September wasn't an exceptional month for empties, really. I finished just nine products, almost all of them daily staples. Actually, now that I think about it, there isn't a single interesting product in the bunch. As always, products I had a backup of, or will repurchase in the future are marked with an asterisk (*).

The sun in Australia can be absolutely brutal! Somehow, it seems lower in the sky, and it just beats down on you! Unfortunately, the beautiful, sunny weather has a downside - Australia has one of the highest skin cancer rates in the world - up to 66% of the population will be diagnosed with some form of skin cancer in their lives! That shockingly high statistic could be whittled down with more education on the importance of SPF and sun safety, but unfortunately many people still hold on to the outdated view that sunblock is a product intended solely for beach trips. If I can educate even one person on the benefits of daily sun protection, I'll feel like my blog and I have done a bit of good in this world.

Pür Cosmetics' Fully Charged Mascara is an "anti-aging mascara that has a "magnetic" polymer matrix that wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to instantly lift, separate and define each lash for long-lasting performance." This supposedly magnetic mascara contains 13ml (.44 fl oz) and retails for $22 at Ulta and Kohls. Pür Cosmetics is cruelty free. This mascara was made in Italy.
