Happy October everyone! The spooky season is well underway. Though if we are being real here, the only scary thing going on here is how little products I used up last month. That’s right, September was a quiet month on the empties front. But we still have to chat about what I used up. Let’s get into it!
CHARLOTTE TILBURY AIRBRUSH FLAWLESS FINISH POWDER – $73.00
Without question, the best pressed powder I have ever used. It sets my makeup with ease and leaves my base so flawless. When I do repurchase this, I’ll pick up shade 1. This was shade 2 and it’s a touch too dark for me now.
PIXI BY PETRA LARGE LASH MASCARA – $25.00*
An excellent mascara for volume and length. But I need the wand’s circumference to be like a milimetre or two smaller.
SKIN CONTROL AM+PM PIMPLE PATCHES – $8.99
Still my favourite patches. I’m pretty sure this is the fifth pack that I’ve gone through. And I especially love that these are now available in more places. Having said that, I do want to try something different. Let me know your favourite pimple patches in the comments.
GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO CERAMIDE RECOVERY SERUM – $72.00
Lovely. Genuinely lovely. So soothing on the skin. I would definitely repurchase.
BARNI SKIN DEW NOT DISTURB MOISTURISER – $54.00*
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this. It has a water gel style texture that I kept expecting to pill on me. But it never did. Also, it smells amazing. Truly like a tropical vacay. I am curious to see how receptive my skin is to this during the summer months. So, I guess I have to grab it soon.
GUINOT BEAUTY CLEANSING MILK TRAVEL SIZE – $35.20*
This was fine. Nothing all that special. Did an ok job with sunscreen but nothing with my mascara.
ULTRA VIOLETTE LEAN SCREEN MINERAL MATTIFYING SKINSCREEN – $52.00
*TGA Declaration – Purchased myself* I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I just don’t like mineral sunscreens. In winter, I find them to be too drying. And in summer, I feel like they are melting off my face. I’ll use up the ones I have left (this one is well past expired). But I’ll be sticking to what works for me.
GUNK OFF MELTING BALM CLEANER – $55.00*
Amy and the team at Gunk Off, you’re all freaking geniuses. My only regret is not saving this for my future holidays. This would be perfect for travel. Guess I have to buy a new one.
HOLIFROG SHASTA AHA ACID WASH – $58.00
My final favourite for this post. This is still the best exfoliating cleanser that I’ve ever used. As soon as I’m down to one cleanser, I’ll be picking this up.
And that is a wrap on my September empties! Let me know what you used up in the comments.
Cheers and love
