December Empties

So I announced in my final update on Project Pan on my YouTube channel that I would from now on be writing blog posts about which products I had managed to finish in each month.
The main reason for this is that it will be a lot easier to do then actually film a video at the moment. Lighting is a nightmare in my house, and filming a video takes a long time, where as snapping a picture will only take me a minute or two.
I wanted to still keep a record of what products I am using up though because I often forget these products when I make favourite videos and then you don't get the full picture of what products I am reaching for.

Without further ado, here are my December empties!

I know, pretty poor effort there, but as I explained in my December favourites I haven't been using a lot of different products lately, though I do desperately need to start downsizing my make-up again so hopefully more will finished soon!

La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution
£11.50 from Boots

I discovered Micellar solutions in 2011 and I think my make up removal technique will be changed forever now, they really are great. I have tried this La Roche-Posay one and the Vichy one, and I have to say I think I prefer this one. I don't know what it is about it but I don't seem to have to work as hard to remove things. When I use the Vichy I feel like I may not have got it all off, but with this I am confident my skin is makeup free. It isn't cheap, and I am hoping to give the Bioderma a go this year, but for now this will be a definite repurchase!

Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Body Lotion
£22.00 for 250ml (size shown is a 40ml Sample) from Ahava 
This was a sample from my August GlossyBox, and was probably the best item in the box that month. It is definitely the only one I have finished. I used this primarily on my legs after shaving and it didn't irritate or give me a rash like many body lotions can, even though it is mildly scented. The scent itself isn't particularly offensive either though it is muskily floral.
I wouldn't repurchase this currently, purely because of the price, but hey if I all of a sudden start earning more then I would possibly give the full size a go!

Caudalie Quenching Sorbet Creme
£20 for 40ml (size shown is a 10ml sample) From Caudalie

Another beauty box sample, but this time from my first Carmine Box. This moisturiser is truly beautiful, it smells gorgeous (made from Bordeaux grapes) and really leaves teh skin feeling fresh and healthy, something which I find a lot of moisturisers fail to achieve. The consistency is a light almost foamy mousey texture which helps it to smooth onto the skin nicely. 
I would repurchase this in a heartbeat, but unfortunately I think it may have caused me to get those tiny little blemishes which are common when I react to a product, I highly recommend it though!

So there you have it, my first empties post, I hope you enjoyed it and let me know if you have tried and rate any of these products

  1. I have to agree that the Ahava lotion is rather amazing! I've tried Vichy's Micellar Solution but now that you mention La Roche-Posay's better, I'm hitting Boots once my current Vichy bottle runs out! Thank you for reviewing them empties! =) xx

    1. I'm glad you like the post! I am hoping they will keep me on track with posting :)
      I think the La Roche-Posay one is about £1 or something silly more, and I really don't know what it is about it, but it just feels cleaner, it's definitely worth giving a go.
