November Empties

Everytime I finish a product, I think "Great! My stash is getting smaller".... until the doorbell rings, and the postman is at the door with parcels for me. Anyone else have that problem?

I've managed to use up quite a few products this month, some of which were partially used in my Europe & Singapore trip.

1. Babyliss Pro Argan Oil Moisture Repair Conditioner
I wasn't all that impressed by this conditioner. It didn't moisturize my hair enough for me to think "HG conditioner alert!" It does however smell quite nice! :) But I won't be repurchasing because there are waaaay too many conditioners out there to try that smell nice.

2. Kao Biore Face Wash in Cool
I looove this face wash! I bought this from Singapore and when I first used it (thankfully, I used it over there), I was like OMG I NEED MOAR!! So I went to buy another. This has my favourite ingredient in it... Menthol! It leaves my face feeling so fresh and clean! It works great with the Clarisonic, and will definitely repurchase next time I'm in Singapore.
(P.S. Sorry for the crap photo... Took it with my iPhone and it was at night)

3. Make Up For Ever HD Primer
Omfg I've FINALLY finished using this bottle of primer. I was starting to get sick of using this every morning. I purchased this when I was in the US a year ago. I didn't start using it back then though. I think this bottle lasted me about 3 months. Like all the primers I've used, this primer did not stand out enough for me to want to repurchase it. There are far too many primers to try out!

4. Benefit The Porefessional 7.5ml
When I finished the Make Up For Ever primer, I was like great! Now I can finish up using this benefit sample from Europe/Singapore. I only had 2 uses out of it before it was empty... If you've been reading my blog for quite some time now (or reading about the make up for ever primer), I have said a few times how this primer does not stand out from all the primers I've used, and will not be repurchasing. It works in the sense that I find that it provides a smooth canvas for my foundation to be applied onto, and also assists in prolonging the wear of my foundation and concealer. But I haven't actually come across a primer that doesn't do that! Maybe I need to try a crap one, to fully appreciate all these other primers I've got...
5. Maybelline the Falsies Volum' Express Waterproof in Black
I'm pretty sure I got this mascara in one of my crazy shops in the states last year. I only started using this mascara slightly more than a month ago and it's gotten clumpy already, which is why it's going in the bin. I have been using it almost everyday though. It's a great mascara, as it does what it says and adds volume, but not until it looks like I'm wearing falsies. I would repurchase this if I didn't already have a gazillion mascaras to use.

6. Neutrogena deep clean ultra-foam cleanser
I received this in my July BellaBox, started using it in August and FINALLY finished using this in November. Although, I didn't take this with me to Europe/Singapore. So this lasted about 3 months. I liked this cleanser because it has menthol in it, but I don't think I'd repurchase as I prefer my Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser and the Kao Biore cleanser in Cool. I think I prefer cream cleansers to foamy cleansers when it comes to use with a clarisonic. I don't know why but it feels like cream type cleansers do a better job in cleansing my face than foam.

That's all I've got for November Empties! Have you finished any products that you think were fantastic, and I need to try it or my life will be incomplete?


  1. I know exactly what you mean! I always feel so happy once I finish a product and thennn I go on a shopping trip.

    Have you tried the Nuxe Reve di Miel? I'm about to finish it and it is suchh a good lipbalm!


    1. Hahaha glad someone also has the same problems as me!

      No I havent, will look it up now! Thank you!

  2. I have a tendency to try new products when I finish them too! :)

  3. wow great products. I have the same mascara)
