November Empties!

Another month has come and gone, and that means it's time for another monthly favorites! :D I personally love reading these types of posts, hence the reason I've started writing them myself! This month I've used up quite a bit of products. Here we go! :)

I've used up mostly lotions and perfumes, but there is the odd eyeliner haha ;)

First up is Dove's Go Fresh Body Mist in Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena. I kept this body mist in my purse as a "refresher" (lol) so it took quite a while to use up. I love the smell, and it lasts quite a while for a body spray. I've repurchased Dove's Body Mist in the Nectarine and White Ginger scent, but I have to admit I prefer the pomegranate one.

My next empty is Fruits & Passion's Radiance Gentle Cleansing Mousse. I had put this travel size mousse away and had forgotten about it until I rediscovered it at the end of October. It is extremely gentle on the skin, and is appropriate for all skin types. It contains pomegranate (haha here I go again with the pomegranate), pineapple, and papaya extracts as well as olive oil derivatives. I liked it, but i wasn't fond of it, so I will not be repurchasing.

Now, let me share with you the best eye makeup remover I have EVER used! Yves Rocher's Soft Eye Makeup Remover with Chamomile is extremely gentle and does not irritate my eyes, unlike every other eye makeup remover I've tried in the past. This is holy grail stuff right here ladies!

Both the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner have kept my hair  nice and clean throughout the last few months. They smell yummy, and they are great at keeping those darn frizzies away! I really love Garnier hair products...if you haven't tried the brand yet, you definitely should!

Next up is the Love Etc. Purse Spray by The Body Shop. I am seriously obsessed with this scent, but unfortunately I've had a hard time finding the purse spray version of this eau de parfum. I am trying to use up my other full sized perfumes so I don't want to buy the full sized version of this one just yet... I know I eventually will though hehe ;)

Avon's Foot Works Marine Salt Invigorating Scrub has come in handy this time of the year. My skin gets really dry, and my feet are no exception. This leaves my feet silky smooth, it's quite impressive actually! This was my first ever foot scrub product, and although I really liked it, I think I will venture out and try a different one next!

I love Dove (as you may have noticed lol). So it is no surprise that I quickly used up Dove's Go Fresh Cool Moisture Body Wash in the Cucumber and Green Tea Scent. Pair it with a luffa sponge and your dry skin does not stand a chance!

Last but not least, the only makeup product I've used up this past month: Almay's Intense i-color Eyeliner in 004 Raisin Quartz. It comes in a twist tube, which I love because it is super smooth and glides onto your eyelid and lower lash line. It's a nice, slightly shimmery deep purple that looks beautiful on green eyes!

That's it! Have I spiked your interest with any of these products? :D

  10. I used to buy the Dove spray in that scent as well. It's heavenly! I love the garnier fructis hair products but their shampoos/conditioners are too heavy for my hair because it's so fine. Such a shame though!


  11. Nice products

    Thank you for stopping by and linking up at the Friday Chaos this week.
