Product Empties - September 2018

Hi everyone,

Welcome to another post of 'Product Empties'. I know its the second one in a two month period, but I went through a lot and I didn't want to put it all in one blog post.

Dr Botanicals Japanese Orange Fast Acting Overnight Restoring Mask (Discontinued)
This is a lovely overnight face mask, and it was the overnight mask that I used which got me into using overnight masks. This smells of oranges, and it also left my skin feeling super nourished and hydrated. Sadly, this product got discontinued even before I had finished using this up; which is a shame as I would have loved to have picked up another one.

Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil
This is the best scented rose oil I have ever used, and it also has a lovely lightweight formula that sinks into the skin straight away. It was a pleasure to use, and I would recommend this product to anyone who is in the market for a rose facial oil.

Tatcha Pure One Step Camillia Cleansing Oil
I loved using this as a pre-cleanse, as I found it just a tad more effective than my usual cleansing balm. This is also a lovely cleansing oil to use in the evening. Sadly, Tatcha products are not that easy to get a hold of here in the UK.

Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Quenching Serum
This is a gorgeous hydrating serum from Caudalie, and I think I'm currently on my fourth bottle. Its a lightweight serum, and it sinks into the skin straight away. It also has a lovely refreshing fragrance. If your skin is in need of a boost of hydration I would recommend that you give this a try.

Elemis Lime Blossom Cleanser
This cleanser from Elemis is suitable for people who have combination/ oily skin, and its also a cleansing cream so it won't strip your skin of any natural oils unlike a foaming cleanser. This is the second one of this cleanser that I have gone through, but sadly this one turned before I could even use it up.

REN Clarimatte Toner
I used the REN Clarimatte Toner as part of my Sunday skincare routine. It took me a while to use up, and this is the second one that I have up completely. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has oily/ combination skin, and is looking for something a little more gentle and might like to try something more natural.

Orchard & Bloom Madagascan Vanilla Shower Gel (Travel Size)
I enjoyed using this shower gel, even though I'm not a fan of vanilla scents. The vanilla fragrance in this shower gel wasn't that overpowering, and the shower gel did what it was supposed to do.

Baylis & Harding Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit Body Lotion (Travel Size)
This took me quite a while to get through even though it was only a travel size body lotion. The sweet mandarin and grapefruit fragrance was lovely, and refreshing.

Lancome Hydra Zen & Hydra Zen Nuit Moisturisers (Deluxe Size)
I have used the Lancome Hydra Zen Nuit moisturiser in the past and it is a gorgeous night time moisturiser. The Hydra Zen with the SPF I didn't enjoy using as much, as it was a little bit thick for a daytime moisturiser, even though it hydrate the skin well; it just took a while for it to sink in. The Hydra Zen line also smells of rose, which is a lovely touch.

Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Lightweight Cream (Deluxe Size)
This is a gorgeous moisturiser from Kiehl's, and its also a very effective moisturiser. I loved using this little sample jar, and I do own it in the full size. I used this as part of daytime skincare routine, and it made a little bit glowy and hydrated throughout the day. Also, due to it being a lightweight moisturiser I sank into the skin straight away.

L'Occitane Ultra Thirst Quenching Gel (Deluxe Size)
This is a latest moisturiser from L'Occitane, and its a lovely lightweight gel moisturiser which sinks into the straight away as well as giving a massive boost of hydration. I would recommend this to anyone who has normal/ combination skin and is looking to give it an extra boost of hydration. It would be great to use through the colder months.

Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Serum
See Above

Herbivore Lapis Balancing Facial Oil (Deluxe Size)
This is a more natural balancing facial oil, but its one you can feel working as soon as you apply it to the skin. Now despite the small size I managed to get around six months of alternate nightly use, which I think is excellent. This is one of the more effective balancing oils I have tried, and its also extremely lightweight so it sinks in straight away and gets to work on balancing out any oils. Lovely product, and I would love to try some more Herbivore products.

M&S Island Sunset Body Lotion
This is a lovely body lotion from M&S in the Island Sunset fragrance. I actually purchased this as part of a fragrance gift set, so I'm a little unsure if you can buy this body lotion individually. But the fragrance on this body lotion actually held on to the skin very well, as I could still smell it the following day. The Island Sunset scent is Sea Salt and Amber.

Lancome Genifique Serum (Sample Size)
Don't be fooled by the size of these sample sizes, as I got around six weeks worth of use out of both of these. I use this as part of daytime skincare routine, and it sinks into the skin after a short while. My skin has also reacted well to Lancome's Genifique serum ever since I have been getting the samples.
