November Empties

How is it already a week into December? I haven't even had a chance to blog about my November empties yet! It's been a busy week with work, buying a new car, starting to get ready for Christmas and season eight of Criminal Minds being released on DVD. 

I love December! It means Christmas and warmer weather and it is so good. Really looking forward to Christmas and spending time with family, stuffing myself with good food and relaxing. 

I have had a bit of a mini break from blogging and social media over the last week and it has been good. Detaching oneself from technology for a while never hurts. I feel it has given me the time to really relax and spend time with family and just have some quiet time. Everyone should do it occasionally!

O&M Hydrate & Conquer Shampoo and Conditioner*
I reviewed these back here. Liked them but won't repurchase at the moment, maybe in the future.

O&M Seven Day Miracle Moisture Mask*
I know this product has heaps of rave reviews but unfortunately it just didn't work for my hair. It didn't leaving my hair feeling moisturised, smooth or healthy. Won't purchase. 

John Frieda Precision Foam After Colour Conditioner
I didn't have high expectations of this product, but OMG! It is amazing. It left my hair feeling so silky smooth and soft. Any knots just seemed to slip out instantly. I have added this to my shopping list. 

Cottage Violet Sugar Gentle Exfoliating Shower Gel
I purchased this from Sasa online a couple of months ago. I love anything violet scented and this is no exception. Really enjoyed using this and I already have a backup (I purchased two at the same time).

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel
I love this shower gel. It is really like bathing in sugar. LOVE! Already repurchased, considering stockpiling this. 

Rexona Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant 
A regular in my empties. Already repurchased.

Happy Skincare Cloud 9 Deep Cleansing Balm
I really wanted to like this but sadly it is not as good as the Eve Lom Cleanser. It didn't fully remove makeup and was actually quite hard to get off the skin (even using a muslin cloth). 

I had a bit of a clean out of my mascaras again and these were the ones that it was time to bin. I don't strictly stick to the three month rule. I chuck them when the texture gets clumpy or the scent changes. 

Chanel Inimitable Intense
Really liked this mascara, it gives me heaps of long, black lashes. I would repurchase but I have about 3 sample tubes already.

Guerlain Exceptional Complete Mascara
I really, really liked this mascara. It made my lashes look big, thick and long. I probably wouldn't purchase as, if I remember correctly is really expensive. $60+ is too much for a mascara, even for me!

Lancome Hypnose Mascara
Sadly I didn't use this a lot before it went bad. It was good mascara. Though all Lancome mascaras are in my experience. 

So there are my empties for November! Hopefully my favourites will be up within the next day or two. Work is really busy at this time of the year so I am not sure how much time I'll have to post but I have a few posts I do want to write especially around Christmas releases and such.

What did you finish up in November?

  1. What a shame that the O&M mask didn't work for you. I adore the mask. It's a completely holy grail product for me :)

    1. I think I am just too in love with the Evo mask I use to love another :)

  2. I haven't used Eve Lom cleansers but I'm really enjoying that Happy Cleansing Balm at the moment :)
