March, April & May Empties

Over the last three months I have been extremely busy, with moving and personal issues, and although I have been going through products I didn't feel it was  neccessary to put up a separate post for each month as there wasn't enough items to make a post. So here are all of the products I have used up over the last three months :)


Models Prefer Eye Remove Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover - 

I wasn't a big fan of this as it is very oily and made my eyes sting, so I used this to wipe my hand after finishing my makeup as I often use my hand as a palette. I won't be repurchasing this product any time soon.

Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover -

This eye makeup remover wasn't as oily as the models prefer one, but it also wasn't very good at removing mascara (non waterproof) so in the end I ended up using it to take the left over makeup off my hand. This was a gift so I won't be going out of my way to buy it again, considering I prefer Bioderma's Crealine H20 better.

Woolworths select clear pore deep cleansing facial wipes - 

I purchased these as I had run out of my favourite Neutrogena makeup remover wipes, but theses do not compare. The woolworths cleansing facial wipes are a lot dryer then my neutorgena ones so they drag across my makeup instead of removing it correctly. I won't be trying these out again.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - 

I love these so much, I have been through three of these in the past three months, but I accidentally threw the other packets out. To read a full review on Neutrogenas Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes click here.



Revlon Professional Equave Blonde Detangling Conditioner - 

I absolutely loved this stuff, but unfortunately it got pushed to the back of the cupboard and forgotten. I found it a couple of weeks ago but it is defiantly out of date. I tried to search for it online but I think it has been discontinued so into the bin you go my friend. 

Bed Head by TIGI Urban Anti+dotes Shampoo - 

What drew me to this shampoo was the smell, it has an amazing sweet fruit smell that lingers in your hair for days. If you haven't tried any of TIGI's products then you won't know that they all have pretty fantastic scents, but I would totally recommend this product as I found it helped keep my blonde hair from breaking so much. I will be buying this again after I have used up my stash of shampoos.

Klorane Dry Shampoo - 

When I spoke to my local Klorane rep she mentioned how Klorane ttys to reduce the itchiness dry shampoo causes, and I do agree I found my head less itchy whilst using this product. The downside is that it is more then $5 more then Batiste which isn't a lot of money for a normal person, but it is to me as I am tying to save for a house. So for now I won't be buying Klorane's dry shampoo unless it is on sale.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Fresh - 

I have been a long time user of Batiste, starting off the with Tropical scented dry shampoo and then moving onto the Fresh scent when it came out. The fresh scent is my favourite as it is not too overpowering, and i think sometimes the tropical can be too strong for me. I have already purchased a new can of this :)


Lush's Ro's Argan Body Conditioner * - 

I recently wrote a review on this product because I love it that much! It is a great body conditioner, and I recommend it to anyone who suffered with dry skin, especially with winter coming up you're going to need it! To read my review click here

Smart Value Makeup remover cotton pads X2 - 

I found these at BigW for $2 and had to get them, turns out they are really good value for money and also really hard to find. I have purchased a few packets of these just incase i can't find them in the future.

Daiso Detergent for puff and sponge - 

This is a well known beauty secret now, as it is so cheap and effective which is why everyone loves it, including me. Really good at removing makeup from makeup brushes and sponges.

Avene Micellar Lotion Sample - 

This has been talked up to be very similar to Bioderma's Crealine H20, but it didn't match up to me. I mainly used this to remove makeup from my hand and wouldn't purchase the full size.


Australis Ready Set Go Translucent Finishing Powder - 

One of my Holy Grail face powders, and so cheap! Really love this stuff and have already purchased a new one.

Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer - 

This is a really good primer, and smells amazing like the rest of the flower perfection line. Unfortunatley Bourjois have discontinued the flower perfection range so I cannot re purchase it.

Nars Light Reflecting Setting Powder - 

I purchased this online and didn't realise it was a dupe for the Australis ready set go, so I was pretty bummed but I used it all up of course. I won't be re purchasing this because of the hefty price tag.

Physicians Formula Mineral Correcting Powder -

I grabbed this last year while it was on sale and finally got around to using it in march. This powder really does correct redness, but it did make me look a little pale in photos. I would purchase this again if it is on sale.


Essence Stay Natural Concealer * - 

This Concealer is quite moisturising so it was really good for under the eyes, and it did a good job at hiding my bags. I would consider re-purchasing this after I have gone through my stash of concealers.

Bath & Body Works PocketBac in Crimson Plum - 

These are amazing!! I only have 4 of them left which saddens me because it is quite an effort getting them from the US. If you haven't tried any of the Pocketbacs then I suggest you do ASAP!

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer - 

Another Holy Grail item of mine, which I love to death. This concealer is oh so wonderful at hiding my old acne scars on my cheeks and chin. Love this stuff!!

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara sample - 

I am so happy I tried this out as it is not something I would of purchased before trying a sample. This mascara really is great at volumizing and lengthening my flat lashes. I cannot wait to get my hands on this again.
