January 2014 Product Empties

I can't believe that the first month of 2014 is almost over, It seems like January just flew by 
I have a mix of product empties from December 2013 and January 2014. Here are the products I've used up within the last couple of months.

January 2014 Product Empties

  1. CLINIQUE  Liquid Facial Soap
    My HG face wash. I've been using Clinique's liquid face soap for about 10 years now. I love the simplicity of the 3 step system. I've re-purchased this already.

  2. LUSH Rub Rub Rub: Body Scrub
    I've reviewed this product before (click here). It's only $12.95 from Lush stores. What I love about this scrub is that it works well, it isn't very abrasive and smells wonderful. I have already re-purchased this.

  3. SALLY HANSEN Strengthening Nail Polish RemoverAnother HG product that I've re-purchased. I found that this polish remover is strong enough to remove stubborn polish yet still gentle on natural nails.

  4. CLINIQUE Deep Comfort Body Lotion
    I got two deluxe samples from a FGWP offer from Clinique a while a go. The full size product is sized at 400ml and priced at AU$52.00. Although I liked the feel of the lotions on my skin, I think the price is a little hefty for a body moisturiser. I get the same results from pharmacy brand products. I won't be re-purchasing this body lotion.

  5. SWISSPERS Nail Polish Remover Pads
    These are handy to have when you're travelling. They remove light layers of polish but anything more than two layers will have you using at least 1 pad per nail which is really wasteful. I also found that it's hard to remove all traces of darker polishes. I still have another brand of nail polish remover pads so I won't be re-purchasing these.

  6. CLINIQUE Dramatically Different Face Lotion
    I used up a deluxe sample of the original formula for Clinique's Dramatically Different face lotion. I adored the thick-ish formula but the new lighter formula feels a lot better on my face.

  7. LANCOME Bi-Facil Eye Make Up Remover 
    My favourite eye makeup remover. I haven't tried anything else that removes stubborn mascara easily. I highly recommend this, even though it's pricey it's totally worth it. You only need to use a little bit and it works wonders. I have already re-purchased this.

  8. TYPO Owl Pen
    This one isn't a beauty product but it has been the pen I've been using to write with (including post ideas). I love the colour and how cute the design is. Definitely will be re-purchasing this if I see it in stores.

  9. BOBBI BROWN Cleansing Oil Sample
    It probably isn't fair to judge a product by a small sample amount (especially because I love Bobbi Brown) but I really didn't find this product that inspiring. It claims to dissolve makeup but It didn't take off my foundation properly. At $60 I think it's a little expensive and considering it didn't really work for me I don't think I'll be buying the full size. If you want to try a smaller size Bobbibrown.com.au are currently selling 30ml for $20.00. Cheaper than forking out $60.00 but I still feel like this is too expensive for a so-so cleanser.

  10. CLINIQUE All About Eyes: Eye Cream
    I have quite a few of these from buying multiple fgwp at Clinique. This is my favourite day cream. It's luxurious yet light weight. I won't need to re-purchase this for awhile because I still have a few jars left.

  11. MAC Face & Body FoundationMy first ever trial of MAC foundation. I loved the formula but the shade that I was matched with was wrong. I'll try another shade because I love the light formula and even coverage.

  12. Perfume Atomiser
    I bought at imitation Travalo perfume spray and wasted good perfume in the process. The idea was to be able to carry my perfume in a smaller vial but this one was a cheapy imitation so my perfume ended up leaking at the bottom and ruining my bag's lining. Not Happy Jan! but you get what you pay for...

  13. JOHNSON & JOHNSON'S Baby Oil
    I didn't actually finish this product which was such a shame because it was a full bottle. Unfortunately the lid was broken. I didn't have the receipt for when Ibought this so I couldn't even return it. Despite the total waste, I bought another bottle of baby oil. It's such a multi purpose product. I use it as a body moisturiser, a base oil for scrubs and as a soothing oil post waxing.

  14. BLOCK & WHITE Antiperspirant
    My favourite anti antiperspirant. I buy this from a Filipino grocery store. It doesn't leave white marks on my clothing, keeps the sweats away. It also reduces hair growth (yay!) and helps remove dead skin thus reducing darkening.
And that concludes this month's product empties. 
What products have you finished up this month?

  1. The antiperspirant sounds interesting! I have a big empties post coming up - I don't feel like I'm making much of a dent at all!

    1. I hear ya...It seems that I never run out of things to finish. I really should stop impulse buying. I'd love to see your empties post. Let me know when you've posted it up. =)
