September Empties 2020

Space NK UK 
Another month has flown by so that can only mean it's time to go through my empties. There's not many this month but you'll see a fair few tubes that I've cut open to get out every last bit of product! Always a sign that I love it.

Kate Somerville Goat Milk cleanser (bought myself, available from Space NK and Cult Beauty for £32) - This is such a luxurious cleanser. It's thick and creamy with a gorgeous vanilla scent. I only ever use it as a second cleanse. It leaves skin feeling soft and nourished. Love it.
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Do I recommend it? Yes
Will I repurchase? Already have. This will always be in my skincare stash! 


Elemis Peptide4 Thousand Flower Mask (bought myself, available from Feel Unique & Look Fantastic for £37) - This is such an unusual mask! It's a gorgeous light, fluffy mousse texture. It contains peat, clay and peptides which all work together to leave skin looking clear and bright.
Marks out of 10: 7/10
Do I recommend it? Yes
Will I repurchase? Probably not as I find it very similar to Fresh Black Tea Firming mask which I prefer.


Drunk Elephant Cocomino Shampoo & Conditioner (bought myself, available from Space NK & Cult Beauty for £21 each) - These are a lovely shampoo and conditioner. They have a light marzipan scent which I love. They leaves hair feeling soft and lightweight. 
Marks out of 10: 7/10
Do I recommend them? Yes
Will I repurchase? No because I no longer support the brand for numerous reasons (google Drunk Elephant drama, you'll see why!).


Bioglan Beauty Collagen gummies (bought myself, available HERE for £14.20) - I've been taking these for months now. They're my favourite way to take collagen. They taste just like sweets! I notice a huge difference in  my nails when taking collagen - they're much stronger and grow longer.
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Do I recommend them? Yes
Will I repurchase? Already have.


Allies of Skin Molecular Silk Amino Hydrating Cleanser (bought myself, available from Space NK, Cult Beauty & Feel Unique for £37) - You can read my full review of this HERE but to recap - this is an absolutely gorgeous cleanser! So thick with a beautiful consistency. It hydrates skin brilliantly.
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Do I recommend it? Yes
Will I repurchase? Yes already have. 


Mitchum deodorant (bought myself, available HERE for £3.20) - This is my go to deodorant. It's effective and has a light fresh scent that isn't overpowering.
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Do I recommend it? Yes
Will I repurchase? Already have.


Virtue Restorative Treatment Mask (sample, available from Space NK & Cult Beauty for £28) - This is a thick, creamy mask that smells amazing. It left my hair feeling super soft and silky.
Marks out of 10: 8/10
Do I recommend it? Yes
Will I purchase? Probably not as I short hair that doesn't really need a deep condition. If I still had long hair, I would buy it.


REN Atlantic Kelp & Microalgae Anti-Fatigue Bath Oil (bought myself, available from REN Skincare, Space NK and Cult Beauty for £29) - This is nice enough but didn't particularly wow me. Smells fresh and left my skin soft. I didn't particularly notice any anti-fatigue benefits though.
Marks out of 10: 6/10
Do I recommend it? Yes
Will I repurchase? No, there's other bath products that I prefer.


Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Nourishing Body Polish (bought myself, available HERE for £15.69 for Beauty Pie members) - If you're not familiar with Beauty Pie, you can read my review HERE. This is a beautiful body scrub. It so gentle, it's not rough on skin at all. It has a lovely fresh, citrus scent. It's really nourishing too as it's oil based.
Marks out of 10: 9/10
Do I recommend it? Yes
Will I repurchase? Yes.


Allies of Skin Peptides & Antioxidants Firming Daily Treatment (bought myself, available from Space NK, Cult Beauty and Feel Unique for £105) - You can read my full review of this HERE but to recap - This is such a sad empty! It's one of the best moisturisers I've ever used. I've pretty much used nothing else since opening this. I prefer it as an AM cream as it's fairy lightweight but still keeps my skin well hydrated throughout the day. It's expensive but definitely worth the splurge in my opinion.
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Do I recommend it? If it's in your budget, most definitely!
Will I repurchase? Yes in the future. I had to stop myself from buying it again now as I would have opened it straight away and I have others to test instead. 


Jordan Samuel Skin The After Show Treatment Cleanser (bought myself, available from Cult Beauty for £20) - This is a beautiful gel to oil cleanser - probably my favourite of this type! It has a gorgeous fruity scent. It's texture makes it perfect to destroy makeup and SPF quickly and easily whilst staying round long enough to give your face a good massage. Love it.
Marks out of 10: 10/10
Do I recommend it? Yes
Will I repurchase? Yes already have!


Boho Cosmetics Stress Relief whipped body butter (bought myself, available HERE for £4.95) - This is a super thick body butter that melts beautifully when warmed between hands. It's super nourishing and comforting. This scent is a gorgeous blend of essential oils designed to relax you.
Marks out of 10: 7/10
Do I recommend it: Yes
Will I repurchase? No, it's a bit too rich for my taste. I prefer lightweight products for my body. Purely personal preference. I highly recommend the whipped body washes from this brand too - they're incredible. 


Kate Somerville Squalane + Hyaluronic serum (bought myself from T.K Maxx for £19.99) - I've not got on with this, so I'm passing it on. It wasn't what I expected at all. It's a milky serum that has quite a silicone feel. It was fairly hydrating but I just wasn't keen on the texture. 
Marks out of 10: 5/10
Do I recommend it? Yes, it's personal preference as to why I don't like it rather than it being a bad product.
Will I repurchase? No.



And that's it for this month! Thanks for reading.
