My First Empties of 2019, There’s Quite a Few Here!

My First Empties of 2019 title image. Behind the text is a photo of a lot of empty bottles and jars in a rose gold basket

I’ve always meant to do empties posts, I just tend to find that I go for ages without having any and then within a week everything I use regularly is finished. I love reading or watching them when other people do them as it shows what you actually use and like rather than a review of something you’ve been using for a few weeks or days.

As I’ve been organising my wardrobe, I’m only part way at the moment, I’ve ended up getting all the random stuff that got thrown into this basket I got for empties so now it can finally be used as I wanted it to be. I didn’t plan on it being overflowing before I did my first post though! I’ll try to keep them shorter, maybe after every ten empties, I didn’t realise how much was in there until I emptied it earlier! As there are so many I’ll try to keep them short and I’ll link to any I’ve done reviews on so you can see more about them.

Review: The Body Shop Festive Sack of Berry Bon Bon Delights Christmas Gift

the-body-shop-festive-sack-berry-bon-bon-1

I’m always a fan of berry scents, I’m not sure why but there’s something comforting about them to me, so when I saw the Festive Sack of Berry Bon Bon Delights on the Body Shop website as early release online I had to try it. I tend to either miss out on limited edition Christmas scents from them because I don’t try them in time to know I like them or I order full sized and then they don’t agree with me for whatever reason. This sack of minis seems a bit expensive at £18 but if you bought these mini sizes separately they’d come to , so it’s actually a bit of a discount if you want to just see if you like them. Also it’s a cute sack and would be a great present for someone.

This set comes with four small sized products, they’re each the smallest size you can buy individually. It has a 50ml Body Butter, 50ml Sugar Body Scrub, 60ml Shower Gel and 30ml Hand Cream. As with everything from the Body Shop it’s all cruelty free. I think that’s a pretty nice range of products and the scent does actually change a bit depending on the base for the product.

The Body Shop Haul: Some New Products and Christmas Gift Sets

It feels so early but a lot of stores are releasing their Christmas products. As I was planning on trying a few of the Body Shop’s new products I saw these two sets and wanted to give the new Christmas scents a try. This year they’re releasing a range of products in Berry Bon Bon (mixed berry sweets), Peppermint Candy Cane (sweet mint) and Vanilla Marshmallow (sweet vanilla, which didn’t appeal to me) and these sacks looked like they’d give a nice range of product types to try as well as meaning I now have some great travel sized products. I was quite good and resisted the advent calendars, for now anyway. I really want the £45 one but I would probably end up with too many advent calendars and no money if I got all the ones I want this year!

Some of the other products I chose are ones I’ve either wanted to try for a while or have just found out about and couldn’t resist. I’ve sort of fallen in and out of love with the Body Shop products over the years as they can be a bit of a single note scent and them being owned by L’Oreal, but their ginger shampoo is amazing and I’m always drawn in by the Christmas scents so I wanted to try them early this year rather than leaving it to the sales and missing out because I don’t know what they smell like.
