August Empties


I've never done an empties post before, basically because I've never had enough empties to justify a post! Here's what I used up this month and whether I will re-purchase:

Nivea Double Effect 48H Anti-perspirant Deodrant 150ml - £2.00
I flit between deodrants depending on what's on special offer, but I find myself buying this one the most. It has a nice smell (not too powdery!) and just works!
Re-purchase? Probably!

Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser 250ml - £19.70 (online price)
I've been using this cleanser for years and I love it. It's not cheap but lasts for ages! It's recommended for oily skin and makes it feel squeaky clean without being drying. It contains ingredients such as cucumber, menthol and sage to soothe and revitalise.
Re-purchase? Yes I already have!

Lush Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask 75g - £5.95
I love the fact that this contains lots of natural ingredients to help banish breakouts, such as honey, eggs and garlic. However it made some areas of my face a little dry, so I'm not sure if it's quite the right mask for me. Full review here.
Re-purchase? I will definitely buy another Lush face mask - but will ask for advice this time before buying. So... maybe.

Girlz Only Dry Shampoo in Party Nights 150ml - £1.50
I've been using this instead of Batiste and find it works just as well, plus it's cheaper! This one has a subtle fruity fragrance and leaves no white, powdery residue. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes - I've already bought Dawn til Dusk, which has a citrus fragrance.

Dermalogica Active Moist 50ml - £22.25 (online price)
This moisturiser is oil free and keeps my skin nicely hydrated. It's really lightweight and doesn't feel at all heavy or greasy. 
Re-purchase? Yes I already have!

Dermalogica Skin Prep Scrub 22ml - worth roughly £5.73 (only sold as part of a kit)
This scrub contains natural corn cob meal and is meant to de-clog, polish and soothe the skin. I agree with the first two... However recently it's started to feel a little harsh on my skin, so I've decided to try something else and have ordered Vichy Purete Thermale Detoxifying Exfoliating Cream to try instead!
Re-purchase? No.

Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Daily Maintenance Shampoo 200ml - £2.09  
I love this stuff! It's a purple shampoo that I use to target the highlighted blonde tones in my hair. It definitely helps to keep the colour for longer, whilst keeping it soft and healthy! I also use the matching conditioner.
Re-purchase? Yes.

Witch Anti-Blemish Liquid Concealer in Light - £6.99
I use this oil free concealer on my spots, as I love the fact that it treats and conceals at the same time! It provides really good coverage and can also be used on dark circles. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes - but it's out of stock in Boots at the moment, so I'll have to wait!

What have you used up this month?

  6. Glad I saw this, I've been interested in the Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser lately as I seem to have suddenly become obsessed with all things clay, having not used a clay mask in a good few years. I'd never actually heard of a clay-based cleanser before so I'm really intrigued.
