November Empties

It's official! I am addicted to beauty products!  Here are my November empties.

Bareminerals Purifying Facial Cleanser and Purely Nourishing Moisturiser double sachet - for combination skin -  I really loved the moisturiser and may purchase this at some point.

Korres Lemon Body Milk - from the last Boudoir Prive box - loved this would re-purchase.

Vaseline Intensive Care Deodorant - like the fact that this one doesn't sting and a neutral scent.

Deep Steep Foaming Handwash - Tangerine & Melon 249ml - quite a nice handwash, a foam rather than a gel took a bit of getting used to but it smelt lovely and fruity (had just about finished this by end October).

Sanctuary Spa Relax Warming Body Oil 15ml x 1 - supposedly single use - this lasted me twice.  Would probably repurchase as nice product (and good gift - comes in set of five).

John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk 30ml - this was part of a travel set of four (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body milk).  Nice product would re-purchase.

REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil 110ml - my most favourite bath oil in the world!  Will definitely re-purchase.

Morroccanoil for fine & light coloured hair 25ml - bought the smaller size to try, loved it and have bought the full size since.  I'll keep the little bottle to decant from the larger one for travel.

Garnier BB Cream sachet - light - fab sample - love this product - will purchase full size at some point (when I finish up other foundations/tinted moisturisers).

Jimmy Choo Perfumed Shower Gel 150ml - lush product with the gorgeous scent of Jimmy Choo.  Was a birthday gift - would re-purchase (I also got the body lotion which was gorgeous too but finished it before I started blogging).

Elemis Pro-Collagen Lifting Treatment for Neck and Bust 15ml - this was from the Breast Cancer Awareness Set in October - love this product.

Elemis Melting Cleansing Gel 125ml - quite liked this product though it was a pain you can't use it on the eye area.  For this reason alone I probably wouldn't re-purchase, but other than that a really good product.

Dr Organic Rose Otto Body Wash 250ml - nice product with good scent (I love rose scents) and lather will re-purchase.  Dr Organic range can be bought at Holland & Barratt, in a range of scents.

Origins Incredible Spreadable Ginger Body Scrub 100ml - love this, its always on my Christmas Wish List - it smells divine.  Although I think this one was free with Grazia magazine.

Cetuem SCR Gold Creme de Lite 5ml - from Boudoir Prive - okay cream and smelt nice but didn't wow me.  Wouldn't purchase.

Molton Brown Parasdisiac Pink Peppercorn Bath and Shower Gel 100ml - love Molton Brown products (usually scent of choice is Heavenly Gingerlily) but decided to try another - okay scent but wouldn't repurchase though great quality product.

Giorgio Armani Regenessence Multi-corrective Rejuvenating Cream 3ml - lovely product but mega bucks.  £75 full size.  Smells amazing though and really feels like it works.

Body Shop Morroccan Rose Shower Gel 60ml/Body Lotion 60ml - lovely scent, would re-purchase.

Elemis Quiet Mind Relaxing Bath Elixir - De-stress Bath Soak 100ml - really nice product would re-purchase full size. Smells great and really relaxing after a stressful day.

Caudalie Cleansing Water 50ml - this was quite a nice product - would be good for holidays (and kept in the fridge).

Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Body Oil 1.2ml sample - I'd always wanted to try this but wasn't really impressed, was ok product, scent was of lilies and I didn't really like it.  Though I'd like to try the lip balm in this range.

Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath 125ml - love this for use in the bath or neat as a body moisturiser for dry skin areas.  Normally pick this in GWP deals.

Palmolive Milk & Honey Handwash 300ml - picked this up in the supermarket for 60p - nice product.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 15ml - love, love, love this cream!

Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel 75ml - a good cleanser would probably re-purchase.

I also finished the Prada Candy EDP sample from Feel Unique box - a full size bottle is on my Christmas wish list, a Bamford Organics mini soap in Rose - smells beautiful and creates lots of lather.  What products have you been using up this month? x


  1. I'm sat here with my mouth open at the amount of stuff you used this month! lol I only got through 4 things, done a blog about them.

  2. @Been There, Done That, Got the Lipstick, don't be too shocked, quite a lot of the products were nearly finished and the elemis melting cleansing gel, for instance, I'd had for about a year! x

  3. Wow uve gone through loads :O, I really want to try out the morrocanoil! ive herd good things about this may have to purchase x

  4. @zoelou, the morrocanoil is great, really love it x

  5. Wow! I keep meaning to pick up a bottle of the Dr Organic Rose Otto wash because I love rose scents. I'll put up my empties post tomorrow though it's not as amazing as yours :) x


  6. Wow, well done!!
    The Elemis Nourishing Milk Bath sounds interesting. I'm always on the lookout for new bath products.
    I've also had a sample of Prada Candy and requested it for Christmas - hope Santa brings me it!

  7. @Evelyn, the Dr Organic range is great (the rose otto bath oil is a good dupe for REN). Will look forward to your empties post. x

    @Victoria, its really a nice product - I think its one of Elemis's best sellers. I have asked Santa for Prada Candy too! x

  8. Wow!!!! How much money are you spending per month on this luxurious skincare treatment?


  9. @Livia, its mainly stuff I am currently using (or have hoarded away!) though I do buy a few bits and get the beauty boxes x

  10. You've got through loads this month! When I've finished my spending ban, I must try Elemis. I'm also holding out for the sales for a few beauty gift set boxes - I picked up some Clarins last year and they're great value. Nice to see someone else who attacks tubes of products with scissors - I always try to get the last bit out! x

  11. @TheBristolBeautyBlog, Elemis is fab, would recommend just about all their products! They have some great priced Christmas gift boxes out. I have an addiction about getting the last bit of product out ;) x

  12. I love seeing your empties every month :) you made me want to start doing my own and until I did my own I always thought how can one person go through so much! But you don't know how much you use until you see it! Haha my December empties bag is half full already :s

  13. @Claire Louise, thanks! It's amazing how much you actually get through! Will look forward to seeing your December post x
