Six Empties...

There's something so satisfying about using up a product. I think part of my chimes that I've now got space on my shelf, both revealing things I'd forgotten about and leaving room for something new to slot in. The other part of me is pleased knowing that I must have really liked said product as I used up every last drop/glob/spritz of it!

1. La Roche Posay Serozinc - The raved about anti-bacterial, calming mist to fend of irritated skin and break outs. I've written a post on this before here so wont go on. In summary - before it I was dealing with a rather bad series of breakouts; now, I have clear skin. IT IS EXCELLENT!

2. Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet - This was a sample that came with a purchase of the Caudalie SOS serum (which I wholly adore). I've used this before and it's fantastic. I would recommend to sensitive, dehydrated combination skin types due to it's light, whipped texture and soothing properties. My only issue is that it isn't rich enough for me this time of year, however in the summer it is brilliant!

3. Burt's Bees Almond & Milk Hand Cream - Gorgeous, thick, greasy and smells amazing. I work in a lab and my hands are in terrible condition from the repetitive cleansing, however this is divine at night time and really puts the moisture back in. Plus, if you like almond scents then this will be right up your street! I equally adore the banana hand cream in a pot, which I repurchased when this one died on me.

4. Garnier Hand Repair Intensive Restoring Hand Cream - This is my absolute favourite drugstore/high street hand cream. It is not greasy at all, but deeply moisturises the skin and contains no mineral oil. It has fantastic ingredients all-round, so for £4.50ish it's a total barg. I will repurchase again and again!!

5. Naked Coco de mer Body Wash - I have lost count of how many of these I have gone through. I always have the body wash and body butter in my stash and never get sick of the scent. Naked is a fantastic natural brand that you can buy in Boots for a reasonable price. Their collection is small but well-thought-out and  this is honestly one of my favourite scents in the world - very heady and sensual. No animal testing, no crap ingredients - wonderful ethos.

6. Baylis & Harding Sweet Mandaring & Grapefruit Indulgent Moisturising Hand & Body Lotion - (longest name ever?!) This was given to my by a a friend and it was handy to keep in my bag and use throughout the day on my poor, crusty mitts. I would simply describe it as average. It smells ok, moisturises adequately and has nice enough packaging. But that's about it really...I wouldn't purchase because it doesn't do enough for my needs, but for the average pair of hands then I'm sure this would be fine.

PHEW! You know, I'm really realising just how much hand creams are taking over my life. I hope this has been helpful. If you know of any amazing hand creams that you think I should try, please let me know!
