I'm a bit late on this month's empties but I've got quite a few so hope you enjoy my super-speedy reviews. You've seen all of this stuff before in one guise or another. Some good'uns!

Gatineau Activ Eclat Flash Radiance Serum*
Love this stuff, gorgeous for giving a bit of extra glow but so pricey that I'll not be repurchasing. Definitely good for a gift for a skincare junkie though!

Macadamia Healing Oil Spray*
Love this stuff, a lot. A bit gutted I've run out as it smells gorgeous and the light spray applicator is perfect for giving even coverage.

Blanx Whitening Toothpaste*
A great little whitening toothpaste that is so well known for making a difference to your teeth. I think you're supposed to use this in two week stints but I used it every day - oops!

Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal Instant Anti-Wrinkle Moisturiser*
A really nice lightweight yet nourishing moisturiser. I can't vouch on the anti-wrinkle bit but I really, really enjoyed using this and have a few moisturisers on the go at the moment but they're not as good as this.

VO5 Plump Me Up Dry Shampoo
Standard. You know I love the VO5 dry shampoos!

Mistair Exfoliating Body Wash*
Fab exfoliator for getting rid of fake tan, smells nice and does the job. Not readily available though and the packaging does nothing for me.

Avon Ideal Flawless Foundation
LOVE this foundation. Was totally surprised by this. I'll probably repurchase but I've got loads of foundations so not just yet. One to remember though when I find myself in need!

Dr. Bronner's Organic Almond Castile Liquid Soap
Love this very liquid-y shower gel but love it even more for washing make-up brushes. Smells like marzipan.

Timotei Pure 2-in-1
I've said it before but this really surprised me, I didn't think a 2-in-1 would do such a good job. Smells good and it's natural.

Hope you're having a lovely, relaxing weekend! I'm spending the day in my Christmas pyjamas with a face mask on, catching up on blogs, drinking lots of tea and reading Vogue. There was too much mulled wine at the Christmas party I went to last night!


  1. Didn't expect the Avon foundation to be any good! Will defiantly keep this one in mind next times run out. Great post

  2. Excuse the typos haha! Should've re read before posting lol

  3. The Avon foundation is one of my favourites, I always have a bottle in stock! xo

  4. I love the VO5 dry shampoo! Have just found it and will never buy another dry shampoo again! xx

  5. I've heard good things about the Avon Ideal Flawless foundation and I'm going to try it!

  6. I am also a big fan of the macadamia oil range its soo good smells great and really works at smoothing the cuticles and giving great shine. You should also check out the macadamia hair mask & tigi treatment mask - smells really minty and sweet these work really good to replenish the hair and give amazing shine and softness :O x
