Empties – November 2016

So it’s time for the round-up of my November empties and it’s quite a list! Starting off with Haircare:

L’Occitane Repairing Shampoo


I’ve had this L’Occitane Repairing Shampoo a few times and reviewed it here as part of a previous empties post. This time it was a travel size as part of a set that I’m working my way through. I always feel special when I use L’Occitane products – I think it’s the scent of nature that’s intoxicating! A full 300ml size is currently £14.45 here.

L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo


This one has been a lifesaver – especially when I’ve been too tired to wash my hair and then realised in the morning that I have a work meeting or a blogger event to go to! It’s easy on the pocket too at just £3.99 and is currently on offer at £1.98 here.

OUAI Repair Conditioner, Finishing Creme, and Repair Shampoo

Ouai (2)

Yes, these are Jen Atkins creations so they have the celebrity factor, and yes they have a quirky name that has led to content creators going crazy with their puns but this OUAI haircare brand is more than that. So sad to have run out of these gorgeous products and am struggling to find replacements that match up. Here’s my detailed review and here’s where you can buy them yourselves priced from £20.

And here’s the Skincare:

Dermalogica C12 Pure Bright Serum

What can I say about Dermalogica that hasn’t already been said? It’s a classy brand that’s serious about your skin. I’ve reviewed the Power Bright range including the C12 Pure Bright Serum here. I had it for a while before I realised how much my skin needed vitamin C and once I caught on I used it every day. You can catch on here it’s priced £79.80.

Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair


Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair Skin is full of botanicals including cucumber, butcher broom and arnica. Also vitamins B5, A, C, and E it’s just what’s needed this time of year. I’ve reviewed it here and you can get it here priced at £38.90.

DHC Face Wash


I just love everything about the Japanese brand DHC and this DHC Face Wash has been a staple of my day and night routine. It’s suitable for sensitive/dry skin types and is plant-based to carefully wash away impurities. I use a balm cleanser to remove make-up first and then use this to leave my skin feeling supple, clean, and soothed. There’s a more detailed review here and you can buy it priced at £23.50 here.

Estechoc Cambridge Beauty Chocolate


No, I haven’t got confused – this chocolate is supposed to be included in the skincare section of this post! Now  – I’ve reviewed Estechoc in full here but the message is that your skin is protected, inflammation is reduced and oxygen levels in your skin are increased which means healthier younger-looking skin. I found the most noticeable difference was in the strength of my nails.  It costs £35.50 for 3 weeks’ supply here.

Roger & Gallet Beauty Vinegar

This Roger & Gallet Beauty Vinegar comes from a range that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with. I love the history, the concept, and its effects equally! With the first flower and fruit-based cleansing vinegars appearing in the 18th century they became a legendary treatment for perfecting and toning skin complexion. Inspired by this tradition, Roger & Gallet have reinvented the beauty vinegar for daily use to purify and refresh skin. I’ve been using this at the toner stage of my cleansing routine and have reviewed it in full here and you can buy it here priced at £15.

Well, lovely followers, that’s it for my November empties and next time I write an empties post it will be 2017! Do let me know what your favourites have been this month.
