March Empties: Products I've Used Up
The days seem to be blurring into one another at the moment which made me completely forget about posting my monthly beauty empties! Fear not, March's round-up is below - here's what I've finished off recently and which products I'll be repurchasing again. 

Tropic Summer Skin Gradual Tanning Lotion* (reviewed here)
Tropic's Summer Skin lotion is one of my favourite gradual tanning products and I've lost count of how many tubes I've gone through of these over the past few years! It's a tinted body lotion so you can see where you're applying it and it soon disappears into the skin after you've rubbed it in. I find it very moisturising and within a couple of days of applying it, you'll start to see a gorgeous, natural-looking tan appear. Repurchase? Definitely.

Lyonsleaf Calendula Cream* (reviewed here)
Like virtually everyone else in the UK, my hands have become drier than the Sahara thanks to a more rigorous hand-washing routine, but luckily this award-winning pot of magic from Lyonsleaf has helped enormously to restore essential hydration. Calendula Cream is fantastic for eczema flareups too and a tiny amount goes a long, long way. Repurchase? Already have!

Fushi BioVedic Enzyme Face Wash* (reviewed here)
This is a light gel-based cleanser from Fushi which has tiny, natural exfoliating particles to gently buff away dead skin cells and leave your complexion looking clearer and brighter. Repurchase? Probably not as I kept using it on and off over the past year, and there are other similar products that I use more often.

REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream*
I love REN's Evercalm range for sensitive skin and their Global Protection Day Cream is perfect for when my skin is playing up. It has a beautiful formula that sinks right in and gives me the hydration that I need without overloading my skin. Repurchase? Yes.

Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum* (reviewed here)
Regular readers will know that I'm a big fan of Antipodes and regularly use several of their products often in my skincare routine. Worship is an amazing water-based serum which is ideal for those who are starting to see the first signs of ageing. Repurchase? Definitely.

March Empties: Products I've Used Up
Ogario Revive & Shine Shampoo*
Brilliant SLS-free shampoo from Ogario for hair that needs an added boost and some extra shine. Always delivers soft and glossy results so it does what it says on the label! I also found it to be a concentrated formula so this bottle lasted me a good while. Repurchase? I've recently switched to this plastic-free shampoo bar but I may consider buying it again in the future.

Botanicals Gentle Cleanse Melt(reviewed here)
I really enjoyed using this balm cleanser from Botanicals. It has a thick and rich texture but easily melts into the skin for a good massage and proper deep cleanse. Removes all traces of makeup, sunscreen and daily grime/pollution with no greasy residue afterwards. Repurchase? Yes.

The Humble Co Natural Charcoal Toothpaste
Discovered this natural toothpaste in a beauty box and I absolutely love the ethics of this brand who donate dental products to less fortunate children all over the world. Results-wise, this SLS-free toothpaste did the job and the charcoal formula helps to remove everyday stains. Repurchase? I'm currently using this plastic-free alternative from Ben & Anna, but again, I may repurchase in the near future.

Bali Balm Cinnamon & Burnt Orange Lip Balm(reviewed here)
I've used a few different flavours of Bali Balm and Cinnamon & Burnt Orange is a firm favourite. Lovely hydrating balm that keeps chapped lips at bay. Repurchase? Hopefully in the future when my lip balm stash has decreased a bit!

REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash
A really luxurious body wash, I adore everything from REN's Moroccan Rose Otto range because it just smells incredible! Lathers up well for a relaxing spa-time feeling at home. Repurchase? Yes.

P.S - How To Recycle Your Beauty Empties!
All of the glass and easy-to-recycle plastic PET empties will be put into my council's blue bin kerbside recycling scheme, but for the harder-to-recycle stuff, I will be:-
  • Recycling the pumps and atomisers with Neal's Yard Remedies - more info at the bottom of their website here.
  • Recycling any other products that my local council doesn't accept, such as flexible plastic tubes at The Body Shop, L'Occitane or with Garnier's Terracycle partnership - more info here.
