October 2012 Empties

29 Oct 2012

It's that time of the month again, when everyone is putting up their empties and favourites posts! I got through so much in October, a total of 30 products! Pretty good going I think!

The Ojon Dry Cleanser is basically a dry shampoo. I really liked this, but I found as it neared the end, it wasn't so dry and instead was spraying out as a wet spray! And for that reason and that reason alone, I wouldn't repurchase! I finished Two Aussie products this month, a travel size of the Miracle Moist shampoo and a full sized 3 Minute Miracle Luscious Long Deep Treatment mask. I adore Aussie products and the 3 Minute Miracle mask is something I will always repurchase and turn to when I want a really good conditioning treatment. It leaves my hair feeling amazingly soft! I was given a sample of BIG from Lush at the Nottingham #bbloggers meetup and it was enough for one use, but I really liked it so I did go and buy the full sized a couple of days later when I was in the Covent Garden Lush shop! I finally finished my E.l.f. Brush Shampoo, too. I say finally as I've had it since last Christmas. So it's a very long lasting product but I wouldn't repurchase this because I find that using Carex hand soap works just as well as this does. I also finished a Pomegranate Body Butter from Pamper and Preen. It's from an Etsy shop and I love their body butters. They smell great, they feel great and they are incredibly cheap. I particularly love using their body butters on my tattoos because they really make the colours stand out! I was pretty devastated (quite seriously) when I finished my Love Your Skin collagen body moisturising gel. I adored using this product and I've also reviewed it, which you can read here. I will repurchase this, but first I want to look in to what other gel moisturisers are available.

I finished a few boring things this month too. A Gillette Satin Care shave gel, Sally Hansen Moisturising Polish Remover, Colgate MaxFresh and White Glo toothpaste. I've mentioned most of these in empties posts before so I won't go in to them but I wanted to add them to the post! I also finished a Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel from The Body Shop, which smells utterly amazing and I would definitely repurchase this when I need a new shower gel. The Betty Buff Rosey Posey sugar scrub has stuck around a while because I found it was perfect for my elbows and knees so I was using it towards the end purely for that! I finished off the Gorgeous by Gok Wan Rich Moisturising body butter, which came with the body scrub I had in last month's favourites. It has the same scent and it is really lovely. I'm going to need to stock up on Gok Wan this Christmas! I got two Sai-Sei samples at the Nottingham #bbloggers meetup too, from Space NK. I got a sample of the Mineral Deep Moisture Body Cream and the Mineral Invigorate Body Scrub. I have to be honest, I didn't like either of these and particularly the scent. So I wouldn't repurchase! The Essential Care Organic Rose Moisturiser came in my May Joliebox and I really, really disliked it. It just smelt horrendous and made my skin so oily. So I was so glad when this was finally finished! I finished off the YSL Touch Eclat foundation sample I got ages ago, it was meant to last 7 days but lasted so much longer for me and the shade of the sample I had was B40. I have purchased a full size of this foundation, but in shade B50. I finished of a bottle of Nailtiques Formula 2 which I can genuinely say is the best thing you could ever use for your nails, and I already have another to move on to now this is finished. And another sample I finished was of the Cellnique Advanced Bio Renewal Masque from the October She Said Beauty box. I adored the scent of this, it smelt like forest fruits to me. And I liked it, but I wouldn't repurchase.

Also finished off a shampoo and conditioner sample from Davines Volume Range, again I didn't like these as they really didn't clean my hair and made my hair feel horrible. The Essential Vitamin D3 vitamins from My Vitamins came in my October She Said Beauty box and I've been having one a day, but haven't noticed a difference really. Another sample from the October She Said Beauty box was two sachets of the Biao Beauty Rejuventating Night Creme. So many people moaned about these, yet I managed to make each sachet last five nights, so almost two weeks! And they left my skin feeling so, so soft and lovely! The B-Liv Utmost Moisture mask came with my August Lux Box  and I used it at the time and forgot to pop it in my empties bag. This made me feel very claustrophobic and I have learnt fabric masks are not for me. I also used up another Naked Skin by Urban Decay foundation sample, in shade 4.0, which was slightly less orange on me than the one I mentioned in my September empties and a BRTCCTRB Gold Caviar BB Cream sample, which I really did not like and found impossible to blend in. And finally, I finished off two Weleda body washes, Citrus Creamy Body Wash and Wild Rose Creamy Body Wash. Each of these just had one use left in so I finished them off and they are still utterly lovely! I reviewed these with some other Weleda products and you can read that review, here. 

I'd love to hear what you think to any of these if you have tried them, and if you have done an empties post be sure to leave a link so I can check it out!
