November Empties

So here's a quick list of some of the products that I have run out of recently. Some of them are miniatures or travel sizes because they were easy for me to pack and bring to Malta. Luckily the boyfriend is coming out to visit me in a week so I have requested that he brings some replacements with him :)

Charles Worthington Brilliant Shine Shampoo and Conditioner
To be completely honest I didn't notice any difference to my hair when using these products. The only real positive I can say about them was the fact they were travel size so easy to pack into my suitcase.

Nobel Isle Summer Rising Body Wash
I really like this body wash. It lathers really nicely. A little of this product goes a long way. It has lasted me quite a while. I have only just run out of this, and I've been here 2 months. It also smells good. I've already written a review about this product when I tried it out when I first got it in a Glossybox. To read that post click here.

Clynol Enrich Colour Shampoo
Another Glossybox Product. This shampoo is specifically for coloured hair. My hair is dyed at the tips, so tends to get dry, but my hair felt so silky and soft after using this shampoo. A strange consistency (it looks more like a conditioner than a shampoo) but it works. A bit too expensive for my student (and abroad) budget, but this may make an appearance on my Christmas list.

YVES Rocher Ultra Sexy Pulp Mascara
I first tried this mascara when it came with a Glossybox (see post here) and since then my love for this product has grown. It is now my favourite day time mascara and I have already ordered a replacement. If you haven't tried this mascara before, then you should! Plus it's half price currently on the website.

Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner in Black
Not much to say about this product other then it's the only pencil eyeliner I've used that actually lasts on my eyes. What more could you want from an eyeliner :)

I have oily skin and for ages refused to wear moisturiser but after doing some research I found out that even oily skin can be dry and it's really important to moisturise. I bought this as it is specially for oily skin and found that my skin looks a lot healthier since using it, and my skin is a little bit less oily.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Sorry there were so many mentions of Glossybox, but I really loved receiving those boxes once a month. It's such a shame they don't deliver to Malta. I'd love to know what your views are on beauty boxes. I'm thinking of trying out Joliebox this Christmas when I go home. Do you have a preference?

  1. The Yves Rocher mascara seems to always get great reviews. I'll have to give it a go.

    1. The size of the brush is a little scary when you first see it, as it is so big. But it's just such a great mascara. It adds loads of length, and is build-able if you were looking for more volume :)


  2. I've never tried any n07 products before... I do want to give this a go though!

    I have oily skin but still load it with moisturiser, all skin needs moisture and people need to stop stripping their skin in an attempt to "clear it up".

    Great Post!

    1. It was a mistake I made to not moisturise my skin at all but I'm so pleased that I do now. It's made a noticeable difference. At the risk of sounding cliche, I checked out your blog, and I really like it. I love London and reading your reviews and recommendations makes me love it even more. Well done :) I can't wait to read more
