What's in my bin? - December Empties


It’s that time again for me to blog my trash. Pictured above are my empty bottles from December.

Organic Surge Sugared Almond Shower Gel (review link) - I’ve enjoyed using this shower gel, it doesn’t dry out my skin, has a delicate scent and not too expensive. I will probably repurchase at some point once I get through the stash Santa gave me :) *OS is free from the main controversial ingredients but it is not a pure natural brand it still has questionable ingredients.

Jane Maddern Hand Wash (review link) - this is a nice hand wash, with a pleasant scent and non drying. 

Sophyto Tocotrienol Super Skin Concentrate (review link) - this was a sample bottle that I have finally used up. A little goes a long way. It’s a nice product but the price puts me off repurchasing however, I do recommend if you can afford it.

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment – I have been using this product for years but never blogged about it. I only ever buy the small bottle as I use it occasionally and have short hair so it lasts for months. *this is not a 100% natural brand & not tested on animals.

Balmology Comfort Balm (review link) - it’s taken 12 months to use this up as I need very little plus I tested other balms in between but I always come back to this. It’s perfect for my eczema and I highly recommend. I have already started my second jar of this balm.

Nourish Cleanser (review link) A nice product but not suited to me so I would not repurchase.

Aloe Dent Whitening Toothpaste – This was a GWP sample. I was pleasantly surprised I haven’t switched to a free from toothpaste so this was my first experience. It has a nice minty taste and I would consider buying the full size.

Unique Nature Shampoo (review link) - a nice shampoo that I picked up at TK Maxx. Worth a try if you can track it down.

Sarakan Mouthwash (review link) - I have been buying this mouthwash for a year may be longer. It’s a firm favourite for me and I will continue to repurchase.

Naturtint (review link) - not pictured here as I forgot but I am still colouring my hair every 6 to 8 weeks. I am trying to go longer between applications to limit my chemical exposure (don't tell me to switch to semi permanent colours as they don't cover my greys).I have found natural shampoos are helping to keep my colour for a little longer.

    1. I haven't used them in one month, it's just what is empty by the end of December. If you read the Balmology has been on the go for 12 months!

  2. I wonder would should I be using Nutritint, I have an extremely itchy and sensitive scalp, I normally use a permanent dye every 4 weeks

    1. Nuritint is not chemical free they have taken away some but it still contain PPD which is believed to be the cause of reactions for some people. A semi permanent colour from an all natural brand may be a better option for you. Always patch test before applying any dye. Have you tried switching out to an SLS/SLES free shampoo/conditioner in order to combat your scalp issues?

    2. Ive been using green people shampoo and conditioner but my hair is so dry now, I cant seem to find something that caters to my hair and scalp suitably

    3. Something I have experienced myself it seems SLS free can be hit or miss depending on brand. I use Organic Surge Moisture Boost shampoo & Giovanni 50/50 conditioner. Barefoot Botanical hair care is good for sensitive scalps but I can't see it on their website :( Let me do some tweeting see if we can find you something to use

  5. I liked the product from Sophyto. I also bought a sample size. My skin it is a little bit to dry for it though but I use it on my neck.
    Macademia Healing oil a heard a lot about, but with so much chemicals in and syntethic parfume I looking for something more natural.
    Enjoy your post with a lot of products! :-)

    1. Since I don't use the macadamia oil daily & in very small amounts on the ends of hair I make allowances for it not being completely natural. Now I have used this bottle up I have a reason to test something new :)

    1. Waitrose or direct from their website are good places to find it. If you haven't read my review then please be aware it is not a pure natural brand simply what I refer to as Free From :)

  7. I have the Organic Surge Sugared Almond Shower Gel at home but not allowed to start on it until I've finished some of the (four) open ones I have on the go already!
    Can't wait to crack it open properly though as it smells lovely!

  8. The Organic Surge shower gels sounds like it smells good :) I'm a big fan of the Macadamia Healing Oil stuff but sometimes wished I had short hair so that it would last longer! x
