I hope you all had a wonderful time over Christmas and the New Year. I begin 2015 with my final empties post of 2014. After looking back through my Empties posts I realise I have used up 155 products, which are a mixture of samples and full size products. The scary thing is this has barely made a dent in my stash. Definitely time to concentrate on using things up. Maybe I need to put my beloved beauty box subscriptions on hold for a while.
Bodhi and Birch become one of my favourite brands in 2014, and their products have appeared in a large number of my Empties posts. I love Ylang-Ylang Incensa Bath & Shower Therapy (50mls). I find it a very calming fragrance. I have a full size of this still to use.
Rosa Rosa Mini Trio are on my wish list to buy. I reviewed them here. I absolutely loved this little set, but I really need to use up some other things before I buy the full sizes.
Pep Noir Bath & Shower Therapy (50mls) has been a pleasure to use in the bath, especially in the cold weather or after exercise. The spicy aroma is great for tired and cold muscles. I have another sample of this.
Speick Balance & Freshness Oily Hair (200mls). This shampoo is very affordable and I liked how shiny and soft it left my hair. I still needed to wash my hair daily, so can't say it helped with the oiliness of my hair. My hubby also liked this, so this is a good family shampoo. I would repurchase this again.
The Earth Works Cosmetics Lemon & Geranium Body Melt (80g) I am really sad to have finished this up. I love the cheerful citrus fragrance. This is deeply moisturising and a little goes a long way. I really feel I have had my moneys worth from this. The next product I will buy is the Orange & Lavender.
As.Ap Cleansing Oil #5 (5mls) this cleansing oil is simply gorgeous. It is very gentle and left my skin feeling very nourished. You really only do need a few drops. Another product to add to the wish list.
FOM Antioxidant Facial Mask (5g) is one of my favourite samples from my SoukSouk boxes last year. It really brightens my skin. I love this and have already repurchased.
Balance Me Radiance Face Oil (10mls) I really enjoyed using this. It is nice and light making it good for day time skin care. I love the rollerball applicator. I would buy again once I have used up a few other oils.
Elemental Herbology Deep Cleanse (50mls) I can't find a link for this, so I am not sure if it was a special addition. This was another sample from a SoukSouk box. I have mixed feelings about this. I liked the fragrance and the formula didn't irritate my skin, but there are one or two ingredients in here that I wouldn't want to be using on a regular basis.
