october empties

Hi guys,

This month seems to have whizzed by and my favourite time of the month has arrived. The time when I get to share my empties with you and finally throw them out!

1. Soap and Glory Heel Genius Foot Cream
I have to say this I do like this foot cream and it has been helping to keep my feet free of cracked skin. It's blue in colour and has a herbal scent probably because it contains menthol. However the ingredients list is so long it almost fill sup the whole back side of the tube so I'm looking forward to finding a chemical free alternative!
Cruelty-Free: Yes
Repurchase: No 

2. Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover
This is my holy grail makeup remover, so I am rather sad to see it finished. It is an oil based makeup remover so does leave a bit of an oily residue.
Cruelty-Free: No
Repurchase: No

3. The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Body Scrub
The body shop body scrubs are some of my favourites. My skin verges towards the dry side so I like that they are super moisturising. They leave an oily residue on the skin so if you don't like that then I would probably pick something else. I have written a full review if you want more information.
Cruelty-Free: Yes (Parent Company is Loreal who do test on animals) 
Repurchase: No

4. The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Shower Gel
I really hate the scent of this shower gel, it's too washing up liquid and artificial smelling for my liking. I'm so glad to have finished it! You can read my full review here.
Cruelty-Free: Yes (Parent Company is Loreal who do test on animals) 
Repurchase: No

5. Sukin Natural Deodorant
This is the first chemical-free deodorant I've tried and I do like it, My favourite thing has to be the scent it smells absolutely amazing. Furthermore it is free of a whole host of nasties and is suitable for vegans. You can see full product information and read my full review here. I would repurchase this deodorant however I want to see what else is out there in the chemical-free market.
Cruelty-Free: Yes 
Repurchase: Yes

6. Elf Candy Shop Lipgloss in Candy Fix
The packaging of this lipgloss is adorable. To me I would say this is more of a lipbalm with a tint as apose to a lipgloss. I thought the lipgloss was okay, I do have four other flavours I need to finish up, because apparently at the time only buying one of something wasn't sufficient.
Cruelty-Free: Yes 
Repurchase: No

7.-10. Perfume Samples
Last but not least I have used up four perfume samples this month, with the added bonus that I do not have any further perfume samples left so I am happy about that. The four scents I used up were D&G 10, Prada Milano, The Body Shop Love Etc and Gucci Guilty, I do remember liking all of them.

Let's get into the count!
