October Empties!

Today I have this months empties post, i'm always trying to use up products that I don't use that much because they just end up taking up too much space. 
 I haven't used that many products up this month but I do have a good mix of body, make-up and skincare products. 
The first thing is the Imperial Leather Citrus Burst Foamburst, I love these foambursts and this is my favourite scent. It smells of limes and is really refreshing, I have and will repurchase this. Next I have a few products from The Body Shop Strawberry range, first the body polish which is a very gentle scrub and great for everyday use. This seemed to last for ages and I would repurchase it. Next is the shower gel which smells lovely and again last ages and isn't trying on the skin, I would definitely repurchase (I already have a back up!).
I took the Strawberry Body Butter on holiday, this is a light body butter that smells just as nice as the shower gel. It's one of my favourite Body Shop Body Butters and would definitely repurchase. Next is my favourite deodorant, the Dove Invisible Dry I always buy this one and have already repurchased.
Some more products I took on holiday; the John Frieda Frizz Ease Emergency Treatment leave In Conditioner. This was ok but it didn't really do much, it made my hair easy to brush after washing but didn't help with dryness for that reason I wouldn't repurchase. Next is the VO5 Ultimate Hold Hairspray, I really like this hairspray, it did what it is meant too and I would repurchase. 
Onto some skincare bits; the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, I do like this product as a refreshing toner but in the colder months it has been a little trying (it contains alcohol) and I didn't find it did a lot. I don't think I would repurchase but maybe in the Summer, i'm a bit undecided on it still! Next is a sample of the Origins Mega Mushroom Serum, I really like using this and I didn't need a lot to cover my face. The only thing that puts me off is that the full size is £44.00! So I don't know if I would repurchase it. A great find this month was the Garnier Pure Self Heating Sauna Mask, this was really cheap in Body Care and I really enjoyed using it as a quick treat to my skin. I would repurchase it because it's so affordable (less than £1) and did seem to help with blackheads and oil control.
Finally I have two mascaras; first is a sample of the Clinique High Impact Mascara which I really did enjoy. It made my lashes look full and defined and I think I might have to buy the full size when i've used up some more mascaras. The other one is the Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Mascara, this is a great natural looking mascara which defines each and every lash. It is a bit of a wet formula and for that reason I don't think I would repurchase but it is a decent mascara.

So that's my empties for this month, I hope you liked it and if you've done an empties post this month leave a link in the comments below because I love reading them. 


  1. That's a lot of empties! Really like the satsuma version of the body polish - it's lush x

    1. I've tried the Satsuma body butter but not the polish, think I will have to give that a go! :)

  2. I'm not sure if its a grammar mistake but you mentioned the garnier mask didn't seem to help with blackheads and oil control. Was that a mistake or written intentionally.

    1. Well spotted! It did help with oil control and blackheads, i've changed it now :)

  3. I got a sample of the Clinque mascara and I really love it, great post I really want to try the strawberry body butter as I've heard so much about it x
