January Empties: Products I've Used Up
Congratulations everyone, we survived January! It did seem like the longest month ever and I have a big old Empties post to show for it! Let's dive straight in, shall we?

Dr. Hauschka Lemongrass Vitalising Body Wash and Body Milk (travel sizes, link)
These were from a Christmas gift set and I just adore the Dr. Hauschka Lemongrass range - everything is so fresh and uplifting! Beautiful formulas that are perfect for a luxury pamper/pick me up. Repurchase? I'd happily buy both of these in the full sizes.

Madara Brightening AHA Peel Mask* (reviewed here)
Regular readers will have spotted this now iconic green tube in previous Empties posts as it always seems to be a staple in my skincare routine. It's a brilliant AHA based exfoliating mask that clears away dull dead skin cells and makes my complexion look instantly brighter in just 3 minutes. Repurchase? I think I may have another one somewhere!

January Empties: Products I've Used Up
Dr. Organic Vitamin E Cream (link)
Picked this up when it was on offer during the Holland & Barrett Black Friday sale. It's a multi-purpose moisturiser and I mainly used it on my hands and feet before going to bed, and I have to say, it surprised me. The formula is lovely and hydrating, yet it feels light and is easily absorbed so if you hate thick creams, give this one a try. Repurchase? Might do in the future.

Dafna's Revival Bio-Active Beauty Mask(reviewed here)
Oh, what a sad day it was when I used this little beauty up! I really enjoyed this creamy exfoliating mask and it was amazing for those times when I needed a quick fix after a busy week. Great for special occasions and events where you want to look your absolute best. Repurchase? It's sadly out of my budget at the moment, but I'd be very tempted if I saw it on offer.

Elsa's Natural Deodorant Stick in Sensitive(reviewed here)
A few of you have been asking me what natural deodorants I use after I posted about them on my Instagram, so I'm going to start including them in my Empties posts. I'm a huge fan of Elsa's and this Sensitive one is a good one to try if you're new to natural deodorants. Repurchase? Yes.

Tropic Soothe The Senses Luxury Body Oil(link)
I was lucky enough to win this just before Christmas and it's such a beautiful body oil - the scent of it is incredible. Very floral, heady, soothing, and ultra-relaxing, with a formula that makes my skin feel like silk afterwards. Such a gorgeous pampering product. Repurchase? Very tempted!

Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment (reviewed here)
I've used this on/off for years and have gone through countless tubes of the stuff. Whenever my hair feels particularly dry, damaged or fragile from too much blow-drying and straightening, this treatment sorts it out in no time at all. Repurchase? I've gone back to using Macadamia but will pick this up again in the future I'm sure. 

January Empties: Products I've Used Up
Benecos Seabuckthorn and Orange Hand & Nail Cream(link)
One of my all-time favourite budget hand creams, you can't wrong with this for a mere £3! I love everything about it, from the citrusy, uplifting scent, to the hydrating but light feeling formula, it's amazing for dry hands. Repurchase? Yes.

Guiltless Skin Rosehip Cleanser(reviewed here)
If you want to buy more organic skincare from British indie brands, Guiltless Skin is one that I highly recommend. Their Rosehip Cleanser is perfect for sensitive skin and is a lovely light gel which emulsifies into a milky consistency when you add water to it. Ideal for a morning cleanse. Repurchase? Yes.

Ooh! Oils Of Heaven Organic Avocado Hydrating Face Oil(reviewed here)
My skin has been feeling a lot drier than usual thanks to the colder weather, so I've been reaching for this Hydrating Face Oil on a regular basis. It gets the job done and feels very nourishing, whilst instantly eradicating any dry patches at the same time. Repurchase? There are other brands and products that I prefer, so I'm not sure.

Nourish Radiance Firming Facial Oil (reviewed here)
I couldn't help but pick this up again when I spotted it for a bargain price in TK Maxx recently, as I've used it in the past and loved it. If your skin is starting to show those first signs of ageing like mine is, it's a fantastic oil to try and you can do a good facial massage with it to help lift everything which really helps! Repurchase? Yes.

Colab Dry + Shampoo Active (link)
Lastly, I have some dry shampoo from Colab. Cheap and cheerful, it does the job and does it very well. No white roots or residue, even on my dark brown hair, and it sucks up oil and dirt like no-one's business. Repurchase? I've gone back to using the Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo simply because I'm cutting down on aerosols.

What have you used up recently?
