September Empties!

Another month nearly gone and I have another set of empties to share with you today. I honestly didn't think I had used that much up this month but I think i've done pretty good. I've managed to use a good few skincare products up which is a defiant goal for me at the moment since i've gone too many things open or on the go. 
Starting with skincare I have the Avene Gentle Cleansing Gel, this has lasted me so long but it is a really great basic cleanser if you have sensitive skin as it leaves the skin feeling clean but not tight. I would get this again in the future, Next is the La Roche Posay Serozinc, this is a really nice toner if your skin can get a bit irritated as it is very soothing. This isn't the easiest to get hold of in the UK but I would purchase it again. Another La Roche Posay product the Effaclar K, this is a great moisturiser for oily skin and it also help to get rid of any breakouts. I would purchase this again if my skin was breaking out. I also finished the La Roche Posay Efflaclar Mat which is one of my favourite day moisturiser as it mattifies the skin yet keeps it hydrated, I will definitely repurchase this in the future. I used up two samples the first being the Pai Kukai and Jojoba Bead Exfoliator, I really loved this product so much so i've already bought the full size, it is the best gentle scrub i've found. The other being the Elemental Herbology Facial Detox Purifying Facial Mask, this is a lovely clay makes which really makes your skin feel clean and clear. I would purchase the full size although I have a few other clay masks to use up at the moment. 
The last two skincare bits are the Blistex Intensive Moisturiser which is a really intensive lip balm. I do like the product even though it does make your lips white, I would get this again but I need to use up some more lip balms first. The other being Indeed Labs Pepta-Bright, I love this stuff as it really has improved the appearance of my skin and helped with scarring, i'm already onto my next tube. 
I've used up a few bits from The Body Shop this month. The first being the Strawberry Shower Gel. I love this stuff, it smells lovely and is very rich so I find it lasts a lot longer than other shower gels, I would buy this again. I used up two body butters, the first being the Mango scent which is okay but definitely not my favourite one they do, I found it to be a tad greasy so I wouldn't purchase this again. The other being the Sweet Lemon scent which smelt lovely and was hydrating however they've since discontinued this scent which is a shame. 
I finished the Naked Coco De Mer Bath Foam, this has a lovely scent that was very relaxing, I would get this again if it was on offer. I also finished the Sally Hansen Moisturising Polish Remover, this did a pretty good job at removing nail polish. I don't really have a preference to nail polish removers but I would get this one again.
I finished two hair masks, the first being the Boots Coconut & Almond Intensive Hair Mask, i've had this for a while and it is a really good cheap mask that does the job and smells lovely. I would get this again if I was on a budget. The other being the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor, this was an okay mask but for me it didn't do anything special so I wouldn't purchase it again.
I've used up two makeup bits this month, the first being the Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Mascara, I like the formula of this although it did seem to go gloopy quickly. The main thing I don't like about this is brush is too big that I always smudge it on my eyelid. For that reason I wouldn't repurchase it. Finally i've finished the Bourjous Healthy Mix Concealer, this is one of my favourite concealers because you can use it any where on the face and it gives good coverage and lasts all day. I've already repurchase this. 

So that's this months empties, i'm glad to be working my way through some skincare products so I can make room for new things to try! What beauty products have you used up this month?



  1. Woa, I used so many of the same products as you! I love that Spoil Me Naked, mmm x

  2. I think blistex is an amazing product. Always stops my lips form chapping during witer. I am using Strawberry Body Shop shower gel now and found that it really dries my skin out :( x

  3. Wow!!! You have tried great products here. i have heard so much about some of these products and many really have liked them especially the la roche products.

  4. I really want to try those Revlon lip products they sound fab!
