February Empties


Dr Bronner's Magic Soaps Peppermint Pure Castille Soap 59ml - simply love this 18-in-1 uses soap.  I usually use it to clean my make up brushes.  You can see my post about it here.  I've also used the soap to clean the bath/floor!  I love a multi-purpose product! Smells great too.  Already have a back up of this.

Bodhi Jasmine Falls Relaxing Bath & Shower Therapy and Palmarosa Verde Purifying Bath & Shower Therapy both 50ml - already a huge fan of Jasmine Falls, see here.  Would buy both of these again.

Lush Ponche Shower Gel 100g - this was a limited edition out at Christmas time.   A fruity punch spiked with tequila.  Really loved this fruity scented shower gel.  Would pick it up again next Christmas.

REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash 50ml - love REN Rose Otto.  I seem to always have one of these in my stash!

Noble Isle Willow Song Bath & Shower Gel 30ml - this is quite a nice scent but I prefer Summer Rising Cornish Hedgerows scent.  So probably wouldn't buy this again.

Aromatherapy Associates Relax Deep Bath & Shower Oil 3ml* - simply love these bath oils.  A full size one of this is definitely going on my wish list - you are guaranteed a great sleep if you use this at bedtime - gorgeous!  With essential oils of vetivert, camomile and sandalwood.


Dr Hauschka Rose Body Moisturiser 10ml and Rose Body Oil 10ml - these came in my Amarya box - loved both of them and would buy.

Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange Skin Refreshing Body Lotion 50ml - simply loved this light textured moisturising body lotion.  Loved the fresh orange scent.  Will definitely buy this when the spending ban is over.

Pure Fiji Nourishing Exotic Coconut Oil - trial size - simply love this coconut scented super moisturising oil.  I picked up this mini at Gemma's blog sale. I'm sure to buy the full size again as I love this product when I received it in Joliebox.

Natural Honey Body Lotion 75ml - this came in Joliebox. Nice to use and smelt good but it is a Spanish drugstore product so will be unable to purchase here.

Doctor Duve Lifting & Firming Hand & Decollete Cream sachet - absolutely loved this! Got a couple of sachets in Joliebox - but its super expensive at £79 for 200ml.  Probably wouldn't purchase.

L'Occitane Desert Rose Hand Cream 30ml - this was a freebie with Marie Claire magazine.  Love L'Occitane hand creams shame this was a limited edition as the scent is lovely.


Caudalie Vinexpert Eye & Lip Serum 1.5ml - this is really nice and I'd consider purchasing it.

OV Naturals Rosy Glow Luxury Organic Moisturiser 15ml - simply love this rose scented moisturiser.  You can seem my review here.  Full size is on my wish list for after my spending ban.

Mama Mio Mighty Moisture Day & Night Moisturiser 15ml - I got this via a YOU magazine offer.  Simply love this moisturiser - a lovely scent, nice texture and can use it AM and PM.  Definitely one I'd buy.

Mama Mio Eye Know All in One Eye Serum 5ml - this also came with the moisturiser (and face wash). Seemed an ok eye serum but didn't WOW me like the moisturiser did.  So wouldn't purchase.

Origins GinZing Eye Cream 6ml - this came in the Origins Christmas Bauble which Mez very kindly picked up for a few of us who live outside London.  I really liked this eye cream.  It brightened up the eye area and I'd maybe purchase it.

Wei Eye Cream 2ml - this came in January's Birchbox.  Simply loved this but full size retails at £60 so I won't be buying it but it was lovely to use.


Moroccanoil Treatment Oil 10ml - I found this a bit rich for my hair.  Prefer the light version but this is still nice to use.

Paul Mitchell Color Care Color Protect Daily Conditioner 100ml - I reviewed this here.  A product I'd buy.

REDKEN Nature's Rescue Refreshing Detox Shampoo 200ml - only use this occasionally.  A great product for getting rid of product build up.  You can see my review here. I've already stocked up on this.

Rahua Shampoo 60ml - this was nice to use but quite pricey.  Not sure if I'd buy it again.

Kiehl's Amino Acid Shampoo 65ml - this was really nice and gentle on the hair and smelt of coconut.  Lovely would perhaps purchase again.

Have you used any of these products?  If you've done an empties post please link it up.

  2. Another great 'empty' post - nice variation in products and always good to see someone who actually uses all the beauty box products. I really should endeavour to at least 'try' some of the ones I don't think I'd like. Thanks for the mention too hon. xx Gem

  3. Wow you've used up a lot! The Mama Mio products sound fab. I have the Origins GinZing and it's lovely but I'm terrible at remembering to use eye cream haha. I don't put my Empties post up until the last day of the month - otherwise I know I'd be finishing more products ha.

    1. The Mama Mio face cream is amazing was so sad when I finished it! I knew I wasn't going to use up any more products in Feb so that's why I'm early with it x

  4. I've tried the GinZing eye cream and really liked it, maybe not for night as I just don't think it's thick enough, but for a light and brightening day cream it's really great.

  7. If you find Morrocon Oil too rich I think you would get on well with the Macadamia Oil (if you haven't already tried it) it's alot lighter.

    Fab empties post as usual. :)

  8. What did you think of the Dr Haushcka body oil compared to the REN Moroccan rose body oil, I want a new body oil to match the Moroccan rose moisturiser and don't know which one to get. x

    Replies
    1. I found the Dr Hauschcka quite lightly scented - although it was nice. I would say I preferred scent of the REN oil. x
