September Empties


Hello! This is my second edition of "empties"! You can find my August Empties here . I've got through a few more products this month, so let's get started...



Pantene Classic Care Clarifying Shampoo, £4.69, Boots or Superdrug

I loove this shampoo - basically I use this one or twice a week to remove build up of product and give my hair a squeaky clean feel. It's great because its such a simple shampoo that leaves your hair feeling so clean afterwards, and actually removes excess product such as hairspray or gel. I've used this for that purpose ever since I can remember! I tend not to use this more than twice a week because its so good at stripping your hair of product that with continuous use it will fade hair dye quicker - great if you've got a colour you don't like. Its quite cheap compared to some on the market, and I always rebuy this whenever it's on offer.

Lush: The Comforter Bubble Bar, Space Girl Bath Bomb & Blackberry Bath Bomb

I was originally going to do these as individual posts but I didn't see the point so I'm jamming this post full of Lush goodness! I bought some bath bombs from Lush (only place to buy them really) and I thought I'd go for ones that I've never tried before. So we've got the Comforter Bubble Bar, Space Girl and Blackberry bath bomb which all vary a little in price and size, but are mostly quite fruity and enjoyable (apart from one, but we'll get back to that)

THE COMFORTER BUBBLE BAR





The pictures are TERRIBLE and I do apologise for that, but I was using my camera phone for some reason..

Vaseline Limited Edition Pink Bubbly Lip Therapy



I saw this online a little while ago on a blog.. (name yourself if it is you!) and knew I just HAD to have it. However after some reading I found it was exclusive to Selfridges only and since I don't have one near me, I struggled with justifying a fiver postage on a £3.49 product. However..I was in my local superdrug today and saw these on the shelf and grabbed one straight away!

Clinique Lash Power Mascara

 I have actually had this mascara for about 2 months now, but seem to have completely forgotten to review it. The box is a little battered due to this, apologies!

I've had this mascara before and loved it because it literally doesn't budge - its the ultimate longwear mascara with no flaking or printing. I had some points on my Debenhams Beauty Card which got me a tenner off - so instead of the RRP £16 I was lucky enough to get mine for just £6.

You keep me under your spell

So I don't normally do nail posts...mostly because I don't normally do nails. If I do, I tend to stick to nude polish or the ever classic french manicure because it just goes with everything. I'll be honest, my nails are the one thing I really don't pay that much attention to..and as I result I tend to stick on falsies and go with that.

So anyway I've been eyeing up nails on Pinterest and thought I'd give the ever popular accent nail trend a go!

September Recent Purchases/ Quick Reviews



I've bought a couple of things recently, and wanted to do a quick review of them before going into further detail on some of them with separate reviews. There are a couple of new buys, a couple of repurchases and a couple of gifts (one for a friend, one for me ha) so here's a quick show and tell...


Ardell False Eyelashes in 105 Black, £5.20

These are a re-buy, and are my favourite eyelashes. I tend to wear them a lot - I wear them at work, and on nights out/special events and things like that. I used to wear Eyelure ones until Boots were out of stock, and so I tried these and never looked back. They are the most perfect lashes, so soft and the strip is so small and soft that they look completely natural when worn. I have used Ardell for about a year, and I think they're becoming quite popular in the UK. You can find lots of different designs on the internet as the US have more designs and patterns than we do in England. These are literally the perfect size for my eye- so I can whack them on without having to worry.

The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter*, Body Scrub & Shower Gel



Nom nom nom. Peaches. Peaches and Cream. This new range from The Body Shop is AMAZING, possibly my favourite smell. Its a brand new range for september thats called Vineyeard Peach, and comes in the form of a shower gel, body lotion (not pictured), body butter and body scrub. It contains peach extract and is literally the most accurate smell to a fruit that I've smelt in a product. Think fresh juicy peaches on a summer's day.
