September Empties

23 comments
Hello Lovelies!

Can't believe how fast September has flown by, but it's October tomorrow so time for everyones monthly empties! As you can see I've used up quite a lot this month
 A lot of the products are favourites of mine that I would repurchase. I've added HG (Holy Grail) in brackets next to those produts so you can see which ones I keep going back to again and again!


Garnier Summer Body (HG) (Deep Sun-Kissed)
I love this product! It's a body moisturiser you can use daily that builds up a gradual natural looking tan. It smells fresh with a hint of citrus. I use this almost every day and it does not dry out my skin (which some products with fake tan in them can do)
Would repurchase? Yes, I already have 2 more bottles of this! I always stock up on this when it's on special offer at Boots, Sainsbury's or Superdrug.
 
Johnson's Baby Shampoo (HG)
I use this to clean my make up brushes. You can read my post on how I do this by clicking here.
It's gentle enough to use on make up brushes but cleans them really well. Have been using this on my brushes for years and can really recommend it!
Would repurchase? Yes, already have.

Garnier Mineral Deoderant
This smells quite nice and it's one of those 48 hour deoderants. I don't really know if it lasts 48 hours as I shower daily. Usually love Garnier products but this didn't wow me. Prefer the Sure deoderant brand or roll ons.
Would repurchase? No.
 
Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash (HG)
I wrote about this in my What's in My Shower post. You can read my thoughts on it here.
Would repurchase? Yes, already have a new bottle in my shower.

Gillette Satin Care Shave Gel (HG)
Another product featured in my What's in My Shower post.
Would repurchase? Yes, already have.
 
Coconut Body Butter 
I bought this when I was visiting my mate up north. It's from Bodycare (which we sadly don't have down in London!). I think it was about £0.99, so a complete bargain. The smell is nice and coconutty and reminds me of being on holiday. It absorbes into the skin nicely and is very moisturising. Bargain product! 
Would repurchase? Yes. 

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (HG)
If you haven't already tried this you really need to! I love using this to cleanse my face. It removes all my make up and is gentle enough to use on the eyes. As it is used with a muslin cloth, it gently exfoliates your skin without being too abrasive. Also, this does not dry out my skin but leaves it feeling moisturised and clean. Brilliant product!
Would repurchase? Yes, I have already gone through several of these and would definitely repurchase!

Garnier Simply Essentials 2 in 1 Make Up Remover (HG)
Another product I love. I use this to remove my eye make up. It's similar to the Clarins product as you have to shake it up first before applying it on a cotton pad to remove your make up. This is gentle yet effective and better than most high end make up removers I've tried, and available for a quarter of the price.
Would repurchase? Yes, already have. Also worth stocking up when it's on offer.

Clarins Instant Eye Make Up Remover
I got this as a free sample with a gift set. It's one of those make up removers that contains a blue liquid and a clear liquid which you have to shake up before using. Usually I think Clarins products are amazing, but I didn't really like this product. It wasn't great at removing all my make up and as it's Clarins I'm sure it's quite pricey.
Would repurchase? No

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
This is quite an expensive Foundation Primer, but you only need the tiniest amount so it lasts ages. This is the second one of these I've bought. It smooths out your skin, creating a perfect base to apply your foundation on. I still have to powder my face using this product as I get oily around my T-Zone in the day, but my foundation lasts all day when I use this. I've heard that Smashbox is going to be availabe at Boots soon, so those of us in the UK will be able to save money with our Advantage Cards!
Would repurchase? Yes

Kerastase Serum Nuit 
I bought this from the hairdressers. It's an overnight hair treatment you don't have to wash out. You apply it on your dry hair before you go to bed and it nourishes your hair overnight. I had this for over a year but I've used it all up now and it definietly left my hair feeling softer in the mornings after I'd put this on.
Would repurchase? Yes

Lee Stafford Dehumidifier
This product is brilliant. It was in my August favourites and I love using it. It smells gorgeous and really helps keep my hair from frizzing up after I've straightened it. A must have product when the weather is rainy as it has been this month! 
Would repurchase? Yes, already have.

John Frieda Frizz Ease (HG)
I use this every time I wash my hair. I apply it when my hair is soaking wet beore blow drying it. It's a really thick serum (some serums I've tried are very runny).  I've got very dry hair and this is great for smoothing out my hair and making it less frizzy!
Would repurchase? Yes, already have.

 Well, those are my September empties! I hope you've enjoyed this post? Have you done an empties post on your blog? If so please link it in the comments below so I can have a look!

  10. I've been using the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer for ages now and I love it! I think all Smashbox priducts are but more pricey than other brands, but they are excellent quality! Definitely worth the extra money I think!
