Empties Post #1 August

Welcome to my first ever empties post!! I never thought I was one to use up many products each month but just looking at this lot proves me wrong! I do however tend to rotate my products rather than sticking to one product until its finished, so this is something I need to improve on. So many samples I should use up before my full sized items. Anyway on to what I've used this month.

 Excuse the bad pictures, I thought it would be best to take in the bathroom but lighting was really bad so have my flash on the camera.

The Earth Works Cosmetics - Lemon & Geranium Body Oil 80g, Lemon & Geranium Body Melt 6g and Grapefruit Facial Exfoliator 6g. I enjoyed using all 3 of these products, so will definitely repurchase.

Rituals - Qi Gong 24h Anti-perspirant Spray, Happy Buddah Foaming Shower Gel, Good Luck Sugar Scrub These are from my Rituals Haul back in June. Huge Rituals fan so will probably repurchase, possibly in a different scent. I love the foaming shower gels.

Urban Veda - Purifying Day Cream - Another product I've stocked up on, I have the full size already and a few sample sizes. I love the tingling feeling it has on my skin.

FCUK Body Polish - I got this in a gift set from boots in the January sales (finally got round to using it) I like more of a harsher exfoliator than this. It didn't do much for me so will not repurchase.

Laura Mercier - Ambre Vanille Souffle Body Creme - Love love love this body cream, it smells good enough to eat. Another item I've been lucky enough to find samples on ebay, so I now have a few of these stocked up.

SPAVita Berry Treatment Shampoo/Conditioner - this came in my Memebox Hair & Body box you can see HERE. I managed to get 5 uses out of these little samples. Really liked the scent but not something I'd buy again.

Beauty Protector - Protect & Perfect Shampoo and Conditioner - A Birchbox own brand. I love this shampoo & conditioner and have bought full size of both already as well as extra sample sizes from ebay. My hair feels amazing after using these.

Aussie - Miracle Moist Shampoo - who doesn't love Aussie shampoo!? A great travel size, have bought full sizes of Aussie many times before and will always go back for more.

The Body ShopCamomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter 90ml - I'm a little sad to see this go, it's such a great cleanser but I have so many to use up so will not be repurchasing for now.

L'Oreal Paris - Casting Creme Gloss Conditioner - Ok so this actually comes in a home hair dye kit. I use them all the time when I dye my hair. Love the way it leaves my hair feeling moisturised. 

Pure Smile  - Gelee Labo Marmalade - I got this in a recent swap. This is a facial pack with an orange jam-like texture. It felt very odd applying this to my face but did leave my skin feeling soft and cleansed.

Petitfee - Dry Essence Foot Pack - This was from my memebox Foot Care 2. This was nice and my feet felt lovely after.

A'Kin - Lemongrass Shampoo and Lavender & Anthyliss Leave-In Conditioner. Love these and have still got a full sized conditioner from Sandra from my S/S Green Beauty Swap to finish using.

Cowshed - Grumpy Cow Uplifting Bath & Shower Gel - This is from my July LoveLula box. It's ok but nothing I will repurchase myself.

Sophyto - Total Protection Serum - I got this in my August LoveLula box. Was nice but wasn't really enough in the sample to decide if i'd buy full size.

Montagne Jeunesse - Manuka Honey Peel Off Face Mask - This left so weird. It will like putting real honey on my face. I only got 1 use of this but I think I could have gotten 2 if I applied a thinner layer. It took a while to dry but peeled off with no problems and my skin feel great after. Will repurchase.

Yes To Cucunbers - Facial Towelettes - These were from Birchbox. Always handy to have travel wipes. They are nothing special so wouldn't repurchase.
