#NoBuyJanuary - January Empties.

  It seems very fitting to finish #NoBuyJanuary with my empties post, although I don't seem to have as much to show for it as I thought I would. I have really enjoyed doing these posts. I feel like their has been a great sense of community. I have surprised myself by managing to stick to it, even when there has been some fantastic special offers and sales. I am going to have a little treat, but am setting myself a budget of £30. I still have a few opened products I am working my way through and that stash of mine is still pretty enormous. I think it's time I established a new set of rules to help me, but I will cover these in a later post.

BareSkin Beauty Radiance Restored Face Serum (15mls) is just a lovely skincare product. I am really sad to have finished this, but I definitely feel I have had my money's worth from it. On my wish list to repurchase but I have a couple of other serums I need to use first.
Blanc Cachemire Crème De Jour Protectrice (15ml). This was a sample I wanted to use up from a BirchBox. Pleasant enough to use, but I won't be repurchasing.
Botanicals Rose & Camellia Facial Oil (5ml). Another product I loved and am sad to have finished. This is a beautiful facial oil, and the star product of the range in my opinion. Added to the wish list as I have other oils to use up first.
Botanicals Rose & Camellia Cleansing Melt (5g) and Skin Polish (5g). I liked these a lot. I found them really gentle yet effective on my skin. Would possibly repurchase.
Freya Luna Skin Support Cleansing Cream (sample) and Skin Support Facial Tonic (10ml). The cleanser felt rich and luxurious, and the tonic was lovely and refreshing without stripping my skin.
Freya Luna Embrace Your Age Moisturiser (sample). I have really enjoyed using this as my night cream. It really suited my skin and has helped keep the drying effects of Winter at bay.
Freya Luna Shed Your Skin Facial Tonic (10ml). From all the Freya Luna products I have tried, I feel that the Shed Your Skin range is the one the meets my skins needs the most. I think I will be coming back to this range once my stash is under control.
Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash (125mls). I love the smell of this facial wash. It's very gentle on the skin. I would happily buy this again in the future.
Korres shower gel in Fig (250ml). I really like Korres products. I have a couple more shower gels in different fragrances to be using up.
Dead Sea Spa Magik Silky Smooth Body Lotion (20ml). I wasn't all that fussed on this one. I wouldn't buy the full size.
Roseisle Skincare Nuts & Berries Oil Blend (20ml). I really like this oil. It smells great, absorbs well and is very moisturising. I really want to try more from Roseisle skincare. They offer sample size versions of quite a few of their products too.
The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter (200mls) I do like this but I am keen to find a more natural version of this. I won't be buying a replacement for this.
Botanicals Rose & Camellia Body Lotion (5g). I am very impressed with this range. Lovely light texture that is very moisturising. A little goes a long way.
BalmBalm Relax Bath & Shower Oil. I love these little BalmBalm oils. Beautiful fragrance. It always makes my skin nice and soft. Will be repurchasing in the future.
