Because why not?

Empty! October 2015

9 November 2015
Goodbye October, not as bad as June, July, August and September but I'm not sad to see the arse end of you!

I'm also not sad to see the arse end of these empties, actually, some are deeply loved, but I already have backups of those so it's all smiles and rainbows and shit.

Swisspers Cosmetic Squares - HATE THESE. They fall apart, don't glide over the skin and are borderline useless, I have one more box to get through.
Repurchase? Hell-Fucking-No!

Colour Royal 9.1 Very Light Ash Blonde - Picked this up at either the end of last year or the beginning of this year, finally used it and quite like the results, gave me a nice grey tone which I'm in to at the moment.
Repurchase? I wouldn't rule it out but I'm more likely to just get my hairdresser to do it because I'm lazy.

Syn-Ake Sheet Mask - No visible results with this one, just a basic mask.
Repurchase? No.

Leaders Insolutions Aquaringer Sheet Mask - Hydrating but didn't wow me.
Repurchase? No.

Piksters SupaGrip Flossers - I like these, they do the job and aren't flimsy.
Repurchase? If I can find them in store, yes.

Garnier Gentle Makeup Remover Wipes - Soft but not effective at removing makeup so there is a lot of wiping and tugging and scrubbing which makes them shit for the skin.
Repurchase? No, I possibly have another pack but I'll just continue to use them for swatches.

Daiso Lashes - I adored these, I wish I had kept the backing card they came on, I check Daiso for them every time I go there but I suspect they sell out fast.
Repurchase? Next time I see them I'll be stocking up.

Wash Away Your Sins Wet Wipe - Cleaned my hands when they were dirty and I had no access to a basin to wash them. Got my tick of approval.
Repurchase? Yes.

Joico K-Pak - Found this under my sink in the bathroom and it had gone bad, I remember it being great though, I was quite pleased that there was less than one application in the bottle anyway.
Repurchase? Yes.

Beauty By Zazie Nail Polish Remover - Cheap and effective without being super drying.
Repurchase? Always, will grab a few more bottle on my next trip to Chemist Warehouse.

SSS Shampoo - Nothing special going on here, just shampoo.
Repurchase? No.

SSS Conditioner - This was actually a leave in product, you could apply a little after washing your hair or a lot when going to the beach or pool, it protects the hair from outside stress and leaves it feeling soft and silky.
Repurchase? I probably would.

Kerastase Nutritive Shampoo - Ok this is not smiles and rainbows and shit, have stopped shipping 99.9% of their Kerastase products to Australia and I don't like that. This is a gorgeous shampoo for unruly hair.
Repurchase? Not at Aussie prices!

Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream - A light but hydrating facial gel, I quite licked it but my skin got used to it so it didn't do a whole lot for me in the end.
Repurchase? No.

Daiso Puff & Sponge Cleanser - Holy Grail.
Repurchase? Yes.

Ariul Purefull Cleansing Foam - This had a gorgeous light citrusy scent but left my skin feeling too squeaky clean.
Repurchase? No.

Burt's Bees Richly Replenishing Body Lotion - Just body lotion, nothing special.
Repurchase? No.

Shower Mate Red Fantasy Body Wash - Smelled so good and had a beautiful rich lather, loved this.
Repurchase? I'm not likely to order body wash from Korea, it just seems kinda unnecessary. 

Jo Malone Pomegranate Mini Candle - Lovely scent but I'm not impressed with the scent throw.
Repurchase? No.

The Body Shop Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion - Didn't find it particularly cooling and it wasn't hydrating enough for me but would suit those without dry skin issues.
Repurchase? No.

Morningtree Pore Complete Solution Whitening Anti-Wrinkle Roll On - Used this around my eyes, wasn't really impressed.
Repurchase? No.

Skindinavia Makeup Setting Spray - Had high hopes for this one but other than refreshing an over powdered face it didn't do much for me.
Repurchase? No.

Simple Eye Makeup Corrector Pen - This is a nifty little product and I totally recommend it for anyone who likes to wear a wing but sometimes has a 'bad wing day', my only suggestion is to wipe the tip on a tissue after each use to remove excess product build up and keep the tip at least a little clean.
Repurchase? Yes!

Jo Malone Grapefruit Mini Candle - Again, nice scent but not impressed by the scent throw.
Repurchase? No.

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 03 Nude Shimmer - Holy Grail! Hydrating, wears really well considering it's basically a tinted lip balm, isn't sticky, gives a light nude sheen to the lips and is perfect for every day wear.
Repurchase? Absolutely, I have a few more minis to work on but I'll definitely buy another once they are all gone.

Daiso Baby Cotton Buds - Another Holy Grail, I will never be without these.
Repurchase? Yup.

And now on to the not so empties..

B & Soap Mamie Blue - This face mask has a 'cooling tingle' that feels like a full blown burn on my skin, the first time I used it I washed it off straight away because I was feeling such an intense burn that it was actually hurting and I thought it was likely burning my skin, thankfully it didn't ever do anything negative to my skin but after a few uses I also concluded that it was doing nothing beneficial so I'm not going to torture myself any longer.

Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Omega Repair Conditioner - I just fucking can not with this scent.

Savvy Clear Brow Gel - Why do you think people buy clear brow gel? The reason I buy it is because I want to set my brows so they don't try to party on my face while I'm not looking. Why do you think companies make clear brow gel that doesn't actually set the brows? I think it's because they are fucking idiots.

Right, so that's it for October empties, I'm already over a week in to November with only one new empty product so I'm not sure what the next empties post will offer!

Did you throw out anything you hated this month?

  1. Love the colour on your nails Hailey! (Even though it's Sally Hansen & we all know how much you hate that brand haha!)

    I wouldn't say I hated it, but the sample I got through of asap's CC cream wasn't something I'd jump for joy over...mostly because I didn't want it in the first place (ordered another asap sample, got told in my invoice that it'd sold out, so got the CC cream instead), it only comes in one shade & that shade is totally unsuitable for my pale self. It also kind of irritated me a bit when I applied it, but not so badly that I wanted to scratch my face off. Still wouldn't purchase it even if I had a tan, it looks a bit orange.

  2. So many empties! On sunday I went to daiso to buy that brush cleanser but they sold out :( They had a more watery version that I bought instead and it actually cleaned my brushes quite well! I'm still going to keep an eye out for the original though
