September Empties


Avène eau thermale spray for sensitive skin. I really enjoyed using this, it made my face feel really fresh after cleansing. I have quite sensitive eyes so it really helped to spritz this over them after removing my eye make up. I wouldn't say this is an essential product but it made a nice addition to my skincare regime. I only bought the mini 50ml can so next time I think I'll buy the biggest as I went through it very quickly.
Clinique dramatically different moisturising gel 50ml. Theres a little teeny but left in the tube that i cant get out so i may actually cut it open. I bought this as part of the 3 step skin system from Clinique. I liked using an oil-free moisturiser as I do have oily skin but I felt that it wasn't really moisturising enough. I don't think I'll be repurchasing this as its pricey and didn't do anything fantastic to my skin.

Radox fresh aqua 24h. I didn't really like this, it was a panic but as I'd forgotten to put deodorant on that morning. It doesn't smell very nice and it certainly didn't last 24 hours. I will not be buying this again. I think I will stick to buying bath gels from Radox in the future.

Bioderma sensibio Micelle Solution.
This is my holy grail make up remover. After spending loads on Clarins (it was the only thing that would remove MAC fluidline without scrubbing at my eyes for an hour) I was so happy to find this. It was super easy for me to buy living in Switzerland but now I'm moving back to the UK I'm worried I won't be able to get hold of it- so I've stocked up on 3 bottles. I will continue to use this until I discover something better. It is so easy to take my make up off with this and it doesn't irritate my eyes at all.

Benefit They're Real Mascara. There is some left in the tube but its so dry it's impossible to apply. In disappointed how quickly it has dried out as I've only had it 3 months ( I know this is the recommended life span of a mascara, but still!) it is a very nice mascara. I wouldn't quite say it made my eyes look as if I'd applied false lashes, but it made them thick, voluminous and very black. The brush made it super easy to apply mascara to the tiny lashes in the corner of my eyes. I think I will eventually repurchase this. I've got my eye on something else at the moment.

Have you used any of these products? What did you think of them?

  1. Great post! I haven't used any of those products, but I've always wanted to try They're Real mascara :) I've never had an empties post myself lol Don't know if that's good or bad...lol

    1. Thanks :) it is a fantastic mascara, it has probably given me the longest lashes out of all the mascaras I've used. Try one! I think it's a good way to show which products you've really used a lot and to give mini reviews :)
