saver during my extremely dry under eye period. And I mean extremely. It actually would start to hurt a little in the middle of the day and all you could think would be getting some moisture on. I am not even talking about cakey under eye concealer, at that point that was the least of my problems. The reason I liked this one is that it would sit for quite a while on your skin and absorb slowly, but amount of moisture would keep me through the day. After continuous usage my under eyes are better now. Still dry, but in a normal way. 

Garnier Fructis Ultra-Care rinse out mask

I have gone through 3 of these (other two are in the trash can, sorry). It’s a great hair mask. It leaves your hair soft and moisturised. I considered repurchasing, but after 3 tubes of these, I just wanted to try something new. And not in a tube, it’s a nightmare trying to squeeze the last of it out.

Etude House AC Clinic White Trouble Bubble Cleanser

I bought this ages ago. It had been standing half full for almost a year. I don’t even know why I haven’t finished it at once. If you looking for something gentle and soothing this is the one to try. It won’t remove your make up (that’s what make up remover is for) and smells…well clinical. Not straight out tea tree, but something alike.
