So November is over already! We're hurtling towards Christmas! Here's my November empties.

Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask* - mini pot. I was so disappointed with this mask! It has been on my wish list forever so I was dead chuffed to get it in my last Look Fantastic beauty box. I usually love a mud mask but this was so strongly scented and felt really harsh. It was also shimmery which I think will be the mica in it, which doesn't really have a purpose for your skin. Definitely won't be buying this again.

Olaplex Hair Perfector No3 - The hype is real with this one! It really does leave hair stronger and in much better condition. Definitely will repurchase this. My only small gripe is that it has to be applied onto wet hair. I know it's not a bit deal but it takes ages to dampen my hair as it's very thick.

Elemis Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream Oil* - I absolutely adore this night cream! It's a lovely rich cream without being heavy. It really nourishes skin and you wake up the next day looking refreshed. It smells gorgeous too - like lavender, which is great to help you relax before bed. I'll definitely re-purchase this at some point.

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Eye Recovery cream* - I've loved this eye cream. I used it as a PM cream as it contains retinol. It really helps smooth out my under eye area and keep those wrinkles at bay! I'd buy this full sized. 

The Body Shop Coconut Shower Cream - I received this as a present last Christmas. It was part of a set. I adore anything coconut and this was nice and creamy and lathered up well. It left my skin feeling pretty soft after too. 

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye* - I got this mini pot as part of a GWP. It's lasted ages! It's a gel consistency, very smoothing. You can really feel the silicone in it. I didn't see any particular results from this so wouldn't buy full sized. It has been reformulated since though so maybe the new version would be better.

NIOD Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate - This isn't an empty but it's passed it's 6 month expiry period. I had good results with this, it hydrated my under eye are well and did improve my dark circles a bit. I won't repurchase though as I wasn't particularly keen on the thin, watery consistency of it. 

NIOD Survival 30 - again not empty but passed it's 6 month expiry. I have mixed feelings about this SPF. It gives great protection but I just didn't love it. The consistency is silky and leaves a nice finish. It's not heavy at all. I hated the dropper bottle applicator - it was so messy as the product starts to dry and thicken around the opening. They have changed this since to a pump. I'll not repurchase. 

Bluesky Soak Off Gel Top Coat - I do my own UV gel nail polish at home, having bought a kit a couple of years ago. I've tried loads of different brands and the one I always go back to is Bluesky. They're cheap, readily available and are great quality. This is the final step top coat so I go through these fairly quickly, especially as my Mum and Gran are using my kit too! Luckily these cost £6.50 each and can usually be found on a 3 for 2 offer on eBay.

A.Florence Skincare Super Serum - I love this serum, it's an amazing emulsion texture so it's really hydrating. It's packed with loads of amazing ingredients like Vitamin C 10% and CoQ10+. It's packed full of antioxidants too. This was the original formula, it's actually been improved since! I've got a bottle of the new version to try!

A.Florence Intense Night Repair Serum - Again this was the old version of this serum, A.Florence are always striving to improve their formula's, which I love! This gorgeous oil serum contains encapsulated retinol (so it stays potent for longer) and loads of other amazing anti-aging and nourishing ingredients. This version had 0.2% Retinol, the updated version has 0.3. This masks it a perfect starter retinol or one that is comfortably usable every day. I've just bought a new full sized bottle of this in the Black Friday sale (this is the travel sized).

And that's this months empties! Thanks for reading.
