November Empties

November Empties - Sweetaholic Beauty

October was such a long month for me, yet November seemed to go by in a heartbeat. I have mostly had a good month; my partner's health has improved enough for me to start getting some sleep again. My sister is inching closer and closer to giving birth to my first nephew, and Christmas is looming near. 

November Empties - Sweetaholic Beauty

I was incredibly worried that I didn't use up enough products to even feature my Empties this month, but I was pleasantly surprised when I stacked everything together.


November Empties - Sweetaholic Beauty

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Shampoo & Conditioner*
I was sent this as a PR sample a long time ago, but never had blonde hair so it kind of went to waste. But as I'd had my hair light temporarily as I was bleaching it to a lighter colour, I figure I would try this duo in between. It definitely helped the progress of my blonde hair, but it wasn't the best blonde shampoo I've used. (I was born naturally with strawberry blonde hair and have lightened it before using this kind of product.)

Would I repurchase? No because I no longer have blonde hair, but I might consider using it again if I went through the bleaching process again.

Simply Gentle Organic Cotton Pads*

I received this pack in a PR package from Rosehip Plus. Not sure where I can buy them however, as I loved them and would really love to stock up more. They were nice and thick, but had a natural feel to it, and didn't aggravate my skin.

Would I repurchase? If I knew where to buy them, yes!

Lush Cosmetics X-Mas Kisses


This was a bubble bar, and it was gorgeous. It was very Christmas like and smelt like cinnamon, and was perfection on a cold night. I wish I had stocked up on more, hopefully my local store isn't sold out!

Would I repurchase?
Definitely - perfect for winter nights.

Colgate Total Tartar Control Dental Floss

I need dental floss in my life. Fun fact about myself - I'm really bad with my dental hygiene and as a result my teeth are not the best. I've always been prone to sleep walking, and during my teenage years, I would be known to floss in my sleep. I'm not sure if I still do it as my partner is a heavy sleeper and there's nobody else to tell me if I'm doing it. Basically Colgate tastes the best, so I opt for this one.

Would I repurchase? Yes, as I need to floss.

Original Source Moisturising Shower Skin Quench in Watermelon and Jojoba Oil
I actually won this on the Original Source Facebook page, and was pretty stoked when it arrived. To be honest I only used this a handful of times as my partner decided it was his, and used up the whole bottle. This one smelt incredible and was really moisturising, so I can see why he liked it.

Would I repurchase? I may do if I'm in need of something cheap.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Exfoliating Facial Scrub*

I've been using this on and off since I received it, but it's one of my favourites for when I really want to get scrubby with my skin. I've written a full review here.

Would I repurchase? I have a few other scrubs to use up but I'd definitely be keen on using this one again.

I'm pretty satisfied with my empties this month. I fear next month I may even have some makeup products, as I'm running dangerously low on my favourite foundation right now.

Have you tried any of the above products? If so, what did you think? Have you written an empties post for last month?

  2. I am quite liking some of the Palmers facial care range and of course the scent helps too! I haven't tried their scrub yet but it sounds like I would like it!
