Autumn Empties 2017

I love reading an empties post, there is something so satisfying about seeing an empty product - then getting to hear the final thoughts on it. Empties is something I have done since starting the blog, and it isn't something I ever plan on stopping - its refreshing to discuss binning rather than buying - even if I will head out and repurchase lol. So here is the bits I have used up the past few months!

This was the free item when I took back my empty pots. I love the fresh face masks, I only wish they would last a little longer. It is a mission to use it all up before it expires. I love this one though, it really helps to clear up breakouts and generally help your skin to feel much clearer. 

This is without a doubt my favourite lush mask, the minty smell and the general performance of this is just fantastic. I love using it when my skin is at it's worse too - so good for clearing out pores and just helping your face to feel clearer again. 

This is without a doubt my favourite low end shower gel. It smells like summer, like Mango ice lollies, and somehow even at this time of year I cannot get enough of it. 

I was hoping this would be incredible, but it just isn't as good as the mango... but it does smell really nice, definitely one I would pick up again. 

This was such a strong scent. It smells like parma violets, and it was so reminiscent of childhood. I really enjoyed using this one. 

Balance Me Shower Creme 
This was so old they have actually stopped making it, really wasn't in love with the smell, but the formula was nice. I would definitely be up for trying something newer from them soon.  

I typically use their standard micellar water but opted to try this one for a change. I must admit it was nice, but it wasn't right for my routine. I like micellar waters as a second cleanse, so with the addition of oil it just left my skin feeling oily and slippy - rather than completely clean.

Setting spray is something I use without really thinking about - it is just the final step to the routine now. I really enjoyed using this one, although the scent is very artificial peach rather than natural.. but the performance is lovely, and I did enjoy using it. 

I don't think I have ever been so happy to finish up a concealer. I stupidly let someone else skin match me, and she matched to my skin rather than a shade lighter, so it just hasn't been nice trying to finish this - I squealed in joy when I realised I can go by the UD Naked one again. 

I have had this for WAY too long. It was my aim in September to finish it, and I did! I wasn't a huge fan of this one, I just found the scent didn't last as long as it should on me, I need something a bit longer lasting. 

This was the second one I had to finish. I told myself if I finished two I could buy myself a Jo Malone, and I finished it. This one was much easier to finish though - the scent is stunning, perfect for light everyday use. I will probably repurchase this one for summer.

Without a little bit of doubt this is my favourite deodorant now, I haven't used anything else in over two years. There is just no way of stinky sweating through this stuff. It's reliable. 

I am probably gonna get hate for saying this but I don't understand the hype around this, from trying this i'm beginning to think the bigger YouTubers only like it because of Ruth, I just didn't enjoy it - at all. Batiste is better. 

I loved using these so much, they just help to add a little luxe into your shower. Not having a shower seriously sucks sometimes, especially missing out on bath bombs - so these are such a good compromise.

I'm not even ashamed that this isn't even all of them.  I will admit I have a problem, especially with the winter scented candles. I swear I have 6 home bargains gingerbread candles, and I would happily burn them and pumpkin ones ALL year. Gimme the candles.

Have you burned more candles this time of year? What items have you finished up? Let me know in the comments below! :)
