I got through loads of products last month! I don’t really know why some months I use a lot and some months it seems I don’t very much at all, I’m sure my daily routine doesn’t change that much. Here are my September Empties.
♥ Antipodes Divine Face Oil – One of my most favourite face oils ever, I had another bottle of this lined up ready to use! It’s run out a lot quicker than expected – I found out that my fiancé has been putting it on my stepson’s dodgy skin (he has an inflamed bit around his mouth from thumb sucking). Annoying! I will hide my new bottle!
♥ Neal’s Yard Remedies Power Berry Daily Moisture – This was a free gift with a magazine; by the time I finished the tube I’d decided I didn’t like it – too runny and I don’t like the smell. It’s a shame, I usually love NYR products.
♥ Bluemandarines Skinlife Energetic Cellular Cream – I loved this moisturiser, it came in a Birchbox. After I started using it my skin really perked up but I started using La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo at the exact same time so who knows which product was really doing the work! I have some Birchbox points to use up and I am kind of tempted to get a jar of this…
♥ Natio Renew Radiance Foam Cleanser – Another Birchbox sample. I used this as my AM cleanser in my morning shower. It feels really rich and luxurious, a lovely morning treat for my skin.
♥ Blanc Cachemire Protecting Day Cream – This was also a Birchbox sample but unfortunately just felt too heavy for my skin.
♥ Carole Franck Fluide Fraicheur – Yep, another Birchbox moisturiser sample! I love this, it was just the right consistency and has the most gorgeous light, floral scent.
♥ Geo Organics Atlantic Sea Salt for Bathing – I got this in a “Smile Exchange” I did recently on one of my parenting groups. This salt just dissolves in the bath water; it doesn’t have any exciting smells or colours but it leaves your skin feeling cleansed, soothed and soft.
♥ Soap & Glory Foam Call Body Wash – Oh look, another giant Soap & Glory product. I feel like my Soap & Glory stash is never going to end. I was sick of this by the time it ran out!
♥ Aussie Miracle Shine Conditioner – Aussie is a brand I often come back to using, and I’ve been giving them a go again recently. I love the “Aussie” scent, you know the sort of bubblegum scent, and the Miracle Shine range has left my hair looking and feeling fabulous.
♥ Nivea Good-Bye Cellulite 10-Day Serum – I thought I was seeing results using this and then I thought, who am I kidding?! Diet and exercise people, diet and exercise.
♥ Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Body Wash – I got this in a Birchbox, I love Molton Brown products and the Ylang-Ylang range is so gorgeous. Love!
♥ Aromatherapy Associates Revive Bath & Shower Oil – I have no idea when I got this, I just found it in my stash so decided to use it. It contains Pink Grapefruit, Rosemary, Juniper Berry, Pine, Coconut Oil to detox, invigorate and energise body and mind. It smells amazing, but then so does everything from Aromatherapy Associates!
♥ La Roche-Posay Redermic R – This came from What’s In My Handbag and is a retinol-based treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and age spots. I didn’t really notice anything amazing happening to my skin, I guess I’m just not old enough yet! ;)
♥ RMK Cleansing Balm – This rose-scented balm came from Birchbox and is a pleasant cleanser to use due to its lovely scent but I’ve used many other more effective cleansers.
♥ Soap & Glory Dr Spot – It’s not empty, but it doesn’t work so into the bin it goes.
♥ Simple Soothing Facial Toner – I’m trying to be good and include a toner in my skincare regime, so started by using this one from Simple. I had received it at Christmas. It’s nothing to write home about but it’s very gentle.
♥ Inner Me Lustrous Locks Vitamin Complex – Okay, so I was never going to see amazing results with only 2 weeks worth of vitamins, but I thought I would at least see the condition of my nails improve. Nope, my nails got flaky and started peeling. So I’ve switched back to a normal multi-vitamin.
♥ Collection Illuminating Touch Brightening Concealer – I’m using this as a high street alternative to my beloved YSL Touche Eclat, which I also used up, as I don’t have funds for such luxuries on a daily basis. It does the job well enough!
