Empties | September 2015

Another month down, another assortment of beauty products finished off; September hasn't been the most productive of months for me in terms of beauty empties, but nonetheless here are the few products I have managed to use up this month. We won't go into the fact that it is now officially Autumn here in the UK... or the fact that we are creeping ever closer to the dreaded C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S. I am a fan of denial.
September 2015 Beauty Empties
September Beauty Empties 1
Boots Botanics Shine Away Face Scrub | I love me a good face scrub and I did feel like this worked reasonably well; I'm not sure it mattified my skin at all but it did a pretty good job of smoothing me out. It's not too harsh and my skin seems fine with me using it four or five times per week. All in all, for the price, this worked well.
Repurchase? Already have another tube in my stash, and I'd consider buying again in the future.
Asda Skinsystem Cotton Wool Pads | These were I think 99p for 200, and they did the job perfectly acceptably for me, but I did find they were a little too thin for my preferences. In future I'd tend to favour the Lacura ones from Aldi as they're just a little bit thicker.
Repurchase? Probably not.
COLAB Dry Shampoo in 'New York' | COLAB has definitely replaced Batiste as my dry shampoo of choice; it doesn't leave that horrid white residue in my hair and it seems to work better in making my hair actually feel cleaner, rather than just like I've sprayed a load of product in it. Sadly, COLAB isn't quite as widely available, so I'm stocking up whenever I'm near a Superdrug! New York is my favourite variant, it's a lovely fruity fragrance.
Repurchase? Already have.
September Beauty Empties 2
The Body Shop Glazed Apple Body Butter | This was a seasonal Limited Edition scent last Christmas (picked up for half price after Christmas, obviously!) and I absolutely love the fragrance; it's sweet and fruity, exactly my cup of tea. It works well as a body butter and leaves the kind of lingering scent that has me sniffing myself through the day like a bit of a weirdo...
Repurchase? If The Body Shop have the Glazed Apple range available again this year then I will for sure be stocking up!
Aussie Aussome Volume & Mega Instant Miracle Dry Shampoos | I think including these is kind of cheating as neither of them are actually empty; however, both the nozzles have broken meaning I can't get any more product out of the cans, so there doesn't seem much point holding onto them. These have been an all-round disappointment for me; they smell bloody awful, really chemically and horrible, and didn't do anything to refresh my hair.
Repurchase? Nope. All the nopes.
Beauty Kitchen Inspire Me Brightening & Toning Body Polish* | I've really enjoyed using this body scrub a couple of times per week, I've particularly liked using it on my arms, shoulders and chest; I often get a handful of spots in those areas, I'm not sure why, but using this in the shower every three or four days has really reduced the numbers, which is nice. I'm not sure about brightening and toning, to be honest, but it leaves my skin soft and smooth so I feel like I'm onto a winner and anything else would be a bonus!
Repurchase? Maybe.
Have you tried any of these products? I'd love to know if you agreed with me or had different experiences? Have any of you tried the Aussie dry shampoos?



  1. pfft Aussie has disappointed me so many times with so many products (the smell mainly) that I will never buy anything from the brand :(

  2. The Aussie dry shampoo is so bad! I think it even helped with my hair, plus it is a tiny can for the price! Boo! The Body Shop apple collection was so yummy in smell! So hope it launches again this year :)

  3. I keep hearing so much about the COLAB dry shampoo. I need to get myself some.

  4. Fab empties, its so satisfying using up products! I have tried the Colab range but hated it, it just didnt do anything for my really greasy locks :( xxx

  5. Wow that is alot of empties. Congrats girl! All the products I haven't tried, but I think I need to try to COLAB dry shampoo for sure.

  6. I LOVE the Body Shop Glazed Apple fragrance! Great empties x

  7. I love the sound of the body scrub, I always feel miffed when I am using something I really like and it runs out x

  8. Last year I missed out on this body shop body butter, but this year I'll get my hands on it for sure :D

  9. I have tried none of these, but I have seen the CoLab dry shampoo around the bathroom, apparently it is a lifesaver!

  10. I love body polish. Nothing is complete without it. The dry shampoo you have looks really good, I might get something similar.
