December empties...

Yea it took a while but hey, at least im doing it.

8 Empties!!! All empty!

I shall go clockwise from left.

First up: clinique rinse off eye makeup solvent

I had the sample size of this eyemakeup remover forever (well it felt like it) it stung my eyes after a bit and felt oily even after I washed my eyes. It did not remove all of my waterproof makeup but it did remove my non waterproof stuff. Biggest problem is if it does not remove my waterproof mascara then what is the point of using it! I expect to not have to use 2 makeup pads worth of eye makeup remover for one eye and not even have it all taken off. No thanks... Ive moved on a better one which I enjoy much more.

Did I use all of this: yes

Would I repurchase this: NO. Burned my eyes and didnt work well on removing all my waterproof mascara.

Second: Clinique liquid facial soap: mild

I also had a sample size of this to. I get alot of GWP samples as my mum never uses them and gives them to me. So you shall see a lot of clinique reviews/empties, Anyway this lasted me ages. Its an ok cleanser.  I  use a small squirt  but I find it doesnt foam or lather very well unless I use a fingernail amount of product, so lately ive been doing that as I wanna use this tube up. If you put a fingernail amount it works well and I feel like I have a nice clean face, not that stripped of moisture feeling but nice and clean. I actually dont mind this cleanser.

Did I use all of this: yes

Would I repurchase this: Probs not as I think ive got another 2 tubes to use up and I dont want to pay so much a cleanser I dont love.

Third: Clinique 7 day scrub cream:

Yet again another sample size that lasted forever. I do like this one though as the beads are less harsh than other scrubs and so tiny. In most scrubs the exfoliating beads/grains whatever are quite large like coarse sand but this scrub they are like third of the size. I like that as its less irritable on my skin. I dont think ive noticed a huge improvement in the removal of my dry skin flakes though... as I have dry patches around mouth, chin, edges of faces and I havent noticed much improvement... It also leaves a milky finish on skin after ive finished using it.

Did I use all of this: yes I did.

Would I repurchase this: No I doubt it as I dont notice a differece with my skin flaking and I dont want to pay $47 of something like that, plus Ive got another bit of another tube to go.

Fourth: The bodyshop mineral foundation spf 25 number 2:

I think I had the right colour and I used a kabuki brush with it, not the body shop one though. When the girl put it on it looked great (as it always does) but when I put it on it didnt look very covering and showed up all my dry spots and I have lots of that. I just found it didnt have great coverage and I like to have medium coverage and I even applied a heavier amount but alas. I also found that it didnt last that long. I swear my MAC has lasted me so much longer. It was quite sturdy but I didnt like how the writing just disappeared, Luckily on the bottom of the case it said what it was...

Did I use all of this: Majority except for a tiny bit as I couldnt get it out.

Would I repurchase this: No, as I didnt like the coverage I got and I dont want to fork out $40 for a foundation that doesnt last that long and doesnt give me good coverage.

Fifth: Clinique moisture surge:

I quite like this gel but I find it more refreshing than hydrating. I dont feel like it actually does anything for my skin and Ive applied it both as a mask and just as a gel and both ways it doesnt do much. It just feels refreshing but then I get the slight stinging feeling after a couple of minutes... sigh. My skin hates me.It even burns when I have sunscreen on for too long and I get sweaty... oh well. anyway its ok for people who dont have really dry sensitive skin, as lots of people rave about this. Not me though.
Did I use all of this: Yes

Would I repurchase this: no as I found it didnt do anything for my skin. Hydrate or moisturise, i think not.

Sixth: David Jones shea butter shower gel.

Sorry but I dont have a pic. Was from a gift set and was travel size. This smelt lovely and nutty and was really soapy and bubbley. It felt nice on the skin, but for me soap is fine. I dont use shower gels unless someone gives me them as I dont really care that much about smells that dont linger after i wash with them. eh.

Did i use all of this: yep and quickly, doesnt last long but then it was tinnnyyyyy.

Would I repurchase this: No, I dont particularly care about shower gels.

and the last two things are not even worth mentioning as they are so old I doubt they even exist. But they were: colose cosmetic system mild facial cleansing milk and clinique take the day off cleansing milk, both were cleansing milks and I hate cleansing milks as I never feel they cleanse me so those who both no thankyous for me.
