December Empties


As December, and the year 2012 come to a close, a few of my absolute favourite products have come to an end. Some of these babies have lasted me a long time, so it's sad to see them off, but fun in a way that I will now need to repurchase the ones that are necessary! (If you're concerned about my spending ban - see here - don't be, the only thing I may need to repurchase will be Big, and I have a fresh one already which hopefully will last me the 100 days!)


Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel

I first discovered this gem when my sister purchased me a gift set from Jurlique for my birthday. (early February in 2012) It was only 30ml which lasted me half a year, and after seeing fantastic results, I purchased another 30ml bottle. Unfortunately it has finished up again. Due to my spending ban, I won't be buying it again until I can spend again, and I will have to make due with the rest of my skincare.

Would I repurchase? 
Yes, yes, again and again. This baby is a lifetime product.



Bioré Triple Action Toner

I've been using this since September, and I'm in love with it! The difference it has made to my skin is remarkable! This featured in my 2012 favourites (see here) and will probably continue to do so throughout the years! You can read my full review here.

Would I repurchase?
 Yes! I already have two backup bottles!



Lush Big

I've also been using this for a few months, another of my favourite products that was featured in my 2012 Favourites! (See here) This lasted a ridiculously long time, as you only need the tiniest amount! This product has changed my life!

Would I repurchase? 
Yes, I already have! 


Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Yet another product that was a part of my 2012 Favourites! (here) The Stay Matte will forever be perfect for me, and it's something that just works well time and time again.

Would I repurchase? 
Yes, I have about four extras lying around!



John Frieda Luxurious Volume Dry Shampoo

I picked this up a while ago, and it was actually the only dry shampoo I've ever used that has actually worked for me! I haven't needed to use as often as I used to, due to my hair becoming less oily, however on occasion I will use it, and my boyfriend uses it often too as it doesn't have too much of a girly smell like the other ones. You can read my full review here.

Would I repurchase? 
Yes, I actually have a spare bottle at work, and I'm happy to keep using it!

So there we have it, my empties for the month of December! I really finished up a few of my favourites! I think that's definitely a good ending to the year! Have you finished up any good products lately? Link me to your December empties in the comments below!

    1. Well, it's definitely worth it for me as it worked wonders, but if you don't have super oily hair, I honestly wouldn't bother with it... you can find other fab products for normal/dry hair for far less! Maybe ask for a sample and see how it goes, or ask to try a little bit on a few of your strands in store?
      And I'll definitely join! :)

    1. Yay! It's pretty amazing haha, wish the price was though :P
      AND NO! Don't ever say that lol! If it gets discontinued, we will make a petition to make it STAY! I'm sure practically every other beauty blogger will back us up :P

      Delete
  10. I got the Lush Big today! I decided to get it after you said that you liked it so much :) I'm still on the fence about the Rimmel powder.. Everyone says that it's good but I have so many powders to get through as it is :P

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh yay! I hope you love it :) If you don't, I'll take if off your hands ;) haha
      With the Rimmel powder, I'll be honest... I haven't tried a whole heap of other powders, at least none that impressed me and were cost effective! 2013 is full of new opportunities though :P
      xx

      Delete
    2. Big looks so weird! like.. jelly like fat... lol It kind of weirds me out but I'm gonna give it a go :)

      I love the Bourjois pressed powder which is $20 but always goes on sale at Priceline. I got mine for $14. I also ordered a Dior one recently but the quality will probably be the same as the Bourjois one..

      Delete
    3. Haha I know, I thought the same thing when I first tried it!
      I haven't tried the Bourjois powder, but I think I'd like to!
      Hopefully the Dior is better, because I'm sure it's price is higher :P

      Delete
  11. I really need to try out Big! I kinda have to stop spending aswell though hahaha my bank account is dying.

    1. Hahah I know right, that's why I'm trying the spending ban again.. but I will succeed this time :D
