Mini-Review: October Empties

After the first month of empties, I decided to pay attention to my ever-exploding makeup stash and tried to clear the clutter from there. Turns out finishing makeup products to the last drop is harder than it seems!

October Empties

Boots Dry Shampoo

  • What is it? A cheap and effective dry shampoo. Retails for approximately AED 20 and extends a blow dry by a few days.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased.
  • First time or repeat? 3rd bottle I think.
  • Repurchase? For now no. It accumulates build up on the scalp so I’m testing out Kérastase’s new dry shampoo instead.

L’Oréal Total Repair Conditioner

  • What is it? The only conditioner I could find when I was out of my normal salon brand. Ended up using it as a leg conditioner to finally use up the bottle.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased.
  • First time or repeat? First time.
  • Repurchase? Never.

Philosophy BB Cream

  • What is it? A BB cream that has full-coverage and works well with oily skin and humidity.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased.
  • First time or repeat? First time.
  • Repurchase? Yes, but the formula is a bit dry for my skin during winters. Will wait until next summer to repurchase.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara

  • What is it? My HG mascara – the perfect quality and price between drugstore and department store mascara.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased.
  • First time or repeat? 3rd tube.
  • Repurchase? Yes, I wouldn’t toss this until the replacement had arrived.

Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer

  • What is it? An alternate to mascara, this is essentially a paint on mascara.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased last year in the US based on reviews by other bloggers.
  • First time or repeat? First time
  • Repurchase? This has been discontinue and I honestly used this twice before realizing this month it was dried out.

Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Gel

  • What is it? A spot treatment for acne with tea tree oil as an active ingredient.
  • How was this obtained? Purchased.
  • First time or repeat? First time
  • Repurchase? The concept is nice but I find undiluted tea tree oil or Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion make better spot treatments.

What is the last product you used up till the last drop? Is it harder for you to use up makeup?
