Empties & speedy reviews #17 featuring L'Occitane, Sachajuan, Janina, Estee Lauder, This Works & more!

It doesn't seem like very long since my last empties post buy my empties bag is full to the brim again! As always, there are more body products that anything else, but also quite a few haircare and then some skincare and miscellaneous. There are lots of repurchases in here and some products that were new to me so I'll share my speedy reviews with you. Let's get started!


Kerastase Bain De Force Artchitecte Shampoo: I seemed to fly through this 500ml bottle. I really like the Resistance range from Kerastase and find that it really helps my damaged hair. I am using a different repairing shampoo at the moment but I will definitely repurchase this at some point.

Sachajuan Intensive Repair Conditioner: This is my first product from the Sachajuan brand and I really like it. This really is an intensive conditioner and only a small amount was needed to condition my long hair. I really like the scent and the way that it left my hair feeling strong and well nourished without feeling greasy. This will definitely be repurchased.

Unite 7 Seconds Conditioner: I really like this leave in conditioner and detangler but it's pretty expensive and I won't be repurchasing at the moment because I can only buy it online and it costs£16.90 plus P&P. It is very good at helping to detangle my hair & helping to prevent breakage. If I could find a local stockist I'd consider repurchasing but for the moment, I will try to find a less expensive product that does a similar job.

Tangle Teezer: It was about time that I replaced this because this one has seen better days. I really like the tangle teezer to help glide through my knots. I had a brief flirtation with The Wet Brush but I think ultimately I prefer the Tangle Teezer but would love if it had a handle. I have already repurchased this.


Nivea Q10 Firming Body Lotion: I love Nivea body lotions and this is one of my favourite from the brand. It absorbs easily and quickly and leaves my body very moisturised. I will always repurchase this!

Palmolive Feel The Massage Exfoliating Shower Gel: I don't always include shower gels but I really like this one because it gives a gentle exfoliation every day and it has a really fresh scent. I will repurchase when it's on offer!

Garnier Oil Nourishing Beauty Scrub: This is a really brilliant budget body scrub. The oils in it really help to hydrate my skin at the same time as it is being exfoliated. I have bought this several times already and have already repurchased it.

L'Occitane Amande Tonic Body Oil: This is my 3rd bottle of this oil and I really love it. It is very moisturising and feels very light on the skin so it doesn't leave a greasy residue. It feels very refreshing on the skin but I can't say if my skin is any more toned. I have already repurchased this!

L'Occitane Amande Lighter Legs: I bought this to use on the flight to Corfu in August and whilst on holiday also because sometimes my feet swell up on flights & in the sun. I didn't think this cream was any different to a regular foot cream and it didn't leave my legs feeling particularly "lighter" so for that reason, I wouldn't repurchase.

Clarins Tonic Body Treatment Oil: I had a mini bottle of this oil that I received as a gift with purchase. This oil is very moisturising and I can definitely feel a difference in my skin when I use this. I love this oil and at some point will repurchase the full size.

Molton Brown Blossoming Honeysuckle & White Tea Hand Cream: This was one of my birthday gifts and I absolutely love the scent. This is a really moisturising hand cream and it doesn't leave a residue on my hands, which is one of my pet hates with hand cream. I would love to purchase this at some point.


Hydraluron Moisture Jelly: I didn't like this product as a moisturiser but I wanted to use it up so I used it as a serum before using oils and moisturiser. It is nowhere near moisturising or hydrating enough for my skin and I was disappointed because I loved the serum. I definitely wouldn't repurchase this.

No7 Beautiful Skin Eye Make-up Remover: I absolutely love this bi-phase eye make-up remover. It removes ALL of my make-up in one sweep and I have been using it for years. It doesn't make my eyes sting and I don't have to rub my eyes - result! I will always repurchase this.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair: This is a holy grail product for me. It is brilliant for healing scars, moisturising, improving the texture of the skin and general anti-ageing. I will forever repurchase this product!


Janina Extra Strength Ultra Whitening Toothpaste: This is a repurchase. I love this toothpaste for making my teeth look whiter without the need for harsh abrasives. I have already purchased another whitening toothpaste from this brand.

This Works Sleep Plus + Pillow Spray: This product has been a life saver for me. It really does make a massive difference to my sleep and I am now sleeping through the night thanks for this product. I cannot be without this product now & have already repurchased it, except in the large size this time!

If you have made it to the end, well done! Have you used any of these products? What have you been finishing up lately?
