December 2016 Empties 

Well, it’s time to round off the years empties with the products that I used up in the month of December. This month I decided to try and use up some of my sample sized products in an effort to destash a little bit!

My favourite thing that I used up this month is the Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint. This was a sample that I got in my Feel Unique Pick n Mix a couple of months ago and I got it in the shade Alaska Light 2, which in all honesty was a tad to dark for me but once I’d mixed it in with a moisturiser it worked great. It had a good amount of coverage and it made my skin look radiant. I would definitely like to try this is a lighter shade and see how I get on with it when used alone.

Something else I finished this month which I quite liked was the Lancôme Energie De Vie. This was a serum that I applied underneath my moisturiser in the mornings. It’s a lovely smooth liquid and it has a fresh, light scent. Although I liked this I don’t think I will be purchasing it because 1. I think it is probably quite expensive and 2. I have other serum products that I would like to use up.

I also used up another Lancôme product this month and that was a sample size of the Visionnaire Advanced Multi Correcting Cream. To be honest I wasn’t really that fussed about this, it was fine, it just wasn’t really any different from the 100s of other creams I have in my stash. Definitely nothing special.

I also used up another serum as well as the above Lancôme one and that was the Avon Anew Youth Maximising Serum. I found this serum very sticky & as I can tend to get oily sometimes that is not really what I’m looking for from my skincare products. 

I got a sample of the Dior Dream Skin from my local counter and as it was only small that was something else I finished this month. I wasn’t really impressed with this to be honest because it had a sort of sheen to it that was visible on my skin and I just didn’t like it. 

Finally, I used one full sized product up and that was the Nurture Replenish Face Wash. I really enjoyed using this facewash, it left my skin feeling really fresh and clean and afterwards it was super soft and smooth. 

What did you enjoy using in December?
