mid -october empties

Hi Guys! 

In today's post I have some empties to share with you, these are the products I've used up during the end of September and Beginning of October. 

1. Organic Surge Fresh Ocean Light Body Lotion 
I did like this body lotion, the cream absorbs into the skin well, leaving is moisturised without feeling greasy, you only need to use a small amount as a little goes a long way, the only thing I wasn't too keen on was the scent of this body lotion however they have few other body lotions so I will give them a try. If you would like to read my full review you can click here.
Cruelty-Free: Yes
Repurchase: Yes 

2. The Body Shop Honey Moisturising Conditioner 
This conditioner is rather old so I'm not sure body shop even sell it any more. I did like it, my hair felt soft after use and less tangled, but I didn't love it, I prefer the rainforest forest hair butter from The Body Shop compared to this conditioner. 
Cruelty-Free: Yes (Parent Company Tests on Animals) 
Repurchase: No 

3. Trevor Sorbie Moisture Shampoo 
I'm so glad to have this shampoo finished and gones, I don't think there was anything I liked about it. 
Cruelty-Free: No
Repurchase: No 

4. Superdrug Heart On Your Sleeve Dry Shampoo 
This dry shampoo works well, however I am moving towards more chemical free products so I won't repurchase. 
Cruelty-Free: Yes (Parent Company Tests on Animals) 
Repurchase: No 

5. Lollia Mint Julep Giftset 
This little gift set came with a shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and handcream, The handcream I had at work and forgot to bring it's hence not in the picture and currently in the bin. All the products in this set came beautifully packaged, and smelt absolutely gorgeous and fresh. However the products themselves were only okayish. 
Cruelty-Free: Yes 
Repurchase: No 

6. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser 
I love this skin cleanser, I have been using it everyday for the past 10 months, it works very well for me, and I do have another one the same size to get through, however after that I won't be repurchasing because it does contain parabens and cetaphil is not a cruelty-free company. 
Cruelty-Free: No
Repurchase: No 

7./8. The White Company Shampoo and Conditioner 
I took these products with me when I went away but I took a picture a picture of them before throwing them away, they are in handy size to take away, they are mediocre products that do the job, but nothing I would run out to purchase. 
Cruelty-Free: No 
Repurchase: No 

I also gave away my Bobbi Brown Mauve Face Palette, which I had never used, I didn't have a chance to take a picture of it but it's in my makeup sort out post

Now for the all important count...
