March Empties #3

Every month I'm emptyin'... beauty products that is! I'm a bit late posting March's empties (I only went and got married didn't I) but better late than never. I've been pretty good at not buying new products that I already have lots of, so every month I feel like I'm denting my stash a little and boy does it feel good! Here's what I used up in March.


I'll be honest, I bought this scrub purely based on the scent and it didn't disappoint; the sweet lime scent is so invigorating and refreshing. The scrub itself is made up of brown sugar, macadamia grains and almond oil, which is a really nice formula but not quite scrubby enough for me.
Re-purchase? I'm not sure - I love the scent though, so maybe the shower gel would be a better bet.

This is one of the best natural, SLS free shampoo and conditioner duos I've tried to date and has a gorgeous, zingy scent. For normal to oily hair, these did me so well when I started extending the period between hair washes by a day, as it purified my locks without stripping them. Full review here.
Re-purchase? I would in the future, but I've bought an OGX duo to try instead. 

I have a full review coming up of this dry shampoo as I also have two of the other scents from the range. It's not the cheapest dry shampoo out there, but it's pretty darn good. Rio has a reviving, tropical scent - as you can tell from the three products so far I do love my citrus notes!
Re-purchase? Yes

Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer 30ml - £19.00
This is the second tube I've used up of the oil free version of the Laura Mercier primer. It doesn't break me out and feels just like a moisturiser; Vitamins A, C and E equal a smooth and hydrating base for my foundation and about 7-8 hours wear. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Already have!

Claudia Louch Protective Jojoba Day Moisturiser 40ml* - £52.50
I'm so sad that this has ran out, because it's one of the best moisturisers I've tried. It suited my oily/combination skin so well, keeping it re-balanced for longer and containing Jojoba Seed Oil to help with inflammation! I just wish I could afford to re-purchase it. Full review here.
Re-purchase? Sadly no.

Bee Good Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser 100ml - £11.50
If you're looking for a gentle, makeup removing cream cleanser, then this is a brilliant, purse friendly option. Containing Honey, Propolis and Beeswax, it feels soft and nourishing on the skin and smells amazing too.
Re-purchase? I'm using a Green People one at the moment, but I'd definitely buy this again.

What products have you used up this month? Are you a fan of any of the above products?

  5. I'd definitely get the Sugar Crush shower gel if I were you, I think the scent is better in the shower gel compared to the scrub :) oh how I miss that smell.

  7. I am really interested in trying that dry shampoo!
    I like Faith in Nature shampoos and conditioners, I've tried several in the past and my favourite conditioner from them is Ginkgo Biloba.

  8. That 2-in-1 cleanser sounds SO lovely. Btw, I'm literally dying to see your wedding snaps and hear more about your big day. I'm so desperate to see a snap that I told my other half and made him promised we'd take a wedding day selfie for the world to see - just in case anyone feels the same about my big day as I do about yours! hahaha! Congratulations again!

  9. I love the Co-lab dry shampoo and how it leaves no white residue. Sadly the Laura Mercier Oil-free primer didn't do it for me.
