September Empties / Products I've Used Up

Tuesday, 1 October 2013


Empties time!  You all know the drill by now, so here are the products I've finished off this month, my thoughts on them, and whether I'll be repurchasing them in the future or not.

Anatomicals Don't Just Clean It Woman, Scrub It Body Scrub*
I didn't think much of this to be honest as I prefer my body scrubs to be very exfoliating, and this felt more like a regular shower gel with teeny tiny grainy bits in it that I barely noticed.  Repurchase?  No.

Lush Twilight Shower Gel
I've been rationing out this little Ltd Ed bottle since January(!) and have been keeping its usage strictly for special occasions only, because I was a fool and didn't purchase any backups.  It's my favourite shower gel from Lush and I'm really hoping they bring it back this xmas!  Smells like lavender mixed with toffee sugar, just incredible.  Repurchase?  Yes!

Boots N07 Pampering Dry Oil Body Spray
Have had this lingering in my bathroom for such a long time that I just decided it was time to finally use it up!  It was OK, but I didn't feel like it was moisturising enough for my dry skin and I wasn't that keen on the overly perfumed scent.  Repurchase?  No.

Essential Care Organic Rose Petal Tonic*
One of my favourite toners, this has a subtle rose scent and is a lovely refreshing spray to use as part of your skincare routine or on the go.  I've had this travel size bottle in my handbag all summer long and really enjoyed using it.  Repurchase? Yes.

Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator*
Really like this.  It feels like the exact same formula as Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish but with added jojoba scrubby beads in it, so if you like C&P, you'll probably like this too.  Repurchase?  I have a lot of exfoliators to use up first, but would certainly pick up another tube of this in the future.

Tulecos Tonifying Oil*
Bit of an odd one, but this is a tonifying oil for your feet!  I'd never used a product like this before, but I enjoyed using it when I was doing pedis throughout summer.  Lovely and minty, but it does feel rather greasy and takes some time to soak in.  Repurchase?  No, I think I'll stick to my regular Lush Fairtrade Foot Lotion which is much more affordable.

Tisserand Tea Tree+ Anti-Blemish Stick
I've been using this on/off since the start of January and it feels like it's gone a bit gunky so I'm throwing it out.  It's a gentle blend of tea tree and witch hazel in gel base and helped to clear minor blemishes in a few days.  Repurchase?  Probably not, I find pure Tea Tree Oil clears my spots up much faster than this did for me.

Steamcream
I love Steamcream and have gone through about two or three tins of the stuff.  I use it on particularly dry and eczema prone areas, and it soothes away any irritations quickly whilst being deeply moisturising at the same time.  Repurchase?  Already have another tin in my stash!

Which beauty products have you used up recently?

  1. I love Empties posts! The Lush Twilight shower gel sounds lovely :)
    I'm totally with you on exfoliators that aren't scrubby, it just doesn't feel like there's much point...

    1. It's an amazing scent, haven't come across anything like it before so I really hope they bring it back! I think it's the same as the Twilight Bath Bomb x

  12. I have dry skin but the steam cream didn't quite suit me. But reading that you have used and stocked up so many of these, I might give it another shot.

    1. I'd say try Lush's Dream Cream instead if Steamcream didn't work for you. Both have similar ingredients but you may find Dream Cream a lot more moisturising because of the way it's blended (i.e no 'steamed' like Steam Cream) xx

  13. I must try the Lush Twilight Shower Gel. Everyone raves about the scent!

  14. ohh, I don't think I have tried the Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator yet, the formulation sounds goood!
    I like the steamcream but I wish they would do an unscented version too, I'm not a fan of lavender :( xx

    1. It's great, if you love C&P, you'll love the exfoliator :)
      I know what you mean, the scent isn't for everyone and it would be nice if there was an unscented one xx
