September | Monthly Beauty Basket Update #empties

Hi, everyone! Welcome to my monthly beauty basket update! Here is a link to the start of my September Beauty Basket if you'd like to check it out.

I created this basket to help me finish up products that are either almost finished or about to expire. I'm constantly rotating products and it makes it difficult to finish anything. This basket has been helping me use up those products.

This is only the second month that I've done this. The last time I did this, it was such a success that I decided to do it again in September. Here is a link to my very first Beauty Basket post.

I had 8 products to finish up this past month. Let's see how I did...

Beauty Basket Before

Beauty Basket After

I managed to finish up 6 out of 8 products. The products that I wasn't able to finish were makeup products- go figure!

Products Used Up!

Products to use up:

1. Pure & Simple Algae Serum - FINISHED
Repurchase- yes

Repurchase- At some point (I'm repurposing the container for other oils that I already have, as it dispenses the perfect amount)
Repurchase- No (It's good but WAY too expensive)
Repurchase- No (I have 2 backups from a sale which I would never have purchased if I knew that these NEVER end!!!)
Repurchase- No
Repurchase- Yes - New one is a bit different- linked here! (full review here)

7. Annabelle Lipsie in Lychee - FINISHED 
Repurchase- Not this colour (Full review here)

Repurchase- Possible (I received the whole set from this line for review purposes. Somehow, it did seem to thicken my skin).

I have not prepared a beauty basket to use up for October. I will be going back to my regular monthly empties for now, as my empties box is already getting quite full. However, I will revisit this again in the future. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I was able to use up in September's Beauty Basket! If you make your own Beauty Basket, I'd love to read about it, please link below! 

Here's to a great October!


  1. I love reading "empty haul's" - makeup is always first to go with me too lol! Thanks for sharing Twitter buddy lol :) !!!

    1. LOL.. too much blog comments synching! I love hauls too. Thanks for coming by, Angie! xo

  2. Great job on the basket this month Amy! Love that you put together this basket that is attainable and not scary to tackle lol

    1. Thanks, Tal. Now my regular empties bin is overflowing!! :z xo

  3. This is such brilliant idea. A great visual way to see what you need to use up, I am going to try this next time I feel like I am stacking up on products that need to be used up. You did really well to use up so much!

    1. Thanks, Jackie! It works so well. I hope it works for you. xo

  4. This is such a great way of focusing on finishing up products!

    1. It sure is but I've had to abandon it for now as my regular empties box is overflowing! xo

  5. Well done girlfriend! Elated to announce that I've FINALLY set up a beauty tray (looks better on my vanity than a basket) and will hopefully get through some of the stuff I've had for ages but never finished xxx

    1. Thanks, Kats! I'm so happy you started a basket. I hope it works well for you. I can't wait to see your beauty tray! xo
