August 2013 Empties

Another month down, another month's worth of empty products to share with you! This month I have a nice range of body products and skincare, so let's hop right into it! :)


John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Wash x2 (reviewed here) I really love this scent, and I brought these two travel size bottles to the cottage with my earlier in August. I would purchase the full size.

Mereadesso Face + Neck Toning Gel x2 - Again, these were travel size pouches that I brought on vacation with me. I didn't really like this product, as it left my face with a slightly sticky feeling.

Style Lab Satin Hair Serum (sample) - This product was good, but the sample was too tiny to use it more than once to see if I really liked it.

Kate Sommerville 360 Tanning Towelette x2 - I really like these tanning towels, they're super easy to use and don't leave any streaks. I would repurchase.

Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm (reviewed here) - I loved this lip balm! It really is hydrating, and stays on my lips for a long time. I would repurchase.


Sephota + Pantone Alchemy of Color Illuminating Primer* - I loved this primer! This jar contained a ton of product, and I've been using it daily for months. This formula really helped bring a glow to my skin. 

Lush Ultimate Shine Shampoo Bar - This was my first solid shampoo bar from Lush, and I really liked it! It can be a bit drying and clarifying, so I used this one once weekly. I would repurchase, but right now I'm trying out Lush's Seanik. 

Kate Sommerville 360 Face Self Tanning Pad x2 - These little pads are really easy to use, and bring a nice, subtle colour to my face. I would repurchase.

Clarins Daily Energizer Cream-Gel - This moisturizer was alright, but I wasn't a huge fan of the consistency. I wouldn't purchase the full size. 

SpaRitual Look Inside Organic Moisturizing Lotion* - This formula was quite thick and very hydrating! I think that this body lotion would be perfect to use in the Winter. 

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra (reviewed here) - I absolutely loved this facial moisturizer! This hydrated my skin and sunk in quickly. I would definitely repurchase. 


Vichy Normaderm Deep Purifying Cleansing Gel* (reviewed here) - This is a great cleanser for anyone with light to moderate acne. This product definitely helps to control oils and combat any blemishes. I've used this before and will definitely use again!

Lush Happy Hippy Shower Gel* (reviewed here) - I love Lush's shower gels, and I really enjoyed this great citrusy scent. This formula lathers up really nicely, and the scent lingers slightly on my skin. 

Pear's by Suave Naturals Wild Strawberry Conditioner - I loved the scent of this product, and although it was a lighter consistency, it still did conditioner my course hair well. I would repurchase. 

Eve Caron Cucumber Soap - I would have liked this soap to have a heavier cucumber scent, as it is extremely light. But the soap does lather very nicely. 

Bath & Body Works Secret Wonderland Triple Moisture Body Cream - I've had this bottle lying around for quite a while, so I'm really happy I finally finished it off! I really like this scent, and I would repurchase. 

Benefit Ring My Bella Perfume* (reviewed here) - I was completely obsessed with this perfume! This was my Summer scent this year, and I'm so sad to have emptied out this bottle so quickly. I will definitely repurchase, I just need to finish off a few other perfumes in my stash first.


Lush Sandy Santa - This was actually released in Lush's Christmas 2012 Collection, and I finally finished it off! This was an amazing exfoliant, I really loved it. If this is a part of the 2013 holiday collection, I will definitely repurchase.

Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator - This was a nice product, but I don't know that I liked it enough to splurge on the full size.

Bath & Body Works Fresh Picked Wildberries PocketBac - I love these little hand sanitizers from BBW, and I always have one in my purse. This berry scent was really nice, and I would repurchase.

Bath & Body Works Coral Reef & Berry Sangria Gentle Foaming Hand Soap - I loved both scents, and as always, I will continue to repurchase my hand soaps from BBW! :)

Again, I can't believe how many products I go through each and every month! Please leave me a comment letting me know what products you've used up recently! :)


  1. That's a lot of empties! I need to keep better track of all the things I use up. I feel like I rarely do that. I hope you'll have a chance and stop by my blog. All about Beauty. Life. and DIY. If you ever have an OTD, LOTD, hair or nail tutorial, or a fun fashion DIY, I'd love for you to share it at "That's my Style" Link party every Friday. Don't have anything to share? Stop by anyway for beauty tutorial and fun DIY projects. Hope to see you there. :)
