C’est fini: Empties Part 1

I love seeing the ’empties’ posts on others’ blogs, because I’m always amazed that they manage to use up skincare or makeup items. I’m ashamed to say that I don’t think I’ve ever really used up anything, especially back in my crazy hoarding days. Now that I’m limiting my purchases and collection, I’m hoping to start putting up plenty of my own ’empties’ posts!


The first thing I’ve used up is L’Occitane’s Shea butter hand cream. I bought this a couple of months back when my hands were in terrible shape, with dry, chapped patches on my knuckles. Not only did this hand cream help heal them, but it’s also kept them away. One caveat – I prefer using this at night, because it can feel slightly heavy/greasy for daytime. A definite repurchase.

The second item that I’ve emptied is the Phyto Phytopanama shampoo. I’ve already repurchased this, because it keeps my hair from being oily and limp. Detailed review coming up soon!

The last one on my empties list is a mini of Lancome’s BiFacil eye makeup remover. This was featured in my November favourites too so you can read a bit more about it there. I’m not repurchasing because I have a few more of these travel sizes to use up!

Okay so my list isn’t very long. But it’s a start, right?! What products have you used up lately? Or do you struggle with finishing up products like me?
