August Empties, 2013

This month I have a fair bit of skincare that I finished, as well as some cosmetic products that I'm throwing out because they either don't work for me or are super old. I'm glad to be writing a far more manageable empties post this month and I'm hoping that I'll be able to feature some make up in next month's post. Come on, Sophie. Lift your game!
 Clean & Clear Advantage Pimple Control Cleanser | Clean & Clear Essentials Oil Control Toner | Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant | Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye & Lip Makeup Remover | Kosmea Skin Clinic Certified Organic Rosehip Oil* | Clean & Clear Advantage Pimple Control Moisturiser 

All of the Clean and Clear products featured in this empties post are absolute favourites of mine, along with the Dermalogica Daily MicrofoliantThe Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye & Lip Makeup Remover is a new favourite that removes absolutely everything from my eyes. I have been sooo impressed by Kosmea's Skin Clinic Certified Organic Rosehip Oil and the difference it's made to my skin and I'm really sad that it's gone.

Everything above has been repurchased, except for the Kosmea Skin Clinic Certified Organic Rosehip Oil. I picked up the Trilogy rosehip oil instead because it was available at Priceline and I wanted to repurchase it during the 40% off skincare sale at Priceline (haul here). 
Maybelline Mineral Power Finishing Veil | L'Oreal Studio Secret Magic Perfecting Base | Revlon Matte Lipstick in Nude Attitude | Models Prefer Mattifying Primer | Benefit POREfessional | Estee Lauder and Laura Mercier samples | Clean and Clear Fast Clearing Spot Gel

I've had the Maybelline Mineral Power Finishing Veil, L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base and Revlon Matte Lipstick in my collection for a super long time and, given that I haven't used any of them in a really long time, it's time for them to go. I decided to throw the Models Prefer Mattifying Primer because it was taking space in my collection, most of it's gone and I just don't like it. Benefit's POREfessional and Clean and Clear's Fast Clearing Spot Gel have already been repurchased, with back ups, because they're two things I couldn't go without. 

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them? Let me know! Also, what did you use up this month? 

Always look your best,

  1. I've tried a few of the Clean & Clear products but kind of got a bit over them although I did used to love them when I was a bit younger. I love doing empties posts because I always feel like I'm doing spring cleaning and therefore have more space to buy other things to add to my collection, haha ;)

    1. Hey, Debra! I totally understand. When I was first sent these products last year I didn't want to use them, pretty much thinking the exact same thing. When it was clear my previous routine was no longer working for me I pulled it all out because it was targeted at troublesome skin and its really been working. I've repurchased everything multiple times!

  2. The acne-targeted clean and clear products sound good for me :D Are they drying?

    1. I think they're pretty fabulous! X

    2. I loved the Clean & Clear Spot Gel too Sheri, I think I did a review on it at some point.. I found that it really dried out the actual pimple, but my surrounding skin was okay! :)

  3. You finished up heaps of stuff! I've been on the hunt for that Maybelline cleanser but Priceline are all sold out after the sale :P

    1. I know! I pretty much finished all my skin care products last month so I bet there'll be basically nothing in this month's. Keep looking for the Maybelline make up remover. It's lovely. X

  4. So many empties, Sophie! I don't know how you do it! :P

    1. Hehe! All of my ski care ran out at the same time which helps. I also did a bit of an overhaul and threw away a few bits. I have a lot of stuff with a few uses left and I really want to finish it!! X
