July Empties

I'm not going to use anything else up - so here's what I've used this month:

Lancome Nutrix Royal Mains Hand Cream 100ml - simply adore this mega rich hand cream.  I always seem to have one on the go. I tend to pick them up when there are GWP deals on.

Mama Mio Skin Tight Toning Serum 30ml - this came in the WIMH trio. I'd say I liked this product the least out the three.  Didn't see any signs of toning although it was nice enough to use.  You may see a difference with a full size product.  I personally Wouldn't buy.

balance Me Skin Bright Hydrating Mist 60ml* - simply love this and I'll be buying it when my stash reduces.  The best toning and refreshing mist I have ever used.

Seascape Island Apothecary Uplift Body Wash* 300ml - an uplifting scent - great for morning showers.  See my review here

Creme de La Mer The Moisturizing Lotion 3ml - simply love this moisturiser and want to buy the full size at some point.  It just works!

Alison Claire So Remarkable Mango Body Butter 50ml - a lovely mango scented body butter.  See my review here. I'll maybe pick this up again when my stash goes down.

Gielly Green Classic Shampoo 50ml - I'm a huge Gielly Green fan although I think I maybe only slightly prefer their repair shampoo.  Lovely to use though with a great scent.

Dr Bronner's 18-in-1 Peppermint Castile Soap 59ml - simply love this for cleaning my make up brushes (or the bath).  Peppermint's my favourite scent. Have a couple to use but will stock up when they are finished.

Creme de La Mer The Moisturising Soft Cream 5ml - loved this.  See my mini review here

Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cleanser 100ml - loved this cleanser. See my review here. I'd maybe buy it again.

Trilogy Rosehip Oil Anti-Oxidant+ 2.5ml - one of my favourite face oils. I've got a little stash of these mini ones (thanks Julie!)

Jo Hansford Intensive Masque 40ml - this came from the Latest in Beauty Advent Calendar - loved it - see my review here.

Phyto Phytobaume Express Conditioner 20ml - this came from a Feel Unique box many moons ago! I miss the Feel Unique Beauty Boxes! I quite liked this and I'd maybe re-purchase.

Kai Perfume Oil - a teeny tiny roll on bottle in one of my favourite exotic floral scents.  Will pick it up again after I've used up some that are in my stash (only downside is it's expensive)  You can buy it at Cult Beauty see here.

Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Make Up - in shade 4 - simply love this light and easy to blend foundation. It's not cheap but it does last quite a while.  Will definitely buy again.

Gielly Green Classic Conditioner 50ml - nice to use but I prefer the repair option so probably wouldn't buy this.

Abahna Frangipani & Orange Blossom Bath Oil 100ml* - simply love this beautifully scented bath oil.  It featured in my 5 Bath Oils post - see here

Botanicals Hand & Nail Serum 10g - loved this fennel scented oil. Will definitely buy again at some point.  See my review here.

L'Occitane Gel Douche Universel Shower Gel 50ml - loved this citrussy shower gel. It's been lovely to use in this hot weather.  Will maybe pick up full size soon.

Jo Loves Pomelo 2ml vial - this came in the British Beauty Blogger Edit Box - simply loved it and saving up for full size (and some of the other scents).

Bloom Remedies Sleep Easy Bath Oil 50ml - love this orange scented relaxing oil. Will buy again.

Melvita Apicosma Ultra Nourishing Body Balm 15ml - this also came in the BBB Edit box. Loved this rich sweet smelling balm and will definitely pick up full size soon.

Dr Hauschka Almond Soothing Body Wash 10ml - this came in a gift set. Love the light almond scent. Definitely want to pick up full size soon.
