November Empties 2013

Caudalie Hand & Nail Cream 30ml

This was lovely, it smelt botanical and really fresh. The cream wasn’t greasy and felt nice once massaged into my hands. I took this with me on a few long haul flights and it was a god send. A good hand cream to have in your bag

Alpha H Absolute Eye Complex 7.5ml

This was in a skincare kit I bought from What’s in my Handbag. I wasn’t sure about it at first but after using it for over a month I liked it and found it cooling and hydrating. It is a gel and it absorbs very quickly but doesn’t leave your skin with that tight feeling. I would buy this again if I had the money.

L’Oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution 200ml

I have spoken about this a few times on my blog and I really like this. It is a great budget friendly micellar water. It was gentle at removing my makeup and this bottle lasted me well over a month of using it daily.

Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar PocketBac Anti Bacterial Gel 29ml

LOVE these. I bought 10 back with me from San Francisco earlier this year and I have one tucked away in every bag, on my desk and in my car. They smell so damn good. I have have a few other scents but this Vanilla one is sweet and the smell lasts a long time on my hands. It is great for keeping your hands bacteria free and just handy to keep in your purse. These get a big thumbs up from me and I will be sad once they have all ran out.

Elemis Lime & Ginger Hand & Body Wash* 100ml

This has been by my bath for a while & I’ve been using it sparingly as it smells so good. It is a lovely body wash and I am going to treat myself to the full size. This bottle was part of a Lime & Ginger gift set that Elemis sent me last year & I misplaced so I’m finally getting round to enjoying it. This smells quite festive, I love it.

Nivea Hydro Care Chapstick

I never finish these but I have had this one in my care for a while now. These are inexpensive and some people say that they’re not great for your lips but I find them OK.

Neal & Wolf Intensive Care Treatment For All Hair Types* 200ml

This was a gorgeous Conditioning Treatment. I used it once a week and it left my hair looking glossy and feeling bouncy and healthy. Neal and Wolf haircare is luxurious but is so affordable – perfect combination.

Botanics Super Serum Radiant Youth 30ml

This was a nice lightweight serum, but I think my skin has bigger concerns than what this is aimed at. If you’re in your early 20’s then I think this would be excellent for you. It is hydrating and brightening but I don’t think it has any anti ageing benefits. I liked it but I don’t think I would repurchase.

Products that are marked with an * have either been sent to me for my consideration or I’ve received at events. I’m under no obligation to review them on my blog. However if I do, the reviews are 100% my own.

  1. Anything lime and ginger gets my vote! I love Elemis’s bath and body products, they are so luxurious – their bath milk is second to none!
