Empties September 2014.

Here are my Empties for September. These are all the miniatures and travel sizes I have used up in the last month. I have kept all my full sized products to one side as I am still carrying on with the #beautychallenge10. I was a bit worried I wouldn't have much to post, but there is more here than I thought.
Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm (40mls) was a freebie from a magazine. I am a big fan of Balance Me products and this cleansing balm is no exception. I love how soft my skin feels after using this. I have a mountain of cleansers to use, but this is definitely on my wish list.
Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Sample (5mls) Weleda is another tried and trusted brand. This is a very light moisturiser that was fine for Summer, but I don't think I would get away with it over Winter. I have their Almond Soothing Facial Cream lined up to try next.
Odylique Superfruit Concentrate (5mls) I really feel like I have had my money's worth from this sample. It has lasted me ages. I absolutely love this serum, and already have the full size to use. Will review in full soon.
Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Rose Face Mask (15mls) this is a lovely mask to use. I have another of the sample sets that this was part of. Not sure if I will buy the full size as I have a few masks I need to use.
Melvita Apicosma Baume Fondant Corps (15mls) this is one of the few Melvita products I am not that fussed on. It was OK, just not blown away by it.
Pure Thoughts Tangerine & Jojoba Whipped Shea Body Butter (10g) is utterly divine. I love the fragrance and a little goes a long way. Will purchase the full size in the future. 
Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash (100mls) I love the fragrance of this, and always associate the Bergamot fragrance with Summer. I find it a very refreshing scent. I have to say I haven't noticed any toning effect from the shower gel, but I do find it very gentle on my skin. I have another sample to use, but will buy this again. I also really want to try the body oil at some point.
Balance Me Rose Otto Body Cream (30mls) again this is another really good product. Lovely rose fragrance and feels rich and luxurious without being heavy. I liked this a lot, but prefer the scent of the Toning range.
Bodhi & Birch Jasmine Falls Relaxing Body Moisturiser (40mls). I was very sad to finish this sample off. Jasmine Falls is one of my favourite fragrances from Bodhi & Birch. I have a few more samples of their moisturisers to tide me over for now.
Living Nature Balancing Shampoo (10mls). I have very mixed feelings about this. The shampoo is non foaming which I don't mind, but it was hard to wash out of my hair. I did find it left my hair very soft and shiny, but I think there are other equally effective shampoos. It reminds me of Odylique's shampoo (which is just as effective and cheaper)
Living Nature Balancing Conditioner (10mls) again not convinced by this, It did make my hair really soft and tangle free, but I don't want to spend £18 on a conditioner.


  1. Some of my favourites here. I wasn't a fan of the Living Nature Shampoo & Conditioner x

  2. It's a shame, I like their skin care so much better x

  3. Odylique Superfruit Concentrate & Pure Thoughts Whipped Shea Body Butter are two of my favourites :D

  4. They are absolutely gorgeous products Sarah x
