October 2015 Empties!

This post will be much shorter than my honeymoon empties (and with prettier pictures too!!). Although, I did still manage to use up quite a few product when I got home from the trip!! 

Here is a look at my October empties:

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser ~ $13.00. A refreshing instant foaming cleanser for blemished skin. Gently but effectively cleanses skin. Removes make-up and impurities. Regular cleansing will help keep skin blemish-free.

I have loved this cleanser - I usually use it at night time after an oil cleanser. I worked great and I had super clear skin while using this! Definitely a repurchase!

Bioderma Sensibio H2O ~ $20 for 250ml. A cleansing and make-up removing water that respects the fragility of sensitive skin.

I have done a whole review on this product here and it also made my August monthly favorites here. I don't call too many products my holy grail but this is it - I will never (or not very often) use another product to remove my makeup - this stuff is amazing and so gentle. Worth the money - it has already been repurchased!

BareBox Organic Moisturizer Moisturize your face with only the best. The ingredients in our moisturizer have been perfectly combined to give you the most amazing skin possible. We were able to accomplish this all while leaving out harmful chemicals that hurt your skin in the long run.

I subscribed to Bare Box a long time ago and I stopped because I wasn't huge on their social media strategies and it really bugged me! I have to say this moisturizer smelled amazing - so good! It was very light and great for the summer (which is when I used the majority of the product) It was good, but I do have other moisturizers I like better so I would not repurchase this. 

Me Thyme Shea Body Butter in "Vanilla" ~ 2 oz for $14 and 8 oz for $34. Our Body Butters contain 20% Shea Butter and is blended with Olive Oil and Vitamin E and other moisturizers to soothe and soften the skin. Shea Butter is also known to protect against sun damage and photo aging. Your skin will be radiant and soft.

I have reviewed this product here before and I loooove whipped body lotion. This smells so good and it very light on the skin and leaves no oily residue on the skin! this will be a repurchase. 

Garnier Skin Naturals Fresh Cleansing Cloths Face & Eyes ~ $5.97. Cleansing Cloths enriched with grape extract. 2 Doses Of Makeup Removing Lotion In 1 Cloth. 

I have read that these were a good brand of makeup wipes but blah, not good. I found them quite dry and they did not remove my eye makeup well and I hate the thought of being rough while removing makeup - would not repurchase! 

Palmetto Derma Collagen Booster and Restoration Serum ~ $48. Sun, smoke, and smog suck! But this spring, you're in luck because we're giving you a free radical fighting super serum to keep your skin safe from the daily elements. This powerful formula increases collagen growth, rapidly slows down the aging process, fills fine lines, and minimizes wrinkles once and for all!

I got this in a FabFitFun box and it was okay - I used it after cleansing and toning in the morning as the step before my emulsion/lotion. It wasn't my favorite booster and I would not repurchase it - while I liked it, I thought it didn't do enough for my skin to justify the price! 

Elite Therapeutics Rosemary Eucalptus Body Cream ~ sample size 0.5 oz for $1.19 (full size is 8 oz for $19).Smooth on natural goodness for your whole body! Never greasy, this luxe lotion replenishes your skin with an organic blend of oils and healing Aloe Vera - plus, it smells divine, too. 

This has a very strong smell - I didn't mind because it reminded me of going to a spa; but, it wasn't a huge sample size - I think I got 2 full uses out of this. It worked well, but I wouldn't go out of my way to repurchase this - it was just okay. (I got this in a past Beauty Box 5)

Touch by Lee Kyung Min Extreme Shield Master ~ full size $46. This Extreme Shield Master is a magical ampoule enriched with essence type oil components for instant moisture surge. It effectively calms and takes care of white flakes and visible dead skin cells evident on dry, roughened skin suffering from piercing winter winds.

I was intrigued to use an ampoule with this type of applicator, but I really disliked this! There was not a lot of product in it and it was a pain to get out and use. The ampoule was fine once it was out, but I would not repurchase this.

Etude House Moistfull Super Collagen Ampoule Essence ~ bonus sample. This ampoule essence contains 90% Super Collagen TM of gel texture, providing firm and smooth skin with its collagen concentrate moistly absorbing into skin.

I got this as an extra with the Moistfull Lotion from Memebox and I really liked this! This little bottle lasted so long and made my skin feel really great! I have one more ampoule to use up, but this will be a repurchase! 

B. Kamins Maple Sugar Body Scrub ~ sample size 0.4 oz for $3.39 (full size is 5.9oz for $50). A luxurious, moisturizing body scrub to help exfoliate and improve microcirculation to the skin’s surface. Pure Bio-Maple Sugar™ contains a cocktail of natural anti-oxidant vitamins, AHAs and essential mineral salts which provide vital nutrients to brighten dull, dry skin. The result is an indulgent, soothing massage treatment that leaves skin hydrated, smooth, soft and supple.

I was hoping to love this body scrub because it smelled really great! But it was actually quite sticky for a scrub and I didn't think it did a lot for my skin. I would not repurchase. (I got this in a past Topbox).

Kiss Nail Art Polish in Black ~ approx. $2 (sold in a set of 3 for $6.99). Polish, draw, create your own fashionable nail art with three vibrant colors and a fine-tip precision brush.

I loved this - it lasted forever and the brush is awesome!!! I need to repurchase this right away!

OPI Top Coat ~ $9.95. OPI Top Coat is to be applied over any manicure and prevents nail polish from chipping or peeling. This will keep your nails stronger and polish job lasting longer.

This is probably my favorite top coat to date! I really liked it and thought it made my polish long lasting. I will repurchase this soon (I have another top coat to use up first). 

Naiad Soap Arts Sugar Scrub ~ $2ish for 2 oz (full size 10 oz for $14.00). Yumm! That's the first thought that comes to mind when we open this sugar scrub's jar. Their Sugar Whipped Soap is a convenient scrub and soap in one! Fine sugar gently polishes and softens skin, with tons of bubbly lather and skin loving moisturizers! Use everyday and make your skin happy. 

I got this in the old Indulge Me box and I loved the smell it was so good! I wasn't thrilled with how this product went on and it was hard to use. But I wish everything I owned smelled like this - I would not repurchase though. 

Sore Soak Foaming Salts ~ $9.50. As we take advantage of all that summer has to offer - the gardening, boating, hiking, camping, etc - we tend to push our bodies harder. The resulting stiff and sore muscles need a little TLC. Our Sore Soak features Epsom salts, Sea Salts and a special blend of essential oils that are all crafted to give relief. The addition of a special, natural foaming agent helps take the bath to the next level. 

These were so awesome to use - I certainly needed them when I got them in Bath Time Box. They smelled really great and made me feel better and more relaxed! I would likely repurchase these! 

Got Bubbles? Natural Bubble Bath ~ $9.50. This botanical bubble bath is made from Plant derived ingredients and features a delicate blend of Orange and Cinnamon with a hint of Pink Grapefruit. Only a small amount is needed for lots  of long lasting bubble. Oh and did I mention it also features lots of moisturizing, skin loving ingredients and extracts?

These bubbles smelled really good and worked really well - again these were from Bath Time Box! I got a lot of uses out of this bottle! I would likely repurchase these as well (I love all my bath goodies!)

Hawaiian Gardenia Bath Salts ~ $10.75 for 8 oz. Enjoy a soak in this four salt blend and let the exotic aroma  take you away.

I loved the smell of these bath salts - again, I'm loving all the bath goodies I have been getting from Bath Time Box! I have made so much time for myself in bubble baths and these were a great addition! They lasted a long time, so I would probably repurchase if I were going to buy bath salts (but I do prefer bubbles more).

Altogether in October, I used up 16 products! And if you caught my previous post, you know I just used up an additional 56 products while on my honeymoon! I would say that is a pretty great amount of products to use up!
