October Empties


My empties for this month:
No7 Lift & Luminate Eye Cream | Sure Roll-On Deodorant in Clear Aqua | Skinetica Anti-Blemish | Nivea Facial Cleansing Wipes | Dettol with e45 Hand Wash | Alison Claire Remarkable Mango Body Butter | MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW20 | Dermalogica UltraCalming Mist | Soap&Glory Flirtigo Spray-On Body Moisturising Mist | Lush Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion | Rituals Magic Touch Cherry Blossom & Rice Milk Body Cream | Calvin Klein Sheer Lipstick in Luxe | TheBodyShop Hemp Body Butter | TheBodyShop Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub | Soap&Glory Night in Shining Armour Night Cream | Avon Planet Spa Illuminating Body Lotion in Japanese Sake & Rice | Philosophy Purity Cleanser for Face & Eyes | MAC Brush Cleanser

Dermalogica UltraCalming Mist (£27.60)* - I received this sample toner to try out (see this post) It gives a really nice, even, primed feel to my skin ready for my next skincare step. Considering it's such a sensitive mist, it's still fantastic at removing any leftover makeup, cleanser or impurities on my skin and feels nice and gentle and not too drying. I'd definitely use again, but I'm not sure I'd purchase again as it's quite expensive!

No7 Lift & Luminate Eye Cream (£16.00) -  This was nice to use, although didn't work miracles for me. Read my full review here.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW20 (£21.50) - My daily foundation. Big fan, no sooner as I run out do I have another bottle on the go. Love this stuff!

TheBodyShop Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub (Now £5.00) - I bought this when it came out at the end of the summer, limited edition. I love TheBodyShop's scrubs as I love how 'scrubby' they are, they really do scrub your skin!  

Soap&Glory Flirtigo Spray-On Moisturising Mist (£6.50)* - This is now known as 'Girligo' - I have no end of bottles of this stuff, they always seem to come in gift sets. I use it after I've put on my deodorant under my arms to keep them nice and soft then spray all over, it's not an amazing product but as with all S&G products, smells amazing!

Nivea Facial Cleansing Wipes (£3.09) - I use face wipes as my first step of my night time routine, I know I know, they're not great, but I find them the best way to remove my make up before cleansing properly. I always have a pack in my bedside cabinet. 

Sure Roll-On Deodorant in Clear Aqua Crystal  (£1.79) - Can't fault this, does exactly what it's meant to! :)

Dettol with E45 Hand Wash (£2.50)* - I loved this, really soft & smooth. Read my full review here.

Rituals Magic Touch Cherry Blossom & Rice Milk Body Cream (£17.00) - I bought the full size after trying out the smaller size, which I loved. Unfortunately it wasn't the same consistency. Although it's a lovely cream with a nice, fresh smell, I'm not sure it's worth the price tag. Read my full review here

MAC Brush Cleanser (£10.00) - I use this cleanser to spot clean my brushes twice a week (read how here) - I've yet to use a better brush cleanser! 

Philosophy Purity Cleanser for Face & Eyes (From £8.00) - I received this sample pot in a beauty box, and I loved using it! It claims to cleanse, tone, melt make up and hydrate the skin, and it removed any make up and dirt on my face and I loved the feel it left on my skin afterwards. I'd definitely re-purchase this in the future! 

Soap&Glory Night in Shining Armour Night Cream - I really loved using this as a night cream, it smelt and felt amazing on my skin. I can't seem to find it online now though, has it been discontinued? That's so disappointing if it has!
Avon Planet Spa Illuminating Body Lotion in Japanese Sake & Rice - I don't think this is longer available. This was a nice, standard lotion to use after showering.

Calvin Klein Sheer Lipstick in Luxe (Price unknown)* - I received this as a Secret Santa present last year, a gorgeous creamy nude coloured lipstick, really lovely to use!!

TheBodyShop Hemp Body Butter (£13.00)* - I received this as part of the Hemp set for my birthday from a friend. I tried to put off using the body butter as the smell wasn't the best. But when I ran out of body butter, and being on a beauty spending ban meaning I can't purchase anymore, I thought I'd give it a go. It's really thick, I really had to dig my nails in to get hold of some. Although the scent isn't the best, my skin felt great after using.

Skinetica Anti-Blemish (£9.99) - I received this sample bottle in a beauty box a while ago, and it's been amazing as an overnight treatment on any spots or blemishes, I then started to use it as a toner as part of my night time skincare routine. It works great to remove any left over make up or impurities and clear up any blemishes. I received 2 full size bottles in a goody bag lately so was really chuffed!!
Lush's Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion (£1.00) - I like to pick these up when I'm in Lush, as 100% of the proceeds go to good causes. It's a yummy, creamy, cocoa butter and almond oil lotion that I keep beside my bed and use on my hands before bed.

Alison Claire Remarkable Mango Body Butter (£7.99) - I received this small sample pot from a beauty box, I've used this product before in the pump bottle and loved it. I really like Alison Claire, the products are super natural. And this mango butter smells delish!!!


So, as you can see, I got through quite a bit this month!! Let's see what November brings!! ;)
