Empties: Miniature Edition

Empties Miniature Edition

End of the month again, so time to have a look at the products I finished this month. It is a bit of a special edition, as each of these products is a tester. I had so many of these lying around and decided to work my way through them and collect them all in a single post.

Vanilla Bliss: Antipodes Vanilla Pod Day Cream

Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream

A great fragrance isn’t a true necessity for a skincare product, some with sensitive skin would even argue against it. One of the reasons I adore natural skincare is because they often smell amazing using completely natural ingredients that don’t tend to produce any nasty reactions. A nice fragrance can make all the difference for a product and I have yet to find a greater example than the Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream.

Natural Essentials: Dr Jackson’s 05 Face and Eye Essence

A couple of months ago, I asked a the lovely Liberty London team a question during their regular #libertybeauty chat sessions and won two amazing products by natural brand Dr. Jackson’s.
