December Empties

So it's nearly the end of another month (and another year!) and so it's time for another empties post! This month I ran out of...

Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser 250ml - £19.70 (online price)
I've mentioned this product before on my blog but never done a full review, so if you'd be interested in reading one please let me know! This bottle has lasted me about 4, maybe 5, months and is one that I re-purchase time and time again. The thick clay like formula is perfect for cleansing my oily skin but not drying it out.
Re-purchase? Yes.

Garnier Fresh Essentials Refreshing Cleansing Lotion 200ml - £3.35
I've been using this to remove makeup on both my face and eyes before cleansing. It's suitable for normal to combination skin and works really well, not leaving my face greasy or dry afterwards. 
Re-purchase? I went to - but then picked up one from the Simply Essentials range instead as it was on offer!

Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Daily Maintenance Shampoo and Daily Nourish Conditioner 200ml - £2.00-£3.00 per bottle
Pro:Voke purple shampoo and conditioner are great value and fantastic quality. They help neutralise the brassiness in blonde hair and help prevent colour fading, whilst boosting moisture and shine. So they've been the perfect products for my highlighted hair!
Re-purchase? No - only because I've decided to stop having blonde highlights and embrace the darker side!

Soap and Glory Hand Food 50ml - £2.50
This mini Hand Food has been one of my handbag essentials since the colder weather hit. I think this will always be one of my favourite hand creams - I love the scent and the thick formula is so hydrating but not at all greasy. 
Re-purchase? Yes eventually - however I have a mini L'Occitane one that's next in line to use!

Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer 7.5ml - Magazine Freebie
This was such a great freebie and has lasted ages! I also cut off the top so I could use every last bit. I don't think much of it as a primer to be honest, but I love the brightening effect (it's a baby pink colour) and have been using it on my eyes under concealer. 
Purchase full size? I have a second freebie to use up yet but I don't think I'd buy the full size because of the price. Apparently Technic do a cheap dupe, so I'll probably check this out instead.

What products have you used up this month?
