Product Empties- February Edition

It's time for another product empties post and frankly this time I was surprised at the small number of products I ended up using in February. 

1. Zara Home candle Feuille de Figuier. As far as I'm aware this particular scent is no onger available but Zara Home releases limited edition candles every couple of months and normally releases several different scents at once. I love their candles. They're budget friendly and have a nice throw. 

2. L'Occitane foot cream. This one is intended for dry skin and one could easily tell as it's very heavy and needs to be massaged well into the skin to be absorbed. I personally found it to be too rich for what I require but nonetheless this is yet another good product from the brand. 

3. L'Occitane Cherry Blossom hand cream. This one is yet another mini sized product I found in my advent calendar. As with all the brand's hand creams this has been lovely. 

4. L'Occitane Moisturizing Lip Balm. This lip balm was very different from what I normally go for. It's very moisturizing but it's not a typical balm. I would say it looks and feels slightly like a lipgloss which was a bit strange to get used too. But it does the job well. 

5. The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion. I love this range from TBS and this lotion was a nice one too. It's not too heavy and is only lightly scented. The scent lingers for a while too but is pretty pleasant. The pump is handy too. It is easily absorbed and would recommend it for normal skin.

6. Nuxe Lait Demaquillant Confort. I've mentioned this one too many times now. This is a staple in my skin care routine and one I always have a backup at hand. 

7. Cattier Masque Argile. This is yet another French pharmacy gem. Essentially it is a very good green clay mask. It feels refreshing and does a superb job at purifying my skin. As with typical French pharmacy skincare this is pretty budget friendly too.

8. Yankee Candle wax tarts: Spiced Orange: Didn't really enjoy this one much as it hardly had any throw. 
Christmas Memories: I love this one and will make sure I have a couple of these come next Christmas. It's the perfect winter/holiday scent. Spicy and warm, this one was great to burn.

MAC Zac Posen Dangerously Red

MAC has just released a new collection, this time in collaboration with fashion extraordinaire Zac Posen. The collection itself is a small one and the item that called on to me the most was one of the three lipsticks. As expected it is the red lipstick that has a pink hue named Dangerously Red. It is classified as a matte formula but it does look a bit as if having a slight satin finish instead.

Dangerously Red is slightly similar to Mac Diva-ish which is a pink amplified formula.

The packaging is simple and sleek, a bit reminiscing of Nars audacious square lipstick cases but matte, which also reflects Zac Posen's sublimely polished silhouettes he creates. 

In Geneva this collection is Globus exclusive but is also available online.
