October Empties #3

Happy Halloween all! I'm looking forward to my night in watching Hocus Pocus on Netflix... Hope you enjoy your evening whatever you're up to! Moving on now as this isn't at all a Halloween themed post, instead it's the usual end of month empties! 


Neal and Wolf Indulgence Scented Candle* - £17.95
I adore the unique Neal and Wolf scent, but unfortunately for me it just was too subtle in candle form. Full review here.
Re-purchase? No.

Organic Surge Fresh Ocean Shower Gel 250ml - £4.75
My other half used this too - he seems to like Organic Surge's scents! This definitely was fresh - but with a citrus edge as opposed to salty, containing Lemon, Lime and Rosemary. The formula is SLS free but lathers up wonderfully.
Re-purchase? Yes in the future. I'd like to try Sugared Almond next. 

Soap and Glory Archery Brow Tint and Pencil in Love is Blonde - £10.00
Although the shade I have isn't the perfect match colour wise, I really like how easy it is to fill the sparseness in my brows with the tinted felt tip end. It gives a natural finish and lasts all day too. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes.

Green People Pressed Powder SPF15 in Porcelain Pale - £18.86
This has been in quite a few empties posts now because although it's pricey, it's what I look for in a face powder; pressed, talc free, a great shade match and great for setting makeup. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes.

Neal's Yard Bee Lovely Hand Cream 50ml - £10.00
I was quite sad that this run out - the formula is quite thick and creamy for soft, nourished hands and the scent just gorgeous; a mixture of honey and orange essential oil. 
Re-purchase? Yes - but I have too many others to justify buying another right now!

Lush Sunnyside Bubble Bar - £3.75
I have a full review of this ready to post so I won't say too much - but this brightened up my bath experience considerably!
Re-purchase? I would.

Claudia Louch Botanical Firming Toner 40ml* - £37.40 
This cucumber scented toner was refreshing and reviving, but the formula was quite thin so I found myself using more than I would expect to when applying with a cotton pad. It definitely ran out quicker than other similar sized toners I've used in the past. Full review here.
Re-purchase? No.

Elemental Herbology Cell Food Facial Serum 30ml* - £45.00
I neglected this amazing serum for a few months when my skin went through a really bad period and the little bit left has unfortunately gone off. The brightening effects of the serum are noticeable instantly, whilst giving my skin a good dose of hydration for an overall boost. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Yes.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla - £22.00
My first NARS product is an absolute winner - it's super creamy, buildable, blendable, provides fantastic coverage and doesn't go cakey or dry out the skin. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Oh you couldn't stop me!

I've used up a real mixture of products this month. I'd love to know what products you've used up recently?

    1. It's so, so good! The only thing that did annoy me a bit was the fact that the lid detached from the wand after awhile xx

  6. I've been using up all my half empty products as it is an easy way to collect empties! I seem to do it a lot with skincare... I've come to the end of my Bioderma so I'm now trying out some different micellars :)

    1. I have so many skincare products on the go, I'm trying my hardest to rotate them so they don't go past their expiry date like the EH serum :-( xx
