November 2013 Empties

Happy December everyone! Today I have all of my empties to share with you from the month of November, and I have a lot! So, without further delay, let's get started...

Lush Midnight Massage* (reviewed here) - This was a part of last years Christmas collection, and I recently rediscovered it, and fell back in love! This massage bar had a really nice jasmine scent, and it did wonders to hydrate my skin.

Lush Pumkin Bubble Bar* (reviewed here) - This little guy was so cute! I loved the scent of this, and I actually used it as a body scrub.

Lush Noriko Soap* (reviewed here) - This soap smelt great, lathered really well, and hydrated my skin! Definitely recommend.

Lush Let the Good Times Roll* (reviewed here) - This cleanser is amazing, and it doubles as an exfoliant. Definitely stop by a store and give this a sniff, because it smells incredible!

Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly (reviewed here) - This one had a great uplifting scent, and the shower jelly formula is so fun!

Lush Into Thin Air Massage Bar (reviewed here) - The bumpy beads in this formula made for such a great massage! This is a retro product, so it can only be bought online, but I definitely recommend it!

Lush Bombardino Bath Bomb* (reviewed here) - This smelt amazing, like lemon cheesecake! If you like bakery scents, give this guy a try!

Bath & Body Works Mint Chocolate Candle- This smells incredible! I would definitely repurchase if I found it on sale. 

Crabtree & Evelyn Small Fragranced Candle - Gilded Chestnut* (reviewed here) - I really liked this scent, and I think it would make a great stocking stuffer!

 Maybelline Instant Age Rewind The Perfector Powder* (reviewed here) - This was a really nice setting powder, and it kept me matte all day long. Right now I'm using Rimmel's Stay Matte, but I would go back to this one in the future.

Yankee Candle Apple Pumpkin Tart - This smelt incredible! I would definitely repurchase. 

The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Cream - I really, really liked this formula! I love The Body Shop's hand creams, and will continue to repurchase. 

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream* (reviewed here) - I liked to use this BB Cream as a starting point, and I would layer it under other foundations. This was also perfect on days when I just wanted to even out my skin tone. 

Korres Mattifying Primer sample - This was nice, but I'm not sure that I would spend the money on the full size. 

Pantene Silky Moisture Whip - This made my hair feel really soft, but it also left my hair looking oily, so I wouldn't purchase the full size.
The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Hand Cream* (reviewed here) - This scent is incredible, I highly recommend it! I will definitely purchase another tube!

Cake It's A Slice Velveteen Hand Cream (reviewed here) - I love Cake's Hand Creams, they're really hydrating and this one smelt amazing!

OPI Manicure/Pedicure Papaya Pineapple Massage (reviewed here) - I've been using this as a foot cream, and the formula is quite light. I liked this in the Summer months, but now in the colder months I like something a bit thicker.

Montagne Jeuenesse Glacial Clay Spa Face Masque*, White Chocolate Face Masque*, and PawPaw Peel Off Mask* - I really enjoyed all three masks! They smell really yummy and would be great for travel :)

Bumble and bumble Surf Foam Wash & Creme Rinse samples - I really liked the formula of these! I might purchase the full size in the future. 

Korres Antiageing Primer sample - This primer felt really nice, but I don't think I would purchase the full size. I have other primers that I like more. 

Banana Boat Sport Performance SPF 30 - I used this a lot in the Summer, and it's finally all used up! I really liked the easy spray bottle. 

Fresh Brown Sugar Body Cream* (reviewed here) - I really loved the formula of this cream, but I hated the fake lemon scent! This does not smell like brown sugar at all. 

Innisfree It's Real Green Tea Mask* (reviewed here) - These sheet masks are incredible! If you have dry skin, you need to try these out!

Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Gina* - This shimmery magenta shade is beautiful, and I love Buxom's formula. 

Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me (reviewed here) - I really loved the sheer wash of red that this gave to my lips! If you want to wear a red, but you aren't ready for a bold lip, definitely check this out.

The Body Shop Honeymania Lip Balm* (reviewed here) - I really loved this lip balm! The Honeymania scent is really nice too :)

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment - Rose, full size & mini (reviewed here) - I really love this formula, and I want to try out more shades from the line!

MAC Lacquer in Mellowing and Chromeglass in Technobeet - I've had both of these for wayyyy too long, it's time to toss! Well, I'll actually be saving them to Back to Mac!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Shine City - This was a nice shimmery gloss to layer over other colours. I'm not sure if this is still available!

bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipgloss in Birthday Cake (reviewed here) - I really loved this gloss, it felt really nice on the lips and wasn't sticky. 

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer sample - I loved this, I definitely want to buy the full size!

Purminerals Correcting Primer - This felt really nice on my skin, I would consider purchasing the full size bottle. 

OPI Lincoln Park After Dark (reviewed here) - I've had this bottle for years, and I've finally used it all up! I really love this deep purple shade, it's such a classic!

Bath & Body Works Fresh Fallen Snow Pocket Bac - I also have one of these in my purse! This scent was quite nice. 

Yankee Candle Red Velvet Tart - I didn't really like this scent, it was just a bit too sickly sweet!

Bath & Body Works Home Fragrance Oil in Leaves - This scent is amazing, and the oil was really potent!

Benefit See & Been Seen Sasha EDP sample - There was only enough for one spritz of this scent, so I can't really say how much I liked it!

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bold Gold - Unfortunately this has dried up! This is the only Color Tattoo that I own that has dried up, and I don't think that I'll repurchase this shade. I didn't really use it that often. 

Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner samples - These smelt incredible! I would repurchase these in the future. 

Benefit Bad Gal Lash Brown - This was a horrible mascara, and wasn't similar to the original Bad Gal at all! I ended up just using this on my bottom lashes, which it did work well for. 

Julep Glycolic Hand Scrub & SPF 30 Hand Cream samples - I really like both of these!

So there you have it! Another month, another huge bin of empties! I would love to know what products you've finished off recently, and if we have any products in common! :)


  1. That is a HUGE batch of empties, wow! Sorta jealous but still impressed. Amazing job! There are quite things on this that I either want to try or currently have. I love empties posts though. You definitely got through cream a lot faster than me... I should work on that especially with my hands and winter!

    1. Aha thanks! I have eczema on one of my hands, so I really need to constantly apply hand cream, especially in the colder months!

  2. wow, you did an awesome job finishing up so many products this month :)

    I love Lush products and I "hoarded" too much products last Christmas that I found the odd ones popping up from nowhere in my stash.

    1. I'm the same way with Lush products! I need to start making my way through some Lush goodies so they don't expire!

  3. Wow, great job with the empties! I also love that mint chocolate candle :)

  4. WOW that's some empties stash. Mine is going up tomorrow and I've really not used much this month. I love the sound of the mint chocolate candle - oh to have BBW in the UK.


    1. Thanks! Can't wait to read your post :)
      The mint chocolate candle smelt delicious! I still can't believe that BBW doesn't have stores in the UK, or at least offer shipping there!

  5. Thanks for the sweet comment, you made my day!
    Great blog!

  6. I am always impressed with your empties posts! Lip products always take me forever to go through. And, I need to focus more on my Lush stash, too. I'm on a Lush no buy until I whittle down my stash and there are so many christmas things I want to try! The Bombardino is on the top of that list :)

    1. Aw thanks! Lip products are one of the things that I seem to go through quickest, I'm constantly reapplying! I have a lot of Lush products to go through, slowly but surely! :)

  7. This is amazing! I definitely need to empty some more stuff by the end of this year to make more room! :)

    1. Thank you! I'm really trying to get through a few makeup products in my stash! :)

  8. Holy that's one huge empties!! Great job! I need to really try to use up things instead of using them a couple times then move on! I love masks by Innisfree, it's my favourite Korean skin care brand hands down!

    1. Aha I know right!? thanks! With skincare and haircare I tend to just stick to one product at a time, but i'm wanting to also start using up some makeup products!
      I really love these Innisfree masks, they're incredible :)

  9. Wow, you've powered through your products this month, well done on getting so many empties! I'm terrible, I can't help just starting new things before the old is finished. x

    1. Thank you! I hate having a ton of half used products, it drives me crazy! So I tend to just stick to one product at a time (except when it comes to makeup!) :)

  10. Awesome empties!! I'm going to NYC next week so I hope to pick up some holiday LUSH goodies!

    1. Thanks! Oh I'm so jealous! Have a great trip :)

  11. Every month it always amazes me how many things you go through. Maybe you could use up some of my lipglosses for me? I love those face masks by mj too. They are so cheap and smell nice, even if they don't actually do much for my skin. Xx

    1. Aw thank you! I really like the MJ masks too, they're really fun! :)
