October Empties -- 10 products and counting!!

As I've decided to go on a beauty ban (conditions apply: unless things are ridiculously cheap), for the past month I've been trying to finish as many products as I could. Make-up are takes hella long to finish so I decided to quickly use up all the small and easy ones first like skincare samples that have been piling up in the corner.

Biore Gentle Make-Up Removing Wipes -- I really liked in comparison to their Deep Pore Cleansing one that I reviewed recently. No fragrance, didn't irritate my skin and worked really well!

Australis Make-Up Remover Wipes -- Disappointing. Reviewed it here. Driest make-up wipes everrrrr. I've tried the Lacura ones from Aldi which works ever better at 1/3 of the price I believe.

Dermal Masks in Cucumber, Platinum and Seaweed -- All worked well. Nothing over the top. Provided adequate hydration. If they're cheap, I'll definitely purchase them!

Avene Gentle Milk Cleanser -- Hell ya it's gentle! But not moisturising at all.

Kosmea Hydrating Rosewater Mist -- Meh. I didn't like this. It stung my eyes and didn't help my skin at all. I think it even made my skin feel tighter...

Pure Fiji Hydrating Body Lotion -- LOVE this scent! Smells like vanilla cupcakes! The body lotion is ok. Good if you're after preventing dry skin or have little dry skin. Already have two larger travel sized bottles :)

Revlon Beyond Natural Eyelashes in 91148 Defining* -- Didn't get a chance to use this. Told my sister to use 1 pair and she ended up screwing up one of the lashes so she used 3 lashes altogether leaving me with an awkward one side of the lashes. It looked amazingly natural on her though... in length and style. Must search for a similar style or wait for this to go on sale!

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser -- Gentle. I like it. But I'm after something more hydrating like a cream.

Nivea Daily Essentials Light Moisturising Day Cream -- It was okay. Lightweight and moisturising, but I'm after something heavier for the stupid dry patches on my cheeks.

Heronia Snail Face Mask -- Yeap. You read right. Snail face mask. Amazingly hydrating. I've yet to blog about it.. expect one soon :P

QV Body Cream -- Had this for 2 years now. I've finished it a while ago, but only found the packaging recently LOL! It's a good, moisturising body cream and I'm glad they have it in a squeeze tube form.

Sukin Hydrating Body Lotion -- Not hydrating enough, but is super lightweight. Not for me :(

Sukin Facial Moisturiser* -- Hydrating. Feels quite heavy when applied but eventually sinks in to be lightweight. Love this!! Doesn't have SPF though which means you can use it at night, but will have to fork out for a SPF product.

Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner -- Didn't think I needed this when I was using it, but I figured I couldn't live without a mist anymore. I loved using this after a freshly cleansed face as my skin would feel so tight after.. meep!

Nak Aromas Conditioner with Argan Oil -- I'm not a hair person, so I found this okay. Made my hair smooth and silky, but I don't think it's available locally, so no.

Olay Definity Illuminating Cream Cleanser -- I really don't know where I got this from, but it's not a true cream cleanser... more like a milk cleanser with exfoliating beads which is a no-no for dry skin. I didn't like it and not to mention, I didn't see any brightening effect after finishing it.

Original Source Lime Shower Gel -- Smells a-m-a-z-i-n-g!! I loved this stuff! It's so bright and it smells straight up like limes/lemons!

Organic Spa Cream Cleanser -- Awkward last sample. It had a funky scent, but worked good. I liked it, but it's not easily accessible so.. I'll wait till I see it around (maybe International Spa & Beauty Expo next year?).

Yippee!! I've finished 10 full sized products, 7 samples and 4 face masks! *pats self on the back* If I could keep this up, maybe 120 products a year? *Day-dreams.

How many products have you finished this month?

I can't wait to see how many products I finish next month!! Yippee yay!
