September Empties!

Hello everyone! It's that time of the month again where I show you all of the products that I've used up! September brought a ton of empty products, so let's hop right in! :)


John Frieda Sheer Blonde Color Preserving Shampoo & Conditioner - Now you might know that I actually am a brunette, but I won these hair products in a giveaway. I checked out the ingredients, and they aren't colour depositing, so I gave them a chance. These products were very hydrating, and I really liked them!

Dermagist Detoxifying Cleanser* (reviewed here) - I really loved this cleanser, and I do think that it helped to clear up my skin!

Lush Herbalism* (reviewed here) - This is one of Lush's solid roll cleansers, with an earthy scent. Herbalism offered a light exfoliation, and I kept this jar in my shower. I do like this cleanser, but I think I prefer liquid cleansers a bit more. 

Lush Ultra Bland* (reviewed here) - I loved this cleansing balm! I really liked it to help remove eye makeup, and I recently started using it on my Clarisonic. I highly recommend this product!

Bath and Body Works Fresh Picked Strawberries Gentle Foaming Hand Soap - I love this strawberry scent, it's one of my favourites from BBW! I love these soaps, and always have them on my bathroom counter. 

Bath and Body Works Fresh Picked Apples Body Lotion* (reviewed here) - I absolutely loved this lotion! The fresh apple scent is amazing, very light and fruity. I would absolutely buy more of the Fresh Picked Apples products :)

Bath and Body Works Poolside and Ice Cream Shop Candles - These scents were both absolutely amazing. Poolside is a fantastic Summer scent, and Ice Cream Shop was a bit sweeter and deeper. 


Clinique Different Lipstick in Angelic - This was a nice natural berry-nude shade. I love Clinique's lipstick, they're very creamy and pigmented!

Origins Ginzing - I loved this eye cream, it was beige in colour and helped to slightly hide my dark circles. 

Clinique Full Potential Lips in Voluptuous Violet (reviewed here) & Glamourful x2 - These lip glosses are amazing. They're very creamy, and have a bit of a thicker formula, but they aren't sticky. 

Buxom White Russian* (reviewed here) - I really love these glosses from Buxom, they're very creamy and I love the vanilla scent. I just got another sample of this shade in the Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip set!

Revlon Lash Potion (reviewed here) - This quickly became one of my favourite mascaras! I think this is the first Revlon mascara that I've used, and I definitely want to repurchase it. 

Buxom Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara sample (reviewed here) - This mascara was nice, but I don't think it's any better than my favourite drugstore mascaras! Therefore, I won't be purchasing the full size tube. 

Lush Tramp Shower Gel* (reviewed here) - This was a very masculine, earthy scent that is outside of what I normally gravitate towards! I love Lush's shower gel formulas, and I always like to have one of their scents in my shower at all times. 

OPI Original Polish Remover* - This is hands down my favourite polish remover ever! I always reach for this when I'm wearing glitter polish, since it makes that process a lot easier. 

Eve Caron Orange Soap - I didn't really like this soap at all, it was a bit drying. I won't repurchase. 

CoverGirl Cheekers Powder Blush in Soft Sable - I've had this blush for years, and I used to wear this all the time. The shade was really flattering, and it lasted almost all day long. I highly recommend this blush range!

Garnier Belle Color ColorEase Creme - This hair dye was alright, but it wasn't my favourite. I probably won't repurchase since I like other formulas better!

Sephora Collection Eye Shadow Palette* - This palette was good, but I didn't find myself reaching for it all that often. I recently went to use this shadow, and one had gone moldy, so it's time to hit the trash bin!

Yankee Candle Tarts in Vanilla Caramel and Home Sweet Home - I love these little tarts, they let you try out a bunch of different scents without breaking the bank! Vanilla Caramel is an incredible scent that I will be repurchasing!

Lush The Brightside Bubble Bar* - This citrus scenting bubble was so uplifting and energizing! This creating a ton of bubbles, and I would repurchase :)

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish sample - I actually didn't love this product! I know that this is a cult product, but it just wasn't for me. 


Sunsilk Hold Me Forever Hair Spray - This is another product that didn't really work for me. It made my hair a bit crispy, so I won't repurcahse. 

Colgate Total & Colgate Optic White Toothpastes - I liked both of these, they helped keep my teeth white and clean!

Nivea Sheer Comfort Deoderant - I love this one since it is aluminum free. I would recommend checking out this one before splurging on the La Vanilla formula. 

Vidal Sassoon HydraBlock Color Preserving Conditioner - This came with a box of hair dye, and I actually really liked it! It was light, but still very hydrating. 

NYC Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara - This was one of the worst mascaras I've ever used, I wouldn't recommend it at all. :(

ROC Instant Facial Smoother - There was a point when I adored this product, but the formula recently went a bit off. Now it's really liquidy and doesn't quite get the job done.

Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Eyes and Lashes* (reviewed here) I applied this morning and night before applying an eye cream. I think that this product helped my skin absorb my eye cream a lot better, and I really loved it!

Avene Mattifying Fluid sample - This moisturizer was quite nice! I don't think I've tried anything from Avene before, but now I want to explore the brand. 

Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion - This lotion was really nice, but I don't think that it was anything super special. I wouldn't spend the money on the full size bottle. 

Benefit Hoola (reviewed here) - This was one of my favourite bronzers, and I finally finished off this 11g box! This can look a bit orange on me, so you do have to blend it out quite a bit. 

Dove Deep Moisture Day Lotion - This was a nice, cheap facial moisturizer with an SPF 15. I liked wearing this in the Summer since it did offer a bit of sun protection. 

Whew! So that's everything that I've used up this past month! I really don't know how I continue to use up so many products month after month. I would love it if you left me a comment letting me know something that you've used up recently! :)


  1. Wow, you used up a ton! I love buxoms white Russian too :)

    1. I know, it's crazy!
      White Russian is such a beautiful, easy colour to wear :)

  2. I've had my Ultrabland for nearly a year and it's not even half way gone :/ I should have probably used it more often

    1. Oh definitely start using it more often! I really like it for gently removing makeup :)
