February’s Empties

C: apologies for this being slightly late/the lack of posts… Our internet hasn’t been working which super sucks (mainly for the lack of Netflix or cat videos). This month hasn’t been particularly successful on the empties front, with only 7 items being finished! It’s one of those months where loads of things are running out but aren’t quite finished so hopefully next month will be a winner! 

  
Original Source Vanilla & Raspberry Showergel – I get one of these every year in my Christmas stocking from the mother2 and I love it! It smells amazing and lathers up super well.

Repurchase? I would do if I use up my shower stash before next Christmas! 

The Body Shop Ginger Anti-Dandruff Shampoo – I started using this when I had hormonal scalp issuess when preggo and I love it. I don’t have any scalp problems now but when I stopped using it I realised other products were making my scalp sore so I went back to this. It’s truly amazing. 

Repurchase? Already have. 

The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish – both L and I always use this. It’s perfect at keeping skin smooth and smells nice! 

Repurchase? Yes. 

  
Rimmel 60 Secs Nail Polish in 310 Red Carpet – yeah that’s right… I actually used up a nail polish! Pretty pleased with myself about this one as my nail stash is getting pretty out of control and I always get bored of colours after a couple of uses! This was the standard quality you expect from Rimmel, a 3 day manicure that was easy to achieve. 

Repurchase? Would happily buy Rimmel polishes again if my stash ever diminishes. 

Loreal Revitalist Multiactive Daily Moisturiser- another product im impressed I used up! I have been trying to use up the many moisturisers I have received in beauty boxes and this was first to go. It’s too thick for every day use but at night it did a great job of keeping my skin moisturised. No idea if it helps with anti aging cos I like to think I’m not old yet.

Repurchase? It isn’t the sort of product I need so no. 

Molton Brown Rhubarb and Rose Hand Cream- I loved this! It smells amazing and did a great job of keeping my hands from getting dry! 

Repurchase? Yes if I ever use up the hand creams I have stashed away.

English Laundry perfume- I received this in a birchbox and I love it so had been using it on special occasions only. It smells so sweet but sophisticated! 

Repurchase? I would if I’m ever richbut I think it’s too much for me to spend on a perfume! I might ask for it for Christmas or something though!

So there we have my slightly disappointing but mainly positive empties! Let me know if you agree with my mini reviews! #twolittleowls

The August Cohorted Beauty Box! 

C: Hi guys, an exciting day today…. I finally got my August cohorted box! I say finally as I ordered this on like the 20th July or something before they went out of stock and I’ve been super excited to get it! Apparently they were all dispatched on the 10th, so really delivery was super quick! So here is what I got:


So first up, I love the packaging! Sleek but looks super high end and beautiful! Not normally keen on the whole black/white theme but it works well and I enjoy the ribbon! Everything is also safely encased in shredded black paper to keep all your goodies safe!


Bare Minerals Bare Vitamins Skin Rev-er Upper RRP £15 – basically a skin perfector that also helps extend the wear of your foundation. This is one of the items I am most excited about trying! I haven’t used anything similar to this before and I love bare minerals as a brand so a thumbs up from me!

Bare Minerals Soft Focus Face Brush RRP £20 – another item I am pleased to receive, I love new make up brushes! This is super soft and I can’t wait to try it out! It seems like the perfect powder brush.


Cargo Eye Colour Quad Palette RRP £10 – when I first opened this I assumed from the colours that this was a blusher/bronzer palette! They don’t seem very eyeshadow like colours to me… But I haven’t tried anything from this brand before so I shall certainly be trying these out!

Molton Brown Relaxing Yuan Zhi Body Cream RRP £6 – I was a little disappointed with this addition to the box just because it is tiny! I don’t think I will even get two uses out of this, which isn’t much use when deciding if you like a product! I have however used Molton Brown body lotions before so I know I will love this, but if you hadn’t it would be hard to get a feel for the product!


Laura Geller Baked Impressions Duo Eyeshadow RRP £15 – I actually love the colours in this and don’t have anything similar in my collection, so I shall definitely be doing a FOTD using this!

So there we have the August Cohorted box, which contains £66 worth of products so is great value for money! My only criticism is that I got 6 eye shadows! I feel like there could have been a little more variety to the box, as I would have preferred a more diverse selection of products! What do you guys think of the Cohorted box? #twolittleowls 

What’s in Annie’s handbag?

A: I love these posts (mainly because I’m incredibly nosey) so I thought I would let you all have a nose in my handbag too!

Admittedly, I’m am probably the most unorganised person in the world.

Literally nothing in my life is tidy, there’s always pens and random receipts in my handbag and I never keep my make up in make up case, it all just rattles around together! I don’t carry all my make up with me, but I always have my Bare Minerals mineral veil and flawless face brush, these are perfect if you need to get rid of some of the sneaky shine that appears from nowhere! I also have the sample size of my Porefessional with me because it’s perfect for touch ups. I’ve got my Model Co lipstick with me today, this is a staple in my bag, but if I’m wearing a different lipstick I’ll carry that too. I always have a blusher too – one with a mirror!! This Elf one is perfect. My tangle teezer is a must for my unruly mop and this Molton Brown Rose and Rhubarb hand lotion is my new favourite thing (it was in my Birchbox this month and it smells amazing!!!) Other than my trust purse, keys and kindle combo that’s my handbag summed up!

What are your handbag must haves? #twolittleowls
