Empties: November and December 2015

I can't believe we are fast approaching the end of 2015! It's been a busy but good oned! I didn't end up finishing a lot of products in the past two months but here we go anyway..

La Mav Gel Cleanser*
This was a lovely gel cleanser, I did use it to clean make up off my face and it worked surprisingly well. Even though my pump stopped working towards the end of the product, I've been utterly impressed with all the La Mav's products so far.

Repurchase? Possibly, but after trying Rosehip Plus' Cream Cleanser, I think I prefer a cream formula.

Premium Spa face and Body Mask*
I did not like this product as a facial clay mask, it stung my face a little. It wasn't too bad as a full body mask, however, I would not recommend using this during winter unless you are in a heated room. The clay is quite cool, so it's fantastic during grotty hot summer days.

Repurchase? I have a spare! Although I probably wouldn't repurchase after I finish up the spare.

V10Plus Hyaluronic Acid Serum
I absolutely love this fast absorbing serum, my skin always feel well hydrated after application. I have only tried a couple of V10Plus products, both left very good impressions. (See full review here)

Repurchase? Possibly, but I'm on a budget (as always) and I'll have to think about it due to it's price tag

Mary Kay Make-Up Remover
I've used up one of this before, it's a gem at removing waterproof mascara, I'd say that it's as good as your more expensive Lancome make up removers.

Repurchase? Yes


Model Co Lip Lacquer
I actually never liked this lip lacquer and had just been using it for the sake of it. Haven't had any luck with Model Co products and generally find their products to be tacky, irritating (for my skin) or of poor quality. Now that I have enough lippies to keep me occupied, this is going to the bin!

Repurchase? No

Cover Girl Smoothers Foundation
I dug this up from god knows where, this would've been one of the second foundations I've purchased so it must be at least 6-7 year old.


2Glo By natural Glamour
This was received from a previous beauty box, I used it once and really disliked it. The concealer applies as the medium shade but oxidises into a muddy looking colour.

Repurchase? No

And last but not least, some finished samples, nothing really stood out for me this round. Hopefully I'll have more empties to share next month!

  1. Love, love the Mary Kay remover! I find those Model Co lip lacquers so sticky. I don't think I even bothered to open the last one I received in a Lust Have it pack. Enjoy the last days of 2015. Wishing you all the best for the new year! x

  2. Wow, a body mask! That sounds really interesting and very nice for the summer since it has a cooling feeling :D I'm sorry about the bin ones! concealers are really hard to find, and really strange to get in a beauty box because they're usually very different for everyone in terms of shades!

  3. The Mary Kay makeup remover sounds really good! Haven't tried any Mary Kay products before!
    Personally Model Co seems to be a bit of a off company to me every since youtubers have found mould in some of their products!

  5. Great empties. I'm a fan of the Mary Kay makeup remover too, it does wonders! I'm also not really a fan of Model Co products; most of the products I have tried seem really cheap and not so good

  6. A little bit TMI, but did you think that Vagisil wipe cause a bunch of tingling/burning?

  7. I did at first, but when i didnt have shower facilities, i used it and grown accustom to the wipes, it eventually stopped tingling and burning haha. I wouldnt willingly use it though, however i did reccommend my friend to take a pack with her to india for 10days!

  8. The Mary Kay makeup remover sounds really good. I'm actually trying out their translucent powder and a highlighter at the moment that I've been really liking. Great post xxx beyoutyfulyou.com
