Oh my, another month finished in a flash, not that I’m complaining though! In fact, October excites me for three valid reasons (1) It’s our anniversary month (2) The Walking Dead resumes in two weeks (3) Halloween y’all!  So while I am deciding what character I will be on the 31st, why don’t we revisit my empties for September, kinda like one last hurrah before they get tossed for good…

Paula's Choice Resist Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner,  Paula's Choice Youth Extending Daily Mattifying Fluid SPF 50, review

Several months ago, I had the privilege to try Paula’s Choice Resist skincare line (review here). With a plethora of products I get to try month after month, it’s quite a feat to have consumed one or two at the very least. Paula’s Choice Resist Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner ($23, 118ml/ 4 fl.oz) is one of my favorite toners because it’s gentle, fragrance-free and refines pores albeit tentatively. It also helps keep oil at bay especially last summer, what with heatwave and all. Another go-to in the realm of sun protection is Paula’s Choice Youth Extending Daily Mattifying Fluid SPF 50 ($32, 60ml/ 2 fl. oz). I like the fact that it’s multi-tasking: a lightweight moisturizer, primer and sunscreen in one tube. I have used it many times during the summer because of its high SPF component. Intrigued to try these awesome products? Enjoy 20% off + Free shipping when you use promo code PRIMPFALL20 (shout out to Pretty In My Pocket for this collaboration).

Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Diamond Color & Radiance shampoo and conditioner

I have also reviewed Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Diamond Color & Radiance shampoo and conditioner months ago and while I’m not a great fan of the strong fragrance, this combo did make my hair soft and quite manageable. As to be expected, I have also finished another tub of The Body Shop body scrub. It’s getting repetitive already but it’s the truth, I really love TBS scrubs!

Guerlain Terracota Joli Teint foundation

Going on third tube already, you bet I adore Guerlain Terracota Joli Teint foundation! I wear this whenever I want to look a bit tan under the guise of “faux summer bronze”. It dries semi-matte with commendable wear time (8-9 hours give or take), and that’s without primer and/or setting powder!

what did you finish to-date?

    I need to try that foundation. Especially if it's your 3rd time around with it.

    That foundation has to be incredible if you keep blowing through it like that! I love Guerlain <3 You're my biggest Guerlain enabler!

    Lately, I've been working on finishing up my hoards of shower gels and lotions. It's been a VERY long process but I've went through quite a few over the past several months.

    I've been reading so much about Paula's Choice lately. I think that I have to add them to my try list.

    I need to do an empties post. Mine wouldn't be as fascinating as other's tho.

    I should grab that Guerlain foundation. I'm still very tan from my trip to Cancun in August. My skin holds on to color for what seems like forever!

    You did an admirable job finishing up so many products this month. I finished far less than you did this month, twinsy!

    When you love something you are truly loyal to it. Great items to be emptied.

    I love Paula's Choice!

    Goodness…am I the only one who doesn't finish anything? Well, except maybe toothpaste. =P

  14. October 1, 2015 / 8:02 pm

    It takes me forever to finish things! I have been working on my Paula's Choice products for MONTHS and I still haven't finished any. My cleanser is super, super close to finished though so I'm excited about that!

  15. October 1, 2015 / 11:01 pm

    Every time I see that Guerlain foundation mentioned on someones blog I always think of you. Sounds like a great product!

  16. October 1, 2015 / 11:19 pm

    I really like the Resist Paula's Choice items! Mine are almost empty!

    3 tubes of a single foundation? wow, it must be amazing. It does look great on you!
