October (and a bit) empties

I get a real sense of achievement writing these posts....the empties, the products I have conquered, and here they are in all their glory. As normal its mainly skin care, and rather weighted towards Clarins opps.

So clockwise from right.

Clarins toning lotion for normal to dry skin, lovely alcohol free toner with a really refreshing smell. I really liked this at the time but to be honest Liz Earl skin tonic has taken over as my favourite so I probably won't re-buy.

Benefit Powderazzi... WOW I only got this TWO YEARS AGO! Its lasted me a lifetime but has finally come to an end. This limited edition Christmas set contained Hoola, Dallas and Coralista. I'd really recommend these sets for anyone wanting to try some new colours, the 2011 set contains Hoola, coralista and bella bamba and is way cheaper than full sized at £19.50

Benefit Speed brow, setting gel for eyebrows. OK product that did what it said but I thought it was rather small for £12 and cheaper brands do a similar thing. I do like however that it was slightly coloured as the clear gels get really scabby looking when they get brow colour mixed in.

Clarins Gentle foaming cleanser, really good cleanser for getting all my makeup off with only one wash. I used mine with a muslin cloth and water. I did find this a little striping on my dry skin and would be better for a combination skin. I also would have preferred to be able to use it on my eyes. Nothing will compare to cleanse and polish, I don't know why I even bother!

and finally Clarins Multi-active day cream. I always use anti ageing even though I'm only in my early 20's and I actually didn't find this cream was 'enough'. Come early afternoon my skin needed some extra moisture and looked dehydrated especially on drier areas, like my forehead. Would suit someone my age but with a slightly more oily skin, or no dehydration lines.

Thats all I managed this month folks but I'm currently trying a 'project 10 pan' style challenge with some makeup products so hopefully November will bring a truck full of empties.

Any good recommendations of great products you've finished this month?
