Empties // July 2013

I love writing these posts because it gives me a sense of accomplishment, however small, of finishing some of the far too high pile of beauty products I have.

I managed quite a few this month and can't wait to use up more next month!

Dr Brandt Lineless Eye Cream - I really liked using this, I received this sample as part of a birthday gift about two years ago and it really lasted a very long time, (I don't use eye cream every day even though I should!) I would repurchase.

Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover - I like this, it's a biphase makeup remover and works well. I already have a large size and would repurchase.

Bioeffect EGF Serum - I know many bloggers rave about how amazing this is but apart from making my skin incredibly soft in the morning I don't think it did much. The sample was tiny though and I'm still quite young so maybe that's why I didn't see an effect? I wouldn't repurchase.

Coola Mineral Tinted Sunscreen SPF20 - I hated this unfortunately, I think because of the tint, me and tinted sunscreens don't go together. Would not repurchase.

Abahna White Grapefruit & May Chang Bath and Shower Gel - I'm glad this was used up as I've had it for so long, I wouldn't repurchase as it didn't lather up that well and the scent wasn't for me.

Nivea Pearl Beauty Anti- Perspirant Deodorant - a basic deodorant, probably would repurchase.

Boots Conditioning Nail Polish Remover - this is ok if you have pretty strong, resistant to anything nails, after using this I found my nails started peeling so I wouldn't repurchase.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish - I love this stuff! The little grains exfoliate, it lathers up and smells just like stawberries. Can be a little overwhelming at first but settles down quickly. I have two more waiting to be used.

No7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes - I have around 10 of these thanks to the No7 vouchers that seem to always be around and I like the wipes, they stay hydrated for a very long time and I use them for pretty much anything. Good for sensitive eyes too.

Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes Dry Skin Mask - I really liked this, very hydrating for the skin, best used in Winter though I think unless you suffer with dry skin all year round. Would repurchase.

Yves Rocher 24H Comfort Nourishing Cream for Dry/Very dry Skin - This was a great night moisturiser, it absorbed very quickly and was very hydrating. I'm not sure whether I'd repurchase though because I don't have dry skin all year round. I'd also like to be able to purchase in a store, I've only found it online.

Bliss Best of Skintentions Daily Moisturiser SPF15/PA++ - This also took ages to use up and I have another to finish. It was great for everyday sun protection and moisturised well after cleansing, I don't think I'd repurchase for a third time though.

Nivea Smooth Nourishing Hand Cream - Love this hand cream, would definitely repurchase.

No7 Cleanse & Care Eye Make-up Remover - I'm fed up of using this eye makeup remover, I think it's too oily for my liking and I don't really like the old packaging. I have about two more to use up thanks to the No7 vouchers, if this didn't go down by £5 I wouldn't buy it at all. I'd say it's pretty average.
