Trimming My Stash February 2015 Edition - Empties And Mini Reviews

I'm late again but it's February empties time x It wasn't a vintage performance by any means but I still managed to finish two more products than I did in January

Old Wives Tail Jojoba And Clove Organic Oil Hair Treatment - 100ml
Steam Cream - Jane - 75g
Skin Blossom Therapeutic Bath Soak - 300ml
Primark PS Love Your Skin Oil Balancing Facial Cleansing Wipes - 25 Wipes
Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift And Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm - 100ml
I Love...Cranberry Celebration Nourishing Body Butter - 50ml
Total - 6 Items

Again it was a nice variety of items, with some skin care, some body care and some hair care. I didn't manage to finish any make up in February but I'm just about done with two items so hopefully I'll finish them this month.

1. Old Wives Tail Jojoba And Clove Organic Oil Hair Treatment - 100ml*

This was something that I was sent for review and it was something that I loved but something Mummy Lou nearly worshipped. The smell was amazing and it left my hair feeling like silk. You can read a full review of this fabulous stuff here.

2. Steam Cream - Jane - 75g

This is the second pot of Steam Cream that I've had a whilst I like it I'm still a bit on the fence and I just don't get the hype. The beautiful tins for me are the major selling point and probably the reason why this product has such a cult following. The cream has a nice texture and nice lavender aroma but it just doesn't wow me - I didn't particularly like it on my face so I've been using this as a body cream. I will be reusing the tin for storage but I can't see myself repurchasing another tin unless that is I find the elusive LouLou tin x

3. Skin Blossom Therapeutic Bath Soak - 300ml*

If you watched my January favourites video the you'll probably already know how much I loved this product. The lavender scent was soothing yet intoxicating and it was the perfect product to use before bedtime. You can read a full review of this product here x If I wasn't losing my bath next month then I would definitely repurchase this one.

4. Primark PS Love Your Skin Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes - 25 Wipes

I've lose count of how many packets of these I've used. Containing tea tree I predominantly use these wipes for swatch clean up and for freshening and emergency cleansing

5. Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift And Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm - 100ml

This is one of my favourite cleansers of all time x Packed full of moringa oil, and plant waxes and essential oils, Emma Hardie Moringa Balm smells fabulous and removes literally any type or brand of make up that you can think of. With a melting, balm texture I initially thought that this would be too oily for my skin, but the ingredients are both balancing and moisturising making it suitable for all skin types. It left my skin clean, smooth and radiant. If you have this and you have a stray spot or pimple, pop a little bit of the balm on and it will gradually take away the redness and inflammation. Love, love, love this stuff and although it's pricey I will definitely be repurchasing this once I've used up my cleanser stash.

6. I Love...Cranberry Celebration Nourishing Body Butter - 50ml

Another festive, limited edition product from the I Love line from the year before last. This had a thick creamy texture but it absorbed into the skin quite quickly leaving the skin soft and deliciously scented. The smell of this cream was the real selling point for me - it didn't smell like any of the other cranberry products that I've tried, instead it had a really mouthwatering fruity scent that reminded me a bit of rhubarb. I loved the smell and I'm disappointed that it was a limited edition. I'm now on the lookout for toiletries that smell of rhubarb, so if you know of any please let me know x

So they were my February items but what about March ? Well as I say I'm nearly done with a couple of make up items but for me March will about bath products. The bathroom renovation is getting closer and I still have a bagful of products still to use up. I guess most things can still be used in the shower so I'll be concentrating on things that are specifically for the bath like aromatherapy based products, bath salts, and of course bubble bars and ballistics - sod the water rates - I'll be enjoying my bath while I still have it ha ha. Thanks for reading and if you have any questions on any of the items that I finished please leave me a comment x
