October Empties!

I've been trying extra hard to use up product recently and it is definitely working. I've been really trying to finish skincare products which i've had for a while because I was quickly running out of space to store everything! I can now see space in my storage for the first time in a while.
Starting with skincare I finished one of my all time favourite face masks, the REN Glycolactic Radiance Reveal Mask (review), this mask makes a huge difference in adding a glow into my dull Winter skin. I've already repurchased this as this first bottle lasted me really well. I used up two cleanser, the first being the Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel (review), I loved this product, it is a gel that turns into an oil when applied to the face. It left my skin feeling clean and not dry plus it is easier to travel with than a balm cleanser. I would repurchase this. The other cleanser is the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm (review), I adore this cleansing balm but the packaging drives me mad! The lid is so hard to close and mine broke when I was half way through this tub. I've heard they've changed the packaging now so I might repurchase in the future because the product itself is great.
I finished a sample of the Origins Make A Difference Serum, this serum was very running but was great at adding some moisture into my dehydrated skin. I did enjoy this product but I don't think I will be buying the full size since it wasn't another special. I also finished a sample of the Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream, again this product was okay but for the price tag of the full size I personally don't think it is worth it. A product I did love is the Triology Rosehip Oil (review), this was a great oil which has helped to even out my skintone and improve the appearance of blemish scars. I would purchase this again. The last skincare product is the REN ClearCalm3 Replenishing Night Serum, I love this serum, it is perfect for blemish prone skin as it is light and help to get rid of blemishes gently. I will be repurchasing this again in the future.
Onto some shower products, the first being The Body Shop Earth Lovers Cucumber and Mint Shower Gel, this had a lovely fresh scent to it and seemed to last ages. It was gentle on the skin too, I like to change up my shower gels a lot but I would purchase this again. The next is the Sainsbury's Sensitive Shave Gel, a bit boring but this is my favourite shave gel as it doesn't irritate my skin, it is also cheap. I've already repurchased this. 
Onto body products, i've finished two Soap & Glory body butters. The first being the Daily Smooth Body Butter, this one smelt lovely and was moisturising without being greasy. The other the Butter Up Body Smoothing Butter, this one had an almost whipped texture to it which meant it felt so nice on the skin whilst having a lovely fresh scent to it. I got this in a set of three and I don't think you can purchase them individually which is a shame because I would purchase them again. I've also finished the Palmers Cocoa Body Butter, this was very hydrated to the skin but the scent did get a bit sickly after a while so I don't think I will be repurchasing this. Finally I finished The Body Shop Peppermint Foot Cream, this had a lovely minty scent and really helped make my feet feel soft. I would consider purchasing this again.
Something that I finish all the time is the Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo, I am never without a can of this stuff as it is my all time favourite dry shampoo. I always repurchase this. The only makeup product i've finished is the Seventeen Doll'd Up Mascara, I really liked this mascara, it was great for adding lots of length and a little volume whilst be very black. I would purchase this again once i've used up a few more mascaras.

So that's this months empties, i've been really enjoying finish up products recently especially as i'm starting to see some space for maybe some new products! Have you finished any of your favourite products this month?
