September Empties

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

Saach Organics Green Tea & Aloe Vera Shower Gel 200ml* - this was a real pleasure to use and I loved the scent. Will definitely buy again. See my review HERE.

Ruth Romano Lemongrass Organic Hand Wash 250ml* - I really liked this refreshing and effective hand wash. See my review HERE. Will definitely buy next time I'm needing hand wash as it was lovely.

Dr Bronner's Rose Pure Castle Soap mini bottle - I love the Peppermint & Lavender scents but didn't really enjoy the rose one so wouldn't buy again.

Korres Watermelon Body Scrub 150ml - this scrub smells just like watermelons making it fresh and delicious. The scrubby beads are made with bamboo and jojoba. I'd buy again.

TARDES by Carner EdP sample - this came in my July Yearly Sample Pack from Bloom Perfumery. I reviewed it HERE. Full size is firmly on the wishlist.

Bodhi & Birch Mint The Bath & Shower Therapy 200ml - one of my favourites from Bodhi & Birch. Will definitely buy again.

ESPA Naturally Radiant Tinted Moisturiser SPF15 03 Almond 7ml - this was a perfect shade for me with a bit of a tan. I loved everything about it. Super moisturising and a great colour. Would buy full size.

Burt's Bees Almond & Milk Hand Cream 7g - I loved this rich marzipan scented cream which left my hands deeply nourished. Will add to the ever expanding wishlist and buy when I need a hand cream (probably never!)

Yarok Feed Your Youth Hair & Scalp Serum 1oz* - this is another product I'm gutted to have finished as this makes my hair look nourished, glossy and cared for. See my review HERE. Again, being added to the wishlist and a must buy after my spending ban.

Dr Organic Pomegrante Deodorant 50ml - a staple which I buy again and again as it works.

Caudalie Premier Cru L'Elixir 10ml* - huge Caudalie fan and this oil/serum is fantastic. It absorbs instantly and leaves the skin looking healthy and radiant. See my review HERE. It's one I'll definitely consider buying once my stash reduces!

Juliette has a Gun Lady Vengence EDP vial - this came to me via one of the Perfume Society boxes. A heady scent with top notes of Bergamot and Lavender, heart notes of Bulgarian rose, Moroccan rose absolute and Patchouli with a base of Vanilla, musks and woods.  Full size is on the wishlist!

Living Nature Radiance Night Oil 10ml*  - I simply loved this rose scented super luxe oil and it's on the wishlist for sure. See my review HERE.

Living Nature Sensitive Cleanser* & Day Cream* (sachets) - these were nice to use. I especially liked the cleanser. See my review HERE.

AromaWorks samples - Body Finish Cream*, Purity Eye Cleanser* and Rejuvenate Face Serum Oil* - I really liked these. See my review HERE. I especially loved the Body Finish Cream.

Therapie Protect Bath & Body Oil 100ml* - this was gorgeous to use and perfect to use before bed for a restful night's sleep. See my review HERE. It's one I'll definitely pick up.

Skin & Tonic STEAM CLEAN 15ml - I simply love this minty deep cleanser and have a couple more in my stash. One of my favourite cleansers ever.

Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil 1oz* - loved this facial oil. It was the first I tried that used Olive Squalane. Love it and got another one ready to crack open. See my review HERE.

AEOS Beauty Body Shower 10ml* and Beauty Body Lotion 10ml* - these came in the travel/try me kit I reviewed last week (link). I especially liked the shower gel so it's being added to the ever expanding wishlist.

What have you been using up this month?

*PR samples


  1. I absolutely love the sound of Therapie Protect Bath & Body Oil, am a big fan of the Therapie range x

    1. I think you'd like it! Not been a Therapie product I've not loved x

  2. Wow, it seems like you used up quite lots of products this month! I have Dr. Bronner Hemp Rose castile soap at home but I don't see anything wrong with it. Is it the scent that you don't like? I find it pleasant.

    1. Nothing wrong with it just other scents I prefer!

  3. Ooh Sandra, I share your enthusiasm for a number of these empties. I love the Espa tinted moisturiser. A lighter coverage which suits my skin down to the ground. I really enjoyed the Burt's Bees hand cream too. I got mine in the last You Beauty advent calendar, I think. And I really need to try Skin & Tonic - keep hearing such great things. Tx

    1. :) I'll defo buy the ESPA at some point. The Burt's Bees came as a LIB luxe sample. You'd love Skin&Tonic! x

  4. Ooh I'll have to add a Korres body scrub to my wishlist! I recently tried their shower gel for the first time and the Guava scent is just delicious xx
