Empties October 2017

Hello, hello!

Today I have my stash of empties for October – I think I made good progress in using things up this month!

October 2017 Empties

Maui Moisture Revive + Hydrate Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner – This worked really well for my thick, wavy, frizz-prone hair. I just purchased the Strength + Anti-Breakage Agave Shampoo and Conditioner to try out instead of repurchasing this one. Review is here.

October 2017 Empties

Ahimsa Naturals Solid Brush Cleanser in Rosemary & Lavender – This was a great brush cleanser, it took me almost 2.5 years to use up. If I can find this locally, I’ll repurchase. Review is here.

Saje Natural Wellness Stress Relief Diffuser Blend – Once I use up a few more of the essential oils in my stash, this will be one of the ones that I will be repurchasing as the lavender based scent is so lovely and relaxing. Review is here.

Oct 2017 Empties

Badger Balm Ginger & Lemon Lip Balm – This was a good lip balm, I might repurchase once my stash is used up. This one was never reviewed.

Saje Natural Wellness Lip Balms in Sweet Lips and Tingle Lips – I loved both of these lip balms, and plan to repurchase the next time that I order some Diffuser Blends from Saje. Review is here.

The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer – I liked this primer a lot, but it started to thicken and congeal (GROSS) so I didn’t bother finishing the last bit in the bottle. I don’t think that I will repurchase this one as there are other primers that I’d like to try. Review is here.

Oct 2017 Empties

Neal’s Yard Remedies Frankincense Intense Lift Serum* – I am sad that this one is finished, this might be the most beautiful serum that I’ve ever used. Sadly it is pricy, and I don’t have the budget to repurchase this right now. But it is going to the top of my wishlist! Review is here.

The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% Emulsion – This is one of the best and most affordable retinol serums that I’ve ever used. I’ve already repurchased a back up of this one. Review is here.

The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA – I’ve tried this one and the Buffet, both are peptide serums and both work well. But I don’t need both of them. I’ve already repurchased the Buffet serum. Review is here.

The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% – This made my skin look great, but my skin never adjusted and it always stung when I used it. Instead of repurchasing this one, I am currently testing out the Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% (also from The Ordinary). Review of the Vitamin C Suspension is here, review of the serum is coming later this month.

E Nature Birch Juice Hydro Sleeping Pack – This sample came in my September Ipsy GlamBag. I’ve been occasionally using it a night when I felt like my skin needed a moisture boost. I have so many night creams / sleeping packs on my wish list, that I’m not going to be purchasing a full size of this one at this time. I never actually reviewed this one, but I really liked it.

So there you have it, all the things I’ve managed to use up this month! Have you finished up very many things this month?

Disclosure: All items except for the one marked with * were purchased by me. The product marked with * was a PR sample. Please see original review for details.

  2. I’m impressed! Well done!

    2.5 years to finish that brush cleanser… wow! I bet you’ll miss it. It’s been with you for such a long time.

    All those lip balms and skin care products… wow!

    And I hope Santa will have a new Neal’s Yard serum for you. 🙂

  3. Wow – 2.5 years for that brush cleanser is impressive!

    I’ve gone through a few of those Saje lip balms too, the Coconut one is my favourite; I’ll have to try the Sweet Lips next.

    Great job on the empties this month!
