October Empties

It's empties time again! I used up mainly body/bath essentials this month, no makeup at all!

Soap and Glory Wash Your Hands Of It Hand Wash 250ml - £5.00
This pretty pink hand wash is from a set that also contains a 250ml Hand Food (that hasn't run out yet). I received the set for my birthday and thought it was nice to put in the kitchen to use. It's described as a "fruity fresh non-drying hand wash" and it definitely is that! It also has that lovely but not too overpowering standard Soap and Glory scent.
Purchase myself? No - only because I've bought a red coloured Bayliss and Harding hand wash to match the red theme of our kitchen!!

No7 Beautiful Skin Wipes (30 Wipes) - £7.00
I bought these with a £5.00 voucher and am gutted that they've run out while there's no voucher offer on. They're suitable for all skin types and are the best facial wipes I've ever used to remove makeup, especially to remove my Benefit They're Real mascara, which is normally so stubborn and a pain to remove! I just wish they weren't so expensive.
Re-purchase? Yes - when No7 do another voucher!

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel Sample - FREE
I love Lush for samples! I got two uses out of this pot. I mentioned Snow Fairy in my recent post I'm Lusting Over... Shower Gels because it smells absolutely gorgeous (though if you don't like sweet scents it won't be for you). It lathers really well and the scent lingers on your skin for ages afterwards.
Purchase full size? It's on my Christmas wishlist.

So...? Kiss Me Body Fragrance 75ml - £1.99
I flit between So...? and Impulse depending what's on offer as I hate spending lots on deodrant. This has a nice fruity scent, which I really like.
Re-purchase? Yes

Tesco Cotton Wool Round Pads x100 - £1.00
I think these are pretty good value for money and are easy to pick up when doing the food shop.
Re-purchase? Yes

Girlz Only Dawn til Dusk Dry Shampoo 150ml - £1.50
I think this dry shampoo is just as good as Batiste and I've been buying it for a few months now. This one has a refreshing citrus scent. You can read my full review of it here.
Re-purchase? Yes definitely.

Sure Women Crystal Clear Aqua 48h Active Anti-Perspirant 250ml - £3.00
I bought this from Tesco on a half price offer and although I prefer anti-perspirants with some kind of scent rather than that standard powdery smell, I really like this as it works so well. I think I may stock up while it's still half price!
Re-purchase? Yes.

So that's it for my empties, the products aren't that exciting this month but hope you enjoyed the post!

What have you used up this month? Do you use any of the above products?

  1. The pink version of the deo smells so lovely! x

  2. Is it just me, or does it seem like most bloggers get through about 20-30 products a month!? I posted my empties on Monday, which consisted of about six or seven, and every one I've seen since has got absolutely loads! I just don't know how they do it, there are only so many times you can wash your hair/do your makeup, etc. per month. Impressive, although I'm glad to see that some people use up more like the number that I do!
    The Lush shower gel sounds lovely, haven't bought anything from there in ages but am looking forward to popping in soon and checking out their Christmas goodies.

    1. No it definitely isn't you ;-) I wouldn't be able to get through that much per month!
      I really want to try some of their Christmas bath bombs after seeing quite a few posts about them!xx

  3. I love how generous LUSH are with samples - last time I went in I came out with 5 or 6 little black pots! :) x

    1. I'm always nervous about asking for samples but Lush are SO generous they don't seem to mind at all!xx
