My Beauty Empties: What I’d Replace Even Before They Ran Out

I always have a wishlist in my phone when it comes to beauty, especially skincare as there’s always something to lust after. Whether it’s a new must-have or that old time favourite you just can’t live without, there’s never a time when it comes to payday and I don’t already have something in my shopping basket. Being in the blogger world or being a beauty fanatic, we’re always going to want to newest things and sometimes we feel as if it’s the answer to great skin or that damn good highlight but at the end of the day, it’s just another product that does exactly the same as the last. Of course there will be new products that blow your mind and it brings so much joy in knowing that you have it, but other times that new product you’ve been waiting to buy since, what feels like forever, gets pushed to the back of the drawer without even a second glance. Then there’s my trusted everyday essentials that I just can’t get enough of and that I’d replace in a heartbeat. Here’s my Beauty Empties: What I’d replace even before they ran out.

Vichy Purete Thermale Perfecting Toner (£12.00, 200ml)

This is honestly one of those products I’ve tried to make last as long as I can, despite my last discussion on the whole ‘shall we still use toners,’ because on the days my skin needs it, oh does it make a difference. It leaves my skin clean, toned, even and adds a little glow to all the right places. If my skin is lacking a bit of, well, life, then it’s this trusty product I always reach for. That and a facemask.

Murad Advanced Active Radiance Serum (£80, 30ml)

Ok, now I have to be honest. This is the best skincare product I have ever had the beauty of trying. I’ve loved every single pump I’ve managed to cover my face with and the fact that I no longer have any left has literally broken my heart. This has done wonders, not only for my skin but for my confidence too. The vitamin c rich serum, which I’ve blagged about before, has improved my acne, my scars and also my pigmentation. I can’t wait until the day my new one arrives in the post.

Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream (£54, 100ml)

This is one of those products that you never knew you needed, or don’t realise you’ve used so much until you come to use it one morning and nothing comes out. It’s been my go-to product throughout all of this humid one minute it’s so bloody hot I can’t even cope to oh god it’s so windy I’m just going to take cover under my duvet type of weathers. It treats my skin with so much conditioning and hydration that it’s become a staple in my morning skincare routine.

E.L.F Oil Control Primer Mist (£9, 30ml)

Blended with cucumber and vitamins B and E, this refreshing primer mist helps to refresh and hydrate skin. I use this all the time! As my final skincare step, for when my face is covered in oil or if it’s looking a bit too dry – it helps balance everything. I keep this in my bag ready for those 11am and 3pm wake up calls (and to avoid the horrid oily/dry patchy complexion).

Revolution Conceal & Define (£4)

What once broke the internet and took me weeks to finally get my hands on one, was this very affordable concealer that actually worked to conceal, even the most harsh pigmentation spots. This is definitely one product I can afford, multiple times, to order in bulk because once I come across something that actually manages to conceal my mess of a face then I’m sold and it will always be something I will be stocked up on. It’s also great for pairing with another concealer if you don’t want to wear a foundation for the day.

Any products you just can’t live without at the moment?
