January Empties

Hello! Welcome to a huge Empties post where I  am going to talk about all the products I have used up recently and give a mini review on them. I hope you find this helpful and enjoy!


Glasshouse Manhattan Candle: I loved this candle! It had a warm, clean scent. It has notes of orchid, musk, rose and orange. A gorgeous floral scent for all year round! I would buy this again, but I have a few more candles to get through first.

Body Shop Virgin Mojito Shower Gel: This was a nice shower gel. Had a super fresh, zingy lime scent. Not sure if I loved enough to repurchase.

Tula Naturals Organic Eye Serum with Kiwi and Argan: I found this didn’t sink in very well around the eye area, but worked better as an all over face serum (although was still quite thick so only for seriously dehydrated days). I wouldn’t repurchase this.

Lee Stafford Here Come the Curls Shampoo and Conditioner: I really liked the way these smelt and they worked pretty well. Nothing ground breaking amazing, but then not many shampoos and conditioners have done that for me. So I might repurchase this in the future.

Natio Nail Colour: I really like this shade of yellow, but it is not opaque. It takes three coats to get a good colour going, and I just don’t have the time or patience for that. It’s also really old, so probably time go to anyway.

Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Cream: I normally wouldn’t put little samples like this in an Empties, but this was really nice so I wanted to share. I only got two uses out of this, but it left my skin feeling so velvety soft. I would definitely be interested in purchasing a full size in the future.

Body Shop Spa Wisdom Africa Honey and Beeswax Hand and Foot Butter: This is so embarrassingly old that I don’t think they even make it anymore. It took me so long to finish this product. But it was amazing at moisturising my hands and it smelt divine!

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel: I have raved about this before on my blog (which you can read about here). I love this cleanser for morning and/or night and will definitely repurchase soon!

Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Daily Gel Cleanser: This was an OK cleanser. Didn’t irritate my skin but didn’t do anything fabulous to it either. I used this in the morning as I found it didn’t take makeup off very well. I wouldn’t repurchase this product.

Body Shop Rainforest Shine Conditioner and Rainforest Moisture Shampoo: I really enjoyed these mini travel products. They both smelt really nice and did a great job at washing my hair without it feeling stripped. I would repurchase these again.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Firm Hold Hairspray: I really like this hairspray. I only use hairspray when I actually need my hair to stay in place or tame those frizzy bits at the front. This did a great job at that, smelt fine and this little bottle lasted a long time. I have already repurchased.

Sheridan Cashmere Candle: I went through this candle the fastest I’ve ever gone through a candle. It smells gorgeous. Super warm and comforting, without any spice or dark scents. I would purchase this again.

  1. I find that the Yes To masks are a hidden gem. Their skincare items don’t wow me either, but their sleeping masks and sheet masks are pretty amazing. I would check them out!
