September Empties: Products I've Used Up
I'm a little late posting my Empties (I blame the flu!), but I hope this massive post makes up for it as I've used up a hell of a lot of products recently. It's been one of those month's where everything just seemed to run out at once! So here's what I've used up and whether I would repurchase it again or not.

September Empties: Products I've Used Up
REN Wake Wonderful Night Time Facial*
This is my third tube and it's one of my favourite overnight skincare treatments that's packed full of Glycolic and Lactic Acids to exfoliate, hydrate and moisturise. Really does give you glowing skin in the morning and makes my complexion look much brighter. Repurchase? I have a few similar products to use up first, but I'll definitely buy this again.

Aveda Botanical Kinetics Purifying Creme Cleanser
Another product that I've gone through a couple of bottles of is this lovely cream cleanser from Aveda's Botanical Kinetics range, which I'm a big fan of. I love using this in the evenings as it removes all of my makeup easily, and works just as well as a second cleanse or as a light morning cleanser. Repurchase? Will do once I've used up some other cleansers.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular 2-in-1 Cleanser*
If you prefer gel based cleansers, this one is brilliant and like the Aveda one above, can also be used to remove makeup as well as being a wonderfully refreshing morning cleanser. It's got a great organic formula that includes fruit based AHAs and Vitamin C, so it's a great one to try if you have dull skin that you want to brighten up. Repurchase? Definitely will once my cleanser stash is more under control!

NB Labs Bio-Extracts Hydra Boost*
These nifty syringe style boosters from NB Labs are a fantastic way to literally 'boost' your skincare routine as you just add a shot of the serum-like formula to your daily moisturiser and away you go. They do a bunch of different ones and Hydra Boost has been perfect for those times when my skin has been feeling dehydrated or dry. So easy to use and makes a big difference. Repurchase? Yes.

Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion
Eyebright is something that I always use in the Summer months as it's a godsend for puffy eyes when hayfever season hits. This toner style formula instantly soothes and cleans the eye area, getting rid of pollen and other irritants, without the need for using eye drops. Genius stuff. Repurchase? Will do next Spring! 

September Empties: Products I've Used Up
Herbfarmacy Lip Conditioner*
Finally - I've used up a lip balm! I have so many on the go all over the place but this one from Herbfarmacy was a definite favourite. 100% organic, smells like vanilla and is really nice and moisturising. Repurchase? I have far too many to justify buying any more at the moment, but if I ever run out, I would happily pick this up again.

Evolve Organic Beauty Skin Saviour Body Oil*
This is a great oil for using on any kind of scars and marks including stretch marks and old blemish/acne scars, as it helps to reduce the appearance of them over time. Also lovely to use as an all-over body oil and perfect for dry skin. Repurchase? Yes.

NUXE Rose Petals Micellar Cleansing Water
Picked this up in a recent GWP and was excited to try it after reading some positive reviews, but I was pretty underwhelmed with it to be honest. It's nice and gentle on the skin, but doesn't remove all of my eye makeup and struggled to shift high coverage foundation. Repurchase? No.

Malin + Goetz Peppermint Shampoo
I thoroughly enjoyed using this travel size bottle up; it's very refreshing and zingy on the scalp and gives a deep cleanse without using SLS. Lovely stuff! Repurchase? Tempted to splurge on the full-size at some point!

Vita Liberata Self Tanning Anti-Age Serum*
Although I've finished this up, I found this self-tanning serum to be very 'meh'. The colour is great and looks natural, but I didn't see any of the skincare benefits so I'll be sticking with my James Reed and Tropic products when it comes to facial self-tanners in the future. Repurchase? No.

Vichy Ideal Body Serum Milk*
This is a lovely body moisturiser for anyone who hates thick lotions and wants something thinner and more milk like in texture, but still with all the hydrating properties of a thicker lotion. I really liked the fresh and clean scent that this one has. Repurchase? Yes.

September Empties: Products I've Used Up
Tisserand Sweet Dreams Pillow Mist*
Regular readers will now that I have a lot of problems with anxiety and sleeping, so I regularly use pillow sprays like this to help me relax and send me off to sleep. It's not as potent as the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray which is my holy grail, but it's still a very good option if you want to try something more affordable. Repurchase? Yes.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir*
I only seem to reach for this in the Summer months as it's a little drying for me to use any other time of the year, but I do love how revitalising and refreshing it is. A cult classic in the beauty world, I love the awakening citrusy-meets-minty scent, and it instantly perks up tired skin with just one spritz. Repurchase? Will do next Summer.

Weleda Evening Primrose Revitalising Body Wash
I love Weleda's creamy body washes because they're so moisturising for my dry skin and this Evening Primrose scent was gorgeous. Clean, fresh and floral, without being too sweet - perfect! Repurchase? Yes.

Caudalie Premier Cru The Elixir
This is my second bottle and I was just as sad to see it used up as I was when I finished the first one. It's one of those serum-meets-face oil-hybrid types of products, so I often used it when I didn't have time to do a full skincare routine in the evening. Makes my skin wonderfully soft, smooth, hydrated and glowy, what more could you want?! Repurchase? I need to use up some similar products first but I'll definitely be saving up for another bottle!

Caudalie Purifying Mask
Another Caudalie product that I've used up and loved to bits in the past is this Purifying Mask which is brilliant for anyone who has congested and spot-prone skin. It draws out impurities a treat but doesn't dry out the skin, and also helps to rebalance excess sebum, so it comes in really useful over the Summer when my skin is naturally oilier. Repurchase? Will do once I've finished up a couple of other masks.
