September Empties

I think this is the smallest amount of products I've ever used up this month. 

Live Native Samples - Essential Earth Exfoliating Lemongrass Cleanser (5ml), Essential Beauty Serum (2ml) and Essential Woman Frangipani Fresh Moisturiser (5ml) - these were simply lovely to use and I definitely want to try some more items from the range.  You can see my review here. I'll buy the Essential Beauty Serum again.

Kerastase Lait Vital 200ml - one of my favourite conditioners.  See my review here. I'll buy this again at some point.

Nuxe 24-hr Moisturising Body Lotion 15ml x 2- this is lovely, got a couple more samples to use. Sure to pick up full size at some point.

Aurelia Priobiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser sample* - I was sent this to review - see here. Loved this. Will definitely buy when my stash goes down a bit.

Burt's Bees Milk & Shea Butter Body Wash 29.5ml - wasn't a fan of this. Didn't like the scent and found the wash too runny.

Korres Guava Shower Gel 50ml - one of my favourite Korres scents.  Sure to buy it again.  See my review here.

Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer 7.5ml - this was a Glamour mag freebie. Enjoyed using it and would maybe buy full size.

Lavera Organic Wild Rose Bath Salts sachet - these are a favourite of mine and I received these ones from Alice in the all things nice swap.  Sure to pick these up again and soon.

REN Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel 15ml - loved this gentle gel cleanser which smells of rose and would consider purchasing.

Melvita Orange Blossom Floral Water 28ml - this came in the BBB Edit box. Nice enough to use but wouldn't re-purchase.

Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water 35ml - this was nice to use and easily removed make up. Got a couple more to use up but would consider purchasing.

Abahna Frangipani & Orange Blossom Body Lotion 50ml - my favourite Abahna scent. Sure to pick this up again. See my review here.

Pure Fiji Coconut Nourishing Exotic Oil sample size - simply adore this body oil and will buy it again and again!

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil 10ml - love this multi-purpose oil. Will pick this up again in the future.

Lush Ocean Salt 120g - love this face scrub and sometimes use it on my body too due to the large scrubby flakes. Smells gorgeous too. Will pick this up again at some point.

Therapie Equilibrium Bath & Shower Essence 100ml - simply amazing bath oil. Great for de-stressing and soothing it helps to bring calm and balance back into your life.  One I'll definitely be picking up again and soon!  A small size of this is included in my giveaway.

Wellgreen Lewes Rose Body Butter 80g - one of my favourite body products. A rich butter lightly scented with rose which Amanda makes freshly when you order!  See my review here. Yesterday I purchased another pot.  Simply gorgeous.

Wellgreen Lewes Orange Blossom Body Butter - sample pot - this is lovely too with a light orange scent.  See my review here. Sure to pick this up again.

Have you used any of these products?

*PR sample


  1. I haven't used any of those but that nuxe oil sounds good, would love to try more from that brand just dont know where to.start xx

    1. nuxe is great! on their website you can collect points and they offer travel size sets which are great to try products plus you get a free mini sample with order x

  2. I've used That Gal before and there are better primers out there for the price. Nuxe I love. Their dry oil is wonderful. I've used products from Kerastase, REN, Melvita and Lavera, but not the ones you list. There is just so much out there, you do well to get through so much in a month.


    1. I quite liked it and may purchase it at some point. Me too! x

  3. You have done really well to get through so many things this month. I love the Korres guava showergel. I had a sample of the Melvita orange floral water but I thinks it must be a dud - it smells awful, not like Melvita products at all.

    1. Thanks. Korres Guava is one of my favs. I didn't really take to the scent either! The rose one is lush x

  4. Good to hear the Nuxe Micellar Water is worth picking up :) Love that Korres Guava shower gel, one of my favs scents too! x

    1. I maybe slightly prefer the REN but it's nice too. Adore the scent of guava! x
