Another month gone by and another load of empties for me to talk about! Starting off this month is...

Verso Hydrating Serum with Niacinamide* - sample. This is a nice light serum that definitely left my skin looking plumped and hydrated. I wouldn't buy this however just because I prefer A.Florence Hydration Booster serum instead.


Corsx Acne Pimple Master Patch* - these are fabulous little things! You stick one on a spot and it draws out all the yucky stuff overnight! Gross but amazing. They flatten spots really well. I like to use these on alternate nights with Kate Somerville Eradikate treatment. Eradikate is a bit strong to use every night so these help balance it out! I've already re-purchased them.


ReVive Intensite Complete Eye Serum - This little bottle has lasted me ages! I got it in March as part of a Space NK GWP. It's a lovely light serum, easily absorbed and pretty illuminating. As lovely as it is, I won't be repurchasing as it's out of my price range at £220!!


Murad AHA / BHA Exfoliating Cleanser* - This is such a fab cleanser. It feels slightly gritty but is incredibly fine. I'd say it's got a decent amount of acids in it as skin feels very soft and smooth after use. I've already got another tube the same size that came free with a magazine, which I bought especially to get the cleanser. 



Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask - I got this mini pot in the Caroline Hirons x Space NK beauty box collaboration. It was my first Tata Harper product! I got two uses out of the pot. The first use left me underwhelmed. I don't think I applied enough product. I was being stingy as it's a small pot. Whereas the second use, I slathered it all on. Loved it!! It left my skin super soft and smooth. Will I buy full sized? Maybe. As much as I loved it, I think there's other comparable masks for a cheaper price. But we'll see. It was lovely!




Malin + Goetz Vitamin b5 Body Moisturiser - Didn't like this. It had a funny musty scent and was slightly separated in the packet. It left my skin soft though.


Boots Ingredients Sheet Face Mask Safflower & Peony* - I've had this sat in my stash for ages, so thought I'd best use it up. Only had it on a couple of minutes before it started to sting my eye area! Apart from that it was nice enough. Wouldn't buy again though. 



Clark's Botanicals Retinol Rescue Overnight Cream - sample. I've had a sample of this cream before and absolutely adore it. It has the most amazing Jasmine scent that I could sniff all day! It's a lovely cream, rich but light. I'll definitely buy it at some point!


Bliss That's Incredi-peel Glycolic Resurfacing pad and Triple Oxygen Energising Vitamin C Day cream - These were part of a triple set (I've still got the face mask to finish). The acid pad was ok, fairly strong but felt a bit greasy / oily. I wasn't impressed with the cream, it had a funny scent and wasn't anything special.


Benefit Roller Lash mascara - I love this mascara and would buy again. It's one of the few mascaras that doesn't smudge or flake on me. It lengthens, thickens and curls lashes brilliantly. I'm only not re-purchasing straight away as I've got a Benefit They're Real mascara (which I also love) to use instead. 


Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen serum* - sample. I opened this as I got a mini bottle of the same serum in a recent GWP. I loved the sound of it and was very excited to try it. Sadly I hated it! It's a gel texture but strangely thick and heavy. It felt smothering on my skin. It also had a very strong fragrance, not unpleasant but far to strong for my liking. Definitely won't be opening the mini bottle! One to sell on eBay!


Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex - sample. I absolutely loved this eye cream! It was a lovely rich texture that absorbed well. It has a tell Retinol scent which I always think is a good sign! This sample lasted two weeks with me using it most nights so I gave it a good test. So would I buy it? Yes at some point once I use up some other open eye creams. Or I'll see if I can get another couple of samples! I bought this as part of the Pick n Mix Samples offer at Feel Unique. If you've not heard of it before, it's fab! You get to pick 5 samples a month from a large selection. You only pay £3.95 postage which you then get sent as a voucher to use that month at Feel Unique (not on Pick n Mix). It's a great way to test out new products and some of the samples are decent sized. 


Sjo Happy Honey Mask - sample pot. The absolute babe @beyondthedressingtable aka Michelle kindly sent me a mini pot of this wonderful mask because she knew how much I wanted to try it. How lovely, right?! If you don't already, give her a follow! Well all the hype surrounding this mask is definitely warranted. It's a lovely thick almost sticky paste that is really cooling when applied. It's best applied with a brush due to the consistency. You do get a spatula brush with a full sized pot which is great! It's got little gritty pieces in it which gently exfoliate skin when you rinse the mask off. I left it on for about 15-20 minutes. After rinsing my skin looks calmed and hydrated. I'll be buying a full sized pot of this in the future. 


Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance mascara* - This is one of my favourite mascaras. I've been bought it by my mother in law, as part of a Christmas set the last two years. It's really good - lengthens, separates, curls and adds volume. No flaking either until the end, then I know it's time for the bin as it's dried out too much! I'll definitely buy this in the future or hopefully get it for Christmas again! lol


Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil - I got this as part of a GWP a while ago. It's not something I would have usually bought to be honest with it being an oil. I've found them to be too heavy and make my hair look lank. Luckily this one was different! It smells lovely (rose) and really helped tame the frizz of my hair without making it look greasy. Really nice!


And that's it for this months empties! Did you spot any favourites?
