September 2013 Product Empties

I cant believe that we're already at the end of September this year. I really feel like this year has gone by so quickly. I thought I'd do a dedicated post on my product empties of the month. I've always loved reading these posts on other beauty blogs and watching my favourite gurus on Youtube share their thoughts on the products they've used up that month. Here are the 9 products I have used up and what I think about them.

Vaseline Total Moisture Body Lotion (Dry Skin)
I actually bought this after a recommendation that it helps to diminish the appearance of keratosis pillaris. I love that this lotion provided enough hydration without being too greasy. Would I buy it again? Yes and I already have. It's a great and affordable moisturiser.
Vaseline Total Moisture | Product Size: 750ml | RRP AU$11.59 | Available from pharmacies and supermarkets
Burberry Body Perfume
I received this as a gwp. Although this perfume smells pleasant enough, it did not entirely suit me. I found it to be too mature for my liking. I used it around the home and used it to soak cotton balls to give a nice scent to my drawers. Would I buy it again? I wouldn't purchase the full bottle of this perfume for myself.

Clinique All About Eyes | Eye Cream
I have a ton of these little pots because I take advantage of Clinique gwp offers and these always seem to be included in the gift packs. I have been using this for years now. I find that this cream is light but provides great moisture around the eye area.  Would I buy it again? No, only because I have so many sample pots and I get my supply from the gwp packs.

Dior Duo Express Eye Makeup Remover
Another product I received in a gwp offer. I didn't really find this product to be spectacular. A cheaper brand of eye makeup remover actually did a better job than this product. Would I buy it again? No, because I don't think it's worth the AU price. I will however keep the mini bottle because it's a great little size for travelling.

Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion
I have been using this facial lotion since I was about 15 years old. 10 years on and I'm still a fan. I love how easy the clinique cleansing system is and how efficient it is. I don't notice much of a difference between the original formula and the new formula. Would I buy it again? Absolutely!...but maybe not until there's another gwp offer...(haha I'm a sucker for gwp)

Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara
My HG in mascara. I have no bad things to say about this product (except for the AU price, but it's that good that I think it's worth it anyway). Would I buy it again? I need a new one but I'm waiting a bit because I heard that Lancome and Myer have some special offers coming up.

Lancome Miracle So Magic! Perfume
I absolutely love this scent. It's fresh, fruity and feminine without being too over-the-board. It's light enough to wear daily and it's a scent that does not offend anyone.  Would I buy it again? Definitely!

Priceline Beauty Essentials Nail Polish Remover
I can't get enough of nail polish removers. I change my nail colour so frequently that I find I go through 1-2 bottles per month easily. Would I buy it again? Yes. This remover works well and is very reasonably priced.
Priceline Nail Polish Remover | Product Size: 125ml | RRP AU$3.49 | Available from Priceline stores.
 That concludes my post. I'm glad I saved the empty packaging so I could do this post (I've been meaning to do it for ages, but I usually end up throwing out the packaging). What was your favourite product this September?.

  1. Ohh so many empties this month! I'm annoyed - my mum is staying at my house for the week and she cleaned my bathroom, which meant she threw away all my saved empties haha! xx

    1. Ohh noo...well at least you don't have to throw them away yourself. Less chores for you :) hehe. x Sunshine

  2. I adore Doll Eyes, such a great mascara! I use the Palmer's AHA/BHA lotion for keratosis, but this one sounds nice as well. Have you tried the Palmer's lotions?

    1. Hi Emma, No I've never tried the AHA/BHA lotion. I didn't even know it was around. Thanks for letting me know about it. I'm going to check it out when I'm at Priceline next. x Sunshine.


Hi and thanks for leaving a message! :) Sunshine x
