October Empties

LUSH Honey I Washed The Kids Shower Gel – I picked this up earlier in the year when we were on holiday in Adelaide buying a couple of bath bombs to use in our hotel bathtub. We were standing in line and Sebastian caught a whiff of this and loved it, so of course it came home with us. If you love the smell of honey this is definitely one to pick up.

Palmolive Naturals Milk & Honey Shower Milk – Are you sensing a theme with shower products here? Sebastian uses shower gel on a daily basis, so we go through bottles regularly. He prefers sweet ‘gourmand’ type scents, so this fit the bill. I didn’t use this so I can’t give much of a rating on it, but he seemed to like it well enough and it’s reasonably priced which is always a good thing.

Dove Go Fresh Pomegranate & Lemon Verbene Antiperspirant Deodorant – This is my favourite deodorant, and I use it daily so I go through about a bottle a month. The smell of this is amazing, it’s probably the best smelling drug store deodorant I’ve ever found. I don’t sweat that much, but I think this works well to keep my perspiration at bay.

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner – I was so sad to finish this up, because I don’t have a back up in my beauty cupboard and I’m trying to use up all of the stuff I own before purchasing anything new. This had all of the wonderful elements of the regular 3 minute miracle treatment, but with the added benefit of being light enough to use daily. It also smells 2000% better than the regular treatment, IMO.

Luminessence Candle in French Pear – I’ve had this candle for YEARS, so it was a relief to finally burn through it. I can’t remember where I got this from because it’s been such a long time, but if you stumble across this brand it’s worth checking out. This smelled amazing, and the throw of the candle was really impressive.

Lancome Hypnose Mascara – Can you believe I used up a full tube of this, my beloved holy grail mascara, and did not have a back up to use straight after? If you haven’t heard me rave about this mascara until I become blue in the face, consider yourself lucky. This is the best mascara I’ve ever used, and I’m so sad that this tube finished up.

sample: Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Wrinkle Recovery Peel – It’s always hard to judge the quality of a product based on a sample, but sometimes I come across something that works well enough for me to want to immediately purchase the full-sized version. This is one of those products. However the full-sized version of this is $128 AUD, so it’s on hold for now.

sample: RMS Beauty The Ultimate Makeup remover Wipe – I was skeptical about this when I first started using it to remove my makeup, but honestly once I was finished I was a convert. This wipe does a great job of removing makeup while still feeling really gentle on the skin. I also love the feeling of the coconut oil that remains on the skin, it feels like a little bit of luxury.
