November Empties - What I've been using in November


Lacura Aqua Complete Serum from Aldi £3.95

Thoughts
I absolutely love this product. It's a real pleasure to use and helps my dehydrated skin to feel more hydrated and smoother. I can't say I've noticed any improvements to fine lines, but for under £4, it makes my skin look and feel lovely. It also works really well under makeup as a base too.

Would I repurchase?
Yes, I already have

Pharmagel Botanical Tonique £24

Thoughts
I like that this product is alcohol free, although I can't really say I noticed a huge difference when using this toner to using a cheaper option from Boots. 

Would I repurchase?
For the price, no as I didn't see any real difference.

Clinique Take the Day off Eye Makeup Remover - £17

Thoughts
I have never found a better eye makeup remover than this one. It's fantastic at removing all waterproof eye and lip products and doesn't require you to scrub at your eyes. It's simple, easy to use and doesn't leave your skin feeling too greasy.

Would I repurchase?
Yes, I already have a few bottles stashed away.

Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Night Cream - On offer for £3.89

Thoughts
I go on and on about the Botanics All Bright range to everyone! I love the day cream, night cream and toner, all of which I repurchase and stock up on on a regular basis when they're on offer. I've tried and used creams from Estee Lauder, Clinique and Biotherm, all over the £30 mark, but always return to this. It doesn't break me out which a lot of the more expensive creams do, it moisturises and hydrates my dehydrated skin and leaves my face looking refreshed in the morning.

Would I repurchase?
Yes, I already have around three more jars of this.

Estee Lauder Double Wear in Ecru - £27.50

Thoughts
I love that this stays on all day, I've even slept in it before (I know, naughty naughty!) and it's intact in the morning! It literally doesn't budge. It also covers ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's very drying, feels tight on my skin and can look too heavy for everyday wear. I get around this by mixing MAC Strobe Cream into it.

Would I repurchase?
Yes, I already have and I'm using my second bottle now.

  1. I find the same thing with double wear - I love the coverage but it leaves my skin feeling too tight! I will have to try your trick with the strobe cream x
