Binned Things November 2015!


Ah, yes, the good old empties! Obviously running a little late, but better late than never, right? Be prepared for a bit of a bumper pack, considering that I still haven't gotten around to doing the December ones!


1) Listerine Total Care Mouthwash - Staple!
Repurchase? Always

2) In Essence Sleep Easy Spray - I have to say, I think this really did help me sleep better. I kinda miss it now that I don't have one.
Repurchase? Yes!

3) Models Prefer Brightening Primer - I quite liked this primer! I thought it did brighten up my skin
Repurchase? Yes

4) Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturiser - A great moisturiser with a lovely scent. Vaseline certainly does a lot of things right!
Repurchase? Yes


5) Rosehip by Essano Hand Creme - Great packaging, but honestly, not my favourite hand cream. I found this to be not as moisturising as ideal, and the consistency was both thin and waxy. See further review here.
Repurchase? No

6) Natio Body Scrub - I bought this as something new to try from Natio, and I have to say, it's not my cup of tea. It's a little sticky, and I found the gritty bits to be a little too fine. It's quite pretty decent pomegranate-y scent, though!
Repurchase? No

7) Natura Siberica Obleipikha and Honey Body Scrub - You HAVE to try this for yourself! See full review here.
Repurchase? Yes!

8) Dermalogica Daily Microexfoliant - I really like this scrub in that it was nice and gentle on my skin, but what I didn't appreciate was how easily the opening of the container got clogged up with clumped microexfoliant! 
Repurchase? Maybe


9) Antipodes Apostle Skin Brightening Serum - Not the most magnificent serum ever, but really quite lovely on the skin, with a slightly sweet scent to it.
Repurchase? Yes

10) Soap & Glory Hand Food - A pretty pleasant hand cream from a well marketed brand. I'd use another one in a heartbeat.
Repurchase? Yes

11) Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant - If there were a zombie apocalypse, Imma grab about 10 of these before driving off.
Repurchase? YES!

12) Schwarzkopf Push-Up Volume Lotion - When I first used this, I was a little heavy handed with it., and it got sticky. I did try it again and it's actually quite ok. It's not too bad, but I left it for too long and it got quite old.  
Repurchase? Maybe


13) Rodial Super Acids Extreme Hangover Mask - I liked using this one for that light tingly feel on the skin. See here for a bit more of a review.
Repurchase? Likely

14) The Face Shop Character Mask (Tiger) - A bit of a fun one! I posted a shot of me wearing this on Instagram a while back. It's not particularly spectacular on the skin, but it's not bad, and it's cute!
Repurchase? For the novelty!

15) Etude House I Need You, Lemon! Face Mask - Brightening and refreshing! I liked this one!
Repurchase? Yes

16) Etude House I Need You, Mango! Face Mask - I found this to be quite soothing on the skin.
Repurchase? Likely


17) Woolworths Select Make up Pads - Love them! Accidentally ran out of them recently, and I was really confused! I thought I had tons of them!
Repurchase? Yes!

18) Ole Henriksen Fresh Start Eye Cream - This didn't do much for dark eye bags, but I thought it did reduce a bit of the swelling.
Repurchase? Yes

19) Lush Happy Hippy Shower Gel - Refreshing and grapefruity! It's a very happy shower gel indeed.
Repurchase? Yes

20) Philosophy Hands of Hope Hand Cream - See review here. A hand cream I wouldn't mind getting more of!
Repurchase? Likely


21) L'Oreal Pro Fiber Recharge Monodoses - I really enjoyed using this range of haircare! See more about the range here.
Repurchase? 

22) Dr Morita Face Mask - This mask was a fun facial sheet, but nothing amazing happened.
Repurchase? No

23) L'Occitane Roses et Reines Hand Cream - Gorgeous rose scented hand cream by L'Occinate! A serious 'what's not to like?' with this one!
Repurchase? Yes

24) Simple Eye Make-Up Corrector Pen - This grew stuff on the tip! I didn't think this was very easy to use and things just got a little smeary.
Repurchase? No

25) Lush Nightwing Shower Jelly - A fun limited edition shower jelly! Zesty and in the shape of a batwing!
Repurchase? Yes

26) Milani Brow Tint Pen - This did not work for me at all! It just didn't come off onto the skin and it wasn't what I thought it'd be.
Repurchase? No


That La Roche Posay makeup remover is awesome! Also, I enjoyed using that Philosophy serum - I would love to try a full sized bottle of that.

And that's everything I used up in November! Now hold on tight, because there are tons more of the good old empties to come!

  3. I know what you mean with the microfoliant clogging in the top.

  5. I didn't find the Skin Brightening serum to do much for me but I love the consistency of it. I haven't used Happy Hippy in such a long time but my fave scent is The Olive Branch. Maybe you can kill the zombies by rolling the deo all over them???! lol

  6. I'm envious of how much you're able to finish! I haven't tried anything here, but I have considered getting that Dermalogica microfoliant in the past.

  9. Oh my goodness, thats an impressive empties list! I love that you hold your personal hygiene higher than say canned goods, bottled water, matches and whatever we need to kill the zombies! I'll be your tent-mate if there's a zombie invasion! You grab some extras for me and I'll grab all the other non-essentials i listed above lol xx
