December Empties and Reviews

Happy New Year! It’s a fresh start, a clean slate and a new decade! Wishing you the very best for this year

It’s the final empties for 2019, this year has been a rollercoaster year but glad I made it through. Let’s get started with the empties, I didn’t get a lot this month


Snail Bee High Content Essence– I really had high hopes for this essence but it fell flat, I won’t repurchase. Sunday Riley Good Genes– another repurchase. The Inkey List Vitamin C– I have a full review here. Good Molecules Niacinamide toner-this was a lovely toner, I will bring a full review once I have used another bottle.  Pixi Vitamin C Caviar Balm– this is a leave on mask from the new Vitamin C collection from Pixi. I have a full review here. Soap & Glory puffy Eye attach eye patches– 2nd time I used these, its ok its cooling on the skin but I can’t see a major difference. Seahorse Plankton 5 Minutes Miracle Mask– this is Holland & Barrett’s own brand skincare. This mask is great, it leaves the skin looking brighter and hydrated but I cannot stand the scent of this. Smells botanical/herbal- if that’ ok for you then you will like this. Primark wipes. SkinSense Night Cream– I did not like this cream, I didn’t find it hydrating enough as a night cream so I used it as hand cream. Even as a hand cream I didn’t like it plus I realised it pilled as I layered it on. This was a gifted product which came in a set. Ole Henriksen Night gel– this was ok to use. I have used this twice and I don’t think its worth the full price. Pixi Vitamin C Lotion– full review here.


Primark travel toothpaste. Nunaat shampoo– I usually use this on my wigs however there was a tiny amount left so I used it on my hair. It works well for natural hair but it doesn’t leave it as soft and conditioned as my other shampoos. Ouai leave in conditioner– I think I got this 2018’s advent calendar. Long story short this is not tailored for natural hair. It didn’t make a difference to my hair but it was ok for my wigs. Soap & Glory Clean on Me– I love this shower gel, it rinses easily and smells great. Wild Seed Shea Butter– my 2nd time using this and I love it even more. The scent reminds me of a chocolate orange and the texture is quite lovely, whipped and fluffy. 2x cotton rounds from Primark & Poundland. Finally Lavender bar soap from Debenhams advent calendar.

Total 20, total this year 377/400

So I missed my target for the year but I used up all my old products so I’m happy!  I won’t be doing empties as often this year but I will be doing monthly reviews if I get 2 or more empties in a month. This year I am focusing heavily on rotating my most trusted products and professional treatments so there will be a lot of clinic reviews- watch this space!

Here’s to 2020 and the new decade!

Happy new year!

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?) So don’t be a stranger and SUBSCRIBE its free. I make sure I post regularly unless I have had a very stressful week/month. Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.
