October Empties



Yet another month of 2012 is over, and I have a few empty goodies to show off! I had no empties last month aside from make-up removal wipes, so there was no point in just showing you that!



Listerine Total Care Mouth Wash 500ml

Both my boyfriend and I finished this off. I use Listerine day and night, and so eventually we got to the bottom of this! I prefer the Total Care, as it has the 6 benefits in one (don't ask me what they all are, but I know it includes whitening, etc.) and I prefer the taste of this one as opposed to the green mouthwash. Would I repurchase? Yes, again and again! I even have a mini bottle at work.



Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation in Ivory

When this hit the stores, it quickly became my favourite foundation! While I will try other brands, more often than not, I will drift back to my favourite Rimmel London foundations! Sadly I think this bottle is a bit too small, and would absolutely love it if they released a bigger bottle! My sister has already gone through two bottles! Would I repurchase? Yes, I already have! 



Dove Minimising Anti-Perspirant Deodorant in Wild Rose

I'll tell you right now, I absolutely hate roll-on deoderants. I despise them! I find the whole idea of rolling something onto my armpit the most unlady like thing ever, and I will not do it in front of my boyfriend! But, I love this one. I only purchased it because it was 99 cents at Priceline, and the boyfriend and I were going away for a weekend, so I thought this would be easier. You can read my entire rave here.

Would I repurchase? Yes, and I have. I have backups for my backups! I need this baby! 



Bathox Bath Foam & Shower Gel - Milk & Honey

My boyfriend suffers from very, very dry skin and has eczema on his hands quite badly. Sadly, a lot of my body wash doesn't help, so he went out and purchased this, which is specifically designed for dry skin. To be honest, I'm not sure if it's helped a lot, but it hasn't aggravated his skin which is certainly a good thing. The reason I'm including it in MY empties, is because, well, I emptied it! That's right, I fell in love with the scent and texture, and ended up using most of it! We've already bought another one, and this time I'll be more sparing! I just couldn't help myself! So if you love the smell of milk & honey, try out this one! 



Bioré Gentle Make-up Removing Wipes

These would have to be my favourite beauty wipes. They're not too strong on my face and they're perfect for sensitive skin! You can read my full review here. Would I repurchase? Yes! 



Egyptian Magic Cream

I originally purchased this for my boyfriend's skin condition, as I'd heard fabulous things, but since trying it, I fell in love! It really did help with my oily skin, and while I don't use it every day, I try to use it at least once a week, all over, to keep my skin beautiful during our winter months! You can read my full review on this cream here. Would I repurchase? I definitely would!



John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Shampoo & Conditioner

I'm really torn about this product. I absolutely love John Frieda products, and I thought I'd love this. I didn't hate it. I have black hair, and when I say that, I mean I dye it black. It's usually a brown anyway. I found that by using this shampoo and conditioner after dying my hair, it completely washed it out after just one wash, and my hair was back to brown. In saying that though, it did make my brown hair look exceptionally lovely, making it really pop!
Would I repurchase? Yes, but only if I had brown hair at the time. At the moment I have a blackish purple, so this would be no good for me at all.



Bioré
 Daily Detoxifying Scrub

I laugh at myself when I see how destroyed this little tube is! I tried my best to get every single bit of the product out! I really loved using this one! You can read my full review here.
Would I repurchase? Yes, although I'm definitely going to try a few more cleansers before buying!

So at the end of October, I had a fair few empties! I was proud of myself for finishing them all off!
What did you think of them? Have you tried any of these products before?

    1. I'm usually terrible as well, it wasn't until I really got into blogging that I thought: "Hey maybe I should finish a product before starting a new one." That's really hard still though lol!

  7. Oh no, that's too bad the John Frieda washed out the black! Guess it's a better option for brunettes without hair that's been dyed darker. I have been only hearing good reviews about the Rimmel foundation. I definitely would pick it up if I didn't already have way too many foundations already :p

    1. Yeah definitely, I kind of expected it so I'm not too disappointed! :)
      Haha I felt the same way but grabbed it anyway, since most of mine were cheapy ones anyway, so happy I did! :P

      Biore is awesome, definitely try their wipes out! You should give the Wake Me Up a go too, I've only heard a small number of people who said it didn't do much for them, so hopefully you'll have great results :)
