July Empties!

This month I seem to have used up a good amount of products which i'm pretty proud about. I've used up a lot of things that i've been wanting to finish so i'm glad to be seeing them going now. 
Starting with haircare, i've been trying to use up some of the products i've had hanging around. First being the Charles Worthington Sensitive Detangling Spray, this was an okay product. It was gentle on my scalp but didn't do anything amazing so I wouldn't repurchase. I used up both the Ojon Hydrating Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner. These seemed to last a long time, the shampoo was okay, again I didn't find it did anything special. I did prefer the conditioner because it was light yet hydrating. These didn't seem to thicken my hair in any way so I wouldn't repurchase. Finally I have the Aussie Coloured Hair Protection + Shine Serum. I used to love this stuff but now I find it a bit too silicone feeling in my hair and I much prefer using oils so I wouldn't repurchase. 
Onto shower products, I used up the Organic Surge Softening Sugared Almond Shower Gel, I really enjoyed this product. It lasts ages and made my skin feel soft and clean, I would repurchased this but maybe in a different scent. I also finished the N Spa Blueberry Cream Pie Shower and Bath Gel, i've had this a while but I really did enjoy it. It's a great affordable bubble bath. I don't think they do this scent anymore but I would get it again in another scent. I also used up the Como Shambhala Invigorate Shower Gel when I was on holiday. This was an okay shower gel, it didn't lather up enough for my liking and I wasn't in love with the scent so I would repurchase this. I finally finished the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Scrub which I had been using since Christmas. I really enjoyed this scrub and the scent was so lovely so I would consider repurchasing it in the future.
I used up yet another The Body Shop Body Butter, this one is the Satsuma scent. which smells strongly of oranges which I love and was very moisturising. I would purchase this again in the future. I also finished a mini of the Coconut Body Butter which is probably my favourite one they do, I adore the scent and i've found it to be one of the most moisturising body butters they do. I would definitely repurchase this.
I haven't used up a lot of skincare products this month. I did finish a sample of the Caudalie Makeup Remover Cleansing Water, I did enjoy using this but I didn't find it removed my makeup as well as my Bioderma so for that reason I wouldn't repurchase it. I finally finished my sample of the Origins GinZing eye cream which I got in a set at Christmas. I loved using this eye cream in the morning and I definitely want to pick up the full size soon, especially since I was so impressed with how long the sample lasted.
Only one makeup product this month which is the L'oreal Lumi Magique Concealer, I loved using this under eyes and it fast became one of my favourite concealers. It is so light and looks natural under the eyes yet covers well. I'm trying out something else at the moment but I definitely think I will be going back to this soon. 

So that's this months empties. I'm happy that i've used up a good amount of products this month. Have you used up any of your favourite products this month?
