Beauty products - March's empty bottles

Now, not every man is into looking as pristine as me before they leave the house. I guess being a perfectionist can be a bit of a downfall and seem like hard work but hey ho, I like to look my best.

I don't spend an awful lot of money on products to keep myself looking presentable because I don't really use that much. If my friends are reading this they will probably disagree but it is actually true!

Beauty Products Empty Bottles - Bearded Couture

The product that I use the most is aftershave. I think I have a problem with it as I normally shower myself in it's glorious scent and then run out within a month. However, I have shocked myself because my "old school" Diesel aftershave has lasted me from Christmas until March. Mother would be proud. I was a bit gutted about running out of this one though as it's now discontinued and the only place I could find it was in Savers. But now they have also stopped selling it. I am gutted as it was my favourite. I need to find a new scent now which is equally as sweet and fruity. Suggestions? GO.

Next is hairspray. I am a loyal fan to TRESemmé Freeze Hold and have been for years. I tend to go through one of these a month. I know I have short hair but I don't like it when it moves. There is always a spare one waiting in the back of my cupboard. 

Staying with the hair theme, I am also a huge fan of John Frieda's Luxurious Volume range and use quite a few of these products on my hair. It gives me the volume I need and also gives my hair the right texture to play with.

Who doesn't love a good tan eh? I always feel much better when I have a glowing face and it makes me look healthier (my own personal opinion). As it is the winter, I achieve this 'glowing face' with Dove's Summer Glow Tinted Moisturiser. It is a gradual tan, so it takes a while to build up but always remember to wash your hands after applying it as I have recently forgotten and have had suffered with orange fingers. I only apply this to my face as it is the only bit of skin people tend to see at this current moment in time. 

Finally and probably my most expensive empty bottle here is the Bobbi Brown CC Cream with SPF 35. I think I got this from John Lewis for around £29? Ouch. The shade I have here is warm nude. It works really well as a moisturiser and concealer and looks light and natural on your skin but I don't think I will be purchasing it again. I think I need some more coverage.

Well, that's my empties for March. Do you use any of the above? Any aftershaves should I try that have a sweeter scent that I could try?
