Products I Finished This Month - December 2015

Hello readers,
The holidays are over which means it's time to look at December's empties.

Bath & Body

The favorite this month was the I love... body lotion.  It smelled amazing and was quite moisturizing.  I also liked the Tocca body scrub but found I did need to use a lot of product per use.  I wasn't a big fan of the Gilchrist & Soames body lotion.  It was just too heavily scent and floral for my tastes.

Hand & Nails

Moisture was the theme this month.  Cold weather means I'm going through tons of hand cream and cuticle oil.  I really liked the Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners hand creme.  The Nfu Oh flower oil was quite nice but I found the size too large.  The scent went stale about 2/3rds of the way through the bottle even though I used it daily.  I continue to be in love with Emerald & Ash cuticle oils and have a stockpile of them in my fridge (to retain scent) waiting to be used.


Lots of face care this month.  I really liked the Micahel Todd Honey and Oat cleanser.  It was gentle but effective.  I also really liked the Julep Glycolic Hand Scrub which I actually used on my face since I prefer grittier scrubs.  The Notoriously Morbid Santa Kissers lip balm smelled amazing.  It is a lighter balm so may not be enough for the rest of winter, but I do have a bunch of different scents waiting to be used up.  I was very disappointed by the Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel.  It was so runny that it was hard to actually get it on my face.  It smelled awful and I didn't notice any difference in my skin even after leaving it on for longer than the recommended time.


The usuals are here along with a sample of Parlor shampoo.  Nothing special, I wouldn't buy it again when there are comparable drugstore alternatives.  I really like the Moroccan My Shine conditioner and will probably mix it into my hair care staples.

Happy polishing,
