Empties #16

Balea After Sun Duschgel
This shower gel was also in my last empties back in September. I just find it to be one of the best for summer time (even though I did use it for half of the autumn too). I mostly use this one as a hand soap because it manages to get off the film that body creams/oils/sunscreens leave. Plus it smells nice.

Balea Vanille & Cocos Cremedusche
I had this one in my shower but later, when the After Sun ran out, I started to use this for hands. It's a pretty basic Balea shower gel, quite creamy, nice smelling, but nothing special.

Essence Mattifying Compact Powder
This has been my favourite powder for years, I put it in lots of favourites before. I did buy another backup but when I finished this one I switched to Rimmel's Stay Matte powder. I do this a lot, sometimes I prefer the one from Essence and sometimes the powder from Rimmel, but they are both good and both are cheap.

L.O.V LASHseduction Instant Volume Mascara 100 Seductive Black
I had a mascara clear out, there should be more in this post, for some I forgot to put them in my empties box and I just threw them out. For the past month or so I had some eye infections, so I completely stopped using mascara, I also disinfected everything and threw a bunch of stuff away. Some of the mascaras are quite old but I didn't use them anymore, I just didn't bother to actually throw them away. I did use only the ones that were within the 6 months, but to be safe, I threw them all away. I remember I liked this one from L.O.V but here is a full review.

Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara Waterproof
One of my favourites that I have repurchased so many times, even now, I bought a new one. Here is a review.

Essence Volume Stylist 18h Lash Extension Mascara
This is a mascara that I got in PR (here is a review) and I liked it so much that I bought a replacement. At first, the mascara is very wet and messy, but once it dries for a bit, it's one of the best I have tried. It gives volume to my lashes and makes them look fuller, plus it's cheap.

Maybelline The Rocket Volume Express
I don't even know how long I had this, I found it in one of my drawers. This was my absolute favourite mascara back in the high school days. I remember saving money to buy it every now and then as a treat. Maybelline sadly discontinued it. It was just the best, the brush, the formula, everything.

Balea Icy Berry Bodypeeling
This was a very nice peeling. I said before that the scent was too sweet for me, but I got used to it. Compared to Balea's regular peelings, this one was thicker in consistency and it also left a nourishing layer on the skin.

Essence Camouflage Full Coverage Concealer
One of my favourites, my review is here. Essence discontinued these, so I stocked up and bought two more because I like it so much.

Avon Sun+ After Sun Body Butter
This is my second After Sun Body Butter from Avon that I finished. I like the texture, it's creamy and nourishing but still sinks in quickly. I especially like it for summer days, after I have been in the sun because it's a bit cooling and it should also prevent peeling. Here you can read more.

Garnier Ultra Doux Avocado Oil and Shea Butter Nourishing Hair Mask
I purchased about three-four of these already. I do like it, but for now, I won't repurchase, because I have some more to use up, but maybe in the future.

Avon Sun+ Moisturizing Face Cream
I bought the second Sun+ sunscreen because this one was getting old. It didn't get any weird smell or texture, but once it comes to my face and eyes I don't want to expose them to anything bad, so to be on the safer side, I threw it away. Here you can read more about it. To sum it up, it is one of my favourite face sunsceens because it doesn't leave a greasy film on the skin and it protects the face well.

Balea Frische-Hauch Duschpeeling
I always have at least one Balea peeling in my stash, I really like these. They have a nice consistency and fun scents. I also love the packaging, they are so practical to use directly under shower because they are so easy to open. It's a shame they don't have more of these scents, I only see one or maybe two versions and they normally stay for months. Or maybe that's just in my DM.

Clay Ritual Clay Facial Mask
I always have a clay mask in my collection, this time I used up one from Clay Ritual. I don't see a difference between different brands, I like all of them. I put the mask on my face once a week or every ten or so days to clean my face. Afterwards, I moisturize my face well and my skin is looking glowy and healthier. I would really recommend clay masks (it doesn't matter from which brand) if you have troubled skin (or not, I have pretty healthy skin, dry with occasional imperfections) and I still use it when my skin starts to look a bit dull.

Balea Vitalisierende Maske mit Hyaluron & Kiwi-Extract
I like these small Balea masks. They had a few versions in summer, but now they have different ones. I'm not sure if they are a limited edition or not. I do like them a lot, they feel very refreshing and a bit cooling on the skin. They also moisturize the skin well. If you are interested, here I have a review of a few of their masks.

Balea Straffende Hydrogel Gesichts Maske
I bought this one when it was on sale for 1€ or something similar. This is one of the best face masks I tried from Balea. It left my skin looking brighter and healthier. The sheet was okay, it came in two parts, but the essence was so slippery it was very hard to keep it on my face. Even after half an hour, the sheet was still soaking wet, so I kept it and used the essence in the next days as a serum.

Essence I <3 Trends The Metals Nail Polish 33 Rose Beats
I used to love this nail polish in the summertime. I didn't expect it to be so old, but I just found out that I made a review with swatches two and a half years ago. Since then it dried and I have to throw it away.

Essence The Gel Nail Polish 48 Love Diary
Another one that I loved, I think I will actually repurchase it if it's still available. You can see the swatches here.

Aveo Nagellackentferner Melone
A basic nail polish remover, it removes nails polish quickly. Now I usually use that sponge one, but I still managed to use up this one.
