August Empties

I've got loads of empties this month!  So much so the box I hold them in was overflowing!  I'm not going to use anymore up so here goes...

001 Intensive Elixir Precious Finds 50ml* - I simply loved this. It featured in my top products of 2013. So sad to finish this. Another bottle now on my wishlist.  See my review here.

Organic Surge Tropical Bergamot Shower Gel 250ml - this is my favourite Organic Surge Shower Gel. I just love the scent. This is my second bottle. You can see I've mentioned it herehere and here.  Will definitely pick it up again and again!

G Baldwin & Co Pomegranate, Bilberry & Rose Alcohol Free Skin Toner 150ml* - a light and refreshing toner.  See my review here.  I'll probably pick this up again.

Mitchell & Peach English Growers Shower Wash 50ml - love this luxe lavender scented body wash.   

Aurelia Firm & Revitalise Dry Body Oil sample - oh WOW this is amazing! Full size on the wishlist! As like every Aurelia product - it's love!

Therapi Rose Otto Honey Gel Cleanser 5ml - simply gorgeous. Love this. Will buy full size at some point.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser 4ml sachet - this was lovely to use and I got four uses from the sachet. One I'd consider buying.

Pelle Beauty Luxe Beauty Oil sample* - this came in July's Petit Vour box* and I loved it! Would definitely consider ordering full size.

Neom Tranquility Bath Oil mini 5ml - love these little bath oils. Will definitely buy again at some point.

Suti Rosewater Organic Facial Spritz 100ml - I love this and will definitely buy again.  See my review here. The fact that I now miss this is an indication that I will buy again!

Nourish Golden Glow Body Shimmer 2ml sample* - I'm a huge fan of the face variety and this was lovely too although a teeny tiny sample. Would maybe buy full size.

The White Company White Lavender Bath Milk 200ml - I got this as a pressie from hubby and I loved the luxe decanter. Made for a relaxing bath. I'd maybe buy.

OCÉOPIN L'huile de Graines de Pin Maritime 15ml* - this was a really lovely facial oil.  See my review here.  I loved the story behind this oil and how fab it felt on my skin. I'll definitely consider purchasing once I reduce my stash a bit!

Therapi Orange Blossom Honey Moisturiser 50ml* - this moisturiser was a delight to use. Light as air and deliciously scented.  I mentioned it here. I'll definitely buy this to use next summer.  The whole range is simply divine! (p.s. I'm a huge fan).

Soleil Organique Sunblock Mist SPF45 120ml* - loved this and it lasted two summers in the UK.  See my review here. My only negative is the pump stopped working 3/4 of the way down. Despite this I'd buy if going abroad next year.

Indie Lee Calendula Eye Balm 15ml* - I'm a huge fan of this eye balm. Super nourishing it hydrates the eye area. One I'll definitely buy. See my mini review here.

Elemis Absolute Eye Serum 15ml - love, love, love this and nearly always have one in my stash as it just works at banishing dark circles and nourishing the eye area. Will buy a new one after payday.

Aromatherapy Associates Triple Rose Renewing Moisturiser 5ml - this came as a mag freebie and I just love it! Got another to use but one I'd buy.

Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Hand Cream 50ml - a orange scented cream which moisturises the hands and nails and helps save the bees. What's not to love. Will buy again!

Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm 2ml - this came in the Beauty Bible box in association with Latest in Beauty. Loved everything about this cleansing balm it's performance, scent, way it feels on my skin, spa like product etc. etc. Definitely one I want full size!

Bloom Remedies Geranium, Cedarwood & Sweet Orange Shower Gel 250ml - love this first received a smaller size in a swap with Ailsa and loved it so much I bought full size. See my review here. Sure to buy again.

Dr Organic Pomegranate Skin Lotion 200ml* - huge Dr Organic fan and this lotion was really lovely to use. Love the deodorant in this scent too. See my review here.  Would buy.

Living Nature Balancing Shampoo & Conditioner (both 10ml) - I loved the way these left my hair looking - smooth, shiny and soft but wasn't in love with the scents or the fact the shampoo didn't lather. Not sure if I'd buy full sizes.
