September Empties

I know YouTubers usually do these more than people who blog but I thought I'd just do this because I really wanted to talk about these products. I was really surprised how well some of these performed but then there's a few which I'm disappointed about. (PS who loves my empties bag. It's so pretty. I did buy it for a gift but ended up keeping it for myself haha)

Elvive Shampoo + Conditioner

Oh my god these are so amazing! They have totally transformed my hair. Everyone in my house is hooked on these now too thanks to me. They smell really fresh and my hair looks and feel so much more fuller when I use these. All I can say is if you haven't tried these then go out and get them. (Also recommend the hair mask too these too!)

Would I repurchase? Already have. I'm pretty much stocked up for the next few months (yes really!)

Mitchum Pure Fresh Deodorant
So this was my mistake I picked up the wrong one. I thought I'd picked up the Shower Fresh scented one but instead I picked this up. The smell is just disgusting. I think it literally smells worse than BO. I've used it a few times just in case it's one of the sprays that smells different once it's on your skin... it's not. I put it in my body spray basket which I have in my room when I realised it's just not for me and kind of forgot about it and when I was re organising my room the other day I realised it'd leaked out everywhere but I'm not sad about that at all. I was more annoyed that I had to spend a good half hour cleaning all my body spray bottles and things with wipes to get this horrible smell off.

Would I repurchase? I think you can guess what my answer is...

Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub

Now moving onto to something which I adore. This is the best body scrub I've ever used and I think it's probably one of the best smells I've ever smelled in skin care products too. It literally smells like maple syrup. It's really sweet but not a overpowering sickly sweet smell and it's a really good thick scrub which works wonders if you have sensitive skin and these pots seem to last a while. I Always use this when I'm having a pamper kind of day or evening.

Would I repurchase? Already have!

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel
I got three 100g bottles of this last Christmas and in the Boxing Day sales. I've only got one more left! Can't wait to get my hands on a 250g bottle in October. It reminds me of fairgrounds just because it smells like candy floss and it's a really good shampoo as well as shower gel. I have found a kind of dupe to this which you can read about here if you do end up running out of Snow Fairy before the Christmas range is released.

Would I repurchase? Yup, definitely.

Boots Cucumber Wipes
Yes I know this is a boring one so I'll keep it short and sweet. I know wipes aren't supposed to be the best things to use when you have oily/spot prone skin but these have cleared my skin up a lot. But because I was getting through a lot of these wipes a week I've decided to just use them here and there and mainly use them for eye make up removal and use micellar water to remove any foundation etc.

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Sure Compressed Bright Bouquet Deodorant

Time for a rant! Guess how long this lasted?? 5 days! I really do not believe in these compressed deodorants. I only bought it to give it a try and see what it smelled like. I literally used it once a day and it lasted 5 days. It's supposed to hold the equivalent as an 150ml can. I don't think so. I personally think its lies and basically just a money making scheme that they've all jumped onto. Give me a proper sized can spray any day I'll throw a roll on deodorant in my bag from now on.

Soap and Glory Hand Food Lotion

Another amazing Soap and Glory product. I suffer with quite dry hands around this time of the year. I bought this for the first time about a year ago and it's helped so much. This compact hand cream is only £2.50 and I use it all the time and it's lasted about 6 months. A little goes a long way and it smells like the Original Pink scent which I adore.

Would I repurchase? Already got two more tubes (one was in a free gift set)

Lush Cup o Coffee
There's only a few Lush products that I've tried that I don't like much and this is one of them unfortunately. I thought I'd buy this because I'm a coffee lover and I know coffee is supposed to make your skin look brighter and fresher. I did love it at first but then I found it to be too gritty and it was making my skin dry out. It was also stinging my skin a little too. So instead of using it on my face I used it up as a body scrub. 

Would I repurchase? Nope.

Soap and Glory Kick Ass Blur and Brighten Crayon
This ran out a few months ago but I found it lurking in my make up case for some reason so I thought I'd write about it. I was really excited when I bought this to get it home and try it because I usually love S&G products. When I did try it I was disappointed straight away. It's really oily and creamy and it sits in your creases quite badly. I did manage to fix it from doing that by applying loose powder over it but after trying to persevere with it for a few days it was running out (because it's so creamy it melted really fast when applying
) and I was also breaking out in spots and I stopped using it.

Would I repurchase? No.

So there's my September empties! Hope you enjoyed this post. Have you tried any of these products, if so did you love/hate them? x
