September Empties!

This is such a cop out of a post…LOL! But hey, I want to show you I used up some stuff again… I’m on a roll! They are mostly skincare, well, they are all skincare, but I finished them nonetheless.


I’ve reviewed Caudalie Beauty Elixir before, and I’ve used up this 30ml bottle. Cleansers are easy to use, and I’ve squeezed out everything from Origins Checks and Balances. The other tube of A Perfect World will be gone soon too. <review here> Maybe I’ll have an impressive October Empties… maybe not 😉

I still have a few bottles of Vichy Eau Thermale because I grabbed them when they were on sale before they pulled out of our shores. It was really cheap and this comes in handy. I use it to clean my children’s hands before wiping them. On a terribly hot day, I blast my car AC and spray this everywhere – helps cool down the car faster, in my opinion. Or I just spray my face to bring down the redness.

The RVB Holistic Beauty moisturiser is a mattifying one but I really dreaded the smell. It is an organic product, but it smells like vomit. I endured through the whole bottle so I guess it was either not too bad, or I am just really persistent. Anyway, I definitely won’t be repurchasing this.

What did you use up last month?

    i don’t think i have any empties for september….oh wait! i finished a tube of pantene conditioner 😀 some months ago, i bought a hair mask from a haircare store, i felt so cheated because even a RM8 pantene conditioner works much better than that. and i was told that it was the best seller. i guess i am never going to believe these people again nor buying an unknown brand

      Oh, I hate that too! I got sucked into some stuff before, and I didn’t return to that store ever again. Some people would do anything just for a buck.

  • I seriously want to try the Caudalie Beauty Elixir and I should since it’s pretty cheap here, haha. I love seeing empties, it makes me happy!

    • Lily

      If Caudalie is affordable in Belgium, then you should try it. I’d say try the small bottle first though 😉 I love seeing empties too…but I also feel stressed that I have to repurchase. Some staples are quite expensive. Ouch 😉

  • Yes to Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir! I got Mum an anti-aging serum from the brand and Mum seems to be liking the texture but it’s too early to tell if it’s helping with her wrinkles =D I doubt I’ve used anything up this month as it’s been a month of using sample-sized products as I have been going out and about so much! Looking forward to next week! 😉

      Heya! I was just writing a post on an anti ageing serum. You should get your mom on the Estee Lauder ANR. I can’t wait for next week too! You must let me know when to expect you so I can plan my schedule 🙂

    I’m on my way to finishing my Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir! But this month’s empties would be OPI’s nail envy nail strengthener, Johnson&Johnson’s baby shampoo, Cetaphil’s body moisturiser and Dior’s Hydra Life Gel Serum!

    • Lily

      Which one would you repurchase, Charlotte?

      • Charlotte

        Hmm, I’ll definitely repurchase the OPI’s nail envy, I used to have really soft/thin/easily chipped nails but after going through bottles of these (to be exact, 4 in the past 2 years), my nails are now stronger (although having nail polish on my nails helps too).

        I’m also thinking of repurchasing the baby shampoo, since it is gentle and I have the urge to wash my hair quite frequently and most of all, it makes me smell like a baby! 😀

        Cetaphil’s moisturiser is a great product, zero scent and light-weight but I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing this (yet) since I have tonnes of unfinished body lotions/body butters..Did not realised that until I spring-cleaned my room and also my bags LOL!

        As for Dior’s hydra life gel serum, don’t think I’ll be buying this again. Don’t get me wrong, not that I don’t like it, I’ve gone through 3 of these! I use this at night during the winter months in Australia as it is moisturising enough and not too heavy. But winter is almost over now and I think it is time to move on and try other products hahaha..

        Oops, sorry for the long babbling 😛 Have a great day Lily!

        • Lily

          No apologies needed! I love to know what your thoughts are. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • I had a lot less empties in September than I thought I would 🙁 Still need to take those photographs, lol. I’m running behind! How did September go by so quickly?

    • Lily

      I feel ya… it’s October already! When Christmas comes, it’ll be 2013 in a blink of an eye. Scary….
