It’s been a while since I did an empties post and it just so happens I had a few lying around so here goes…..
Sanctuary White Lily & Damask Rose Body Wash
I’ve been a huge fan of Sanctuary products for such a long time now, in fact it was my first introduction to the world of Spas and Spa treatment/products.
Thanks to Boots and the amazing 3 for 2 at Christmas I can pretty much guarantee a treat from a loved one, not only do they offer fantastic value gift sets but quality is second to none.
If you’ve read my previous posts I absolutely love roses and their scent, so I was excited to try the White Lily and Damask Rose scent – it sounded so sultry however from what I understand it’s a hybrid rose which is often harvested for perfumery and it’s petals are edible! Mixed together with the White Lily and you have a delicately fragranced scent that can only be described as elegance!
The body wash also has beads which burst on contact with your skin. It’s not a big lathering so if you like to get your soap n suds on, but leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft. For extra softness I used the body lotion from the same range.
For me this is a definite re-purchase, I love the scent, how my skin feels after use and the price. At £5.50 for 250ml it’s a small price to pay for a little luxury.
Lee Stafford Here Come The Curls Creme Lite Hair Cream
As a girl blessed/cursed with naturally curly hair, I’m forever in search of the perfect product, that tames the frizz and leaves you with curls to die for without the crispness that remind you of your school days (if you’re my age then you know exactly what I mean!)
Enter Lee Stafford and his amazing Creme Light, all hail the pretty pink tube! I’m a big fan of hair creams, especially when it comes to my sorting my curls out. Apply to damp hair and style as normal or style and go (my preferred method…especially when I’m the school run) I love that this particular cream is specifically for finer hair, as hair cream can be a little heavy especially if you “accidentally” go overboard with the cream (Guilty as charged!)
As with all Lee Stafford’s products, they look great, smell great and work a treat. I’m left with endless waves that look great, healthy and feel soft to touch.
ATM this is my go-to product when it comes to going “au natural” with the hair.
JR Naturorganics Organic Mandarin and Chamomile Moisturiser
I’ve not heard of the brand, so I was pleased to see a little sample in my Beauty Blogger Box in April. Founded in the UK, JR Naturorganics provide natural skincare products which are SLS/SLES, paraben, phthalates, and silicone free not to mention they’ve taken into consideration vegans, and those with dairy, gluten, and peanut allergies. So if you tick any of these listed, this is definitely a company you need to check out.
I’m a fan of naturally fragrant products and the sweet scent of Mandarin comes through well. Packed with loads of goodness including avocado, jojoba and lavender, they have carefully curated the perfect ingredients to create a lovely hydrating moisturiser.
The consistency of the cream was quite thick for my liking but absorbed well into my skin, and though the cream has skin balancing ingredients, I found cream made my skin more oily than usual.
I should say that this cream is recommended for normal to sensitive skin which isn’t my skin at all, though having checked out other fellow bloggers posts on this product, the overall feedback is a positive one.

Vichy Purete Thermale Perfecting Toner
Ah Vichy, can you do any wrong? Nope not in my eyes. I just love pretty much ALL their products that I’ve tried, but I’m a massive fan of their cleansing range. So I figured it was time I gave their Purete Thermale range a whirl.
Created for sensitive skin and enriched with their thermal spa water, this range for me feels like a treat for my skin. It smells and feels wonderful. The scent is fresh and leaves my skin fully cleansed and smooth without drying it out.
Along with the toner I bought the cleansing gel but I’ve only just started using, so far so good, but I’ll give you more deets soon.
With Vichy they always deliver great quality at affordable prices, so if you’re after a little treat from the high street (or online) I urge you to give them a try,and if you’re looking for something for your sensitive skin, that’s delicately fragranced and without all the nonsense like parabens etc… then this brand is for you!
Available online and in Boots stores
So what do you think? Have you tried any of these products? Do you have any recommendations for me to try I’m always looking for new products and new brands to discover.
Lots of love
