[Review] Empties #1

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend (and a LONG one if you're in Ireland... not sure if everyone else got the Monday off!)

SO here is my FIRST post on empties!! I don't know about anyone else, but my products seem to last a lift time, thus finishing anything is like a huge accomplishment for me!


Products:
No.7 Protect and Perfect Night Cream
No.7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream
No.7 Protect and Perfect Serum
Elizabeth Arden 8 hour lip protectant
Vichy Aqualia Thermal 24 hour hydrating care
Elizabeth Arden Perpetual Moisture 24 Eye Cream
Twinnings Cranberry Green Tea

Lets start with the reviews one by one!

No.7 Protect and Perfect Day and Night Cream
Thoughts: I really liked these products as they really moisturized my face throughout the day! They also have SPF15 giving me some protection from the sun which is nice. :) I only noticed AFTER the creams were used up that my "fine lines" were barely noticeable! SO I guess that is a big bonus! I used this cream with the serum!
Recommend? I would recommend it if you are looking for a good anti-ageing cream. Boots say that the "Protect and Perfect" range is for the age group 25-30. :)

No.7 Protect and Perfect Serum
Thoughts: I never used to consider serums because I thought they were waste of money, but this serum has really reduced my fine lines! I used it after washing my face and I'd use the day/night cream over that after. 
Recommend? Yes :)

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour lip protectant
Thoughts: I really liked this because it does keeps your lips super moisturized and the application is so smooth and it comes out clear! Also having SPF 15 is a plus!
Recommend? I bought this one on sale for 5 euro, but I think at full price it's a bit pricey. I'm sure there are lip protectant out there that's cheaper and works just as well.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal 24 hour hydrating care
Thoughts: This was a sample size but I do like it. It does what it says, hydrating the skin. I had this in my wash bag for when I was out and loved this because it kept my skin feeling hydrated all day long!
Recommend? I'd recommend it, but I probably wouldn't buy it because it's quite expensive. I'm sure there are other creams out in the market that does the same thing for half the price because all it does is just hydrate your skin.


Elizabeth Arden Perpetual Moisture 24 Eye Cream
Thoughts: My first eye cream I bought when I was in Hong Kong. It was on sale down to 15 euro so I thought I'd give it a go seeing as my auntie there is always telling me I need to look after the skin under my eyes because there's lots of fine lines there... *sigh* Well, what can I say. It was OK. All it did was moisturize the skin around the eye area. There's nothing special about it. But I guess keeping the skin around the eyes moisturized does help prevent wrinkles. 
Recommend? No. At the price you are paying for this you might as well get an eye cream that has anti-ageing properties. 

Twinnings Cranberry Green Tea
Thoughts: I drink a lot of green tea these days because it's better for you than milk tea or coffee, also it doesn't stain your teeth! :) At first, I didn't really like the taste because it was just weird, but after a few cups, I started to enjoy it more and now I love it! 
Recommend? Yes! If you want something different from your usual green tea, I would definitely recommend this! You might think it tastes weird the first few times, but give it time, you will come to really enjoy it! Nom nom :)

So there you have it! My first empties post with their reviews! :)

Hope you enjoyed it and if there's anything I can improve on with this kind of post to make it more enjoyable to read or even just make it better please comment and let me know.

Lots of love,

I love your template to by the way :) I know that you mainly do beauty posts but I'd really like it if you did the Favourites Tag that I've recently done on my blog?
