“November 2017 Empties”


Yes! It’s that time of the month again when you see monthly recaps. November is going fast fast fast! So I’ll start my monthly recap with an Empties post because honestly you guys, I am feeling so proud of myself because I’m actually using up all of these products which I usually don’t do.

Let’s begin…

•Garnier Micellar Water•

This bottle lasted me forever! I really love how gentle this feels to the skin while effectively removing any traces of makeup on my skin.

Repurchase: Already did!

•Josie Maran’s 100% Pure Argan Oil•

I think I already raved too much about this product on the review I shared a few weeks ago about this oil (Read Here) so I won’t go in too much details about it but the bottom line is- I am in love!

Repurchase: Already did. It’ll be a part of my November Sephora Haul which will be up really soon!

•La Roche Posay Lipikar Xerand Hand Repair Cream•

You’ve also seen this in my October 2017 Empties and this particular one is my last and final bottle. This is the cream that I keep on my desk and it has lasted me a while since I started using this around summer. Again, I love that this doesn’t leave any greasiness in my hands and it did an amazing job on moisturizing my skin.

I use hand cream a lot especially during the colder season so you’ll probably see hand cream empties quite a lot.

Repurchase: Maybe. My mom gave me 3 or 4 bottles of this and as much as it’s a good hand cream I still want to try other brands.

Nip+Fab Skin Glycolic Cleansing Fix•

This is another product that I raved so much about as you might’ve already seen in my October 2017 Favorites. This is such an effective cleanser which also helped to make my skin softer and with the price, you can never go wrong.

Repurchase: Yes! It has always been out of stock in my local drugstore though so I had to buy another cleanser from Pixi vut hopefully they’ll restock soon because I really like this one.

•NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer•

This is by far one od my favorite drugstore concealer. The coverage is perfect and it blends so well with ny foundation. This is much perfect for my under eye which really helped to brighten it. It’s also affordable so it’s a plus!

Repurchase: Already did!

•Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask•

Did I already mention how much I love this hair mask? Yes! Yes! Yes! As I mentioned on my review this is probably the only hair mask that helped to heal and calm my hair and in all honesty, since I started using this mask, I didn’t find it necessary to use a hair straightener any more. This is my newest holy grail product for my hair.

Repurchase: Already did!

•Quo Back To Basics Eyeshadow Palette•

This palette is not an actual empty but since I already have it for a while, it has to go since I’m noticing a lot of fall out making it super difficult to blend. When I first purchased this palette, I was impressed with how pigmented the shadows were so this became my go to palette. The colors are amazing and are easy to blend and match with each other. The formula has now changed so it’s unfortunately going to the bin as much as I want to use it up.

Repurchase: Yes if ever I see it again because it seems that Quo already discontinued this palette since I haven’t seen it in my local drugstore for a while.


These are a few of my Sephora samples and they’re all hair products from Bumble and Bumble. There is really nothing special about the Shampoo and Conditioner because they work exactly like my regular drugstore shampoo and conditioner. I’m also not a big fan of the scent even though it doesn’t really linger much. Thy styling oil is also okay. It’s a nice quick fix to manage my hair but it doesn’t really last for a while. I have to constantly apply it the whole day which is why I was able to finish the vials in just a few days. I’m impressed though that it didn’t make my hair look oily.

Repurchase: No.

And that’s my November Empties! I’m really loving this series because it’s encouraging me to use up all products that I’ve beeb buying for the past few months now. Honestly, this haven’t happened in a while since I tend to jump from one product to another because I get bored using the same products over and over. I think it’s the Sagittarius in me, I’m impatient and easily bored. LOL.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Till next time.

Much love,

    I just recently purchased a supersize bottle of argan oil. How do you use it? I use it to lock in all of my serums at night.

    I’ve gone through so many bottles of micellar water. I still love it and it’s just so easy to use.
