Empties #15

Well, well, well, what do we have here?  More empty bottles?  It must be time for another empties post!

Lets see what products I've been using up this time...

Victoria's Secret Pure Seduction Smoothing Body Scrub

First up is the Victoria's Secret Smoothing Body Scrub (buy here if you're in America) in the scent Pure Seduction.  This is a gorgeous sugar scrub that smells of red plum and freesia, very fruity and floral.  The scent lingers on the skin too and I love that Victoria's Secret sell a range of products in this scent.  I bought the fragrance mist at the same time as I bought this scrub and I've really enjoying using the two together, although I'm miles off finishing the fragrance mist.  You can read all about my Victoria's Secret UK haul here.  I can't buy this where I live but when I visit Westfields then I will repurchase it.  I'm going too so I'll pick up some then, I might try some other scents too as they're all the same fabulous gritty texture.
Scholl Cracked Heel Repair Cream

I bought the Scholl Cracked Heel Repair Cream (buy here) on a whim in the airport last year before I went on holiday.  My feet always get really dry when I'm walking around abroad and my heels crack like nothing else- they get SO sore, cracked and sometimes bleed.  I put this on for a couple of days running and I couldn't believe how much it helped my feet.  I didn't think it would be very effective but combined with a little gentle filing, it really, really helped to get rid of the cracks in my heels.  I'd definitely repurchase this.

The Avene Extremely Rich Compensating Cream (full review here, buy here) is ideally suited to those with very dry skin, even those with really sensitive skin.  It is an incredibly thick cream that I reserve for applying when I have a cold as my skin goes really dry and flaky around my nose and this cream helps to pull my skin back around.  I probably wouldn't repurchase it again as this is my second pot of this and I'd quite like to try something else now but I would recommend this to those with dry skin, particularly to use in the winter time as it really soothes the skin and deeply moisturises it.

The Dr Organic Rose Otto Hand and Nail Cream (full review here, buy here) is a really lovely hand cream.  It sinks into the skin pretty quickly and is really moisturising without being greasy or leaving a film on the skin.  I have the 20ml travel size that I've repurchased several times and I would definitely repurchase again.  I like to keep this in my bag and apply it throughout the day to keep my hands soft and looking youthful.  Dr Organic are actually holding a competition to be the face of their brand.  All you have to do is head on over to their Facebook page and upload a couple of photos and fill in a form and you could win a glossy photo shoot, luxury weekend for two and the opportunity to win a contract with Premier Model Management.  So if you're confident, healthy and beautiful inside and out then you could be in with a chance!

The biggest let down of the bunch was the Catwalk by TIGI Your Highness Nourishing Conditioner from the Volume Collection (buy here).  I bought this with the matching shampoo but I used that up quite a while ago.  As a shampoo and conditioner, this duo are lovely- they smell great, clean the hair and mildly condition it BUT I found that they don't add volume to the hair which is why I opted for them over the other hair care duos in Sallys.  I wouldn't repurchase them as I like products that do what they say on the tin and this doesn't.

Warm Cinnamon Nights is a bath and shower gel by the brand Treacle Moon (full review here, buy here).  This is a very warming scent that makes you feel cosy when using it.  Despite being a limited edition product last Christmas, Warm Cinnamon Nights is still available in a huge 500ml bottle, exclusively at Tesco for a purse friendly £2.99.
