July 2012 Empties

I seem to have finished an insane amount of products this month but I think that's because a lot of them were half empty so didn't take much to finish them completely. I'm guessing I wont have too many products next month though.
july 2012 empties 2
Bed Head Foxy Curls Shampoo & Conditioner - I haven't pictured the conditioner bottle as I had to cut it up to get the last bits out and it didn't look too pretty. These giant bottles have lasted me such a long time so they're really good value for money. The conditioner is pretty standard so I wont be repurchasing but I've already bought another bottle of shampoo when I saw it in Tkmaxx. The shampoo really helped when my eczema first flared up on my scalp as it doesn't contain any sulfates and is very gentle. If you've been having a problem with a itchy or dry scalp I'd recommend giving these a go.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish - I've lost count of how many bottles I've grown through and repurchased! This just works so well with my skin and doesn't leave it feeling dry and tight after washing. I already have several tubes as back up so wont be needing to repurchase it just yet.

Nspa Angel Cake & Hot Butter Fudge Bath Syrups - I completely forgot I had these still from Christmas as they were hiding in the back of my cupboard. I didn't want to use them up as I love the scents so much but they were limited edition. I'm hoping they bring them back this year so I can buy the full size bottle.s

Naked Boost Hair Treatment - I can't tell you how pleased I am to use this up! The tub is giant and for some reason the more I use it the more I come to hate the scent. I can't believe I actually liked it at some point! It smells of very strong flowers and for someone who suffers from really bad hay fever it's just horrible. I love what it does to my hair but wont be buying it again.

Cutex Nail Polish Remover - I seem to go through these so quickly but I guess it doesn't matter too much as they're pretty cheap. I already bought another bottle as soon as I finished this one.

Uniq One Hair Treatment* - This is another scent that I didn't like although I didn't hate it. It's an all in one but I used it as a leave in conditioner but I have to say, I didn't think it made much of a difference. At least nowhere near what Moroccan Oil or V05 Oil does to my hair. I wont be buying the full size.

Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Serum* - This little sample lasted me such a long time! Probably nearly about 2 months of me using it every night which really surprised and impressed me. I love what this does to my skin and the scent so there was no question I was going to buy the full size which I did last month.

Liz Earle Energising Hip & Thigh Gel - I really enjoyed using this product and how it made my skin feel. I definitely like gel moisturisers in the summer as they feel really light on the skin. I'll probably buy the full size at some point when I've used up some more products and when I'm not on a spending ban.

Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser - This is my favourite moisturiser although I'm using the dry version at the moment and have already bought myself a new pot. It feels really light on the skin but very moisturising at the same time. A little also goes a long way.

Schwarkopf Conditioner - I found this when I was sorting through my bathroom cupboard so thought I may as well use it up. It works fine but nothing special and comes in the box of hair dye.

Imperial Leather Star Flower & Pomegranate Bath Cream - This is a really nice bubble bath that smells lovely. Even better is that I managed to get this giant bottle for only £1 in Asda. I'm definitely going to buy this again, and the other scents, when it's next on offer.

Dainty Doll Concealer - I'm so glad to finally finish this concealer. It was a great colour match for me I really didn't like the consistency. It's very dry and feels chalky almost. I think they don't sell this anymore which is probably for the best.

Etat Pur Ultra Rich Nourishing Balm - I really loved this balm until I got to the last couple of uses. It separated and no amount of shaking could get it back to it's original state. I haven't had this for long so I definitely wont be buying the full size now in case the same thing happens.

Soap & Glory Body Butters - I love Soap & Glory body butters as they have great scents and work wonders on the skin. The Daily Smooth body butter smells like their Mist You Madly body spray, bergamot, blackcurrant, magnolia, freesia, vanilla and musk. I only use this on my feet though as I find body butters too thick for everywhere else.

I wasn't a fan of Butter Up though and technically didn't really finish this up. It has a really nice scent of grapeseed and orange but the body butter itself went a bit horrible and old. I got it in a set with Daily Smooth and their original body butter and those two are fine so I don't know what happened to this one.

La Roche-posay Toleraine - This was an ok moisturiser but I wouldn't buy the full size as I really didn't like the scent which I've found with most of the La Roch-posay products.

Benefit Scrub & Cleanser - I found it really hard to get the product out of these benefit samples. There's probably still product left but I just could get it out. I might cut up the bottles but I wasn't so impressed with the products so I might not bother. I wouldn't buy the full sizes but I do love how they smell. They remind me of a Ralph Lauren perfume I used to have.

  2. Great post, you've used up loads! I've also tried the Naked Boost hair treatment and HATED the scent. I think I ended up giving it half full to my sister who liked the scent a lot more than I ever did! x
