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

Skincare

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.

Bodycare/Haircare

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!
