December Empties


Estee Lauder Idealist - I love this serum. It makes my skin look so smooth, I'll definitely be buying it again.

Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser - This is okay but I wouldn't buy it again. It's too harsh for a cleanser and not scrubby enough for a scrub. I've used two tubes of this and it's just meh.


Ardell Brow Sculpting Gel - My favourite brow gel. It's cheap and I buy it over and over again.

wotnot Facial Wipes - The best facial wipes I've ever used, will definitely be buying more of these. wotnot are sending me 8 packets of wipes for a blog giveaway, so keep your eye out early next year for the comp.

Eminence Organic Lemon Cleanser - This was nice, but as there was only enough for one use I can't say if I'd repurchase it again or not. It smells lovely!

MD Formulations Moisture Defense Antioxidant Treatment Masque - I won't buy this again. It's expensive and doesn't do anything that a $20 mask doesn't do. I find that it can also be quite irritating on my skin. 


Ojon Hydrating Thickening Conditioner - Smells lovely but I didn't notice any thickening. If it was cheaper I might buy it but as it's expensive I won't bother (especially since Living Proof is coming out with a thickening range soon!)

Subtle Energies Saffron and Frankincense Facial Scrub - This smells gorgeous and was gentle yet effective. I'd be very interested in trying the full size.


Subtle energies Juhi Replenishing Milk Cleanser - This smells gorgeous too. it was gentle and yet cleansed well. I'd like to buy the full size to try it out.

Kosmea Purifying Cream Cleanser - This cleanser worked well, but I didn't like the scent so probably wouldn't purchase the full size.

  1. Morning, I've been looking for an eyebrow gel actually but didn't want to spend heaps on the Benefit one... where do you get the Ardell one from?

  4. Lilit, you can get Ardell from Priceline, it's usually next to the nail products.

    Kat, thanks for letting me know about your giveaway. I have Advanced Night Repair that I'm about to start using so I'll let you know how I go with it. My understanding is that they're for different things, ANR is for anti aging and Idealist is for smoothing and pore minimising.

    Jessica, you always do so well with your empties! I was lucky and had a particularly good month this month, let's hope it continues.

  5. I love these posts! I have actually started writing about empties myself after reading your blog and I find that my readers have enjoyed it also. I wish all beauty blogger would do so.

  6. Good work!

    I know that smell you're talking about with Kosmea cream cleanser. for some reason, their clarifying cleanser smells much better (kinda like turkish delight)
