December Empties

Here are my December Empties.  

L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream 15ml - love this lightweight cream although I've found it to be more suited to spring/summer months due to its lightness.  Would definitely buy again.  The scent even grew on me!

Elemis Pro-Collagen Lifting Treatment for Neck & Bust 15ml - this was a GWP freebie.  Lovely product although quite expensive full size.  

Bodhi Mint Thé Refreshing Bath & Shower Therapy 50ml - love this! Will definitely purchase full size at some point.  You can see my review here.

Bodhi Ylang Ylang Incensa Sensual Body Moisturiser 40ml - gorgeous! My review is here.

Sanctuary Spa Hand Wash 250ml - picked this up a few times. Nice scent. Would buy again although I am using NEOM's Complete Bliss hand wash at the moment and it is gorgeous!

Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Shampoo 100ml - I always seem to go through shampoo way before I finish the conditioner.  I reviewed this product here.

Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping Facial Hydrator SPF8 15ml - this was a WIMH freebie.  I loved this geranium scented rich face cream.  One I'll definitely purchase at some point.

Bodhi Jasmine Falls Relaxing Bath & Shower Therapy 50ml - gorgeous! See my review here.

Nivea Q10 Firming Body Oil 200ml - a nice product although I didn't really see any firming action.  I'd maybe buy again #4 in my mini project pan.  See here.  

Weleda Pomegranate Body Lotion 4ml sachet - this came in November's Amarya box.  Loved it.  One I'm definitely adding to my wish list.  Loved the fruity scent and light texture.

Caudalie Vinosource Mattifying Moisturiser 1ml - nice but too small a sample to really test it.

NEOM Complete Bliss Bath Oil 5ml - this came in December's Amarya box.  Already love these gorgeous bath oils.  You can see my review here.

Avon Advanced Techniques Shampoo & Leave in Conditioner sachets - okay products but didn't really like the scent.

Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel 30ml - one of my favourite shower products of the year.  Have bought this full size.

Philosophy Eye Hope Eye Cream 2ml sachet - nice product got a few uses from it.  Unsure if I'd  buy full size.

Simple Cleansing Wipes mini pack - handy after night's out and like to use wipes sometimes.  Will probably pick these up again.  Gentle on the skin.

NEOM Complete Bliss Organic Hand Cream 50ml - absolutely adore this hand cream - the best I've used.  You can see my review here.  I recently bought another.

Balance Me Supermoisturising Hand Cream 30ml - lovely hand cream.  I have another tucked away to use.

Vav Hand Cream 2ml sachet - this came in Joliebox.  I wasn't taken with the scent so wouldn't buy.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant sachet - love this!  Have used it on and off for years.  A really great product.

Philosophy Hope in a Jar Moisturiser 2ml sachet - didn't like the scent of this so wouldn't purchase full size.

MOSSGROVE Pure Deodorant 70ml - this featured in my December Favourites - already onto my next one.  

Louise Galvin Sacred Locks Shampoo for Fine Hair 100ml - love this paraben free shampoo.  Review here.

Aromatherapy Associates Revive Morning Bath & Shower Oil 3ml - love the Aromatherapy Associates bath oils.  Will definitely re-purchase at some point.

Natural Wisdom Rose & Pomegranate Anti-Oxidant Hydrating Toner 50ml - love this toner.  Just started my second bottle.  You can see my review here.

Abahna Lilac Rose & Geranium Body Lotion sachet - gorgeous light floral scent.

Hotel Chocolat Revive Body Butter 5ml sachet - from a new body line.  See here.  With notes of bergamot, green tea, lime, florals and sandalwood.  Lovely!

What have you been using up this month?


  1. Wow, this is the first I've heard about the Hotel Chocolat body line, sounds amazing! I definitely want to try some of that! :)

    1. I received this sample with my latest box of chocs! The scent is inspired by freshly cut cocoa pods. x

  2. Wow, you have loads of empties for one month :D I also didn't know that Hotel Chocolat had a body line ... will definitely be looking into that! Thanks for sharing.

    1. :) I definitely want to try some other items in the range too x

  3. We seem to like the same kind of hand creams! I like the NEOM and the Balance Me ones too! I need to try Bodhi after repeatedly hearing good things about the brand. You got through a lot of things this month, I need to use more of my samples up, they are just there unused! So naughty of me!

    1. :) You'd love Bodhi. I'm trying to use up the smaller samples as I've got so many. x

  4. NEOM Complete Bliss sounds like a secnt I would really love. I'm tempted to order one of the candles.

  5. I love empties posts! :) I love how you go through so much every month! I didn't like the scent of the Philosophy Hope in A Jar either, to be honest I don't like a lot of their scents so I'm surprised at how popular they are! x

    1. Me too! I am surprised too with how popular philosophy products are as I think there are better products out there x

  6. your empties make me envious... and determined to stop buying and start using :)

    1. awwh. I need to stop buying too ;) doing 100 day spending ban soon eek! x

  7. I am currently using the full size of the pomegranate body lotion, it is really lovely and the scent goes perfectly with the pomegranate body oil which I love. I also tried the citrus but my skin didn't react too well and it made me itch! The pomegranate is much much nicer soothing on the skin and very moisturising. xx

    1. I didn't like the pomegranate oil so much but love the lotion! I want to try the citrus bath milk. x
