November Empties

How on earth have we got to the end of November already!!

I've been working through my stash and not buying anything new so a lot of my empties are samples. I'll do a list of everything I have used and comment on those that really stood out for me.

Full Size:

Neal's Yard Remedies - Frankincense & Mandarin Body Polish

Neal's Yard Remedies - Geranium & Orange Shower Gel

Neal's Yard Remedies - Purifying Palmarosa Mattifier - The tube may be small but it lasted months. Not sure it actually did anything though, I've not noticed a difference not using it

Neal's Yard Remedies - Wild Rose Beauty Balm - Noooooooooooooooooooo! Totally gutted to be at the end of this magical balm. I feel like I have parted with a best friend and don't know when we will reunite. I'm going to hold off buying this until I have worked through my stash but I WILL be repurchasing. Full review here

bubb & DIMPLES - Nourishing Organic Body Balm - Another multi-purpose balm. See my full review here

Weleda - Rasiercreme - For some unknown reason, Amazon sent me a German shaving cream. Still it doesn't matter that I couldn't read the instructions - its shaving cream! I really liked this but at £7.15 for 75mls it was expensive, especially as it only lasted me about 5 weeks.

Weleda - Citrus Deodorant - Full review here

Lavera Basis Sensitiv Shampoo - Full review here

Naked Shine - Shampoo & Conditioner - I know, I know. These aren't great but the really work for my hair! 

Samples & Minis

The Organic Pharmacy - Antioxidant Face Serum & Antioxidant Face Gel - Yuk. Both smelt of bitter orange and did absolutely nothing for me

Alva - Handcream

No7 - Beautiful Skin Day Cream - Finally used up from Christmas last year. Not one I will buy again

bubb & DIMPLES - Shea Butter - See my full review here

Marble & Milkweed - Nourishing Body Oil - Delicious body oil, shame it wasn't bigger! Full review here

bodhi - Mint Thé Bath & Shower Therapy - Mmmmm, the best shower gel. Full review here

Peppy Galore - Nurse Peppy Hand Cream - This hand cream was perfect for me, just the right amount of moisture. Full review here

Glow Skincare - Rose & Macadamia Face Cream - To heavy for my skin

What have you used up this month?


  1. Ah I've been wanting to try the NY Wild Rose Balm for a while now, can't beat a good cleansing balm - they're not all that easy to come by! x

  2. I wonder which brand you like to use the most. :P So many things I want to try such as... everything from Neal's Yard!

  3. Loving Neal's Yard too!
    Never tried Organic Pharmacy, a bit surprised it was that effective :-(!

  4. Lot's of empty products, I love Neal's yard :) Xx

  5. I can't believe how fast this month's gone too! Really want to try something from bubb and Dimples , sounds like a lovely brand :) x

  6. That's a lot of empties you got there :-) I used a couple from the Naked hair care range about a year ago, and they didn't really work for my hair. And I absolutely LOVE Neals Yard Remedies, I'm really tempted to purchase from their Rose range again but like you, I also need to use up my stash before I purchase any more. :-) xx

  7. Great post, always enjoy reading about empties! I was in Neal's Yard Remedies this morning and randomly thought about your blog lol x
