September Empties


I didn't expect to be able to do an empties post this month, but as is the way, quite a few things ran out all in the past week! Here's what I emptied in September!

Soap and Glory Clean on Me Shower Gel 500ml - £5.50
This came in a set with other S&G products, bought as a present for one Christmas or birthday. It's taken me absolutely AGES to use up! But I absolutely love it, it's definitely a favourite! It smells lovely and the formula is really thick and creamy. It contains built in body lotion, leaving my skin nice and smooth after use. 
Purchase myself? Yes I will - once I've got through all The Body Shop shower gels stocked in the bathroom cupboard!!

The Body Shop Wild Cherry Body Butter 50ml - £2.00
I have soooo many body butters to get through as well as the shower gels from The Body Shop. This was given to me from a friend. The scent is strong and sweet - you can smell it for ages after use. The formula is thick and indeed very buttery! But not at all greasy. It absorbs quickly and leaves your skin hydrated and soft.
Purchase myself? No - I love fruity smells but it's not my favourite, I think there's nicer ones available.

Tesco Smooth Conditioner in Coconut 750ml - £0.88
I mentioned this product in my Beauty Cheat Sheet: Shaving post. I use this to shave my legs instead of buying shaving foam by Gilette or Veet. It's much better value for the size of the product and lasts for a long time.
Re-purchase? Yes I already have, but I've gone for the Jojoba & Basalm version instead.

Lush Fresh Face Mask Samples - Catastrophe Cosmetic and BB Seaweed - FREE
After not getting on with Cosmetic Warrior, a lovely sales assistant in my local Lush offered me these two samples to try to see how I got on with them. My personal favourite of the two is BB Seaweed - it left my combination skin feeling and looking amazing! 
Purchase full size? Yes I will be purchasing BB Seaweed for definite!

Jane Iredale PurePressed Blush in Parfait - £17.85 (online price)
This blusher is a pure mineral blusher, which means it doesn't contain oils, talc, dyes or fragrance and so is perfect for my spot prone skin. It's a shame it's empty as the colour is lovely, a light yet dusky pink, suited for pale skins. 
Re-purchase? Yes it's on order! I actually was going to go for a cheaper pressed mineral blusher by Youngblood Cosmetics from an online discount site. But their system somehow cancelled my order (I found this out by emailing them 7 days later after getting my order confirmation) and I wasn't prepared to re-order and wait for it to arrive. So I went back to what I know and love, albeit spending more money than I was going to.

What have you used up this month? Do you use any of the products above?

  3. I have used the cherry body butter, but agree, there's much nicer scents in that range. I adore Mango in the fruit scents, and coconut!
    I also use conditioner when shaving...makes it so much smoother!
    I haven't used anything up this month...so bad!

      I expect there'll be months I never use up anything too, at least it'll be cheaper :-) xx

      This isn't drying at all, I think the body lotion in it must help. Would recommend trying it xx
