October Empties

I am an empties machine at the moment, I'm finishing up so many products, it's great! This has been another great month for empties, I'm determined to keep this up. I've been in a spring cleaning mood lately so have been slowly going through my collection and getting rid of products that I don't like or that are old and using half finished products so that I can get rid of them.
Imperial Leather Foamburst foaming shower gel - I really like this. It's a bit of a gimmick in that it comes out a gel and then foams when you rub your hands together and that's why I bought it (I can never resist a novelty product). The scent is beautiful and it's very moisturising, I'll buy it again.

Nivea Visage Sensitive Balance soothing cleansing milk - I used to use this years ago, it's a great, gentle cleanser. Found it in hubbys shower so decided I'd finish it.

Wild Elixir bubble therapy - I loved this but don't think it's available anymore.

Delicious warm vanilla sugar shower gel  - This costs $2.50 from The Reject Shop, can't go wrong for that.

L'Oreal Perfect Clean Glow face scrub - I won't buy this again. It was okay but nothing special. I used it on my body to get rid of it. 

Haus of Gloi Parkin soft bubbling scrub - This is the most amazing scent, I wish it was part of their permanent line.

Face of Australia gentle make-up remover - Love this, I've already purchased another one. I use it to remove all my make-up and it's gentle enough to use on my eyes.

Living Proof Full shampoo, conditioner and thickening cream - I only got one use out of these but loved them. I use and love the No Frizz range and the Full range seems just as good.

Mukti Botanicals gentle facial exfoliant and cleanser - These are both beautiful products, I'll certainly consider purchasing them.

Super 3 Minute facial mask - I love the way this makes my skin feel, however it makes my skin really red and for that reason I won't purchase it.

Guerlain Divinora cream eyeshadow - I've been using this eyeshadow for years, it's my favourite cream eyeshadow. It never creases and the colour is gorgeous. Unfortunately they don't make these anymore, if they did I'd buy another one.

Bloom Rhubarb lip stain - I love this lip stain and have already purchased another one. 

Benefit Bad Gal lash mascara - This is a great mascara, however it smudges on me. I've never had a mascara smudge on me so I'm really surprised that this did. 

Estee Lauder foundation sample - I wish I knew which Estee Lauder foundation this was because I really liked it.

Burt's Bees cranberry and pomegranate sugar scrub - This wasn't a favourite. It's very hydrating so would be great for dry skin, however I don't like scrubs that leave an oily film on my skin. 

Rexona Sport Women deodorant - This was a total disapointment. I've used the male version for years so was hoping that the female version would be just as good. It's not. It was totally ineffective as a deodorant and it irritated my pits so I ended up with a rash.

Dove Energy Glow brightening moisturiser - This is my holy grail moisturiser. I've tried so many different ones but always come back to this.

Lush sugar scrub - This was horrible. It was way too harsh for my skin, a total waste of money. 

Nivea Invisible deodorant - This is a great deodorant. It doesn't leave white marks on my black clothes and doesn't leave yellow stains on my white coloured clothes. I'll be repurchasing this one for sure.

Le Tan SPF 30 classic lotion  - Nice but not amazing. I prefer my Neutrogena sunscreen.

WotNot naturally nurturing face wipes - my holy grail face wipes. You can read my review of them here.

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration shampoo and conditioner - I only got one use out of these but they seemed pretty good.

Garnier Body Intensive 7 days moisturiser x 3 - I liked this and would probably buy it.

I don't have a photo of all the products I got rid of, but this is a few of the old and expired products that I threw out. The Bepanthen expired in 2008!


  1. You always have so many empties, I'm jealous!! I relly want to try Haus of Gloi, think next payday will push me onto the site to make an order. I loved BadGal but didn't find it smudged on me, that is interesting. I bought one of the Foamburst shower gels in Coconut and Tiare and even though it smells nice, I'm not into it. Might try another scent next time. Great empties!

  2. Is that the old Jurlique packaging I see in the last pic? So old!

  3. Hahaha you are an empties machine! I bought the Foamburst for the gimmick too. I can't help myself.

  4. i love this idea for a post...i may do something similar in the future, i hope you don't mind :)

    just found your blog bloghopping and thought i would join via GFC.

    if you have a sec, i would love for you to stop by mine as well. xo

  5. OMG That is one massive load of empties. You go girl! I am lucky to get half a dozen a year. You are a MACHINE! Off to slather a whole tub of body butter on my feet just to say I've used it! Lol xxxx
