December Empties

EM1

I can't believe another year is done and dusted. Throughout December I used up a few products, so I'm pretty proud of myself. One of my many New Years Resolutions is to try and use up all the products I have before using more. Sure, I may absolutely adore a certain body scrub - but why buy more when I can try something knew that I already own! So hopefully we'll be seeing a few different products here.

EM2

All the products I used up this month.

EM3

Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover

This is my all-time favourite eye makeup remover. I've probably featured this one a few times, but I don't care because it's amazing! Would I repurchase? Yes, I actually already have another bottle of this but I'll be trying something different first.

Innoxa Renew Anti Aging Exfoliator*

I have had this exfoliator sitting on my desk for a while now, not really bothering with it. Once I tried it, I fell in love. This exfoliator is extremely gentle yet seems to exfoliate just as good, if not better, than some very scrubby exfoliators. I was impressed. Would I repurchase? Once I've used up a few other alternative, I would definitely consider.

Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser*

I've been a fan of Biore products for a long time now, and their charcoal cleanser did not disappoint. I found this one to be really great for my oily skin, and I'm sad to see it go. Would I repurchase? Again, once I use up some alternatives I would definitely think about buying this one.

EM4

Lush Dream Cream

Dream Cream is my absolute go-to moisturiser. This huge tub lasted forever, so the slightly higher price tag is forgivable. I have a smaller backup tub that I'll need to dip into for now, but I have so many other alternatives I can use up first. Would I repurchase? Always and forever.

Lush Ponche Shower Gel

When Ponche came out last Christmas, I wasn't sold on the scent at first. When I tried it in the shower, something changed and I fell in love. I had one or two left over bottles from last year that I've been slowly using. I'm so disappointed Ponche wasn't re-released this Christmas! Would I repurchase? I would if I could!

EM5

Essenzza Fuss Free Naturals Facial Cleansing Wipes in Green Tea & Vitamin C

I'm sorry but I actually hated these. I don't often mention things I hate on this blog, let alone actually finish, but I couldn't bring myself to waste cleansing wipes. Firstly, the smell was definitely not my favourite scent. I also didn't really care for the feeling of these wipes. They seemed a bit dry and scratchy. Would I repurchase? Probably not. I have a second packed of these in my room somewhere with a different scent. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and try again, as I could have just had a dodgy packet.

Nivea Stress Protect Anti Perspirant

My go-to deodorant! I have a few backups of this already so you probably won't be seeing any alternatives for a while. This is my favourite, it works better than anything else. Would I repurchase? Absolutely.

Paul Brown Hapuna Argan Oil*

The Hapuna Argan Oil has been my favourite for a long time. This made my hair feel very soft, and it also smelt amazing. I actually already have a backup that I purchased after trying this for a few months. This bottle lasted so long, too. Would I repurchase? Already have, but I probably would again!

So there we have it, my December Empties. As I said before I'm pretty proud of myself for using up a fair amount of staple products. Hopefully I'll be trying out some awesome new products that I can share with everyone!

  2. Great job on your empties! I'm trying to do the same as you by trying not to buy new things before going through my own stash first (although I did do some Lush hauling on Boxing Day haha).

  4. Happy New Year Jasmine!

    I'm thinking you could finish off the other pack of wipes for removing swatches if not for your face makeup? I'm trying to get away from habitually using makeup wipes myself this year - let's see how far I get with that little resolution!

  5. I love the sound of that Argan Oil, I might have to try that one out!

  6. It is a good feeling when products are used up rather than going out of date and wasted.

  7. That's a shame about the wipes! I actually really like them. Hopefully, you just got a pack of duds.
