August Empties

Monthly empties are one of my favourite posts - I enjoy seeing how many products people use up and which products they did or didn't enjoy using. I find that these kind of posts help me choose which products to buy and which ones to avoid altogether.

I found that August flew by way too quickly - with the trip to America and spending a good week or two round Liam's afterwards, I didn't use up many products.

Lacura 3 in 1 Facial Cleansing Wipes x2
I use these for literally everything and not just for taking off my makeup. They're cheap, they're cheerful and they do the job. I would purchase these again and again.
Allura 75 Cotton Pads x2
I had taken a full pack to America and had a half pack hanging around in my drawer. They're pretty much all you can ask for in cotton pads. Definitely buy some more when my stocks of these are running low.
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Full Splendor Conditioner
I really enjoyed this conditioner - it helped my hair out when it was going through it's many bad days. It made my hair feel so soft and healthy. I may repurchase this in the future.
Australian Bodycare Argan Cream with Vitamin E
I cannot imagine life without this - it's the only moisturiser that I've tried that I enjoy so much. It sinks in quickly, it smells nice and it's pretty cheap. I will gladly repurchase this again and again.
VO5 Nourish Me Truly Shampoo & Conditioner Samples
I had used these the minute we had gotten into our hotel room in Salt Lake City and my hair couldn't thank me enough - it made my hair feel so nourished and full of life again after a combined 14 hours up in the air. I will definitely be purchasing these in full size.
Sanex Shower Gel Sample
I can't really say if this did much for my skin or not as I couldn't tell the difference. I prefer the shower gels that I use to this anyway. I won't be purchasing this in full size.
Palmers Cocoa Body Butter Sample
This little sample had lasted me a whole week as I had used this on my face when it was feeling dry. This definitely did the trick and helped my face feel normal again. I may buy this in full size.
Upper Canada Foaming Bath Milk in Warm Honey Nectar
This was something that my Grandma gave me and I could see why she didn't want it - as a foaming bath milk, I thought it would make some bubbles but I was so wrong. The scent was nice but I didn't enjoy it as it didn't make bubbles. I don't think you can purchase this in the UK so I won't be purchasing it.
Salon System Individual Lashes in Medium Ultra Black
I've been using these time and time again and I really like how they make my lashes look. They're so easy to use and really good value for money. I will gladly repurchase this again and again.
What did you use up throughout August?
