October Empties

Here's what I've been using up in October:

Pinks Boutique Lemongrass Organic Toner sample size* - loved this. In fact I loved the whole mini set.  See my review here. This is one I'll buy full size.

Rosemira Aloe & Pink Grapefruit Gel Cleanser sample* - I simply loved this refreshing and super fruity cleanser.  See my review here. Sure to pick this up full size at some point as I loved it.

Rosemira Organics Calming Toner sample* - this was lovely to use. See my review here. Sure to buy some bits from the brand at some point. Love that they sell samples too.

Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil 3ml* - one of my favourite Aromatherapy Associates bath oils. See my review here. Sure to buy full size one of these days!

Marble & Milkweed Tulsi Facial Tonic sample - this came in the extra special summer getaway kit. Loved it and would consider buying full size. Everything from the mini kit I've loved.

bodhi Jasmine Falls Relaxing Bath & Shower Therapy 50ml - one of my favourite bodhi & birch scents. Got another in my stash.

L'Occitane Relaxing Bath Salts 300g - I loved these and have re-purchased. See my review here.

Hotel Costes Bath Flakes 7g - loved this single use sachet. Full size firmly on the wishlist.

Madara Refreshing Fresh Mint Soap 250ml - love this. This is my second bottle and sure to buy again.  See my review here.

bodhi & birch Camomile Sky Calming Bath & Shower Therapy 200ml* - a gorgeous newish launch. See my review here. Sure to buy at some point.

Bee Good Honey, Borage & Echium Intensive Hand Repair 50ml*- love this intensive hand cream. See my review here and see the Xmas box* here.  

Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich Shampoo 27ml - this was a hotel room freebie and was nice to use although I probably wouldn't buy full size.

Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich Conditioner 22ml - again nice to use but probably wouldn't buy full size.

balm balm Mandarin EDT - I got this in one of the earlier Souk Souk boxes. Really liked it. It featured in Little Treats #4. Would maybe purchase.

Be Yummy Skin Food sample - I really like this cream and would buy again. See my review here.

bite beauty lip gloss - shade six - my favourite shade from the Deconstructed Rose box.  I wore it constantly. Would definitely re-purchase this shade if available.

John Masters Organics Lavender & Rosemary Shampoo 30ml - enjoyed using this. Would maybe purchase.

Tay Rosehip Balancing Cleanser 15ml* - this was nice enough but not powerful enough to remove waterproof mascara.  I tended to use it on non-make up days. Wouldn't purchase.

LJ's Natural Solutions Balancing Organic Moisturiser sample - this was really nice to use. I'd consider buying once I use up my huge stash of moisturisers.

LJ's Natural Solutions Very Indulgent Organic Face Oil 30ml - this was really lovely to use.  See my review here. I'd buy once I reduce my stash.

Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts 100g - these are a staple and I'll keep buying them. See my review here.

NHP Nourish Hair Bath 250ml* - I'm sorry to have finished this super moisturising shampoo.  See my review here. I'll definitely buy.

L'Occitane Relaxing Shower Gel 35ml - this was nice to use but unsure if I'd buy again.

Neal's Yard Aromatic Foaming Bath 100ml - I enjoyed using this bubble bath but as I really prefer bath oils I probably wouldn't purchase.

Hairy Jayne Pre-Shampoo Treatment Oil 30ml - this was lovely to use. See my initial thoughts here.

Odylique Superfruit Concentrate 5ml - I simply loved this serum. Full size is on the ever expanding wishlist. See my thoughts here.

Dahliana Overnight Fruit Lift Cream trial size - I simply love this. See my review here. Full size is on the wishlist!
