Septembers Empties!

C: Jeeeez, I can’t actually believe that it is October? Crazy. Anyway, I’m pretty sure I say that at the end of every month… so I’ll just get on with my empties! I have once again done pretty well with using up my stash this month, so I am pretty proud of myself (/good excuse to buy more).

1. Nip + Fab 365 Body glow Fix. I haven’t actually finished this, but I won’t use it again this year and I know it will make my skin delightfully green or something next year if I leave it open and use it again next Summer! I really liked using this and it was brilliant at sorting out my dodgy tan lines!

Repurchase: yes! Next Summer though.

2. Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Cleanser. I got a free sample of this in a Magazine at some point – free beauty items is pretty much the only reason I buy them! I really enjoyed using this as I love the scent of Roses, but I wouldn’t be able to say how much of a differences it made to my skin from this little sample. On the plus side I didn’t react to it, so I would say it was suitable for sensitive skin!

Repurchase: yes! Would love to try the full size version.

3. Gilchrist & Soames Shower Gel. I received this sample in one of my Birchboxes and although I like having little shower gels for going away this wasn’t for me. The scent was just a little too “mature” for me? If that makes sense? I like to smell like vanilla and sweets like the 12 year old I apparently am.

Repurchase: no, just due to personal preference.

4. Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre. Another Birchbox sample here! I really liked this, it provided the perfect base for my foundation and I miss it already. The only reason I haven’t re-bought it yet is because it isn’t quite moisturising enough for my dry/eczema-y skin so I wasn’t sure. I think if I used this in the morning and my Clinique in the evening though it would be perfect!

Repurchase: yes.

5. St Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Moisturiser. Another life saver for sorting out my farmers tan, I used this up before I started the Nip & Fab bottle and I really enjoyed using it. It was super moisturising and didn’t have the usual fake tan smell (which I normally hate) and it didn’t make me orange! Yay!

Repurchase: yes.

A very positive empties post today then apparently! Let me know what you guys have been using up or if you have tried any of these products (particularly if you have any Embryolisse tips please!) #twolittleowls

June Favourites

C: now you all need to be super proud of me… I haven’t bought anything new in June! I am saving for a house (which we have hopefully found! Pics to come if you are interested!) and so I have been searching through my beauty stash and re-discovering old favourites that I had forgotten about! So here is what I have been loving this month.

So first up we have Models Own scented nail polish in Grape Juice. I love this colour for the Summer months, and although if you use a top coat you can’t smell it anymore, it lasts for ages without chipping.

The Body Shop’s Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter – I won’t bang on about this as I recently reviewed this here and I have been using it every day to treat my skin and removed all my make up.

St Tropez Gradual Tan… not something I would normally use as I like being pale! However, after getting a tan in a t-shirt dress and then being a bridesmaid in a strapless dress I needed something to even out the farmer tan/ make me look less like my dad. This was perfect for every day use and gave me a lovely natural colour without being orange/patchy. I would recommend for any fake tan newbies as if I can use it, anyone can.

Mac Blusher in Stay Pretty. I won’t go on about this either because everyone knows Mac is amazing, but this beautiful pink has been my go to shade this Summer/Spring. It is so pretty and blends out perfectly.

Last up we have the Balms Mary Lou Manizer – a beauty blogger favourite. I only got this a little while ago with my Birchbox points (and therefore doesn’t count as spending money) and I love it! You can use it for highlighting cheeks, eye brows, eyes or even as an eyeshadow. It also lasts all day and I just love it. The packaging is also super cute which makes me even happier every time I use it.

What have you guys been loving this month? Let us know! #twolittleowlsblog
