Products I Used Up | September 2014

Beauty Empties - September

It's my favourite time of the month, you know the drill by now so let's dive into this months empties.

Radox Spa Sooth Bath Soak* link
The regular appearance of Radox once again. As always Radox products smell great and are the perfect accessory for bath time. I'd definitely repurchase this lovely scent although this month I have treated myself to one or two new bath time products which I'll share with you soon.

Liz Earle Skin Tonic link
This little bottle is a slight cheat as I decanted it for my trip to Vegas last month but it was used in it's entirety (and has been purchased full size as you'll see in a forthcoming post) and the perfect companion for the long haul flight.

Sally Hansen Polish Remover link
I've been using Sally Hansen polish removers for years and it feels like they last forever - especially as I'm sure this is the first time one has appeared in my empties post. This is swift to remove polish from my nails without staining my fingers. Another item I'd repurchase when the time comes (I picked up a remover in Sephora as I needed one whilst away).

Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Serum* link
I still feel like I'm finding my feet with serums and working out what is right and/or good for my skin. I find it hard to review skincare beyond how it feels on the skin because is it one step or all of them combined that help. That aside my skin has been in a pretty good place of late and one must assume that Perricone MD's Vitamin C Ester Serum has played a part. Firstly this is a pretty pricey serum although I do feel like I have been using this for a number of months and a little goes a long way. Using the Vitamin C Ester Serum should make you skin appear brighter and more radiant and I do notice a difference if I've skipped the serum stage of skincare during lazy nights that skin is definitely looking a little lacklustre.

It is also a helping hand for lip lines which as a smoker is something I should be aware of and thus far I seem to be doing well avoiding especially as a frequent red lip wearer it would certainly be prevalent. The most overwhelming thing I remember about this serum is the scent which I did not find pleasant and would be my only other concern (apart from price and the difficulty tracking it down to even link to this post) to repurchasing.

No 7 Make Up Brush Cleanser link
This is a great brush cleanser which is affordable, always available on 3 for 2 and more importantly does the job it's supposed to. I don't think many of us enjoy the cleaning of brushes but this nifty product makes the weekly clean much less of a bind. I have a Sunday routine of tackling my make up brushes before the week ahead with this brush cleanser.

Garnier Perfect Blur Smoothing & Perfecting Primer link
This primer featured in my collection post which you can read here and having used the tube in it's entirety I still don't know whether I love or hate this product. Initially I wasn't a fan, persevered and liked it and towards the end I started to go off it again and just wanted to rid. As mentioned in my primer post this does have a somewhat greasy texture although this subsides once applied to the skin. Honestly I think compared to the Max Factor primer which I'm loving currently or Benefit's PoreFessional which was a saviour in the Vegas heat I don't think this would end up back in my possession.

Yes To Cucumber Facial Wipes link
I picked up these face wipes in Hawaii way back in April and they've sat hidden at the bottom of my skincare drawers until it was I thought the petite packet would come in handy for my trip to Vegas. They were handy to freshen up my face between day and night time make up applications and as face wipes go they didn't cause any dryness or discomfort. Would I repurchase, probably not as I prefer not to have the temptation to be lazy but if I were looking for something quick and easy for flights again they would be considered.

OSMO Deep Moisturising Conditioner* link
A whole month after the OSMO Shampoo made it's way into my empties the conditioner finally follows suit. Again I'll direct you to the review post on these products here but it was pleasant but not enjoyable enough that I'm rushing to buy again, especially as I'm having a reunited love affair with my John Frieda products of later.

As always don't forget to share or link me up to your empties posts, I do love the end/beginning of the month when all the empties and favourites are being shared.

  2. Just bought the Garnier 5 Second Blur (think it's called that), and like you, don't know if I love it or hate it. It doesn't help that the shade I bought isn't quite right. Love the Liz Earle skin tonic, very impressed with my first bottle of that which I'm using at the mo x

    1. I'm using the spritz version now and it's lovely, would've been perfect for the Summer!
