November Empties

Here are my empties for November:

Abahna Frangipani & Orange Blossom Bath & Shower Gel and Body Lotion both 100ml - love this scent and these products. I treated myself to a gift set in this scent at the weekend.  You can read my mini review here.

Abahna Body Lotion sachets (5ml) in White Grapefruit & May Chang, Mandarin & Sicilian Bergamot and Lilac Rose & Geranium x 2 - all gorgeous.  I especially liked the White Grapefruit & May Chang.

Pure Thoughts Lime & Tangerine Bath Bomb - this was lovely and quite strongly scented with lime and tangerine.  This came from the Christmas Box which you can see here.  I'd buy again.

Sebastian Volupt Volume Boosting Shampoo 10ml sachet - this was nice to use, got two uses from the sachet but unsure if I'd purchase as there are shampoos I prefer.

Sebastian Hydre Deep Moisturising Treatment 10ml sachet - again nice to use but there are hair treatments I prefer.

Berkeley Square Royal Ballet Body Conditioner 6ml sachet - nice scent and I like the gel like texture but probably wouldn't buy.

NEOM Real Luxury Bath Oil 5ml - gorgeous! would love to buy again.  Really relaxing.

Molton Brown Relaxing Yuan zhi Bath & Shower 30ml - this was nice enough but I didn't love the scent so wouldn't purchase.

Caudalie Vinexpert Firming Serum 7ml - this came in the Caudalie Latest in Beauty Box.  Lovely.  Would perhaps purchase.

Milla Maddern Tranquility Body Wash 100ml - see my review here.  Scented with Lavender, Geranium and Mandarin.  This was really lovely to use and I loved the mix of essential oils.  I'll definitely purchase at some point.

Madara Deep Balance Toner 5ml sachet - this was a nice toner - I  got two uses out the sachet.  I'd maybe purchase in the future.

OV Naturals mini Triple Rose Facial Oil 10ml - see my review here.  I probably will not buy again as I've fallen in love with the Bodhi Desert Rose Rejuvenating Face Oil but the oil was lovely to use.

Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Creme 15ml - this was in a GWP offer earlier in the year.  Lovely to use, a real luxury cream.  Full size retails around the £170 mark! So I won't be purchasing.

Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil vial - love mythic oil. Will perhaps purchase at some point once I get through my current oils.

YSL Shocking Effet Faux Cils 2ml - a great mascara and will purchase full size at some point.

Clarins Extra-Firming body Lotion 100ml - lovely to use with a nice scent.  Would perhaps purchase.  This was a GWP size.

Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel 30ml - love this.  Will definitely pick up full size - especially now they are stocked in Harvey Nics!

Bliss lid+lash wash make up remover 30ml - this was a nice product but I've got cleansers that do the job just as well so wouldn't repurchase.

Murad Intensive Wrinkle Reducer 7ml - this was a freebie with Marie Claire magazine.  Another product which is very expensive full size.  I could feel it tightening the skin upon application but I hated the scent so wouldn't consider purchasing.

Liz Earle Botanical Essence No.15 2ml vial - I got this with an online Liz Earle order.  Gorgeous, will definitely purchase at some point.

REN Moroccan Oil Rose Otto Bath Oil 30ml - one of my favourite bath oils.  Will definitely purchase full size at some point.

Dr Organic Lavender Skin Lotion 30ml - I reviewed this lotion here.  I quite enjoyed using it especially before bed but I'm unsure whether I'd purchase as it does smell quite strongly of lavender.

No.7 Protect & Perfect Intense Overnight Hand Treatment 75ml - I got this with a £5 off No.7 voucher - I'd definitely pick it up again with the money off voucher.  A really nice hand cream.

Bamford Geranium Bath Oil 30ml - my last mini one - sob! I'll buy this full size soon.  Just adore this bath oil. Super-soothing and relaxing.

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream 7ml - picked this up as a Glamour magazine freebie.  It is super moisturising but I didn't really feel it did anything for dark circles etc.  Wouldn't purchase.

REN Active 7 Radiant Eye Gel 5ml - nice enough product but didn't love it enough that I'd buy it full size.

Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo 10ml - really liked this would consider buying full size.  It made my hair look so smooth (used along with the conditioner/smoothing treatment).
