July Empties #2


I seem to be working my way quite well through products recently, though this doesn't bode well for my purse! Here's what I used up this month and whether I'd re-purchase.

Organic Surge Tropical Bergamot Shower Gel 250ml* - £4.35
If you're looking for a new summery scented shower gel then I highly recommend checking this one out! It's fruity, but the bergamot gives it some warmth. It's SLS free but lathers up really well, so the bottle lasts just as long as a SLS formula. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes I would, but I've bought the Ocean Fresh scent to try instead.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Oil Free 30ml - £19.00
I love this primer - the formula is creamy, which means it looks and feels just like a moisturiser. It is designed to help with oil control but help combat surface dehydration at the same time, which works really well on my oily/combo skin. Plus it gives me about 7-8 hours foundation wear. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes I already have.

The Body Shop Chocomania Body Scrub 50ml - worth £3.25
This 50ml pot came in a set so is not available to purchase separately, but can be bought in a 200ml size. I enjoyed using this - it has a sweet chocolate scent and the grains are concentrated enough to make me feel like my skin was getting a decent scrub.
Re-purchase? Maybe. I'm now using Flake Away by Soap and Glory.

Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm 2ml - FREE (worth approx. £0.29)
I managed to get two or three uses out of this balm after wanting to try it for ages! The formula feels more like a gel than a balm, which then emulsifies when you add water. It removed my makeup so effectively and left my skin soft and hydrated.
Purchase full size? Yes.

Suti Cleanse Balm 4ml* - worth approx. £1.12
This came in a recent Love Me Beauty box. It was nice, but the formula is more oil based and it took longer to remove it all from my skin, so I prefer the Merumaya one.
Purchase full size? No.

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Extra Light Bisque 1.4g - £19.00
I used this product every day and the tiny pot lasted a whole year - so it's a really good value purchase. I use it under my eyes before a heavier duty concealer to neutralise darkness and it works fabulously. I love it. Full review here.
Re-purchase? 100%!

Organic Surge Orange Flower Toner 200ml* - £6.50
There are skincare products that are simple and fuss free but just work and this is one of them. It refreshes, soothes, hydrates, re-balances and preps my skin for a serum or facial oil, all with 98.89% natural ingredients. I can't believe it's so cheap! Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes I already have.

Pixi Glow Tonic 250ml - £16.00
If you've read my blog for awhile you'll know I love this exfoliating toner. I find best results come with using it daily - the regular exfoliation means it helps with breakouts and scarring, which is fantastic. I use it after cleansing and follow with the Organic Surge toner mentioned above. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Of course!

What products have you used up this month ? Do you use any of the makeup/skincare mentioned above?

  8. Where to start Sasha! Still want to try the Pixi Glow. Love the sound of the Laura Mercier Primer and the Bobbi Brown corrector - I'm using similar products from Mally Beauty. And please don't tempt me with another shower product - I own a ridiculous amount - can't buy any more just yet! xx

  10. The LM Primer is something I've wanted to try for ages but never have got round to it as i thought it was more expensive! It's dangerous knowing its more affordable than i thought and if you're a fan i almost surely will be!!

    1. The LM primer does come in a bigger size... I think 50ml, which is probably what you've seen. Not everywhere seems to stock the 30ml I think (I got mine from Urban Retreat). The same sort of products seem to work for us don't they, so hopefully you would be a fan too! xx
