Empties - my re-purchases

I've got a notebook I use to write down my empties - looking back over the last year and some 300 odd empties (yes, really!) these are the ones I've bought again and again. I don't have photos of all of them as some I don't have in my stash at this point in time but I'll definitely buy them again.

Pure Thoughts Tangerine & Jojoba Whipped Shea Butter 45g - this is my third or fourth pot and I'll definitely keep re-purchasing. A Pure Thoughts best seller.  It now comes in a metal tin and in a bigger size.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist - I don't currently have this in my stash but I will repurchase.  See my review here.

Lancome Nutrix Royal Mains Hand Cream 100ml - another favourite. This one is beside my bed. It deeply moisturises and smells nice.

Balance Me Skin Bright Hydrating Mist 60ml - this is my second bottle of this face mist.  One of my top products of this year.
