October Empties

October Empties
 I love… Mango Face Mask from September JolieBox. You can read my review of this here. I really enjoyed using this face mask and it helped clear up my Winter dry patches. Re-purchase? Yes.

WellaFlex Silvikrin Hairspray. This hairspray did a good enough job though I think I picked up a dodgy can as it seemed to spray in every direction except straight forward! Re-purchase? Probably not as the spraying situation put me off.

 Nivea Daily Essentials Cleansing Wipes. I’ve been using these for ages now and have only just realised that I’m using the ones for dry and sensitive skin, bit silly really when I have oily skin! They work well though and I would recommend them. Re-purchase? Yes, but for the correct skin type.

Oh! Organics Melissa Moisturiser*. You can read my review of this here. I really enjoyed using this moisturiser though it is a little expensive. Re-purchase? Possibly, I’m on a mission to find my ideal moisturiser at the moment and this hasn’t been ticked off the list.

 Soap & Glory Clean on Me Shower Gel. I received this for Christmas last year and have only now used it up. I like to keep little bottles like this for travelling, it has been to two caravans with me this year. I love the scent of this and it doesn’t dry out my skin. Re-purchase? Yes.

Quinoderm 5. You can read my review of this here. This has worked wonders for my acne, though I’m sure it isn’t doing my skin much good as it is quite a harsh cream. I will carry on using this while I wait for my dermatologist appointment to come through as it makes me feel a lot more confident. That being said, my spots have started to come back through, I’m hoping that this is due to the change in the weather. I am considering upping to the Quinodern 10 to see how that works for me.  Re-purchase? I’ve already got my repeat prescription but may purchase the stronger cream instead.

Naked Clear Anti-Dandruff Conditioner*. Quite unusually I finished the conditioner before the shampoo, it almost always happens the other way around! I enjoyed using this natural product and it did keep my dandruff at bay. It is slightly more expensive that what I would normally pay for hair care. Re-purchase? If on offer.

Witch Anti-Blemish Skin Clearing Primer. I won this ages ago in one of Witch’s Flawless Follower Twitter competitions. So many people had raved about this so I couldn’t wait to try it. Unfortunately I was disappointed. Quite ironically this skin clearing primer seemed to break me out every time I used it. I gave it a lot of tries as well, so many that I used the whole bottle! Re-purchase? No.

    Clean on me is one of my favourites, it's in my next empties too 😉 I'd try upping to the 10, my brother uses the same!

      They seem to have calmed down a little now so I haven't upped to the 10 yet, I'm so worried about upsetting my skin so close to the big day. It is hard to know what to do for the best. x
