October Empties

October Empties.

Hello all, hope you are all well. Another empties post, hasn't October gone quick!?

I hope you don't mind my Monthly Empties posts. I noticed they are very similar as I don't tend to mix it up when it comes to hair care, body care and make - up. I kind of stick to what I know, but I am going to delve into my cupboards and try and use up the things I have left behind!

Tesco 'Pink' Body Spray -54p

Another very cheap body spray again. I seem to go through body sprays like no tomorrow! This was nice at first spray, but throughout the day it began smelling like TCP! It was okay, but I don't think I'll buy this one again in a hurry.

Avon Little Black Dress Perfume 50ml - Around £10

Everyone knows how much I adore this scent. Its very mature and has a hint of musk to it, and honestly does linger all day. I am sad to see it go, as I know I wont get another until Christmas (I always get it at Christmas) as I don't have an Avon book delivered any more. 

Avon Little Black Dress Parfum Body Spray - £2

As I said above, this scent is delicious and lasts a long time on the skin, I think its very affordable for a perfume body spray. I proabbly wont buy this for a while unless it is gifted to me at Christmas, which is a shame.

So...? Fab EDT 30ml - £5.99

I adore this little spray. It is very cheap and affordable, so I pick one up every month or so to pop in my bag for work. It is super sweet and I adore it. I will be repurchasing this soon.

Garnier Daily All-In-One BB Cream (In Light) Sample

I really wanted to pick up a BB cream as an alternative to foundation in the day time. I gave this sample a trial last week and it was much too dark for my skin. It states light on the packet so I am unsure what shade it is. I cant really comment on its effectiveness as I didn't wear it for long due to the colouring.

Benefit The Porefessional Pro Balm

I had previously purchased the full sized product of this way back in Summer 2010, and I absolutely hated it. Soon after using it daily, I completely broke out in absolutely awful skin. I never went back to the Benefit Counter to complain, but assumed I may have got one of a 'bad batch', because all of the reviews I had read raved about how amazing it was. When it was free in Instyle magazine a few months back, I decided to give it another go, having not used it for 2 years. I was wrong to try this again. My skin didn't break out again but I did have quite a few blemishes appear after using it for about two weeks, and I believe it was the culprit. I don't really think it keeps my make-up on much longer, or makes my make-up look a great deal better, either. I personally would not repurchase this from previous experience, it may be my skin type as I have very oily skin, I am unsure. I am just glad to be rid of it and wont be picking it up again, freebie or not!

Superdrug Dry Shampoo in Chocolate Brownie - £1.99

Two more of my favourite dry shampoos are gone (I tend to use about fave bottles of the same thing at the same time, am I weird?!) and another has been used up since then! I adore it, great for giving a fresh look and giving volume to the hair. As I have said in the past, it is a dark brown liquid which is brilliant as most dry shampoos are white or clear and are noticeable on my hair. I will most definitely be stocking up on some more!

That is all I have photographed this month, I forgot to photograph a Alberto Balsam Shampoo and also random deodorants. I am useless at remembering to photograph things before I chuck them out!
How was your October?


  1. lol I always throw away a lot of empties before I take photos of them. Either that or my mam does! Aw that sucks that the Porefessional didn't work out well, I love it! I find Too Faced Primed & Poreless very similar. I used to use that BB Cream too when my skin was dry, but now use the one for combo/oily skin and LOVE it! x

    1. hehe me too, especially shampoos and body washes as I dont even think about it and they go in the bin straight away!
      Aw really? I know a lot of people love it but it just doesn;t get on with me :(
      I really want to find a good BB cream so will definitely have to look around :) xx
