It's time for the final empties post of 2018! How quickly has this year gone!

Sunday Riley Luna - this wasn't technically an empty as I sold it. It was a nice product but I prefer a stronger Retinol. So it was better off going to someone who will love it more!

Aveda Damage Repair Daily Hair Repair - I absolutely loved this leave in conditioner! I got it as part of a beauty box which was great as I probably wouldn't have bought it otherwise as I'd had bad experiences with leave in conditioners in the past. This changed my opinion completely. It's light, hydrating and doesn't weigh hair down. Smells lovely too! I'll definitely buy it again in the future.

A.Florence Balm to Milk Cleanser* - you all know how much I love this cleanser! It's my holy grail, ride or die, it's heaven in a pot - you get the picture. If you've not tried it yet, you're seriously missing out! I've obviously already got a new pot.

Avarelle Herbal Infusion Rosehip Seed Extract Sheet Mask* - This mask was nice enough. I'm not usually that fussed with sheet masks. It was nice and hydrating. Wouldn't buy just because I prefer non sheet masks.

A.Florence Hydration Booster* - another amazing product from A.Florence and another that I've already bought a replacement. This serum does exactly as promised - it hydrates skin perfectly. It's non-sticky and absorbs like a dream.

Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Leave In Conditioner* - I chose this as part of a Latest In Beauty box. It was nice enough but I wouldn't repurchase.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturising Hand Treatment* - I got this last Christmas as part of a set. It's a brilliant hand cream - super rich and long lasting. It was the only thing that kept my knuckles from cracking over winter. Would definitely buy again.

Herbivore Lapis Oil - Such a fabulous oil. It's rich and hydrating, it soothes and calms skin. It's the best for acne prone skin like mine. I've bought a large bottle already.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream* - Another favourite of mine, although I do prefer the Ultra Rich version more. This version is great for summer as it's light and incredibly hydrating. It smells amazing. I've got a pot of the Ultra Rich version ready to open.

The Body Shop Coconut Body Scrub - This was part of a set from last Christmas. I love anything coconut scented. It wasn't scrubby enough for me though. Wouldn't buy.

REN Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Gel* - The Evercalm range has been my one of my best finds of the year. This cleanser is brilliant. It's quite a runny gel, it has a soft, fresh scent and it's super gentle on your skin. Have re-purchased full sized.

REN Evercalm Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask* - Another winner from the Evercalm range. This mask is like a hug for your face! It's a thick, rich cream that you could sit all evening with it on if you wanted. It hydrates and calms skin brilliantly. Again, I've purchased full size.

Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara - I really liked this mascara. It lengthened, gave volume and curled my lashes.  I did have smudging issues though but I seem to have this with most mascaras now! As this was a mini, the wand was really short and that made it a bit awkward to apply. Obviously wouldn't be an issue with the full sized! Would buy again. 

Clarins Exfoliating Body Scrub - This was a free sample with an order. Nice enough, left my skin soft but was nothing special. Wouldn't buy.

Ven Effect Micro-Exfoliant - It's funny as I've got through a few of these and have previously raved about this cleanser but I've gone off it! I've been favouring gentle cleansers rather than scrubby ones. It's still a nice cleanser though.

Skinceuticals Ultra Facial Defence SPF 50+* - This is a great SPF. It's light, hydrating, non-greasy and doesn't leave a white cast. I would purchase it in the future.

Along Came Betty Clean Around The Clock Creamy Shower Wash - This was part of a set from last Christmas. Has a lovely peach scent. Nothing of note other than that! Wouldn't buy again.

Drunk Elephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream - Holy grail AM eye cream! Already bought full sized as you can see. This cream is so smoothing to the under eye area, there's nothing like it. I love it and will never be without it!

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream - I've already bought a large version of this gorgeous cream. It smells amazing, it's so rich and creamy without being greasy. Love it.

Dr Teal's Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution Sooth & Sleep with Lavender* - I got this from Boots Review Panel. Wasn't impressed at all! They smelt gorgeous when first added to the bath then the scent completely goes. Didn't soften skin at all. Wouldn't buy.

Drunk Elephant Beste No.9 Jelly Cleanser - This was a funny one. The first few uses I wasn't impressed but then I found myself reaching for it more and more! Now I like it! It's a lovely textured cleanser, very gentle and leaves skin feeling great. I've got another small bottle that was part of a set. Don't think I love it enough to buy on it's own though.

Verso Deep Hydration Mask* - I got this free with a purchase. Hands down the best sheet mask I've ever used! It's a gorgeous gel rather than paper and it's in two parts. It hugs your face and fits well. My skin was so plumped and hydrated looking after use. The downside - the price. They're expensive at £70 for 4! I might treat myself if they're ever on offer.

Verso Super Facial Serum - sample. I love the night cream and eye serum from this range so had high hopes for the serum! I wasn't disappointed. The entire range packs a punch - you can tell the Retinol is strong and effective. Again, it's expensive but I'd definitely consider buying it in the future.

And that's it for 2018! Have a happy new year guys!
