October 2015 Empties

October was a bit hard for me to finish a bunch of products since I was traveling a lot- I only spent 1 weekend at home! However, I still managed to get through some products just not as many as I would have liked. I am definitely making an effort this month, but will also be traveling with the holiday, so we’ll see how that goes.

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic. I bought this on a whim because I needed a toner and I really liked the other products from Liz Earle I’ve tried. It has a light floral scent which others may not care for, but I enjoyed. This toner left my skin feeling cleansed and refreshed. I will probably go back to this one after I finish the derma E one I’m currently using.

Lush Dream Cream. I am not good about using lotions on my body, and this tub is huge, so it took me a long time to get through. I liked it, but it was very thick and took quite a while to sink in (I am usually in a rush in the mornings after showering, so it took extra time that I didn’t have). However, it did an amazing job soothing and moisturizing!

derma E Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Glycolic Scrub. I love this! It’s exfoliating, yet gentle enough for every day use. It also has a pleasant scent that my scent-intolerant husband really enjoyed.

Honest Beauty Even Brighter Moisturizer. I didn’t care for the scent of this, so I stopped using it after a few uses. The sunscreen and face wash that came with the set have a less noticeable scent so I am still using those.

tarte Pure Maracula Oil. I use oils almost every night, but this is not my favorite. It feels a bit heavy and doesn’t seek into my skin immediately. However, its great for the extra moisture my hands need now that it’s colder!

Shiseido Express Smoothing Eye Mask. These were nice and soothing the one time I used them. Unfortunately, they were a bit old, so there was only enough product to use them once, which isn’t enough to really see if they work for wrinkles and fine lines.

BioRepublic Cucumber Sheet Mask. I loved this mask! I used it the day my Birchbox arrived and immediately saw my skin looked and felt  smoother. The mask had a lot of product, so it was a bit messy. After removing the mask, I patted the extra product onto my face and neck . Plus, the cucumber scent of this was so nice! I plan on buying more of these for myself and my sisters.

  • Do you mean November empties?!

    • Oops, no, these are October empties!

      • Haha ok just checking 😉

        • Didn’t even realize we’re so far into November.. I can never get the empties posts done in time!

  • I feel the same about the Tarte Oil. The reviews are SO great but I feel like it’s just too heavy for my skin.

    • Which oils do you like? Still on the hunt for the perfect one!

      • I’m still in he hunt too…I’ve been using the Josie Maran Light Argan oil and it’s alright. My skin is kind of oily to start with. I want to try something different when this bottle is empty.

        • Oh I haven’t tried the Light one, also found the original too heavy. Happy hunting!

    Thanks for sharing these empties, I have been wanting to try the Shiseido eye mask, maybe I’ll buy a different brand instead! Thanks!

    • I just got another pack of the eye masks, so I will test them out soon to see if my other pack was just too old. Stay posted!
