December Empties

Here is what I used up in December.

After using Native Unearthed's Coconut and Vanilla and finding it highly effective, but gritty on the pits, I tried this smooth, soft cream. I used a little spatula to scoop it out, rather than having it all under my nails, the trouble I've had with other natural deodorants. Little melting is required as it's so soft and goes on so nicely. 

What a fabulous deodorant this is. No smell at the end of the day, despite the level of activity and easy to apply. I can't recommend Native Unearthed highly enough.

Ingredients: Activated Charcoal, Arrowroot, Bicarbonate of Soda, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Rosehip Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil.

This 100% organic oil was the first one I tried when I started with facial oils around last December. You can tell how many other oils I have been using as I have only just finished this one. I was keen to use it up though as I did really like it. It had a nice scent and was easily absorbed. Not all Botanics products are as pure as this, but I would recommend this one.

Ingredients: Prunus amygdalus dulcis (Sweet almond) oil*, Argania spinosa kernel oil*, Rosa canina fruit oil*, Limonene**, Citronellol**, Pelargonium graveolens leaf oil*, Geraniol**, Citrus aurantium sinensis peel extract*, Linalool**, Citrus aurantium bergamia (Bergamot) fruit oil*, Citral**, Citrus limon (lemon) peel oil*. * Certified Organic Ingredient  ** Natural occurring in essential oil Ingredients contained within this/these product/s are certified as organic by The Soil Association and/or Ecocert for use in cosmetic products.

I reviewed this little er, beauty here. I've already purchased my second pot because it's probably my favourite cleansing balm of the year. It smells and feels great and has a lovely exfoliating nature which leaves your face feeling amazing every night. I love using this to take off my make-up.
