October Empties - What I've been using in October



Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Body Milk

Thoughts
I didn't think this was going to be nourishing enough for my dry skin, but I was actually quite impressed. It wasn't as good as my Doublebase Gel from the Dr's, but did smell and feel lovely when putting in onto my skin.

Would I repurchase?
Maybe. If it was on offer or in a set then yes, but otherwise, I'm quite happy with my Doublebase Gel.





No 7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser

Thoughts
It did a good job at removing my makeup, especially with the muslin cloth, but it didn't feel luxurious enough. I felt like it would have been anything I was using, just a regular cheap cleanser. I liked the pump action though, although this did get a little bit messy. Didn't attempt to remove eye makeup with this as I much prefer a separate eye makeup remover.

Would I repurchase?
I brought it when I had some No 7 vouchers, so already have another one waiting to be used up!





Aveda Volumizing Tonic

Thoughts
This did give my fine thin hair a little boost, but not overly. It wasn't sticking and didn't leave any residue which I liked. Smelt lovely.

Would I repurchase?
Perhaps.





Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream SPF 15

Thoughts
Absolutely adore this face cream. It's probably the only face cream I seem to be able to apply that has a SPF in it that doesn't break me out in a rash. It soothes and nourishes my skin throughout the day, it doesn't break me out, it works great under makeup and it has an SPF. AMAZING!

Would I repurchase?
I already have another three of these sitting in my cupboard ready to be used up!





L'Oreal Mythic Oil

Thoughts
Certainly my favourite hair oil that I've used so far, although I think the packaging has changed now. I liked that it didn't weigh my fine hair down, or make it greasy. It added a little nourishment to the ends, without them looking like I'd had an oil bath.

Would I repurchase?
Yes.





Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Dry Shampoo

Thoughts
LOVE this product. It's amazing at refreshing my hair style. Smells great, doesn't leave that horrible, very powdery feel behind, brushes through easily and absorbs oil really well. Much better than Batiste which left my scalf itchy and powdery.

Would I repurchase?
Already have. Plus I have a few on backup in my cupboard.





Ojon Volume Advance Thickening Spray

Thoughts
Added a little bit of volume to my hair. Didn't make it sticky or oily. Makeup you don't apply too much though, otherwise it does leave a residue on your hair. Left my hair silky soft and bouncy.

Would I repurchase?
Already have as this was just a trial sized on that came in a set.





Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant

Thoughts
Another amazing, HG product. Can't get enough of this stuff. It's like a miracle liquid! Doesn't break me out, actually had the opposite effect and helped with my spots/acne. Didn't sting my skin or dry it out, despite it containing salicylic acid. I've been using this twice a day now for the last 4 - 6 weeks and love it.

Would I repurchase?
Already have.





Boots Clean Off Nail Polish Remover

Thoughts
Does the trick at removing nail polish, cheap and cheerful product. Does smell VERY strong, so I have to dispose of cotton wool in the bathroom bin otherwise my whole room smells of nail polish remover!

Would I repurchase?
Already have.
