Empties January 2015

Here are the products I have finished in January. I don't feel like I have used very much up though as most of these are sample sizes. 
TEWC Grapefruit Facial Exfoliator is a product that I used on my hands rather than my face. I love the fragrance of this, but found it a bit too scrubby for my face. Love the brand, but wouldn't repurchase this particular item.
Pure Thoughts Winter Wonderland Soap was lovely to use. Super gentle on my skin, and the fragrance is gorgeous. I have a lot of soaps to use, so not an immediate purchase for me.
Weleda Citrus Creamy Body Wash is my only full size empty this month. I wanted to try this to see how it compared to the Sea Buckthorn body wash. The Citrus is sharper and more lemony. I will buy this again.
The Naked Skin Care Company Evening Relax Moisturising Body Oil is absolutely gorgeous. Left my skin feeling baby soft and adored the fragrance of ylang-ylang and sandalwood. Full size is going on the wish list as is the Morning Zest.
I reviewed Mel Millis Organic Neroli Hydrolate Mist Tonic and Neroli & Baobab Re Energising Face Oil last week here and suffice to say they are both on the wish list.
I am a massive fan of Aromatherapy Associates. Light Relax is one of my favourite bath & shower oils. I love the blend of Lavender, Ylang Ylang and Petitgrain. I have a couple of their oils to use, but will buy the full size of this in the future.
I reviewed The Body Deli Creme De La Rose this month too and am very sad to have finished this off. I need to whittle down my stash before I can buy the full size.
The Naked Skincare Company Orange & Frankincense Hydrating Skin Balm was another stunning product. Deeply hydrating without being greasy. Loved the bright and cheerful fragrance and the full size is very affordable too.
Living Nature Nourishing Hand Cream was reviewed in December. Although I really liked this hand cream it costs more than I want to pay for a hand cream so won't be repurchasing.
Nourish Skin Care Kale Enzymatic Exfoliating Cleanser. What I really like about Nourish Skin care is that they make very affordable products with very good ingredients.  I really liked how this made my skin look. I have another sample to use.
I have mentioned Skin & Tonic's Steam Clean lots lately so I don't really need to tell you again how much I love this cleanser. I have a couple of samples of this stashed and will buy the full size when I run out.
Ambre Botanicals Bath Oil was a lovely comforting blend of Rosemary, Thyme and Mint. This sample lasted me ages and I really enjoyed using it. I have my eye on both of their miniature sets as I would love to try more from this brand.


  1. I felt I hardly used much up this month. Nice empties quite a lot I love like Skin & Tonic and the naked skincare company. Also huge fan of Ambre botanicals x

  2. I feel the same. Hoping for a bumper month of empties in February x

  3. Many lovely empties here. Aromatherapy Associates - now you're talking! I've just finished off a miniature bottle of Inner Strength. It may be empty but I can still smell the gorgeous aroma on the bottle top! I mentioned to you on Twitter earlier that I'm so very impressed with Nourish. Everything of theirs that I've tried so far I've loved. Tx

  4. Ahhh I'm always jealous of you using up so much stuff haha! Lots of lovely ones here - I've been trying to use up the Mel Millis duo, really like the oil! x
