October & November Empties ♥

Well hello there my dearies, how is everyone doing? All good I hope! (^__^) I have a combined empties post for you today - including some of the usual suspects and a few which I'm sad to see go! 

October November Empties

[anticlockwise from bottom left]

The Body Shop Chamomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover - the first of my favourite eye makeup removers, this is particularly good for correcting eyeliner mistakes or when you've got mascara dotted all over your eyelid!

Garnier Skin Naturals Simply Essentials Soothing 2 in 1 Make-up Remover - You all should know by now that I love this stuff! It's been in all my empties so far xD It is definitely, hands down, the best one I've ever tried!

Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser - I really like this moisturiser. It's light enough for my oily T-zone but hydrating enough for my dry cheeks. There are times when I get patches that are drier than usual, so I just have to let my first application sink in and apply another layer on only the dry patches. Works a treat, and never makes my skin feel greasy in the slightest.

Olay Beauty Fluid - Yeah I know, it looks like it hasn't finished, but that's because I took this picture before I cut up the bottle and took the rest out! It's a pretty good moisturiser, doesn't make my skin feel greasy, but does take a tad longer to sink in compared to the Simple one (especially when I haven't exfoliated in a couple of days), but I don't mind. I like how this smells too :o)

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash - I don't think I even need to talk about this one, I'm sure everyone knows how crazy I am about this facial wash haha. I have now started using a different one though, just to switch it up. Would anyone like an updated skincare routine? Let me know in the comments below if you do! >.<

The Body Shop Ice Blue Shampoo - I am so sad that this has finished, I can't find it in stores anymore (;_____;) Why do all the best things get discontinued?! I tried to not use it as much, only on days I felt like I needed a pick me up, otherwise it would never have lasted this long haha! (For the full review, clickety clack over here~)

Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Scrub - Another thing that I'm sure y'all are sick of me banging on about. :P It's amazing! But I have decided to try and find something else, as I don't want to get bored of the scent (^__^)

Benefit BadGAL Lash Mascara - This was a pretty good mascara! Although I did keep making a mess because the brush handle was kind of small.. heh. The formula was good and didn't flake and make me end up with panda eyes, which is always a bonus! xD (full review here~ ^.^)

Avon Super Extend Extreme Mascara - I got this in Marie Claire as a freebie waaaay back in July, and I finally got around to opening it and using it mid-September. I think I prefer this plastic bristled wand compared to the natural bristled wand of the BadGAL mascara. It separated my eyelashes better and added a lot of length - I'm more into defined lashes now than voluminous. The formula was pretty awesome too - not too wet, nor too dry. It's up there with my L'oreal Telescopic & False Lash Telescopic Mascara! I was actually quite sad to see it dry up and end up in my empties bag. *sniff.*

Nivea Hydrocare Lip Balm - My ALL TIME FAVOURITE LIP BALM ♥ I was SO SAD when I finished this, I adore it, it's perfect for my lips. It has just enough.. tug (?) but also just enough slip (?!) too - not sure what the actual terms are haha but I hope you know what I mean! currently trying some foreign ones now so watch this space.. ;D

Soft Lips Lip Balm in French Vanilla - This was a bit of a meh product. I mean it did the job, but I didn't like the fact that it made my lips tingle and feel cold, nor the fact that it was so small - I mean my lips are big, but this made me feel like I was drawing my lips in with a short stubby lip liner or something! Not something I wanted to do first thing in the morning, honestly, ain't nobody got time fo dat! *finger snap in Z formation* LOL

Yeah so, not too interesting a post, but a post it is all the same! I'm trying to post whenever I can, but ultimately uni will be my first priority so don't be surprised if I disappear again for another week (>.<) but let me tell you, I will ALWAYS come back - I love the blogging community too much hehe ♥

Have a good weekend my lovelies! :o)
