Another month, another monthly post and this is for my empties throughout November. I used LOADS during November which really surprised me! Sadly there were some things I was sad to see, whilst on the other hand there were some things I was glad to see the back of! I actually forgot to take a picture of one of my empties products so I’ll be talking about it first and just inserting a picture from the World Wide Web!
So I hope you enjoy this post, I’m actually rather poorly and tired as I write this, so I’m literally forcing myself to write this out whilst I listen/partially watch some TheRPGMinx videos over on YouTube (check out her channel if you like gaming videos). So here goes!
- Heiress EDP by Paris Hilton.
I bought this perfume back in 2009/2010 after hearing off of a beauty guru on YouTube that it was amazing. A few days later I popped into Superdrug and a brand new 100ml bottle was being sold for £10! At the time I wished I’d bought the three bottles that were left but of course I only bought the one and it did the job just fine. I’ve said over the years that I would re purchase this perfume but the more I’ve got to the end of the bottle, the more that idea has just gone out of the window. This perfume is very sweet and something you would wear as a teenager or possibly a student but when you’re 23 going on 24, it’s something you shouldn’t really wear anymore. This ended up being my work perfume and I did get some compliments on it, but quite frankly I’m glad to see the back of it and if I re purchase it it’ll only be a small 30ml size. I know my cousin loves this perfume and I can understand why, it’s a cute scent but it just makes me feel and smell as if I’m trying to be younger than I actually am and right now I love my sexy mature scents. 😛
- Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash.
I LOVE this body wash and I bought it back a year ago and quite frankly I can’t believe how long it’s lasted me! This stuff smells amazing, just like key lime pie and as limes are one of my favourite fruits this has been a favourite of mine to use in the mornings, as well as during the summertime when the weather was really warm. The wash had a pump on the top which made it easy to pump into my sponge, as well as my hands if I wished to use it that way. When my boyfriend first staying over at mine he would use this every time and up until its last pump of body was he used nothing but this! Possible Christmas present? 😉 I’m definitely going to re purchase this! I know Boots have a set of this for Christmas and I’m hoping to pick it up half price in the Christmas sales, if not it’d be great to receive as a present. I really want to try the body butter and the body scrub of this too, it all just smells amazing!
- Radox Muscle Therapy Bath Soak.
I actually bought this for my Dad to use in the bath as he complains with muscle pain a lot of the time but in the end I just used it myself and I already know I’ll be buying this again in the future! It smells just like the blue muscle soak bath soak by Radox but this smells a bit more fresh, if that makes sense. It contains black pepper and ginseng so it awakens you a little bit more I find. It’s also an amazing red colour and whilst I like a blue bath, red is equally as awesome! After a long day at work or after making my way home from my boyfriends I would run a hot bath and have some of this in there. It would make my muscles feel less achy and did the trick. I need this again as I can see December being a very busy, tiring and thus achy month for myself!
- Natural Collection Wild Strawberry Shower Creme.
This was a free product on a 3 for 2 offer from Boots and it was definitely an amazing freebie to pick up! My friend Poppy suggested I try this out as it’s really nice and even compared it to The Body Shop’s Strawberry Shower Gel, which I LOVE. This is a lovely shower creme and is something I will pick up again as it lasted a month and was nice to use before going to work. It foamed up lovely on my sponge and left my skin feeling really soft and smelling of strawberries. This isn’t as good as The Body Shop’s shower gel, but I just love that stuff so much! This costs £2 (I think!) to buy and it’s definitely worth the money! I really want to try more of their products with the Wild Strawberry scent.
- Gillette Satin Care Sensitive Shave Gel with Olay.
I picked this up in October from Boots for half of the price it was supposed to be and oh my do I love it! Sadly though I haven’t re purchased this yet, only when it’s as cheap as it was the first time I bought it, will it venture my shopping basket again. This is a lovely shave gel that will leave you feeling soft and smooth after use as well as leaving your skin moisturised! My legs tend to get very scaled looking after shaving but whilst I was using this, my legs looked and felt beautiful and quite frankly I miss using this stuff. I can’t wait to buy it again soon, I hope.
- Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree Shower Gel.
Okay this is actually a travel size version and although this was meant to be used for whenever I went to my boyfriends I soon just left it at home on my bath to use in the mornings before work. This stuff is amazing and I’m going to be picking up the full size version in the New Year! This stuff reminds me of the yellow Penicillin you got as a child, it smells JUST LIKE IT and that just reminds me of times when I was younger and whilst I hated being ill, I loved the medicine. My Mom called it “the banana medicine”. 😛 The full size only costs a £1 and I regret not picking any up a couple of days ago, so I think I will be during the week.
- Pears Hand Wash.
When I was younger my Mom bought the bar of soap version of this for me to use on my hands and body and I don’t remember if it was any good or not, but as the bottle of this said it was mild and good for the skin, I thought it would help my eczema… It did the complete opposite and made it worse!!! I actually couldn’t wait to use this up and I’m NEVER buying it again! I’m sure this will be great for most people but for myself its rubbish and no. Just no.
- Montagne Jeunesse Tea Tree Face Spa Face Mask.
There are two of these that were used up during November, not both of them used by me by the way. One by myself and one by my boyfriend. I persuaded him to do one of these masks with me so I didn’t feel so ugly and alone whilst I sat there with the sheet mask on my face. I’ve mentioned these before in empties and favourite posts and they’re amazing! You simply take the mask out of the packet, place it on your face and relax with it on for 15 or so minutes. Then after you’ve left it on for the correct amount of time you take it off, rub the excess bits of the sheet mask onto you face and then rinse off. It leaves your skin feeling clean and tingly and after a couple of days I notice that any sign of spots or blemishes vanish. I don’t know what my boyfriend thought of this mask, but he didn’t complain about having spots or anything. This mask is great for men as it doesn’t involve all the clay or peeled off of a gel mask.
- Montagne Jeunesse Blemish Mud Face Mask.
This was the first Montagne Jeunesse I ever tried out and since then it’s been one of my favourites to use, especially when I’m suffering with a bad case of spots or blemishes! This is a dull green/grey clay mask that feels amazing when put onto the skin and leaves your skin feeling soft, fresh and clean! Like the tea tree sheet mask it takes a couple of days for any current spots or blemishes to go away but after that this mask leaves your skin looking clear and beautiful for a couple of days. I used this in the bath just so it was easier to wash off of my face after use, but I think due to this it did break me out a little. But I’m not 100% sure, my spots have been weird this month!
- Montagne Jeunesse Hot Chocolate Self Heating Face Mask.
This mask smells just like Terry’s Chocolate Orange or an orange hot chocolate from Costa and thus smells amazing and delicious and all I want to do when this is on is eat it… However this being said I am glad to see this gone from my mask collection. This mask is great for leaving my skin lovely and soft, as well as smelling of something delicious but due to the warmth of this mask it does melt and half the time it drips off of my face, into my eyes, nose and even my mouth… Mmm delicious… Not. Either way whilst this mask does do an amazing job, it’s an awkward mask to use and one I think I’ll stay away from this in future. Montagne Jeunesse do have a chocolate mask, which I am yet to try. As well as this dripping off of my face and making me crave chocolate, it also stained one of my face cloths, which I was rather annoyed at but I replaced it for a couple of quid. If you don’t mind self heated masks the definitely try this one! But personally I didn’t notice that this did anything for my skin, other than soften it.
So those were my empties for November! There would have been more but there’s a little left so those products will be coming up in my December empties instead.
I can’t believe we have less than a month now until 2014. Are you excited? I bloody well am!
