November Beauty Empties 2014 - 1

It’s time again for me to go through my all my empty products. I didn’t do one October which is why I seem to have so many of them. I’ve included my fellas bits as well at the bottom, it’s not just us girls that get through stuff.

November Empties

This first one lasted me about a month,  the Urban Decay Crisp Pear & Sweet Vanilla Dry Shampoo. This up to now out of all dry shampoos has been my most loved one. It has a nice scent, hides the grease without looking white on my brunette hair. It’s not completely invisible you still have to work it in but it’s a lot easier than others. Can I justify the £4.99? I think so but I’d still say Batiste is almost as good. See Dry Shampoos Review. Next up is a T.K.Maxx purchase I found in their clearance department at £5 instead of £32. It’s the Christian Breton Aha Exfoliating Lotion. This is basically a chemical exfoliant liquid I used this non stop for three weeks day & night but I just wasn’t wowed by it. I couldn’t see much difference other than my skin going a little red after using it. I still want to try more exfoliating toners just not this one! Philosophy 3 in 1 Bath Foams are bubble bath for adults, there not cheap at £14 a bottle but they are a little luxury when you need some me time. This one was the coconut version, I liked this but didn’t love it. I prefer the Cinnamon Buns scent which fills my bathroom. The coconut seems to smell great in the bottle but disappeared too fast in the bath. A product that surprised me was the Perricone Md Gentle Cleanser. I wrote a review on this here and I stand by that review. I didn’t like this but because it was a gentle cleanser it didn’t feel anything more or less than any others I’ve used. I’m guessing someone with sensitive skin may get more out of it. What I did want to point out is I wrote that review thinking it was going to run out soon. That was back at the end of August, so its taken another 3 months to use up. For how long I’ve been using it almost every day and night it almost justifies the £35 price tag. I didn’t pay that much for it but even with it lasting so long I still couldn’t spend that much on a cleanser.

I seem to have gotten through a lot of face masks this month r rather just finished them up.The Good Things Manuka Honey mask I wrote about here so I won’t say much other than I’d buy it again, nice scent & felt like it was helping. The next one is The Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask, it does what it says & you do feel the warming effect. What I found with this is it’s very sticky, doesn’t dry down & when it slowly moves down your face it tastes awful if you get it on your lips. My face did feel soft after this one but it’s all too messy. I left the Origins Clear Improvements mask for last as I really did love this one the most. I only got a travel size as it’s expensive at £10 for 50 ml but I’m tempted to get another for Christmas. This felt like it was doing good every time I used it. This one dries down, you do have to use a flannel to get it off otherwise you’d be there all night. This helped to dry spots out & calmed them down without drying the rest of your skin out.

I couldn’t leave out the fellas empties as I think it’s useful knowing what they like too. I’m writing this & he’s telling me what he thought about them. Let’s get The Body Shop Kistna out-of-the-way because he goes through these often. He uses this for everything, beard, body & hair it’s a good all-rounder. It smells masculine without being like Old Spice. The Scaramouche & Fandango Condition (best blokes brand name ever) was from T.K.Maxx otherwise he would have never tried it. He liked the body wash but the conditioner just wasn’t all that nice. It made his hair feel like after it had dried it got dirty faster than regular conditioner.Last but not least another from The Body Shop, Maca Root Face Scrub. It cleans really well, he used this through his beard and it didn’t feel itchy afterwards which has happened with others. He really likes the smell which is the same as the Mac Root stick & spray deodorant that he likes. However he is warning me to tell you the face wash doesn’t smell as nice, enough that he won’t use it.
