November Empties

I am so excited for it to finally be December - it's summertime and Christmas is on it's way!

Here are the products I finished up in November and boy was there a lot in my bin!

Dove Body Silk Body Moisturiser
Yet another pot of this beauty - my skin has just been soaking this in!

Bastiste Diva Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is my saviour during the warmer months. My hair is very dry due to bleaching but my scalp tends to get a bit oily and this helps me get an extra day out of my wash as well as being a great time-saver when I head to work straight from the gym!

Dove Nourishing Oil
I won this as part of my Glosscars pack and while it took me a while to get around to using it I love it - will definately be picking this up again!

Colgate Plax Mouthwash in Freshmint and Colgate Plax Mouthwash in Ice
Gotta love minty fresh breath!

Sportsgirl Butter Dream Body Butter in Honey
This is a great product when I want a thicker moisturiser to leave on the skin so it can soak in.The honey scent is discontinued I think, but they always have this in one scent or another so will get this again once I have used up all the other products I have on the go!

Givenchy Very Irrisistable Summer Sun EDT
I have had this in my collection for years and though I keep going back to it from time to time it's taken forever to use up. I love the lighter fragrance of this as opposed to the original and the bottle is adorable as well.

Freeman Replenishing Body Lotion Shea Butter and Lemon Grass
This was a very runny lotion that was OK but not amazing. I picked it up on a whim from the chemist and won't be getting this again.

Clinique Take The Day Off Eye Makeup Remover
My Holy Grail Eye Makeup remover. I do wish it was cheaper as I seem to go through it so quickly though!

Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash
This was given to us at the Beauty Heaven Open Day earlier this year and it smells devine! All the BH girls were obsessed with it and I must say I am a big fan as well. Definately a repurchase item for me!

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfection BB Cream in Medium
This tends to get very mixed reviews but for me it is a perfect daily tinted moisturiser with a bit more coverage than you would expect. I have taken to wearing this with some concealor and MSF Natural for a lighter finish and it stays in place all day.

Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Cream (old formulation and new formulation)
You may have already heard me talk about this but I was very sad when they changed the formulation of this product earlier in the year. The old one I had been using for quite a while and it was really helping to fade dark marks on my skin caused from acne and generally giving me a much more radiant skintone. The new formulation is now certified organic (as opposed to just having some of the ingredients being organic before) but it is now very sticky and stings my skin due to the concentration of citrus. I did manage to use up this tub of the new version as a body moisturiser but sadly I won't be buying this again unless I can track down some more of the old formulation. :-(

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Plus
Woohoo - one item closer to Back 2 MAC! Haha... Yep that's my first thought when I hit pan on another one of these. I think I have been going through this product a little more lately as I am not using a liquid foundation first but I still have quite a few backups in the collection.

MAC Eyeshadow in Jest
This is my all time favourite eyeshadow from MAC and it takes me over a year or almost daily use to use it up. Already replaced this one while I was away!

Coles Makeup Remover Pads 
I'm sure you're sick of seeing these by now... :-)

That's it for November, hope you are all as excited for Christmas as I am!

Hope you are having a beautiful day! 


  1. sportsgirl body butter is amazing,i have bought it a few times,and i love "jest" eyeshadow! i would not survive without that and shroom lol great post :)

    1. Shroom is one I've heard of but never tried - must keep an eye out for it next time I wander on down to MAC!

  2. I love the Garnier BB cream as well but the Dove oil is something I haven't tried yet. Looking forward to giving it a go :)

    1. It's AMAZING! I have chronically dry frizzy hair and this helps so much. It's funny cos I've tries all sorts of expensive products but this is so cheap and does a much better job...
