I really can’t believe I am two whole months into having my blog. Time flies, huh?! Here is a quick empties post – pretty proud I have managed to complete a few goodies, some better than others, so slowing whittling away at the stash I’ve accumulated.

Label.M Honey Oat Conditioner: God this fragrance was amazing. The most delicious scent, but not moisturising enough for my hair now it’s cooler. Very softening though.
L’Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream: Hands down the best face moisturiser I’ve ever used. Now, I used to work for the company but am not biased -I am going to continue to purchase this moisturiser until the end of time. Or until they discontinue it … which is likely to happen first. Winter/summer/dry/humid it is the best thing for my combination skin. Super hydrating without being creamy or oily, packed full of essential oils and a lovely light and fresh fragrance. One bottle lasts me quite a few months, but less in winter as I use it day and night and my skin gets extra thirsty.
Sample of Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu CC Cream: I have hesitated for about a month now and am still unsure of whether I will purchase this. I found it got a little oily after a few hours for my liking, but felt amazing and was enough coverage while keeping my skin comfortable. The brightening vitamin C is a big drawcard for me, but I think I will try to get hold of another sample. I want to use this for winter because it is drier anyway, but worry about being too shiny still. Hmmm.
The Face Shop Fabulous Volumising Mascara: In-cred-i-ble. Soft, thickening, easy to take off but doesn’t ever smudge (even on the bottom lashes, even from day to night). God I am glad I found this and I am never going back. Except I bought two other mascaras, and now totally regret it every time I touch their thin, lifeless, clumpy brushes to my lashes. Ugh. I am going to discard those and replace this ASAP.
L’Occitane Tonic Body Oil: I have already repurchased this. I have probably used up several bottles of this over the past year alone. Enough said.
L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil: The greatest shower product ever. The only thing I will ever use again to shave my legs. This was a sample size but I have one of the 500ml pumps in my shower at all times, obviously I am a little obsessed.
Ella Baché Serum Marin: OK, this was a long story. I bought it aggeeesss ago because it was recommended, used it a few times, convinced myself it broke me out, then placed it in hiding. Finally, I brought it back out because I knew I had to use it up, but using it consistently over 4 weeks (before it ran out) yielded amazing and unexpected results. If you want something to firm and smooth the skin, this is it. I noticed a measurable difference just in that time alone. My skin was so refined and tightened. The fragrance reminded me slightly of stale seawater, but once I got past that it was love.

I am really excited and nervous about my next post, because it is going to be my first post about make-up! It’s probably going to be terrible, so I apologise in advance for my ridiculous attempt, as I actually know very little about anything make-up related. Until then though…
