September 2013 Empties


The Mitchum Advance deodorant is a regular re-purchase.

I'm not even sure where this mini Nivea deodorant came from, I found it when having a clear out. It came in really handy to pop in my bag on days that I went out straight from work. It smelt nice and seemed to work well. I would re-purchase this.


I mentioned these Garnier Ultra Lift samples last month, despite not really getting on with them I decided to finish the samples this month. I wouldn't re-purchase as they aren't suitable for my greasy skin.

I really enjoyed using The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream, I find it hard to judge a product by a sample this size but my skin did seem to enjoy using this. I plan on purchasing this when I have got through all of my sachets (I've banned myself from buying moisturiser until I finish them all) assuming that I don't come across one I prefer.

The Belnatur Oxy-Nutrigen felt nice on the sky during usage but there wasn't really enough in the sachet to trial it properly. I won't be re-purchasing as it didn't wow me and is quite expensive.

I'm not to keen on the smell of the Lavera Wild Rose moisturiser, it is a little too overpowering for my preference, I won't be re-purchasing.

The last little sample is Benefit The Porefessional, I've used this before and always enjoy using it. I won't be re-purchasing purely because of the price, I have tried other primers which are a lot cheaper.


I really love the Reb'l Fleur by Rhianna shower gel, it smells amazing, foams up well and a little goes a long way. I don't tend to buy myself expensive shower gels so won't be re-purchasing but would be quite happy to receive it as a gift.

I received the Monu Skin Perfector in the November 2011 GlossyBox. I mentioned when I first received this that it had an almost medical smell to it, similar to Savlon, after using for a while I did get used to the scent and stopped to notice it. I didn't notice much improvement on my fine lines or wrinkles when using this, my make-up stayed put a little longer but my skin didn't really look any better. I wouldn't re-purchase.

You can read my original review on the Elemis Freshskin Clear Treatment Gel* here, I really enjoyed using this product but am hoping to find a cheaper alternative that works well. I'm currently unsure on whether this will be re-repurchased due to the price
