Empties November 2013

Another big month of Empties for me and I even managed to use up a makeup product!  I have about 10 foundations on the go so this is no easy feat. 

Here's a breakdown on what I used up with my thoughts on each...

You, Me & Everybody Shady Lady SPF30+ Daily Face Milk
I loved this sunblock as it was 30+ but still really nice and light.  It sunk into my skin brilliantly and didn't leave me with that sticky feeling.  I used this up quite quickly as I was using it all over my body as well as my face.

Cocoa Butter Moisturiser Fragrance Free
I do love the original Cocoa Butter scent but I find it can be a bit too overpowering to wear during the day and just makes me want to eat chocolate haha.  I picked this travel size up when I was visiting my parents a few weeks back.  A thick hydrating cream which feels incredible on the skin.

Lush Big Sea Salt Shampoo
My God this stuff is amazing.  When I first tried this I found the texture to be so off-putting but the results are definitely worth it.  This leaves my hair so lovely and clean without stripping it but the best part is the VOLUME!  If you have fine hair, try it and thank me later!

Sanctuary Spa Ultimate Facial Cleansing Oil
Love this cleansing oil and will be going back for more!

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush
Surprise surprise... Not! This is my Holy Grail dry shampoo.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Liquid Foundation
This is a fantastic full coverage foundation that manages to not go cakey on my skin.  Am sad to have finished this and I'm still debating whether or not to pick up a new one or try something different.  I do love this product and highly recommend you try it out if you're after full coverage.

Radox Muscle Soothe
A lovely basic bath soak.  Enough said.

NOW Hyaluronic Acid
I picked this up from iherb when everyone was going crazy for Hydraluron.  I figured it would be the same but less than half the price.  I have no idea if it's the same or night but I used it under my moisturiser at night and noticed a subtle difference in the hydration on my skin.  I still think I'll probably fall under the hype and try the Hydraluron and see if there is actually a difference.  I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for reading

  2. oooh that cleansing oil sounds really good!

  3. Hmmm I've never heard of the Now brand. It sounds great.

    I like the Sanctuary Spa oil, but adore the Dr LeWinn's one as it isn't mineral oil based. It's full of amazing oils instead. You should check it out.

  4. I've heard really good things about the Sanctuary Spa oil - that's a good lot to have finished in one month!
