October Empties

I've decided to make a conscious effort to use up my sample-sized products, because they are smaller and I'll power through them quicker, meaning I can throw more empties out. I'm fast running out of storage space! Welcome to my October Empties.

TN Dickinson's WitchHazel
My all-time favourite toner, I've been using this product for years, to clean, tone and smooth my skin. I apply it liberally to a cotton ball then swipe my face. It can be used to remove face makeup, or tone skin after a shower, readying your face for moisuriser and makeup. This is especially good to use if I have broken out. I apply it before bed, and it seems to clear up my skin quicker than pimple creams do. At about $6 a bottle, this is a bargain buy.

Revlon Matte Powder Blush in Rose Rapture
This was a great every day blush, in a flattering shade. Upon opening the lid there's a black button you push which makes a mirror pop out the side. This was handy for checking my hair from different angles in the bathroom mirror. I won this product along with a bunch of other Revlon goodies, and won't purchase another, simply because I have many other blushers to use up first.

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
This was a pleasant, gentle cleansing gel. So glad I've been winning Dermalogica products lately, because I'm really impressed with the brand. Hope I win more!

Payot Gentle Scrubbing Cream
I quite liked this gorgeously-fragranced exfoliant. It was gentle and felt lovely to use. I've said before, but for fancy French brands, I love Payot so much more than the more-famous Guinot.

ASAP Gentle Cleansing Gel
This was a great little cleanser, although admittedly, I didn't get much out of this tiny sample. But it was my introduction to the ASAP brand, so I was excited to try it.

ASAP Daily Exfoliating Facial Scrub
This was quite possibly the harshest scrub I have ever used. The particles were huge and dense within the formulation. It hurt and after the first go, I decided to use the rest as a body scrub, so as to not lose 10 layers of face skin. OUCH!
