If you use instagram you have probably seen the #beautychallenge10. If you search the hashtag there are quite a few bloggers doing it. This challenge is to use up 10 full size products before purchasing anything else. Here is my round up of what I got through. 
Dr Organic Pomegranite Deodorant is a lovely, gentle deodorant. It works well, smells nice and doesn't irritate my skin. I already have a back up of this.
Bee Good Honey & Propolis 2 in 1 Cream Cleanser was an absolute joy to use. I am very sad to have finished this cleanser and will definitely buy this again.
Nourish Skincare Protect Smoothing Hand cream is very light, but very moisturising. I love the bright and cheerful citrus fragrance. Hand creams are probably my most hoarded products, but this is on the wish list to buy again.
I have Charlie to from Sophia's Choice  to thank for introducing me to  Bloom Remedies Caramel Lip Balm. The first lip balm I have ever finished. I loved this.
Sweet Cecilys Coconut Body Butter is the perfect Summer fragrance. This is very moisturising and need only be used sparingly. This tub lasted ages. I love the quirky packaging, Have lots of body lotions and oils to use, but will happily repurchase at a later date.
Daily Revive Organic Moisturiser by Bloom Remedies suited my dry skin perfectly. I have another one of these to use. Bloom Remedies is certainly a brand I want to try more from.
Dr Hauschka is another favourite brand and I have loved pretty much everything I have tried by them. The Rose Nuturing Bath Essence is perfect for a bit of girly pampering. I have the almond bath essence to try next. 
There isn't much to say about Dr Bronner's Magic Soaps other than I love them. The are just so gentle on the skin. I have several back ups ready to go, and will purchase again when they run out.
White Rabbits Skin care Lime & Coconut Cleansing Water was an absolute pleasure to use. I adored the lime fragrance. It really is a very good cleanser and costs only £4. Another brand I want to explore further in the future.
Bodhi and Birch Rosemary Chi Bath and shower therapy is another pampering bathing product. I love it's calming fragrance and find a good unisex product. This is a favourite to use when feeling anxious and stressed. It always helps me to feel grounded again. Bodhi and Birch are one of my favourite brands and I made the most of their sales recently and so have quite a few of their products stashed.
I have really enjoyed taking part in this challenge. I have allowed myself a couple of treat purchases, but intend to carry on with the challenge. This has reminded me how many things I do have, so would like to use another 20 products before I buy anything else - although I plan on continuing my box subscriptions.
