September empties/Project bathroom update

A bit of an over due post, as most of these products were used up in August, but none the less, I'm really pleased with how many products I've managed to get through these last few month:
Simple kind to skin hydrating light moisturiser
Burt's Bees shea butter & vitamin E body lotion
Dove hydro nourishment body lotion
Alberto Balsam strawberries and cream shampoo
Klorane gentle dry shampoo
Liz Earle gentle face exfoliator
Neutrogena visibly clear pink grapefruit oil free moisturiser
Elemis fresh skin peachy perfect gentle face wash
Lush coolaulin conditioner
Alpha H age delay cleansing oil
Carmex mint lip balm
Molton Brown paradisiac pink pepperpod bath &shower gel
VO5 miracle concentrate 
L'occitane cocoa flower hand cream
Benefit they're real mascara
Jainnisa all day revitalising hand cream

I find with project bathroom, some months it's a real struggle to get through anything, and other times everything seems to finish at once. This was definitely one of those months, but despite that, I would actually repurchase most of the items listed above. Special mentions go to the Liz Earle exfoliator, which felt super gentle yet effective, and the Benefit mascara, which really did help to lenghen and volumise. I was also sad to finish the Alpha H cleansing oil and Molton Brown shower gel, both of which are now on my Christmas wish list.

Of the 17 items, there were only 3 that I didn't like. I wasn't keen on the scent of the Burts Bees body lotion, although it was very nourishing and did a good job of keeping my legs moisturised. The Alberto Balsam shampoo was completely wrong for my hair type and I found the fragrance rather sickly. Finally I thought the Lush conditioner was too watery, and once again, the smell was really off putting.

How are you getting on with project bathroom?What will you be putting on your Christmas wishlist?


  1. Well done! I love these kinds of posts :) x

  2. I love these empties posts :) its always a bit sad when you finish a product you love !

    Beautiful Dreams

    1. It is sad, but quite exciting too, as it means I can start using something new x

  3. Wow that's a lot of products! I am finding that I am finishing up everything at the moment which is good as I have far too many products. x

    1. Haha thanks, they just all finished at once! It's actually fun to be 'shopping the stash' x

  4. You have used up quite alot of products and i'm really impressed. It always takes me so long to finish products because i hop between different ones and i need to learn to use things more religiously. I have however, recently finished the Vo5 miracle concentrate..but i am not planning to repurchase because i want to try out the new L'oreal one hehe. Can't wait until christmas when there are many deals on beauty products :) Thanks for sharin xxx

    1. The L'oreal hair oil is really nice and I would definitely recommend. Well done for finishing the VO5 hair oil though. I picked up the Boots catalogue yesterday and they've got some lovely products this Christmas :) x

  5. Is the Alpha H Cleansing Oil a new product or have I just missed the memo about it? My empty pile looks the same this month I've got through loads of shower gels!

    1. It's one of their newer products, but it has been out for a few months. I've done a blog review if you'd like to find out more :) Well done for finishing so many products too x
