September Au Revoirs

I have loved the past month, the weather has finally started to warm up and I am really looking forward to summer. Though once it is here I will be complaining it is too hot haha. 

Before I get onto the empty products I want to mention two things. Firstly I have a new blog logo (above)! I am very excited about it, the lovely Rebecca from EasyDress made it for me. Secondly I finally got around to making a Facebook page for this blog. I would love for you to go and like the page here

September was really a month of finishing up samples with only two full sized products finished. That being said I am glad to get rid of some of the samples that seem to be piling up everywhere (and I mean everywhere). 

Rexona Women Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant 
This is my Holy Grail deodorant especially coming into the warmer months. This is the fourth one I have used up this year and I have already repurchased it.

Artiste Brush Cleaner
This is the third bottle I have finished this year. I use this between deep cleans on my brushes, to keep them clean and fresh. Already repurchased. 

Batiste Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is a staple product for me. Honestly, sometimes I am just too lazy to wash my hair so this is super handy. This is a sample size from a Lust Have It. Whilst it works, I hate the strong scent. I have repurchased but a different scent. 

Matrix Biolage Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner
Another Lust Have It sample. A nice shampoo and conditioner but not nice enough for me to purchase a full size. Seemed to leave my hair a bit limp and heavy.

A'kin Lavender, Geranium & Jojoba - Hand, Nail & Cuticle Creme
Another subscription box sample. I actually really liked this hand cream, it was moisturising without leaving my hands feeling greasy. I would consider purchasing but I have so many hand creams to use up already. 

Urban Rituelle Organic Hand Cream
I think this came in the very first Lust Have It box and I have only just gotten around to finishing it. Another nice hand cream but the lemony scent isn't my favourite. Wouldn't purchase a full size tube.

Pure Fiji Body Butter Passionflower Infusion
A really nice, nourishing body butter. The scent was a little strong for my liking but a great product.

Pure Fiji Hydrating Body Lotion Coconut Infusion
I LOVED this body lotion. It was quickly absorbed and left my skin feeling so soft and hydrated. The scent is gorgeous and lingers around beautifully. I will purchase this in the future after I have used up some of the millions (slight exaggeration) of body lotions I have.

Eau Thermale Avene Ystheal Emulsion
I really enjoyed this moisturiser sample. It was very hydrating and made a perfect night cream. The only thing that put me off a little is the colour - it looks like mustard! 

YSL Top Secrets Beauty Sleep 
This is an overnight serum treatment, like moisturiser. It felt really nice on the skin though I doubt I would pay the retail price.

What did you finish up in September? Are you enjoying the warmer weather?


  1. Are Pure Fiji products available in Australia?

    1. Head to their website - they list stockists and have an online store you can order from :)
