Empties & speedy reviews #36 featuring Jo Malone, Sarah Chapman, Grow Gorgeous, Pixi and more!

To balance my recent purchases, I have plenty of empties this month so I don't feel too guilty about buying lots of products when I know that I am finishing up plenty of products at the same time! I have a good mixture of skincare, bath and body, haircare and a few miscellaneous products so let's get started!

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse: I absolutely love the solid cleansing oil part of this cleanser and whilst I like the cream, I would only repurchase the oil if they were sold separately. The solid oil completely creaks down every last scrap of makeup and it is extremely gentle, which makes it perfect for even sensitive skins. It leaves the skin thoroughly cleansed but not at all stripped. I will probably repurchase but if they are sold separately, I will definitely repurchase the solid cleansing oil.

Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray: This must be my fifth bottle of this spray, which tells me how much I love it. It is one of the few facial sprays that actually adds some moisture to my skin and it is the perfect product to use after exfoliation to balance the skin. I have 3 other facial sprays on the go at the moment but I will definitely repurchase in the future.

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Intense Hydrating Booster: I love this hydrating serum and this is the third bottle that I have used, The oily-water texture is different from other serums but it really packs a punch in terms of hydration. A little bit of this goes a long way so although it is expensive, it lasts a long time. I have already repurchased.

Bath & Body:

Rituals Express Your Soul Invigorating Shower Oil: I adore the uplifting, refreshing scent of this shower oil - it is the perfect way to start the day, especially in summer! If you are a fan of citrus scents, then you should try this range! This is limited edition so I might repurchase even though I usually use budget shower products.

Lancaster Tan Maximizer After Sun: This is definitely the best after sun that I've ever used - it really does extend my tan and it nourishes and soothes the skin after a day in the sun. It is more expensive than regular after suns but it is totally worth the money. I already have a back up.

Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose & Shea Butter Body Repairing Cream: I love this luxurious, nourishing body cream. I'm a fan of rose scents as long as they are authentic and not too old fashioned. This cream really cocoons the skin, leaving it feeling really soft. I usually use budget body products but I may repurchase in the future.

Mokosh Melon & Cucumber Body Balm: I adore the fresh scent of this body balm and it was the perfect post-bath treat for my skin because it leaves the skin soft and moisturised. I may purchase a full size in the future.


Revlon Equave Hydro Nutritive Detangling Conditioner: This is my favourite leave in conditioner because it really helps in terms of detangling my hair but it doesn't weigh it down at all. It also has a very fresh scent, which I love. I have another leave in conditioner at the moment but I will definitely be repurchasing in the future.

Grow Gorgeous Hyaluronic Density Conditioner: I absolutely love this conditioner (and the matching shampoo) - unlike some thickening products, this doesn't just add volume at the roots but makes my hair feel and look thicker overall. It also really nourishes my hair and smells beautiful too. I will definitely be repurchasing.


Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Treatment: I absolutely love this lip balm - it exfoliates and moisturises the lips leaving them soft and supple. I have already repurchased.

Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne: This was a gift and not a scent that I would personally choose because it's a little too sweet for my taste. It isn't overly intense but I personally prefer either a citrus scent or something woody/spicy. I won't repurchase but I have Lime, Basil & Mandarin and Wood Sage & Sea Salt, which are more my type of fragrances.

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist: I love this spray - it is like an instagram filter for the face because it softens the look of everything. It adds lots of luminosity to the skin, which I personally love but this wouldn't not work well for those with oily skin. I already have a back up.

Champneys Heavenly Days Sleep Pillow Mist: I usually use This Works Pillow Sprays but my nephew & niece gave me a Champneys Sleep Set at Christmas so I decided to give this spray a go and I love it! I spray it on my pillow and bed linen and let it settle before lying down. It has a very relaxing scent and it has definitely helped me to slip into a deep sleep. I didn't think that any other pillow spray would live up to the This Works one but this really does. So much so, I have already repurchased it!

Phew! That was a long one! What have you finished up recently? Have you tried any of the products I've mentioned? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
