Empties November 2014

I don't feel as though I have used a huge amount of products up this month, but a couple of these have been on the go for quite some time. 
Dr Bronners Liquid Soap feature fairly regularly in my empties post. This is the first time I have tried the lavender. It's nice and gentle on my skin and smells nice too. I always have a supply of Dr Bronners in the house.
I reviewed Josh Rosebrook Deep Nourishing Conditioner earlier in the month here and still have another sample size to use up.
Bodhi & Birch Jasmine Falls bath and shower therapy is one of my favourite fragrances. It's nice and gentle on the skin, gives plenty of bubbles in the bath. What's not to love. Will repurchase this again.
Neals Yard Remedies Geranium & Orange Hand Cream. This was a magazine freebie and was a lovely hand cream to use. Very moisturising without being heavy. I really liked the fragrance too. I think I would buy the Bee Lovely hand cream instead of this as I like that one better.
Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Bath & Shower Oil. This has featured on quite a few empties posts too. It is my favourite fragrance by Aromatherapy Associates. I have another two samples stashed and a full size too.
Argan Skin Renew by Nourish Skincare Range was sent to me to review. You can read my full thoughts here. I think this moisturiser is really good value for money. The full size has lasted me nearly 6 months, and has worked well over summer and the beginning of Winter. I do plan to buy this again when I have used up a few other products.
BalmBalm Rose Geranium Face Balm I used this as a cleansing balm and really liked it. It has a very subtle fragrance. This is another product that is very affordable. I have another of these to use up.
I absolutely loved this sample of Suti Facial Cleansing Balm and was very sad to finish it. It has a gorgeous citrus fragrance, and left my skin feeling very soft. The full size is on my wish list.
Odylique Avacado Replenishing Cream was great for my dry skin. It absorbed well without being too heavy or greasy. This is a really nice moisturiser and I would happily buy this again,
Pai Rosehip Bigenerate Oil is another product I have had on the go for months and am very sad to have finished. This is one of my favourite facial oils. It is very light. More recently I have been using it on the ends of my hair with great success. I will buy this again, but do need to use some of my other oils first.
Empties November 2014
Organic Surge Sugared Almond Shower gel. This is the first Organic Surge product I have tried and liked it. Nice and gentle on my skin and also very kind on the purse strings. I would like to try some of the other fragrances.
My final empties is Therapie Roques ONeil Himalayan Detox Salts is another favourite product. These are great to add to the bath at the end of a busy and stressful day. I have another couple of these mini bags to use.


  1. I lovooove the scent of the Organic Surge one that you have :) I can't use several of their washes because of the potassium sorbate preservative, but I think maybe this was one of the ones that didn't have it in? Lovely selection of empties - I love reading other peoples but am so bad at recording my own! x

  2. Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis Extract*, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Coco-Glucoside, Lauryl Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Benzyl Alcohol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Glycerin (Veg), Parfum, Maris Sal, Piper Nigrum (Black Pepper) Oil, Sodium Phytate, Citric Acid, Limonene. *ingredient from organic farming. Naturally occurring within essential oils.
    Unless it has another name I think you should be ok with this. I always love reading other people's empties too x

  3. I love inner strength and therapie x

  4. Pai oil really is gorgeous and I'll also be sad when I finish it.. :) xx

    1. My skin and hair loves it. I must use other oils first though x

  5. You have some lovely products in here. You know I recently reviewed the Nourish Argan Skin Renew on my blog. I was totally won over by it. I'm now using (and loving) Nourish's Radiance Rejuvenating Peptide Serum (a post on that coming up next week). Have you tried it? It's £20 - bargain for a good anti-ageing serum. Love the AA Inner Strength too. That BalmBalm rose geranium face balm sounds divine. When I've finished off all my balms I'm going to check that one out. Tx

  6. I haven't tried it. That is a really good price though. Look forward to seeing your thoughts on it x
