Empties - November 2017

Another month has come and gone, and it's already the end of November. Or beginning of December when you read this! I can't believe we're getting so close to the end of 2017, this year feels like it went by so quickly. Pretty soon Christmas will be here, as will New Years Eve.. and then we will be in 2018!  Anyway, it's time to collect the beauty trash, and see what I've used up for the month of November.

I wish I could say I used up a lot of products this month, but I'm actually kind of disappointed in the low amount I used up!

Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer Water
I wasn't planning on repurchasing this primer water, because I wanted to try something else. But then this bottle fell and the spray part got all messed up. So I repurchased another just so I could empty this into the other without feeling like it was a waste. I like this primer water, but like I said, I wanted to try something else. I may repurchase in the future, I'm not sure yet!

Sunday Riley - Luna Sleeping Night Oil
This was hydrating on the skin, however I didn't notice any difference in my skin texture or the way it looked.  This was blue, and was strongly scented. I'd pass on it in the future. I did a full review on it here.

Too Faced - Hangover RX Primer
This is a nice hydrating primer, that isn't heavy feeling at all. However, this makes me break out. Pretty much every time I tried it, I would get a break out. Which is super disappointing because I liked the way it made my skin look, and feel. 

Stella McCartney - Pop (Perfume Sample)
This is a nice perfume, and I considered purchasing a full size. Possibly in the future because I really don't need more perfumes in my collection right now.

Sunday Riley - Good Genes
This is a lactic acid and in the beginning I really liked it. However over time, I noticed my skin became sensitive to it and it would burn when I used it. I scaled back from using it every day, to every other day, and then every 3 days. It had a very strong scent. I will not be repurchasing. I did a full review on it here.

Fresh - Soy Face Cleanser
I absolutely love this cleanser. It's a gel formula, and it's just so gentle on my skin. It doesn't feel like it dries me out, and it gets my makeup off if a balm doesn't get it all off beforehand. I recommend this to everyone, and I have already repurchased.

Equate - Quilted Pads
These are just cheap little cotton rounds. They're good for removing nail polish, taking off mascara, using micellar water. They're very handy to have. I've already repurchased. 

Shiseido - Facial Cotton
These facial cottons are so soft. I cut them in half so they last even longer. They're also good to remove makeup, apply a toner or micellar water. I've used them to remove nail polish too but I feel like they are too lux to use them for that. I've already repurchased because theyr'e just so soft. And they lasted me quite awhile.

Marc Anthony - Dream Waves Beach Spray
This stuff smells like a tropical vacation. Like coconut and pineapple. It works great at making my hair stay wavy, without weighting it down or making it look/feel super dried out. I haven't repurchased yet, but it's on my list for the future!

John Frieda - Frizz Ease - Miraculous Recovery Deep Conditioner
I didn't find this to be anything special. It made my hair feel a little softer but I didn't find it deep conditioning enough - if that makes sense. I really prefer the Amika hair mask, so I will not be repurchasing this deep conditioner in the future.

Healthy Sexy Hair - Soy Leave in Conditioner
This took me a while to finish off. It's okay, nothing really to remember. I won't be repurchasing.

Scentsy - Wax Bar in Pineapple Sorbet 
I enjoyed the pineapple scent of this wax bar, but I wish it was stronger. I'm undecided if I will repurchase this in the future.

Webber Naturals - Biotin (Vitamin)
I noticed my hair was falling out at a scary rate, so I decided to buy some biotin. While it did help grow some of my hair back (I see lots of  baby hairs) I needed to add some Iron to my daily vitamin intake. And that has really helped. I already repurchased another bottle of biotin and I'm seeing some results. I did notice my nails are growing a lot faster.

Secret - Invisible Gel Deodorant - Cocoa Butter
This has become one of my favourite deodorants. It does the job. I've already repurchased.

Equate - Multi Purpose Contact Lens Solution
This stuff is cheap. You get two in a pack, and new cases. It's not my most favourite (I really like Aqua Solo) but this is cheaper and my boyfriend likes it. So I use it. We've already repurchased.

Bath and Body Works - Foaming Hand Soap in Caribbean Escape
This is my most favourite bath and body works scent. It's tropical, fruity, and pink! I wish I could bathe in this scent haha. Anyway, I love this hand soap. I have a ton stocked up, so you'll be seeing more in the future. I'll need more of everything in this scent though!

So for November I only used up 16 products  - which really isn't much at all when I look at how much stuff I have. I'm going to try and aim for 31 products for December. Fingers crossed I can do it!
