September empties and favourites

I can't believe that it's the end of September already, especially as it's still so warm and sunny here in the UK. It seems only yesterday I was putting together my August empties and now here we are at the end of another month. Recently I had a clear out and discovered quite a few products that I'd forgotten about. Add in some miniatures from a weekend away along with the usual daily essentials and I've managed to accumulate 17 empties this months:

Empties, Favourites, September, Dove, Batiste, Radical skincare, Clinique, Paul Mitchell, Maxfactor, Rimmer, Herbal Essences
September empties and favourites

I always seem to get through at least one dry shampoo every month and September was no exception. I really liked the fresh scent and fine mist of Herbal Essences clearly naked dry shampoo but had some problems with the can as it seems to have stopped spraying half way through. Both the Batiste dry shampoos were nice enough but I much prefer the brunette version or one of their more fruitier scents. I also really liked the Paul Mitchell clarifying shampoo. It had an invigorating lemon scent and helped to gently get rid of product build up without being harsh or irritating on my scalp. 

Rather annoyingly all my daily essentials seemed to run out at the same time. Radical anti-aging restorative moisture has been a life saver recently and Clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion+ great for using under make up. I also really liked Rimmel stay matte powder for touch ups during the day although sadly the plastic lid proved too fragile for my handbag. Other favourites include Dove beauty blossom nourishing body lotion and Maxfactor clump defy mascara, both of which I'd happily repurchase again. 

How did you get on this month? What were your beauty favourites?


  1. That Stay Matte powder is so great, I always have one around somewhere because you can always rely on it to just get the job done :) How did you find the BB powder? I've been intrigued by it for a while...

    1. I liked the GOSH BB powder, it's similar to the Rimmel one in that it helps to mattify without looking cakey but it offers a little extra coverage too x
