September Empties

It's empties time again. I've always loved empties posts, it's great to see what people have used up.

If you follow me on Instagram you might know that I sorted through my skin care this month. I've organised it so that I know exactly what I've got, which has been great. I decluttered a few things and tossed out products that were old or nearly empty.

Having everything sorted has made it so much easier. Now when I run out of something I can just get another one instead of hunting through my stash, not finding what I need so buying a new product. I've also added a few more steps into my skincare routine and my skin is loving it.

If you have a largeish skin care collection I highly recommend sorting it out so you know exactly what you've got. I also recommend not posting about it on Instagram because you'll get lots of negative and judgemental comments.

Now, on to the empties.

Co Lab Dry Shampoo
It's been a huge revelation to me that dry shampoo no longer leaves an awful white cast. I've avoided them for years because of this, but now I don't have to. I like the Co Lab dry shampoos, they come in a nice range of different fragrances and the can lasts for ages.

No Pong Deodorant
If you're after a bicarb free natural deodorant then No Pong is worth a try. They've just released a new fragrance which I'd really like to try. I love how soft and creamy this is, it's very soothing on my pits. The only thing I don't like is that it stains my shirts. The stains come out but only after soaking my top for two days.

Perfect Potion Hand Sanitiser
Now that hand sanitiser is a daily necessity, I've been on the hunt for ones that don't irritate or dry out my hands. This one is a winner. It smells lovely, doesn't cause rashes and doesn't give me lizard hands. 

The Body Shop Chocomania Beautifying Oil
Who remembers when TBS had their chocolate collection? It was so good, I wish they'd bring it back. That was years ago and I've been hoarding this gorgeous oil ever since. 
It was way too old to use on my face so I used it as a shower oil.

Andalou Naturals Instant Brightening Face Mask
I have a full size of this mask, it's lovely. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin but leaves it feeling smooth and looking brighter. 

Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub
I love Soap and Glory scrubs but this one isn't a favourite, it's just not scrubby enough for me. 

Naked Bean Coffee Body Scrub
Now this scrub is scrubby enough for me, it's lovely. You really can't go wrong with coffee scrubs.

Avene Day Protector Tinted BB Cream
I really liked this and will probably buy a full size next time it's on sale at Priceline. It gives good medium coverage and didn't irritate my eyes.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask
Hmmm. I'm still on the fence about Glow Recipe. Their products are nice but over priced and over hyped. 
Whilst I like the sleeping mask I don't think it's amazing. It gives good hydration and I enjoy using it but I probably wouldn't repurchase. 

Dermalogica Age Smart Biolumin C Serum
I got three uses out of this cute little bottle which isn't enough to form an opinion.

L'Occitane Immortelle Night Serum
I'm now on to my second bottle of Immortelle. I find it's great for hydrating and works well under other products. I don't think it's something I'd be rushing out to buy as there are plenty of cheaper hydrating serums available.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
I just don't get the hype. There's now a different formula of ANR so I'd be interested to see if it's any better. This formula did nothing for me.

The Inkey List Collagen Booster
After using a whole bottle of collagen booster I can say that it didn't make any difference to my skin condition. I finished it two weeks ago and there's been no change in my skin so clearly it did nothing. 

Glow Recipe Pineapple C Bright Serum
I used this for a week and enjoyed it. It didn't irritate my skin and played well with my other products. 

Glow Recipe Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream
If you're after a yummy smelling, light moisturiser this is for you. I can see it being my go to summer moisturiser. Being light it absorbs quickly and works well under sunscreen. Plus, it looks pretty. 

Ren Keep Young and Bright Eye Cream
Whist the tube is a decent size, there was only enough product for two uses, so I'm not sure why I bothered including this in my list as I have nothing to say about it. 

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Marine Boosting Mist
I really liked this and will probably buy a full size bottle when I've got through the ones I currently have. It's gentle on my skin and gives a good boost of hydration. 

Dearest Lips Lip Scrub
I love every single Dearest Lips product and the lip scrub is no exception. It's super scrubby and tastes great. Being compostible is an added bonus.

Isn't this a great pile of tosses!

Most of them are nearly empty and expired. I have no idea why I didn't finish them before moving on to something new. 

The Frank Body face spray and mask, Kmart Coffee mask, Blessed by Nature night cream and Sephora face mask all irritated my skin. I held on to them and tried them several times but they just don't work for me so there's no point holding on to them. 

Did you finish many products this month?
