Trimming My Stash - January 2017 Edition - Empties And Mini Reviews

Well that's the first month of 2017 out of the way, and do you know what good riddance to it. January wasn't a great month for me in a lot of ways so I'm pleased that it's done and dusted and that I can now hopefully move forward with optimism.

The Body Shop Glazed Apple Shower Gel - 60ml
Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner - 250ml

Total - 2 Items

I guess January 2017's empties probably sum up my start to the year as a whole - lots of endeavour, enthusiasm and effort but with little or no reward! I've been digging half empty bottle, tubes and jars out of my stash and trying to use them up but it was very much a case of close but not cigar - I know already that February is going to be a way better month but in January I only managed to finish 2 beauty products.

1. The Body Shop Glazed Apple Shower Gel - 60ml

It's a little one but they all count - This little shower gel was part of The Body Shop's 2015 festive offering, and although I wasn't sure about it at first this scent really grew on me. In the beginning I wanted this to by a pure apple fragrance, a bit like one of The Body Shop fragrances of my childhood, Green Apple, unfortunately it wasn't to be instead it's a mixture of apple, and orchard fruits, combined with a sugary sweetness that makes your mouth water. Alas this fragrance made way for Spiced Apple in 2016 which I thankfully I also love but I still have a few Glazed Apple bits in my stash, ready and waiting for when I need that sugared apple hit.

2. Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner - 250ml

What can I possibly say about this product that hasn't already been said? Championed by the skincare Queen herself, Caroline Hirons this product has a cult following, and I can most definitely see why. This product that contains 5% glycolic acid takes the humble toner to the next level. A lot of people panic when they here the words glycolic, but this product is perfect for even the most sensitive of skins, it is alcohol free and it contains extracts of ginseng, aloe vera and which hazel to both purify and soothe the skin . Obviously anyone can be allergic to anything but this toner isn't an afterthought it contains good for you, skin care ingredients that can make a real difference. In my experience this toner brings my skin back to life, my skin looks brighter and more even, and it feels smoother.  I really can't recommend this product highly enough, I was sceptical at first but it really has made a difference to my skin. You can buy at a variety of places including Marks and Spencer , QVC UK, Look Fantastic, Cult Beauty, and of course from the Pixi Beauty website

So that was a pretty disappointing start to the year but onwards and upwards! As I say I'm just about done on a couple of bits already so hopefully February will be a better month all round x Thanks for reading and if you have any questions please leave me a comment and don't forget if your doing something similar this year or if you've posted a empties post or video recently then I would love to see it so link me up below x
