empties: november;

I always enjoy reading monthly empties posts, so I thought I'd write one of my own.  Now, I know November isn't quite over, but my schedule is fully booked for the next week or two, and I'm not going to use up anything else in the next two days, so here you go! Enjoy!

(1) Garnier Simple Essentials Toner (for sensitive skin):  Here's where I need to ask, what is the point of toner?  Don't get me wrong, I always use one, but only because I've been told I should.  I just don't know why.  I've used reasonably expensive toners, cheap toners... but to be honest it's all much of a muchness.  They don't really do anything.  Or do they?  Anyway, mini-rant aside, this toner is fragrance free (always a plus), was fairly inexpensive, and as far as I'm aware, it did the job.  I might repurchase this when I need more toner.

(2) Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs (Water Resistant) - Light Glow:  Everyone needs a bit of Sally in their life.  It's like foundation for your body!  I use fake tan quite a bit.  I prefer instant over developer, and I prefer Airbrush Legs over everything!  It's easy to apply (all of my mitts have disappeared so I'm currently using a fluffy sock), it smells nicer than any other tan I've used, and the colour isn't orange at all.  And it has great coverage, which is a huge plus for me and my freckles.  I'll definitely be buying this again within the next few days.

(3) Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter:  I'm assuming that at this stage that I don't need to explain my love for Soap & Glory again.  The Righteous Butter is my ultimate holy-grail item.  This body butter leaves my skin moisturised for days, isn't greasy, and it smells delish (fyi, it doesn't taste as good as it smells).  It's a bit pricey considering how often I buy it, but it's definitely worth the money.  I'm already partway through a new tub!

(4) Revlon Colorstay Foundation (110 Ivory):  I really like this foundation.  It's nice to find one that's actually as pale as my skin!  I buy the one for combination/oily skin, and it works a treat, keeping the oil at bay for hours.  It's an everyday essential, and I've already bought a new bottle.

(5) Natural Collection Pressed Powder (Cool):  This powder is one of the best I've ever used, and it  costs less than a fiver!  It gives some coverage as well as keeping my foundation in place for the day.  There's not much else to day.  As far as pressed powders go, it's a good 'un!  I've already hit pan on my 'new' one.

(6) No7 Beautiful Skin Eye Make-Up Remover:  This eye make-up remover is a godsend (insert choir of angels here).  Give the bottle a shake, pour some onto a cotton pad, and remove all your eyeshadow and eyeliner in one swipe!  Two swipes for mascara and eyebrows.  It's so gentle on the general eye area, which is always a bonus, and it left my skin feeling really soft and moisturised.  Truth be told, I only bought this because I had a money off voucher and it's so expensive (it costs over €10!!), but if I had money to burn, I would buy a hundred bottles!  I'm going to miss it.

(7) Kate by Kate Moss:  I am awful at describing scents, but according the internet, this is "a beautiful scent with subtle blends of lily of the valley, magnolia and roses"?  All I know is that it smells divine, I wore it almost everyday, and I will definitely be repurchasing this.

(8) Motilium:  An odd one, but this month I finished a pack of Motilium.  Available in chemists, these are tiny, magic pills that make nausea go away.  Seeing as I have the immune system of a small child and I catch every stomach bug that goes around, these are a lifesaver.  They're not a cure, but they certainly bring relief.  They also work wonders on hangovers.  I always keep Motilium in the house, so yes, I will be repurchasing these.

What products will you be repurchasing this month?  Thanks for reading!
