Empties – September 2014

So it’s empties time and oddly this month there haven’t been too many things that I’ve actually finished. I can’t really decide why that is. I’ve been using lots of beauty products that’s for sure but I’ve also been gifted lots of new things to try and I can be quite fickle and flit from product to product. Whatever the reason here’s a little about the products that made it all the way the the trash can (in the nicest possible way!)

Phyto Plage Apre Soleil Rehydrating Shampoo

I’m so disappointed that this shampoo is finished. It’s designed for hair that needs protection from sun, sea and sand but I found it the best shampoo for my heat processed, coloured hair – no salt water was involved. I do want to buy it again but it’s a little more than I like to pay for hair products. That said I’ll probably waste money buying lots of products that aren’t so good and wished that I just  paid up! I reviewed this here if you want read more about it. It costs £13.50 here.

Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus All Smooth Makeup SPF15

I bought this Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus All-Smooth Makeup SPF15 way back in February when I’d been blogging for less than a month. I’ve used a couple of other brands in between (Oxygenetix and Balance me) but this was my staple. The shade I had did become a little pale for me during the heght of summer but then I tended to wear BB cream anyway. It gives me just the level of coverage I like. I put it on with a brush and then smooth over with my finger tips. It feels great and makes my skin velvety to the touch. I’d say it has a dewy rather than a matte finish. I’d prefer it if it had a pump dispenser but otherwise it’s a pretty good all round product. To be fair they’ve summed it up pretty well in their own blurb:

Repairwear Laser Focus All-Smooth Makeup SPF15 provides beautiful, natural coverage and contains active ingredients derived from its partner treatment product, Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle and UV Damage Corrector. Softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles instantly, and over time. Instantly creates a younger-looking, glowing complexion. Boosts natural collagen production. Lightweight natural formula with natural coverage. Broad spectrum SPF15 protection.”

It costs £29.00 here. I’d be perfectly happy to buy it again – the problem is that there are som many new products to try #beautybloggerproblems

Dior J’adore Voile de Parfum

I’ve had a tester of this J’adore Voile de Parfum for a while. I love it when the testers are have atomisers and so I’ve been using this one as a stand-by in my make up bag.  I was just getting to like it when it ran out! It has a slight rose scent to it which seems to be really popular at the moment. What a classy looking bottle too!

They say:

“J’Adore has become a Voile de Parfum that leaves its sensual impression with infinite delicacy. Stealthy and unostentatious, yet with all its floral radiance intact, J’adore Voile de Parfum by Dior nestles in the ethereal folds of a sensual veil. J’adore has, quite simply, invented a new way of wearing perfume. At once, J’adore Voile de Parfum takes hold, opening with an aristocratically powdery Tuscan iris that is potent and lingering. This lead-in precedes the luminous sensuality of Rosa Damascena.”

If this is your kind of fragrance you can buy it here from £56.00

So that was short and sweet. I’ll be trying a lot harder to finish things up this month and so the Halloween empties edition should provide you with a lot more reading.

Are any of this month’s empties among your favourites? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.

    1. I’ve been trying out lots of new scents. I’m still loving Bonbon but can’t quite afford it at present. Got loads of samples from Escentual yesterday so may find another favourite.
