November Empties

I used up quite a mixture of products this month! So here's what I ran out of...

Superdrug Nourishing Nail Polish Remover 200ml - £1.39
I've had this for ages - I'm guilty of picking my nail varnish off half the time instead of removing it properly! :s It's an okay product and it does the job, though with a bit of effort sometimes!
Re-purchase? No - I've bought a Cutex one to try instead.

Lush Cinders Bath Bomb - £2.25
I blogged about this recently here and it was my first ever Lush bath bomb! I'd recommend giving it a go because it's quite Christmassy; it contains cinamon leaf oil, sweet orange oil and popping candy! The smell is gorgeous.
Re-purchase? I would - but not right now as there's lots of other Lush bath bombs I want to try!

Cover FX Natural FX Water Based Liquid Foundation SPF15 - £37.00
I've been using this for about 6 months and have loved using it because it's a foundation and concealer in one, providing moderate coverage for acne, dark circles etc. It's also non-comedogenic, so doesn't aggravate spot prone skin. There's a great range of shades to choose from, but it is very expensive! Full review here.
Re-purchase? No - I've discovered Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation, which is a similar product but at over half the price.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer - £4.19
This a fab bargain buy and provides great coverage of dark circles and blemishes without going cakey. If you haven't tried it yet then I recommend that you do! Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes I already have.

Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Powder Refill - from £25.50
Thankfully with this you only have to buy the compact once and then can just re-purchase the refill, as this is an expensive product just for the refill! I love it though because it's pressed minerals and so doesn't clog pores, finishing off my foundation and concealer nicely. If you can recommend a cheaper pressed mineral powder please let me know!
Re-purchase? Yes I already have.

Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask (Sample) - FREE
I got about two uses out of this sachet, but from that I didn't really notice any difference to my skin. It felt nice and didn't dry out my skin, but that's all I can say really! I think you need to try the full size to make a proper judgement.
Purchase full size? No - I just didn't fall in love with this! I want to try Origins Out of Trouble mask next.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair for Eyes - £36.00
I've tried a lot of eye creams over the years and this is the only one that's really made a noticeable improvement to me in terms of texture, hydration and intensity of my dark circles. It's not a miracle worker but it does help! This pot lasted about six months. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes, once I've done all my Christmas shopping! I'm using a REN eye gel sample for now.

Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets - £2.99
This pack contains 50 sheets and it has been a lifesaver for absorbing oil through the day, without removing makeup. It's now a staple in my handbag! Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes I already have - I found them in Asda for £1.50!

What empties did you have this month? Do you use any of the above products?
