Recent Empties: Part Two

In October I wrote about how I’d got out of the habit of posting about my monthly product use-ups, resulting in a back log of Empties which I intended to split across two blog posts. Well finally I’ve got my act together (sort of) to bring you the final installment and today I’ll be giving you the low-down on the products I used over late summer.

Yes To Cucumbers

I’ve followed Yes To since they were relatively new to the market here in the UK and very early on have been a fan of their affordable, effective, natural products.

Yes To Tomatoes

Today I have another review I’ve had in the pipeline and have been meaning to bring to you for quite a while. Yes To is a natural skincare brand based in San Francisco, USA, that I was first introduced to when I received their Cucumber Facial Wipes in my April Birchbox. I’m not normally a fan of facial wipes to be perfectly honest but with their natural formula and the way the wipes gently but effectively removed my makeup my head was turned – I definitely had to explore more from this brand. So I went on a little splurge to see what else I could find!
